Everything Donald Trump Has Said About Releasing His Tax Returns

  Everything Donald Trump Has Said About Releasing His Tax Returns Revelations about the president's alleged tax affairs have reawakened a debate over the president's personal fortune.A New York Times investigation found that Trump paid no federal income taxes in 10 of the previous 15 years and just $750 in federal income taxes in the two most recent years of the newspaper's probe—2016 and 2017.

JOE BIDEN: The wrong guy, the wrong night, at the wrong time . DONALD TRUMP : Listen, you agreed with Bernie Sanders and the manifesto. He has Executive Orders that have no power. He hasn't lowered drug costs for anybody. He' s been promising a healthcare plan since he got elected.

Trump ' s enemies got a huge tripwire tripped from two simultaneous FBI raids targeting the PrivatBank stolen money laundering trail in Cleveland & Miami. Joe Hoft is the twin brother of TGP's founder, Jim Hoft. His posts have been retweeted by President Trump and have made the headlines at the

All across our great country, people of all races, ethnicities, and gender identities are working in good faith every day to create our more perfect union, forge connections, appreciate different cultures and perspectives, and ensure that being different doesn't mean being excluded. And in this moment of a renewed national reckoning over systemic racism and racial violence and injustice, it is work that has never been more vital to our civic health and our democratic enterprise's future stability.

The economy, Covid-19 and racial inequality are voters' top concerns ahead of the first Trump-Biden debate

  The economy, Covid-19 and racial inequality are voters' top concerns ahead of the first Trump-Biden debate Voters in swing states want President Trump and Joe Biden to use their first debate to offer clear answers on how they plan to improve the economy, while battling Covid-19 and racial inequality. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Some of these voters, who spoke to CNBC ahead of Tuesday's debate, said the coronavirus has affected their lives and livelihood in a variety of ways, from new health-care guidelines to layoffs. The debate on Tuesday will be the first of three between the two men.

Time and time again, Trump would snipe at Biden, leaving the Democrat laughing and shaking his head. Biden's reply was to talk directly at the camera, asking the viewers if they could believe Trump (polls indicate a majority of Americans disapprove of Trump ' s handling of the pandemic).

President Trump got through the entirety of the first general election debate without telling the American people what he would do in a second term. Even at the debate’ s close, after Mr. Biden delivered a plea to the American people to vote and a reminder that voters alone will decide the election, Mr

That is why it is hard to fathom the rationale behind the Trump administration's executive order demanding that all organizations, from defense contractors to colleges, receiving government contracts submit their diversity training programs for government inspection, whether or not the funds are being used for that purpose. According to the "Executive Order on Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping," all organizations with government contracts must now send the government every handout, PowerPoint, speaking notes, readings, marketing and any other document related to the program so that they can be scoured for the presence of a set of forbidden ideas.

Wrong language? Biden and Trump will meet at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland and due to the coronavirus pandemic, the in-person audience will be limited and socially distanced. Read more: US election: Trump bets on law-and- order campaign, again. What are the debate topics?

The New York Times says Trump ’ s “proceeds from fame continued to tumble, falling below million in 2017 and to .9 million in 2018.” Could it be that a deeper look at the documents would reveal that they discredit more of the New York Times ’ longstanding claims against Trump than are even

In creating its list of nine forbidden ideas, the administration has cherry-picked certain challenging insights, restated them in inflammatory language, and overstated the intentionality and extent of reasonable efforts to address racial bias in the workplace. Their language, on the face of it, seems reasonable enough. Still, in fact, they are stated just vaguely enough to potentially encompass a broad array of key points that racial bias training exists to fix.

Government offices have been instructed to seek information from federal contractors about their training programs in the next 30 days. Further, organizations are to comply not only with the terms of this executive order, but "such other sanctions may be imposed and remedies invoked as provided by any rules, regulations, or orders... pursuant to the order."

‘All the red flags’: Political analysts warn of U.S. election violence in November

  ‘All the red flags’: Political analysts warn of U.S. election violence in November With President Donald Trump refusing to commit to a peaceful transition of power in the event that he loses the upcoming election and violent clashes already unfolding in a number of states, political analysts are uniquely fearful as November approaches. Asked last week to commit to conceding should the November 3 election go in favor of Democratic nominee Joe Biden, Trump again cited unfounded claims about mail-in ballots leading to widespread voter fraud in justifying his reluctance.

As Trump and Biden attempted to make their points on the debate stage in Cleveland, NBC News fact-checked their claims in real time . But the pandemic caused enormous losses, and there are now more than 200,000 fewer manufacturing jobs than there were at the start of Trump ’ s administration.

Non-compliance with this order and the "blank check" of all future regulations to be imposed by the administration on this topic results in the cancellation of government contracts and loss of eligibility for future contracts, not a small matter to corporations, small businesses, and all those organizations keeping people employed through these challenging times.

Surely true conservatives must be concerned when the government demands a nationwide turning over training documents to hunt for ideas with which it disagrees.

Nor is it made clear who will determine all this once the documents have been submitted, nor how they will be consistently applied across so many government offices. Will the Department of Education treat these matters in the same way as the Department of Labor? What about the armed forces? One can imagine the lawsuits based on inconsistency alone.

The order even goes so far as to direct the Attorney General to consider whether workplace actions that are found out of compliance "contribute to a hostile work environment and give rise to potential liability under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act." In short, the Civil Rights Act can be used to suppress training on behalf of racial sensitivity.

Trump, 10 others test positive for COVID: A running list of everyone being tested and their results

  Trump, 10 others test positive for COVID: A running list of everyone being tested and their results Sen. Mike Lee and others tested positive for COVID-19. Barron, Ivanka and Jared tested negative for coronavirus.Trump announced his positive test early Friday morning, sending Washington and the rest of the country into fresh turmoil just a month before the presidential election. Hours earlier, the president said Hope Hicks, one of his closest advisers with whom he had recently traveled, has been infected and he and the first lady have started to quarantine.

It’ s wrong .” At the same time , Mr. Trump announced his intention to install a handful of new inspectors general throughout the administration, including naming a White House Yet Mr. Trump has made clear that he considers any efforts to hold him accountable to be, by definition, illegitimate.

Donald Trump said he was very happy about a US appeals court decision directing a federal judge to drop a criminal case against the president' s former national security adviser Michael Flynn for lying to the FBI.

As this USA Today story made clear, there are widespread fears in the corporate world that this order will severely harm efforts to increase workplace equality and address race and gender disparities. I agree and fear that the impact will reverberate across our entire society - at just the wrong moment.

Ironic coming from an administration that claims to be against over-regulation and a guardian of free speech and has criticized the previous White House for improperly governing by executive branch fiat.

The election outcome may determine whether it is worth challenging this new executive order, especially because it does not go into effect for 60 days. Indeed, the real aim of the order may well be to generate partisan heat. But, for the sake of free speech unencumbered by government oversight and all of our efforts to create a more inclusive and welcoming society, this order warrants our hard questions and continued scrutiny.

Racism is America's original sin and continues to complicate all our attempts to create a truly human civil society. As the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities president, I see every day how our member colleges and universities work hard for the greater good. I see how they strive to cultivate a deep sense of human dignity and to form engaged citizens who fight every form of injustice and effect positive change, emulating Jesus's own heart for those on the margins.

I fear that the misuse of the federal government's power through this executive order will interfere with that mission and harm our entire country.
