    Photo by Chet Strange/Getty Images The Republican National Committee has warned former President Donald Trump it will no longer pay his legal bills if he announces a White House bid before the November midterms, per a report. ABC News’ Jonathan Karl reported the RNC has paid an estimated $1.7 million in Trump’s legal expenses since last fall. This just in … the RNC is warning Trump it will stop paying his legal bills if he launches a presidential campaign. That’s right. They are still paying his personal legal bills — more than $1.7 million since October. https://t.co/UG9zGArZP8 — Jonathan Karl (@jonkarl) July 27, 2022 Karl and ABC’s Soo Rin Kim reported there is a belief Trump might tank the Republican Party’s chances in November, should he insert himself into coming congressional races: Republican leaders who worry that Donald Trump could hurt their midterm chances by announcing a presidential run too soon are hoping he’ll be dissuaded from doing so by the prospect of losing hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal payments, according to an RNC official. Since October...
    President Joe Biden and a loyal group of advisers are reassuring Democratic allies he will seek a second term in the White House despite concerns about his health and his declining poll numbers. Biden, 79, has said both publicly and privately he will run again in 2024 but the behind-the-scenes outreach shows how jittery Democrats are about their leader and who would replace him at the top of the ticket should he not be on the ballot.  And some Democrats are even saying it doesn't matter whether or not Biden runs because anyone in their party could beat Donald Trump should the former president make good on his threat to run again. The chatter about Biden's political future comes as his approval rating sits in the low 40s, the party is suffering from in-fighting, the Democratic candidate lost the Virginia's gubernatorial race, and inflation soars around the country - along with the prices of food and gas. His advisers are making the calls to party faithful, The Washington Post reported while Biden privately told donors at a virtual fundraiser this month...
    Mark Meadows, former chief of staff to ex-President Donald Trump, is willing to put "all his money" on the line that Trump will make another bid for the White House. "If I were a betting, man … I would tell you to loan me all your money. I would put all my money in, and I would bet that he's running again," Meadows said during an appearance on SirusXM's "The Wilkow Majority" on Thursday. "He's in, and we will count on him running." White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows TRUMP, BIDEN, NOT ON THE BALLOT, BUT CENTER STAGE IN VIRGINIA GUBERNATORIAL SHOWDOWN Meadows said that he talks to Trump multiple times every week, even though he no longer works for the former president, noting that Trump is not taking any "joy" in the controversies currently embroiling President Biden. "I don't work for President Trump any longer, but we do talk multiple times a week. And I can tell you, he is not taking joy in it. In fact, he says that we've got to do something about...

    Joe Biden seemed to forget the defense secretary's name and even his job title in a speech yesterday - calling Lloyd Austin the 'guy who runs that outfit over there.'  The president was announcing two women were to be promoted to elite, four-star general commands at a ceremony at the White House on International Women's Day. 'I want to thank Sec-, the former general, I keep calling him "General." My - the guy who runs that outfit over there,' Biden said, before quickly adding, 'I want to make sure we thank the secretary for all he's done.' The 78-year-old self-confessed 'gaffe machine' has made verbal fumbles a hallmark of his career but there is growing disquiet over why Biden still hasn't held a press conference - no president in the last century has gone this long without taking questions from reporters.

