A must read Trump voters along the Ohio River. Hard Times In Trump Country

“Better than Hillary, that’s what everybody was saying, so that’s what we went with. A
lot of my family was just like, put anybody in that office other than that bitch.”

Trump has been working with Russia to be POTUS since 2013 .... Washington Post/Seth Abramson

After trying for many years to expand his business empire into Russia, Abramson asserts, Trump visited Moscow in 2013 to personally meet agents of Russian President Vladmir Putin, using his beauty pageant as cover.

There, Abramson writes, a secret deal was struck: Putin agreed to open up his country’s rich real estate market to Trump, and Trump agreed to campaign for president while promoting pro-Russian policies.

Simple as that. And everything that has happened since — the election hacking, Trump’s improbable win and a special counsel’s investigation into his campaign and administration — follows from that deal, in Abramson’s telling.

Washington Post Today: Trump still says Russia didn't do anything

Nearly a year into his presidency, Trump continues to reject the evidence that Russia
waged an assault on a pillar of American democracy and supported his run for the
White House.

Told that members of his incoming Cabinet had already publicly backed the intelligence report on Russia, Trump shot back, “So what?” Admitting that the Kremlin had hacked Democratic Party emails, he said, was a “trap.”

As Trump addressed journalists on Jan. 11 in the lobby of Trump Tower, he came as close as he ever would to grudging acceptance. “As far as hacking, I think it was Russia,” he said, adding that “we also get hacked by other countries and other people.”

As hedged as those words were, Trump regretted them almost immediately. “It’s not me,” he said to aides afterward. “It wasn’t right.”

"The constant revelations create such a blur that context sometimes is overlooked. Trump and his
operatives have lied repeatedly, denying that they had any contacts with Russians. Now we now
know of at least 19 meetings among 31 interactions."

Omarosa Manigault Newman to resign from Trump administration

Source: NY Daily News

The White House said Wednesday that Omarosa Manigault Newman, a former “The Apprentice” contestant turned political neophyte, is leaving the administration next month.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told The Associated Press that Manigault Newman’s resignation is effective Jan. 20, one year since Trump’s inauguration.

Manigault Newman gained notoriety as a villain on “The Apprentice.”

She joined the administration as director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison, working on outreach to various constituency groups.
