Nothing in this morning's report references any actions by the president, the White House or any Trump administration official.
Yes. This is the vote. This is the time to act. This vote needs to happen. This is the only train leaving the station. The count keeps getting stronger for us. Member by member we keep seeing tremendous support flow in our direction. I'm optimistic in the sense of what we're seeing … and the amount of votes that are flowing our way and not the other way. He's not there to threaten them. He's there to explain the political landscape to them.
There is no plan B. There is plan A and plan A, we're going to get this done.
To be clear, he got the job done on the delegates.
I don't know what he got paid to do.
To suggest that the president knew who his clients were from 10 years ago is a bit insane.
We're not looking at a Plan B. We have Plan A, and it's going to pass.
To suggest that the president knew who clients were from a decade ago is a bit insane. He was not – he is not a government employee. He didn't fill out any paperwork attesting to something.
What else don't we know? I mean, where he went to school, what grades he got, who he played with in the sandbox?
He briefed the media before he briefed us.
I don't want to rule anything out.
Member by member we're seeing tremendous support flow in our direction, and the count is getting stronger for us. We're going to make sure that we remember those who stood by us.
Obviously there's been discussion of Paul Manafort who played a very limited role for a very limited amount of time.
The president is very clear that he works seven days a week. This is where he goes to see his family. He brings people down there. This is part of being president.
One of the things that he made clear this morning was that he was going to make sure that the people who did support this, he would be out there supporting them. And so I'm not going to focus on the negative as much as the positive today.
It would be inappropriate for us to comment on a person who is not a White House employee.
Mark Meadows is a longtime, early supporter of the president. He had some fun at his expense this morning during the conference meeting. I think they'll probably pay a price at home.
We've allowed the committees to work their will. The House has taken up the amendment. It's been online. I mean, there's always a balance between jamming it down and getting it done and over it, which is how the Democrats operated at one point when they finally moved on their bill, versus how this is done.
The President has been briefed on the situation in London. He just spoke to Prime Minister May. We obviously condemn the attack, which the United Kingdom is treating as terrorism. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.
I think it's startling information.
Slowly but surely we're getting there, and I feel confident that when the vote comes up, we'll have the votes. There is no Plan B. There's Plan A and Plan A. We're going to get this done.
This is the only train leaving the station. There is no plan B. There is a plan A and plan A. We're going to get this done.
You can't look at one indices and say that that is the benchmark of an entire economy. But you see confidence levels both in small business and in other surveys that show that there's continued confidence in the market and optimism in the market.
Director Comey told the House Intelligence Committee that certain political appointees in the Obama administration had access to the names of unmasked US citizens, such as senior White House officials, senior Department of Justice officials, and senior intelligence officials. Before President Obama left office, Michael Flynn was unmasked and then illegally his identity was leaked out to media.
You can't look at one indices and say that's the benchmark for an entire economy.
The president recognizes that education is a state-run and a local-run issue but I think it is cause for concern what happened there. And I think the city should look at its policies, and I think that this is something authorities are going to have to look at.
Ivanka has taken on several measures to promote high standards of ethical conduct. Even though she's not a federal employee, she'll follow the restrictions that would apply if she were. She's taken these steps with the advice of counsel and in consultation of the Office of Government Ethics.
General Flynn was a volunteer of the campaign. Paul Manafort who played a very limited role, for a very limited amount of time.
Some of those names, the greatest amount of interaction that they've had is [to] have cease-and-desist letters sent to them.
All we're doing is literally reading off what other stations and people have reported. We're not casting judgment on that.
Why? What were they hiding? What were they concerned of?
Where's the concern about their efforts on the Hillary Clinton thing?
When these people, both sides of the aisle, Obama appointees, elected Democrats, elected republicans, say 'no evidence suggested', at some point it's not just about me, it's about you. Take no for an answer.
So just because he heads there, doesn't mean that that's what's happening.
The president is entitled to a bit of privacy at some point.
Well, I think, two things. One is, you saw him utilize this as an opportunity with [Japanese] Prime Minister [Shinzo] Abe to help foster deeper relationship... in Asia... and have a growing relationship that is going to help U.S. interests. How you use the game of golf is something that he's talked about. Secondly... he had a mini-cabinet meeting the other day, or two weekends ago, down at his club in Virginia. And, I remember, so many people jumping to the conclusion that he was going down, playing golf. Just because you go somewhere doesn't necessarily mean you did it.
I don't think we regret anything.
Those people, the greatest amount of interaction that they had with the campaign was the campaign apparently sending them a series of cease and desists.
And so to start to look at some individual that was there for a short period of time or, separately, individuals who really didn't play any role in the campaign and to suggest that those are the basis for anything is a bit ridiculous.
