WASHINGTON D.C.- Democrats and left-wing liberals might be trying to oust President Trump from the White House, but he has a huge backing trying to keep in there as well.
On Saturday, September 26th, President Trump’s campaign announced that it has over 2.2 million volunteers working tirelessly to try to ensure the President is re-elected for another four years.
Trump’s campaign Political Director, Chris Carr, posted on Twitter, saying:
“The @realDonaldTrump campaign is officially the largest grassroots movement in presidential history surpassing the @BarackObama campaign,”
🚨 BREAKING 🚨
Trump Victory has 2,275,878 volunteers and counting thanks to the BOLDNESS of this President!
🇺🇸 BIGGER 🇺🇸 BETTER 🇺🇸 BOLDER
— Chris Carr (@CCarrGOP) September 26, 2020
“Trump Victory has 2,275,878 volunteers and counting thanks to the BOLDNESS of this President!”
“Bigger, Better, Bolder,”
Carr was certain to point out that this grassroots movement is the largest in history, even surpassing the Obama campaign. In 2012, President Obama made the claim that his re-election campaign had 2.2 million volunteers.
On Friday, September 25th, President Trump held events in key states, including Florida, Georgia, and Virginia.
Lara Trump, senior adviser for the Trump campaign, was interviewed on The Kyle Olson Show this week, where she stated that the president is working hard to win the battleground states, including Michigan.
“We are feeling very good in Michigan, but we want to work for every single vote. We take nothing for granted,”
“we are working every second like we are behind all the way until November 3.”

The campaign is in full swing, and President Trump is now demanding that Joe Biden agree to a drug test before or after the election.
WASHINGTON D.C.– This Tuesday, September 29th, President Trump and Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden, will go head to head in the first night of presidential debates, in Cleveland, Ohio.
Anyone who has watched Joe Biden in a debate, or even an interview for that matter, can see the inconsistencies in his performances.
Sometimes he is on point, and no one would suspect a thing, other times he is visibly confused, and babbles on making no sense, which clearly shows a mental impairment of some sort.
Because of these inconsistencies, President Trump is now demanding that Biden take a drug tests before, or immediately following the debate. His basis for this, is the fact that he feels only drugs can explain the “uneven” performances.
Just before 10:00 a.m. on Sunday September 27th, President Trump tweeted:
“I will be strongly demanding a Drug Test of Sleepy Joe Biden prior to, or after, the Debate on Tuesday night. Naturally, I will agree to take one also. His Debate performances have been record setting UNEVEN, to put it mildly. Only drugs could have caused this discrepancy???”

According to FoxNews, these remarks come after Biden’s team recently told The Guardian they’re hoping for a repeat of his stand-out, high energy 2012 debate performance against then-vice presidential opponent Paul Ryan, which helped reinvigorate President Obama’s election campaign at the time.
Biden’s record since then has been marred by repeated verbal gaffes during his 2020 presidential campaign tour.
Earlier today, September 27th, President Trump gave an exclusive interview with “Fox & Friends,”, where he said he was preparing every day for the upcoming debate against Biden.
“When you’re president, you sort of see everything that they’re going to be asking. And they may disagree with you, but we’ve done a great job. We created the greatest economy in history,”
“And now it’s coming back. We closed it. We saved millions and millions of lives by doing what I did. And now we’re bringing it back.”
President Trump comes under fire from Democrats no matter what he does, and his recent Supreme Court nomination is no different. Democrat Richard Blumenthal was so angered by this, he has refused to meet with Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
HARTFORD, CT – During a recent interview on MSNBC, Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) stated that he would not meet with Judge Amy Coney Barrett if she is nominated to fill Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Supreme Court seat.

President Donald Trump’s decision to have Barrett fill Ginsburg’s seat has caused Democrats to enter a partisan war over the high court opening- A loud battle that has engaged Connecticut’s Democratic senators, putting Blumenthal on the front line.
“I’m going to oppose her nomination because I think it is part of an illegitimate, sham process, but it also threatens real people, real lives in very real ways. And during a pandemic, the last thing we ought to be considering is a justice who is committed to striking down the Affordable Care Act.”
“And you can be sure she has passed that ‘strong test’ the president’s words for what the test should be and I will not be meeting with her because I think it would treat this process as legitimate, which it is not.”
The CT Mirror reported that during a brief speech in the White House Rose Garden, Barrett acknowledged that her nomination faces massive Democratic opposition.
“I have no illusion that the road ahead of me will be easy. Either in the short term or the long haul.”
Sens. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), two of the 10 Democrats on the panel, will not hold informational meetings with Barrett.

She also spoke quickly about her approach to being a justice of the court. She said:
“A judge must apply the law as written. Judges are not policymakers and they must be resolute in setting aside any policy views they may hold.”
This is not the first time Barrett has faced strong opposition from Senate Democrats, including Blumenthal, who is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and vigorously fought her ascension to a seat on the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in 2017.
I will oppose the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett, as I would any nominee proposed as part of this illegitimate sham process, barely one month before an election as Americans are already casting their votes. Americans deserve a voice in this hugely consequential decision.
— Richard Blumenthal (@SenBlumenthal) September 26, 2020
Barrett’s 2017 candidacy was controversial and she was confirmed through a largely party line vote, with both Blumenthal and Senator Chris Murphy voting “no.” Blumenthal said that this time around, his opposition to Trump’s pick to replace Ginsburg is founded on more than character and qualifications of the nominee. He said:
“There is no legitimacy to the process. The American people should have a say, especially since voting has already begun in many states.”
Blumenthal then accused Senate Republicans of “dragging” the Senate “through the mud” by pushing for Barrett’s confirmation by Election Day, which would be the fastest confirmation process for a Supreme Court justice in recent history.
STARK STATEMENT from Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) on ACB
“If Trump puts Amy Coney Barrett, his hand-picked nominee, on the court, millions of people I represent in Connecticut will be kicked off their health care plans …”
— Nathaniel Reed (@ReedReports) September 26, 2020
Murphy said in a statement:
“Senate Republicans are predictably reneging on their pledge from four years ago of not appointing a Supreme Court justice during an election year, in order to rush Coney Barrett onto the court in time to end health care for millions.”
Murphy added that Barrett’s confirmation to the Supreme Court would mean that millions of people he represents in Connecticut would be kicked off their health care plans in the middle of a global pandemic.
Trump’s announcement begins a process that is almost certain to result in Barrett’s confirmation. NBC News reported that Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden, criticized Barrett’s comments on health care laws and she she would be likely to reverse the Affordable Care Act. Biden said:
“President Trump has been trying to throw out the Affordable Care Act for four years. Republicans have been trying to end it for a decade. Twice, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the law as constitutional.”
“She (Barrett) has a written track record of disagreeing with the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision upholding the Affordable Care Act. The American people know the U.S. Supreme Court decisions affect their everyday lives.”

Barrett received an ice-cold reception from Democratic members of the upper chamber, but a rule change by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell means she will not need the backing of any Democrats. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said in a statement:
“Justice Ginsburg’s dying wish was that she not be replaced until a new president is installed. Republicans are poised to not only ignore her wishes, but to replace her with someone who could tear down everything that she built. I will strongly oppose this nomination.”

Joe Manchin of West Virginia, the most centrist member of the Democratic caucus raised strong objections and said that is no way he would vote for her before the election. He said in a statement:
“Rushing to confirm a Supreme Court nominee weeks before a presidential election has never been done before in the history of our nation and it will only fan the flames of division. I cannot support a process that risks further division of the American people at a time when we desperately need to come together.”
