President Donald Trump is Acquitted on Both Impeachment Articles

The U.S. Senate has acquitted president Donald John Trump on both impeachment charges today.

The U.S. Senate has acquitted president Donald John Trump on both impeachment charges today.

As expected, the Republican Senators voted as a block with every Senator but one voting to acquit on both charges.

The only GOP defector was traitor Mitt Romney (Utah) who voted to remove Trump from office on only one of the charges (Article One: Abuse of Power).

Per USA Today:

The Republican-led Senate voted to acquit Trump on two articles of impeachment – abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, was the only senator to cross party lines by voting to convict for abuse of power. Conviction was always unlikely in the GOP-led Senate, where Republicans hold a 53-47 majority because it required the support of at least two-thirds of the Senate or 67 senators.

The only surprising thing is that all the Democrat Senators stood firm with the far left, anti-Trumpers — even West Virginia Sen. Joe Mansion who seemed to be signaling that he would vote to acquit.

However, it is likely that once the Democrats all fully understood that there would be no substantive Republican defections, the more moderate Democrat senators felt safe enough to vote with the party line knowing that they would not be able to remove Trump, anyway.

Republicans, though celebrated the vote as a vote of “not guilty.”

Republican House Minority Leader took a jab at Nancy Pelosi on two levels with his celebratory tweet:

Both the ripping of the paper and the “acquitted for life” phrase were jabs at Pelosi who infamously just ripped up her printed copy of the president’s State of the Union speech last night and several weeks ago told reporters that Trump was “impeached for life.”

Going forward Trump will be able to say he was found innocent of the charges because he was not removed, but Democrats will counter saying that he was still impeached and will use that to try and make him illegitimate.

It won’t work. trump looks to be cruising to re-election in November despite the media’s and the Democrat’s best efforts.

U.S. was the Most Prepared Nation in the World to Face Coronavirus Pandemic

A new study by the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security finds that the U.S.A. was the best prepared country to meet the coronavirus pandemic.

A new study by the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security finds that the U.S.A. was the best prepared country to meet the coronavirus pandemic.

The study stands in direct opposition to the left-wing media and the Democrat’s claim that Donald Trump has left the country vulnerable to the virus.

Per Fox News:

The Global Health Security Index was was “developed with guidance from an international panel of experts from 13 countries, with research by the Economist Intelligence Unit” from 2018 to 2019, The Washington Post reported last year. “More than 100 researchers spent a year collecting and validating publicly available data.”

At the same time, the paper noted that the U.S. score was still not perfect, and that “factors driving down the U.S. score include the risks of social unrest and terrorism, and low public confidence in government.”

Biden recently began exclaiming that Trump has failed because he didn’t “put anyone in charge” of the pandemic response at the National Security Council.

Some in the media echoed Biden’s accusation and added that Rear Adm. R. Timothy Ziemer was ousted as senior director, and no replacement was ever made. However, even Factchek.org noted that the accusation has no teeth.

Fox added:

But, FactCheck.org has determined that the matter amounted to a reorganization, and that “some team members [of the NSC pandemic office] were shifted to other groups, and others took over some of [the top official’s] duties.”

There are also fake news claims that Trump “dismantled” the office in the NSC that handles things like a pandemic.

But that is also a false charge.

According to a former White House official who was actually there when the budget cuts were made, the facts show that Trump did not eliminate the office.

Trump On American MSM Siding With China: “It Is Fake News, It’s More Than Fake News, It’s Corrupt News”

President Trump criticized the American MSM for siding with China on Thursday at the White House.

“It is fake news. It’s more than fake news. It’s corrupt news,” he said. “They write stories without calling anybody.”

Trump denied media reports of “chaos” in the White House.

“I have no chaos. I am the one telling people to be calm,” Trump said. “We have unbelievable professionals.”

The president cited recent “fake phony” stories from the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post critical of the White House’s handling of fighting the virus.

“The press is very dishonest,” Trump said in response to a question from OAN correspondent Chanel Rion about the media, and added, “They are siding with China. They are doing things they should not be doing. They’re siding with many others.”

American establishment media outlets have criticized the president for using the term “Chinese flu,” echoing similar criticisms from Chinese state media.

“If we had an honest media in this country, our country would be an even greater place,” Trump concluded.

President Trump, Don’t worry about the Fake News Media because We the People know the truth and will stand by you always! Please pray for our president’s health, strength and that he gets some peace so that he may rest awhile. Same for VP Pence, their families too.

Watch Trump Defend Labeling Coronavirus The ‘Chinese Virus’

Published

on

President Donald Trump defended himself today from allegations of racism and xenophobia that were leveled in response to his calling the Wuhan coronavirus the “Chinese virus,” telling reporters that “it comes from China” and that “it’s not racist at all” to use the label.

He used the term “Chinese virus” in a tweet Wednesday morning and was asked about why he used the phrase by ABC reporter Cecilia Vega, who referenced “dozens of incidents of bias against Chinese Americans” since the outbreak.

