Donald Trump weighed in Tuesday on the reemerging debate over 28 pages of redactions in the 9/11 commission report and said he thinks the excerpt will show that U.S. ally Saudi Arabia played a significant role in the terrorist attacks.
“We attacked Iraq and frankly by attacking Iraq — they were not the ones that knocked down the World Trade Center,” he said on “Fox and Friends.”
Candidates in both parties, members of Congress and President Obama are engaged in an intensifying debate over whether to release the classified pages, in part because of proposed legislation over whether to allow 9/11 victims' families to sue Saudi Arabia for any possible role in the attacks. While Obama said he plans to wait on his decision until the director of national intelligence finishes a review of the information, lawmakers are pressuring him to declassify it.
The first sign that Donald Trump realized his capture of the Republican presidential nomination was in danger was his hiring of Washington veteran Paul J. Manafort three weeks ago to whip his campaign into shape.
Trump’s celebration after winning Tuesday's New York primary suggests that Manafort’s presence might be making a difference.
Trump, the New York billionaire whose gushers of insults on Twitter have defied every rule of political etiquette, did not entirely suppress his trademark bravado.
Bernie Sanders flew home to Vermont after losing by double digits to Hillary Clinton in Tuesday's New York primary, telling reporters that he needs to "take a day off" after many weeks on the road so he can get "recharged."
But he insisted that his return home was not a signal that he was quitting the Democratic race, despite a growing number of calls by some Clinton supporters that he do so.
"No," Sanders said, when asked if he was dropping out. "We think we have a message that is resonating around this country. We have a path toward victory."
Donald Trump may have swept New York's GOP primary, but Republican voters appeared to have less interest in his signature issue: immigration.
Fewer than 1 in 10 surveyed identified immigration as the most important issue facing the country this election year.
New York Republicans do back Trump's call to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the U.S., as do other GOP voters polled in primary states. Nearly 7 in 10 support the idea of the ban, according to exit polls.
New Yorkers really, truly did not like Ted Cruz – perhaps a punishing result of his riff against "New York values," or a deep sign of trouble ahead in the mid-Atlantic states that vote next week.
Four in 10 New York Republicans said they would not vote for the Texas Republican if he was the party's nominee, according to exit polls. Six in 10 said they were "concerned" or "scared" by what he would do in the White House.
Donald Trump swept almost every category of voter – by age, gender, education, income, according to the polls.
Hillary Clinton has won New York’s Democratic primary, delivering a blow to rival Bernie Sanders’ efforts to cut into her lead in delegates in the race for the party’s nomination for president.
Clinton had long been favored to win the contest, thanks to voters’ familiarity with her as a former U.S. senator for the state and its large contingent of minority voters, who have propelled her to victory several times in the primary season.
