Fox News host Neil Cavuto on Thursday speculated that Sarah Huckabee Sanders was leaving her position as the White House press secretary because of President Donald Trump’s recent interview with ABC News.
“The timing of this is odd,” Cavuto said. “Just after the George Stephanopoulos interview with the president, the hypothetical came up about accepting intelligence from a foreign source and the president of course reacted the way he did. He said yeah, I’d be open to it. Maybe he’s pointing the finger, why did you get me into this, Sarah Sanders?”
Hugo Gurdon of the Washington Examiner, however, said he wasn’t sure if that is what happened.
“It’s an interesting theory. I don’t know that that is the case. I suspect there wouldn’t have been such a fulsome farewell if there was friction between them,” he remarked.
“Sarah Sanders was working at the interface between the White House on the one hand and the press on the other, a fantastic clash between the two. She’s been dealing with that immensely tense and difficult relationship,” Gurdon continued.
“You know, having to speak on behalf of the president and the administration and the White House, you know, every day, day in and day out. I’m sure that that’s extremely wearing.”
University of Florida students get threatening emails warning them to vote for Trump — or else
On Tuesday, the Miami Herald reported that University of Florida students are receiving threatening emails with the subject line "Vote for Trump or else!"
"Alachua County officials were made aware of the emails on Tuesday morning. In one of the emails, the sender told a voter to 'vote for Trump on Election Day or we will come after you,' according to a copy obtained by the Miami Herald," reported Ana Ceballos and Carli Teproff. "'Change your party affiliation to Republican to let us know you received our message and will comply,' the email said. 'We will know which candidate you voted for. I would take it seriously if I were you.'"
Trump may strip supposed ‘anarchist’ cities of federal COVID relief funding: report
A report uncovered Tuesday night shows federal funding potentially being slashed in sanctuary cities like New York, Portland, Ore., Washington, D.C. and Seattle, Wash. The areas on the chopping block include coronavirus relief, HIV treatment, newborn screenings, and other programs that regularly help the middle and lower class residents of these states.
In the new documents obtained by Politico, President Donald J. Trump referred to the sanctuary cities as “anarchist jurisdictions."A month earlier in a Sept. 2 order, Trump called on federal agencies to limit funding to jurisdictions that “disempower” police departments and promote “lawlessness" -- a move that stemmed from protests over systemic racism and police violence.
Trump’s ad-libbed remarks thoroughly undermined what he was reading off the teleprompter
At President Donald Trump's rally in Erie, Pennsylvania on Tuesday, he warned that if Joe Biden is elected, he will be too boring for people to even care about government. "Nobody's gonna be interested in politics anymore," he said.
Ironically, according to CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale, Trump's comments were ad-libbed — and his teleprompter at that moment noted that Biden was an extreme left-winger who will uproot Americans' way of life.
Trump's prepared texts warn that Biden is a radical who will make various extreme and destructive changes to people's lives.
