In an interview with David Axelrod released yesterday, December 26th, President Obama claimed that he would have defeated Donald Trump had he been allowed to run for a third term. "I'm confident that if I — if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could've mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it," Mr. Obama said.
President-elect responded on Twitter with a firm denial that Obama could have beaten him.
It's an interesting debate: President Obama won the popular vote in both the 2008 and 2012 election, while Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016 but did not defeat Hillary Clinton in the popular vote.
Obama stressed his admiration for Clinton and said she had been the victim of unfair attacks. But, as he has in other exit interviews, he insisted that her defeat was not a rejection of the eight years of his presidency. To the contrary, he argued that he had put together a winning coalition that stretched across the country but that the Democratic Party and the Clinton campaign had failed to follow through on it.

Michael Cohen, who served as the president's lawyer and fixer for a decade, claimed he witnessed Mr Trump making derogatory comments about black people throughout the 2016 election campaign.
Cohen has publicly split from Mr Trump since he was charged with campaign finance violations and tax fraud earlier this year. He pleaded guilty to several charges this summer, claiming he violated election laws at the direction of Mr Trump, to pay a porn star in a hush money agreement.

President Donald Trump, 72, was caught on camera holding an umbrella over his own head, while his wife, 48, stood nearby, uncovered, in the rain. The moment took place as the Trumps exited the White House to visit hurricane-torn Florida and Georgia.
After his wife joined him under the umbrella he was carrying, the president darted off to talk to a group of reporters about his wife’s ABC News interview and his 60 Minutes interview, leaving his wife out in the rain. “She did a great job on television the other night,” Trump told reporters in footage captured by ABC News. “And I didn’t do so bad either. But she did a great job on television.”

It all stemmed from a Kardashian quote attributed to an upcoming Wonderland magazine cover story. The quote doesn’t appear in the online version of the magazine, but BuzzFeed reports that it did appear in an advance version sent to certain outlets, including to BuzzFeed UK.
The reported quote read: “At first I thought, ‘Oh my god, I’m so Hillary (Clinton),’ but I had a long political call with Caitlyn (Jenner) last night about why she’s voting Trump. I’m on the fence.”
Headlines declared “Kim Kardashian Is Suddenly (And Disappointingly) Considering Voting For Donald Trump;” “Caitlyn Jenner Convinces Kim Kardashian to Consider Trump” and “Hillary Clinton Supporter Kim Kardashian Might Vote for Donald Trump.”
“I believe Hillary will best represent our country and is the most qualified for the job,” wrote Kardashian. “This year, I’m not just voting for myself, but also for my children, and I took that into careful consideration when I made my decision.”

There are also a number of photos posted on the account that make no reference to Trump at all, but viewers can glean the subjects’ political preferences based on the accompanying hashtags: #babe4trump #babes4trump #babefortrump #babesfortrump #trump #trump2016 #trumpgirls #donaldtrump #bootypics #bootybootybooty.
When asked how posting pictures of almost-naked women helps to elevate female voices, the guys said that simply drawing attention to their account, which has over 3,000 followers and only posts photos that were submitted to them, does just that.
Donald Trump has a long and storied history of equating a woman’s value with her looks. Most recently, the GOP frontrunner retweeted an image of his wife Melania juxtaposed with an unflattering shot of Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi — presumably to prove that Melania is hotter. One post on Babes For Trump seems to echo that meme, showing a split-screen image of a female Bernie Sanders supporter and the butts of two Trump supporters. The caption charmingly reads, “You decide. We know who we’re going with.”

Funk Flex and Jay-Z's feud extends years, but the DJ added a new chapter by consigning a report accusing the Hip Hop mogul of cutting a deal with former President Donald Trump in exchange for Roc Nation CEO Desiree Perez's pardon.
Funk Flex announced on Instagram that he has "a story to tell" in relation to the report. He posted a photo of a tabloid story covering Perez being accused of wearing wiretaps for the feds after her arrest.

