While there is no modern precedent for an adult child of the president, I will voluntarily follow all of the ethics rules placed on government employees.
To go buy Ivanka's stuff.
Here, Dad, let me hold your cellphone for you.
Most honest people I know are not under FBI investigation, let alone two.
The conversation before was, What is fair to the illegal immigrant?' Are you ripping families apart? Should the DACA kids stay? Should they have driver's licenses? Now, the conversation is also, What's fair to the American worker?' What's fair to the local economy? What's fair to law enforcement? What is fair all the way around?
Candidates had been told after 2012, because Mitt Romney only got 27 percent of the Hispanic vote, that they had to support comprehensive immigration reform. We were telling them, That's not true. Every time I went to a Trump rally, I saw in the faces in the crowd everybody I grew up with.
They wanted labor and they wanted votes.
It's kind of embarrassing! They're like, Blueberry, horsepower, aisle four!' I'm like, Seriously?
You all know Gary from Goldman. Gary Cohn – and we're really happy – just paid $200 million in tax in order to take this job, by the way.
The president receives many different inputs, insights and ideas from a very diverse team of advisers, but it is clear to all that he is the ultimate decision maker. He's the president.
Those who are closest to the people in need will be administering it. You cut out the fraud, waste and abuse, and you get the help directly to them.
Every day, people ask me how I raised such great kids. They are truly amazed when I tell them that there was no magic to their upbringing. I was a tough and loving mother who taught them the value of a dollar, not to lie, cheat or steal, respect for others, and other life lessons that I'll share now in Raising Trump, along with unfiltered personal stories about Don, Eric, and Ivanka from their early childhood to becoming the 'first sons and daughter.
We are immensely proud of our mother and excited for the publication of her new book, Raising Trump. She is an amazing mom, teacher and inspiration to all of us. We are incredibly grateful to have grown up in such a loving and close family.
I was a tough and loving mother who taught them the value of a dollar, not to lie, cheat or steal, respect for others, and other life lessons that I'll share now in 'Raising Trump,' along with unfiltered personal stories about Don, Eric, and Ivanka from their early childhood to becoming the 'first sons and daughter,'.
These controversial endorsements from polarizing figures like Kellyanne Conway, and the tweets from her father about her brand, undoubtedly have caused more damage [than good]. Ivanka may have technically distanced herself from the brand but the optics around her ongoing connection to her father, to include pictures of her in various parts of the White House, reinforce the link and in the end, the brand backlash.
He nailed it, and he knew it.
I think some of the reticence that might be coming across in not a huge chorus of defense of Kellyanne Conway in the face of these sexist comments is the feeling that she doesn't have our back. It's a shame. If women were more united and speaking up at this behavior, including when it's perpetrated by the left, we'd all be a lot better off.
I'm probably the most obviously like [Trump Sr.]. In certain ways, Eric is very similar to him in terms of his love of construction and building. And Don has his sense of humor.
Well, it was alternative information and additional facts. And that got conflated. But, you know, respectfully, Norah, I see mistakes on TV every single day and people just brush them off. Everybody thinks it's just so funny that the wrong … movie was, you know, heralded as the winner of the Oscars. Yeah, just to swallow so much, that the country looks at you through this negative lens, you know corruption and cronyism and 'You're lying' and 'You want money and you're motivated by power.
Has anyone seen the controversy around Kellyanne Conway and the couch in the Oval Office? Come on people. You remember the '90s. That couch has had a whole lot of worse things. Come on now.
Go buy Ivanka's stuff. I own some of it. I fully – I'm going to just, going to give a free commercial here. Go buy it today, everybody. You can find it online.
I was being asked to take a picture in a crowded room with the press behind us, and I was asked to take a certain angle and was doing exactly that. I certainly meant no disrespect. I didn't mean to have my feet on the couch. I'm not a victim at all, but people should take very seriously the import of their words. Especially when they know I meant no disrespect.
It is venomous. It is vicious. It bothers my children to be frank with you.
Adding just one more thing: Suck it, Nordstrom. So, as we come to end of tonight's address to Congress, I think we can all agree on one thing – one down, seven to go. There's a quicker way to say that entire sentence. She just lied.
