Top 5 Things To Watch On Trump's State Of The Union Speech Tonight
State of Union speeches give presidents the chance to make their best case for the year, the State of Union speech for the year, would come later today January 30 9 PM EST. President Donald Trump would struggle to help his party keep control of both chambers of Congress in the midterms.

Trump’s demeanor on Tuesday night will matter as much – or more than – his words.

Below are the five things to watch in tonight’s speech.

1. Will Trump talk about health care?

Recent polling from POLITICO/Morning Consult showed that 59 percent of voters surveyed want Trump to talk about improving the health care system, followed by 58 percent who want discussion of creating jobs and improvi…

Trump: Someone Tell Jay-Z That Black Unemployment Rate Is At Record Low In 45 Years
Responding to Jay-Z's interview on CNN, President Donald Trump tweeted “Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!”. Which of course is right, maybe the Rap mogul has not been following the news lately about low black unemployment rate.

Jay-Z told CNN in a new interview that lower unemployment for the country’s African-American population is not enough, when people in power are still mistreating minorities and others.

“It's not about money at the end of the day,” he said in the interview. “Money doesn't equate to happiness. It doesn't. That's missing the whole point. You treat people like human beings. That's the main point."

Trump returned fire in a tweet Sunday morning, writing: “Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been r…

Trump Just Exposed 'Dangerous Fanatics Among The Democrats Say Laura Ingraham

Trump Just Exposed Fanatics Among The Democrats Says Laura Ingraham
According to Laura Ingraham President Donald Trump has exposed Democratic lawmakers for their "fanatical" reaction to President Donald Trump's immigration proposal.

Ingraham explained that Trump actually moved toward the middle with his immigration framework, which would offer a path to citizenship for 1.8 million so-called DREAMers, in exchange for funding for a border wall and a crackdown on chain migration and the diversity visa lottery program.
She said Trump's offer of amnesty for DREAMers enraged his base and perhaps hurt his chances at re-election.


Despite that, Democratic lawmakers like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) have slammed Trump and his immigration proposal.
"These people are total fanatics. They are fanatical for open borders and endless migration of low-skilled labor, purely for poli…

President Trump Ignores Question About Sh*thole Countries In A Meeting With Rwandan President

President Donald Trump ignored questions about his alleged “shithole countries” comment during a meeting with the Rwandan president on Friday, saying instead that the United States has “great relationships” with the African nation.
“We have trade with Rwanda. And just generally I would say great relationships,” Trump said while sitting next to Rwandan President Paul Kagame at the economic forum at Davos, Switzerland.
Trump also praised Kagame for being named the new head of the African Union, which had previously called on Trump to apologize for his alleged “shithole countries" comment.
But, according to a pool report, Trump ignored shouted questions about the comment when asked during the meeting.
Earlier in January, Trump reportedly questioned why the United States accepted immigrants from “shithole countries” during a meeting with bipartisan lawmakers to discuss immigration refor…

Trump: I Never Intended To Fire Mueller, It's Fake News
Following report floating the internet and the media that President Trump ordered special counsel Robert Mueller to be fired last year, the President has come out to refute the report blaming the "Fake News Media" particularly The New York Times.

President Trump on Friday denied reports that he ordered the firing of Special Counsel Robert Mueller in June and only backed down after his White House counsel refused to carry out the instruction and threatened to resign.

Trump, who is in Davos for the World Economic Forum, was asked directly about The New York Times’ story and said it was “fake news, folks, fake news. Typical New York Times fake stories.”

The Times’ report said that White House lawyer Don McGahn said he would not deliver the order to the Justice Department, according to The Times, which cites four people familiar with the request by the president.

Trump argued at the time that Mueller could not b…

President Trump Immigration Proposal Could Provide Path To Citizenship For 1.8 million Illegals
On Thursday, The White House released President Trump's immigration plan that would offer a path to citizenship for approximately 1.8 million of the so-called "Dreamers," along with a $25 billion investment in border security -- including for Trump's long-promised wall..

The White House was expected to provide more details of the president's proposal early next week. But the proposal represents a reversal for Trump and could provoke resistance among his conservative allies.

In September, Trump ended the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which currently covers roughly 690,000 immigrants who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children.
"We're not looking at citizenship," Trump told reporters at the time. "We're not looking at amnesty. We're looking at allowing people to stay here."

Trump's Year One Ends With Excellent Performance In Economy A recent poll by Fox News at the end of President Donald Trump's one year in office shows that majority(over 40%) believe the economy has been noticed a positive change. The result of this poll is unlike the previous polls where voters were questioning the President's mental stability.

This Fox News Poll conducted at the end of President Trump’s first year in the White House finds more voters rate the economy positively today than have in nearly two decades. This is a plus for the President.
And they give the White House credit for that: nearly twice as many say the Trump administration has made the economy better than made it worse: 40 percent vs. 22 percent. One-third says the administration has not made a difference (34 percent).


Approval of the job the president is doing on the economy is above 50 percent for the first time.   Trump’s overall approval stands at 45 percent, while 53 percent disapprove.  …

RNC Chair Ronna Romney Defends Trump Asking Top FBI Official How He Voted
Ronna Romney McDaniel the Republican National Committee chair defends the President's action of asking FBI agent who he voted during the presidential election. This she did by saying “He is certainly not going around to every single FBI agent and saying, 'Did you vote for me?'".

"I ask people who they vote for sometimes," McDaniel said on CNN’s New Day. "I think it is just trying to get to know somebody."
The Washington Post reported Tuesday that Trump asked McCabe about his vote in May during a “get-to-know-you” meeting. McCabe became acting director after the president fired former FBI Director James Comey. McCabe told Trump he didn’t vote.
McDaniel said that Trump was just being conversational and that he doesn't demand that information from everyone in government.

“He is certainly not going around to every single FBI agent and saying, 'Did you vote for me?…

"Cryin’ Chuck Schumer fully understands, especially after his humiliating defeat, that if there is no Wall, there is no DACA," the president tweeted around 11 p.m. ET. "We must have safety and security, together with a strong Military, for our great people!"

Earlier Tuesday evening, White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley slammed Schumer during an appearance on Fox News' "Outnumbered Overtime."

Following Backlash From Shoppers Amazon Pulls "Slavery Gets Sh**t Done" Items From Site

Following backlash from shoppers on the Amazon online retail store, items and products featuring the saying "Slavery Gets Sh*t Done" have been removed and are no longer available on the store. This is of course due to the racial undertone of such statements, which Amazon would not want to identify with.

The online retail giant removed the products — reportedly ranging from t-shirts, to bags, to mugs, to children’s clothing — following backlash from shoppers, Reuters reported Monday.



The controversial products, according to Amazon, were sold online by third-party sellers. “All Marketplace sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who don’t will be subject to action including potential removal of their account,” an Amazon spokesperson told Reuters. “The products in question are no longer available.” As of Tuesday, the items were removed from Amazon’s site, but a Goo…
