Vacationing Trump complains about China while officers are being shot in Philadelphia

Published

on

President Donald Trump is on vacation again at another of his golf courses. Not far away from Bedminster, New Jersey, residents in a north Philadelphia neighborhood are sheltering in place as police are in their second hour of another shooting.

“Good things were stated on the call with China the other day. They are eating the Tariffs with the devaluation of their currency and ‘pouring’ money into their system,” Trump tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “The American consumer is fine with or without the September date, but much good will come from the short deferral to December. It actually helps China more than us, but will be reciprocated. Millions of jobs are being lost in China to other non-Tariffed countries. Thousands of companies are leaving. Of course China wants to make a deal. Let them work humanely with Hong Kong first!”

The attack on the officers come less than two weeks after mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. Less than a week before those shootings was another horrifying mass shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in northern California.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has refused to call members back from their vacations to deal with the mass shootings with meaningful reform.

"You ask it in such an unfair way," complained Trump. "I wish we had a fair media in this country, and we really don't."

Trump says governors are ‘very happy’ with the job he’s doing — even though they’re begging him for more supplies

Published

on

At the latest coronavirus task force press briefing on Monday, President Donald Trump boasted that "every one" of the state governors in America are "very happy" with the job he is doing to help them combat coronavirus.

His claim is at odds with numerous governors who have complained that the federal government is not doing enough to coordinate the delivery of medical equipment and forcing them into bidding wars with other states.

Trump even tried to add later in the speech that Gov. J. B. Pritzker (D-IL) was "a happy man" even though "he may not be happy when he talks to the press."
