Sen. Elizebeth Warren (D-MA) revealed at Wednesday’s Democratic presidential debate that she has a plan to “deal with” obstruction from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) if she becomes president.

At the first Democratic debate of the 2020 election cycle, host Chuck Todd asked Warren about what he called “the Mitch McConnell thing.”

“You have a lot of ambitious plans,” Todd said. “Do you have a plan to deal with Mitch McConnell? If you don’t beat him in the Senate and he is still the Senate majority leader, it’s plausible you can be president with a Republican Senate.”

“Do you have a plan to deal with Mitch McConnell?” Todd asked.

“I do,” Warren said, pausing to allow applause to subside. “Here’s how I see this happening. Sure, I want to see us get a Democratic majority in the Senate.”

“But short of a Democratic majority, you better understand the fight still goes,” she added. “It starts in the White House and it means that everyone we energize in 2020 stays on the frontlines come January 2021. We have to push from the outside and have leadership from the inside and make this Congress reflect the will of the people.”

US President Donald Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday declared themselves united in a relentless fight against "terrorism," vowing a close, personal alliance in front of tens of thousands of Indian-Americans.

The two leaders, like-minded nationalists fond of fiery rallies and skeptical of traditional media, heaped praise on each other in an unusual joint appearance inside a football stadium in Houston.

To the bhangra beats of four drummers in saffron turbans, Trump in his dark suit and Modi in a yellow kurta and vest made a grand entrance with arms clenched together to ecstatic cheers from a crowd estimated by organizers at 50,000.

Will Trump peacefully vacate the Oval Office if he loses the presidential election in 2020? A lesson from 1800

Published

on

As primary season heats up in the United States, the Democrats are anxiously debating the best path to unseat Donald Trump in 2020. But the question of how to beat Trump is perhaps less urgent than the issue of whether he will accept defeat.

Trump has already questioned his loss of the 2016 popular vote with baseless accusations of voter fraud. He has also repeatedly toyed with the idea of extending his presidency beyond the eight-year limit enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, even trumpeting Jerry Falwell Jr.’s assertion that his first term be extended by two years to compensate for the Russia investigation. Perhaps most ominously, Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen warned while testifying before the House Oversight Committee in February 2019:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren accused the U.S. Congress of complicity in President Donald Trump's continued abuse of power late Friday, after reports surfaced of his alleged attempts to solicit foreign meddling in the 2020 presidential election, and reiterated her demand that Democrats use their majority in the House to pursue impeachment.

Warren's tweeted statement came hours after the Wall Street Journal reported that Trump urged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden's opposition to a Ukrainian prosecutor in 2016.
