President Donald Trump will deliver a speech to a North Carolina audience Wednesday. The rally was designed to respond to the testimony of former special counsel Robert Mueller, but after the hearing date was moved, it left Trump without an adversary.
After starting a fight with four Congresswoman of color, Trump is now expected to justify his tweets telling the women to go back where they came from. The Trump campaign has struggled to convince Americans that Trump never said those words, instead, he told the women to leave the U.S. if he doesn’t like it. The phrase is a racist trope typically used by white nationalists.
Since Trump tweeted the comments Sunday, political commentators have noted that Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan, presumes that America isn’t great, and he should follow his own advice if he’d displeased with the United States.
The rally is set to begin at 7 p.m. EST, though sometimes Trump can run behind. You can watch the video below:
Fox’s Chris Wallace stunned as ‘flailing’ Trump tries to order around US companies while the stock market plunges
Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace seemed stunned by a series of angry tweets from Donald Trump on Friday morning, first attacking Fed Chair Jerome Powell for not lowering interest rates than exploding at China over a new round of tariffs.
Speaking with host Sandra Smith, Wallace sat and listened as she read off the president's Twitter complaints about economic events beyond his control, including one telling U.S. companies to take their manufacturing business elsewhere.
"We are just all learning of this at the same time, but the best I can tell, the American president can’t order U.S. companies how they’re going to do their sales and where they’re going to have their supply chains," Wallace lectured. "We have a free-market capitalist system."
‘They sense weakness’: Former senator says the world is ‘smirking’ as Trump flails away at latest China tariffs
Former Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT) appeared on CNN Friday to discuss how President Donald Trump has completely mishandled his long-running trade war with China.
While talking about trade with CNN's Jim Sciutto, Baucus said that China timed its new announcements of tariffs against $75 billion worth of American goods specifically to humiliate the president.
"They sense weakness," explained Baucus, who has also previously served as an American ambassador to China. "And I think that they see a weakness in the United States today. Trump has been weakened because of the weakened American economy and they're retaliating against the tariffs that Trump imposed after there was a truce there would be no tariffs."
