4:05PM ET - Newt Gingrich, author of a new novel the Speaker has co-written with Pete Earley, “Vengeance,” and also the author of Understanding Trump, and currently providing the course Defending America, which can be found online at DefendingAmericaCourse.com. He is here to comment and discuss Sean’s exclusive interview with President Trump last night.
“The confidence in our country is back like it hasn’t been in many, many years,” the president told a crowd of about 1,000 at an event for truckers in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. “The fact is, America is finally back on the right track but our country and our economy cannot take off like they should” without tax reform.
Trump largely hewed to his script, avoiding lengthy riffs on other topics and promising expansive benefits from a tax plan that has yet to be fully detailed by the White House or tax writers in Congress.
“You better get it passed,” Trump said of Congress. “They will, I know.” (h/t Politico)
4:30PM ET - Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky has not given up on a healthcare solution for America. He has negotiated with the President and has an answer to the nation’s healthcare crisis. The President has taken his pen to sign an executive order to make this possible; from Senator Rand Paul’s op ed in Breitbart on this order today:
“I am considering an executive order on associations, and that will take care of a tremendous number of people with regard to health care,” Mr. Trump said then. “I’ll probably be signing a very major executive order where people can go out, cross state lines, do lots of things, and buy their own health care. And that will be probably signed next week. It’s being finished now. It’s going to cover a lot of territory and a lot of people — millions of people.”
Senator Rand Paul, Republican of Kentucky, said he had been working with the Trump administration to clear the way for association health plans, which he said would allow more people to obtain good coverage at a lower cost.
“The health care debate is not over,” Mr. Paul said. “Conservatives are still fighting for free-market reforms to the health care system. I am excited to be working with President Trump on this initiative.”
5:05PM ET - Pastor Darrell Scott, Executive Director of the National Diversity Coalition for Trump and Senior Pastor of the New Spirit Revival Center and Reverend Charles Christian Adams, Presiding Pastor of Hartford Memorial Baptist Church, stop by to talk about the spirit of nation and the battle for truth in the land of fake news, the depravity of Hollywood and the NFL’s politicization of beloved American pastime. What will happen tonight with Thursday night football?
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and the player’s association executive director released a joint statement that said the league will work together on how to “make progress on the important social issues that players have vocalized.”
“There has been no change in the current policy regarding the anthem,” the joint statement read. “We are coming together to deal with these issues in a civil and constructive way.”
On Tuesday, however, it was reported that Goodell called the ongoing protests by players “divisive” and “a barrier to having honest conversations and making real progress on the underlying issues.” (h/t NY Post)
