Editor’s Note: Everyone’s got an opinion, but who has the facts? At LibertyNation.com, we like to say, “Truth is Making a Comeback because Facts Matter.” Each week, we cut through the noise to bring you some of the lesser-reported highlights of the president’s week.
Monday, September 7
President Trump had no public engagements on Monday, but he did participate in a White House press briefing. In response to a question about why he was not meeting with congressional Democrats to negotiate a new Coronavirus relief package, Mr. Trump said: “I don’t need to meet with them to be turned down. They don’t want to make a deal because they know that’s good for the economy. And if they make a deal that’s good for the economy, and therefore it’s good for me for the election in November — November 3rd, and therefore they’re not going to make a deal.”
Tuesday, September 8
In Jupiter, FL, the president delivered remarks on Environmental Accomplishments for the People of Florida. He announced an extension of the moratorium on offshore drilling along the state’s Gulf Coast. Mr. Trump also extended that ruling to Florida’s Atlantic coast and widened its scope to include the Georgia and South Carolina coasts.
Before returning to Washington, D.C., the president stopped in North Carolina, where he made remarks from Smith-Reynolds Regional Airport in Winston-Salem.
Wednesday, September 9
Mr. Trump presented his list of potential Supreme Court nominees. Most were attorneys or federal judges from various jurisdictions, and a few were more well-know names, including Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Tom Cotton (R-AK), and Josh Hawley (R-MO).
Thursday, September 10
President Trump traveled to Freeland, MI, to make a campaign speech at a hanger of Avflight Saginaw. “This is not a crowd of a person who comes in second place,” Trump told the crowd, and later described his opponent, Democrat Joe Biden, as the “worst presidential candidate in the history of presidential politics.”
Friday, September 11
The president and the first lady traveled to Pennsylvania, where they visited the Flight 93 National Memorial at Shanksville. Flight 93 crashed, killing everyone on board, when passengers tried to overpower Al Qaeda terrorists who took control of the aircraft on September 11, 2001. The passengers undoubtedly foiled the terrorists’ plans to fly the plane into a target somewhere on the East Coast of the United States.
Later, back at the White House, President Trump announced that Bahrain had joined the United Arab Emirates in signing a peace agreement with Israel.
