Trump will never be as beloved as Mitt Romey in Utah: FiveThirtyEight writer

Published

on

A FiveThirtyEight elections writer pointed out the fault in Donald Trump’s logic when he claimed he “won big” over Utah Sen.-elect Mitt Romney.

“In Utah, the only constituency that matters for Romney (now), Romney won 63 [percent] in 2018,” reporter Geoffrey Skelley tweeted Wednesday night. “Trump won 45 [percent] there in 2016.”

Skelley quoted a much-talked-about Trump tweet from earlier in the day in which the president implored the former Massachusetts governor and onetime presidential nominee to be a “team player.

In response to an attempted clarification from coworker Jody Avirgan, Skelley noted that Trump was “using the wrong data point for what matters here (not for the first time).”

“National doesn’t matter,” the reporter wrote. “Utah does.”

LoBionco believes that Pence plans to run in 2024.

‘Trump literally just confessed to the crime’: Pennsylvania Democrat

Published

on

Rep. Brendan Boyle (D-PA) believes President Donald Trump confessed to bribing or extorting Ukraine in an effort to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.

The president told reporters Monday morning at the United Nations that he had withheld foreign aid from Ukraine as he discussed alleged corruption involving Biden, the Democratic presidential frontrunner.

"It's very important to talk about corruption," Trump. "If you don't talk about corruption, why would you give money to a country that you think is corrupt?...It's very important that on occasion you speak to somebody about corruption."
