Donald Trump, 2016's first loser

Donald Trump, loserDonald Trump wakes up Tuesday as a loser. Now, will it matter?

After dominating the Republican race and predicting a win in Monday’s caucuses, Trump looks to New Hampshire with his veneer of invincibility shattered and fresh proof that winning in the polls does not prevent losing when it matters.

Even as his team expressed confidence about next week’s primary, Republican operatives and Trump allies saw what his critics had long predicted — a campaign that was not equipped to capitalize on its candidate’s popularity and momentum. Now they expect polls to tighten in New Hampshire and for the loss to take a psychological toll on supporters of a contender who has sold himself as the ultimate winner.

Oregon occupation goes on

The deeply divided town of Burns, Oregon, braced Monday for possible tension between demonstrators on both sides of an armed occupation of a federal wildlife refuge, days after one of the occupiers was shot dead by state police.

Only four people remain at the refuge after several were arrested or left last week.

Residents angered by the four-week presence of occupiers and their at-times armed supporters, started crowding the streets in front of the Harney County Courthouse late Monday morning, seeking to serve as a counter-protest to a noon (2000 GMT) demonstration called at the courthouse by supporters of the occupation.


White House rejects Donald Trump's offer to build $100 million ballroom

WH rejects 100 m ballroom for WHThe White House confirmed Monday that Donald Trump had offered to spend $100 million on a new White House ballroom, but said the offer was quickly rejected.

"I'm (not) sure it would be appropriate to have a shiny gold 'Trump' sign on any part of the White House," Press Secretary Josh Earnest said. "That's what most of the buildings that he offers to build include, so I'm unclear if something like that would have been required with this offer as well."

"I can tell you that this was not something that was at all seriously considered," Earnest said. He said he could not provide details because "I was not the one who was consulted."
