Trump's Trip Was a Catastrophe for U.S.-Europe Relations
TheAtlantic | David Frum | 05/28/17

Angela Merkel has served formal notice that she will lead the German wandering away from the American alliance.

... The Soviet Union offered to withdraw the troops that then occupied eastern Germany and to end its rule over the occupied zone. Germany would be reunited under a constitution that allowed the country freedom to choose its own social system. Germany would even be allowed to rebuild its military, and all Germans except those convicted of war crimes would regain their political rights. In return, the Allied troops in western Germany would also be withdrawn--and reunited Germany would be forbidden to join the new NATO alliance.

Historians have long debated whether the note represented a genuine offer or a cynical ploy. (Current consensus: ploy.) There's no debate about what happened next. Determined to anchor Germany securely in the Western camp of nations, German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer rebuffed the "Stalin note." West Germany would enter NATO in 1955, build the European Union, and develop as an Atlanticist liberal democracy. ... Read more

Trump's communications director is out as larger shakeup looms
Salon | Daniel Lippman | 05/30/17

Mike Dubke, who was on the job a little over three months, resigned on May 18.

Mike Dubke, President Donald Trump's communications director, has resigned as Trump considers a larger personnel shakeup to confront the growing scandals weighing down his administration. ...

... Dubke, who spoke with POLITICO as he drove into the White House early Tuesday morning, said he expects to go back to Black Rock Group, his communications and public affairs firm. The White House has not announced a successor for Dubke, and it's unclear when exactly his last day will be. Axios first reported the news of his departure. ... Read more

Old World Order Alive But Unwell After Four Months of Trump
Bloomberg | Marc Champion | 05/30/17

Four months into Donald Trump's presidency, the sky has not fallen in on the system of global governance the U.S. did so much to construct since World War II. It is, however, in deep trouble.

Trump has not followed through on pre-election threats to declare the North Atlantic Treaty Organization obsolete, abandon the North American Free Trade Agreement, accept Russia's annexation of Crimea or declare China a currency manipulator. ... Read more

Report: Trump Tells 'Confidants' U.S. Will leave Paris Climate Deal
Reuters & HP | author | 05/27/17

U.S. President Donald Trump has told "confidants," including the head of the Environmental Protection Agency Scott Pruitt, that he plans to leave a landmark international agreement on climate change, Axios news outlet reported on Saturday, citing three sources with direct knowledge.

"I will make my final decision on the Paris Accord next week!" he tweeted on the final day of a Group of Seven (G7) summit in Italy at which he refused to bow to pressure from allies to back the landmark 2015 agreement. The summit of G7 wealthy nations pitted Trump against the leaders of Germany, France, Britain, Italy, Canada and Japan on several issues, with European diplomats frustrated at having to revisit questions they had hoped were long settled. ...

Trump Had Over 20 Chances To Address The Portland Attack On Twitter. He Didn't.
HP | Rebecca Shapiro | 05/29/17

Instead, the president tweeted about "fake news," attacked the media and congratulated Republicans on the congressional win in Montana.

President Donald Trump has been tweeting regularly throughout the weekend, but not once has he mentioned the fatal stabbing in Portland, Oregon, that left two men dead after they confronted a man spewing hatred to two Muslim girls.

On Friday, Ricky John Best and Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche were stabbed to death while traveling on one of Portland's MAX trains. They both stood up to confront a man verbally attacking two girls, one of whom was wearing a hijab.

Police say Jeremy Joseph Christian, 35, who has ties to white supremacist groups, targeted the girls for "religiously and racially motivated reasons." When confronted by Best, Namkai-Meche and a third man, 21-year-old Micah David-Cole Fletcher, Christian violently attacked them with a knife. Fletcher survived the stabbing but remains in the hospital with serious injuries. ... Read more

Ex-CIA Director Slams Jared Kushner's 'Hubris' And 'Ignorance'
HP |Mary Papenfuss | 05/28/17

Former CIA Director Gen. Michael Hayden said the reported plan by chief White House adviser Jared Kushner to arrange secret communications with the Russians during President Donald Trump's transition was "off the map" and like nothing he has seen in his lifetime.

Hayden wants to chalk up the stunning plan to "naivete" rather than evil intentions -- but that's not reassuring, he said in an interview on CNN. "Right now, I'm going with naivete, and that's not particularly comforting for me," he said. "What manner of ignorance, chaos, hubris, suspicion, contempt would you have to have to think that doing this with the Russian ambassador was a good or an appropriate idea?" ... Read more

More information comes out on Manafort, Page, Flynn connections with Russia
Salon | Matthew Rozsa | 05/25/17/span>

After the infamous Steele dossier came out, Paul Manafort reached out to Team Trump

Roughly a week before Trump was inaugurated, former campaign manager Paul Manafort contacted Trump's chief of staff Reince Priebus in order to cast aspersions on a controversial dossier compiled by former MI6 officer Christopher Steele, according to a report by Politico. Although he had kept in touch with the Trump team in the five months since he resigned due to reports of his connections with the Putin-associated politicians in Eastern Europe, and is reported to have talked to Trump himself at least twice during that period, those conversations had been either political or personal in nature.

... In related news, The New York Times reported that American spies learned last summer that senior Russian intelligence and political officials were trying to figure out how to shape Trump's views on Russia using Manafort and Michael Flynn, who was at that time an adviser to Trump and would serve as his national security adviser before resigning in disgrace in February. ...

Six to One Against Trump on Climate in 'Honest' Exchange at G-7
Bloomberg | Arne Delfs | 05/26/17

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Donald Trump was isolated on climate change at the Group of Seven, as the president said he's in no rush to decide whether to scrap U.S. involvement in the Paris Agreement.

