‘We can’t trust him’: Ohio swing voters rip Trump’s debate performance in focus group

Published

on

A group of self-described swing voters from Ohio were unhappy with President Donald Trump’s performance in the first 2020 presidential debate.

Axios reports that the focus group revealed that the president’s widely panned debate performance even annoyed some people who still plan on voting for him anyway.

“Neither of them conducted themselves as gentleman, or president and presidential candidate,” said one voter who’s nonetheless backing Trump. “I was very disappointed in both.”

Another Trump supporter similarly told the focus group that they were “irritated that he kept talking over everybody and that he wouldn’t answer the questions.”

Other swing voters, however, said that the first debate pushed them more firmly to back Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

“I have a little more faith in Biden than I do in Trump, honestly, because Trump has shown us evidently we can’t trust him,” explained one Biden backer.

“In 2016, the way [Trump] spoke was different. ,” explained another Biden voter. “He was more focused on what needed to be done. Now, it’s all about conspiracy theories and that is really concerning to me.”

During an MSNBC discussion of the curious choices Donald Trump's campaign is making about his rally locations, "Morning Joe" regular John Heilemann stated the president "is in a panic" and can't think straight --even more than normal -- because he knows he's losing badly.

With only seven days ago, the president has been holding two to three rallies per day, which led "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough to ask Heileman if there is a strategy behind the choices the president is making.

"I think the president's in a state of panic," the MSNBC regular asserted. "I think that's the only real answer and I think you see things like -- you guys pointed to in the last hour when you talk about Trump being up in New Hampshire is good example of that kind of panic."

Our military is up to something in South America

With withering poll numbers and a flip of control of the Senate ever more likely, Donald Trump may be preparing to end Radical Republican rule with one last big bang—a war in South America.

For over a year now, our country has been quietly building forces near Venezuela, a nation with a leftist regime that this country has long sought to upend. Just last month, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took a whirlwind three-day tour of Venezuela’s neighboring countries:

Trump tries to shame media out of covering the pandemic with frantic all-caps tweet

Published

With one week to go until the 2020 presidential election, President Donald Trump does not want to talk about the novel coronavirus pandemic.

In a frantic all-caps tweet posted Tuesday morning, the president once again ranted about all the attention the media is giving to a pandemic that has killed more than 220,000 Americans in just eight months.

"ALL THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA WANTS TO TALK ABOUT IS COVID, COVID, COVID," the president wrote. "ON NOVEMBER 4th, YOU WON’T BE HEARING SO MUCH ABOUT IT ANYMORE. WE ARE ROUNDING THE TURN!!!"

Despite the president's claims, there is no indication that America is "rounding the corner" on the pandemic.
