    Trump Speech Tag

    President Donald Trump tweeted today that he will give a national address on the situation on our southern border. He will travel to the area on Thursday. After hours of  "will they, won't they" coverage,  the broadcast networks and cable news networks decided they will broadcast Trump on Tuesday night. Only CBS confirmed the broadcast by Monday evening. However, their decision led to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to demand equal airtime.

    President Donald Trump locked horns with CNN's Jim Acosta. As usual, Acosta used the press conference to create a spectacle, refusing to cede his turn to the next reporter when Trump had moved on and hanging on to the mic when a staffer tried to take it to pass to the next reporter. When Acosta kept on, Trump told him to stop. From Fox News:
    “That's enough. Put down the mic,” he ordered Acosta, as a White House aide tried to take the microphone from him, only for Acosta to initially refuse to turn it over and push her arm down. “I tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them. You are a rude, terrible person, you shouldn’t be working for CNN.”

    President Donald Trump held a live press conference from New York today and took some questions on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. From Fox News:
    In response to a question from Fox News' John Roberts about why the White House did not ask the FBI to investigate allegations made against Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford, the president responded that "there was nothing to investigate." "They didn't know the location, they didn't know the time, they didn't know the year. They didn't know anything," Trump said.

    The hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh dominated the headlines this week, which means you may have forgotten that the government faces a possible shutdown if Congress cannot get legislation to fund the government. Trump threatened during the week to shut down the government if he doesn't get funding for the wall. His tune changed right before a rally in Billings, Montana, when he told Fox News that he doesn't want to do anything to harm the Republicans going into November.

    President Trump gave a great speech at the NRA on Friday, and given the venue, his speech was primarily focused on our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.  Some of what he had to say, however, has ruffled some feathers in the UK and France. The speech is very campaign-esque and as such is fun to watch.  He covers everything from jobs, North Korea, Kanye, and Mueller to the focus of his speech: gun rights in America.

    Tuesday, Trump announced he'd signed a memorandum, requesting the Department of Justice draft regulations that would ban bump stocks and any attachment that would turn a semi-automatic firearm into an automatic-like weapon. Trump has been open to regulating gun modifications like the bump stock since the Vegas shooting, which left 58 people dead. After the Vegas shooting, Trump asked the DOJ to review whether devices like the bump stock were legal under current law.
