Trump holds cabinet meeting, promises change

Irune Rengel | 13 Junio, 2017, 04:32

Not all of Trump's officials were as glowing - Defense Secretary James Mattis, for example, used his speaking slot to praise US troops - but the message from the Trump Cabinet was clear: The agenda is moving forward.

Monday's meeting was billed as the first to bring together Trump's complete cabinet, nearly six months after Trump took office, after delays in confirming Perdue, as well as Labour Secretary Alexander Acosta and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer.

After Trump extolled the achievements of his young administration, asserting that he had accomplished more than any president in his first six months -with "few exceptions", like President Franklin Delano Roosevelt - his Cabinet added on more accolades.

He hailed his plan for the "single biggest tax cut in American history", even though he hasn't proposed a plan and Congress hasn't acted on one.

This is Rodman's first visit under President Trump's administration - but there is no evidence that Trump is aware of his travel. Rodman's second visit to North Korea is expected to be just as controversial amidst heightened tensions.

The coal company said the new mine will create as many as 100 jobs and the decision to open it was made in August.

Democrat lawmaker Schumer apparently took note of the eerily fawning meeting of Trump's cabinet, and filmed a parody of the session with his staff.

"I am not going to say a damn thing in front of the media", CIA Director Mike Pompeo barked, eliciting very loud laughter around the room. "The president is keeping his word to the American people", Pence said.

Attorney-General Jeff Sessions, who will testify to the Senate in connection with the Russian Federation scandal Tuesday, said law enforcement officers across the country were "so thrilled" about the ideas Trump had brought to the White House.

Energy Secretary Rick Perry gave his "hats off" to Trump for taking a stand against the Paris climate accord.

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, for example, told the president "we thank you for the opportunity and blessing to serve your agenda", - a line mocked nearly word for word in Schumer's re-creation.

Another staffer began to compliment Schumer's hair, when a male staffer interrupted to mimic precisely Priebus' praise for Trump. Chris Lu, who served as the White House cabinet secretary for president Barack Obama had more pointed criticism.

When it was over, reporters in the room asked questions of the president related to the ongoing Russian Federation investigations.

"You're right, Jeff, thank you very much", Mr. Trump replied. What's unclear is whether that helps or hurts the president with his political problems. You can review the members of the cabinet yourself below.
