That includes determining if a secure place has been established at Mar-a-Lago.

The failure of the American Health Care Act saw populist websites like Breitbart and Lifezette showing a willingness to be critical of the president even as they reserved their heaviest firepower for House Speaker Paul Ryan and establishment Republicans.

Trump's first visit to a golf course since becoming President was on February 4 at the Trump International Golf Club in Florida.

He's expected back soon.

In an embarrassment for Trump, who had campaigned for the White House on what he said were his skills as a dealmaker, the healthcare bill was pulled on Friday from the floor of the House of Representatives because it failed to draw enough support from within Trump's own Republican Party. Apparently the Donald prefers his glitzy Florida resort to the presidential retreat in Maryland. However, Trump is sticking with the former, while also adding more flag stands around the area.

Steve Bannon, Trump's senior adviser, said it's not Priebus' grim - and ultimately inaccurate - warning that stuck with the president. "For about 30 minutes".

With a Republican controlled Congress, the bill obviously faces a tremendous headwind, but it would be naive to believe that even if defeated, the Democrats would quell their requests of action from the Trump administration.

On March 18, The Washington Post's Philip Rucker and Robert Costa reported on the unexpected influence of a "coterie of ascendant Manhattan business figures" around Trump aligned with son-in-law Jared Kushner: Gary Cohn and Dina Powell, formerly of Goldman Sachs, and two other businessmen recruited by Kushner, Chris Liddell and Reed Cordish. Beyond Vice President Mike Pence, he represents the president's most direct link to the traditional underpinnings of the Republican Party and is the buffer between the fiery nationalists and the more liberal New Yorkers who also occupy top White House jobs.

Whether the Trump administration wants to call Mar-a-Lago the Winter White House, the Southern White House, the Weekend White House or something else altogether, some Democrats are now demanding that they treat the parade of visitors coming and going from there like their predecessors largely treated the regular White House itself - by actually recording their names. The US would also be dirtier, as he slashes the EPA budget by 31 percent, and unhealthier, as unchecked pollution can lead to health emergencies, chronic health problems and premature death.

The bill comes as the latest in a slew of proposals from Democrats on Trump's personal finances and activities.

In other words, Trump is attempting to use his power as president to grab power for the 1% while destroying the 99%. This claim, which came from Fox News analyst Andrew Napolitano, was read aloud by White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer as though it were fact. "And so we're looking at those, where the fine balance is". The answer was no, "Mulvaney said Thursday morning on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."". "We want to know what privileges do they have?"

"If he changes, he could have a different presidency", Schumer said.

Why is the guy washing dishes in Baton Rouge paying for the president's Secret Service protection so that Melania can live comfortably in New York City?

"We have now a president", he says, "who it has become normal for him to be able to reap the profits from these hotels while still being president". And Democrats could abandon the effort if Republicans press too hard for the border wall or lard in too much extra money for the Pentagon, raising the specter of a shutdown showdown not far away.
