How Nixon Would Have Tweeted Watergate


Justin Sherin, PoliticoAs President Donald Trump continues to mouth off about the Russia investigation on Twitter—he recently admitted that he’s the target of an obstruction of justice probe—some have cracked wise on Twitter about what President Richard Nixon’s Twitter account might have looked like during Watergate, had social media existed in the 1970s. “The Jews,” surely—they’d show up a lot. Not to mention Teddy and that poor drowned girl, and…

There Is No Rational Justification for Trump’s Travel Ban


Zack Beauchamp, VoxStarting this Thursday, citizens of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen will be banned from the United States unless they can demonstrate a “bona fide” relationship with American citizens or organizations.

Why Trump Is Earning Latino Support


Steve Cortes, RealClearPoliticsOne of the little-told stories of the 2016 election was Donald Trump’s 28 percent take of the Hispanic vote, besting Mitt Romney’s 2012 showing. We on Team Trump won’t throw parades for winning less than one-third of the Latino vote nationally, but lessened enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton among Hispanics represents a key reason, perhaps the primary reason, she was ultimately uncompetitive in Florida….
