NC should just step back, stay home and let Trump show his coronavirus crowd how dangerous he is.

If Trump is the defacto nominee, why bother? They need to review the party platform and fix it?

Trump is a total failure.

Biden 2020

I suggest Arkansas!!

Trump won North Carolina by 3.7% in 2016. Biden's campaign thinks the state is one of many that went for Trump that are up for grabs this year.

The virus death toll continues to mount (100,000 and growing), and the economy continues to sink.

Trump and his fellow elite are using right wing media to say 'otherguys did it, not us'. When they point to China, they're probably right.

But when it comes to being ill-prepared to deal with the pandemic, in part because of Trump's cuts to healthcare related programs, the late response to taking action beyond restricting some flights from China, and the bungling still going on Trump and admin have to say they're responsible for that.

Come November North Carolina working and middle class voters hurt by Trump's failures will decide which way the state goes. The trickle down stream is turning into vapors while they watch the 1% get richer.

A better idea would be to hold it on a cruise ship and make a port call to Brazil to visit their brother in spirit!!

How about New York?

The trickle down stream is turning into vapors while they watch the 1% get richer.

For all the people that are hurting from the pandemic, the rich are raking in the cash:

Gotta wonder just how much of that $255 billion came from the Republican Pandemic assistance.

*The virus death toll continues to mount (100,000 and growing), and the economy continues to sink.*

All the more reason why people are begging to go and work.

They are right.

But liberals were screaming his travel ban was racist, please make up your minds.

Come November North Carolina working and middle class voters hurt by Trump's failures will decide which way the state goes. The trickle down stream is turning into vapors while they watch the 1% get richer.

When they see how bad Biden is, they’ll go with Trump, which shouldn’t be hard for him to achieve.

U.S. President Donald Trump warned on Monday that he may move the Republican National Convention set for August from North Carolina if the event faces state social distancing restrictions due to the coronavirus.

Sure Donald - we all know you're going to move it to Mar-A-Lago or Bedminster, so some other Trump property so you can soak the taxpayers for more money...

Too bad you can't move it to the Trump Taj Mahal and Resort in Atlantic City...huh?

And did you see Ann Coulter's rant against Trump yesterday? It was epic;

Ann Coulter went on an early Sunday morning Twitter tear, calling President Donald Trump “the most disloyal actual retard that has ever set foot in the Oval Office.” Coulter, who called Trump a “moron,” “retard” and “lout,” who was incapable of “pretending to be” a “decent, compassionate human being.”

https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/may/25/ann-coulter-turns-donald-trump-twitter-rant/

Oh my....

So Trump supporters, is Ann right or wrong?

Typical Republican response concerning the coronavirus: "We don't want the government telling us how to live our lives!"

This sounds really macho until you find yourself attached to a ventilator fighting for your life.

And did you see Ann Coulter's rant against Trump yesterday? It was epic;

Who? Oh, the insignificant writer, bomb thrower that no one wants on their Set be it liberal or conservative.

So Trump supporters, is Ann right or wrong?

No one cares what the woman has to say, so it’s irrelevant.

And how you praised her when it suited your rhetoric. You even called her "hot" like you always do with Melania.

What? Conservative icon Coulter is now insignificant and a bomber thrower? Another flip! She was once your "hero" who you once "loved" - check your archive, it's all there...

So Trump supporters, is Ann right or wrong?

No one cares what the woman has to say, so it’s irrelevant.

Hmmmm....a conservative icon is irrelevant? You must not be a conservative...

So, the question was is she right or wrong?

Trump won North Carolina by 3.7% in 2016. Biden's campaign thinks the state is one of many that went for Trump that are up for grabs this year.

Biden should think about this -

Trump won 2016 with 8% black support. Being as how black unemployment hit record lows until the coronavirus hit, he's sure to at least double that in 2020. Plus that huge "If you're having a problem figuring out if you're for me or Trump, you ain't black" gaff ain't gonna help him.

60 million America are struggling because of the Covid-19. 42.5 million claiming unemployment. Millions without healthcare. Tens of millions at the food banks. People unable to pay their rents/mortgages.

The November outcome might be different unless Trump can reverse those figures.
