Trump Reveals His 6 Promises To the American People If Reelected

Trump Reveals His 6 Promises To the American People If Reelected

President Donald Trump laid out six initiatives he plans to pursue if he wins reelection on November 3.

Trump brought up a list during an appearance at the Whirlpool Corporation in Ohio, going over the promises he kept from his 2016 campaign as he laid out new promises for his second term.

Trump’s first on the list was to beat the CV-19 virus, saying his administration was using all its resources to develop therapies, a vaccine, and medical equipment to limit the spread of the virus.

The president’s second promise was he would bring the economy back to the levels it was pre CV-19 and stronger, touting that employment rates are already on the rise.

Third, he promised to use the gains in America’s medical manufacturing capacity to make the United States into the world’s top producer of medical products such as ventilators and pharmaceuticals.

Fourth, Trump promised to rein in US supply chains in other industries too, making certain for national security reasons that American companies don’t have to rely on other nations.  The globalists before the Trump era screwed over our manufacturing base, which is what created the Forgotten Man syndrome where millions of men and women lost their jobs so that DC politicians could get rich and stay in power, politicians like Joe Biden and John Kerry who sold us out to foreign governments who padded their children’s bank accounts in the process.

His fifth promise Trump talked about was to make use of every tool at his disposal, including the use of tariffs, to help bring American manufacturing jobs back to the United States.   He took the occasion to announce new tariffs on Canadian aluminum as well.

The sixth promise Trump made to the American people was to always put American workers first.  He has already done this, which is why Trump supporters will never abandon him.

The president made the speech just hours after he signed a “Buy American” executive order aimed toward onshoring America’s production chains. White House advisor Peter Navarro, who was at the signing, praised the plan and explained why it took so long to sign after announcing the plan in the spring.

“Good things take time, and this is a good thing for America,” he said. “I’ve been a part of roughly 15 executive orders. This is one of the most comprehensive and effective executive orders that I’ve seen. It’s going to get the mission done.”

MSNBC Producer Quits Her Job, Calls Far Left Network A ‘Cancer’ In Scathing Letter

MSNBC Producer Quits Her Job, Calls Far Left Network A ‘Cancer’ In Scathing Letter

A former producer for the liberal MSNBC network penned a scathing letter of resignation calling the cable news company a “cancer.”

Ariana Pekary shared the letter on her personal website explaining why she “simply couldn’t stay there anymore.”

“July 24th was my last day at MSNBC. I don’t know what I’m going to do next exactly but I simply couldn’t stay there anymore,” she said.

“My colleagues are very smart people with good intentions. The problem is the job itself. It forces skilled journalists to make bad decisions on a daily basis,” the producer said.

“You may not watch MSNBC but just know that this problem still affects you, too. All the commercial networks function the same – and no doubt that content seeps into your social media feed, one way or the other.

“It’s possible that I’m more sensitive to the editorial process due to my background in public radio, where no decision I ever witnessed was predicated on how a topic or guest would ‘rate.’

“The longer I was at MSNBC, the more I saw such choices — it’s practically baked in to the editorial process – and those decisions affect news content every day.

“Likewise, it’s taboo to discuss how the ratings scheme distorts content, or it’s simply taken for granted, because everyone in the commercial broadcast news industry is doing the exact same thing.

But behind closed doors, industry leaders will admit the damage that’s being done.

“’We are a cancer and there is no cure,’ a successful and insightful TV veteran said to me. ‘But if you could find a cure, it would change the world,’” she said.

She said she was an  “integral member” of MSNBC’s “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell.”

And, she said, that the coverage that the network is giving to protests after the George Floyd death and coronavirus is risking lives.

“The model blocks diversity of thought and content because the networks have incentive to amplify fringe voices and events, at the expense of others… all because it pumps up the ratings,” she said.

“This cancer risks human lives, even in the middle of a pandemic. The primary focus quickly became what Donald Trump was doing (poorly) to address the crisis, rather than the science itself.

“As new details have become available about antibodies, a vaccine, or how COVID actually spreads, producers still want to focus on politics.

“Important facts or studies get buried,” she said. “This cancer risks our democracy, even in the middle of a presidential election.

“Any discussion about the election usually focuses on Donald Trump, not Joe Biden, a repeat offense from 2016 (Trump smothers out all other coverage). Also important is to ensure citizens can vote by mail this year, but I’ve watched that topic get ignored or ‘killed’ numerous times,” she said.

