    Workers removed the 'TRUMP' lettering from the former president's hotel in Washington D.C. on Wednesday evening as the sale to Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. is finalized and the federally owned old Post Office building will become a Waldorf Astoria. The Trump International Hotel was officially shuttered this week after the Trump Organization reached a $375 million agreement to sell the D.C. property to a Miami-based investor CGI Merchant Group. The deal reached with CGI represents a 25 percent discount from the $500 million the Trump Organization previously sought in 2019 for sale of the property's lease. Hours after the deal officially closed Wednesday, workers descended on the Pennsylvania Avenue location and began taking down signs from the facade of the building. Trump initially boasted that the hotel netted more than $150 million during his presidency, but the Democrat-run House Committee on Oversight and Reform said in October that he actually lost more than $70 million on the hotel during that time – even though the location was a popular spot for lobbyists and right-wing pundits to stay. Workers arrived at...
    A New Jersey school district has started the renaming process of Woodrow Wilson High School, NJ.com reported. The change was first announced in June 2020 by the Camden City School District (CCSD), NJ.com reported. A group of over 100 members, including parents, activists and school administrators, formed the renaming committee.

A 2019 petition on Change.org called on the school to remove former President Woodrow Wilson’s name from the high school’s title and referred to the former president as a “white Supremacist” whose name serves “as a continuous reminder of a true systemic oppression that has not only been foreseen by US as parents but also Now through the eyes of Our Children today.” This picture taken on the opening day of the Conference for Peace on January 19, 1919 shows leaders of the “Big Four” (or Four Nations) David Lloyd George (L), Britain’s Prime Minister, Vittorio Emanuele Orlando (2nd L),...
    A New Jersey high school will remove President Woodrow Wilson from its name over complaints it perpetuates racism.  The Camden School District voted on the decision 18 months ago, but due to COVID-19 priorities, the process to pick a new name had been postponed until now. High contenders to have the school named after them include former President Barack Obama, late civil rights activist and Representative John Lewis, and a superintendent who recently passed away.  Initially, a 100-members committee composed of parents and school officials had been chosen to complete the task, but the district informed that the process will start anew with a 10-person committee, NJ.com reported. Woodrow, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, once governor of New Jersey and the 28th president of the United States, led the country into war to 'make the world safe for democracy.'  However, upon reexamination of his legacy after 2020's summer of racial unrest, he has been heavily criticized for promoting the Klu Klux Klan and Confederacy sentiments, and racially re-segregating the federal civil service.  The school has borne his name since its establishment, 90...
    Tomi Lahren mocked President Joe Biden for his heavy usage of former President Donald Trump’s name during the Virginia State Governor Elections Thursday on Fox News. “I think that President Joe Biden misses President Donald Trump as much as we all do and as much as the American people do and as much as the liberal media does, quite frankly,” Lahren said, “or maybe it’s just that Donald Trump’s name is the only name that Joe Biden can remember at this point.” Fox host and former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said that Biden criticized the effect of Trump’s policies on America, even though, according to McEnany, the nation had “historically low unemployment, higher wages, lower gas prices” during Trump’s tenure. Lahren said that states were better off with Trump’s leadership.

    Trump asked national security aides if the Vietnamese prime minister's name was pronounced like 'Fook You' shortly before their meeting, the ex-US Ambassador to Vietnam's new book claims Donald Trump once asked aides if the Vietnamese prime minister's name was pronounced like 'Fook You' just minutes before meeting with the Southeast Asian leader, a new book excerpt revealed on Tuesday. Former US Ambassador to Vietnam Ted Osius said 'nothing could have prepared [him] for the strangeness' of the ex-president's May 2017 White House meeting with Prime Minister Nguyen Xuân Phúc in a section of his forthcoming book about US-Vietnam relations. Osius only met Trump just before the meeting, he claimed in the excerpt released by Salon. He recounted stepping into a crowded Oval Office where he 'stared at a stiff helmet of orange hair.'

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi mocked the idea of former President Donald Trump running again in 2024 during a Cambridge University event Thursday.

The Speaker talked about the second impeachment of the former president, saying, “Near-term review will show magnificent presentations on the part of our presenters… Impeachment in itself is a penalty.” Even though he wasn’t convicted, she added, he’s “always impeached. Twice.” Pelosi also made a point of saying, “I don’t ever talk about him. I mean, I reference him from time to time with ‘what’s-his-name.'” “If he wants to run again, he’ll be the first president who was impeached twice and defeated twice,”...

    President Donald Trump has a penchant for calling out the names of key supporters at his campaign events, and a Friday rally in Ocala, Florida was no different — but he badly botched the name of one of his most vocal fans in Congress, mixing up Rep. Matt Gaetz’s name with that of Rick Gates, a former Trump aide who pled guilty to crimes related to Russian interference in the 2016 election and pro-Putin efforts in Ukraine. The Florida congressman has been a strong supporter of the president since the 2016 GOP primary. Gaetz’s Twitter profile even includes a Trump quote about him: “He’s a machine…handsome and going places.” Gates, on the other hand, was nowhere near Ocala on Friday. Trump’s former campaign deputy is one of at least six convicted felons associated with the 2016 Trump campaign, having pled guilty for crimes related to assisting former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort with his financial crimes. Gates was sentenced to 45 days in jail, 3 years of probation, a $20,000 fine and 300 hours of community service, a reduced sentence due to...

    Joe Biden is accused of hypocrisy after a 2016 op-ed emerged in which he slammed Republicans for holding up a Supreme Court appointment, stating that it is the 'constitutional duty' of a president to nominate if a vacancy becomes available.   He made the comments in a March 2016 op-ed with the New York Times, in which he added that he was 'surprised and saddened' to hear Republican senators say they would not longer accept a nomination because it was an election year.   His words resurfaced this week after he blasted President Donald Trump for moving to nominate a candidate to fill the vacancy left by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday.  Biden claimed that the nomination should wait until after the election in 44 days.  Trump hit back at Biden Saturday night, calling on the former Vice President to release his own list of potential Supreme Court picks and accusing him of being afraid to alienate voters by releasing the names ahead of November 3.  Scroll down for video   Joe Biden slammed Republicans in 2016 for holding...

    Former President Jimmy Carter has issued a statement in response to the police killing of George Floyd, and the subsequent nationwide protests. But the nation’s 39th President also took a silent swipe at President Donald Trump, and his handling of the protests. “We need a government as good as its people, and we are better than this,” Carter, who is now 95, writes. It is a stern rebuke to the nation’s 45th President, whom Carter does not mention by name. Carter’s comments come in the wake of criticism in the handling of the nationwide protests by former President George W. Bush, who also issued a silent rebuke to President Trump. Bush called for law enforcement to “protect” the protestors and asked: “How do we end systemic racism in our society?” Former President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter say their “hearts are with the victims’ families and all who feel hopeless in the face of pervasive racial discrimination and outright cruelty. We all must shine a spotlight on the immorality of racial discrimination.” On Wednesday former President Barack Obama held a town...
