Trump owned:

latest news at page 1:
    (CNN)On Sunday, in a speech to the Turning Point USA Student Action conference, Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz went out of his way to attack former Vice President Mike Pence."Our America is proudly ultra MAGA, not some low energy roadside RINO safari," said Gaetz, referring to a derogatory term for so-called moderate Republicans. "On that note, let me just say what everyone here knows: Mike Pence will never be president. Nice guy, not a leader."Gaetz was, as he is wont to do, playing to the crowd. Ever since Pence did his constitutional duty by certifying the 2020 election results on January 6, the likes of Gaetz -- and other devoted followers of Donald Trump -- have insisted he is something less than committed to the cause. (The cause? Insisting against all evidence that the 2020 election was stolen and Trump actually won.)While Gaetz's shot at Pence then got a good response in the room -- clapping, laughter -- one person who caught what the Florida congressman said wasn't pleased. And decided to speak out.Here's Marc Short, Pence's former chief of staff,...
    Al Bello/Getty Has Rupert Murdoch turned on former President Donald Trump? A pair of blistering opinion pieces by two U.S. newspapers he owns suggests that the answer to that question is yes, he has. Both the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post published harsh criticism of the former president in the past few days, including “utterly failed” and “unfit for office,” respectively, following damning evidence put forth Thursday night by the House Select Committee about Trump’s actions, or lack thereof, during a fateful 187 minutes while the Capitol riots unfolded. The WSJ Editorial board published a piece titled “The President Who Stood Still on Jan. 6,” the lede of which read, “No matter your views of the Jan. 6 special committee, the facts it is laying out in hearings are sobering. The most horrifying to date came Thursday in a hearing on President Trump’s conduct as the riot raged and he sat watching TV, posting inflammatory tweets and refusing to send help.” More damning to Trump was its conclusion: “Character is revealed in a crisis, and Mr. Pence...

San Jose’s pick for tiny homes is all wrong The city of San Jose is intent on building a “tiny homes” project in my Berryessa neighborhood. (“San Jose approves new tiny homes sites,” Page B1, June 23) Homelessness is a vexing problem needing much attention, but this particular site is a disaster for multiple reasons: It sits adjacent to an elementary and a middle school, a day care and a well-used library; it’s in the middle of a popular recreational area that also serves to percolate Penitencia Creek water into the valley’s groundwater aquifer; and, the site is far from transit and the many services needed by the homeless. Considering these flagrant flaws, the city voted down the site in 2018, but recently reversed course. Nothing has changed between 2018 and 2022. While city and state leaders get to pad their résumés, it’s at the expense of large, long-term, negative social and financial impacts to taxpayers and the neighborhood where the project is being force-fit....

    Arizona’s Republican Senate debate got heated on Wednesday night as Trump-backed Blake Masters and businessman Jim Lamon traded stinging barbs. The third candidate on the stage, retired U.S. Air Force Maj. Gen. Michael McGuire, largely avoided the vitriol, while State Attorney General Mark Brnovich opted to skip the debate and said in a statement he was in Washington, D.C. to “fight for the people of Arizona and against the Biden Administration’s open-border policies.” In what is already one of the most expensive primaries this cycle, the battle for the GOP nomination remains incredibly close as Masters leads but continues to be dogged by scandals regarding his past. “We need to implement these ‘America First’ policies,” Masters said during the debate, boasting of his Trump endorsement. “President Trump trusts me to do that. He met with Jim Lamon, he thought he was a bozo. I am the America First candidate, that is why I am endorsed.” Lamon hit back at Masters hard, slamming him for the millions that billionaire Peter Thiel has put behind his campaign. “Let’s look no further than...

