Beth Bendheim (VA): ‘I Fear Trump Will Be Re-Elected’
Prior to working in the financial industry, Bendheim held public relations and marketing positions in the sports world, including with a North American cycling race originally sponsored by Donald Trump and known as the Tour de Trump. She was also the development director for the Jewish day school in Richmond. Bendheim was active in the 2018 Virginia congressional campaign of Democrat Abigail Spanberger, who defeated incumbent Republican Dave Brat.
Is it possible for Democrats and Republicans to ever agree on the facts around the president’s actions?
No, I think this country is too divided right now.
Did the impeachment hearings change your views about whether or not the president should be impeached and removed from office?
No, I trust the government employees and believe they did the right thing coming forward.
Do the impeachment proceedings hurt or improve Trump’s chances for re-election?
Regretfully, I believe his base is too strong and will support him either way, and I fear Trump will be re-elected.
Anything else you’d like to share on the topic of impeachment?
The GOP needs to get a spine.
Are truthfulness and honesty key qualities for you in deciding which presidential candidate to support?
Yes, those are core values that all elected leaders should have.
Is there anything else you would like to share with us?
I believe going after a whistleblower is very dangerous. Those wishing to defend our country should be able to speak with no reprisals from those they “turn in.”
