WASHINGTON (AP) — Restaurants helped revive the U.S. economy after the Great Recession of 2007-2009.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump's impeachment defense appears to have cleared the bar as far as his fellow Republicans are concerned. But its adherence to the facts is another matter.

WASHINGTON (AP) — There are lots of ways, it seems, to land on one of President Donald Trump's tariff hit lists.

43. Trump says China deal could wait until after 2020 election -

54. AP FACT CHECK: Trump's premature win on trade, Syria fiction -

WASHINGTON (AP) — It was a week of caustic rhetoric by President Donald Trump over Syria and the impeachment inquiry, and truth often took a beating.

55. AP FACT CHECK: Trump untruths on Ukraine, impeachment fight -

WASHINGTON (AP) — A whistle blew, an impeachment inquiry swung into motion and the president at the center of it all rose defiantly to his own defense, not always in command of the facts.
