Donald John Trump, Sr. (born June 14, 1946) is the 45th US president. Before the 2016 election, he is an American business magnate, investor, television personality and author. He is the chairman and president of The Trump Organization and the founder of Trump Entertainment Resorts. Trump's extravagant lifestyle, outspoken manner, and role on the NBC reality show The Apprentice have made him a well-known celebrity who was No. 17 on the 2011 Forbes Celebrity 100 list.

Considered one of best known real estate entrepreneurs in the United States, Trump is the son of Fred Trump, a wealthy New York City real-estate developer. He worked for his father's firm, Elizabeth Trump & Son, while attending the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and in 1968 officially joined the company. He was given control of the company in 1971 and renamed it The Trump Organization.

In 2010, Trump expressed an interest in becoming a candidate for President of the United States in the 2012 election, though in May 2011, he announced he would not be a candidate. Trump was a featured speaker at the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). In 2013, Trump spent over $1 million to research a possible run for president of the United States in 2016.

Increased tourism to the island diverted basic foods to the burgeoning tourism industry that allowed for greater profits, whereas Cuban citizens were reliant on a government rationing system.

This created an unfair system where the government could make profits on the goods, at the expense of its own people - surprise, surprise.

"The US had good reason to place an embargo on Cuba, so as to prevent propping up a Communist regime that oppresses its own people. A great time to visit Cuba is when the Castro regime is no more, and free-markets and the civil society can flourish."

President Trump’s Twitter feed was unusually sober this morning, and rightly so: a lone gunman had engaged in an act of politically motivated violence by shooting at Republican lawmakers just hours earlier. Senior congressman Steve Scalise, who had been enjoying a baseball practice ahead of a charity game against Democrats, was left critically injured. Two policemen were also hurt, as was a congressional staffer and a lobbyist. 

In the wake of the outrage, the President had this to say: “Just left hospital. Rep. Steve Scalise, one of the truly great people, is in very tough shape – but he is a real fighter. Pray for Steve!”

There was no fulminating against left-wing zealots, even though the perpetrator’s social media made it clear where his sympathies lay, and he had volunteered for Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign. 

There were no promises to shock and awe the supporters of his political opponents who might be tempted into copycat incidents. 

Just prayers for the victim.

President Trump has saved taxpayers more than $86 billion in regulatory costs during his first three months in the White House, according to a new study from a conservative group.

The American Action Forum (AAF) points to several Obama-era regulations that Trump has either rolled back on his own or with the help of Republican lawmakers using the Congressional Review Act (CRA).

This includes the Education Department’s school accountability standards, the Environmental Protection Agency’s waters of the United States rule and the so-called “blacklisting” rule for government contractors.

The Trump administration announced Thursday that it would eliminate dozens of paperwork requirements for federal agencies, including an obscure rule that requires them to continue providing updates on their preparedness for a bug that afflicted some computers at the turn of the century. As another example, the Pentagon will be freed from a requirement that it file a report every time a small business vendor is paid, a task that consumed some 1,200 man-hours every year.

“We’re looking for stuff everyone agrees is a complete waste of time,” Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told reporters at the White House. He likened the move to the government “cleaning out our closets.”

Deregulation is a major ambition of President Donald Trump’s agenda; as one example, he has signed more laws rolling back his predecessor’s regulations than the combined total of the three previous presidents since the process was established by the 1999 Congressional Review Act.

The Trump administration announced the elimination of dozens of paperwork requirements for federal agencies, including, get this, a rule requiring them to continue providing updates on their preparedness for the Y2K bug, a glitch that threatened computers when the year switched from 1999 to 2000... seventeen years ago.

Deregulation is quickly becoming a central focus of President Trump’s agenda; he has already rolled back more regulations than the last three presidents combined using the 1999 Congressional Review Act. One study calculated that President Trump cut $86 billion in regulatory costs during his first 3 months in the White House.

“Many agencies have forgotten how to deregulate,” Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told reporters at the White House. “It’s been so long since somebody asked them to look backwards.”

This Saturday marks Donald Trump's 100th day as President of the United States, but for some Americans, his tenure feels much longer. Trump's first 100 days have been marked by dozens of executive actions, heated protest marches and even a Senate investigation into election tampering.

