President Trump weighed-in Tuesday on the 2020 Democratic presidential primary; saying the “Crew” looks “easier to debate” than his 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton.
“As most people are aware, according to the Polls, I won EVERY debate, including the three with Crooked Hillary Clinton, despite the fact that in the first debate, they modulated the sound on me, and got caught. This crew looks somewhat easier than Crooked, but you never know?” posted the Commander-in-Chief on social media.

Senator Lindsey Graham unloaded on the Democratic Party following last week’s disastrous presidential debates; saying it’s sad that the Mexican government is more willing to work with President Trump on immigration than his own opposition.
“The immigration debate is turning into complete slander against the brave men and women serving our nation on the border. It’s sad that the Mexican government is more willing to work with President Trump than the Democrats are,” posted Graham on social media.

“Two nights in this is becoming @realDonaldTrump’s election to lose. Democrats are on the path to making Trump look like George Washington. The more they talk, the better he looks,” he added.

Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders unveiled his new proposal to “raise taxes on the middle class” Thursday night; saying the cost would be off-set by Americans saving money on his universal healthcare program.
— NBC News (@NBCNews) June 28, 2019
“Here’s a direct question: Will you raise taxes for the middle class in a Sanders administration?” asked NBC News’ Savannah Guthrie.
“People who have healthcare under Medicare for All will have no premiums, no deductibles, no co-payments, no out-of-pocket expenses. Yes, they will spend more on taxes but less on healthcare for what they get,” said Sanders.
Home Depot founders Bernie Marcus and Ken Langone spoke with Fox Business last week; calling Sanders the biggest “enemy of every entrepreneur” in the United States.
“Do you get annoyed when you have big old targets, not specifically on you, but that the rich, all these Democratic candidates, to a man and woman, they single out guys like you as, this is what has happened to capitalism. Unfair,” asked host Neil Cavuto.
“Bernie Sanders is out today with a plan that will tax Wall Street trades pennies on the dollar. But it’s a start to pay for, among other things, college debt and maybe free college down the road,” he added.
“Well, look, don’t bring up Bernie Sanders, because that’s a red flag in front of me, because he’s the enemy of every entrepreneur that’s ever going to be born in this country and has been born in the past,” said Marcus. “Our kids today don’t learn Western civilization. They don’t learn history. History repeats itself. You see things happening over and over again.”
BAD IDEA: Ocasio-Cortez to Debate Economics Professor Over Socialism
Socialist superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is set to square off with her Republican opponent in the coming weeks; setting the stage for a philosophical debate between the self-described Democratic Socialist and a former economics professor.
Cortez will face-off against GOP candidate Dr. Anthony Pappas; a former Associate Professor in Economics and Finance at St. John’s University in New York City.
“‘Professor vs Student’ of economics, this debate will offer the first glimpse of the major party candidates as they go head-to-head in the November 6th general election,” said a press release from Pappas’ campaign.
“Pappas is adamantly opposed to [socialism] because it is not an economic model that has worked in world history,” the campaign told the Daily Wire. “She is far away from any rational plan of action or solution.”
“Ocasio-Cortez is relying on a ‘make the wealthy pay for it’ scam which was shown to raise only $2 trillion for her spending spree,” added the campaign.

BACKLASH BUILDS: Ilhan Omar in BIG TROUBLE Over Now-Deleted Tweet on 'Latin' Immigration
Controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar found herself -once again- under fire from both parties Wednesday; posting a now-deleted tweet that claimed Latin American immigrants could never enter the US using a “merit based” system.
“A ‘merit based’ immigration policy is fueled by racism towards the Latinx community,” Omar wrote. “Our immigration policies shouldn’t be based on discrimination, fear, or bigotry. We should welcome immigrants to our country and offer a simple way to citizenship.”
Sen. Ted Cruz, the son of a Cuban immigrant who earned Math Degree and became a computer program, slammed Omar’s comments as deeply “troubling.”
“As the son of a Cuban immigrant whose Dad came to get a math degree & become a computer programmer, I’m troubled that Dems seem to believe Hispanic immigrants can’t qualify for skills-based legal immigration. Bringing in more scientists, engineers & doctors is good for US jobs,” posted Cruz.

The Congresswoman weighed-in on America’s foreign policy debate Tuesday; bizarrely saying the United States’ role in the world should be re-organized from the “perspective of a foreigner.”
“U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar has aggressively pursued a foreign policy legacy in her first five months in office, drawing sharp blowback from the Trump administration as she seeks to be a prominent voice on world affairs,” reports the Star Tribune.
“When I think about foreign policy, we need something equivalent to the Green New Deal,” Omar said. “It’s important for me to think about what an overhaul of our foreign policy should look like from the standpoint of really thinking how it impacts those around the world, and where our values intersect with what’s happening.”
“We spend a lot of money in engaging unwinnable wars, and I don’t think it matches with the values of trying to create prosperity in the United States,” she added, claiming she brings “the perspective of a foreigner” to policy-making decisions.
Omar made national headlines late last week when she viciously mocked supporters of President Trump across the country; calling GOP voters “ignorant.”
Omar was speaking with the liberal podcast ‘Next Left’ when she was asked to comment on the current immigration debate in the country.
“There are agencies that run the resettlement program. This is a process that’s run through them. If you end that contract, it’s not that refugees are not going to be resettled, it’s that the state just doesn’t get informed,” Omar said. “And so the only leverage you have is that you are part of this contract and you can be part of the negotiations on how many people get resettled in your state.”
“And so it is not that they might not be knowledgeable about this, but they use it as a tool to stir up hate and division. And ignorance really is pervasive in many parts of this country. And as someone who was raised by educators, I really like to inform people about things that they might be ignorant to, willingly or unwillingly,” Omar continued.