    Sam Greenwood/Getty Images Legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus blamed “cancel culture” on the PGA’s decision to relocate this year’s championship to Tulsa, Oklahoma — and away from a New Jersey course owned by former President Donald Trump. The annual event was originally scheduled to be held at former Trump’s course in Bedminster. Nicklaus, who holds the record for the most major wins with 18, criticized PGA CEO Seth Waugh, who pulled the rug out from under Trump days after last January’s riot at the U.S. Capitol. “I like Seth Waugh,” Nicklaus told Michael Bamberger of Fire Pit Collective. “Seth didn’t need this job. He took the job because he thought he could give the PGA of America some good guidance.” Nicklaus said while Waugh is doing a good job running Golf’s covering body, the decision to pull a major from Trump was unfair. “But this move is cancel culture,” Nicklaus said. “Donald Trump may be a lot of things, but he loves golf and he loves this country. He’s a student of the game and a formidable figure in the game....
    The sign bearing the former president’s name on the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. came down on Wednesday night following the sale of the property. New York Times investigative reporter Eric Lipton took a video of the sign coming down. A worker can be seen on a lift taking off the lettering. Very slow going. Letters really nailed in there. pic.twitter.com/83NAmpYDEZ — Eric Lipton (@EricLiptonNYT) May 12, 2022 The hotel, whose sale to Miami-based CGI Merchant Group for $375 million is set to be done by the end of the month, was a mainstay for Donald Trump supporters and lobbyists during his presidency. The Trump family stands to get a $100 million profit following paying off debts and other dues. The building will become a Waldorf Astoria. The General Services Administration, which owned the property, transferred the property to CGI and Hilton Worldwide Holdings, Inc., in March. Before it was a Trump hotel, it was the Old Post Office and owned by the federal government. In a statement, the Trump Organization celebrated the sale. “The sale of Trump International Hotel...
    Chinese-owned TikTok is frantically working to move all data it holds on US users to the US, and putting an American team in control, according to reports.  ByteDance, owner of the popular social video app, has launched Project Texas, which will also see an end to US employees reporting to its managers in Beijing.  Efforts to bring data to the US started a year ago, with thousands of TikTok staff  involved in the effort, including limiting access to the data from outside the US.   According to a BuzzFeed report, this is the way ByteDance has decided to handle concerns from US regulators that the Chinese government could use the app to access sensitive information on people living in the US. As well as moving data, a number of core TikTok systems, including those that check how viral a video has become, will be cloned and operated from the US for the first time, and so will the algorithm that power the 'For You' page recommendations.  Chinese-owned TikTok is frantically working to move all data it holds on US users to...
    In a recent podcast interview, former Rep. Joe Crowley reflected on his upset defeat when Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won a Democratic primary against him, the influence of former President Donald Trump on his own loss, and said he’s happy with some of the opportunities he has had since serving in Congress, including producing a new Broadway show. Crowley was a House member for 20 years and a member of Democratic leadership before he was vanquished in 2018 in the 14th Congressional District Democratic primary by the liberal Ocasio-Cortez, a former intern for Sen. Bernie Sanders and a bartender. Crowley's defeat in the Bronx- and Queens-based district was among the most shocking in the decade for Democratic incumbents. Especially for a lawmaker seen as a possible future successor as Democratic leader to Nancy Pelosi. ‘LET’S GROW UP ABOUT THIS’: PELOSI BRISTLES AT QUESTIONS OF LEGISLATIVE ACUMEN “You know, I never owned the seat in that congressional district. A congressional district is not owned by any one person,” Crowley said in a recent interview on the podcast...
    Just as lawyers filed an appeal to keep Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump, and Donald Trump Jr. from being forced to sit for depositions related to the New York attorney general’s civil investigation into the Trump Organization, and just as the House committee investigating the January 6th attack on the Capital laid out potential criminal charges against the former president, the legally embattled Trump family has re-listed an oceanfront mansion in Palm Beach at $59 million, a whopping ten million bucks more than was asked last year when it was briefly available at $49 million. As was initially reported by New York Post, the home had long been owned by Trump’s older sister, retired federal appeals judge Maryanne Trump Barry, who purchased the property in 2004 for $11.25 million. Barry initially put the place up for sale in late 2017 at $22.9 million; the price quickly (and inexplicably) jumped to $23.9 million before it was sold at a steep discount, in May 2018 for $18.5 million, to a company tied to the Trump family and managed by Eric Trump. About 2.5...
    Chinese-owned social media giant TikTok thrived during the first year of President Joe Biden’s presidency following unsuccessful efforts by the Trump administration to crack down on the popular app. TikTok was recently dubbed the most popular website in the world, with over 100 million users in the United States, despite concerns about data privacy and TikTok’s strong links to China. Biden officials emphasize a national security review of the app is underway. “The Biden administration believes certain countries, including the People’s Republic of China, seek to leverage digital technologies and Americans’ data in ways that present unacceptable national security risks while advancing authoritarian controls and interests,” a National Security Council spokesperson told the Washington Examiner. “That is why President Biden put forward a new Executive Order to take strong steps to protect Americans’ sensitive data from collection and utilization by foreign adversaries, including the PRC.” The NSC said a separate review by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States “is ongoing.” The Trump administration labeled TikTok a national security threat due to concerns...
    During his tirades against House Democrats, former President Donald Trump has often attacked the four progressive congresswomen who comprise "The Squad." And he did exactly that during a Monday appearance on Ari Hoffman's radio show. Trump slammed The Squad as anti-Semitic and anti-Israel — even while using the antisemitic trope that Israel "controls Congress." The Squad consists of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York City, Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts. Trump, during the interview, accused them of hating Israel —seemingly oblivious to the antisemitic things he was saying. "The biggest change I've seen in Congress is Israel literally owned Congress, you understand that — ten years ago, 15 years ago," Trump told Hoffman. "And it was so powerful, so powerful. And today, it's almost the opposite. You have, between AOC and Omar and these people that hate Israel — they hate it with a passion. They're controlling Congress. And Israel is not a force in Congress anymore." Trump continued, "I mean, it's just amazing. I've never seen such a...
    A PLANE owned by the Trump Organization was reportedly forced to divert as the aircraft tower said it "looks like we have an emergency inbound." The plane was headed from Newburgh, New York, when it made the detour. 1 The aircraft, which is a Boeing 757-200 that is owned by Donald Trump, was reportedly on its way to Lake Charles, Los Angeles, for repairs. However, on the way it stopped in Nashville with the winding descent track suggesting that the pitstop was not planned. According to an aviation journalist, the tower said: "it looks like we have an emergency inbound." However, this has not been directly linked to the Trump Organization aircraft. Chatter regarding the plane claimed that it was going to Los Angeles for repairs and would not have had anyone on board, bar the pilot.

