White House Press Briefing – 10/10.2019
President Trump Keeps Promise to Tame Bureaucracy that Runs Roughshod Over Americans
“When President Trump took office in 2017, he promised the American people that he would clean up Washington’s regulatory overreach. He pledged to make government accountable to the people. And he has made good on his promises by driving the largest deregulation effort since President Reagan took office over 30 years ago,” Acting White House Management and Budget Director Russ Vought writes for Fox News.

Yesterday, the President took another important action: He signed two executive orders that will protect “Americans against secret or unlawful bureaucratic interpretations of rules and guards against unfair or unexpected penalties for non-compliance.” Click here to read more.

“How are middle-income Americans doing two and a half years after President Trump took office? Better than ever,” Grover Norquist writes in Fox Business. Real median income is up $4,114 since President Trump took office. “From the first day of George W. Bush’s administration to the last day of Obama’s the median income increased about $1,000.”

While the far-left media keeps hoping for a recession, “the hard data, which refers to actual numbers about the economy such as unemployment and retail sales, continues to reflect economic strength,” Fred Imbert reports for CNBC. “The U.S. unemployment rate fell to a 50-year low in September while retail sales grew more than expected in August.”

“The day after the 2016 presidential election, the Democrats began talking about impeachment. They haven’t let up since. The fact that they stated their intent to pursue impeachment before Trump was even in office reveals that they are motivated by hatred,” Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) writes in The Daily Signal.

Ivanka Trump, daughter of President Donald Trump and advisor to the president, will be visiting Kansas City along with U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, for a child care roundtable” today, KMBC 9 News reports. “Part of the goal is to discuss improving access to child care for working families.”

White House Press Release 10/09/2019
Why Can’t Dems Treat Trump as Fairly as Republicans Did Bill Clinton?
The White House informed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi yesterday that “the Executive Branch won’t play along with the lawless ‘inquiry’ that House Democrats have been engaged in,” the New York Post editorial board writes.

“White House counsel Pat Cipollone’s letter to Pelosi spells out the problems. While the Constitution clearly gives the House the power to begin impeachment proceedings, it does not give the speaker the privilege of declaring them all by herself.”

Precedent is on President Trump’s side here, the Post writes. Unlike impeachment inquiries against Presidents Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon, Speaker Pelosi never called a floor vote to open proceedings. Instead, House Democrats are deposing witnesses behind closed doors, denying Republican colleagues fair time to ask questions, and “leaking negative info and withholding favorable facts — feeding fanatically anti-Trump media to repeat slanted interpretations as fact.”

The letter: Read the White House’s full response to Democrat leaders.Once again, the media got a key detail wrong about the “whistleblower” attack against President Trump. “The whistleblower’s possible bias was not that he was simply a registered Democrat. It was that he had a significant tie to one of the Democratic presidential candidates currently vying to challenge President Trump in next year’s election,” Byron York writes in the Washington Examiner.“First lady Melania Trump announced on Tuesday afternoon that she had—ceremonial shovel in hand—marked the start of construction for a new White House tennis pavilion on the South Lawn,” Kate Bennett reports for CNN.”President Trump awarded the Medal of Freedom Tuesday to Edwin Meese III, calling the former attorney general ‘a titan’ and ‘a star,'” Marisa Schultz reports for the New York Post. Meese served as U.S. Attorney General under President Ronald Reagan.

White House Press Release 10/01/2019
Trump’s Two Big Wins for Farmers, Manufacturers, Workers vs. Dems’ Impeachment Squad
“The radical Democrats’ impeachment squad and much of the American media are missing a great presidency. Just last week, in a single day, President Trump signed a historic Japanese trade deal in New York as a White House-led team negotiated a radical reform of the Universal Postal Union in Geneva,” White House Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Peter Navarro writes for Fox Business.

“Together, these two quintessentially Trump deals will net American farmers, manufacturers and workers billions of dollars and create thousands of jobs.”

Click here to read more.“I want to urge everybody who’s fair to never use the word ‘impeachment’ for the current political process, because it has nothing to do with an impeachment. This is a legislative coup d’etat. It is an effort by the hard left, the news media, and the deep state to destroy the president chosen by the American people. This is a project they’ve been involved in since election night 2016,” former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich writes for Fox News. “No one should be confused by the current phony, one-sided partisan effort. It’s not in any way an impeachment process. It is a denial of the American Constitution [and] a repudiation of the American people’s choice of president.”In The Daily Wire, Ryan Saavedra reports that a letter dated from May from the Australian government directly disputes the accuracy of a New York Times report claiming President Trump “pushed” Australia to help “discredit” the Mueller investigation. “The development comes after The New York Times tried to suggest that it was a scandal for Trump to ask for Australia to cooperate with an ongoing Department of Justice (DOJ) [probe] into the origins of the Russia investigation.””Apple is boosting its commitment to the American workforce, part of a push to invest hundreds of billions into the U.S. economy. In a major announcement on Monday, Apple said it will build its redesigned Mac Pro in Austin, Texas,” Paul Conner reports for Fox Business. “We’re proud to be building it in Austin,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a statement. “We thank the administration for their support enabling this opportunity.”
