Melania Trump makes cameo as Palm Beach County GOP raises money at Mar-a-Lago




First lady Melania Trump and Gov. Rick Scott at a VIP reception in a picture snapped by an attendee.

First Lady Melania Trump was on hand Friday night at a GOP fundraiser held at the Trump-owned Mar-a-Lago resort after the Palm Beach County GOP paid $150,000 for the use of a ballroom.

While President Donald Trump skipped his weekend visit to what he calls “the Southern White House,” the First Lady made herself available for a meet and greet at a VIP reception preceding the fundraiser, reports the Palm Beach Post.

According to the Post, nearly 700 people paid $300 and more to attend the dinner, with Palm Beach County GOP Chairman Michael Barnett saying it cost around $150,000 to rent Trump’s ballroom.

Melania Trump made a cameo appearance Friday night as the Palm Beach County Republican Party held its annual Lincoln Day fundraising dinner at Mar-a-Lago.

Nearly 700 people paid $300 and up to attend the dinner, which Palm Beach County GOP Chairman Michael Barnett expected to raise a little less than $300,000 and cost around $15o,000 to rent Trump’s ballroom.

Melania Trump appeared for a few minutes at a pre-dinner VIP reception.

Gov. Rick Scott, Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera and Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam all attended and gave speeches. But the most rousing reception was given to Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, the African-American sisters from North Carolina known as “Diamond and Silk” for their viral videos supporting Trump.

Federal judge in Virginia disagrees with Hawaii judge, upholds Trump Travel Ban




Federal judge in Virginia disagrees with Hawaii judge, upholds Trump "Travel Ban"

The Associated Press describes the ruling as a “major victory” for the Trump administration.

A spokesman for the Department of Justice released a statement to the Hill saying, “As the Court correctly explains, the President’s Executive Order falls well within his authority to safeguard the nation’s security.”


The Hill


A federal judge in Virginia on Friday upheld President Trump's revised travel ban, delivering a small victory to the Trump administration as it seeks to strengthen its legal case for the executive order that has been blocked in other courts.

U.S. District Judge Anthony Trenga, who sits on the Eastern District Court of Virginia in Alexandria, rebuffed Muslim activists' request to temporarily bar the executive order on the grounds that the ban, which blocks travel to the United States for travelers from six predominately Muslim countries, acts as a discriminatory ban on a particular religious group.

The order, Trenga wrote in his opinion, falls well within the president's authority over the country's foreign policy and national security.

"The President has provided a detailed justification for the Order based on national security needs, and enjoining the operation of [executive order] would interfere with the President’s unique constitutional responsibilities to conduct international relations, provide for the national defense, and secure the nation," he wrote.

The ruling is welcome news for the Trump administration after a federal judge in Hawaii issued a ruling last week halting enforcement of the ban nationwide. The ban has also been put on hold by a federal judge in Maryland.

President Trump Participates in a Meeting with Medal of Honor Recipients



President Trump Participates in a Meeting with Medal of Honor Recipients


Remarks by the President in a Meeting with Medal of Honor Recipients


THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. This is a great honor for me. These are very, very brave people standing behind me. And we're here today to mark Medal of Honor Day, and it is my great privilege and high honor to welcome 25 Medal of Honor recipients to our White House. Very special honor, thank you all very much. (Applause.) I can say officially they are much braver than I am, okay? (Laughter.) Do you agree with that, General?

GENERAL MATTIS: I do, Mr. President. (Laughter.)

A MEDAL OF HONOR RECIPIENT: That's the right answer. (Laughter.)

THE PRESIDENT: It is the right answer.

One-third of the nation’s 75 living Medal of Honor recipients are with us. So it’s really -- that's a great tribute to all of us, a great tribute to our nation.

Each of you has risen above and beyond the call of duty in defense of our country, our people, and our flag. You have poured out your hearts, your sweat, and your tears like few others, and your blood -- most importantly your blood for the United States of America. We thank you, very much thank you.

You are the soul of our nation, and a grateful republic salutes you. Constantly we're saluting you. We have great admiration and respect, believe me. I know what you've been through.

We write your names and deeds in our national memory, and we will forever remember -- forever, forever and ever -- those who did not come home, but who died for the cause of freedom.

I want to thank the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation for preserving the incredible stories of our Medal of Honor heroes for future generations. Done a great job.

In this room hangs the portrait of our 26th President, Theodore Roosevelt. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for his courage alongside his band of Rough Riders at the Battle of San Juan Hill. You know about the Rough Riders, right? Right? Absolutely. His medal, which is also displayed here, is a reminder of how blessed we truly are to live in the land of heroes. And you are our greatest heroes.

To all of those gathered here today, and to all of those warriors who could not be with us, we thank you. Your acts of valor inspire us -- and they show us that there is always someone on the night watch to ensure a bright sun rises on America each and every morning.

God bless you. God bless our military and God bless the United States of America.

