"While American officials have promised to continue to try to counter, block & weaken Russian intelligence operations, they have complained of a lack of high-level coordination. Pres. Trump has little interest or patience for hearing about such warnings"

Between Robert E Lee and Mike Flynn, Trump sure does have a warm spot for generals who betray the United States of America.

ICE is holding on to more than $200 million in bond money that belongs to immigrants who have been in the agency's custody, cash that has yet to be returned to thousands of immigrant families or the U.S. citizens who bailed them out

President Trump defends Charlottesville comments: "I have answered that question, and if you look at what I said, you will see that question was answered perfectly."
