  • Iran's Foreign Minister Claims Europe Siding Against Trump On Nuclear Deal

    On Tuesday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif bashed President Donald Trump ahead of what appears certain to become a showdown over the legacy of former President Barack Obama's top foreign policy achievement, the Iran Nuclear Deal. Zarif said in an interview with Politico that Europe is taking Iran's side over the continued recertification of the Iran deal. Trump has reportedly been looking for a way out of the deal by finding "foolproof intelligence" that Iran has violated the deal. However, Trump and his understaffed State Department have reportedly strained relationships in Europe, weakening the US's stance on renegotiation.

  • White House Slams The Bush Family After H W Calls Trump A "Blowhard"

    On Saturday, the White House struck back at the Bush family, following criticism about President Donald Trump from both former presidents in the prominent Republican family. In historian Mark Updegrove's new book, The Last Republicans, former president George H W Bush was quoted saying in May of 2016 that Trump was a "blowhard." Bush told Updegrove, "I don't like him. I don't know much about him, but I know he's a blowhard. And I'm not too excited about him being a leader." In response, a White House official told CNN, "If one presidential candidate can dissemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had. And that begins with the Iraq War, one of the greatest foreign policy mistakes in American history."

    President Donald Trump used forecasts for what could be record-breaking cold weather over New Year’s Eve to push a widely disproven talking point denying climate change. “Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against,” he wrote. The Trump White House is staffed with some of the most high-profile climate change deniers in American politics ― including Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke ― who have quickly worked to dismantle parts of former President Barack Obama’s vast climate legacy.

  • This May Be Trump's Biggest Legacy

    Yesterday, the US Senate confirmed Greg Katsas to the D.C. Court of Appeals. This is the ninth appeals court judge confirmed since Trump took office., compared to Obamas three at the same point in his presidency. In terms of impact, the D. C. Court of Appeals is probably the most important circuit in the nation as virtually all regulatory issues end up before that court. Republicans have struggled to get any meaningful legislation passed in recent months. At this rate, Donald Trump’s signature accomplishment is going to be stocking the courts with young, conservative jurists who will shape American jurisprudence for the next forty years.
