White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney told a private gathering that Trump is desperate for more immigrants to keep the US economy growing.
Donald Trump seems to have a very unusual relationship with White House Adviser Stephen Miller, who has been accused of white supremacism.
In fact, the president is now relying on the 33 year-old immigration hardliner more and more every day. Miller was reportedly behind the recent purge of the Department of Homeland Security, including the firing of DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
Washington, D.C. is a city of distractions, and Donald Trump knows that every time he posts an outrageous tweet that all attention will be focused on that instead of on something that is more important.
Small businesses across the U.S. are facing shortages of temporary workers because of the Trump administration’s new limits on hiring foreign workers through a visa program, NBC News reported Monday.
After taking a day off for some unexplained reason, President Donald Trump was back on Twitter Sunday morning addressing many of his favorite topics, including:
- Attacking his former personal attorney Michael Cohen,
- Defending his son, Donald Trump, Jr.,
- Threatening to shut down down the government,
- Demanding Congress give in to his demands on immigration, and
- Repeating the ridiculous claim that his favorable poll numbers are higher than any other Republican president, including Abraham Lincoln.
He wrote first, “Do you think the Fake News Media will ever report on this tweet from Michael?” referring to a report that Cohen had complimented Trump Junior. “So proud of @DonaldJTrumpJr for being open, honest and transparent to the American people,” Cohen wrote on Twitter on July 11, 2017, attaching a photo of Trump Jr. for good measure. “This nonsense needs to stop!”
A record number of Americans in the latest Gallup Poll say they believe that more immigration is a positive thing for the United States. The new poll, released on Thursday, said that fully 75 percent of Americans are of the opinion that immigration is good for the nation, while just 19 percent said it is bad for the country. According to Gallup,the percentage of poll respondents who indicated that immigration is positive went up 4 percentage points when compared to their 2017 poll asking the same questions.
Donald Trump’s policy of ripping children away from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border was supposed to push Democrats to negotiate in Congress so he could get tougher immigration laws and his beloved border wall. But instead it may end up costing Republicans their majorities in Congress.
On Tuesday the United Nations called on the Trump administration to “immediately halt” its policy of separating children from their parents at the U.S. border with Mexico. The request came from the United Nations human rights office which has heavily criticized the administration for their actions of taking children away from their parents after they cross into the United States from Mexico.
In California on Wednesday President Donald Trump said some immigrants in the country illegally were “animals” and vowed to toughen the country’s immigration laws and their enforcement.
