Former President Barack Obama unveiled his first round of 2020 endorsements on Monday, and he's got his eyes on Texas, at least at the local level.Obama is endorsing 27 Democratic candidates in Texas, including 19 for the state House, where Democrats need to win nine seats to grab the majority.

The former ...

Bill Gates debates Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 'tax the rich' policy

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates made some comments this week on the 'tax the rich' ideas making the rounds in America. Taxing the rich is fine, he said in an interview with The Verge, and "more progressive" taxes on the ultra rich are okay. Gates then went on to characterize Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as an 'extreme' politician who is missing the point by focusing on targeting high income brackets. AOC identifies as a Democratic socialist, and in January 2019 floated the idea of a 70 percent ...

Donald Trump’s legal team ran into trouble in court again Monday over the president’s habit of accurately describing his Muslim ban.
