Trump's approval at 34% in new AP/NORC poll

Overall, 34 percent of Americans approve of Trump’s job performance in a survey conducted by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. That’s down from 42 percent a month earlier and nears the lowest mark of his two-year presidency. The president’s approval among Republicans remains close to 80 percent, but his standing with independents is among its lowest points of his time in office.

Sixty percent of Americans say Trump bears a great deal of responsibility for the shutdown. About a third place the same amount of blame on congressional Democrats (31 percent) or Republicans (36 percent).

Sixty-five percent of Americans, including 86 percent of Democrats, 69 percent of independents and 33 percent of Republicans, call the shutdown a major problem.

Trump may be popular overall with Republicans, but a sizable share holds him responsible for the current situation. Almost 3 in 10 Republicans think Trump bears a great deal of responsibility, while 73 percent of his party says he’s at least partly responsible.


Around the globe, Trump's style is inspiring imitators and unleashing dark impulses

“While the global decline in freedom didn’t begin with Donald Trump’s presidency, I do think he has been an accelerant,” said Uzra Zeya, a State Department veteran who resigned last spring following a 25-year career that culminated as the nation’s top Foreign Service officer in Paris.

Viktor Orban, Hungary’s increasingly autocratic leader, said Trump represents “permission” from “the highest position in the world.”

When the Nigerian army opened fire on rock-throwing demonstrators last fall, killing as many as 40 people, it defended itself by citing Trump’s threats to do the same at the Mexican border.

When the U.S. Embassy in Cambodia criticized ruler Hun Sen for cracking down on the opposition and the media, the authoritarian leader pointed out that Trump had his back — not the diplomats’. “Your policy has been changed, but the embassy in Phnom Penh has not changed it yet,” he said, appealing to Trump to rein his embassy in.

And when members of the U.N. Security Council visited Myanmar’s commander in chief in late April to demand explanations for the expulsion of more than 700,000 Rohingya Muslims, he used the phrase “fake news” — the only words he spoke in English — no less than a dozen times, according to people present.


"Do you feel from this experience that you owe anybody an apology? "


"Do you feel from this experience that you owe anybody an apology? Do you see your own fault in any way?”

If Sandmann's PR team told him never to apologize , it was bad advice. He comes off creepy.

School officials: CovCath closed until police say to reopen, investigation to begin this week

The Diocese of Covington and Covington Catholic High School officials provided an updated statement Tuesday regarding the recent controversy surrounding videos showing Covington Catholic students in an encounter with Native Americans at a rally near the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Officials said Covington Police alerted them Monday, telling them they had been made aware of a planned protest at Covington Catholic High School and a vigil at the Diocesan Curia.

Officials said due to threats of violence and the possibility of large crowds Tuesday, the Diocese was advised to close Covington Catholic High School, the Diocesan Curia and neighboring Covington Latin School.

Diocese of Covington and Covington Catholic High School officials said a third-party investigation is planned to start this week into the incident and videos involving Covington Catholic students, Nathan Phillips and Hebrew Israelites.

Advisers to former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz are looking at him running as an independent

Advisers to former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz have been exploring the possibility of launching an independent bid for the White House in 2020, according to two people who have been informed of the discussions.

The entry of a high-profile billionaire Democrat outside the traditional party structure would add an unpredictable dynamic to the increasingly sprawling campaign to deny President Trump a second term.

Trump’s opponents, including many Democratic strategists, have expressed concerns that a serious three-way race in November would divide the Democratic vote in a way that helps Trump win reelection, either directly by denying Democrats states they would otherwise have won or by shifting the ultimate decision to the U.S. House.

Schultz, who has a net worth of about $3.3 billion and describes himself as a “lifelong Democrat,” has not said publicly whether he will mount a presidential campaign and has kept open the option of running as a Democrat. He will begin a national book tour Jan. 28 for a memoir that describes his personal journey “to reimagine the promise of America.”


Why would this lifelong Democrat try to fuck us over? Hopefully, he won't do this.
