Trump talks about "a major, major conflict" with North Korea. A diplomatic solution might turn on China's role. A look at what China's done since 2000.

We're not sure when the House will vote on a health care bill. But we do know that over half of the claims people make about health care policy are basically wrong. Have fun browsing.

President Donald J. Trump wants to renegotiate the Iran deal. Sen. Marco Rubio said in its current form, the agreement doesn't do its job to prevent a nuclear Iran.

funny how Trump doesn't know his Buddys PUTIN and XI. and Obamas pals. leaders of Germany, France, UK, also signed... it wasn't a US deal.. nope.. Obama didn't come up with it..... Trump can't change the deal without 5 other world leaders.
today at 00:08
The "job" of the deal was never to stop Iran. It was to slow it. I believe Iran will only be stoped by war and I don't want war. However, I wish Trump good luck. Just don't make the deal go away trying to get a better deal.

Trump labors under the delusion he is a "master negotiator." In reality he was notorious for interrupting talks with unrealistic demands and then leaving the room for his many expensive lawyers to figure things out with all their lawyers. Often as not, they came to an agreement in spite of him, not because of him.

We updated our Trump Golf Tracker, which compares his time on the green to Obama's, to include Obama's first game in office, April 26, 2009.
In first 100 days, Obama played golf once. Trump has played 14 times.

I think it's because he's running the presidency like he did his business. He tells other people what to do and hopes it comes together. He doesn't actually know how to do anything himself. He may as well golf, because he's not going to actually do the hard work.

I wish the fascist gasbag would play MORE golf. Then he wouldn't have so much time to screw up the country.
today at 03:44
Give me a break. Mar-a Lago is his Florida home, and it happens to be a golf resort. He has not played golf every time he visits there. He works 7 days a week, and so what if he works in a golf game on a working weekend. A couple of them have been with world leaders, that's a way to build relationships, and negotiate , unlike Obama who played with his high school buddies , probably his former Choom gang members..

President Trump was so disrespectful towards President Obama.
He was a birther.
He did complain about Obama's executive orders, golf games...Pathetic hypocrite.

Executive orders. No legislation. Remember how Republicans howled at "King Obama " for signing executive orders. These mutts couldn't write a law that could withstand judicial review on a bet.

I dunno, the Global Gag rule, giving approval to the Keystone XL pipeline, and even the short time the Muslim ban was in place all are pretty damaging.
EDIT: Pro-tip - It's helpful to read the article/headline right, which I didn't do. This is about bills, which have largely (but not entirely) been insignificant.

Since becoming president, Donald Trump has reversed himself on many an issue — for example, whether presidents should take time to play golf.

Comon' PolitiFact, Call it like it is and don't sweeten it. Politicians are allowed to "flip-flop" on a few issues depending on changing circumstance and the prevailing political winds. Trump didn't "flip-flop" he simply lied to everyone about more issues than you can list just so he could get elected. Let's get used to being lied to now. Let's pray that the Republican Party and the Media can straighten him out.

Go to the store and see how many things are made in America..... our biggest employer sells goods from other countries. Free trade has destroyed our manufacturing jobs. Period. Go find a DVD player made in America. Go find a TV. Go find a stereo. A push mower. Even our own cars are built in Mexico or canada. Parts provided by China or Japan.
today at 03:32
It's ALL about cost.... Americans want to spend as little as possible for most products but this is in conflict with made in America...... it's less expensive or far less expensive to have products built in other parts of the world were the labor costs are much lower... in fact we can ship the materials to other countries and have them assembled and shipped back to the US and still be sold for less... ITS NOT A CONSPIRACY.... it's economics........

Remember, he had a lot of good press in a mostly clean campaign. Had he become the nominee (and I'm a Bernie fan btw) he'd have been hit with even more dirt than Hillary. As it is, he went out almost on top and didn't have to deal with the nasty negative campaigning in the race itself.

Bernie is a barnacle on the hull of the Democratic Party's ship. He doesn't contribute to or actually help the party. He's just along for the ride to get whatever he can out of it.
