"President Donald Trump’s approval rating slipped to a new low Monday in the Gallup daily tracking poll, the first measure of Trump’s job performance following his administration’s failure to move a new health care law through Congress.

Only 36 percent of Americans approve of the way Trump is handling his job as president in interviews conducted last Friday through Sunday, a time period entirely after Republicans abandoned their bill to replace the 2010 Affordable Care Act."

"In the new survey, the percentage of Americans who disapprove of Trump’s performance is 57 percent, up from 54 percent in the previous three-day rolling sample. That’s one point shy of Trump’s highest disapproval rating: 58 percent in the March 16-18 sample."

"The head of the largest private coal firm in the U.S. says President Trump won’t be able to bring back coal industry jobs despite a push this week to deregulate fossil fuels.

Robert Murray, the founder and CEO of Murray Energy, said Trump should “temper his expectations,” given the way market forces — rather than regulations — have hurt the coal industry and reduced employment.

“I suggested that he temper his expectations,” Murray told The Guardian. “Those are my exact words. He can’t bring them back.”

But but but. ... clean coal! And stuff!

If the coal jobs don't come back Donald will be forced to sally forth on Twitter and engage the twin windmills of automation and progress. He will rain down such a tweet lashing on them. Not my fault folks. It's that damn progress. Make America 1946 again!

"A U.S. government watchdog has agreed to review how classified information is kept secure at President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, the agency said on Monday, after Democratic lawmakers raised concerns about the issue last month.

The Government Accountability Office's review will examine whether Secret Service agents subject Mar-a-Lago guests to any security screening, and evaluate the expenses incurred by government employees who travel with Trump to Mar-a-Lago, according to a letter the agency sent the lawmakers on Friday.

The GAO will also check whether Trump has made any payments to the U.S. Treasury from profits at his hotels, the letter said. Trump's lawyer pledged at a Jan. 11 news conference to donate Trump Hotel profits from foreign governments to the Treasury."

"Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity is calling on CBS News to release the full tape of his interview with Ted Koppel for "Sunday Morning," in which the veteran "Nightline" anchor answered "yes" when Hannity asked if Koppel thought he was bad for America.

The exchange between two different generations of television news personalities continued to resonate Monday: It was the lead "hot topic" that hosts of "The View" kicked around on their talk show."

"Koppel said he lumped Hannity in with other opinion shows and that while he thought Hannity was "very good at what you do," his audience feels ideology is more important than facts."

"Hannity, in a series of tweets, criticized the report as "fake edited news. I did about a 45-minute interview with CBS. They ran less than two. Why did Ted cut out my many examples of media bias?" He called on CBS to release the unedited interview so people could see the "games" being played by editors.

Hannity didn't indicate that his words were edited to make them appear misleading; he just seemed upset that so much got left on the cutting-room floor."

"Koppel has expressed similar opinions before. In an appearance on Fox's "The O'Reilly Factor" last year, Koppel told host Bill O'Reilly that he had changed the television landscape by taking news from being objective and dull to subjective and entertaining. When O'Reilly said that Koppel believed that "people like me have ruined the country," the former ABC newsman answered, "That's right."

"President Trump and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan both want to rewrite the tax code, but their proposals differ on how much tax relief to give the middle class.
 
Trump wants a tax cut across the board, according to the plan he published during the campaign. He has proposed relief for the wealthy especially, but also for less affluent households. The plan that Ryan (R-Wis.) and his colleagues in the House have put forward would not substantially reduce taxes for the middle class, and many households would pay more.

"Ryan's plan would instead simplify and streamline the tax code in accordance with conservative orthodoxy, eliminating the goodies for households with modest incomes that Trump would preserve or expand.
 
In all, taxpayers with roughly average incomes could expect a tax cut of around $1,100 a year under Trump's plan, compared to just $60 under Ryan's plan once the proposals were fully implemented."

"During the campaign, Trump proposed a plan that would have reduced taxes drastically, especially for the wealthy but also for the poor and working class. Meanwhile, Ryan and his colleagues put together a plan that was equally generous to the rich but that would give poor and middle-class taxpayers less of a break. The speaker's plan would even have increased taxes on some in the upper middle class.
 
After a decade, 99.6 percent of the tax relief Ryan proposed would have accrued to the wealthiest 1 percent of the country. In Trump's plan, 50.8 percent of the relief would have gone to that group, according to analyses by the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center."

What the heck is going? No juicy Trump tweets this morning?? He's slipping.

He waited until tonight and he must be getting nervous:

"President Donald Trump re-upped his complaints about former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's ties to Russia in a set of tweets Monday night.

