    In comments during a Cabinet meeting, Trump also said he was open to working on a path to legal status for hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants known as Dreamers, pointing toward a potential broader deal with Democrats that could resolve the shutdown. Trump's demand for the wall funding thwarted congressional efforts to pass legislation last month to keep about a quarter of the federal government funded, affecting some 800,000 federal workers. Democrats oppose the wall and Trump's funding demand

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Now, Reuters: "Conservatives bristle as Trump backs off Clinton prosecution." There's another one. "Trump walks back." "Trump backs off." "Trump changing mind." "Trump relaxing." Don't believe it! He hasn't done anything yet. He's just talking to a bunch of people at the media that he knows don't tell the truth about him. But in this story, there's something of particular interest to me. "Conservatives who have reveled in the possibility of a Clinton prosecution were not pleased. Breitbart News, the outlet once led by Trump's chief strategist Steve Bannon, published a story on Tuesday under the headline:...

    As we get closer to Election Day, there will be a new flurry of stories showing how Hillary has an 85+percent chance of winning—and that her Electoral College count is going to be a landslide. It’s over, basically—that’s the theme. For Reuters, they’re projecting Clinton to win 326 electoral votes, with a 95 percent chance of winning: In the last week, there has been little movement. Clinton leads Donald Trump in most of the states that Trump would need should he have a chance to win the minimum 270 votes needed to win. According to the project, she has a...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: There are two stories. There is one story out that says this: "Trump's Rigged Election Comments a 'Gift to Dictators', Say Africans." And it cites Kenya where Obama's cousin rejected an election result. So what they're trying to do here with this story is say that Trump's comments on the election being rigged are providing aid and comfort to African dictators. Trump is responsible, therefore ,for African dictators who may seize even more power. Donald Trump's responsible for this. Then there is this story, and this is utterly shameless. I mean, this is Reuters. "Vote Authorities Warned...

And today these are, what would you call, girl-on-girl I think is the -- nude girl-on-girl photos with Melania and other women. I think this probably might wrap up the LGBTQ vote for Trump. You never know how these things are seen. You never know. And the single white male vote, particularly the some or no college educated white male vote. Yeah, I mean, isn't this the kind of stuff that makes people big stars today on Twitter and Facebook, TMZ? I mean,...

    U.S. economic growth unexpectedly accelerated in the second quarter, laying a firmer foundation for the rest of the year that could bring the Federal Reserve a step closer to cutting back its monetary stimulus. Gross domestic product grew at a 1.7 percent annual rate, the Commerce Department said on Wednesday, stepping up from the first-quarter's downwardly revised 1.1 percent expansion pace.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: There's one other interesting story from Reuters I want to get into in a minute. Reuters is attacking Gallup, saying their poll is illegitimate. I've never seen that before. Reuters also had a story came out yesterday headlined: "McCain Voters Defecting to Obama are Older White Males." Reuters wants us to believe that a bunch of McCain voters -- older white males -- have made the decision to vote for Obama! I read the story and I've looked at data they provide. I don't see how this ads up. I will share with you that data. You...

    The Washington Post noted this week that most recent polls show Mitt Romney "winning the white vote by more than any GOP presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan" in 1984. But Reuters is looking hard for the bright side, focusing on a tiny subset to explore how "McCain voters defecting to Obama are older white males." Cheerleading Gabriel Debenedetti touted how “Roughly 5 percent of respondents in Reuters/Ipsos polls said they chose the Republican contender in 2008 and will switch to Obama in 2012" and “The McCain-to-Obama switchers are 55 percent male, and 34 percent of them are 55 or older.”...

    A controversy is brewing over whether the United States might break tradition and dip the American flag at the opening ceremony for the London Olympics. However, the American Legion said to do so would not only violate the U.S. Flag Code, but would also be un-American. Scott Blackmun, the CEO of the United States Olympic Committee, told Reuters they were discussing the matter internally. “We’ve talked about that a little bit and you never know what is going to happen,” Blackmun told the news agency. But later a spokesman for the USOC sent Fox News a statement Blackmun’s comments and...

