Ryan Insists Trump Is Familiar With FISA, Despite Contradictory Tweets

On Friday, Mr Trump also tweeted: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country", and claimed: "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

Price doesn't touch the president or other Trump family members.

"House votes on controversial FISA ACT today".

Hours later, Trump responded with a new tweet that appeared to clarify his support for the bill, saying that it is about "foreign surveillance of foreign bad guys on foreign land" and that "we need it!" And we can tiptoe around it, we can dance around it, and not really put our finger on it, but the president seems to harbor racist feelings about people of color, from other parts of the world.

Though Kelly has sought to institute discipline in an often-chaotic White House, the retired general has realized during his time in the administration that among the things he can not control is Trump's off-the-cuff Twitter account.

Five-and-a-half years after Edward Snowden leaked details of the government's secret spying programs, the dust-up over Trump's tweet underscored the still-roiling debate over domestic surveillance, technology and Americans' views of their own privacy. Still, the episode served as a chilling reminder that the commander-in-chief is distressingly ignorant when it comes to matters of US national security.

Early on Thursday, Sanders released a statement opposing an amendment that would've increased limits on surveillance allowed under the law.

NEVER throughout the USA presidential history a man has ever faced so much embarrassment and questionability regarding his suitability as the head of state as Donald Trump (albeit a self-acclaimed genius) faces today. Sanders used this opening to roast CNN. "I don't get that", said No. 2 Senate Republican John Cornyn of Texas.

Because when Sanders took the podium at her daily White House briefing on Thursday, she insisted that the sky was not, in fact, blue at all.

A senator present at a White House immigration meeting says President Donald Trump used vulgar language to describe African countries, saying he "said these hate filled things and he said them repeatedly". When the speaker called Trump back, the two men spoke at length about the program, with Ryan helping to articulate the nuances of the program being voted on Thursday, a person familiar with the conversation said. He has nearly as little control over his own White House. They had been on Capitol Hill for pre-scheduled meetings about immigration policy, but found themselves fielding questions about the FISA bill.

Nonetheless Trump's ascent to the White House adds to the evidence, representing the biggest shift in the US' orientation vis-à-vis the global balance of power/global economy system/human rights regime in the post-Cold war era.
