Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney announced on Thursday that the 2020 G-7 economic summit would be hosted at President Donald Trump’s famous Doral resort in south Florida, and quite predictably, Democrats, the media and Never-Trumpers utterly lost their minds.

From the moment he announced his run for the Democrats’ 2020 nomination, former Vice President Joe Biden has been widely heralded as the clear frontrunner and presumptive nominee, based largely upon his name recognition and a belief that his reputation as a centrist gave him the best chance out of all other candidates to prevent […]

With none of the Democrat 2020 presidential candidates truly catching fire and taking a commanding lead among voters, speculation that failed 2016 nominee Hillary Clinton will jump in to make another run at the White House has dramatically increased.
