Another stunt to keep Trump in the news on a Saturday, because he’s losing.
Yesterday’s presser at his golf club was such a joke, this one shouldn’t even be covered, since it’s really coordinated with a Trump fundraiser. Wimp of Wall Street.

Subject: WH Travel #2 – Arrived at Bedminster, goat herd spotted
The pool has been swept and is now at Bedminster ahead of our second news conference of the weekend. We had our temperatures taken at the club.
There was a brief pause during our drive onto the property to make way for a herd of goats that live here on Trump’s property.
Will keep you posted on timing for the presser
This is an incredible level of corruption. The White House, at taxpayer expense, is having an official presidential event for people paying the president's business hundreds of thousands of dollars. Again. https://t.co/l2Xyp84jZC

Trump is losing. A great and broad political coalition is coming to repudiate his incompetence, malice and stupidity. He is cornered. The Great MAGA empire is reduced to a ballroom at a golf club in NJ. TRUMP has failed. America is wrecked. 162,000 dead. He will lose

#Kodak deal with US government to produce pharmaceuticals appears to be on hold.
The US DFC tweeted that ‘recent allegations of wrongdoing raise serious concerns’. The President of The United States is involved in open market manipulationhttps://t.co/dl4Xyja0MG

These are here so Trump benefits from calling his golf course a farm:
President Trump's animosity toward the U.S. intelligence community has forced intelligence officials to walk a fine line between serving the president and maintaining the integrity of their work. An exclusive report in @NYTMag by @DraperRobert. https://t.co/h4iuQvzn8L

Watch out for a typical Trump trick:
He’ll pretend to seek a delayed election and, when that fails, he’ll claim the undelayed Nov 3 election failed to make a choice, thus triggering state legislatures’ power under 3 USC §2 to name their own electors. https://t.co/RpCzMs2XHC

Announces two VA bills, goes to boilerplate on Executive Order, goes to campaign speech yammering, Trump has apparently not read the text before says a couple times “you know what we’re talking about”.
Usual blah-blah. It’s now a full-blown campaign speech.
Claims Biden has gone “further left than Bernie” does a riff on voter fraud and voter-ID.
Trump claims Dems “want to steal the election” (darn projection)
More complaining about mail-in balloting whining about Nevada.
Trump is playing to his country club buddies.
Trump brags about his crowds in Fl. “Fake News”
Mentions “ballot harvesting” (like the GOP in NC)
Trump goes for the usual name calling. riffs on southern border wall (only 3 miles are new)
More Trump lies about the stimulus bill.
Claims release of inmates and illegal immigrants will be sent to Portland. (weird segue) “I honestly believe that they (Dems) don’t love our country”
More Trump lies about support for education
Trump is tired of reading.
MSNBC cuts away, CNN cut away quickly. Fox News stays.
Trump is now doing stand-up for his country club buddies — stooges laugh at attacks on media.
More China-blaming Trump does more ad-libs blah-blah about ventilators.
Does all kinds of chicken-in-pot promises with executive order. This was a coordinated move with the GOP Trump hasn’t read the text, $400/week
(Essentially, yesterday Trump previewed things that had yet to be written yesterday- today is the signing ceremony)
More tax-cuts because Trump wants that recession to get worse.
Trump now pimps stocks
Trump doesn’t know the difference between headwinds and tailwinds.
More Trump bafflegab, attacks Green New Deal calls it “childish”.
Trump now relishes talk about bad marriages doing shtick for the country club.
Blah-blah “greatest economy in the history of the world” usual talking points (more lies.)
Signs executive order says he will entertain questions.
Trump does usual spokesmodel display. gives away pens (almost Blazing Saddles)
Q: which governors will sign on?
Q: Why $400 when people were getting $600 before?
Trump has no answer
Q: payroll tax?
Trump: “everyone wants it”
Q: further negotiation?
Q: when will this be implemented?
Trump punts “rapidly” “very soon”
Q: this will be tied up in the courts
Trump: “if we get sued, maybe people don’t want to get the money”
Q: That was a false statement sir
Dues paying club members (presumably) given access to room where the president will make remarks and sign an executive order. This is a WH organized official government business event. Not a campaign event. pic.twitter.com/rrv9uhv7Hb

President Trump just claimed if re-elected he may eliminate the payroll tax. He can’t do that on his own but also keep in mind that payroll taxes fund social security and Medicare.

Defunding Social Security and Medicare is quite a campaign slogan. https://t.co/2TbbCGbIEZ

There were four pens out but he signed all the executive orders with the same one. pic.twitter.com/d0Gy4hx3Os
