TIME magazine unveils its new cover featuring President Donald Trump in stormy waters. The cover comes after the FBI raided the office of Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.
As the sun was setting on the evening of April 9, President Donald Trump gathered the Vice President, senior military leaders and his newly minted National Security Adviser around the long wooden table in the Cabinet Room to discuss one of the gravest decisions any Commander in Chief can make: whether to use military force against a foreign threat. The Syrian government had allegedly used chemical weapons on a town near Damascus, killing at least 40 innocent civilians, violating international law and crossing a strategic red line Trump himself had drawn nearly a year earlier.
Donald Trump:“The wall will save hundreds of billions of dollars – many many times what it’s going to cost!”
Visiting California for the first time since assuming the presidency, President Donald Trump has called his wish for a border wall with Mexico a national necessity, as he accused the state of putting the “entire nation at risk” by not dealing with illegal immigration.
“If you don’t have a wall system, we’re not going to have a country”, Mr Trump said.
The President was touring eight wall prototypes, erected near the border in the San Diego area, that stand as the chief concrete progress towards one of his central campaign promises. Congress has so far not allocated the billions of dollars needed to build the larger structure, with the Trump administration seeking $18bn (£12.9bn) for the first phase.
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson on Monday said he does not always agree with President Trump.
“I’m a member of this administration and I don’t agree with the president about everything that he says or of how it is said,” Carson said while speaking at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Ga., receiving applause for his remark.
“If the way you say things is so inflammatory that people can’t hear your message, it is not helpful. And that is why I don’t do that anymore,” he added at a service honoring the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
President Donald Trump:”I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great great wall on our southern border and I’ll have Mexico pay for that wall.”
Construction of eight border wall prototypes is under way as the Department of Homeland Security seeks to advance President Donald Trump’s landmark promise.
The construction includes four concrete wall prototypes and four prototypes using “other materials.” Construction began Sept. 26 in San Diego, Calif., close to the U.S.-Mexico border. The prototypes are expected to be finished near the end of October.
