Trump Defends His Middle East Policy
推特 Twitter by Trump Oct 09, 2019

IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY! We went to war under a false & now disproven premise, WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION. There were NONE! Now we are slowly & carefully bringing our great soldiers & military home. Our focus is on the BIG PICTURE! THE USA IS GREATER THAN EVER BEFORE!

Impeach Trump, Repeatedly
纽约时报 the New York Times by Charles Blow Oct 09, 2019

When the Democratic leadership was finally forced to formally back an impeachment inquiry, they faced a choice: focus broadly on all of Donald Trump’s corruption and unfitness, which could drag on for a long time, or focus narrowly on the new revelations about Trump and Ukraine and do so quickly. They chose the latter.

Mulvaney sidelined as Trump’s impeachment crisis rages
美国政治新闻网站 politico.com By NANCY COOK and GABBY ORR 10/09/2019 05:02 AM EDT

Mick Mulvaney has gone noticeably quiet over the past week, just as the president’s impeachment fight picks up.

英语政治和媒体词典 Dictionary of Politics & Media

purple state  紫色州

Meaning
a US state where around half the people vote Democrat and around half the people vote Republican.(Cambridge)

在美国选举版图上,purple state (紫色州)是指“摇摆州”,政治用语。它指有些在选举前摇摆不定,有可能是蓝色(投民主党);有可能是红色,支持共和党。紫色州有时在选举地图上显示为灰色,而不是紫色。

每次选举,紫色州都会发生各不相同的情况。当选举真正发生时,他们有时摇摆成为蓝色(民主党)或红色(共和党)。但在决定之前,它们仍为紫色。

通常,在选举版图上显示为紫色的州包括俄亥俄州,佛罗里达州和内华达州。在许多情况下,北卡罗来纳州,爱荷华州或科罗拉多州等州有可能被认为是紫色。

Citation
Is purple America really disappearing? A recent analysis of how America’s 3,113 counties voted in 2016 suggest it may be, revealing deepening electoral majorities of people with similar political beliefs than past presidential elections.

This polarization seems to confirm the anecdotal experiences of many people, who report they are increasingly living among like-minded neighbors. Indeed, in the months since the November election, political viewpoints appear only to have solidified, further erasing the prospect of a "purple" middle ground between a "blue" left and a "red" right.
