Michigan Republican Mayor Who Voted For Trump Switches To Biden: ‘Even More Deranged Now Than I Thought Then’
By Ken Meyer Mar 10th, 2020, 9:09 am
A Michigan mayor and longtime Republican has decided to renounce President Donald Trump in favor of former Vice President Joe Biden.
The Chicago Tribune has released a profile on Michael Taylor,
mayor of Sterling Heights, MI, which is situated in the middle of Macomb County, where many midwestern voters supported Trump in 2016 after voting for Barack Obama twice. Taylor has established himself as a prominent local Tea Party figure, who has always voted Republican, but he confirmed he will support Biden in the Michigan primary and the 2020 election.
“I think Joe Biden is the candidate who can unify all of the Democrats, and he’s the candidate who can appeal to moderates and Republicans like me who don’t want to see four more years of President Trump,” Taylor said.

“Virtually anytime I speak on the phone to a foreign leader, I understand that there may be many people listening from various U.S. agencies, not to mention those from the other country itself. No problem!” Trump tweeted.
“Knowing all of this, is anybody dumb enough to believe that I would say something inappropriate with a foreign leader while on such a potentially ‘heavily populated’ call.” – TrumpTweet
Death blows, ends you like fear
Death blows, rapes you like a god
The shower of nihilism is pouring over the world
After all the flesh, bones & blood is burned out
Now the world is full of the symbol of absence
Absolute speed to the endless death
“So incoherent is the Trump administration’s economic policy that no lesser a figure than Bill Dudley, a former president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, has said that America’s central bank should treat the prospect of President Trump’s re-election as a threat to the United States and the world economy.”

Nikki Haley says the UN loves Trump: ‘The media got this so wrong’

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley
said reporters got it wrong when they said U.N. leaders laughed at President Trump after he said he has accomplished more than most U.S. presidents.
After that comment at the U.N. General Assembly, a murmur ran through the crowd, prompting Trump to react by saying, ” so true.” Attendees broke into laughter then, and many press reports said the group was laughing at Trump’s claim.
But Haley said the audience was laughing because Trump was being so honest with them.
The media got this so wrong,” Haley said on Fox News.
“I deal with these leaders every single day. I know exactly how they think,” she said. “Do they love America? No. Do they respect America? Now they do.”
“When he said that, they loved how honest he is, and it’s not diplomatic, and they find it funny,” Haley said.
She said U.N. leaders aren’t used to being spoken too so honestly, and were “taken aback” by Trump’s remarks. She also said the U.N. crowd loves being around Trump.
“All day yesterday, they were falling over themselves to get a picture with him, to talk about how great his speech was, how strong it was,” she said.
“Whether he said good things about them or not, they love that he’s honest with them, and they’ve never seen anything like it,” she said. “And so there’s a respect there.”
“I saw that the media was trying to make it something disrespectful. That’s not what it was,” Haley said. “They love to be with him, that’s the only time you’ll see that entire chamber standing room only.”

President Trump on Tuesday strode to the podium at the United Nations General Assembly in New York City to “share the extraordinary progress” the U.S. has made during his time in office. The reaction he received from the assembled world leaders wasn’t what he was expecting.
“In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country,” Trump proclaimed. There was a smattering of audible laughter from the assembled diplomats, representing 193 countries.
Donald Trump bragged about himself to the United Nations. The UN laughed.

(CNN) President Donald Trump’s touting of how his administration has accomplished more than any — yes, any — past administration in its first two years is one of his most consistent applause lines in his campaign patter.
“I don’t believe there has been any administration in the history of this country that has done more in two years — and we’re not even up to two years yet — than our administration,” Trump said last week during a campaign speech in Las Vegas — while reading a literal paper list of those accomplishments.
“Nobody has done what this administration has done in terms of getting things passed and getting things through,” he told a group of sheriffs earlier this month.
His supporters love the line: Despite all of the losers and haters, Trump is MAGA-ing!
Which brings us to Tuesday morning — and Trump’s speech to the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
“In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country,” Trump said, as he does.
“So true,” said Trump, clearly caught by surprise by the laughter. “I didn’t expect that reaction, but that’s OK,” he added to more laughter and some applause.
Before we go any further let me be clear: I wasn’t in the room. I was watching it live on TV from Washington. But, watching on television, the perception of those few seconds was clear: The gathered world leaders — or at least some of them — were laughing at Trump’s contention that he had done more in two years than any previous American administration ever.
Which makes some sense given that the claim seems, on its face ridiculous.
