Predictions about donald trump presidency
Maureen Groppe and Ledyard King and Eliza Collins and Michael Collins USA TODAY Published 8:15 PM EDT Mar 25, 2019 WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump scored a huge political victory after special counsel Robert Mueller absolved him of conspiring with Russia to swing the 2016 election. The big question is whether the president can use the special counsel's finding to boost his re-election prospects. Trump is already harvesting early fruits of his victory. The outcome of the nearly two-year investigation removes a cloud hanging over his 2020 race and frees up time for him to focus on his policy agenda.

Congressional Democrats have to rethink how hard to go after Trump in their own investigations. “My advice to the president for whatever it’s worth is you’re probably stronger today than you’ve been anytime in your presidency," Sen.

(CNN)For President Donald Trump, a bad defeat is simply a spark for a future fight. The President reacted with characteristic defiance to Congress' repudiation of the national emergency declared in the cause of funding his border wall.

John Fritze USA TODAY Published 6:10 PM EST Jan 23, 2019 WASHINGTON – A top White House economic adviser said Wednesday that a prolonged shutdown of the federal government could bring the U.S. economy to a standstill. “If it extended for the whole quarter,” White House Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Kevin Hassett told CNN, “then you could end up with a number very close to zero in the first quarter.” The partial shutdown of the federal government, now in its 33rd day, has left some 800,000 federal employees without pay. It has cost the economy about $1.2 billion a week, according to an estimate earlier this month by S&P Global Ratings. President Donald Trump frequently touts U.S. economic growth as a central accomplishment of his administration. “The United States has a great economic story to tell,” the president posted on Twitter on Tuesday. “Number one in the World, by far!” Gross domestic product increased 3.4 … [Read more...] about Donald Trump adviser Kevin Hassett warns shutdown could hurt economy