She said that some journalists choose stories based on merit and not commercialism but that is rare.

“I’ve even heard producers deny their role as journalists. A very capable senior producer once said: ‘Our viewers don’t really consider us the news. They come to us for comfort,'” she said.

“Now maybe we can’t really change the inherently broken structure of broadcast news, but I know for certain that it won’t change unless we actually face it, in public, and at least try to change it,” she said.

Will This Be The First Election With No Debates? The Twitter Debate Is On……

Will This Be The First Election With No Debates? The Twitter Debate Is On……

Opinion| Any honest pundit, politician, citizen journalist, or person with a TV or the internet, will tell you that there is something wrong with Joe Biden.  We may disagree with what we think it is exactly that is wrong with Joe.  However, I think we can all agree he has some serious issues.

Some will say Biden is an ‘old white male’ and part of the ‘white supremacist’ power structure and standing in the way of progress. This set of people may also point to Biden’s infamous ‘Biden Crime Bill’ which some have pointed to as the reason our federal prisons are so full of minorities.

Others will state the obvious, Joe is a compulsive liar.  Everything that comes out of his mouth seems to be either untrue, or plagiarized from someone else. This is not a recent phenomenon either, Biden has been called out for this by the MSM … back in the day, where they still had a shred of journalists integrity:

A few moments later … Biden caught in Law School plagiarism cheating scandal, which also exposed the lie that Biden graduated in the top 1/2 of his class:

Others of us point out the more obvious.  We do not think that Biden is all there, mentally.

I had a Grandmother who had dementia.  I hate to say it, but the behavior that she exhibited was very similar to what I see in Joe Biden.  Obviously Joe is not at the end of his cognitive decline, keep in mind I am not a doctor, but based off my experience with my Grandmother, I think Joe has been degrading for a number of years now.

All one has to do it look at that clip above of Biden lying through his teeth, while bragging about things he never accomplished in Law School, and then compare it to him speaking now to realize that he is not functioning at the same level:

Now that we have established a few of the reasons why, if I were on team Biden, the last thing on God’s green earth I would want would be to put Biden on stage with Donald Trump for a 60 or 90 minute debate.  It would be like feeding a mouse to a lion.

In fact, some of the people on ‘team Biden,’ you may know them as ‘the media’ have begun to place it in the public consciousness that Biden may not be doing debates this year.   Obviously if this does end up being the case, the public can not know this was Biden’s people’s idea, it would show them just how weak Biden’s own team knows him to be.

Enter, Brian Stelter.  Since I have nothing nice to say about Brian, I’ll leave it to you to draw you own conclusions about the self appointed hall monitor of the internet and social media.

Brian’s job is to lie.  It’s what he does.  He creates false narratives. The most recent of which, Fox News explains, is that it is people like us, the ‘right wing media’ who do not want Biden to debate Trump, when this is demonstrably false.  If it were up to me, Biden and Trump should be locked in a room together for the next 90 days until the election, with a livestream the entire time available online.

Trump would eat Biden’s DHA and Omega 3s,6s and 9s.  Fox News explains:

‘ CNN media pundit Brian Stelter raised eyebrows On Monday night after he said that “mostly right-wing media” is behind the growing push for Joe Biden not to debate President Trump — despite high-profile calls from The New York Times and even CNN personalities for the former vice president to skip the events.

Earlier in the day, the Times sparked mockery across social media for an op-ed arguing that presidential debates should be “scrapped,” with critics suggesting that it’s the latest effort by the media to prevent Biden from debating Trump. Donald Trump Jr. even chimed in, tweeting, “OMG they’re really going for it. There’s absolutely nothing the left will not do to protect Joe Biden and cover-up for all of his obvious flaws,” to accompany a link to the op-ed.

Townhall.com political editor and Fox News contributor Guy Benson quipped about the puzzling media trend, writing, “This ‘Biden shouldn’t debate’ boomlet is just a media tempest, right? Right?”

Stelter, once dubbed the media’s “hall monitor,” appeared to reject the premise of Benson’s comment.

“It is mostly a right-wing media tempest, fueled by hour after hour of Fox commentary (not reporting), far removed from campaign reality …,” the CNN pundit told Benson.’

