Ben Carson blasts RNC, threatens to leave Republican Party

Ben CarsonBen Carson on Friday blasted the Republican National Committee following a Washington Post report that nearly two-dozen establishment party figures were prepping for a potential brokered convention as Donald Trump continues to lead most polls.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus held a dinner in Washington, D.C., on Monday, and, according to five people who spoke with the Post, the possibility of Trump heading into the Cleveland convention with a substantial number of delegates was a topic of discussion. Some attendees suggested the establishment lay the groundwork for a floor fight that could lead the party’s mainstream wing to unite behind an alternative. Carson rejected this approach.


White supremacist groups see Trump bump

Trump invigorates KKKThe Ku Klux Klan is using Donald Trump as a talking point in its outreach efforts. Stormfront, the most prominent American white supremacist website, is upgrading its servers in part to cope with a Trump traffic spike.

And former Louisiana Rep. David Duke reports that the businessman has given more Americans cover to speak out loud about white nationalism than at any time since his own political campaigns in the 1990s.


Trump cancels Israel visit after controversies over comments

Trump cancels Israel tripDonald Trump on Thursday called off a planned December trip to Israel, shelving what was shaping up to be an awkward visit by the Republican presidential front-runner following comments that managed to offend Muslims and Jews alike.

Dozens of Israeli lawmakers had called for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to cancel the Dec. 28 meeting with Trump. The prime minister, wary of being seen as endorsing Trump's positions despite his own Republican leanings, had given only guarded remarks, saying he would honor a previously scheduled meeting but at the same time rejecting Trump's calls to ban Muslims from entering the United States.


Middle East grows wary of Trump, despite ventures in region

Egyptian marketing managerDonald Trump's call to keep Muslims from traveling to the United States is causing dismay among business leaders in the Middle East, a region where the billionaire presidential candidate has done business for years, viewed as well-suited for his brand of over-the-top luxury.

Emirati business magnate Khalaf al-Habtoor only months ago proclaimed his support for the Republican candidate for president, but that's all changed in the wake of Trump's increasingly incendiary comments about Islam.


Trump Only Loves Rich Muslims Who Give Him Money

Trump loves Muslims who pay himDonald Trump clearly has issues with Muslims. The latest example is his vow to ban all Muslim immigration to the United States, declaring he wants a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.” Before that Trump had called for depriving American Muslims of civil liberties simply because of their faith by way of warrantless surveillance of Muslim Americans.

And he has even gone as far as to indict all Muslims by declaring recently that “worldwide the Muslims were absolutely going wild” cheering on the 9/11 attacks.

But there’s one type of Muslim Trump really loves: The ones that make him big bucks. You see, if a Muslim can show Trump the money, then all those concerns he has with Muslims go right out the window of his private jet as he jets off to the Gulf to cash in.


A Note on Trump: We Are No Longer Entertained

TrumpEarlier today, the candidate currently leading in the polls for the Republican presidential nomination called for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States." That was, of course, Donald Trump. As Jeffrey Goldberg just tweeted, "Donald Trump is now an actual threat to national security. He's providing jihadists ammunition for their campaign to demonize the US."

On the heels of Trump's proposed change for America, we will be changing how we cover him at The Huffington Post. Back in July, we announced our decision to put our coverage of Trump's presidential campaign in our Entertainment section instead of our Politics section. "Our reason is simple," wrote Ryan Grim and Danny Shea. "Trump's campaign is a sideshow."


Donald Trump Wants to Kill the Families of Terrorists

Trump: Kill the families of terroristsRepublican presidential candidate and real estate billionaire, Donald Trump, has had some ludicrous ideas in the past, but his most recent is a real doozy. Following the attacks in San Bernardino, California, Bill O'Reilly sat down with the GOP campaign runner and asked him what he would do to minimize civilian casualties. The Trump's response was to essentially kill the families of terrorists.

The specific quote, as provided by SunTimes is as follows: "You have to take out their families, when you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families. When they say they don't care about their lives, you have to take out their families."