On Twitter, Trump wrote: "Why isn't the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia, Russian speech...."

About 10 minutes later, the President completed the message, writing, "...money to Bill, the Hillary Russian 'reset,' praise of Russia by Hillary, or Podesta Russian Company. Trump Russia story is a hoax. #MAGA!"

"The evening Twitter references recalled a Clinton controversy documented in The New York Times two years ago. Trump's campaign made the same claim last fall when he was competing against Clinton to become president.

Nick Merrill, a former Clinton campaign spokesman, immediately refuted Trump on Twitter and linked to a fact-checking website."

"Trump followed his Clinton tweets with one disparaging the House Freedom Caucus, and another pledging the Democrats would work with him on health care after the imminent collapse he expects Obamacare to have, adding "We are in very good shape!"

"The State Department under Clinton was one of several agencies that signed off on a deal that included the Russian atomic energy agency. During the period of the deal, a Russian investment bank tied to the deal paid Bill Clinton for a speech and the Canadian chairman of the entity being sold to Russia moved funding to the Clinton Foundation.

Former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta had been a member of the board of a Russian energy company."

http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/27/politics/donald-trump-hillary-clinton-house-intelligence/index.html

Fact check:

"A False ‘Corruption’ Claim"

"In a TV ad, Donald Trump falsely claims that Hillary Clinton “handed over American uranium rights to the Russians” as part of a “pay-to-play” scheme to get “filthy rich.” Clinton did not have the authority to unilaterally approve that deal.

As secretary of state, Clinton was one of nine voting members of the foreign investment committee in 2010 that approved the uranium deal, which was then approved by the president and passed through the Nuclear Regulatory Commission."

"the Clintons didn’t pocket money that was donated to the nonprofit Clinton Foundation, set up by Bill Clinton after his time as president. Instead, they made their money outside of office by giving speeches and writing books".

"the idea that Clinton could have “handed over” uranium rights, even if she wanted to, isn’t supported by the facts."

"The donations from those with ties to Uranium One weren’t publicly disclosed by the Clinton Foundation, even though then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had an agreement with the White House that the foundation would disclose all contributors. Days after the Times story, the foundation acknowledged that it “made mistakes,” saying it had disclosed donations from a Canadian charity, for instance, but not the donors to that charity who were associated with the uranium company."

"The ad’s support doesn’t back up the claims that Clinton “cut deals for donors” or “sold out American workers.” And it’s simply false to claim she “handed over American uranium rights to the Russians.”

"Stocks in the United States are sinking as the market loses confidence in Washington’s ability to deliver on President Trump’s campaign promises.

Wall Street’s core stock indices hit their lowest levels in six weeks Monday morning, according to Reuters, the first full day of trading since Republicans abandoned a bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

Wall Street Journal reports that the Dow Jones Industrial Average is on track to have its longest losing streak since 2011."

"Trump and his aides tried to take credit for the stock boom, claiming businesses know his agenda would create jobs and boost economic growth. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said that the market was “absolutely” a report card for the administration’s economic policy."

"The stock downfall has also forced the Trump administration to walk back its previous efforts to tie itself to the market boom. White House press secretary Sean Spicer said last week that stock success was only one of many metrics for economic success."

It is just really astounding how much Ryan, the moneyed masters he serves, and the wingnut movement he champions, hate the lower and middle classes and want to damage and impoverish them more and more each day while making the rich ever richer. This is your modern Republican party.

Under Ryan's plan, 99% of tax-paying Americans would share 0.4% of tax cuts. Unbelievable!

From 2015, "Paul Ryan's contempt for the middle class is sociopathic | Editorial"

"it's easy to recall that compassion has never been an attribute to which Paul Ryan is linked. The new Speaker has largely been identified by the budgets he has authored, jaw-dropping documents so brazen they would make kleptocrats blush.

The Wisconsin Republican fears that government programs are "a hammock that ends up lulling people into lives of dependency and complacency" even though he and his family received Social Security survivor's benefits throughout adolescence, or right around the time his mind was blown by Atlas Shrugged.

That's not likely to change: He leads a caucus that routinely rails about the welfare state and the pending fiscal apocalypse, and whose idea of a bold deficit-reduction plan almost always includes the defunding of social ills such as school lunches, hospice, and Sesame Street."

"One of Ryan's budgets proposed a decrease in the top tax rate from 35 to 25 percent - a change that would have cost the government $4 trillion over a decade - and failed to identify the big tax deductions he said he would eliminate to fill the revenue crater.

The rest was an attack on the most vulnerable, with two-thirds of the cuts imposed on means-tested programs serving the middle class and the poor."
