A new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll finds that by a 53-to-40-percent margin, Americans deemed Trump’s first year a failure. And by an almost 2-to-1 margin (61 to 32 percent), Americans said they believe Trump has divided the country since his election.

Trump can’t stop (InTouch Magazine’s) story, because the interview (with porn star Stormy Daniels) was from 2007, before she signed her non-disclosure, and the magazine also verified Daniels’ account with two sources at the time – and had the actress take a polygraph.

Satoko participated in a press conference at the Kansai University and got her official send-off to the Olympic Games.

Fact-checking President Trump’s ‘Fake News Awards’

The “Fake News Awards” announced on the Republican National Committee website and touted by President Trump pose a conundrum: Does it really count if the news organization admits error?

News organizations operate in a competitive arena and mistakes are bound to be made. The key test is whether an error is acknowledged and corrected.

President Trump almost never admits error, even as he has made more than 2,000 false or misleading statements.
