    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told the Chicago Tribune editorial board on Tuesday that Democrats need to take back the Chamber in November’s midterm elections so she may be restored as speaker of the House to provide “a check and balance” on President Donald Trump. Although Pelosi did not credit Trump for any of the many accomplishments of his short tenure as president, including — in the board’s words — his role in the economy, which is now “roaring.” The article also noted her stance seems to ignore “joblessness at a record low for Hispanics and near a record...

    BRIDGEWATER, N.J. — President Donald Trump insulted NBA star LeBron James from afar but passed up an opportunity to criticize him on his own turf, sticking to Democrats, the news media and other familiar targets during a campaign rally Saturday night in James' home state of Ohio. When Trump took the stage in a sweltering high school gymnasium north of Columbus, his late-night tweet deriding James' intellect had already generated hours of online buzz in defense of the all-star from Akron who had just opened a school for at-risk children in his hometown. Even first lady Melania Trump provided an...

    Caracas (AFP) - Under-fire Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro admitted his economic model has "failed" in the wake of food and medicine shortages and public service paralysis, such as Tuesday's power failure that affected 80 percent of Caracas. "The production models we've tried so far have failed and the responsibility is ours, mine and yours," Maduro told his ruling PSUV party congress, as Venezuela looks to tackle chronic inflation the International Monetary Fund predicted would reach one million percent this year. "Enough with the whining... we need to produce with or without (outside) aggression, with or without blockades, we need to...

    Despite this week's barrage of developments in the Monica Lewinsky scandal, interviews conducted over the past three days confirm President Clinton's continued ability to withstand the sometimes serious, and often embarrassing, claims which have been disclosed since January, according to the latest CBS News poll. Poll findings on policy issues, as well as Americans' judgment about the essentially private nature of the scandal, provide a better insight into why public opinion has not turned against Mr. Clinton.

    President Donald Trump says the new Air Force One planes will be red, white and blue, a shift away from the classic "baby blue" design that they have had for decades. "Air Force One is going to be incredible," Trump told CBS in an interview over the weekend that aired on Tuesday. "It's going to be the top of the line, the top in the world. And it's going to be red, white and blue, which I think is appropriate." A source familiar with the redesign told CNN last week that Trump was deeply involved in the conversation about a...

    MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico’s president-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said he would cancel the planned purchase of eight military helicopters from the United States as part of cost-cutting measures.Lopez Obrador, who handily won this month’s presidential election on pledges to fight corruption and cut government waste, said there had been plans to pay 26 billion pesos ($1.36 billion) for the helicopters to be used by Mexico’s navy. “This purchase is going to be canceled because we can not make this expenditure,” Lopez Obrador told reporters on Wednesday after meeting with incoming legislators from his MORENA party.

    We're now just four months, practically speaking, from the effective launch of the 2020 Democratic presidential primary season. As soon as the 2018 midterm election is in the books — win or lose — you'll probably see a handful of the dozens of prospective candidates making moves or even launching campaigns to challenge President Donald Trump. Each quarter, the Washington Post handicaps potential candidates. Here is its latest ranking of possible contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020: Worth watching: Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, former U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, California Gov. Jerry Brown, Colorado Gov....

Kennedy and First Lady Jackie Kennedy in the 1960s, Axios reports. Trump’s preferred color scheme would incorporate red,...

    California Congresswoman Maxine Waters could become the Democratic nominee for president in 2020. Let me repeat that, so it can sink in: Maxine Waters could be the Democratic nominee for president in 2020. Ok, let me blow into a breathalyzer, take a drug test and get psychologically evaluated before I say it a third time: Maxine Waters could be the Democratic nominee for president in 2020. How is it possible that a radical congresswoman, who was just called “un-American” by the leadership of her own party for encouraging viral confrontations with Trump administration officials, could win the presidential nomination of...

    Insurgent Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to take her budding political career all the way to The White House, her mother told The Post on Wednesday. “Her aspiration is to be the president,” Blanca Ocasio-Cortez, 55, said at the candidate’s childhood home in the Bronx. “She has been thinking about politics since she was a teenager. She would read historical and political books old and new. She would engage in political discussions passionately.” Blanca, a 55-year-old secretary for a school in Florida, spent a few days campaigning with her daughter. She said Ocasio-Cortez’s upset victory over Congressman Joe Crowley was like...

    BOGOTA (Reuters) - Gustavo Petro, a former insurgent turned rabble-rousing mayor, is fighting to become Colombia's first leftist president, turning his humble beginnings and revolutionary past into a rallying cry for millions of the nation's youth and poor. The 58-year-old economist is about 20 points behind right-wing candidate Ivan Duque to replace President Juan Manuel Santos, but his presence in the second round has worried many in the traditionally conservative nation, where the right has kept a vice-like grip on power. Proposals from Petro to change the nation's economic model by piling taxes on unproductive landowners and abandoning oil and...
