Featured Image -- 1043

Donald Trump really wants to make American great again — but first, he’s trying to make us afraid.

During his acceptance speech Thursday night, the Republican nominee for president (not “presumptive” anymore — as in, we’re actually doing this) cast himself as the savior of a nation beset by crime, undeterred foreign threats and spineless leadership. And then he achieved it not using the trademark unsubtlety and braggadocio that carried him to the convention, but alternatively using language blunted just adequate to make his frightening vision acceptable to voters.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg: ‘I regret making’ Donald Trump responses

Ruth

Commentary: She is a smart lady, she is just saying what we all having saying about Trump and his third grade level speeches. Her knowledge is beyond Trumps knowledge by light years. She could not have gotten where she is on senseless rhetoric.  Trump mentions “I” several times. Everything seems to be about him when answering questions. There is no substance and people are falling his promises that he cannot keep, but he is suing one of his former workers. No where in media, was there silence for the shooter in Dallas. It is scary people would rather believe a lie and the truth. You check it out… see for yourself.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said Thursday she regrets remarks she made earlier this week to CNN as well as other news outlets criticizing presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
“On reflection, my recent remarks for a press inquiries were ill-advised but I regret making them,” Ginsburg said in a statement. “Judges should avoid commenting throughout the candidate for public office. Someday I am going to more circumspect.”

It had been so near to the message that Republicans say they want from Donald Trump: a tweet describing Hillary Clinton as “crooked” and the “most corrupt candidate ever,” on the morning that the likely Democratic presidential nominee met aided by the FBI.

Nevertheless the image that Trump decided to illustrate his point, which portrayed a red Star of David shape slapped onto a bed of $100 bills, had origins into the online white-supremacist movement. For a minimum of the fifth time, Trump’s Twitter account had shared a meme from the racist “alt-right” and offered no the reason why.

Featured Image -- 1043
Republicans are making the effort to embrace Donald Trump, but he is not so it is easy. Just a couple weeks just before the party tactics to coronate Trump as its 2016 standard-bearer along at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, the presumptive nominee is staying up the infighting that has troubled the GOP’s establishment for months.

During the past 48 hours, Trump has abandoned decades of conservative orthodoxy on trade, launched into a battle using the GOP’s traditional business lobby allies and campaign financiers — like the Chamber of Commerce — and slammed his former Republican presidential rivals who have not endorsed him, saying their political careers should be over.

“They broke their word also in my view; they must never be permitted to run for public office again because exactly what did was disgraceful,” Trump said in Bangor, Maine, Wednesday, observing figures like Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who signed a pledge to strengthen the GOP nominee but have still to endorse him Kasich, due to his part, on Wednesday, released a note on his campaign fundraising list highlighting a poll showing him faring better on the list of the general election than Trump.

Is the GOP Breaking Up Over Trump?

trump-hands-head

The choice of a quantity of well-known Republicans to leave the party as a result of Donald Trump’s ascension to your the top of the ticket could be seen as an endeavor to help simply rebuild the party, some experts say.

Longtime conservative and political columnist George Will said he recently changed his voter registration from Republican to unaffiliated.

Former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson that is Republican and served under President George W. Bush wrote in an op-ed in the Washington Post why a Trump presidency is harmful to the country, declaring which he is supposed to be voting for Hillary Clinton this fall.

And Brent Scowcroft, who was the national security adviser to Republican Presidents Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush, put out a statement supporting Clinton and her “wisdom and experience.” He would not mention Trump by name.

The “Never Trump” movement gathered steam throughout the primaries, and you can still find elected officials who say they support the idea. The recent announcements by party elders could also represent a rebuke of Trump’s campaign.
