House Rep.

Katie Porter (D-CA) isn't part of "the squad." That's the four-woman group of freshman progressives of color who were attacked this week by President Donald Trump.

But according to CNN, that doesn't mean she's not a thorn in Trump's side.

Porter has emerged as a viral star when it comes to how banks and the government treat the working poor.

She's also a whiz at puncturing Trump's claims about the economy, and has asked top officials do basic math under oath.

Donald Trump suggests delay in polls, cites mail-in voting 'fraud' l Key details

US President Donald Trump on Thursday asked for the US Elections to be delayed. "With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA," Trump wrote on Twitter. "Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???" Trump said. The date of the presidential election — the Tuesday after the first Monday in November in every fourth year — is enshrined in federal law and would require an act of Congress to change, including agreement from the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives. One Republican governor, Chris Sununu of New Hampshire, quickly shot down Trump's idea: “Make no mistake: the election will happen in New Hampshire on November 3rd. End of story. Our voting system in NH is secure, safe, and reliable. We have done it right 100% of the time for 100 years – this year will be no different."