    Former President Donald Trump said in a recent interview Israel “literally owned Congress” until a few years ago. During the interview with The Post Millennial’s Ari Hoffman, the conversation turned towards the Abraham Accords and what the Trump administration did for Israel. Trump said he thinks “breaking up the Iran nuclear deal” was the biggest thing he did for Israel, before claiming he’s been “affectionately told” he could easily win if he ran for Prime Minister. He went on to say “they like me more” there than Jews in the United States. If you look at the vote, it’s incredible that I didn’t get the kind of a vote from Jewish people that you would think I would get. Jewish people in this country, many of them, do not like Israel. “I’m so surprised, because you would have thought that between all of the things I did…” he continued, again expressing confusion at how he didn’t do “better with the Jewish vote.” After Hoffman talked about Trump supporters in Israel, the former president said that up until a few years...
                        After former President Donald J. Trump attempted to ban TikTok, a popular video streaming social network, the Chinese-owned company has overtaken Google-owned YouTube in popularity in the United States. “App users in the UK and US are spending more time on TikTok than on YouTube, a new report suggests,” BBC reported. “Data from app monitoring firm App Annie indicates that average time per user spent on the apps is higher for TikTok, indicating high levels of engagement.” For now, YouTube still remains ahead of its up-and-coming opponent in time spent on the website overall, but not per user. YouTube still has many more users than TikTok. In August of 2020, Trump signed an executive order banning the use of the app in the United States. He banned the app over concerns that the Chinese-based company was undermining American national security by collecting massive amounts of data on its American users. “This data collection threatens to allow the Chinese Communist Party access to Americans’ personal and proprietary information —...
    Prosecutors investigating former President Donald Trump's business empire are reported to have evidence that Barry Weisselberg, a Trump Organization employee, avoided taxes by living for free in a luxury apartment owned by the company.  Weisselberg is the manager of Trump's Wollman ice rink in Central Park and the son of Allen Weisselberg, 73, the company's chief financial officer who last month was charged with tax fraud in a New York court.  In the latest twist, the Daily Beast reported that prosecutors in Manhattan have evidence that Barry avoided paying taxes on a company apartment. It said details emerged from a decade of financial documents handed over by Weisselberg's ex-wife Jennifer, who has emerged as a key witness.   Three people familiar with the investigation told the news organization that is was not clear whether prosecutors were planning to use the information to pressure Weisselberg to flip, potentially giving evidence against Trump and his businesses.  Barry Weisselberg is the manager of Trump's Wollman ice rink in Central Park and the son of Allen Weisselberg, the company's chief financial officer who last...
    Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz got a humiliating answer when he asked a rhetorical question involving his latest fundraising appeal, which touts the idea that former President Donald Trump be made speaker of the House if Republicans retake the lower chamber. On Wednesday, Punchbowl News’ Jake Sherman tweeted a Gaetz fundraising letter that repeatedly promises to install Trump as second in line to the presidency should the GOP retake the House: America Last Democrats have weaponized their House majority to pursue a far-left agenda, to surround our nation’s Capitol Building in barbed wire for political theater, and to target Trump supporters by calling them “extremists.” So just think about how great it will feel when, after we take back the House and send Pelosi back to the filth of San Francisco, we make our next Speaker of the House Donald J.