I want to just thank you very much for being here. It’s my great honor. (Applause.)

And as you know, we have David who is doing a great job at the VA. Already tremendous signs are happening, positive signs. And we have General Mattis who is doing a great job out there on the field, and you see a big difference. A lot of difference taking place over the last six weeks. So I want to thank General Mattis, too. And thank you all, and it’s great to have met you.

Oh, look at this.

A MEDAL OF HONOR RECIPIENT: Mr. President, on behalf of the Medal of Honor Society, I’d like to present a book “Portraits of Valor,” which contains all the signatures of the men in the room here, plus about 200 Medal of Honor recipients.

THE PRESIDENT: That is very nice. That is very nice. (Applause.)

I know these folks would like to stand behind me when I do this, but I don't want to put them in a political situation, so we're going to talk a little politics. And I think it might be unfair to them, so I’ll ask them to -- they're going to go over to the Roosevelt Room, and we’ll see you a little bit later. We're going to do -- unless the press doesn't want to talk politics? (Laughter.) No? Okay, well, they do. But I want to thank you all very much.

END

BREAKING: ‘Obamagate’ Blows Wide Open As WikiLeaks Releases Obama’s Wiretapping ‘Victim List’



BREAKING: ‘Obamagate’ Blows Wide Open As WikiLeaks Releases Obama’s Wiretapping ‘Victim List’

Ever since the Trump got into office, there has been a concerted effort on the part of Barack Obama to take him down. Shortly after learning of Obama’s violence resistance movement Organization For Action (OFA) where his minions around the country are being trained in Saul Alinsky tactics, we are now hearing that Obama wiretapped Trump Towers during the 2016 presidential race to spy on Trump. As this new scandal being dubbed “Obamagate” blows wide open, WikiLeaks just dropped another huge bombshell, revealing that Obama has made quite the history of wiretapping and hacking political opponents and friends alike.

Obama has a history of tapping & hacking his friends and rivals https://t.co/XbwyNSwTXg #NSA #PRISM #Merkel #Sarkozy #BanKiMoon #WTO #Trump pic.twitter.com/5CebcnkFgn

— WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) March 5, 2017


Obama’s cockiness throughout his presidency truly knew no bounds. But unfortunately for many people around the world, Obama’s antics weren’t just limited to spying Trump, as WikiLeaks just revealed. Obama bugged the meeting between UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and German Chancellor, Angela Merkel. Obama also intercepted a call between then French president, Sarkozy and Merkel. But that is just the very small beginning of Obama’s long list of spying. Check out this insane list compiled by WikiLeaks of all of Obama’s wire taps:

* The US National Security Agency bugged a private climate change strategy meeting; between UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin;

* Obama bugged Chief of Staff of UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for long term interception targetting his Swiss phone;

* Obama singled out the Director of the Rules Division of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), Johann Human, and targetted his Swiss phone for long term interception;

* Obama stole sensitive Italian diplomatic cables detailing how Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu implored Italy’s Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to help patch up his relationship with US President Barack Obama, who was refusing to talk to Netanyahu;

* Obama intercepted top EU and Japanese trade ministers discussing their secret strategy and red lines to stop the US “extort[ing]” them at the WTO Doha arounds (the talks subsequently collapsed);

* Obama explicitly targeted five other top EU economic officials for long term interception, including their French, Austrian and Belgium phone numbers;

* Obama explicitly targetted the phones of Italy’s ambassador to NATO and other top Italian officials for long term interception; and

* Obama intercepted details of a critical private meeting between then French president Nicolas Sarkozy, Merkel and Berluscon, where the latter was told the Italian banking system was ready to “pop like a cork”.

But the insanity doesn’t end there. In addition to the above list Obama also wiretapped individuals in the US media that were not reporting flattering information about him.

* In 2013 the liberal Washington Post expressed outrage after the revelation that the Justice Department had investigated the newsgathering activities of a Fox News reporter as a potential crime in a probe of classified leaks. The reporter, Fox News’ James Rosen and his family, were part of an investigation into government officials anonymously leaking information to journalists. Rosen was not charged but his movements and actions were tracked.

* Also in 2013, members of the Associated Press were also a target of the surveillance. The ultra liberal New Yorker even noted that “In moderate and liberal circles, at least, the phone-records scandal, partly because it involves the dear old A.P. and partly because it raises anew the specter of Big Brother, may well present the most serious threat to Obama’s reputation.”

* Reporter Sharyl Attkisson said in 2014 that her personal computer and CBS laptop were hacked after she began filing stories about Benghazi that were unflattering to the Obama administration. A source who checked her laptop said the hacker used spyware “proprietary to a government agency,” according to an article in the New York Post.

It’s truly startling how far Obama’s lawlessness goes! But what’s hilarious about all this is how Obama’s plans to take out our president are blowing up right in his anti-American face. And while Obama might have gotten away with his antics as president, Trump isn’t playing these little games and is already moving forward with a full investigation into Obama and his illegal antics.

