Trump’s Crisis Spurs Talk of White House Departures

(NEW YORK/WASHINGTON) – President Donald Trump’s turnabout on the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia has rocked his administration, leading to rising speculation that some top officials may be looking for a way out. A parade of business executives broke ties with Trump on Wednesday, a day after he blamed white nationalists and counter-protesters in equal measure for the weekend clashes that left one woman dead. Now, frustrated aides could be next. Trump’s remarks have left some wondering if sticking by the president comes at too high a cost to their reputations. “A lot of us joined this administration thinking we could bring to it the experience and expertise that the president didn’t have an opportunity to gain in his business career, and to encourage some restraint in what he says pub...

Trump Comments on Race Open Breach With C.E.O.s, Military and G.O.P.

WASHINGTON — President Trump found himself increasingly isolated in a racial crisis of his own making on Wednesday, abandoned by the nation’s top business executives, contradicted by military leaders and shunned by Republicans outraged by his defense of white nationalist protesters in Charlottesville, Va. The breach with the business community was the most striking. Titans of American industry and finance revolted against a man they had seen as one of their own, concluding Wednesday morning they could no longer serve on two of Mr. Trump’s advisory panels. But before Stephen A. Schwarzman, the chief executive of the Blackstone Group and one of Mr. Trump’s closest business confidants, could announce a decision to disband Mr. Trump’s Strategic and Policy Forum — in a prepared statement callin...

Mark Zuckerberg says Facebook is taking down posts and ‘watching the situation closely’ in Charlottesville

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has weighed in on the violent protests that took place in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend, condemning neo-Nazis and promising to make Facebook “a place where everyone can feel safe.” “The last few days have been hard to process. I know a lot of us have been asking where this hate comes from,” Zuckerberg wrote Wednesday afternoon. “As a Jew, it’s something I’ve wondered much of my life.

Photographer: Daniel Acker/Bloomberg From handcrafted beer steins to sleeping bags, these American companies have survived global competition. Entire industries, from textiles to toys, have become almost extinct in the U.S. as manufacturers moved abroad in search of lower costs or got swept away by a wave of imports. Some products aren’t Made in America at all anymore. Others still are—but by just a handful of small businesses, or maybe only one. They’re mostly surviving by the skin of their teeth in a world where shoppers care more about price than country of origin. Their stories show the challenge of producing at home—as President Donald Trump is pushing for—and also that it’s not impossible. D...

5 Solid Reasons to End the Death Tax

#TaxReform: 5 Solid Reasons to End the Death Tax By SBE Council at 14 August, 2017, 4:26 pm by Raymond J. Keating- Tax relief and reform is critical for entrepreneurship, small business, U.S. competitiveness and our economy. And it’s important for any reform effort to permanently end the estate, or death, tax. The Death Tax: A Brief History The current U.S. death tax was first imposed in 1916 at a rate of 10 percent. The tax rate topped out at 77 percent at the beginning of World War II, and later declined to 70 percent in 1977. The Reagan tax cuts of the 1980s saw the rate drop to 55 percent. The rate was scheduled to fall to 50 percent in 1993, but that cut was eliminated by the Clinton tax increase that year. Later, the George W. Bush tax relief package saw the rate decline to 50 percen...
