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.

Conservative: Democrats are wasting time attacking each other when they should be warning the public about Trump

Published

On Thursday, former Jeb Bush adviser and Republican National Committee spokesman Tim Miller, a Never Trump conservative, penned a dire warning in The Bulwark, castigating Democrats for not responding to the threat of President Donald Trump with the force or unity that they should.

"Last year the apartment complex that was under construction behind my condo was torched to the ground in the dead of night. Flames engulfed the block and little balls of fire began raining down into our courtyard as if the End Times had cometh," wrote Miller. "When the firemen came to evacuate us, we did not spend a few hours searching their twitter archives for problematic tweets before accepting their assistance. We didn’t make sure that we brought every single item from the house with us. After-all, this was an actual emergency. So we grabbed the essentials as quickly as possible, ensured everyone was safe, and followed the instructions of the professionals who were trying to keep our home from burning to the ground."

Ex-GOP lawmaker Sean Duffy cornered by CNN’s Camerota: Should Trump keep using foreign help to get re-elected

Published

on

On Thursday morning, CNN "New Day" host Alisyn Camerota confronted former GOP lawmaker Sean Duffy (R-WI) -- now a CNN contributor himself -- over whether he would approve of Donald Trump using his position of power to press foreign governments for help with his re-election after the ex-Congressman said he saw nothing wrong with the president's Ukraine phonecall.

Appearing on a panel with former GOP Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA), Duffy tried to dismiss the pending impeachment of the president by using polls showing a decline in support for the expected Senate trial -- only to have host Camerota shoot them down saying they are an outlier by a GOP-related firm that CNN wouldn't even repeat.
