CNN’s Erin Burnett slammed Senator James Risch (R-ID) on Tuesday for asserting that the media did not give President Trump enough credit for meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
“I’m not sure what you want for this president. This guy has done something that is historical, and that’s bringing these people to the table to talk about denuclearization of the peninsula,” Risch said.
Risch said that Kim Jong-un is making progress, and that Burnett should give President Trump a little credit.
“He has done some really bad things, but he is headed down a different road than he was 120 days ago. I know this is going to be tough for you, but you have got to give him a smidget of credit,” he said.
Risch claimed that Burnett was trying to spin the story by showing alternate videos of President Trump.
“Certainly, for sure. Which one are we supposed to believe?” Burnett asked. She then said that she only stated the facts.
“I don’t think we’re putting a rough spin on this. I think we’re seeing the president of the United States came out of a meeting and he said ‘I trust that guy’ with not spin. The facts. So what I’m asking you is why are those facts the way they are? Is it okay, he did that? Do you support it? I’m just playing for you what he did,” Burnett said.
Kim Jong-un threatens to restart nuke tests as Trump’s efforts to talk to the regime fall apart again: report
On Tuesday, CNN's Brian Todd reported that the North Korean regime is on the brink of rescinding what little they promised President Donald Trump, as the future of his efforts to continue talks appear uncertain.
"Kim Jong-un's regime is once again in negotiation by intimidation," said Todd. "Just two weeks after their historic meeting at the DMZ, and President Trump's short stroll into North Korea, North Korea's dictator Kim Jong-un appears to be threatening to start testing his nuclear weapons again. In a new statement, Kim's foreign ministry calls the joint U.S./South Korean military exercises planned for next month a breach of the main spirit of what President Trump and Kim agreed to in Singapore, and says, 'We are gradually losing our justifications to follow through on the commitments we made with the U.S."
Republican freaks out after Democrat quotes Trump’s racist statement on the floor of Congress
Chaos continued on the floor of the House of Representatives during the debate on a resolution condemning President Donald Trump's racist attacks on four young women of color.
Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) rose to support the resolution, listing multiple instances of racism from the commander-in-chief.
As part of the list, Swalwell noted Trump's attacks on "sh*thole countries."
After he swore on the floor by quoting the president, Republicans freaked out.
Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) complained and got in a back-and-forth with Swalwell.
Collins sought to have Swalwell's words stricken from the Congressional Record, which would have banned him from speaking for the rest of the day.
Appeals court delivers ‘tremendous blow to federal workers’ with decision to uphold Trump’s anti-union executive orders
"There must be a check on the president's power to destroy federal employees' union rights."
Unions representing hundreds of thousands of federal employees on Tuesday vowed to fight a federal appeals court ruling in which a three-judge panel unanimously upheld President Donald Trump's executive orders attacking workers' rights.
The U.S. Court of Appeals in the D.C. Circuit said that it lacked jurisdiction to block Trump's orders, which made it easier to fire federal employees, limited the amount of time workers can spend on union business, and compelled federal agencies to devise unfavorable contracts with unions.
