LANSING, Mich. — President Donald Trump's campaign isn't feeling optimistic about winning the state of Michigan again in the 2020 election.

"Politico" spoke with campaign sources who expect democratic turnout to be much higher than it was in 2016 when President Trump won the state by a little less than 11,000 votes.

Aides say the Trump campaign will keep pumping resources into Michigan, but they admit his polling does not look good here in the state.

In regards to the allegations that President Trump strong-armed the Ukrainian president, Michigan U.S. Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin had something to say.

"That is a really striking allegation and if that's true, I think we're in a different moment mean as a national security professional, as a CIA officer, that kind of thing goes so beyond the pale of what is acceptable for our own national security," Slotkin said.

An intelligence community whistle-blower sounded alarms about the allegations after an alleged call where President Trump pressured Ukraine exchange for a military aid package.

Congressional Democrats have scaled up their calls for impeachment following these allegations.

Congresswoman Slotkin added that if the allegations are true, then we are in a "new era" and "congress should exercise its full authority on those issues."

The director of National Intelligence is expected to speak to congress about all of this on Thursday.