Secondly, he had a mini-Cabinet meeting two weekends ago down at his club in Virginia, and I remember so many people jumping to the conclusion that he's going down and playing golf. Just because you go somewhere doesn't necessarily mean you did it. So on a couple of occasions, he's actually conducted meetings there, he's actually had phone calls. So just because he heads there, it doesn't mean that that's what's happening.
It's the same reason that he can have dinner or lunch with somebody and not. … The president's entitled to a bit of privacy at some point. Which is what we've always agreed to: We bring the protective pool to be there but the president's also entitled to a bit of privacy as well.
Well, I think two things. One is I think you saw him utilize this as an opportunity with Prime Minister Abe to help foster deeper relationships in Southeast Asia – in Asia, rather, and have a growing relationship that's going to help U.S. interests. How you use the game of golf is something that he's talked about.
You saw him utilize this with Prime Minister Abe to help foster a deeper relationship in Asia and have a growing relationship that's going to help U.S. interests. How you use the game of golf is something he's talked about.
We had a mini-Cabinet meeting two weeks ago at his club in Virginia. People jump to the conclusion he's going to play golf. On a couple of occasions he's actually conducted meetings there, had phone calls.
Why was a name that should have been protected by law from being put out into the public domain, put out there. What were the motives behind that? What else do we need to know? Who was behind that kind of unmasking?
No. We started a hearing, it is still ongoing. There's a lot of areas that still need to be covered. There's a lot of information that still needs to be discussed. Following this testimony it's clear that nothing has changed. Who was being surveilled? Why were they being surveilled? Why were they being quote unmasked?
Investigating it and having proof of it are two different things. I think it's fine to look into it, but at the end of the day they're going to come to the same conclusion that everybody else has had.
We are still at the beginning phase of a look as to what kind of surveillance took place and why. I think there's continuing to be a very, very literal interpretation of his tweet, which is whether or not there was wiretapping. The president understands that you don't literally wiretap people the same way you did in the '70s and '80s with wires and things in the top of the phone. There's no reason to believe he doesn't at this time.
When Devin Nunes came out and said there was no connection that he saw to Russia – crickets. Where was your passion and where was your concern when they all said that there was no connection to Russia?
If they have ideas that can make the country better, and in this case our health-care system better in terms of affordability and accessibility, he's going to want to hear their ideas.
We are going to have tax reform after we get health care completed... I think we are looking at late spring to summer.
We are going to have tax reform after we get healthcare completed... I think we are looking at late spring to summer.
Individual jumped bike rack on Pennsylvania Ave, not @WhiteHouse fence. Great response by @SecretService.
As far as wiretapping, I guess, by this past administration, at least we have something in common, perhaps.
I don't think we regret anything. We literally listed a litany of media reports that were in the public domain.
Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command - he didn't use the NSA, he didn't use the CIA, he didn't use the FBI and he didn't use the Department of Justice - he used GCHQ.
The president's intention right now is to donate his salary at the end of the year. And he has kindly asked that you all help determine where that goes. The way that we can avoid scrutiny is to let the press corps determine where it should go.
They're not findings. The statement clearly says at this time, they don't believe that. They have yet to go through the information.
He's able to get it and there's no American fingerprints on it. Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command - he didn't use the NSA, he didn't use the CIA, he didn't use the FBI and he didn't use the Department of Justice - he used GCHQ.
There's a lot of wiretapping being talked about. I think you're going to find some very interesting items coming to the forefront over the next two weeks.
They are not findings. The statement clearly says at this time they don't believe it. At the end of the day the committee has not been provided all the information.
The danger is real and the law is clear.
He stands by (his tweet) but again you're mischaracterizing what happened today.
If you think about it, the principles of the executive order remain the same.
It's despicable and reprehensible and they should be ashamed of themselves as to how they conducted themselves regarding this entire episode.
It's despicable and reprehensible, and they should be ashamed of themselves. No. And I think it's offensive to ask that question. To talk about because they obtained one year illegally we should respond in kind with several years is preposterous.
He made a pledge to the American people, he wants to donate it to charity and he'd love your help to determine where it should go.
Anyone in the country and anyone in the world, could read it. That's a vastly different approach than after it's being done, told, after we pass it you can read it, which is what Speaker Pelosi said.
This is the only vehicle that seeks to achieve what people on our side of the aisle have been talking about since 2010. This is it. If we don't get this through, the goal of repealing Obamacare and instituting a system that will be patient-centered will be unbelievably difficult.
This is it. If we don't get this through, the goal of repealing Obamacare and instituting a system that will be patient centered will be unbelievably difficult.
No, that's above my pay grade.
