President Donald Trump made lots of promises at a Friday evening press conference, but did not take any action.

The president made the comments from Trump National Golf Club Bedminster, where he arrived on Thursday for an extended weekend.

He held the press conference while allowing members of his private club to serve as an audience for his speech, which was announced by the White House but frequently veered into partisan electoral politics. Members were seen without masks and not social distancing, potentially in violation of New Jersey regulations.

Trump’s comments came after White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin “did not make any progress” in negotiations with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

Here’s some of what people were saying about his press conference:

One of the mysteries left in the wake of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation was why Donald Trump Jr., who infamously met with Russian agents to discuss the hacking of Hillary Clinton's stolen emails, was never forced to testify.

"In the spirit of RBG, we will not allow a double standard in how our Congress deals with late-term Supreme Court appointments."

Taking Sen. Lindsey Graham up on his 2016 advice to use his words opposing the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland against him should a Supreme Court seat open in the final year of a Republican president's first term, a group of demonstrators gathered outside of the South Carolina Republican's Washington, D.C. residence early Monday morning demanding that he oppose the filling of late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat until after the November election.

Trump makes fun of Kamala Harris’ name during extended Fox & Friends rant

President Donald Trump made fun of Sen. Kamala Harris' name during an appearance on "Fox & Friends."

"Well, look, I think he's a professional," Trump said. "I don't know if he's all there, but I think he's a professional. I have to assume that he's a professional and that he can debate. I don't understand what's going on, he doesn't seem to be answering questions, and he can't answer questions, and much worse a little while ago when he was on the stage with the Democrats, he couldn't do well. He did okay with Bernie [Sanders], it was sort of a tie. It was nothing great. I always say it wasn't Winston Churchill, but it was okay. He was horrible when he was debating the Democrats."
