Really, after all the Democrats and MSM have hit him over the head with Russian collusion, did President Trump really respond like that to George Stephanopoulos?
He said he would accept a foreign government’s assistance in an election. “It’s not an interference, they have information — I think I’d take it. If I thought there was something wrong, I’d go maybe to the FBI — if I thought there was something wrong. But when somebody comes up with oppo research, right, they come up with oppo research, oh let’s call the FBI.”
How, how could he answer like that and give them so much ammunition?
This just proves no matter how great the economy is or how much progress he makes in foreign affairs, this election will be close because of his mouth.
And Mr. President, no complaining about the fake news today. You gave George, a “Never Trumper”, full access for two days. Did you expect good coverage from him and ABC?
Did you see a House panel backed contempt charges for AG Barr and Commerce Secretary Ross?
This move proves how much tougher the Democratic congress members are than the Republicans were. Remember when the Republican Congress held AG Eric Holder in contempt for not providing information? Did they go the next step like the Dems are? No. This congress is changing the game.
The Democrats are so intent on not giving the President any victory that they are now stopping his plan to paint the new Air Force One red, white and blue. Think about that. Red, White and Blue is not good for them.
Democratic Rep. Joe Courtney on Wednesday threw a big wrench into President Donald Trump’s plans to paint the iconic Air Force One jets red, white and blue. During a marathon hearing of the House Armed Services Committee on a bill that will authorize Pentagon spending for 2020, Courtney introduced an amendment that restricts spending on any changes made to the white and sky-blue Boeing airplane.
“Courtney’s amendment, adopted by committee members on a 31-26 party line vote, would require congressional approval for excessive spending on ‘interior, paint and fixtures.'”
You know all the charges against the President from the left and MSM that he is running the government to profit his businesses? They ignore he donates his salary, and ignore that those business were worth less since the 2016 election. It was a straight out lie that they were allowed to get away with. Here’s an update from yesterday from Bloomberg that says last year the business reversed two years of declines. Look at how they presented it:
“Trump’s Net Worth Rises to $3 Billion Despite Business Setbacks. President Donald Trump’s net worth rose to $3 billion, a 5% gain over the past year, thanks to a jump in the value of an office-building deal he once sued to prevent”.
“The increase in Trump’s wealth reverses two years of declines and brings his net worth back to 2016 levels, according to figures compiled by the Bloomberg Billionaires Index from lenders, property records, securities filings, market data and a May 16 financial disclosure. It comes despite setbacks at his family company, including the cancellation of two new hotel chains and reduced business at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida and seven golf courses.”
Now considering the business and market growth shouldn’t his businesses be well beyond 2016 levels? Being President has cost him growth. It’s not him using the Presidency to grow his business.
Remember when Howard Schultz of Starbucks fame was the darling of the media and going to run for President? Today’s story about him:
“Starbucks billionaire Howard Schultz told campaign staff that he is making significant cuts to his team, as he suspends his political plans for the summer.” Schultz came into the office Wednesday for the first time in months and met with the staff, according to a person in the room. He announced that he was letting everyone go except those in senior leadership positions, adding he would not make a decision about running for president until after Labor Day.
A big story tonight will be about Republican Congressman Duncan Hunter. His wife, Margaret, who is facing a number of federal criminal charges (along with him) over allegations of diverting more than $250,000 in campaign funds to personal use, is set to plead guilty.
