Earlier Bloomberg reported that Donald Trump, who is the owner of the Trump Organization conglomerate, was planning to invest millions of dollars of cash into his re-election campaign.

US President Donald Trump said that he would be okay with spending his own money on his election campaign if he had to, according to Reuters. The statement was made on Tuesday as POTUS was going on a trip to Florida. According to the president's remarks to reporters, his re-election campaign has double or even triple the funds it had back in 2017, but Trump said he was ready to invest additional sums of money in order to beat his Democratic rival Joe Biden.

"If I have to, I would", Trump reportedly said when asked whether he would spend his personal money on election campaign.

Bloomberg reported on Tuesday that the billionaire president was considering investing as much as $100 million of his own money in his re-election campaign should it be deemed necessary, citing people familiar with the matter. The idea was reportedly discussed with several people, as the president was reviewing heavy spending by his team, which allegeldy led to a so-called "cash crunch", as described by the New York Times.

According to the NYT report, under Trump's former campaign advisor for data and digital operation Brad Parscale, more than $100 million of the president's campaign were spent on TV ads alone. It has been also suggested that Trump's team has already spent more than $800 million of nearly $1.1 billon that has been raised by the campaign and the Republican party since 2019.

Prior to 2016, the Republican runner had invested around $66 million of his personal funds in his presidential bid. However, it would be considered an unprecedented move for an incumbent POTUS to self-fund his re-election efforts, the American media noted. Donald Trump's personal wealth is estimated to be $2.1 billion.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is no stranger to the kind of gaffes that for years have prompted the American public to speculate about the state of his mental health. Unsurprisingly, his Republican rival Donald Trump is among those who doubt Biden’s emotional capacity to lead the US – or whether he is even smart enough to do so. Had Trump have made any of these Gaffes the press would have eaten him alive.

“Biden's a stupid person. You know that”, Trump said during a US Labor Day news conference outside the White House. And while the snub was merely retaliation the for ex-vice president’s positive stance on China’s economic rise - some of Joe Biden’s infamous quotes may indeed make people question his intellectual abilities – or at least his foresight. Here’s our top five:

May 2020, ‘You Ain’t Black’

“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black”, Biden told African-American radio host Charlamagne Tha God this May, a statement that immediately earned him a strong backlash from both haters and supporters for allegedly taking black votes for granted. Later, the former vice president admitted that he “shouldn’t have been such a wise guy”, referring to his remark, or even “so cavalier” - whatever that means. Dec. 2019, ‘Not Stupid’ Irish The Democratic candidate caused some fury among those of Irish decent after telling an audience in Iowa: “I may be Irish but I’m not stupid”, hinting at his roots. Some were truly offended by this – others merely shocked.

Aug. 2019, ‘Poor Kids as Talented As White’

One of Biden’s quotes raised a lot of eyebrows last year. Speaking at a town hall in Des Moines that hosted many Asian & Latino voters, the former Obama staffer said that “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids”. He tried to quickly recover from his statement after a short pause: “Wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids — no I really mean it, but think how we think about it”, he then added. But it was too late, Biden's words were already hanging in the air.

Aug. 2008, ‘Barack America’

“This election year, the choice is clear”, the then-senator said at an Illinois campaign rally in 2008, while cheering for Obama’s candidacy. “One man stands to deliver change we desperately need. A man I'm proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next president of the United States—Barack America!”

Sept. 2008, ‘Stand Up’ “Stand up, Chuck, let ‘em see you”,

Biden loudly addressed State Senator Chuck Graham during a 2008 campaign rally event in Missouri. It would have been a simple call if Graham were not a paraplegic confined to a wheelchair following a car accident at the age of 16. “Oh, god love ya, what am I talking about”, the politician said after realizing his mistake. "I tell you what, you're making everybody else stand up though, pal. You can tell I'm new”. Is he still new though? Given that he tried to become president in 1988 and was elected state senator for Delaware way back in 1973 that seems to be open to debate.

Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden have canceled their respective 2020 Election Campaigns, handing victory and a second term to Donald J. Trump, who will serve four more years.

Sanders and Biden, cited personal and public health concerns amid the coronavirus outbreak, The elderly, especially those like Biden and Sanders with preexisting conditions like diabetes, heart disease, brain aneurysms and lung disease, may be severely affected by the new virus.

