Trump plans to depart Washington the morning of Inauguration Day: sources
  + stars: | 2021-01-15 | by ( Steve Holland | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -1.00   time to read: +2 min
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump now plans to leave Washington on the morning of Inauguration Day next Wednesday after considering a departure on Tuesday, two sources familiar with the matter said on Friday. Trump will then fly on to Palm Beach, Florida, to begin his post-presidency at his Mar-a-Lago club, the sources told Reuters. A handful of White House aides plan to work for Trump in Palm Beach as the former real estate tycoon works on retaining his clout in the Republican Party. Some advisers have been urging the president to host Biden for a White House meeting ahead of Inauguration Day, but there has been no sign Trump is willing to do that, an administration official said. A poll by the Pew Research Center said Trump is leaving the White House with the lowest job approval of his presidency (29%) and increasingly negative ratings for his post-election conduct.

Why the defunct South Vietnam flag was flown at the Capitol riot

The yellow-and-red-striped banners of the former South Vietnam flew above crowds of rioters all over the Capitol grounds. But to community advocates who saw the South Vietnamese flag, or the Yellow Flag, as a symbol of democracy and unity, its presence at a riot was both alarming and infuriating. After communist North Vietnam defeated the U.S.-backed South in 1975, scores of South Vietnamese refugees resettled in America. But as with other emblems of national pride, allegiance to the South Vietnamese banner has also deepened divisions within the group. On college campuses, domestic and international students have fought over which Vietnamese flag should be flown at graduation ceremonies.

Listen and subscribe to “The Argument” from your mobile device:Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Google Play | RadioPublic | Stitcher | RSS FeedIt’s impeachment season all over again on “The Argument,” and Michelle and Ross debate whether Republicans will, at long last, turn their backs to President Trump, or confirm that their party is resolutely his. Will Mitch McConnell really consider delivering enough Republican votes to convict Trump? The duo discuss the events of the last week and a half and the deepening fracture in the Republican Party, and Michelle is surprised to long for “the party of cruel Ayn Rand-ism” in exchange for “Qanon and guerrilla warfare.” Ross admits how wrong he’s been in analyzing violent extremism in recent years. Then, the hosts take up the question of deplatforming Trump, and the rabid hordes he foments. And finally, Ross suggests you find some escapism in a grim, dark, revisionist fantasy.

‘We Need to Stabilize’: Big Business Breaks With Republicans

“They’re not just the money,” said Nancy Koehn, a historian at Harvard Business School. They carry an enormous amount of weight, regardless of your political loyalties.”For decades, the Republicans were seen as the party of big business. Their support for low taxes and light regulation was manna to executives eager to raise profits and avoid government entanglements, and chief executives and big companies were reliable funders of Republicans up and down the ballot. Mr. Trump has frayed those bonds. Four years ago, few major chief executives supported Mr. Trump during his first campaign.

The Arizona Republican Party will vote on a measure to censure Cindy McCain, the widow of Sen. John McCain, on Jan. 23, in part because of her support for President-elect Joe Biden and for same-sex marriage. “Cindy McCain has condemned President Trump for his criticism of her husband and erroneously placed behaviors over actual presidential results,” the proposal states. “As chairman of the AZGOP she managed to turn Arizona blue in November for the first time since 1996,” Cindy McCain said of Ward. But the state Republican Party later tweeted that Maricopa County couldn’t censure McCain because of a rule that prohibited amendments to resolutions on the floor. In addition to voting on the McCain censure proposal on Jan. 23, the state party is expected to re-elect Ward as chair, according to Arizona Central.

Trump relented and instead hunkered down at the White House to watch television images of the mob rioting he is accused of triggering. Trump’s last days in the White House have been marked by rage and turmoil, multiple sources said. The White House declined to comment for this story. If convicted by the Senate in a trial that would occur after he has left the White House, Trump could be banned from holding federal office again. “I would be floored if that were to happen,” another White House official said.

Indiana legislators this week introduced a measure that would ban conversion therapy for minors by licensed counselors. In 2018, Pence's press secretary, Alyssa Farah, insisted that he "has never supported conversion therapy and doesn't support it now." Buttigieg did not respond to a request for comment about the conversion therapy bill. In 2019, a federal judge struck down a two-year-old conversion therapy ban in Tampa, Florida, ruling that regulation of psychotherapy "is a state, not a municipal concern." Kruse and Raatz declined to comment about whether their bill is also intended to ban conversion therapy.

