    President Joe Biden said on Monday that he feels good about Emmanuel Macron's victory in the French presidential election and that he tried to call him but Macron was too busy 'having a good time' at the Eiffel Tower to talk.  'I feel good about the French election,' Biden told reporters at Joint Base Andrews on his way back to the White House after a weekend in Wilmington, Del.  He said he tried to talk to Macron on Sunday night, after Macron was declared the winner over conservative challenger Marine Le Pen. 'I tried to talk to him last night. I spoke to his staff and he was at the Eiffel Tower having a good time. And I'm going to be talking to him today,' he said. Macron celebrated his win with his wife Brigitte Macron at the Champ de Mars near the Eiffel Tower on Sunday night.  He gave his victory speech against the backdrop of the Eiffel Tower and a projection of the blue-white-and-red tri-colour French flag. Several hundred supporters cheered him on and waved French and EU flags. French...
    White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain hit back at MSNBC’s Jonathan Lemire Tuesday for saying the administration has been wanting to “turn the page” on the pandemic, after it was announced that Press Secretary Jen Psaki has tested positive for covid a second time.” “As much as the Biden administration wants to turn the page on COVID, this is the third time the virus has touched the West Wing in just over a week. And as cases surge in Europe, they are beginning to rise in the U.S. too – with growing fears of a new wave in a matter of weeks,” tweeted Lemire, who is also Politico’s White House bureau chief.

    The Biden Administration says it will start sending out at-home covid tests from a new government web site on Wednesday – but with a delivery window that could last longer than a typical case of covid. The administration has contracted for more than 420 million home tests kits, a senior administration official told reporters on a press call Friday. The tests will be free to the American public, with each household able to order up to four of them.   But with current wait times, it will take between 7 and 12 days for shipment within the continental, the official said. The U.S. Postal Service will be providing first class package delivery. 'We anticipate that that window will shorten as we get further along in this program,' said the official. Alaska, Hawaii, and U.S. territories may have to wait longer for 'priority mail' delivery.' Those wait times may prove longer than some Americans are used to. A quick online search Friday revealed that Amazon.com could deliver a lawnmower by Monday, a holiday. Even in-demand at-home covid tests were available for delivery...
    Nancy Pelosi is planning to run for reelection next year and has not ruled out attempting to keep her leadership role after the 2022 midterms, as Democrats prepare for elections that could see them lose their grip on Congress. It means House Speaker Pelosi, 81, is looking for her 18th full term. Sources also told CNN she may yet seek to remain the top Democrat in the House after 2022, despite previously promising to step aside from a role that has seen her elevated to a hate figure for much of the right. And it would mean running for reelection at the age of 82  She plans to devote much of next year to raising money for Democrats as they try to hold on to their slim majority in the House, according to three sources.  But letting it be known she plans to file and run again in her San Francisco district means she staves off being labelled a lame duck speaker undercutting her fundraising push.  'Running, winning, and stepping aside at the appropriate time keeps her powder dry, avoids...
    Newsmax host Greg Kelly told viewers that the death and funeral of former Sen. Bob Dole (R-KS) made for convenient timing for President Joe Biden and the media. Biden delivered a eulogy Dole on Friday, saying, “I found Bob to be a man of principle, pragmatism, and enormous integrity.” Kelly pointed to data released on Friday indicating that inflation rose 6.8% in November over the previous year, a 39-year high. “It is a big, big deal, but if you watched mainstream media’s coverage of all this, no, none of this is to be worried about,” said Kelly. He played a series of cable news clips that played up the more favorable aspects of the economy, such as high demand for goods and services, as well as decreasing gas prices. Kelly declared the economy actually shows “bad news all around.” “So what do we do, mainstream media?” he said. “Celebrate the life of Bob Dole.” He continued, I’m sorry, sad. Great life, great American life, but for the media and for Joe Biden, it could not have come at a better time...
    There are no plans for President Joe Biden to visit Waukesha, Wis., after the Christmas parade attack earlier this month that killed six people, according to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.    'Obviously any president going to visit a community requires a lot of assets ... requires taking their resources,' she said after being asked during her regular briefing on Monday why he had not yet visited. 'And it's not something that I have a trip to preview at this point in time, but we remain in touch with local officials.'  A vigil was held in Waukesha on Sunday afternoon to mark a week since an S.U.V. plowed into a Christmas parade. Darrell Brooks, 39, has been charged with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide, a charge that carries a mandatory life sentence if convicted.  More charges are expected to follow. Investigators have yet to reveal a motive. White House Press Secretary said she had nothing to announce about any trips when asked why President Joe Biden had not visited Waukesha, Wisconsin 'Obviously any president going to visit a community requires...
    President Joe Biden sought to reassure Americans about rising gas prices, supply chain issues, and the availability of holiday presents – but didn't take questions from White House reporters as he prepared to leave Washington for Thanksgiving Tuesday. Biden once again sought to speak to reassure Americans who are focused on inflation or worried about the state of the economy – referencing mothers and fathers who are 'asking will there be enough food we can afford to buy for the holidays. Will we be able to get Christmas presents to the kids on time and if so, will they cost me an arm and a leg?' He made sure to show he is in tune to concerns about gas prices – including on the West Coast where they face high taxes. 'Right now, I will do what needs to be done to reduce the price you pay at the pump,' he said, touting a new action to release 50 million gallons from a strategic petroleum reserve.

