    President Donald Trump said Saturday that the New York Times should retract a story claiming he was questioning Vice President Mike Pence’s loyalty. “Mike Pence is 100 percent,” Trump said. “Not even a doubt about it in my mind. He’s been a trooper. … I could not be happier, and I don’t question his loyalty at all,” Trump added about the story as he left the White House for a trip to visit the wildfire devastation in California. Trump ridiculed the reporters of the article for not asking him for a comment. “How do you do a story like that?”...

    Vice President Pence maintained in an interview with Hill.TV on Friday that Republicans will keep control of the House in next week's midterm elections. "I think we're going to expand our majority in the United States Senate, and I think we're going to hold our Republican majority in the House of Representatives," Pence told Hill.TV's Buck Sexton. "But that being said, there is certainly common ground in areas that we can work that the president has laid out," Pence added when asked about working with Democrats if they win the House, citing issues like trade and infrastructure. "I think there's...

    Vice President Pence on Thursday blasted Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams over her support among celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey and Will Ferrell, saying the Democrat has been "bankrolled by Hollywood liberals." “I heard Oprah is in town today," Pence said at a campaign event for Abrams's GOP opponent, Brian Kemp, according to AJC, a Georgian paper. Winfrey stumped for Abrams Thursday and has been campaigning door-to-door for the candidate, who is seeking to become the first black female governor in U.S. history. "I heard Will Ferrell was going door-to-door the other day," the vice president said. "I’d like to...

    Today my wife and I were sitting in close proximity to three gay men discussing President Trump. They were all over the place about the attempts to impeach him and were holding out hope that his business dealings would be found to conflict with his official duties. While they hoped that would result in his impeachment, they certainly didn't know what the succession to office entailed. They didn't know who would replace him under the 25th amendment but I got the impression they assumed there would be a special election.The conversation then took a remarkable turn when they conceded that...

"I'm very proud of it," the Apple (AAPL) CEO told Christiane Amanpour on Wednesday in an exclusive interview for her program on CNN International and PBS. Being gay is "God's greatest gift to me," he said. Cook came out on October 30, 2014. His sexual orientation had been widely rumored beforehand though he had not confirmed it publicly. "I was public because I started to receive stories from kids who read...

    Vice President Pence on Tuesday declined to rule out the idea of deploying nuclear weapons in space, saying that the current ban on their use is “in the interest of every nation” but that the issue should be decided on “the principle that peace comes through strength.” The new positioning comes as the Trump administration moves to potentially exit a major nuclear weapons pact with Russia and possibly bolster U.S. military operations in the heavens by forming a “Space Force.” Pence argued that the Space Force is critical for U.S. national security as China and Russia expand their presence in...

    Vice President Mike Pence refused to cower in the face of hostile leftist protesters who swarmed the Capitol Building after the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Instead of exiting through a back door, Pence chose to leave the building from the front, where an angry mob had gathered to screech “Shame! Shame! Shame!” to protest Kavanaugh’s confirmation. In an unforgettable coup de grâce, Pence cheerfully waved to the motley crew of unruly leftists as he made his stylish exit. . . . This liberal protester pictured below threatened to kill Brett Kavanaugh and President Trump. “I’d shoot that...

    Vice President Mike Pence fired off a strong warning to China on Thursday, saying in a fiery speech, “We will not be intimidated, and we will not stand down.” He criticized China on several fronts, portraying the country as the foremost threat to the U.S., its interests around the world and even its politics at home. He accused the growing Asian economic power of trying to undermine President Trump. “As we speak, Beijing is employing a whole-of-government approach, using political, economic and military tools, as well as propaganda, to advance its influence and benefit its interests in the United States,”...

    Vice President Mike Pence had a message for former President Barack Obama at the Values Voter Summit Saturday: the American economy is booming because the Trump administration is rolling back Obama administration policies. “It’s been two years of promises made and promises kept, and we’re just getting started,” Pence told the conference audience in Washington, DC.

    “There are those who say, ‘What if we get rid of him? Then we’ve got that Vice President and he’ll be worse.’ I say knock off the first one and then go after the second one. We have the power.” You can always count on Rep. Maxine Waters to give away the plans to destroy Trump’s presidency and administration. The latest of which occurred Friday and included a suggestion to “knock off” Trump, which was greeted with applause and cheers. The National Newspaper Publishers Association gave Waters a National Leadership Award and Waters used her platform to trash Trump. Watch:...

    Are you rooting hard for President Trump to be impeached and removed from office? Or, as the anonymous New York Times op-ed last week discussed, hoping there will be an invocation of the (completely unrealistic) 25th Amendment? Or better yet, for him to hang his head in shame and resign? If so, you’re certainly not alone, as every passing day there is new reason to doubt Trump’s competence and evidence linking him to criminal behavior is piling up. But there’s a huge risk: If Trump vacates the office, we could face almost 10 years of President Mike Pence. Is that...

The California congresswoman accepted a lifetime achievement award from the Stonewall Young Democrats on Saturday in Los Angeles, telling the enthusiastic crowd that Mr. Trump threatened Americans’ way of life and deserved to be impeached. “I’m gonna get him,” Ms. Waters said, according to a video published by progressive activist and attendee Edward Garren. “I’m in this fight and I’m not gonna move.
