Looking forward to seeing that "full and complete" health care plan that @Donald J. Trump has promised he will sign by Aug 2.
Meant to type “As always, foreign policy begins at home!”
The United States would be in a much stronger position to criticize China for this if @Donald J. Trump had not just floated the idea of postponing US elections. So much for being tough on China. And as always, foreign policy beating at home. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/31/world/asia/hong-kong-election-delayed.html
Fact is, this concern is not limited to Democrats. Some Republicans are speaking privately about what to do if Trump refuses to leave or otherwise questions the results.
“I don’t think he plans to leave the White House. He doesn’t plan to have fair and unfettered elections. I believe that he plans to install himself in some kind of emergency way to continue to hold onto office,” Democratic Rep. James Clyburn says about Pres. Trump. #CNNSOTU
"Several people familiar with the matter told The Post that information is sometimes withheld from Trump, who often reacts badly to reports that he thinks might undermine what he considers his good relationship with Putin." https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2020/07/30/trumps-four-pinocchio-interview-russian-bounties/
@Sam Vinograd If people are withholding critical national security information from the president because he "reacts badly to it" they are culpable, are derelict in their duty & should be held accountable. No matter how flawed the president is, their job is to provide him with the whole truth.
The White House briefings have become insignificant to the job of the press corps and even to the president, who doesn’t always watch the theatrical displays done mostly for him. At least one network has declined to have McEnany appear as a guest. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/02/us/politics/kayleigh-mcenany.html?referringSource=articleShare
It will never stop being funny that a movement supposedly all about stopping the sexual exploitation of minors would choose Donald Trump as its champion
“The inclusion of QAnon symbols in official campaign media, previously unreported, sent shock waves through the QAnon community, whose primary aim is to be noticed by Trump.” How the WH and Trump campaign have elevated a conspiracy to reach its believers. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/how-the-trump-campaign-came-to-court-qanon-the-online-conspi...
Two weeks ago, Trump claimed he would sign a “full and complete health-care plan” within two weeks. There is no evidence of such a plan. @Anne Rumsey Gearan @Amy Goldstein + @Seung Min Kim report https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-obamacare-promise/2020/08/01/856ce250-d348-11ea-8d32-1...
