Trump jumps into a divisive battle over the Republican Party — with a threat to start a ‘MAGA Party’

ADPALM BEACH, Fla. — Former president Donald Trump threw himself back into politics this weekend by publicly endorsing a devoted and divisive acolyte in Arizona who has embraced his false election conspiracy theories and entertained the creation of a new “MAGA Party.”In a recorded phone call, he offered his “complete and total endorsement” for another term for Arizona state party chairwoman Kelli Ward, a lightning rod who has sparred with the state’s Republican governor, been condemned by the business community and overseen a recent flight in party registrations.

Trump is isolated and angry at aides for failing to defend him as he is impeached again

ADWhen Donald Trump on Wednesday became the first president ever impeached twice, he did so as a leader increasingly isolated, sullen and vengeful.With less than seven days remaining in his presidency, Trump’s inner circle is shrinking, offices in his White House are emptying, and the president is lashing out at some of those who remain. He is angry that his allies have not mounted a more forceful defense of his incitement of the mob that stormed the Capitol last week, advisers and associates said.Though Trump has been , his relationship with lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani, one of his most...

At party retreat far from D.C. turmoil, Republicans still sing praises of Trump

ADAMELIA ISLAND, Fla. — Winds of change did not blow through a luxury seaside resort here as top Republicans huddled Friday to chart their party's future.After disappointing elections that cost the GOP the White House and control of the U.S. Senate — and after a mob incited by President Trump to protest his election left five dead and his lame-duck administration in shambles — there was little appetite for a course correction, or for taking on the president.Ronna McDaniel, the chairwoman Trump installed four years ago as the titular head of the GOP, was reelected unanimously without a...

Analysis: Notoriously noisy president goes (relatively) quiet in wake of election defeat

Analysis: Notoriously noisy president goes (relatively) quiet in wake of election defeat

WASHINGTON - The president who likes to put on a show is mostly offstage these days.Since President Donald Trump was declared the election's loser this month, gone are blustery speeches and stemwinder White House news conferences about the coronavirus, which never disappeared like he promised - or any other topic for that matter. Gone are lengthy call-in sessions with favored Fox anchors that often stretched so long that the hosts had to push to conclude the calls.Gone, too, are regular White House jousting matches with the press, impromptu Oval Office appearances with random guests or any...

Trump seemed to defy the laws of science and disease. Then, the coronavirus caught up with him.

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump contracted the novel coronavirus after months in which he and people around him - his aides, his children, even his golf-club members - avoided taking basic steps to prevent the virus's spread, like wearing masks and avoiding large indoor crowds.Mask-wearing had become rare among Trump's staff and the Secret Service agents and military service crew aboard Air Force One - even after national security adviser Robert O'Brien tested positive in July.On the campaign trail, Trump's sons Donald Jr. and Eric have spoken to packed audiences in indoor venues.

The scramble for the rapid coronavirus tests everybody wants

The scramble for the rapid coronavirus tests everybody wants

As Abbott Laboratories began shipping its new rapid-response tests across the country Wednesday, a new flash point emerged in the nation’s handling of the pandemic: where to deploy the covid-19 diagnostics that could be one of the most effective tools in combating the outbreak. Some White House officials want to ship many of the tests, which were approved Friday and can deliver results in five to 13 minutes, to areas where there are fewer cases, such as rural states and parts of the South. But officials in hard-hit areas and some public health experts favor directing them to the outbreak’s...

Trump weighs restarting economy despite warnings from U.S. public health officials

President Trump on Monday said he is considering scaling back steps to constrain the spread of the coronavirus in the next week or two because of concerns that the impact on the economy has become too severe. But loosening restrictions on social distancing and similar measures soon probably would require him to override the internal warnings of senior U.S. health officials, including Anthony S. Fauci, who have said that the United States has not yet felt the worst of the pandemic, according to several people with knowledge of the internal deliberations. Trump said at a news conference...

Giuliani pursued shadow Ukraine agenda as key foreign policy officials were sidelined

President Trump’s attempt to pressure the leader of Ukraine followed a months-long fight inside the administration that sidelined national security officials and empowered political loyalists — including the president’s personal lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani — to exploit the U.S. relationship with Kiev, current and former U.S. officials said. The sequence, which began early this year, involved the abrupt removal of the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, the circumvention of senior officials on the National Security Council, and the suspension of hundreds of millions of dollars of aid administered...

Trump attacks McCain again, saying he didn’t get a ‘thank you’ for approving late senator’s funeral

President Trump on Wednesday escalated his unrelenting attacks on the late senator from Arizona and former GOP presidential nominee John McCain, who even in death has remained one of Trump’s top targets for abuse as fellow Republicans have repeatedly begged him to stop. In a five-minute diatribe during an appearance at a General Dynamics tank factory in Lima, Ohio, Trump argued that McCain, a lifelong Pentagon booster and former prisoner of war in Vietnam, “didn’t get the job done” for veterans while also grousing that he did not receive proper gratitude for McCain’s funeral last September....
