Man in 'border wall suit' tells story of meeting Trump: 'He's not like any other politician'
By David Montanaro | Fox News
Blake Marnell speaks on 'Fox & Friends' about being invited on stage by the president and the positive reception he got afterwards.
A man who wore a "border wall suit" to President Trump's Pennsylvania rally said getting to meet the president was like an "out-of-body experience" and he never expected it to happen.
Trump had some fun during his rally in Montoursville Monday night when he spotted Blake Marnell wearing a brown suit and tie with a brick wall pattern and a Make America Great again hat.
The president pointed to Marnell as he was boasting about 500 miles of wall that will be built by the end of next year, which prompted the signature "Build the wall" chant.
Marnell said on "Fox & Friends" Wednesday that when he traveled to the rally with the unique garb, he was hoping the president would see him in the crowd and maybe give him a "thumbs-up" sign.
TRUMP: BARR WILL LOOK AT 'BIG' UKRAINE-CLINTON COLLUSION ALLEGATIONS
"Can we get him up here?" Trump asked. "Get him up here! Look at this guy!"
The crowd cheered as Marnell appeared on stage and shook the president's hand.
"Now we know who he's voting for," Trump joked.
Marnell said "it was like an out-body-experience" and he told Trump that he is from San Diego and "we need the wall."
"It was just like greeting an old friend you've known for a long time. I couldn't see that happening in any other country in the world," he said, adding that the episode shows how Trump "connects with people."
"He's so genuine. He's not like any other politician and that's a huge part of why he's in office."
Pretty sure they already have a wall in San Diego.
Who’s that guy?
Trump supporters already lining up for campaign kickoff more than 40 hours before rally
By Andrew O'Reilly | Fox News
Supporters of President Trump already have started lining up outside Orlando’s Amway Center for the president’s official re-election campaign kickoff rally – more than 40 hours before the event is scheduled to start.
In a scene befitting a "Star Wars" premiere or new iPhone launch, Orlando-area media were reporting that the first Trump supporters began camping outside the arena as early as 2:30 a.m. Monday for Trump’s rally slated to start at 8 p.m. on Tuesday.
"There's going to be a bunch of people, and it's going to be pretty intense," Gary Beck, who was the first person in line on Monday morning, told local media. "The electricity is going to be high. It's time for America to get back on its feet and be made better than it's ever been before."
The president tweeted on Monday morning that his campaign has received more than 100,000 ticket requests for the event in an arena that only holds 20,000 people.
“Big Rally tomorrow night in Orlando, Florida, looks to be setting records,” Trump tweeted. “Our Country is doing great, far beyond what the haters & losers thought possible - and it will only get better!”
And the Trump campaign on Monday afternoon highlighted the reports of early birds lining up for the rally.
"I’ve seen it first-hand. These amazing supporters truly do camp out from Orlando, FL to 40-degree Green Bay, WI," Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany tweeted, in response to an apparent supporter saying they flew from Boston to Orlando for the event and already are seeing an "amazing" number of people "lined up" with tents.
This is Trump’s first visit to Orlando since 2016 when he came to the city as part of his “Thank You Tour” following his election. He last visited the broader Orlando area last October to speak at the International Association of Chiefs of Police at the Orange County Convention Center.
Florida played a key role in helping Trump win the White House in 2016 and the Sunshine State was one of the few bright spots for Republicans in the 2018 midterm elections. The GOP is hoping to carry the state once again in 2020.
The polls show Trump losing to all of the leading Democrats and losing to Biden by double digits. Looks bad for the home team.
But cheer up. Trump has fired his pollsters and the new ones will soon show him winning.
Trump campaign rakes in stunning $25M in single day for re-election launch
By Brooke Singman | Fox News
President Trump's campaign operation raised a whopping $24.8 million in less than 24 hours amid his 2020 re-election launch in Florida on Tuesday — a figure that blows past what any of the Democratic candidates raised in the entire first quarter.
“@realDonaldTrump has raised a record breaking $24.8M in less than 24 hours for his re-election. The enthusiasm across the country for this President is unmatched and unlike anything we’ve ever seen! #trump2020 #KeepAmericaGreat,” Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel tweeted early Wednesday morning.
The president tweeted "THANK YOU!" in response.
TRUMP LAUNCHES CAMPAIGN MACHINE WITH MASSIVE WAR CHEST
According to an RNC spokesman, the fundraising -- at a clip of $1 million an hour -- came through the Trump re-election campaign and joint-fundraising committees Trump Victory and Trump MAGAC (Make America Great Again Committee). A Trump campaign official told Fox News on Wednesday that the campaign raised more than $14 million, and that the joint-fundraising committees raised more than $10 million.
Minutes later, RNC Communications Director Michael Ahrens tweeted: “For those keeping score, that’s more than the 5 highest polling Democrats—combined.”
Ahrens was referring to the top five polling Democratic candidates' fundraising during the 24 hours after they announced their presidential bids. Among them, former Vice President Joe Biden raked in $6.3 million and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., brought in $5.9 million, with the others raising significantly less than that.
But none of the candidates hit $20 million even in the first quarter.
Sanders brought in $18.2 million in the first 41 days of his campaign; Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., brought in $12 million during the first three months of this year; former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas raised $9.4 million; and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg raised $7.1 million.
Democratic presidential primary front-runner Biden, who announced after the first quarter, hinted this week at raising roughly $20 million so far, as he tours the fundraising circuit with a series of top-dollar events.
But the Trump campaign re-launch surpassed that in 24 hours, counting various fundraising committees, coinciding with his energetic rally in Orlando to a packed arena crowd.
