While President Trump seems to be on point 👍 with issues like immigration and the upcoming midterm elections, he has spent two weeks in denial about the Khashoggi case. 👀
🐦 Ever since his vicious and totally false statements about Admiral Ron Jackson, the highly respected White House Doctor for Obama, Bush & me, Senator John Tester looks to be in big trouble in the Great State of Montana! He behaved worse than the Democrat Mob did with Justice K!
Trump's renewed criticism of Tester came on the eve of a campaign rally in Missoula, Mont., for Tester's Senate opponent, Matt Rosendale (R). After Jackson was nominated to head the VA in April, Tester's office released allegations that the White House doctor fostered a hostile work environment, improperly dispensed prescription drugs and drank on the job. The claims were based on interviews with colleagues of Jackson's. Jackson and the White House both denied the allegations, but the doctor ultimately withdrew his nomination.
🐦 I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S.........In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught - and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!..The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!
The president's comments come 19 days before the midterm elections, and he is rallying his base over his central campaign issue of hardening U.S. immigration policy. The president has said repeatedly that he thinks immigration should be a top issue on the campaign trail, as Republicans are fighting hard for control of the House and Senate. Earlier this week, the Trump administration said 66 children, including one under 5 years old, remain in custody and separated from their families as part of its immigration policy. Parents of 50 of the children have already been deported, according to the administration's numbers.
🐦 Congressman DaveBratVA7th is one of the hardest working, and smartest, people in Washington. He is strong on the Border, Crime, the Military, our Vets and the 2nd Amendment. He is a powerful vote for MAGA and loves the Great State of Virginia. Dave has my Total Endorsement!
Brat is locked in a close race against Democrat Abigail Spanberger, a former CIA officer who has cast herself as a moderate. Public polling in the state's 7th Congressional District has been sparse, but a Monmouth University poll released late last month gave Spanberger a 5-point lead over Brat.
🐦 Secretary of State Mike Pompeo returned last night from Saudi Arabia and Turkey. I met with him this morning wherein the Saudi situation was discussed in great detail, including his meeting with...the Crown Prince. He is waiting for the results of the investigations being done by the Saudis and Turkey, and just gave a news conference to that effect.
It’s been more than two weeks since Khashoggi, a prominent Saudi dissident who obtained U.S. residency last year over fears for his safety, vanished after visiting the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul. Turkish officials claim there are gruesome audio and video recordings, described in Turkish media in recent days, that reveal Khashoggi was beheaded and dismembered within minutes of entering the compound. Pompeo traveled to the Saudi and Turkish capitals to seek answers in a case that has piled pressure on the Trump administration over its apparent skepticism of the Turkish claims. Trump said Wednesday in the Oval Office that the United States had asked Ankara for copies of any audio or video evidence of Khashoggi’s killing, "if it exists." Trump added: "I’m not sure yet that it exists, probably does, possibly does. I’ll have a full report on that (when Pompeo returns). "That’s going to be the first question I ask."