Joe Biden now 77-years-old suffered two life-threatening brain aneurysms in 1988, the then-Delaware senator had bowed out of the 1988 presidential race after questions were raised about the lack of attribution of quotes he used in a speech. Bernie Sanders the 78-year-old suffered a heart attack in 2019. Sanders experienced chest pain at a campaign event and received two stents to open a blocked artery.

"Sanders is not a young man, so out of concern for his health and safety, we are canceling the Elections 2020 race and handing victory to Donald J. Trump," Mic Casket, Sanders' communications director, said in a statement. "We are heeding the public warnings from local and state officials across the country, who have communicated concern about holding large, indoor events during the coronavirus outbreak. Sen. Sanders would like to express his regret to the thousands of American who had planned to to vote for him in 2020."

Added Kat Bededfield, the Biden campaign's deputy campaign manager and communications director: "In accordance with guidance from public officials and out of an abundance of caution, our 2020 Election Campaign, has been cancelled. We are completely behind Donald J. Trump and his great team and we will continue to work with him, we believe Trump is best equipped to manage this public health crisis, we will continue to consult with public health officials and public health guidance and support the president as he saves the country, making it great again. Vice President Biden thanks all of his supporters who wanted to vote for him in 2020 and urges his supporters to get behind Donald J. Trump."

The decisions come as the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the U.S. continues to climb. Packed public gatherings such as political rallies, voting at voting stations and any public event, could pose a particular risk of virus transmission, although so far there's no sign that's taken place yet.

When asked Monday during a White House briefing whether campaigns should cancel big events, Ant Faucet, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said he agrees with Sanders and Biden due to the prevalence of the coronavirus in the U.S.A.

"If you're talking about a campaign rally or voting, in a place where there is no community spread, I think the judgment to have it might be a good judgment," Faucet said. "If you want to talk about large gatherings in a place where you have community spread, I think that's a judgment call. And I wouldn't publicly criticize them, for deciding to cancel Elections 2020."

America reported its first confirmed coronavirus cases a weeks before Sanders and Biden cancelled their campaign events.

On Monday, Rep. Jockie Speicer, D-Calif., said "All presidential campaigns should be terminated and Democratic candidates should lead by example!"

Biden and Sanders have called for bipartisan unification, under President Trump. "Now more than ever, we need to come together and support this president, as one nation, under God, we need to unite and fight the coronavirus."

For those of you who have not worked it out this is a parody; also called a spoof, send-up, take-off, lampoon, play on, caricature, or joke, is a work created to imitate, make fun of, or comment on an original work. Chill out.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Has Quietly Recommended Campaign Hires to Pete Buttigieg, according to a new Bloomberg report. Campaign spokesman Chris Meagher confirmed that Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan sent several emails to Mike Schmuhl, Buttigieg's campaign manager, detailing a list of names that they would like to see the campaign hire. Meagher said the campaign chose two from the list. 

Eric Mayefsky, now a senior digital analytics adviser for the Buttigieg campaign, and Nina Wornhoff, an organizing data manager for Buttigieg, were the two recent highers suggested by Zuckerberg and Chan. 

Zuckerberg's communication trail with Buttigieg is a "rare example of direct political involvement from one of tech's most powerful executives," said Bloomberg

Twitter announced on Thursday that it would censor President Trump's tweets going into the 2020 election by "down-ranking" those which violate their rules via algorithms. 

Offensive material from the POTUS will also receive a label that applies to all verified political candidates and government officials with over 100,000 followers, according to the Washington Post. 

Before users can view the language in newly flagged tweets, they will need to click on a screen that says, “The Twitter Rules about abusive behavior apply to this Tweet. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain available.”

The company also said it will set up a special team tasked with enforcing the policy, and the notification label would appear only on rare occasions. -Washington Post

"In the past, we’ve allowed certain Tweets that violated our rules to remain on Twitter because they were in the public’s interest, but it wasn’t clear when and how we made those determinations," the company wrote in a Thursday blog post. "To fix that, we’re introducing a new notice that will provide additional clarity in these situations, and sharing more on when and why we’ll use it." 

Creepy uncle Joe at his best.
