Donald Trump didn’t lie in his latest tweet, he just twisted the facts

Trump's administration has already delivered a barefaced lie about the physical attendance at his inauguration, and now he's attempting to twist the facts on his television ratings - twisted. which we all know is pretty much what Trump cares the most about in this world. Having spent his entire campaign boasting about his ability to drawn in huge crowds through his presence alone, Donald Trump is now refusing to face the fact that his inauguration didn't draw in the level of viewers he would have hoped for. Wall-to-wall coverage of Friday's event drew in an average of 30.6 million total viewers across the 12 broadcast and cable networks that provided live coverage for the day (via The Hollywood Reporter), which is 18 percent down from the nearly 38 million viewers who tuned in to...

It's customary that after the Inauguration ceremony, the new president enjoys a congressional luncheon. However, like most of the tone of this historic presidential campaign, this congressional luncheon was a bit different than previous years. Classiest Moment While it's normal for the president to give a speech at the event, it's rare that one of the people seated at a table is the person he defeated in the election. As the wife of former President Bill Clinton, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's presence at the luncheon was expected. When President Donald Trump took the podium, he immediately acknowledged the large elephant in the room. Unlike his campaign rhetoric towards his opponent in the election, Trump exhibited grace and humility towards the Clintons. He bega...

Pledging to empower America's "forgotten men and women," Donald Trump looked out over the crowd sprawled across the National Mall and painted a bleak picture of the nation he now leads, lamenting crime, shuttered factories and depleted American leadership. In his inaugural speech, he vowed to stir "new national pride," bring jobs back to the United States and "eradicate completely" Islamic terrorism. "From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land," Trump said in a 16-minute address, echoing one of the core messages of his improbable presidential campaign. "From this day forward, it's going to be only, 'America First."

Donald Trump tried to tell his wife where to sit at an inauguration event - and she completely ignored him and walked off. The awkward moment came shortly before Trump claimed his cabinet picks have “the highest IQ of any cabinet ever assembled” today at a luncheon kicking off his inauguration. He made the comments, which are without basis, to Republican party leaders at an event at the Trump Hotel in Washington DC.   There have also been questions about whether foreign dignitaries staying at the hotel would constitute a breach of the US constitutions emoluments clause, which bans office holders gaining profits from overseas. He began his remarks by thanking his wife, Melania, who he said had “put up with so much with all the fake news. Fake news, that’s what it is....

Vice President-elect Mike Pence certainly had a full plate during his time as Indiana governor, but he apparently managed to squeeze in time to schmooze with his constituents — even the youngest ones. State Rep. Randy Frye said that in April, his 11-year-old grandson Silas picked Mr. Pence to write about for a homework assignment on a famous Hoosier of students’ choice. [the_ad id="185"] One evening when Mr. Pence was at Mr. Frye’s home, the vice president-elect not only cooperated, but helped Silas complete the assignment, Mr. Frye said. Mr. Frye said he has a picture of them together with a worksheet. “That’s the kind of guy he is,” Mr. Frye said. “He’s got time for everyone, and when my grandson heard that Mike Pence was elected vice president, he told his mother, ‘My be...
Donald Trump’s 100 Day Executive Action Agenda

Donald Trump’s 100 Day Executive Action Agenda

Featured, Politics, Videos
New presidents emphasize 100-day priorities, but president-elect Donald J. Trump may likely has a 100-minute agenda. An early post-election action instructed transition managers to “develop a list of executive actions we can take on day one to restore our laws and bring back our jobs.” In today's Administrative State, unelected, purported experts govern decisions over everything from breath mint serving sizes to health care, energy and the Internet. And they pressed the accelerator during Barack Obama's final months. So count on Trump freezing Obama rules and regulations at the outset via executive action. But, will the federal government be larger or smaller after four years of Trump? A generation has passed since Congress last proposed serious downsizing of the federal bu...

Americans will have health insurance coverage once Obamacare is repealed and replaced, and "nobody is going to be dying on the streets," because of lack of coverage, President-elect Donald Trump promised in an interview airing Wednesday. healthcare "We're going to have a plan that's going to be great for people and it's going to be much less expensive, and you will be able to actually have something to say about who your doctor is and your plan," Trump told Fox News' Ainsley Earhardt in the pre-recorded interview for the "Fox and Friends" program. That will include covering Americans who can't afford insurance, said Trump, saying the plans would "probably have block grants of Medicaid back into the states and we will do things because, you know, there are people that can't af...

Vice President-elect Mike Pence doubled down Tuesday on President-elect Donald Trump’s pledge to upgrade the country’s ailing transportation system with a massive infrastructure package when he takes office. "I called [Trump] this afternoon to tell him I was coming by,” Pence said at the annual U.S. Conference of Mayors winter meeting. “In addition to urging me to send along greetings, he said, ‘Tell them we’re going to do an infrastructure bill — and it’s going to be big.'"

Why James Mattis is a popular choice for defence secretary

Featured, Politics
JAMES MATTIS, Donald Trump’s choice for secretary of defence, has held many titles in his long career in the American military. He has commanded front-line troops in Afghanistan, run a major NATO command, and overseen all American military personnel in the Middle East. But there is a new role that many appear eager to cast him in: saviour of American foreign policy in the Trump era. This sentiment was much in display at last week’s Senate hearings on the role of civilian control of the military. The hearing was called at the behest of Democrats, some of whom were irked by Republican efforts to expedite a waiver to a law that forbids retired generals from serving as secretary within seven years of wearing a uniform. Since the creation of the position of secretary of defence in 1947, ...
