“He Said, Hitler Did Some Good Things”: Ex-Chief Of Staff Says Trump Praised Hitler In White House
"Former President Donald Trump praised German dictator Adolf Hitler while in the White House, former chief of staff John Kelly told CNN. Trump repeatedly praised authoritarian leaders while serving as president, Kelly and other former senior advisers told CNN’s Jim Sciutto. Trump praised Chinese leader Xi Jinping, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and Russian President Vladimir Putin, the former aides said. But his most unnerving praise was for Hitler. “He said, ‘Well, but Hitler did some good things.’ I said, ‘Well, what?’ And he said, ‘Well, [Hitler] rebuilt the economy.’ But what did he do with that rebuilt economy? He turned it against his own people and against the world. And I said, ‘Sir, you can never say anything good about the guy. Nothing,’” Kelly recalled, according to Sciutto. “I mean, Mussolini was a great guy in comparison.”"

Arizona Senior Citizens Anticipate Cuts To Social Security And Medicare Under Trump And GOP
"As reported in Vox, one of the opening battles of the Republican presidential primary—cuts to Social Security. And even though former President Donald Trump says he won’t cut Americans’ Social Security and Medicare benefits many point to promise as an absurd proposition—why, because he’s made similar promises in the past, and they were lies. In Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign he repeatedly pledged that he wouldn’t cut Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid but after he entered office, his pledge all but evaporated. Each one of Trump’s White House budget proposals included cuts to Medicare and Social Security."

WW3 Fears Mount: Donald Trump Sparks New Concerns After 'Encouraging' Russia To Attack NATO Countries
"Donald Trump sparked fresh World War 3 concerns this weekend after he “encouraged” Russia to attack certain NATO countries, can report. Trump’s shocking remarks came on Saturday during a 2024 campaign rally in South Carolina. Trump’s shocking remarks came on Saturday during a 2024 campaign rally in South Carolina. According to the former president-turned-GOP presidential frontrunner, he “encourages” Russia to “do whatever the h--- they want” to NATO countries that fail to spend at least 2% of their gross domestic product on the military. The 45th president even recounted an alleged conversation he shared with an unspecified president of a NATO country who challenged Trump’s pledge not to defend their country from a potential Russian invasion."

Negotiators Release $118 Billion Border Bill As GOP Leaders Call It Dead In The House
"After months of negotiations, a trio of Senate negotiators unveiled a $118 billion bipartisan agreement to overhaul some key Biden administration immigration policies. But the legislation is already hitting a brick wall in the House where GOP leaders are declaring it "dead on arrival." "The deal creates a real opportunity for Congress to address our borders and make progress to a more efficient and well-resourced system," Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., told reporters after details of the proposal were released. The bill is part of a national security funding package that includes additional money for Ukraine and Israel. But as the issue of the border becomes a central flashpoint in the 2024 presidential campaign, and former President Trump publicly urges GOP lawmakers to oppose the deal, the prospects for the bill reaching President Biden's desk seem bleak."

'Need The Chaos': Trump And Kari Lake Buried In Editorial For Wanting U.S. To 'Lose Big'
"Former President Donald Trump and failed Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake were blasted by columnist E.J. Montini in The Arizona Republic Wednesday for relying on — and fighting to perpetuate — chaos at the border as a "campaign strategy." This comes as President Joe Biden and Senate Republicans have struck up a bipartisan plan that would tighten border security and implement several GOP policy goals — but it appears headed for a dead end as Trump heavily lobbies House and Senate Republicans to kill the deal and Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) has said he's unlikely to allow it a vote. "A bipartisan deal to address the border problem is the best thing for the country," wrote Montini. "But it is the worst thing for Donald Trump, who has made the border crisis the key element — if not the only element — of his campaign. The same is true of sycophants like U.S. Senate candidate Kari Lake, who follows, head bowed, in Trump’s footsteps.""

Donald Trump Is Preparing For A Massive New Trade War With China
"the GOP front-runner has endorsed downgrading China’s trade status with the United States — a move that would lead tariffs between the world’s two largest economies to skyrocket. Revoking China’s status as a “most favored nation” for trade — which is applied to almost all countries the United States trades with — could lead to federal tariffs on Chinese imports of more than 40 percent, according to one analysis. Trump has floated imposing a 10 percent tariff on nearly all $3 trillion in annual imports from all countries, including China. Privately, Trump has discussed with advisers the possibility of imposing a flat 60 percent tariff on all Chinese imports, according to three people familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity to relay private conversations. All these options would lead to enormous disruptions to the U.S. and global economies that would far surpass the impact of the trade wars of Trump’s first term"

Jurors also awarded a combined $18.3 million in compensatory damages."

Trump from its primary election ballot after its top election official ruled that the former president’s efforts to remain in power after the 2020 election rendered him ineligible to hold office again."

A handful of citizens had challenged his eligibility by claiming that he had incited an insurrection and was thus barred from seeking the presidency again under the 14th Amendment of the Constitution."

Trump Says He Didn’t Know His Immigration Rhetoric Echoes Hitler
"Facing criticism for repeatedly harnessing rhetoric once used by Adolf Hitler to argue that immigrants entering the U.S. illegally are “poisoning the blood of our country,” Trump insisted he had no idea that one of the world’s most reviled and infamous figures once used similar words. The Nazi dictator spoke of impure Jewish blood “poisoning” Aryan German blood to dehumanize Jews and justify the systemic murder of millions during the Holocaust. “I never knew that Hitler said it,” Trump told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt on Friday, volunteering once again that he never read Hitler’s biographical manifesto, “Mein Kampf.”"

The landmark decision from the divided Colorado Supreme Court that Trump cannot hold public office under the Civil War-era provision is unprecedented, and it marks the first time a court has found him to be ineligible to return to the White House due to his conduct surrounding the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Speaking in the early-voting state of New Hampshire, Trump, drew on words similar to Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” as the former U.S. president berated Biden’s team over the flow of migrants. “All over the world they’re pouring into our country,” Trump said."

Trump Calls Political Enemies ‘Vermin,’ Echoing Dictators Hitler, Mussolini
"Former president Donald Trump denigrated his domestic opponents and critics during a Veterans Day speech Saturday, calling those on the other side of the aisle “vermin” and suggesting that they pose a greater threat to the United States than countries such as Russia, China or North Korea. That language is drawing rebuke from historians, who compared it to that of authoritarian leaders. “We pledge to you that we will root out the communists, Marxists, fascists and the radical left thugs that live like vermin within the confines of our country that lie and steal and cheat on elections,” Trump said toward the end of his speech, repeating his false claims that the 2020 election was stolen."
