    NBC News legal analyst Jill Wine-Banks is publicly floating the idea of indicting President Trump’s children if no way can be found to indict him. “I firmly believe the Constit[ution] permits indicting a sitting president, but if DOJ disagrees, indicting his children, the Trump Org & Foundation for their roles in wrongdoing is a great alternative–or addition[,]” she tweeted on Thursday: Wine-Banks is not only a frequent legal analyst for MSNBC; she was a Watergate prosecutor, served in the Carter administration as U.S. general counsel of the Army, and as the executive director of the American Bar Association.

    First lady Melania Trump said she wants to keep her son out of the spotlight because he deserves to have a normal childhood, despite the high-profile roles of his parents. “Children should be off limits. I protect him. I want to give him [as] normal [of a] life as possible. This is not normal life, but I like to protect him and give him the childhood that he deserves,” she told Fox News’ Sean Hannity in an interview that aired Thursday. She said any focus on her son makes her angry. Twelve-year-old Barron rarely appears in public with his parents....

    Melania Trump has joined the ranks of weaponized First Lady, and it may be just what the country needs. Amidst the perceived chaos occurring on a regular basis at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue due to leaks, the undermining of the president’s agenda, and general bad behavior, Melania Trump has emerged as an effective counter-force. Other presidents have had them: Hillary Clinton was Bill’s fiery rear guard and Nancy Reagan was the ultimate protector of her husband, Ronald Reagan. Now, it is Donald Trump who benefits from his closest adviser, Melania. On Tuesday, in an extraordinary move, she took a flamethrower to...

    A Saturday report from The New York Times found Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, paid little to no federal income taxes from 2009 to 2016 using legal tax mechanisms. An IRS policy known as depreciation is a deduction Kushner Cos. used to diminish its taxable income on properties largely bought with borrowed money. Though not illegal, the filings show how real estate tax codes leave room for profitable maneuvering.

    She is viewed highly among Republicans and Independents, with a rating of 83 percent and 55 percent, respectively. However, among Democrats, only 28 percent view her favorably, with 56 percent of Democrats viewing her as unfavorably. . . The first lady stirred up controversy in June when she wore a jacket with the words “I Don’t Care, Do U?” on her way to visit a children’s detention center in Texas. “It was for the people, and for the left-wing media who are criticizing me, and I want to show them that I don’t care,”

    Before she became the nation’s first lady, ABC News spoke with Melania Trump when she was a supermodel dating the future president of the United States, Donald Trump, and asked her what she thought about being in the White House. On Dec. 3, 1999, the Slovenian supermodel, then-named Melania Knauss, 26, sat down with ABC News correspondent Don Dahler following a photo shoot in New York City for a North Shore Animal League America campaign.

    Melania Trump isn’t just an anti-bullying advocate, she says she’s a victim, as well. In an interview broadcast Thursday morning on ABC, the first lady also showed she shared her husband’s gift for hyperbole. “I could say that I’m the most bullied person in the world,” Trump told reporter Tony Llamas. When he questioned that claim, she backed down, but only slightly. “One of them ― if you really see what people are saying about me,” she said. Many Twitter users didn’t respond to her with much sympathy. Instead, they broke out really teeny violins for a symphony of snark.

    In their 2009 book From Poverty to Prosperity, authors Arnold Kling and Nick Schulz noted how the productivity of a typical immigrant surged upon arrival in the United States. Thanks to feverish investment in all things American, those working in the United States (at all levels of income) are equipped to produce at levels that are the envy of much of the world. Simply stated, to be able to work in the United States is to win the proverbial lottery. While most Americans can’t lay claim to any substantial inheritance, we increasingly live and work as though we do. The...

Trump did not name a replacement for Haley, but said “many people” want to take her place.
