Published

President Donald Trump’s allies have been circulating an opposition research file on Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, for getting some things wrong in the past when talking about the novel coronavirus.

However, the president has gotten vastly more wrong about the pandemic — and CNN on Monday showed the receipts.

CNN’s Alisyn Camerota showed viewers a supercut video of Trump’s statements about the disease that she said show he’s been “wrong about every aspect of the pandemic.”

The video starts off with Trump’s false prediction that heat would kill the virus, meaning it would simply go away by the spring.

“By April, you know, in theory, when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away,” he said.

Next, CNN showed Trump falsely claiming that the virus was under control.

“The coronavirus, which is, you know, very well under control in our country, we have very few people with it,” he said during a campaign rally.

“We’re going down, not up,” he said in another clip. “We’re going very substantially down, not up. And again, when you have 15 people, and the 15, within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that’s a pretty good job we’ve done.”

Trump campaign dispatches Pence to shore up Mormon support — after harsh criticism from Mitt Romney and Jeff Flake: report

Published

on

The president's 2020 election campaign continues to play defense in Arizona, a once reliably-Republican state.

"President Donald Trump's reelection campaign is looking to shore up support among a specific population of Arizonans: members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints," the Arizona Republica reported Monday. "Vice President Mike Pence is coming to Mesa Tuesday to help launch a 'Latter-day Saints for Trump' coalition in what appears to be a late-in-the-game play to win over LDS voters, who tend to vote Republican but hold values that clash with some of the president's."

Here’s how Trump created a ‘significant threat’ to his re-election by failing on coronavirus stimulus

Published

Politico on Monday reported on how Donald Trump may have imperiled his 2020 presidential campaign by failing to reach a deal with Congress on the next round of stimulus.

"After a spring and summer bolstered by cash infusions from the federal government of more than $3 trillion, the U.S. economy may have to sink or swim this fall with a relative trickle of support — presenting a significant threat to President Donald Trump’s standing as he heads into a compressed reelection campaign already trailing in the polls," Politico's Ben White reported.
