‘Just go play golf’: Ivana Trump advises Donald to give up on running in 2020



Businesswoman and former model Ivana Trump, perhaps best-known for being Donald Trump’s first wife, says her former husband shouldn’t run for re-election in 2020.

“I’ll tell you something, I don’t think it’s necessary,” she tells The New York Post’s “Page Six.”

 “He has a good life and he has everything. Donald is going to be 74, 73 for the next [election] and maybe he should just go and play golf and enjoy his fortune,” she advised. “I think he probably [misses] a little bit of freedom.”

President Trump on Sunday was at Mar-a-Lago, his 149th day at a Trump property while being president. Over the past week he has golfed – or at least been at his Florida golf course – at least five times.

Ivana Trump, who remains close to her former husband and is the mother of Donald Jr., Eric, and Ivanka Trump, also suggested that the president might be in over his head.

“I don’t think he probably knew how much is involved of being the president. It’s so [much] information — you have to know the whole world,” she acknowledged.

She had some advice for the Senior Advisor to the President, her daughter, Ivanka: Move back to New York and give up your job in the White House. “Politics is a very dirty business,” she told The Post. “In [fashion], she would be her own boss.”


And the first Mrs. Donald Trump had a few words for Donald Trump Jr.’s soon-to-be ex-wife. The president’s eldest son and Vanessa Trump are divorcing. Rumors are Donald Jr. had an affair.

“I think Vanessa knew it all along and maybe she just couldn’t get over the hurt to forgive him. But I honestly don’t know that many men who can keep their zippers up.”

But she admitted that when she learned Donald Trump cheated on her with Marla Maples, who became his second wife, she was very hurt.

“I divorced Donald immediately [after I discovered the Maples affair] because I told myself, ‘Am I going to live with the person [who] is going to say, ‘I’m going to go and play golf’ [leaving me to] think, ‘Is he really going to go and play golf?’ I cannot do it.”

On the Stormy Daniels scandal, Ivana Trump said, “I feel bad for [Melania] because I know how bad I did feel. It hurts a lot.”

Trump considering withdrawal from 68-year-old treaty with Japan: report



President Donald Trump has been privately talking about withdrawing from the postwar defense treaty with Japan, according to three sources familiar with the matter.

Trump is telling confidants the treaty is unfair to the U.S. because it promises to help if Japan was ever attacked, but doesn't require Japan to come to America's defense, the sources told Bloomberg.

So far, the president hasn't taken any step toward pulling out of the treaty, which was signed in 1951, and administration officials insist that move would be highly unlikely.

Rep. Ted Lieu: Impeachment is coming — and so is a Democratic president



Donald Trump recently called “impeachment” a “dirty, filthy, disgusting word,” but his continued stonewalling of legitimate congressional oversight requests are moving more and more House Democrats to embrace that “filthy” concept. That was the very point made by Rep. Ted Lieu of California, a progressive Democrat who sits on the House Judiciary Committee during our recent conversation on “Salon Talks.” That committee would be the starting point for an actual impeachment inquiry of the president.

New report targets 15 House Democrats who ‘deserve’ progressive primary challengers



As progressive candidates continue to announce their intentions to oust corporate Democrats, a new report names 15 House Democrats to unseat in primary challenges.

Published Monday by the left-leaning group RootsAction, the new report is entitled Bad Blues: Some of the House Democrats Who Deserve to Be 'Primaried.'

The list, the report notes, "is by no means exhaustive—only illustrative."

"There may well be a Democratic member of Congress near you not included here who serves corporate interests more than majority interests, or has simply grown tired or complacent in the never-ending struggles for social, racial, and economic justice as well as environmental sanity and peace," the report notes. "Perhaps you live in a district where voters are ready to be inspired by a progressive primary candidate because the Democrat in Congress is not up to the job."

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
