President Donald Trump’s supporters are still in his corner and nothing will shake their dedication to his agenda — even if his legislation hurts them.

In a panel discussion with CNN, his supporters agreed that they were all fine with the increase in troop levels with Afghanistan.

“This is what he said he was going to do,” said Bobby Viera, criticizing former President Barack Obama for not doing what Trump is doing now.

Host Alisyn Camerota recalled Trump’s tweets attacking Obama’s troop increase in Afghanistan, wondering why it was bad for Obama to do it but it was strong for Trump to do it. Another supporter, Jimmy Dozier, explained that it was due to Trump’s consultation with his generals, while Obama ignored his, a talking point frequently pushed by the right-wing.

“He can do what he wants!” one supporter shouted over the rest, excusing the president contradicting himself.

“Yes! He’s Trump!” another shouted out.

When asked about how Trump is handling North Korea, supporter Daphne Goggins simply laughed.

“Kaboom! What are we waiting for?” asked Goggins. She said that she’s pleased with his strength.

Dozier agreed, saying that if Hillary Clinton was in office the stock market would not have been on the rise and alleged that North Korea would probably have already acted.

“Donald Trump is the biggest troll,” said Viera. He went on to say that both Democrats and Republicans are distracted by his Twitter account while he’s getting things done. Trump has yet to pass any significant legislation.

Camerota addressed Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA), who called on Congress to enact the 25th Amendment due to Trump’s apparent mental instability.

“President Trump is smarter than anyone in this room,” said Dozier. “He has made millions of dollars. He knows what he is doing.”

When it came to Trump’s response to the white supremacists and Nazis in Charlottesville, none of the people were “troubled” by it.

Trump brags Amy Coney Barrett will kill abortion rights: ‘I guess she maybe would’

Published

President Donald Trump told Fox News that he expects Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett to strike down Roe v. Wade and the right to have an abortion.

Trump made the remarks in an interview that aired Sunday on Fox & Friends after host Pete Hegseth noted that the president had previously said that his Supreme Court picks would "automatically" overturn Roe v. Wade.

"I didn't think it was for me to discuss that with her," Trump explained. "Because it's something that she's going to be ruling on. And this is what I was told -- although, I would have had the right to do that."

According to a report from Politico, Donald Trump's campaign has recruited an army of hundreds of volunteer lawyers who will supplement a team of hired attorneys to dispute vote totals and observe polling locations in an attempt to stave off an election defeat for the president on November 3rd.

Pointing out the effort to gear up for legal challenges began over a year ago, the report states "Republicans are preparing pre-written legal pleadings that can be hurried to the courthouse the day after the election, as wrangling begins over close results and a crush of mail-in ballots."

This GOP senator just proposed a bill to help Trump undermine the election

Published

on

A new bill proposed by Republican Sen. Rick Scott is "entirely unworkable," Slate reported Thursday evening, but demonstrates the GOP's intense desire to make sure millions of votes aren't counted in the general election by severely restricting the time frame during which they can be tallied.

The Orwellian-named "Help America Vote Act of 2020," which Scott proposed Thursday, would help to codify President Donald Trump's desire, stated last week, to ensure that the preliminary tally of votes on Election Day will count as the final vote count in the election.
