Klobuchar: Trump trying to undermine constitution

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f46wjsjysTY

(22 Feb 2019) U.S. Senator and Democratic Presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar says President Donald Trump is trying to undermine the U.S. constitution every day. Klobuchar, speaking at the Ankeny Area Democrats Winter Banquet and Fundraiser in Des Moines, said Trump "tweets whatever he wants every morning, but doesn't respect the ammendment that allows him to do it." Klobuchar also blasted Trump's emergency declaration, which he is using to try to obtain funds for a wall on the U.S.-Mexican border without congressional approval. "I thought an emergency was floods in Iowa," Klobuchar commented. "I thought that emergency was wildfires in Colorado or a hurricane in Florida. But he has put that on its head. I don't think it's going to be found constitutional but that's the kind of games that he is playing with our Constitution.

USA/Mexico – Migrant caravan swells to 5,000, resumes advance toward US / Trump: Immigration is a ve

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQOHSZK3qF4

(4 Dec 2018) Despite Mexican efforts to stop them at the border, a growing caravan of Central American migrants on October 21st 2018 resumed their advance towards the US border in southern Mexico. Their numbers swelled to about 5,000 overnight and at first light they set out walking towards the Mexican town of Tapachula, 10 abreast in a line stretching approximately a mile (1.5 kilometers). It was not immediately clear where the additional travellers had materialised from since about 2,000 gathered on the Mexican side on October 2oth. They seemed likely to be people who had been waiting on the bridge over the Suchiate River or in the Guatemalan town of Tecun Uman and who decided to cross during the night. At dawn there were still an estimated 1,500 migrants on the Guatemalan side hoping to enter legally. The migrants, who say they gave up trying to enter Mexico legally because the asylum application process was too slow, gathered on Saturday at a park in the border city of Ciudad Hidalgo. *** U.S. President Donald Trump says the number of military troops deployed to the U.S.-Mexican border could go as high as 15,000. Trump told reporters at the White House on October 31st that "we'll go up to anywhere between 10 and 15,000 military personnel on top of Border Patrol, ICE and everybody else at the border." He says the move would be aimed at preventing the entry of a caravan of migrants traveling from Central America. The caravan is still nearly 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometers) from the border. Trump says that the U.S. was "going to be prepared" and that the migrants are "not coming into our country." Currently there are 2,100 National Guard helping at the border. The Pentagon says an additional 5,200 active-duty troops could join them. *** US President Donald Trump says he told the US military mobilizing at the Southwest border that if migrants try to throw rocks at them, the troops should act as though the rocks are "firearms." Trump made the comments November 1st in a speech on immigration. He promised an executive order sometime next week that would ban migrants from claiming asylum if they cross the border illegally, and would set up vast tent cities that would hold anyone coming over the border. US immigration laws say migrants seeking asylum can do so no matter how they arrive at the US. Several caravans of migrants from Central America are slowly winding north. One group got into a violent confrontation with Mexican police at the border with Guatemala, throwing rocks. Trump also spoke about Oprah Winfrey campaining for Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams and how he believes midterms will be a success for Republicans. *** Thousands of Central American migrants travelling with the so-called "migrant caravan" moved to Sinaloa on November 13th, going through three states just in one day. Early in the morning they were taken by bus to a highway tollbooth near Guadalajara where they waited for hours for a ride to go to their next destination, Ixtlan del Rio and from there to Sinaloa. They thought other buses would be waiting for them to take them through hurricane-ravaged Nayarit to the neighboring state of Sinaloa, farther north. But no other buses showed up and few trucks passed to pick them up, leaving many to walk to Ixtlan del Rio, about 48 miles (80 kilometres) from Guadalajara. Most of the migrants appeared intent on taking the Pacific coast route northward to the border city of Tijuana, which was still about 1,350 miles (2,200 kilometres) away.

