President Trump Had Some Interesting Things to Say About the Relationship Between Ivanka and Melania
the end of President Trump's spontaneous first solo press conference, a
reporter asked something of a throwaway question: "Can you tell us
about what personally Melania Trump does for the country?" President
Trump enthusiastically responded, "Now, that's what I call a nice
question. That is very nice," before diving into a somewhat frenetic
defense of his wife against recent criticism that she is "miserable" in
her role as First Lady, and a comment from a New York Times journalist

President Trump's post-campaign rally in Melbourne, Fla.
four weeks into his administration, President Donald Trump held a
campaign rally in Florida on Saturday, repeating his political promises
and continuing his attacks on the “dishonest media.”“I want to be among
my friends and among the people,” Trump told a cheering crowd packed
into an airport hangar, praising his “truly great movement.”Insisting he
was the victim of false reporting, Trump said his White House was
running “so smoothly” and that he “inherited one big mess.” The
president has been trying refocus after reports of disarray and
dysfunction within his administration. Speaking to reporters on Air
Force One before the rally, Trump said he was holding a campaign rally
because “Life is a campaign.”“To make America great again is absolutely a
campaign,” he said. “It’s not easy, especially when we’re also fighting
the press.”The rally came during Trump’s third straight weekend at his
private south Florida club, Mar-a-Lago. It was another working weekend
for the president, who planned to interview at least four potential
candidates for the job of national security adviser, a position
unexpectedly open after retired Gen. Michael Flynn’s firing early this
week. (AP)See more news-related photo galleries and follow us on Yahoo

according to recent SEC filings. Soros' bets against stocks came in the
