There is so much happening in a 24 hour window that it requires me to run another news roundup.
Earlier today PDJT delivered remarks and held and impromptu press conference from the airport in Morristown, NJ, prior to departing for Pennsylvania.
The President: I just see where we’ve collected close to $59 billion in tariffs so far. And, in my opinion, the consumer has not paid for it because of the devaluation by China. They devalued and they pumped a lot of money into their system. So, it’s really been an amazing — it’s been an amazing period of time.
Q Would you consider moving the tariffs, even? Delaying them even further, past December 15?
THE PRESIDENT: No, we’re doing this for Christmas season, just in case some of the tariffs would have an impact on U.S. customers, which, so far, they’ve had virtually none. The only impact has been that we’ve collected almost $60 billion from China — compliments of China. But just in case they might have an impact on people, what we’ve done is we’ve delayed it so that they won’t be relevant for the Christmas shopping season.
Q But is it appropriate for you to be spreading that kind of conspiracy theory? I presume you don’t know that that’s true.
THE PRESIDENT: No, basically what we’re saying is we want an investigation. I want a full investigation, and that’s what I absolutely am demanding. That’s what our Attorney General — our great Attorney General — is doing. He’s doing a full investigation.
Our President also traveled to Pittsburgh, PA, today to tour the Shell Cracker Plant and deliver remarks on “America’s Energy Dominance and Manufacturing Revival.”
In the video below, start it at 23:00 and it concludes at 1:29:30.
More and more of the WALL is being built and there is absolutely nothing that the MSM, Democrats, Leftists, CoC, Koch Brothers etc. can do to stop it.
The Economic Train continues to laugh at the so called experts that say that our country is headed for a recession. The exact opposite is true!
From the article linked above:
The NFIB Small Business Optimism Index rose 1.4 points to beat expectations at 104.7, as rising uncertainly has been reversed and replaced with resilience. Expectations for business conditions, real sales, and expansion all made solid gains.
|Prior||Consensus Forecast||Forecast Range||Actual|
|Small Business Optimism Survey||103.3||103.0||101.5 to 105.5||104.7|
“While many are talking about a slowing economy and possible signs of a recession, the 3rd largest economy in the world continues to defy expectations, generating output, creating value, and expanding the economy,” said NFIB President and CEO Juanita D. Duggan.
The Judicial Armada will continue to grow. Our President will have the chance to replace an 11th Circuit Appellate Judge, Gerald Tjoflat, who has served on the federal bench since 1970. He has decided to take senior status (effective on confirmation of his successor).
Nixon appointed him to District Court in 1970, and Ford elevated him to Appellate Court in 1975.
Money talks and BS walks!
From the article linked above:
The Republican Party has long been panned by its detractors as the party of big money and big donors — but donation patterns have changed measurably under President Trump, a Fox News analysis of campaign finance data shows.
Sixty-one percent of money raised directly by the Trump campaign this election cycle came from small donors (donations under $200), according to Federal Election Commission figures.
Campaign finance analysts say the data indicates grassroots enthusiasm for Trump’s populist message.
“Democrats have traditionally been the party that has benefited the most from cultivating a small donor base,” Alex Baumgart, individual contributions researcher at the Center for Responsive Politics, which runs the donation database OpenSecrets.com, told Fox News.
“It’s pretty clear from the numbers that Trump has done a lot to change that dynamic — the populist edge he’s brought to campaigning is clearly something that is resonating with small donors on the right.”
The Democrats are scared out of their minds about the case the Supreme Court is going to hear in the fall.
From the article linked above:
Several high-profile Senate Democrats warned the Supreme Court in pointed terms this week that it could face a fundamental restructuring if justices do not take steps to “heal” the court in the near future.
The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., referenced rulings by the court’s conservative majority in claiming it is suffering from some sort of affliction which must be remedied.
The Democratic senators’ brief was filed in the case of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. City of New York, which dealt with legal limitations on where gun owners could transport their licensed, locked, and unloaded firearms. They are urging the court to stay out of the case brought by the NRA-backed group, claiming that because the city recently changed the law to ease restrictions, the push to the Supreme Court is part of an “industrial-strength influence campaign” to get the conservative majority to rule in favor of gun owners.
If the court still decides to hear the case, a ruling against New York City could prevent other cities and states from passing similar gun control laws.
I absolutely agree with Brandon. I am no longer concerned that our President would allow any Red Flag Law from passing given the fact he mocked Fredo about it.
We are two days away from our President’s next rally!
Our President absolutely understands how to destroy the Democrats running to go up against him in 2020. I showed you the data yesterday. Elizabeth Warren took the bait. Hook, line and sinker!
They are always on the wrong side of an issue!
Excellent thread by unseen1 about the tariffs and how our President now controls the federal reserve and the markets.
I ABSOLUTELY love all the WINNING!