President Trump Meets with the Congressional Black Caucus Executive Committee

Remarks by President Trump Before Meeting with Members of the Congressional Black Caucus

Cabinet Room


3:10 P.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I’m deeply honored to welcome the members of the Congressional Black Caucus to the White House. We’re going to have a lot of meetings over the years, and I very much appreciate you being here.

Throughout my campaign, I pledged to focus on improving conditions for African American citizens. This means more to me than anybody would understand or know. Every American child has a right to grow up in a safe community, to attend great schools, to graduate with access to high-paying jobs.

America has spent trillions and trillions of dollars overseas. I guess -- I heard just recently in the Middle East we’ve spent as of about two months ago $6 trillion -- $6 trillion, and you know where we are over there -- while neglecting the fate of American children in cities like Baltimore and Chicago and Detroit.

African American citizens have given so much to this country. They’ve fought in every war since the Revolution, and they’ve fought hard. They’ve lifted up the conscience of our nation in the march toward civil rights, enriched the soul of America -- and their faith and courage. And they’ve advanced our country in the fields of science, arts and medicine.

Elijah Cummings, who was here about two weeks ago, who I happen to think is a terrific man -- I don’t know if he’ll say that about me, but I will tell you, I really liked him a lot. And we were talking about drugs and prescription drugs and the costs. And you go to Europe, you go to Canada, you go to other countries and you buy them for a fraction of what you pay in this country. And that’s been a very big subject for him, and it’s a subject for me that is very important. And we’re going to either do it in healthcare -- which I think we’re going to do it in healthcare -- or we’re going to do it separately.

But we’re going to bid on drug prices, and we’re going to try and have the lowest prices anywhere in the world, from really the highest. And that’s not only the drugs, it’s prescription drugs. But you go out to stores and you go even -- in any community, rich or poor community, and you look at the kind of drug prices that we’re paying and it’s really unfair what’s happened in our country.

So we’re going to be instituting a very, very strong bidding process. We’ll probably need some legislation, but we’re going to do it regardless. We have to do it. And we’re going to get drug prices way down, way down. Some people think it’s as important as the healthcare measure, because people are being ripped off when they need their -- they need drugs, they need prescription drugs. And we’re going to take care of that situation.

So again, I very much appreciate you being here. It’s a tremendous honor for me. And we’re going to work on different things, and we’re going to see if we can get a lot accomplished.

And with that, let’s get going. And thank you all very much.

Ivanka Trump Gets West Wing Office






FOX News

An attorney and ethics adviser for Ivanka Trump said Monday that the first daughter will not have an official title, but will get a West Wing office, government-issued communications devices and security clearance to access classified information.


President Trump's daughter Ivanka will maintain a West Wing office, though she is not technically serving as a government employee and will not receive a salary, a senior White House official tells Fox News.

Since Trump took office, Ivanka has been a visible presence in the White House, where her husband, Jared Kushner, already serves as a senior adviser. On Friday, she participated in a meeting on vocational training with the president and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Jamie Gorelick, an attorney and ethics adviser for Ivanka Trump, told the Associated Press Monday that the first daughter will not have an official title, but will get a West Wing office, government-issued communications devices and security clearance to access classified information. Gorelick said Ivanka Trump would follow the ethics rules that apply to government employees.

"Our view is that the conservative approach is for Ivanka to voluntarily comply with the rules that would apply if she were a government employee, even though she is not," said Gorelick, who also helped Kushner with the legal strategy that led to his White House appointment. "The White House Counsel's Office agrees with that approach."

Ivanka Trump's role has already come under scrutiny because there is little precedent for a member of the first family with this kind of influence. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

A person with knowledge of Ivanka Trump's thinking, who requested anonymity to discuss private conversations, said she believes she can offer more independent perspective to her father by not serving as a White House staffer.

A popular surrogate for her father on the campaign trail, Ivanka Trump moved her young family to Washington at the start of the administration and signaled plans to work on economic issues, like maternity leave and child care. In a statement, she said: "I will continue to offer my father my candid advice and counsel, as I have for my entire life."

Federal anti-nepotism laws prevent relatives from being appointed to government positions. But the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel recently said the president's "special hiring authority" allowed him to appoint Kushner to the West Wing staff. Gorelick noted the office also made clear that the president could consult family members as private citizens, arguing that this is what Ivanka Trump will be doing.

The first daughter has sought to distance herself from the Trump Organization and her lifestyle brand, which offers shoes, clothing and jewelry. She has removed herself from executive roles and will have a more hands-off approach to the brand — though she will still get certain information and will have the power to veto new deals if they raise ethical red flags.

