President Donald Trump wants the Senate to pass the budget deal worked out a few days ago and will sign the legislation, even though it will add significantly to the national debt, acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney told Fox News on Sunday.
“When the Democrats won the House, everybody knew we were going to end up spending more money,” Mulvaney said, adding that the agreement is still a victory for the Trump administration.
“The Democrats wanted to limit our policies on the border, they wanted to limit our policies regarding pro-life, they wanted to limit our policies regarding deregulation — and we won on every single one of those,” Mulvaney said. “So, did we spend more money than we wanted to? Yes. Did we get a lot in return. Yes.”
When asked what happened to Trump’s promises as a presidential candidate to quickly balance the budget, Mulvaney placed the blame on the Democrats.
He insisted on deflecting all blame for the deficit even when Fox News host Chris Wallace pointed out that the Republicans controlled Congress for the first two years of the administration.
Past presidents generally do not make public statements criticizing sitting presidents, but former President Barack Obama and his first lady Michelle ostensibly did so Saturday.
The veiled shots at President Donald Trump’s attacks on the poorest parts of Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., district in Baltimore came via Twitter.
“I’ve always been proud of what this team accomplished during my administration. But more than what we did, I’m proud of how they’re continuing to fight for an America that’s better.”
He linked to a July 26 op-ed in The Washington Post, headlined “We are African Americans, we are patriots, and we refuse to sit idly by,” and signed by 149 African Americans who served in the Obama administration.
Former first lady Michelle also tweeted Saturday a video of a Baltimore dance routine done to her famed motto “when they go low, we go high”:
“On #NationalDanceDay, I’m shouting out the Lethal Ladies, a Baltimore STEP team who I saw perform back in 2017. I’m so proud of you all — and everyone who’s dancing today!”
An old quote from the 1980s has resurfaced in which former Vice President Joe Biden, the leading Democrat in the race for the White House, bragged about Delaware siding with the South during the Civil War.
According to Rolling Stone, the quote appeared in the Philadelphia Inquirer on September 20, 1987.
“We [Delawareans] were on the South’s side in the Civil War,” Biden is quoted as saying during a campaign speech he delivered in Alabama.
The same story also claims that Biden bragged to others about how he was given an award by former Alabama Gov. George Wallace, a high-profile racist during his day.
The Biden campaign responded with a statement to Rolling Stone that labeled President Donald Trump a “racist maniac.”
“As a young Senator, Joe Biden declared that if George Wallace — an unhinged, racist maniac — became the presidential nominee of his party, he would support Gerald Ford,” the campaign said. “If more GOP leaders had a scintilla of that same courage in 2016, they wouldn’t be debasing themselves this very minute by defending another unhinged, racist maniac.”
Delaware was a border state during the Civil War and supported slavery at the time.
Biden came under fire last month during a Democratic presidential debate when Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., criticized him for opposing busing during the 1970s.

The world awaits a ‘measured’ US response to Iran
After weeks of mounting tension and a war of words, both the United States and Iran have refrained so far from further escalating their conflict after aU.S. drone was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missileWednesday evening.

The New York Timesreported that President Trump had approved the strikes, but then called them off.

Fred Fleitz, who also served as chief of staff to current National Security Adviser John Bolton, told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that thepresident has acted responsibly and with restraint but that the use of force against Iran “is on the table.”

We Get It No One Wants WAR With IRAN, But Yesterday It Was Mining A Oil Tanker, Today Blowing Up Our Drones, Do You Want To See Tomorrow?
Iran shoots down US drone
Amid heightened tensions with the United States, a U.S. Navy MQ-4C high-altitude drone was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missileWednesday evening over the Strait of Hormuz in international airspace, a U.S. official told Fox News. A commander for Iran’s Revolutionary Guard said the shooting sends “a clear … See More message” to the U.S. He said while Iran has no intention of war with anyone, it’s “ready for war.”
The shootdown of the RQ-4 Global Hawk comes after the U.S. military previously alleged Iran fired a missile at another drone last week that responded to the attack on two oil tankers near the Gulf of Oman. The U.S. blames Iran for the attack on the ships; Tehran has denied the allegations. Iran recently has quadrupled its production of low-enriched uranium and threatened to boost its enrichment closer to weapons-grade levels, trying to pressure Europe for new terms to the 2015 nuclear deal. In recent weeks, the U.S. has sped an aircraft carrier to the Mideast and approved sending approximately 1,000 additional troops “to address air, naval, and ground-based threats” in the region. Mysterious attacks also have targeted oil tankers as Iranian-allied Houthi rebels launched bomb-laden drones into Saudi Arabia.

And in the meantime, they’re not doing any work in Congress,” Trump told Sean Hannity, calling the party “unhinged.”
Hicks is executive vice president and chief communications officer for Fox Corp., of which Fox News is a subsidiary.
