Day 964

1/ Trump announced that he fired his national security adviser, who insists that he resigned. John Bolton, disputing Trump's version of events, tweeted that "I offered to resign last night and President Trump said, 'Let's talk about it tomorrow.'" Trump, meanwhile, tweeted that "I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House." Trump added that he "disagreed strongly with many of [Bolton's] suggestions." The two have had a series of disagreements during Bolton's tenure, including how to handle sensitive foreign policy matters involving North Korea, Afghanistan, and Iran. Trump did not name Bolton's successor but said he plans to name a replacement "next week." Bolton was Trump's third national security adviser.

Trump's latest Approval
(gretchend) #2

I think you meant to say his latest approval rating is 38% not 48%, down from 44%. We don want to give him any extra credit!

Now he wants to put homeless people in internment camps too?! Wow, it does not end. :anguished: :exploding_head:

Trump posted this today. Were he to win he 2020, he can’t legally run in 2024. But since when did little things like “the law” stop Trump? This is why we must kick him out in 2020.

A start…but never enough.

The House Judiciary Committee voted on Tuesday to approve gun violence prevention legislation as Congress faces pressure to take action in the wake of recent mass shootings.

The Democratic-controlled committee approved several bills, including a measure to ban high-capacity magazines and a “red flag” bill during a markup where the committee convened to debate and vote on a series of gun control measures. The bill would still need to be voted on by the full House to advance and the GOP controlled Senate has not said what if any gun control legislation it would take up.

The red flag legislation that the committee voted on Tuesday would set up a federal grant program to incentivize states to establish red flag laws – otherwise known as extreme risk protection orders, which enable a court to intervene and temporarily prevent someone who is in crisis from having access to a firearm. It would also create a federal extreme risk protection order program.
