Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said he expected to support President Donald Trump’s tentative reelection campaign in 2020 during a Tuesday interview with SiriusXM hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak on Breitbart News Tonight. Mansour asked Cruz, “Would you be supportive of President Trump is he ran for reelection in 2020?”Cruz replied, “I certainly assume so. I was supportive of and campaigned for President Trump in 2016, and I am very encouraged with the substantive policy victories we are getting, whether it is an historic tax cut bill, whether it is regulatory reform that’s unleashing jobs, whether it is repealing the Obamacare individual mandate — which I led the fight to do in the United States Senate — whether it is nominating and confirming strong constitutionalists to the courts. On all of those fights I’ve been working to lead the battle. I’m content to continue working to lead that battle and defend our freedoms and defend the … [Read more...] about Exclusive: Ted Cruz Endorses Donald Trump in 2020

Matt O'Brien, The Washington Post Published 1:44 pm, Friday, April 13, 2018 What kind of politician puts a $6 trillion tax cut for the rich in his deficit-reduction plan? Or a $660 billion tax cut for big earners and big businesses in his health-care one? Or adds $1.5 trillion to the debt so he can give wealthy investors and corporations, yes, yet another tax cut? Well, in Washington, apparently a "fiscal hawk" who's famous for warning that "we've got to tackle" our alleged "debt crisis before it tackles us." That, after all, is how House Speaker Paul Ryan, who just announced his retirement, has most often been described. Pay no attention to the tax cut in front of the curtain - his real passion is attacking red ink with the earnestness of someone who thinks the words "budget baseline" are exciting. It must be true! He has said so himself! A less credulous interpretation, though, is that he's just someone who cares about tax cuts more than anything else. But that, as New … [Read more...] about Donald Trump didn’t change Paul Ryan. All Ryan ever cared about were tax cuts.
President Donald Trump has signed numerous executive actions since taking office, issuing them to drive policy and put his stamp on the presidency. The umbrella term executive actions covers executive orders, which the president uses to establish policies and manage the federal government's operations; presidential memorandums, which tend to be more regulatory but carry the same weight; and proclamations, which are mostly ceremonial.

He has been president for more than a year — so why is he still holding rallies? By CHARLES HOMANSAPRIL 9, 2018 Continue reading the main story Share This Page Continue reading the main story It was in the last half-hour of Donald Trump’s speech in Moon Township, Pa., that a sense of what exactly it was that I was watching — what I and everyone else had been watching throughout Trump’s presidency to that point — finally clicked into place with startling clarity. This was in early March, in an unexpectedly pristine hangar by the Pittsburgh airport, its white floor buffed to a shine in which I could make out my reflection. The implicit purpose of the event was to bring some Trump magic to a fellow Republican’s faltering campaign. Moon Township is in Pennsylvania’s 18th District, which Trump won in 2016 by nearly 20 points and where in three days, the Republican state representative Rick Saccone would narrowly lose a special … [Read more...] about The Post-Campaign Campaign of Donald Trump
President Donald Trump uses Twitter to break news, feud with critics and even conduct diplomacy. It can be hard to keep up with the prolific 45th president — so we're keeping track of @realDonaldTrump's latest noteworthy tweets. They include his attacks on his nemesis, former FBI Director James Comey, a Trumpian pitch on Tax Day and his statement that he would have fired Robert Mueller if he wanted to. With Newsday staff and The Associated Press 'Mike Pompeo met with Kim Jong Un in North Korea last week' Trump confirmed the top-secret meeting between the CIA director and North Korean leader in this tweet on April 18, 2018, but his time reference is off.

Comey 'was not fired because of the phony Russia investigation' This tweet on April 18, 2018, contradicts what Trump told NBC News last May, when he said that "this Russia thing" (which he deemed "a … [Read more...] about Donald Trump’s noteworthy tweets as president
