    local elections have zero impact on national elections....pretty much every presidential election after the mid-terms prove that.

    and then theres this dose of reality
    Trump at 36 percent approval among African-Americans, new poll finds

    "We’re a nation that believes in redemption," the president said, noting Americans with criminal backgrounds are unemployed at rates up to five times the national average, which was around 3.8 percent earlier this year. "You're gonna have an incredible future."

    Thousands of ex-prisoners to reunite with their families this month as part of First Step Act


    More than 2,200 federal inmates are returning to their families this month from behind bars under the bipartisan prison reform bill President Trump signed into law last year, according to policy experts and prisoner advocates involved in the effort.

    This month will see the largest group to be freed so far under a clause in the First Step Act that reduces sentences due to "earned good time." In addition to family reunification, the formerly incarcerated citizens, 90 percent of whom have been African-American, hope to get employment opportunities touted by Trump last month at the White House as part of the "Second Chance" hiring program.​

    I am late to this "justify Trump" fest and for very good reason.

    Is there really any need to evaluate what Trump is or isnt at this point. "Conservatives" like him and the remaining 70 percent (yes I chose my very own percentage points with a tolerance of 1 percent only) will be more than happy to vote him out.
    We already know why Trump is there. We already know he cant hire good people. We already know he cant lead. We already know he is being directed by outside sources. He has failed. Next.

    More evidence he needs an intervention. :devil:

    The mention of the social media summit and the invite list is pretty interesting:

    A bevy of far-right internet personalities has claimed in recent days to have received invitations to the White House’s “Social Media Summit” on Thursday, further blurring the line between the mainstream Republican Party and fringe figures that cater to its farthest edges.

    One of the people who claims they’ve been invited to the event has published anti-Semitic cartoons. Another has promoted the bizarre and wide-ranging QAnon conspiracy theory. A third is a celebrated meme-r whose creations have been tweeted by President Trump.

    The White House does not seem eager to confirm the invitees.

    Declining to confirm an actual invite list, White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere said in an email, “This event will bring together digital leaders for a robust conversation on the opportunities and challenges of today’s online environment.”

    A summit of hate at the White House. It is worth emphasizing that Trump, to protest perceived bias in Big Tech, has gathered the most controversial and extreme purveyors of conservative media bias to propose a solution. It just figures that these are the people he'd be drawn to.

    This is just politics. Trump couldn't care less about truth in media. The more slanted in his favor, the better.

    I know I will throw a party no matter how Trump is removed from office. I voted for two fine republicans, Romney and McCain. This man is a disgrace to our country and I will not shed a tear or be sad at all no matter how he is removed from office.

    I'm left a little uncertain about your feelings toward our President.
