Trump Willing to risk budget crisis to Build US-Mexico Wall

Trump Protests

At least on paper, it's a more conciliatory tone than the overall thrust of his rally in Phoenix, during which he loudly slammed the media, Democrats, and some members of his own party.

"You know where my heart is", Trump told the crowd.

On two occasions, I lied to you via telepathy and convinced you that the cameras broadcasting your rally had been shut down because the media were too frightened to share your criticism of CNN and other outlets.

A Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday showed that among all adults, 63% blamed white supremacists, compared to just 16% who blamed counterprotesters for the violence.

Three people were arrested over the protests, police said.

"The crowds were so big, nearly as big as tonight, that the people said right at the beginning, 'You know, there's something special happening here, ' " Trump said.

For over 20 minutes, Trump continued to insist that his response to the attack - where Heather Heyer was killed - was "perfect" and blamed the media for the widespread controversy and condemnation that his failure of leadership has provoked.

"Don't bother, it's only a single voice".

Just as it wasn't necessary to finish watching Trump's speech, it's not worth recapping in detail what Trump said last night. "How did he get in here?"

In some ways, the Phoenix rally was an encore of his Trump Tower performance the previous Tuesday, a showcase of the core Trump - impassioned and indignant at the seven-month mark of his presidency.

Trump suggested Phoenix' hot weather kept protesters away. Where are they? Well, it's hot out. I agree with the letter writer that this is a healthy way to deal with an unpleasant but real part of a country's history, and feel it would be useful to us as Americans as well. I got them all in there, Let's see.

"In the words of the late Heather Heyer, 'If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention, '" a letter read from the Executive Board of Penn State's College Democrats, referencing the 32-year-old woman who was killed when a vehicle plowed into a group of counter-protestors on Saturday.

It's a jump, then, to assume that Trump has lost a lot of support since the election or that these numbers show that he is in trouble for re-election in 2020.

"Phoenix crowd last night was awesome - a packed house. We will make America great again - greater than ever before, I promise". "Not a fan of Jeff Flake, weak on crime & border!" another tweet said. I got the white supremacists, the neo-Nazis, I got them all in there. "One way or another, we're going to get that wall". Daniel Webster, 42, said mainstream media unfairly characterize the 63 million people who voted for the president as "racist".

Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton had asked Trump to delay his political event to allow for more time of national healing. "We will win", he said. reported that demonstrators outside the convention center "largely refrained from violence" throughout the day.

In the comfort of his most fervent fans, Trump often resurrects his free-wheeling 2016 campaign style, pinging insults at perceived enemies such as the media and meandering from topic to topic without a clear theme.

As he did Tuesday night, Trump also went after GOP Sen. CNN also said thousands of protesters were in attendance.

But of course, many people will expunge the Trump Administration from any responsibility for what appears to be the resurgence of the Nazi party because his supporters refuse to read between the lines, or understand any type of historical context. Fifty-four per cent of voters say they disapprove of the job he's doing. We rate his statement False.
