Video of the day: America will never be a socialist or communist country!
Today, President Trump honored veterans of the Bay of Pigs Invasion, who in 1961 fought bravely against the Castro regime in a struggle for liberty over tyranny.
“We will honor your courage with my Administration’s determination to defeat communism and socialism,” President Trump said.
As part of America’s continuing fight against oppressive socialist regimes, President Trump announced today that the U.S. Treasury will prohibit American travelers from staying at properties owned by the Cuban government. The United States will also further restrict the importation of Cuban alcohol and tobacco products.
“These actions will ensure that U.S. dollars do not fund the Cuban regime and go directly to the Cuban people,” President Trump said. “Big difference.”
The President also recognized Hispanic Heritage Month. Nearly 60,000 Hispanic Americans serve as police officers, and more than 300,000 are part of our great American military. Over half of U.S. Border Patrol agents are of Hispanic heritage, as well.
“Hispanic Americans teach their children to love our country, honor our history, and respect our great American flag. Hispanic Americans embody the American Dream.”
Press Secretary: Democrats again show their disregard for our Constitution
Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany called out Democrat leaders Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez yesterday for their “blatant disregard for the United States Constitution.”
Their latest stunt: “Apparently, it is now a high crime and misdemeanor worthy of impeachment for a lawfully elected President of the United States to exercise his constitutional duty” to nominate a Supreme Court justice, McEnany said.
Of the nearly 30 times a Supreme Court vacancy has occurred during a presidential election year, the sitting president has made a nomination in every single instance.
To block President Trump and the Senate majority from filling the Supreme Court vacancy, House Democrats and their media allies have threatened a second impeachment—or, if that isn’t enough, to “blow up the entire system.”
“This President will proceed undaunted by Democrat threats. President Trump will fulfill his duty. President Trump will appoint the next Supreme Court justice.”
