The Democrats hate President Donald Trump so much that they will do anything out of desperation to keep him from being re-elected in 2020 and in doing so, they continue to openly display their hypocritical double standards.
When Barack Hussein Obama announced he was running for the White House, he refused to provide the REQUIRED documentation proving he was eligible to run for the highest office in the land. When others, including former President Bill Clinton challenged Obama on his eligibility and lack of documentation, most Democrats came to Obama’s defense and said it wasn’t necessary. I recall hearing one high ranking Democrat, who still holds political office and a position of power in Washington DC, say that since Obama said he was born in Hawaii and that he was eligible to run, that he didn’t need to prove it.
Eight years later, presidential candidate Donald Trump did provide the required documentation proving he was eligible to run for the presidency. He satisfied every legal requirement on the books, both at the federal and state levels.
However, that is not sufficient for Democrats. They claim that Trump is required to make public his tax returns and financial records for at least the past 10 years. Folks, there is NO legal requirement, no law and nothing in the US Constitution that requires any candidate to make his or her tax returns public nor his or her financial records.
So, Democrats in California decided to make it a law in order to appear on the 2020 ballot. Here’s the kicker – California has the most Electoral College votes with 55 and if they could prevent Trump from appearing on the ballot, that would automatically give those 55 votes to the Democrat running against him. Considering a candidate needs to garner 270 Electoral College votes to win the White House, California’s block of 55 makes a huge difference.
You have to realize that California is run by a socialist governor and both branches of the state government are also controlled by socialist Democrats. The last time California saw their 55 Electoral College votes go for a Republican was in 1988 when they went to George H.W. Bush.
California’s Democrats passed a bill and it was signed into law requiring any presidential candidate to release the last ten years of tax returns or that person would not be allowed to be on the ballot. In referring to the California law, Gov. Gavin Newsom stated:
“These are extraordinary times and states have a legal and moral duty to do everything in their power to ensure leaders seeking the highest offices meet minimal standards, and to restore public confidence.”
“The disclosure required by this bill will shed light on conflicts of interest, self-dealing, or influence from domestic and foreign business interest.”
President Trump challenged the legality of the California law and on Thursday of last week, District Judge Morrison England Jr. issued a temporary injunction blocking the California law from being enforced. England Jr. stated that he would issue a formal ruling by October 1. Most sources say that he will repeal the California law.
This is a huge political victory for Trump and if England Jr. rules as expected, that means that Trump will be on the 2020 ballot in California. If that happens, you can expect a concerted effort by California Democrats to get as many illegal aliens to vote illegally, just like they did in 2016!