    The U.S. Commerce Department said on Monday that it is rescinding a Trump-era list of prohibited transactions involving the Chinese-owned social media platforms TikTok and WeChat, which sought to block new U.S. downloads of the apps affiliated with the communist regime. President Joe Biden has withdrawn of a series of executive orders by former President Donald Trump, which sought to ban the Chinese apps TikTok and WeChat, according to a report by Reuters. Instead, the Biden administration has decided to conduct its own review of security concerns posed by the apps ties to China. The order directs Biden’s U.S. Commerce Department to monitor apps like TikTok, and within 120 days, make recommendations regarding the protection of U.S. data acquired or accessible by companies controlled by foreign adversaries. In August, amid a larger push to limit the Chinese Communist Party’s access to U.S. data, President Trump had ordered sweeping restrictions against TikTok and WeChat. “The spread in the United States of mobile applications developed and owned by companies in the People’s Republic of China continues to threaten the national security, foreign policy...
    Florida’s Miami-Dade County city of Doral voted unanimously on Wednesday to officially ban gambling and casinos in the city, potentially putting in jeopardy reported plans for the Trump-owned Doral golf resort to establish its own casino.  With the 4-0 vote from the Doral city council, properties wishing to establish gambling or a casino must get a request approved by residents in a referendum.  The move follows last month’s approval from the Florida state legislature for a 30-year compact between the Seminole Tribe of Florida and the state of Florida.  Under the agreement, the tribe would be prohibited from interfering if the state government decides to give a gambling license to a facility that is more than 15 miles “in a straight line” from the tribe’s Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood.

