1 Trump Threatens To Impose Tariffs On Vehicles Coming Into U.S.
For those worried about avocados disappearing from stores, rest easy: President Trump is backing away from his threat to shut down the southern border. At least for another year. But he’s also making a new demand of our neighbors to the south: stem the flow of illicit drugs into the U.S. If Mexico doesn’t get a handle on illegal immigration and drugs? Trump is leaving the door open to close the border, but is also threatening to impose tariffs on new motor vehicles that are being moved across the border. Arguing that the U.S. immigration system is “the most ridiculous thing he has ever seen,” the President blamed Democrats and made another pitch for a massive border wall. Trump said the flow of illegal immigrants and drugs into the U.S. “must be stopped.” Trump plans to visit a location on the border in Southern California later today.
2 Nancy Pelosi: We’re Getting Trump’s Returns AND The Mueller Report
While President Trump is confident that his tax returns won’t be getting released, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is also confident that they will be. In her weekly briefing, Pelosi says committee requests for tax returns "have never been denied." She went on to say that Congress will get President Trump's tax returns “one way or another” adding that Democrats are "not walking away" if Republicans say no the first time around to releasing Trump's tax returns. Pelosi says they’re approaching the release of the Mueller Report in a similar fashion. “Show us the Mueller report, show us the tax returns,” Pelosi noted. “We are not walking away just because you say no the first time around.” The Ways and Means Committee has requested copies of six years of Trump's personal and business tax returns. Trump reporters in the Cabinet Room that he would not voluntarily release his tax returns, insisting that he remains under audit.
3 Mick Jagger Heart Surgery Successful
Mick Jagger was due to undergo heart surgery this week, and sources tell "Billboard" the procedure has been completed and was successful. Mick underwent a heart valve replacement, and sources say doctors are now monitoring him for any possible complications. He is expected to rest at least four of five days in order for his artery to heal without issues, but could be up and moving before then. Earlier this week, the Rolling Stones announced they were going to have to postpone dates on their North American “No Filter” tour in order for Mick to get “medical treatment.”