Benson, who must have been licking his chops, served up a screenshot of the proof that Stelter was gaslighting the world, yet again.

‘It seems as though this notion wasn’t invented out of whole cloth by conservatives. It’s an idea that has been floated by left-leaning figures/outlets …,” Benson tweeted.

Knowing he was busted, Brian decided to try another angle:  “I’m well aware. but it’s a mistake to spend lots of precious time yakking about what leftie columnists are suggesting in this case. obviously biden will debate. why imply otherwise to viewers, hour after hour?”

Benson remained civil, however others on Twitter were not so gentile with Stelter as he rested on the ropes, bleeding and barely conscious”

“This is a brazen lie that’s easily traceable. Brian Stelter’s head doesn’t not exist in reality,” Stephen Miller responded.

“When I think about my most Reliable Sources as a reporter, I definitely think about the sources who are shameless partisans who are utterly unwilling to admit when they’re wrong and are brazen & embarrassing as they double down when proven to be laughably & demonstrably off base,” Jerry Dunleavy of the Washington Examiner  tweeted.

David Martosko piled on: ‘Featured in The New York Times, Newsweek and… your network, CNN. We can all spot the messaging coordination. There’s nothing unusual about this, but denying it just makes you look complicit.’

Logan Hall echoed the same sentiments I expressed above: ‘stelter doesn’t want his preferred candidate to debate trump, for obvious reasons.’

Other users picked the low hanging fruit and smashed Brian with it.  It’s nice to see that some people are paying attention to what is really going on and not falling for the media BS anymore.

I think it is safe to say that Brian got his ass handed to him.  Despite the demonstrably misleading, at the very least, claim, CNN’s media ‘newsletter’ ran with Steltzer’s gaslight and blamed those evil right wingers for the idea.  Laughable man, HA! to quote ‘The Jesus’ from The Big Lebowski.

Fox concluded by quoting Biden’s deputy manager and communications director Kate Bedingfield: ‘America’s Newsroom” on Monday that her candidate is “very much looking forward to debating Donald Trump.”‘

However, some of us still question whether Biden will be the nominee at all.  That’s cray cray you may say, and I know it sounds out there, but I can not get the words of the DNC communication director out of my head:

Did she just suggest Biden is done?

Tragic News For Magic’s Jonathan Isaac, Who Stood For Our National Anthem While Others Knelt, Tears ACL

Tragic News For Magic’s Jonathan Isaac, Who Stood For Our National Anthem While Others Knelt, Tears ACL

Jonathan Isaac was the first professional Basketball player to stand for the anthem since the NBA returned.

Opinion|  You can not make this stuff up, not even if you tried.  The first played to have the balls to stand for the national anthem, the Orlando Magic’s Jonathan Isaac, suffered a tragic injury last night in a game against the Sacramento Kings.

Prior to this injury, Isaac explained his reason for standing, while every other player on the court knelt for the national anthem.  His answer came after being asked the question ‘Do you think black lives matter.’  Just in case the color is inverted on your screen or you can not tell, this question was asked of Isaac … a black man, she literary asked a black man if he thought black lives matter:

‘It’s my thought that kneeling, or wearing a Black Lives Matter t-shirt, don’t go hand in hand with supporting black lives, and so um, I felt like, just me personally, what it is that I believe is that, honestly, that, I do believe that black lives matter, but … but I just don’t like that it was a decision that I had to make, and I didn’t feel like putting that shirt on and kneeling, went hand in hand with ‘supporting black lives,’ or that it made me support Black Lives Matter.

For myself, my life has been supported though the Gospel of Jesus Christ, that everyone is made in the image of God and that we all share God’s glory.  Each and everyone of each, each and every day do things that we shouldn’t do, we say things we shouldn’t say, we hate or dislike people we shouldn’t hate or dislike.  Sometimes it gets to a point where we point fingers about who’s evil is worse, and sometimes it comes out as someone whose evil is most visible.

So um, I felt like I just wanted to take a stand on, I feel like we all make mistakes, but I think that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is that there is Grace for us, and that Jesus came and died for out sins and that, if we all will come to an understanding with that, and understand that God wants to have a relationship with us, that we can get past skin color, we can get past, all the things in our world that seem jacked up. 

