President Donald Trump’s understanding of America is so shallow that a CNN analyst offered an on-air “bet” that we would fail the written test given that is required for immigrants to gain citizenship.
CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield interviewed Democratic strategist Maria Cardona, who moved to American from Colombia when she was a two-year-old child and subsequently gained citizenship
“The blame is at the feet of this president, who has allowed this kind of talk because now he is using it himself, and he is allowing each and every racist and white supremacist in this country — and people who feel misogynistic against women who can’t understand why women have these powers now and don’t think that they should — he is giving them permission to come out of the woodwork and behave the way that we all learned we should not behave,” Cardona explained.
“You know what else is interesting? As an immigrant myself, and as an American citizen, I would challenge this president, and I bet you, if he took the citizenship test that we all had to take to become citizens of this great country, he would fail,” she predicted.
‘I haven’t had a personal cell phone for years’: Trump demands retraction from CNN — in tweet sent from his iPhone
On Thursday, The Washington Post reported that President Donald Trump had spoken to Rudy Giuliani over unsecured phone lines.
If he was using an unsecured phone to talk to Giuliani about Ukraine, Trump would effectively be allowing the Russians to listen in.
CNN confirmed the unsecured phone use, reporting "President Donald Trump has continued to use his personal cell phone to make calls, despite repeated warnings from his staff that the practice could leave him vulnerable to foreign surveillance, multiple officials told CNN."
Rudy Giuliani is desperately trying to save Trump using ‘the word of a KGB agent’: CNN’s David Gergen

Among other people, Giuliani has been talking to are Andrii Telizhenko, a former Ukrainian diplomat who is also suspected of working for Russian intelligence operations, and Andriy Derkach, who attended the Dzerzhinsky Higher School of the KGB in Moscow and whose father was a former KGB officer.
Rick Santorum falls apart during CNN defense of Trump as fellow Republican Charlie Dent smirks
As CNN contributor Rick Santorum struggled to defend Donald Trump's quid pro quo proposal to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky on Friday morning, his fellow Pennsylvania Republican, former Rep. Charlie Dent, laughed at his fumbling for answers.
Sitting down with "New Day" host John Berman, Santorum once again attempted to make the case that the president was withholding aid over Ukraine corruption and not because he was seeking dirt on political opponents -- and didn't fare well as Berman kept fact-checking him.
With the two former GOP lawmakers on split-screen, Santorum refused to concede that the president was asking for a personal favor during the phone-call that eventually led to a House impeachment inquiry into the president's actions.