The president was very clear in his tweet that it was 'wiretapping'.That spans a whole host of surveillance types of options. I think that there have been numerous reports from a variety of outlets over the last couple of months that seem to indicate that there has been different types of surveillance that occurred during the 2016 election.
We feel very confident with how that was crafted and the input that was given.
I don't believe that that was known.
And make no mistake about it I think the president has talked before that anybody who leaked classified information will be held to the highest degree of law. We will go after people who leak classified information. we'll prosecute them to the full extent of the law. This is playing with our nation's national security is not something that should be taken lightly under this administration.
We want him back, and we will spare no effort to achieve that goal.
I get that that's a cute question to ask. My job is to represent the president and to talk about what he's doing and what he wants. ... I'm not here to speak for myself. I'm here to speak for the president of the United States and our government.
If you're looking at the CBO for accuracy, you're looking in the wrong place.
This should be a major concern to people in terms of the leaks that are coming out and the desire to get to the bottom of them. I think the idea that we are having these ongoing disclosures of national security and classified information should be something that everybody is outraged about in this country. This is the kind of disclosure that undermines our country, our security and our well-being. You've seen over the past two years, depending on the leak, it depends on the outrage.
The interest and the outrage that occurred last year by a lot of Democrats when it came to leaks, it's interesting that we're hearing not as much outrage now when it comes to some of our issues of national security.
We are going to have a full-court press.
If you know Don and the team here, these are unbelievably talented lawyers. They are very skilled at knowing where the bounds are.
You're seeing the leaks happen over and over again that come out throughout the administration, throughout government and undermine national security.
It's not a question of new proof or less proof or whatever.
Obamacare has proven to be a disaster with fewer options, inferior care, and skyrocketing costs that are crushing small businesses and families across America. Today marks an important step toward restoring healthcare choices and affordability back to the American people. President Trump looks forward to working with both Chambers of Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare.
That's probably a level above my pay grade.
The United States stands with our allies in the face of this very serious threat.
It could be FISA, it could be surveillance.
The president's tweets, speak for themselves.
He said that he wasn't aware of anything. I take him at his word that he wasn't aware, but that doesn't mean that it didn't exist.
President Donald J. Trump is requesting that as part of their investigation into Russian activity, the congressional intelligence committees exercise their oversight authority to determine whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016.
The White House wants the congressional committees to "exercise their oversight authority to determine whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016.
President Trump is requesting that as part of their investigation into Russian activity, the congressional intelligence committees exercise their oversight authority to determine whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016.
It's not a question of delaying, it's a question of getting it right. We've taken the Court's opinions and concerns into consideration, but the order is finalized. It's now awaiting implementation.
Reports concerning potentially politically motivated investigations immediately ahead of the 2016 election are very troubling.
Reports concerning potentially politically motivated investigations immediately ahead of the 2016 election are very troubling. President Donald J. Trump is requesting that as part of their investigation into Russian activity, the congressional intelligence committees exercise their oversight authority to determine whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016. Neither the White House nor the president will comment further until such oversight is conducted.
Neither the White House nor the president will comment further until such oversight is conducted.
He has said many times before that education has the ability to level the playing field for the next generation.
There was a very short period of time in which we had something to execute that ensured that the people of the United States were safe. Do you wait until you do? The answer is you act now to protect the future.
Carter Page is an individual who the president-elect does not know, and was put on notice months ago by the campaign.
People who are choosing to play partisan politics with this should be ashamed of themselves.
I think this is Democrats continuing to push a false narrative for political purposes.
This was something that was, you know, just they wanted to do. And they came to see me and they explained what they wanted to do, the generals, who are very respected. My generals are the most respected that we've had in many decades, I believe. And they lost Ryan.
There's nothing to recuse himself from.
He recognizes that a solution, a comprehensive solution, has eluded our nation for a long time. And it's a big problem. And if he can get it consistent with his principles he will.
When we have one, we'll announce it.
It was not a reset speech.
The only new piece of information that has come to light is that political appointees in the Obama administration have sought to create a false narrative to make an excuse for their own defeat in the election. There continues to be no there, there.
Anyone who undermines the success of that raid owes an apology and [does] a disservice to the life of Chief Owens.
He will invite Americans of all backgrounds to come together in the service of a stronger and brighter future for our nation.
We gathered an unbelievable amount of intelligence that will prevent the potential deaths or attacks on American soil.
We're going to aggressively push back. We're just not going to sit back and let, you know, false narratives, false stories, inaccurate facts get out there.
If there's nothing to further investigate, what are you asking people to investigate.
The president continues to condemn these and any other form of anti-Semitic and hateful acts in the strongest terms. From our country's founding we've been dedicated to protecting the freedom of our citizens' rights to worship.
