Trump America’s Champion
Clive, Iowa — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump America’s Champion, spoke during a campaign rally, Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2016, in Clive, Iowa. A war of words over Donald Trump’s ‘deplorables’ is intensifying as Republicans and Democrats fight to score political points over Hillary Clinton’s charge, that millions of the New York billionaire’s supporters are racist, sexist and homophobic. Trump cares and respects his supporters, and doesn’t take it lightly when, despicable things are said about them.
Monday, Trump Halts Rally To Seek Medical Assistance For Supporter “It is about 100 degrees in here …”
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump halted a rally in North Carolina on Monday evening, to seek medical attention for a supporter who was reportedly experiencing a medical emergency.
Trump was delivering remarks about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in Asheville, when he noticed one of his supporters, an unnamed woman, had fallen ill.
The GOP nominee immediately paused the rally and called for a doctor.
“Could we have a doctor please?” he said. “A doctor. A doctor please.”
Trump cited the temperature inside of the city’s U.S. Cellular Center as a possible reason for the woman suddenly falling ill.
“It is about 100 degrees in here folks, so. Thank you so much,” he said. “We love our supporters, right?”
Trump also called for water and a round of applause for the woman: “Let’s give her a hand. Get some water please? Water please.”
The billionaire New Yorker then briefly left the stage to personally greet the woman.
The entire exchange was captured on video, provided by ABC affiliate KNXV in Phoenix, Ariz.
After members of his staff had taken care of her, Trump returned to the podium.
“That’s a great supporter, an unbelievable person, been here for a long time, and I just want to thank you,” Trump said. “Whether it was a supporter or not we’re going to take care of her. It is pretty hot in here folks.”
Is there any doubt we call Trump America’s Champion?
The incident comes a day after Hillary Clinton suffered some sort of medical emergency and had to be carried into her van during a 9/11 memorial service , in lower Manhattan on Sunday, on the fifteenth anniversary of the terror attacks that left nearly three thousand Americans dead in the area.
The Clinton campaign initially attributed the candidate’s health scare to “overheating;” however, Clinton’s doctor later revealed she was diagnosed with pneumonia last Friday.
Trump commented on Clinton’s latest clear health issue on Monday, telling Fox & Friends, “I hope she gets well soon.”
DES MOINES, Iowa, ” Donald Trump is rolling out proposals Tuesday to make child care more affordable, including a plan to guarantee new mothers six weeks of paid maternity leave and create new dependent-care savings accounts.
Trump will unveil the plans in a speech in a Philadelphia suburb, a key area in a vital swing state as Trump tries to build his appeal with more moderate, independent voters ” especially women. Child care is one of the biggest expenses many American families face, surpassing the cost of college and even housing in many states. And in promising paid maternity leave, Trump is sharply breaking with conservative orthodoxy that the government not mandate what benefits companies must give workers.
Trump had said little about child care until his daughter, Ivanka, surprised many at the Republican National Convention in July, by promising it will be a centerpiece of a Trump administration. During a rally in Des Moines Tuesday afternoon, Trump credited Ivanka Trump for his action on the issue. “She is the one who has pushed for it so hard: ‘Daddy, Daddy we have to do this.’ She’s very smart, and she’s right,” the candidate said.
Because Trump’s proposal is a tax deduction rather than credit, its greatest benefits would go to affluent households with higher tax bills.
The timing and location of the announcement are no coincidence. Pennsylvania is a state Democrats have won since 1992, but Trump hopes to flip to win the White House in November. And Trump has tried to soften his image among college-educated women.
Trump would limit the tax deduction to individuals earning $250,000 or less, or $500,000 or less if filing jointly. Lower-income earners would receive child-care spending rebates through the existing Earned Income Tax Credit.
Trump will also lay out plans to create “Dependent Care Savings Accounts”, that would allow families to set aside money to look after children or elderly parents. The accounts would allow tax-deductible contributions and tax-free appreciation, according to the campaign. It could be used to pay for child care, after-school programs and school tuition. To help lower-income parents, the government would match half of the first $1,000 deposited per year.
For elderly dependents, the accounts could be used to help pay for services including in-home nursing and long-term care.
Trump is also expected to propose incentives for employers to provide child-care options at work. He has previously touted similar programs at his hotels and golf clubs.
Trump aides did not address how much the proposals would cost, but stressed that, when combined with other policies including Trump’s tax plan, it would be cost neutral.
Trump deserves credit. “You haven’t heard the past few Republican nominees talk about child care a lot.”
Donald Trump is a man of the people, he loves America and Americans. He loves his supporters, and will defend them, when attacked. He stopped his speech to help a supporter at his rally. Trump America’s Champion!