“Because it comes from China,” Trump stated, adding that “it’s not racist at all, no, not at all.”

“It comes from China, that’s why. It comes from China. I want to be accurate,” Trump said. “I have great love for all of the people from our country, but as you know, China tried to say at one point — maybe they stopped now — that it was caused by American soldiers. That can’t happen, it’s not going to happen, not as long as I’m president.”

Trump Closes Border With Canada For ‘Non-Essential’ Traffic

Published

on

President Trump said the United States and Canada had agreed to close their border to non-essential travel as the two countries seek to blunt the spread of the coronavirus.

“We will be, by mutual consent, temporarily closing our Northern Border with Canada to non-essential traffic. Trade will not be affected. Details to follow!”

Daily Caller:

President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that the U.S. would temporarily close its northern border with Canada over coronavirus fears.

Trump tweeted that the move, approved by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, would be temporary and only impact “non-essential traffic.”

“Trade will not be affected,” he clarified.

The move comes after two Canadian provinces declared states of emergency over a growing number of coronavirus cases. Trudeau’s wife, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, tested positive for coronavirus just days prior. Trudeau announced Sunday that Canada would close its borders to all non-residents, with the exception of the U.S. More

Trump: Limit Fast Food Service To Takeout, Delivery, Drive-Thru

Published

on

President Donald Trump says that fast-food companies have agreed to keep their drive-thru and pickup options up and running.

“They were great. We discussed the important role that drive-thru, pickup, and delivery service can play in the weeks ahead. So that’s happening, and they have been fantastic. They have been absolutely fantastic, and they’ve been doing it already, but they’re keeping it open.”

Breitbart:

President Donald Trump spoke on the phone with fast food restaurant executives on Tuesday, asking them to limit their food service to drive-thru, pick up and delivery only.

The White House hosted the call with Trump and top executives of Domino’s Pizza, Chick-fil-A, Subway, McDonald’s, Papa Johns, and Wendy’s executives from Bloomin’ Brands, the parent company of Outback, Carrabba’s, Bonefish Grill, and Yum! Brands, the parent company of KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell.

The White House said Trump thanked them for helping serve the public and urged them to do their part to reduce the spread of the virus.

“All of the executives committed their restaurants to this critical guideline and assured the President they fully intend to continue feeding their communities through these other innovative avenues,” White House press secretary Judd Deere said in a statement. More

This is a great idea and that way they can keep their businesses going and people can get in their cars and go get out without getting sick or making others sick.

President Wants To Send Checks To Households Immediately

Published

on

President Trump wants the government to send checks to Americans in the next two weeks in an effort to curb the economic cost of the coronavirus outbreak, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said today.

“We’re looking at sending checks to Americans immediately,” Mnuchin said, adding, “Americans need cash now and the president wants to get cash now.”

Breitbart:

President Donald Trump said at the White House Tuesday he wanted the federal government to send direct payments to Americans suffering economically from the coronavirus as part of a larger rescue package.

“We’re going big,” Trump said, adding, “We want to go big, go solid.” The proposal was detailed by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Tuesday during a press briefing at the White House.

Mnuchin said that Americans could expect an individual stimulus within two weeks as he continued to negotiate with Congress.

He added that wealthy Americans would not get direct payments as they did not need it.

“I think it’s clear, we don’t need to send people who make millions of dollars a year checks, OK?” Mnuchin said to reporters. Trump agreed. “Obviously some people shouldn’t be getting checks for $1,000.

Mnuchin said that some of the reported funding numbers of $850 billion for a rescue were probably more expensive than the final bill would be, but that details would be released later in the day.

“This is stuff that needs to be done now, the president has instructed to me that this is no fault to American workers,” he said.

Trump said there were four different ways to get funding directly to Americans, and said that although he supported a payroll tax cut, he was looking at a better way to get funding to Americans faster. More

To those who have been genuinely caused harm by this WuFlu pandemic, some assistance is not out of order. However, there are a lot of opportunists and people who will be taking advantage of it that should not benefit from it. Our kids and grandkids are going to have to pay for it.

Trump’s Approval Rating Up Again Despite Media Smearing Him Over Coronavirus Mania

Donald Trump’s approval ratings rating is up despite the media’s best efforts to destroy him over the coronavirus.

Published

on

With its fake news reports on the Coronavirus, the media has found its newest weapon to destroy Donald Trump, but it appears that his approval rating is up despite the media’s best efforts (or worst efforts, if you will).

On Thursday, Trump’s approval rating ticked up to 49 percent, according to Rasmussen.

The poll also found that 50 percent disapproved. So, Trump is at nearly 50/50 despite the media’s efforts to destroy him.

To put this into perspective, rolling into his re-election year, Obama had an approval of only 47 percent at the same time in his presidency as Trump is now.

For even more perspective, we need to see just how unfairly the media treats Trump, too.

Rasmussen also reported earlier this week that Barack Obama had a 95% positive media. Trump has a 95% negative media.

It is incredible how resilient Trump is in the face of all this media hate.
