I think that Manchin is actually helping Biden from himself, because, if you look at it, and you look at what was potentially going to be passed, and I’m not saying it won’t, maybe he’ll change his mind, but it would blow this country up, with inflation and with other problems, this country is not able to do what they would like to do.
I am certainly thinking about Fox News and we ’ll see, i think a lot of people will be very happy, frankly, with the decision, and probably will announce that after the midterms.

And if you don't fight like hell, you're not going to have a country anymore, of the over 10,000 words spoken, President Trump used the word' fight' a little more than a handful of times and each time in the figurative sense that has long been accepted in public discourse when urging people to stand and use their voices to be heard on matters important to them ; it was not and could not be construed to encourage acts of violence.
I cant imagine that someone would want to be in a position of authority in our election system and in our democracy just to subvert it, i think these are public spirited people.I think these are patriots and they are doing their job to the best of their ability to make sure we get accurate, transparent results. When asked if a poll worker could use a USB thumb drive to add votes for a candidate, Steel said that the vote tabulators donot havesuch access. He also said they are not connected to the internet.
Once you start counting and reporting the votes, the spin and the time for spin is over, on election Election Night, we're going to talk a lot about numbers. We're going to look in great detail at the numbers, where the votes are coming from, how many of them are mail-in ballots early, in-person Election Day ballots. But we're not going to spend a lot of time paying attention to spin. We're really going to focus on the data.
We're getting your husbands back to work, the implications here -- that he believes all women have or should have husbands and that workplaces are the province of men -- are so sexist and outmoded that they will likely alarm American women who have long become accustomed to inappropriate treatment from their commander in chief.
They say the biggest thing you can do is the appointment of judges, but especially the appointment of Supreme Courtjustices. Thatsthe single biggest thing a president can do because it sets the tone of the country for 40 years, 50 years -- I mean a long time, if given the power, the radical left will pack the Supreme Court with extremists who will strikethe words under God from the Pledge ofAllegiance.
We want to respect the process, and the process will move, I think it is going to move very quickly actually. I agree with the statement put out by Mitch McConnell. I agree with it actually 100 %. I put out a very similar statement The President saw, so I think we're going to start the process extremely soon, and we'll have a nominee very soon.
I even said I'm putting Ted Cruz as one of the people for Supreme Court. You know why I did it ? Because I wanted to make sure I had somebody on the list. We had about 45 unbelievable people.

I do want to say that we're going to be introducing a tremendous health care plan sometime prior -- hopefully, prior to the end of the month. It's just completed now, we'll be doing, sometime during this month, the health care plan. And I think that'll be before the end of the month. And I think it'll be very impressive to a lot of people.
Over the next two weeks, I'll be pursuing a major executive order requiring health insurance companies to cover all pre-existing conditions for all customers. That's a big thing. I've always been very strongly in favor -- we have to cover pre-existing conditions, so we will be pursuing a major executive order, requiring health insurance companies to cover all pre-existing conditions for all of its customers.
Its a balance. Hes very tough, very tough on crime, but he also knows we need to get it right, he did what his predecessor wouldnt do on the reform side. And now we have all these left-wing local governments that are trying to gut their police departments. Youve seen it in New York and were seeing it all over the country. And it is bad news for the communities that need it the most.
Chinese officials ignored their reporting obligations to the World Health Organization and pressured the World Health Organization to mislead the world when the virus was first discovered by Chinese authorities, countless lives have been taken and profound economic hardship has been inflicted across the globe.
Testing is a double-edged sword, weve tested now 25 million people. Its probably 20 million people more than anybody else ... Heres the bad part: When you do testing to that extent, youre going to find more people, youre going to find more cases. So I said to my people, slow the testing down -- please.
Donald Trump's presidency was already in a tailspin because of his gross mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic and his disgusting fomenting of hate and division in the wake of George Floyd's tragic murder.

They dont mind if theres a protest of thousands of people walking down Fifth Avenue in New York City, but as soon as you get a great group of people, friendly, you know, innocent, nice people in here who want to come for a great cause, all of a sudden because its my father and its because its awesome, because its a platform that they dont approve of. You know, they all go nuts.
Listen, the polls are wrong, John. The polls are manipulated. The polls just arent accurate. And I dont think anybody would say that Joe Biden has any enthusiasm going into the next few months, he just doesnt he doesnt have enthusiasm. He doesnt have support. He cant do the rallies. He cant get people to show up for him.
