"It is an agreed position between two countries and I think that is really important".
SESNO: He's talking about how carnage on American streets. He further demeaned the American political system by dismissing the change of party leadership and crowing that he was giving the country "back to you, the people". I subscribe strongly to the view that the first sign of a democracy breaking down will nearly always be the muzzling of its newspapers. What about the positive? And that is the marketplace of ideas.
Natalie Herbick (WJW, Cleveland): Secretary Spicer, thank you so much for this rare opportunity.
SESNO: It's what they do as journalists and how they have to sift through it all.
Klopp wants Liverpool to 'stay cool' and 'keep their nerve'
David Luiz reacts to Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Liverpool, and the spontaneity of his free-kick goal which opened up the match . On the balance of things, a draw is something that we should be happy with, even if it does not feel like that right away.
In one of the stranger Trump quotes of the last two weeks, the president praised abolitionist Frederick Douglass during a Black History Month event as "an example of somebody who has done an unbelievable job and is being recognised more and more, I notice". "And do you pledge never to knowingly say something that is not factual?" Spicer claimed that that Iran was being put "on notice" because of "Iran's additional hostile actions that it took against our Navy vessel are ones that we are very clear are not going to sit by and take". "We'll set up our trucks on Pennsylvania Avenue, we'll do the exact same stories every day", he said.
"You've already seen a lot of action on immigration and I think whether it's that or the spousal visas or other type of visas, I think there's an overall need to look at all of these programmes".
Spicer appeared to twice mispronounce Turnbull's name during the press conference, calling him "Mr Trunbull" or "Mr Trumbull". "It makes the message harder, people don't understand it, we're more likely to get it wrong or have it half baked and not fully formed". "But if we find that what Kellyanne Conway says is routinely or easily contradicted by Donald Trump, then that rationale disappears". The process, he suggested, becomes nothing more than political theater, in which Conway gets what she wants and viewers get nothing but confusion. But Trump ignored today's near-record low unemployment rate of 4.7 percent and the 11.3 million new jobs created over the last eight years. Spicer's "ban" ban hasn't itself been banned yet (which would result, amusingly, in a "ban" ban ban), but who knows what Trump will tweet out early next morning? He is engaged with them. "We already know that he is willing to target and marginalize at-risk communities for his perceived political gain".
