Biden leaves voters and reporters hanging during swing through N.H.
Publisher:  POLITICO
Saturday, 25 January 2020 18:48


SALEM, N.H. — Joe Biden spent two days in New Hampshire without taking any questions from voters at his public events, a striking break from tradition in the first-in-the-nation primary state.

Instead, Biden held two “community events� where he spoke for about 30 minutes each time. Afterward, he took photos and chatted one-on-one with people on the rope line surrounding his podium.

He made no mention of the state’s opioid epidemic, which polls consistently show is the biggest issue facing the state. Voters at the events said they also would have liked to hear about his plans for health care, the cost of prescription drugs and the economy.

Candidates routinely take questions from the public at New Hampshire town halls, a longstanding practice that tests the retail skills of presidential hopefuls and forces them to answer directly to voters' concerns.

Biden’s decision to skip q-and-a's left some people in the audience disappointed. At a packed event at an elementary school in one of the most Republican areas of the state, a number of topics voters said they would have liked to hear about went unaddressed.

Charles Traver, a retired 77-year-old from the Republican-leaning town Atkinson, said he would have raised his hand if he had the chance to ask about economic issues.

“The one thing that I would have liked to have commented on — the economy seems to be doing incredibly well but what I don't know is how much we're mortgaging our future,� Traver said after the event. “And whether mortgaging our future really diminishes the actual improvement in the economy.�

Biden touched on economic issues for about a minute during his town hall Saturday.

“Ladies and gentlemen, President Trump thinks this economy's doing great,� Biden said. “It's doing great for the folks at the very top. They're not all bad folks. But tell me about how great it's doing for the rest of America? Fact of the matter is, 44% of the American people are living on the equivalent of what amounts to about $13 an hour.�

Maria Dutton came to the event to ask him about the cost of prescription drugs.

“I want to ask what's his plan to deal with Big Pharma,� she said beforehand. “Everybody makes promises, but it's ridiculous.�

Biden did not mention the issue. He tangentially talked about health care for less than a minute, reminding voters about his role in passing the Affordable Care Act.

Jim Demers, a longtime Democratic strategist who recently endorsed Biden after his first choice, Sen. Cory Booker, dropped out, met briefly with Biden before the event. He said Biden decided he wants to have face-to-face conversations with people instead of the larger town hall forum.

As Demers spoke, Biden worked the rope line, taking selfies, thanking supporters and briefly answering questions from a student reporter.

Demers said it’s important for Biden to interact directly with people, perhaps more than taking questions from the audience.

“I think for a lot of people they feel more comfortable having a private conversation than raising their issue or something about themselves in front of all the people. So I think it's still a very effective way to communicate,� he said.

The campaign declined to comment.

Biden hasn’t held a press conference in the state since he filed to be on the ballot on Nov. 8. He has done a handful of one-on-one interviews with local media outlets, including one with WMUR-TV, the ABC affiliate in Manchester, to be aired Sunday.

Biden has long limited contact with the press, giving just enough occasional access to reporters to avoid the accusation that he’s completely walled off. Similarly, he historically has taken a few questions at town halls in early states — usually no more than three — because his campaign calculates that voters prefer to see him at the rope line for selfies and handshakes and occasional hugs, and because Biden has demonstrated a longstanding penchant for going off-message in unscripted environments that his handlers want to avoid.

The Biden campaign’s reticence to exposing him to the press has been heightened by the controversy over Trump’s impeachment. Republicans have sought to counterattack by bringing up the overlap between Biden’s handling of U.S. policy in Ukraine while his son landed a lucrative contract with a Ukrainian natural gas company.

‘You Think Russia Ever Goes In and Gets Ukraine, or No?’: The Wildest Things Trump Said at a Private 2018 Dinner Revealed
Publisher:  VICE
Saturday, 25 January 2020 18:48

WASHINGTON — President Trump was even more blunt, crass and unfiltered during a private dinner 2018 at the Trump Hotel last year than he normally is in public.

While the big standout of the meal was his demand to fire the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, his transactional approach to geopolitics, total lack of concern for helping America’s international allies and openness to letting businessmen convince him to back specific policies that’d benefit them illustrates just how the leader of the free world operates behind closed doors.

It’s not always clear exactly who was there and who’s talking throughout the hour-plus dinner. Trump’s voice is clear, as are those of his son Don Jr., as well as Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman. But it’s crystal clear how Trump operates.

Here are the five wildest things he had to say.

“How’s Ukraine Doing? … How long would they last in a fight with Russia?”

