Trump vows executive order requiring 'free speech' at colleges

These 12 cartoons will catch you up on everything to know about this week's news

The executive order, Trump said, would "require colleges to support free speech if they want federal research" money.

President Donald Trump prepared Saturday to address a conference of right-wing activists, capping a turbulent week that included a failed summit with North Korea and explosive testimony by his former lawyer branding him a criminal. Williams was punched recruiting for the conservative group Talking Points USA, inset.

"We reject oppressive speech codes, censorship, political correctness and every other attempt by the hard left to stop people from challenging ridiculous and unsafe ideas", he said. "And if they don't it will be very costly".

President Donald Trump embraced the American flag as he was welcomed with full energy at the 2019 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Saturday.

He said the president paid him hush money to cover up alleged affairs, routinely inflated and deflated his assets for tax and financial gain and is involved in more criminal activity under investigation by the Southern District of NY.

In the months after the raids, Mr Cohen went from being a close ally of President Trump to a foe, providing testimony in a plea deal with prosecutors that the President ordered him to make one hush payment and reimbursed him. Cohen also said that he did not believe that Trump directly colluded with Russian Federation.

The midfielder was given a yellow card in the 82nd minute of his side's 2-0 win in Glasgow for delaying a free kick. Ramos reportedly acknowledged his intentions in a post-game interview, then retracted it on Twitter.

"We hope 28-year-old Zachary Greenberg is prosecuted to the full extent of the law for assault with a deadly weapon, which should be considered an act of hate", he continued. Then he quipped, "I was going to call him, but I don't have to now". "If you look at that first speech, that was very innocent compared to what's happening", Trump said.

In response to the incident, the university expressed "unwavering" commitment to "freedom of expression and perspective".

Trump defended his declaration of a national emergency to obtain wall funding beyond the $1.4 billion that Congress approved for border security.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said on Sunday that he thinks a 2016 offer for dirt on Hillary Clinton by a Russian lawyer to members of the Trump campaign and the subsequent meeting is "direct evidence" of collusion on the part of the president's team.

"The insane female senator from Hawaii - what she said about men [during the Kavanaugh hearings] was so bad", Trump said. It is this tiny illiberal minority making life hard: When they threaten violence against conservative speakers, they force university administrations to spend more money on security-costs that are sometimes passed along to other students. But a top-down, unilateral imposition on colleges and universities does not strike me as the best idea.
