President Donald Trump defended the actions of Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha, Wisconsin, saying the 17-year-old ‘probably would have been killed’ by an angry mob if he hadn’t fired at them with the illegal gun he was carrying.

‘He was trying to get away from them I guess, it looks like, and he fell on then they very violently attacked him,’ Trump said in response to a question from on Monday.

‘It was something that we are looking at right now and it’s under investigation, but

Donald Trump has tweeted that it ‘sounds like a good idea’ to put him on Mount Rushmore, after the New York Times claimed that a White House aide reached out to the governor of South Dakota to discuss the plan. The president, who has long floated the idea, denied on Sunday evening that he had ever requested having himself added to the monument. But, he said, it was a fine idea, given his accomplishments. ‘This is Fake News by the failing @nytimes & bad ratings @cnn,’ he tweeted, in response

President Trump gave a fiery address at Mount Rushmore Friday night claiming that the ‘left-wing cultural revolution’ aimed to overthrow the American Revolution, painting a dark picture of the Black Lives Matter protests that have rocked the nation.

On the eve of the Fourth of July holiday, Trump’s message was about us versus them, calling those who didn’t support him ‘bad, evil people.’

He tossed red meat to a packed crowd of supporters – a majority of whom were not wearing masks nor pract

Nearly eight years after he was last on the ballot, Barack Obama is emerging as a central figure in the 2020 presidential election.

Democrats are eagerly embracing Obama as a political wingman for Joe Biden, who spent two terms by his side as vice president. Obama remains the party’s most popular figure, particularly with black voters and younger Democrats, and Biden’s presidential campaign is planning for him to have a highly visible role in the months to come.

For President Donald Trump, th

With rare bipartisanship and speed, Washington is about to deliver massive, unprecedented legislation to speed help to individuals and businesses as the coronavirus pandemic takes a devastating toll on the U.S. economy and health care system.

The House is set to pass the sprawling, $2.2 trillion measure Friday morning after an extraordinary 96-0 Senate vote late Wednesday. President Donald Trump marveled at the unanimity Thursday and is eager to sign the package into law.

One day, President Donald Trump boasted of “smooth” coronavirus testing across the country. The next day, he pronounced the testing system inadequate, and assailed the public-health bureaucracy, Barack Obama and Joe Biden for not fixing it before he became president.

But nothing changed in that system over those two days — Thursday and Friday — except Trump’s stated opinion of it.

Trump has been saying inaccurately for days that the public health system was up and ready to give access to di

President Donald Trump addressed the annual Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday afternoon at the Gaylord National Resort & Conference Center in National Harbor, Maryland.

CPAC was familiar territory for Trump, who has given speeches at the largest gathering of conservatives in the United States every year since becoming president.

During his speech that lasted well over an hour before a large passionate crowd, Trump touched on several different topics, among them the e

MIAMI (AP) — Highlighting his record on religious liberty, President Donald Trump on Friday worked to energize a group of evangelical supporters who make up an influential piece of his political base that could prove vital in battleground states.

You may say that’s fantasy and that Michelle Obama isn’t interested. I say don’t dismiss the possibility. The political climate is such that very powerful and influential figures will appeal to her that the country needs her to step forth and serve in this “desperate time.”

7 compelling reasons

1. President Trump can convincingly defeat any of the current candidates who come across as angry and somewhat crazy. Michelle Obama would be a formidable opponent.

2. She’s the one who supposed

A planned summit on race Donald Trump agreed last week to host at the White House is in disarray and unlikely to take place before this year’s elections, if at all, can reveal.

Trump had been said to be ‘totally 100 percent for it’ by an outside adviser, Pastor Darrell Scott. ‘Now we’re just dotting the i’s crossing the t’s getting the logistics in place,’ Scott said Thursday after an Oval Office meeting with Trump.

Scott said then that Kanye West would be the most significant

About a year ago, President Trump pledged to eliminate the national debt "over a period of eight years." But for the first time in history, the national debt surpassed $21 trillion this week, according to the U.S. Treasury. 

The landmark comes shortly after Congress passed, and Mr. Trump signed, a suspension on the federal debt limit last month, allowing the government to borrow an unlimited amount of money until March 1, 2019.

When Mr. Trump took office on Jan. 20, 2017, the national debt was

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson is cancelling an order for a $31,000 dining set for his office, according to a statement obtained by CNN. “I was as surprised as anyone to find out that a $31,000 dining set had been ordered,” the statement from Carson read. “I made it known that I was not happy about the prices being charged and that my preference would be to find something more reasonable.” The mahogany dining set in question included a “table, sideb

When it comes to the Stormy Daniels story, it is hard for me to understand the silence from evangelical Christians.

Let it sink in: It is now confirmed that the president’s personal lawyer paid a porn star for her silence.

After the story broke, a friend sent me an old article from a left-wing website.

Democrats, the story said, beat themselves up for not better understanding white, Christian support for President Trump.

But that is a fool’s errand, the writer argued, because there is no und
