PHILADELPHIA — A 4-year-old girl in a Pennsylvania Head Start program told her teacher that President Trump wanted to send her mother back to Mexico. Her mother was born in the United States.

‘Blasphemous and sacrilegious’: Texas pastor blasts Trump’s ‘second coming of God’ claim — and ‘silent’ evangelicals
Much of the strong criticism that President Donald Trump receives from Christians typically comes from Mainline Protestants (especially non-fundamentalist African-American churches) or Catholic Democrats; Trump is still quite popular among far-right fundamentalist white evangelical groups like Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council.

Trump’s old NBC boss pitches $60 million plan to use mass surveillance to predict potential mass shooters
President Donald Trump's old boss at NBC has briefed him on a surveillance program intended to identify potential mass shooters.
The proposal is part of a larger effort to establish a new agency called the Health Advanced Research Projects Agency, or HARPA, modeled after the Pentagon's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, reported the Washington Post.
The proposed agency would be part of the Health and Human Services Department, and its director would be appointed by the president and have a separate budget, according to three sources with knowledge of discussions around the plan.

President Donald Trump's doctrine of global policy is ambiguous at best and erratic at worst, a Daily Beast reporter pointed out in a Thursday morning piece.
Thus far, the president's dogma has been a hodge-podge of assumptions and ambiguity that changes depending on the feud of choice he has waged on any given day. The only consistency is Trump's unfaltering support for Russian President Vladimir Putin and his loyalty to Benjamin Netanyahu. Outside of that, the Trump doctrine seems to be based on the ill-informed whims of a president who conducts foreign policy based on near-daily squabbles.
