IMMIGRATION/JOE BIDEN/MASS SHOOTINGS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Joe Biden lit into President Donald Trump on Wednesday [8-6-19], assailing his moral compass and asserting that the president ‘has publicly and unapologetically embraced a political strategy of hate, racism and division.’ Vowing that ‘we can’t, and I will not, let this man be reelected,’ Biden warned an audience in Burlington, Iowa, that ‘everything that makes America America is at stake’ in next year’s election. Biden tied the address to the pair of mass shootings that took place over the weekend — one of which was carried out by a suspect who mirrored some of Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric — linking the president in no uncertain terms to the growing threat of white supremacism in the U.S. It’s not ‘that far at all’ of a line from Trump’s language when discussing undocumented immigrants and neo-Nazi protesters in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017 to various mass shootings throughout his presidency, Biden told the crowd.”

JOE BIDEN/MASS SHOOTINGS/OHIO/TEXAS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “In a televised speech on Monday [8-5-19] condemning two mass shootings over the weekend, President Trump mistakenly named the wrong city in Ohio…The speech followed a weekend of violence in two states. After a massacre on Saturday left 22 dead and dozens injured at a Walmart in El Paso, Americans awakened on Sunday to the news of another mass killing overnight, this time an attack in Dayton’s entertainment district that killed nine and injured 27 others. Mr. Trump wasn’t the only politician to trip over the details. On Sunday night, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination, misstated the locations of both shootings. At a fund-raiser, Mr. Biden referred to ‘the tragic events in Houston today and also in Michigan the day before,’ according to a pool report.”

ELECTION/JOE BIDEN/MEDIA/POLLS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump renewed his attacks on Fox News on Friday [7-26-19], complaining that the network’s pollsters aren’t favorable enough to him after claiming the news organization had been ‘Proud Warriors’ for him in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election…The poll he appears to be referencing shows the president losing a handful of hypothetical matchups against 2020 Democratic front-runners. The national survey said Trump would lose to Biden by 10 percentage points and to Sen. Bernie Sanders by 6 points. It showed him beating Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, though, by 1 point, slim differences within the poll’s margin of error, which is 3 percentage points. That poll showed Biden with a comfortable cushion among 2020 Democrats, with a lead of more than double his next closest competitor, Sanders.”

ELECTION/JOE BIDEN/POLLS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Joe Biden is the only Democratic White House contender leading President Donald Trump in a hypothetical Ohio general election matchup, according to a poll released Thursday [7-25-19]. Registered voters in Ohio surveyed by Quinnipiac University favor Biden over Trump by a margin of 50-42 percent, while other major Democratic candidates — including Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, California Sen. Kamala Harris, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg — remain virtually tied with the president. Trump captured 51.3 percent of the vote in Ohio and its 18 electoral votes in the 2016 presidential election, while Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton garnered only 43.2 percent of the battleground state’s voters. Former President Barack Obama won the state, long considered a bellwether in American presidential politics, in 2008 and 2012. Biden remains atop the expansive Democratic field in Ohio, with the support of 31 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters.”

FOREIGN POLICY/JOE BIDEN/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “After spending two weeks sparring with his presidential primary opponents, Joseph R. Biden Jr. sought once more to rise above the Democratic fray on Thursday [7-11-19], delivering a sweeping foreign policy address that denounced President Trump as incapable of global leadership and called for a new commitment to multilateral diplomacy. In broad but unequivocal terms, Mr. Biden offered a scathing assessment of Mr. Trump’s leadership, saying the president’s judgment has tarnished the country’s reputation abroad and undermined its ability to achieve its foreign policy goals. As a counterpoint, Mr. Biden set forth his own foreign policy vision that he said was needed to restore America’s position as a global leader, including working with other countries toward collective aims…Returning again and again to themes of democracy and American values, Mr. Biden delivered a message of unity over division and promised to reverse many of Mr. Trump’s decisions.”