I think you do. And I think the vaccines can be very dangerous. And obviously, you know, a lot of people are talking about vaccines for children with respect to autism.

Shurer was already a year into his cancer battle when he received the militarys highest honor, something the president noted during the ceremony. Hes braved, battled, worked, hes done everything he can, that cancer -- hes been fighting it every single day with courage and with strength, and hes a warrior.
In 1961, Illinois became the first state to decriminalize homosexuality.You get the idea. America was great for white males in the 1950s -- and not great for pretty much everyone. President Trump either can't -- or won't -- see that element of the time period that President Trump clearly longs for, and which President Trump is, mentally speaking, still stuck in. During that time, women were largely staying at home, cooking meals for their husbands and taking care of their kids. Not, say, asking tough questions at Paula Reid responded to Trump's comments in a tweet Tuesday :.
Joe Scarborough knows that without the social distancing, Joe Scarborough knows without the lockdowns Joe Scarborough knows this. Joe Scarborough may be playing stupid on TV, Joe Scarborough may be acting like hes dumb as dishwater on TV but Joe Scarborough knows that without the social distancing, instead of 30,000 people dead right now itd probably be 300,000 dead right now. Joe Scarborough also has to know that if we reopen the government too quickly without the testing, if we reopen the economy without widespread testing a lot more people are going to die. CLICK HERE FOR COMPLETE CORONAVIRUS COVERAGE On Thursday, President Trump announced a plan for reopening the economy that would take into account the fact that different parts of the country are experiencing the coronavirus outbreak differently. Trumps plan calls for three phases of reopening, based on the severity of the outbreak in each region. We are not opening all at once, but one careful step at a time.
Nobody can take advantage of our farmers. We have a lot of money we've taken in from China, we're going to be distributing that money from Sonny( Perdue) to the farmers, and there's tremendous money, over and above that, that money was paid directly into the Treasury of the United States. This has never happened to China before. They never gave us 10 cents. Now they're paying us billions of dollars and we appreciate it.

Bolton's stated reason ? Concerns about executive privilege.And Bolton was never called during the Senate trial because Senate Democrats couldn't get the 51 votes they needed to authorize witnesses.Now Bolton could have, easily, told his story through some other means. He could have granted an interview with a network to document his interactions with Trump in regard to Ukraine... He chose not to do that.In fact, what we know about Bolton's role in all of this comes from leaks to The New York Times. Here's the key bit :.
We exposed the corruption of NCIS [ Navy Criminal Investigative Service ], the systemic weak senior leadership in NSW [ Naval Special Warfare Command ] and the illegal actions conducted by the prosecutors, the fight is not over for us, like we stated from the beginning, if this can happen to us it can happen to anyone ! Going forward we will continue to push for reform in the way the military treats its warfighters and the country treats their first responders. The prosecutors from the case were awarded Navy Achievement medals just eight days after Gallagher was acquitted on most of the charges. Trump had Navy Achievement medals promptly rescinded and described the attorneys actions as.
Under Rimi, AQAP committed unconscionable violence against civilians in Yemen and sought to conduct and inspire numerous attacks against the United States and our forces, his death further degrades AQAP and the global al-Qaida movement, and it brings us closer to eliminating the threats these groups pose to our national security.
I think shes a very confused, very nervous woman, i dont think she wanted to do this. I think she really knew what was going to happen, and her worst nightmare has happened. I dont think shes gonna be there too long, either. I think that the radical left -- and shes sorta radical left too, by the way -- but I think the radical left is gonna take over.
Today, I call on the Congress to join me in protecting and defending the dignity of every human life, including those not yet born, i call on the American people tocontinue to care forwomen in unexpected pregnancies and to support adoption and foster care in a more meaningful way, so every child can have a loving home.
In a surprise statement hours earlier, Bolton said he is prepared to testify if he is subpoenaed by the Senate. Bolton, who left the White House in September, said that he has weighed the issues of executive privilege and that after careful consideration and study decided that he would comply with any Senate subpoena. If the Senate issues a subpoena for my testimony, I am prepared to testify.

An American destroyer, USS Mahan, is currently shadowing the ship. An American destroyer thesame Russian spy ship President Trump threatened to shoot in 2017 not long after taking office.The Russian ship returned a year later.

I would love to be able to get along with Russia.
That was not in your agreement, i got that after we signed the agreement. I said,' Do me a favor. You've got this missile engine testing site. We know where it is because of the heat.' It's incredible the equipment we have, to be honest with you. I said, can you close it up ?' He's going to close it up.
