Trump blasts Washington Post report that he offered pardons to aides over border wall orders

Trump blasts Washington Post report that he offered pardons to aides over border wall orders President Trump on Wednesday blasted The Washington Post over a report that he urged aides to do whatever is necessary to complete construction of the wall along the southern border, and that he would pardon them if they broke the law. The president dismissed the report, which was published Tuesday night and included on the record comments from the White House press office, as a "totally Fake story.""This was made up by the Washington Post only in order to demean and disparage - FAKE NEWS!" Trump tweeted.

President Trump on Friday said the Obama-era executive order granting protections to some immigrants who came to the country as minors was a “totally illegal document” that former President Obama never had the right to sign.

“President Obama never had the legal right to sign DACA, and he indicated so at the time of signing. But In any event, how can he have the right to sign and I don’t have the right to 'unsigned.' Totally illegal document which would actually give the President new powers,” he tweeted, after quoting analysis from Immigration Law Institute's Christopher Hajec calling the program "unlawful."

Why Donald Trump golfing during Hurricane Dorian is a problem

Why Donald Trump golfing during Hurricane Dorian is a problem As Dorian grew into a Category 5 hurricane over Labor Day weekend, President Donald Trump played golf. Twice. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); The most common critique of Trump's decision to hit the links was focused on the obvious hypocrisy.

SUPREME COURT TO DECIDE WHETHER TRUMP ADMINISTRATION CAN END DACA PROGRAM

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was signed by Obama via executive order in 2012 and gave more than 700,000 immigrants that activists call “Dreamers” a renewable two-year reprieve from deportation and the ability to gain a work permit.

“DACA will be going before the Supreme Court. It is a document that even President Obama didn’t feel he had the legal right to sign — he signed it anyway!” Trump tweeted.

Trump, who campaigned on repealing DACA in 2016, announced a plan in 2017 to phase out the program, but was blocked by federal courts that ruled that the phase-out could not apply retroactively and that the program should be restarted. The White House fought back on those decisions, saying the president has broad authority over immigration enforcement policy.

Trump blasts CNN for ignoring 'facts' on climate ahead of 2020 forum

Trump blasts CNN for ignoring 'facts' on climate ahead of 2020 forum President Donald Trump blasted CNN Wednesday afternoon just ahead of its climate-focused Democratic presidential forum, arguing it would likely ignore key "facts.""8 FACTS that #FakeNewsCNN will ignore in tonight's "Climate Forum," Trump said in a series of tweets.The president went on to list points defending the role his administration has played in cleaning the country's air and reducing emissions, echoing similar talking points he made during his July White House speech on America's energy leadership. "1. Which country has the largest carbon emission reduction? AMERICA! 2. Who has dumped the most carbon into the air? CHINA! 3.

DACA proponents have also argued that Trump’s planned termination of the program violates federal law requiring adequate notice-and-comment periods before certain federal rules are changed, as well as other constitutional equal protection and due process guarantees.

The case is now headed to the Supreme Court, where justices will begin hearing oral arguments in October. A ruling will likely come in 2020 and could galvanize activists on both sides of the political spectrum in the middle of an election year.

The Justice Department submitted a brief to the court last month saying that Trump acted lawfully when he ended the program

However, on Friday Trump also renewed his calls for Congress to pass an immigration deal that includes a DACA fix, something the White House has expressed openness to before.

“Rest assured that if the SC does what all say it must, based on the law, a bipartisan deal will be made to the benefit of all!"
