The week has been a trying one for Buttigieg , who returned to South Bend on Sunday after an officer shot and killed a man who was allegedly breaking into cars with a knife in hand. In response, Buttigieg canceled an appearance at a Democratic National Committee event on Monday, as well as a series of fundraisers in California on Tuesday and Wednesday. "Officers should activate their body cameras during all work-related interactions with civilians," South Bend Police Chief Scott Ruszkowski told officers Tuesday on the orders of Buttigieg, the mayor's office announced. "In the wake of Sunday's shooting, we must acknowledge the hurt and honor the humanity of all involved in this loss of life," Buttigieg said in a statement. "We also have a responsibility to take every step that can promote transparency and fairness, both in dealing with the recent incident and looking towards the future."

Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Richard Shelby, R-Ala., and Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., the top Democrat on the Appropriations Committee, have forged a tentative agreement on a $4.59 billion supplemental appropriations package for the border and humanitarian assistance, Fox News has learned. But Senate Democrats voted to separate out the nearly $5 billion humanitarian funding for the border from the package. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., hopes to reintroduce the supplemental funding package focused mostly on providing $3.3 billion for necessities such as food, medical care and shelter for unaccompanied children and families coming across the border as a standalone proposal. CLICK HERE FOR THE FOX NEWS APPThe supplemental spending bill, if approved, will be an additional spending measure, on top of the 12 annual appropriations bills which run the government.

"We stared down the unholy alliance of lobbyists and donors and special interests who made a living bleeding our country dry," Trump said. For the last two and a half years, we have been under siege.”And after polling the boisterous crowd, Trump appeared to settle on a new campaign slogan: "Keep America Great." Trump called Kavanaugh a "great gentleman" who is "highly respected" throughout the judiciary, and said Democrats also targeted his family. "Just imagine what this angry left-wing mob would do if they were in charge of this country," Trump said. Trump has an unprecedented $40.8 million in cash-on-hand, as of the start of the second quarter of fundraising on April 1.

Defense and other lawyers say Queens prosecutors sometimes interview defendants waiting for arraignment before they have obtained a lawyer, a practice rarely if ever used by other prosecutors in the city. Queens prosecutors are also said to regularly press defendants to accept plea deals before they have been indicted and can see the evidence against them. Unlike other boroughs, the office has no dedicated u nit to address wrongful convictions. Tiffany Cabán, a 31-year-old public defender, is the best pick. Ms. Cabán does not have the managerial experience of Melinda Katz, the Queens borough president, or the prosecutorial experience of Greg Lasak, a retired judge and former longtime assistant Queens district attorney.

(CNN) Canadian leader Justin Trudeau and his Cabinet have reapproved the Trans Mountain oil pipeline expansion project, with government profits from the tax revenues and other funds to be put toward clean energy ventures, the Prime Minister announced Tuesday. The expansion project was first approved in 2016 but in August 2018, the Federal Court of Appeal stopped the approval and ordered a reconsideration of the project by the National Energy Board, CNN news partner CBC reported. "We also believe that (the project) could solve the core of economic challenge we currently face, it's really simple. Right now, we basically have only one customer for our energy resources, the United States. "Every business person knows that when you only have a single customer you're in a weaker position, you're vulnerable to that customer's desires, to changes in the market and policy orientation.

The Trump era has been rough for the Republican Party’s efforts to address its enduring difficulties in attracting women candidates and voters. In the midterms, Democrats claimed 59 percent of women voters. In terms of both money and a cohesive plan for advancing women candidates, Republican consultants and candidates acknowledge that they remain outmatched by Democrats. Of the seven members of the House Republican leadership, there is only one woman, Liz Cheney, the conference chairwoman. Of the 14 members of the Democratic House leadership, five are women, including the speaker, Nancy Pelosi.

Scott Olson/Getty ImagesThough he has repeatedly slammed Hillary Clinton tonight, President Trump made two brief references to 2020 rival Joe Biden in Orlando at his 2020 kickoff rally. While touting the economy under his administration, Trump referenced former President Barack Obama's "magic wand" comments regarding the GDP. "We’ll tell Sleepy Joe that we found the magic wand. He also made a passing reference to Biden earlier when he was talking about China. They took us for suckers," Trump said.

After all, Trump isn't choosing to announce his 2020 bid in Florida by accident. It's a state he won in 2016 and one that he knows he badly needs if he wants to win in 2020. But there's also reason to take this latest Florida poll with a grain of salt. Here are the victory margins in Florida in the last five presidential races: 2016 (Trump +1), 2012 (Obama +1), 2008 (Obama +3), 2004 (Bush +5), 2000 (even). The story is the same in the 2018 statewide races in Florida; Republicans won both the governor's office and the Senate race by razor-thin margins.

[What you need to know to start the day: Get New York Today in your inbox.] President Trump said on Tuesday that he would not apologize for his harsh comments in 1989 about the Central Park Five, the five black and Latino men who as teenagers were wrongly convicted of the brutal rape of a jogger in New York City. Mr. Trump was asked about newspaper advertisements he bought back then calling for New York State to adopt the death penalty after the attack. (The ads never explicitly called for the death penalty for the five defendants.) Mr. Trump’s remarks about the Central Park Five were strikingly similar to comments he made in reaction to the deadly violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017.

But it did nothing to threaten the U.S. and was really a tacit U.S. ally in defeating ISIS in Syria and Iraq. But Trump has alienated our allies by his incessant lying, his tariffs on their products and his rejection of their willingness to try to renegotiate the Iran nuclear deal in a limited way. Trump could have gone to Germany, France, the U.K., Russia and China and said: “Let’s improve the Iran deal. Instead, he wanted to show that he could transform Iran and one-up Obama. They’ve not only allegedly attacked the shipping lanes, but they’ve announced plans to resume higher uranium enrichment heading for weapons-grade levels.

Lyfted Farms: Juicy Indoor Grown FlowersImage-1 Internet Photo From Instagram Account of LyftedThe literal definition of quality often has many names. You don't need to smoke a large amount of high quality cannabis to have a really wonderful experience. Tasting Notes for the three point five gram containers of flowers from Lyfted Farms and I love these names! I like it that way because chasing high THC is flawed science in my opinion. Because Lyfted Farms is located in California, the quality level is really high to begin with, the market demands it.

Mario Draghi was the target of President Trump’s Twitter eruption on June 18, 2019. In a forum the President of the ECB dismissed the comments. Image: AFPIt happens to the best from time to time: Mario Draghi on Tuesday found himself on the receiving end of President Trump’s latest Twitter missile.

Mr. Trump’s latest detonation on monetary policy came after Mr. Draghi promised in a speech that the ECB could continue to stimulate the eurozone economy if it needs to.

WASHINGTON — Mark T. Esper is a 1986 graduate of West Point, where his classmates included Mike Pompeo, now the secretary of state. He went on to work for a conservative think tank, then as a lobbyist for one of the nation’s largest military contractors. And on Tuesday he was abruptly elevated from his job as Army secretary to be acting defense secretary, becoming the third person to lead the Pentagon under President Trump. Mr. Esper, 55, was catapulted into the role after Patrick Shanahan stepped down as acting secretary amid revelations about domestic abuse charges in his family and questions about whether he could be confirmed. Mr. Trump did not say whether he intended to nominate Mr. Esper to the role permanently, but in remarks to reporters on Monday, he seemed to give him strong backing.