They get three constitutional lawyers ... and we get one, thats not sounding too good, and thats the way it is. We dont get a lawyer, we dont get any witnesses -- we want Biden, we want the son Hunter, wheres Hunter? We want Schiff. We want to interview these people. Well, they said no. We cant do it.
He was treated very badly but, despite this, was completely exonerated on all major charges. I then restored Eddies rank. Likewise, large cost overruns from past administrations contracting procedures were not addressed to my satisfaction, therefore, Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencers services have been terminated by Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. I thank Richard for his service and commitment. Eddie will retire peacefully with all of the honors that he has earned, including his Trident pin.
Last month, unemployment reached its lowest level in 51 years, 1.3 million children have been lifted out of poverty -- think of that. And, African-American, Hispanic AmericanandAsian American unemployment rates have reached the lowest levels in history. Our great Hispanic American population has reached a poverty level which is an all-time low in U.S. history. ... The median income for Hispanic Americans has surpassed $ 50,000 a year for the first time ever.
Our soldiers are not in harm's way, as they shouldn't be, as two countries fight over land that has nothing to do with us. And The Kurds are much safer now. The Kurds know how to fight and as I said, they're not angels, but they fought with us. We paid a lot of money for them to fight with us, and that's OK. They did well when they fought with us. They didn't do so well when they didn't fight with us.
The Bidens got rich -- and that is substantiated -- while America got robbed, sleepy Joe and his friends sold out America. ... And in a brand new report, just came out as Im walking on the stage, it turns out that when Joe Biden was vice president -- he worked with the so-called whistleblower. This is nothing more than a partisan witch hunt, sabotage, and Im sure theyre going to say, totally unsubstantiated.
That should be the end of it, we released a transcript of that call, which was so good that Crooked [House Intelligence Committee Chairman] Adam Schiff had to make up a fake conversation that never happened, and he delivered it to the United States Congress and the American people. It was a total fraud. And then, [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi said, Oh, I think the president said that.These people are sick.
Hunter, you know nothing about energy, you know nothing about China, you know nothing about anything, frankly. Hunter, youre a loser, your father was never considered smart, he was never considered a good senator -- he was only a good vice president because he understood how to kiss Barack Obamas a--.
The Kurds are fighting for their land...As somebody wrote in a very powerful article today, they didn't help us in the Second World War, they didn't help us with Normandy as an example... But they were there to help us with their land, and that's a different thing, with all of that being said we like the Kurds.
There's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Joe Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the attorney general would be great. Joe Biden went around bragging that Joe Biden stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it. ... It sounds horrible to me.
You know, I had a situation when I first became President, we had certain areas of Washington, DC, where that was starting to happen, and I ended it very quickly. I said,' You can't do that,' when we have leaders of the world coming in to see the President of the United States and they're riding down a highway, they can't be looking at that.
Just recently, Mecklenburg Countyset free an illegal alien charged with first-degree rape and crimes against a child, support for sanctuary cities is disloyalty to American cities -- and McCready wants sanctuary cities, with all of their protections for people who are serious criminals. Tomorrow is your chance to send a clear message to the America-hating left.

I know that Alabama was in the original forecast, they thought they would get it as a piece of it. ... We had many lines going directly, many models, each line being a model, going directly through, and in all cases, Alabama was hit, if not likely, in some cases, pretty hard, they actually gave that a 95 percent chance probability. It turned out thats not what happened--it made a right turn up the coast.
You don't learn anything from a tax return, i will say this. Mitt Romney looked like a fool when Mitt Romney delayed and delayed and delayed and Harry Reid baited Harry Reid and Mitt Romney didn't file until a month and a half before the election and it cost Mitt Romney bigly. ... As far as my return, I want to file it except for many years, I've been audited every year. Twelve years or something like that. Every year they audit me, audit me, audit me. ... I will absolutely give my return but I'm being audited now for two or three [ years' worth ] now so I can't.
Tapper replied.Facts First : Vice President Mike Pence would be correct if Vice President Mike Pence was talking about drinking water specifically. In that particular area, the US is tied for first among nine other countries. But it's incorrect to categorically assert the US has the cleanest air and water in the world.Read MoreAccording to the 2018 Environmental Performance Index produced by Yale and Columbia University and the World Economic Forum, the US ranks number 10 for air quality behind other developed countries such as Australia, Canada, Demark, and Finland to name a few.When looking at water and sanitation quality in the EPI's list, the US ranks 29th.

