During his speech at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia Wednesday night, President Barack Obama said Donald Trump is neither a Republican nor a conservative and that America can never be aided by a "self-declared savior" like him.
Speaking Thursday evening at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Obama commented on the GOP's convention last week in Cleveland, Ohio.
Best-selling author and megachurch pastor Max Lucado's op-ed went viral in February when he uncharacteristically broke his silence on politics, decrying Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's crude antics. But this week he shared his dream where Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton "reached a truce."
In his blog post titled "Trump, Hillary, and the Strangest Dream," Lucado recounts falling asleep after watching the Republican National Convention. Also weighing on his mind as he slept was news of national crises like the shooting violence of police officers and African American citizens.
But the convention he dreamed about was not the RNC. more >>
Democratic vice-presidential nominee, Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia said Hillary Clinton, his party's presidential nominee is ready for the top job in the White House because of her faith, heart and experience but trashed her Republican rival Donald Trump as a dangerous conman who should not be trusted.
In his remarks delivered at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Wednesday night, Kaine wasted very little time before firing shots at the New York billionaire.
"I want to thank my beautiful wife Anne and my three wonderful children, Nat, Woody, and Annella. Nat deployed with his Marine battalion two days ago to protect and defend the very NATO allies that Donald Trump now says he would abandon," Kaine said in the opening lines of his speech that was strategically punctuated with remarks in Spanish. more >>
Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine, a Catholic, made a private agreement with Hillary Clinton to flip-flop and support calls by her and the Democratic Party Platform to repeal a longstanding ban against taxpayer funds being used to pay for abortions.
Clinton spokesman Jesse Ferguson and Kaine's communications director Amy Dudley have said that Kaine, a senator from Virginia and the state's former governor, has privately told Clinton that he will support the party's move to repeal the Hyde Amendment, Bloomberg reports.
Kaine has in the past supported the Hyde Amendment — a measure that mostly bans the use of Medicaid tax dollars from being used for abortion services and has been attached to yearly appropriations bills since 1976. He has also supported parental consent measures and even authorized the "Choose Life" license plate when he was governor of Virginia in 2009. more >>
Hollywood stars Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Ruffalo and Kerry Washington have joined over 100 other actors in an online campaign targeted against Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
"We believe it is our responsibility to use our platforms to bring attention to the dangers of a Trump presidency, and to the real and present threats of his candidacy," the actors said in a joint statement.
"Donald Trump wants to take our country back to a time when fear excused violence, when greed fueled discrimination, and when the state wrote prejudice against marginalized communities into law," they argued, pleading with American voters not to vote for Trump in November. more >>
