At 100 days in, Trump seems both outsider and insider

And Samantha Bee's Not the White House Correspondents' Dinnerperfectly roasted the absent President. In recent decades, the event offered Washington's press corps an opportunity to wear black tie and stunning gowns while mixing with celebrity guests. It would allow states to opt out of the requirement under certain circumstances - a concession that won over conservatives while alienating some moderates. The overall legislation would cut the Medicaid program for the poor, eliminate fines for people who don't buy insurance and provide generally skimpier subsidies.

Asked if the rare Chinese naval visits were a sign that Duterte was backing away from Washington, Department of National Defense spokesman Arsenio Andolong said: "We are not veering away from the USA but rather we are expanding our relations with our fellow nations in the global community".

Asked to explain Trump's statements, spokesman Sean Spicer said Sunday that under the current version people with pre-existing conditions who maintain coverage will not be impacted. And I just watched another network than yours, and they were saying, 'Pre-existing is not covered.' Pre-existing conditions are in the bill. And I mandate it. "I've never stood in front of a crowd this big in my life", she said.

"We obviously want to encourage him to do better, but this call, the goal of the call, is all about North Korea", Priebus said.

In an hour-long speech on Saturday, Mr Trump lambasted the media and predecessor Barack Obama, boasted of his support for United States industry and the military, and vaunted his foreign policy positions including on confronting North Korea, earning cheers from the crowd in Pennsylvania. And every politician knows a good scapegoat when they see one.

In an interview with Reuters on Thursday, Trump said he prefers a diplomatic approach to settle mounting friction over North Korea's nuclear program but warned that a conflict is possible. 'He goes golfing too much.' Which raises a very important question: Why do you care?

Britain loses case to delay submission of air pollution plan
The judge said purdah was "not a trump card" to justify failing to comply with a previous court order to publish the plan. Within the report was the British government's plan to tackle the relatively high levels of air pollution in the U.K.


The Philippines president has also been accused of encouraging civilians to kill people attempting to buy or sell drugs.

At his rally, Mr Trump spoke of his plans to reform USA taxes and swore that healthcare legislation brought in by Mr Obama that gives greater medical access to Americans was "dying" and would be repealed - despite a signal failure by Republicans in Congress to do so in March.

"However, from his point of view, it seems like the president of the Philippines is doing a sensible job". But I've had a lot of tough jobs. "You know, it was reported like a failure. Perhaps eight years. Hopefully, eight years".

The analysis reviewed the content of the account's tweets, the occasions that Trump tweeted the most, the times of day messages were sent and whether they came from an iPhone or Android device. And he'll head to New York City on Thursday where he'll visit the USS Intrepid to mark the 75th anniversary of a World War II naval battle. "I will burn it down if I go to America".

Touting achievements of the Trump administration's first 100 days, Pence says he believes "we're close" to gaining enough votes in the House to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. Otherwise, "my region will suffer immensely", according to the Associated Press. The response, in a word, is heartening. We are not fake news. Some of you have even followed through with subscriptions, which is especially gratifying.

Tension between the President and news organisations has been a hallmark of his early administration. Subscriptions start as low as 25ยข per day.
