President Trump entered office facing the worst ratio of debt to gross domestic product of any new president in American history except Harry Truman — an onerous 77 percent. So, like many presidents before him — including, most recently, President Barack Obama, who had to respond to the economic crisis he inherited — President Trump is faced with the choice of whether and how to confront a looming situation not of his own making.

Trump’s Budget Doesn’t Make Sense

As he said that at a news conference, Mr. Tillerson was standing next to the Saudi foreign minister, Adel al-Jubeir, who represents a government that does not guarantee free speech or many other rights. When Mr. Tillerson turned to leave, a reporter asked if he had anything to say about human rights in Saudi Arabia. The secretary departed without answering.

To Trump, Human Rights Concerns Are Often a Barrier to Trade

President Barack Obama offered a retort when he later appeared on “The Daily Show.”  “It doesn’t matter how smart you are,” Obama said. “. . . If you’re not getting their perspective, their detailed perspective, then you are flying blind.”

How President Trump consumes — or does not consume — top-secret intelligence

Trump likes his briefings to be concise and conversational, and “killer graphics” are great, too.

So then there are tapes?  No, no, there aren’t.  Shocker of shockers: Donald Trump was utterly confusing at his news conference on Friday afternoon. But I don’t think he was confused.

Trump Speaks!

President Barack Obama signaled when he left office that he'd largely stay out of U.S. politics, as former presidents traditionally do, but would break his silence to weigh in on “issues or certain moments where I think our core values may be at stake.”

President Obama just made it clear: He’s now part of the anti-GOP resistance

Secretary of Education nominee Betsy DeVos may have plagiarized an Obama administration official when responding to senators’ questions regarding her qualifications for the job.

Did Betsy DeVos plagiarize some answers in her Senate questionnaire?

In her written responses to questions from Senate Democrats, education secretary nominee Betsy DeVos seems to have lifted quotations from an Obama administration official.

McGarry's service ended before the Islamic State's rise, so it's not like Ossoff was claiming to have done what McGarry actually did. The attack made no sense, unless considered as tribalism.  And then it made perfect sense.

Georgia’s lesson: All politics is tribal.

The city's mayor, a Democrat, has transformed the downtown to make it a livable, walkable place for professionals. And despite the partisan strife in Washington, local Republicans – at least, many of those who live or work in the city – have come around to back the strategy, which turns traditional economic development on its head.

Trump’s dream of blue-collar jobs? In Kokomo, success calls for more.

During remarks to the press with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem today, President Trump was asked whether he had any concerns about intelligence cooperation with the United States. “Just so you understand,” Trump responded, “I never mentioned the word or the name Israel, never mentioned it during that conversation. They’re all saying I did. So you had another story wrong. Never mentioned the word Israel.”

On his trip abroad, Trump is being graded on a massive curve. He’s done nothing to deserve it.

Undated photo of people chatting over a bucket of beer in Belleville, IL - It’s horrible that some one felt driven to shoot people. It’s terrible that some people were hurt and many people were terrorized. But horrible and terrible stories are in the news every single day.
