Veterans day did not go well for TrumpPosted by Josh Taylor / November 12, 2019
President Donald Trump got booed during his veterans day speech in New York. The group of protestors who booed him also chanted, “Lock him up!”
President Trump attended a UFC event a little over a week ago, only to be met with boos and jeers. A few cheered, but the majority were not as kind, and people tweeted out the booing. According to a political scientist, this is potentially bad news for Trump––this should be Trump’s crowd, so this might be a sign that Trump’s base is turning on him.
Last month, he was booed at the World Series, the height of American sports. And to make matters worse, parts of the crowd also turned his own chant against him, shouting “lock him up!” Watching the video, it’s clear he’s muttering under his breath and trying not to storm out of there.
The founder of a group for Iraq and Afghanistan War veterans also criticized Trump’s son, Donald Jr. Paul Rieckhoff told Don Jr. to join the military if he really wanted to understand what sacrifice is all about.
The most recent polls suggest that support for Trump’s impeachment is rising. Fifty-five percent of voters now approve of the investigation, showing a slow but steady increase.
Another recent poll––taken before Trump’s disastrous Turkey incident––shows that approval of the impeachment investigations into him is on the rise. Fifty-four percent of Americans approve of the investigation, with only 44% disapproving of the investigations. Worse for Trump, 58% of respondents believe that Trump definitely or probably did something that constitutes “grounds for impeachment.” Most of the increase comes from moderate or independent-leaning Democrats, but some is coming from Republicans.
