In an interview with Gidley, MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson played a clip of former Trump campaign adviser Michael Caputo calling on Trump to pardon Roger Stone, against whom a grand jury handed down a seven-count indictment as part of Mueller’s probe; and G...

WH On Emergency Declaration: ‘Congress Is Still Unhappy For Some Reason’

White House spokesperson Hogan Gidley said Thursday that senators who vote to block President Donald Trump’s declaration of emergency on Thursday — as a majority of the body is expected to do — “stand in opposition to the American people.” In an interview on Fox News, Gidley asserted that, in declaring an emergency in order to obtain more funds than Congress had appropriated for a border wall, “ the President is literally using powers granted by Congress to enforce laws  passed by Congress.”...

Trump says he’s not thrilled with GOP-backed border deal

By ANDREW TAYLOR and ALAN FRAM WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump said Tuesday he’s “unhappy” with a hard-won agreement to prevent a new government shutdown and finance construction of more barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border, but he didn’t say he wouldn’t sign the measure. GOP congressional leaders swung behind the proposed deal, selling it as a necessary compromise. Trump said he doesn’t believe there will be a shutdown, which could have hit hundreds of thousands of federal workers again th...

WH: We Haven’t Seen Congressional Committee’s Compromise Funding Bill

White House spokesperson Hogan Gidley said Tuesday morning that the White House hadn’t yet seen a compromise deal to keep the government funded and avoid another shutdown over President Donald Trump’s border wall demands. “We’re not sure yet,” if Trump can sign the compromise funding bill, Gidley told Fox News Tuesday morning. He continued: “And I’m not really ready to focus on what could be in there. I would like to focus on what is actually in there, and we haven’t seen that yet.” Memb...

WH On No Briefings: We’re ‘Not Making Stars’ Out Of Journos Who Want To Be On CNN

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was unapologetic on the scant number of daily briefings she’s held during her tenure, saying that she was “in the business of getting information to the American people, not making stars out of people that want to become contributors on CNN.” She added that she takes “thousands” of questions from reporters in alternate venues, but that the President feels there is a lack of “decorum” in the briefing room. The newfound questions about the offi...

Hogan … Tidley?: Trump’s A Big Fan Of Spokesman, Didn’t Know His Last Name

President Donald Trump has claimed in the past to have “one of the great memories of all time.” Well … decide for yourself. The New York Times reported earlier this month that “sometimes, with aides,” President Donald Trump refers to National Security Adviser John Bolton as “Mike Bolton.” And on Tuesday, CNN reported yet another instance of the President’s less-than-total recall. In a report on the White House press shop, the network said Trump had once referred to White House deputy press se...

White House Trashes BuzzFeed And Cohen But Doesn’t Deny Report

White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley made his disdain for BuzzFeed and Michael Cohen clear on Friday, criticizing the news outlet’s bombshell report that President Trump directed Cohen to lie to Congress about the Trump Tower Moscow project. “This is absolutely ludicrous  that we are giving any type of  credence or credibility to a ‘ news outlet’ like BuzzFeed,” Gidley told Fox News. “ They are  responsible completely and totally  for the release of a discredited, proven fal...

Trump has no deadline for deciding on a replacement for John Kelly, whose departure as chief of staff was announced last week, and, as always, he could change his mind, the source said.

As Shutdown Looms, Trump Meets With GOP Leaders Over Border Wall

WASHINGTON (AP) — With a partial government shutdown possible in just 10 days, President Donald Trump met with Republican leaders to hash out a spending plan that includes funding for Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico. Trump is seeking $5 billion for the wall, a centerpiece of his 2016 campaign, and is ratcheting up pressure on Congress to provide it.

The deal was seen as a way to dissuade thousands of Central American migrants from seeking asylum in the U.S., a process that can take years.
