Pundits have been speculating about the state of Sen. Kamala Harris's campaign ever since one of her staffers accidentally left an internal briefing memo that included the phrase “summer slump” at a Manchester, N.H., restaurant earlier this month.
Hillary Clinton says Bernie Sanders’s reluctance to quickly endorse her following the 2016 Democratic primary was disrespectful, hurtful and stood in stark contrast to the way she handled her primary loss to Barack Obama in 2008.
The book is weeks away, but the title and cover of the candidate’s campaign memoir have already been found wanting by detractors.
President Trump’s former campaign manager says the reported tension among some White House communications staffers in recent days, highlighted by the resignation of communications director Mike Dubke, doesn’t surprise him.

Hillary Clinton’s former campaign staffers are are speaking out in the wake of the New York Times’ explosive report that members of President Trump’s campaign staff were in regular contact with Russian officials during the year leading up to the 2016 presidential election. “Everything we suspected during this campaign is proving true,” former Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon tweeted. The NYT story directly contradicts Trump and his staff who repeatedly said no contact occured between his campaign and Russian officials.
Former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta says the Democratic nominee and her staff “bear responsibility for the outcome” of the 2016 presidential election. “I think he had a big effect on this election,” Podesta said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday in his first interview since Clinton’s loss.
In the closing days of the 2016 election campaign, hackers believed to be working for Russian intelligence launched a new wave of attacks on Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee — a previously unreported cyberoffensive that heightened concerns, now endorsed by the CIA, that the Russian government was seeking to influence the outcome of the election in favor of Donald Trump, according to sources familiar with the investigations into the attempted intrusions. The attacks came in the form of so-called “phishing” emails sent to nearly a dozen campaign and committee staffers in a renewed effort at penetrating their networks, said Dmitri Alperovitch, the co-founder and chief technology officer of CrowdStrike, the cybersecurity firm hired by the DNC to repel attacks on its network.
Megyn Kelly says that Fox News contacted Donald Trump’s campaign after she received death threats from Trump supporters following their clash during the first Republican presidential debate. “You’ve got to stop this,” Shine told Cohen, according to Kelly.
While plenty of questions were raised about Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign, Jon Stewart says there was at least one question that was never posed to the Republican nominee. “Nobody asked Donald Trump what makes America great,” Stewart told Charlie Rose in an interview that aired on “CBS This Morning” on Thursday. Stewart, who made a few surprise appearances on stage and on television but was largely absent during 2016 election, said he “thought Donald Trump disqualified himself at numerous points” during the race.
Ted Cruz sharply criticized those protesting the election of Donald Trump as hypocrites who cried foul when Trump suggested he might not accept the results if he didn’t win. “We had an election,” Cruz continued.

Bernie Sanders delivered a stern warning to Donald Trump in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday night, vowing to vigorously oppose any policy that reflected the hateful rhetoric that the Republican president-elect used on the campaign trail. “Mr. Trump said a whole lot of things during the campaign,” Sanders said in what was billed as a “major speech” at George Washington University. The Vermont senator, who lost his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination to Hillary Clinton, said he is already holding Trump accountable on at least two issues.
Roughly 10 hours after tweeting that the process of picking his cabinet was “very organized,” President-elect Donald Trump railed against a New York Times report that his transition team was “in a state of disarray” and U.S. allies were “struggling” to reach him. “The failing @nytimes story is so totally wrong on transition,” Trump tweeted early Wednesday morning.

“I’m not going to change my mind just because I won,” Trump said in an interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes” that aired Sunday.

If her lead holds, Clinton would be the first presidential candidate since 2000 to win the popular vote while losing the White House.
CBS News’ “60 Minutes” — which scored the first full sit-down with Donald Trump since he became president-elect — is facing questions over what it chose not to release from the interview before it aired. During the interview, taped Friday afternoon at Trump Tower in New York City, “60 Minutes” correspondent Lesley Stahl asked Trump if he had a message for his supporters who have reportedly been harassing Latinos and Muslims since Trump’s election victory. “I would say, ‘Don’t do it, that’s terrible,’ because I’m gonna bring this country together,” Trump said.
Alex Jones, the far-right conspiracy theorist, radio talk show host, and provocateur founder of the popular Infowars website, says President-elect Donald Trump called him last week to thank him and his audience for their grassroots support of his unlikely candidacy. “On my way here, Donald Trump gave me a call,” Jones said in a YouTube video shot atop Mount Bonnell in Austin, Texas, and published Friday. A representative for the president-elect did not immediately return a request seeking confirmation of Trump’s call to Jones.
President-elect Donald Trump, with son Barron and wife, Melania, acknowledges his supporters on election night in New York City, Nov. 9, 2016. Since election night, millions of Americans who voted against Donald Trump have been torn by competing impulses.
Donald Trump is crediting his performances in the debates, the speeches he made at his raucous rallies and his massive Twitter following for his stunning victory over Hillary Clinton in last week’s presidential election. “The debates, especially the second and third, plus speeches and intensity of the large rallies, plus OUR GREAT SUPPORTERS, gave us the win!” the president-elect tweeted on Sunday. In an interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes” scheduled to air later Sunday night, Trump said that while his Twitter presence will be “very restrained” as commander in chief, he believes his rapid-fire tweeting played a key role in defeating Clinton.
President-elect Donald Trump announced on Sunday that Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus will be his chief of staff and Steve Bannon, his campaign’s chief executive and the former chairman of the conservative website Breitbart News, will serve as his chief strategist and senior counselor. The announcement came in a statement sent out by Trump’s transition team that said the pair would work as “equal partners” in a continuation of “the effective leadership team they formed during the campaign.” Bannon received top billing in the campaign’s announcement.
President-elect Donald Trump says he’s going to be “very restrained” in his use of Twitter as commander in chief but will reserve the right to use it as a “method” to combat what he perceives as negative stories about him. “I’m going to be very restrained, if I use it at all,” Trump said in an interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes” slated to air Sunday night. On Sunday morning, Trump used Twitter to draw attention to the New York Times’ “very poor and highly inaccurate coverage” of his stunning victory over Hillary Clinton in Tuesday’s presidential election.
As Americans adjust to the reality of Donald Trump’s election victory, their reactions and behavior are being closely watched and studied — by the children in their lives. Long before Election Day, experts speculated about the long-term ramifications that the tumultuous and unusually nasty campaign would have on children and adolescents. “Language and rhetoric, unquestionably, have a really important effect on children,” says Dr. Barbara Greenberg, a clinical psychologist who specializes in adolescents, children, teens and families.
President Obama promised on Wednesday to ensure a smooth handover of power to Donald Trump come January. “We are now all rooting for his success in uniting, and leading, this country,” Obama told a crowd of roughly 150 bleary-eyed aides in the Rose Garden of the White House, with Vice President Joe Biden standing next to him. Obama, who said he had spoken to the president-elect at around 3:30 a.m., said his administration would work hard to make Trump’s Jan. 20 assumption of his duties smooth — as hard as then President George W. Bush did when the former Illinois senator won his historic race in 2008.

“[The program] stands likely to leave millions of families — disproportionately the poorest and most fragile ones — behind.”
“[Paying] families monthly, instead of one lump sum ... will provide parents with more stability knowing when cash is coming.”
“More parents will disappear from the workforce, and more children will be locked into dependency.”
“Poverty is a political choice, not an inevitability.”
“Time is running out. There are only six months until monthly payments of the credit cease."