I think when you look around racism isn’t the only thing that plagues our society, the plagues our nation that plagues our society, that plagues our world.  And I feel like coming together on that, on that decision that we want to get past, not only racism, but everything that plagues our society, I feel like the answer to it is the Gospel. ‘

Tragically the courageous ballplayer was injured during a game against the Sacramento Kings on Sunday night.  He was later diagnosed with a torn ACL in his left knee.

Fox News explained:

‘Isaac suffered the tear in his left knee – the same knee in which he suffered a devastating injury to in January. That one was supposed to be a season-ending injury, however, the coronavirus pandemic paused the NBA and it gave him more time to recover for the restarted season.

He was taken off the floor in a wheelchair in the fourth quarter.

Portland Has Fallen As Over 150 Shots Fired In The Democrat ‘Controlled’ City Over Night

Portland Has Fallen As Over 150 Shots Fired In The Democrat ‘Controlled’ City Over Night

Opinion| The peaceful protesters are at it again in Portland.  Just in case you wanted a glimpse of what the people who think Trump is evil look like, you need to look no further than Portland, Oregon.

For over 2 months now, a fight has been raging against radical left wing ‘protesters’ and a federal building and any law enforcement officer trying to protect the building and/or restore order to the city.

Four days ago it was reported that ‘Trump administration in talks with Oregon governor about pulling agents in Portland’ by KATU 2, among others.

The local network reported:

‘The Trump administration has started talks with the Oregon governor’s office and indicated that it would begin to draw down the presence of federal agents sent to quell two months of chaotic protests in Portland if the state stepped up its own enforcement, a senior White House official said Tuesday.

The official stressed to The Associated Press that the talks with the office of Democratic Gov. Kate Brown are in the early stages and there is no agreement. The official was not authorized to publicly discuss private conversations and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The nightly protests often spiral into violence as demonstrators target the U.S. courthouse with rocks, fireworks and laser pointers and federal agents respond with tear gas, less-lethal ammunition and arrests.’

Well, last night was no exception, in fact, things seem to have gotten considerably worse as Fox News is reporting that:

‘More than 150 rounds were fired and one woman was shot in Portland on Friday night while protesters on Saturday – some of whom appeared to impersonate press – threw glass bottles and shined lasers at city police officers sent to quell the nighttime unrest witnessed for more than two months straight.

Saturday marked the third night of federal and state law enforcement cooperation in Portland, as the Department of Homeland Security continues to weigh plans to withdraw from the liberal Oregon city. It was the 64th straight day of violent demonstrations and rioting in Portland.

A shooting rang out about 11:08 p.m. Friday outside an apartment building near the 600 Block of NE 87th Avenue. The Portland Police Bureau said in an update Saturday that more than 150 rounds were fired and bullets struck at least eight occupied apartments and seven vehicles. One round struck a woman in the arm, and responding officers applied a tourniquet before she was transported to the hospital by ambulance with injuries that were not life-threatening.

“This is America and it’s a war zone with 150 shots in an apartment complex close to a Christian university. How can we explain that?” Aragon Marks, who lives at the building, told Fox 12 Oregon.’

Just in case you have not realized it, this is an insurrection and it is only going to get worse if President Trump wins and if Biden becomes President, look out because the people rioting each night may very well end up being Joe’s brown shirts …

Video: Unhinged Radical Leftists ‘Raid’ NYPD Commissioner’s Home In Middle Of The Night

Opinion| Mayor de Blasio not only should be ashamed of himself, in my opinion, but he also has blood on his hands and plenty of it.

Ever since the ‘Black Lives Matter’ gang has taken over the nation’s city’s, New York has seen a large spike in violent crime which seems to be directly correlated with Democrat/socialist Mayor de Blasio deciding virtue signal his ass off,  bowing to the out of control and the lawless mob would be a good look for him.

According to the www1.NYC.GOV:

Murder is up +23.1% (181 v. 147) for the first six months of 2020 when compared to the first six months of 2019.

-There were 205 citywide shooting incidents in June 2020, compared to 89 shooting incidents in June 2019, a 130.3% increase. Year-to-date, through June 30, there is a +46% spike in citywide shooting incidents (528 v. 362).

Burglary increased +118.2% (1,783 v. 817) in June and is up +46.3% (7,234 v. 4,943) year-to-date through June 30.

