President Trump said he has no second thoughts about blasting Rep. Ilhan Omar for her controversial comments about the 9/11 terror attacks while on a swing through the Democratic lawmaker’s home state of Minnesota.
Asked during an interview on Monday with KSTP-TV if he would apologize to Omar after the freshman lawmaker said his tweet led to death threats against her, the president said, “No. not at all.”
This is why he’s President.
Talk about ‘in your face.’ Trump is doubling down on moving the migrant surge exclusively to sanctuary cities, forcing leftists to put their money where their mouths are. Want to offer sanctuary to all comers and tell everyone how virtuous and wonderful you are, so unlike Trump? Fine, pay for it, and with 1.5 million unvetted migrants set to pour in, rest assured, the bill is going to be big.
Officials at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) blocked a White House proposal to spotlight Central American migration by busing the migrants into Democrats’ “sanctuary city” neighborhoods, according to the Washington Post.
The Mueller report is over. The economy is simply humming.
And President Trump’s job approval rating, according to Rasmussen’s daily tracking, is now 53%.
The week following Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s exoneration of President Trump was, as the president might say, “so beautiful, so yuge, so fantastic.”
And it’s not just Mueller. Persistent Trump antagonist Michael Avenatti has been indicted by the Southern District of New York (SDNY) for blackmail and fraud. The attempt by House Democrats to override the president’s veto of a resolution disapproving of his emergency powers failed. Network executives are now clueless about how to fill up time on shows once dedicated to goading Trump over Russia. All things considered, the president couldn’t have had a better week.
President Trump said Thursday that the FBI and the Justice Department will probe Chicago prosecutors’ handling of the Jussie Smollett case.
“FBI & DOJ to review the outrageous Jussie Smollett case in Chicago. It is an embarrassment to our Nation!” the president tweeted.
His tweet came several hours after a report by Chicago’s WLS-TV, citing law-enforcement sources, that the FBI launched a probe about the Windy City’s prosecutors secret deal to drop the 16-count indictment against the “Empire” actor.
Acting Pentagon chief Patrick Shanahan said Monday he had authorized $1billion to build part of the wall sought by President Trump along the U.S.-Mexico border – prompting Donald Trump Jr to exclaim that ‘Christmas has come early’.
The Department of Homeland Security asked the Pentagon to build 57 miles of 18ft fencing, build and improve roads, and install lighting to support Trump’s emergency declaration as concerns the border.
Shanahan ‘authorized the commander of the US Army Corps of Engineers to begin planning and executing up to $1billion in support to the Department of Homeland Security and Customs and Border Patrol,’ a Pentagon statement read.
On Thursday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order to protect free speech on college campuses.
“In America, the very heart of the university’s mission is preparing students for life as citizens in a free society, but 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,” the president said.
He mentioned the case of Hayden Williams, a field representative for the Leadership Institute who got punched in the face in Berkeley, Calif.
The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Trump administration Tuesday, allowing federal officials to detain and deport illegal immigrants after they have served their time in the U.S. for other crimes.
We have the Justin and Ahmed show.
President Trump went to bat for Fox News host Jeanine Pirro, who has gotten backlash for her controversial comments about a Muslim House member, by calling on the cable network to return her show to the air after it was replaced Saturday.
“Bring back @JudgeJeanine Pirro. The Radical Left Democrats, working closely with their beloved partner, the Fake News Media, is using every trick in the book to SILENCE a majority of our Country,” Trump wrote on Twitter Sunday morning in a series of postings about Pirro.
President Donald Trump vetoed a bill designed to block his emergency declaration at the Southern Border on Friday, in a ceremony at the White House.
“Today, I am vetoing this resolution,” Trump said. “Congress has the freedom to pass this resolution and I have the duty to veto it.”
The president defied Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Congressional Democrats, and the “dirty dozen” Senate Republicans who joined them.
Donald Trump is on Monday expected to request an extra $8.6 billion (£6.6 billion) to fund his border wall with Mexico, setting the scene for another showdown with Democrats as he continues to attempt to fulfill his signature campaign pledge.
The US president will reportedly ask Congress for the extra money when he unveils his 2020 federal budget blueprint.
If approved, the money would be in addition to the $8 billion he has already secured, in part, by declaring a national emergency on the border.
NATIONAL HARBOR, MARYLAND — President Donald Trump treated Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) crowds with a speech that lasted over two hours on Saturday.
The speech was certainly the longest CPAC speech ever given by a president of the United States and the longest speech ever at CPAC. It was also described as the longest speech of his presidency.
Trump stopped to hug the American flag after he took the stage at 12:14 p.m. EST to his favorite American anthem, “Proud to Be an American” by Lee Greenwood.

Wielding a weapon made of dollar bills, tackling Barack Obama, challenging George Soros to an arm wrestle — Donald Trump is the hero of a Tirana art show by an Albanian painter who considers the US president an “idol.”
The 61-year-old artist, Avni Delvina, says the work is his response to international media’s broadly negative reaction to the Republican president’s unorthodox approach to politics.
“It is the product of two years of work from my strong anger about the reactionary attack on Trump,” Delvina told AFP, describing the former reality TV star and real estate tycoon as a “free spirit.”
