Trump bitterly attacks top GOP donors after they threaten to pull funds: ‘My tax cut made them richer!’

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Tuesday angrily lashed out at the Koch Brothers, who have long been two of the biggest donors to the Republican Party, because they have started threatening to withhold donations to pro-Trump candidates.

“The globalist Koch Brothers, who have become a total joke in real Republican circles, are against Strong Borders and Powerful Trade,” the president wrote. “I never sought their support because I don’t need their money or bad ideas. They love my Tax & Regulation Cuts, Judicial picks and more.”

Trump then went on to accuse the Kochs of being ungrateful even though he “made them richer” with his tax cut. He then boasted that they weren’t as powerful as many people have made them out to be.

“Their network is highly overrated, I have beaten them at every turn,” he wrote. “They want to protect their companies outside the U.S. from being taxed, I’m for America First & the American Worker – a puppet for no one.”

The Kochs, whose donations helped fuel the Tea Party movement that opposed former President Barack Obama, have publicly slammed Trump over his immigration and trade policies. In particular, the Kochs have been opposed to Trump’s tariffs on steel and aluminum, as well as his policy of forcibly separating immigrant families apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Charles Koch this past weekend even said that he “didn’t care” if the GOP lost the House this fall.

Trump continues a conspiracy that never ended as he covers up the cover up of a crime

Published

It’s hard to know where to begin discussing the president’s commutation of Roger Stone’s sentence. So let’s start with what it means. It’s not a pardon. Donald Trump’s goombah is still a felon convicted of witness tampering and lying to the US Congress. He plans to appeal the guilty verdict. “Commutation” merely means he won’t go to jail.

The move was widely expected in Washington. Only the timing was in doubt. The president had hoped to wait until after the election, according to Bloomberg News, but Stone appears to have forced his hand. He feared prison would expose him to the new coronavirus, which can be fatal to people his age (67). Stone told a journalist Thursday that he believed the president would commute his sentence, because he stayed quiet while under pressure to cooperate. That statement, given the day before his 40-month sentence was to begin, was widely interpreted to mean: do it now or I start singing.

CNN host goes off on Trump as COVID-19 surges: ‘The president is peddling debunked illogical crap’

Published

During a segment on CNN this Monday, anchor Brianna Keilar had some harsh words for President Trump and his response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, starting out by saying that the U.S. is "losing its battle" against the virus.

"...the people who are supposed to be in charge of the national response to the pandemic instead are escalating their attacks on doctors," she said, pointing out that up to 60,000 Americans are testing positive for the virus, each day.

"They're doing this even though they won't mandate the use of masks which are proven to save lives," she said. "They're doing this because the President is continuing to make claims that the only reason the U.S. has a surge in cases is because of an increase in testing."

Published

on

Literally hours after providing reporters with a list of what an anonymous White House official called mistakes Dr. Anthony Fauci has made over the year on coronavirus, the White House turned the tables to use the veteran immunologist's words to praise President Donald Trump.

On Sunday in a statement to CNN the White House outlined "the number of times Dr. Fauci has been wrong on things."

Calling it a "new campaign of deception," CNN reported Monday morning that "the White House is trying to destroy the reputation of one of America's most respected public servants, Dr. Anthony Fauci, for telling the truth about how bad things are getting."