What I'm trying to ascertain is how many people have to say there's nothing there before you realize there's nothing there?
A special prosecutor for what?
All we sought to do was get an accurate report out.
The president understands the pain and suffering that many people go through who are facing especially terminal diseases and the comfort that some of these drugs, including medical marijuana, can bring to them.
While the new executive order attempts to address the court's concerns that they made, the goal is obviously to maintain the way that we did it the first time because we believe that the law is very clear about giving the president the authority that he needs to protect the country.
Everybody who is here illegally is subject to removal at any time.
We've brought more reporters into this process. And the idea that every time that every single person can't get their question answered or fit in a room that we're excluding people. We've actually gone above and beyond with making ourselves, our team, and our briefing room more accessible than probably any prior administration. And so I think you can take that to the bank.
Our job is to make sure that we're responsive to folks in media. We want to make sure we answer your questions, but we don't need to do everything on camera every day.
Well, I think that is a question for the Department of Justice.I do believe you'll see greater enforcement of it. Because again there is a big difference between the medical use … that's very different from the recreational use, which is something the Department of Justice will be further looking into.
I don't know what else we were supposed to do. The chief of staff said, well, you've put us in a very difficult situation. You've told us that a story that made some fairly significant accusations was not true. And now you want us to just sit out there.
Over $700 million. Do you think Hillary would have cost you $700 million? I assume you wanted her to win.
We are a states' rights party.
Well I think that's a question for the Department of Justice. I do believe you'll see greater enforcement of it. Because again there's a big difference between the medical use ... that's very different than the recreational use, which is something the Department of Justice will be further looking into.
Will not yield its supremacy in this area to anyone.
I would argue that we have a very healthy and robust relationship with the Mexican government and Mexican officials. And I think they would echo that same sentiment.
The president will meet with a group of world-class business leaders to discuss specific action he can take to remove barriers to job creation.
I think Secretary Tillerson and Secretary Kelly are going to have a great discussion down there.
There is no daylight between anybody.
I think he's made it very clear from the beginning that this was a country-focused issue, a safety focused issue ... I don't see anything other than that.
He is a firm believer in states' rights and that certain issues like this are not best dealt with on the federal level.
I think there's an unbelievable and robust dialogue between the two nations.
The president has made it clear throughout the campaign that he is a firm believer in states' rights and that certain issues like this are not best dealt with at the federal level. There is no daylight between anybody.
The president has been very clear that in the next couple weeks we expect to have a tax plan that will get out there.
The president has made it clear throughout the campaign that he is a firm believer in states' rights and that certain issues like this are not best dealt with at the federal level.
I think that all you have to do is look at what the president's view has been for a long time, that this is not something the federal government should be involved in, this is a states' rights issue.
This morning Secretary Kelly and the department of Homeland and Security released memos regarding the implementation of two of the president executive orders that are designed to protect the homeland. Perhaps most critically, the president is empowering the DHS (Department of Homeland and Security) to carry out the immigration laws currently on the books.
Trump "in terms of his desire to combat radical Islamic terrorism... understands that people who want to express a peaceful position have every right under our Constitution.
Hatred and hate-motivated violence of any kind have no place of any kind in a country founded on the promise of individual freedom.
I downloaded it, but I'm glad to show anyone my phone and that I've literally sent one message on Confide. These are personal phones… I also have iTunes on my personal phone, Solitaire, and other apps. Frankly I think the idea that you guys are writing a story, the idea of what apps I use on my phone, is an invasion of my privacy.
There is no effort to utilize the National Guard to round up immigrants.
Where is the role of Senate Democrats in this?
We know how to count.
We got to a point not based on a legal issue, but based on a trust issue, with the level of trust between the president and General Flynn had eroded to a point where [Trump] felt he had to make a change. The president was very concerned that General Flynn had misled the vice president and others.
As the president has made clear, his administration will work to achieve comprehensive agreement that would end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict so that Israelis and Palestinians can live in peace and security.
There's nothing that would conclude me that anything different has changed with respect to that time period.
There is nothing that the general did that was a violation of any sort. He was well within his duties to discuss issues of common concern between the two countries. We got to a point, not based on a legal issue, but based on a trust issue, where the level of trust between the president and General Flynn had eroded to the point we felt he had to make a change.
While we don't believe the existence of settlements is an impediment to peace, the construction of new settlements or the expansion of existing settlements beyond their current borders may not be helpful in achieving that goal.
The evolving and eroding level of trust as a result of this situation and a series of other questionable incidents is what led the president to ask General Flynn for his resignation.
This was an act of trust – whether or not he misled the vice president was the issue and that was ultimately what led to the president asking for and accepting the resignation of Gen. Flynn.
