President Donald Trump is thrilled with the conclusion of the Robert Mueller investigation, but also angry, according to White House officials. White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley spoke about the president’s reaction to the conclusion of the investigation during an interview with Breitbart News editor-in-chief Alex Marlow on Monday on SiriusXM Patriot.“I spoke to the president about this, I was at Mar-a-Lago with him when this all started coming down, and he was obviously very happy with the outcome, but he made the point to me, ‘I’m angry, do you think it’s ok to be angry?'” Gidley said. “I said absolutely, you should be and I think the American people should be.” Gidley reminded supporters of the president that the investigation was a brutal process that lasted close to three years, based on a phony dossier. He continued: Remember this was June 2016, it’s closer to three years worth of an investigation in which … [Read more...] about White House: Donald Trump ‘Happy’ but ‘Angry’ over Mueller Report Conclusion

POLITICS 02/04/2019 04:58 pm ET Updated 1 hour ago The president who spoke of “American carnage” in his inaugural address likely won't stick to his State of the Union themes beyond a day or two. By S.V. Date WASHINGTON — If history is any guide, President Donald Trump will head to Capitol Hill Tuesday night and call for unity, bipartisanship and a trillion-dollar-plus infrastructure package to fix the nation’s roads and bridges. And if history is any guide, he will within days or even hours of his State of the Union address let loose divisive attacks against Democrats and other critics and veer off on unrelated tangents. There will not be any infrastructure package. “When he tries to be presidential, it just isn’t believable,” said David Jolly, a former Republican congressman from Florida. “Even when he speaks rationally, no one trusts him.

President Donald Trump declared Friday he could keep parts of the government shut down for "months or even years" as he and Democratic leaders failed in a second closed-door meeting to resolve his demand for billions of dollars for a border wall with Mexico. They did agree to a new round of weekend talks between staff members and White House officials. Trump met in the White House Situation Room with congressional leaders from both parties as the shutdown hit the two-week mark amid an impasse over his wall demands. Democrats emerged from the roughly two-hour meeting, which both sides said was contentious at times, to report little if any progress. The standoff also prompted economic jitters and anxiety among some in Trump's own party. But he appeared in the Rose Garden to frame the upcoming weekend talks as progress, while making clear he would not reopen the government. "We won't be opening until it's solved," Trump said. "I don't call it a shutdown. I call it doing what you have to … [Read more...] about After White House Meeting, Trump Says Government Shutdown Could Last Months or Years
