Bernie Madoff has had some rough times in prison, but he doesn’t blame the facility to which he’s been sentenced. To the contrary, he told The Wall StreetJournal’s Sital Patel the Butner Federal Correction Complex was “very laid back,” and a bit like a “camp.” He went on to rave, “This is as good as it gets,” and said the Federal Bureau of Prisons would “put you where you will survive.” Sounds alright, depending on how much you likedcamp.
After decades of conflict, we have come to an understanding with the Taliban on a significant reduction in violence across #Afghanistan. This is an important step on a long road to peace, and I call on all Afghans to seize this opportunity.
Since I stepped on the #DemDebate stage, our grassroots campaign has raised more than $5 million. We’ve not only reached our critical goal of raising $7 million before the Nevada caucuses—we’re now raising it to $12 million. I’m so grateful. Keep it up! https://t.co/9kjAWYs2zq
President Donald Trump’s job approval remains elevated at 49% in the latest Gallup poll, the same as in the previous poll and up five points from an early January poll conducted before Trump was acquitted by the Senate in his impeachment trial.
As in the prior poll, conducted Jan. 16-29, the approval rating from the Feb. 3-16 poll reflects record polarization for a single Gallup poll, with 87 percentage points separating the ratings of Republicans (93%) and Democrats (6%). Forty-three percent of independents approve of Trump, the highest rating for him among the group to date.