    A rumor spread through MAGA Twitter on Wednesday that ABC News had retracted its projection that Joe Biden was set to win the state of Arizona, a claim that was treated as a hopeful sign that other calls for the state in the Democratic candidate’s favor were mistaken. But ABC News never called Arizona for Joe Biden. The outlet has refrained from calling the state for either candidate, as hundreds of thousands of votes are still being counted. Fox News called Arizona for Biden first on Tuesday night, prompting outrage from the Trump campaign, which has claimed it’s too early. The AP soon followed suit, calling the state for Biden. The rumor was inspired by conservative radio titan Rush Limbaugh, who made the following claim on his show Wednesday, which you can listen to above. I need more than one source on this. I’ve just heard that ABC News has taken in Arizona down for Joe Biden. I just found this, I don’t have enough time to research myself so I have assigned somebody to try to. OK, so...
    President Trump complained on Monday that Fox News had launched a bevy of 'negative ads' against him, adding that disgraced former CEO Roger Ailes was 'the greatest!' Trump made the controversial remark on Twitter just 30 minutes before he took the stage for a campaign rally in Sanford, Florida. He was diagnosed with COVID-19 in the first week of October, but his physicians have cleared Trump and said he tested negative for 'consecutive days.' 'Fox News allows more negative ads on me than practically all of the other networks combined,' he wrote in his latest criticism of the network.  President Trump (pictured) disparaged Fox News on Twitter Monday night ahead of his campaign rally in Sanford, Florida  Trump: 'Fox News allows more negative ads on me than practically all of the other networks combined' Trump then suggested Fox News' current era paled in comparison to the tainted media empire built under Roger Ailes.   'Not like the old days, but we will win even bigger than 2016. Roger Ailes was the GREATEST!' wrote Trump. Roger Ailes died in May 2017 surrounded...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Suspended officials at the agency that runs the Voice of America news outlet filed suit against it Thursday, accusing its CEO and his top aides of trying to turn it into a vehicle to promote President Donald Trump's agenda. The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, says the actions of U.S. Agency for Global Media CEO Michael Pack and his senior advisers violate the “statutory firewall” intended to protect VOA from political interference. National Public Radio, which first reported the lawsuit, said the five plaintiffs have all been suspended by Pack and are seeking reinstatement. Lawyer Theodore J. Boutrous Jr. told NPR, “The lawsuit we filed today seeks to vindicate core First Amendment principles that protect the independence and credibility of this country’s publicly funded media organizations, like Voice of America, which are under siege by the current administration.” Pack, a conservative filmmaker, Trump ally and one-time associate of former Trump political adviser Steve Bannon, took the helm of USAGM in June and has made no secret of his intent to...

    Mark Zuckerberg has dismissed calls for him to resign from Facebook as 'ridiculous' after facing backlash from employees at the charity he and his wife run over his refusal to crack down on President Donald Trump's posts and hate speech. The billionaire faced calls to resign from either Facebook or the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, which he started with his wife Priscilla Chan, during a town hall meeting last week with the charity's employees.  An engineer confronted the Facebook founder over his refusal to moderate President Donald Trump's posts and said that his decisions at the social media giant reflected on him as a leader.  According to a video of the remarks, which was obtained by Recode, Zuckerberg said that employees needed to decide for themselves if they wanted to work for the charity if they disagreed with the decisions he made at Facebook. The unidentified employee had said: 'You and Priscilla have emphasized that Facebook and CZI are two separate organizations. This is true, but we have the same leader - you.  'The actions you take at Facebook reflect on you as a...
    President Trump once again ran afoul of Twitter terms of service on Thursday when he took a swipe at the ‘fake news’ media by posting a doctored ‘CNN’ clip showing a black toddler run away in terror from a ‘racist baby’ who is ‘probably a Trump voter.’ The president shared a deceptively edited version of the adorable clip from last year which showed two little boys, Maxwell and his friend Finnegan, run toward one another as they giggle and laugh before giving each other a big hug. In the original video, the two two-year-olds are seen racing towards one another for a ‘besties’ hug. The heartwarming encounter between Maxwell, who is black, and Finnegan, who is white, was filmed by Maxwell’s father, Michael Cisneros. pic.twitter.com/vnRpk0zl5y— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 19, 2020 President Trump on Thursday shared a doctored video with a CNN chyron that reads: 'Terrified toddler runs from racist baby' The clip is a selectively edited and spliced version of a viral video from last year showing two two-year-old boys - one black and one white...
    With their boss growing increasingly agitated with the state of his re-election campaign and with the efforts of Republican critics to undermine it, President Donald Trump’s team hatched a plan. They’d run a series of hard-hitting ads and place them on networks that they knew the president and congressional Republicans would watch.  And so, over the past month, the Trump campaign has spent slightly more than $400,000 on cable news ads in the Washington, D.C., area, buying time largely on Fox News but with some smaller buys on CNN and MSNBC as well, according to filings with the Federal Communications Commission. The ads began running in late May and are scheduled through June 23. It is, on a purely electoral level, a remarkably quixotic use of campaign cash. The purchases have no real shot of moving D.C., Maryland, or Virginia into the Trump column. But that wasn’t the point. The Trump campaign said the ad buys were an attempt to reinvigorate and reassure the president’s supporters in the nation’s capital. “We want members of Congress and our DC-based surrogates to...
