    Democrats need a positive platform - not just anti-Trump sentiment - to win in this fall's midterm elections, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Monday. "You cannot just run against Donald Trump," the New York Democrat said. "It is the job of we Democrats to put together a strong, cohesive economic group of proposals aimed at the middle class and those struggling to get there." It was Trump's ability to connect with those voters, particularly working- and middle-class whites in the industrial midwest, that delivered him the presidency in 2016. But the president's poor approval ratings, Democrats' ability to flip...

I’m being nice.” As part of his plan, Trump said that the administration would accelerate...

"CPB grants represent a small share of the total funding for the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and National Public Radio (NPR), which primarily rely on private donations to fund their operations," it continues. "To conduct...

    The Education Department has told BuzzFeed News it won't investigate or take action on any complaints filed by transgender students who are banned from restrooms that match their gender identity, charting new ground in the Trump administration's year-long broadside against LGBT rights. It’s the first time officials have asserted this position publicly as an interpretation of law. No formal announcement has been made. For nearly a year, the Trump administration took a less clear stance, with officials saying they were studying the issue ...
