Facing no serious primary opponent of his own — at least so far — Trump is esta...

Money in the bill for border barriers, about $1.4 billion, is far below the $5.7 billion Trump insisted he needed to build a wall along t...

He had never seen poverty like that. He saw a family of eight living in a tar paper shack, farming on depleted soil,” Paul S...
