Trump Undercuts the GOP Message Again

“President Trump’s approval ratings have been nudging upward and his party’s political standing is improving, but the president’s unceasing habit of making inflammatory and insensitive remarks is galvanizing opposition against him — especially from women — that could smother Republican momentum going into the midterm campaign,” the New York Times reports.

“Saturday was a case in point. In a Twitter post, Mr. Trump appeared to raise doubts about the entire #MeToo movement, a day after he had offered sympathy for a former aide accused of spousal abuse.”

Said Trump: “Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation. There is no recovery for someone falsely accused – life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?”

“The president’s seeming indifference to claims of abuse infuriated Republicans, who were already confronting a surge of activism from Democratic women driven to protest, raise money and run for office because of their fervent opposition to Mr. Trump.”
