Aug. 18 — A bus-load and more of supporters from Mohave County greeted President Donald J. Trump on his campaign stop in Yuma, AZ on Aug. 18. The Mohave County Republican Party arranged for a bus to travel to Yuma from Lake Havasu City.
While in Yuma, he was briefed on border wall construction. At the same time, the Democrat National Convention (or the Blame-America party) was ongoing in Las Vegas, NV.
Arizona Representatives Paul Gosar and Debbie Lesko also joined the President during his trip to Yuma.
After visiting the border wall, Trump delivered remarks on Joe Biden’s failures on immigration and border security.
“The Biden plan would unleash a flood of illegal immigration like the world has never seen. It’s crazy,” the President said. “Biden’s plan is the most radical, extreme, reckless, dangerous and deadly immigration plan ever put forward by a major party candidate.”
During his speech, Trump also focused his attention on COVID-19, lowering taxes, and Biden’s new running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, considered the most liberal member of the U.S. Senate in 2019, according to Govtrack.us.
“She is not the right pick, but she was my number one draft pick,” Trump said. “They asked me that. What do you think I said? I’m very happy. They thought I was happy. They thought I was happy for him. No, I was happy for me.”
Govtrack.us, which says it is “one of the oldest government transparency websites in the world,” publishes the status of federal legislation, information about representatives and senators in Congress including voting records, and original research on legislation.
Sen. Harris earned another distinction: She was the 3rd most absent compared to all Senators. Harris missed 61.9% of votes (265 of 428 votes) in 2019., Govtrack.us said.
