Most troubling of all, perhaps, was a sentiment the expert said a member of Kushner’s team expressed: that because the virus had hit blue states hardest, a national plan was unnecessary and would not make sense politically. “The political folks believed that because it was going to be relegated to Democratic states, that they could blame those governors, and that would be an effective political strategy,” said the expert.
That logic may have swayed Kushner. “It was very clear that Jared was ultimately the decision maker as to what [plan] was going to come out,” the expert said.
Some Republicans said the polls may be accurate, especially when it comes to Trump’s sagging support among suburban voters, but that there’s still time for Trump to recover in large part because he still has the upper hand on the economy. Trump is leading or polling even with Biden on the issue.
Which is weird, 'cos Joe was VP of the admin that actually did it in '09.
'Upper hand on the economy'
Yeah, so a substantial number of job losses is due to the pandemic and the stimulus bill did provide some nice benefits (extra $600 a week in unemployment benefits). However, that is now ended and it's unlikely many of the newly unemployed will get their jobs back before November. I guess the thinking here is Trump would be better leading the economic recovery....
@greg0205 there you go. Trump is so consistently a liar that these folks felt confident enough to invest in making this ad. Imo it was a very safe betTrump’s Broken Promises On Healthcare Called Out In Stinging New Ad
“Trump has no plan. Never has. Never will,” the spot from progressive PAC MeidasTouch says.
A new attack ad highlights President Donald Trump’s repeated and long-running failure to deliver on his promises to shake up the nation’s healthcare system.
“We’re signing a healthcare plan within two weeks, a full and complete healthcare plan,” Trump vowed in a July 19 interview with Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday.” The 60-second spot was released by progressive super PAC MeidasTouch on Sunday ― two weeks after that interview when no such plan had arrived. Trump spent much of Sunday at Trump National Golf Club in Virginia, where he was seen golfing for the second day in a row.
Since before he took office, Trump has pledged to imminently produce a comprehensive healthcare plan to replace the Affordable Care Act. Yet, with three months to go before the election, more than 150,000 people dead and millions more infected as the coronavirus surges around the U.S., no overhaul has been delivered.
The White House did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for comment.
“In response to a question by Chris Wallace why Trump hasn’t had a healthcare plan in 3.5 years, Trump’s response was he was going to have a health care plan ready to sign in two weeks. Of course, this has not been the case,” MeidasTouch said in a statement released with the video.
“Trump has been lying about everything since he ran for office, but his lies on health care are particularly and peculiarly virulent and dastardly given that is causing people to become and stay stick and lose their lives — on a mass scale.”
The TrumpHasNoPlan hashtag paired alongside the video was among Twitter’s top trending topics in the U.S. on Sunday night.
The group is fundraising for a nationwide Fox News TV ad buy for the spot, according to the statement. It’s not clear if or when it will air.
MeidasTouch was founded by Ben Meiselas and his brothers, Brett and Jordan. Meiselas is a civil rights attorney who represented former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in his settlement with the NFL.
Trump has no healthcare plan. Never has. Never will. Exactly two weeks ago, compulsive liar Donald Trump did what compulsive liars do... lie compulsively during his interview with Chris Wallace.
In response to a question by Chris Wallace why Trump hasn’t had a healthcare plan in 3.5 years, Trump’s response was he was going to have a healthcare plan ready to sign in two weeks. Of course, this has not been the case.
The safest bets you can make is that if Donnie tells a "sir" story, it never happened; and that when he says "two weeks" he's lying... or, maybe bullish*tting... or, maybe both.
He prefers them to remain bimbos. I’mUp until recently she's been pandering to the Orange Dotard, and was called out on that over the weekend.
Trump criticizes Birx for the first time after she issues coronavirus warnings
The President blasts the coordinator of the coronavirus task force after she warned the pandemic is 'extraordinarily widespread' in the US
President Donald Trump criticized Dr. Deborah Birx in a Monday tweet after she warned the pandemic is "extraordinarily widespread" in the US.
While Trump and other top White House officials have publicly attacked Dr. Anthony Fauci, the tweet marked the first time Birx, the coordinator of the White House coronavirus task force, publicly drew Trump's ire.
The dust-up comes as the country continues to be ravaged by coronavirus, with more than 150,000 US citizens dead and more than 4 million cases. Trump has consistently lied and misled mostly in attempts to downplay concerns about the virus as he presses for schools and businesses to reopen.
"So Crazy Nancy Pelosi said horrible things about Dr. Deborah Birx, going after her because she was too positive on the very good job we are doing on combatting the China Virus, including Vaccines & Therapeutics. In order to counter Nancy, Deborah took the bait & hit us. Pathetic!" Trump wrote.
Birx sounded the alarms during an appearance on CNN Sunday, telling CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union" that the pandemic has reached a new phase.
