If you had told Ronald Reagan in 1988 that in 30 years, the president of the United States would be chummy with communist dictators in China and North Korea, eager to please a brutal Kremlin autocrat, and indifferent to the needs of our military allies, he might have said: That’s what you get for electing a Democrat.

White House economist Peter Navarro, whose boss claimed credit when the stock market was rising, now thinks it should be ignored.
Donald Trump has lousy approval ratings. House Republicans are bracing for carnage in November.
