Gene Sperling, a top economic adviser to Democratic former presidents and, said Trump erred in recent months by focusing so heavily on the stock market.

The White House circled back to a frequent explanation for President Donald Trump's controversial remarks on Tuesday.

"They certainly didn't seem to love our country very much", Trump added.

WASHINGTON — Buoyed by the sudden likelihood of a budget pact, lawmakers are on track to avoid a repeat of last months government shutdown — though President Donald Trump unexpectedly raised the possibility of closing things down again if he cant have his way on immigration.

In November, North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un said that his country had achieved full nuclear statehood after what he said was the successful test of a new missile capable of striking anywhere in the United States.

Mrs. Trump was accompanied to the hospital by presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway.

"When you see these towns and when you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just see them thrown in, rough", Trump said during a speech to law enforcement officials on Long Island.

As for Trump's second point - about the "old days"?

On the contrary. Dissent, especially in the face of someone who frequently behaves more like a dictator than as our constitutionally empowered chief executive, is a most-patriotic act.

Norris says on "Fox & Friends" that some call it "crumbs" but "we consider that fine dining".
