In the 2016 presidential election, Conway helped Trump to victory as campaign manager. After taking office, she became an advisor to the president and one of his most determined defenders. She rose to prominence abroad in early 2017 when she attempted to explain untrue government allegations about “alternative facts.” A day before the start of the party convention on Sunday, she surprisingly announced her withdrawal from the White House at the end of the month to care for her four children.

For Conway, White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany signed the photo of a compassionate president who cares about them on Wednesday. She shared how Trump called her after breast surgery before her time as a spokeswoman to learn more about her well-being. “The decision to have a preventive mastectomy was the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make,” said McEnany. “But supporting President Trump, who will protect my daughter and our children’s future, has been the easiest.”

Lara Trump calls her father-in-law a passionate country father

Lara Trump portrayed her father-in-law as a passionate country father in the presidential family dance at the Republican party conference. “He’s a fighter and will never stop fighting for America.” In an engaging speech, the 37-year-old former television producer shared how she came to New York from a humble background in North Carolina.

She never imagined she would be on the Republican party stage, said the wife of President’s son Eric Trump. But her parents taught her that anything in America can be achieved with hard work and determination.

That is America First. That is the Trump Doctrine.”

Grenell said, “As a US Ambassador to Germany, I was in the front row of Donald Trump’s America First Foreign Policy. I wish every American could see President Trump negotiating on their behalf.” He witnessed Trump “bewitching” Chancellor Angela Merkel, while at the same time urging Germany to meet its NATO defense spending obligations.

“In four years, Donald Trump has not started new wars,” said the former acting US intelligence coordinator. Trump acknowledged that America’s endless wars were a “catastrophe.” He brought soldiers home, rebuilt the army, and signed peace agreements that made Americans safer. “The elites in Washington want you to see this kind of foreign policy as immoral. That’s why they call it nationalistic,” Grenell said. These elites think they insult Trump. “As if the US president shouldn’t base foreign policy on America’s national interests.”

Civil rights activist: Trump did more for blacks than Biden

Civil rights activist Clarence Henderson praised US President Donald Trump’s commitment to African Americans at the Republican Party conference. “These performances show that Donald Trump really cares about the lives of blacks,” Henderson said Wednesday evening (local time) during the largely virtual event. “He’s done more for black Americans in four years than Joe Biden in 50.” Biden – the Democratic presidential candidate – had the guts to say anyone who didn’t vote for him wasn’t black. “To that I say, if you vote for Biden, you don’t know the story.”

Former football pro Jack Brewer also defended Trump against allegations of racism. “I know what racism looks like,” said Brewer, who is a member of the Black Voices for Trump group. “In America he doesn’t look like President Trump. And I am sick of the way he is portrayed in the media and refuse to acknowledge what he has really done for the black community.”

Trump advertises, among other things, that unemployment among African Americans had fallen to an all-time low before the corona pandemic. He has also secured funding for historically black universities. His judicial reform resulted in the release of numerous black prisoners.

The senator said Biden, his second candidate Kamala Harris and their “radical allies” wanted to destroy American heroes in the security forces – “because the government can control us when there are no heroes to inspire us.” The theme of the third day of the Republican Congress was “Land of Heroes”.

Trump Son Eric: My Dad Brings Americans to Mars

President’s son Eric Trump has promised Americans that their countrymen will soon – driven by the American spirit – fly to Mars. He had “built the New York City skyline, built the Hoover Dam and – under my father’s direction – sent Americans to Mars,” Eric Trump told the Republican Congress. This American spirit will also “defeat the empty, repressive, and radical views of the far-left within 68 days,” Trump said. The election on November 3 was to be in 70 days, as one CNN reporter noted.

No one campaigned for the “silent majority” in the country before his father, Eric Trump said. Both Democratic and Republican politicians before Trump were “more concerned about how they will be received by the elites in Paris than about how Americans will provide for their families in Pittsburgh.” “My father will fight for you,” he said.

“I love you very much!” Eric Trump said to his father’s address. As a result, he was the first of the Trump children to speak to the president in person. “Daddy, let’s make Uncle Robert proud.” Donald Trump’s younger brother Robert, whom he called his best friend, died about ten days ago.

Allegations of nepotism against Biden at Republican party conference

At the Republican convention, allegations of nepotism were leveled against the Democratic presidential candidate, ex-Vice President Joe Biden. Former Florida Attorney Pam Bondi on Tuesday night criticized Biden’s son Hunter Biden for serving on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma. “Even though he had no experience with Ukraine or the energy sector, he got millions for doing nothing,” Bondi said. “He had a qualification that was important: he was the son of the man in charge of distributing US aid to Ukraine.”

US President Trump has accused Biden of protecting his son from the Ukrainian judiciary as vice president in the Barack Obama administration. Trump wanted to open an investigation in Ukraine. The conflict eventually led to impeachment lawsuits against Trump, which resulted in an acquittal in the Senate in February. Trump’s lawyers argued at the time that Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board of directors was a clear conflict of interest. At the time, Biden was in charge of US policy towards Ukraine.

Joe Biden rejects any wrongdoing. It is unknown how much money Hunter Biden received for his post. Bondi accused Joe Biden on Tuesday of “willful conduct”. “There are numerous press releases showing that other close relatives have benefited from Joe’s 47-year political career.” Bondi has not provided any evidence for this. Nor did she say which family members it should have been.

Minister: Biden is “prisoner of the radical left”

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron has called Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden a “prisoner of the radical left.” “You believe that your skin color should dictate your policy,” said the African American minister at the Republican conference Tuesday evening (local time). “If you don’t conform while exercising your God-given right to acquit and think, they will bring you down.”

Republicans, on the other hand, trusted that people would think for themselves and pursue the American dream as they saw fit, Cameron said. He criticized: “Joe Biden is a backward thinker in a world that yearns for forward-looking leadership.”

US Senator: Biden will “shed our blood and our wealth”

Republicans portrayed Donald Trump’s Democratic challenger Joe Biden as a belligerent during their party conference. Biden had “consistently called for more wars,” Senator Rand Paul said on his appearance. Biden voted for the war in Iraq, supporting “wars in Serbia, Syria, Libya”. “I’m afraid Biden will go to war again,” said Paul. “Biden will continue to waste our blood and wealth. President Trump will bring home our heroes.”

