The New York Times - Stocks fall after Trump says he is pulling the plug on stimulus talks.

 

breaking

 


President Trump on Tuesday abruptly ended talks with Democrats on an economic stimulus  bill, sending the stock market plunging and dealing a final blow to an intensive set of on-again-off-again negotiations to deliver additional pandemic aid to struggling Americans before the November elections.

 

Mr. Trump announced that he was pulling the plug on the effort in a series of afternoon tweets in which he accused Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California of “not negotiating in good faith" and urged Senate Republicans to focus solely on confirming his nominee to the Supreme Court in the coming weeks. ...

 



 

 ...  and Trump is tanking in the polls - Biden now has a 16% lead in one poll.

 

CNN Poll: Biden expands lead over Trump after contentious debate and President's Covid diagnosis

 

"Among likely voters, 57% say they back Biden and 41% Trump in the poll that was conducted entirely after the first debate and mostly after the President's coronavirus infection was made public."

 

"It is important to note that these increases in support for Biden have not come alongside substantial decreases in backing for Trump. The President's core supporters remain as supportive of him as they have been, if not more."

Washington Post - Coronavirus Updates: Top Pentagon officials in isolation

 

breaking

 

 

Several of the military’s senior-most leaders, including the chairman and vice-chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the heads of the Army, Air Force and Navy, are in isolation after the Coast Guard's No. 2 officer tested positive for the novel coronavirus Monday. 

 

 


Not a good look  😶

The Washington Post - Trump is reinforcing all of his coronavirus problems, all at once

 

today

 


Not only has Trump this week been treated to two of his most brutal 2020 polls to date - an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows him trailing by 14 points, while the CNN poll (the first conducted after his diagnosis) shows him down 16 - but also the president is resuming much of the same behavior that made the coronavirus a particular liability to begin with. 

 

Trump seems to believe what the moment calls for is a show of strength from him personally, a fearless leader defeating the virus and emerging even less cowed. 

 

But the polls repeatedly suggest people would prefer steady leadership, honesty and a real plan. ...

 

 

 

 

 

flat line credibility

Pity his base see him as a "strong fearless leader" who "fought the coronavirus and won". Bit harder to try and sell that to the families of the 210 000+ odd dead, some of whom I'm sure would have been Republicans too.

And Pentagon top brass - most of the senior offices are now WFH - including the Chairman of the Chiefs of Staff.

 

Russian and China can attack any time now...

 

All going according to Putin's plan.

Oh, I definitely will, the same way they always send thoughts and prayers whenever there's another mass shooting.

Good.  He's a thoroughly dedicated far-right extremist/fascist.  Architect of the plan to put refugee children in cages, a white nationalist (yes - he identifies as Jewish to deflect allegations of racism), and a serial liar.  I hope he has a very unpleasant experience with Covid throughout his last few weeks of power.