No, absolutely not.
Getting government updates from @Washingtonian is like getting stock tips from @usweekly.
I would say they had a very productive call. It wasn't like he didn't know what was being said. He wanted an opinion on something.
I think the president just really enjoys his company and wants to not only get to know him better but to have a greater bilateral relationship. He understands their importance in the region. He values his friendship and looks forward to deepening the relationship.
She has been counseled on that subject, and that's it.
She's been counseled, and that's all we're going to say.
That's my message to anybody who says that.
Well, I think there's clearly a targeting of her brand and it's her name still out there, so she's not directly running the company, but it's still her name on it and there's clearly efforts to undermine that name based on her father's positions on particular policies that he's taken . This is a direct attack on his policies and her name.
There is a huge economic interest that America has in that deal right now.
The president wants to talk about economic growth, job creation.
The lawsuit presumes a lot of outcomes that are wildly inaccurate.
The he raid that was conducted in Yemen was an intelligence-gathering raid. That's what it was. It was highly successful. It achieved the purpose it was going to get – save the loss of life that we suffered and the injuries that occurred.
We have nothing to announce on that.
He fought knowing what was at stake in that mission.
To be clear, all that's at issue tonight in the hearing is an interim decision on whether the president's order is enforced or not, until the case is heard on the actual merits of the order.
I think this was less about his family's business than an attack on his daughter.
He's for it.
I talked to my doctor about it, he said it's no problem.
Two and a half packs by noon.
He felt that members of media don't always cover some of those events to the extent that other events might get covered. Like a protest gets blown out of the water, and yet an attack or a foiled attack doesn't necessarily get the same coverage.
The president's number one goal has always been to focus on the safety of America, not the religion. He understands that it's not a religious problem. Some people have not read what exactly the order says and are reading it through misguided media reports.
Like a protest gets blown out of the water, and yet an attack or a foiled attack doesn't necessarily get the same coverage.
The Dodd-Frank Act is a disastrous policy that's hindering our markets, reducing the availability of credit, and crippling our economy's ability to grow and create jobs.
Clearly the law is on the president's side, the Constitution's on the president's side.
He's using your words.
The president's order is intended to protect the homeland and he has the constitutional authority and responsibility to protect the American people.
The president takes these leaks very seriously. That's troubling and I think the president has asked the team to look into this because those are very serious implications.
If you're letting a million people in, if 325,000 people from another country can't come in, that is by nature not a ban – it is extreme vetting.
The president-elect has no conflicts by law. He has gone above and beyond in what he has done to make sure there are no conflicts.
The Dodd-Frank Act is a disastrous policy that's hindering our markets, reducing the availability of credit and crippling our economy's ability to grow and create jobs.
We acted swiftly and decisively today.
There's nothing new on that front.
Knowing that we killed an estimated 14 AQAP members and that we gathered an unbelievable amount of intelligence that will prevent the potential deaths or attacks on American soil – is something that I think most service members understand, that that's why they joined the service.
There is a lot of executive orders, a lot of things that the president has talked about and will continue to fulfill, but we have nothing on that front now.
I think this can benefit us all by giving a platform to voices that are not necessarily based here in the Beltway.
Chuck Schumer is not innocent in this. There's a lot of comments he's made. At some point, Chuck Schumer needs to be held accountable for his actions and his words.
I think he wants to highlight the contributions he has made.
Everybody is arguing whether or not it is a BAN. Call it what you want, it is about keeping bad people (with bad intentions) out of country!
I have 100 percent confidence she will be the next secretary of education. She is an unbelievably qualified educator and advocate for students, teachers, parents.
The default is if you're qualified for the position, then you should be confirmed.
The deal specifically deals with 1,250 people that are mostly in Papua New Guinea being held. Part of the deal is that they have to be vetted in the same manner that we're doing now. There will be extreme vetting applied to all of them.
No American citizen will ever be targeted. I think he has been very clear that when it comes to seeking out ISIS and other terrorists that he's going to lean on [CIA] Director Pompeo, [Sec. of Defense] Gen. Mattis, and seek their opinion on stuff. And I think that will be continued.
The executive order is the first step the president is taking to address new security challenges of the 21st century.
When we use words like travel ban that misrepresents what it is.
Look coming into this country is still a privilege, we're the greatest country on earth. And being able to come to America is a privilege, not a right, and it is our duty and it is the president's goal to make sure that everybody who comes into this country to the best of our ability is here because they want to enjoy this country and come in peacefully.
Before they've even heard who this individual is, some of them are absolutely saying 'no.' That just shows this is all about politics.
They should either get with the program or they can go. If somebody has a problem with that agenda, that does call into question whether they should continue in that post or not. This is about the safety of America.
