    Huge rallies may signal emerging anti-Trump movement. Or not.

    The new lines of conflict in America were vividly drawn Saturday: A freshly revived protest movement has risen to greet a president acutely attuned to public opinion.  Not for decades, since 1960s protesters took to the streets against the Vietnam War, has a chief executive faced such visible opposition....

    Trump's inaugural cake was commissioned to look like Obama's, baker says

    Amid the glitz of President Donald Trump's inaugural festivities, one item stood out in particular late Friday night: a spectacular nine-tier cake that the new president and Vice President Mike Pence cut into with a sword.

    What to expect in President Trump's first 100 days in office

    President Donald Trump’s unorthodox quest for the White House was fueled by his disregard for convention and the nagging sense that he — and ultimately his supporters — were underestimated and disrespected.

    Five minutes with Patrick Mangin, director of one of Baltimore's coal terminals

    Patrick Mangin got his job, in part, thanks to his son's love of the Pittsburgh Penguins. The retired, 23-year Army infantry officer, who lived north of Philadelphia, wanted to get him great seats for a game, so he fished around on LinkedIn to see whether anyone he knew had a contact at CONSOL...

    TV finds a winning formula for Trump inauguration coverage

    Television’s days might be numbered in a digital world. But it still has an unrivaled ability to cover a wide range of events in a short space of time.

    Trump's raised fist of defiance

    After taking the oath of office as America's 45th president, Donald J. Trump proved that we can stop waiting for him to drop the act he put on during the campaign and become what we think of as presidential.
