Obama: Trump "unfit" to serve

Obama: Trump Obama: Trump "unfit" to serve
Lance Thomas | 04 August, 2016, 05:17

Others, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Ryan, have broken with the nominee on individual issues but continue to back his candidacy.

The president said his opposition to Trump is about more than policy differences. Following the remarks, the presidential candidate told the New York Times, "I'd like to hear his wife say something".

Trump's statement comes amid intense fallout over his criticism of the family of the late Capt. Humayun Khan, a U.S. Army soldier who died in Iraq in 2004.

In an interview with The New York Times, Whitman said it was time "to put country first before party".

Top Republican donor and fundraiser Meg Whitman has endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton for president, saying she can not support a candidate who has "exploited anger, grievance, xenophobia and racial division". For me, it is not enough to simply denounce his comments: "He is unfit to serve our party and can not lead this country".

He says that when Trump appears at an event Wednesday afternoon, he'll be focused on Clinton. Winning some of those voters could offset expected losses among the white working class voters drawn to Trump's anti-trade, anti-illegal immigration message, Clinton aides say.

Even Trump's longtime ally, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, said on Tuesday it was inappropriate to criticize the Khan family.

Obama said he differed with GOP nominees John McCain in 2008 and Mitt Romney in 2012, but "never thought that they couldn't do the job". Let's see how she cleans this mess up in the coming days.

The Trump campaign responded by going after the Democratic nominee as well as the President.

That's a significantly tighter gap than in June, when Trump's total was $51 million to Clinton's $69 million.

"At the end of the day, it's going to come down to Clinton and Trump", Fernandez said. "She wants to play the tough one".

Trump's week has been dominated by his criticism of Muslim parents whose son was killed in the Iraq War and his refusal to endorse House Speaker Paul Ryan and Sen. On Monday, for instance, Trump he tweeted words of thanks to Paul Nehlen, who is challenging House Speaker Paul Ryan in the Republican primary in his Wisconsin House district this month. "He's irremediable", said Republican strategist Rick Tyler, who previously worked for Trump adversary Texas Sen. "And we are confident in a victory next week regardless". The Khans took the stage during the DNC last week to talk about their son's sacrifice for the country.

The RNC can't force Trump out of the race - he would have to voluntarily drop out.

It has been relayed to Trump hat he is losing what tenuous support he has in the party establishment, and that already skeptical donors are heading for the exits or telling the senior team can't count on serious progress when he looks so toxic. Trump's unpredictability and freewheeling messaging are driving the exploration, according to ABC.

Trump backers attending the OH rally dismissed the issue, underscoring how the businessman was able to survive numerous such firestorms in the GOP primaries. "And I'm in control of doing the things that he wants me to do in the campaign". His supporters dismissed the matter. Kelly Ayotte as weak. He also questioned whether Trump had ever read the Constitution.

The inner tension comes as Priebus and handful of high-profile Trump allies consider whether to confront the candidate directly to encourage a new approach following a series of startling stances and statements. "If we could get along with Russian Federation, wouldn't that be a good thing, instead of a bad thing?"
