Appearing at a rally in Sioux Center, Iowa, 2016 GOP presidential front runner Donald Trump jokingly said his fans are so loyal to him that he could shoot somebody and “not lose any voters.”
The billionaire businessman, who seems to get a bump in the polls every time he makes an outrageous statement, may not be far off the mark with his comments.
“They say I have the most loyal people,” Trump said, “Where I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters, okay? It’s like incredible.”
As members of the crowd laughed, Trump added, “You know they say, Trump’s voters are — I’m at 68, 69 percent — I’m at 90 percent total [in the polls].”
Trump then slammed the other GOP candidates by saying their support is either “soft” or “they have no people.”

‘It’s very disrespectful to me — I’m in my 70s!’: Dr Fauci knocks down Trump claims about COVID-19 and the elderly
Dr. Anthony Fauci knocked down President Donald Trump's claims about the coronavirus affecting only older people.
The infectious disease expert apparently took umbrage to the president's assurance to rallygoers Monday in Ohio that only "elderly people with heart problems and other problems" can get sick from the COVID-19 pandemic.
“In some states, thousands of people — nobody young," Trump told his supporters. "Below the age of 18, like, nobody. They have a strong immune system, who knows? Take your hat off to the young, because they have a hell of an immune system. But it affects virtually nobody. It’s an amazing thing.”

Lincoln Project delivers damning super cut of all the times Trump has shamelessly sucked up to Putin
The Lincoln Project on Tuesday released a damning super cut showing how often President Donald Trump has shamelessly sucked up to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The new video, which features Britney Spears's "Oops, I Did It Again" as its soundtrack, begins with Trump refusing to say whether he believed that the Russian government was responsible for poisoning Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny.
"Uuuuhhhh, we'll talk about that at another time," the president said this week of Navalny's poisoning.
