Matt Gaetz Tried To Eject Parkland Parents From Congressional Gun Hearing

On Wednesday, during the House’s first gun violence hearing in eight years, Florida Representative Matt Gaetz tried to remove Parkland parents from the audience. The parents took issue with Gaetz’s derision of H.R. 8, an act that would require background checks for every gun purchase in America. Gaetz asserted that Donald Trump’s proposed border wall should be a primary focus in the gun violence debate instead.

Trump Admin Says It’s Too Hard To Reunite Thousands Of Separated Families: Court Filing | HuffPost

On Friday, officials from the Trump administration said it would require too much effort to reunite the thousands of families it separated before implementing its “zero-tolerance” policy in April, according to a declaration filed as part of an ongoing lawsuit between the American Civil Liberties Union and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Last month, the inspector general of the Department of Health and Human Services released a report stating that “thousands” more immigrant families had been separated than the government had previously disclosed. In the declaration submitted Friday, HHS officials said they don’t know the exact number of children who were taken from their parents before “zero tolerance” and that finding them would be too much of a “burden” since there was no formal tracking system in place.

From Fake News to Enemy of the People: An Anatomy of Trump’s Tweets | Inter Press Service

The president’s tweets can have an impact and consequences for the press both at home and abroad. His rhetoric has given cover to autocratic regimes: world leaders from Cambodia to the Philippines have echoed terms like “fake news” in the midst of crackdowns on press freedom. And the rhetoric has sometimes resulted in harassment of individual journalists in the U.S., where CPJ is aware of several journalists who say they were harassed or threatened online after being singled out on Twitter by Trump. CPJ’s database of tweets can be viewed here and our methodology can be found here.

If Trump isn’t working for them, he’s not really work for us either. By allowing Russia to gain standing on the world stage, Trump is diminishing the foreign policy work laid since the end of World War II when the U.S. saved Russia.

The Cold War was waged over Russia’s desire for an expanded political role among world superpowers through a build up of nuclear weapons and the coercion of witting partners. After three decades of decline, Putin has put them back at the main table with Trump as his wing man.
