TRUMP spendING massive amounts of dollars advertising in states he won in 2016

According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, Donald Trump’s re-election campaign is being forced to spend massive amounts of dollars advertising in states he won in 2016 as the president falls farther and farther behind his presumptive Democratic presidential opponent Joe Biden.

With a new ABC/Ipsos poll showing the president trailing in the polls on a host of topics, the Journal reports that Trump’s campaign is trying to shore up the president’s numbers in states he shouldn’t have to worry about including one where he has fallen behind Biden despite the former vice president and liberal PACs affiliated with him yet to run a general election ad.

The worst may be yet to come as America finally wakes up to Trump’s incompetence and cruelty

Donald Trump’s Independence Day speeches offered more of the almost never-ending funeral ceremonies for America’s democracy, dignity and decency. Instead of trumpet-like exhortations to American greatness and goodness on the country’s birthday, Trump chose to deliver horribly off-key funeral dirges.

‘We have to be prepared for Trump losing’: Presidential allies are reportedly eyeing the exit ramp

Laura Ingraham — who has been called a “Neo-Nazi fan favorite” by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.; a “white supremacist” by Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas; and a “monster” and a “racist” by her own brother — allegedly told a group of dinner guests recently that “we have to be prepared for Trump losing.”

The debate over reopening America’s K-12 schools

This spring, Kwesi Ablordeppey worked nights taking care of veterans at Holyoke Soldiers’ Home in Massachusetts, where at least 76 patients have died of Covid-19.

During the day, though, he has been the resident IT consultant at his home in Springfield — his two teenage daughters often needing his help troubleshooting problems with their Zoom lessons. Like most students around the country, the 10th-graders shifted to online learning earlier this year when their school closed to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.

This left Ablordeppey, a single dad, with the dual burden of working and managing his kids’ education — something many American parents have struggled with in the pandemic. “It’s not something that I’m comfortable with,” he said, but “we have to adapt to the situation.”
