Trump’s 2020 Kickoff Celebration of Exaggerations and Lies

It’s a surprise to nobody that Incumbent President Donald Trump is running for reelection in the 2020 presidential election. Surrounded by a large pack of his rabid and loyal base in a giant Florida stadium, he declared to the world that he was far from being done in the White House. Spewing rhetoric that he’s been pushing since his first day in office, he played the crowd perfectly. This was Trump’s big party for him

Mueller Just Kicked the Impeachment Nest

When the original summary about the election by the special counsel came out in March 2019, it was up to William Bar, the US Attorney General, to summarize and send out the message to the American people about what was in it.

On Apr. 2, Trump claimed that he will close the border no matter what happens to the economy—it seems at this point he does not care. The president is determined to deal with the issue that’s been his biggest promise in his administration since it started, a solution to the so-called border problem. He’s pushed and pushed to get his supporters an acceptable solution and for much of his administration, it seems he has been

The Mueller Report Is Ammunition For Trump’s Rhetoric

The claim that the Trump campaign was colluding with Russians in the 2016 election has been haunting Trump like a phantom for the last two years.
