opinion Jason Sattler Opinion columnist Published 7:15 p.m. UTC May 23, 2018 What isn’t President Trump afraid of? Forget going under oath to testify for the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election. Trump even refuses to go on camera to be interviewed, unless the interviewer can pass for a giddy member of his fan club. Since Trump told NBC News’ Lester Holt that he was thinking about “this Russia thing with Trump and Russia” when he fired FBI Director James Comey on May 11, 2017, Trump has only consented to be interviewed on television 15 times. “He has given 11 interviews to Fox News and Fox Business, one to Christian Broadcasting Network’s Pat Robertson, one to Trinity Broadcasting Network’s Mike Huckabee, one to CNBC’s Joe Kernen, and one to ITV’s Piers Morgan,” reported John Kerr and Dina Radtke of Media Matters for America.

By Mike Allen (@mikeallen; [email protected]) and Daniel Lippman (@dlippman; [email protected]) BEING THERE -- “Trump security removes POLITICO reporter from rally,” by Ben Schreckinger in San Jose: “A Donald Trump campaign staffer and a private security guard removed [me] from a campaign rally here on Thursday evening for reporting at the event without the campaign’s permission. A campaign staffer spotted the reporter typing on a laptop outside of the press pen at the San Jose Convention Center and asked the reporter, who was attending on a general admission ticket, if he had press credentials. The Trump campaign has refused to credential the reporter for multiple events.

Every election cycle, a campaign tribute song emerges that has a catchy tune, a stirring chorus, and brings reasonable credit to a presidential candidate. In 2008, then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama was propped up with pop star Will.i.am's original "Yes We Can" tribute song. In 2012, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum had the "Game On" girls, two sisters who could carry a tune and produced a country song whose message reflected Santorum's conservative principles well. For the 2016 cycle, the USA Freedom Kids' rendition of "Freedom's Call" -- a pro-Donald Trump take on an old World War I propaganda anthem -- is probably not that song. Three of the USA Freedom Kids marched out Wednesday at Trump's crowded Pensacola, Florida rally to sing their hearts out as they performed simple dance steps. "Cowardice!" two of the pre-teen girls sang in opening, before Trump took the stage. Another young girl responded, gesticulating on stage: "Are you serious?!" It goes on: "Apologies for freedom?" … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo At Trump rally, USA Freedom Kids flaunt their “Ameritude”
Iconoclastic and irascible, outrageous and out-of-sight rich. These colorful personal traits, among others, are what the public knows about President-elect Donald Trump. But such characteristics say little about how Mr. Trump might manage a government that spends more than $4 trillion yearly once he assumes power on Jan. 20. Based on how the real estate mogul has run his businesses, election campaign and presidential transition, though, a picture does emerge of his likely presidential style -- as someone who is prone to managing by the seat of his pants, puts a premium on his personal negotiating skills and fosters a workplace of so-called “creative tension,” where his lieutenants will compete fiercely. Thus far, his cabinet and staff choices include a number of contentious types, like chief strategist Steve Bannon, which has not inspired public confidence. According to a Pew Research Center study, only 40 percent of respondents approved of his picks, versus 71 … [Read more...] about What kind of manager will President Donald Trump be?
Michael Davis seems to understand the art of the deal. In December, the real estate investor purchased President Donald Trump’s childhood home in Queens, New York, for $1.39 million. A month later he flipped it for $2.14 million, closing on the sale last week. That’s a 53 percent return on investment in one month, excluding real estate fees. The president’s father, Fred Trump, built the two-story Tudor-style home around 1940, according to Misha Haghani, managing principal at Paramount Realty USA, which coordinated the auction. The Trumps lived there for 10 years and then moved around the corner. “Clearly the fact that this is the childhood home of the current President of the United States increased the value of the property,” Haghani said by email. The five-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom house also has an eat-in-kitchen, formal dining room, fireplace, screened patio, den, finished basement, plenty of hardwood floors and a two-car garage. Davis … [Read more...] about Donald Trump’s childhood home sold at auction

Marco Rubio (R-Florida), continued to launch attacks against fellow Republican presidential candidates. Trump also elaborated on his criticism of President George W. Bush and the Iraq war.
