This is a lie. USSS advises on security but the President makes the final call.
He chose to skip the memorial.
The French government showed up at Arlington National Cemetery yesterday to honor our fallen heroes when Trump refused to go.
France has wine. America has whine.
The irony here is that France isn’t supposed to “pay for NATO” (that’s not how NATO works)—it’s supposed to spend more of its own $$ on defense.
That's what Macron is saying Europe should do. And that’s making Trump mad.

While in private business, Matthew Whitaker walked away from a taxpayer-subsidized apartment-rehabilitation project in Iowa after years of cost overruns, delays and other problems, public records show.
"The city of Des Moines ultimately yanked an affordable housing loan that Whitaker’s company had been awarded, and another lender began foreclosure proceedings after Whitaker defaulted on a separate loan for nearly $700,000."
The State of Maryland is expected to ask a fed judge for an injunction declaring that Matthew Whitaker is not the legitimate acting AG as a matter of law, and that the position — and all its powers — instead rightfully belongs to Rod Rosenstein.
San Francisco city attorney Dennis Herrera says his office may be forced to take court action over Trump's appointment of Matthew Whitaker.

Schiff: "Should Whitaker fail to recuse himself ... and seek to obstruct the investigation, serve as a back channel to [Trump] or legal team or interfere in the investigations in any way, he will be called to answer. His actions will be exposed."
@JimCarrey: Matt Whitaker. Unconfirmed. Unconstitutional. A Kangaroo Attorney General, happy to hop for our Baby-in-Chief.
Joseph Misfud, the professor at the heart of the Trump-Russia probe, wants to testify before the Senate, a lawyer claims.

Trump is, again, trying to make the actual counting of ballots in Florida seem suspicious and fraudulent. There is nothing suspicious or fraudulent about counting votes.

Remember the caravan?
After the midterms, Trump and the conservative media have dramatically reduced the frequency and intensity of their dire warnings about the migrants' march
Less than 1 percent of migrant caravan may reach border near San Diego in five days.
Think of it this way: There's not a single demographic trend in America that benefits Republicans.