    President Joe Biden has reversed executive orders from former President Donald Trump that tried to ban the popular Chinese-owned video app TikTok. Mr. Biden replaced the failed ban with a new executive order calling for a government review of foreign-owned apps, and whether they pose any security risks. The White House said in a statement that it is "committed to promoting an open, interoperable, reliable and secure Internet" and "protecting human rights online and offline." The statement singled out China as an example of a country that does "not share these values and seek to leverage digital technologies and Americans' data in ways that present unacceptable national security risks while advancing authoritarian controls and interests." Chinese companies are required under the country's law to share data with the ruling Chinese Communist Party. TikTok has said that its data on U.S. users is stored in the U.S., with backups in Singapore, and not shared with the Chinese government.  CBS News has reached out to TikTok for comment. Mr. Trump issued orders last summer that would have banned TikTok from operating within in...
    Fox News' "The Five" slammed the media's "purely political" self-reflection on their initial dismissal of the theory that the coronavirus originated from a lab in Wuhan, China.  Host Jesse Watters noted how the media appeared to "self-own" themselves by admitting just that—that their hatred of former President Donald Trump fueled their refusal to consider the lab leak theory. "Chuck Todd said [the lab-leak theory] got tangled up in politics and conflated with the idea that the Chinese deliberately released it. Who was the one that tangled it? Who was the one that conflated it? It was the media that did that."

    Rep. Matt Gaetz, who is under federal investigation over whether he had sex with a minor, is scheduled to speak at a conservative summit this week in Florida in front of an organization that strongly supports former President Donald Trump. The Florida Republican will speak at the Save America Summit on Friday at Trump's Doral golf club and resort in Miami, according to a readout from the host, the pro-Trump group Women for America First, which was obtained by the Washington Examiner. Organizers said some of the conference topics will include "election integrity," "big tech and censorship," and "defeating the radical Biden/Harris agenda." The event will likely be the first public event the 38-year-old Gaetz will speak at since reports emerged on March 30 that the Justice Department has been investigating him since last summer over whether he had sex with a 17-year-old and paid for her to travel with him. Gaetz has vociferously denied all allegations of wrongdoing, saying he is being subjected to "false allegations," and accused a former Department of Justice official of attempting to extort...

    AT&T pressured the Commerce Department to keep a Chinese military-controlled telecom company off the United States' sanction list despite their use of forced labor and other human rights abuses against Uyghur Muslims, former Commerce Department undersecretary Corey Stewart told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Wednesday. Stewart verified allegations first reported by the National File, revealing that AT&T executive Ed Gillespie requested that the department keep China Telecom off of what is called the "entities list," reserved for foreign companies who are engaged in human rights or national security violations. The company, headquartered in Beijing, is involved in a joint venture with AT&T and was set to be sanctioned due to its alleged support of human rights abuses by China's Communist government. "It was very disturbing because we had a lot of indications, there is very good intelligence out there, that the Chinese government, through its basically state-owned subsidiary of China Telecom has been using cell phone technology, telecommunications technology, to track minority populations in China, to spy on them, and then to hand this information over to the China police state, and they are rounding up the Uyghur population...," Stewart said.

    Ana Navarro panned House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's recent meeting with President Trump at Mar-a-Lago, saying the GOP congressman is a "slave" to the former commander-in-chief.   Serving as a guest co-host of "The View" on Friday, Navarro went on a tear against the Republican Party for failing to "get rid of the cross that they've been bearing" by not supporting Trump's impeachment. She accused the former president of dividing the GOP and opening the party to "all sorts of nutjobs." MEGHAN MCCAIN KNOCKS BIDEN'S TIDAL WAVE OF EXECUTIVE ORDERS: 'THIS ISN'T HEALING' "Instead what we see is Kevin McCarthy, who has been all over the place, going down, making a pilgrimage to I guess what's going to become the Republican Mecca, what I call 'Far-a-Lago,'" Navarro said. "He went down there to make nice with Donald Trump because Donald Trump is threatening to open up a third party if Republicans don't continue to kiss his ring, among other body parts." "I think it's pathetic... I think it's white slavery, what I just witnessed from Kevin McCarthy. He looks like he’s owned by his master, and his...
    Ana Navarro told her co-hosts on ABC’s “The View” that House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) meeting with former President Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago is “white slavery.” Navarro said, “This has been such a sad week for the Republican Party because this is a time when they had a chance to get rid of the cross that they have been bearing with Donald Trump, who has divided the party and opened it up for all sorts of nut jobs to come into the party. Instead, what we see is Kevin McCarthy, who has been all over the place, making a pilgrimage to I guess what is going to become now the Republican Mecca, I call it Far-a-Lago. And by the way, can we put the picture back up?” “Can we just talk about the interior of Mar-a-Lago?” Navarro continued. “It’s like, what vintage bordello look? And so he went down there to make nice with Donald Trump because Donald Trump is threatening to open up a third party if Republicans don’t continue kissing his ring, among other body parts.