Biden voted by a majority in the US Senate in 2002 for then Republican President George W. Bush to use military force in Iraq, but a few years later described this as a mistake.

Paul was also a Republican candidate for the US presidency four years ago. In a debate at the time, he warned against entrusting control of nuclear weapons to Trump.

US Secretary of State Pompeo attacks China during the party conference

Contrary to longstanding tradition, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo became directly involved in the election campaign and promoted President Donald Trump’s re-election to the Republican Congress. The implementation of the “America First” program “has not made Trump popular in every foreign capital,” Pompeo said in the speech previously recorded in Jerusalem and aired Tuesday. “But it worked.”

In China, Trump has “lifted the curtain on the Chinese Communist Party’s predatory aggression,” said the US Secretary of State. Regarding the corona pandemic, Pompeo said, “The president has held China responsible for hiding the Chinese virus and allowing it to spread death and economic destruction in America and the world.” Under the Trump administration, NATO got stronger, Pompeo said. Commenting on the INF disarmament treaty with Moscow, which ended in 2019, he said, “America has left behind a damaging treaty so that our nation can now build missiles to deter Russian aggression.”

Pompeo’s video speech to the party congress drew strong criticism from the Democratic Party. Presidential candidate Joe Biden’s campaign leadership said Tuesday that the Secretary of State’s contribution to the Republican Convention was not only a misuse of tax money, but also undermined the vital work of the State Department.

Trump Daughter Tiffany: Media and Technology Companies Are Manipulating Us

President’s daughter Tiffany Trump told American citizens at the Republican party conference that they are being manipulated by the media and technology companies. “Rather than giving Americans the right to shape our own beliefs, this system of disinformation keeps people spiritually enslaved to the ideas they see fit,” Tiffany Trump said Tuesday. “People need to realize that our thoughts, opinions and even the choice of who to vote for are manipulated and invisibly imposed by the media and tech giants.”

Tiffany Trump explained to her father that he was driven by the “American spirit”. “My dad made me believe America really can be great again!” Tiffany Trump said of herself that she had just graduated from law school: “I can empathize with so many of you who might be looking for a job.”

Haley said Monday evening (local time) that he had taken a tough position against China and defeated the IS terror group. “And he’s telling the world what to hear.”

Trump’s Democratic rival Joe Biden, on the other hand, had “weakness and failure” in foreign policy since his time as Vice President Barack Obama, Haley said. “Joe Biden is good for Iran, ISIS (Islamic State Terrorist Militia), and he is great for communist China.”

She was also tough on the United Nations: “This is a place where dictators, murderers and thieves condemn America, and then reach out and demand that we pay their bills.” Trump put an end to that. “America is not a racist country,” said Haley, the daughter of Indian immigrants. Her family also experienced “discrimination and deprivation”. But her parents did not plunge into “resentment and hatred”.

Donald Trump, on the other hand, is the first US president since Ronald Reagan to not lead the US into another war, Gaetz said Monday night (local time) at the largely virtual Republican party conference. “President Trump knows we are strongest when we fight the hardest – not in distant deserts, but for our fellow Americans.”

Gaetz said, “We must fight to save America or we could lose it forever.” He accused Biden’s Democrats of taking weapons from the Americans while trying to empty the prisons. “And the police don’t come when you call them.” The Republicans accuse Democrats of wanting to withdraw funding from the police, which is not an election target for Biden.

After criticism: the manager of the US post office ensures punctual postal votes

The controversial head of the US post office, Louis DeJoy, has promised “safe and punctual” transportation of the ballots in the US postal voting dispute. As for the 2018 congressional election, his agency will deliver 95 percent of the relevant documents within three days, DeJoy said before a senatorial committee in Washington on Friday. In any case, the number of letters in elections lags behind major events like Mother’s Day or Christmas, which the US Post manages well. However, he is considering “major changes to improve services,” DeJoy said in the post-election period.

On Monday, the postmaster also had to testify before the Lower House. The Congress Chamber wants to deal with a bill on Saturday to prevent cutbacks. DeJoy had postponed his reform plans last week. Democrats had expressed concern that they might favor incumbent Republican Donald Trump in the November election. DeJoy had backed the president and his party with millions of donations before his appointment. Trump himself has repeatedly warned against postal falsifications, but without providing any evidence. Experts have stated that postal voting in the US is just as safe as other forms of voting.

Gysi and Trittin welcome Biden’s appointment

Gregor Gysi, foreign policy spokesman for the Left Party, and Jürgen Trittin, Green Party politician, have responded positively to Joe Biden’s nomination as Democratic presidential candidate and see the 77-year-old as an alternative to incumbent Donald Trump.

“Joe Biden has put the social, economic and environmental problems of the US under one name: Trump. With this party conference, the Democrats closed the ranks behind Biden and switched to attack mode,” explains Gysi Chillreport. Biden’s resolution approaches with a little more fiscal justice, trillion public investment in climate and health protection, and a clear commitment to racism would tie in with Obama’s policies and put the US a bit in the middle after Trump. Bernie Sander’s support for Biden makes it clear how necessary this is after four years of Trump. Although little was said about Biden’s foreign policy because this topic regularly plays a minor role in the US election campaign, it is hoped that normalization will take place. in terms of China, Russia, is entering Europe, ”said Gysi. “In any case, Biden seems to be clear that the US cannot overcome its crisis with national selfishness.”

Trittin: “The alternative to Trump is on the table”

Jürgen Trittin also welcomes Biden’s nomination. “With the end of the party congress and Joe Biden’s speech, the alternative to Trump is on the table. Where this divides and polarizes, Biden wants to unite the country. Compassion and character strength become an election issue,” the green politician said Chillreport. the. Biden acts as the country’s foremost caretaker. He has the courage to address the issues openly and speaks about the four crises in the United States – corona, recession, racism and climate crisis. They must be addressed and not suppressed. ” “there is no wonder.” The voters should take action themselves and prevent a new majority for Trump. “With this expectation management, Joe Biden presents himself not as a savior, but as an offer to do better,” said Trittin. “That also applies internationally. If he is elected, neither the global challenges nor the transatlantic conflicts of interest will disappear. But there is a greater likelihood that crises like corona, climate and recession will be tackled globally and together again.”

