Trump calls Fed Chairman Jay Powell 'enemy,' compares him to Chinese President Xi

jay Powell called 'enemy' by TrumpPresident Donald Trump significantly ramped up his criticism of Fed Board Chairman Jay Powell on Friday, describing his longtime target on economic issues as an "enemy" and likening him to Chinese President Xi Jinping.

"My only question is, who is our bigger enemy, Jay Powel or Chairman Xi?," Trump wrote, misspelling Powell's name.

Trump has repeatedly blasted the Fed, even before his election. But his long-standing dissatisfaction with the Fed, which he accuses of bungling the U.S. economy, has increased amid concerns over a global economic slowdown. Trump nominated Powell as chairman in 2017.


Acting DHS chief's top aide resigns amid White House tensions: report


Andrew Meehan, a top aide and spokesman to acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, will reportedly leave the department amid friction between it and the White House.

President Trump reportedly is suspicious of McAleenan, who served as deputy commissioner of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) under then-President Obama from 2014 to 2017 before Trump nominated him to head CBP, as well as his inner circle.

"Meehan, who was in Panama in advance of the secretary's visit during the Flores rollout, made the decision to leave government a couple of weeks ago," a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) official told Axios.


Giuliani says State Dept. aided his effort to press Ukraine on Trump opponents

Guiliani got State Ept help to get dirt from UkrainePresident Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani confirmed Thursday that the State Department assisted his efforts to press the Ukrainian government to probe two prominent Democratic opponents of the president: former Vice President Joe Biden and the Democratic National Committee.

Specifically, Giuliani has wanted Ukrainian officials to look into any impropriety related to the former vice president's push to crack down on corruption in Ukraine and his son Hunter Biden's involvement in a natural gas company there. Giuliani also sought to have Ukraine examine whether the Democratic National Committee worked in connection with Ukrainian officials to harm Trump's 2016 campaign by releasing damaging information on the president's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.

Jurors at Greg Craig trial see invoice he backdated for Manafort

Greg Craig trial

Jurors at the trial of Greg Craig saw evidence on Wednesday that the former Obama White House counsel complied with a request from ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort for a backdated and irregular $1.25 million invoice for a politically sensitive project that Craig undertook for the government of Ukraine.

The jury also heard more details about the unusual funding arrangement for the report Craig prepared in 2012 on Ukraine’s prosecution of one of its former prime ministers, Yulia Tymoshenko, on abuse-of-office charges. While the review by Craig’s law firm Skadden Arps was commissioned by Ukraine’s Ministry of Justice, it was secretly funded by a Ukrainian steel magnate, Viktor Pinchuk, who ultimately forked over about $4.1 million for the project.


Trump says administration looking 'seriously' at ending birthright citizenship

Birthright citizenship questioned by TrumpPresident Trump on Wednesday said his administration is once again seriously considering an executive order to end birthright citizenship months after several lawmakers cast doubt on his ability to take such action.

"We're looking at that very seriously," Trump told reporters as he left the White House for Kentucky. "Birthright citizenship, where you have a baby on our land — walk over the border, have a baby, congratulations, the baby's now a U.S. citizen."

"We are looking at birthright citizenship very seriously," he added. "It’s, frankly, ridiculous."

The president proposed ending the practice that grants citizenship to those born in the United States during his 2016 presidential campaign. He revived the idea last year, saying he would sign an executive order to enact the change.


Jewish leaders outraged by Trump saying Jews disloyal if they vote for Democrats

Trump calls Trump  'disloyal' who vote for DemocratsPresident Donald Trump on Tuesday criticized Jewish Americans who vote for Democrats, saying "it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty."

Trump was speaking to the press in the Oval Office about two Democratic congresswomen barred from entering Israel over their involvement in the movement to end international support for the country because of its policies toward Palestinians.
"Five years ago, the concept of even talking about this -- even three years ago -- of cutting off aid to Israel because of two people that hate Israel and hate Jewish people -- I can't believe we're even having this conversation," Trump added. "Where has the Democratic Party gone? Where have they gone where they're defending these two people over the State of Israel?"
