LAS VEGAS, Nevada (Exclusive to The Adobo Chronicles) – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said he didn’t care about political correctness when he called for banning all Muslims from entering the United States, despite condemnations from The White House, his fellow Republican candidates, and Muslim communities in the U.S. and abroad.
But it took a short but direct statement from newly-installed (and newly-bearded) House Speaker, Republican Paul Ryan who disowned Trump’s comments, for the real estate mogul to finally realize he’s not going to get his party’s nomination. So today, Trump suspended his campaign, but only in as far as being a Republican candidate was concerned.
Buoyed by polls showing that almost three-quarters of his supporters would still vote for him if he ran as an independent, Trump put into motion his new presidential campaign as a third-party, independent candidate.
There is no stopping The Donald, notwithstanding the führer, we mean the furor, over his policy and campaign statements.
LAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chronicles) – Facing intense criticism from both Democrats and his own Republican Party, presidential candidate Donald Trump used his Instagram account today to clarify his position on ‘Making American Great Again.’ That was his campaign theme when he announced his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination.
Trump made headlines today when he called for the banning of Muslims from entering the United States.
‘I am not apologizing for my statement,’ he said, ‘but this I can tell you: I misspoke when I said during my campaign launch that we can make America great again. What I meant to say was that we can make America white again.’
MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (The Adobo Chronicles) – When the next Republican presidential debate unforlds in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 15, Senator Lindsey Graham will not be among the top tier debaters, nor be included in the kids’ table or second tier debate.
But on December 19, when the remaining Democratic presidential candidates debate on stage in New Hampshire, Graham will be the fourth debater.
The Democratic National Committee recently decided to invite Graham to the next debate because he is the most democratic among the Republican candidates and is practically on the same side as Democrats on almost all issues. Nothing could be a better vindication of Graham than his speech before the Republican Jewish Coalition in Washington, D.C. the other day.
In his off-script speech, Graham lambasted his fellow presidential candidates and others in the Republican Party for making such a big issue on immigration, abortion, terrorism, Obamacare and other hot-button topics. He was specifically critical of Senator Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. He said that the Republican Party will definitely lose the 2016 presidential election because the GOPers are focusing on the wrong side of the issues.
Graham reiterated his fuill support for Israel while assuring the audience that he will be the Republican U.S. president that will work with Democrats, or rather, the Democratic president that will work with Republicans.
