"My Dinner With Comey: Current and Former FBI Officials Dispute Trump Account of Meeting With FBI Director

... At the Jan. 27 dinner, a week after assuming the presidency, Trump requested a loyalty pledge from Comey, people familiar with the dinner say. Comey replied that he could not offer loyalty, but he could pledge his honesty.

It's not known whether the men talked about national security adviser Michael Flynn. Flynn had been interviewed by the FBI a few days before, on Jan. 24 — grilled about his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak.

This Donald moron is in charge of ...

"U.S. Set to Start Three-Month Countdown to Nafta Renegotiation

... Reworking the trade deal was a central promise of Trump’s election campaign, when he called Nafta a “disaster” that has inflated the trade deficit and cost millions of U.S. jobs. After threatening to withdraw from the 1994 agreement entirely last month, Trump reconsidered in favor a re-negotiation but said he’ll terminate America’s involvement if talks don’t go his way..."
