President Donald Trump, trying to dig out from political holes of his own making on top of the expanding House impeachment inquiry, held forth for 71 minutes Monday during what was ostensibly a Cabinet meeting but ended up being a familiar torrent of grievance, defensiveness and bold statements about his expansive view of his own powers.
President Donald Trump on Monday said his much-criticized attempt to stage the G7 at one of his golf courses was not meant to promote his business brand, arguing he's too famous to "need promotion". That did nothing to allay concerns that the president has used his office to enrich his business interests.
During the news conference last week, Mulvaney added a third condition, whether Ukraine was assisting a U.S. Justice Department probe of the origins of 2016 election investigations that eventually implicated Russia's interference to help Trump win.
Mulvaney said the White House reached that determination after visiting 10 sites across the country. Blumenthal is the lead plaintiff in a lawsuit filed against Trump by 30 Democratic senators and 166 House members in 2017.

The governor's office in Hawaii said a "general search" had been done, but didn't think any specific site had been considered. He followed up that sentiment on Monday morning, claiming it would've been "free" to host the event at Trump Doral, even though his administration said last week that the government would be charged at cost for the event.

"Sir", NBC News White House Correspondent Peter Alexander said to Trump, "the Constitution says treason is punishable by death".
Psaki said, "How it works, you use levers like if you do more work on human rights and you're better on that, then we may unleash some more military assistance for you".
On Saturday, Trump sought in his unusual reversal to emphasise what he said were the resort's positive features for hosting a large gathering. The president himself, already indignant that Republicans weren't defending him on Syria and Doral, was additionally displeased that Mulvaney exclusively made the headlines worse, in response to three White Home officers and Republicans near the White Home not approved to talk publicly about non-public conversations. "Absolutely", Mulvaney concluded on Fox.
