    2017, as seen through President Trump’s tweets

    It might be hard to remember now, but presidential Twitter accounts used to be anodyne things, serving up inoffensive sentiments only occasionally written by the chief executive himself.

    Mueller: Paul Manafort has been trying to “violate a court order” while under house arrest

    Joe Biden almost ran for president in 2016, and he’s not ruling out 2020

    Biden’s new book shows how close he came to running, and how the death of his son made him reconsider. In 2015, former Vice President Joe Biden had everything lined up to jump into the Democratic primary for president. He had been laying the groundwork for a presidential campaign since 2013, retaining strategists from the Obama campaign,...

    Trump’s latest tweetstorm called Kim Jong Un “short and fat”

    He also defended better ties with Russia. President Donald Trump has mostly stayed on message during his nearly two-week trip to Asia, focusing on trade and the North Korean nuclear threat.

    New data shows how the Trump administration is destroying the State Department

    Sixty percent of State’s equivalent of four-star generals are gone. Imagine a company where, in the past year, 60 percent of its top management quit and applicants to work there dropped by half. You’d assume that corporation would be on the verge of going bankrupt or in the throes of some catastrophe — Enron after the scandal or...
