How Does a Democrat Run for Re-election in a Trump State? Very Carefully

For Mr. Donnelly, his hold on office already perilous, supporting a Republican tax bill is only the latest possibility he must consider in the delicate dance of running for another term next year in a state Mr. Trump carried by nearly 20 points. He needs Republicans in great numbers to cross over and vote for him, so being on the wrong side of Mr. Trump carries great risk. At the same time, he must not alienate his Democratic base, many of whom distrust any kind of relationship with the president.After the president called him out, Mr. Donnelly tried to laugh it off in the moment, but did not find it funny. “This is something I have not experienced before,” he said in an interview in this suburb of Indianapolis.“I actually told his folks, ‘You have one of the most unusual sales tactics I have ever seen. I said, ‘In my experience when you are trying to have someone like your product or buy your product, you’re usually nice to your customer.’”More important, the ultimatum did little to get the president closer to winning Mr. Donnelly’s support […]

Trump’s Next Move on Health Care? Choice for Secretary May Offer Clue

The White House had no comment on Saturday, but two advisers who asked not to be identified discussing internal matters said two top candidates were Scott Gottlieb, the commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, and Seema Verma, the administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Both have previously been vetted by the White House, nominated by the president and confirmed by the Senate to their current jobs within recent months, a significant selling point.Other names have been floated as well, including David Shulkin, the secretary of veterans affairs and a favorite of the president’s. But he has been criticized for a European trip with his wife that mixed business and sightseeing and was partially financed by taxpayers, and Mr. Trump may be reluctant to move him because he has been critical to fixing veterans’ care.Some reports floated former Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, an assistant secretary of health and human services under President George W. Bush. But he was a caustic critic of Mr. Trump during his own brief campaign for the White House that ended in late 2015 after he called the future president a “narcissist” and “egomaniacal madman.”Mr. Trump may not necessarily fill the post quickly.

The Moral Voice of Corporate America

Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan said, “The equal treatment of all people is one of our nation’s bedrock principles.”Walmart’s chief executive, Doug McMillon, criticized Mr. Trump by name for his handling of the violence in Charlottesville, and called for healing.And in a rebuke to the president, who suggested that both the racist groups and the counterprotesters marching in Charlottesville were to blame for the violence there, a wave of chief executives who had agreed to advise Mr. Trump quit his business advisory councils, leading to the dissolution of two groups.The forthright engagement of these and other executives with one of the most charged political issues in years — the swelling confidence of a torch-bearing, swastika-saluting, whites-first movement — is “a seminal moment in the history of business in America,” said Darren Walker, the president of the Ford Foundation and a board member at PepsiCo.“In this maelstrom, the most clarifying voice has been the voice of business,” he said […]
