A political action committee that backed President Donald Trump’s bid in 2016 has now grown so disillusioned with him that it is trying to recruit right-wing polemicist Ann Coulter to challenge him in 2020.

The Washington Times reports that the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC has grown so upset at Trump’s failure so far to build his promised border wall, that it now believes an even tougher immigration hardliner is needed to finally get the job done.

“I hope Ann Coulter will give serious consideration to running against Trump in the primary and run on a MAGA platform offering conservative voters a pledge to keep her promises… unlike Trump!” the PAC’s president, William Gheen, tells the Washington Times.

Gheen has also been particularly upset that Trump has offered a three-year extension of DACA protections for undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States by their parents when they were children.

Writing on its official website, ALIPAC accused Trump of caving to son-in-law Jared Kushner for granting “amnesty” to these immigrants.

“In reaction to President Trump sending his lifelong Democrat son-in-law Jared Kushner to pass DACA Amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants into law, which violates his campaign promises to end DACA and oppose Amnesty, ALIPAC is announcing a campaign to draft Ann Coulter to run in the 2020 GOP Primary as the new MAGA candidate,” the PAC wrote.

President Donald Trump has a lot of options available to him when it comes to his attempt to steal the election. That doesn't mean they'll work, however.

In an interview with Democratic "super-lawyer" Bob Bauer, "The Circus's" John Heilemann listed a few scenarios for Trump trying to steal the election.

"We already have an electoral infrastructure -- a voting system -- that is not always adequately resourced or supported," Bauer explained. "You take that system, you layer on top of it a pandemic, you lay on top of that destructive behavior by one of the major political parties who espouses this kind of nonsense, and you add on top of that the internet-distributed misinformation plays, and that just means that the task that you have to address these contingencies is much larger than it's been as a structural matter any time in the past."

Will American elections ever again be legitimate?

Published

Only an established, legal “right to vote“ can defeat Republican voter suppression.

Republican politicians and conservative commentators are shocked, shocked! that Chief Justice John Roberts would say that people who voted before election day in Pennsylvania but their ballots were delayed by Lewis DeJoy’s sabotage of the Post Office should have their vote counted.

Increasingly, this election is coming down to the simple question of how effective 40 years of concerted Republican voter suppression efforts will be.

Their main strategy, particularly since George and Jeb Bush got together in 2000 to use a Texas felon list to purge 90,000 Black people off voting roles in Florida, has been removing the names of people who are legitimate voters.
