On CNN Thursday, speaking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, former Trump Homeland Security chief of staff Miles Taylor weighed in on the Biden endorsement from Vice President Mike Pence’s national security aide Olivia Troye.
“I’ll tell you this, this is an absolute bombshell,” said Taylor, himself a supporter of Biden. “Olivia Troye was the lead staff member on the COVID-19 task force at the white house. Her testimonial is the clearest evidence yet that the president botched the response and cared more about his re-election effort than he did the lives of Americans … no matter what the White House is saying, they always thought she was a top-tier staffer, that’s why they kept her there for two years. This is truly damning for the White House.”
“You think we’re going to be hearing from more Trump officials who, like you and Olivia, are going to be coming out and saying they can’t support President Trump for re-election?” asked Blitzer.
“You will, Wolf,” said Taylor. “Today we launched something called Republican Political Alliance for Integrity and Reform. The acronym is RePAIR. It’s focused on repairing the Republican Party post-Trump and repairing the country from the damage he’s done. I’m proud to announce today this is the largest group of ex-Trump officials that have come out against the president. In addition to Olivia joining RePAIR, we had Josh Venable join us. He was Betsy DeVos’ chief of staff at the Department of Education. I’m hoping you’ll hear from them and other advisers in RePAIR in the very near future about what we need to fix from the Donald Trump presidency and how we get back on track.”
Trump supporter stumbles when CNN asks him to describe the president’s health care plan
A supporter of President Donald Trump had difficulty this week when CNN's Alisyn Camerota asked him to describe President Donald Trump's elusive health care plan.
In a roundtable discussion of voters, a Trump supporter named Jimmy insisted that the president would take care of people who have preexisting conditions to make sure they can't be denied health insurance coverage.
However, Camerota noted that the president has still not released a health care plan, despite having pledged to do so for months now.
"But where is the plan?" she asked him.
"I haven't seen a plan, either," he acknowledged. "I'd say it would be pretty hard to go back on that promise when he said it so often."
‘They are on a different planet’: CNN panel shocked by Jared Kushner’s delusional COVID predictions

Former Donald Trump staffer says conservative media ‘brainwashed’ her into hating Democrats
On CNN Wednesday, Jessica Denson, the former coordinator of the Trump 2016 campaign's Hispanic outreach who starred in a recent ad for Joe Biden, opened up about how she was taken in by the Trump campaign — and why he must be defeated.
"My motive to go and help that campaign and be of service to the American people was sabotaged, and I've seen my experience repeated in the experience of one public servant after another over the past four years," said Denson, who spearheaded a lawsuit to free former Trump campaign officials from nondisclosure agreements. "I have seen that this campaign continues to go out brandishing a Bible and an American flag and claiming that they have anything to do with freedom, but I've lived first-hand that they have nothing to do with freedom. They have worked very much against free speech and democracy."
