Romney: Trump will be reelected in 2020

Featured, Politics
DEER VALLEY, UTAH — Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney bluntly predicted here on Thursday evening that President Donald Trump would win reelection in 2020. Addressing a group of major GOP donors, Romney — who bitterly collided with Trump during the 2016 campaign and implored his party to nominate someone else — also said Trump would easily capture the Republican Party’s 2020 nomination. He said Trump’s political fortunes would be bolstered by a pair of factors: an improving economy and the likelihood that Democrats would choose an outside-the-mainstream candidate. “I think President Trump will be re-nominated by my party easily, and I think he’ll be reelected solidly,” Romney said. “I think that not just because of the strong economy and because people are increasingly see

How lawmakers have landed an endorsement from Trump

Rep. Dan Donovan (R-N.Y.) was flying back to Washington, D.C., from Long Island on Air Force One on a Wednesday evening last month when President Trump suddenly asked about his tough primary fight against ex-Rep. Michael Grimm. Moments later, Trump pledged his full support and said that an endorsement would come soon. The next week, the president tapped out two consecutive tweets warning New Yorkers that voting for Grimm, who served seven months in prison for a felony tax fraud conviction, could cost Republicans the competitive seat — and its eight-year House majority — in November. It was a huge political gift for Donovan, who won Trump’s endorsement despite his votes against the Republican tax-cut law and legislation to repeal and replace ObamaCare. Donovan’s cellphone immedi

President Trump's allies and legal experts faced new questions on Sunday about the legal ramifications of the revelation that the president dictated a letter about a 2016 meeting between his campaign aides and a Russian lawyer, even as his lawyers argue he can't obstruct justice in the special counsel's probe. "Jay Sekulow said time and time again directly into the faces of the American people on television — Sarah [Huckabee] Sanders did the same thing, and said in no uncertain terms ... they said the president had nothing to do with that statement by Donald Trump Jr. and didn't draft it, didn't sign off on it," former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said on CNN's "State of the Union." "And it turns out that is completely untrue," he said. Bharara — who was fired by

Trump Attacks FBI, Justice Department for Failing To Disclose Manafort Probe

Featured, Politics
President Donald Trump came down hard on the Justice Department and the FBI on Sunday, criticizing them for failing to tell him that Paul Manafort, who was named Trump campaign chairman in 2016, was being “secretly investigated.” Trump tapped Manafort to lead his campaign in June 2016, but the longtime GOP operative was forced to step down in August due to revelations that surfaced regarding his prior business dealings with the government in Ukraine, according to The Hill. The FBI is believed to have surveiled Manafort both before and after the election as part of an investigation that was originally launched in 2014. In a pair of Sunday morning tweets, Trump said that had he known about the FBI’s interest in Manafort, he never would have named him campaign chairman. “As only o

After pardoning political allies, Trump quietly denies clemency for 180 others

WASHINGTON — President Trump has denied clemency for 180 people who had applied for pardons and commutations through formal Justice Department channels— even as he's short-circuited that process to pardon political allies. The denials, decided last week, represent the first movements in the Justice Department's clemency caseload since Trump was inaugurated last year, according to the Office of the Pardon Attorney. Among those denied clemency: Anthony Calabrese, a 57-year-old reputed mob hit man from Chicago convicted of three robberies and sentenced to 62 years in prison. He had requested compassionate release after being diagnosed with terminal cancer. One White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity because officials were not authorized to comment publicly, said the denial

The FBI Raids on Trump’s Attorney Are Bad News for Trump

Monday’s FBI raids on Michael Cohen’s office, home and hotel room are the clearest sign yet that the president’s longtime attorney is in serious legal jeopardy. They also represent yet another threatening development facing Donald Trump after more than a year of investigations into his campaign and presidency—perhaps the most direct danger yet. No wonder he’s lashing out wildly—calling the raids “a disgraceful situation” and, absurdly, “an attack on our country.” The evidence sought by investigators reportedly relates to bank fraud and campaign finance violations, both of which primarily point to one thing. Cohen apparently used a home equity credit line to borrow the $130,000 he paid Stormy Daniels for her silence just weeks before the 2016 election. If Cohen lied to obtain credit f

President Donald Trump delivered a Twitter attack on “fake news” Sunday as he rejected any claims that he cannot find a lawyer to represent him amid special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation in the Trump campaign’s possible connections to Russia. Trump’s tweets came even as attorney Jay Sekulow, who is part of Trump’s legal team, announced that attorneys Joseph diGenova and Victoria Toensing would not be joining his legal team, The Washington Post reported. Sekulow had announced last week that the two would be added to the staff of lawyers working with Trump. Trump said in his tweets that he has no problem finding a lawyer to represent him. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/977872899792089088 https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/977875057572745216 “Many l

The rally, which took place on Saturday, March 10, 2018, roared with Trump supporters who were not disappointed by the President Trump’s message or blunt delivery style. During his nearly 75-minute speech, Trump addressed America’s drug problem and pointed a finger at drug dealers who aren’t punished severely enough for their crimes and the

President Trump on Monday claimed he would have run into a Florida high school to prevent a gunman from carrying out this month's mass shooting. "You don't know until you test it, but I really believe I'd run in there even if I didn't have a weapon,” Trump told a gathering of governors at the White House. "And I think most of the people in this room would have done that, too."   The president was doubling down on his criticism of an armed sheriff’s deputy who did not confront the shooter at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where 17 people were killed earlier this month. "They weren’t exactly Medal of Honor winners, alright?" Trump said. "The way they performed was frankly disgusting.” Trump also told the governors he ate lunch last weekend with leaders of the National Rifle

President Trump on Monday followed other Republican leaders in questioning why the Obama administration “failed to act” on the intelligence that Russia’s meddling in U.S. politics began in 2014. “Obama was President up to, and beyond, the 2016 Election,” Trump tweeted. “So why didn’t he do something about Russian meddling?” https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/965676314576543744 A federal grand jury on Friday indicted 13 Russians and three Russian companies for allegedly interfering in the 2016 presidential election. The indictments are part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Moscow. Trump throughout the weekend often took to Twitter to address the indictment, claiming in three separate tweets that there was "no
