Here Are the 10 Craziest Moments From Trump’s Bonkers 51 Minute Media Blitz

President Donald Trump gave a surprise interview to Fox & Friends earlier today, and then eventually opened up to the rest of the White House press pool, which led to 51 minutes of sparring with the media and all sorts of unbelievable statements. Since the report from the Justice Department Inspector General is still the top story of day, Trump fielded a number of questions on that topic — many of which he used to rip on James Comey, Peter Strzok, Hillary Clinton and his many other political enemies. The IG report was hardly the only topic that came up though, and Trump ended up making headlines with his comments on the G7, North Korea, and everything in between. To make things simple for you, here’s a list of the 10 craziest moments during Trump’s media scrum. 1.

It’s Happening: Pentagon Says Military Drills on Korean Peninsula Are ‘Suspended Indefinitely’

An official from the Pentagon has announced that the U.S. Military will cease major military exercises on the Korean Peninsula for the foreseeable future. This comes after President Donald Trump held a press conference in which he suggested halting drills in the region after meeting with Kim Jong Un. The announcement comes amid plans for a joint military exercise on the Korean Peninsula in August. The Pentagon is expected to make a formal announcement on these matters, but for now, it appears that the field drills by air, naval and special operations forces are being taken off the schedule. When Trump spoke of cutting back military exercises earlier in the week, he referred to them as provocative “war games” and insisted that North Korea has pledged to Continue reading "It’s Happening: Pentagon Says Military Drills on Korean Peninsula Are ‘Suspended Indefinitely’"

Fox News’ The Five Bashes Media for North Korea Coverage: All Trump Gets Is ‘100% Negativity’

On Wednesday, the hosts of The Five predictably bashed the media for their coverage of President Donald Trump‘s historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. It all started when Jesse Watters kvetched that Trump gets no respect despite the fact it was the Obama administration that “botched pretty much everything they touched.” “And then Trump comes in to try to broker a peace deal, gives up almost nothing,” the Fox host continued on. “The same people that praised Obama now are complaining…I think Obama gave Trump keys to the White House and said, by the way, I’ve done nothing on North Korea for eight years. It’s the biggest problem. You’re going to have to deal with it. Good luck. Trump tries to step up and bring peace to the peninsula and all he hears is 100% negativity and destroys the media narrative.” Juan Williams then offered Continue reading "Fox News’ The Five Bashes Media for North Korea Coverage: All Trump Gets Is ‘100% Negativity’"

President Trump Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize Following North Korea Summit

President Donald Trump has been officially nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, just days after the historic meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un and just weeks after 18 House Republicans sent a letter to the Norwegian Nobel Committee formally requesting he be nominated. The nomination is past the deadline for the next Prize, so his name is submitted for the 2019 awards. The Hill reports that it was two members of Norway’s right-wing Progress Party, Christian Tybring-Gjedde and Per-Willy Amundsen, who made the nomination. Norwegian broadcaster NPK reports that Tybring-Gjedde considers this nomination “a nudge to make Donald Trump finish what he’s started.” [Featured image via screengrab] — Follow Caleb Howe (@CalebHowe) on Twitter
