Trump, Clinton roll out new TV ads

  • 4:46 pm Monday, August 29th, 2016 by Jamie Dupree

With Labor Day almost here – regarded by many as the ‘official’ start of the fall campaign for President – the campaigns of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have rolled out new TV ads this week, both taking sharp jabs at the other.

Trump’s latest ad on the economy basically charges that Clinton will screw things up even more, while Trump would be an economic savior.

Clinton meanwhile is after Trump again on the outsourcing of jobs in the production of his line of clothing, as this ad follows on one that featured David Letterman giving Trump a hard time over [More]

Trump to revisit immigration this week

  • 9:38 pm Sunday, August 28th, 2016 by Jamie Dupree

After a week of at times confusing statements on whether he might shift his plans on how best to deal with illegal immigration, Donald Trump announced Sunday evening that he will be making a major speech this week on what has been one of his signature issues of the 2016 campaign.

In several different interviews, Trump last week sent some conflicting signals to supporters about whether he was going to modify some of his immigration plans:

+ Trump at one point embraced and at other times repudiated Obama Administration efforts on immigration

+ Trump said on Tuesday he was “softening” his immigration approach; [More]

Judge orders September 13 release of Clinton emails

  • 8:06 am Friday, August 26th, 2016 by Jamie Dupree

As Hillary Clinton took aim at Donald Trump during a speech on Thursday in Nevada, there was yet another reminder for her supporters about the continuing legal battles over what was on her private email server from her time as Secretary of State, as a federal judge ordered the release of emails related to the Benghazi attacks.

Earlier in the week, a federal judge here in Washington, D.C. had ordered the State Department to swiftly review nearly 15,000 emails that had been unearthed by the FBI during its investigation of Clinton’s private email server.

This is a separate case from Florida that [More]

Trump walks back on immigration change

  • 8:04 pm Thursday, August 25th, 2016 by Jamie Dupree

A day after he left open the chance of legal status for millions of immigrants in the United States illegally, Donald Trump tried to close the door on that, telling CNN’s Anderson Cooper that he does not support any immediate move to a legal status for law abiding immigrants.

“There’s no path to legalization unless they leave the country,” Trump told CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

“When they come back in, then they can start paying taxes, but there is no path to legalization unless they leave the country and then come back,” Trump said of those in the U.S. illegally.

Clinton says Trump running racist campaign

  • 4:29 pm Thursday, August 25th, 2016 by Jamie Dupree

In her most direct attack yet on Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton accused the Republican nominee for President of running a campaign based on ‘a steady stream of bigotry,’ as she charged the real estate mogul was using ‘discredited conspiracy theories’ to stoke the anger of his supporters.

“From the start, Donald Trump has built his campaign on prejudice and paranoia,” Clinton said.

“This is someone who re-tweets white supremacists,” Clinton told an audience in Reno, Nevada, as she said a “fringe element has effectively taken over Trump’s campaign and the Republican Party.”

“Trump is reinforcing harmful stereotypes and offering a dog whistle to [More]

Trump accuses Clinton of playing racial politics

  • 3:56 pm Thursday, August 25th, 2016 by Jamie Dupree

At a raucous rally in New Hampshire, Donald Trump charged Hillary Clinton and Democrats of wrongly accusing his supporters of being racists, saying his main opponents in the race for President was using an old page from the Democratic Party’s election playbook.

“She lies, she smears, she paints decent Americans – you – as racists,” Trump told his audience, as a day after labeling Clinton a ‘bigot,’ Trump repeated that criticism.

“We reject the bigotry of Hillary Clinton, who sees communities of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future,” Trump said.

“It’s the oldest play in the [More]

Different Trump tries to emerge on stump

  • 8:47 am Thursday, August 25th, 2016 by Jamie Dupree

When Donald Trump’s campaign chief Paul Manafort was forced out of his job last week, many political experts said it foreshadowed a campaign strategy that would “let Trump be Trump.” In other words, it would be Trump on steroids, launching wild attacks at every opportunity.

But instead of a wild-eyed Trump throwing out non-stop verbal barrages at his campaign stops, Trump’s staff have made some subtle, but noticeable changes in his stump speech, making it more direct and to the point and ending his normal tirades against the news media.

“We’re going to sharpen the message,” said Kelly Anne Conway, [More]

Trump opens door to immigration shift

  • 9:17 pm Wednesday, August 24th, 2016 by Jamie Dupree

Continuing what has been a slow motion rollout of his updated plans on immigration reform, Donald Trump said in an interview that he would not grant amnesty to millions of people in the United States illegally, but that those who have been law-abiding would be allowed to stay in the U.S., evidently with some sort of legal residence status that is short of citizenship.

“No citizenship,” Trump told Sean Hannity in a recorded town hall meeting on immigration, adding, “as such, there’s no amnesty.”

But Trump then goes on to tell of how he’s been asked by many people to allow immigrants [More]

Trump stirs GOP over immigration policy

  • 10:22 pm Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016 by Jamie Dupree

After months of tough talk about illegal immigration on the campaign trail, Donald Trump on Tuesday floated the idea of a major change on that politically explosive issue, as Trump made clear he was open to the idea of allowing some of those in the U.S. illegally to avoid deportation, remain in the country, and gain a legal status.

In an interview with Sean Hannity that was taped on Tuesday in Texas, Trump moved away from the idea of deporting the millions of immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally, instead saying that only the “bad” ones would be sent out [More]

Clinton email story not going away

  • 11:16 am Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016 by Jamie Dupree

The front pages of the Washington Post and New York Times on Tuesday were a fresh reminder for Hillary Clinton and her supporters, that despite the refusal of the Justice Department to further pursue questions about her email use as Secretary of State, the issue of her email server and her personal foundation aren’t going away in the 2016 race.

“Donors given access to Clinton,” was the lead headline in the Washington Post, in a story about links between donations to the Clinton Foundation and access to Clinton as Secretary of State, while the New York Times focused on a federal [More]
