President Donald Trump’s remarks during Operation Warp Speed Update

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – President Donald J. Trump: Thank you very much. Thank you. It’s beautiful out here this time of year. In the past nine months, my administration has initiated the single greatest mobilization in U.S. history — pioneering, developing, and manufacturing therapies and vaccines in record time. Numbers like nobody has seen before.

No medical breakthrough of this scope and magnitude has ever been achieved this rapidly, this quickly. And we’re very proud of it, and I had tremendous help from the military — generals, admirals — and many of the great people at the White House.

How Labor Day Started

 

Labor DayWashington, D.C. – On the first Monday in September, Labor Day is observed. It is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers.

President Donald Trump remarks during Press Briefing, August 14th

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Okay. Thank you very much, everybody. So we have some very interesting news. Kevin Clinesmith, a corrupt FBI attorney who falsified FISA warrants in James Comey’s very corrupt FBI, is expected to plead guilty.

You probably heard that. It just came out. So that’s just the beginning, I would imagine, because what happened should never happen again. So, he is pleading guilty. Terrible thing. Terrible thing. The fact is they spied on my campaign and they got caught. And you’ll be hearing more.

U.S. Representative Mark Green Calls Out James Clyburn for Selective Harassment of Republican Governors

 

U.S. House of RepresentativesWashington, D.C. – Moments ago, U.S. Representative Mark Green sent a letter to Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis Chairman James Clyburn (D-SC) calling on him to rescind his partisan attacks on coronavirus response efforts in Tennessee and in three other states led by Republican governors.

Representative Green said, “I am writing to you expressing my severe concern over your letters to four states led by Republican governors, including my home state Governor Bill Lee of Tennessee. The White House Coronavirus Task Force report has 21 states listed as being ‘in the red zone.’ Yet, for some reason, only four of these states, all with Republican governors, were on the receiving end of your letter.”

Defund Police, Watch Crime Return

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “One feature of our current politics is how quickly bad events trigger a rush to bad policies. So it is that the response to the killing of George Floyd has sprinted past police reform to ‘defund the police,’” The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes. 

“By all means let’s debate other policies and accountability in using force. But a political drive to defund police risks a return to the high-crime era of the 1960s and 1970s that damaged so many American cities.”
