Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-NY) on Monday reacted to President Donald Trump’s remarks in Japan that he is not “personally bothered” by North Korean missile tests.
Meeks told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin that there was likely nothing Kim Jong-un could do that would make Trump disavow the two leaders’ relationship.
“I think Kim is playing the president,” Meeks said. “He played him in the first summit. He played him at the second summit. So Kim realizes that the real low IQ person is the president and he can continue to play games with him all along until Kim gets what he wants. In fact, Kim has already gotten what he wants. The world stage.”
Over the weekend, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said that Trump was in “agreement” with Kim about former Vice President Joe Biden’s “low IQ.”

‘Serious harm and suffering’: Jared Kushner’s apartment management company sued for ‘hundreds of thousands of violations’
An apartment management company owned by Jared Kushner is being sued by Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh, who says the company “victimized consumers, many of whom are financially vulnerable” and committed “hundreds of thousands of violations” of consumer protection laws, the Baltimore Sun reports.
The lawsuit was filed this Monday against Westminster Management and alleges that the company utilizes "unfair and deceptive" rental practices in its Baltimore apartment complexes, which were reportedly infested with rats. In a statement, Kushner Cos. CEO Laurent Morali said that the company refuses to be "extorted by an ambitious attorney general who clearly cares more about scoring political points than fighting real crime and improving the lives of the people of Maryland."
Rudy Giuliani’s henchmen claim executive privilege concerns in first court appearance
Rudy Giuliani's henchmen appeared in court on campaign finance violations, and they may attempt to claim evidence in the case is protected by executive privilege.
Ukrainian-American businessmen Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, who were arrested earlier this month on their way out of the country on one-way tickets, pleaded not guilty Wednesday in their first court appearance, according to Courthouse News.
Prosecutors told the court they had issued subpoenas for 50 bank accounts related to the pair.
But an attorney for Parnas told the judge there may be concerns to sort out related to executive privilege due to their relationship with Giuliani, who serves as President Donald Trump's personal attorney.
‘Looks like the smoking gun’: Meghan McCain less skeptical of impeachment after Bill Taylor testimony
Meghan McCain gave her strongest indication yet that President Donald Trump was doomed to impeachment, but she was in no mood to talk about it on her birthday.
The conservative host of "The View" turned 35 on Wednesday, a day after former Ukraine ambassador told lawmakers that President Donald Trump had directed efforts to freeze military aid to pressure the foreign ally to investigate political rival Joe Biden.
"This is just killing my vibe," McCain said. "I'm sorry, it's very bad."
"Look, I can't -- I just can't today," McCain said. "I'm so sorry. I would love to stay on this, but it's really bad. It looks like it's highly unethical, and it looks like the smoking gun. That's my political analysis for today. It's my 35th birthday, and I want to move on."
