President Donald Trump sat down with ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos for a town hall event titled, “The President and the People” on Tuesday.

Shortly before the broadcast time, ABC News released a video teasing the event.

As Trump was rambling about how preexisting conditions would be part of a forthcoming GOP health care plan, he falsely stated that Democrats would not protect preexisting conditions, at which point Stephanopoulos stepped in.

“Mr. President, I have to stop you there,” Stephanopoulos said.

The moderator pointed out that Joe Biden is against Medicare for All.

“But much more importantly, Obamacare guaranteed that people with preexisting conditions could buy insurance,” he noted, as the camera showed the woman who asked the question nodding in agreement.

“You fought to repeal Obamacare,” Stephanopoulos noted. “You are arguing before the Supreme Court right now to strike it down.”

Trump then claimed that he has a secret health care plan, but did not offer details.

“I have it all ready,” he claimed. “I have it all ready and it’s a much better plan for you and it’s a much better plan.”

“What is it?” Stephanopoulos asked.

CNN presents damning list of all the times Trump has refused to accept election results

Published

President Donald Trump triggered outrage at his Wednesday press briefing for refusing to commit to a peaceful transition of power.

But his attitude is nothing new, wrote Kevin Liptak for CNN, who listed all the times in the last few months Trump has expressed similar sentiments.

On July 19, for instance, Trump told Fox News Sunday, "I'm not going to just say 'yes'" when asked if he'll accept the election results. On July 30, he tweeted that mail ballots are "INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT" and suggested "Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote." On August 17 at a rally, he suggested staying in office beyond two terms, saying "we'll go for another four years because they spied on my campaign. We should get a redo of four years." Three days later, at another rally, he said of Democrats, "they're trying to steal the election, and everybody knows that. Because the only way they're going to win is by a rigged election."

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) re-election campaign is facing scrutiny from the Federal Election Commission (FEC) and he is now being required to answer questions regarding suspected accounting errors.

The letter and a 60-page report, written by FEC campaign analyst Susan Worthington to McConnell’s Senate Committee, were sent to McConnell’s campaign treasurer, Larry J. Steinberg on Monday. The committee pointed out “Apparent Excessive, Prohibited, and Impermissible Contributions” regarding donations recorded in McConnell’s July quarterly report that suggests multiple contributions may have exceeded the legal limits.

Fox News analyst slams Trump for visit to Ginsburg’s casket: ‘Maybe it’s to get the boos’

Published

on

Fox News analyst Chris Stirewalt was bewildered on Thursday after President Donald Trump showed up at the Supreme Court to pay his respects to former Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

As Trump appeared next to Ginsburg's casket, the crowd could be heard jeering the president.

"I don't know why he went," a confused Stirewalt said. "He didn't go to John Lewis' memoriam. He wasn't there for that stuff. And for good reason. Right? These people don't want him there. Ruth Bader Ginsburg's folks don't want him there. It's going to be an ugly scene."

"I guess, he's the president. He can go where ever he wants," the Fox News contributor added. "And he has security so that he can go do it. But you just wonder what the political calculation was here in going to a place where you know you will be received poorly, going to a place where you know the folks there don't want you to be."