Appropriate committees and leadership offices.
They should either get with the program or they can go.
The people that needed to be kept on the loop were kept in the loop.
Prime Minister Trudeau was extremely appreciative and he was also cautious to draw conclusions on the motives at this stage of the investigation and the president shared those thoughts. We condemn this attack in the strongest possible terms. It's a terrible reminder of why we must remain vigilant and why the president is taking steps to be pro-active, rather than reactive when it comes to our nation's safety and security.
He brings to the table a much greater scope of the political landscape vis-a-vis the world – the geopolitical and national security affairs.
Three hundred and twenty-five thousand people flew into this country from airports and 109 people were affected and slowed down in their travel. I understand that is an inconvenience but at the end of the day that is a small price to pay as opposed to somebody losing their life because a terrorist attack was admitted.
I think there are some people who might not like the way it was done, but they were all consulted in the process.
Our relationship with the only democracy in the Middle East is crucial to the security of both our nations, and the president looks forward to discussing continued strategic, technological, military and intelligence cooperation with the prime minister.
The U.S. is going to make sure that we protect our interests there.
But more importantly, he understands the fight that our servicemen and women conduct on a daily basis to keep this country safe.
By doing that, we can do $10 billion a year and easily pay for the wall just through that mechanism alone. This is something that we've been in close contact with both houses in moving forward and creating a plan. As you probably can tell, he's very hands-on when it comes to these executive orders.
An unauthorized user had an old password in the San Francisco office, went in and started retweeting inappropriate things that were in violation of their policy.
I don't think it's a surprise we're going to review the policies, but I don't have any info at this time.
We'll look for a date to schedule something in the future. We will keep the lines of communication open.
Maybe its voter ID in states. But I think we have to understand where the problem exists; how deep it goes; and then suggest some remedies to it.
The American people are no longer going to have to be forced to subsidize this disregard for our laws.
The American people are no longer going to have to be forced to subsidise this disregard for our laws.
Building this barrier is more than just a campaign promise. It's a common sense first step to really securing our porous border. This will stem the flow of drugs, crime, illegal immigration into the United States.
No one understands the ethics office better than Stefan.
The president is working with Congress and other folks to figure out opportunities for that to happen. There are a lot of funding opportunities that could be used. The American people are no longer going to be forced to subsidize this disregard for our laws. Federally agencies are going to unapologetically enforce the laws. No ifs, ands or buts.
It is not a White House document. I have no idea where it came from.
[Trump] has stated his concerns of voter fraud and people voting illegally during the campaign and continues to maintain that belief based on studies and evidence people have presented to him.
We are going to make sure that we defend international territories from being taken over by one country.
Anything is possible.
They have not been directed by us to do anything.
I think he's stated his concerns of voter fraud, and people voting illegally during the campaign, and he continues to maintain that belief based on studies and evidence that people have presented to him.
Trump "continues to maintain that belief.
He won overwhelmingly with 306 electoral votes, the most since any Republican since Reagan.
I think there's been studies. There's one that came out of Pew in 2008 that showed 14 percent of people who voted were noncitizens.
Two and a half packs by noon. I talked to my doctor about it, he said it's no problem.
There is this constant theme to undercut the enormous support that he has. And I think that it's just unbelievably frustrating when you're continually told it's not big enough, it's not good enough, you can't win.
We're here on day two. Let's not prejudge what we may or may not do in the future.
Israel continues to be a huge ally of the United States. He wants to grow closer with Israel to make sure that it gets the full respect that it deserves in the Middle East.
He has gone above and beyond in what he has done to make sure there are no conflicts.
The U.S. is going to make sure that we protect our interests there. It's a question of if those islands are in fact in international waters and not part of China proper, then yeah, we're going to make sure that we defend international territories from being taken over by one country. I think, as we develop further, we'll have more information on it.
Infrastructure continues to be a huge priority.
Our intention is never to lie to you.
Trump "looks forward to hearing their ideas about how we can work together to bring more jobs back to this industry.
That's where the priority's going to be, and then we're going to continue to work through the entire number of folks that are here illegally. We are at the early stages in this decision-making process. If it was already a decision, then we wouldn't be going through a process.
I think we'll have a nomination within the next couple of weeks. He continues to make that a priority of his.
And it's frustrating for not just him, but I think for so many of us that are trying to work to get this message out. I will tell you it's not just about crowd size. It's about this constant, you know, He's not going to run, if he runs he's going to drop out, if he runs he can't win. No way he can win Pennsylvania..
