REAL NEWS PRESIDENT TRUMP DOESN'T WANT YOU TO MISS
President Trump on 'Solid Legal Ground' to End the Crisis on our Southern Border
-New York Daily News
“President Trump will have the law on his side when he uses the power of his office to secure the U.S. border with Mexico,” writes former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Joseph DiGenova. “The current political reality in Washington ensures that the crisis on our southern border will continue to go unresolved unless the executive branch steps in. Fortunately, both the Constitution and the Congress have placed the authority to do so firmly with the President of the United States.”
Where Trump Won: Historic ICE Funding, Triple Wall Miles, Killed ‘Poison Pills’
-Washington Examiner
Paul Bedard reports that “Congress approved historic funding levels for Immigration and Customs Enforcement and border patrol, added miles to the border wall, and increased the cap on criminal illegal immigrants that can be jailed. Insiders who worked on the deal said that compared to going along with a spending continuing resolution, the GOP scored several wins.”
Wilbur Ross, Ivanka Trump Introduce Workforce Advisory Board
-Bloomberg
“The chief executives of Apple Inc., Lockheed Martin Corp. and Walmart Inc., are among 25 prominent Americans who will shape Trump administration efforts to develop job training programs to meet the changing demands of U.S. employers,” Margaret Talev reports. “Ivanka Trump, in a statement, said the board will ‘ensure inclusive growth.’”
Boom: Best Economic Optimism in 16 Years, 50% ‘Better Off’ Under Trump
-Washington Examiner
“Public optimism in their personal economy has hit a 16-year high under President Trump, according to a new survey. Some 69 percent told Gallup that they expect their personal finances to be even better next year,” Paul Bedard reports. “What’s more, the survey company said that 50 percent believe they are ‘better off’ than just a year ago when the current economic surge was kicking in.”
Job Openings Hit Record High of 7.3 Million in December
-Washington Examiner
“The number of job openings hit a record high of 7.3 million in December, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Tuesday in a sign of the labor market’s strength,” Joseph Lawler reports. “The construction industry recorded 382,000 new posts, far more than ever before . . . In the past three months, the economy has added an average of 241,000 net new jobs a month.”
Trump’s AI Plan Is a Good Start
-Bloomberg
The Bloomberg editorial board writes that President Trump is launching a smart artificial intelligence plan “to ensure the U.S. keeps up in an increasingly crucial industry. By any measure, AI holds immense promise. It’s likely to boost productivity, stimulate demand, encourage innovation, vastly improve consumer products, eliminate waste, and much more.”
Trump's Free Market Approach to Drug Pricing Will Help Lower Costs
-The Hill
“I agree with the Trump administration’s free market approach” to healthcare, Dr. Marc Siegel writes. “My patients want to know what their medicines cost, even if their insurance ends up covering it. In fact it is ‘price opacity’ that has enabled health costs to soar, while patients are blinded . . . The Trump administration and HHS should be applauded for their efforts to extend and expand price transparency.”
High Speed Broadband Is Fostering a New Era of Innovation for Rural America
-Agri-Pulse
“From the first days of his Administration, President Trump has made it a priority to invest in our Nation’s infrastructure and bring prosperity to rural America once again,” White House Deputy Chief of Staff Chris Liddell and White House Deputy Chief Technology Officer Michael Kratsios write. “Agencies are removing regulatory red tape and identifying opportunities for coordination, making it easier for the private sector to invest and build safe and reliable broadband networks to the areas that need access most.”
