The 11 House Dems from Trump districts who support assault weapons ban Two mass shootings last weekend in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio that left 31 people dead have revamped debate about gun control measures in Congress.While Democrats widely agree on several reforms, including implementing universal background checks and capping the size of magazines, the party remains divided on the viability of banning assault rifles, the types of weapons that have been used in several high-profile mass shootings, including the two last week. The opposition largely comes from moderate Democrats in swing district with constituents who may be uneasy banning specific weapons, but who may voice support for other measures to curtail gun violence.

We live in interesting times. Our nation is deeply divided. People cannot talk politics at family dinners or friendly get-togethers. Opinions are fixed; relationships are too important to risk a conversation. However, over the next 15 months, we must engage each other, as 2020 is the most important election in modern times.

If the election were decided today, on the economy, trade or immigration, large numbers of Americans would likely vote to re-elect Donald Trump. After all, Trump has an incumbency advantage; the political landscape assures him of winning particular states without a campaign. However, recent events have created doubt in places like Texas, and the Democratic Party has a real opportunity to unseat the controversial president.

They believe he is the kind of moderate Democrat who can unseat the Republican congresswoman, Claudia Tenney, an unabashed supporter of President Trump whose fiery rhetoric has become both a lightning rod locally and a late-night television punch line nationally.

Today, the candidate with the best chance to beat Donald Trump is... well... Donald Trump. The president has a solid base of supporters - as candidate Trump once famously said, "I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose any voters." So far, this comment has proved prophetic. Over the past three years, Trump's mouth has been the major news item of the day but has had no effect on his base.

Long before his presidential run, Trump's mouth caused controversy. He perpetuated the so-called 'birther movement,' suggesting President Obama wasn't a United States citizen. In 2015, Trump announced his candidacy, calling Mexican immigrants criminals and rapists. In 2017, after a deadly 'unite the right' rally in Charlottesville, Va., Trump claimed there were 'very fine people on both sides.' In 2018, he called Haiti a 'shithole country' and expressed his desire for more immigrants from countries like Norway.

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz teased his potential 2020 presidential run with a "pox on both your houses" approach to Democrats and Republicans, hoping to seize on general antipathy toward the nation's two-party system.

July and August 2019 have been unusually active months for the president's offensive rhetoric. In mid-July, he infamously invited four freshman democratic congresswomen (three of whom were born in America) to go back to the 'crime infested places' they came from. Later, the president celebrated 'victory' as Robert Mueller testified that Russians were prepared to interfere with the 2020 election. Then Trump lashed out at Congressman Elijah Cummings, calling Cummings' Baltimore district a 'disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.'

At the end of July and in the first week of August, the nation was stunned by three mass shootings. The president could have assured citizens that he would work to keep us safe. Instead of condemning high capacity magazines for assault rifles, he blamed video games, mental illness, and the internet. While visiting shooting victims, he spoke against his political opponents, praised crowd sizes, and commended citizens' adulation of their president.

From Trump’s Fat To ‘I’m A Mom’: Crazy Reasons Democrats Think They Can Beat Trump

From Trump’s Fat To ‘I’m A Mom’: Crazy Reasons Democrats Think They Can Beat Trump Some Democratic presidential candidates are coming up with some odd reasons they think they are the right person to take on Donald Trump next year. While most candidates in the race are running on platforms to give America “free everything” while calling Trump and his supporters racist, these candidates have additional arguments. Andrew Yang: I’ll Beat Trump Because Trump Is Too Fat The tech entrepreneur took shots at Trump’s weight Thursday at an Everytown For Gun Safety event in Iowa, as reported by The Atlantic.

For years, Democrats of all stripes were told to swallow centrism because it was the only path to victory. But that strategy decisively failed — the safest pair of hands the Democrats could imagine was defeated by a radical insurgent It’s a move to unseat Trump from the outside, much as he ascended.

Democrats are now preparing to assume control of the House. This offers many possibilities for oversight and investigation. For one, the House Ways and Means Committee has the right to inspect the president’s tax returns

Donald Trump has serious issues. His offensive comments combined with changing demographics and the increasing popularity of core Democratic issues, make a Democratic victory in 2020 a possibility, but far from a certainty.

