Trump’s America: Aggrieved and Adoring Voices From Inside the Presidential Bubble - The New York Times
But inside the bubble, it is different. Inside, supporters share Mr. Trump’s view that men are the aggrieved gender. Inside, they vent their fury at Democrats and the news media using the president’s incendiary language. Inside, they harbor Mr. Trump’s conspiracy theories and echo his dark fear of immigrants.

Like Mr. Trump, the president’s most fervent supporters are not swayed by facts they consider inconvenient. Mr. Trump tells them the economy is the best the country has ever had, and they believe him, even if their communities are still struggling. The attacks on Mr. Trump only reinforce what they believe: He is on their side, no matter what.
In dozens of interviews with Republican voters at 11 rallies across eight states, one thing is clear: The country is no longer divided into Red America and Blue America. It is cleaved cleanly between two realities — Trump’s America and everyone else.

Week 82: Far from Winding Down, Mueller’s Probe Feels Energized - POLITICO Magazine
According to news reports this week, Trump was in the room when Cohen and Pecker discussed how best to squelch stories about Trump’s philandering. Should Trump not win reelection, he might be prosecuted for violating campaign finance laws by authorizing the payoffs (Cohen has already pleaded guilty). Speaking on CNN, correspondent Brian Todd said Trump hasn’t helped himself by changing his hush money story from I didn’t know to It’s not my fault to It’s not illegal.

‘He would have given up a very valuable appendage to get that job’ - POLITICO
White House aides say he is unlikely to attempt to reform the president’s habits of spending much of his time watching television and tweeting, or to curtail the influence of Trump’s daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, on the policymaking process.

The Great American Tax Heist Turns One by J. Bradford DeLong - Project Syndicate
Last December, Republicans relied on the support of conservative economists who predicted that the party's corporate tax cuts would boost productivity and investment in the United States substantially. The forecasts were wrong, and the silence of those who made them suggests that they knew it all along.

Mueller investigation news: Paul Manafort advised White House on how to attack investigation of Trump and Russia - Vox
We now have details as to how the indicted former campaign manager worked with the president to undermine federal law enforcement.
Paul Manafort, who served as the manager for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, provided advice to the president and senior White House officials on the FBI’s Russia investigation during the earliest days of the Trump administration. He gave guidance on how to undermine and discredit the FBI’s inquiry into whether the president, his campaign aides, and family members conspired with the Russian Federation and its intelligence services to covertly defeat Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign, according to government records and interviews with individuals familiar with the matter. Manafort himself was under criminal investigation by the FBI during this same time, a fact then known to the White House.
Last Friday, special counsel Robert Mueller alleged in court filings that Manafort told “multiple discernible lies” to FBI agents and prosecutors, in violation of the cooperation agreement between Manafort and the special counsel’s office. Among those, Mueller charged, were lies by Manafort to investigators that he had not been in contact with anyone in the White House.
