Fox News reporter busts Trump for lying about UK’s health system

Published

The fate of the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS) has emerged as a top campaign issue in upcoming U.K. elections, as Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has accused Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson of plotting to sell off parts of the NHS to American health care firms.

During a press conference on Tuesday, Trump denied that he wanted anything to do with the NHS, and said he didn’t know how rumors started that he wanted to put the NHS up for sale as part of a trade deal between the United States and the U.K.

However, as Mediaite points out, Fox News White House corespondent John Roberts busted the president for shamelessly rewriting history.

“Trump said today he doesn’t know where the rumor came from that Britain’s National Health Service would be on the table in a new trade deal with the U.K.,” Roberts wrote on Twitter after the president’s London press conference. “It came from his press conference with Theresa May on June 4, 2019.”

Roberts then directly quoted the president, who during the press conference said, “When you’re dealing in trade everything is on the table. So NHS or anything else, a lot more than that, but everything will be on the table, absolutely.”

"And, he did get back from Europe just recently and I know -- he has not told me what he found, but I think he wants to go before Congress and say, and also to the attorney general and the Department of Justice," Trump said.

GOP governors are refusing to do Trump’s bidding and ducking him on the campaign trail: report

Published

On Saturday, Maggie Haberman of The New York Times profiled how President Donald Trump is having less luck whipping Republican governors into line than Republican senators, including governors who arguably owe their election to his support.

"In Florida, Mr. Trump’s aides helped save the flailing candidacy of Ron DeSantis in the 2018 Republican primary, and then the general election," wrote Haberman. "Also last year, in Georgia, Mr. Trump helped pull Brian Kemp over the finish line in both the primary and the general election. In both cases, Mr. Trump’s advisers implored him to stay out of the primaries, and he agreed to — only to surprise his aides by jumping in to support Mr. DeSantis and Mr. Kemp."

Courts have avoided refereeing between Congress and the president — Trump may change all that

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s refusal to hand over records to Congress and allow executive branch employees to provide information and testimony to Congress during the impeachment battle is the strongest test yet of legal principles that over the past 200 years have not yet been fully defined by U.S. courts.

It’s not the first test: Struggles over power among the political branches predate our Constitution. The framers chose not to, and probably could not, fully resolve them.
