Trump defends Tulsi Gabbard, Jill Stein in ‘Hannity’ exclusive


ANYMORE. BECAUSE THAT LEVEL WAS SO GOOD. THEY DON’T TALK ABOUT ANYMORE, SEAN. THE REASON THEY DON’T TALK ABOUT IT, THERE IS NOTHING TO TALK ABOUT. SPENT THE REASON, THE NEXT THING YOU SAY THOUGH, I THINK, MAKES YOUR POINT. YOU SAY AS YOU SAW YESTERDAY, THE WHOLE NONSENSE ENDED WITH A POOR PERFORMANCE BY A MAN NAMED ROBERT MUELLER, INCOMPETENT PERFORMANCE BUT THEY SAY A LOT OF IT STARTED WITH UKRAINE. WHATEVER YOU DO, IT IS IMPORTANT.>>President Trump: AND IT DID, IT ENDED WITH A POOR PERFORMANCE AND THIS IS AFTER TWO YEARS OF AN INVESTIGATION WHETHER $45 MILLION OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT, THEY HAD 2,500 SUBPOENAS, 500 WITNESSES, ALL BECAUSE PROBABLY HILLARY CLINTON SAID JUST LIKE SHE DID WITH TULSI GABBARD, JUST LIKE SHE DID WITH JILL STEIN, SHE SAID “JILL STEIN IS A RUSSIAN ASSET. NOW COME I DON’T KNOW JILL STEIN. I KNOW A ENVIRONMENTALIST AND PROBABLY A GOOD WOMAN BUT THE LESSON SHE HAS A RUSSIAN ASSET. I DON’T KNOW TULSI GABBARD BUT I KNOW WHEN THINK SHE IS NOT AN ASSET OF RUSSIA. THESE PEOPLE ARE SICK. THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THEM.>>Sean: I WANT TO SHOW YOU THIS AND WE WILL PUT IT UP ON THE SCREEN FOR PEOPLE AT HOME. UKRAINIAN EFFORTS TO SABOTAGE TRUMP BACKFIRE. THIS WAS JANUARY 11, 2017. YOU WERE INAUGURATED. THIS ARTICLE TALKS ABOUT HOW UKRAINE WORKED WITH HILLARY TO INFLUENCE THE ELECTIONS. THEY GIVE CHAPTER AND VERSE HOW THEY DID IT. NOW, AS THE PRESIDENT, DO YOU FEEL THERE WAS — YOU SPENT TWO AND HALF YEARS WITH RUSSIAN COLLUSION AND IGNORE THE DOSSIER IN UKRAINE ADMITTING THAT THEY HELPED HILLARY.>>President Trump: THE DOSSIER WAS A DISGRACE. THE DOSSIER WAS TOTALLY FAKE. NOW IT HAS BEEN PROVEN TO BE FAKE. PEOPLE, YOU KNOW HOW THAT WAS DONE. YOU HAVE A TRACK RECORD NOW AND YOU KNOW AS WELL AS EVERYBODY THEY ARE DOING AN INVESTIGATION, BUT I THINK BEFORE YOU DO THE INVESTIGATION, SO THEY DO A FAKE DOSSIER ON ME. THEY TRIED TO RELEASE IT BEFORE THE ELECTION TO AFFECT THE ELECTION. I DON’T KNOW HOW THEY DID. IT’S THE ONLY THING I RESPECT ABOUT THE PROCESS IS THEY REFUSED TO PUT IT IN BEFORE THE ELECTION BECAUSE IT COULD HAVE HAD A LITTLE IMPACT. MAYBE IT COULD HAVE HAD A LITTLE MORE THAN THE IMPACT. THEY DO A FAKE DOSSIER THAT WAS PROBABLY MEANT TO GET OUT BEFORE THE ELECTION SO THAT THEY COULD AFFECT THE ELECTIONS. AND LOOK AT THE PEOPLE THAT WROTE IT. LOOK AT WHERE THEY CAME FROM. AND LOOK AT THE WIFE OF THE MAN WHO WORKS, I WON’T EVEN MENTION NAMES, AT THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE.