Honestly, I don't know what we inherited. You inherited like, $100 million. O.K.? Let's be honest. Maybe even rebuild it 10 times, if we had people who refused to pay their contractors. Nonessential federal workers – so Kellyanne Conway is out? People who believe that Donald Trump is an existential threat to this nation, to the experiment of democracy, to Western civilization itself, take heart, because for their powerful rebuttal, the Democrats showed a rerun of 'The Andy Griffith Show.
It's difficult for me to call myself a feminist in a classic sense because it seems to be very anti-male, and it certainly is very pro-abortion, and I'm neither anti-male or pro-abortion.
Nordstrom ends is fiscal year as a company of two halves: the mainstream business, which is struggling to grow; and the off-price business which, overall, is motoring along nicely.
The process was good here. While there are substantial red-actions, it appears that Kushner and his wife Ivanka Trump had holdings that created the conflicts for Kushner in doing his job. They have divested themselves of those holdings, a sensible approach. It is shocking that the father-in-law did not choose to follow his son in law's example. Now the courts will have their say.
Our press secretary gave alternative facts.
"That's one characterization,". "But the fact is that General Flynn continued in that position and was in the presidential daily briefings, was part of the leader calls as recently as [Monday] … and as time wore on, obviously the situation had become unsustainable.".
Executive branch officials should use the authority entrusted to them for the benefit of the American people and not for private profit. These facts, if true, would represent a clear violation of the prohibition against misuse of position. Therefore, I recommend that the White House investigate Ms. Conway's actions and consider taking disciplinary action against her.
"The situation became unsustainable.". "Misleading the vice president really was the key here.".
By night's end, Mike Flynn had decided it was best to resign. He knew he'd become a lightning rod, and he made that decision. As time wore on, obviously the situation became unsustainable. We're moving on.
No, not at all. Both were true. The president is very loyal. He's a very loyal person. And by night's end, Mike Flynn had decided it was best to resign. He knew he had become a lightning rod and he made that decision. That's one characterization. But the fact is that General Flynn continued in that position and was in the presidential daily briefings, was part of the leader calls as recently as [Monday] … and as time wore on, obviously the situation had become unsustainable. We're moving on.
That fact is what became unsustainable. I think misleading the vice president was really the key here.
''The president is very loyal. He's a very loyal person,''. ''And by nighttime, Mike Flynn had decided it was best to resign. He knew he became a lightning rod, and he made that decision.''.
The key here is the misleading of the vice president and others – the incomplete information or the inability to completely recall what did or did not happen as reflected in his debriefing of particular phone calls. Remember, in the end, it was misleading the vice president that made the situation unsustainable. In this case, it is the misleading to the vice president and also the inability to remember, as General Flynn started to clarify his remarks and say, I can't remember. I can't recall.
I won't reveal that. That's a conversation between the Vice President and him.
Yes, Gen. Flynn does enjoy the full confidence of the president.
I am fine, but actually I only have three lives left.
I'm OK, but I only have three lives left.
As part of the company's initiative to optimize its online product assortment, we constantly refine that assortment to focus on our most profitable items. Amid that streamlining effort, 31 Trump Home items were among the items removed online this week. Products from the line are still offered online via third-party Marketplace vendors. Neither Sears nor Kmart carries the line in brick-and-mortar stores.
If there is a political blow back they will survive it given where there stores are.
We have not and will not share specific sales results numbers related to this brand or any other brand.
"She has been counseled on that subject, and that's it."
They (Nordstrom) are using her, who's been a champion for women's empowerment and women in the workplace, to get to him. So I think people can see through that. Go buy Ivanka's stuff, (is) what I'd say. I hate shopping, I'm going to get some myself today. It's a wonderful line. I own some of it. I'm going to just, I'm going to give a free commercial here. Go buy it today everybody. You can find it online.
"The statute provides a president ... with great latitude and authority to protect the citizens and to protect the nation's national security,". "This was not argued on the merits. Now that we'll have an opportunity to argue on the merits we look forward to doing that. We look forward to prevailing.".

U.S. companies with high effective tax rates and high domestic revenue exposure will disproportionately benefit from a reduction in tax rates.
Stocks with the highest effective tax rates will be the clearest beneficiaries of any potential tax reform.
"Go buy Ivanka's stuff, is what I would tell you. I'm going to. I hate shopping and I'm going to go get some myself today,"
He's been a champion for women's empowerment, women in the workplace.
There are certain types of internet content that advertisers don't regard as brand-safe. In the case of Twitter, with the abuse, with the vitriol that's on it, there's a lot of brands that just don't want to be associated with that sort of content.