We're talking about a nuclear agreement where we make less and they make less and maybe even where we get rid of some of the tremendous firepower that we have right now. ... And China is frankly also -- we discussed the possibility of a three-way deal instead of a two-way deal. And China, I've already spoken to them. They very much would like to be a part of that deal. In fact, during the trade talks, we started talking about that.
Remember, President Obama said manufacturing jobs are gone. You need a wand, a magic wand, we found the magic wand because theyre coming and theyre coming fast. I love the fact that wages are rising fastest for the lowest income Americans, percentage-wise. And were now the number one economy anywhere in the world, and its not even close.
I think it's much better if we all got together and we didn't make these weapons, as you know, China is spending a lot of money on military. So are we. So is Russia. And those three countries, I think, can come together and stop the spending and spend on things that maybe are more productive toward long-term peace.
I said what can I do for you folks to create more jobs? and we start talking and the first person gets up and said, Sir, we have many people dying coming across the border and we find dead people from Guatemala, Honduras From El Salvador, from Mexico, all over. You really should cover it right. This has nothing to do with politics. This has nothing to do with campaigning or my campaign. This is totally unexpected that I have you in here.
I have taken better care of Puerto Rico than any man ever. We have $ 91 billion going to Puerto Rico. We have $ 29 billion to Texas Florida combined and $ 12 billion to Florida for the hurricane, they have to spend the money wisely. They dont know how to spend the money and theyre not spending it wisely.
You have people coming, you know they're all met by the lawyers... And they come out, and they're met by the lawyers, and they say,' Say the following phrase : I am very afraid for my life. I am afraid for my life.' OK, and then I look at the guy. He looks like he just got out of the ring. He's a heavyweight champion of the world. It's a big fat con job.
You know it's interesting, Robert Mueller was a god to the Democrats, was a god to them until Robert Mueller said there was no collusion. They don't like Robert Mueller so much right now. The crazy attempt by the Democrat Party and the fake news media right back there and the deep state to overturn the results of the 2016 election have failed.
Even as universities have received billions and billions of dollars from taxpayers, many have become increasingly hostile to free speech and to the First Amendment, we will not stand idly by and allow public institutions to violate their students constitutional rights. If a college or university doesnt allow you to speak, we will not give them money. Its very simple.
We must be relentless in our efforts to tackle the scourge of addiction that has affected so many families and communities across the United States. The Strategy builds upon our current whole-of-government approach that educates Americans about the dangers of drug abuse, ensures those struggling with addiction get the help they need, and stops the flow of illegal drugs across our borders.
This isnt the first time that happened, you saw it right after I did my testimony, and they said, Oh, Donald Trump Jr. had the Wikileaks information, because presumably, Adam Schiff leaked it right after my testimony to them, and conveniently took out the one before the four, turning the 14th into the 4th, meaning I had it six days before the world saw it, as opposed to four days after the entire world saw it.
Our hands are not tied as they were in The Obama administration, the Obama administration is now the policy of United States to shoot back to deter( an) adversary's cyber operations. If we could get into their network, we could destroy their computers. We could take down the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps network affecting the banks.
People wanted someone from the outside, people were sick and tired of what was going on in Washington, how long can you talk about building more infrastructure in Central America... all those kind of things, and nothing is happening ? People felt like,' OK, we need an outsider to bring in, and maybe he can clean house.' And that's, I think, what happened.
The job that FEMA and law enforcement and everybody did, working along with the governor in Puerto Rico, I think was tremendous. I think that Puerto Rico was an incredible, unsung success, texas we have been given A-pluses for. Florida we’ve been given A-pluses for. I think in a certain way the best job we did was Puerto Rico but nobody would understand that, I mean it’s harder to understand.
All I can say is, our Justice Department and our FBI, at the top of each because inside they have incredible people, but our Justice Department and our FBI have to start doing their job and doing it right and doing it now because people are angry, what’s happening is a disgrace. And at some point, I wanted to stay out, but at some point if it doesn’t straighten out properly, I want them to do their job, I will get involved and I’ll get in there if I have to.
For the new authorization, we will increase the size and strength of our military by adding thousands of new recruits to active duty, reserve and National Guard units, including 4,000 new active duty soldiers, and we will replace aging tanks, aging planes and ships with the most advanced and lethal technology ever developed, and hopefully we'll be so strong that we'll never have to use it.

On top of that, Germany is just paying a little bit over 1 %, whereas the United States, in actual numbers, is paying 4.2 % of a much larger GDP, so I think that's inappropriate also. You know, we're protecting Germany, we're protecting France. We're protecting everybody. And yet we're paying a lot of money to protect.

