BUSTED: Trump’s aides helped fire Republican official after GOP lost big in New York during 2018 midterms

Published

Top Donald Trump aides helped oust Richard Nixon’s son-in-law from a top Republican Party post, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

“In New York, where Mr. Trump was born, raised and ruminated for years about a political campaign of his own, the state Republican Party had a leadership change on Monday, moving from the genteel leadership of Edward F. Cox, the son-in-law of President Richard M. Nixon, to the grass-roots style of Nick Langworthy, of Erie County,” the newspaper noted.

“The former White House political director, Bill Stepien, was in regular contact with Mr. Langworthy, the chairman of the Erie County Republican Party, since December, as Mr. Langworthy worked to amass enough support to overtake Mr. Cox,” The Times explained, based on officials briefed on the discussions.

“In recent weeks, one of Mr. Trump’s White House aides, Dan Scavino, the digital director who is from Dutchess County, spoke with a local Republican official there, conveying that the president ‘likes’ Mr. Cox, but couldn’t understand why the party lost control of the State Senate last year, according to one person familiar with the discussion,” The Times explained.

According to Andrew S. Weiss, vice president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment, the American president is likely the best friend Russian President Vladimir Putin could wish for.

Pointing out that Trump's meeting with Putin in Osaka is only days away, Weiss, who worked on Russian affairs in the State Department, said the get-together is happening just as three government officials with the most experience dealing with Russia -- Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Joseph Dunford, the NSC’s in-house Russia expert Fiona Hill, and U.S. Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman -- are leaving the administration.

2020 Election

Conservative writer warns Democrats all the ways they could blow it in 2020

Published

on

On Tuesday, Never Trump conservative and The Bulwark editor Charlie Sykes wrote an editorial in Politico warning that Democrats could snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in 2020 — and urged them to not do anything foolish.

"Donald Trump remains historically unpopular because the past three years have cemented the public’s image of the president as a deeply dishonest, erratic, narcissistic, Twitter-addicted bully. As a result, a stunning 57 percent of voters say they will definitely not vote to reelect him next year and he trails Democratic challengers in key states," wrote Sykes.