    Transportation Pete Buttigieg defended his own paternity leave Monday as he pitched the new $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill headed to President Biden's desk as he said the White House would 'continue to fight' for family leave legislation. His defense of family leave came even as a group of Democratic moderates pledged to back a White House framework agreement 'in its current form other than technical changes' – meaning without family leave provisions that are a priority for progressive lawmakers. 'The president put forward a framework that he's confident can pass the House and the Senate,' Buttigieg told reporters at the White House Monday. 'I think it's also no secret how I feel about family leave and how the president does, which is why ... he campaigned on it and we will continue to fight for it.  Then he defended providing time for leave for the birth of a child or to care for a family member – after he took time after he and husband Chasten adopted twins. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg speaks to the news media during a...
    President Biden delivered his plans for cutting carbon emissions with a dose of hot air on Monday, as organizers of a global climate summit 'gonged' him for blasting past his allotted three minutes. The famously talkative president pushed the benefits of a green economy saying the U.S. would lead by example.   Ignoring the audible warnings, he said the 'eyes of history' were on the delegates and unveiled a detailed plan to cut emissions on the path to a net zero carbon economy by 2050. It will demonstrate to the world, he said, 'the United States is not only back at the table, but hopefully leading by the power of our example.  'I know it hasn't been the case. And that's why my administration is working overtime to show that our Climate Commitment is action, not words.' World leaders were told to stick to three minutes for their speeches by organizers. Transgressors were reminded of the limit by a gong ringing out every minute once their time was up. Eight times it sounded for Biden. The warning made little difference and...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki defended on Friday President Joe Biden’s no-show at the southern border, informing reporters that Biden did, in fact, visit the border while on the campaign trail in 2008. “Why did President Biden say he has been to the border?” Fox News’ Senior White House Correspondent Peter Doocy asked, referring to Biden’s CNN Townhall Thursday night. “Well, Peter, as you may have seen, there’s been reporting that he did drive through the border when he was on the campaign trail in 2008, and he is certainly familiar with the fact, and it stuck with him, the fact that in El Paso the border goes right through the center of town,” Psaki replied. “But the most important thing everyone should know and understand is that the president has worked on these issues throughout his entire career and is well versed in every aspect of our immigration system, including the border.” DOOCY: “Why did President Biden say he has been to the border?” Psaki: “There’s been reporting that he did drive through the border when he was...

    The crisis at the southern border is making headlines once again. With it, it’s bringing along newfound criticism of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. The last time the media was focused on the border crisis as a primary issue facing America, earlier this year, much of the talk was about Harris. She had been named Biden’s “Border Czar” and had to be pressured by Republicans and their conservative allies into actually visiting the border. This time around, though, Biden himself is drawing much more of the fire.
    AS the first lady, the president's wife is often seen by her husband's side at official events in the US and for diplomatic trips around the world. But with the role not officially defined it has often been down to each individual woman as to how she navigates being FLOTUS. 6Jill Biden will be back in the classroom at Northern Virginia Community College this weekCredit: AFP 6Melania's first major effort, the Be Best campaign, was a children’s program to focus on child well-being, social media use and drug abuseCredit: AP For current first lady Jill Biden that means combining being first lady with her job as a teacher.

