Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Has Little in Common With Most Americans  

One of the main jobs of Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee this week has been to deflect attacks on Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch by Democrats, who are trying to paint him as a tool of corporations and a foe of the little guy. To that end, Republicans have tried both to humanize the federal judge and to highlight the parts of his background that might make him more relatable to the average American.

Black Congressional Leaders Will Confront Trump Over Key Policy Priorities  

During last year's presidential campaign, Donald Trump's outreach to African American voters was summed up by a single question he repeatedly asked them: "What do you have to lose?"

Now, seven months after Trump first posed that question, the Congressional Black Caucus says it is prepared to share its answer.
