On Tuesday, President Donald Trump spoke in front of the United Nation in New York, earning him outright laughter from foreign leaders.
Trump opened up his speech boasting about his administration perceived accomplishments. Trump repeated his “America first” mantra. He also attacked to the Iran Nuclear deal and bragged about his relationship with North Korea president Kim Jong-un.
However, there was one thing “absent” from his speech, CNN’s Jeff Zeleny noted out during an interview with Jake Tapper.
“Noticeably absent from any mention in this speech was Russia or Vladimir Putin,” he said. “Clearly, no message about Russian election meddling from the 2016 campaign, and no warning about the midterm elections to come in November.”

Fox News lying to defend Trump makes it a threat to US national security: CNN contributor
Fox News a threat to American democracy and national security, a CNN contributor explained on Saturday.
Garrett Graff was interviewed by CNN's Ana Cabrera about a new piece he wrote for Wired titled, "Fox News Is Now a Threat to National Security."
"Monday’s split-screen drama, as the House Judiciary Committee weighed impeachment charges against President Trump and as the Justice Department’s inspector general released a 476-page report on the FBI’s handling of its 2016 investigation into Trump’s campaign, made one truth of the modern world inescapable: The lies and obfuscations forwarded ad infinitum on Fox News pose a dangerous threat to the national security of the United States," he wrote.
Lindsey Graham admits nothing will change his mind on Trump impeachment: ‘I’m not trying to pretend to be a fair juror’
In an interview with CNN International's Becky Anderson at the Doha Forum in Qatar, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) admitted he has no plans to look at the evidence compiled against Donald Trump from the House impeachment inquiry when it is referred to the Senate.
The chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee explained that he wants the trial to be quick and that expects nothing to come of it, with the GOP solidly behind fighting impeachment of the president.
During the interview Graham stated, "This thing will come to the Senate, and it will die quickly, and I will do everything I can to make it die quickly."
GOP strategist walloped for urging Dem lawmakers to leave Trump alone and worry about being re-elected instead
On CNN Saturday, Democratic strategist Maria Cardona and Republican strategist Doug Heye clashed after the latter suggested Democrats should value their re-election over holding President Donald Trump accountable for wrongdoing.
"We have to remember, this is not a trial as we think of trials in courtroom," said Heye. "This is a political process. It is designed to be a political process, and that's why this whole process is played out the way that it has so far. I would say to Maria, the Republicans aren't spending money to shore up Republicans per se. They're spending money to go after vulnerable Democrats who are going home and then coming back and telling Nancy Pelosi and Democratic leadership, I'm getting killed back home."
