Forceful Chief of Staff Grates on Trump, and the Feeling Is Mutual

“Ultimately Donald Trump is his own man, and he’s going to resist all the control and regimented systems Kelly is trying to impose,” Mr. Stone said.For the seven months of the Trump administration, the favorite parlor game in the West Wing has been guessing how long imperiled aides like Mr. Priebus would hang on before getting fired. But these days it is Mr. Kelly’s state of mind, not Mr. Trump’s, that concerns the beleaguered aides buoyed by the new chief’s imposition of structure and clear lines of authority.The question now is how long Mr. Kelly will stay, with estimates ranging from a month to a year at the most. White House officials say that Mr. Kelly has given no indication he intends to leave anytime soon. He has thrown himself into long-term planning of the administration’s tax reform push, the president’s Asia trip in November and scheduling for the next several months, they said […]

Trump Promises ‘100 Percent’ Support to Storm-Battered South

“It has nothing to do with it, really,” Mr. Trump said. “I think this is separate.”Still, he reiterated his shutdown threat, although he said, “I hope that’s not necessary.” He also insisted that Mexico would ultimately pay for the border wall, a prospect officials there have repeatedly rejected.VideoTrump Defends Pardoning Sheriff ArpaioIn a joint news conference with the president of Finland, President Trump defended his controversial pardoning of the former Arizona sheriff, Joe Arpaio.By THE NEW YORK TIMES on Publish Date August 28, 2017.Photo by Al Drago for The New York Times.Watch in Times Video »embed “One way or another, Mexico will pay for the wall,” Mr. Trump said, adding, “It may be through reimbursement.”Mr. Trump also mounted a vigorous defense of his decision last week to pardon Joe Arpaio, the former Arizona sheriff convicted of criminal contempt for his tactics in hunting down and jailing undocumented immigrants.“A lot of people think it was the right thing to do,” Mr. Trump said, claiming that he had timed the announcement on a Friday night while Harvey was bearing down on Texas to maximize attention to the decision.“I assumed the ratings would be far higher than they would be normally,” Mr. Trump said.He rattled off a prepared list of people Democratic presidents had pardoned before him, including Bill Clinton’s pardoning of Marc Rich and Barack Obama’s commutation of Chelsea Manning’s sentence.“I stand by my pardon of Sheriff Joe,” Mr. […]

Trump’s Threats on Health Law Hide an Upside: Gains Made by Some Insurers

“Outside of the noise,” the surviving companies “are seeing a path forward in this marketplace,” said Deep Banerjee, an analyst with Standard & Poor’s who has examined the financial results of more than two dozen Blue Cross insurers.“It is still a new market,” he added, “and everyone is adjusting to it.”The healthier business outlook has been achieved at a big cost to consumers. To stanch their losses, many companies raised their prices substantially for this year while narrowing their networks of providers to hold down costs. In Phoenix, for example, a typical plan’s monthly premiums more than doubled. Although people with incomes low enough to qualify for federal subsidies were shielded from the brunt of the steep increases, the higher prices prompted Republicans to blame the law for plans that were out of many people’s reach.In some cases, companies will seek even higher rates for 2018; the lone insurer left in Iowa is asking for a nearly 60 percent increase, on average.Insurers have remained largely silent during the heated debate over the law’s future, hoping not to antagonize the Trump administration as it decides whether to continue paying the subsidies. The companies, which were vilified by proponents of the Affordable Care Act before it was enacted, are concerned that Mr. […]

Trump Pardons Joe Arpaio, Who Became Face of Crackdown on Illegal Immigration

“I won’t do it tonight because I don’t want to cause any controversy,” the president said Tuesday night at a campaign-style rally in Phoenix, after asking, “Was Sheriff Joe convicted for doing his job?”Continue reading the main story“I’ll make a prediction: I think he’s going to be just fine,” Mr. Trump said.Mr. Arpaio, 85, served for 24 years as sheriff of Maricopa County — which includes Phoenix — building a national reputation for harsh conditions in his county jail, and for his campaign against undocumented immigrants.Mr. Arpaio had touted himself as “America’s toughest sheriff,” making inmates wear pink underwear and serving jail food that at least some prisoners called inedible. He was also at the forefront of the so-called birther movement that aimed to investigate President Barack Obama’s birth certificate.The criminal conviction grew out of a lawsuit filed a decade ago charging that the sheriff’s office regularly violated the rights of Latinos, stopping people based on racial profiling, detaining them based solely on the suspicion that they were in the country illegally and turning them over to the immigration authorities.A federal district judge hearing the case ordered Mr. Arpaio in 2011 to stop detaining people based solely on suspicion of their immigration status, when there was no evidence that a state law had been broken. But the sheriff insisted that his tactics were legal and that he would continue employing them.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storySign Up for the Race/Related NewsletterJoin a deep and provocative exploration of race with a diverse group of New York Times journalists.Thank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

‘Evil Attack’ in Virginia Is Domestic Terrorism, Sessions Says

Trump Likes When C.I.A. Chief Gets Political, but Officers Are Wary

While in Congress, Mr. Pompeo argued for domestic surveillance on a wide scale, insisted that waterboarding was not torture and dismissed a hunger strike by detainees at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, as a “political stunt.” He said he believed Hillary Clinton had engaged in covering up the 2012 attacks on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, even after a Republican-led House inquiry found no new evidence to support the claim. Like almost all congressional Republicans, he opposed the Iran nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama administration.Mr. […]

Behind the Sudden Death of a $1 Billion Secret C.I.A. War in Syria

The program did have periods of success, including in 2015 when rebels using tank-destroying missiles, supplied by the C.I.A. and also Saudi Arabia, routed government forces in northern Syria. But by late 2015 the Russian military offensive in Syria was focusing squarely on the C.I.A.-backed fighters battling Syrian government troops. Many of the fighters were killed, and the fortunes of the rebel army reversed.Charles Lister, a Syria expert at the Middle East Institute, said he was not surprised that the Trump administration ended the program, which armed and trained thousands of Syrian rebels. (By comparison, a $500 million Pentagon program that envisioned training and equipping 15,000 Syrian rebels over three years, was canceled in 2015 after producing only a few dozen fighters.)“In many ways, I would put the blame on the Obama administration,” Mr. Lister said of the C.I.A. program. “They never gave it the necessary resources or space to determine the dynamics of the battlefield. They were drip-feeding opposition groups just enough to survive but never enough to become dominant actors.”Mr. […]
