‘Exactly what the president needs’: Republican strategist pushes Kellyanne Conway for chief of staff

Published

on

President Donald Trump, who once worked as a reality TV star character hyped for his ability to hire and fire, is having a difficult time finding a third White House chief of staff.

“Let’s talk about Trump’s chief of staff woes,” MSNBC anchor Katy Tur suggested. “He announces John Kelly is leaving, everyone looks to Nick Ayers and oh, no Nick Ayers doesn’t want to stay.”

“That would be embarrassing for any presidency,” Tur added.

She noted a number of contenders, including Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), Yankees baseball team president Randy Levine, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker, former Trump campaign strategist David Bossie and Mick Mulvaney, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Newsmax, the online publication owned by Mar-a-lago member and Trump friend Christopher Ruddy has suggested Jared Kushner as White House chief of staff.

However, one of Tur’s guests had another name to add to the list. Republican strategist Susan Del Perico suggested counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway.

“Someone else who hasn’t been mentioned — and only in the Trump universe would this potentially work — is Kellyanne Conway,” Pel Perico argued.

“Kellyanne was campaign manager, she knows how to handle Trump,” she continued. “She’s been in the White House for two years, so she’s seen the operations.”

“I know people are going to go berzerk on Twitter, but she’s a very smart woman,” Del Perico added.

Some of President Donald Trump's "economic nationalist" allies are furious that Joe Biden beat the White House to the punch with a "Buy American" policy push.

The president's former chief strategist Steve Bannon told the Washington Post's Jeff Stein that Biden's $300 billion domestic spending proposal was "very smart," and said the likely Democratic nominee had scored a win.

"The campaign and White House have been caught flat-footed," Bannon said. "Biden has very smart people around him, particularly on the economic side."

Fox News pundit: Tax returns ruling against Trump is ‘a win for him’ and ‘will help the president’

Published

on

Fox News pundit Katie Pavlich argued on Thursday that a Supreme Court ruling which opened the door for prosecutors to obtain Donald Trump's tax returns is actually "a win" for the president.

Pavlich made the remarks after the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance can request the president's tax records in a public corruption case.

"I think it's a win and a little bit of a loss for President Trump," Pavlich explained. "In the sense that he will now have to deal with a number of these issues and other presidents in the future will as well, whether they are valid requests for information or not and whether they are being made for political for reasons or for valid criminal investigations."

Trump melts down on Twitter after his own Supreme Court nominees rebuke him on financial cases

Published

on

On Thursday, following the 7-2 rulings from the Supreme Court rejecting President Donald Trump's claims of absolute immunity in the New York tax returns and House financial oversight cases, the president took to Twitter to complain.

In the thread, Trump whined that he was being unfairly targeted by the Supreme Court decisions — which were joined by the two justices he appointed — and claimed he was a victim of "prosecutorial misconduct."

We have a totally corrupt previous Administration, including a President and Vice President who spied on my campaign, AND GOT CAIGHT...and nothing happens to them. This crime was taking place even before my election, everyone knows it, and yet all are frozen stiff with fear....
