Trump update

Donald Trump and his administration continues to make the news, often for the wrong reasons.

This has raised a lot of concerns: Trump “voter fraud” commission seeking voter data from all states

President Trump’s commission investigating alleged voter fraud in the 2016 elections has asked states for a list of the names, party affiliations, addresses and voting histories of all voters, if state laws allow it to be public.

A Wednesday letter from the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity gives secretaries of state about two weeks to provide about a dozen points of voter data. That also would include dates of birth, the last four digits of voters’ Social Security numbers and any information about felony convictions and military status.

 

In addition to the voter information, the letter asks state officials for suggestions on improving election integrity and to share any evidence of fraud and election-related crimes in their states.

The data will help the commission “fully analyze vulnerabilities and issues related to voter registration and voting,” vice chairman and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach wrote.

On Thursday, Virginia’s governor and the secretaries of state in California and Kentucky, all Democrats, said they will not share the requested information.

The California and Virginia officials said attention would be better spent upgrading aging voting systems or focusing on Russia’s alleged election meddling. Mr. Trump has alleged “serious voter fraud” in both states.

“California’s participation would only serve to legitimize the false and already debunked claims of massive voter fraud,” Democratic Secretary of State Alex Padilla said in a statement.

Clinton won California by about 3 million votes.

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe said there is no evidence of voter fraud in the state.

“At best this commission was set up as a pretext to validate Donald Mr. Trump’s alternative election facts, and at worst is a tool to commit large-scale voter suppression,” he said in a statement.

Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes expressed similar sentiments, reports CBS Lexington affiliate WKYT-TV. A statement released by her office said in part, “”The president created his election commission based on the false notion that “voter fraud” is a widespread issue – it is not. Indeed, despite bipartisan objections and a lack of authority, the President has repeatedly spread the lie that three to five million illegal votes were cast in the last election. Kentucky will not aid a commission that is at best a waste of taxpayer money and at worst an attempt to legitimize voter suppression efforts across the country.”

Mr. Trump created the commission through an executive order in May.

Trump seems to care about his popularity, or lack of, and he is still struggling in approval ratings.

    So, voter fraud business, not to worry. If he keeps with this sort of nonsense he’ll probably pay for it at the next election. Meantime, what’s he actually doing policy-wise & how’s it all going?

      If it’s nonsense why are these Democrat states so hesitent to provide data to prove it? Surely their refusal just lends the claims credibility.

        Importing millions of 3rd Worlders who then vote overwhelmingly Dem because of all the largess on offer is basically treason.

        No wonder the pro 3rd World migration flood crowd are now running scared.

        1. They fookin loathe Trump with a passion & will do anything they can to frustrate every single initiative he implements, whether its good bad or indifferent
        2. Their refusal does not lend credibility to his claims. That is a complete non-sequitur, is at odds with your oft-stated insistence on innocent until proven guilty therefore you will not speculate
        3 Having regard to the foregoing 2 devastating arguments, I win again.

              Stick with your ankle fetish, Sir Gerald. But keep away from psychiatrists. Could be risky for you. Especially with your insomnia as well.

              You must admit, it was a rather pretty ankle, as expected.
              I shall await the psychiatrist’s report before commenting further Sir Alan. I expect it to be a good read.

              PS: Honestly, you think you’re having a private conversation with a lovely lady & then you discover there are others who’ve taking a prurient interest in it! 😡

              Play with your stamps like a good boy, Sir Gerald. Keep away from ankles. They can be dangerous.

              Well, I don’t really like to complain, as you know, Sir Alan.

              I can’t seem to find my OUTRAGEOUS! stamp. No doubt it’ll turn up.

              Anyway, must say toodle loo & crack on. Tenants to harrass & evict.
              Sir Gerald.

      “Meantime, what’s he actually doing policy-wise & how’s it all going?”

      Its going very well, the SC has made it clear his travel ban is all OK and the Globalist politicios in the courts are just playing games. They will need to be purged from the system.

      Flood of 3rd worlders into USA is drying up fast, ICE is working overtime rounding up illegals and deporting them pronto.

      And its not even 1 year yet!

      I don’t see it as an obsession so much as not being able to look away from someone making a total ass of himself in public.

      His tweets are highly undignified, he is making himself and his office look ridiculous.

      I pity that poor girl who has to face the press on his behalf. Nice pearls, I love my pearls, too. But having to try to explain away his ever increasing asininity must be a thankless job. ‘He was provoked.’ I don’t agree, but as President he should have more respect for the office and not use it as a platform for playground nyah nyah smart-arse remarks.

      If haematolagnia means what I think it does, then yes. He is really hung up on women bleeding, isn’t he ? Women menstruating is a fact of life, but it’s not one that most men talk about as he does…blood coming from her wherever, indeed,. Vulgar, vulgar, vulgar.

          That, too !

          He is certainly irrational and seems, at times, to have no idea of what is expected of someone who is the president..
