Trump said at his rally last night that he "saw the other day" that the Democrats "just gave out a tremendous contract" for a "massive wall" around their 2020 convention site in Milwaukee. The Democratic National Committee tells me that is not true and that there is no big wall.
Per pool, here's Trump on the death of Cokie Roberts: “I never met her. She never treated me nicely. But I would like to wish her family well. She was a professional and I respect professionals...Never treated me well, but I certainly respect her as a professional.”
Postscript: The late William "Corn Pop" Morris's son, Leon Morris, 54, reached out to me today. He said he has no problem at all with Biden telling the story from the 60s, but he doesn't want people to think of his dad as a bad guy based on something in the distant past.
Per data from Bill Frischling of the indispensable Trump-tracking website @FactbaseFeed, tonight's 95-minute speech was the second-longest of Trump's presidency, behind only the CPAC epic. #2, #3, #4 and #5 have come in the last two months, 9 of the top 10 this year.
Trump is going to California tomorrow from NM. He's doing a fundraiser in Palo Alto and a fundraiser in Beverly Hills, then staying overnight somewhere in Los Angeles. There are no public events on his schedule, though there'll be pool coverage of his arrivals and departures.
Trump said they are doing "some very strong studies" on who is responsible for the attacks on Saudi oil facilities, but it looks like Iran is responsible. He said he doesn't want war but no country is more prepared for war, though that wasn't the case before he took office.
The US did not become the #1 energy producer because of Trump; it happened under Obama in 2012. US is not a net energy exporter; the EIA predicts it will happen by next year. US imported 30 million barrels per month from the Gulf as of June; that number has fallen under Trump.
Pompeo, Tuesday: "The president has made very clear he is prepared to meet with no preconditions." Trump, Sunday: "The Fake News is saying that I am willing to meet with Iran, 'No Conditions.' That is an incorrect statement (as usual!)."
Biden is facing skepticism for a story he has told about a 1960s confrontation at a Wilmington, Delaware pool with a guy named Corn Pop -- partly because of the name Corn Pop. Here's an obituary for Wilmington's William L. "CornPop" Morris, who died at 73 in 2016. (Thread)
1) The “we are with you the entire way” quote is from Kevin McCarthy, obviously not the Post itself. 2) This is the “coalesced” sentence: “Republicans, meanwhile, have largely coalesced around Trump, but it’s far from clear that the president has a winning message for 2020.”
For the record since there have been a bunch of wrong articles on this: Trump's slip wasn't calling Mike Pence "Mike Pounce." He was listing people who attended an ethanol meeting and called South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds "Mike Pounds." It was a Rounds slip, not a Pence slip.
Trump keeps saying he ended Obama's "cruel war on American energy" and then boasting that the US is "now" #1 in world energy production. The US became #1 under...Obama, in 2012 (https://www.eia.gov/todayinenergy/detail.php?id=26352). It's crude oil in which it became #1 under Trump.
Trump on what he's learned about politics from watching how he says Democrats behave: "You can say something one day that’s just absolutely insane like they’re saying, and then, about two weeks later, say the exact opposite. And nobody will ever even call you on it."
