‘There’s something going on’ with Obama’s body language – Trump
The presumptive GOP presidential nominee, Donald Trump, is on the roll as his persona rocks the GOP Convention pending his impending major speech and acceptance of the GOP nomination. The billionaire business magnate and “politician” made his first comments on the opening day of the Republican National Convention (RNC) in Cleveland, Ohio . . .
On Monday the first day of the convention Trump said: “there’s something going on” with Barack Obama’s body language, his latest comments criticizing the President’s behavior and messaging in apparent reference to projecting America’s strength.
During an interview Monday morning on “Fox & Friends,” Trump was asked to respond to Obama’s comments on the shooting in Baton Rouge, Louisiana that left three police officers dead.
“I think we need strength. I think we also need somebody that can be a cheerleader. He’s been a great divider in this country,” Trump said of Obama.
Republican Convention Erupted in Chaos as Never-Trump Forces Defeated
GOP Leaders Set Off Uproar Over Rules Vote In Cleveland
Last Grasp Anti-Trump Effort At GOP Convention Quashed
The floor of the Republican National Convention erupted into chaos Monday amid an attempt by Never-Trump forces to change the GOP rules. The ill-advised bid was defeated, thwarting the last effort to block Trump’s path to the GOP nomination.
GOP delegates engaged in an uproar of chants of “Roll call vote” and “USA” on the floor (photo: above) after Rep. Steve Womack of Arkansas, the presiding chairman, forced a voice vote and judged that those who favored the existing rules prevailed. Colorado’s delegation walked out of the floor in protest amid the ensuing chaos.
The push to force a roll call vote was defeated, closing the last available avenue for the Never-Trump movement to unbind delegates. Donald Trump amassed more than 1,237 delegates through the primary season, securing about 13 million votes (a record) enough to secure the nomination. But there was an effort to release some of those delegates so they could vote for other candidates. It failed woefully. Trump did not comment.
Bushes Acting ‘Childishly’ and Need to ‘Get Over’ Jeb’s Loss – Gingrich
The former speaker of the House, who was widely considered one of Trump’s top three vice presidential contenders, made the comments today on “Good Morning America” in Cleveland, the site of the convention.
“The reason people nominated Donald Trump is because they weren’t happy, and frankly, I think the Bushes are behaving childishly,” Gingrich (photo: above) told George Stephanopoulos on “GMA.” “Jeb [Bush] lost. Get over it.”
Jeb Bush, a former Florida governor and son and brother of the former presidents, left the race in February – in the wake of Donald Trump’s political juggernaut in America.
