A bunch of new stories about the “Trump Effect” out in the news today…
Starbucks employees are enjoying the windfall from the recent Trump-led GOP tax cuts.
All employees will soon be able to earn paid sick time off, and the company’s parental leave benefits will include all non-birth parents. Starbucks Corp. said Wednesday that the changes affect about 150,000 full-time, part-time, hourly and salaried employees, most of whom work as baristas or shop managers. The new benefits apply to workers at more than 8,200 company-owned stores but not at the 5,700 licensed shops like those found inside supermarkets.
American Family Insurance will begin boosting their investments in the USA, thanks to the tax cuts.
The company will use the tax reform to enhance employee benefits and reinforce the company’s commitment to its people for putting customers first and remaining an employer of choice. In the longer term, customers are expected to benefit, too, with the tax savings impacting pricing.

Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is very angry and she’s not being quiet about it. Haley told Politico that a disgusting rumor instigated by the known liar, Michael Wolff, was completely false. What’s the rumor? Apparently, Wolff wants people to believe that Haley and Trump are having an affair.
Haley has been at the center of a Washington parlor game over who Wolff was hinting the president was ‘f***ing’ after he made the explosive claim on an HBO program that the president is currently having an affair.
The former South Carolina governor said during a Politico podcast interview that the rumor, which the author freely fed last week, is ‘highly offensive’ and ‘disgusting.’
‘It is absolutely not true,’ she fumed.
