President Donald Trump is poking fun at former Joe Biden on a day when both politicians were campaigning in Nevada for candidates on the November 6 ballot. It also raises the question of whether he can credibly argue that his presidency is on the ballot to get his supporters out to vote and then turn around and say his record has nothing to do with a possible Republican disaster.But he's going to try. Turnout from the heavily immigrant union was credited with giving Democrats key wins in Nevada in 2016, when Hillary Clinton won the state. But Biden says Trump is "all about himself". And on Monday, former President Barack Obama is returning to Nevada, a state that he won in both his 2008 and 2012 campaigns.
Senate Minority Leader Charles "Chuck" Schumer (D-NY) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) earlier released a joint statement where they accused the US President and Republicans of distracting attention away from problems posed by the US health care system. Yet Trump tweeted Saturday that "we could write up and agree to new immigration laws in less than one hour" if Democrats "would stop being obstructionists and come together".
In Michigan, Democrat Gretchen Whitmer has a solid lead over Republican state Attorney General Bill Schuette to replace outgoing two-term Gov. Rick Snyder.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was confronted by a mob during a campaign stop in Coral Gables, Fla., on Wednesday, with protesters cursing at her and calling her a communist.
Don't expect Donald Trump to cop to a "thumpin" " or a "shellacking" if the midterm elections turn into a triumph for Democrats.The President, even as he races around the country animating rowdy campaign crowds and launching a full-on media blitz, is making one thing clear: if Republicans go down on November 6, it's not on him.Like much of Trump's unorthodox presidency, his strategy is laced with contradictions.