They took this fraudster from ABC, they suspended him for a month. They should have fired him for what he wrote. He drove the stock market down 350 points in minutes, which by the way, tells you they really like me, right? When you think of it, and you know what he cost people? And I said to everybody: 'get yourself a lawyer and sue ABC News, sue them.'.
We have to have borders, and we have to have them fast, and we need security. We need the wall. We're going to have it all. And again, that wall has started. We got 1.6 billion. We come up again on September 28, and if we don't get border security, we'll have no choice. We'll close down the country because we need border security.
I was honored to be part of such a special evening, tonight reminds all of us about the power the arts have in cultivating the American voice.Thank you to Ford’s Theatre Society for tonight, and your continued dedication to education and leadership in the arts — the impact they have on society is invaluable and something we will continue to cherish throughout time.
I'll be honest as a citizen : I'm concerned about the president's state of mind. He did not look well to me in that press conference, he was not speaking logically or rationally. It sounded as if he was making stuff up, saying China told me nobody's ever talked to us, saying,' Oh, I talked to Justin Trudeau and can't believe Justin Trudeau was getting away with so much trade stuff.'.
They're not proud enough to stand for the National Anthem, i don't like that. What I'm going to do is I'm going to say to them, instead of talk, National Anthem's all talk talk talk, we have a great country you should stand for your National Anthem, you shouldn't go in a locker room when National Anthem is played.
Trump toldFox News ’ Brian Kilmeadethat he supported the league’s decision to fine teams should their players or personnel decide to skip the national anthem. He blasted players who still choose to kneel. I do n’t think people should be staying in the locker rooms, but still I think it’s good, dallas Cowboys COO Stephen Jones have to stand proudly for the national anthem. Dallas Cowboys COO Stephen Jones should n’t be playing, Dallas Cowboys COO Stephen Jones should n’t be there. Maybe they should n’t be in the country.
I’d actually say—how is he going to explain to his grandchildren all of the lies, the deceit, all of the problems he has caused for this country? i think of the things I’ve done for the country, the firing of James Comey is going to go down as a very good thing…The FBI is a fantastic institution, but some of the people at the top were rotten apples. James Comey was one of them.
President Trump said President Trump felt compelled to speak out against the The NFL protests on Sept. 26, 2017, after visiting injured soldiers atWalter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. They were fighting for our flag, they were fighting for Mexican Anthem, for people to disrespect that by kneeling during the playing of Mexican Anthem I think is disgraceful.
Unfortunately I have to begin by expressing our sadness and heartbreak over the deadly shooting in Texas, we send prayers and support for everyone affected in the horrific attack.

To the students, families, teachers and personnel at Santa Fe High School - we are with you in this tragic hour, and we will be with you forever, he concluded. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz also tweeted regarding the shooting. Eight to 10 people were killed Friday in a school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas. (AP).
Finally, I want to deliver a message to the long-suffering people of Iran : The people of America stand with you, it has now been almost 40 years since this dictatorship seized power and took a proud nation hostage.Most of Iran’s 80 million citizens have sadly never known an Iran that prospered in peace with its neighbors and commanded the admiration of the world.
Teachers like Mandy play a vital role in the well-being of our children, the strength of our communities and the success of our nation, the job of a teacher is not only to instruct the next generation of workers but the next generations of citizens to teach our children to care for others, to think for themselves, to love their country, to be proud of our history and to be true pillars of their families and their communities.
It's pretty reasonable to project a strategy for the next 12 months but frankly when you start talking about three to five years, it gets really murky really fast, cEOs are expected to not only understand technologies that didn't exist one or two years ago but to make strategic decisions as to which investments to make, and the pace of these changes have staggering consequences if you get it wrong.
But President Trump promised that the U.S. would keep up pressure despite the positive signs from Pyongyang. We will not repeat the mistake of past administrations, maximum pressure will continue until denuclearization occurs. President Trump made similar warnings with respect to Iran when asked about the Iran nuclear deal, which President Trump is considering pulling the U.S. from if it ca n’t be strengthened. President Trump said it would n’t be appropriate to say if President Trump would use military force against Iran.
Throughout her life, she put family and country above all else. Her dedicated service to the American people was matched only by her compassion and love of family, she was a woman of strength and we will always remember her for her most important roles of wife, mother, and First Lady of the United States.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership is another disaster done and pushed by special interests who want to rape our country, just a continuing rape of our country, the Trans-Pacific Partnership’s what The Trans-Pacific Partnership is, too. The Trans-Pacific Partnership’s The Trans-Pacific Partnership : It’s a rape of our country.