A closed-door session on the first day of the G-7 summit in Sicily found unity on stepping up efforts to combat terrorism, but entered stormier waters on trade and on climate, Merkel said. At that stage it was six against one as leaders pressed Trump to hold to U.S. agreements made under the landmark Paris climate accord.

"We made it clear that we want the U.S. to stick to its commitments," Merkel told reporters after the meeting on Friday. "There were very different arguments from us all urging the president to hold to the climate accord." She said the discussion was conducted in a very "honest" atmosphere, leading to a "very intense exchange." ... Read more

John Boehner Says Trump's Presidency Has Been Mostly A 'Disaster'
HP | Sam Levine | 05/26/17

Speaking at an energy conference in Houston on Wednesday, Boehner did praise Trump on foreign affairs and said he had stepped up the fight against the Islamic State militant group. But he generally gave a grim assessment of the president's first few months in office, according to energy publication Rigzone.

"Everything else he's done [in office] has been a complete disaster," Boehner said. "He's still learning how to be president." Boehner, who backed the businessman during the presidential campaign, criticized the Trump's late-night tweets and said he hadn't imagined him becoming commander-in-chief. ... Read more

More Than One in Three Black Students in the South Attend an Intensely Segregated School
MotherJones | Edwin Rios | 05/26/17

More than 60 years after Brown v. Board of Education, the progress made toward dismantling segregated schools in the South, once the most integrated region in the country, seems to be steadily falling apart.

A report released this week by UCLA's Civil Rights Project and Penn State University's Center for Education and Civil Rights finds that in 2014, more than one in three black students attended a school in the South that was intensely racially segregated, meaning a school where 90 percent of students were racial minorities--a 56 percent rise from 1980. The report also finds that the number of Latino students enrolled in public schools in the South surpassed black enrollment for the first time ever, making up 27 percent of the student body. That's significant, as the percentage of Latino students in the South attending an intensely racially segregated school is also on the rise--42 percent in 2014, up from 37 percent in 1980. ...

CBO says GOP healthcare bill would leave 23 million more uninsured, undermine protections for people with preexisting conditions
BuisnessInsider | Bob Bryon | 05/24/17

The Republican healthcare plan has been scored by the CBO. "The Congressional Budget Office on Wednesday released an updated score for the American Health Care Act, the House GOP healthcare bill, that said it could leave millions more uninsured and undermine protections for people with preexisting conditions.

The CBO projected that 23 million more Americans would be uninsured by 2026 compared with the current healthcare system -- slightly lower than the 24 million more Americans it estimated would be uninsured under the previous iteration of the bill.

"Premiums would vary significantly according to health status and the types of benefits provided, and less healthy people would face extremely high premiums," the CBO's report said.

The report, conducted in the wake of two amendments to the bill before it passed the House earlier this month, projected that the AHCA would cut the federal deficit by $119 billion -- $32 billion less than the savings the CBO estimated in March. Read more

The Trump Organization won't track foreign money because it's "impractical"
Salon | Matthew Rozsa | 05/24/17

The Ranking Member of the House Oversight Committee is appalled at the Trump Organization

There is no way of knowing whether President Donald Trump is upholding his promise to donate all foreign profits earned by the Trump Organization back to the American treasury. Why? Because the Trump Organization isn't keeping track of them.

In response to a request by the House Oversight Committee for documents, the Trump Organization provided a pamphlet which argues that "to fully and completely identify all patronage at our Properties by customer type is impractical in the service industry and putting forth a policy that requires all guests to identify themselves would impede upon personal privacy and diminish the guest experience of our brand." ...

Trump and Europe, trading places
Politico | Matthew Kaminski | 05/25/17

When Donald Trump won the American presidency last November, the European establishment slipped from deep funk (over Brexit, terrorism, euro troubles, migration, populism) into full depression. Six months later, the dark jokes about political suicide watches still resonate. They're just not directed at Continental Europeans.

This week, on his first trip abroad, the U.S. President is meeting a changed Continent. The mood has swung -- wildly, some might say manically -- to confidence veering toward giddiness. ... Read more

Mick Mulvaney tries to sell Trump's draconian budget cuts as an act of "compassion" for the rich -- and even Republicans don't buy it
Salon | Sophia Tesfaye | 05/23/17

The White House delivered President Donald Trump's first full budget to Congress on Tuesday, and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) director Mick Mulvaney promptly tried to spin $4.1 trillion in proposed cuts to social services as an act of "compassion" for wealthy taxpayers. Yet Mulvaney, a former South Carolina congressman, apparently has little sway over his old Republican colleagues in the Senate, as many of them came out swinging against Trump's budget proposal only hours later.

"Terrible," is how Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham described Trump's proposed 2018 federal budget to reporters on Capitol Hill on Tuesday. The sales pitch Mulvaney provided at a White House press briefing earlier evidently did little to impress his fellow South Carolina Republican, as Graham went on to blast Trump's proposed 29 percent decrease in funding to the State Department and USAID as "a lot of Benghazis in the making if we actually implemented the State Department cuts." ...

Trump's Alleged Obstruction Of Justice Keeps Getting Worse
WashingtonPost | author | 05/23/17

Trump appears to be handing the FBI new obstruction charges left and right, on silver platters. "President Trump asked two of the nation's top intelligence officials in March to help him push back against an FBI investigation into possible coordination between his campaign and the Russian government, according to current and former officials.

Trump made separate appeals to the director of national intelligence, Daniel Coats, and to Adm. Michael S. Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency, urging them to publicly deny the existence of any evidence of collusion during the 2016 election.

Coats and Rogers refused to comply with the requests, which they both deemed to be inappropriate, according to two current and two former officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private communications with the president. ... Read more