Our intention is never to lie to you. There are times when you guys tweet something out, or write a story, and you publish a correction. That doesn't mean that you were intentionally trying to deceive readers and the American people, does it? I think we should be afforded the same opportunity. I'm going to come out here and tell you the facts as I know them. If we make a mistake, I'll do my best to correct it.
I think if there's a way that we can combat ISIS with any country, whether it's Russia or anyone else, and we have a shared national interest in that, sure, we'll take it. We're not going to get together with people under the guise of defeating ISIS if that's not truly their guise. I think he has ordered it. At that time, he will continue to have conversations about what he wants from them and the joint chiefs.
We want to be sure our interests are protected. We're going into a country for a cause. He wants to be sure America is getting something out of it for the commitment and sacrifice it is making.
Where was the apology to the president of the United States? Where was the apology to the millions of people who thought that it was racially insensitive?
There are times when you tweet something out or write a story and you publish a correction. That doesn't mean you were trying to deceive readers or the American people, does it? I think we should be afforded the same opportunity. When we're right, say we're right. When we're wrong, say we're wrong. But it's not always wrong and negative.
We are at the very beginning stages of even discussing this subject.
That's where the priority's going to be, and then we're going to continue to work through the entire number of folks that are here illegally. He has already started to work with Congress on the appropriations avenue of that. And so he is doing everything he can to direct agencies and Congress to commence with that work as soon as possible.
It wasn't like we made them up out of thin air.
When you wake up and that's what you see every day...yeah, it is disappointing. Some days we do the right thing. Same days we are successful...but it's not always wrong and negative.
We're excited to open up into ... the fold here a diverse group of journalists from around the country who may not have the convenience or funding to travel to Washington. I think this can benefit us all by giving a platform for voices that are not necessarily based here.
He has resigned from the company as he said he would before he took office. Don and Eric are fully in charge of the company.
This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration period, both in person and around the globe….. These attempts to lessen the enthusiasm of the inauguration are shameful and wrong.
Yesterday at a time when our nation and the world watched the peaceful transition of power ...some members of the media were engaged in deliberately false reporting.
Photographs of the inaugural proceedings were intentionally framed in a way...to minimize the enormous support that had gathered on the National Mall.
...These attempts to lessen the enthusiasm of the inauguration are shameful and wrong.
The president will welcome his first foreign leader this Thursday when the United Kingdom's Theresa May will come to Washington on Friday.
There's been a lot of talk in the media about holding Donald Trump accountable. And I'm here to tell you that it goes two ways. We're going to hold the press accountable as well.
Trump "delivered them a powerful and important message: He told them he has their back, and they were grateful for that.
As long as he serves as the messenger for this incredible movement he will take his message directly to the American people, where his focus will always be.
These attempts to lessen the enthusiasm of the inauguration are shameful and wrong.
No one had numbers.
I think you will see those happen very shortly.
He is committed to not just Day 1, but Day 2, Day 3 of enacting an agenda of real change, and I think that you're going to see that in the days and weeks to come.
It's going to be a very personal and sincere statement about his vision for the country. He will discuss what it means to be an American and the challenges that we face.
I don't think the idea that president-elect Trump is having a reception at Trump Hotel should be a shocker to anybody.
Why are they not moving on Elaine Chau, Ben Carson and Nikki Haley?
There is really no excuse for the delay tactics and the partisanship displayed by the Democrats.
Americans should focus on whether he's hiring the best and the brightest.
It's just frankly a question of sequencing.
The reason for this commitment and expansion is because of the president-elect's focus on creating better business climate here in the United States.
Then there are some other ones that I expect him to sign with respect to a couple of issues that have been high on his priority list.
This is something very personal to him. He wants to talk about his vision, where he sees this country and where we are right now.
We'd love for every member of Congress to attend but if they don't, we've got some great seats for others to partake in. It's a shame that these folks don't want to be part of the peaceful transfer of power.
Today we observe the birthday of #MartinLutherKing. @realDonaldTrump will meet with Martin Luther King III to discuss his legacy #MLKDAY.
The call centered around the logistics of setting up a call with the president of Russia and the president-elect after he was sworn in, and they exchanged logistical information on how to initiate and schedule that call. That was it, plain and simple.
The president-elect was pleased to have played a role in that decision by Amazon.
The president-elect met with heads of several of the tech companies and urged them to keep their jobs and production inside the United States.
It's frankly outrageous and highly irresponsible for a left-wing blog, that was openly hostile to the president-elect's campaign, to drop highly salacious and flat-out false information on the internet just days before he takes the Oval Office.
For all the talk lately about fake news, this political witch hunt by some in the media is based on some of the most flimsy reporting, and is frankly shameful and disgraceful.
A thing like that should have never been written, it should never have been had and certainly should never have been released.
