Within an inaugural speech he delivered only over 1,000 days before, President Donald Trump declared that”America First” would direct his schedule.
In the White House press briefing room, acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said Trump had picked his very own Florida golf hotel to sponsor the next year’s G-7 assembly in the USA.
“That choice is without precedent in modern American history: The president used his public office to lead a massive contract for himself,” that the Washington Post states.
Mulvaney also confessed the Trump administration withheld overseas aid to Ukraine since, among other matters, it needed the nation to research the conspiracy concept that somehow Russia was not involved in the hacking of DNC emails in 2016.
Query: “Hence the requirement for an investigation to the Democrats was a part of the reason he ordered to withhold financing to Ukraine?”
Mulvaney: “The appearance back to what occurred in 2016…”
Query: “The research to Democrats.”
Mulvaney:”… was a part of this item he concerned about in corruption together with that state. And that’s completely appropriate.”
Mulvaney strove to walk back that remark later in the afternoon.
And Trump celebrated a ceasefire in northern Syria involving Turkey and the Kurds — that gave Turkey what it needed.
“The cease-fire arrangement reached with Turkey from Vice President Mike Pence numbers into a near-total success for Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, that profits territory, pays small penalties and seems to get outmaneuvered President Trump,” that the New York Times writes.
Ask yourself: Who profits from the G-7 being held in Trump’s golfing resort?
Who profits from approving foreign aid out of a nation — unless it agrees to an investigation to the 2016 election?
And who profits in the army incursion into northern Syria?
It is not America.

Joe Biden Thursday spoke in the DNC’s Women’s Leadership Forum at D.C., in which he floated the notion that President Trump is going to be removed from office before the 2020 election. NBC’s Marianna Sotomayor reports Biden’s remarks:”‘He has a second year at office… possibly. Perhaps,’ he explained. ‘He is not even clever enough to understand what he does not understand.'” And on Rudy Giuliani,” Biden said, “Giuliani, God bless him reminds me of the line from Voltaire. Well God has given it to the Democratic Party.”
NBC’s Maura Barrett reports on Kamala Harris’ swipe Medicare for everybody in Iowa:”We are not gonna raise middle-class taxes and gonna allow you to have choice” and”this can be a point of differentiation between me and a number of my coworkers on this point” It must be noted that Harris was among the very first co-sponsors on Bernie Sanders’ Medicare for All invoice.