    In case you missed it (which wouldn't be surprising given how quiet the press has been since the related report's release, the Department of Labor reported that initial claims for unemployment rose to a seasonally adjusted 386,000 from a review (up, or course) 352,000 the previous week. An unbylined Reuters report carried at CNBC (HT to an NB tipster) bizarrely described this result as a "rebound," both in its headline and text: Weekly Claims Post Rebound; Jobs Market Still in Doldrums The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits rebounded last week, pushing them back to levels consistent...

    Anti-Wall Street protesters say the rich are getting richer while average Americans suffer, but the group that started it all may have benefited indirectly from the largesse of one of the world's richest men. There has been much speculation over who is financing the disparate protest, which has spread to cities across America and lasted nearly four weeks. One name that keeps coming up is investor George Soros, who in September debuted in the top 10 list of wealthiest Americans. Conservative critics contend the movement is a Trojan horse for a secret Soros agenda. Soros and the protesters deny any...

    John McCain has vaulted from long shot to the front-runner to win the Republican nomination for U.S. president. The reason? Voter confidence he can beat the eventual Democratic candidate in November's election, according to interviews with some of his supporters. -SNIP- "Electability is a very big issue," supporter John Lehman, a former secretary of the Navy, told Reuters last week. "A huge majority of Republicans want to win, and they would rather have victory than total litmus test purity," he added. On polling day in Florida, McCain was confident of his ability to win over that support in the months...

    CRAWFORD, Texas (Reuters) - President George W. Bush, faced with growing calls to start withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq, pleaded with Americans on Saturday for patience and cited progress in the past two months. "The success of the past couple of months have shown that conditions on the ground can change -- and they are changing," he said in his weekly radio address. "We cannot expect the new strategy we are carrying out to bring success overnight." Bush is facing mounting pressure from Democrats and a senior Republican lawmaker to begin pulling U.S. forces out of Iraq to show the...

    LONDON (AP) -- Reuters Group PLC said Friday that it had received a preliminary takeover approach, sending shares of the British news and financial information company soaring 25 percent.

Thomson is a financial data and information provider based in Stamford, Conn. In a note to Reuters staff, Chief Executive Officer Tom Glocer said he could say little about the approach. "However, I want you to know that in considering this...

    At least 700 Taliban fighters have crossed from Pakistan into Afghanistan to reinforce guerrillas attacking a key dam, a major source of electricity and irrigation, a provincial governor said on Monday. "We have got confirmed reports that they are Pakistani, Uzbek and Chechen nationals and have sneaked in," Helmand Governor Asadullah Wafa told Reuters by telephone. The Kajaki dam has seen major fighting in recent weeks between the Taliban and NATO forces, mainly British and Dutch. NATO-led troops have been conducting operations in the area for several months to allow reconstruction on the dam and the power transmission lines to...

    Dialogue with America's enemies, improved ties with other countries and more aggressive scrutiny of Bush administration decision-making are all high on the foreign policy agenda if Democrats score big in next week's U.S. elections. ADVERTISEMENT Under the U.S. Constitution, presidents have the lead on foreign policy and that will continue no matter which party controls Congress after November 7. But if Democrats take the House of Representatives, and maybe the Senate, as some polls predict, they could influence international relations -- through committee chairmanships and budget authority -- in ways they have not since 2001, when President Bill Clinton left...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush gently admonished his father for saying he hates to think what life would be like for his son if the Democrats win control of Congress in the November 7 election. It was the latest sign of possible strain in the relationship between the two men. "He shouldn't be speculating like this, because -- he should have called me ahead of time and I'd tell him they're not going to (win)," a smiling Bush told ABC "This Week" in an interview broadcast on Sunday.