13-Year-Old Stutterer: Without Joe Biden, I wouldn’t speak today

“Without Joe Biden I wouldn’t speak to you today”: At the party conference of the American Democrats, 13-year-old Brayden Harrington praised presidential candidate Joe Biden as caretaker. He met Biden in New Hampshire a few months ago, he said in a video message broadcast Thursday evening (local time). “He told me we were members of the same club: we stutter.” Biden showed him how to mark his speeches himself so that it would be easier to speak them out loud.

“I’m just a normal guy and in no time Joe Biden has made me more confident about something that’s been bothering me all my life,” said Brayden. Joe Biden took care of it. “Imagine what he could do for all of us.” In a film later shot at the virtual party conference, Biden himself described how he worked as a child to overcome his stuttering.

More than 70 former Republican security officials pledge aid to Biden

More than 70 former Republican national security officials, including several former members of the Trump administration, have signed an open letter expressing support for Joe Biden in the US election. In addition, in the letter they sharply criticize the policies of US President Donald Trump.

“We are very concerned about developments in our country under Donald Trump’s leadership,” the letter said. “Through his actions and rhetoric, Trump has shown that he lacks the character and competence to lead this nation and that he has been guilty of corrupt behavior that leaves him unable to serve as president.” Donald Trump lost the trust of millions of voters. He was “dangerous” and “unable” to use any other term.

“We believe, however, that Joe Biden has the character, experience and temperament to run our country,” it continues. The letter was signed by, among others, former FBI director William Webster and Chuck Hagel, the former Secretary of Defense under ex-President Barack Obama.

Democrat Bloomberg condemns Trump’s economic policies

Former Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg has sharply criticized US President Donald Trump’s economic policies. Speaking at the Democratic Party conference, the multi-billionaire said Trump’s failed economic policies were a massive tax cut for wealthy people like him who didn’t need extra money. All other Americans have just lied to Trump, the former New York mayor said.

In the November election, Americans should vote not primarily on Trump’s character, but rather on his performance as president, Bloomberg said. “I ask you not to vote against Donald Trump because he is a bad person. I urge you to vote against him because he did a bad job,” said the Democrat. As for the coronavirus pandemic, Bloomberg said Trump’s “reckless decisions” put America at risk. Trump shouldn’t get away with that, he warned.

Bloomberg said on Thursday that after the 2008-2009 financial crisis, Biden had already proven as vice president that he had what it takes to lead the country out of a crisis. Biden will reverse Trump’s tax cut for the wealthy and use the additional resources to rebuild the country after the pandemic, Bloomberg said. Trump’s tenure is a “sad chapter” in US history that must now be ended, Bloomberg said.

Ex-competitors are behind Biden

At the conference of the American Democratic Party, numerous former rivals for the presidential run were behind candidate Joe Biden. Senators Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker and Amy Klobuchar called for Biden’s election.

US-Komikerin Sarah Cooper: Trump will nicht, dass wir wählen

Sie moves when Lips are synchronized with Worten from US President Donald Trump and is in the USA with Kurz videos in social media and become Star: Sarah Cooper (43). Beim Party Day der US-Democrats imitierte die Komikerin Trump am Donnerstagabend (Ortszeit) auf ein Neues und ließ es auf gewohnte Weise so aussehen, as kämen seine Worte aus ihrem Mund: drastic Warnungen vor der Briefwahl. “Who are the Stimmzettel countries? Who cares? Who cares?”, Were Trumps Worte at Auftritt on June 23 in Phoenix (Arizona). “Werden sie von Gruppen innerhalb unserer Nation gefälscht werden? Werden sie vielleicht millionenfach von ausländischen Mächten gefälscht werden?”

Mit ihrer eigenen Stimme, die man in ihren Videos normalerweise nicht hört, sagte Cooper anschließend, sie habe Trump schon viele Male einige sehr verstörende Dinge sagen hören. “Aber nichts ist gefährlicher für unsere Demokratie als seine Attacken auf die Briefwahl – während einer Pandemie!”, sagte Cooper. “Die Wahrheit ist: Donald Trump will, dass niemand von uns wählt. Weil er nicht fair und ehrlich gewinnen kann.”

Coopers Videos funktionieren nach einem Schema: Sie trägt als “Trump” einen Hosenanzug und imitiert ihn mit übertriebener Mimik und Gestik – die Worte sind aber die des Präsidenten.

Demokraten-Parteitag: Mit Lachern gegen Trump

Nach der schonungslosen Kritik an Präsident Donald Trump beim Parteitag der US-Demokraten schlug am vierten Abend am Donnerstag die Stunde der Witze. Schauspielerin Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Seinfeld” und “Veep”) setzte unter anderem auf Scherze über den Amtsinhaber, um die SMS-Info-Nummer des Wahlkampfteams seines Herausforderers Joe Biden in die Köpfe zu bringen. “30330 – das wäre das Golf-Handicap von Donald Trump, wenn er nicht schummeln würde”, war einer davon.

Auch ein Seitenhieb gegen Facebook – ein wichtiges Medium für Trump – blieb nicht aus. “Wenn wir alle wählen, gibt es nichts, was Facebook, Fox News und Wladimir Putin tun können, um uns zu stoppen”, sagte Louis-Dreyfus, die den letzten Tag des weitgehend virtuellen Parteitags moderierte. Sie erinnerte sich, wie Biden ihr zum Titelfoto im Bordmagazin der amerikanischen Bahngesellschaft Amtrak gratulierte. “Joe Biden kann nicht nur lesen, sondern er liest auch alles”, stellte sie fest – ein Seitenhieb gegen Amtsinhaber Trump, über den kolportiert wird, lesefaul zu sein.

Und beim Thema Glauben folgte die nächste Spitze gegen Trump: “Joe Biden geht so regelmäßig in die Kirche, dass er sogar ohne Tränengas und Bundestruppen dort hinkommt.” Bei den Protesten gegen Polizeigewalt und Rassismus hatten Sicherheitskräfte des Bundes Demonstranten aus einem Park vor dem Weißen Haus gedrängt, bevor Trump zur einer nahe gelegenen Kirche ging, vor der er sich mit einer Bibel in der Hand fotografieren ließ.

