Trump says ‘Iran made a very big mistake!’ by shooting down US drone


On Thursday, an Iranian surface-to-air missile shot down a U.S. military surveillance drone over the Strait of Hormuz in an “unprovoked attack,” U.S. officials said, disputing Iranian reports that the aircraft was over its territory.

“Iranian reports that the aircraft was over Iran are false,” U.S. Central Command said in a statement. “This was an unprovoked attack on a U.S. surveillance asset in international airspace.”

Impeachment? What impeachment?

"Last ditch Doomsday Weapon" is wag the dog. Hints are out there.

I fear Trump will stop at nothing to get re-elected, even nuking or at least bombing Iran. The GOP is already hauling out abortion (again) and deporting the brown skins with force (it makes better headlines that way).

Will that be enough down the home stretch? Maybe it will be as McCain suggested 'bomb, bomb, bomb; bomb bomb Iran...

The leading newspaper in Orlando, where Trump is kicking off his 2020 campaign, made its 2020 endorsement: 'Not Donald Trump'

The Orlando Sentinel, the leading newspaper in the Florida city where President Donald Trump is set to launch his 2020 reelection campaign, on Tuesday made it very clear it would not be endorsing Trump.
The Sentinel said it has "seen enough" from Trump over his tenure so far and there's "no point pretending we would ever recommend that readers vote for Trump."
Since the 1950s, the Florida newspaper has overwhelmingly endorsed Republican presidential nominees with few exceptions.
Trump's campaign kickoff event is set to be held in Orlando on Tuesday night.

Trump Campaign Fires Its Own Pollsters After Leaked Polls Show Him Losing
Internal pollsters found Trump trailing Biden in 11 states, including double-digit gaps in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Donald Trump's reelection campaign is in rough shape for a sitting president, according to its own internal polling. A 17-state poll conducted in March showed the president trailing former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden in 11 states. ABC News obtained some of the actual data that showed "a double-digit lead for Biden in Pennsylvania 55-39 and Wisconsin 51-41 and had Biden leading by seven points in Florida. In Texas, a Republican stronghold, the numbers showed the president only leading by two points."

The Trump campaign responded with an odd mash-up of denials. Trump told his aides to claim that the polls, which were conducted in late March, didn't actually exist. When Trump's 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale was confronted with the actual numbers by ABC News, he said, "These leaked numbers are ancient, in campaign terms, from months-old polling that began in March before two major events had occurred: the release of the summary of the Mueller report exonerating the President, and the beginning of the Democrat candidates defining themselves with their far-left policy message." Trump himself called the numbers "phony polling information" and asserted that his polling was actually "the strongest I’ve ever been."

And, now, the campaign has, according to the New York Times, fired three of its five pollsters to minimize the chance of damaging leaks in the future. That includes the Polling Company, previously run by Kellyanne Conway, Trump's former campaign manager and current White House counselor. The campaign also fired Adam Geller, who worked for former New Jersey governor Chris Christie, and Michael Baselice, a pollster for former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, both of whom were on Trump's 2016 campaign. Only pollsters Tony Fabrizio and John McLaughlin are staying on the 2020 campaign for now.
