Mulvaney is testifying before the House Budget Committee on Wednesday.

Trump ordered the Pentagon to look into ideas for a military parade.

“The marching orders were: I want a parade like the one in France,” a military official said. “This is being worked at the highest levels of the military.”

Former U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia Robert Jordan told CNN on Monday that President Donald Trump shouldn’t take what King Salman of Saudi Arabia says at face value.

Trump noted on Monday that King Salman “firmly denies” any involvement with the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, and said, “It sounds to me like maybe these could have been rogue killers.”

“Let’s remember, this is the same King Salman who told me after 9/11 that the 9/11 attacks were an Israeli plot,” Jordan said in an interview on CNN. “He said that firmly. Did I believe that? Of course not. I don’t think you can go in with wide-eyed acceptance of anything some of these world leaders say.”

The former ambassador admitted that it’s possible the king was uninvolved in Khashoggi’s disappearance, but said Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman must have known about it, and that investigators have been hampered by the Saudi government delaying their access to the embassy where Khashoggi was last seen.

Estate of Prince Asks Trump to Stop Stealing His Song

Donald Trump is apparently a fan of late Prince. The President of United States has been using the late singer’s hit song “Purple Rain” at pre-Election Day rallies, including one in Mississippi last week. However, Prince’s family members are not happy about it and have asked Trump to stop playing his songs.

In a statement released through the singer’s half-brother Omarr Baker, Prince’s estate stated, “The Prince Estate have never given permission to President Trump or the White House to use Prince’s songs and have requested that they cease all use immediate

With that, the Prince estate is the latest in a long line of musicians who asked Trump to stop using their music at his rallies. Among them are The Rolling Stones, Neil Young and Tom Petty. Recently, Steven Tyler sent him a cease and desist letter asking him to stop using Aerosmith’s music at rallies. It came after Trump played the band’s 1993 hit “Livin’ on the Edge” at a West Virginia rally without Tyler’s permission.

“This is not about Democrats vs. Republicans,” the band’s frontman said in a statement. “I do not let anyone use my songs without my permission. My music is for causes not political campaigns or rallies. Protection copyright and songwriters is what I’ve been fighting for even before this current administration took office. This is one of the reasons why Joe and I have been pushing the Senate to pass the Music Modernization Act. NO is a complete sentence.”

Music Modernization Act legislation itself was officially signed by Trump earlier this week. Kanye West and Kid Rock, as well as executives from the music industry, attended the event.

Trump has decided that the racist confederate leader, Robert E. Lee is really deserving of praise — but President Lincoln, who freed the slaves has some serious issues he wants to talk about.

Near the end of his rally speech, Trump also offered praise for Civil War General Robert E. Lee, saying Lincoln almost developed “a phobia” about being unable to defeat him, until Gen. Ulysses Grant, who Trump noted had “a drinking problem,” but is recognized as a great person.

This is a strange claim, because even Robert E. Lee himself admitted that he waged a war to hold onto legal institution of white supremacy. How Trump is supposed to gain more black voters by praising known racists
