David Jackson USA TODAY Published 9:33 AM EDT Apr 29, 2019 WASHINGTON – Three days after addressing the National Rifle Association convention, President Donald Trump told the NRA on Monday to straighten out in the wake of a leadership crisis and a high-profile investigation into its finances. "It must get its act together quickly, stop the internal fighting, & get back to GREATNESS - FAST!" Trump said in a morning tweet. Turmoil marked the NRA convention in Indianapolis, as president Oliver North announced he would not seek a second term and expressed concern about how the organization spends its money. Long-time NRA chief executive Wayne LaPierre accused North of trying to force him out of the organization. In addition, the New York Attorney General's Office announced Friday that it would be opening an investigation into the group's tax-exempt status. More: What's next for the NRA?

A man has been arrested after allegedly throwing a cell phone at President Donald Trump as he spoke at a convention on Friday (local time). Trump was approaching a lectern to speak to the National Rifle Association (NRA) in Indiana when a cell phone came hurtling through the air at him. While it missed, the incident was taken seriously and the suspected offender, William Rose, who is believed to have been intoxicated, was arrested. "An individual was removed from the event and the investigation is continuing," a statement from the Secret Service to Fox News said. It's not the first time a US President has had a close call with a flying object. In 2008, President George W. Bush ducked twice when an Iraqi journalist threw two shoes at him.

Maureen Groppe USA TODAY Published 7:51 AM EDT Apr 26, 2019 WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump’s trip to Indiana Friday to attend a National Rifle Association convention will be his first visit to the state since South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg formally entered the Democratic race to take on Trump. The president made his first public reference to Buttigieg in a SiriusXM interview last week, referring to him as “the mayor of Indiana.” “It could be the mayor of Indiana,” Trump said of Buttigieg, who has been rising in the polls in the crowded field of Democratic 2020 contenders. “I think I’d like running against him, too.” Since Buttigieg is now on Trump’s radar, will he go after him the way he’s riffed on Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren?

Maureen Groppe USA TODAY Published 4:21 PM EDT Apr 15, 2019 WASHINGTON – “We are all Americans,” Rep. Ilhan Omar said Sunday after the president tweeted an inflammatory video about her last week. “This is endangering lives. It has to stop.” But it hasn’t. Monday morning, President Donald Trump was complaining about Omar’s “anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and ungrateful U.S. HATE statements.” “She is out of control,” he tweeted. Since becoming one of the highest-profile, and most controversial, members of the House freshman class, Omar has sent a message that she will not be cowed – even as she’s apologized for some missteps. "The Great State of Minnesota, where we don’t only welcome immigrants, we send them to Washington," she tweeted at Trump as he traveled to her state Monday. But she’s in unprecedented territory as the U.S. Capitol Police were ordered to conduct a "security … [Read more...] about Rep. Ilhan Omar: Who is the Muslim lawmaker Donald Trump has attacked?
#1: A Former Staunch Enemy of Donald Trump During the 2016 presidential campaign, Elliott Abrams was a member of the so-called #NeverTrump movement, an initiative launched by senior Republican leaders to try to stop Donald Trump from becoming the party's nominee over what was then feared to be non-interventionist attitudes and opposition to nation-building. Abrams wrote several scathing pieces criticising Trump during the campaign, and Trump blocked Rex Tillerson from making Abrams deputy secretary of state in early 2017. #2: Convicted Felon © AP Photo / Jeff RobbinsOliver North: Cocaine Trafficker, 'Terrorism Sponsor'...and New NRA ChiefA prominent proponent of US interventionism in Latin America to prevent the spread of left-wing governments in the 1980s, Abrams was appointed assistant secretary of state for human rights and humanitarian affairs by President Ronald Reagan, … [Read more...] about Iran-Contra Felon & Ex-Trump Opponent: Top Facts About US’ New Venezuela Envoy