The 75-year-old "godfather of funk" recalled the impact P-Funk made on the world but was sure to avoid pivoting from a time capsule, as he spoke in the present, saying, "We're here. We ain't going nowhere. We are a movement," in spite of the group's half a century long history in the music business. It is an assertion that Parliament fans can expound upon, beyond the fact that the band continues to perform in its present incarnation. True fans of hip-hop would concur, in having heard samples from Clinton's past woven into some of the genre's most prolific songs, whether they knew what they were listening to at the moment or not.
It is in bringing the party together, regardless of culture or creed that Clinton's music is often cited for, and he touched on how they bore the intention to convey that message with the classic "One Nation," saying, "That's the holy grail of the funk. It's ... our anthem and that binding force." And it is Clinton's absolute faith that the music actually facilitates unity, that prompts him to direct anyone searching for answers right back to the funk, as was the case when the CNN reporter inquired about whether he had any thoughts on Donald Trump's first 100 days in office.
"Ain't no funk in the Trump," said Clinton. "You can't be that against everything and everybody and be funky -- that's hard to do. He needs to go to a good funk concert a few times. He'd probably change his mind about a lot of things. I'm going to send him a copy of 'One Nation Under a Groove' -- maybe that'll help."

Dodson described his time spent with Donald Trump and his son on their National Charlotte clubhouse, saying Donald was "strutting up and down talking to his new members about how they were part of the greatest club in North Carolina." When Dodson asked Trump "What are you using to pay for these courses?" he responded with $100 million.
From there, Dodson got into a golf cart with Eric Trump and asked "Eric, who's funding? I know no banks--- because of the recession, the Great Recession--- have touched a golf course. You know, no one's funding any kind of golf construction. It's dead in the water the last four or five years.
" Eric Trump responded by saying "Well we don't rely on American banks. We have all the funding we need out of Russia." He also went on to say "We've got some guys that really, really love golf, and they're really invested in our programs. We just go there all the time."

Will someone please explain to me how protestors were able to gain entry into Capital Hill? This is like saying any country could come here and take over all power. This shows weakness to America.
Rioters with Donald Trump and soviet flags stormed the U.S. Capitol Building while Congress met to certify electoral. Among that, Donald Trump our President was inciting the invasion of the US Capitol with his own Vice President inside.
President-elect Joe Biden also expressed his belief that had the crowds of men dressed in face paint and protective riot gear storming the Capitol been BLM supporters, the response by law enforcement would have looked differently.

"After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender [sic] in the military would entail. Thank you," he wrote in a series of three tweets.

A US federal judge in California has ordered porn star Stormy Daniels to pay Donald Trump nearly $300,000 for filing a defamation suit against the president that was dismissed.
US District Judge S. James Otero said Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, must pay Trump $293,000 to cover the president's attorney fees and costs plus $1,000 in sanctions for filing the lawsuit.
Trump's attorney Charles Harder hailed the ruling, along with an earlier one dismissing Daniels's defamation case, as a "total victory for the president, and a total defeat for Stormy Daniels in this case."
Clifford has also sued Trump over a non-disclosure agreement. The judge has not dismissed that case.
Daniels's attorney Michael Avenatti said in a tweet after the latest ruling that his client planned to appeal and will likely never have to pay a dime.
"If Stormy has to pay $300k to Trump in the defamation case (which will never hold up on appeal) and Trump has to pay Stormy $1,500,000 in the NDA case (net $1,200,000 to Stormy), how is this a Trump win?"

Even though Cube clearly does not support Trump, he doesn’t seem to be much of a fan of Hillary Clinton either. “She might be the president of the United States,” he said during a Bloomberg Politics interview in April. “And if she becomes the president of the United States, we need to know what she’s thinking. How does she think? How is she gonna handle this? How’s she gonna fix this? She helped create it in a way. How are you gonna fix this?”

According to Buzzfeed, the Trump administration has recruited fourteen federal agencies and the Drug Enforcement Administration to give "data demonstrating the most significant negative trends" about marijuana use and the "threats" it could have on America.
The committee's records reveal that officials are only asking for marijuana to portrayed negatively, despite what data and research says. Ironically, the committee had complaints that the narrative around marijuana is "unfairly biased in favor of the drug."
"The prevailing marijuana narrative in the U.S. is partial, one-sided and inaccurate," a memo from the committee reads.
Another memo read, "Staff believe that if the administration is to turn the tide on increasing marijuana use there is an urgent need to message the facts about the negative impacts of marijuana use, production, and trafficking on national health safety, and security."
Clearly, the Trump administration is having trouble trying to bring back the stigma surrounding marijuana.
"We are asking each agency to provide information on marijuana," White House ONDCP staff member Hayley C. Conklin wrote in an e-mail.
Since the initial report came out, the Trump administration hasn't denied the existence of the committee. Instead, they've said that they wouldn't discuss the way the policies are made for "Trump's agenda."

