Trump’s 2016 campaign still has massive overdue bills for law enforcement providing security

Published

on

The Center for Public Integrity reported just after the 2016 election that Donald Trump might tout his love for law enforcement but he hasn’t paid his bills to them.

Two years (to the day) after that report, Dave Levinthal said that the president still hasn’t paid his bills.

“President Trump today met with a group of sheriffs and had kind words for them,” Levinthal tweeted before quoting Trump. “‘I’m with some of the great law enforcement people. A lot of them are friends of mine. I’ve known them for a long time, and they’ve been fantastic people. Fantastic men and women.’ [The Center for Public Integrity] reported two years ago that Trump’s presidential committee was ignoring law enforcement and security bills sent to it by various municipalities. When last we checked in late 2018, the bills remained unpaid.”

Trump regularly holds up law enforcement as his heroes, but when it comes to paying them, it seems he’s no longer supportive.

During a May 2018 event celebrating officers killed in the line of duty, Trump said, “We will protect those who protect us.”

“I especially want to speak to the young sons and daughters who join us here today,” Trump continued. “I want you to know that your moms and dads are among the bravest Americans to ever live. When danger came, when darkness fell, when destruction loomed, they did not flinch. They were not afraid they did not falter they stared down danger, raced down alleys, chased down criminals, kicked down doors and faced down evil. Brave.”

These so-called “brave heroes” put their own lives on the line for Trump before he was the president. It’s unclear why the campaign doesn’t feel they should be paid.

According to campaign finance reports, Trump’s campaign has already raised over $100 million.

Longtime Trump loyalist warns the president that his racist tweets are about to permanently stain his image

Published

On Tuesday, former Trump administration official Anthony Scaramucci criticized President Trump for telling four freshman congresswomen to go back to their own countries. All four are American citizens.

Scaramucci accused the president of playing to his base, in a way that has dangerous manifestations: for the president and the country.

“He’s blowing very hard on a dog-whistle that every ethnic group that’s landed in the United States has had to hear,” Scaramucci told the BBC.

“I don’t think the president is a racist, but here’s the thing: if you continue to say and act in that manner, then we all have to look at him and say, ‘OK, well, maybe you weren’t a racist, but now you’re turning into one.'”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Tuesday issued an unusual defense of President Donald Trump's racist remarks against four Democratic congresswomen by comparing the president to an internet troll.

According to Politico reporter Burgess Everett, Cruz deflected criticism of Trump's racist tweets against Reps. Rashiba Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) by arguing that "lefties on Twitter every day" tell him to "go back" to Canada, where he was born in 1970.
