A Pennsylvania Republican voter made it clear to CNN’s Randi Kaye that she was no longer on President Donald Trump’s bandwagon, in a voter panel segment that aired Friday morning.
“You look at what is important, the pocket book issues, the stock market is booming, unemployment is at historic lows, the economy is strong they say,” said Kaye. “That still wouldn’t change your mind?”
“It’s a trend that has been going on before Trump came into office and he has continued it,” replied Beth Clark. The economy, she added, was doing well “somewhat in spite of Donald Trump,” and dropped the hammer.
“I have voted for a Republican for years, 40 plus years,” she said. “And I could not vote for him.”
Other voters chimed in.
“You know, if Donald Trump isn’t president two years from now, I don’t think that the economy is going to fall apart at the seams,” said Holly Kaeser-Fogg, with a laugh.
“If the economy happens to be good when he ends his term I’ll be really happy about it,” agreed Jim Lundberg. “But I’m not going to give Donald Trump all the credit.”
This is the energy executive who first exposed Trump’s Ukraine scandal: report
CNN host Chris Cuomo did a special investigative report by Drew Griffin looking at the money trail from Russia to President Donald Trump's Ukraine scandal.
"You probably don’t know Dale Perry, but history may record this energy executive as one of the first who sounded the alarm about what would become President Trump’s impeachment inquiry," said Griffin. "In April, Perry’s former business partner Andrew Favorov, now a director at Ukraine's state-owned gas company Naftogaz, says two shady characters had approached him, with a secret management plan to take over the management from the inside. Those two shady characters Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, are two low-level, Soviet-born businessmen from south Florida. And they were trying to clear the way for their own gas business."
Dr. Sanjay Gupta explains why Trump’s quick trip to Walter Reed raises more questions
President Donald Trump went to Walter Reed over the weekend, claiming that nothing was wrong, but CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta explained it wasn't a typical routine medical exam done every year for presidents.
Speaking Sunday, Dr. Gupta explained that medical issues are typically done by doctors on duty at the White House, and there isn't a need to go to the hospital.
"No question, this sounds a bit unusual," he said. "I mean typically even with this White House, we've gotten plenty of notice in the past that the president was going to be getting a physical exam, that it was going to take place at Walter Reed, which, it has in the past. Everyone institution-wide received noticed, and it doesn't seem like that happened in this case."
