    Just saw on my favorite cable show, Special Report, that President Trump said the “we will be making the decision on evacuation, probably on Sunday”.

    Jeb Bush has emerged a winner from the sale of his townhome in Florida, the state where he served two terms as governor. The politician sold the two-story residence for $1.625 million or $325,000 more than what he paid for it in 2011, records show. The townhouse in the city of Coral Gables southwest of downtown Miami features oak floors, impact windows and high-end finishes across 3,485 square feet. Stone columns frame the entry, leading directly into a living room topped with dual chandeliers.

    Tensions among former Vice President Joe Bidens advisers are rising ahead of the Thursday launch of his 2020 presidential bid, according to a new report, with a last-minute replacement of his announcement video and major worries about his fundraising needs. The New York Times reports Biden will enter the crowded Democratic field with zero campaign dollars and will need to raise at least $100,000 per day until Christmas if he wants to match the amount of cash that rival Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) had in the bank on April 1st. Members of Team Biden are said to be concerned that...

    Barbara Bush so fiercely disliked President Donald Trump that she blamed him for what she called a heart attack and, by the end of her life, she no longer considered herself a Republican. "I'd probably say no today," she told Page in an October 2017 interview on whether she was still a Republican. Those were excerpts, released Wednesday, of an upcoming biography of Bush by USA Today's Susan Page, who spoke with the former first lady extensively in the final months of her life. Bush died last April and her husband, 41st President George H.W. Bush, died in November.

    [full article title: 'Putin endorsed him, for heavens sake!' Barbara Bush blamed TRUMP for her heart attack and kept a clock on her bedside table counting down the seconds until he would leave office] Barbara Bush hated Donald Trump so much that she kept a 'countdown clock' in her bedroom, ticking off the seconds until he would leave office. The former first lady died in April 2018 at the age of 92. Her husband, former President George H.W. Bush, passed away seven months later. She blamed the current president for a flare-up of her congenital cardiac condition, a moment she...

    During a portion of an interview set to air on Saturdays broadcast of CNNs Axe Files, former Florida Governor and 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush praised some of President Trumps policies, but criticized his foreign policy approach as a really dangerous one that has undermined trust in the U.S. and emboldened its enemies.

    In a packed room in College Hall on Wednesday night, former Governor of Florida Jeb Bush gave his first talk at Penn since being named the second Presidential Practice Professor. Bush addressed the partisan nature in politics today and the lack of dialogue that exists across the aisle, urging conservatives to return to the idea that America is the land of opportunity. The event, co-hosted by the Andrea Mitchell Center for the Study of Democracy and Penn Political Union, focused on the state of American democracy and what Bush calls increased tribal tendencies in partisan politics in a time of...

    Jeb Bush criticized President Trump's controversial tweets about the death toll in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. "Incredibly disheartening comments from our President," Bush tweeted Thursday. Trump beat the former Florida governor for the Republican nomination for president in 2016. Trump sparked controversy earlier Thursday when he tweeted that the estimated 3,000 death toll was intentionally inflated by Democrats. The 3,000 approximation comes from a George Washington University study that tried to total how many "excess deaths" occurred because of Hurricane Maria and would not have happened in the absence of the cyclone. Those involved with the study have emphasized...

    Sen. Ted Cruzs (R-Texas) former campaign spokesperson said that its possible for Cruz to lose his reelection bid to Democrat Beto ORourke. Rick Tyler, who served as Cruzs former communications director during his 2016 presidential run, appeared on MSNBC Sunday and admitted that Cruz could lose in the red state. As the former Cruz strategist, it does seem as though the signs are that Ted Cruz might actually lose this race? MSNBC host Kasie Hunt asked. Tyler said that even in a predominately Republican state, ORourke is posing a real challenge for the senator. Its possible

    Jeb Bush, who unsuccessfully ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016, told CNBC on Thursday he feels like a "fish out of water" in the current state of divisiveness in America. Asked if he'd ever consider running for president again, the 66-year-old former Florida governor said: "I don't know. I love policy. I love my country. But this political environment right now, I'm not suited for. To be honest with you. I'm a fish out of water. I can't imagine having to attack someone to make yourself look strong." In the "Squawk Box" interview, Bush said he did not...

    Former Florida governor Jeb Bush offered a rhetorical hat tip to one-time rival President Trump on Friday for the nations surging economy. The man deemed low-energy Jeb on the 2016 campaign trail by Mr. Trump took to Twitter to marvel at Americas high-octane economic growth 4.1 percent in the second quarter. Todays news confirms that 4% growth isnt just aspirational, its achievable through policies that unleash the power of the market, Mr. Bush wrote. Credit to @POTUSs economic policies. To sustain this growth, we must pursue a free trade agenda and move to a merit-based immigration system. Mr. Bush...

"Not dismissing this absurd request out of hand is an extraordinary sign of weakness by an American president," Bush tweeted. At a joint press conference in Finland, Putin said hed be willing to allow U.S. law enforcement to travel to Russia and observe the questioning of suspects implicated in special counsel Robert Muellers probe. In exchange, Putin said hed want access to U.S. citizens for...

    Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is calling on President Donald Trump to end the heartless policy of separating immigrant children from their parents at the U.S. border. Children shouldnt be used as a negotiating tool, Bush tweeted on Monday. @realDonaldTrump should end this heartless policy and Congress should get an immigration deal done that provides for asylum reform, border security and a path to citizenship for Dreamers. The failed presidential candidates plea came in response to President Trumps tweet in which he vowed to stop some of the worst criminals on earth, from using children to illegally enter the U.S....

    President Trump said on Wednesday that he never would have appointed Attorney General Jeff Sessions had he known Mr. Sessions would recuse himself from overseeing the Russia investigation that has dogged his presidency, calling the decision very unfair to the president. In a remarkable public break with one of his earliest political supporters, Mr. Trump complained that Mr. Sessionss decision ultimately led to the appointment of a special counsel that should not have happened. Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I...
