‘Dealmaker’ Trump flip-flops on dreamers

On his way to the White House, President Donald Trump forgot all he knows about negotiating. Author of best-selling "The Art of the Deal," President Trump reneged on his important campaign promise to end the deferred action for childhood arrivals amnesty without getting a whit in return.

Bad hair wars between Trump and North Korea

Enterprising entrepreneurs out there might want to invest in a fleet of tractor backhoes and partial ownership of a limestone quarry, because it's starting to look like bunker-digging time in America. The threat of nuclear war is spiking like the needle of a meat thermometer on a lava-flow.

From using reusable shopping bags to driving hybrid cars, consumers have been persuaded they can do their part to protect the environment by changing their behavior. Everyone's "going green" these days, even America's housing industry.
