    U.S. Rep. Max Rose of Staten Island announced his endorsement of Michael Bloomberg’s presidential bid, making Mr. Rose the first member of Congress to back the former New York City mayor’s campaign. Mr. Rose, a Democrat, specifically cited Mr. Bloomberg’s management of the city in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Mr. Bloomberg was elected to the first of his three terms as mayor that year. “Mayor Bloomberg’s even-keeled and visionary leadership is what we need to reduce the chaos, partisanship and hyper-vitriol that has overtaken Washington,” Mr. Rose said. “Rather than submit to another stage of...

    The freshman House Democrats who gave House Speaker Nancy Pelosi her gavel by flipping Trump districts in 2018 are now in the impeachment hot seat. Seven local first-termers - New York Reps. Max Rose, Antonio Delgado, and Anthony Brindisi and New Jersey Reps. Jeff Van Drew, Andy Kim, Josh Gottheimer, and Mikie Sherrill - represent districts that voted for President Trump in 2016 but swung into the Democrats’ column in the midterm election. Now the rookies must choose which of their voters to piss off. “The luckiest guys in America this week are probably pollsters being paid to do polls...

    November 30th marked the first anniversary of the signing of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) by President Trump, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto  and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The purpose of the agreement is to rebalance and modernize the North American Free Trade Agreement into a 21st century, high-standard trade deal. The new USMCA will benefit American workers, farmers, ranchers, and businesses and support mutually beneficial trade leading to freer markets, fairer trade, and robust economic growth throughout North America.   From the moment it was signed, its ratification by Congress has been a priority of President Trump, his...
  • Sanders Calls on Dems to Speak out Against Omar Over ‘Disgraceful’ Comments She ‘Continues to Make’

    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders sided with President Donald Trump and other Republicans in the controversy following comments made by Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) on the September 11 terrorist attacks. Omar drew some questions after she a vague reference to the September 11 terrorist attacks, saying that “some people did something.” As IJR previously reported, her comments sparked a lot of backlash from Republicans, including President Donald Trump and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) and at least one of her Democratic colleagues, Rep. Max Rose (D-N.Y.). Several people were frustrated with Omar’s comments, but some feared that calling out...

    U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal is “a lie to voters” and a “massive socialist” program, a fellow New York Democrat, U.S. Rep. Max Rose, asserted in a television interview. Rose then dared Ocasio-Cortez to recruit a candidate to run a primary challenge against him, saying he would “lay out the red carpet.” The comments from Rose, a 32-year-old U.S. Army veteran who served in Afghanistan -- earning Purple Heart and Bronze Star for his service -- followed multiple questions and comparisons to the firebrand New York congresswoman, who’s facing ridicule over the Green New Deal, her plan for...

    U.S. Rep. Max Rose, a Jewish New York Democrat in his first term in Congress, apologized to visibly frustrated constituents at a town hall in Staten Island on Tuesday for not "protecting them" from fellow freshman Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar's repeated use of "anti-Semitic tropes." Rose's comments came as Minnesota Democrats are seriously considering the prospect of supporting an unprecedented primary challenge against the 37-year-old Omar in 2020, following bipartisan condemnation of several of her remarks, according to officials and state representatives. Earlier this month, the House passed a bipartisan resolution condemning hate of all kinds in the wake of Omar's comments. But Democrats kept Omar's...

    Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton called out Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Sunday evening for using an anti-Jewish stereotype when she alleged that members of Congress had been paid to support Israel. Omar began by tweeting “It’s all about the Benjamins baby” in response to a comment by left-wing Israel critic Glenn Greenwald in which he lamented that Congress in general, and Republicans in particular, supported Israel. At no point did Omar acknowledge that what she had said was in any way antisemitic or offensive. Chelsea Clinton’s husband, Marc Mezvinsky, is Jewish.

    President Trump hosted a number of Republican and Democratic House lawmakers at the White House Wednesday to negotiate over border security and end the ongoing government shut down. “The President and his team had a constructive meeting with bipartisan members of the problem solvers caucus. They listened to one another and now both have a good understanding of what the other wants. We look forward to more conversations like this,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said about the meeting.  These House Democrats in the centrist Problem Solvers Caucus met today with @realDonaldTrump in the Situation Room to discuss the shutdown: Josh...

    12:30 p.m. Seven Democratic lawmakers, including newly elected freshmen, have arrived at the White House ready to ask President Donald Trump to reopen the government while talks continue over border security. It's the first group of rank-and-file Democrats to meet with Trump during the shutdown, which stretched into its 26th day Wednesday. The White House has been trying to peel lawmakers away from Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (puh-LOH'-see), but invitations to Democrats earlier this week were declined. Those arriving Wednesday for the midday meeting in the Situation Room included five freshmen, several of whom did not back Pelosi as...

    Republican Staten Island Rep. Dan Dovonan was defeated by an Afghan war vet in a major House upset Tuesday night, losing his bid for a second full term in a seat he was favored to win for months. The upset came at the hands of Democrat Max Rose, who combined a massive fundraising haul with an energetic persona to dispatch the longtime politician. Donovan quickly conceded at his election night party.