Trump greift Biden und “wahnsinnige” Demokraten an

US-Präsident Donald Trump hat seinen demokratischen Herausforderer Joe Biden bei einem Wahlkampfauftritt heftig angegriffen. Die Demokraten würden bei einem Wahlsieg im November die Wirtschaft ruinieren, die Polizei abschaffen und das Land in Anarchie stürzen, warnte Trump am Donnerstag (Ortszeit) vor Anhängern im Ort Old Forge im Bundesstaat Pennsylvania. Sie seien “komplett wahnsinnig”, behauptete er. Trump wiederholte auch seine Warnung, dass die Demokraten die Steuern drastisch erhöhen würden. “Es geht bei dieser Wahl um das Überleben der Nation”, sagte Trump. Read more here.

Trump muss Steuerdokumente herausgeben

US-Präsident Donald Trump hat im Streit über die Herausgabe seiner Steuerunterlagen erneut eine Niederlage kassiert. Richter Victor Marrero wies am Donnerstag eine Klage Trumps zurück, mit der dieser die Übergabe von Steuerdokumenten verhindern wollte. Trumps Anwalt Jay Sekulow kündigte Berufung an und beantragte, dass die Unterlagen solange nicht übergeben werden müssen. Beobachter halten es für unwahrscheinlich, dass die Dokumente vor der Wahl im November bekannt werden.

Der Staatsanwalt von Manhattan, Cyrus Vance, ermittelt unter anderem wegen Versicherungs- und Bankbetrugs gegen Trumps Familienunternehmen, die Trump Organization. In diesem Zusammenhang forderte er die Herausgabe von acht Jahren an Steuerunterlagen. Ein Sprecher von Vance lehnte ein Stellungnahme ab.

In den USA ist es üblich, dass der Präsident der Öffentlichkeit Einblick in seine Finanzen gewährt und seine Steuererklärung veröffentlicht. Trump, der sich im November zur Wiederwahl stellt, brach mit dieser Tradition. Er war bis vor den Obersten Gerichtshof der USA gezogen, um die Dokumente weiter unter Verschluss zu halten. Der Supreme Court urteilte im Juli, dass Trump von Vance angeforderte Unterlagen herausgeben muss. Doch das Ende des Rechtsstreit war dies nicht, da sich Trump unter anderem gegen den Umfang der zu übergebenden Unterlagen gerichtlich wehren kann. So landete der Fall erneut vor dem New Yorker Gericht.

Früherer Trump-Berater Steve Bannon festgenommen

Der frühere Trump-Berater Steve Bannon ist am Donnerstag nach einer Betrugsanklage in New York festgenommen worden. Die New Yorker Staatsanwaltschaft wirft ihm und drei weiteren Personen vor, Geld aus einer Online-Spendenaktion für den Bau einer Mauer an der Grenze zu Mexiko unrechtmäßig verwendet zu haben. Die Kampagne unter dem Namen “We Build the Wall” (Wir bauen die Mauer) habe mehr als 25 Millionen Dollar von “hunderttausenden” Spendern bekommen.

Bannon gehört zu den einflussreichsten Stimmen im ultra-konservativen Lager der US-Politik. Er war eine Zeit lang Chefstratege und Wahlkampfchef von US-Präsident Donald Trump. Dem Nachrichtensender CNN zufolge gab es von Bannons Anwalt zunächst keine Reaktion auf die Anklage.

Vize-Kandidatin Harris wirbt mit Botschaft der Einheit für Biden

Die Vize-Kandidatin der US-Demokraten bei der Präsidentschaftswahl, Kamala Harris, hat mit einer Botschaft der Hoffnung und Einheit für die Wahl des designierten Präsidentschaftskandidaten Joe Biden geworben. “Wir müssen einen Präsidenten wählen, der etwas anderes, etwas besseres bringt”, sagte Harris am Mittwochabend (Ortszeit) in Wilmington (Delaware). “Einen Präsidenten, der uns alle – Schwarze, Weiße, Latinos, Asiaten, Indigene – zusammenbringt, um die Zukunft zu erreichen, die wir uns gemeinsam wünschen.” Sie fügte hinzu:

Mit Blick auf den republikanischen Präsidenten Donald Trump sagte Harris: “Donald Trumps Führungsversagen hat Leben und Lebensgrundlagen gekostet.” Sie fügte hinzu: “Wir sind an einem Wendepunkt angelangt. Das ständige Chaos macht uns hilflos. Die Inkompetenz macht uns Angst.” Harris verwies am Mittwoch darauf, dass das Corona-Virus Angehörige von Minderheiten besonders hart trifft. “Das ist kein Zufall. Das ist die Folge von strukturellem Rassismus.” Sie fügte hinzu: “Und lassen Sie uns eines klarstellen – es gibt keinen Impfstoff gegen Rassismus. Wir müssen die Arbeit machen.”

Harris nimmt Nominierung als Vize-Kandidatin an

Kamala Harris hat die Nominierung der US-Demokraten angenommen und ist nun offiziell die Vize-Kandidatin an der Seite von Joe Biden für die Wahl gegen US-Präsident Donald Trump. Sie akzeptiere die Nominierung, sagte die kalifornische Senatorin am Mittwochabend (Ortszeit) in Wilmington im US-Bundesstaat Delaware bei ihrer bislang wichtigsten politischen Rede im Rahmen des virtuell abgehaltenen Parteitags der US-Demokraten.

US-Demokraten nominieren Kamala Harris als Vize-Kandidatin

Die US-Demokraten haben die Senatorin Kamala Harris bei ihrem weitgehend virtuellen Parteitag als Vize-Kandidatin für die Präsidentschaftswahl im November nominiert. “Ich erkläre hiermit, dass Kamala Harris zur demokratischen Kandidaten für das Amt der Vizepräsidenten gewählt ist”, sagte der Parteitagsvorsitzende Bennie Thompson am Mittwochabend (Ortszeit). Joe Biden (77) war am Dienstag offiziell als Präsidentschaftskandidat der Demokraten bei der Wahl am 3. November nominiert worden.

Ex-Vizepräsident Biden (77), der gegen den republikanischen Amtsinhaber Donald Trump (74) antreten wird, hatte sich vergangene Woche für Harris als Vize-Kandidatin entschieden und damit eine historische Wahl getroffen. Im Fall eines Wahlsiegs wäre die heute 55-Jährige die erste Frau und Schwarze im Vizepräsidentenamt. “Lass uns heute Abend Geschichte schreiben”, schrieb Biden zuvor an Harris gerichtet auf Twitter.

