WATCH: Pence stops Trump from leaving executive order signing ceremony without signing the order — again

Published

on

For the second time this year, President Donald Trump tried to leave an executive order signing ceremony before he actually signed the order.

On Thursday, the president finished his remarks about an executive order he was about to sign that would weaken key insurance regulations of the Affordable Care Act. He then started shaking hands with people in the room and started walking definitively toward the exit.

At that point, Vice President Mike Pence had to walk over to him, tap him on the arm, and remind him that he still needed to sign the executive order.

Pence was also on hand this past spring when Trump started to leave a signing ceremony for executive orders related to American trade policy.

Watch the video of Trump trying to leave the signing ceremony below.

Seem Verma, President Donald Trump's administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), came out swinging on Monday against the public option—a plan backed by some centrist Democratic presidential contenders—calling it and Medicare for All "equally dangerous."

Trump praises China response to Hong Kong protests

Published

on

US President Donald Trump on Monday praised Beijing's handling of pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, a day after suspected triad gangsters attacked demonstrators in a bloody escalation.

Hong Kong has been plunged into its worst crisis in recent history by weeks of marches, which drew millions, and sporadic violent confrontations between police and pockets of hardcore protesters.

The demonstrations have evolved into a call for democratic reforms, universal suffrage and a halt to sliding freedoms which China had promised to respect in the semi-autonomous territory after its handover from Britain in 1997.
