Eric and Tiffany Trump are less culpable because they ‘weren’t as favored’ by their dad: Trump biographer

Published

on

A Trump biographer on Friday responded to news that both Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. were heavily involved in a project to build a Trump Tower in Moscow — and noted that there may be members of the family who are less implicated.

Pulitzer-winning reporter Michael D’Antonio told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin that although Ivanka and Don Jr., the two most visible of the Trump children, are on the hook for the allegations made by BuzzFeed News last night, their siblings Eric and Tiffany are less so.

“The irony in all of this is that Eric Trump and Tiffany Trump are the two of the younger generation who may be outside of consideration for this problem because they weren’t as favored by the president,” he said.

D’Antonio noted earlier in the interview that Ivanka’s carefully-worded denial of the report is part of “a family tradition of speaking very carefully so that you can appear to deny knowledge of something without actually coming forth and saying, ‘I absolutely had no contact.'”

‘RIP GOP’: Polling expert predicts devastating Trump 2020 electoral wipeout

Published

on

Democratic pollster and strategist Stanley Greenberg went on CNN Monday to explain why he believes President Donald Trump and the Republican Party are headed toward a historic and humiliating defeat in the 2020 elections.

In an interview with CNN's John Berman, Greenberg discussed his new book called "RIP GOP" in which he makes a case that Trump's presidency has shifted public opinion in Democrats' favor while repelling moderate voters from the Republican Party.

"I think what happened going into 2016 is Donald Trump took over the Tea Party base of the party, allied it with evangelicals and took the party to a very extreme end," he said. "I believe... Donald Trump's election will speed the defeat of the Republican Party because of its dominance by the Tea Party and evangelicals, which won't consider compromise, which won't consider a multicultural America in a part of our future. And I also thought it would speed up the resistance and also people's consciousness of what they believe and their values, and all of that has happened."

Ex-Trump official warns against president’s Iran warmongering: ‘Predictable irrationality’

Published

on

On Monday, former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci warned that President Donald Trump's Iran diplomacy is in serious jeopardy.

"It’s a super serious situation, so I just want to talk very precisely," said Scaramucci. "There’s three issues going on now. One, because there’s a vacuum of leadership inside the White House. He’s more or less moved out everybody that could potentially disagree with him or offer some level of dissent. When the leader of the free world continues to use the words locked and loaded, it’s the opposite of somebody like Teddy Roosevelt. Speak softly and carry a large stick. And this is send out military threats over Twitter. It’s a precarious situation. I think it’s very, very serious."

Condi Rice deflects Trump’s racism by saying slavery was just ‘a number of people being treated badly’

Published

on

Former National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice on Sunday blamed Democrats for racism after she was asked about President Donald Trump's controversial bigoted statements.

During an interview on CNN, host Fareed Zakaria asked Rice about some of Trump's most racist statements, like telling Democratic congresswomen to "go back" where they came from. And when he said there were good people on "both sides" at a neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville.

"When you hear Trump, this is a repudiation of everything you were trying to do," Zakaria pointed out.

"The president needs to be a lot more careful," Rice agreed. "Race is a very delicate and raw nerve in America. We have the birth defect of slavery, we have the birth defect of a number of people being treated badly."
