On CNN Wednesday, CNN analyst Dana Bash slammed President Donald Trump’s new plan to give the GOP re-nomination speech at the White House.

“I mean, I don’t even know where to start,” said Bash. “There is a law called the Hatch Act, where it says that you’re not supposed to politic from government grounds. The president is exempt from that, so it may be legal grounds for him to stand on, relatively firmly, to do this at the White House. There are questions about the aides that are working for him to do it. But let’s just talk about whether it’s appropriate.”

“I know a lot of people are going to laugh saying, appropriate, that ship sailed a long time ago. But this is different,” added Bash. “This is the president of the United States accepting a political party’s nomination for re-election, and to use the backdrop of the White House, the power of the incumbency takes the kind of meshing of the two to a whole other level, and that might have been the trial balloon to see whether it floats or bombs. And we’ll see what happens with that.”

President Donald Trump and his allies seem to realize that they've dug themselves a hole in attacking former Vice President Joe Biden as mentally unfit. With expectations so low, a Biden win in the first debates are almost assured, even with a Fox News host.

In a discussion Tuesday, Trump began to pivot away from his non-stop advertising attacking Biden's cognitive abilities and instead claim Biden is a "professional" who knows what he's doing.

"Maybe that would work if the president himself had not been saying this about Biden on repeat for the entirety of the campaign," said CNN host Brianna Keilar.

America under Trump is now an ‘object of pity’ throughout the world: Ex-White House official

Published

Former Trump National Security Council staffer Fiona Hill told CNN's Jim Sciutto on Tuesday that the United States under President Donald Trump evokes "pity" from people around the world instead of respect.

In talking about Russia's efforts to sow division in the United States ahead of the 2020 presidential election, Hill told Sciutto that America's foreign adversaries don't have to do much to create fear and mistrust in America right now.

"So I have to say very bluntly to everybody who's watching and listening to this, we are increasingly an object of pity, including by our allies," she said. "They're shocked by how we eat ourselves alive with our divisions. We are creating this -- it is not the Russians or the Chinese!"