Ukrainegate explained: why Donald Trump is facing his most perilous crisis | FT


Frankly, Ukraine, we
want to help them. And I do like the new president. You know why I like him? Because he was honest. Because he said there
was no pressure. Why, of all the things that
have happened in the Trump presidency over the
last three years has this incident,
this Ukrainegate, for lack of a better word,
been the scandal that has threatened Donald
Trump’s presidency the most? Therefore, today, I’m announcing
the House of Representatives is moving forward with an
official impeachment inquiry. First of all it’s
important to remember that impeachment and
the impeachment process is a political process,
not a legal process. So although there
are other things that a lot of his
critics have charged that Trump did that
was illegal this is now something
that’s explainable. And in politics, being
able to explain something is very, very important. You want to get the public
and other members of Congress on your side in this. And being able to explain that
the president of the United States picked up the phone,
called a foreign leader, and asked him, in some ways
threatened him, to dig up dirt on your preeminent
political rival, is incredibly explainable. This is something your average
American can understand. And what we’ve seen from
polling now is that there is – public opinion is shifting
against the president on this, for this very reason. It’s hard to imagine
a set of circumstances that would have alarmed
the founders more than what’s on that call. So to my Republican
colleagues that say there’s nothing to
see here, or, yeah, it’s bad but is it really
something you’d remove the president
from office for, they’re going to have to
answer: if this conduct doesn’t rise to the level of
the concern the founders had, what conduct does? Now… Again, it doesn’t take
a rocket scientist to figure this one out, whereas
in the Mueller investigation with all the Russia scandal,
it was incredibly complicated. The number of players
involved, and what was said, and the he said/she
said element of it, that was a very
difficult scandal to explain to your
average voter. This one is not. So as a political process,
impeachment for this Ukraine phone call is a much easier
thing for the Democrats to argue. The actions of the
Trump presidency revealed dishonourable fact
of the president’s betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal
of our national security, and betrayal of the
integrity of our elections. The second thing which I think
is important to acknowledge is that this happened while
Donald Trump was president. I guess it seems
very obvious to say that but remember, the
accusations made against Trump of soliciting help from the
Russians during the campaign happened before
he was president. So should the president
of the United States be held liable for things that
happened before his presidency? Again, it was a more
complicated issue. This one clearly happened in
the Oval Office, on the phone. Something that can be easily
explained as an abuse of power. And as a result, again, gets
back to point number one, much more explainable from
a political perspective. It’s a whole hoax. And you know who’s
playing into the hoax? People like you and
the fake news media that we have in this country. The question, sir,
was what did you want President Zelensky to do
about Vice-President President Biden and his son, Hunter. Are you talking to me?

Senator Cory Booker Stands Up for Workers | Fourth Democratic Debate


Thousands of GM workers here in Ohio and across the country are on strike. All of you on the stage have voiced support for these workers. Senator Booker, one of the latest impasse is in negotiations involves bringing jobs back from Mexico. As President, how would you convince GM to return production to the United States? Well, first of all, the one point I wanted to make about the UBI conversation, and I hope that my friend Andrew Yang will come out for this, doing more for workers than UVI would actually be just raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, It would put more money in people’s pockets, than giving them $1,000 a month. We have to start putting the dignity back in work. And number one, you start having trade deals, not like this thing that the President’s trying to push through Congress right now that gives pharmaceutical companies, other corporations benefits and doesn’t put workers at the center of every trade deal. We must make sure we are not giving corporate tax incentive for people to move jobs out of our country, but start to put the worker at the center of that and make sure that they have the resources to succeed. But it’s more than that. I stood with these workers, because we’re seeing this trend all over our country. I stood with unions, because right now unions in America are under attack. As union membership has gone down, we have seen a stratification of wealth and income in this country. So the other thing that I’ll do as President of the United States is begin to fight again, to see union strength in this country spread. To make sure we have sectoral bargaining, so that unions from the auto workers all the way to fast food workers, can ensure that we improve worker’s conditions and make sure that every American has a living wage in this country.