Trump grills Lev Parnas on how Ukraine is doing against Russia, clearly with some strong interest in the country — and almost no base of information.

“How’s Ukraine doing? Don’t ask,” Trump begins the conversation.

“You think Russia ever goes in and gets Ukraine, or no?” he follows up.

The president then seems surprised the country has oil reserves.

“Ukraine has oil? Ukraine? How come they don’t have any money?” he asks. “Why aren’t the companies going in there? too risky?”

Then: “How long would they last in a fight with Russia?”

“I don’t think very long. Without us, not very long,” Parnas replies.

“Without us,” Trump responds, sounding like a thought is occurring to him.

A minute later: “Do they feel they’re going to be okay?”

“They feel like they’re going to be okay — if you support them,” Parnas says, in a bit of foreshadowing. Trump later held up $391 million in military aid to Ukraine, in what Democrats say was a bid to pressure the Ukrainian president to announce an investigation into his political rival Joe Biden.

“This whole caravan is a positive thing because it’s showing people how crazy it is”

President Trump spent months publicly railing about a caravan of migrants working its way up from Central America. His fear-mongering on the issue, relentless coverage from Fox News and a heavy ad campaign from the GOP amounted to the Republican Party’s closing message of the 2018 campaign. During this dinner, just months before those elections, he made clear he was privately cheering it.

“This whole caravan is a positive thing because it’s showing people how crazy it is,” he said during the dinner, saying the quiet part loud.

Earlier on, Trump talks about the construction of his beloved wall between the U.S. and Mexico, discussing how border wall agents wanted to be able to see through the wall so he’d given up on his plans for an all-concrete structure.

“I would have loved to see a concrete wall but we just can’t do it,” he said.

“I wrote you a letter or recommendation, didn’t I?”

A running theme of the dinner is different businessmen plying Trump with ideas that would clearly help their own bottom line. And Trump makes it clear he’s willing to help grease the wheels in certain circumstances.

At the top of the meeting, Trump asks someone identified as a family member of golfer Jack Nicklaus about how their South Korea golf club is going. He then makes clear he helped the Nicklaus family with the course.

“I wrote you a letter or recommendation, didn’t I?” he says. “I know they have the letter because the president told me he got the letter so they must be treating you pretty good.”

Later in the call, Parnas pushes him to help coax the marijuana industry towards legality at the national level, specifically by allowing pot companies access to banks. Others push Trump on other issues — from managing steel tariffs to using government funds to help build roads for self-driving trucks to deregulating truckers’ safety standards.

“Had she picked Bernie Sanders it would’ve been tougher”

As he discussed the 2016 election, Trump praised his potential 2020 rival Sen. Bernie Sanders for holding similar trade views to his. And he said he was relieved when Hillary Clinton didn’t name him as her running mate.

“Had she picked Bernie Sanders it would’ve been tougher. He’s the only one I didn’t want her to pick,” Trump said.


He then predicted that Sanders would take another shot at the White House.

“I think he runs. Because he does a lot of television,” he says.

“The European Union is a group of countries that got together to screw the United States”

It’s no secret Trump isn’t a fan of Europe. But he’s particularly harsh in his comments on both the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

“The European Union is a group of countries that got together to screw the United States,” he says at one point. “But the European Union is really big… it’s brutal. But we’re changing that rapidly too.”

Later, he complains that other NATO countries aren’t doing enough to support the organization.

“Well, how about Germany opening a pipeline into Russia. And, we’re supposed to be fighting Russia. So Germany is paying Russia like $2 billion a month and they’re a member of NATO,” he says. “And we’re paying 90% of the cost of NATO.”

The U.S. accounts for about 70% of defense spending by NATO countries.

Nikki announced the couple’s engagement on January 3, revealing that the Dancing With the Stars alum, 37, had proposed in November while they were in France. “We have been trying to keep it a secret but really wanted to share our excitement for the New Year!� she wrote on Instagram.

In an appearance on “The Bellas Podcast� on January 15, the Russia-born dancer admitted he found it a challenge to pick out the right ring for his wife-to-be.

“I know Nicole loves, you know, big expensive things and so does a lot of women out there,� he said. “And, as a man, you want to try to give what you think she deserves.�

Nikki and Chigvintsev met when they were partners on DWTS in 2017. At the time, she was engaged to fellow wrestling star John Cena, but they called it quits in April 2018. They later reconciled, only to end things for good in July. Us Weekly confirmed in January 2019 that Nikki and Chigvintsev were dating.
