Joe Biden: Ex-VP warns of possible foreign interference in November elections
Jul 21 2020
"I hope you show the scenario because this is what fake news is all about", Trumpsaid, to which Wallace countered, "I don't think I'm fake news". "Rarely does anybody do what you just did", Trump says in the interview. I'm not going to say no.
Using another metaphor, If you have ever presided over a pre-kindergarten game of hide-and-seek, there are usually a few who are first-timers at the game.
The remarks came as new polling results showed support for Mr Biden increasing as doubts about Mr Trump's handling of the pandemic grow amid a resurgence of infections in many states. The results of last week's survey found the former vice president leading Trump by 15 percentage points at 55 to 40. "And the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House", the campaign said.
Meanwhile, Trump's favourable ratings are in the tank, the Politico news report said.
Sections of the Republican party have remained opposed to Donald Trump ever since he joined the race to be the party's nominee for the 2016 Presidential elections.
During an interview with Fox News, Trump said, "Let Biden sit through an interview like this, he will be on the ground crying for mommy".
If the Wallace interview is any indication, it's Trump who struggles to meet that remarkably low bar.
Among the issues discussed was the push for wholesale changes in policing. Russian Federation was allegedly manipulating the elections back in 2016, which brought Donald Trump to win.
"He's shot, he's mentally shot", Trump said.
Defending the Confederate flag, for example, he said that for many people, it's not a racist symbol and that he's not offended by it, and then he deflected. Sure, a case can be made that having Republicans (plural, maybe!) step into the danger zone of the DNC and declare for Biden is a big symbolic thing that might win over some middle-of-the-road voters, but it's still kind of icky to give someone we know as a homophobe, and an opponent of women's rights over their bodies, a place at the table. "You can't just cancel all", Trump said. "You going to name it after the Rev. Al Sharpton?"
Liability protections and a payroll tax cut in the next coronavirus bill: Trump insisted that the next coronavirus relief bill should protect businesses from coronavirus-related lawsuits and said he wants a payroll tax cut. Biden's campaign says it'll begin resuming normal travel and campaign activities when health officials and state and local authorities say it's safe.
The job interview - through which Trump also experienced an argument about whether pinpointing an elephant was robust evidence of psychological steadiness - was specially combative when it touched on Covid-19, which has contaminated 3.7 million and killed far more than 140,000 folks in the US.
Cases are rising because people are infecting each other more than they were when most everyone was hunkered down.
