A few standout tweets from the weekend [feel free to post your own, you can find them @ realDonaldTrump.]
Our great Farmers will recieve another major round of “cash,” compliments of China Tariffs, prior to Thanksgiving. The smaller farms and farmers will be big beneficiaries. In the meantime, and as you may have noticed, China is starting to buy big again. Japan deal DONE. Enjoy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 17, 2019
Reuters explains that on Friday the Department of Ag., said it will “begin making a second round of 2019 trade aid payments to U.S. farmers next week.”
This is the second round of a three-tranche aid package totaling $16 billion that was announced in May, at the time the News Blender reported that the first round of payments was set to begin in July or August.
Mr. Chairman, Joe Biden may be Sleepy and Very Slow, but he is not a “rabid dog.” He is actually somewhat better than that, but I am the only one who can get you where you have to be. You should act quickly, get the deal done. See you soon! https://t.co/kO2k14lTf7— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 17, 2019
NBC News reports that Pyongyang’s office Korean Central News Agency lashed out against former Vice President Joe Biden on Friday. It was unclear at the time what comments the 2020 presidential hopeful made that provoked the attack.
The Washington Post on Monday reports that according to the official website of the official Korean Central News Agency, Foreign Ministry adviser Kim Kye Gwan said that he read President Trump’s tweet, but that North Korea was not interested in another fruitless meeting.
We are no longer interested in such talks that bring nothing to us. As we have got nothing in return, we will no longer gift the U.S. president with something he can brag about, but get compensation for the successes that President Trump is proud of as his administrative achievementsGwan statement via the Washington Post.
Impeachment Inquiry News.
This week the House Intelligence Committee will hold five more public hearings allowing the public to hear testimony from eight witnesses.
Impeachment inquiry hearings next week:— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) November 13, 2019
Tuesday morning: Jennifer Williams and Alexander Vindman
Tuesday afternoon: Kurt Volker and Tim Morrison
Wednesday morning: Gordon Sondland
Wednesday afternoon: Laura Cooper and David Hale
Thursday: Fiona Hill
More details to come.
- Vice President Mike Pence aide Jennifer Williams. Williams was interviewed by the three House Committees on November 7th. Her testimony was made public on November 16th.
Tell Jennifer Williams, whoever that is, to read BOTH transcripts of the presidential calls, & see the just released ststement from Ukraine. Then she should meet with the other Never Trumpers, who I don’t know & mostly never even heard of, & work out a better presidential attack!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 17, 2019
Williams according to her testimony was present in the Situation Room for the phone call. Asked if she took notes, she replied “yes.” (pg. 62 starts the exchange regarding the July 25th call.)
CNN reported on Sunday that when asked for a comment regarding the tweet, Vice President Pence’s press secretary, Katie Waldman responded by saying, “Jennifer is a State Department employee.”
People who have cooperated and testified in regards to the Impeachment Inquiry have been labeled without evidence as “Never Trumpers.” Williams is not the first person attacked by the President, as the News Blender reported on Friday, via tweet, the President attacked former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch during her public testimony.
For another example: Ambassador Bill Taylor, who replaced Yovanovitch after she was abruptly removed from her post in the Ukraine was also labeled a Never Trumper via tweet.
Never Trumper Republican John Bellinger, represents Never Trumper Diplomat Bill Taylor (who I don’t know), in testimony before Congress! Do Nothing Democrats allow Republicans Zero Representation, Zero due process, and Zero Transparency….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 23, 2019
As a reminder Never Trumper =’s Human Scum.
The Never Trumper Republicans, though on respirators with not many left, are in certain ways worse and more dangerous for our Country than the Do Nothing Democrats. Watch out for them, they are human scum!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 23, 2019
For more publicly available documents regarding the Impeachment Inquiry @ Just Security.
For Monday the President has tweeted 5 times.
Never has the Republican Party been so united as it is now. 95% A.R. This is a great fraud being played out against the American people by the Fake News Media & their partner, the Do Nothing Democrats. The rules are rigged by Pelosi & Schiff, but we are winning, and we will win!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 18, 2019
Never has the Republican Party been so united as it is now. 95% A.R.
This is still not accurate.
The Washington Post reported on November 1st, that “Overall, Trump’s approval hasn’t changed all that much on our polling since he’s been president. He has never been above 42 percent approval and never under 36 percent. Right now, he’s at 38 percent approval, on the lower side of things.”
The article goes on to say that President Trump’s approval ratings among Republicans is about 74 percent.
In this week's lieflation, Trump has promoted his imaginary 94% Republican approval rating to an imaginary 95% Republican approval rating. He's still in the 80s. pic.twitter.com/5qrJsGX6wy— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) October 6, 2019
Our Crazy, Do Nothing (where’s USMCA, infrastructure, lower drug pricing & much more?) Speaker of the House, Nervous Nancy Pelosi, who is petrified by her Radical Left knowing she will soon be gone (they & Fake News Media are her BOSS), suggested on Sunday’s DEFACE THE NATION….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 18, 2019
….that I testify about the phony Impeachment Witch Hunt. She also said I could do it in writing. Even though I did nothing wrong, and don’t like giving credibility to this No Due Process Hoax, I like the idea & will, in order to get Congress focused again, strongly consider it!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 18, 2019
NEW: @RealDonaldTrump tweets in response to @speakerPelosi 's suggestion on @facethenation this Sunday that he testify before House Democrats in the #impeachment probe. Here's what Pelosi said: https://t.co/OHifqRTQHi pic.twitter.com/4iP6vCBAon— Face The Nation (@FaceTheNation) November 18, 2019
President Trump offered written answers to some of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s questions during the Russian Interference Investigation.
According to the Mueller Report, located in Appendix C, they received President Trump’s written responses in late November 2018.
As a reminder.
White House Says It Will Not Cooperate With Impeachment Inquiry https://t.co/x1WRhFolOd— Snip🦈Bytes (@SnipBytes) October 8, 2019
Just finished a very good & cordial meeting at the White House with Jay Powell of the Federal Reserve. Everything was discussed including interest rates, negative interest, low inflation, easing, Dollar strength & its effect on manufacturing, trade with China, E.U. & others, etc.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 18, 2019
The Hill reports also present in the meeting between Chairman Powell and President Trump was Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. The meeting at the White House comes after Powell, who the President often criticizes on Twitter, offered testimony before Congress.
During his testimony he said the Fed intends to keep the interest rate steady, unless the economy takes a turn for the worst. While Powell did not respond directly to the pressure President Trump often places on the Fed via tweets and public statements, he did explain that negative rates wouldn’t make sense while the U.S. economy is still expanding.
The meeting was not listed on President Trump’s schedule.
“Congressman Van Drew (D-NJ) SLAMS Democrats for ‘fracturing the Nation’ with Impeachment probe. ‘We already know how it’s going to end.” @FoxNews— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 18, 2019
Fox News reports that Rep. Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ), was one of the two Democrats that voted against the Impeachment Inquiry. In an interview on Sunday with Sunday Morning Futures hosted by Maria Bartiromo Van Drew said:
There is some discussion among some of them, quietly, privately, of concern certainly. I mean, what I’m hearing out in the street is they’re kind of tired. They’re kind of worn out. They’re kind of bored, most folks. And they really want to move on unless there’s something new and amazing. We know the end game here,Van Drew via Fox News.
There has still been no tweet regarding the Governor’s election from Louisiana.
