President Donald Trump is slamming the constitutionally protected provision of birthright citizenship as a “crazy, lunatic policy” in an incendiary endgame to the midterm election campaign, which could save the Senate but risks putting the House beyond reach.
On Thursday night, just hours after giving what amounted to a campaign speech on immigration in the Roosevelt Room at the White House, President Donald Trump jetted to Missouri to rally support for Republican Josh Hawley’s challenge to Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill.

In a move that was, like so much of his rhetoric, both disturbing and completely unsurprising, on Thursday night President Trump mocked the #MeToo movement, revived his “Pocahontas” insult against Senator Elizabeth Warren, and imagined throwing a DNA test at her and challenging her to prove she’s Native American.
President Donald Trump on Tuesday referred to former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman as a “dog.”

US officials at the United Nations are seeking to eliminate the word “gender” from UN human rights documents, most often replacing it with “woman”, apparently as part of the Trump administration’s campaign to define transgender people out of existence.
Caitlyn Jenner says she made a “mistake” in thinking she could work with President Donald Trump to benefit the LGBTQ community and is now no longer a Trump supporter.
