    The White House said Friday that President Trump supports House legislation that closely tracks his priorities on border security and limiting legal immigration, walking back comments he made on national television rejecting the GOP bill. The reversal came after hours of confusion on Capitol Hill, where Trump¬ís words roiled an already fragile internal debate between conservative and moderate House Republicans who have been trying to find an immigration compromise after months of false starts. ¬ďThe president fully supports both the Goodlatte bill and the House leadership bill,¬Ē White House spokesman Raj Shah said, referring to legislation drafted by House Judiciary...

    White House press secretary Sarah Sanders hit back Wednesday night against a report that she was considering leaving her role, saying she ¬ďloves¬Ē her job and is ¬ďhonored¬Ē to work with President Trump. Sanders was replying to an earlier CBS News report that both she and deputy press secretary Raj Shah have considered leaving their positions in the administration. ¬ďDoes @CBSNews know something I don¬ít about my plans and my future,¬Ē Sanders asked in a tweet. ¬ďI was at my daughter¬ís year-end Kindergarten event and they ran a story about my ¬Ďplans to leave the WH¬í without even talking to...
  • Anti-Israel WH Reporters Demand Israel Show ĎRestraint,í Blame Them for Palestinian Deaths

    Considering the liberal media’s history of being anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian, Monday’s White House Press Briefing featured plenty of leading questions for Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah suggesting that Israel was responsible for the deadly protests by Palestinians along with the Israeli/Gaza border. This all came as the U.S. Embassy opened in Jerusalem. Some were fair (such as one from the Fox News Channel’s John Roberts) and others touched on the controversy of the Trump administration inviting Pastors John Hagee and Robert Jeffress, but the most obnoxious ones came concerning the brazen violence by Palestinians.

    MSNBC reporter Andrea Mitchell said it was "appalling" that the U.S. moved its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem without obtaining any concessions from Israel. Mitchell expressed astonishment at the Trump administration placing the blame for violence solely on Hamas, who instigated riots along the border in Gaza. White House principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah on Monday did not call for Israel to soften its response to the riots, leading Mitchell to decry the administrationís support for Israel. "I've never seen anything like that," Mitchell said. "Even the strongest supporters of Israel in administrations Republican and Democratic would at that point...

    NBC White House correspondent Peter Alexander asked the White House Monday if it believed Israel should "kill at will" during questions about violence at the Gaza Strip. White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said responsibility for the violence along the border fence "rests squarely with Hamas," the militant terrorist organization that governs the Palestinian territory. Mass protests have broken out again in response to the moving of the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, recently recognized by the U.S. as Israel's capital. Alexander quoted French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, who issued a statement Monday calling on Israel to use proportionate...
  • The Presidential Personnel Office Sounds Like a Pretty Fun Place to Work

    The Presidential Personnel Office (PPO) sounds like one heck of a time. According to a recent Washington Post report, the office tasked with vetting presidential appointees had the audacity to partake in alcoholic drinking games, happy hours, and even use of tobacco products. Egads! “The Presidential Personnel Office (PPO) is little known outside political circles. But it has far-reaching influence as a gateway for the appointed officials who carry out the president’s policies and run federal agencies.Under President Donald Trump, the office was launched with far fewer people than in prior administrations. It has served as a refuge for...

    The White House said Wednesday that President Trump opposes cutting a deal with Congress to protect young illegal immigrants from deportation for three years in exchange for three years of funding for a border wall. Mr. Trump does want to see funding for his border wall included, but doesnít think it should be tied to legal status for ďDreamers,Ē spokesman Raj Shah said. ...He was shooting down a Washington Post report that the White House had signaled it was open to a ďthree-for-threeĒ deal, which would have allocated ...

    Longstanding friction between U.S. President Donald Trump and two top aides, the National Security Advisor and the Chief of Staff, has grown to a point that either or both might quit soon, four senior administration officials said. Both H.R. McMaster and John Kelly are military men considered by U.S. political observers as moderating influences on the president by imposing a routine on the White House. They have also convinced Trump of the importance of international alliances, particularly NATO, which he has criticized as not equally sharing its burdens with the United States. However, all the officials were quick to add...

    There's a thing where racists supposedly think all members of one ethnicity look alike. While it doesn't actually make someone racist to not recognize the feature variations of an ethnic group he hasn't been as exposed to, the Left likes to think it does. Which makes Leftist news network MSNBC's gaffe even more hilarious. MSNBC host Chris Hayes was talking about White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah. As usual on television news, if you're going to talk about someone, you show an image of them. However, apparently his staff didn't bother to look too deep. Either that, or they...

    Can you imagine if, say, a Fox News host dismissively referred to an Indian-American Democrat, the son of immigrants, as ďRaj whatever-his-name isĒ? The cries of liberal outrage would echo through the halls of politics and media. But thatís precisely how, on CNN this morning, Chris Cuomo snidely referred to Raj Shah, President Trumpís Principal Deputy White House Press Secretary. Ironically, Cuomo did so in the context of a discussion of racism. Cuomo said that when the controversy over President Trumpís alleged ďsóholeĒ line first arose: ďWe went to the White House when it happened. Raj whatever-his-name-is didnít back off...

    CNN has been hammering President Trump 24/7 since reports that he called Haiti, El Salvador and African nations "s***hole" countries. Multiple anchors, guests and analysts called Trump a racist live on air.The context makes Chris Cuomo's comment about a White House official on Monday pretty hypocritical. During yet another segment about Trump's "s**hole" comments, the anchor thought it appropriate to mock Indian-American White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah by not even bothering to find out his full name.ďWe went to the White House when it happened, Raj whatever-his-name-is didnít back off the words,Ē Cuomo said.Shah kindly informed them that...

    In what was certainly one of the stranger exchanges on cable news Wednesday, Democratic Sen. Tom Carper (DE) claimed on CNN that White House economic adviser Gary Cohn followed his advice and faked a bad connection to get off the phone with President Trump earlier this month.The discussion, Carper claimed, was over tax reform. According to Carper, 30 minutes into the meeting, Cohn got a call from Trump in Asia, which Carper said was "nice," but he said, "15 minutes later, the president's still talking.""I said, ‚ÄėGary, why don't you do this? Take your cell phone back and just say,...

    1 of 1Full Size WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama has selected Kevin Concannon to run the government's public nutrition programs and Rajiv Shah to oversee agricultural research and education, the White House said on Friday. Both posts, as undersecretary at the Agriculture Department, require Senate confirmation. USDA is expected to spend more than $65 billion this fiscal year on nutrition programs such as school lunch and food stamps. Concannon is director of the Iowa Department of Human Services, which is responsible for Medicaid, food assistance and low-income programs.
