The coverage may have been extensive enough that her estranged husband Donald Trump Jr. became jealous of the attention she was getting and launched a counter-gossip offensive of his own, Vanity Fair theorizes. According to this theory, someone from Trump Jr.’s camp, or even Trump Jr. himself, leaked the story that he has already “moved on” from his failed 12-year-old marriage to Vanessa and is dating Kimberly Guilfoyle, the glamorous Fox News host and long-time friend of the Trump family. “Crank up the Trump Tower Page Six siren: looks like we’ve got an old-fashioned gossip war on our hands,” Vanity Fair suggested in a column … [Read more...] about Did Donald Trump Jr. leak Kimberly Guilfoyle romance story for this petty reason?

William Booth, The Washington Post Published 6:44 am, Saturday, March 31, 2018 LONDON - If he knocked on your door, Shahmir Sanni might not be what you would expect of a campaigner for Brexit, Britain's historic - now wrenching, all-consuming - decision to leave the European Union. Sanni is a young, hip, gay Muslim, a Pakistani Briton who studied economics at his university, loves fashion and is an American-style libertarian, a committed "euroskeptic." He does not want less immigration to the United Kingdom; he wants more. But he wants London, not Brussels, to be in control. He describes himself as "sassy." Once an anonymous college-age volunteer, Sanni is now front-page news in Britain, as a whistleblower who alleges that pro-Brexit campaigners in 2016 "cheated" - specifically that a prominent group run by top Tories, including now-Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, broke election law by coordinating campaigns among allied organizations to circumvent spending caps. The … [Read more...] about Did Brexit campaigners cheat? And if they did, what does that mean?
Analysis Donald Trump Kim Jong Un John Bolton In 2003, when George W. Bush was president, the White House undertook a new effort to get North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons program. It did so by working with four other countries—South Korea, China, Japan and Russia. These so-called six-party talks’ were a yearslong, often frustrating diplomatic effort, and in the middle of it, I sat down with a negotiator from one of the parties, a diplomat who had become one of my best sources in the region. Normally, he was calm. But when I mentioned John Bolton, the former Bush administration official who had helped scuttle a previous nuclear agreement between the U.S. and Pyongyang, the diplomat’s equanimity evaporated. “John Bolton,” he spat, “is the reason North Korea has multiple nuclear weapons today.” The diplomat was overstating his case. But the mere fact that he said it was revealing—especially now that President Donald Trump has … [Read more...] about Donald Trump, Kim Jong Un, John Bolton and the Road to War in North Korea
After months of wading into presidential waters with shallow foreign policy proposals -- including bombing "the s*** out of" terror groups and inking a "totally renegotiated" nuclear deal with Iran -- Donald Trump is finally jumping into the deep end. During an interview with the New York Times that spanned two phone calls and clocked in at 100 minutes, Trump, answering a bevy of foreign policy questions with his trademark bravado, outlined an "America First" vision for the world that would come to fruition with business deals and tough negotiations. "I'm not isolationist, but I am 'America First.' So I like the expression. I'm 'America First,'" Trump said, according to the Times' transcript, which was published Saturday. Trump glommed on to the term, once used as the name for an isolationist political party in the U.S. in the 1940s, after the Times' David Sanger suggested it. "We have been disrespected, mocked and ripped off for many, many years by people that were smarter, shrewder, … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo What Donald Trump’s “America First” vision of the world looks like
DAYTONA BEACH, FL - Donald Trump's day in a nutshell: At a rally in Virginia, Trump accepted the gift of a Purple Heart, an honor given to service members who are killed or wounded, from a retired veteran and said, "I always wanted to get the Purple Heart. This was much easier." At the same speech, Trump ordered that a crying baby be escorted out of the room - and it was unclear whether he was kidding. Then, Trump left the rally to have lunch with a Washington Post reporter, where he informed the reporter that he wasn't endorsing House Speaker Paul Ryan in his primary campaign ("I'm not quite there yet," he explained) or Sen. John McCain in his. Both Ryan and McCain have endorsed Trump for president. In that same conversation, Trump decried recent rulings about voter ID laws that have faced defeats in federal courts, saying "We may have people vote 10 times... If you don't have voter ID, you can just keep voting and voting and voting." If you're wondering, we're still in the nutshell, … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Donald Trump goes on the offensive against everyone
