Trump Abruptly Changes His Tune: ‘There Should Be No Mueller Report’

President Donald Trump, yet to master a Twitter thread, buried a serious change of tone in his usual angry word salad about Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the Democrats: “…there should be no Mueller report.” So, if there was knowingly & acknowledged to be “zero” crime when the Special Counsel was appointed, and if the appointment was made based on the Fake Dossier (paid for by Crooked Hillary) and now disgraced Andrew McCabe (he & all stated no crime), then the Special Counsel……. — Donal...

GOP Senators Interrupt Trump’s Family Dinner To Change His Mind On Emergency

Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Ben Sasse (R-NE) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) busted in on President Donald Trump’s family dinner in his private residence Wednesday night to craft a last-minute out for Trump as a bicameral rebuke on his national emergency declaration becomes more and more likely.

Americans Can Do Two Things at the Same Time

Surely we have heard and seen enough by now that any lingering “optimism” about Trump governing as an anti-interventionist in foreign affairs has totally evaporated. What Trump promised in foreign policy terms in 2016, and what he instead delivered, are two radically different things—the same could be said of Obama, the so-called peace candidate of […]

Trump Claims Cohen Wrote ‘Love Letters To Trump’ Book, Demands Congress Subpoena It

Back in the White House, President Trump used his Friday morning to make his feelings about his former lawyer’s testimony before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday abundantly clear.

US House passes bill rejecting Donald Trump's border wall emergency

In a stinging rebuke to President Donald Trump, the House of Representatives on Tuesday brushed aside veto threats and passed legislation to terminate the emergency he declared at the US-Mexico border in order to build a wall there. By a vote of 245-182, the House passed the resolution, setting up a vote in the Republican-controlled Senate where the resolution's chances were slimmer, but seemed to be improving. While passage was a victory for Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the tally ...

Trump calls for 6G cellular technology, because why the heck not

We’ve been covering the battle for 5G between the U.S. and China for some time. The White House has made 5G technology a national security priority, and industry leaders have followed up that charge with additional investment in the fledgling technology. What 5G exactly is though remains mostly a mystery. Is it new bandwidth? Edge computing? Decentralized cloud processing technology? Autonomous vehicles? Something else? I get pitched a dozen stories a day about the “5G revolution” and no one can...

Why Donald Trump is set to declare a national emergency to build his wall - and what will happen next

Donald Trump is poised to declare a national emergency in an attempt to fund his US-Mexico border wall without congressional approval. The White House said the US president would sign a spending bill that would avert a government shutdown, but which only provides $1.375 billion for border barriers or fencing - far from the $5.7 billion Mr Trump wants. "President Trump will sign the government funding bill, and as he has stated before, he will also take other executive action - including a nation...
