    President Donald Trump bragged to a crowd in Ohio that he could ďdestroyĒ the careers of Republican politicians who didnít support him.Speaking at a rally in Ohio on Saturday, ahead of Tuesdayís special election in the stateís 12th congressional district, the presidentís message to Republicans to line up behind his agenda was clear.ďHow do you get 100 percent of anything? We always have somebody who says ĎI donít like Trump, I donít like our president, he destroyed my career,'Ē the president told the crowd, The Hill reported.ďI only destroy their career because they said bad things about me and you...

    As trade tensions escalate between Washington and Beijing, the U.S. Senate quietly passed legislation on Thursday that would lower trade barriers on hundreds of items made in China. With no debate, Senate unanimously passed a bill that would cut or eliminate tariffs on toasters, chemicals and roughly 1,660 other items made outside United States. Nearly half of those items are produced in China, according to a Reuters analysis of government records. The United States and China, the world's two largest economies, are increasingly at loggerheads over trade. U.S. President Donald Trump has announced a series of punitive tariffs on Chinese...

    As the editors of The Weekly Standard suggested last week, Congress could pass a resolution of censure for the presidentís conduct and his subsequent comments. Congress can also take steps with concrete consequences: ē Pass legislation imposing new sanctions on Russia in the event of any future attacks on our democratic process. Dare President Trump to veto it. Override him if he does. ē Hold hearings that would include in-depth testimony from the national security team on the Russian attacks, putting the case on the record (again), while putting pressure on members of the administration to correct the presidentís comments....

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) is saying that more members of the Republican Party need to be willing to stand up to President Trump. ďItís been pretty lonely out here," Kasich told The Guardian in an interview published on Friday, alluding to how he is one of the few members of the GOP to consistently criticize the president. ďNot that I mind walking a lonely road, Iíve done it most of my career, but always would be good if you had more people who are willing to stand up and say thatís the wrong direction,Ē Kasich added.

    Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) is renewing his call for President Trump to release his tax returns after the president's controversial press conference with Russian leader Vladimir Putin this week. Sanford told The Washington Postís Robert Costa on Tuesday that he doesnít know if Putin has any compromising information on Trump, but said he wants more information about Trumpís finances in light of the president's comments while standing alongside Putin the previous day. Trump's remarks during a joint press conference with Putin in Helsinki were widely panned by U.S. lawmakers, with many Republicans and Democrats condemning his comments siding with Putin's...

    The federal government collected a record $1,305,490,000,000 in individual income taxes through the first nine months of fiscal 2018 (October 2017 through June 2018), according to the Monthly Treasury Statement released today.

Alex Azar seeking information about an HHS-run facility in Homestead that is housing 94 minors who were separated from their parents.

    The conservative commentators who absolutely despise President Trump are in a box. During the campaign, many loudly proclaimed that they could never vote for Trump. But they said they didn't want Hillary Clinton to win either. So some opted for fringe candidates or third-party candidates or write-in candidates or told people to make up their own minds. This was something of a charade. Either Trump or Clinton was going to be the next president. So by refusing to back Trump, they were increasing the chances that Hillary would win. Now, with the midterms approaching, some of those on the right...

On CNN: ďRoe v. Wade is doomed.Ē Huffington Post: ďItís time to prepare for life without nationwide legal abortion.Ē Reuters: ďa death knell for Roe v.

    Mitt Romney said it is "too early" to say he will support President Trump in 2020. The Utah candidate for U.S. senator further explained to MSNBC's Kasie Hunt, in an interview that aired Sunday evening, that his prior prediction that Trump will get re-elected was not an endorsement. "I also think Gavin Newsom will get elected [as governor] in California. That's not something I want to see, it's just something that's probably going to happen," Romney added. Romney was also prompted to speak about whether he wants a Republican to challenge Trump in a 2020 primary. "There will be people...

    Sen. Susan Collins (R., Maine) said on Sunday that any nominee for the Supreme Court that had demonstrated hostility to Roe V. Wade would not receiver her support. CNN host Jake Tapper asked Collins about how President Donald Trump expressed desire to nominate justices who may vote to overturn Roe V. Wade if offered the opportunity. Collins, who supports Roe V. Wade, is a key vote in the Senate, where Republicans only have a one vote majority in the chamber. "With all due respect, the Supreme Court, as we know, it overturns its own rulings all the time," Tapper said....

    As Capitol Hill Republicans attempt for ‚ÄĒ what, the eighth? ninth? ‚ÄĒ time in the¬†past two decades to jam through an amnesty that their voters have explicitly, loudly and repeatedly said they do not want, it‚Äôs worth asking a question that is rarely raised: Does the United States ‚ÄĒ¬†population¬†320‚Äąmillion and rising ‚ÄĒ need more people? If so, why? To most ears, the question sounds blasphemous, which illustrates the rottenness of our immigration debate. Actually, ‚Äúdebate‚ÄĚ is far too generous. One side has made sure that there is no debate. Good people want more immigration, and bad people object or raise...

    Hillary Clinton said, "Jesus Christ said, 'Suffer the little children unto me' not 'let the little children suffer.'" Three former first ladies ó Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush and Michelle Obama ó have stepped out their political retirement to condemn the Trump administration's practice of separating parents and children at the border while parents are prosecuted for illegally entering the country. Speaking at a women's group in New York City on Monday, Clinton called family separation "an affront to our values" and said she had warned Trump's immigration policy would lead to this during her 2016 presidential campaign against him.

During a segment of Lou Dobbs Tonight, Dobbs blasted a plan by Ryan and Rep.

According to the White House, Trump now supports the amnesty deal, though the president...
