Thur, Oct. 19, 2017: Trump, First Lady attend gala benefiting UN refugee agency

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania are attending a gala at the Embassy of Kuwait benefiting the U.N. refugee agency.

Melania Trump is being honored by the Kuwait-American Foundation at a dinner benefiting the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

President Trump has taken a hard line on refugees, trying to temporarily halt their entry into the United States and recently setting the lowest cap on refugees in modern history.

The first lady’s office says she is being honored “for her dedication to causes affecting women and children in the US and abroad.”

It says she “considers this as an opportunity to continue to shine a light on the fact that it is often children who bear the harshest burdens of cruelty and injustice.”

Tue, Oct 17, 2017: Trump speaks at Heritage Foundation, says he’s accomplished more in 9 months than any president in history

President Trump, pitching his tax plan and other administration efforts to the Heritage Foundation’s annual President’s Club Meeting Tuesday night, claimed his administration has accomplished more in nine months than any administration in history.

“We have taken action to repeal the EPA’s so-called clean power plan,” he told the conservative crowd. “And we have ended, finally, the war on clean, beautiful coal. People going back to work, they’re going back to work. Over the last nine months, we have removed job-killing regulations at a record pace. In fact, in nine months, we have done more, they say, than any president in history, and we’re nine months. And there’s more to come.”

The president didn’t clarify who had claimed his administration has accomplished more in that time frame than any other. Mr. Trump, there in part to pitch tax reform, made another claim Tuesday evening — that his tax plan will be the largest reduction in taxes in the country’s history. The nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Budget estimates it would likely be the fifth-largest in history, at best.

Mr. Trump is having difficulty persuading even some in his own party of the merits of his tax plan, which simplifies tax brackets and lowers taxes on businesses, but will have a debatable impact on the middle class. Mr. Trump has said his plan will save the average middle class family $4,000 through changes to the tax code, but some critics point out that is no guarantee, and some middle-class families may pay higher taxes as a result of the plan. Voters are also skeptical. A recent CBS News Nation Tracker poll found most Americans believe the plan would benefit the wealthy, even as the White House pitches the plan as a boon for the middle class.

“At the heart of our plans is a tax cut for everyday, working Americans,” Mr. Trump said Tuesday, adding his plain aims to make it so families can file taxes on a single sheet of paper.

Sat, Aug 12, 2017: Trump addresses racist violence in Charlottesville, VA

President Trump first tweeted about the violence in Charlottesville Saturday afternoon.

Later on Saturday, speaking from his golf club in New Jersey, Trump made a statement to address the violence.

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides,” Trump said. “It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama, this has been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America. What is vital now is a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives.”

Tue, June 13, 2017: Trump helps Gov. Scott Walker raise $1 million

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker raised more than $1 million Tuesday evening at a fundraiser headlined by President Donald Trump in downtown Milwaukee.

The event required contributions of at least $1,000 for admission and $20,000 for a VIP seat and a photo with Trump and Walker. Some of the biggest names in Milwaukee-area business attended, as did a gaggle of Madison lobbyists.

Trump told guests the event raised $1.5 million for Walker’s next gubernatorial campaign in 2018, according to one attendee. However, that figure was not confirmed.

“That sounded high and seemed to grow throughout the night,” the source said. “It was definitely over a million.”