USA – Trump says Democrats colluded with Russia / Trump: I answered Mueller’s questions very easily

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HleO86Cf2do

(18 Dec 2018) US President Donald Trump claimed on October 8th 2018 that "the Democrats colluded with Russia". Trump was speaking in Washington after returning from his meeting with Deputy US Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. He claimed that the Obama administration did nothing when it found out about possible Russian meddling in the 2016 US elections. Trump also commented on Jamal Khashoggi, a missing Saudi journalist, saying: "I do not like it". When asked about superstar Taylor Swift's support for Democratic candidates in Tennessee, Trump said he liked her music "about 25 percent less now". *** President Donald Trump says he has answered written questions from special counsel Robert Mueller but hasn't yet submitted them. Trump told reporters in the Oval Office on November 16th that he answered the questions "very easily" this week but added that "you have to always be careful." The president did not say when he would turn over the answers to Mueller as part of the ongoing investigation into possible ties between Russia and the Trump campaign. Trump had huddled with lawyer at the White House this week but made clear: "my lawyers don't write answers, I write answers." Mueller had signaled a willingness to accept written answers on matters of collusion. The White House has said it would not answer Mueller's questions on possible obstruction of justice. The president spoke to reporters shortly after a district judge ordered the Trump administration to immediately return the White House press credentials of CNN reporter Jim Acosta, though a lawsuit over the credentials' revocation is continuing. Trump said "people have to behave" while in the White House and he said his staff will be "writing up rules and regulations" to guide press for future events. The president insists he wants "total freedom of the press," but journalists "have to act with respect." Trump didn't say what the new rules and regulations will entail. *** Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former lawyer, has pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about work he did on a Trump real estate deal in Russia. Cohen made a surprise appearance on November 29th in a New York courtroom. He admitted to making false statements in 2017 to the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence about a plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. In August 2018, Cohen pleaded guilty to other federal charges involving his taxi businesses, bank fraud and his campaign work for Trump. One of the prosecutors working with Special Counsel Robert Mueller was present in the courtroom. Cohen's lawyer told the judge the plea deal involved cooperation with Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the U.S. election. *** A federal judge has agreed to delay former national security adviser Michael Flynn's sentencing so he can continue cooperating with the Russia probe. U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan on December 18th set a status conference for March 2019. Attorneys for Flynn asked the judge to postpone the sentencing. The stunning request came after Sullivan warned Flynn that if he were sentenced as scheduled Tuesday, he might not get all the credit for his cooperation with investigators that he is entitled to. Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his Russia contacts. Prosecutors had recommended no prison time, citing his cooperation. But the judge's rebuke raised the prospect that Flynn could get a harsher sentence. 00:55:18 Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_Archive Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/APArchives Google+: https://plus.google.com/b/102011028589719587178/+APArchive​ Tumblr: https://aparchives.tumblr.com/​​ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/APNews/ You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/adf5bf570ca34712ba93842fdac2ecaf

Pence, Netanyahu lays wreaths at Ghetto monument

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gg1OyfFHMhc

(14 Feb 2019) US Vice President Mike Pence, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu laid wreaths at a monument dedicated to the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Uprising on Thursday. The monument is a tribute to the Jewish fighters who opposed German Nazi troops. They were accompanied by Poland's Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, as Poland and the United States co-hosted an international conference in Warsaw on security in the Middle East. In April 1943, hundreds of young Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto took up arms against the overwhelming might of the Nazi German army and fought to liberate Poland from the occupying Germans during World War II. The revolt ended in death for most of the fighters, yet left behind an enduring symbol of resistance.

USA – Trump claims Republican party doing ‘very well’ with women vote / Trump says he’ll adopt ‘warl

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6EFLyBq6UjA

(13 Dec 2018) US President Donald Trump told reporters outside of the White House on October 31st that the campaign for the Republican party ahead of the midterm elections was "going very well" and claimed that his party was doing "very well with the women vote." He claimed that women "want security, they want safety" in reference to a caravan of migrants traveling toward the US from Central America, which Trump has portrayed as "dangerous." Trump also took another jab at birthright citizenship in the US, once again asserting he could act by executive order to unilaterally end the policy. *** US President Donald Trump said on November 7th that he would adopt a "warlike posture" if House Democrats come after him with investigations of his financial and other matters. With Democrats seizing control of the House, Republicans for the first time in the Trump era will no longer hold sway in all branches of the federal government. The new, split reality that Washington woke up to on Wednesday poses stark challenges for the White House, but also presents some political opportunities. Aides had been quietly prepared for this outcome for weeks and will now kick into overdrive before the new Congress takes office in January 2019. The first move likely belongs to Democrats. With their takeover of the House fuelled by anti-Trump energy coursing through their supporters, Democrats now face expectations from their constituents to torment Trump, using their newly acquired power of the subpoena to launch a series of investigations into matters like the president's business dealings and potential Cabinet-member corruption while also trying to unearth Trump's tax returns. There also could be pressure to impeach Trump, though chances of removal from office by a Republican-controlled Senate are remote. *** Rep. Nancy Pelosi says President Donald Trump is the "only obstacle" to keeping government open. A government shutdown is looming over a fight for government funding. The funding fight is something leaders of both parties had hoped to avoid as Congress seeks to wrap up its work for the year and adjourn for the holidays. But Trump, who for months had suggested he'd be willing to force a shutdown over wall funding, dashed hopes for a quick resolution on Tuesday, sparring with Pelosi and Schumer during an extraordinary Oval Office meeting that he made sure played out in front of television cameras. Rep. Nancy Pelosi also said she doesn't feel constricted by an agreement that clears the way for her to become House speaker next year in exchange for agreeing to hold the post for no more than four additional years. The California Democrat told reporters December 13th that four years is a long time. The 78-year-old Pelosi agreed December 12th to a limit her service in the House's top job. By doing that, she won over insurgent Democrats who've wanted to clear the way for younger leadership. She'd spent weeks resisting a time limit, saying she didn't want to lose clout. 01:01:05 Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_Archive Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/APArchives Google+: https://plus.google.com/b/102011028589719587178/+APArchive​ Tumblr: https://aparchives.tumblr.com/​​ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/APNews/ You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/6a06490b12f441af905594e345964a5f