Obama übt scharfe Kritik an Trump: Demokratie steht auf dem Spiel

Der ehemalige US-Präsident Barack Obama hat den republikanischen Amtsinhaber Donald Trump ungewöhnlich scharf angegriffen. “Donald Trump ist nicht in den Job hineingewachsen, weil er es nicht kann. Und die Folgen dieses Versagens sind schwerwiegend”, sagte Obama in seinem Redebeitrag beim Parteitag der Demokraten am Mittwochabend (Ortszeit). Read more here.

Senatorin Warren: Trump ist “kläglich” in Corona-Krise gescheitert

Die demokratische US-Senatorin Elizabeth Warren hat US-Präsident Donald Trump auf dem Parteitag der Demokraten für die schweren Verlauf der Corona-Pandemie in den USA verantwortlich gemacht. “Diese Krise ist schlimm – und es hätte nicht so sein müssen”, sagte sie am Mittwochabend (Ortszeit) zugeschaltet aus Springfield (Massachusetts). “Die Ignoranz und Inkompetenz von Donald Trump waren schon immer eine Gefahr für unser Land.” Das Coronavirus sei Trumps größter Test gewesen. “Er ist kläglich gescheitert”, sagte Warren. Am 3. November werde er dafür zur Verantwortung gezogen.

Warren wollte Trump bei der Wahl im November selbst herausfordern – mittlerweile unterstützt sie den nominierten Kandidaten Joe Biden. Sie liebe einen “guten Plan” und Biden habe “einige richtig gute Pläne”, sagte die linke Senatorin.

Pelosi bescheinigt Trump Respektlosigkeit gegenüber Frauen

Die Vorsitzende des US-Repräsentantenhauses, Nancy Pelosi, hat US-Präsident Donald Trump “Respektlosigkeit gegenüber Fakten, gegenüber Arbeiterfamilien und insbesondere gegenüber Frauen” bescheinigt. Das spiegele sich nicht nur in seinem Verhalten, sondern auch in seiner Politik wider, sagte Pelosi (80) am Mittwochabend (Ortszeit) in ihrem Beitrag für den Parteitag der Demokraten in Milwaukee (Wisconsin). “Aber wir wissen, was er nicht weiß: Dass Amerika erfolgreich ist, wenn Frauen erfolgreich sind.” Pelosi rief zur Wahl des designierten demokratischen Präsidentschaftskandidaten Joe Biden und von dessen Vize-Kandidatin Kamala Harris auf.

Pelosi kündigte an, die Demokraten würden bei der Wahl im November ihre Mehrheit im Repräsentantenhaus ausbauen und den Senat von den Republikanern zurückerobern. Außerdem würden Biden und Harris ins Weiße Haus gewählt werden.

Hillary Clinton: Amerika braucht einen besseren Präsidenten

Die frühere Außenministerin, Senatorin und First Lady Hillary Clinton hat US-Präsident Donald Trump eine schlechte Amtsführung bescheinigt. “Ich wünschte, Donald Trump wüsste, wie man ein Präsident ist”, sagte Clinton am Mittwochabend (Ortszeit) in ihrem Beitrag zum Parteitag der Demokraten in Milwaukee (Wisconsin). “Weil Amerika jetzt sofort einen besseren Präsidenten braucht”, fügte sie hinzu. Clinton rief zur Wahl des designierten Präsidentschaftskandidaten der Demokraten, Joe Biden, und dessen Vize-Kandidatin Kamala Harris auf.

Die Demokratin Clinton war dem Republikaner Trump bei der Präsidentschaftswahl 2016 unterlegen. Sie sagte am Mittwoch, sie habe Trump nach ihrer Niederlage eine echte Chance gegeben, um sich im Amt zu beweisen. Inzwischen sei aber deutlich, was bei einer zweiten Amtszeit Trumps auf dem Spiel stehe: “Unsere Gesundheit, unsere Jobs, sogar unsere Leben”.

Amerika brauche einen Präsidenten, der im Weißen Haus Mitgefühl, Entschlossenheit und Führungsstärke zeige. Clinton (72) appellierte an die Wähler: “Wählen Sie, als stünden unsere Leben und unsere Lebensgrundlagen auf dem Spiel, denn das tun sie.”

“Habe Stimme nicht verloren”: Attentatsopfer ruft zu Biden-Wahl auf

Die demokratische US-Politikerin Gabrielle Giffords, die 2011 als Abgeordnete bei einem Attentat schwer verletzt wurde, hat für die Wahl von Joe Biden geworben. In ihrer Rede beim Parteitag der US-Demokraten, die nach Angaben der “New York Times” die längste war, die sie seit dem Attentat gehalten hat, verknüpfte sie ihr persönliches Schicksal mit dem des Landes: Worte habe sie einst leicht gefunden. “Heute kämpfe ich mit der Rede. Aber ich habe meine Stimme nicht verloren”, sagte sie. Jeder müsse die Stimme erheben, auch wenn man kämpfen müsse, die Worte zu finden.

Joe Biden tritt für die Demokraten im November gegen US-Präsident Donald Trump an. “Wir stehen an einem Scheideweg. Wir können die Schießereien weitergehen lassen oder wir können handeln”, sagte Giffords. “Wir können unsere Familien beschützen, unsere Zukunft. Wir können wählen. Wir können auf der richtigen Seite der Geschichte stehen.” Biden müsse gewählt werden, mahnte sie. “Er war für mich da, er wird auch für euch da sein”, versprach sie.

Giffords wurde im Januar 2011 bei einem Bürgertreff in einem Einkaufszentrum in Tucson (Arizona) durch einen Kopfschuss schwer verletzt. Der geistig gestörte Täter tötete sechs Menschen. Beim Parteitag, der wegen der Corona-Pandemie weitgehend virtuell abgehalten wurde, kamen auch andere Betroffene von Waffengewalt zu Wort.

Grammy-Preisträgerin Billie Eilish ruft zur Abwahl von Trump auf

Die Sängerin und Grammy-Preisträgerin Billie Eilish hat beim Parteitag der Demokraten in Milwaukee (Wisconsin) zur Abwahl von US-Präsident Donald Trump im November aufgerufen. “Donald Trump zerstört unser Land und alles, was uns wichtig ist”, sagte Eilish am Mittwochabend (Ortszeit) bei ihrem Video-Auftritt im Rahmen des weitgehend virtuellen Parteitags. “Wir brauchen Anführer, die Probleme wie den Klimawandel und Covid lösen und sie nicht leugnen. Anführer, die systemischen Rassismus und Ungleichheit bekämpfen.”

