Donald Trump: I would send Syrian refugees home

TrumpDonald Trump has said he would send home all Syrian refugees the US accepts, if he becomes president.

The billionaire, who is the current frontrunner in the Republican race for the White House, told a New Hampshire rally: "If I win, they're going back." It marks a reversal in policy - earlier this month he told Fox News the US should take in more refugees.


Clinton campaign blasts McCarthy for admitting political goal of Benghazi panel

Kevin McCarthyHillary Clinton’s campaign and its allies are seizing on House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s boast that the Benghazi Select Committee — the panel set up to review the former secretary’s actions related to the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks in Libya — has succeeded in damaging her poll numbers.

"This is a damning display of honesty by the possible next Speaker of the House," press Secretary Brian Fallon said in a statement emailed to POLITICO. "Kevin McCarthy just confessed that the committee set up to look into the deaths of four brave Americans at Benghazi is a taxpayer-funded sham. This confirms Americans' worst suspicions about what goes on in Washington."


FACT CHECK: Math in Trump’s tax plan doesn’t always add up

TrumpIn proposing a major overhaul of the U.S. tax system, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump vows to reduce the tax rates paid by millions of Americans, spur economic growth not seen in decades and do so without adding to the national debt.

“It’s a tax reform that I think will make America strong and great again,” Trump said Monday. Here is a look at some of the claims Trump made when announcing his tax plan and how they compare with the facts.


Boehner slams some GOP hard liners as 'false prophets'

John BoehnerHouse Speaker John Boehner warned Sunday against "false prophets" in his own party making unrealistic promises, saying his resignation had averted a government shutdown this week but not the GOP's broader battle over how to wield power.

Speaking on CBS's "Face the Nation," Boehner unloaded against conservatives long outraged that even with control of both houses of Congress, Republicans have not succeeded on key agenda items, such as repealing President Barack Obama's health care law and striking taxpayer funding from Planned Parenthood. He refused to back down from calling one of the tea party-styled leaders and presidential candidate, Sen. Ted Cruz, a "jackass."


Scott Walker drops out of US 2016 presidential race

Scott Walker drops out of presidential raceWisconsin Gov. Scott Walker plans to drop out of the presidential race later today, The New York Times first reported Monday.

Walker is set to hold a press conference in Madison, Wis. at 6 p.m. ET on Monday. Multiple news outlets confirmed the news Monday afternoon.

Walker skyrocketed to conservative notoriety after signing legislation to curb Wisconsin public sector unions' collective bargaining rights in 2011. But early polling has shown support for the governor, once viewed among the Republicans' strongest 2016 prospects, fading fast. After a lackluster performance in the second Republican presidential debate last week, Walker was polling at less than one-half percent.


Multimillionaire Carly Fiorina Took 4 Years to Pay Staffers From Her Last Campaign

Carly FiorinaCarly Fiorina, the Republican presidential candidate and former Hewlett-Packard CEO, is marketing herself as a pragmatic, fiscally responsible businesswoman—the only GOP candidate who knows, as she says, "how the economy actually works." Yet during her unsuccessful US Senate bid in 2010, her opponents slammed her record at HP.

When she led the firm, it laid off 18,000 workers, and its stock declined by 41 percent. Eventually, she was forced out of the company but departed with a $21 million golden parachute. Now she may need to answer for another managerial blunder. For more than four years, she was a deadbeat and didn't pay the bills she owed for her Senate campaign. She only settled these outstanding debts just before she jumped into the 2016 race.
