DONALD Trump said "This is the end of my presidency. I'm f***ed" when he was first told about Robert Mueller's investigation, the special counsel's redacted reports says. The US President made the comment to former Attorney General Jeff Sessions when he told him about the probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election. According to Sessions' chief of staff Jody Hunt, the brash New York billionaire said: "Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I'm f***ed." Trump, angry at the attorney general's decision to recuse himself from the investigation, asked Sessions: "How could you let this happen, Jeff?" the reports claims. The outspoken US leader reportedly told Sessions that he'd heard special counsels ruin presidencies and that the probe could take "years and years and I won't be able to do anything."

Brianne Pfannenstiel Des Moines Register Published 8:02 PM EDT Apr 3, 2019 DES MOINES – Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley – a champion of the wind energy tax credit – said President Donald Trump's comments that wind turbines cause cancer were "idiotic" in a call with reporters Wednesday. "I’m told that the White House respects my views on a lot of issues," Grassley said. "(Trump's) comments on wind energy – not only as a president but when he was a candidate – were, first of all, idiotic, and it didn’t show much respect for Chuck Grassley as the grandfather of the wind energy tax credit." Speaking at a Republican fundraiser Tuesday night, Trump discussed wind turbines and energy policy. "If you have a windmill anywhere near your house, congratulations, your house just went down 75% in value," he said. "And they say the noise causes cancer. You tell me that one, OK?"

opinion The Editorial Board USA TODAY Published 6:31 PM EDT Mar 13, 2019 International trade deficits were the hobgoblins that Donald Trump, as a populist candidate in 2016, said he would bring to heel. China, Japan, Mexico and others were “stealing our businesses, stealing our jobs, stealing our money,” Trump told throngs in Poughkeepsie, New York. “We can't continue to allow China to rape our country," he said to crowds in Fort Wayne, Indiana. “We will end our chronic trade deficits,” he vowed before folks in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Trump would achieve this, he said, by getting tough with trade partners and tearing up, or renegotiating, deals such as the North American Free Trade Agreement. Those steps were taken. And last week the Commerce Department reported that America’s trade deficit for goods has been increasing, not decreasing, since Trump became … [Read more...] about Donald Trump said he’d fix trade deficits.

Donald Trump once said black Americans were too stupid to vote for him, the US president’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen has claimed in explosive testimony to Congress. Mr Cohen alleged that Mr Trump once travelled through a struggling Chicago neighbourhood and commented that “only black people could live that way”. He also called his former boss a “racist”, a “conman” and a “cheat” in written evidence submitted to a congressional committee ahead of his hearing which was obtained by Politico. Mr Cohen, an attorney and ‘fixer’ to Mr Trump for a decade before turning on him after becoming the target of a criminal investigation, makes a string of other damning claims in the testimony. He alleges that Mr Trump repeatedly asked how a project to build a Trump Tower in Moscow was going during the 2016 election campaign while telling voters he had no business interests in Russia. Mr Cohen … [Read more...] about Michael Cohen claims that Donald Trump ‘said black people were too stupid to vote for him’
DONALD Trump's State of the Union speech addressed the issue of ISIS and whether or not it has been defeated. But what exactly has he said about it? Here's the lowdown... When will ISIS be defeated in Iraq and Syria? Trump has claimed that ISIS will be “100 per cent” defeated in Iraq and Syria by next week. The US President today predicted that the terror group will have lost its final strongholds within days following "victory over victory". He insisted the US would not relent in fighting the "sick and demented" extremists despite his decision to withdraw US troops from Syria. Trump told representatives of a 79-member, US-led coalition fighting ISIS that the militants held a tiny percentage of the vast territory they once claimed as their "caliphate". "It should be formally announced sometime, probably next week, that we will have 100 per cent of the caliphate," Trump said.
