    Obama sparked a tidal wave of change in Cuba. Trump’s new policy misses the point


    ... Tump talked tough, saying that “we now hold the cards” in the relationship with Cuba, but he may have just traded those cards away. His speech was tough, demanding free elections and the return of American fugitives, but his actual changes are just partial restrictions and minor retrenchments — a nothingburger, compared to what Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and other hardline Cuban-American voices had requested ...

    Obama sparked a tidal wave of change in Cuba. Trump’s new policy misses the point.

    Two years of Obama’s engagement did more to pry Cuba out of its shell than anything else. Engagement worked exactly because the Castro dictatorship gives no one their rights.

    I'm starting to suspect that Donald Trump may not have been right when he said, “You know, I’m like a smart person.” The evidence continues to mount that he is far from smart — so far, in fact, that he may not be capable of carrying out his duties as president ...

    Trump is about to break a major campaign promise
    He said he would lower drug prices. But he’s embracing Big Pharma’s wishlist instead


    During his campaign for president, Donald Trump sounded a lot like Bernie Sanders on one policy issue: He promised to implement sweeping government reform to lower drug prices and called Big Pharma executives “disgusting” for profiting off life-saving medication.

    It was a campaign pledge that earned Trump some praise for his apparent populism. But it’s not one that Trump seems prepared to keep ...

    Trump details how he’s profiting off the presidency
    The president’s financial disclosure forms show where his profits have been boosted since he ran for office


    New financial disclosure forms provide insight into where and how Donald Trump has reaped profits since he launched his bid for the presidency.

    The 98-page filing with the Office of Government Ethics, released on Friday afternoon, provides an incomplete snapshot of Trump’s financial picture, but since Trump has broken presidential precedent by refusing to release his taxes, it’s the closest look into his investments the public has gotten so far ...
