WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump’s “America First” slogan morphed into “Me First” as the president unloaded on the U.S. intelligence community and Justice Department to portray himself as the victim of a conspiracy to deny him legitimacy.

  • Opinion: When Did Caging Kids Become the Art of the Deal? NYT Ed (PhatzNewsRoom / NYT Editorial Board)    —    Watching President Trump blame Democrats for his administration’s inhumane practice of snatching immigrant children from their parents at the border evokes nothing so much as an abusive husband blaming his wife for the beatings he delivers: Why do you make me do this? I hate doing this! If you’d only ...
