ANALYSIS | Most of Donald Trump’s predecessors endorsed the notion of the buck stopping “here,” meaning on their desks. But for the 45th president, the buck often stops elsewhere. Trump sat down with Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace for a 15-minute interview that aired Sunday. Even though the sit-down in the White House’s Roosevelt Room was relatively brief, the president showed several times how just about everything political is fungible — especially when the stakes are high for himself. For instance, the president teased a handful of additional Cabinet and staff changes during the interview. Then he said he might just switch out two more officials. From his staff to whether he will sit down with Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III to the outcome of the midterm elections, Trump often makes declarative statements, while leaving just enough wiggle room to make one of his frequent changes of mind. ‘I won the Senate’ The midterms look … [Read more...] about Buck Stops Here? Not So Much for President Trump

By Patrick May | [email protected] | Bay Area News GroupPUBLISHED: November 13, 2018 at 11:08 am | UPDATED: November 13, 2018 at 11:09 am It took his sculpted-wax doppelganger to actually make the move, but Donald Trump on Monday went on display at Madame Tussauds in San Francisco, a city whose residents have been dying to give the president a piece of their mind. And to help make that possible, the museum will provide a bullhorn for guests to express their anger, or maybe, just once in a while, but certainly not too often, sing the president’s praises. Trump is, after all, a hugely unpopular figure here in the Golden State where hardly a day passes without the president tweeting something outrageous or demeaning or outrageously demeaning about California and its 40 million residents. In recent days, those awkward tweets have included well-wishes for the victims of the wildfires raging on two ends of the state followed promptly by a mean-spirited and largely … [Read more...] about President Trump finally makes it to San Francisco, orange hair and all
Richard Ruelas Arizona Republic Published 3:55 PM EDT Oct 20, 2018 Donald Trump was all business as he walked down the stairs from Air Force One after landing at Sky Harbor International Airport around 10 p.m. Thursday. There was no one there to greet his plane, which had whisked him from Missoula, Montana, where he had held a rally earlier that evening for a Republican locked in a tight battle with a Democrat for a U.S. Senate seat. Trump got into his waiting black limo, peered at his watch, hit the door frame with his hand and, according to television footage, appeared to bark at the driver to get going. So began Trump’s whirlwind 36 hours in Phoenix. Trump came to Arizona with a singular mission: to get voters excited about the midterms. His name was not on the ballot, but he needed supporters to believe it was. He was here to support U.S. Rep. Martha McSally in her bid for a U.S. Senate seat. McSally, a Congresswoman from southern … [Read more...] about President Trump’s Arizona visit wraps up after inspiring followers
If there's one question swirling around your office this morning, it's probably: Did Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America, really board Air Force One with toilet paper stuck to his shoe? Let's go to the tape. Here, we have a video posted by Politico journalist Beatrice-Elizabeth Peterson. She calls the video "100% real." The Washington Post concurs. "'Excuse me, Mr. President," the paper wrote, "'I believe you have some toilet paper stuck to your shoe' — said no one." While the paper hasn't been confirmed to be toilet paper, it does have the correct coloring and shape to be a piece of the tissue commonly found on a roll beside the toilet. In the video, Trump is seen leaving a limo, meaning he had the paper stuck to his shoe likely, unless presidential limos also have bathrooms, for quite some time. Trump has so far not tweeted about the incident. -- Lizzy Acker [email protected], @lizzzyacker Follow @lizzzyacker … [Read more...] about Did President Trump really board Air Force One with toilet paper stuck to his shoe?
Bill Speros Golfweek Published 8:31 p.m. UTC Aug 26, 2018 The subject of Tiger Woods and his relationship with President Trump was brought up during a news conference Sunday following Woods' final-round 70 at The Northern Trust. Woods did his best to avoid being partisan or provocative when asked the following question: "At times, especially 2018, I think a lot of people, especially immigrants are threatened by him and his policy — what do you say to people who might find it interesting that you have a friendly relationship with him?" His answer was less than a full endorsement of the president's agenda: "He's the President of the United States. You have to respect the office. No matter who is in the office, you may like, dislike personality or the politics, but we all must respect the office." Trump has been a golfing partner of Woods and the two have known each other for a number of years.
