Published

Neocon White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster said on a May 2016 Center for Strategic and International Studies panel that the U.S. military must make long-term commitments to getting to know the enemy, and people and populations, and he bristled at the idea that war should be efficient.

“I think sometimes, you know, people actually want to go back to war that’s, you know, fast, cheap, efficient. Wage to standoff range. And it’s just too bad. I mean, I think, actually the trend is in the opposite direction. Because that is becoming less and less likely,” McMaster said (36:45 Mark In This Video).

At another panel in 2015 for the George Soros-funded New America Foundation, moderator Jake Tapper refused to take a question from a male in the audience, opting instead for a woman. McMaster taunted, “You should have come in drag, you might get a question asked.”

McMaster has long been at odds with nationalists in the Trump White House, including Trump himself, after he took over for General Mike Flynn, who was ousted for vague reasons involving Russia. McMaster is in the middle of firing a series of Flynn allies from the National Security Council. McMaster also wanted a ground invasion and regime change in Syria to take out Bashar al Assad, but was overruled by Trump, who instead backed efforts to destroy ISIS in the region. Trump ended the CIA’s covert arming of jihadist rebels in Syria.

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

The public supports Trump’s crisis response.

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.
