On Wednesday, President Donald Trump delivered remarks at the Lima Army Tank Plant a few hours away from Lordstown, Ohio.
Standing in front of tanks, President Trump once again tore into the late Senator John McCain.
“So I have to be honest, I’ve never liked him much. Hasn’t been for me,” Trump said. “I really probably never will,” he added.
“John McCain received a fake and phony dossier,” Trump continued. “It was paid for by crooked Hillary Clinton. He got it. He didn’t give it to me, he turned it over to the FBI,” Trump said.
“I’m a very loyal person,” the President added.
He went on, lashing out at McCain for his vote to not overturn the Affordable Care Act and his role in wars in the Middle East.
He also took credit for McCain’s funeral, which he was not invited to.
“I gave John McCain the kind of funeral that he wanted, which as president, I had to approve,” Trump said.
“I don’t care about this, I didn’t get a thank you — that’s okay. We sent him on the way. But I wasn’t a fan of John McCain.”
‘The president is lying’: Trump gets immediately debunked by CNN after claiming he stopped ‘send her back’ chant
President Donald Trump said Thursday that he stopped the North Carolina rally crowd from chanting "send her back" during a rant about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN). But CNN immediately called him out for the false claim.
"I didn’t like that they did it and I started speaking very quickly," Trump told the press. "Excuse me. Really? If you would have heard, there was a tremendous amount of noise and action and everything else. I started very quickly. And I think you know that. Maybe you’re giving me too much credit. You’re used to giving me too much credit. Thank you, everybody. I will try. I will certainly try, yes."
Trump’s racism isn’t a grand plan to win in 2020 — he’s just a ‘blithering idiot’: GOP strategist
President Donald Trump over the last week has made overtly racist attacks on four Democratic women of color, which has led to speculation that the president believes using racism is the key to winning reelection in 2020.
However, Republican strategist Stuart Stevens, who is currently working for Trump primary challenger Bill Weld, says it would be a mistake to confuse Trump's bigoted impulses with a well thought out battle plan.
"There is always this need to attribute this master plan to Trump because otherwise, you have to come to terms with the fact that he’s a blithering idiot," Stevens said in an interview with the Huffington Post.
Here is why Nancy Pelosi allowed a House impeachment vote
Admitting that he isn't privy to insider knowledge from the Democratic leadership, Bloomberg columnist Jonathan Bernstein suggested that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may be playing a much longer game on the possibility of impeachment hearings on Donald Trump than her detractors believe.
Wondering, "Is Nancy Pelosi closer to impeachment?' Bernstein writes, "Usually, when a regular bill or resolution has been introduced, it’s then referred to committee. If the majority party doesn’t want to consider the bill, it will die with no further action. Under House rules, however, any member can force an impeachment resolution onto the floor as pending business. That’s what [Rep. Al] Green (D-TX) did Wednesday."
