FIRED-UP Donald Trump became embroiled in a confrontational exchange with White House reporters today labelling one a "rude, terrible person" in a "fake news" blast. Tempers flared when the President refused to answer questions from CNN reporter Jim Acosta about the migrants heading for the US border and Russian meddling in the US election. Trump spoke loudly over Acosta and then tried to shut him down by demanding he hand over his microphone. He said: "Why don’t you let me run the country you run CNN and if you did it well your ratings would improve." "That's enough," Trump said repeatedly as Acosta continued to try and ask his questions. When a White House aide bizarrely attempted to snatch the mic from him, Acosta quickly yanked it back. "On the Russia investigation, are you concerned that you may .,, ?" Acosta said before Trump interrupted him. The President blasted: "I'm not concerned about anything with the Russia investigation because it's a … [Read more...] about Donald Trump brands CNN reporter a ‘rude, terrible person’ in fiery press conference as President takes credit for Midterms ‘victory’

Instead of traveling by train, as Franklin Roosevelt did 83 years ago, President Donald Trump is taking jet-powered Air Force One to San Diego on Tuesday, March 13. He is scheduled to spend the day addressing members of the military and inspecting border wall prototypes. By early evening, however, Trump will be on a different mission — fundraising. It’s unclear how that might go. On the one hand, numbers suggest Trump could hit turbulence. He lost California by four million votes and his approval rating in the state is abysmal.

BRIGHTON — Mary Daubman speaks for many Republican voters in Colorado when she offers her assessment of President Donald Trump. “Oh, I love him,” she said. “I love him.” And when it comes to the governor’s race, the longtime Republican activist expects her party’s candidates to do the same. “If they say bad things about Trump, I’ll slap them,” she said with a laugh at the recent Adams County Republican assembly. Trump is a defining figure in the 2018 election in Colorado, particularly in Republican primary contests, where a poll shows support for the president among the party’s likely voters holds at 80 percent. But many of the state’s Republican candidates remain reluctant to embrace Trump. The two most prominent contenders for governor — state Treasurer Walker Stapleton and Attorney General Cynthia Coffman — won’t say whether they will accept the president’s endorsement or campaign with … [Read more...] about 4 in 5 staunch Colorado Republicans back Donald Trump.
