I was NOT going to fire Bob Mueller, and did not fire Bob Mueller. In fact, he was allowed to finish his Report with unprecedented help from the Trump Administration. Actually, lawyer Don McGahn had a much better chance of being fired than Mueller. Never a big fan!

….The only problem is that they know I am going to win (best economy & employment numbers in U.S. history, & much more), and the deal will become far worse for them if it has to be negotiated in my second term. Would be wise for them to act now, but love collecting BIG TARIFFS!
2…………> China Shells A Threat: A Counter Attack Coming?
President Trump’s latest tariff hike on Chinese goods took effect on Friday and Beijing said it would retaliate, escalating a battle over China’s technology ambitions and other trade strains, after American and Chinese negotiators began more talks in Washington aimed at ending a dispute that has disrupted billions of dollars in trade and shaken global financial markets, with US officials accusing Beijing of backtracking on commitments made in earlier rounds of negotiations.
After President Trump increased tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods, China said it will retaliate without giving details while the two countries are holding last-ditch trade talks in Washington, after the administration raised duties on $200 billion of Chinese imports from 10 per cent to 25 per cent.
3…………> Big Pharma Conspiracy & Money vs US States: A Massive Lawsuit
More than 40 US states have filed a lawsuit accusing pharmaceutical firms of conspiring to artificially inflate the cost of common medicinal drugs, alleging that as many as 20 companies have been involved in fixing prices for over 100 drugs, including treatments for diabetes and cancer, with Teva Pharmaceuticals, the world’s largest producer of generic medicine, on the top of the defenders list.
The legal action, which follows a five-year investigation, accuses drugs companies of involvement in a scheme to boost prices – in some cases by more than 1,000% – and was filed on Friday by Connecticut Attorney General William Tong.
“We have hard evidence that shows the generic drug industry perpetrated a multi-billion dollar fraud on the American people,” Mr Tong said.
“We have emails, text messages, telephone records and former company insiders that we believe will prove a multi-year conspiracy to fix prices and divide market share for huge numbers of generic drugs.”
4…………> Border Wall Will Be Build: US DOD Chief
“We’re not going to leave until the border is secure,” said acting DOD Secretary Mr.Patrick Shanahan.
“This isn’t about identifying a problem. It’s about fixing a problem more quickly,” as the Pentagon transferred $1.5 billion from other programs including an Afghanistan-program to fund the construction of a US-Mexico border wall, in a bid to stop the deluge of migrants arriving at the US border that President Trump has called a crisis and declared a national emergency over.
Secretary Shanahan told Congress that as for now there are 4,364 US service members at the border, including both active-duty and National Guard troops, according to The Hill report, with 1,167 service members performing the primary role of monitoring and detection, a broader set of missions ranging from logistical support to aviation support and food service.
