Trump whines that ‘this Bomb stuff’ is slowing Republican ‘momentum’ in midterm elections

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Friday publicly complained about the news coverage that is being devoted to the multiple explosive devices that have been sent all week to his critics.

“Republicans are doing so well in early voting, and at the polls, and now this ‘Bomb’ stuff happens and the momentum greatly slows — news not talking politics,” the president complained. “Very unfortunate, what is going on. Republicans, go out and vote!”

Although the president had initially tried to strike a conciliatory tone when news of the explosive devices sent to the Obamas and Clintons broke earlier this week, he has since pivoted back to attacking the media for purportedly covering him unfairly.

This is the first time, however, that the president has publicly mused about the political implications of the attempted bombings. Fox New pundits all week have been claiming that these explosive devices are part of a hoax concocted by Democrats to distract from the caravan of immigrants in Mexico that’s headed to the United States.

Democratic prosecutors on Friday wrapped up three days of arguments for seeking Donald Trump's removal from office, as the US president's lawyers prepared to take their turn presenting his defense in the Senate's historic impeachment trial.

For a final eight-hour stretch, the 100 senators listened as Democrats argued that Trump abused the power of the presidency in pressuring Ukraine to launch investigations that would help him politically and then sought to block efforts by Congress to investigate.

Democrats said they had met the burden of proof as they warned Republicans that Trump would remain a grave danger to the nation if left in office.
