GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump was repeatedly asked in an interview to state his favorite Bible verse, since Trump had previously declared the Bible to be his favorite book, but declined each time and explained that it is "very personal" to him.
"I wouldn't want to get into it. Because to me, that's very personal," Trump said Wednesday on Bloomberg's "With All Due Respect."
He was asked again if there is any one particular verse that means a lot to him, to which he said: "The Bible means a lot to me, but I don't want to get into specifics." more >>
Donald Trump has resumed trolling Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly on Monday night, on her first on air after several days of vacation.
The Republican presidential candidate first criticized Megyn Kelly over her questions about Donald Trump's misogynistic comments during the August 6 GOP presidential debate. This time, the Fox News chairman defended Kelly after the latest Twitter attack on the female anchor, according to the New York Post (NYP).
"I liked The Kelly File much better without @megynkelly," the NYP quotes Trump's tweet on Monday. "Perhaps she could take another eleven day unscheduled vacation!" more >>
Republican presidential contender and celebrity billionaire Donald Trump will meet privately with a group of Christian leaders at the behest of Florida megachurch pastor and prosperity preacher Paula White.
The Wall Street Journal reported that news Wednesday, citing public relations executive Sheila Withum, who said she received an invitation to the gathering, composed of "selected Christian leaders and ministry professionals."
Withum reportedly revealed that the private gathering was scheduled to take place on Sept. 28 at the Trump Tower in New York City. She described the gathering as "a small group meeting, maximum 30 people," according to the Wall Street Journal. more >>
When, in 2012, I authored a cautionary tale about the dangers of a nuclear Iran, I never imagined a U.S. president who would, just a few years later, actively try to strengthen Iran's geopolitical and financial position while providing international legitimacy to the Iranian nuclear program. But sometimes truth is scarier than fiction.
In my thriller, 35 Israeli submariners must decide what to do after Iran gets "the bomb." In an unexpected twist on fiction, a small group of undecided members of Congress may similarly have to determine the course of history. They represent the last chance for a democracy to reject the nuclear appeasement of the Ayatollahs. There are reportedly 26 Senate Democrats currently in favor of President Obama's Iran deal, so eight more are needed to sustain Obama's veto of a Congressional resolution disapproving of the Iran agreement.
But as ineptly negotiated as the Iran agreement is, defeating it would probably be worse, given the political realities. The best possible outcome, at this point, would be a Congressional resolution that rejects the Iran deal but then gets vetoed by Obama. Why? Because if Congress overrides Obama's veto and defeats the deal, Iran will likely use that as an excuse to abandon whatever limited and temporary constraints it accepted under the agreement. Iran can then — at a time of its choosing — race towards nukes while Obama is still in office, secure in the knowledge that Obama wouldn't dare to stop Iran militarily. more >>
Donald Trump is not yet done wreaking havoc in the media industry as he has kicked Univision anchor Jorge Ramos out of a press conference in Dubuque, Iowa on Tuesday.
The Republican presidential candidate once again made headlines after a confrontation with Univision's Jorge Ramos during Tuesday's news conference. The television personality was kicked out of the conference after asking Donald Trump about his proposed immigration policy, according to an AP report published by the Business Insider.
Trump's immigration proposal aims to put an end to birthright citizenship in the United States. During the conference, Trump interrupted Ramos in the middle of a question and told the news anchor to sit down because he had not yet called on Ramos. The billionaire also told Ramos to "Go back to Univision." more >>
A regional chapter of Planned Parenthood has filed a lawsuit against Louisiana following the state's decision to defund the abortion provider.
Filed Tuesday in district court by Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Inc., the suit aims to get an injunction stopping a state effort to cut Medicaid-related funds to the controversial women's health care provider.
"Unless enjoined, the termination of PPGC's Medicaid provider agreements will take effect on September 2, 2015, immediately disqualifying PPGC from providing basic and preventive health care services to over 5200 Louisiana women and men who depend on that care," reads the lawsuit. more >>