The president seems incapable of change, yet Democrats appear unable to unite behind a political philosophy, let alone a particular candidate. Are Democrats progressive or moderate? The answer, of course, is 'yes' - and there lies the problem. Progressive solutions include 'Medicare for all,' free tuition, college debt cancellation, tax cuts for the middle class, severe restrictions on gun ownership, even an annual $12,000 stipend for all Americans. More moderate positions include health care choice, equal access to education, a fair path to citizenship, and deference to climate science rather than science fiction.

Many argue if the Democrats wish to win in 2020, they must nominate a candidate who can debate, toe to toe, with Donald Trump. Few remember that Hillary Clinton won every debate. Yet, she still lost the election. Why?

Judge allows Trump to appeal Democrats' emoluments lawsuit

Judge allows Trump to appeal Democrats' emoluments lawsuit President Trump can appeal a lawsuit from more than 200 congressional Democrats that seeks to prevent his companies from taking payments from foreign states, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.District Judge Emmet Sullivan had previously denied a motion to allow the appeals court to review his prior rulings, but a federal appeals court in July ruled that Sullivan's finding was in error.Sullivan noted in his ruling that such mid-case appeals are justified in cases involving "substantial ground for difference of opinion," which the appeals court suggested there was. Lawyers for Trump have argued the plaintiffs in the case lack legal standing to sue him.

I'm assuming Trump will be the Republican nominee in 2020. That's two years away and a lot can happen in that time, but for now that looks to be the most If that's indeed the case, then the only hope Democrats have for 2020 is a candidate who can out- Trump Trump . They need a candidate that

Democrats lead that charge with 40 percent saying so. “That may just be wishful thinking,” says Republican pollster Daron Shaw, who runs the Fox News Poll along with Democrat Chris Anderson. “The party distribution among those doubting Trump is heavily skewed towards the Democrats

Clinton was a flawed candidate, viewed as dishonest, politically corrupt, snobbish, someone willing to cheat to win. Early on, party leaders foolishly anointed her their candidate. When Bernie Sanders mounted a serious challenge, Clinton began to unravel. In contrast, Trump's message was blunt and appealed to a voting segment (blue collar white men) that felt neglected by the Democrats.

The 2020 election is already different. Twenty-plus candidates seek the nomination; no one has been pre-anointed. However, there is a disturbing disparity of political philosophy. To win in 2020, Democrats must avoid petty squabbles and choose a sensible path, one that inspires the base and is embraced by independents and moderates.

Here are some suggestions:

Democrats must strike a balance between free trade and fair trade. Trump has struck a nerve on trade, claiming imbalance and unfair rules cost workers' jobs. Unless Democrats espouse a clear policy on trade that protects American workers, they will lose the election.

Democrats must dispel the notion they are for open borders and lawlessness. Trump has brilliantly exploited white worker insecurities about immigrants and minorities being provided some type of advantage in securing blue-collar jobs. Democrats need to proffer an immigration policy that provides secure borders, a fair path to citizenship, and reassurance to American workers that electing a Democrat will not cost them their jobs.

With President Trump in the White House, the Democrats have become devoted to blind resistance, flipping on issues they once advocated for simply because he shares their beliefs. "If Trump supports something, then we hate it" has become the governing principle of much of the party's rank-and-file.

Democrats must be the party of health care as contrasted from the one seeking to take it away. They must support tax and wage fairness over greed and the one percent, equal access to higher education without suggesting it should be free. They must support diversity over white supremacy, a global 21st century economy over isolation and protectionism, and safety over weapons of mass destruction.

Instead of keeping his promise to 'drain the swamp,' many think Donald Trump has expanded it. Democrats must highlight and hammer at each of Trump's failed promises. As the grandfather of eight, I have an easy litmus test for any president, regardless of his or her party: Can I tell my grandchildren to look to our president with pride and respect? Today, sadly, I cannot. What will you tell your children or grandchildren?