Richard Painter, a University of Minnesota law professor who served as President George W. Bush's chief White House lawyer on ethics, said that Ivanka Trump is effectively working as a White House employee. He said that "means that she, like her husband, has to follow the rules. It's not a huge deal if she stays out of things that affect her financial interests."

Painter said that means Trump should avoid anything to do with foreign trade with countries where her products are made, as well as recuse herself from real estate matters, given Kushner's family real estate business.

Trump says she will follow ethics rules and some of her financial information will be included in Kushner's official disclosures. She would have to disclose additional financial information if she were in a senior White House role, said Painter. That could include more details about her lifestyle brand, including her contracts and income.

Attorney Andrew Herman, who has advised lawmakers on ethics issues, said he thought the administration should make her role official. He said: "I think the right way to do that is to make her a special government employee. But that implicates all kind of formal and disclosure issues."

Ivanka Trump continues to own her brand. But she has handed daily management to the company president and has set up a trust to provide further oversight. The business cannot make deals with any foreign state, and the trustees will confer with Gorelick over any new agreements. Ivanka Trump will also be able to veto proposed new transactions.

Ivanka Trump has also barred the business from using her image to promote the products in advertising or marketing.

To be sure, the trustees are in the family — her husband's siblings Joshua Kushner and Nicole Meyer. But Gorelick said the goal of the trust wasn't to shield Trump from everything, but to remove her from the day-to-day operations. She also acknowledged that the arrangement did not eliminate conflicts, but she said Trump is trying to minimize them and will recuse herself from any administration decision-making that affects her business.

With the Trump Organization, Ivanka Trump has stepped down from a leadership role and will receive fixed payments rather than a share of the profits.

Ivanka Trump has also written a book, "Women Who Work," that will be released in May. The proceeds and royalties will be donated to charity, Gorelick said.

Friday evening, the supporters waved signs and MAGA flags and cheer for President Trump between Mar-a-Lago and West Palm Beach



Supporters of President Donald Trump have gathered near Mar-a-Lago to await the president’s arrival this evening.

The group of about two dozen people are on Bingham Island, the small piece of land between Mar-a-Lago and West Palm Beach along Southern Boulevard.


Friday evening, the supporters waved signs and MAGA flags at passersby. Maurice "Michael" Symonette, of Miami, traveled to Palm Beach with a group called "Blacks For Trump." Donning a faded "BlacksForTrump2020.com" shirt, Symonette said he hoped Trump's motorcade stopped again like it did briefly during his visit earlier this month.

"I think everything he's doing is wonderful," Symonette said.

Twelve-year-old Jackson Crosby waved to passing cars while carrying a large sign that said "Welcome Home President Trump." He said his grandmother made them for the whole family.

Gisela Crosby said they drove from Juno Beach on Friday. "I just think it's great that we get our children involved in helping make America great again," Crosby said.

President Donald Trump introduces Enda Kenny, the Taoiseach of Ireland, to Wilbur Ross, U.S. Secretary of Commerce





President Donald Trump introduces Enda Kenny, the Taoiseach of Ireland, to Wilbur Ross, U.S. Secretary of Commerce


Remarks by President Trump and Taoiseach Enda Kenny of Ireland at Friends of Ireland Luncheon


THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much, Speaker Ryan, for that wonderful toast -- although I’ve heard better jokes. (Laughter.) And thank you to all of our friends and distinguished members of Congress for joining us here today -- a great honor. And a really great honor to be with you, Vice President Pence. You have been terrific. (Applause.)

And all of our friends welcoming Taoiseach. That’s my new friend; he’s my new friend. Great guy. (Applause.) And, Fionnuala, you know, you are something very special. We sat, we talked, and I think we’re friends now too, right? And it’s really an honor. Thank you. Thank you. (Applause.) Thanks, Fionnuala. Appreciate it.

Also, the delegation members -- very, very special. Spent some time together, and we’re going to have a very, very great long-term relationship, as we would with Ireland anyway. But this is a very special group, so I very much appreciate it.

We’re here today to celebrate America’s commitment to Ireland and the tremendous contributions -- and I know it well -- the Irish immigrants and their descendants have made right here in the United States and throughout the world. The very first St. Patrick's Day parade -- I spent a lot of time at St. Patrick’s Day parades over the years, I will tell you that - was held in my hometown, New York City, on March 17th, 1762. With each subsequent year, the Irish people marched, passed another accomplishment, and celebrated another very hard-earned success. And they have had tremendous success all over the world, but in this country they have had tremendous success.

Over the years, they marched past the beautiful St. Patrick’s Cathedral, now an immortal monument to the faith of Irish Catholics in America. They celebrated their shared success in American society with the election of John F. Kennedy. (Applause.) They fought for America in war and combat. And their battlefield courage has earned admiration and acclaim throughout the world. They have great courage.

