Listen: President Trump, Donald Trump, John Mccain discussed on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
"All right valley Belgian for Lonzo Donald tonight, as we await the Muller report one of the people who wrote the rules for the special counsel. Neil. Cocktail will join me to discuss why those rules exist, and why Donald Trump as hard as he tries can't talk or squirm his way out of the band. We have a democratic presidential candidate tonight. I'll talk policy and politics with former HUD secretary and mayor of San Antonio Houlihan Costra, plus a look at why so many of President Trump's policies are going down to defeat in the nation's court, but we begin tonight with an increasingly unfocused president picking fights while failing to keep his promises we saw that in Ohio today, the president flew in for what was in many ways. And unofficial twenty twenty campaign event. The president, of course, one Ohio after promising to bring back manufacturing jobs today. He's spoke at the country's last factory that makes tanks for the army in Lima, Ohio. The factory had been on the decline, but it's now growing as a result of the Trump. Administration's increase in the military budget. When you better love me. I kept this place open. He said, we're closing. And I said, no, we're not. But it only took a few minutes for the president to go off the rails in distract from his own message by launching an unprompted attack on a deceased war hero. They asked me about a man named John McCain. And if you want to tell you about should I or not, so I have to be honest. I've never liked him much hasn't been for me. I've really probably never will. I gave them the kind of funeral that he wanted which has president. I had to approve. I don't care about this. I didn't get thank you. That's okay. We sent him on the way. But I wasn't a fan of John McCain. I didn't get thank you. But that's okay. The president dedicated almost five minutes of his speech to attacking John McCain. It was the president's feuds that seemed to be on his mind. The most today not as ecconomic promises he did manage to squeak out a few lines about the economy. It's all about manufacturing. And we're bringing it back in record numbers read some progress. That's why you see these numbers. Look at that chart. Look at it. You don't have to know. What's on it? What difference? Look it a lot. You don't have to know what the hell is on it. All you know, is that's a good line. Wow. I'd like to know what that's about because we're not bringing manufacturing jobs back in record numbers manufacturing jobs, have increased slightly not necessarily due to Trump's policies, but voters in Ohio may not feeling like the president kept his promise a poll from morning consoles shows the Donald Trump's net approval rating in Ohio has fallen by nineteen points since he took office in January two thousand seventeen that might be due to the fact that some manufacturing jobs are still leaving high. Oh, Lordstown just two hundred miles away from where the president spoke a General Motors plant is shutting down this month leaving about sixteen hundred workers without jobs and the future of the plant uncertain GM CEO cited the Trump tariffs which have cost the company about a billion dollars as a reason for the closure. The president seemed to recognize that closing as a threat to his core. Support he spent the week tweeting demands for the plant to reopen today said this about why he wa. Wanted that plant to reopen. Get the discussions going. Get it open Lordstown too great area. I guess I like it because I wasn't so big. They're meanwhile, in Washington, the Federal Reserve chairman gave an economic forecasts that was much less optimistic than what the president was saying. And what the White House said yesterday. Data arriving since September suggest that growth is slowing somewhat. More than expected.."