Eilish fügte hinzu: “Das beginnt damit, gegen Donald Trump und für Joe Biden zu stimmen. Schweigen ist keine Option, und wir können das nicht aussitzen.” Eilish sang nach ihrem Appell, wählen zu gehen, ihren Ende Juli veröffentlichten Song “My Future”.

Parteitag der US-Demokraten geht in die dritte Runde

Ursprünglich war das Treffen der Demokraten in einer großen Halle in Milwaukee in Wisconsin geplant gewesen. Das viertägige traditionelle Mega-Event wurde aber wegen der Coronavirus-Pandemie auf zwei Stunden Programm pro Tag im Stil einer TV-Show reduziert, das im Fernsehen und online übertragen wird.

Trump ruft zu Boykott einer Firma auf

US-Präsident Donald Trump hat zum Boykott des Reifenherstellers Goodyear aufgerufen, weil die Firma seine Anhänger benachteilige. Die Firma habe Kopfbedeckungen mit seinem Slogan “Make America Great Again” verboten, erklärte der Präsident zur Begründung bei Twitter am Mittwoch. Der Kurs der Goodyear-Aktie sackte nach Trumps Tweet zunächst um mehr als drei Prozent ab, erholte sich dann aber etwas.

Auslöser für Trumps Vorgehen dürften Medienberichte gewesen sein, wonach bei einer Schulung in einem Goodyear-Werk im Bundesstaat Kansas Bekleidung mit dem Slogan für “nicht akzeptabel” erklärt worden waren. Trump hatte schon im Wahlkampf 2016 auf das “MAGA”-Versprechen gesetzt, Amerika zu alter Größe zurückzubringen. Laut einem im Internet veröffentlichten Foto einer Präsentationsfolie wurden dagegen Symbole der der Bewegung “Black Lives Matter” gegen Gewalt an Schwarzen und für Toleranz gegenüber sexuellen Minderheiten erlaubt. Es blieb unklar, ob das Foto die tatsächliche Firmenpolitik zeigte.

“Kaufen Sie bessere Reifen für viel weniger Geld!”, twitterte Trump. Bei Twitter machten daraufhin Fotos die Runde, auf denen der Goodyear-Schriftzug auf den Reifen seiner Präsidenten-Limousine zu sehen war.

CDU-Politiker: Trumps Wahlkampf-Rhetorik ist “beunruhigend”

Der Transatlantik-Koordinator der Bundesregierung, Peter Beyer (CDU), hat die Wahlkampf-Rhetorik von US-Präsident Donald Trump als “beunruhigend” bezeichnet. Die Aussage Trumps, er müsse erst einmal schauen, ob er am Ende das Wahlergebnis akzeptiert oder nicht, “macht schon Sorge”, sagte Beyer der “Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung”. Auch torpediere Trump die US-Post, um die Briefwahl zu behindern. “Das geht schon in eine sehr undemokratische Richtung”, kritisierte der CDU-Politiker.

Es sei damit zu rechnen, dass sich die Wahlkampfrhetorik vor dem Wahltermin am 3. November noch verschärfen werde, sagte Beyer. Der demokratische Kandidat Joe Biden und sein “Running Mate” Kamala Harris seien “gut beraten, sich nicht darauf einzulassen und souverän zu bleiben”.

Beyer attestierte Trump in der “Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung” steigende Nervosität. Wie schon im Wahlkampf 2016 setze Trump auf sein Motto “America first”, Amerika zuerst. “Er hat kein neues Programm. Er setzt voll auf seine Stammwähler und dass dies reicht, ihn wieder ins Oval Office zu tragen.”

Bill Clinton: Trumps Jobverständnis ist stundenlanges Fernsehen

Ex-US-Präsident Bill Clinton hat beim Parteitag der Demokraten zur Abwahl von US-Präsident Donald Trump bei der Wahl im November aufgerufen. “Wenn Sie einen Präsidenten wollen, der seinen Job so definiert, dass er täglich Stunden vor dem Fernseher verbringt und und Leute in sozialen Medien beharkt, dann ist er Ihr Mann”, sagte der 74-Jährige in einer Videobotschaft am Dienstag. Zur Wahl stehe entweder Trumps “Wir-Gegen-Sie”-Amerika oder Joe Bidens Amerika, “wo wir alle zusammenleben und zusammenarbeiten. Es ist eine klare Wahl. Und die Zukunft unseres Landes hängt davon ab.”

Clinton sagte mit Blick auf die Corona-Krise und der infolge der Pandemie dramatisch angestiegenen Arbeitslosigkeit: “In einer Zeit wie dieser sollte das Oval Office eine Kommandozentrale sein. Stattdessen ist es ein Sturmzentrum”, kritisierte Clinton. Unter Trump gebe es nur Chaos – nur eine Sache ändere sich nie: “Seine Entschlossenheit, Verantwortung zu bestreiten und die Schuld abzuwälzen.”

Jill Biden ruft zur Überbrückung von Gräben in den USA auf

Die Ehefrau des designierten Präsidentschaftskandidaten der Demokraten Joe Biden, Jill Biden, hat zur Überbrückung der Gräben in den USA aufgerufen. “Es gibt diejenigen, die uns sagen wollen, dass unser Land hoffnungslos gespalten ist, dass unsere Differenzen unvereinbar sind”, sagte Jill Biden (69) in einem Beitrag zum weitgehend virtuell abgehaltenen Parteitag der Demokraten in Milwaukee (Wisconsin). “Aber das ist nicht, was ich in diesen Monaten gesehen habe.”

“Wir brauchen einfach eine Führung, die unserer Nation würdig ist”, sagte Jill Biden. “Eine ehrliche Führung, die uns wieder zusammenbringt, um uns von dieser Pandemie zu erholen und uns auf das vorzubereiten, was als Nächstes kommt. Führung, um uns neu zu überlegen, was unsere Nation sein wird. Das ist Joe.” Ihr Ehemann und dessen Vize-Kandidatin Kamala Harris “werden jeden Tag genauso hart arbeiten wie Sie, um diese Nation besser zu machen. Und wenn ich die Ehre habe, als Ihre First Lady zu dienen, werde ich das auch tun.”