The proud tradition that started in 1762 has flourished and is now celebrated by Americans of all faiths and backgrounds all across our very beautiful and very special land. As we stand together with our Irish friends, I’m reminded of that proverb -- and this is a good one, this is one I like; I’ve heard it for many, many years and I love it -- “Always remember to forget the friends that proved untrue. But never forget to remember those that have stuck by you.” We know that, politically speaking. A lot of us know that, we know it well. (Applause.) It’s a great phrase.

The people of Ireland and the people of the United States have stuck together through good times and bad times. Over many centuries we have built a bond that thrives, inspires and endures. And with us, it’s going to be closer than ever before, I can tell you that. (Applause.)

So as we celebrate our shared history and our enduring friendship, let us commit ourselves to working together, as we will, to build on that bond for the benefit of our citizens for many more generations to come.

Thank you. God bless you. And may God always bless our deep and lasting friendship and relationship. We love Ireland and we love the people of Ireland. Thank you very much for being here. (Applause.)

SPEAKER RYAN: Thank you so much, Mr. President. It is now my pleasure to introduce An Taoiseach, our friend, Enda Kenny. (Applause.)

TAOISEACH KENNY: Thank you very much. Thank you. (Applause.) Thank you.

Mr. Speaker, Mr. President, Mr. Vice President, members of

Congress, ambassadors, friends of Ireland, distinguished guests.

(Speaks in Irish.)

I didn’t say anything disparaging about you there. (Laughter.) What I said was, it's a pleasure for me to be here, along with my wife, Fionnuala, to be amongst this august gathering. And on behalf of the government of Ireland and the people of Ireland, I wish you all a very happy St. Patrick's festival for you all.

They say the Irish have the capacity to change everything. I just saw the President of the United States read from his script, entirely. (Laughter and applause.) I was going to say "a change is coming." (Laughter.)

Paul, it's a pleasure. And thank you for your visit to Ireland when you called to see me in government buildings with your family and on your visit down to Kilkenny. When I had the privilege of speaking to the President on the telephone very shortly after his election, I said to him if it would be possible to continue this tradition, which began so many years ago, and he said, without hesitation, of course -- followed by the Vice President and U.S. Speaker.

This is a unique occasion for Ireland and for its people. To have the facility of being honored by the Speaker of the House, the access to the President of the United States, the Vice President, and most of the team is something that we really do cherish. It goes back a very long way from when Tip O'Neill and Ronald Reagan and all of the others put this together in the first place. So it's a really important day for us, and we're very grateful to stand between these two flags, united in history and so much.

I haven’t had the opportunity to present you with a particular piece of sculpture which is entitled "Arrival," by John Behan. It's a miniature -- but it's quite large -- of what stands at the United Nations in New York of the tale and the story and the history of Irish immigrants after the famine years.

So let me congratulate you, President Trump, on your election. You beat them all. (Laughter and applause.) Whatever they say, elections are tough-going. I know, I've been through 20 of them myself. (Laughter.) But the President and the Vice President and this administration now holds within its hands the responsibility of dealing with so many global international issues in a world that is changing so rapidly and that is so fragile in so many respects. And I know that you will do your utmost to work in the interests of our common humanity, and you will have the prayers and the support of the Irish people. And let me say to you, and the European Union -- and the work that you have to do in the times -- in the challenging times ahead.

We discussed the kind of driver that the President uses -- Titleist, 9-degree loft, Doonbeg, wind off the Atlantic. You have to roll the wrist at the top to get that shot straight. And during the course of this presidency, President Trump will visit Ireland, and he said he would put the sticks in the hold of Air Force One.

Anyway, let me just say a few words here about our country. We've come through a torrid time a number of years ago. When I took over the government back in 2011, we were blocked out of all the markets, the Troika were in town, our sovereignty was gone, our hope was gone; hemorrhage of immigration, and a falloff in all business right across every sector.

Now, because of the sacrifices of the people and tough choices made, we're in a different spot. Unemployment, which was 15.2, is now down to 6.6 percent and falling. Employment is the highest in 10 years. A growth rate of 5.2 percent last year. Fourth year running. Ireland is the fastest-growing country in Europe. Deficit eliminated next year. Two million-plus working now. I was accused in Cork three weeks ago of blocking up the Irish roads with people going to work. (Laughter and applause.) That's the challenge of success, I suppose.

It's fair to say, as you know, Mr. President, we've got 700 Irish firms, and 65 percent of the 700 firms working in America have a full-time presence in this market. And they now employ 100,000 people across 50 states. And that's because of our participation in the European Union and the confidence that our people have to expand now beyond their own shores. And this two-way conduit is to the mutual benefit of our people and of the United States. And let me say that Ireland and the European Union will never be anything but a friend to your country, to these United States here. (Applause.)

