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?

WATERLOO, Iowa -- The disco ball in the Electric Ballroom at the National Cattle Congress never comes down. Except today. The giant 3-ft wide ball covered in mini mirrors, it seems, will obstruct the TV cameras' view of Donald Trump's campaign rally. So workers drag two ladders onto the dance floor and lower the mirror-laden disco ball to the floor, then carry it into a dishware closet. Sitting in at the dimly lit bar on Tuesday afternoon with a bag of pretzels and a Diet Pepsi, concessions manager Karen Coffin stares at the ceiling above the dance floor with narrowed eyes. She really didn't want to see the ball come down because it has presided over every event she has been a part of in that ballroom. Coffin says in August, she pitched the idea of hosting Trump at the Black Hawk County Republican fundraiser to his state director, Chuck Laudner, who is fond of the venue. Laudner and Coffin traded business cards over the sizzling roast beef meal that Coffin was serving. Two weeks ago, … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo How a Donald Trump campaign event comes together
Donald Trump's treatment of women has been attracting attention at least since Fox News' Megyn Kelly posed a question to him in the first GOP debate, in which she noted that he's called some women demeaning names and made disparaging remarks about the appearance of others. That began a months-long spat between the two, although they eventually reached a detente.On Saturday, more scrutiny came with The New York Times' publication of its story, "Crossing the Line: How Donald Trump Behaved with Women in Private," in which its authors interviewed dozens of women who had encountered Trump personally or professionally over the past 40 years.The Times piece opened with an anecdote about Rowanne Brewer Lane, a 26-year-old model who met Trump in 1990 at a pool party at his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida, and who subsequently dated him for several months. Barbara Res, who worked for Trump as his head of construction in the 1980s, talked to the Times about her interactions with him at the time.

With everything from Brexit to the Iran nuclear deal to Russian hackers in the headlines this fall, foreign policy is playing a major role in the 2016 presidential campaign. And America’s relationship with the rest of the world plays a big part in Republican nominee Donald Trump’s overall platform: his now-famous slogan, “Make America Great Again,” is a reference to his view that the United States no longer holds the esteem and power in the world that it once did. Trump has pitched an “America First” foreign policy, a phrase that was first used to discourage U.S. involvement in World War II. “Americanism, not globalism, will be our credo,” he said during his acceptance speech at the Republican convention this summer. “As long as we are led by politicians who will not put America first, then we can be assured that other nations will not treat America with respect. This will all change in 2017.” Here are some key components of … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Where Donald Trump stands on foreign policy
PUEBLO, Colo. -- Hillary Clinton has said before that she and Donald Trump couldn’t be more different, but on Wednesday, the Democratic nominee strived to create one of the clearest contrasts yet with her opponent. As news outlets reported Trump would unleash a brutal “scorched-earth” strategy in the next four weeks, Clinton seemed to be trying to do the opposite. “I am tired of all the divisions and the barriers,” she said at a rally at the state fairgrounds in Pueblo. “I want to bring people together across our party lines, across any lines that divide us. And not just people that vote for me -- I want to be the president, yes, for Democrats, but also Republicans and Independents.” The Democratic nominee denounced Trump’s “unshackled” style on the stump. “His campaign said today that they’re going to use a, quote, “scorched-earth” strategy for the remaining four weeks,” she said. “That … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Hillary Clinton calls Donald Trump’s scorched-earth strategy “desperate”
