  • Sens. Donnelly, Young comment on North Korea threat briefing
    “Addressing the threat North Korea’s weapons and ballistic missiles pose to the United States and our allies need to be a top national security priority of the president and Congress.” - U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly after a Wednesday White House briefing for all 100 U.S. senators on the threat of North Korea’s nuclear program . U.S. Sen. Todd Young observed, “Today’s briefing at the White House underscored that North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs represent an urgent and unacceptable threat to the United States and our allies. The administration must keep all options on the table. Furthermore, I support the Trump administration’s strategy of coordinating closely with our allies, strengthening our military capabilities in the region, and making clear to Beijing that it is in China’s interests to utilize all of their available diplomatic and economic leverage to change North Korea’s behavior.” Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Sec. Jim Mattis took part in the briefing that was attended briefly by President Trump.

  • President Trump a polling bottom feeder
    President Trump is flagging in the polls, with the latest NBC/WSJ Poll putting his job approval at 40% with 56% disapproving. NBC notes that Trump is “still holding on to Republicans and his most committed supporters. In the poll, 82% of Republican respondents, 90% of self-described Trump voters, and 56% of white working-class Americans” but he stands at only 30% with independents and 34% of college educated whites. And here’s how Trump stacks up with modern presidents at this stage of their presidencies: Eisenhower: 73% (April 1953); Kennedy: 78% (April 1961); Nixon: 61% (April 1969); Carter: 63% (April 1977); Reagan: 67% (April 1981); Bush 41: 58% (April 1989); Clinton: 52% (April 1993); Bush 43: 57% (April 2001); Obama: 61% (April 2009); Trump: 40% (April 2017). Why the low standing? Just 27% give him high marks for being knowledgeable and experienced and only 21% give him high marks for having the right temperament. And then there’s that problem with the truth: Just 25% give him high marks for being honest and trustworthy, down from 34%. On top of all this, he faces a yuuuuge week with the debt ceiling showdown, a new tax plan his Treasury Department doesn’t seem to know about, a second stab at TrumpCare, and that arbitrary "first 100-days" measuring post. - Brian A.
