A Victory for the World
“On behalf of the American people, WELCOME HOME!”
– President Donald J. Trump
Early Thursday morning, President Donald J. Trump welcomed home three Americans who had been held in North Korea. First Lady Melania Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and Second Lady Karen Pence joined the President for the arrival.
“The fact that we were able to get them out so soon was really a tribute to a lot of things, including a certain process that’s taking place right now,” President Trump said. Vice President Pence added that “to be able to have an opportunity to visit with the detainees on the tarmac was deeply moving to Karen and me.”
In a clear sign the Administration’s diplomatic efforts are working, the President also announced that his much-anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will take place in Singapore on June 12th. “We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!” the President tweeted.
Withdrawing from the Iran Nuclear Deal
“President Trump withdrew from the Iran Nuclear Deal because the United States cannot permit the world’s leading sponsor of terror to ever obtain a nuclear weapon.”
– Vice President Mike Pence
President Trump ended America’s participation in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)–better known as the Iran nuclear deal–this week and will re-impose sanctions on the Iranian regime.
The bottom line is that the nuclear deal failed to protect America’s national security interests. Recent evidence shows that Iran negotiated the JCPOA in bad faith, and the deal handed the Iranian regime far too much in exchange for too little. President Trump remains committed to ensuring that Iran has no possible path to a nuclear weapon. “Finally: A US president is pushing back on Iran’s dangerous and growing power,” the New York Post’s Editorial Board wrote.

President Trump’s Nominee to Lead the CIA Shines This Week
“If I am confirmed as Director, you have my solemn commitment that I will position this agency to provide the intelligence support our country needs to meet the challenges of today and those of tomorrow.”
– Acting CIA Director Gina Haspel
Appearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee this week, Gina Haspel showed that President Trump picked the right person to lead the CIA. Haspel is a widely praised career intelligence officer, and by opposing her, some Senators are attempting to block a 33-year career veteran of the CIA–not to mention the first woman ever nominated to be the Agency’s Director.
Current and former intelligence officials attest that Haspel is “unfailingly honest,” “committed to the rule of law,” “professional,” and has a “high moral character.” She has an unparalleled understanding of the CIA, and the Senate should vote to confirm her quickly.

The First Lady Launches ‘Be Best’
“I feel strongly that, as adults, we can and should be best at educating our children about the importance of a healthy and balanced life. So today, I’m very excited to announce BE BEST, an awareness campaign dedicated to the most valuable and fragile among us – our children.” – First Lady Melania Trump
First Lady Melania Trump announced the ‘Be Best’ initiative this week to help young children achieve their full potential. The pillars of the initiative address three crucial issues facing families today: child well-being, social media use, and the risk of opioid abuse.
“There is one goal to BE BEST — and that is to educate children about the many issues they are facing today,” the First Lady said in remarks from the White House Rose Garden.

Lower Drug Prices for Americans
“It’s going to take years of restructuring this system. But these are big, bold steps, and it’s the most comprehensive attack on prescription drug affordability in history by any President.” – Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar
Yesterday, President Trump rolled out the most comprehensive approach to making prescription drugs affordable in U.S. history. The President’s blueprint to lower drug prices has four major components: increasing competition in drug markets, giving Medicare Part D plans better tools to negotiate discounts, providing incentives for lower list prices, and decreasing patients out-of-pocket spending.
“The American people deserve a healthcare system that takes care of them–not one that taxes and takes advantage of our patients and our consumers and our citizens,” President Trump said upon announcing the new plan.

Protecting American Tax Dollars
“Our moral duty to the taxpayer requires us to make our government leaner and more accountable.”
– President Donald J. Trump
President Trump is looking out for Americans’ tax dollars by requesting that Congress rescind billions of dollars in excessive spending. The President promised the American people he would reign in out-of-control Federal spending, and he’s using every tool at his disposal to do so.
“The Trump administration and Congress must be responsible with each taxpayer dollar that comes to Washington. Every member of Congress should support these rescissions,” Russ Vought, Deputy Director of the Office of Management and Budget, writes in The Wall Street Journal. https://click.mail.whitehouse11.gov/?qs=5840876198e9f338c7992cbeb64cbb86cad12c4fec1967b23ab01dd552e873caefc67bc70d2cdb7a4827e8be9e56e2c8ab76661d1394073a
