It was the stock market collapse in 2008 that cost Republicans control of both branches of the government that year.
A market meltdown. Surging recession fears. And a sudden spotlight on America’s health care system. Goldman Sachs is warning Wall Street that the coronavirus could cost President Donald Trump the election.
The potential political fallout from the coronavirus adds yet more uncertainty for investors trying to assess the impact of the fast-moving epidemic.
“If the coronavirus epidemic materially affects US economic growth it may increase the likelihood of Democratic victory in the 2020 election,” Goldman Sachs analysts led by Ben Snider wrote in a report published Wednesday night.
Five major American newspapers — The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Los Angeles Times — have largely ignored President Donald Trump’s firing of “the government’s entire pandemic response chain of command” in 2018 in their print coverage of his administration’s response to the novel coronavirus outbreak over the past two weeks.
Evangelist Franklin Graham is currently scheduled to speak throughout the UK this summer, but thanks to statements he’s made disparaging LGBTQ people, there’s one place he definitely won’t be going: ACC Liverpool has canceled the engagement due to his history of statements, which ACC representatives said in a statement are “incompatible with our values.”
“Over the past few days we have been made aware of a number of statements which we consider to be incompatible with our values,” the statement read. “In light of this, we can no longer reconcile the balance between freedom of speech and the divisive impact this event is having in our city. We have informed the organizers of the event that the booking will no longer be fulfilled.”
This is a bombshell. Trump claims he doesn’t know Parnas. This video proves otherwise. Listen to Trump and his sycophantic staff at their evil best. At about the 42nd minute into the tape you will hear the ‘president’ call for Ambassador Yovanovitch’s removal:
President Trump said he’s happy with the way the impeachment trial is going thus far because his administration has not released “materials” that would hurt his cause.
“When we released that conversation all hell broke out with the Democrats,” Trump said. “Because they said, ‘Wait a minute, this is much different than [what Adam Schiff] told us.’ ”
The president continued, “So, we’re doing very well. I got to watch [the impeachment trial] enough. I thought our team did a very good job. But honestly, we have all the material. They don’t have the material.”
Acting deputy Homeland Security Secretary Ken Cuccinelli was reportedly forced to leave an event on Thanksgiving eve after former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley blasted him for carrying out the Trump administration’s immigration policies.
It’s no longer a secret. Trump is a working on behalf of Putin and Russia:
More evidence that President Trump is acting as Putin’s poodle comes with news late this week that Russia is now taking over a key U.S. airfield in the Kobani region of Syria. Russian forces raised their flag on Nov. 14 over the Serin base south of the city of Kobani which, as one report accurately put it, “has symbolic value since it was the first city w[h]ere the Islamic State was defeated in January 2015.”
Fox News host Bret Baier said Friday that President Trump’s tweet criticizing former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch was “adding an article of impeachment real-time.”
“That was a turning point in this hearing so far,” Baier said on Twitter of Trump’s tweet.
“She was already a sympathetic witness & the President’s tweet ripping her allowed Schiff to point it out real time characterizing it as witness tampering or intimidation -adding an article of impeachment real-time,” he added.
There is no question Trump is experiencing mental decline. That makes it imperative he is removed from office before he orders a completely insane act. There is no evidence that his bootlicker aides would say no:
As someone who has spent a lot of time around President Trump, the anonymous administration official behind the upcoming book A Warning feels it is necessary to alert the public to Trump’s behavior behind the scenes.
Several excerpts of the book were released on Thursday night, including one section focusing on Trump’s mental acuity. The author writes that while they are “not qualified” to diagnose the president, “I can tell you that normal people who spend any time with Donald Trump are uncomfortable by what they witness. He stumbles, slurs, gets confused, is easily irritated, and has trouble synthesizing information, not occasionally but with regularity. Those who claim otherwise are lying to themselves or to the country.”
