As commander in chief, President Trump has said controlling the southern border is a genuine national security issue and that failure would mean Americ...

Government shutdown breaks record, with no end in sight

Trump, holed up in the White House with Congress adjourned for the weekend, warned of a much lengthier impasse and blamed the Democrats. "We will be out for a long time unless the Democrats come back from their 'vacations' and get back to work," he tweeted. Democrats say Trump shut the government in a "temper tantrum" by refusing to sign bipartisan funding legislation last year that did not include money for his wall.

U.S. Government Shutdown Hits Record Length With No End Seen

The White House scuttled efforts to reach a deal on Capitol Hill on Thursday, and Trump’s budget team is drawing up contingency plans for a shutdown that extends through the end of February, according to an administration official. About 800,000 federal workers missed their pay for the first time Friday -- at least some receiving pay stubs for $0.00 -- as unions sued the government for requiring their members to work without pay. Trump said Friday that he planned to sign a bill guaranteeing th...

Trump Repeatedly Undermines Loyal Soldier Pence In The Shutdown Fight

WASHINGTON (AP) — Progress made, said one. Not so, said the other. We’ll meet again, said one. Waste of time, said the other. Such has been the life lately of Mike Pence, the loyal soldier dispatched by President Donald Trump to lead negotiations over the partial government shutdown. The vice president has been one of the administration’s most visible emissaries during the shutdown fight, meeting with lawmakers, sitting for interviews and leading staff-level talks. But he’s been repeatedly — a...

Trump’s ‘trifecta of ineptitude’ on fires

When I got on the conference call with Gov. Gavin Newsom, along with six other California editorial writers Thursday afternoon, I was thinking back to newspaper photographs from the aftermath of the Camp fire. The then-governor-elect was helping tour President Donald Trump through the devastated town of Paradise. As they walked through Paradise lost, the many images shot that day by photojournalists showed a somewhat astounding — and then again, very humanly understandable — amount of touchy-fee...

GOP rejected Obama’s executive reach but accepts Trump’s

By LISA MASCARO | AP Congressional Correspondent WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama stunned Republicans when he bypassed Congress and — relying on what he called his pen and his phone — used executive powers to enact his agenda, including protecting millions of young immigrants from deportation. Now, with President Donald Trump proposing an even more dramatic end-run around Congress to build his promised border wall with Mexico, many Republicans are uneasily cheering him on.

Critical Context for the FBI Probe of Trump

So many things have happened over the last two-plus years that simply defy belief that it can be essential to review them, to see what light they shed on new developments when arranged in order.
