Donald Trump news – President says he's 'already winning many states' as Florida lines up for early voting

FLORIDA voters have begun to line up outside polling places on the first day of the early voting.

30 million Americans have already cast their ballots in November's presidential election.

It comes as Trump tweeted earlier today that he is "already winning many states" but that it is "not reported".

Meanwhile, Trump called coronavirus expert Anthony Fauci a "disaster" earlier today as virus cases surge throughout the country.

During a call with campaigners at his signature hotel in Las Vegas, Trump said: "Fauci is a disaster. If I listened to him, wed have 500,000 deaths.

"People are saying, 'Whatever. Just leave us alone.' They're tired of it. People are tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots."

“Fauci is a nice guy. He's been here for 500 years,” Trump added.

    Trump went on to say that “all” CNN host Chris Cuomo, who was diagnosed with coronavirus earlier this year, talks about is Covid.

    “I'm not sure he had it,” the president alleged. “Only time his ratings were up was when he had Covid.”

    Trump explained to the crowd of his supporters that he was also diagnosed with Covid – which some of his critics have also been doubtful about.

    “Well I had it and they say, 'You're not gonna catch it again,' and that's OK with me.”

    President Donald Trump called CNN “dumb bast**ds” during his campaign rally in Arizona on Monday.

    Trump claimed the news network is only covering the coronavirus pandemic to try to prevent Americans from voting in the election.

    “You turn on CNN that's all they cover,” Trump said. “Covid, Covid pandemic, Covid.”

    “They're trying to talk everybody out of voting. They're not buying it, CNN, you dumb bast**rds.”

    As of Monday, more than 8.3million Covid cases and over 224,000 virus-related deaths have been reported in the US.

    Those numbers far exceed other countries’ reported coronavirus numbers, with India coming in second with 7.5million reported cases and nearly 115,000 deaths.

    President Donald Trump said during a campaign rally in Arizona on Monday that his rival, Joe Biden, “should've been locked up weeks ago.”

    Trump told a crowd of his supporters in Prescott that Biden is lucky that William Barr Barr is the attorney general “because I know people that would have had him locked up five weeks ago.”

    “Bill Barr is a very nice man and a very fair man,” Trump said. “Just remember it, because I get angry too.”

    Earlier on Monday, House Republicans urged Barr to appoint a special counsel to investigate allegations stemming from a laptop that allegedly belongs to Hunter Biden.

    Lawmakers said they want Barr to look into claims that Biden “played a role in his son’s alleged lucrative business dealings in Ukraine and China.”

    When the Trump administration initially proposed its new rules in December for limiting access to the program, the US was enjoying record low unemployment and a strong economy.

    Although, since the start of coronavirus pandemic those numbers have since turned upside-down – as almost 25 million adults are currently claiming unemployment benefits and the jobless rate stood at 7.9 percent in September.

    Secretary Sonny Perdue said at the time that the changes were made “in order to restore the dignity of work to sizable segment of our population and be respectful of the taxpayers who fund the program.”

    A federal judge on Sunday struck down a Trump administration rule that would have reduced food stamp benefits for nearly 700,000 people, calling the blocking “arbitrary and capricious.”

    In her Sunday hearing, US District Court Chief Judge Beryl Howell wrote that implementing the change “radically and abruptly alters decades of regulatory practice,” which would increase food insecurity for Americans.

    Howell added, “Whether USDA could, using a legally proper process, adequately explain how the Final Rule’s changes both comport with the statutory scheme and make sense is a question for another day. For now, the agency has not done so.”

    The ruling comes after a year-long effort from the Trump administration to trim the number of people who rely on food stamps – also known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP.

    Democrats have been left worried that the Biden campaign is in jeopardy after the Hunter Biden bombshell was dropped.

    The New York Post uncovered several emails and a “smoking crack during a sex act” video, amid scrutiny over Hunter's job at oil and gas giant Burisma.

    The emails appear to show that VP Biden met with Burisma exec Vadym Pozharskyi while the Ukrainian was in the US, reports the Post.

    A spokesperson for Joe Biden denied any such meeting in a statement on Wednesday.

    On Sunday, Biden appeared to walk away as a reporter asked him about the FBI after the agency seized his son Hunter's laptop.

    The emails come from a trove of files found on a damaged MacBook Pro, which was reportedly dropped off at a repair shop in Biden's home state of Delaware. Among the files is reportedly a 12-minute video of Hunter engaging in a sex act with an unidentified woman, according to The Post.

    Donald Trump has bragged that he has “never felt stronger” about beating Joe Biden and said that Hunter's laptop scandal is “devastating.”

    Directing the message at New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, the president insisted that his team is doing a “fantastic job.”

    Trump wrote: “There has never been a time in either of my two Campaigns when I felt we had a stronger chance of winning than we do right now. Early voting reports look far stronger than originally anticipated. Every RALLY is BOFFO. @MarkMeadows & team are doing a fantastic job….

    “….There has never been more enthusiasm or spirit, by everyone. Great fun, and so good for our Country. Already winning many states, but not reported. Biden put the LID on again – raising money with promises. They finally caught him, COLD, and he knows it. Laptop is devastating!”

    President Donald Trump said the US would “be in a massive depression” if he listened to experts – as doctors now warn the country is heading into its “darkest hour.”

    Speaking at a campaign rally in Nevada on Sunday, Trump said the US would be in a much different place if he “totally” took advice from scientists on coronavirus lockdowns.

    Trump claimed that if his Democratic rival Joe Biden is elected, Americans would see another Great Depression.

    “He’s gonna lock down. This guy wants to lock down,” Trump said of Biden, referencing coronavirus lockdowns the United States saw earlier this year.

    “He’ll listen to the scientists. If I listened totally to the scientists, we would right now have a country that would be in a massive depression.”

    DrAnthony Fauci has revealed his reaction to the moment he learned that Donald Trump had Covid and said he was “absolutely not surprised” by the diagnosis.

    The coronavirus expert made the comments on Sunday night's CBS “60 Minutes,” just weeks after the president revealed he was battling Covid.

    Fauci said “oh my goodness,” when he saw the lack of masks and social distancing during a “superspreader event” at the White House.

    The doctor called the event “a completely precarious situation.”

    “Nothing good can come out of that,” Fauci said. “That's got to be a problem — and then sure enough it turned out to be a super spreader event.”
