Presumptive Democrat presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden said on Twitter Sunday he would “transform” America if he wins the presidency over President Trump this November. Biden’s vow echoes the goals of armed, violent Antifa and Black Lives Matter protesters who have been ‘transforming’ the nation this summer by taking over sections of major cities, killing, looting and setting fires, waging war on law enforcement and toppling statues in cities and towns across the country–including the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C.

Is Biden wearing a coronavirus mask or an Antifa mask?

“We’re going to beat Donald Trump. And when we do, we won’t just rebuild this nation — we’ll transform it.”

The Trump campaign’s Tim Murtaugh responded with a question Biden and photos of the results of liberal mobs attacking statues of George Washington, ““Transform it” like this?”

Also on Sunday, potential Biden running mate Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) said she’s open to taking down statues of George Washington.

Audio clips are being posted from President Trump’s conference call with governors that took place Monday morning. The media said Trump was “unhinged.” Listen and decide. Update: Link to complete audio at end.

Listen for yourself:

CNN clip transcribed by TGP:

Trump: “What happened in the state of Minnesota, they were (garbled) stuff all over the world. They took over the police department. The police were running down the street, sirens blazing, the rest of them running. It was on camera. And then they wiped out, you probably have to build a new one. But I’ve never seen anything like it. And the whole world was laughing.

“Two days later I spoke to the governor, the governor (garbled) and all of a sudden, I said you gotta use the National Guard to take over, they didn’t at first and then they did. And I’ll tell you I don’t know what it was, governor, it the third night, fourth night those guys walked through that stuff like it was butter. They walked right through and you haven’t had any problems since. I mean, they know. They’re not gonna go there, now they’ll go to some other place. But once you called out and you dominated, you took the worst place and you made it, they didn’t even cover it last night because there was so little action. You dominated, you dominated.

“Now what happened to New York, and I have to tell you I live in Manhattan, what’s going on in Manhattan I have no idea. New York’s Finest, they got to be allowed to maybe to do their jobs. I don’t know what’s happening in Manhattan, but it’s terrible. And because it’s New York, because it’s Manhattan it gets a lot of press, so they really spend a lot of time on it.

“But New York is gonna have to toughen up and we’ll send you National Guard if you want. You have the largest police force in the country, 40,000 people I understand. But what’s going on in New York is terrible. It’s terrible. Of all the places.

“What went on last night in Los Angeles with the stores and the storefronts is terrible. No domination. You have to dominate. (Garbled).”

End.

Vice clip transcribed by TGP:

“We’re strongly looking for arrests, you have to get much tougter. We’re going to get over it. I know Governor Walz is on the phone and we spoke and uh, I fully agree with they way he handled it the last couple of days. I asked him to do that. And a lot of men, We have a lot of men, all the men and women that you need, but people aren’t calling them up. You have to dominate. If you don’t dominate, you’re wasting your time. They’re gonna run all over you. You’ll look like a bunch of jerks. You have to dominate.

“And you have to arrest people and you have to try people and they have to go to jail for long periods of time.

“I saw what happened in Philadelphia. I saw what happened in Dallas where they kicked a guy to death. I don’t know if he died or not but if he didn’t it’s a miracle. What they did to him, they were kicking him like I’ve never seen anything like it in my life. People don’t talk about that, they don’t talk about that. They’re talking about a lot of other things but they don’t talk about that. But I saw what happened in Dallas. And those kids, they’re all on camera, the wise guys.

“And it’s coming from the radical left. You know it. Everybody knows it. But it’s also looters and it’s people that figure they can get free stuff by running into stores and running out with television sets. I saw it, the kid has a lot of stuff, he puts it in the back of a brand new car and drives off.

“You have everyone of these guys on tape. Why aren’t you prosecuting ’em? Now the harder you are, the tougher you are the less likely it is you’re gonna be hit.

“It’s a movement. We found out they’re delivering supplies to various places and various states, you people know about it now. But we found out many things, it’s like a movement. And it’s a movement that if you don’t put it down it’ll get worse and worse. This is like Occupy Wall Street. It was a disaster until one day somebody said, “That’s enough!”

End.

President Trump retweeted a post Sunday evening that included a call to fire Dr. Anthony Fauci, the controversial member of Trump’s White House coronavirus task force who accused Trump of ignoring his advice to institute social distancing in mid-February in an interview with CNN Sunday morning, saying that lives “could have been saved.” Trump himself did not directly comment on Fauci.

Fauci has served since 1984 as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the NIH.

Later Sunday video from February 29 resurfaced of Fauci on the Today Show telling Americans they did not need to alter their behavior for the COVID-19 Chinese coronavrius.

Trump wrote, “Sorry Fake News, it’s all on tape. I banned China long before people spoke up. Thank you @OANN”, over a tweet by former GOP congressional candidate DeAnna Lorriane that said, “Fauci is now saying that had Trump listened to the medical experts earlier he could’ve saved more lives. Fauci was telling people on February 29th that there was nothing to worry about and it posed no threat to the US public at large. Time to #FireFauci…”

Video of Fauci from February 29:

Fauci’s interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on State of the Union from Sunday morning:

UPDATE: Transcript excerpt via CNN:

TAPPER: “The New York Times” reported yesterday that you and other top officials wanted to recommend social and physical distancing guidelines to President Trump as far back as the third week of February, but the administration didn’t announce such guidelines to the American public until March 16, almost a month later.

Why?

FAUCI: You know, Jake, as I have said many times, we look at it from a pure health standpoint. We make a recommendation. Often, the recommendation is taken. Sometimes, it’s not.