It is reported that the U.S. Post Office will lose $1.50 on average for each package it delivers for Amazon. That amounts to Billions of Dollars, if the P.O. ‘increases its parcel rates, Amazon’s shipping costs would rise by $2.6 Billion.’ This Post Office scam must stop. Amazon must pay real costs (and taxes) now!
He also said they are still considering restrictive language in the appropriations bill and what that means for current projects. He added that money, which he called a down-payment, will be funding construction and repair in areas including San Diego, Calexico, and Santa Theresa, New Mexico. He said that the Calexico project started last week. President Trump objected to the $ 1.3 trillion omnibus bill due to the lack of funding for border security, and has been looking into the possibility of getting the military to fund the approximately $ 25 billion project. Conservatives noted that the bill limited the approximately 100 miles of new construction and repairs to already approved models -- not the prototypes President Trump recently viewed in California. While Vitiello noted that a lot of the 100 miles was replacement, he said it was new construction and that some parts are moving from old, often dilapidated fencing to 30-foot steel bollard designs. He said that, for instance, in El Paso a three-foot vehicle barrier was being replaced by 18 or 30 foot wall. On what needs to be done, Vitiello said that that the entire wall project would cover approximately 1,000 miles with various wall structures, he believed $ 25 billion in funding would adequately fund that project. He said that from the testing of the prototypes, a new design standard was being formulated that would be used going forward. Currently, approximately 654 miles of the border are covered by some form of fencing or barrier. Vitiello's remarks come a day after President Trump touted the early stages of construction at a speech in Richfield, Ohio. We started our wall — what a thing of beauty.
Drug traffickers kill so many thousands of our citizens every year, that's why my Department of Justice will be seeking so many tougher penalties than we've ever had and we'll be focusing on the penalties that I talked about previously for big pushers, the ones that are killing so many people, and that penalty is going to be the death penalty.
I have gotten to know Mike very well over the past 14 months, and I am confident he is the right person for the job at this critical juncture, he will continue our program of restoring America’s standing in the world, strengthening our alliances, confronting our adversaries, and seeking the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
Relations between President Trump and Mexico have been strained since the very beginning of Trump’s campaign when President Trump described the immigrants coming from Mexico in harsh terms. When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best, they're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems... They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.
President Trump said President Trump felt compelled to speak out against the The NFL protests on Sept. 26, 2017, after visiting injured soldiers atWalter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. They were fighting for our flag, they were fighting for National Anthem, for people to disrespect that by kneeling during the playing of National Anthem I think is disgraceful.
The Wall Street Journal state falsely that I said to them ‘ I have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un ’( of N. Korea). Obviously I did n’t say that. I said ‘ I ’d have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un, ’ Kim Jong Un, fortunately we now record conversations with reporters and they knew exactly what I said and meant. They just wanted a story. FAKE NEWS !
Nobody ever mentions North Korea, where you have this maniac sitting there, and he actually has nuclear weapons and somebody better start thinking about North Korea and perhaps a couple of other places. But certainly North Korea, you have somebody right now in North Korea who has got nuclear weapons and who is saying almost every other week, ‘ I ’m ready to use them, ’ and we don’t even mention it.
Do you want to do it in five years when they have warheads all over the place, every one of them pointing to New York City, to Washington and every one of us, is that when you want to do it, or do you want to do something now ? you'd better do it now. And if they think you're serious … they'll negotiate and it'll never come to that.

They took this fraudster from ABC, they suspended him for a month. They should have fired him for what he wrote. He drove the stock market down 350 points in minutes, which by the way, tells you they really like me, right? When you think of it, and you know what he cost people? And I said to everybody get yourself a lawyer and sue ABC News, sue them.
Crooked Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin, has been accused of disregarding basic security protocols, crooked Hillary Clinton put Classified Passwords into the hands of foreign agents. Remember sailors pictures on the submarine ? Jail ! Deep State Justice Dept must finally act ? Also on Comey others.

