Warren talks identity in address to historically black university: 'I'm not a person of color'

Warren talks identity in address to historically black university: 'I'm not a person of color' Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) acknowledged Friday that she is "not a person of color" in her commencement address at Morgan State University, a historically black institution. "As a country, we need to stop pretending that the same doors open for everyone. Because they don't," Warren said, according to The Washington Post. "I'm not a person of color. And I haven't lived your life or experienced anything like the subtle prejudice, or more overt harm, that you may have experienced just because of the color of your skin," she added. In her speech, Warren sought to convey that her progressive stance on issues could benefit minorities.

President Donald Trump claimed Saturday to be negotiating with Democratic leaders to end a partial government shutdown. But when he convened a lunch at the White House, he invited only Republican lawmakers and officials.

In fact, Trump broke bread in the executive mansion’s private residence with mostly immigration hardliners. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said again Saturday that any deal that would re-open the Justice, Homeland security, Agriculture, Interior and other departments will have to be negotiated by Trump and Senate Democratic leader Charles E. Schumer.

Trump pitches border wall, rips Dems as shutdown deadline nears

Trump pitches border wall, rips Dems as shutdown deadline nears President Trump on Monday tweeted that any Democrat who says the U.S. can have border security without a wall can be written off "as just another politician following the party line." Trump tweeted the remark days before a Dec. 21 deadline for funding the government. The demands for wall funding threaten to close parts of the government on Saturday. "Anytime you hear a Democrat saying that you can have good Boarder Security without a Wall, write them off as just another politician following the party line," he wrote on Twitter.

Will the Dems investigate this? Just had a great conversation with @realDonaldTrump. We talked about our good public schools in WV and how he totally supports my plan for WV public schools.

Trump, who has uttered and tweeted thousands of false and inaccurate statements since taking office, claimed Saturday morning that he was “working hard” at the White House after canceling his planned trip to his South Florida resort for a holiday break. And he told his millions of followers, which was quickly picked up by cable news and other media outlets, that he was pursuing a bipartisan deal.

“I am in the White House, working hard. News reports concerning the Shutdown and Syria are mostly FAKE,” the president contended.

“We are negotiating with the Democrats on desperately needed Border Security (Gangs, Drugs, Human Trafficking & more),” the president wrote, adding ominously for the thousands of federal workers wondering about future paychecks: “but it could be a long stay.”

About an hour later, Trump fired off this tweet, raising hopes that talks were progressing: “Will be having lunch in White House residence with large group concerning Border Security.”

But the guest list featured nary a Democrat.

Vice President Mike Pence, Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, White House policy adviser Jared Kushner, and White House legislative affairs chief Shahira Knight were at the lunch meeting, according to deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters.

The president, rather than hearing the views of anti-border wall Democrats who might be willing to give him money for a border fence, also invited a number of conservative immigration hardliners.

That list included House Freedom Caucus leaders Mark Meadows of North Carolina and Jim Jordan of Utah — both helped convince Trump to demand $5 billion for his wall project and to reject a Senate shutdown-averting stopgap that called for $1.3 billion for “fencing.”

Also in attendance was Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida, who this week made his views on the wall and coming shutdown clear in who this week made his views on the wall and coming shutdown clear on cable TV hits and Twitter:

Erdogan invites Trump to visit Turkey: White House

Erdogan invites Trump to visit Turkey: White House President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has invited his American counterpart Donald Trump to visit Turkey in 2019, the White House said on Monday. "President Erdogan invited President Trump to visit Turkey in 2019. While nothing definite is being planned, the President is open to a potential meeting in the future," a White House spokesperson said. The invitation comes just days after Trump made the controversial decision to withdraw American troops from Syria, where they have been deployed to assist in the international war against the Islamic State jihadist group.

Trump renewed his call for money for his signature campaign promise and was rebuffed. Republicans and Democrats had differing accounts of the brief Trump had just returned from Capitol Hill, where he urged jittery congressional Republicans to hold firm with him. He suggested a deal for his border

Trump 's tweet came after several Democratic leaders in Congress made clear on Sunday that the possibility of impeachment was still on the table, despite opposition from Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and others. "Impeachment is likely to be unsuccessful," Rep.

“This is not about the wall for Democrats. It’s not even about immigration for Democrats. This is about denying @POTUS a win on a signature agenda item that he promised the American people,” he wrote.

Also on the list were Utah Sen. Mike Lee, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham and Senate Appropriations Chairman Richard C. Shelby of Alabama. Graham has urged the president to “dig in” on his wall plans before and Lee voted against an immigration bill pushed by the Trump White House, in part, because it would have offered citizenship to DACA recipients and increased the number of undocumented migrants eligible to be covered by that program.

Arizona GOP Rep. Andy Biggs also got an invitation. He has introduced legislation to fund Trump’s border wall project.

Walters did not respond to an inquiry about why no Democrats were invited to the lunch meeting.
