    Apple's primary assembly partner, Foxconn, will soon invest in expanding its U.S. operations, the latter company said on Wednesday, apparently following in the steps of a similar SoftBank announcement. "While the scope of the potential investment has not been determined, we will announce the details of any plans following the completion of direct discussions between our leadership and the relevant U.S. officials," Foxconn explained in a statement to Bloomberg. "Those plans would be made based on mutually-agreed terms." Although Foxconn didn't provide specifics, a document held up by SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son after meeting with U.S. President-Elect Donald Trump allegedly...

    At the risk of "offending" the millions of people who supported and fought for him, Donald Trump should drop Mitt Romney from consideration for Secretary of State, best-selling author and radio host Wayne Allyn Root wrote for Townhall. He added, there are two darkhorse names the President-elect should consider for his administration: Joe Lieberman and Ted Cruz. Root, an early supporter of Trump's, makes the case for Cruz for the Supreme Court vacancy, and offers up 5 reasons why Lieberman would be a solid choice for Secretary of State: •Expand the GOP tent looking ahead to 2020. •Expand the tent...

    Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) slammed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Saturday for his praise of former Cuban leader Fidel Castro. Trudeau caught flak on social media after expressing "deep sorrow" for Castro, whom he called a "remarkable leader." Cruz and Rubio, who are of Cuban descent, released their own statements ripping the deceased leader. “Is this a real statement or a parody? Because if this is a real statement from the PM of Canada it is shameful & embarrassing,” Rubio tweeted, linking to Trudeau's statement on Castro's death. “Disgraceful," Cruz tweeted of Trudeau's remarks.

    On the list of surprising visitors calling on president-elect Donald Trump last week, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas ranks right up there with alleged Secretary of State candidate Mitt Romney. While Romney who called Trump a “phony” and talked openly about derailing his candidacy during the campaign had an actual job attached to the meeting with his former nemesis on Saturday, Cruz’s visit was billed as more of a drop-by. It’s true that after the name-calling between Cruz and Trump (who tagged him “Lyin’ Ted’) during the primary campaign; after Trump’s derogatory comments about Cruz’s wife; after Trump’s suggestion that...

    Incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said he wants President-elect Trump to select a "mainstream" candidate to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. Asked by NBC on Sunday whether he was comfortable filibustering any Trump nominee for the court, Schumer dodged answering the question directly. "I hope that President Trump picks a mainstream candidate," Schumer said. "A mainstream candidate is somebody you may not agree with on every issue, but basically believes in precedent." NBC's Chuck Todd interrupted Schumer and asked, "What does that mean? Can he nominate somebody in your mind...

A Ted Cruz aide confirmed the talk to ABC News, and a source gave similar intel to CNN. BuzzFeed News reported that the Cruz camp said there's "nothing to share right now." Trump earned a hard-fought endorsement from Cruz about two weeks ago. The Texas senator said the Supreme Court and other policy issues superseded his own personal disagreements with Trump. In the wake of leaked audio of Trump's lewd comments about women, Cruz tweeted Friday that the remarks were "disturbing and inappropriate."

    He never explicitly said "vote for Donald Trump," but Texas Sen. Ted Cruz did sit in front of a wall of Trump campaign posters as he urged voters to come out to "support freedom, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights." A video, originally shot Wednesday by the Dallas Morning News, shows a glistening Cruz leaving a voicemail while at a Republican phone bank in Texas. It's all of 28 seconds, but long enough to leave its mark.

    President Obama’s top official responsible for vetting refugees testified before the Senate Wednesday that it’s possible for people from Syria and other terrorist-infested countries to have their refugee applications approved based simply on personal interviews with a “highly trained” immigration officer.

He tried to reassure the committee by saying the screening process is lengthy and continuously being improved, noting that the United Nations pre-screens the refugees before his...

    Donald Trump wants to know how many Christian conservatives are backing him in Iowa. The Republican presidential nominee asked those attending a Wednesday afternoon rally in Council Bluffs to raise their hands "if you're not a Christian conservative." He noticed "a couple people" raising their hands. He asked the crowd, "Should we keep them in the room?" He answered himself, "Yes, I think so." Many Iowa Republicans are Christian conservatives. The thrice married Trump has faced tough questions of his own about his devotion to Christian values....

    Sen. Ted Cruz said on Tuesday he is willing to help Donald Trump prepare for his next debate with Hillary Clinton. "I am happy to help," Cruz said on Hugh Hewitt's radio show Tuesday morning. "I have conveyed that to them." . . "I think he really went after Hillary, which was a good thing," Cruz told Hewitt. "Anyone who is swooning at Hillary's performance last night, that's a pretty good indication that you're a card-carrying member of the liberal media, especially in the first half hour. I think Donald very much had the upper hand over Hillary. Hillary was...
