John Bolton’s PAC Money Dries Up as Top Republican Funders Shun Him Following Betrayal of Trump

Bolton is learning that actions have consequences.

Neocon warmonger John Bolton betrayed President Donald Trump last week to promote his soon-to-be-released book, but he is learning that his disloyal and disreputable actions will have severe consequences.

Several of President Trump’s biggest and most influential supporters are on the war path against Bolton, making sure that his political action committee (PAC) and super PAC receives no funding from prominent Republican donors.

“You’re on the president’s side or you’re not. It’s simple,” said Arthur Schwartz, a GOP consultant closely tied to the Trump White House.

The pro-Trump GOP king makers are using their clout to influence their colleagues to deny Bolton the cash he needs to run his operations. The mustache-laden turncoat is getting frozen out from the lucrative Republican donor class that has sustained him for decades.

Bolton’s super PAC and his PAC are currently supporting five Republican lawmakers, including Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Cory Gardner of Colorado and Thom Tillis of North Carolina as well as Reps. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois and Lee Zeldin of New York. These legislators may want to distance themselves from Bolton’s operation if they wish to stay in the president’s good graces.

“He’s dead to everyone,” an aide to a Trump super donor told CNBC, adding that it is a “safe assumption” that Bolton’s operation will not last much longer.

The president’s son has essentially confirmed what the donors are saying. Bolton has made his bed, and he will now have to sleep in it.

“Bolton is going to wake up Thursday, come to the sad realization that he’s running out of usefulness to his newfound Democrat/media ‘friends’ and will be facing a very lonely end to his lackluster (could never get Senate confirmation) career,” Donald Trump Jr. wrote in a comment to CNBC.

President Trump threw Bolton under the bus one final time last week with a couple of brutal and hilarious tweets:

Bolton’s upcoming book “The Room Where It Happened” describes an alleged conversation between Trump and Bolton regarding the quid pro quo used by the Democrats to impeach the president. Bolton reportedly claims in the book that Trump sought his advice on how to leverage Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy into getting dirt on his political rivals. Bolton has also stated his willingness to testify against the President, but will not get that opportunity because the Senate rejected witness testimony in the impeachment trial that is expected to end on Wednesday.

Neocon Bolton’s gamble to stab Trump in the back has not apparently paid off, in more ways than one.

President Trump’s Approval Rating Soars as the Public Increasingly Supports His Coronavirus Response

The public supports Trump’s crisis response.

Published

on

A Gallup poll has shown that President Trump’s approval rating has jumped to 49 percent as the coronavirus pandemic continues.

His approval rating has jumped five points in the past month. This matches his all-time high, which was previously achieved in late January and early February. Ninety-two percent of Republicans support the President, while 43 percent of independents and 13 percent of Democrats approve of Trump.

Americans also approve of the way President Trump has handled the coronavirus pandemic. Sixty percent of Americans support Trump’s disaster response while 38 percent of Americans disapprove. Ninety-four percent of Republicans support his response, while 60 percent of independents and 27 percent of Democrats support how Trump has handled coronavirus.

“The Trump administration has received some criticism for its response to the COVID-19 pandemic — including that the president downplayed the threat, at least up until his nationally televised address on March 11,” Gallup noted in their report.

“On March 16, Trump acknowledged the seriousness of the situation by urging people to avoid gatherings of more than 10 people and to have workers and students stay home if possible. The administration has had daily press conferences since then to update the nation on what the federal government is doing to address the situation,” they added.

It is not uncommon for an incumbent president to gain in popularity during a crisis, as every commander-in-chief in office during a serious threat has gained support from the public as a result.

“Historically, presidential job approval has increased when the nation is under threat. Every president from Franklin Roosevelt through George W. Bush saw their approval rating surge at least 10 points after a significant national event of this kind. Bush’s 35-point increase after 9/11 is the most notable rally effect on record,” Gallup noted.

Although he is peaking right now, President Trump has consistently shown strength in various polls for many months as the public realizes the fake news is lying about his administration:

New polling from Quinnipiac released Thursday shows President Donald Trump handily defeating every major Democratic presidential candidate in hypothetical general election matchups…

Well-known Democrats Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden are the most competitive candidates against Trump in the Wisconsin general election, and even they lose by a considerable seven points to the incumbent Republican president.

Even Pete Buttigieg, an Indiana mayor who claims to have a credible path to victory in midwestern states the President grabbed from the Democratic Party in 2016, appears nowhere near seriously competing in the state.

The polling suggests Democrats will have a serious uphill battle in order to contend for the electoral votes of midwestern states such as Wisconsin, in 2020 or other future Presidential elections.

President Trump’s polling in statewide and national surveys has consistently improved as the Democratic Primary erupts in contention, suggesting that the divisions within the Democratic Party may bode well for his re-election.

The state was formerly assumed to be a safe blue state, before Trump won its electoral votes in a shocking upset in 2016. Pennsylvania and Michigan also went Republican for the first time in decades in Trump’s victory, and will prove essential to the election in 2020. Polling of the latter two states shows closer general election contests than in Wisconsin.

President Trump is showing his leadership bona fides during the crisis, and the public is thrilled with the way he is handling the coronavirus pandemic.
