SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The issue of misleading political messages on social media has arisen again, as President Donald Trump tweeted an edited video showing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi repeatedly...

So, the video that Trump tweeted wasn't "deceptively edited." I think it's pretty obvious that it shows the same clip of Pelosi ripping up the speech. It was clearly juxtaposed against the stories Trump told in the speech to highlight that this is what Pelosi was ripping up. It's not deceptive, but it is very effective. This is what has angered the left.

So? Why does it matter if multiple candidates can declare victory? Their declarations mean nothing, and the victory means nothing - only delegate counts at the end of the process matter.

Excuse me, Fake News. Ellipses can be used to mark someplace words have been removed, but it has other uses! For example, if someone just trails off... that doesn't mean something is missing! All three examples cited read to me as Trump just trailed off. "They say Crowdstrike... I guess you have one of your wealthy people... The server, they say Ukraine has it." That's two of them right there. That's what happens when conversational English gets written down.

Trump has only recently increased his rhetoric after these challenges have continued without merit. Nobody has apologized for wrongful accusations or claims. Nobody has apologized for claiming evidence existed that didn't. It has just continued.

At some point, it moves from political gamesmanship to treason. We've passed that point.

More great reporting from CNN! How do they know it's not for sale? If serious, there's a huge negotiation process. Also, doesn't everything have its price? Hard to say no before you understand exactly what's being offered in return.

BRIDGEWATER, N.J. - Mounting signs of global economic distress this week have alarmed President Donald Trump, who is worried that a downturn could imperil his reelection, even as administration officials acknowledge that they have not planned for a possible recession. Trump is banking on a strong economy to win a second term in 2020, and in recent weeks has impulsively lashed out at the Federal Reserve, pressured Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to label China a "currency manipulator," and unexpectedly delayed tariffs on Chinese imports out of fear they could depress holiday retail sales. Yet despite gyrations in the U.S. stock market and economic slowdowns in other countries, officials in the White House, at the Treasury Department and throughout the administration are planning no new steps to attempt to stave off a recession. Rather, Trump's economic advisers have been delivering the president upbeat assessments in which they argue the domestic economy is stronger than many forecasters are making it out to be. In turn, Trump has sought to use his Twitter pulpit to drown out negative indicators. On Thursday he promoted the U.S. economy as "the Biggest, Strongest and Most Powerful Economy in the World," and, citing growth in the retail sector, predicted that it would only get stronger. He also accused the news media of "doing everything they can to crash the economy because they think that will be bad for me and my re-election." Privately, however, the president has sounded anxious and apprehensive. From his golf club in New Jersey where he is vacationing this week, Trump has called a number of business leaders and financial executives to sound them out - and they have provided him a decidedly mixed analysis, according to two people familiar with the discussions who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the...

Good! He should be fretting about a possible economic downturn. This is his job! I wish Obama had spent even half the time Trump does worrying about the economy.
