Donald Trump Renovating Mar-A-Lago For His Return, Melania Trump Looking At Florida Schools For Barron Trump
Even though Donald Trump has repeatedly denied his loss of the recent presidential election, it appears that he and his family are preparing to move out of the White House regardless. Aides are moving out of the White House, Trump’s apartment in the decadent Florida mansion is being renovated, and Melania Trump is even looking for a school for her son Barron in the area. “No matter what else is happening in the world, he is treated like royalty at Mar-a-Lago,” an inside source told People. “He loves to be here.” The Trump family owns properties along the east coast, and even a source from the ...
Mitt Romney proves (again) what a disgusting human being he really is as he criticizes Trump's COVID response (as FDA is on cusp of approving 2 vaccines in record time)
By Duncan Smith The only thing worse than a ‘news’ network broadcasting COVID-19 cases and deaths in real-time is repeatedly inviting on a political grifter and hack like Mitt Romney to bash President Donald Trump…over COVID-19. Even as the president’s administration is set to approve not one but two new coronavirus vaccines that were developed in record time under Trump’s “Operation Warp Speed,” this BS artist, Romney — who couldn’t win the presidency if he was running unopposed — has the audacity to claim the president is incompetent. Really? “This hasn’t been the focus of his rhetoric appar...

GOP On Edge As Trump Is Set To Hold Rally In Georgia For Senate Runoffs
Hopping off Air Force One and speaking from a podium, President Donald Trump will host a Georgia post-election rally early Saturday while attempting to influence the highly anticipated U.S. Senate runoff on Jan 5. Right now, the race for control of the Senate is a tossup, with two seats up for grabs in the runoff. Georgia Republicans have expressed concerns amid escalating statewide tensions, communicating skepticism about the party’s ability to retain control of the Senate. Some have also expressed apprehension over the impact of Trump’s visit to the Peach State. Neither of Georgia senators, ...
Court order, state GOP leadership effectively end Trump's dreams of legislative reversal of Pa.'s election results
PHILADELPHIA — If its fate had not been abundantly clear already, President Donald Trump’s dream of having Pennsylvania’s GOP-controlled legislature overturn the state’s election results received what appeared to be its final death blows Thursday with a late-night order from the U.S. Supreme Court and an unequivocal statement from the General Assembly’s Republican leadership that they had no intention of doing so. The Supreme Court order came in response to a request from one of the president’s top boosters in Congress, U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly (R., Pa.), who has asked the justices to declare the ...

GOP Georgia Election Official Gabriel Sterling Demands Trump Stop Inciting Violence: ‘It Has To Stop’
Amid the highly anticipated runoff, a top Georgia election official demand on Tuesday that President Donald Trump stop challenging election results and start condemning threats of violence, warning that the integrity of the state’s upcoming U.S. Senate runoff would be called into question. Last month, Trump filed a second Georgia ballot recount petition, refusing to concede the election, that he lost to Joe Biden by about 12,000 votes. State election official Gabriel Sterling demanded that the president stop further aggravating the political climate. “It has to stop,” Sterling said. “Mr. Presi...
Why Biden will find it hard to undo Trump's costly 'America first' trade policy
Biden says his Cabinet picks will help him restore American leadership in the world. Chandan Khanna/AFP via Getty Images Since becoming president-elect, Joe Biden has signaled that restoring America’s leadership on the world stage is among his highest priorities – an intention aptly demonstrated by his Cabinet picks. Biden’s nominees are “ready to lead the world, not retreat from it,” he said on Nov. 24. “America is back.” Perhaps nowhere is this return more urgent than in trade policy, a topic I follow closely as a scholar of international political economy. Over the past four years, Presiden...

How Hanukkah came to be an annual White House celebration
President Donald Trump speaks during a Hanukkah reception at the White House in 2019. AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta President Trump’s plan of holding an in-person Hanukkah reception at the White House on Dec. 9, despite concerns over the coronavirus, is getting much attention on social media. Some asked whether anyone would be reckless enough to attend, observing that an in-person party, amid the COVID-19 surge, could turn out to be another superspreader event. Others wondered who would be invited, recalling that President Trump, in the past, limited his invitation list to supporters, and why t...

Race against the clock to build Trump's border wall
Puerto Palomas (Mexico) (AFP) - Weeks before Donald Trump is due to leave office, workers are racing to build the hulking steel fence along the US-Mexican border that was a centerpiece of his presidency. But if their aim is to finish the wall snaking through the desert before Joe Biden moves into the White House in January, then it is almost certainly mission impossible. Instead the president-elect looks set to inherit a partially built barrier that stands as a testament to Trump's tough policies towards undocumented migrants he once described as criminals and "rapists." Biden is expected to h...
Trump loves to win but keeps losing election lawsuits
US President Donald Trump has managed to lose not just once to Democrat Joe Biden at the ballot box, but over and over again in courts across the country in a futile attempt to stay in power. The president and his allies continue to mount new cases, recycling the same baseless claims, even after Trump's own attorney general declared the Justice Department had uncovered no widespread fraud. "This will continue to be a losing strategy, and in a way it's even bad for him: He gets to re-lose the election numerous times," said Kent Greenfield, a professor at Boston College Law School. "The depths o...
Will Bunch: Absolute pardon power for a corrupt narcissist like Trump was a giant goof. How can we fix it?
Donald Trump is probably the world's worst Monopoly player — all his steel hotels on Boardwalk are already mortgaged to the hilt even before he passes "Go," right? — but it sure was a lucky roll of the dice when he scooped up the ultimate get-out-of-jail free card, which works for his pals, his kids, and maybe even himself. The Founding Fathers who designed this board game on the streets of Philadelphia in 1787 left a giant flaw, a Constitutional ticking time bomb that wouldn't go off for roughly 229 years. Now, with President Trump reportedly planning to blow up the board by issuing preemptiv...