I do look there first, because that's what's going to drive the news.
Everyone who has a hearing this week has their paperwork in. They're listening, they're learning, they're preparing.
We have an unbelievable all-star group of nominees. I think each one of them is going to be confirmed with not only Republican votes but with Democratic votes as well.
I think the idea that he's approaching this in a very logical, very methodical way ... is the right way to go about it.
I think the president-elect is more skeptical of the conclusions that are drawn from the raw data rather than the intelligence in the raw data that's provided. There is no truth to this idea of restructuring the intelligence community infrastructure. All transition activities are for information gathering purposes and all discussions are tentative.
There is no truth to this idea of restructuring the intelligence community infrastructure. All transition activities are for information gathering purposes and all discussions are tentative.
He's prepared to listen and understand how they got to the conclusions they did.
There is no truth to this idea of restructuring the intelligence community infrastructure. It is 100 percent false.
We haven't ruled out the possibility of additional sanctions.
In this case, the tweet was specific to General Motors. But I think you've seen an overall philosophy during the campaign and since he was elected to stand up for American workers and make sure that American companies don't benefit from moving their companies overseas and leaving American workers behind.
Will come in time.
It's not a question of strengthening or weakening, it's a question of priorities.
There is zero evidence that they influenced the election. The idea that we're jumping to conclusions before we have a final report is irresponsible. He's going to talk about his conclusions and where he thinks things stand. He's not going to reveal anything that was privileged or shared with him classified.
I think it freaks the mainstream media out that he has this following of over 45-plus million people that follow him on social media, that he can have a direct conversation. He doesn't have to have it funneled through the media. You're going to see – absolutely you're going to see Twitter.
So there is a question about whether there's a political retribution here versus a diplomatic response.
One of the questions that we have is why the magnitude of this? I mean you look at 35 people being expelled, two sites being closed down, the question is, is that response in proportion to the actions taken? Maybe it was; maybe it wasn't but you have to think about that.
Absolutely, you're going to see Twitter.
This is just the tip of the iceberg.
There's not going to be [an arms race] because he's going to ensure that other countries get the message that he's not going to sit back and allow that. And what's going to happen is they will come to their senses and we will all be just fine.
But other countries need to be put on notice that he is not going to sit back and allow them to undermine our safety and our sovereignty. He is going to match other countries and take action.
It was in response to a lot of countries. Russia, China and others are talking about expanding their nuclear capability. ... But just to be clear: The president isn't saying we're going to do this. He said, unless they come to their senses.' It's a warning to them that this president isn't going to sit idly by.
He is going to do what it takes to protect this country and if another country or countries want to threaten our safety and sovereignty, he is going to do what it takes. If another country expands theirs (nuclear capability), the United States will act in kind ... But I do believe that it won't happen because I think what they have seen, domestically and internationally, is this is a man of action.
He put out a statement about the Egyptian motion that was going to happen at the U.N. It was revoked. President al-Sisi called, Prime Minister Netanyahu called. He is getting results, whether it's is domestically or abroad.
The questionnaire was not authorized or part of our standard protocol. The person who sent it has been properly counseled.
The announcement will be in January.
With so many iconic properties and successful entities, moving the announcement to January ensures the legal team has ample time to ensure the proper protocols are put in place so his sole focus will remain on the country and achieving his ambitious agenda with the help of the world-class cabinet he has built.
I believe there are people within these agencies who are upset with the outcome of the election.
Anyone's personal view isn't what matters.
Until Donald Trump says it, it's not official.
We grew our majorities in 2014 and we continue to grow as a party up and down the ballot and from coast to coast. So, I think that the growth and opportunity report 4 years ago laid out where the party should go. It was followed and we've grown.
We have zero tolerance for any threat to the integrity of elections. When we were informed of an alleged incident, we immediately cut all ties to the company.
We are working to evaluate the appropriate messaging going forward.
The RNC is continuing our historic ground game efforts in Iowa to ensure Republican victories up and down the ticket on Election Day.
The Clinton campaign cannot come close to our output.
I think people want him to be authentic. They appreciate he's not a scripted politician, but there's a recognition that words do matter.
This is the same story over and over again.
The entire system needs to be re-looked at.
A simple Google search of three phrases comes up with everything from Sparkle Pony to John Legend to Akon.
Paul's in charge.
They're always willing to call out everybody else but when it's their side that disrupts, that creates violence, that ruins public property, there's silence.
It's another exciting day in Republican politics.
And for decades, the grassroots-driven, democratic process has been transparent and effective. This cycle is no different.
Obviously we would love all of the candidates to participate, but each campaign ultimately makes their own decision what's in their best interest.
The big point here is the president himself knows what his involvement was and that's zero.