And I want you to understand that all administrations, over the last 40 years and beyond, have worked in the interests of the fragility of our country. We've had our troubles. We've had real difficulties. And George Mitchell spoke last night at the Ireland Funds about the contribution that both Europe, and particularly the United States, made towards putting that fragile peace together. We're glad to see Ian Paisley here and, indeed, Gerry Adams, who have had their difficulties. We have put it all together and have maintained a fragile peace. And that's why it's important that we recognize the contribution made by the United States to that peace, where we have no border and where people can live their lives as one would expect to contribute to their country and their economies. And all presidents and all administrations over the years have assisted us in that regard. (Applause.)

So we want to protect this peace process, and I know that you’re going to work with us in that context also. We have agreed with the British government that there would be no return to the border, as it used to apply years ago, with customs, posts on major roads, and every other road blown up or impassable because of sectarian violence that that brought with it. We have banished that. We want to see it remain banished. And the political agreement is no return to that kind of border of the past, and the challenge is to implement that in a way that works in the interests of the people North and South.

And let me say to you that as a member of the European Council, what we want to do is to work with America. I believe genuinely, with Europe having created 4.5 million jobs in the last three years, that we can work with the United States to create more employment here, create opportunities for so many millions of Americans. And it may well be that in a revised trade agenda, that we can do that to the mutual benefit of 500 million people in the European Union and your population here across the United States. We will work with this administration, Paul and Mr. President, Mr. Vice President, in the interests of everybody.

Thank you, Peter King, and thank you, Richard Neal -- I know you’re here somewhere -- for the work you’ve done over the years with the (inaudible). (Applause.) It may well be that it might be appropriate for the government and the administration to have a desk here in Washington which will associate itself with Northern Ireland, so that in the event of contact having to be made, that there’s a voice to answer that.

You had in the past envoys appointed to Northern Ireland on practically a full-time basis. I think we can work now as a priority to get this executive up and running in the next short period. But to have continued connection here with the administration would be very important, and I’m sure Peter and Rich will work at that.

I just want to say, I had a very good meeting this morning with the Vice President and with General John Kelly. Sitting at the table, we were hosted by the Vice President in the traditional breakfast in the Naval Observatory. Didn’t get much chance to eat the breakfast, I have to say; it’s one of the difficulties in politics -- it’s in front of you but you can’t get near it. (Laughter.) We did discuss the question of immigration, which is so important to the fabric of our people. And I know that in this country, this is an issue that the administration and the President are reflecting upon. And that’s something that, again, we will work with you diligently in this regard in the two sectors that we used to have a facility for E3 visas for young people who want to come to America and to work here. We discussed that very constructively this morning.

And secondly, as a part of the overall immigration reform that the Irish have contributed so much, it would be part of that. And we look forward to the works that will take place at the time ahead.

You might say that when Mike Pence’s grandfather landed here in Ellis Island in 1923, that the contribution had been made by so many Irish for so many years. It was in 1771 that the friendly Sons of St. Patrick were put together in Philadelphia, and one of their first honorary members was a young man called George Washington. And seven years later, he handed the first commission to a naval officer called John Barry, who was co-founder of the American Navy. And he was joined later by John Holland, who designed the first submarine. And he was followed by Louis Brennan, from my hometown, who had a major impact on the navigation systems for torpedoes.

And so many others, from Henry Ford, through music and culture, and so many other areas, that 22 members of the American Presidents who sat in the White House had either Scots or Irish blood in them. And you follow in that line, sir.

And I’d just like to say in finality, this is what I said to your predecessor on a number of occasions: We would like this to be sorted. It would remove a burden of so many people that they can stand out in the light and say, now I am free to contribute to America as I know I can. And that’s what people want. (Applause.)

I know you’ll reflect on this, but I’m always struck by the American National Anthem when it’s sung before the great occasions. And I suppose being an emotional Irishman, the hairs tingle at the back of your neck when you hear your own national anthem. But for us, when Old Glory waves, and you put your hand on your heart and you say, “The land of the free and the home of the brave,” ours is still as brave as ever, but maybe not as free. Because of the 4,000 Congressional Medals of Honor given out to the defense forces, over 2,000 go to the Irish Americans. So they fought in the Revolutionary War. They beat the daylights out of each other in Fredericksburg and Gettysburg and Yorktown, and other places, in Atlanta. They fought every war for America and died for America -- and will continue to do so. All they want is the opportunity to be free.

And this administration, working with Democrats and Republicans, I hope, can sort this out once and for all. And for future years, you determine what it is that you want to do. As George Mitchell said last evening, you can’t return to open immigration, but for the people who are here -- who should be here, might be here -- that’s an issue that I’m sure your administration will reflect on. And we in Ireland will give you every assistance in that regard.

There are millions out there who want to play their part for America -- if you like, who want to make America great. (Laughter.) Heard it before? Heard that before? (Applause.)

So I see Vicki here in front of me. We didn’t get as far as the Kennedy Center the other evening. I was talking to young people the other day, they were on about all the different things that are happening in the world, and they reminded me of one of JFK’s statements: “This is our planet. Together, we shall save or we shall perish in its flames.”

