    Despite What You’ve Heard, Trump Didn’t Say Immigrants Are ‘Animals’

    In a Wednesday meeting with Californians who oppose the state’s sanctuary city laws, President Trump spoke about MS-13 gang members, who have repeatedly re-entered the United States illegally and commited horrific crimes.

    Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims told Trump that she cannot report an MS-13 member to federal authorities unless he met a “certain threshold,” which she felt made her city unsafe. In response, Trump said: “You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals. And we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before.” READ MORE...

    Trump’s Rejection of Iran Deal Puts America First

    May 8, 2018, is not just the date when President Donald Trump pulled out of the Iran deal. It will ultimately go down in history as a day that the United States made the entire world safer. Though not everyone is on board yet, one day soon the world will be thanking us.

    Trump deserves credit for having the moral courage to speak the truth and act accordingly: This was a badly negotiated deal that put the world in mortal peril. During his presidential campaign, Trump promised to withdraw from the agreement known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. And this week he did the right thing by fulfilling that pledge.

  • NATO Countries Should Stop Making The U.S. Pay For Their Defense

    NATO Countries Should Stop Making The U.S. Pay For Their Defense

    Most people know about the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO’s) Article 5 pledge of collective defense: An attack on a NATO member is considered an attack on all members. Undergirding Article 5 is the promise all NATO members made to maintain defense spending at 2 percent of gross domestic product (GDP).

    The idea behind the 2 percent rule is simple: No NATO member can come anywhere near America’s $700 billion Pentagon budget, but America has a much larger economy than the other NATO members do. By requiring each NATO member to contribute according to the size of their respective economies, the alliance ensures every country contributes its “fair share.” READ MORE...

    6 Big Issues on Trump’s Plate for UN and NATO Leaders

    In a defining stretch of his presidency, Donald Trump will spend the next two days meeting with leaders of two international bodies he has criticized—the United Nations and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

    NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg will meet with Trump on Thursday and U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres will visit the White House on Friday.

    The meetings come after the Trump administration’s actions in Israel and Iran irked some European allies, and ahead of a likely meeting June 12 in Singapore between Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. READ MORE...

  • The Left’s War Against Prosperity in Seattle

    The Left’s War Against Prosperity in Seattle

    The left is sleepless in Seattle, working overtime to squander years of economic success.

    Seattle is, by many measures, one of the fastest-growing cities in America if not the fast-growing city.

    A few big tech companies, including Amazon and Microsoft, plus other large, successful businesses such as Boeing and Starbucks, have fueled this explosive rise.

    But prosperity hasn’t necessarily bred contentment, as the traditionally left-wing city turned on the elements that made it rich.

    In the latest move to soak the productive part of the city’s economy, the Seattle City Council voted 9-0 to approve a new “head tax” imposing a $250-per-worker charge on companies making over $20 million a year. READ MORE...

  • Moving Embassy to Jerusalem Shows the US Is Unique. Just Like Israel.

    Moving Embassy to Jerusalem Shows the US Is Unique. Just Like Israel.

    I was privileged to attend the dedication of the new American Embassy in Jerusalem on May 14—an event of enormous import that will remain with me forever.

    I am deeply grateful to Ambassador David Friedman and his wife, Tammy, for inviting me to this historic event. The United States recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is important not just for the United States and Israel but also for the entire world.

    We might start thinking about this by considering the unique relationship between these two countries. READ MORE...

    Trump Judge Tally Setting Records Despite Unprecedented Democrat Obstruction

    The Senate confirmations on May 15 of two more of President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees bring the total number approved so far in the 115th Congress to 39.

    Twenty-one of the 39 have been to appeals courts. The appeals court total is the highest at this point of any president in history.

    Trump has made 114 nominations to the U.S. district courts, courts of appeals, and the Supreme Court—again, more than any of his predecessors at the same point in their presidencies.

    The Senate Judiciary Committee has held hearings on 81 of those nominees, also ahead of the pace under previous presidents. READ MORE...