Just as polls in key battleground states show him lagging behind rival Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump stoked fears of voter fraud in Pennsylvania Friday, pushing his supporters to police polling places on Election Day for any "cheating." "The only way we can lose in my opinion -- I really mean this, Pennsylvania -- is if cheating goes on," Trump told rally attendees Friday evening during an event in Altoona. "I really believe it." Trump, who attended college at the University of Pennsylvania, went on to say that he knew the state "well" and that he had been "studying it." "Because I looked at Erie and it was the same thing as this. We have some great people here. Some great leaders here of the Republican party, and they're very concerned about that," said Trump, who was introduced at the rally by Republican National Committee chair Reince Priebus. "And that's the way we can lose the state." The GOP nominee then called for further policing in the state on Nov. 8, the day of the … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Donald Trump: I’ll only lose Pennsylvania “if cheating goes on”
NEW YORK -- Howard Stern doesn’t plan to air old interviews with Donald Trump featuring the now Republican presidential candidate discussing his sexual exploits. The talk show host said Monday on his SiriusXM show that he wouldn’t dig into his archives to replay any of the roughly 50 interviews he’s conducted with Trump over the years. “I feel Donald Trump did the show in an effort to be entertaining and have fun with us,” Stern said. “I feel like it would be a betrayal to any of our guests if I sat there and played them now (when) people are attacking him.” Stern, who has publicly supported Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, noted that his conversations with Trump were broadcast and not “done in private like the Billy Bush tapes.” “I knew I had a guy who loved to talk about sex,” Stern said. “I had a guy who loved to evaluate women on a scale of 1 to 10. These are avenues I went down because I knew … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Howard Stern on chances he’ll air old Donald Trump interviews
PENSACOLA, Florida “It’s feeling like it already,” Donald Trump said of winning the White House, less than a week before votes would be tallied. And then the GOP nominee seemed to lapse into an internal monologue. “We’ve gotta be nice and cool,” Trump said at his last rally of the day. “Nice and cool. All right? Stay on point, Donald. Stay on point. No sidetracks, Donald.” He closed his self-administered public pep talk by repeating the word, “Niceeee…” He hung on to it for emphasis. “Because I’ve been watching Hillary the last few days,” Trump continued. “She’s totally unhinged. We don’t want any of that. She has become unhinged.” Call it Trump 5.0. This iteration of the blustery businessman is showing a laser-like focus. In three campaign stops around Florida on Wednesday, Trump kept his deviations from the teleprompter to a minimum – for … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo “Stay on point, Donald,” Trump tells himself in Pensacola
The fabulously rich candidate becomes the hero of working-class people by identifying with their economic distress. That formula worked for Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1930s. Today, Donald Trump's campaign benefits from a similar populist appeal to beleaguered, white, blue-collar voters -- his key constituency. Trump's thumping victory in Tuesday's New York primary renews his momentum as he struggles to overcome the GOP establishment's efforts to block him from seizing the party's presidential nomination. If he continues to win as big as he did in his home state, he may have the delegates needed to prevail in the party convention in Cleveland in July. How can someone born to wealth so ably channel what frankly is class resentment to become his party's front-runner and very likely its nominee? By depicting himself as a rebel among his plutocratic peers, showing a common touch and promising to bestow financial manna on the working stiff. The psychological enticement is powerful, and … [Read more...] about How class resentment is fueling Donald Trump’s run
This was one deal The Donald couldn’t close. The twice-divorced leader of the free world tried and failed to convince Vanessa Trump that her failing 12-year marriage to son Donald Jr. was worth saving. “The President tried to intervene with Vanessa,” according to a source with ties to the Trump family. “He’s personally upset ... Donald Trump failed as (a) marriage counselor.” According to our insider, the President suggested the couple stick it out a little longer — even though he knew of their issues prior to the couple’s last public outing, a 40th birthday party for Don Jr. on New Year’s Eve at Mar-a-lago.
