I keep seeing this story today... hard to credit it to be honest.may drop out of the 2020 presidential race if he believes he has no chance of winning, a Republican Party operative reportedly told Fox News.
The claim comes in a report in the president’s favourite news outlet that cites a number of GOP insiders who are concerned about Mr Trump’s re-election prospects amid abysmal polling numbers.
A federal judge appointed by President Trump has ruled that the Trump administration must end a policy that effectively bars most Central American migrants fleeing poverty and persecution from obtaining asylum in the United States.
The asylum rule in question prevents migrants from gaining protection in the United States if they fail to first apply for protection in a country en route to the southwest border. But Judge Timothy J. Kelly of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia said late Tuesday night that the Trump administration illegally put in effect the rule by not allowing the public to weigh in on it. The administration had argued that allowing for a public comment period after announcing the rule would have prompted migrants to rush to the border, a claim Judge Kelly did not accept.
The ruling was only the latest in a string of defeats the Trump administration has been dealt by judges who decided that administration officials, in their haste to make policy, violated federal law laying out how regulations must be carried out or rolled back. The Supreme Court last month preserved Obama-era protections for about 700,000 young undocumented immigrants known as Dreamers, ruling that the administration had violated procedures in rolling back the rule.
In April, an effort to roll back nutrition standards for school mealschampioned by former first lady Michelle Obama, was reversed on similar procedural violations. In the environmental arena, federal courts have found at least five times that the Trump administration violated the Administrative Procedure Act by skipping steps when it tried to delay conservation rules that had already taken effect.
The same factors may have cost the president his hard-fought rule to block asylum seekers.
“It’s notable in this case that Judge Kelly reiterated what other judges recently retorted to the administration: Do your homework,” said Claudia Cubas, litigation director for the Capital Area Immigrants’ Rights Coalition, one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit.
I saw this earlier. It's a slightly confusing story though isn't it cos it's not necessarily linked to the rally. I read it to be that random people who have been tested in the last few days have all tested positive... it could in fact be nothing to do with the rally right? Though it's probably a factor in some cases.Oklahoma (where Trump recently held his poorly-attended rally*) now has a 100% positive covid-19 test rate
*I guess 6,000 crammed into a building is still a fairly large number of people
I choose to believe that it's because of the rally, and the sorts of people who love Trump enough to attend his ridiculous Caliguloid ego-wank sessions all think it's a hoax anyway, so it's karmically satisfying. (Sucks for non-Trumpists who've caught it from them, of course.)I saw this earlier. It's a slightly confusing story though isn't it cos it's not necessarily linked to the rally.
