Fri, Dec. 8, 2017: Trump rallies in Pensacola, FL, urges votes for Roy Moore

President Donald Trump urged Alabama voters to “get out and vote for Roy Moore” in Tuesday’s Senate special election.

“Do it. Do it,” he said Friday night at a campaign-style rally in Pensacola, Florida — 25 miles from the Alabama state line.

“We cannot afford — this country, the future of this country — cannot afford to lose a seat in the very, very close United States Senate. We can’t afford it, folks. We can’t,” Trump said. “We can’t afford to have a liberal Democrat who is completely controlled by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. We can’t do it.” Continue reading “Fri, Dec. 8, 2017: Trump rallies in Pensacola, FL, urges votes for Roy Moore”

President Trump, stung by days of criticism that he sowed racial division in the United States after deadly clashes in Charlottesville, Va., accused the news media on Tuesday of misrepresenting what he insisted was his prompt, unequivocal condemnation of bigotry and hatred.

Thur, Aug 3, 2017: Trump holds MAGA rally in Huntington, WV

President Donald Trump gave a rallying cry at a campaign event Thursday night in Huntington, West Virginia, as the state’s Democratic governor, Jim Justice, announecd he was joining the GOP.

Democrats “can continue their obsession with the Russian hoax or they can serve the interests of the American people,” Trump said after Justice’s announcement. “Try winning at the voting booth.”

In the small city along the banks of the Ohio River, whose 49,000 residents have been hard-hit by the opioid crisis and job losses, Trump blasted the investigations into possible ties between Russia and his 2016 campaign, “fake story that is demeaning to all of us and most of all demeaning to our country and demeaning to our Constitution.”

Earlier in that day, news broke that special counsel Robert Mueller had convened a grand jury as part of the federal probe into Russia.
