2…………> The Border Wall Battle: Trump’s Message
Trump Was Right: Transparency a Good Thing in Border Wall Debate with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer:
“When House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York tried to move their Oval Office debate with President Trump over border wall funding behind closed doors, Trump had the right response,” Philip Klein writes. “It’s not bad, Nancy,” the President said. “It’s called transparency.”
3…………> Melania Message: Stop Bullying
First Lady Spreads Anti-Bullying Message at Kids’ Hospital
“Melania Trump spread her anti-bullying message on an annual Christmas season visit to a Washington children’s hospital on Thursday, reading a story about a Christmas ornament named Oliver who is bullied by other ornaments in a family’s collection,” Darlene Superville writes for The Associated Press.
The author of the children’s book sat a few feet away, thanking the First Lady “from the bottom of my heart” for inviting him to join her. “Mrs. Trump launched an initiative earlier this year to teach kindness to children, naming it Be Best,” Superville adds.
4…………> A Busy Holiday Season: White House
As Christmas approaches, President Donald J. Trump and the First Family have been hard at work to ensure every American has a fantastic holiday season.
On the policy side, the President has focused on delivering several crucial wins before the calendar turns to 2019:
On Tuesday, he met with Democratic leaders in the Oval Office to make clear border security is non-negotiable when it comes to funding our Government.
Yesterday, he signed an “Opportunity Zones” executive order that will help drive investment into the most underserved communities in America.
This week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) vowed to bring the First Step Act— crucial criminal justice reform that President Trump is backing strongly—to the Senate floor.
The Christmas season is also about supporting our fellow Americans.
The First Lady kicked off the week by joining the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve for its annual Toys for Tots drive in Washington. “As a mother, I believe children are the most precious gift,” she said, donating 100 books for the Toys for Tots Literacy Program—a project that dovetails with the First Lady’s own “Be Best” initiative for children. (See photos from the event.)
Yesterday, the First Lady honored our heroes in uniform—many of whom will be serving our country over the Christmas season. She made stops at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, Joint Base Langley-Eustis, and the USS George H.W. Bush aircraft carrier. She also flew in a V-22 Osprey military plane, becoming the first First Lady ever to do so.
And today, the First Lady traveled to Children’s National Hospital in Washington. The visit is a unique tradition that’s been followed by every First Lady since Bess Truman more than 60 years ago.
5…………> Lifting The Forgotten Americans: President Trump
Opportunity Zones are a vital part of the tax cuts signed into law by President Donald J. Trump last December. Today, they got another huge boost.
“For decades, job growth and investment have been concentrated in a few major metropolitan areas,” the President said after signing an executive order to create the White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council. “Some cities have thrived, while others have suffered chronic economic and social hardship. With Opportunity Zones, we are drawing investment into neglected and underserved communities of America.”
The purpose of Opportunity Zones is to lift up communities that have been neglected by Washington and left behind for far too long. The typical family income in these areas is 37 percent below their state’s median level. The average poverty rate is 32 percent—almost double the national average. Nearly 35 million Americans live in these communities. Now, help is on the way.
Here’s how it works: Tax relief is offered in exchange for long-term investments in the low-income communities that need it most. These more impoverished areas begin to see more job creation and lasting growth. This private investment fuels human potential in these communities, whereas government spending programs too often extinguish it.
The upshot: All Americans, regardless of zip code, should have access to the American Dream. With Opportunity Zones, we get closer to that reality.
