He was set to receive an award from Princeton Theological Seminary, also a Presbyterian institution in the Reformed tradition, for his contributions to the “Neo-Calvinist vision of religious engagement.”

    WASHINGTON – President Trump won’t attend the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner because he wasn’t elected to “pretend” to like reporters, a Trump aide said Sunday. “I think it’s kind of naive of us to think that we can all walk into a room for a couple of hours and pretend that some of that tension isn’t there,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders told ABC’s “This Week.” Sanders compared Trump’s open hostility with the press to getting egged. “One of the things we say in the South [is] if a Girl Scout egged your house, would you buy cookies from her?...

    As Hollywood’s stars deliver their off-the-cuff condemnations of President Donald Trump at Sunday night’s Academy Awards, the president and first lady Melania Trump will be having a ball. Literally. Sunday night is the annual Governors Ball, a part of the National Governors Association meetings in Washington. “Mrs. Trump looks forward to putting on a phenomenal event,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Wednesday.

    Members of the mainstream media were left fuming this afternoon after President Trump refused to call on any of their organizations for the third straight press conference. Yet many of these same news organizations have likened Trump to the Taliban and Adolf Hitler, floated false rumors about his use of a Russian prostitute, and accused his administration of being pro-slavery. After Trump avoided calling on MSNBC during today's presser with Benjamin Netanyahu, MSNBC’s Peter Alexander complained that the conservative journalists he did call on didn’t ask “real questions” like he would have. “What was striking," Alexander said, was that "President...

    Donald Trump likes to golf. He owns golf courses around the world, after all. Donald Trump does not like the media. We know this because he talks about it, he tweets about it, and he likely dreams about it. This weekend, the president took another break from Washington, D.C. and headed south to Mar-a-Lago. On Saturday, Trump suited up to play a round of golf with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. [Snip] But what to do with the press while you’re teeing off? Trump's press corps has been placed in a basement suite at Jupiter golf club. Black plastic over...

  • ‘Never Trump’ national-security Republicans fear they have been blacklisted

    They are some of the biggest names in the Republican national security firmament, veterans of past GOP administrations who say, if called upon by President-elect Donald Trump, they stand ready to serve their country again. But their phones aren’t ringing. Their entreaties to Trump Tower in New York have mostly gone unanswered. In Trump world, these establishment all-stars say they are “PNG” — personae non gratae. Their transgression was signing one or both of two public “Never Trump” letters during the campaign, declaring they would not vote for Trump and calling his candidacy a danger to the nation. ...

    That has been a problem in my party, that when we’re in power, we’re nice. We bend over backwards to work with people. . . . Waters said she wouldn’t even bother to meet with Trump if he invited her to the White House, saying she doesn’t trust him. “I’m not going to go,” Waters said. “I have no intentions of sitting down with him … He can’t be trusted. Why should we work with someone I can’t trust? … I’m going to fight him every inch of the way.”

    Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has apparently snubbed Theresa May over the UK’s support of a highly critical UN resolution condemning Israeli settlement building. The move is the latest in a series of diplomatic retaliations by Israel against the countries that supported a UN security council resolution describing Jewish settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories as a “flagrant violation” of international law and an obstacle to peace.

  • Twitter Obsessive Trump Snubs Twitter CEO Dorsey for Exclusive Tech Summit

    Donald Trump may love Twitter, but he clearly has no respect for the company’s CEO Jack Dorsey, who banned some of Trump’s most high-profile and racist supporters. Yep, poor @Jack wasn’t invited to Trump’s super exclusive tech conference tomorrow unlike Elon Musk, Tim Cook and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg. The tech conference was organized by Silicon Valley billionaire and Trump supporter Peter Thiel, and is expected to address topics such as jobs and immigration, especially in the context of the tech industry’s need for a steady stream of foreign H1B workers. But despite Trump using Twitter as his primary means...

    Fox News host Sean Hannity apparently believes that CNN, The Washington Post and The New York Times should be excluded from the White House press corps while Donald Trump is president. Hannity attacked CNN host Brian Stelter on Sunday night after Stelter used the term “national emergency” on air to describe the shocking outcome of the election, which has so far sparked nationwide protests and has led to a disturbing uptick in racist incidents. Hannity responded to Stelter by accusing him of being in cahoots with Hillary Clinton and calling him a “[Fox News Channel] stalker.”

    In a highly unusual move, President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday night left his Manhattan residence without notifying the reporters covering him or giving any indication of where he was going. The maneuver seemed to deliberately limit access to the media. The only way the press eventually ascertained his whereabouts was after a Bloomberg reporter, who happened to be dining at the 21 Club, tweeted a photo of Trump and some of his transition team in the Midtown steakhouse. Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks later told NBC News. "He is having dinner with his family."