We have work to do. Let’s eat. Thank you. (Applause.)

President Trump‏ Attending a great listening session with Dept Vet Affairs


President Trump‏ Attending a great listening session with Dept Vet Affairs in the Roosevelt Room.


We are going to take care of our VETS!


Remarks by President Trump and Veterans Affairs Secretary Shulkin at Veterans Affairs Listening Session


THE PRESIDENT: A special group of people. Very special to me, very important. And I want to thank you all for being here and for your work on behalf of our nation’s veterans, our great, great people, our veterans.

We’re all united by a very common mission: We will protect those who protect us. I’ve been saying that a lot over the last two years at rallies and speeches. We will protect those who protect us, and that’s just starting, because I think the veterans have not been treated fairly. And David and a group of brilliant, brilliant doctors and businessmen are forming a board, and you’ve got the most talented people that I’ve ever seen working with you. This is -- no more games going to be played at the VA.

And I want to thank David, your Secretary -- your new Secretary, who’s going to be so outstanding. I think he actually passed 100 to nothing. When I heard that vote I said, where did that come from? A hundred to nothing, right? Passed 100 to nothing -- for bringing your vision, experience and determination to the crucial task of reforming the VA and ensuring care for our returning heroes and warriors.

And tonight I’m having a major meeting with some of the people that we put on a board. Ike Perlmutter is an amazing man -- Marvel -- is one of the great, great businessmen of our time, and others -- we’re having a meeting tonight at what we call affectionately the Southern White House. Seems to be the most convenient location. Everybody always wants to go to the Southern White House. So are you going to be at that meeting? You heard about it, right? It’s going to be great -- all about the VA.

The VA’s mission statement is engraved in the plaques outside its headquarters. It reads: “To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow and his orphan.” And that was stated by Abraham Lincoln. That was Lincoln’s pledge -- called Lincoln’s pledge. But for too many veterans, this hasn’t been their experience at all. We’ve been reading horrible stories over the years, and already, David, I’m hearing it’s getting much better. A lot of improvements are being made and it’s going to change. And under my administration, it will change -- very important to me.

During my campaign, I outlined a detailed plan to reforming veterans’ care throughout the country, and we’re working to put that plan into effect. And it’s moving, I think I can, honestly, ahead of schedule.

As Commander-in-Chief, I will not accept substandard service for our great veterans. Every member of our government is expected to do their utmost to ensure our veterans have the care that they’re so entitled to -- maybe more entitled to than anybody. And that hasn’t been the way they were treated. But it is the way they’re going to be treated.

So again, I want to thank you all for being here. It’s a great honor. And maybe I’ll ask David just to say a few words.

SECRETARY SHULKIN: Sure. Thank you, Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you.

SECRETARY SHULKIN: Mr. Vice President. I wanted to let you know the people in this room are some of the most dedicated, passionate people advocating for our veterans. And they are our partners in this quest to transform VA. And we really are so grateful that they’re here with us standing as partners.

I also want to thank you, Mr. President, for the budget. I think that you’ve honored your commitment to showing that this country cares about the veterans, and you’ve given us the ability to make sure that we are able to care for them. I also wanted to tell you that yesterday the House passed an accountability bill, and we’re very, very grateful for Chairman Roe’s leadership and for the House’s leadership in doing that. We’re looking forward to the Senate bringing a bill forward.

And so, I think, as you said, we’re committed to the plan that you outlined during your campaign to making the VA the type of organization that Americans want it to be, and we’re well on our way to do that. So thank you very much.

THE PRESIDENT: Well, that’s great. And unrelated, we just had a meeting with probably 12 congressmen, and it was an amazing meeting because they were all “nos,” would you say, Mike? They were all “nos” or pretty much “no,” and after 15 minutes -- now, in all fairness, not 15 minutes, it was really actually about four or five days, but after 15 minutes, they went from “no” to all “yeses.” So the healthcare looks like it’s going to be in great shape. It’s a great plan. The press doesn’t give it a fair read but I’ve heard that before. What are you going to do -- the fake news.

But it’s a great plan or I wouldn’t be involved with it. I wouldn’t be involved. So you have 12 “nos,” and we have rejiggered it and we’ve done some great things, but the “nos” in every single case went to a “yes.” So that was a great honor, and healthcare looks like it’s really happening, and it’s going to great.

Obamacare is dead. Some of you folks have yourself -- you have family members that have suffered greatly under Obamacare. It’s dying. It’s just about on its last legs. If we did nothing, if we did absolutely nothing, Obamacare is dead. It will fail. In Tennessee, where I just left, half of the state has no insurance and --no carrier. It’s gone. And they’re going to leave the other half of the state very soon. You have that in many cases. Many states are down to one and they’ll end up with nothing.

