Trump just posted a campaign video of last night's event.

Last edited Fri Jul 5, 2019, 01:21 PM - Edit history (2)

Not going to link his twitter, but he just posted a campaign video they created using last night's event.

That's illegal. Between the RNC only giving out tickets to Trump supporters and using a taxpayer funded event to create a campaign video, him and the GOP have broken laws yet again.

And nothing will be done about it.

30. The OP said 'nothing would be done' ... that's what I was responding to ...

But I think we'll at least get some sternly-worded letters.

It's great that some think something will actually 'come of them'.

Personally I have my doubts ... but it's better than nothing, as the OP suggested would be the case.

31. The letters are in addition to other actions. It appears as if a fake prezident can be in fact

 

above the law with accomplices while he/she is in office. That is a problem.

3. He needs to be billed for the whole event

Of course, we all know a Trump never pays his debts, but he should be billed for staging a campaign ad.

10. Republicans are too cowardly or corrupt to say a word, with exception of Amash

Some sit silent because they are afraid and others are corrupt and therefor complicit. They are now the party of liars, cheats and cowards.

19. He's a christian who was born in Michigan

And he is literally the only republican in Washington right now with a spine.

It's unclear to me what someone's religion or their parents ethnicity has to do with anything.

22. The law is not as clear as you make it out to be.

The line between official and political presidential events is very murky, and always invites controversy for incumbents.

There is nothing I can think of that would make it illegal for a president to use footage from official events as part of campaign ads.

In 2004 when we were making convention film for President Bush, we were explicitly prohibited from using official White House shot video. Now Trump WH is not only using video but paying for full production. This is probably $500,000 of your tax dollars.
