Russia is interfering in our elections to help Donald Trump & tear down Joe Biden. No other country is doing this. And Russia is doing so with the help of Trump’s Senate allies Ron Johnson and Lindsey Graham.

Trump may not know it while playing golf with his billionaire friends, but millions of unemployed Americans are now going hungry and facing evictions. If the GOP can provide $1 trillion in tax breaks for the rich, they can support a $600 supplement for unemployment insurance.

So, the President is announcing largely illegal policy via executive order at his own business, with paying customers in attendance, and promising a bribe to anyone who votes for him

Trump suspending the payroll tax has nothing to do with pandemic relief and everything to do with the GOP's crusade to destroy what little social safety net exists in the US.
The payroll tax funds Social Security and Medicare. #SaveSocialSecurity #SaveMedicare https://t.co/ekOwj5e7l2

🗣 Say goodbye to Social Security and Medicare – Trump announced he's cutting the tax that pays for them.

Trump says he will be "signing some bills."
The Senate didn't pass a bill. The House and Senate did not agree to a bill. There is no bill.

Trump has no idea what he’s even signing. pic.twitter.com/s8t3005f92

Of the four documents just signed by @POTUS, only one is an executive order ("assistance to renters and homeowners"). The other three are memoranda.

A reporter asks POTUS why he keeps making false statement that he passed Veterans' Choice. He ends the presser, to applause from club members.

It's fairly alarming that the President has been lying for years at nearly every public event about passing a bill and this may be the first time a reporter has challenged him about it to his face. https://t.co/93YX6Svidu

Seems like momentum for change is building in Israel.
I don't know if he's corrupt, but I hope whoever replaces Netenyahu, will not be tone deaf or stubborn & can find a way to create equality, peace, prosperity & a symbiotic future.
