It was a truth bomb on Friday evening from former Kansas Senator Bob Dole on Twitter.
Dole, a Republican, admitted in his Tweet on Friday that members on the Commission on Presidential Debates, which is made up of Republicans and Democrats, don’t support President Donald Trump. The controversial decision by the commission to conduct the next Presidential debate remotely
“The Commission on Presidential Debates is supposedly bipartisan w/ an equal number of Rs and Ds,” said Dole. “I know all of the Republicans and most are friends of mine. I am concerned that none of them support @realDonaldTrump. A biased Debate Commission is unfair.”
Dole is right. The rules being established by the commission certainly are targeting and ostracizing Trump, while ignoring the very real issues plaguing Democratic candidate former Vice President Joe Biden.
The co-chair of the commission Frank Fahrenkopf, said Trump’s campaign presented “no evidence whatsoever” that he has tested negative for the coronavirus, after being released from Walter Reed Military Medical Center after a three day stint at the facility. He was released by doctors and has remained symptom free of COVID-19.
Trump has declined to do the virtual debate.
In an interview with Brian Kilmeade on Fox News, Fahrenkopf said he wanted to have a debate next week saying a virtual debate is the “safest way to go.”
“We’re talking about something that will happen in less than a week, if it had originally gone forward. Less than a week,” he told Kilmeade. “At this point in time, there is no evidence whatsoever whether or not when the president tested negative.”

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’
Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social, “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”
Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”
It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.
Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.
And the escalation of war is visible.
Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.
Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.
Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”
Morning. Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”
F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.
Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