Sounds like things are going swimmingly for the city, which my friends who live there tell me is ‘going to ****’, and has ‘never been more dangerous.’  The people telling me this are in no way wimps either, nor are they all evil ‘white people.’  From what they are telling me, no one feels safe there, other than the people committing the crimes.

Things have gotten so bad that the President of a New York State Troopers Union wants to pull his officers from the City:

Fox News reported:

‘The president of a union representing New York State troopers said Friday that New York City’s restrictions on police officers are setting the men and women on the force up for failure.

“By raising the bar and almost making it impossible for my members to safely arrest, we’ve had enough. I want them out,” New York State Troopers PBA President Thomas Mungeer told “Fox & Friends.”

Can you blame them?  I would not want to work in an environment where you are asked to intervene with violent criminals with your hands tied behind your back, knowing that the Mayor is just dying to score political points by strangling you up for any perceived misstep you may make, would you?

Another Fox News article described the scene at the home of New York Police Department’s commissioner Shea in the middle of last night:

 ‘If the spike in shootings isn’t keeping NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea up at night, the protesters probably are.

A group of demonstrators shone lights and blared sirens at the top cop’s Manhattan home at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday, according to video posted to social media.’

Chris Gelardi posted to Twitter a video of the obnoxious antics:

“This is a raid, Commissioner Shea”

#AbolitionPark protesters, citing the NYPD’s 3:40 am razing of their City Hall encampment a week prior, give the police commissioner a 2:30 am wakeup call’

 

“If we don’t get no justice, then you don’t get no sleep,” the impossible to please  group of agitators, and radical leftist, screamed, while the sound of siren’s blared and super bright spot lights were pointed into the windows of the building.

The ‘peaceful protesters’ saw seven arrests, including one for … throwing a brick at a cop.  Sound like a great group of people, eh?

What raises their kid to think it is ok to throw a brick at anyone, what is this Home Alone 2 ‘Lost in NYC?’  At least in that movie Kevin was trying to defend himself from child predators.

I guess the other difference in the movie is that the criminals are the ones being hit with the bricks, in NYC the criminals are the one’s throwing them.

Anyway, the New York Post was told that the self-described ‘raid’ only lasted about 15 -20 mintues.

A 28-year-old college kid said that “They had a loudspeaker [and] they said, ‘Wake up wake up,”  “I thought there was a fire but they were just screaming for this building.”

There is a ‘fire’ alright, and it’s festering as I type this.  It’s going to engulf the entire nation if law and order is not restored soon.

I just pray the fire is extinguished before the men and women on the right decide that they have had enough and make up their minds that they are ‘not going to take it anymore,’  if that happens, things are going to get ugly … fast.

Radical Portland Mayor Does 180, Now Publicly Begging For Meeting With Trump’s DHS Seeking ‘Cease-Fire’

Radical Portland Mayor Does 180, Now Publicly Begging For Meeting With Trump’s DHS Seeking ‘Cease-Fire’

Lawrence David| Opinion| Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler is the new face of the Democrat Party by, in my view, posing as a de facto representative of his city’s Antifa movement.

Mayor Wheeler also serves as Portland’s police commissioner.  If you don’t see a problem with that arrangement, then read on.

We saw what happened when Manchurian President Barack Obama essentially controlled the FBI for his own purposes.  He turned it into a weapon against his political opponents.

Wheeler has done the same thing in his city and, as with Obama, ordinary citizens suffered when the rule of law was ignored.

Wheeler’s police did little to stop the madness while anarchists smashed store windows, committed physical assaults, looted local businesses, and attempted to burn buildings to the ground.

Here’s a July 16th tweet from Wheeler:

“A number of people Ra asked if I know DHS leadership is in town, and if I’m going to meet with them. We’re aware they’re here. We wish they weren’t. We haven’t been invited to meet with them, and if we were, we would decline.” 

Now that two months of anarchy has finally been answered by the arrival of federal officers to protect federal buildings from destruction, and many of the Democrat-aligned anarchists are being arrested,  Wheeler is begging for a meeting with Homeland Security chief Chad Wolf.

Wheeler realizes that too many of the agitators he counts on to give the appearance that this is a movement of some heft are arrested, the fringe ‘protestors’, those not committed to the nightly violence and with no interest in being tear-gassed or engaging the legal hassle, have begun abandoning the cause reducing the numbers significantly.

