Daily Summaries

Trump Daily 11/15/19

  • The president has appealed to the Supreme Court to keep his tax returns secret. This is the first time he could potentially have a case at the court in a personal manner rather than the office of the president.
  • The day after asking South Korea to drastically increase payments for the US military presence there, Trump has made the same request of Japan.
  • I’m not including all of my thoughts on Ambassador Yovanovich’s testimony here, but shortly before it began, the White House released a transcript of Trump’s first call with Zelensky. In April, the White House issued a readout of the call which said they discussed fighting corruption in Ukraine and a commitment to strengthen Democracy there. These topics do not come up in the transcript. The White House lied in their initial readout.
