Pres. Trump proposal aims at another way of getting people to work

Trump's comments before his cabinet prompted at least one quick investigation, by NBC News, which noted President Barack Obama signed an $800 billion stimulus in his first 100 days and John F. Kennedy established the Peace Corps within the same time.

Trump convened his top cabinet members for their first meeting, which took the shape of a freakish session in which the heads of the administration's executive branch agencies took turns praising Trump's job performance and accomplishments.

Trump welcomed Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, Labor Secretary Alex Acosta, Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, all of whom were more recently confirmed.

In his opening remarks, in a meeting held in full view of the media, Trump focused on his accomplishments.

Democratic New York Senator Chuck Schumer filmed a amusing spoof of President Trump's cabinet meeting where his senior-level officials praised his leadership.

As a result, the district is in a "unique position" to file legal claims over the emoluments clause, Racine said. Lindsay Jancek, a spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee, on Monday described the lawsuit as "absurd".

A male staffer, apparently playing the role of Priebus, interrupts and tells Schumer, "Before we go any further, I just want to say thank you for the opportunity and blessing to serve your agenda". Vice President Mike Pence said "It is the greatest privilege of my life to serve as vice president".

Trump is promoting a proposal to bring more people into the economy by having them start working as apprentices.

The president also promised a news conference in two weeks to discuss the administration's efforts to combat the Islamic State. The response, in a word, is heartening. Some of you have even followed through with subscriptions, which is especially gratifying. And our promise to you is that we will always strive to provide indispensable journalism to our community.
