President Donald Trump on Tuesday sat down with ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos for a town hall meeting in Philadelphia.

Trump was asked about downplaying the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Well, I didn’t downplay it it,” Trump falsely claimed.

“I actually, in many aways, up-played it in terms of action,” Trump argued.

“Did you not admit it to yourself?” first-time voter Ajani Powell asked.

“What I did, was with China, I put a ban on, with Europe, I put a ban on and we would’ve lost thousands of more people had I not put the ban on. So that was called action, not with the mouth, but in actual fact, we did a very good job when we put that ban on,” Trump claimed. “Whether you call it talent or luck, it was very important.”

Stephanopoulos noted the bans had holes.

Trump then went on to tell the host he has no regrets.

WATCH: Supercut of proof of Donald Trump’s long-held racism

Published

on

Supporters of President Donald J. Trump regularly defend the divisive president claiming he isn’t a racist — but he has a long history showing the contrary. On MSNBC's The Beat with Ari Melber Wednesday, the host shared a supercut of instances where President Donald J. Trump's racism was on full display.

"This year's a fundamental reckoning," Melber began. He later added, "So every voter must answer, 'Are you for or against this?" Melber asked before playing a clip that showed a pre-presidential Trump who sought to disprove then-Democratic candidate Barack Obama's American heritage.

Former Supreme Court justice’s son helped Trump get Deutsche Bank loans: report

Published

on

During Justice Anthony Kennedy's 31 years on the U.S. Supreme Court, liberals and progressives had a love/hate relationship with the Reagan appointee — praising him for his rulings on gay rights and abortion rights while slamming his economic rulings as beneficial to unchecked corporate power. And those who viewed Kennedy as being too quick to side with big business are likely to have similar views on his son, Justin Kennedy, who according to the New York Times, has been very close to Trumpworld and helped Donald Trump secure almost $700 million in loans for a real estate project in Chicago.
