Trump’s views about ‘crazy’ self-driving cars are at odds with his DOT

President Donald Trump is an automated-vehicle skeptic, a point of view that lies in stark contrast with agencies within his own administration, including the U.S. Department of Transportation . According to a recent scoop by Axios, Trump has privately said he thinks the autonomous-vehicle revolution is “crazy.” Trump’s point of view isn’t exactly surprising. His recent tweets about airplanes becoming too complex illustrates his Luddite leanings. Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fl...

Trump Goes After Biden For Getting ‘Tongue Tied’ Over Possible 2020 Run

President Donald Trump weighed in on former Vice President Joe Biden’s boast that he has “the most progressive record of anybody running” at a speech Saturday, despite having yet to announce whether he will launch a third run for the White House. Joe Biden got tongue tied over the weekend when he was unable to properly deliver a very simple line about his decision to run for President. Get used to it, another low I.Q. individual! — Donald J.

Months after Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) death, President Donald Trump on Saturday and Sunday took pot shots at McCain on Twitter over his role in handing off the so-called “Steele Dossier” to the FBI.

President Of The United States Complains About Saturday Night Live, Again

Trump Urges GOP To ‘Play Along With The Game’ Of Releasing Mueller Report

President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday that he told Republicans to vote for a non-binding resolution to release the Mueller report because it “makes us all look good and doesn’t matter.” On the recent non-binding vote (420-0) in Congress about releasing the Mueller Report, I told leadership to let all Republicans vote for transparency.

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...

Trump Tweets About ‘Jexodus’ Morning After New Zealand Massacre

President Donald Trump tweeted about the “Jexodus,” or alleged exodus of Jews from the Democratic party, Friday morning while New Zealand grappled with a devastating massacre apparently motivated by religious hate.

Vulnerable 2020 Senate Republicans Stick With Trump On Border Declaration

A dozen Senate Republicans voted to end President Trump’s emergency declaration on Thursday. But those with the most to lose from Trump’s unpopularity stood by their man. Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) was the only one of the Senate Republicans who face potentially tough 2020 reelection races broke with Trump on the vote. Sens. Cory Gardner (R-CO), Martha McSally (R-AZ), Thom Tillis (R-NC), David Perdue (R-GA), John Cornyn (R-TX) and Joni Ernst (R-IA) all voted to protect his emergency declaration....

"... based on unofficial acts allegedly committed by him before he assumed office. The Court expressly cautioned in that decision that different concerns, including the Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution, might influence the result if such a case were brought against the President in state court.

More Republicans Cross Furious Trump On Border Emergency Declaration

Trump Squeezes Skittish 2020 Senate Republicans On Emergency Declaration

Damned if you do, tweeted at if you don’t. President Trump’s continued pressure on Republicans to stand with him on his emergency declaration and rejection of a GOP compromise has put those facing reelection in an impossible position — forcing them to choose between crossing their grudge-holding party leader or risking blowback from voters in their home states. Trump has gone on the warpath against the Republicans who disagree with him on the emergency declaration, increasingly attacking them ...

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 […]
