White House Clarifies Trump Remark

White House Clarifies Trump Remark

Chuck Schumer on Friday to discuss the 2010 law known as "Obamacare", which Trump said "is badly broken, big premiums".

While the implication is clearly meant to be something along the lines of a calamitous nuclear war, Trump appeared much more interested in elaborating on what in his opinion hasn't worked than offering any specifics on what the "one thing" is. "North Korea, Iran. There's several examples there", she quickly responded.

The Pentagon referred a question for clarification to the White House and said the Defense Department's job was to "present the president military options and carry out orders".

But Trump later indicated he'll weigh in soon.

U.S. to announce repeal of clean power plan
Scott Pruitt will sign a proposal tomorrow that would eliminate the Obama administration's signature climate change rule, the U.S. Though limited to its participating states, the latest RGGI agreement will go further than the Clean Power Plan in this region.

In an exaggerated accent he said: "We are also praying for the people of Puerto Rico".

See Tom Brune and Emily Ngo's story for Newsday. It has taken more than two weeks for some parts of Puerto Rico to receive aid after Hurricane Maria knocked out access to power and clean water in the struggling territory.

"I wouldn't take it word for word", Trump's budget director Mick Mulvaney backtracked Wednesday. It should have been handled during the Obama administration. "Not #1", Trump tweeted. The State Department denied that Tillerson made such comments. "That was fake news by NBC". "I think we have some serious world issues here".

A lot of attention has been focused on President Donald Trump's cryptic "calm before the storm" remarks that he delivered during a White House photo-op last night. "Maybe it's the calm before the storm", Trump said.

Could Hurricane Nate raise gas prices?
New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu warned the city's residents on Saturday that the storm could cause severe flooding in some areas. It had weakened slightly and had maximum sustained winds of 85mph (137kph), according to the National Hurricane Centre.

Pressed further on how seriously the public and adversaries should take his comments, Sanders replied: "I think you can take the President protecting the American people always extremely serious".

Tillerson's reaffirmation of his support for Trump prompted the President to say his secretary of state had refuted the story about the reported insult. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and Patty Murray, D-Wash., who have been discussing a limited bipartisan deal to stabilize state-level markets for individual health insurance policies.

Congress will have a 60-day review period to decide whether to reimpose sanctions on Iran that were lifted by the agreement.

The first lady drew flak when she wore stilettos as she boarded her flight to Puerto Rico.
