    Karl Rove, who served as a senior adviser to former President George W. Bush, said on Friday that former President Trump did not have the authority to take presidential documents with him to his Mar-a-Lago residence when he ended his term. “Why he was holding on to these materials when he had no legal authority to do so under the Presidential Records Act is beyond me,” Rove, a Fox News contributor, said during an appearance on the network. Rove’s appearance came shortly after a federal magistrate judge approved the release of a redacted affidavit used to convince him to approve...

    Former President Donald Trump told Fox News to dump Republican strategist Karl Rove in a statement from his political action committee Thursday. Rove wrote in The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday when he noted a so-called "muted enthusiasm" for Trump following a straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference showed 68% said the former president should run again in 2024. "Never had much of a feeling for Karl, in that I disagreed with so many of the things he says. He's a pompous fool with bad advice and always has an agenda," Trump wrote in a statement from his...

    Republican strategist Karl Rove said on this week’s broadcast “Fox News Sunday” that President Donald Trump should be aware Americans do not like “sore losers.” Anchor Chris Wallace asked, “The Electoral College votes tomorrow, and then on January 6, the Congress actually counts the votes and formally declares a winner. Do you expect President Trump to continue to contest the election past tomorrow, maybe even past January 6, and do you think he’s either helping or hurting both himself and the country?” < snip > He added, “As to your second question, it depends on — the answer to that...

    Monday Fox News contributor Karl Rove said President Donald Trump needs to do better than the “raw and dangerous” rhetoric he has used while commenting on racial issues. Discussing politicians comments on the recent mass shootings, Rove said, “Everybody in our political system needs to do better. The president needs to do better. His rhetoric at times has been raw and dangerous, I think in terms of being easily misunderstood. The Charlottesville statement, for example.”

    On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” network contributor and Republican strategist Karl Rove discussed President Donald Trump criticism of NFL players for taking a knee during the national anthem at games. According to Rove, Trump would be “walking away” from this controversy a “loser.” ... “He could have come away from this the winner,” he continued. “But he is walking away from this a loser in the minds of the American people for exactly the reasons you pointed out. He was against the federal government interfering and telling the Washington Redskins what their name should be. Now he...

    Karl Rove says that instead of nominating Donald Trump, Ted Cruz or John Kasich “a fresh face might be the thing that could give us a chance to turn this election and win in November against Hillary.” In an interview with Hugh Hewitt on Thursday, Rove weighed in on the 2016 election and called on Trump to start “acting in a presidential manner” in order to turn his high unfavorable ratings around. Hewitt asked Rove, “If Donald Trump is the nominee, how do you recover from a 30 percent favorable/63 percent unfavorable, as you note in your column today?” Rove...

    Karl Rove, a critic of Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, said late Wednesday that voters could stay home in November if the businessman becomes his party's nominee but doesn’t change his strategy for the general election fight. The GOP operative spoke with Democratic counterpart David Plouffe, who worked on President Obama’s campaigns, at an event held by technology company SAP at the Newseum. For much of the panel, the questions were framed around a hypothetical situation in which front-runners Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton had become the nominees. During a discussion about the role of data in campaigns, Rove said...

    -snip- Mr. Trump suggests those numbers will improve when he begins attacking Mrs. Clinton in the general election: “I haven’t even started on her yet.” Then again, neither have Democrats started on him. They will pummel him over his bankruptcies, this summer’s Trump University fraud trial, his crude and misogynistic statements, his nativism while hiring foreign workers, his imperious manner. These things may not matter to Mr. Trump’s die-hard Republican primary supporters; they will matter to swing voters in a general election. The GOP contest will arrive at its most critical moment next week. If Gov. Kasich wins Ohio, Sen....

    “It was the wrong message from the wrong messenger on the wrong day.” Republican strategist Karl Rove panned Mitt Romney’s anti-Trump speech in an interview that aired on Michigan local radio’s Big Show on Tuesday. Romney called Trump a “phony” and a “fraud” in a speech last week. Trump hit back, calling Romney a “failed candidate” who should have won in 2012. “It was the wrong message from the wrong messenger on the wrong day,” said Rove. “This was the day of the debate, so it’s going to get overwhelmed largely by last night. I thought the speech was good...

    Just last week, a years-long tradition came to a screeching halt. “You want me to put it on Fox News,” I asked my wife. “No,” she replied. “I’m done with Fox News.” My job is to monitor the mainstream media, which is something that eats up about 14 hours of a day that begins at 6 a.m. when the cable morning shows begin. Lying next to me, my good sport of a wife suffers through about an hour of “Morning Joe,” whatever they call that left-wing garbage fire on CNN, and the rest. Out of habit, before I head to...

    Front-running GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump doesn't yet have a "lock" on the nomination, but time is running out for another candidate to defeat him, according to political strategist Karl Rove. In a commentary for The Wall Street Journal, the former senior adviser and deputy chief of staff during the George W. Bush administration argues the GOP nomination -- "as long as three or more candidates are splitting delegates" in proportional contests -- may stay "uncertain" until March 15. But he could also seal the deal then "if a fragmented opposition gives him an absolute majority of delegates on that...

    For the first time in 68 years, the Republican Party will need more than one ballot to pick its nominee this summer in Cleveland, Karl Rove predicted in his annual list of prognostications. "Delegates will be fractured-with many legally bound, for at least one ballot, to support the winner of their state or district-and at least two ballots will be required," he wrote in The Wall Street Journal. -snip- Should Donald Trump, the current leader in most statewide and national polling, become the party's pick, Rove predicted that the Democrats would maintain control of the White House for another four...

    Karl Rove's quail hunting trip to the Texas-Mexico border over the Christmas holiday took an unexpected turn when he ran into two men hiding in the brush. The former adviser to President George W. Bush said he and a couple friends had been hunting near the southern border when they discovered the men lurking in a small grove of trees, according to a Tuesday interview with Fox News' Bill O'Reilly. They immediately called in Border Patrol officials, but attempted to detain the men while they waited for law enforcement. "One of them was in very bad shape. After our truck...

    Jeb Bush and his super PAC are set to assault New Hampshire airwaves with a series of ads leading up the first-in-the-nation presidential primary. The spending looks like an effort by Bush to empty campaign coffers, filled in a fundraising haul started in late 2014, in a last ditch effort to gain ground in a state famous for anointing the Republican establishment standard-bearer. This strategy includes two ads from Bush's PAC, Right to Rise. Those ads are set to air in New Hampshire during the Super Bowl. The Boston Herald reported that the Bush team has reserved more than $14...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and his super PAC are set to dominate the TV airwaves between now and the Granite State primary, reserving more than $14 million in commercials on both New Hampshire and Boston stations - including two Super Bowl spots - the Herald has learned. It's a clear sign that Bush operatives, despite criticism over already spending more than $35 million nationally on commercials for just 4 percent in the polls, are doubling down on a strategy of massive TV buys. Bush's forces plan to spend $14.1 million on ads on TV stations in New Hampshire and...
