Donald Trump Jr. has finally reached an agreement with the Senate Intelligence Committee to testify about the veracity of the answers he previously gave lawmakers under oath. He has faced scrutiny after evidence provided by President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, contradicted his sworn testimony that he had only minimal involvement in the canceled plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.
But as far as his sister-in-law Lara Trump is concerned, none of this is fair for Congress to be investigating.
“Unfortunately, no matter what we do as a family — our family, the administration, the campaign has complied with everything up to this point,” said Lara, who is also a senior adviser to the Trump campaign. “Don, I think, has testified over 30 hours now. He’s going back because he wants to do the right thing and he wants to make sure everyone knows he’s doing the right thing. And it’s sad, because no matter what any of us do, they will never leave any of us alone and there will never be any off limits, like in the past, or going over the line when it comes to our family.”
“Listen, he has always told the truth,” said Lara. “He’ll go back in, he’ll tell the truth again. I’m sure we will hear from him and it’ll be no big news because we have all heard we didn’t include with Russia, the president didn’t include collude with Russia.”
Trump is ‘devoted to racial arson’ — and that’s why he took ‘a massive dump on the American dream’: Rick Wilson
Republican strategist Rick Wilson has penned a scathing column for the Daily Beast in which he dismantles President Donald Trump for telling four Democratic women of color to "go back" to their countries of origin, even though three of them were born in the United States.
Wilson begins his column by arguing that Trump has shown what happens when someone who is "devoted to political and racial arson" and is "beyond shame, reason, and dignity" gets elected to the most powerful office in the United States.
Beijing rebuffs Trump claims over economic slowdown
China on Tuesday rejected claims from US President Donald Trump that it is being forced to make a trade deal because of its slowing economy, as the two sides prepare for more talks.
Beijing and Washington have been locked in a stormy trade war that has seen them hit each other with tariffs covering more than $360 billion in two-way trade.
On Monday, China published data showing its quarterly growth had slipped to 6.2 percent -- the slowest in nearly 30 years.
After the publication of the trade figures, Trump tweeted: "This is why China wants to make a deal... with the U.S., and wishes it had not broken the original deal in the first place."
