Democrats expect Trump to run a reelection campaign that stokes cultural divides and plays up controversies like the kneeling protests against police brutality led by black NFL players. “To the extent that Trump sees Warren as a candidate he’d like to run against ,” added Fallon, “it’s probably

Trump is serving notice that most every time one of these potential 2020 Democrats tries one of these stunts, he'll happily stunt right back. This is one of the more intriguing possibilities — and one that appears to suddenly be real. Holder said recently when asked about running for president, “We'll see.”

Hours after Massachusetts Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren kicked off her 2020 campaign, President Trump tweeted he would see her on the “trail,” twisting the knife deeper into a potent political wound.

Trump is relishing a match-up with Warren because he views her as damaged beyond repair. On that point, he might have found a rare piece of common ground with his liberal opposition. In the aftermath of the recent scandal around Warren, a column in her hometown Boston Globe ­­– which has always treated the Cambridge Democrat with kid gloves – declared: “With latest revelation, Elizabeth Warren can’t beat Donald Trump.”

The Latest: Recount in Kentucky House race ends in tie

The Latest: Recount in Kentucky House race ends in tie A recount in a contested Kentucky state House race where a Democrat was elected by a one-vote margin has ended in a tie. Democrat Jim Glenn defeated Republican state Rep. DJ Johnson on Election Day by one vote. But the Republican-controlled state legislature ordered a recount at Johnson's request. Saturday, the Daviess County Board of Elections recounted the more than 12,000 ballots by hand. A review of ballots cast on Election Day showed Glenn leading Johnson by two votes. But the board decided to count five of 17 rejected absentee ballots.

While many Democrats invoke Trump at every opportunity, Lamb is one of the few who isn’t bashing him. If Lamb succeeds or even comes close on March 13 His grandfather was once the Democratic majority leader of the state senate; his uncle is the current controller of the city of Pittsburgh.

The president is partly responsible for Warren’s campaign being on life support. By using his bully pulpit to introduce a mass audience to the Native American controversy that has followed Warren since 2012, Trump goaded Warren into releasing the results of her DNA test last fall.

But at its core, much like Hillary Clinton’s email server, the fiasco is a problem of Warren’s own making. It’s a result of her being deceitful about questions about honesty and integrity. It’s never really been about ancestry – it’s always been about character.

From high cheekbones to family lore, Warren has trotted out a range of excuses to explain her decision to self-identify as a minority. But she has never addressed why her ethnicity changed – or whether it benefited her professional career.

Third Democrat says he will skip Trump's State of the Union

Third Democrat says he will skip Trump's State of the Union Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) says he will again boycott the State of the Union address this year. "I will not attend the State of the Union once again this year. I'll come to the House Chamber for the State of the Union the next time I can hear from a president who will tell the truth about the State of the Union," Cohen, who has previously called for President Trump's impeachment, said in a statement to The Hill. Cohen, who also boycotted 2018's State of the Union, is at least the third Democrat who will skip Trump's address to Congress Tuesday. Georgia Democratic Reps.

Like many people, James Comey, the former F.B.I. director, has been thinking about the best way for the Presidency of Donald Trump to end. One Republican who has been openly considering a run against Trump is John Kasich, the outgoing governor of Ohio, who was the last candidate to drop

Most Americans are being left behind in this economy. Worse than being left behind, they’re getting kicked in “I think President Obama, like many others in both parties, talks about a set of big national statistics That is the place the Democrats should have started if they really wanted to stop Trump .

Last week’s bombshell revelation came from the Washington Post, which found conclusive evidence that Warren had called herself an American Indian. The smoking gun came in Warren’s own handwriting on her application to join the Texas bar in the 1980s.

The revelation shed more light on Warren’s bizarre decision last week to proactively apologize to a leader of the Cherokee Nation. Her best efforts to get ahead of bad news did no good.

Warren was soon back in all-out apology mode. Give her credit for one thing: Warren may be lagging in the polls, but she’s the undisputed leader of the Democratic apology tour. Ironically, during her first campaign for public office in 2012, Warren was demanding apologies from her opponent, then-Sen. Scott Brown (on whose campaign I served as communications director) when he raised similar questions. Now, the issue is the same, but the apologies are coming from the other side.

US Rep. Neal building case to subpoena Trump tax returns

US Rep. Neal building case to subpoena Trump tax returns U.S. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal is moving ahead with plans to subpoena President Donald Trump's tax returns. A spokesman for Neal said in an email Monday that the Massachusetts Democrat is in the process of consulting with lawyers from the U.S. House and the Joint Committee on Taxation "to determine the appropriate legal steps to go forward with this unprecedented request." Trump broke with precedent when he refused to release his taxes. He said he was being audited.

One week after Democrats ' historic 2018 midterm elections success, Democrats are already starting to jockey for position to run against President Donald Trump in the The Democratic Party is supposed to be the party that fights for the working class and that ’s exactly what I do. I will stand with unions

I don’t think Tricky Trump would like running against someone like Avenatti though. Michael Avenatti isn’t necessarily ‘nice’. He would give Trump a run for That being said, I hold out little hope that the opposition party will break stride as they continue to move ever farther to the left - thus eliminating any

Warren’s presidential exploratory committee endured a rocky first month. The rollout of her only significant policy proposal, a wealth tax, didn’t go off without a glitch. First, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, hardly a right-wing demagogue, dismissed the scheme as “probably unconstitutional.” Then phenom freshman Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY,  stole headlines with her own 70 percent tax proposal.

Since her New Year’s Eve announcement, at least seven viable contenders – including four fellow Democratic senators – have joined the field with dozens more potential heavyweights not far behind. One of her colleagues, Senator Kamala Harris, D-Calif, has eclipsed Warren not just in media coverage but also fundraising dollars. Harris raised $1.5 million dollars in her first 24 hours as a candidate, a haul nearly four times larger than Warren’s $299,000.

Which brings us back to the other fundamental problem of Warren’s candidacy. Hardly 24 hours after announcing, Warren’s news cycle was hijacked by another liberal Democratic senator, Minnesota’s Amy Klobuchar. By Monday, as a fresh news week begins, the political world has already moved on, and Warren feels a lot like yesterday’s news. Meanwhile, there are still dozens of other Democratic luminaries – including former vice president Joe Biden and last time’s runner-up, Bernie Sanders – moving closer to campaigns of their own.

Even if Warren could do what Hillary Clinton couldn’t and put her character questions to rest, the damage is done. That bell can’t be unrung. Unlike 2016, liberal voters drawn to Warren’s message have other options to choose from. If you think Warren’s attacks on free enterprise or her wealth distribution schemes are what this country needs, there’s a host of other candidates to choose from without Warren’s scar tissue.

In a press conference with reporters before her announcement, Warren was asked if she was considering dropping out. She avoided the question, but the political consequences of her past decisions have caught up to her and won’t be ignored – by the media, her opponents or voters.
