    Donald Trump Jr. mocked Democratic Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) on Friday over a decades-old admission of domestic violence after the senator criticized a member of the White House staff. In a tweet, the president's son brought up Carper's 1998 admission that he once slapped his wife, giving her a black eye. The incident was reported in a 1982 New York Post article that claimed his wife's two children from a previous relationship "were slapped around and bruised by Carper for doing such things as leaving the family dog on the bed." Carper said late last year that he never lied...

    Donald Trump Jr. said in a new interview that he would back a conservative version of Facebook. “I’d love to do it. But what I prefer is, take one of the two Silicon Valley conservatives and let them start it,” Trump Jr. told Axios when asked if President Trump’s 2020 campaign might create such a platform. “And then I'd help promote the platform and be all over that.” Trump Jr.’s comments come on the heels of a report from The New York Times that more than 100 Facebook employees are forming a group to challenge what the group’s founder, senior...

    Donald Trump Jr. on Sunday claimed CNN is covering up for "leftist hack" Carl Bernstein, a veteran journalist known for his coverage of Watergate, over his reporting about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting. "Comical to watch @CNN covering for leftist hack @carlbernstein," the president's son tweeted. "He & Obama staffer @jimsciutto obviously got story wrong.

Bernstein and CNN's Jim Sciutto were among the reporters who wrote in July that Trump's...

    Veteran Republican operative Roger Stone predicts special counsel Robert Mueller will soon indict Donald Trump Jr. on a process crime. Following the indictments of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, the Office of the Special Counsel is now reportedly zeroing in on Trump Jr., whom Stone alleges will imminently face charges for making false statements to Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents. “The special counsel is going to charge Donald Trump Jr. with lying to the FBI. Notice they’re not charging him for having an illegal meeting with a Russian at Trump Tower because...

    For those who belong to the religious cult of Trump-Russia collusion, this meeting is prima facie evidence of the Trump campaign colluding with Russia to rig the 2016 election. One of the sacraments of this cult is that its adherents wake up every morning and hope that on this day, just maybe, Trump will finally be done away with. CNN is of course central to this practice. CNN’s Chris Cillizza called the anonymously sourced report a “collusion bombshell,” and said it was maybe the “most important [event] of Donald Trump’s presidency.” One wonders how many times CNN and its employees...

    1 – Rob Goldstone, the English publicist and music manager, admitted that when he wrote Donald Trump Jr. to set up the meeting with a Russian attorney at Trump Tower he used deliberately hyperbolic language to ensure that the meeting took place. Goldstone further said that he believes the meeting was a “bait and switch” by a Russian lobbyist seeking a meeting on another matter by misleadingly claiming to be bringing the Trump campaign dirt on Hillary Clinton. 2 – All participants in the meeting who have spoken publicly say no Russian dirt on Hillary Clinton was discussed. 3 –...

    Donald Trump Jr. is defending Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle after what he called a “racist” attack against his reported new love interest. President Trump‘s eldest son, 40, tweeted his outrage at the New York Daily News on Wednesday after one of its columnists wrote that Guilfoyle, 49, is “an otherwise brilliant woman” but “when it comes to picking men, though, she’d be better off picking grapes.” The column argued that Guilfoyle should be fired from her Fox News show The Five because of her reported romantic connection to the president’s son. Now, things appear to be heating up between...

    WASHINGTON — Three months before the 2016 election, a small group gathered at Trump Tower to meet with Donald Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son. One was an Israeli specialist in social media manipulation. Another was an emissary for two wealthy Arab princes.

The meeting was convened primarily to offer help to the Trump team, and it forged relationships between the men and Trump insiders that would develop over the coming months — past the election and well into President Trump’s...

Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with George Nader was held at Trump Tower in August 2016, The New York Times reported Saturday, noting the meeting and other interactions are the first indication that a country other than Russia may have offered to help the Trump campaign before the election. It remains unclear whether the plan was executed, and a lawyer for Zamel...