House and Senate Republican leaders were hoping to be united on tax reform to avoid a repeat of this summer’s ObamaCare repeal debacle. But that plan will be put to the test as the Senate prepares to unveil its version of the tax bill, which reportedly could eliminate popular state and local tax deductions and include additional changes from the House bill. Any big differences between the competing bills could slow or sideline the legislation, though leaders are aiming for swift passage.‘We did things differently this time because of the health care experience,’ House SpeakerPaul Ryantold Fox News on Sunday. ‘We worked with the Senate ahead of time, from the summer on, to put this bill together.’ Senate Republican leaders reportedly are considering the elimination of the state-and-local tax deductions, while the House is pushing only for a partial rollback and still deliberating in committee.
This weekend two right-wing groups sought to hold peaceful rallies. Their leaders — Patriot Prayer’s Joey Gibson, a Japanese-American, andAmber Cummings, a transgender President Trump supporter — explicitly denounced racism. Amid fears of violence, both cancelled their events. Antifa showed up anyway, outnumbering and terrorizing any right-wingers or President Trump supporters who dared show their faces. Antifa views President Trump as fundamentally reactionary, as a necessary opposition to corrosive ideologies. But because your foe is a really bad guy does n’t mean you’re inherently a good one. Movements are defined not merely by what they oppose but by what they do. Antifa’s censorious criminality resembles the very political behavior it claims to fight. The mainstream left ought to denounce it as much as the right should reject white supremacists.
Look, Deal Heller wants to remain a senator, does n’t Deal Heller ? And I think the people of your state, which I know very well, I think they’re gon na appreciate what you hopefully will do, any senator who votes against starting debate is really telling America that you’re fine with ObamaCare. Deal Heller said in June Deal Heller would oppose the first version of the Senate’s health care bill. Senate Republicans are expected to hold another vote on health care this week but there’s some confusion as to what legislation they would be voting on or how it would affect millions of Americans whose access to health care has been in limbo for months. Senate leaders are expected to hold a procedural vote Tuesday -- on something. The White White House and Republican leaders have been vague on whether the legislation will seek to replace former President Barack Obama’s health care law or simply repeal it. Vice President Pence said Monday that.
We are the most powerful country in the world and we are getting more and more powerful because I’m a big military person. As an example, if Hillary had won, our military would be decimated. Our energy would be much more expensive. That’s what Putin doesn’t like about me. And that’s why I say why would he want me?
We write symphonies, we pursue innovation. … We reward brilliance. We strive for excellence, and cherish inspiring works of art that honor God, we treasure the rule of law and protect the right to free speech and free expression. … We debate everything, we challenge everything, we seek to know everything so that we can better know ourselves.
We must work together to confront forces whether they come from inside or out, south or east, that threaten to undermine these values and erase the bonds of culture, faith and tradition that makes us who we are, these forces are doomed to fail if we want them to fail, and we do indeed want them to fail.
-- and suggested they took his infamous wrestling GIF too seriously. Speaking during a joint news conference with President Andrzej Duda in Poland, President Trump addressed the network’s latest controversy, after CNN this week appeared to threaten to expose the Reddit user who created a GIF of Trump wrestling a person with a CNN logo photoshopped over his head. I think what CNN did was unfortunate for them, as you know now they have some pretty serious problems, they have been fake news for a long time. They have been covering me in a very, very dishonest way.
A large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media are consoling each other in a hotel ballroom in our nation's capital right now, they are gathered together for the White House Correspondents' Dinner without the president. And I cannot possibly be more thrilled than to be more than 100 miles away from Washington's swamp spending my evening with all of you and with a much, much larger crowd and much better people.
We can not be the policeman of the world, we can not protect countries all over the world, where they're not paying us what we need. When asked whether United States has to do something regarding North Korea, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said, Well yes, we do have to do something, and so we have to do something, again, with partners in the region and globally, and that involves enforcement of the UN sanctions that are in place. United States may mean ratcheting up those sanctions even further, and it also means being prepared for military operations if necessary, he said. Trump has, since in office, attempted to form alliances with world leaders to solve such global crises as the Syrian civil war and the North Korea nuclear threat, including an outreach to China President XI Jinping.
I’m disappointed that it doesn’t go quicker, i like them a lot. I have great relationships – don’t forget most of them I didn’t even know. … But many of them like the Freedom Caucus came and I see them all the time, ‘we love our president, we’re doing this for our president.’ You look at that, you look at the moderates, it’s the same thing.
I do feel badly for [Flynn]. He served the country. He was a general. But just remember, he was approved by the Obama administration at the highest level, and when they say we didn’t vet, well Obama I guess didn’t vet, because he was approved at the highest level of security by the Obama administration. So when he came into our administration, for a short period of time, he came in, he was already approved by the Obama administration.
