President Donald Trump will attend Saturday’s Army-Navy Game in Philadelphia. The White House confirmed Trump’s attendance to The Associated Press on Tuesday. Trump also went to the 2016 game when he was president-elect. Trump will be the 10th sitting president to attend Army-Navy, a tradition that began with Theodore Roosevelt in 1901. Barack Obama was the most recent president to attend the game, in 2011 at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland. Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said at the annual pregame luncheon in Philadelphia last week that that school is always prepared for the president to attend. The 108th football meeting between Army and Navy will be the 20th game attended by a president. The Commander-in-Chief traditionally switches sides of the field at halftime.

EX-FBI director James Comey has blasted Donald Trump as "morally unfit" for office and says he is doing "tremendous damage" to institutional norms. Comey also admitted the US President may be open to blackmail by Russia and could not discount the possibility they "might have something on him". He was sacked last May amid the FBI's probing of possible connections between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russia's meddling in the American elections. Russia has denied interfering in the election and Trump has denied any collusion or improper activity. In an interview with ABC News on Sunday, Comey said of Trump: "A person ... who talks about and treats women like they're pieces of meat, who lies constantly about matters big and small and insists the American people believe it, that person's not fit to be president of the United States, on moral grounds. "And that's not a policy statement."

Just this week, he rebuffed aides’ advice for a phone call with Putin, congratulating the Russian warmly on his victory in (rigged) elections, while refusing to condemn Russia’s nerve-agent attack in Britain or hacking of U.S. targets. On Monday, however, Trump did respond by expelling 60 Russian diplomats, joining European Union countries, Canada and Ukraine which expelled over 100 Russian diplomats in total. After the call, the president trumpeted three times that he and … [Read more...] about Rubin: What are the costs of President Donald Trump’s dogged pursuit of Vladimir Putin?
By Letters From Our Readers | April 8, 2018 at 9:06 am Voters can repair mistake made in electing Trump With the national debt now more than $21 trillion, and rising at more than $1.5 trillion per fiscal year, the Trump “tax reform” will reduce revenue and make things worse. Any trade war with China or other nations will not help. And, at some point, confidence that our current president can Tweet and chew gum at the same time is dwindling. Elections matter, and the American public is, more and more, learning that a mistake was made in electing Donald Trump. Even if we avoid a shooting war with North Korea, or a total disengagement with Mexico and other nations in Latin America, if our economy and the stock market tank, the repercussions will be severe.
