Reports: Trump May Make Public Offer To Dems For Border Wall Money

President Donald Trump may offer his support for certain Democratic policy goals in exchange for border wall funds, CNN and Axios reported Friday and Saturday, respectively. Congressional Democrats have insisted that Trump re-open the government before any such negotiations, but according to the reports, Trump may offer the policy concessions in a statement from the White House Saturday afternoon, one that he hyped in a tweet Friday. Key aspects of the reports clash somewhat, though: CNN repor...

Hours after U.S. troops killed in Syria, Pence says Islamic State defeated

Pence did not mention the attack in his address to 184 chiefs of U.S. diplomatic missions who gather annually in Washington from around the world to discuss foreign policy strategy. "The caliphate has crumbled and ISIS has been defeated," Pence told the U.S. ambassadors and other senior American diplomats, referring to Islamic State. In separate statements later, both the White House and Pence condemned the attack and expressed sympathy for the deaths of the U.S. personnel.

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...

Donald Trump's sweet treats fail to convince Democrats as wall meeting ends in acrimony

Donald Trump was on Thursday heading to the border with Mexico to step up pressure on funding for the wall after his latest efforts to end the government shutdown ended in further acrimony. Mr Trump handed out sweets to leading Democrats as he sought their support for the wall in a meeting in the White House on Wednesday night, but the president allegedly flew into a "tantrum", slamming the table and walking out when opposition leaders refused his demands. Mr Trump tweeted shortly after that the...

President Trump says he needs to deal with Democratic leaders to end partial government shutdown

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump held out little hope Sunday that another round of talks between top aides and congressional staff would produce meaningful progress toward ending the partial government shutdown, seeming to undercut his team by saying he needed to deal directly with Democratic leaders. “Ultimately, it’s going to be solved by the principals,” Trump told reporters at the White House before leaving for staff meetings at Camp David as the shutdown headed into its third week. A sec...

Going Great

A very unpretty picture here in the Post of the President’s efforts to negotiate an end to the three-week government shutdown. The White House is making a big play of Vice President Pence working through the weekend in what they claim are negotiations. But the President hasn’t actually given Pence the authority to discuss specific numbers of even specific proposals. And this is compounded by the fact that no one would put much stock in such offers even if Pence were nominally empowered to make t...

Top Trump officials may receive pay raises while government workers remain unpaid

The Washington Post reports that without legislation to continue a pay-cap it appears senior Trump officials including Vice-President Pence will receive pay raises. The raises appear to be an intended consequence of the shutdown: When lawmakers failed to pass bills on Dec. 21 to fund multiple federal agencies, they allowed an existing pay freeze to lapse. Congress enacted a law capping pay for top federal executives in 2013 and renewed it each year. The raises will occur because that cap will...

White House official says it’s ‘very possible’ the shutdown stretches into 2019

WASHINGTON — A top White House official warned Sunday that it’s “very possible” the partial government shutdown stretches into the new year and that how quickly numerous shuttered Cabinet departments and agencies resume doing the people’s business is up to Congress. “The ball is in the Senate’s court,” acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said. Senate Democrats, who oppose funding for President Donald Trump’s promised border wall, contend government could reopen immediately if Trump d...

Trump’s Wall Shutdown Likely To Last Several Days

WASHINGTON (AP) — The federal government is expected to remain partially closed past Christmas Day in a protracted standoff over President Donald Trump’s demand for money to build a border wall with Mexico. With Trump’s insistence on $5 billion for the wall and negotiations with Democrats in Congress far from a breakthrough, even a temporary measure to keep the government running while talks continued seems out of reach until the Senate returns for a full session Thursday. From coast to coast...

The 2018 Golden Dukes Awards Nominees Are Here!

When it comes to scandals, 2018 was a doozy. Between the expansive Russia probe, the near-constant cabinet secretary snafus, and a wild midterm election, it’s hard to keep track of all the muck. And so, as we do every year, we’ve rounded up some of the best instances of corruption, stupidity and craziness for the 12th Annual Golden Duke Awards! The awards are named after former Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham, as Josh recounted last week. Duke Cunningham revolutionized corruption in his time, an...

WH Had Press Release Announcing Ayers As Chief Of Staff Drafted Before He Said No

The White House had a press release announcing Vice President Chief of Staff Nick Ayers as President Trump’s pick to replace soon-departing Chief of Staff John Kelly drafted before Ayers ultimately declined the offer on Sunday, according to The New York Times. Seen as the top, and only contender, for the post, Trump reportedly wanted Ayers appointment to be announced “as soon as possible,” in the Times words. But Trump and Ayers could not come to an agreement on the conditions of Ayers appoin...

Trump Considers Several Candidates To Replace Kelly, Including Mulvaney, Meadows

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is weighing at least four people to serve as his next chief of staff, after plans for an orderly succession for departing John Kelly fell through. The high-profile hiring search comes at a pivotal time as the president looks to prepare his White House for the twin challenges of securing his re-election and fending off inquiries once Democrats gain control of the House next year.

By ZEKE MILLER WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s top pick to replace chief of staff John Kelly, Nick Ayers, is no longer expected to fill the role. Ayers, who is chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence, was seen as the favorite for the job when Trump announced Saturday that Kelly would leave around year’s end.

Mexico's great gamble: 'Trump plays poker, but Lopez Obrador plays chess'  

It has been the strangest of courtships, between the ultimate unlikely couple. On one side sits Donald Trump, the bombastic and erratic “America First” nationalist who seized the White House from the gilded realm of Trump Tower. On the other Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, a veteran Left-winger who started his political career sleeping on the floor of mud huts in impoverished rural Mexico, before rising to challenge big oil companies and fight for a global compact of social justice. They have excha...

American intelligence agencies have concluded that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the killing, according to a U.S. official. The Saudi government has denied that claim. Trump called CIA Director Gina Haspel and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo from Air Force One as he flew to California to view wildfire dam...

Trump, Pence Dismiss NYT Report That Trump Questions Pence’s Loyalty

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence on Saturday dismissed a Friday New York Times report that Trump is increasingly questioning Pence’s loyalty. Trump, the Times reported, has questioned Pence’s loyalty so often “that he has alarmed some of his advisers.” Not so, Trump and Pence protested. “No I don’t question his loyalty at all,” Trump told reporters Saturday morning, according to a pool report. “He is 100 percent loyal.” He called the Times’ report “phony” and complained th...
