"So I guess they said she was threatened," Trump says to his MI rally about Gov. Gretchen Whitmer--as if he doesn't believe the FBI case against 13 men for plotting to abduct her.
Crowd chants "Lock her up!"
Yup--their gov was targeted & they want HER locked up.
Law & order.
Trump brags to MI rally about how many doctors treat a president -- "and each one wanted to touch another part of my body...I said, 'Get the hell out of here, doctors.'"
Trump on Biden to MI rally: "He's a criminal. He's committed crimes."
Trump tells MI rally that the Trans-Pacific Partnership that Obama negotiated with 11 other Pacific nations "would've been worse than NAFTA but I stopped it."
Yes, he did, but then he included numerous TPP provisions in the new NAFTA he boasts of.
After Trump 2x got MI rally to chant "Lock her up" about Gov. Whitmer -- a week after FBI foiled a kidnap plot -- she tweets: "This is exactly the rhetoric that has put me, my family, and other government officials’ lives in danger...It needs to stop.
Trump: "Joe Biden is a corrupt politician, and the Biden family is a criminal enterprise." Said Biden makes "Crooked Hillary" look "like 'Amateur Hour.'"
After more than 1 hr at MI rally, Trump's repeating himself--again attacking Biden as "a criminal," at least 3x saying Rep. Ilhan Omar "hates America," hitting Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, Pelosi, Gov. Whitmer, Hillary Clinton (but he says he likes Bill).
Lot of women on his target list.
Trump for umpteenth time at this MI rally attacks Hunter Biden. Says, "He is a national security risk."
Then, w/o a pause, Trump turns to teleprompter & reads that he'll protect Social Security, Medicare & people w/preexisting conditions (even as he asks SCOTUS to kill it)
Trump has started 2nd rally, now in WI, & just minutes in he's slammed "Pocahontas," Kristen Welker & Savannah Guthrie. (He doesn't even name Sen. Warren) They're 3 of 9 women he hit in earlier MI rally, incl'g Harris, Clinton, Pelosi, Reps Ilhan Omar & AOC, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer
...and already the crowd chants "Lock her up" when Trump names Rep. Ilhan Omar, the former Somali refugee elected to Congress from Minn.
As in MI, he purposely exaggerates & mispronounces her first name.
Repeats 2x that she "hates" the US
Trump falsely says that Biden has referred to law enforcement as "the enemy" and says that "anti-police rhetoric" of Biden & Democrats is responsible for violence against police; he refers specifically to the ambush of two police officers (doesn't mention Compton CA)
At WI rally, Trump is again insinuating that he caught COVID-19 from Gold Star families at the White House.

Even as Trump was campaigned in '16 to 'drain the swamp,' he chose as campaign mgr Paul Manafort, who'd made millions as a global swamp creature for pro-Russia oligarchs, doing the work of Putin.
Details are in the Senate Intel Committee's newest report:
"ProRussian Ukrainian oligarchs with deep economic ties to Russia also paid Manafort tens of
millions of dollars and formed strong ties with Manafort...
Manafort hired and worked increasingly closely with a Russian national, Konstantin
Kilimnik...a Russian intelligence officer."
Kilimnik, the Russian intel agent, & Manafort "formed a close and
lasting relationship that endured to the 2016 US elections & beyond...throughout his
time on the [Trump] Campaign, Manafort directly & indirectly communicated with Kilimnik, Deripaska,
& the pro-Russian oligarchs..

Finally Robert S. Mueller III responds to the months of WH lying to undermine the investigation he headed & Trump's commutation of Roger Stone's sentence:
"Stone was prosecuted and convicted because he committed federal crimes. He remains a convicted felon, and rightly so."
"Stone became a central figure in our investigation for two key reasons: He communicated in 2016 with individuals known to us to be Russian intelligence officers, and he claimed advance knowledge of WikiLeaks’ release of emails stolen by those Russian intelligence officers."

The shutdown cost the economy $11 billion, $3 billion of which is a permanent loss, acc'g to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.
CBO projected economic growth will slow this year to 2.3%, down from 3.1% as the sugar high from tax cuts abates.
The president who promised economic growth of 4% or more will run for reelection in a year when, CBO projects, growth will decline to 1.7%.
More from CBO: The president who promised he'd erase deficits will run for reelection with deficits having risen every year of his term, to a projected > $1 Trillion in FY 20 from $587 billion (under Obama annual deficits declined after the first global recession year).
