Trump is losing patience with Kushner over border wall advice to ‘dig in’

Published

on

The government shutdown is in its fifth week and negotiations have made little progress. According to the Washington Post, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner has been working behind the scenes to encourage him to hold on and fight for his border wall because he thinks that Democrats will “crack” soon.

The Post reported that Trump took a jab at Kushner during a meeting about the shutdown and border wall.

“Apparently, Jared has become an expert on immigration in the last 48 hours,” Trump said according to The Post.

This is the longest government shutdown in history and thousands of Americans are struggling to meet their basic needs. “Convinced that Senate Democrats will eventually crack and that there are votes for a bipartisan agreement, Kushner has urged the president to dig in,” the report said.

Even though Kushner has been able to influence Trump before with the criminal just reform bill, some Democrats still see him as a non-factor.

“He is totally a nonentity,” a senior Democratic aide told The Post. The report also claims that Trump’s recent proposals to reopen the government had “Kushner’s imprints” all over it.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) said that Kushner “doesn’t have experience” to help reopen the government. “To the extent he can build upon that, perhaps he can be helpful,” Jeffries said. “But he’s going to have to move off the notion that Democrats are going to pay a $5.7 billion ransom note.”

“Trump’s patience with Kushner’s involvement could become strained if Democrats continue to wave off Trump’s offer and hold firm,” an official said to The Post.

Fox News is so obsessed with Ocasio-Cortez they said her name three times as much as CNN or MSNBC

Published

on

It's clear that Fox News and other right-wing reporters are trying to create boogymen in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A new analysis by CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, revealed that the conservative network has said Ocasio-Cortez's name more than CNN and MSNBC combined.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"