Can you imagine Nordstrom running a campaign on Twitter, pre-buying it or planning it ... and finding out that the president is slating them on the same platform?
I think whatever your political views, it's clear that Trump is extremely divisive, and this isn't really a positive for advertisers, speaking ahead of Twitter's earnings report. This is not a platform that advertisers will want to, in advance, associate themselves with.
Go buy Ivanka's stuff. I own some of it. I fully, I'm gonna just going to give a free commercial here. Go buy it today everybody. You can find it online.
The judge has been misrepresented. Blumenthal has had a credibility problem.
"The implicit threat was that he will use whatever authority he has to retaliate against Nordstrom, or anyone who crosses his interest,". "A government employee, even a president, is allowed to tweet in his personal capacity.".
Richard Painter, the former chief ethics lawyer in the Bush administration, weighed in, too, saying the tweet was 'absolutely unacceptable., This is misuse of public office for private gains,' he said. And it is abuse of power because the official message is clear – Nordstrom is persona non grata with the Administration.
"I don't want to ever call a court biased, so I won't and we haven't had a decision yet, but courts seem to be so political and it would be so great for our justice system if they would read a statement to do what's right". "My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person -- always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!".
This is a shot across the bow to everybody who is doing business with Mr Trump or his family. It's warning them: Don't withdraw their business.
"Well, I think there's clearly a targeting of her brand and it's her name still out there, so she's not directly running the company, but it's still her name on it and there's clearly efforts to undermine that name based on her father's positions on particular policies that he's taken . This is a direct attack on his policies and her name."
He has every right to stand up for his family and applaud their business activities, their success. So, look, when it comes to his family I think he's been very clear how proud he is of what they do and what they've accomplished. And for someone to take out their concern with his policies on a family member of his is just, is not acceptable. And the president has every right, as a father, to stand up for them. And there's clearly efforts that – to undermine that name based on her father's positions on particular policies, that he's taken.
It is clearly hard for Nordstrom to tell the story that it is dropping (the brand) for business reasons.
It is the use of public office for private gain.
My Daughter Has Been Treated So Unfairly. My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person – always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!
The implicit threat was that he will use whatever authority he has to retaliate against Nordstrom, or anyone who crosses his interest. A government employee, even a president, is allowed to tweet in his personal capacity.
I think this was less about his family's business than an attack on his daughter.
I think they all have probably been looking closely at Ivanka's sales numbers and weighing whether they're worth all the problems she's brought them.
What we are seeing is that we are living in a world with a different kind of chief executive in the White House. He has a strong opinion on issues. We are learning to work in the environment.
Honest mistakes abound.
Honest mistakes abound. Most people don't know that because it didn't get covered.
We believe that the strength of a brand is measured not only by the profits it generates, but the integrity it maintains. The women behind the brand represent a diverse group of professionals and we are proud to say that the Ivanka Trump brand continues to embody the principles upon which it was founded. It is a company built to inspire women with solution-oriented offerings, created to celebrate and service the many aspects of their lives.
Retailers around the country are going to say, do we need the aggravation or not. It's hard to imagine that if a brand is really, really doing well, a retailer like a Nordstrom or Neiman Marcus would cut off their nose to spite their face.
I bet it's brand-new information to people that President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized, and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green Massacre. Most people don't know that because it didn't get covered. You're saying it's a falsehood, and they're giving -- our press secretary, Sean Spicer, gave alternative facts to that. But the point really is.
"Most people don't know, because it didn't get covered"
I am absolutely thrilled, and I know the vast majority of Grab Your Wallet participants will be as well. If people don't buy it, we won't sell it.
The brand is vulnerable. Retailers view their role as having the right products for the right consumer, not being pulled in a political situation.
In our work with asylum seekers, we bear witness to unacceptable accommodation, including mothers who have had to take new born babies back to dirty and infested flats, leading to anguish, distress and possible health consequences. Where we hear about such terrible conditions, we share that intelligence with the Home Office and have been clear that action needs to be taken.
Only 109 people out of 325,000 were detained and held for questioning. Big problems at airports were caused by Delta computer outage,... Protesters and the tears of Senator Schumer. Secretary Kelly said that all is going well with very few problems. MAKE AMERICA SAFE AGAIN.
There is nothing nice about searching for terrorists before they can enter our country. This was a big part of my campaign. Study the world!
