Trump to Trudeau: ‘Didn’t you guys burn down the White House?’

President Trump falsely claimed Canada burned down the White House during the War of 1812 while on a phone call with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau last month, CNN reported on Wednesday. It is not clear from the report whether Trump was joking. According to CNN, on May 25, Trump and Trudeau were discussing the Trump administration imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada. Trump says the tariffs are a matter of national security, something Trudeau reportedly contested during the phone call, sources familiar with the discussion told CNN. "Didn't you guys burn down the White House?" Trump reportedly said in response. Trump was apparently referring to the War of 1812, when the White House and much of Washington, D.C., was burned by the British. The

WASHINGTON — President Trump's personal assistant, John McEntee, was abruptly fired Monday over what are being described as "security" reasons, according to several news reports.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QU2bbaXTpNY The New York Times is reporting McEntee apparently lost his security clearance, joining other White House staffers including Trump's son-in-law and senior policy adviser Jared Kushner who have seen their status downgraded in the wake of the Rob Porter scandal. Revelations that Porter, the White House staff secretary, had access to classified information despite accusations of domestic violence against him prompted a review of security procedures within the White House. Other outlets, including CNN, were reporting that McEntee was being investigated for "s

The White House said Jared Kushner will not be affected by any policy changes made regarding security clearances, even though he still has an interim security clearance 13 months into the job. “Nothing that has taken place will affect the valuable work that Jared is doing,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said at the White House briefing on Tuesday. Chief of Staff John Kelly last week ordered changes to how the White House manages security clearance investigations, after staffer Rob Porter continued to access top secret material even after claims of domestic abuse by two ex-wives were reported to the FBI. Porter had been working under an interim security clearance, raising scrutiny over the 30 to 40 White House staffers who are also working with interim security clearances, including

SEN. SHUMER denounced the White House’s new amnesty offer as inadequate, just one day after he said had endorsed a border wall because it won’t be built. Schumer’s conditional rejection of the new White House amnesty giveaway is muted and suggests that Schumer and his allies expect to pressure GOP Senators into yet more concessions. https://twitter.com/SenSchumer/status/956915574034124800 https://twitter.com/SenSchumer/status/956915873788452864 Dan Horowitz, editor of Conservative Review, says Democrats will feign opposition to the amnesty to encourage further negotiations and concessions from uninformed and confrontation-averse GOP legislators. “They will have plenty of messaging about noble ‘dreamers,’ improving ‘border security’ … Schumer is very familiar with the politics

White House Proposal Extends Amnesty for 1.8 Million Illegals in Exchange for 25 Billion for Wall, End of Chain Migration, Visa Lottery

The White House revealed a proposal to extend legal status and a path for citizenship for 1.8 million illegal immigrants brought to the country as children in exchange for $25 billion in funding for the wall, an end to chain migration across the board, and an end to the visa lottery program. The bill’s framework would apply to the roughly 690,000 illegal immigrants who registered for the DACA program started by former President Barack Obama as well as illegal immigrants who did not apply. A senior administration official told reporters that the 1.8 million number would be restricted by minor adjustments to timeframes and dates of entry issues. “The argument is by some people in Congress is that there is another 690,000 roughly that never got around to registering but fall into the gene

White House Dr. Ronny Jackson praised Donald Trump and spoke in detail about the president’s physical and mental health on Tuesday, calling it “excellent.” Reporters in the White House press briefing appeared baffled that, despite reports of Trump’s intake of fast food, Dr. Jackson said his overall health was great for a 71-year-old man. “It is called genetics,” Jackson said. “I don’t know. Some people have great genes … he has incredible genes and that’s the way God made him.” Jackson has served as the presidential physician for the two previous presidents — Barack Obama and George W. Bush. He said that despite his good health, he spoke with the president about losing 10-15 pounds through diet and exercise. The president agreed. “He is more enthusiastic about the diet part th

Spying on Trump Team Tucker Carlson clashed with a Democratic strategist tonight over the bombshell charges that the Obama administration collected and spread information from surveillance of President Trump’s transition team. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said Wednesday that some of the communications of the Trump transition team were "monitored" after the election as part of an "incidental collection." Tucker pointed out that the reaction to this whole story has been extremely partisan, with Democrats sounding the alarm about possible ties between the Trump team and Russia, and Republicans focusing on the sources of the illegal intelligence leaks. "Both may be missing the actual scandal, which the political use of classified intell

The White House is installing senior aides atop major federal agencies to shadow the administration's Cabinet secretaries, creating a direct line with loyalists who can monitor and shape White House goals across the federal bureaucracy. The aides chosen by the White House — given the title of senior adviser in each agency — have already been responsible for hiring at some departments and crafting the blueprint of Trump policy before the Cabinet members win Senate confirmation to take office. They have worked with congressional aides, lobbyists and others seeking influence in the new administration. The arrangement, described by four people involved in the transition planning, appears designed to help the White House maintain control over its priorities despite pledging to give Ca
