Mike Abramowitz, president of Freedom House, took aim at Trump in an introduction to the 2019 document. “There remains little question that President Trump exerts an influence on American politics that is straining our core values and testing the stability of our constitutional system.

Trump 45th president
BOTH Houses of the US Congress, the Cabinet and a host of other VIPs will all be in one room as the President gives his State of the Union address. Here's the lowdown on the annual speech - and what happens if the people running the country are all wiped out by a catastrophe. What is the State of the Union address?

Carol Cain Free Press Business Columnist Published 8:00 AM EDT Sep 22, 2018 Give Donald Trump credit for the tax breaks and regulatory reform that have taken place under his watch. But when it comes to serving as a role model for our nation, our 45th president deserves a resounding F, Jeb Bush says.

He told me he is done running for elected office. “I had my chance and gave it my all,” Bush said about his presidential run in 2016. “I was honored to be a candidate.” “There are different ways to make a … [Read more...] about Jeb Bush on President Donald Trump: ‘He’s not my role model’
