Trump is ‘down in the dumps’ — and may have to cancel Jacksonville rally after city’s face mask mandate: report

Published

on

A new report from Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman describes President Donald Trump as “down in the dumps” and anxious about being remembered as a one-term “loser.”

One Republican described as “close to the White House” tells Sherman that the president’s heart does not appear to be in the 2020 campaign, especially after his big comeback rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma spectacularly blew up in his face when he spoke before an arena that wasn’t even filled to half capacity.

And Sherman’s sources say that the president may not even get to make up for the Tulsa debacle with his planned Republican National Convention rally in Jacksonville, Florida later in the summer, especially after the city mandated that residents wear face masks when using indoor public spaces.

“According to a Republican working on the convention, the campaign is now preparing to cancel the event so that Trump doesn’t suffer another Tulsa–like humiliation,” writes Sherman.

Additionally, Sherman’s sources claim that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has told other senators that they should feel free to break with Trump if he doesn’t turn around his campaign by Labor Day.

Lawmakers such as Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), who thought they would be cruising to reelection, are “pissed” that they now have competitive races on their hands thanks to Trump’s sliding poll numbers.

Of course, Trump does not need an executive order to accomplish such a goal, as it is already federal law in the Affordable Care Act, that was passed a decade ago by congressional Democrats and then-President Barack Obama.

Trump campaign advisors soon took to Twitter to praise Trump's promise as "huge news."

"Huge news just now - [Trump] announces upcoming EO to cover pre-existing conditions. Big, big, big news," campaign senior advisor Jason Miller tweeted.

Top US counter intelligence official formally announces Russia working to attack Biden, helping Trump win re-election

Published

on

The top counterintelligence official in the United States government has just released an official statement saying the Intelligence Community is actively working to help President Donald Trump get re-elected.

"We assess that Russia is using a range of measures to primarily denigrate former Vice President Biden and what it sees as an anti-Russia 'establishment.' This is consistent with Moscow’s public criticism of him when he was Vice President for his role in the Obama Administration’s policies on Ukraine and its support for the anti-Putin opposition inside Russia," states National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) Director William Evanina.