So Obamacare is dead. We’re going to come up with a replacement that’s going to be fantastic. We have no support from the Democrats. That’s why it’s a little -- we have to go interesting little routes. Instead of just approving it, it has to be approved in pieces, and that’s working out really well. But we just got 12 very, very great people that went from “no” or “maybe” -- but “maybe” leaning to “no” -- right, Mike? And they all have given me a commitment that they’re voting for our healthcare plan. So that was great.

I want to thank you all for being here, and let’s talk. And the press will leave. Thank you very much.

President Donald Trump: Judge Blocking New Immigration Order Is ‘Unprecedented Judicial Overreach




President Trump: Judge Blocking New Immigration Order Is ‘Unprecedented Judicial Overreach’

Donald Trump responded to the federal judge in Hawaii who froze his latest executive order restricting immigration just hours before it was supposed to go into effect.

Speaking from a rally in Nashville Wednesday night, the president said it was “unprecedented judicial overreach.”

“Let me give you the bad news,” Trump said. “We don’t like bad news, right? Let me give you the bad, the sad news. Moments ago, I learned that a district judge in Hawaii, part of the much overturned ninth circuit court, and I have to be nice or otherwise I’ll be criticized for speaking poorly about our courts…a judge has blocked our executive order. The order he blocked was a watered down version of the first order. That was also blocked by another judge and should have never been blocked to start with.”

“This new order was tailored to the ninth circuit’s dictates. The law and Constitution give the president the power to suspend immigration when he or she deems — fortunately, it will not be Hillary she…”

“We are talking about the safety of our nation,” he continued. “The safety and security of our people. You don’t think this was done by a judge for a political reason? This ruling makes us look weak, which by the way we no longer are. Just look at our orders…”

“We are going to take our case as far as it needs to go, even to the Supreme Court. We are going to win. I will not stop fighting for the safety of you and your families. Not today, not ever. We’re going to win it. We are going to win it. We are going to apply common sense. We are never quitting and we are never going away.”

U.S. District Judge Derrick K. Watson froze the order on Wednesday after the state filed a lawsuit against the president’s revised order last week.

The order, which temporarily bars the citizens of Sudan, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia and Yemen from entering the United States for 90 days, was supposed to go into effect at midnight Wednesday.





Wild Thing's comment............

Throw this freaking America hating judge and the other Judge in prison! If YOU out there do not agree with this ban President Trump wants to protect our country then IMO you do NOT love America and you know where you can go.

Before the rally, Trump toured The Hermitage, Andrew Jackson's historic home, and placed a wreath on his tomb in honor of Jackson's 250th birthday. As Trump showed up for the rally, someone announced that he was in the building but there were still thousands of people outside, waiting to get into the building. Security delays caused fans to have trouble getting in, as a screening process slowed everything down. The rally was already 30 minutes late when Trump began speaking.

Donald Trump Paid HIGHER Tax Rate than Obama, Sanders, Romney






Donald Trump Paid HIGHER Tax Rate than Obama, Sanders, Romney


President Donald Trump paid more in taxes and at a higher rate than Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders, and Mitt Romney.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow broke the news of Trump's taxes on Tuesday night, but the numbers were not what the liberal personality was expecting. The returns show that the President payed approximately $38 million in taxes on $150 million in earnings, equating to a federal tax rate of 25%.

In 2015, President Obama paid roughly $80,000 in taxes on $436,000, resulting in a tax rate of just 18.7%, according to the Washington Times.

In 2014, Senator Sanders paid just $27,653 to the treasury on his joint income of $205,271, equating to a tax rate of only 13.5%.

In 2012, Republican nominee Mitt Romney paid $1.9 million in taxes on earnings of over $13 million; an effective rate of 14.1%.

Not only did the President pay his 'fair share' to the US Treasury, Press Secretary Spicer vowed this week that President Trump will donate his entire salary in 2017 to charity.

Case closed.

Samsung Will Shift Manufacturing from Mexico to U.S., Invest $300 Million



Samsung Will Shift Manufacturing from Mexico to U.S., Invest $300 Million


Samsung announced an investment in expanding production in the United States this week, according to The Wall Street Journal.

According to sources close to the company, the initial capital investment will total close to $300 million and will involve shifting some production from Mexico to the United States. The sources claim that the move could generate around 500 jobs.

Samsung, which is based in Seoul, South Korea, may increase manufacturing of home appliances such as refrigerators, washer, and dryers in the United States. According to The Wall Street Journal, the decision to move production to the United States was influenced by President Trump after he campaigned to move manufacturing jobs for products bought in the United States from overseas into this country.

The tech giant has engaged in initial discussions with several states, including Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio and South Carolina. According to the sources, South Carolina is likely one of the strongest contenders for a Samsung manufacturing plant, which could specifically be located in Blythewood, S.C.

Samsung Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong attended a meeting in December at Trump Tower with the then president-elect. Since that time, several large firms based in Asia have agreed to expand operations or invested into the United States.
