On Monday’s edition of CNN’s “The Situation Room,” chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta slammed President Donald Trump’s closing rhetoric in the 2020 campaign.
“I will tell you, covering this president over the last several days, this has got to be the ugliest closing message I have ever seen from a politician in my lifetime covering politics,” said Acosta. “The president out on the campaign trail today in Scranton, Pennsylvania saying, Governor Wolf of Pennsylvania, we have people watching you, don’t try to do anything foolish, we have eyes down. What kind of rhetoric is that coming from a president of the United States? Talking about how he could knock over Joe Biden over the weekend if he wanted to. And so on.”
“The question, I think,” added Acosta, “is whether or not the president can replicate the kind of success he had last time around. But he doesn’t sound like somebody who is going to close the gap. He doesn’t sound like somebody who is going to shock the world again. He sounds like somebody who is going to lose, and he is upset about it.”
Trump is trying to ‘monetize defeat’ by bilking fans for a personal ‘slush fund’: Ex-GOP lawmaker
Former Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA) on Monday said that President Donald Trump likely knows he lost the 2020 presidential election but is taking one more opportunity to bilk his supporters for cash before leaving on January 20th.
Appearing on CNN, Dent argued that the president is already angling for a new grift after leaving the White House, and he's getting an early start on it by asking fans to donate to his legal defense fund.
‘The president’s legal strategy is in tatters’ and the GOP knows Trump’s coup is failing: NYT reporter
President Donald Trump's attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election are getting crushed in courts -- and more members of his own party are finally saying publicly that it's time for the president to give up his long-shot bid to remain in power.
New York Times reporter Alex Burns told CNN on Monday many Republicans can see the writing on the wall but are still working up the courage to nudge the president out the door.
Lara Trump buried by CNN host for claiming Trump voters don’t ‘feel’ like he lost
Lara Trump appeared on Fox News to further the Trump campaign agenda that the 45th president of the United States, her father-in-law, won the election.
"There are about 74 million people out there who do not feel like the result of this election that has been presented is accurate," she told Fox News host Leland Vittert.
In a recap segment on CNN's Reliable Sources Sunday afternoon, chief media correspondent Brian Stelter responded, "Lara Trump is wrong, by the way, to say that every Trump voter feels that this thing was rigged." Speaking of feelings, he added, "Facts do not care about your feelings ... This conspiracy crap is just like Trump's anti-media enemy of the people smear. It's a slow-acting poison that is crippling the American [body of] politics."
