Can We Get a Read Out?

So how much has Nigel Farage been in DC since the inauguration? “A lot,” one close Farage-watcher tells me. My snoop says he thinks Farage has visited DC at least three times since President Trump’s inauguration election. He was here on election night. He was the first foreign politician to meet with Trump after his win. He came to DC against in December. He came at least once in January for the inauguration. And he came again in February. That’s a lot. All of these trips have been about deepening Farage’s alliance with President Trump and his coterie. The last meeting that we know of between the two men was on February 26th when they dined together at Trump’s DC hotel. What business would Farage possibly have meeting secretly with Assange today?

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