For many LGBTQ Americans, the early days of Trump's Republican administration have been fear-inducing. A series of Cabinet appointments have been roundly criticized by LGBTQ advocacy groups. An early draft of a reported executive order legalizing broad discrimination against LGBTQ people threw the community into a panic. The dismantling of Obama-era protections through executive orders came with the simple stroke of a pen.

One by one, they praised President Trump, taking turns complimenting his integrity, his message, his strength, his policies. Their leader sat smiling, nodding his approval.

“The greatest privilege of my life is to serve as vice president to the president who’s keeping his word to the American people,” Mike Pence said, starting things off.

“I am privileged to be here — deeply honored — and I want to thank you for your commitment to the American workers,” said Alexander Acosta, the secretary of labor.

Sonny Perdue, the agriculture secretary, had just returned from Mississippi and had a message to deliver. “They love you there,” he offered, grinning across the antique table at Mr. Trump.

Another US appeals court stomped on President Donald Trump's revised travel ban, saying the administration violated federal immigration law and failed to provide a valid reason for keeping people from six mostly Muslim nations from coming.

The decision by a unanimous  three-judge panel of the San Francisco-based 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals helps keep the travel ban blocked and deals Trump a second big legal defeat on the policy in less than three weeks.

The administration has appealed another ruling against the ban to the Supreme Court, which is likely to consider the cases in tandem. The White House said it is confident the high court will uphold Trump's executive order.

The 4th US Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia last month cited the president's campaign statements calling for a "total and complete shutdown" on Muslims entering the US as evidence the 90-day ban was unconstitutionally "steeped in animus and directed at a single religious group", rather than necessary for national security.

A superior telling you that he "hopes" you could do X, after conveniently asking all other superiors/witnesses to exit the room, regarding an investigation into said superior's campaign staff, is a not so subtle hint - with a wink and a nod - that he WANTS you to do X. That's implicit in the very nature of the employer/employee relationship. When a boss says "I hope you can get this one done by Thursday," he's not saying, "aww gee shucks, it sure would be mighty fine of you to get these done by Thursday if you so desired, but if you get them done much later, that's okay too." He's saying, "get it done by Thursday because I'm telling you to get it done by Thursday, or else you will have failed me." That obviously comes with clear, although implied, career ramifications. Why is anyone on the right pretending this interpretation is bogus? After all, Comey WAS fired soon after publicly telling Congress that there was still an ongoing FBI investigation into Trump's former campaign staff. That's quite clear. Trump says "I hope you can end X." Comey says "X is still ongoing." Trump fires Comey. Why are we playing dumb on this one? If Clinton had done something similar, we would all be authoring dozens of posts slamming her for it.

While I don't buy into the level of hype championed by the left, and while I'm well aware that the anti-Trump narrative has evolved from Russia having had an effect on our election which supposedly delegitimizes Trump's Presidency, to the implication that there was direct collusion between Trump and Russia, with the narrative later devolving into a mere suggestion that he obstructed justice, and most recently, the less implicating concept that he may have legally avoided obstruction but never-the-less acted unethically by indirectly and implicitly pressuring his subordinate to drop an investigation, none of these narratives are good things. Even if the first 3 are false, which I believe is likely the case, the 4th one is still unethical.

We shouldn't be okay with it just because there's an "R" next to his name. We shouldn't dismiss it just because many liberals have wrongly promulgated the first 3 narratives, or because Comey implicated himself by admitting to leaks after his firing. Just because the mainstream media is dishonest and blinded with bias doesn't mean we should be too.

I, for one, am willing to believe that Trump acted unethically. More people on the right should be willing to say that.

President Trump held a joint news conference with the President of Romania, and fielded questions from the press. He made several notable statements.

• The president said he felt vindicated by the Comey testimony. "No collusion, no obstruction, he's a leaker," he said.

• He'd be willing to testify under oath to special counsel Robert Mueller about his meetings with James Comey.

• He said he'd be letting people know very soon whether audio tapes of his conversations exist, but hinted that "you [the media] will be disappointed in the answer".

• The president said the U.S. is committed to NATO's Article 5.

• And he called out Qatar on its financing of terror.
