Getting tough on MS-13
It‚Äôs estimated that MS-13 has as many as 10,000 members in at least 40 states. In the immigration framework President Trump sent to Congress last month, the White House calls for a bill that will give law enforcement the tools it needs to combat this brutal gang and stop its proliferation into American communities.
Today, the President is hosting a roundtable with law enforcement professionals and community leaders to discuss what immigration reforms are needed to dismantle this transnational gang once and for all.
Vice President Pence‚Äôs message in South Korea
This year‚Äôs Games hold particular importance given the recent actions of North Korea related to its nuclear weapons program. President Trump held a call Friday with South Korean President Moon Jae-in before meeting with defectors from North Korea in the Oval Office.
It was announced over the weekend that a special guest will accompany Vice President Pence. ‚ÄúHonored that Fred Warmbier, father of Otto Warmbier, will join us‚ÄĚ in South Korea, the Vice President tweeted. Otto Warmbier was an American student detained in North Korea for 17 months before being released in severe condition and passing away four days later.
‚ÄėFour magnificent words‚Äô
"Right here in Cincinnati, the Sheffer Corporation announced every single worker was getting a $1,000 tax cut bonus,‚ÄĚ the President said. ‚ÄúThat‚Äôs good. Hard working patriotic Americans like you are what makes this country run.‚ÄĚ
At heart, tax relief is about reinvigorating the great middle class that built America. ‚ÄúWe‚Äôre bringing back those four magnificent words: ‚ÄėMade in the USA,‚Äô‚ÄĚ the President said.
