Feds move to correct Obama's transgender healthcare policies
WASHINGTON (May 24, 2019) — The Trump administration proposed Friday to roll back Obama-era discrimination policies for transgender people in health care.
A conservative political scientist is impressed with President Trump's early reelection fundraising efforts that are dwarfing those of the field of Democratic presidential challengers.
President Donald Trump's reelection campaign reports that it raised more than $30 million in the first quarter of 2019, edging out his top two Democratic rivals combined. This haul, according to The Associated Press, gives Trump $40.8 million cash in hand – an unprecedented war chest for an incumbent president this early in a campaign. According to the campaign reports, nearly 99 percent of the donations were of $200 dollars or less, with an average donation of $34.26.
Dr. Charles W. Dunn says these numbers play out in several ways. First, says the professor emeritus of government at Clemson University, it sends a signal to Republicans like former Massachusetts Governor William Weld, who announced this week that he plans to seek the GOP presidential nomination.
"It would be foolish for them to undertake a primary challenge to Donald Trump," Dunn tells OneNewsNow, "so this news pretty well secures the safety of Donald Trump's re-nomination."
The political scientist also says the numbers of small donations is a sign that grassroots America likes the president.
"The amount of money that Trump has raised says that he has much more popularity than the press gives him credit for," he explains. "We're beginning to see some initial reporting of surveys that suggest Trump is doing better than what we've expected. Well, this kind of fundraising [is] going to encourage more rank-and-file conservatives to give."
Democrats, on the other hand, are showing early signs of money trouble as donors "sit on the sidelines" to see how the long drawn out primary battle unfolds. AP says the approximately $70 million raised collectively by Democratic candidates since January "pales in comparison" to the $30 million raised by Trump.
