    Now that this woman's racist, divisive, white nationalist views have been made public, I expect she will soon have the endorsement of Donald Trump.

    Yeah, just like he won the popular vote, the government shutdown, the emergency declaration, the census citizenship question, the border wall funding, the housing discrimination lawsuits, the 1988 antitrust lawsuit, the 1990 defamation lawsuit, the 2009 Ocean Resort Baja Mexico lawsuits, the 2011 defamation lawsuit, the 2015 Univision breach-of-contract lawsuit, the housing discrimination lawsuits, the Trump University fraud lawsuits, the Trump Taj Mahal bankruptcy, the Trump Plaza Hotel bankruptcy, the.......

    Trump 'hereby' orders US business out of China. Can he do that?

    If you don't want to read this entire Washington Post article, I can summarize it for you: "No."

    The leaders of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the US and the UK – the "Group of Seven" – will take part in the G7 summit August 24-25 in Bierritz, France. Actually, it's more like a G6 summit plus Trump. Donald Trump wants to do everything his own way and sees cooperation with other nations as a sign of weakness. New York Times political analyst Peter Baker calls Trump "one of the biggest sources of global economic instability." Indeed. Engaging in trade wars, imposing tariffs which hurt Americans, attacking the Fed chairman as an "enemy" comparable to Xi Jinping, ordering American businesses to quit doing business with China (which he has no power to do), giving huge tax cuts to big corporations and the wealthiest Americans, allowing our national debt and our federal deficit to skyrocket, ignoring climate change, rolling back clean-air and clean-water protections and vowing to get coal miners back to work (as though it's 1840, not 2019) – our economy will not be able to survive another four years of Emperor Trump. Remember that. Four hundred thirty-seven days till Election Day.

    A gyrating economy and Trump's volatile approach to it raise alarms

    "Look, I have no idea if I'll be able to cut taxes, okay? And I have no idea how we'd be able to afford another round of tax cuts, okay? But if promising a tax cut will help me get re-elected, then I'm promising a tax cut, okay? After I'm re-elected, I'll break my promise just like I break all my other promises. My supporters won't care. They love me!"

    Trump's wild week of tax ideas continues with promise of 'major' middle-class tax cut if GOP sweeps in 2020

    Emperor Trump is turning into a maniacal, dangerous, reckless, power-mad, out-of-control dictator. And, oh yeah, he also continues to squawk his tiresome "fake news!" mantra.

    Trump claims he has 'absolute right' to order US companies out of China under 1977 International Emergency Economic Powers Act

    If Donald Trump wants his approval rating to soar, he could always emulate Richard Nixon and resign from office. He would never do that, though. He would forever be known as a "loser."

    Six polls and more than 6,000 interviews show Trump's approval rating dropping

    Trump explained he has "second thoughts about everything." Actually, his problem is that he seldom thinks at all.

    Trump expresses regret about escalating Chinese trade war, then reverses course and says he wishes he raised tariffs higher

    Fed Chairman Jay Powell and economists say Trump's tariffs and trade wars are increasing the likelihood of a recession. This weekend's G-7 summit in Biarritz is turning out just as we expected: Trump vs. the other 6. Trump is an isolationist who does not believe in cooperation, nor does he care about the interests of other countries. Why is he even at the summit?