    Tony Blair today took a swipe at Joe Biden as he said the US withdrawal from Afghanistan will embolden the West's enemies and give them a 'belief our time is over'.  The former prime minister said 'it is clear now' the US has decided that for the 'foreseeable future' it has a 'very limited appetite for military engagement'. Mr Blair suggested Europe and NATO should therefore 'develop the capability to act' when the US is 'unwilling'.  He suggested the US and the West more widely now seems to be focused on 'short term political imperatives' which have 'squeezed the space' for 'long term thinking'.  The apparent retreat from the world stage 'gives our allies anxiety and our opponents a belief our time is over'.  Tony Blair today took a swipe at Joe Biden as he said the US withdrawal from Afghanistan will embolden the West's enemies and give them a 'belief our time is over'  The former prime minister said 'it is clear now' that the US under Mr Biden has decided that for the 'foreseeable future' it...
    Representative Peter Meijer said on Wednesday that it's 'laughable' he would get criticism for secretly traveling to Afghanistan, claiming Joe Biden is trying to hide the reality of the situation from Americans. 'The opprobrium from the Defense Department, from the White House, from the State Department is, frankly, laughable,' the Republican congressman told Fox News of pushback over the secret trip from President Joe Biden's administration. 'Right now they have done everything they can to obstruct the situation, to deny this reality, and, frankly, to hide facts from the American people,' Meijer, who represents Michigan's 3rd district and Iraq War veteran, said. 'I'll be honest, I did not support the decision to end our operations on August 31st before I went,' he continued. 'After talking with commanders on the ground, I trusted their judgment. And I believed it. That is what I want to take back to my fellow members of Congress. Those are the stories that I want to tell that aren't being told of the individuals on the ground who are committing some of the most heroic acts...
    Donald Trump was met with a round of boos Saturday night after he encouraged his supporters to get vaccinated against COVID-19. The former president was hosting a rally Save America rally in Cullman, Alabama when he touted the benefit of the shot, saying vaccines are 'good'. 'I believe totally in your freedoms, I do, you've got to do what you've got to do. But I recommend that you take the vaccines,' Trump said to the crowd, who replied with jeers. 'You've got your freedoms,' he responded. 'But I happened to take the vaccine.'

    Donald Trump has blasted Joe Biden over the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan and accused him of giving the US military away to the Taliban as he appeared at a rally for thousands of supporters in Cullman, Alabama. 'This will go down as one of the greatest military defeats of all time,' Trump said. Trump called the situation in Afghanistan a humiliation, claiming it's not a withdrawal but rather 'a total surrender'. The former President told the massive crowd gathered in the deep red state that 'this would have never happened if I was president.' He said: The issue here is not whether to leave Afghanistan, the issue is Joe Biden's staggering incompetence and gross negligence. Creating the greatest strategic humiliation that we've ever seen as a country.   'With me in office the Taliban would not have ever dreamt of capturing our airfield or parading around with our American weapons. 'There would have been no emergency Embassy evacuation and no taking down of our flag. Because we would have established clear lines that the Taliban would never have dared to cross....
    Former President Trump will say, 'it's time for real leadership in the White House,' at a rally in Alabama this evening, according to a top ally who said it was a clearest signal yet that he is planning to run for the presidency in 2024. Trump has spent the past week attacking President Biden's handling of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. And when he appears in front of thousands of fans in Cullman County he is expected to develop those attacks to ask whether Americans can be safe anywhere in the world with Biden in the White House, said the ally who has seen drafts of the speech. 'I'm expecting to hear the president use the line: 'It's time for real leadership in the White House,' he said. 'And even though aides say there is no final announcement, no final decision it still is the clearest indicator that he's likely to run in 2024.'  Former President Trump has been in out of New York - pictured here as he left Trump Tower in Manhattan on Monday - as he...