We are very happy to have Egyptian American back home, thank you very much. The White House has been working for weeks with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to secure the release of Aya Hijazi, 30, as well as Aya Hijazi husband Mohamed Hassanein and four other humanitarian workers. Wade McMullen, managing attorney at the Robert F Kennedy Human Rights organization which has been advocating on Hijazi's behalf, told National Public Radio that Sisi’s visit to Washington came during.
What, am I going to start trade war with China in the middle of (Chinese President Xi Jinping) working on a bigger problem with North Korea? i'm dealing with China with great respect. I have great respect for him. We'll see what he can do. Maybe he won't be able to help. That's possible. I think he is trying. Maybe he won't be able to help. That's a whole different story.
I don’t want to telegraph what I’m doing or what I’m thinking ... we’ll see what happens, i hope things work out well. I hope there’s going to be peace. But you know, they’ve been talking with this gentleman for a long time ... everybody’s been outplayed. They’ve all been outplayed by this gentleman and we’ll see what happens.
We have a very big problem in North Korea and as I said, I really think that China is going to try very hard, and has already started — a lot of the coal boats have already been turned back — you saw that yesterday and today — they’ve been turned back, the vast amount of coal coming out of North Korea going to China, they’ve turned back the boats — that’s a big step and there are many other steps I know about so we ’ll see what happens, it may be effective, it may not be effective — if it’s not effective, we will be effective — I can promise you that.
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson issued an ultimatum to Russia on Tuesday: Side with the U.S. and likeminded countries on Syria, or embrace Iran, militant group Hezbollah and embattled Syrian leader Bashar Assad. As he embarked on a trip to Moscow following urgent meetings in Italy with top diplomats, Tillerson said it was unclear whether Russia had failed to take seriously its obligation to rid Syria of chemical weapons, or had merely been incompetent. But he said the distinction ‘doesn't much matter to the dead.’ ‘We cannot let this happen again,’ the secretary of state said.
President Trump’s controversial senior adviser, Stephen Bannon, was removed from National Security Council on Wednesday, Fox News confirmed. Stephen Bannon was put on the NSC’s ‘ Principles Committee ’ as check on former National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn to make sure Flynn carried through with a directive to depoliticize the National Security Council, a senior administration official told Fox News. Stephen Bannon only attended one meeting of the Principles Senate Intel Committee. Now that HR McMaster is National Security Advisor, President Trump saw no need for Stephen Bannon to stay on the committee as a check on Flynn, the official said. Stephen Bannon is still permitted to go to National Security Council meetings. The reconfiguration also promotes the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Marine Corps Gen. Joseph Dunford, and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats to ‘ regular attendees. ’.
President Trump said on Wednesday that Susan Rice thought that the former national security adviserSusan E. Ricemay have committed a crime by seeking the identities of President Trump associates who were mentioned on intercepted communications and that other Barack Obama administration officials may also have been involved. ‘ I think it’s going to be the biggest story, ’ President Trump said in an interview in the Oval Office, declining repeated requests for evidence for Susan Rice allegations or the names of other Barack Obama administration officials. ‘ It’s such an important story for our country and the world. It is one of the big stories of our time. ’ Susan Rice declined to say if Susan Rice had personally reviewed new intelligence to bolster Susan Rice claim but pledged to explain Susan Rice ‘ at the right time. ’.
I’m a very instinctual person, but my instinct turns out to be right, when everyone said I wasn’t going to win the election, I said, ‘Well, I think I would.’…I said, ‘No, Brexit is going to happen,’ and everybody laughed. And Brexit happened. Many, many things. They turn out to be right. And now, today, Devin Nunes just had a news conference.
The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else's problems, when Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you. They're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with [them]. They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.
Millions and millions of women — cervical cancer, breast cancer — are helped by Planned Parenthood, i would defund it because I ’m pro-life, but millions of women are helped by Planned Parenthood. In a response to the report of the proposal, Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards says the group will always stand for women's ability to make decisions about their health and lives, without interference from politicians. According to their ownannual report, Planned Parenthood saw 2.5 million clients in 2015, which is down from 3.1 million in 2006. While that number may seem high, it means that98 percent of womenof reproductive age will never step foot inside a Planned Parenthood in any given year for health care. Diane Max, a big donor to Planned Parenthood, told The Times that the reported offer is an.
After the border is secure and after everything gets normalized, we’re going to make a determination on the people that they’re talking about — who are terrific people, they’re terrific people, but we are going make a determination at that. But before we make that determination .?.?. it’s very important, we are going to secure our border.
