White House doubles down on Trump's claim of a trade deficit with Canada

A spokesman for President Trump, seen with first lady Melania Trump leaving for Manchester New Hampshire on Monday said a report in the Washington Post is'absolutely false that the president made senior staff sign non-disclosure agreeme

Before his meeting with visiting Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud at the White House, Trump told reporters that he had a phone call with Putin earlier in the day, which had to do with a possible meeting between them.

In the wake of initial reports about the President's alleged affair with porn star Stormy Daniels, conservative evangelical leader Tony Perkins said Trump gets a "mulligan" when it comes to his personal behavior.

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida disapproved of Trump making the call, but he said he was more disappointed by leaks from the White House that revealed Trump's national security advisers urged the President not to congratulate Putin before the call. Graham argued that Trump been put in the White House by God.

White House officials also wrestled with whether or not to include information about Trump's congratulatory message for Putin in a readout of their call.

The presidents "agreed to develop further bilateral contacts, taking into account changes in the U.S. State Department", the Kremlin statement said in a reference to Trump's decision to replace Secretary of State Rex Tillerson with CIA Director Mike Pompeo.

A package bomb blew up at a FedEx Corp distribution center near San Antonio on Tuesday, officials said, and the FBI was investigating whether it was linked to a series of four homemade bombs in Austin. But since the president's goals in relations with Russia are nefarious, a breakdown of that process with regard to US-Russia relations is good.

The nondisclosure agreements, said a person who signed the document, "were meant to be very similar to the ones that some of us signed during the campaign and during the transition". "This shows that Trump continues to believe that he can make a "deal" with Putin and is unconstrained by his advisers who have been arguing for restraint and caution".

Wehner, who now serves as a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, said he draws particular unease from the staunch evangelical defense of the President.

They even found a couch for me, so thank you, Sloppy Steve!

The White House had said Monday that it was "not surprised by the outcome" of Sunday's presidential election in Russian Federation and that no congratulatory call was planned. The two presidents subsequently sat down together at last summer's G-20 meeting in Germany, and at an Asia-Pacific economic summit in November.

The row erupted as lawmakers heard that Russian Federation - slapped with U.S. sanctions over its meddling in the 2016 election - remains a menace as the country gears up for congressional polls in November.

In an interview with NBC this month, Putin aligned himself with Trump's stated belief that good relations with Russian Federation are a priority. Which raises the obvious question: Why is he so consistently frantic to ensure that no one knows what goes on behind closed doors? I don't think there was enough evidence to support that theory.
