President Trump Holds ‘White House Event’, But Democrats Cry Foul

The left was quick to cite the Hatch Act in their complaints.

President Trump has already had an incredibly eventful week, having spent last weekend in a hospital dealing with COVID-19 effects, and then spending days arguing with the Commission on Presidential Debates over just what the format for the next debate will be.

Now back at the White House after that brief stint in Walter Reed Medical Center, the Commander in Chief is also itching to get back out on the campaign trial.  There is less than a month separating this moment from the 2020 election, and Trump isn’t the sort of leader who likes to spend any time sidelined.

But there are still concerns that he isn’t completely “out of the woods” in regard to COVID-19 just yet, and the White House has an incredibly robust medical facility on-site should the President’s condition deteriorate.

So, for now, the President is confined to Pennsylvania Avenue…but that’s not going to stop him from speaking to the people.

President Donald Trump on Saturday sought to fire up Black and Latino supporters at the White House in a campaign-style rally that focused on his administration’s support for law enforcement, his first public event since testing positive for COVID-19 more than a week ago.

“I’m feeling great, I don’t know about you,” Trump said in an 18-minute speech while standing on the Blue Room balcony overlooking the South Lawn.

In order to protect the lives of Black Americans and all Americans,”you have to have your police support you,”Trump said.

“Every day more Black and Latino Americans are leaving behind left-wing politicians and their failed ideology,” he said.

Trump spoke before a sea of supporters, many of whom wore masks and red “Make America Great Again” campaign hats, in an event billed as a “peaceful protest for law and order.”Most of the crowd wore blue t-shirts for a “Back the Blue” pro-police demonstration that was organized by the Blexit Foundation, a conservative group founded by Candace Owens and aimed at encouraging African Americans to leave the Democratic Party.

Democrats and liberal pundits were quick to rain on the President’s parade, however, proclaiming that the event was a possible Hatch Act violation.

The Hatch Act prohibits the use of taxpayer funded amenities for events benefitting any particular election campaign.  In this case, the argument is that Trump’s use of the White House would constitute a violation.
