Wisconsin swing voters turn on Trump: ‘He’s a dirty crook that lies, cheats and steals’

Published

on

Swing voters in Wisconsin — which was crucial to Donald Trump’s 2016 election win — have had enough of the president and his “lies.”

The president barely won the state, where he got about 22,000 more votes than Hillary Clinton, and some voters who had previously backed Barack Obama before casting ballots for Trump are unhappy with their choice, reported Axios.

“I think he’s a dirty crook that lies, cheats, and steals when he can,” said George Engelmann, a 49-year-old Obama/Trump voter. “There’s just a plethora of things that are still coming out.”

An Axios reporter watched a focus group last week of swing voters in Wisconsin that was conducted by the research firms Engagious and Focus Pointe Global, and participants said Trump’s personality flaws outweighed a strong economy and low unemployment numbers.

“He’s been caught in a lot of lies,” said Adam K., a 47-year-old Obama/Trump voter. “You know, just admit that you made a mistake and say ‘I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have said that.'”

Amanda S., a 39-year-old Obama/Trump voter, said she couldn’t overlook Trump’s personal failings.

“He’s getting stuff done, but he lies,” she said. “I don’t think he’s a very good person, but he’s getting stuff done, so it’s hard.”

Lisa White, who voted for Mitt Romney in 2012 and then Hillary Clinton in 2016, said she would probably not vote for Trump next year.

“He’s done a lot for jobs and the economy,” White said, “but I’m all about the way people treat people, and if you’re going to be a jerk, then you kind of don’t need to be the face of America.”

‘Is Ireland one of those countries you want to invade’: Trump once ‘joked’ John Bolton wants ‘to nuke them all’

Published

Even President Donald Trump recognizes that John Bolton is a war-loving hawk, Axios reported Sunday.

In a conversation that included the Irish prime minister, Trump asked Bolton, "John, is Ireland one of those countries you want to invade?"

The scene was during the annual St. Patrick's Day visit. Typically it's a photo-op, a handshake, and men in green ties with a shamrock sprig in their jacket pocket. Trump managed to turn it into an awkward scene for everyone.

Mueller probably won’t be giving new information — here’s why that can still sink Trump

Published

on

Former special counsel Robert Mueller will appear in Congress this week to testify for two hours about the report he authored on the case of Russian collusion.

The hearing is set for Wednesday, though Mueller has said that he won't have any additional information other than what is in his report. A Washington Post report used examples of past Mueller testimony to outline what can be anticipated. The reality, however, is that regardless of whether Mueller sticks to the report or not, he'll deliver enough to put the president in a difficult situation.
