    President Trump said in an interview Thursday that he wasn’t surprised Barbara Bush is quoted dissing him in a new book — because he campaigned so harshly against the former first lady’s children. “I have heard that she was nasty to me, but she should be,” he told the Washington Times in an interview. “Look what I did to her sons,” he added. Trump was responding to a question about a new biography of Barbara Bush, published after she died, that reveals the former first lady was extremely critical of him going back to the 1990s. The biography, “The Matriarch:...

    There's nothing like the prospect of an avocado shortage to spark fear in the hearts of toast lovers everywhere. And, if President Donald Trump follows through with his threat to close the border with Mexico, it could affect supplies from there, as one importer predicts. Along with Mexico, U.S. consumers also get avocados from California, Peru and Florida.

    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) issued a barrage of criticism about the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 on Wednesday, which marked the 16th anniversary of the start of one of America's longest-running armed conflicts. In a series of tweets, the Minnesota congresswoman labeled the George W. Bush administration's invasion of Iraq "illegal" and called for those involved in the explanation and lead up to the war to be held accountable. "16 years ago the U.S. illegally invaded Iraq, leaving a trail of destruction and lives lost," Omar tweeted. "4,496 U.S. troops lost their lives. 100,000+ Iraqi civilians [were] killed." "We...

    Jeb Bush calls on Republicans to challenge Trump Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush says Donald Trump should face a Republican primary challenge in 2020. Bush, who ran for president in 2016, told CNN the party “ought to be a given a choice.” “I think someone should run. Just because Republicans ought to be given a choice,” he said. “To have a conversation about what it is to be a conservative I think is important...And our country needs to have competing ideologies that people -- that are dynamic, that focus on the world we’re in and the world we’re moving towards...

    Jeb Bush believes a Republican should challenge President Trump for the nomination in 2020 — slamming the president's "dangerous" policies on trade and other issues. In the latest salvo between the two former rivals, Bush, who ran unsuccessfully for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016, made the comments Saturday during an interview with ex-Obama adviser David Axelrod. Bush, whose father George. H.W. Bush was the 41st president of the United States and his brother, George W. Bush, was the 43rd, reportedly added that Republican voters should be given more of a choice between different ideologies. "And our country needs to...

    President Trump’s former primary rival Jeb Bush called on a Republican candidate to challenge the president in the 2020 GOP nomination because the party “ought to be a given a choice." "I think someone should run. Just because Republicans ought to be given a choice," said Bush in an interview with former Obama adviser David Axelrod, which is set to air Saturday on CNN. Bush, who served as Florida’s governor from 1999-2007, acknowledged a Republican opponent’s chances of beating Trump in 2020 will be an uphill climb because “he has a strong, loyal base.”

    WASHINGTON – Florida Gov. Rick Scott Sunday rejected a plan pitched by President Trump to arm certain teachers with guns as a solution to stop mass shootings. “I disagree with him,” Scott, a Republican, told Fox News Sunday. “I believe you’ve got to focus on the people that are well-trained in law enforcement, that are trained to do this. I want to make sure we have significant law enforcement presence (at schools) on top of hardening the schools with metal detectors and bullet proof glass, better perimeter fencing.” “I want our teachers to teach and our law enforcement officers to...

    After President Donald Trump announced his proposed immigration deal that would offer DACA protections to Democrats in exchange for wall funding, right-wing pundit Ann Coulter ripped the deal and said it would make a wall useless. There are a million things to trade for a wall: A higher federal minimum wage, an infrastructure bill, a solar panel bill,” Coulter tweeted. “Trade a wall for AMNESTY, and there’s no purpose to having a wall.” "We voted for Trump and got Jeb!” she wrote on Twitter.

    When President Donald Trump didn’t attend Barbara Bush’s funeral earlier this year, it stoked chatter about a rivalry between the two powerful families who have a history of sniping at each other. The former first lady criticized Trump during the 2016 campaign for saying “terrible things” about women and the military, and was long displeased with Trump’s insults toward her husband and sons. But many of the family’s confidants said Saturday former President George H.W. Bush wished to put that all aside when it came to Trump attending his funeral. “If anybody at anytime knew anything about the 41st president...

    Jeb Bush on Monday joined growing Republicans calls for Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore to step down after Moore allegedly had a sexual encounter with a minor. “This is not a question of innocence or guilt like in a criminal proceeding, this is a question of what’s right and what’s wrong. Acknowledging that you’re dating teenagers when you’re 32 years old as assistant state attorney is wrong. It’s just plain wrong,” the former Republican presidential candidate and Florida governor said during an interview on CNBC. “We need to stand for basic principles, and decency has to be one of...
