At an airport political rally in Mosinee, #Wisconsin, @realDonaldTrump says a #COVID19 vaccine is coming "very, very soon" and "we'll defeat the virus." #Election2020 #CoronavirusUSA Image
More than 1,000 people are outside attending the @realDonaldTrump rally and ~60% are wearing masks, according to my @VOANews colleague @pwidakuswara on the scene as the traveling @WhiteHouse radio pool reporter tonight.
Sometimes he has to turn off the politics on TV because "I can't watch me," says @POTUS.

Republican Senators Tom Cotton (Arkansas), Ted Cruz (Texas) and Josh Hawley (Missouri) are among the 20 individuals the President has added to his list of potential US Supreme Court nominees.
Cotton (R-AR): "I’m honored that President Trump asked me to consider serving on the Supreme Court and I’m grateful for his confidence. I will always heed the call of service to our nation."
Cotton (R-AR): "The Supreme Court could use some more justices who understand the difference between applying the law and making the law, which the Court does when it invents a right to an abortion, infringes on religious freedom, and erodes the Second Amendment.”

The Epoch Times National Poll was conducted by Big Data Poll and interviewed 2,169 likely #Voters nationwide sourced via voter file-verified online survey panels from Aug. 26 to Aug. 30, 2020.

Here were the findings (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/epoch-times-na…
“Mr. Biden’s edge with seniors has slipped, and the president is outperforming his minority vote share from 2016 by a modest but statistically significant degree.”

#JoeBiden holds a potentially dwindling lead over President Trump, and voters expect the incumbent to win.
#Biden leads among female voters 49% compared to Trump at 35%, while Trump leads with male voters 46% to 41%.

In rural America, where #Voters are currently the most enthusiastic about voting in November, the president leads 52% to 36%.

Pues esto de McCain lo dijo en público y (que recuerde) nunca se disculpó. Image
Y el congresista @DanCrenshawTX, veterano de la guerra de Afganistán, quien perdió un ojo en batalla y quizá uno de los republicanos más populares de Texas ahora, creo que fue el único orador en el horario estelar de TODA la #RNC2020 que evitó mencionar la palabra “Trump”.
Además esta reacción del Pentágono cuando Trump amenazó con usar al Ejército para reprimir manifestantes.

A "convention bounce" in a must-win state: The latest @wsbtv poll shows Trump leads @JoeBiden 48-41 in Georgia following the #RNC2020. #gapol ajc.com/politics/polit…
@wsbtv @JoeBiden It used the same questions, weighting formula and # of respondents as a Landmark poll released at start of the DNC that showed Trump and Biden running about even in Georgia. Trump stayed about the same, but Biden's numbers dropped from 44-41. #gapol ajc.com/politics/polit…
@wsbtv @JoeBiden Trump amassed more support among core Republican voters (87%) than Biden had among Democrats (78%). And he led 50% to 38% with voters who had watched both political conventions over the past two weeks. #gapol ajc.com/politics/polit…

#COVID19 THREAD 📌
I've been sick since April, lost hearing in one ear, had "sudden cardiomyopathy" (aka #BrokenHeartSyndrome), then was dxd with #CongestiveHeartFailiure. I fear I will never get well. About 40% of people with #COVID19 have heart or kidney problems happen.
Trump is now shopping the narrative, created for the #RNC2020, that #COVID19 is not that big a deal & that in "99% of cases you just recover." But that is in fact, false. @CNN reported Monday just how extensive #longhaulers are now--and how they are predominantly people under 50.
Also, most #longhaulers had no #PreExistingConditions prior to getting #COVID19.
Part of Trump's re-election strategy is to diminish the impact of his catastrophic mishandling of #CoronavirusPandemic. Hence the revisionist RNC story of how he & Pence saved "millions" of lives.

Trump is inciting violence in the US. It is blatant and overt. When I reported on the #RNC2020 I explained that highlighting accused felons like the McCloskeys who threatened a pastor-led demonstration with assault weaponry was a tacit permission to act similarly.
Over the weekend in #Portland and the previous weekend as well, there was a caravan of several hundred cars of Trump supporters with survivalists paramilitary and others attacking protestors. This was a highly organized event. The intent was to intimidate and terrorize.
My biggest concern is for November: Will these semi-military folks be patroling the polling places in cities like mine that Trump has already targeted.

Don't really hear McEnany today talking about #KyleRittenhouse
Will someone ask McEnany that when she claims Trump shows up, his missing health care plan still hasn't yet shown up ... four years later.

Where is it?

McEnany says Trump isn't going to weigh in on #KyleRittenhouse.

THREAD📌I know folks wanted to tank Trump's ratings by not watching #RNC2020, but the GOP laid out their plan for the next 2months and some of you seem unaware that the #pandemic was a main topic throughout. It may look like only the unrest in #Kenosha and #Portland matter, BUT>>
#COVID19 is integral to Trump's re-election campaign. As I reported throughout the #RNC2020, #coronavirus revisionism is being led by @VP Pence, head of the #CoronavirusTaskForce. Trump stepped up this messaging over the weekend by misrepresenting the @CDCgov data.
This is perhaps the worst battle we have because Trump invalidating the mortality data--and he will keep hammering at that, make no mistake--will complicate the election. Biden and Trump are both fighting for a key voting demo: white voters 55+. And Biden needs Black voters 55+.

