House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has handed out talking points describing the GOP agenda for the upcoming election, since President Donald Trump has been unwilling to chart a course himself.
Some lawmakers “were scared” when Trump was unable to detail his second-term strategy when asked in a recent interview, so several Republicans asked McCarthy to produce an agenda for their own re-election campaigns, reported Axios.
“Messaging is challenging, in the midst of a pandemic,” said Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC). “People were asking for this. Members want focus and structure. We as Republicans especially need it in order to be effective if we’re given the keys of power again.”
McCarthy’s talking points focus on three R’s for Republicans — “Renew the American Dream,” “Restore our Way of Life” and “Rebuild the Greatest Economy Ever” — and hits Democrats on three D’s — “Defund our police, border patrol and military,” “Dismantle our social, economic and political institutions,” and “Destroy our small businesses and entrepreneurs with crushing taxes and regulation.”
House Republicans hope Trump will also campaign on that messaging.
”I think the president’s campaign should adopt it, which we saw Donald Trump do in 2016, following the convention,” said Rep. James French Hill (R-AR).

Adam Schiff: ‘A president cannot pardon himself’ and the ‘constitution is not a suicide pact’
Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) appeared on CNN Wednesday to discuss the pardon of Michael Flynn by President Donald J. Trump and the question arose regarding whether or not the president could, in fact, pardon himself.
"The Justice Department has taken the position that a president cannot pardon himself," Schiff said. "It would ultimately be up to [the U.S. Supreme Court] to decide. The Constitution is not a suicide pact."
Flynn was originally charged with admitting that he had misled investigators about details of his conversations with the Russian ambassador during Trump’s presidential transition.
True confessions of a ‘Trump supporter’ who just got donor-shamed by the president
As one of the patriots receiving the Con-Artist-In-Chief’s daily blizzard of fundraising emails, I am able to offer some rare insight into what it’s like to let Dear Leader down. It isn’t pretty.
Now, you probably are wondering what I’m doing receiving emails from the dark side, and I don’t blame you. I don’t recall asking to make this dubious list, but here I am, in a fine position to serve as a treasonous spy.
Sadly, I was just given the bad news that my lifetime Trump-giving record of $0 has not gone unnoticed or unforgiven.
“Friend,” the email from “Trump Donor Record” begins. “Did you see the President’s email? “