“The party is going to be totally broken” if it abandons Trump, Foster says, predicting Trump loyalists will spin off into a new third party. And the choice confronting party leaders as they ponder a renewed impeachment effort – whether to continue backing Trump or make him a pariah – will almost certainly cost the party voters it needs to win future elections, Republican party officials and strategists say. ‘GET OVER IT’Trump has at times been defiant amid the blowback from the Capitol riot. “The president defeated the Republican establishment in 2016 – the Republican Party, in terms of the voters, the movement, is very representative of the president’s agenda,” says Boris Epshteyn, a strategic advisor to Trump. It allowed Trump’s Republican critics to say, “we told you so - Trump is a threat,” Bruesewitz says.

The pair has given $470,300 this year, with 99% of that money going to Republican candidates. But simply examining large donations from retired founders does not lead to a complete or accurate picture of either Home Depot or Lowe's' political leanings. He has made the occasional one-off donation to other, largely Republican, candidates and campaigns, including now-Sen. Mitt Romney's presidential run, Jeb Bush, and David Perdue. So, while the home improvement giants and the more high-profile founders in the industry may favor Republican candidates at the moment, the partisan donation gap may be starting to balance out. And when it comes to political contributions, Home Depot and Lowe's both happen to reflect the conservative tendencies of many prominent retailers.

Widen After Impeachment Vote Some House Republicans have called on Representative Liz Cheney to resign from her leadership post after she voted to impeach President Trump. Representative Liz Cheney had issued a scathing statement the day before the impeachment vote repudiating President Trump. Mr. Biden will detail his proposal, which he and his economic team have been honing for weeks, in an evening speech in Delaware. “This nation also remains in the grip of a deadly virus and a reeling economy,” Mr. Biden said Wednesday. Far more of a party institutionalist, Mr. Biden has promised to rebuild state parties and deepen investments in the committee.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told his GOP colleagues in a note Wednesday afternoon that he remains undecided whether he'll vote to convict President Donald Trump at his coming impeachment trial. In a statement following the impeachment vote, McConnell said there is no chance the Senate could have a trial before Trump leaves office Jan. 20. He added: "Even if the Senate process were to begin this week and move promptly, no final verdict would be reached until after President Trump had left office. "A Senate trial can begin immediately, with agreement from the current Senate Majority Leader to reconvene the Senate for an emergency session, or it will begin after January 19th," he said in a statement. The official said the White House has "minor concerns" about the Senate's convicting Trump given news reports that McConnell is privately supportive and expressed that that scenario is unlikely.

The decision could define the party and shape American democracy for generations to come. The impeachment measure is likely to sail through the Democratic-led House, with or without Republican support. And for some who want to make a break from Trump and chart a new path for the Republican Party, time is running short. The outcome may center on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., a Trump ally who broke with him on Jan. 6 when making an impassioned plea to affirm President-elect Joe Biden's victory. "I think there is a sizeable majority in both chambers that desires an outcome where Trump cannot run for public office again," Cooper said.

Four other Republican House members, Jaime Herrera Beutler, John Katko, Adam Kinzinger and Fred Upton, also said they supported impeachment. Pelosi on Tuesday named nine impeachment managers, who would present the House’s case for impeachment during a Senate trial. If Trump is impeached by the House, he would have a trial in the Senate to determine his guilt. Democrats could also use an impeachment trial to push through a vote blocking Trump from running for office again. Rather than a two-thirds vote, a simple Senate majority is needed to disqualify Trump from future office.

Mr. Trump championed ideas that had been bubbling up among the Republican grass roots since the late 20th century. By articulating a right-wing America First populism already deeply rooted in many circles of the Republican Party, Mr. Trump turned himself into the messiah for MAGA-land. Mr. Trump’s style of personalistic authoritarian populism is his alone. But Mr. Trump’s Republicanism, despite his belief that everything is about him, has always been about more than that. He has forged what is likely to be the Republican blueprint for the future, absent his most unhinged behavior.

House Democrats are planning to vote Wednesday on impeaching President Donald Trump for urging his supporters to march on the U.S. Capitol last week, resulting in violent clashes that left five dead. The article of impeachment, for 'incitement of insurrection,' is expected to pass in the Democratic-controlled House, which would make Trump the first president in U.S.history to be impeached twice. His remarks came just hours before the House approved a separate resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove the president from office. Read the highlights:— Republican impeachment support grows as House urges Pence to remove Trump from office. — 'Chilling': Security tightens around the Capitol ahead of Biden inauguration amid 'increased threat.'
