Trump takes break from White House with 'working vacation'

Leaked conversations show US President Donald Trump asked Mexican president Pena Nieto to stop saying publicly that Mexico won’t pay for its construction of border wall

Trump, who is grappling with a Russian Federation scandal, has been the target of extraordinary leaks from government officials since he took the helm. "Working hard on tax cuts & reform!" he added minutes later.

Trump also announced on Twitter that Kelly, who previously served in the administration as Homeland Security Secretary, would take over for former chief of staff Reince Priebus, who he also tweeted would be leaving the White House.

But the president's last four visits to the club have drawn protests. Trump's shocking victory led his son-in-law to believe he could reinvent government like Al Gore, micromanage the White House like James Baker and restructure the Middle East like Moses.

The national news media - especially the New York Times, Washington Post and Wall Street Journal - have been extremely aggressive in pursuing the scandalous allegations plaguing the Trump White House.

Democratic Senator Mark Warner, who is Vice Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, expressed apprehensions that the leak may be "reflective of a chaotic White House" and demanded that the president should investigate the leaks.

Judging from his past behavior, the fastest thing President Trump will drive this month is a golf cart, which means the putting greens are likely the only things at risk.

"If ObamaCare is hurting people, & it is, why shouldn't it hurt the insurance companies & why should Congress not be paying what public pays?" he wrote.

And that's all President Trump wants: to scare his underlings into serving him rather than our democracy. Aides say these grand steps have not been repaired in 64 years, dating back to the presidencies of Harry Truman and Dwight Eisenhower.

Tuesday, he touted the stock market's "all-time high".

Though Kelly acknowledges he can not stop Trump from using Twitter, he wants to push "the tweets in the right direction", Politico reported, citing a White House official. "Only way for me to get the truth out!" Residents say that they never would have guessed that Bedminster would be home to the New Jersey White House.

"But Fake News said I called it a dump - TOTALLY UNTRUE".

Joe Scarborough, a former Republican congressman from Florida, hosts the MSNBC show "Morning Joe".

Trump's popularity is at an all-time low, as well.

"Excellent Jobs Numbers just released - and I have only just begun". And there's been not only increased willingness to use the legal tools that he has at hand, but there's also extraordinary technological abilities to track people's interactions, you know, with metadata in such a way that you don't have to tail somebody to figure out what park bench they're getting information on during lunchtime. You know damn well that if you get found out, you will be out the door so fast you won't know what hit you, and you'd better hope you didn't sign any legal nondisclosure agreements because if you did your boss is going to take you for everything you've got - and you'll deserve it.

The President plans to spend Friday attending a meeting on hurricane season at FEMA headquarters, dine privately with Vice President Mike Pence and speak by phone to French President Emanuel Macron.

But with Trump now headed to a 17-day vacation, he is actually on pace to outspend Obama's entire eight-year term - and do it in less than a year.