    YouTube has indefinitely suspended Donald Trump from its platform and also barred his lawyer Rudy Giuliani from being able to monetize his content. The Google-owned social media behemoth imposed a temporary ban on Trump's channel two weeks ago, depriving his 3 million subscribers of content 'in light of the ongoing potential for violence.' It joined a raft of Silicon Valley heavyweights in censoring Trump for the Capitol riot over allegations that he fomented the deadly 'insurrection'.  YouTube said said separately that Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani had also been taken off its Partner Program - which allows creators to make money off their videos.  Donald Trump was issued with a temporary ban on January 12 following the upload of a speech from Alamo, Texas that day. He told the Democrats: 'Be careful what you wish for' when discussing his impeachment Donald Trump has almost 3 million subscribers on the Google-owned site Giuliani, Donald Trump's personal attorney and the man who spearheaded his failed legal battle to overturn the presidential election, had defended Wednesday's rioters who stormed the US...
    By Mark Sherman | Associated Press WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Monday brought an end to lawsuits over whether Donald Trump illegally profited off his presidency, saying the cases are moot now that Trump is no longer in office. The high court’s action was the first in an expected steady stream of orders and rulings on pending lawsuits involving Trump now that his presidency has ended. Some orders may result in dismissals of cases since Trump is no longer president. In other cases, proceedings that had been delayed because Trump was in the White House could resume and their pace even quicken. The justices threw out Trump’s challenge to lower court rulings that had allowed lawsuits to go forward alleging that he violated the Constitution’s emoluments clause by accepting payments from foreign and domestic officials who stay at the Trump International Hotel and patronize other businesses owned by the former president and his family. The high court also ordered the lower court rulings thrown out as well and directed appeals courts in New York and Richmond, Virginia, to dismiss...

    Opinion: Biden rescinding the 1776 Commission doesnt end the fight over history Bidens first Cabinet member to lead battered intel agencies China Mobile, China Unicom Seek Reviews of NYSE Delisting (Bloomberg) -- China Mobile Ltd. and China Unicom Hong Kong Ltd. said they requested a review of the New York Stock Exchange’s decision to delist the country’s state-owned telecommunications firms’ shares more than a week ago. © Bloomberg The China Mobile Ltd. logo is displayed in Beijing, China, on Monday, March 15, 2010. The delisting move caused wild swings in their stock as investors were left with little time to react to the decision. It also prompted some global equity indexes to remove the securities. The NYSE indicated it was acting to comply with an executive order issued by former U.S. President Donald Trump, barring investments in companies deemed by the U.S. to be owned or controlled by China’s military. The ambiguously worded order was part of Trump’s effort to punish China in the waning days of his presidency. Under his administration, the U.S. has sought to sever economic...

    President Trump and First Lady Melanie Trump return to the White House from Palm Beach on December 31, 2020. Tasos Katopodis/Getty Images A Palm Beach mansion that sits on land once owned by President Donald Trump just hit the market for $140 million, Darrell Hofheinz reported for the Palm Beach Daily News. The newly built $140 million home is on two acres that were once part of a larger parcel that Trump sold to Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev for $95 million in 2008. If it sells at or near that price, it would shatter the area's real-estate record, which is currently held by a Billionaires' Row estate that sold for $111 million in 2019. The contemporary mansion sits right on the beach, about a 10-minute drive from Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club. It has nine bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, a guest house, and a massive oceanfront swimming pool.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.