But we — it is what it is. We are where we are right now.

TAPPER: Do you think lives could have been saved if social distancing, physical distancing, stay-at-home measures had started third week of February, instead of mid-March?

FAUCI: You know, Jake, again, it’s the what would have, what could have.

It’s — it’s very difficult to go back and say that. I mean, obviously, you could logically say, that if you had a process that was ongoing, and you started mitigation earlier, you could have saved lives. Obviously, no one is going to deny that.

But what goes into those kinds of decisions is — is complicated. But you’re right. I mean, obviously, if we had, right from the very beginning, shut everything down, it may have been a little bit different.

But there was a lot of pushback about shutting things down back then.

Former Obama Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson spoke approvingly on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday about President Trump’s authorization of a deadly U.S. drone-fired missile attack against Iran Quds Force leader Major General Qassem Soleimani as he arrived at the Baghdad airport early Friday morning. Johnson, who also served as former general counsel for the Pentagon, was interviewed by Chuck Todd.

Johnson said, “If you believe everything that our government is saying about General Soleimani, he was a lawful military objective, and the president, under his constitutional authority as commander in chief, had ample domestic legal authority to take him out without an additional congressional authorization. Whether he was a terrorist or a general in a military force that was engaged in armed attacks against our people, he was a lawful military objective.”

A video clip was posted by the Trump campaign, as the rest of the media has so far ignored Johnson’s comments on Meet the Press.

Transcript via Meet the Press:

CHUCK TODD:

Jeh, before you were Homeland Security Secretary, you were counselor at the Defense Department.

JEH JOHNSON:

Correct.

CHUCK TODD:

So explain for viewers, why does Mike Pompeo keep saying terrorist? There is a legal reason he keeps saying the word terrorist, isn’t there?

JEH JOHNSON:

No, not necessarily. If you believe everything that our government is saying about General Soleimani, he was a lawful military objective, and the president, under his constitutional authority as commander in chief, had ample domestic legal authority to take him out without an additional congressional authorization. Whether he was a terrorist or a general in a military force that was engaged in armed attacks against our people, he was a lawful military objective. But that’s not the only question here. For a very long time, the Bush administration, the Obama administration, had been engaged in what we refer to now as shadow warfare with the Iranian government. And last Thursday night was what we refer to as a decapitation strike, where we’ve taken out a very high profile member of the Iranian government. That is a provocative, in your face act, where you kill a senior member of the Iranian government and you say, “Yes, I did it.” And I hope that this administration has carefully considered the second and third order of effects of that one very plain second order effect, which any foreign officer could predict is the reaction in Iraq. With the growing Shia political influence in that country —

CHUCK TODD:

Right.

JEH JOHNSON:

— we face the very real prospect that the Iraqi government will want us out of that country.

Johnson also spoke about a new DHS advisory:

CHUCK TODD: Well, we know what happened the last time. Jeh Johnson, very quickly, your former department put out a very alarming alert last night.

JEH JOHNSON: It was very candid.

CHUCK TODD: Very candid. The Iranians ability to cyber-attack us, could they — could they temporarily cripple cities?

JEH JOHNSON: We have to prepare for that very distinct possibility. The National Threat Advisory put out last night said that the Iranian government could strike with little or no notice, on a moment’s notice, and that Hezbollah has demonstrated the capability and intent to strike the homeland. That’s a very candid statement.

Johnson made similar comments about the President’s lawful authority to strike Soleiman (apparently off camera) to CBS Face the Nation host Margaret Brennan who quoted him in an interview Sunday morning with Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT):

SEN. MURPHY: Well, I don’t know any other way to describe it. This was the intentional execution of a high level official in a sovereign nation. Qassem Soleimani is an evil man. He has absolutely ordered the murder of hundreds of Americans. But he is a high level representative of a foreign government, a foreign government with a military that could- that could strike at American civilians and American service people. The question is, why didn’t the administration look at other means to try to stop this attack from happening? Reporting suggests that his own military leaders were shocked that the president chose an assassination versus more targeted strikes against other Iranian or Iranian proxy assets in the region.

MARGARET BRENNAN: Right. Which is why I thought it was notable when the secretary said that all cabinet members had agreed and top national security advisers. I want to ask you, because you- you’ve been critical of whether this was legal for the president to do this and specifically this authorization of military force debate. I spoke with the former Obama administration, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson. I’m sure you know him.

SEN. MURPHY: Yeah.

MARGARET BRENNAN: He used to be general counsel at the Pentagon. And he said this: “Direct engagement of a senior military official of another nation’s harder to justify under the AUMF,” which is your part of your argument. “But having said that, under existing Office of Legal Counsel opinions, it’s plain the president had constitutional authority to use lethal force against General Soleimani as vital national interests were implicated. Therefore, no congressional authorization was required.” That’s the former Pentagon lawyer, a Democrat. Why is he wrong?

SEN. MURPHY: So in this case, the president has the burden of explaining to the American public and to Congress why the strike against Qassem Soleimani was necessary to prevent future attacks against the United States. There is a general understanding that to prevent future attacks, imminent attacks, you can take action without Congress. The contention here is that by assassinating a high level Iranian official, that you are actually going to inspire and create more attacks against the United States not actually prevent those attacks. And so that–

MARGARET BRENNAN: But so they could argue though that–

SEN. MURPHY: –that’s the burden of proof that he has…

Johnson served as secretary of Homeland Security from December 2013 to January 2017, appointed by President Obama, who had previously appointed Johnson to be General Counsel for the Department of Defense where he served from February 2009 to December 2012.