Chillreport-Korrespondent: Das Versprechen heißt “Zurück zur Normalität”

Die Einschätzung unseres Washington-Korrespondenten Fabian Reinbold: “Der zweite Abend des Parteitags stand unter dem inoffiziellen Motto ‘Zurück zur Normalität’. Zahlreiche Redner priesen Joe Biden als jemanden, der ohne das Chaos und Drama der Trump-Jahre regieren werde. Immer wieder wurden Bidens Bemühungen um Ausgleich und Zusammenarbeit über Parteigrenzen hinweg gelobt. Auch in der Außenpolitik stellten Redner wie die Ex-Außenminister John Kerry (Demokraten) und Colin Powell (Republikaner) der Welt eine Rückkehr zu alten Zeiten und Bündnissen in Aussicht. Das ist typisch für den Biden-Wahlkampf, der sich weniger um konkrete Gesetzesvorhaben dreht und mehr um eine Wiederherstellung verloren geglaubter Werte.

Überraschend lebendig geriet die formelle Nominierung Bidens. Kleine Einspielfilme aus 57 Staaten und Gebieten zeigten, während diese ihre Delegiertenstimmen offiziell vergaben, ein buntes und hoffnungsvolles Amerika: Von einem Vertreter der Sioux-Ureinwohner bis zu einem Farmer auf seinem Feld in Kansas war der übergreifende geäußerte Wunsch, dass Biden die Spaltung des Landes überwinden solle.”

Obama gratuliert Biden zu Nominierung: “Ich bin stolz auf dich”

Der ehemalige Präsident Barack Obama hat Joe Biden zur Nominierung als Präsidentschaftskandidat der US-Demokraten beglückwünscht. “Gratuliere, Joe. Ich bin stolz auf dich”, schrieb der 59-Jährige am Dienstagabend (Ortszeit) auf Twitter. Er kommentierte damit einen Tweet Bidens, der geschrieben hatte, “es ist die Ehre meines Lebens”, die Nominierung als Präsidentschaftskandidat der Demokraten anzunehmen.

Biden tritt bei der Wahl am 3. November gegen den republikanischen Amtsinhaber Donald Trump an. Formell wird der 77-Jährige die Nominierung am Donnerstag (Ortszeit) annehmen – dann wird Biden seine Nominierungsrede in Wilmington (Delaware) halten. Biden war unter Trumps Vorgänger Obama acht Jahre lang Vizepräsident.

Colin Powell: Biden wird nicht Schmeichelei von Diktatoren vertrauen

Der frühere US-Außenminister Colin Powell hat beim Parteitag der Demokraten zur Wahl des designierten Präsidentschaftskandidaten Joe Biden im November aufgerufen. “Heute sind wir ein gespaltenes Land, und wir haben einen Präsidenten, der alles in seiner Macht Stehende tut, damit es so bleibt”, sagte Powell in seinem Videobeitrag beim Parteitag mit Blick auf den republikanischen Amtsinhaber Donald Trump. “Was für einen Unterschied wird es machen, einen Präsidenten zu haben, der uns eint, der uns unsere Kraft und unsere Seele wiedergibt.”

Ex-General Powell war von 2001 bis 2005 unter dem republikanischen US-Präsidenten George W. Bush Außenminister. Powell sagte am Dienstag: “Joe Biden wird ein Präsident sein, dem wir alle mit Stolz salutieren können. Mit Joe Biden im Weißen Haus werden Sie nie daran zweifeln, dass er zu unseren Freunden stehen und unseren Gegnern die Stirn bieten wird – niemals umgekehrt. Er wird unseren Diplomaten und unseren Geheimdiensten vertrauen, nicht der Schmeichelei von Diktatoren und Despoten.”

John Kerry: US-Wahl entscheidet Sicherheit Amerikas und der Welt

Bei der US-Wahl im November geht es nach Ansicht des ehemaligen US-Außenministers John Kerry um die “Sicherheit Amerikas und der Welt”. Bei dem Parteitag der US-Demokraten sagte Kerry in seinem am Dienstagabend (Ortszeit) ausgestrahlten Redebeitrag mit Blick auf US-Präsident Donald Trump: “Er trennt sich von unseren Verbündeten und schreibt Liebesbriefe an Diktatoren.”

Amerika verdiene einen Präsidenten, zu dem aufgeschaut, der nicht ausgelacht werde. Über Joe Biden, der für die Demokraten gegen Trump antritt, sagte Kerry: “Er weiß, dass man die Demokratie nicht in der Welt verbreiten kann, wenn man sie nicht zu Hause praktiziert. Und er weiß, dass selbst die Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika Freunde auf diesem Planeten brauchen.” Kerry war unter dem ehemaligen US-Präsidenten Barack Obama Außenminister, Biden Vizepräsident.

Ex-US-Präsident Carter ruft zur Wahl von Joe Biden auf

Ex-US-Präsident Jimmy Carter hat beim Parteitag der Demokraten in Milwaukee (Wisconsin) zur Wahl von Joe Biden bei der US-Präsidentschaftswahl im November aufgerufen. “Joe Biden muss unser nächster Präsident werden”, sagte Carter in einer am Dienstagabend auf dem Parteitag ausgestrahlten Audiobotschaft. “Wir verdienen eine Person mit Integrität und Urteilsvermögen, jemanden, der ehrlich und fair ist, jemanden, der sich für das einsetzt, was am besten für das amerikanische Volk ist.”

Der Demokrat Carter (95) ist der älteste noch lebende Ex-Präsident. Ex-Vizepräsident Biden soll am Dienstag beim Parteitag als Kandidat nominiert werden und im November gegen den republikanischen Amtsinhaber Donald Trump antreten. Der Parteitag der Demokraten hatte am Montag mit Attacken gegen Trump begonnen.

28,9 Millionen sehen Demokraten-Parteitag – weniger TV-Zuschauer

Der diesjährige Parteitag der US-Demokraten ist wegen der Corona-Pandemie ein reines Experiment, weil das Live-Spektakel fehlt. 28,9 Millionen Menschen haben die erstmals weitgehend virtuell abgehaltene Veranstaltung am ersten Abend im Fernsehen oder über digitale Plattformen verfolgt, wie die Demokraten am Dienstag (Ortszeit) mitteilten.

Bei dem Großteil (18,7 Millionen) handelte es sich um Fernsehzuschauer. Vor vier Jahren hätten noch 26 Millionen die “Convention” zum Auftakt im Fernsehen verfolgt, berichteten mehrere US-Medien unter Berufung auf die Firma Nielsen Media Research. US-Präsident Donald Trump bezeichnete die Einschaltquoten am Dienstag als “sehr schlecht”.

