On Thursday, President Donald Trump travelled to the Southwest border to make the case for a border wall.
Flanked by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and border patrol agents, Trump seem to renege on his most emphatic promise: the idea that Mexico would pay for the wall.
Even Fox News host Neil Cavuto was perplexed by the president’s reversal of his campaign promise.
The host then played all of the times candidate and president Trump riled up his supporters by talking about Mexico paying for the well.
“We have digital footage,” Cavuto joked, pointing out that in an era where every statement made by a public official lives forever, it’s harder to lie.
Orange County Republican under fire after 3 women come forward with #MeToo allegations of sexual misconduct

US foes are goading Trump because they know he’s a ‘blow-hard and full of bluster’: CNN analyst
President Donald Trump walked back from the brink of atrocities last week, from calling off a military strike against Iran to pushing back planned Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids in major American cities.
On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin told anchor Wolf Blitzer how foreign adversaries have been emboldened to challenge Trump — because for all his bombast, they know they are calling a bluff.
"I think Donald Trump is pretty well a known quantity at this point," said Toobin. "I mean, I think people around the world know he's a blowhard, knows he's full of bluster. But that's no reason to get into a war."
New York Times admits they ‘downplayed’ the rape allegation against Trump
On Monday, The New York Times issued a mea culpa for the nature of their coverage of the allegation by advice columnist E. Jean Carroll that President Donald Trump raped her in a department store in the 1990s.
"After an article last week reported the advice columnist E. Jean Carroll's rape allegations against President Trump, some readers accused The Times of downplaying the story," wrote staff editor Laura Takenaga. "Many have written to ask us why we didn't give the allegations more attention on our website and in print ... Some questioned whether the lack of prominence showed too much deference to the president's denials, or whether it even suggested misogyny or an unwillingness to believe a victim's account."
