Donald Trump's new campaign managers state they will let Donald Trump be Donald Trump.

Trump needs to increase the staff's meal allowance. I know the minimum wage is tough to give up, but, then increase their meal allowances. Is any of the Trump staff on Food Stamps? 

So, Donald Trump is the boss. What he says goes.

Hm. Where did I hear that  before. It doesn't leave a good feeling. And hate speech about Hillary Clinton isn't his policy, is it?

Hm? I know I heard that somewhere before.

Oh. Yeah. Now, I remember. 

"...I am the Decider...."

Trump needs to increase the staff's meal allowance. I know the minimum wage is rough to give up, but, at the very least increase the meal allowance.

The complaint is Hillary Clinton is not doing press conferences.

Since the beginning of her candidacy, she has always opted to grassroots campaigning. She wants to know Americans and their ideas and to understand where minimum wage fits in to increase wealth to Americans and maintain a healthy and growing USA economy, which happens to be among the best currently on a global basis. 

I haven't read Director Comey's 58 page report, but, I will. I am sure it is interesting. There are reports that Donald Trump is pulling away from Hillary Clinton. I find it hard to believe her campaign is not paying attention to such things.

FBI Director James Comey (click here) stunned reporters back in July when he laced into Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state.
"There is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information," Comey said of Clinton and her team.
The FBI cleared Clinton of any criminal wrongdoing in connection with its investigation, saying it couldn’t prove that she had knowingly exchanged classified information on her private email server.
But on Friday, the FBI took the unusual step of releasing a 58-page report with the findings from its work on the case, including 11 pages of notes from its interview with Clinton herself. I read the report, and it goes a long way toward explaining why Comey considered Clinton’s behavior "extremely careless" — even if it also suggests there was likely little malice behind her worst missteps....

I love that exit of President Obama. The American people leave no stone untruned and have a dignified exit right next to the POTUS seal. Nice.

I also have to wonder if that exit isn't a safer and more secure exit from Air Force One.

I don't know if Presidents have a motto while they are in office, but, President Obama's should be "Defender of life and vanquish of human rights abuses." Across his administration he has carried out actions that have done exactly that. He chose Samantha Powers as his Ambassador to the United Nations for a reason.

The United States of America accepts the apology of President of the Philippines. But, these are the Philippines and most Americans don't recognize their old faithful ally. What gives? Civil War, ethnic cleansing or simply a method to end big money in the Philippine elections?

Vientiane, Loas
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte (click here) on Tuesday expressed regret for referring to President Obama as a "son of a bitch" and said his nation seeks closer ties with the United States.
The de facto apology came one day after Duterte warned Obama not to question him about his country's extrajudicial killings in a war on drugs. More than 2,000 suspected drug users and dealers have died since Duterte took office two months ago.
On Monday, Duterte said Obama must not throw questions at him, or “son of a bitch, I will swear at you in that forum." Duterte made the comments before arriving here that night for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations Summit. The two leaders had planned to meet, but after Duterte's comments the White House said the meeting would not happen....