COURTS/GOP/JOE BIDEN/NOMINATIONS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Former Vice President Joe Biden said he would be open to renominating to the Supreme Court federal appeals court Judge Merrick Garland, whose Senate confirmation in 2016 was thwarted by the Republican Senate . In an interview with Iowa Starting Line on Friday [7-5-19], the Democratic presidential hopeful called Garland a ‘first-rate person.’ Obama first nominated Garland in 2016 to fill the vacancy created by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, however, announced the Senate would not consider an appointment until after the presidential election. Upon taking office, President Donald Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch to fill the seat…Biden said he would not try to expand the court as president, but added that reforming campaign finance laws to allow for public financing could reduce partisan gridlock during judicial nominations.”

ELECTION/FOREIGN POLICY/JOE BIDEN/NATO/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Former Vice President Joe Biden savaged Donald Trump’s foreign policy agenda in an interview that aired Friday [7-5-19] morning, warning that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization will be completely disbanded if the president captures another White House term in 2020…Biden also accused Trump of ‘stiff-arming our friends’ on the world stage and ‘threatening NATO,’ the decades-old multinational political and military alliance among 29 North American and European countries. Trump has long expressed skepticism toward NATO, complaining that too many of the pact’s other members have failed for years to meet agreed-upon defense spending targets and threatening to pull the U.S. out of the alliance. Prodded by the president, defense spending by NATO members has climbed since 2016, apparently placating some of Trump’s concerns.”

FOREIGN POLICY/JOE BIDEN/NORTH KOREA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Former Vice President Joe Biden on Monday [7-1-19] lambasted Donald Trump over recent foreign policy decisions, dismissing the president’s historic trip into North Korean territory over the weekend as a photo-op, while blaming Trump for the deterioration of relations with Iran. Over the weekend, Trump met with Kim Jong Un, the North Korean leader, for the third time in his presidency and became the first sitting American president to step foot in the isolated country. The meeting, which took place in the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea, was capped off by Trump’s stepping onto the North Korean side of the line in a made-for-TV moment that Democrats immediately denounced as a photo-op, despite both sides agreeing to restart nuclear talks. The New York Times reported afterward that the administration is considering agreeing to a ‘freeze’ of North Korea’s nuclear weapons arsenal as opposed to a more comprehensive denuclearization pact, a notion rejected by national security adviser John Bolton, who was absent from Sunday’s summit.

CENTRAL AMERICA/ELECTION/FOREIGN POLICY/HISPANICS/IMMIGRATION/JOE BIDEN/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Former Vice President Joe Biden criticized President Trump’s ‘racist invective’ and called for a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, and a new foreign policy direction in Latin America and the Caribbean as part of his presidential campaign’s first glimpse of his immigration policy. Biden’s announcement, which appeared Monday [6-24-19] in a Miami Herald op-ed, was as much a broad outline of his immigration and foreign policy ideas as it was a critique of Trump administration policies…The op-ed comes just days after Hispanic leaders and grassroots groups criticized Biden for skipping a National Association of Latino Elected Officials conference in Miami and for saying relatively little about issues of specific importance to Latino voters. The op-ed drops just two days before the Democratic presidential candidates square off in Miami for their first debate. In a nod to South Florida’s politically active Latin American and Caribbean communities, Biden also took Trump to task for ending Temporary Protective Status of immigrants, many of whom hail from Nicaragua, Haiti and El Salvador and who have large communities in Florida.”

ELECTION/JOE BIDEN/POLLS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “A poll released hours before Donald Trump launches his 2020 reelection bid in Florida shows the president trailing Democratic White House hopefuls Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders in the nation’s largest swing state. The former vice president leads Trump among Florida voters by 50 percent to 41 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll published Tuesday ahead of the president’s campaign kickoff rally at Orlando’s Amway Center. Trump also trails the Vermont senator by a 6-point margin, 48 percent to 42 percent, while head-to-head match-ups pitting the president against other top-polling Democratic rivals are ‘too close to call,’ according to the survey…Trump has deeply personal ties to Florida, his second home state — capturing its 29 electoral votes in the 2016 presidential election and establishing his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach as the ‘Southern White House’ since assuming office. He often retreats there on weekends to cavort with members of his private club and to play rounds of golf with celebrities, confidants and government officials.”