If enough soft protestors fail to show up there’ll be nowhere for the violent anarchists to hide.  Like other terrorists that hide in schools and hospitals, these radical leftist operatives need the same cover to keep from being arrested.

What does Wheeler do in response?  He wants to negotiate the removal of the federal presence so that the rioting anarchists can continue driving their Marxist agenda.

Ironically, Democrats are suddenly crying that the federal government has overstepped its authority… the same Democrats who have constantly sought to vest all power in a single federal ruling authority.

Wheeler should know that the Trump administration doesn’t negotiate with terrorists.

At Least Three Federal Officers May Be Have Been Blinded By ANTIFA After Portland Rioters Attacked Them With Lasers

At Least Three Federal Officers May Be Have Been Blinded By ANTIFA After Portland Rioters Attacked Them With Lasers

Opinion| I think that a case could be made against Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler for treason. If a general were to lay down arms and allow the enemy to capture his command without a fight, that is treason. (See Benedict Arnold) So, wouldn’t a mayor of a city who turns over his charge to BLM and antifa also be equally guilty?

The riots in Portland have gotten way out of hand and now at least three federal officers could be blind for life after rioters shone lasers into their eyes as the pelted the federal courthouse with mortars and high grade fireworks as well as the attempts they have made to trap the feds inside the building as they try to burn it down to the ground.

Wheeler has allowed the riots to continue for more than 55 days. But, at the end of the day Wheeler will insist that the federal government bail his city out of the mess they are currently experiencing.

Deputy Director of Federal Protective Service, Richard “Kriss” Cline, told reporters on Tuesday that 1,000 rioters tore the planks off the windows inside the federal courthouse and that they began to throw things at the officers.

Cline says that when officers came out to put out the fires, the rioters aimed laser pointers at them, blinding at least three of them, possibly for life. And still not one peep from the Democratic leaders who appear to showing their pleasure with the rioters by their unseemly silence or their praise of the so called “peaceful protesters.”

The Blaze reported:

Also during the news conference, Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary Chad Wolf took aim at the city of Portland for its apparent disinterest in quelling the violence.

“These individuals carried lasers, baseball bats, explosive fireworks, metal pipes, glass bottles, accelerants, and other weapons all targeting federal facilities and federal law enforcement,” Wolf said. “And yet the city of Portland takes little to no action.”

Federal officers have been active in Portland since earlier this month despite resistance from Democratic officials.

President Donald Trump Drops The Hammer, His Hand Was Forced To Make The Decision To Pull The Plug On The Anticipated Republican Convention

President Donald Trump Drops The Hammer, His Hand Was Forced To Make The Decision To Pull The Plug On The Anticipated Republican Convention

President Donald Trump has run out of options and had no choice left, as the coronavirus pandemic rages nationwide, than to cancel the Jacksonville portion of the Republican National Convention.

The president made the announcement on Thursday after saying for months that the Republican Party would have their convention, CNN reported.

The move is a striking turnaround for Trump, who moved the convention to Jacksonville after North Carolina’s governor raised public health concerns about having massive gatherings in Charlotte, as the GOP had long planned.

Pared-back events in Charlotte will still be held, Trump said.

Despite urges to ignore them, Trump was closely watching as several Republican lawmakers said they weren’t going to Jacksonville or were considering not going, a person familiar said.

Trump was wary of having sparse attendance at the convention. Just a month ago, the Trump campaign was playing up expectations for a massive crowd at the President’s first rally since the pandemic began, but those crowds in Tulsa, Oklahoma, were much smaller than expected.

Campaign manager Bill Stepien and Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel met with Trump recently, telling him it was still possible to go forward with the convention but that canceling was also still an option, according to a GOP source with knowledge of the process.

They presented the option to cancel as a chance for Trump to demonstrate leadership, and he was much more open to the idea than he had been in the past, the source said.

Trump said on Thursday he informed his team that his focus was on protecting the America

“I looked at my team and I said the timing for this event is not right. It’s just not right,” the president said. “To have a big convention, it’s not the right time.”

“There’s nothing more important in our country than keeping our people safe,” he said in a speech at the White House.

It is a sad, but necessary, change as the pandemic spikes in Florida and many Southern states and still continues to rage nationwide.

“When we chose it, it was not at all hot. It was free. And all of a sudden, it happened quickly,” he said of the spike in Florida.