Traditionell sind die Parteitage Mega-Events mit Zehntausenden Delegierten und Gästen, und sie sollen die Begeisterung für die Kandidaten wenige Monate vor der Wahl schüren. Die Demokraten haben ihr offizielles Programm dieses Jahr auf zwei Stunden an vier Abenden reduziert.

Witwe von Senator John McCain spricht beim Demokraten-Parteitag

Die Witwe des ehemaligen republikanischen Senators John McCain (1936-2018) spricht beim Parteitag der US-Demokraten über die “unwahrscheinliche Freundschaft” mit dem designierten Präsidentschaftskandidaten Joe Biden. Die Demokraten veröffentlichten am Dienstag (Ortszeit) vor dem Beginn des zweistündigen Parteitagprogramms Ausschnitte eines Videos, in dem Cindy McCain über die Verbindung zwischen den beiden spricht und an Picknicks im Garten der Bidens erinnert.

Trump: Mexiko wird für Grenzmauer bezahlen

Knapp drei Monate vor der Wahl in den USA hat Präsident Donald Trump ein bislang unerfülltes Wahlversprechen aus dem vergangenen Wahlkampf reaktiviert. “Mexiko wird für die Mauer bezahlen”, sagte Trump am Dienstag (Ortszeit) bei einem Besuch in der Grenzstadt Yuma in Arizona. Trump hatte vor der Wahl 2016 versprochen, er werde eine Mauer an der Südgrenze der USA bauen und Mexiko dafür bezahlen lassen. Nach Trumps Angaben sind bislang rund 280 Meilen (450 Kilometer) des umstrittenen Grenzwalls errichtet worden. Finanziert hat den Bau bislang der US-Steuerzahler. Read more here.

US-Post sichert pünktliche Zustellung von Briefwahl-Unterlagen zu

Im Streit über die Ausstattung der Post vor der US-Präsidentschaftswahl im November hat der Chef der Behörde eine pünktliche Zustellung von Briefwahl-Unterlagen zugesichert. Post-Chef Louis DeJoy teilte am Dienstag in Washington mit, Wahlpost werde “pünktlich und innerhalb unserer gut etablierten Servicestandards” zugestellt. Reformen, die er angestoßen habe, würden vorerst gestoppt. “Um auch nur den Anschein einer Auswirkung auf die Wahlpost zu vermeiden, setze ich diese Initiativen bis nach der Wahl aus.” DeJoy ist ein Verbündeter von US-Präsident Donald Trump.

Trump hatte am vergangenen Donnerstag offen davon gesprochen, der Post die notwendigen Mittel vorzuenthalten, um Abermillionen Briefwahlzettel fristgerecht zu befördern. Demokraten sahen darin einen Versuch des republikanischen Amtsinhabers, die Wahlbeteiligung zu seinen Gunsten gering zu halten. Trump hat dagegen wiederholt erklärt, dass Briefwahl das Fälschungsrisiko deutlich erhöhe – ohne dafür Belege vorzulegen. Die Demokraten setzen sich dafür ein, dass wegen der anhaltenden Corona-Pandemie möglichst vielen Wählern die Abstimmung per Briefwahl ermöglicht wird.

Trump attackiert Obama und seinen Vize Biden als korrupt

US-Präsident Donald Trump hat mit scharfen Worten auf die Kritik der Demokraten zum Auftakt ihres Parteitags im Rennen ums Weiße Haus reagiert. “Die Administration von Obama und Biden war die korrupteste in der Geschichte”, schrieb der Präsident am Dienstag bei Twitter. Dazu gehöre, dass sie sein Wahlkampfteam ausgespäht hätten, was “der größte politische Skandal in der Geschichte unseres Landes” sei, wiederholte Trump seinen häufigen, aber nicht erwiesenen Vorwurf. “Das nennt man Verrat, und mehr.”

Wenige Stunden zuvor hatten die Demokraten am ersten Tag ihres Parteitags, der Obamas Vizepräsidenten Joe Biden diese Woche offiziell als Kandidaten für die Präsidentenwahl im November nominieren soll, Trump heftig kritisiert. So sagte die ehemalige First Lady Michelle Obama: “Donald Trump ist der falsche Präsident für unser Land.”

Trump konterte, jemand müsse Michelle Obama erklären, dass er nur im Weißen Haus sitze, weil ihr Ehemann Barack Obama seinen Job schlecht gemacht habe. “Meine Administration und ich haben die großartigste Wirtschaft in der Geschichte aufgebaut, weltweit, sie dann heruntergefahren, Millionen Leben gerettet, und nun baue ich eine noch großartigere Wirtschaft als zuvor auf”, schrieb Trump.

Als Michelle Obama Trump den Charakter absprach

Michelle Obama, Bernie Sanders und sogar ein paar Republikaner: Die Demokraten präsentieren zum Start ihres Parteitags ein breites Bündnis gegen Trump – die Ex-First-Lady setzt dabei das Ausrufezeichen, schreibt Washington-Korrespondent Fabian Reinbold.

Trump: Können Wahl nur bei Manipulation verlieren

US-Präsident Donald Trump hält eine Niederlage bei der Präsidentschaftswahl im November nur im Fall von Wahlmanipulationen für möglich. “Wir müssen diese Wahl gewinnen”, sagte Trump am Montag (Ortszeit) bei einem Auftritt vor Anhängern in Oshkosh im Bundesstaat Wisconsin. “Stellen Sie sicher, dass Ihre Stimmen gezählt werden. Stellen Sie das sicher, weil der einzige Weg, wie wir diese Wahl verlieren werden, ist, wenn die Wahl manipuliert ist. Denken Sie daran. Das ist der einzige Weg, wie wir diese Wahl verlieren werden.” Trump betonte: “Wir werden für das Überleben unserer Nation und der Zivilisation selbst kämpfen.”

Bernie Sanders: “Nero fiedelte, als Rom brannte. Trump spielt Golf”

Joe Biden soll im Mittelpunkt des Parteitags stehen – nicht Donald Trump. Doch der Präsident ist ein Hauptargument für die Demokraten im Kampf um das Weiße Haus. Ein Überblick über den Start des Parteitags.