I've been checking the main terms, accounts and hashtags on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram throughout the conventions and it seems like @GOP was more successful than @TheDemocrats in getting online engagements throughout its convention - Analysis via @crowdtangle ImageImageImageImage
DNC and #DemConvention were used 3.4 million times between 17-21 August. By contrast, RNC and #RNC2020 were used 4.6 million times from 24-28 August. Of course they might have been used both in positive and negative lights, but we're only guaging net engagements ImageImage
Here, I'm comparing the tweets and engagements of @TeamTrump vs @TeamJoe plus @JoeBiden vs @realDonaldTrump from 17-28 August. Again, there's no comparison. The Trump campaign wins easily. Now President Trump has one the biggest Twitter accounts, so the second result was expected ImageImage

What made the #RNC2020 so INCREDIBLY SACRED ? ALLELUIA ?
REVELATION 19
✨”Heaven Exults over Babylon
After these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Alleluia! Salvation & glory and honor and power belong to the Lord our God”
~Revelation 19
“For true & righteous are His judgments, because He has judged the great harlot who corrupted the earth with her fornication; and He has avenged on her the blood of His servants shed by her...
....Again they said, “Alleluia! Her smoke rises up forever and ever!” And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sat on the throne, saying, “Amen! Alleluia!”
(Her smoke rises - FIREWORKS ?)

President Trump's #RNC2020 acceptance speech was a celebration of America, pairing the patriotic stories of our past with an optimistic outlook for our future.

Just like our great President, the speech was apologetically AMERICAN.

Here are some of my favorite lines. THREAD 👇 Image
"The Republican Party, the party of Abraham Lincoln, goes forward united, determined, and ready to welcome millions of Democrats, Independents, and anyone who believes in the GREATNESS of America and the righteous heart of the American People."
"In the depths of a bloody Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln looked out these very windows upon a half-completed Washington Monument – and asked God, in His Providence, to save our union."

Full pardon just granted by @POTUS in Oval Office to @AliceMarieFree, who spoke at #RNC2020.
"We're taking Alice from a commutation to a full pardon, and I'm excited right now, and we're very proud about the job you've done and what you represent," says @POTUS in Oval Office.
"Pastor Robert Jeffries, unrelated but he was here, and we thought maybe I'll sign this and then maybe you'll like to say a prayer," adds @POTUS. "Maybe you could include the media because they need it probably more than we do. They definitely need it more than us..."

Ein Thread zu Trumps Rede auf der #RNC2020 gestern Nacht , auf der er die Nominierung zum Präsidenschaftskandidaten annahm. Fokus: Tonfall, Framing, Lügen, Strategie der Republikaner. Patrons (10€+) bekommen eine erweiterte Version als Text. #ardentanalyse
Trump beginnt seine Rede mit einer für ihn extrem untypischen Liebesbekundung an seine Familie. Er hält sich ans Skript, zumindest vorerst. Man will ihn als normalen Republikaner framen, weg von seinem schrillen Image, um skeptische Konservative nicht zu verschrecken.
Es geht weiter mit Danksagungen an Pence, es fallen die klassischen Worte wie "Glaube", "Familie" und "Werte", Military Moms, Gründerväter etc. Trump wirkt gelangweilt. Ein bisschen Leben kommt in ihn, als er die Falschbehauptung von der "greatest economy" wiederholt.

If you watched the #RNC2020 this week, you might be wondering which claims were legit. 💡TIP💡: Organizations like @PolitiFact and @factcheckdotorg are great for separating fact from fiction during and after conventions. Here are some of the fact-checks that stood out to us:
Patricia McCloskey falsely suggested that @JoeBiden is trying to destroy the suburbs. In actuality, Biden’s plan is to bring back the Obama Administration’s fair housing rule that @realDonaldTrump overturned. factcheck.org/2020/08/republ…
FYI: Obama’s fair housing rule didn’t mandate low-income housing or rezoning. It just established a more structured reporting process to address fair housing issues in communities. npr.org/2020/07/21/893…

Wondering what happened at the #DemConvention? During political conventions, speakers make claims about candidates’ records and platforms. To determine what’s legit, read coverage from fact-checking groups like @APFactCheck and @factcheckdotorg. Here’s a thread of some examples:
There was speculation that @JoeBiden pre-recorded his speech, but that speculation was false. @USATODAY proved that he delivered it live. usatoday.com/story/news/fac… Image
@BernieSanders inaccurately claimed that raising the federal minimum wage to $15 would give 40 million workers a pay raise. @USCBO projects that it would only increase the wages of 17 million people. factcheck.org/2020/08/democr…
