By Dan Gartland, Associated Press”You have to have empathy for what they’re feeling and then you can go in and you can understand it.”
– Joe Scarborough, former Republican congressman and CNN contributor”If I was President Trump, I would just be looking for the perfect people.
I would have a big, fat target on my back.
If I were a woman and I had an issue with Donald Trump, then I would be just like him, and I would start picking out the perfect, perfect, horrible, horrible people to try to get rid of.”
– Scarborough, CNN, Oct. 5, 2020″You know what, we are going to do this in America.
And we’re going to have an election where we can have a vote on the constitution, on the First Amendment, on our country and on the future of our country.
That is our right.
And the American people will have the chance to weigh in.
We’ll have a voice, but we’ll have to listen to them.”
– President Trump at the inauguration, Jan. 20, 2021The Trump administration is working to develop a national election system that could help people with disabilities vote in a presidential election, a senior White House official told the Associated Press.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal administration deliberations.
The effort, called the “Voter Empathy” initiative, would seek to provide a centralized mechanism for voters who have trouble with online voting, the official said.
The Trump White House is also exploring ways to increase the number of people eligible to vote by eliminating barriers to voting, including a federal law that prevents people with criminal records from voting, and a voter ID law.
The push to increase access to voting comes as the administration faces growing criticism over its handling of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
In late January, the administration announced it would take a second look at the case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, saying he had failed to disclose payments to former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych from a pro-Russian political party, according to The Washington Post.
Manafort was sentenced last month to six years in prison on fraud and money laundering charges, while his son-in-law, Rick Gates, pleaded guilty in May to one count of conspiracy and one count each of money laundering, wire fraud and conspiracy to launder money.
The White House said the payments Gates made to Yanukovych in exchange for his support were unrelated to the investigation.
