Congressional Leaders Warn of Democratic Check on Trump Presidency

06 November, 2018, 01:54 | Author: Sally Reid
  • Trump's trade policies have scrambled partisan lines for congressional candidates ahead of the midterm vote with some Republicans opposing his policies and some Democrats supporting

Fortunately, there's another figure whose performance on Tuesday can help us understand the extent of Trump's support: our Trump-skeptical Republican governor, Charlie Baker.

"Nobody's going to show up to a poll to say thank you for f**king tax cuts", Bannon gripes, speaking on what he views as the GOP's failure to launch a successful midterm message around the Trump tax cuts. In fact, a Trump campaign statement earlier in the day noted that the president "will be pleased" to have Greenwood perform in person.

'I don't know that we get the credit for it but that's OK, ' he complained. "That was a surprise". Nelson is fighting a tough reelection campaign against Florida's Republican Gov. Rick Scott, while Gillum is locked in a tight battle with former Florida Rep. Ron DeSantis. So Democrats need to hold all 23 of those and pick up two of the Republican seats to win control of the Senate.

As a result, Bloomberg's team poured money into otherwise overlooked suburban districts in states like Georgia, Washington state and Oklahoma because data revealed voters there were better-educated.

Trump has a second rally in Chattanooga, Tennessee, later Sunday.

No, he said Republicans on the national level are running on "fear", calling Central American migrants about a thousand miles from the southern border an invading army.

Republicans are favoured to retain their slight majority in the US Senate, now at two seats, which would let them retain the power to approve US Supreme Court and other judicial nominations on straight party-line votes. "But what I say is look what he's done for the country and not always what he's said on Twitter".

Issues dominating the midterm discourse are jobs, healthcare, and immigration.

Trump is telling the caravans to turn back and insisting they will not be allowed in.

Voters on Tuesday will decide the $5 billion debate between President Donald Trump's take-no-prisoner politics and the Democratic Party's super-charged campaign to end the GOP's monopoly in Washington and statehouses across the nation. She lashed a sign to her front porch reading "VOTE FOR GUN CONTROL", and she is stunned every time she sees the crowd at Trump rallies on television cheering for his divisive language. On Sunday, hours before Trump was supposed to speak for his party's gubernatorial candidate in Georgia, Brian Kemp, his supporters lined up for almost half a mile while Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Free Bird" played and vendors sold Trump gear. "Trump has also exposed an authoritarian temptation in the U.S. population that nearly no one thought possible in the world's oldest democracy". In Georgia he introduced former University of Georgia football Coach Vince Dooley to address the crowd of supporters. But two years after an election that proved polls and prognosticators wrong, nothing is certain on the eve of the first nationwide elections of the Trump presidency.

- Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping talked trade on Thursday, and the president said the talks went very well - but the suddenly soothing tone might be motivated by a desire to ease fears in trade-dependent states in the USA ahead of the midterms. He is also the co-author of How Trump Won: The Inside Story of a Revolution, which is available from Regnery.

Not this time. Energized by the Senate judiciary committee hearings over the nomination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court and by searing opposition to the President, the Democrats have raised about 50 per cent more money in 32 of the 45 closest House races.

In prepared remarks for a speech Sunday at an interfaith prayer lunch in Chattanooga, Bredesen said Trump will "have plenty of derogatory things to say about me".

"They all say "Speak about the economy, speak about the economy", well we have the greatest economy in the history of our country", the President told a rally.

"In a sense, I am on the ticket", Trump said.

In terms of the legislative agenda, Mr Kondik said we could expect Republicans to have "another shot" repealing or seriously changing the Affordable Care Act.

Pennsylvania is one of the USA states where citizens are asked to vote for the Senate and the House of Representatives.

He plans to spend Election Day conducting get-out-the-vote interviews with local media at the White House, where he is set to watch returns come in.
