Rapper Kanye West, who is running a so-far unsuccessful spoiler presidential campaign against former Vice President Joe Biden, reportedly met with Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner over the weekend.

The New York Times reports that West met with Kushner over the weekend, although the paper does not have details about what the two men discussed.

West told the Times that “they had discussed a book about Black empowerment called ‘PowerNomics,'” but declined to elaborate further on the conversation. According to the Times, West also “expressed anger about abortion rates among Black women and said he didn’t reflexively support Democrats.”

West’s campaign is widely seen as an attempt to draw Black voters away from the Democratic presidential ticket, although a recent Morning Consult poll found that West is drawing just two percent of Black voters and is not making a dent in Biden’s lead overall.

Published

Veteran attorneys are shocked by Attorney General William Barr's intervention in November's election on behalf of President Donald Trump.

The Department of Justice has declassified or disclosed sensitive materials related to the prosecution of Michael Flynn, a Senate investigation into the Russia probe and the investigation of discarded absentee ballots in Pennsylvania -- which set off alarms among legal experts, reported Politico.

“These actions are not typical,” said William Jeffress, who served as former President Richard Nixon's defense attorney after he left the White House. “Tradition is that politically sensitive actions by DOJ go dark at least 60 days before an election.”

Ex-Trump aides say the president regularly mocks his evangelical supporters behind their backs

Published

on

Former aides to President Donald Trump tell The Atlantic's McKay Coppins that the president regularly mocks his own evangelical Christian followers behind their backs.

In particular, the aides say the president sees many evangelicals in the same way that he reportedly sees American soldiers who died during World War I as "suckers" and "losers."

"Former aides told me they’ve heard Trump ridicule conservative religious leaders, dismiss various faith groups with cartoonish stereotypes, and deride certain rites and doctrines held sacred by many of the Americans who constitute his base," Coppins writes.