Venezuela on agenda as Trump welcomes Duque

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FFF4wH25zs

(13 Feb 2019) President Donald Trump says Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's unwillingness to accept humanitarian aid shows what happens when the wrong government holds power. Trump commented during a White House meeting Wednesday with Colombian President Ivan Duque. Duque, whose country borders Venezuela, accused Maduro of committing a crime against humanity. Maduro has blocked aid shipments for his crisis-torn country, calling the aid part of a U.S.-led coup to topple him. The U.S. and other nations want Maduro to step down and have recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as Venezuela's rightful leader. Venezuelans have also staged large protests to pressure Maduro to leave. Guaido said this week that he will try to run caravans of badly needed food and medicine into Venezuela but won't start for nearly two weeks.

Trump insists ‘the wall is very, very on its way’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdQfsga3ah0

(13 Feb 2019) RESTRICTION SUMMARY: AP CLIENTS ONLY POOL – AP CLIENTS ONLY Washington – 13 February 2019 1. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, U.S. President: ++SOUNDBITE PARTIALLY OVERLAID++ "As we review the new proposal from Congress, I can promise you this, I will never waiver from my sacred duty to defend this nation and its people. We will get the job done. The wall is very, very on its way. It's happening as we speak. We're building, as we speak.  In the most desperately needed areas. And it's a big wall. It's a strong wall. It's a wall that people aren't going through very easy.  Going to have to be an extremely good shape to get over this one. They would be able to climb Mt. Everest a lot easier, I think. But it's happening and we have other things happening too. We're strengthening up the ports of entry. We're using tremendous technology, including drones, but tremendously technology. But it all hinges around the walls because you don't have the walls.The technology is almost useless. " 2. Cutaway 3. Wide audience 4. Wide, audience listening to Trump STORYLINE: President Donald Trump says the wall he envisions in some places along the southern border would be harder to scale than Mount Everest. Even by Trump standards of exaggeration, that's a huge leap. The estimated height for some proposed barriers runs as high as 30 feet. Mount Everest stands nearly 30,000 feet high. Trump made the claim during a speech Wednesday to a conference of the Major County Sheriffs and Major Cities Chiefs Association. He says the wall is "very, very on its way" and says people will have to be in extremely good physical shape to scale it. He says migrants trying to cross illegally "would be able to climb Mount Everest a lot easier." Even before there's a final deal to seal, President Donald Trump is working to sell the agreement on border security he is expected to sign later this week as a political win, even though it contains a mere fraction of the border wall money he's spent months demanding. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

GOP, victims’ family members push border wall

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMjrf7Roago

(13 Feb 2019) The conservative Women for Trump political campaign group brought together Republican Members of Congress along with several families who lost loved ones to illegal immigration Wednesday on Capitol Hill to rally support for a southern border wall. On the steps of the Capitol, they held a news conference urging Congress to increase border security. House Minority leader, Rep. Kevin McCarthy, said what while the group believed in legal immigration, "but that also means our borders need to be secure because individuals – one have been killed, two the human trafficking that comes across the amount of drugs." Emotional parents spoke about how they lost their children and urged more support for construction of the wall. "it's time to make these fools listen to us, " said Melanie Kortlang, whose daughter was killed in a San Diego car crash that involved an undocumented immigrant. "Enough is enough, we need to build the damn wall," she added.
