Hillary Clinton is all but certain to run for president again in 2020, a former adviser says. Mark Penn, the former Clinton administration political adviser and 2008 Hillary Clinton campaign manager, says Ms Clinton has "an unfinished mission to be the first female president" and a "personal grievance" against Donald Trump.

Donald Trump has dismissed an intervention by Taylor Swift in US politics and insisted that the global pop star “didn’t know anything”. The US president spoke out after Swift announced her opposition to Tennessee Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn and endorsed Democrat candidate Phil Bredesen. Trump responded by praising Blackburn, who he said “is doing a very good job in Tennessee”. “I’m sure Taylor Swift has nothing - or doesn’t know anything about her [Blackburn],” he continued, before adding: “Let’s say that I like Taylor’s music about 25% less now, OK?” Swift revealed her allegiances in an Instagram post yesterday. She wrote: “In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions. I feel very differently about that now. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we … [Read more...] about Taylor Swift vs. Donald Trump: who will win?
Chris Woodyard and Kevin McCoy USA TODAY Published 9:10 PM EDT Sep 24, 2018 LOS ANGELES — Stormy Daniels brought her libel case against President Donald Trump to federal court Monday — and the judge indicated he was not impressed. U.S. District Court Judge S. James Otero did not rule from the bench, but told the porn actress’ attorneys that it appeared a tweet by Trump that named her appeared to be speech protected by the First Amendment.

LONDON — Donald Trump loomed large when British MPs debated strikes against Syria. The U.S. president’s influence on British politics was on clear display Monday as U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May set out her defense of Britain’s involvement in the American-led operation this weekend. Throughout a three-hour debate in the House of Commons, May was repeatedly forced to deny she had been dragged to war on the “whim” of her American ally.
