Donald J. Trump turned 71 years old on Wednesday. Trump acknowledged he is facing a possible criminal probe for obstruction of justice. Trump confirmed this on his social media.
I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 16, 2017
Despite the phony Witch Hunt going on in America, the economic & jobs numbers are great. Regulations way down, jobs and enthusiasm way up!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 16, 2017
After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my "collusion with the Russians," nobody has been able to show any proof. Sad!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 16, 2017
Mike Pence hires a lawyer for the possible probe into his dealings with Russia.
Trump is also giving Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, 4,000 troops to serve in combat. The assault in Afghanistan is an endless war that Trump and Barack Obama inherited. Trump is going against his word to stay out of conflict.
He will head to Florida today. Trump is imposing a travel ban again. But this time he is trying to unravel United States relations with Cuba. And he got his ideas from his old foe, "Little Marco."
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is a failed presidential candidate. He was Trump's fiercest critics during the election. Now he's plugging a bug in Trump's ear when it comes to Raul Castro and his "murderous" regime.
Trump claims that American money goes to the Cuban military. He wants to put a stop to it.
The business community are opposed to any changes. Even some in Trump's inner circle believe this is a bad idea.
Trump is once again trying to create a distraction from the investigation. By giving the junk food media a story to cover, it takes the pressure off him and the Republicans and their secret healthcare repeal bill.
The senate is working in secret on repealing the Affordable Care Act. It's drawing massive criticism from Democrats, medical officials and some Republicans.
Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) is still recovering from his gunshot wound. He is in critical condition as the doctors try to save him. He was shot along with four others. A terrorist shot them while they were practicing for the Congressional Baseball Game.
The Democrats beaten the Republicans in the game. The Democrats donated the trophy to the Republicans as a sign of goodwill.
