Trump's Biggest Whoppers

Before ...

I guess this is what you do when you plan on going to the Ukraine to collude with a foreign government to win the 2020 election.  You dye your hair black, have a facelift tuck around your eyes (see him without the glasses) and put a little botox in our face for good measure.  No one will ever recognize you now, Rudy.

And after.  This morning on Fox ...

Heather Long Retweeted Donald J. Trump

The level of factually wrong info from the president this morning is high.

1) Americans are paying tariffs, not the Chinese

2) Trump has now raised taxes on Americans by $62.5 billion

3) Pretty much every economist predicts tariffs will hurt the economy

This is a big yawn for the Chinese when they are not laughing their heads off at Trump.

S.C. Sen Lindsay Graham spoke in overwhelming support of Trump tariffs even though they will harm citizens of S.C. more than the Chinese.

Ironically, Sen. Tim Scott (R), junior S.C. senator spoke somewhat in opposition to them.  He pointed out to Trump (he says) that they will harm the auto industry in S.C. and the tens of thousands of workers.  The auto industry is pretty big in S.C. - BMW, Volvo, Mercedes-Benz (vans) and other related industries.  Clemson University even has a huge International Center for Automotive Research.

Of course, Scott does not run for re-election for 2 or 4 years whereas Lindsay has to face the very radical, extremist GOPers who vote in the GOP primary this time.

Bit of history here.  In the 1830's, S.C. and other Southern states threatened to secede because of the U.S. tariffs imposed by the Northerners in Congress.  The North was trying to develop an industrial base whereas the South imported almost all of it manufactured goods and depended upon the export of cotton to Europe for most income.

Case closed! The Mueller Report has cleared @DonaldJTrumpJr and the dems are now making this all about politics. Let’s move on and get to work on the real issues facing America.

Donald Trump Jr. was subpoenaed by a GOP-led Senate committee in the Russia probe

I just saw on a local political show last night that Tillis will  be challenged from the right

in the 2020 primary so he's going to keep as close to Donny as possible. Burr has said

that he will not run again in 2022, so if he keeps to that promise he doesn't really have

to worry about what Trump says about him.

House Judiciary chair Jerry Nadler and Reps. Ted Deutsch and Eric Swalwell introduced the "No President Is Above the Law Act"

that would "pause the statute of limitations for any federal offense committed by a sitting president"

-----------------------------------------------------

an act on Friday that would "pause the statute of limitations for any federal offense committed by a sitting president."

Between the lines: The "No President Is Above the Law Act" is likely an attempt to circumvent the Justice Department's ruling that states a sitting president cannot be indicted or criminally prosecuted.

The big picture: Special counsel Robert Mueller laid out extensive evidence of possible obstruction by Trump in volume 2 of his report, though he ultimately opted not to make a "traditional prosecutorial judgment" in part because of the OLC opinion....

AP fact check: Trump’s fog of misinformation on trade

 

President Donald Trump cast a fog of misinformation over the U.S. trade dispute with China, floating inaccurate numbers and skewed economic theories as big tariffs kicked in on Chinese goods.

At stake in the rupture is a trading relationship between the world’s two largest economies that employs nearly 1 million Americans, supplies affordable goods to U.S. households and, in the view of Trump and a bipartisan group of trade hard-liners, puts U.S. business at an unfair disadvantage.

Trump’s torrent of tweets on the subject Friday followed a rally infused with familiar falsehoods about his achievements (the economy, veterans’ health) and grievances (the Russia inquiry).

A look at his words over the past week:

Trump takes over Fourth of July celebration, changing its location and inserting himself into the program
The president’s starring role has the potential to turn what has long been a nonpartisan celebration of the nation’s founding into another version of a Trump campaign rally.

I think that China felt they were being beaten so badly in the recent negotiation that they may as well wait around for the next election, 2020, to see if they could get lucky & have a Democrat win - in which case they would continue to rip-off the USA for $500 Billion a year. The only problem is that they know I am going to win (best economy & employment numbers in U.S. history, & much more), and the deal will become far worse for them if it has to be negotiated in my second term. Would be wise for them to act now, but love collecting BIG TARIFFS!