In the midst of discussing alleged anti-conservative bias in social media, Trump abruptly shifted the topic to entertainment, accusing Hollywood of “racism” without providing context.
Trump is criticizing Hollywood’s terrible history of whitewashing and perpetuation of harmful stereotypes. Considering that Hollywood has recently shown great commitment to diversity and inclusion, the statement seems untimely, at best.

During a speech at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on Friday, Obama said the country is in a “backlash” moment.
While Obama has in the past blasted Trump and his policies, this was the first speech in which he used his successor’s name.
Obama also addressed Trump’s tone-deaf comments last year, when the president claimed that there were “some very fine people on both sides” during the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that saw white supremacists squaring off against anti-racism protesters. Paralegal Heather Heyer, 32, was killed during the protest when a white supremacist struck her with his car.
The former president also applauded the women who have taken a stand in the Me Too movement, and the teens of Parkland, Florida, who are standing up to gun violence and the National Rifle Association. That’s how real change starts, Obama said. But nothing will get done if this generation doesn’t vote, he added.

Raising up the minimum wages makes it harder for small businesses to give out more jobs, and big corporation don't mind paying a fee for leaving to get cheaper wages and more production. As far as Donald Trump loosing previous businesses, you have to loose to gain, you have to crawl somewhere before you walk. Support our rise below.
If the minimum wage increases, small business owners will likely scale back the number of employees and raise prices to cover the extra cost. An increase would stifle small business growth for owners and employment opportunities for job-seekers.

When asked if he thought Kaepernick should get an opportunity to play again in the NFL, Trump said “only if he’s good enough.”
“Colin has always been prepared to compete at the highest level and is in the best shape of his life," a person familiar with Kaepernick's quest to return to the NFL told USA TODAY Sports on Friday. The person was granted anonymity because of the sensitivity of Kaepernick's comeback efforts.
Kaepernick's last NFL appearance was in Week 17 of the 2016 season when he played for the San Francisco 49ers. Shortly after that season, Kaepernick opted out of his contract as he sought a better deal, but he has since remained a free agent.
“Only if he’s good enough,” Trump said outside the White House. “If he was good enough, they’d hire him. Why wouldn’t he play if he was good enough? I think if he’s good enough, I know the owners – I know (Patriots owner Robert) Kraft, I know so many of the owners – if he’s good enough, they’d sign him. ...
“So I’d like to see it. Frankly, I’d love to see Kaepernick come in, if he’s good enough. But I don’t want to see him come in because somebody thinks it’s a good PR move.”
In August 2016, Trump said Kaepernick "maybe ... should find a country that works better for him. In September 2017, Trump said NFL owners should "get that son of a bitch off the field" when any players protest during the national anthem. Trump said in October 2018 that the NFL “should’ve suspended” Kaepernick for his protests of social inequality during the anthem.
In six seasons with the 49ers, Kaepernick, 31, threw for 12,271 yards and 72 touchdowns with 31 interceptions, and also ran for 2,300 more yards and 13 rushing scores.

America is in disarray amidst the current government shutdown due to President Trump’s insistence on building a wall along the United States’ Southern border, but the people who will be impacted the most will be those who receive government assistance.
The proposed border wall has been described as a "death sentence" for the National Butterfly Center. A crew began clearing vegetation in preparation for construction of the wall at the National Butterfly Center in July 2018.
Almost 40 million Americans depend on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP, for food benefits, but the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture said last month that the program is funded through January, but it has only $3 billion in reserves to cover February, which is less than two-thirds of food stamps’ $4.8 billion cost in September.
What will happen at this point hasn’t been confirmed, but if the $3 billion reserve were distributed, that would mean about a $90 decrease for the 19.4 million households that receive an average of $245 a month in food stamps, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.
For the residents of La Lomita, President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall is already here. But most Democrats left those sessions discouraged and convinced that the White House was more interested in arguing that there is a crisis that necessitates a border wall.
The SNAP program, which offers nutrition assistance to over 7 million low-income pregnant women, new mothers and young children is also in jeopardy. The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children or WIC, also has federal funding to last only through January.
