“Republican President Donald Trump “tore into the so-called resistance of Democrats opposed to his agenda on Saturday, accusing them of ‘resisting the will of the American voter,'” according to The Hill.
“‘In his weekly address, Trump blamed Democrats for slow-walking many of his nominees through the confirmation process, saying that Senate Democrats had “‘shamelessly obstructed’ hundreds of qualified picks.”
“‘Senate Democrats call it ‘the resistance,’ he said.”
Thomas L. Friedman: “With the primary season winding down and the midterms soon upon us,… If I were writing the choice on a ballot, it would read: “Are you in favor of electing a majority of Democrats in the House and/or Senate to put a check on Trump’s power — when his own party demonstrably will not? Or are you in favor of shaking the dice for another two years of unfettered control of the House, the Senate and the White House by a man who wants to ignore Russia’s interference in our election; a man whose first thought every morning is, ‘What’s good for me, and can I get away with it?’; a man who shows no compunction about smearing any person or government institution that stands in his way; and a man who is backed by a party where the only members who’ll call him out are those retiring or dying?
If your answer is the former, then it can only happen by voting for the Democrat in your local House or Senate race.”
“American democracy is truly threatened today — by the man sitting in the Oval Office and the lawmakers giving him a free pass.“
