It Doesn't Make Sense To Have A Poor Person In Some Positions

Trump touched down Wednesday evening in rainy Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and headed to an area community college, where he toured agricultural technology innovations, and then to a campaign rally where he reveled in Karen Handel's special election victory in a House district in suburban Atlanta.

On the border wall, the president reassured his base: "And yes, we will build the wall".

"I know Wall Street", Trump said, according to the Wall Street Journal. Their presence there tonight, Trump said, was evidence that the country was "more unified than ever before".

But the idea may be not that new.

"Drain the swamp" was one of the most memorable slogans of Donald Trump's presidential campaign.

U.S. President Donald Trump Wednesday basked in the cheers of his supporters in the rural heartland of America, far from the controversies of Washington and investigations linking his campaign to Russia's meddling in last year's election.

In a fierce and defiant display, Mr Trump attempted to quash the frequent criticism of his presidency that he had not achieved enough in office, and highlighted jobs gains and improving share markets as evidence of the efficacy of his presidency.

GOP Senate health care bill released
The House's bill had a rocky road to passage, with Speaker Paul Ryan pulling an earlier version before it could reach the floor. It would also limit, beginning in 2020, the federal funds that states get each year for Medicaid.

Colombia: Three killed, several others injured in blast at Bogota mall
The president also said that he would meet with top security advisers Sunday before heading out on a scheduled trip to Europe. An explosion at a Colombian shopping mall left one person dead and at least 11 injured on Saturday, ABC News has confirmed.

DUP Talks Not Going As Expected Sky Sources
The Queen's Speech is expected to include legislation around reducing tenancy fees and energy prices, the Times has reported. It comes the day before parliament is opened by the Queen, after the return following the election was delayed.

"History is written by the dreamers, not the doubters", he told the crowd, urging them to "set aside the cynics and the critics".

Republicans have been working on a plan to repeal and replace former President Barack Obama's signature health care law.

Trump's proposal would also prevent the admission of people who are likely to become so-called "public charges" within five years of their arrival.

Making a particular reference to Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, a billionaire former investor, Trump said:, "They don't want the money".

Undocumented immigrants and people living in the United States on non-immigrant visas, such as temporary foreign workers, are also barred from accessing most benefits. "Does that make sense?" he clarified. That margin helped Trump take the state by almost 9 points after Barack Obama won it for Democrats the previous two elections. It was the fourth straight special election that went to the Republicans.

Speaking at a rally in Iowa, the President declared: "Somebody said why did you appoint a rich person to be in charge of the economy?"

He claimed the victories were an endorsement of his record.