The fundraising numbers underscore what has, since before the Democratic candidates even started campaigning, been a huge cash advantage for the incumbent. Going into Trump’s rally on Tuesday, the re-election campaign had $40.8 million in cash-on-hand at the start of second-quarter fundraising on April 1. Combined with the RNC’s joint fundraising committees, they have a combined $82 million cash-on-hand for the second quarter.
"Our country is soaring to incredible new heights," Trump said Tuesday night, to loud applause. "Our economy is the envy of the world, perhaps the greatest economy we've had in the history of our country, and as long as you keep this team in place -- we have a tremendous way to go -- our future has never, ever looked brighter or sharper."
Trump continued: "The fact is, the American Dream is back. It's bigger, and better, and stronger than ever before."
Depends on whom you poll:
New poll offers Trump dose of good news, amid 2020 campaign launch
By Paul Steinhauser | Fox News
Hours after he formally kicked off his 2020 re-election campaign, a new national poll offers some encouraging numbers for President Trump.
The release Wednesday of a Suffolk University survey for USA Today comes a day after another poll in the crucial presidential battleground state of Florida showed the president trailing -- and as several other polls have similarly shown high-profile Democratic candidates ahead.
But the USA Today/Suffolk University survey showed 49 percent of Americans approving of the job Trump’s doing as president, with 48 percent giving him a thumbs down.
And in the new survey, 49 percent of voters predicted Trump would win re-election, with 38 percent pointing to a victory by the eventual Democratic presidential nominee. Further, the poll indicated that if the November 2020 general election were held today, the president would narrowly edge an unnamed Democratic nominee -- 40-37 percent, with 9 percent supporting an unnamed third-party candidate and 14 percent undecided.
Trump’s re-election campaign and related committees raised an eye-popping $24.8 million in the 24 hours surrounding the president’s campaign kick-off, according to Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel.
“@realDonaldTrump has raised a record breaking $24.8M in less than 24 hours for his re-election. The enthusiasm across the country for this President is unmatched and unlike anything we’ve ever seen! #trump2020 #KeepAmericaGreat,” McDaniel tweeted early Wednesday morning.
The USA Today/Suffolk University poll was conducted June 11-15, with 1,000 registered voters nationwide questioned by live telephone operators. The overall sampling error was plus or minus 3 percentage points.
Surprised the Russians only dropped $24.8M on him. Cheap bastard comrades.
Those Russian oligarchs are filthy rich.
You do know that Trump has paid off pollsters for some inflated numbers in the past, don't you? Nah, he wouldn't do it again.
Tommy Hicks: Trump's legacy? Promises made and promises kept
By Tommy Hicks | Fox News
Americans across the country watched Tuesday night as President Trump launched his re-election campaign. As we reflect on the day he entered the 2016 race four years ago, we celebrate an election that liberal media once deemed impossible.
America’s silent majority spoke up and put a champion in the White House. We are ready to do it again next year based on this president’s remarkable record of accomplishments.
Take today’s economy, for example. Our country has added over 6 million new jobs since President Trump’s election. GDP growth has far exceeded expectations and wages continue to rise. Our nation’s unemployment rate is at 3.6 percent, the lowest since 1969 – with unemployment for women, African-Americans and Hispanic-Americans all reaching record lows under this administration.
Texans have seen the impact of today’s booming economy firsthand. Unemployment in our state has dropped from 4.8 percent to 3.7 percent, the lowest in four decades. We have nearly 600,000 new jobs since this president took office, including over 62,000 manufacturing jobs. This is a remarkable comeback, considering we lost over 55,400 manufacturing jobs under former President Obama.
ANDY PUZDER: TRUMP POLICIES SPARKING INCREDIBLE ECONOMIC BOOM — DEMS WRONG TO GIVE OBAMA CREDIT
This president secured once-in-a-generation tax cuts, increasing take-home pay for the vast majority of middle-class Americans. These tax cuts helped the average Texan save over $1,300 and added nearly 29,000 jobs across our state last year. This, in addition to rapid deregulation and support for our largest industries – oil, agriculture, and manufacturing – have made Texas more prosperous than ever before.
As we celebrate the launch of President Trump’s re-election campaign, voters will celebrate the remarkable results he has delivered for our communities – and they will remember Democrats’ refusal to work with the administration on the issues that matter.
President Trump’s victories for America go well beyond the economy. Thanks to this administration’s patient-focused policies, health care costs are falling and prescription drug prices are on the decline for the first time in 46 years.
Compare this to the costly, socialist proposals of radical Democrats. If Sen. Bernie Sanders or former Vice President Joe Biden got their way, we’d get a $32 trillion “Medicare-for-all” system, which would place an astronomical burden on taxpayers and kick close to 15 million Texans off our health insurance plans.
Meanwhile, the Trump administration is protecting American workers, industries, and intellectual property by pursuing fair and reciprocal trade deals and holding our trading partners accountable.
The U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, for instance, will pump $34 billion into the automotive industry and create 176,000 new manufacturing jobs. At the same time, President Trump has authorized billions of dollars in support of American agriculture, making sure our farmers and ranchers come first.
President Trump continues to make border security a priority, recognizing the devastating consequences of drug and human trafficking through our porous southern border. He promised us he would build a wall to keep our communities safe, and construction is well under way.
By the end of this year, nearly 200 miles of new border wall are expected to be completed. This progress is happening despite an unprecedented level of obstruction from congressional Democrats, who have refused to work with this administration on fixing the problems at the border, and have instead spent their time endlessly investigating our president.
Let’s not forget the way President Trump has reshaped the federal judiciary, appointing record numbers of conservative judges to our nation’s courts. We have two new Supreme Court justices on the bench, who dutifully uphold the Constitution and defend the rule of law.
In Texas, five new judges have been confirmed on the 5th Circuit Court and eight more in district courts throughout the state.
These are a few of countless promises made, promises kept by a champion for the American people. What’s more, this is just the beginning. As we celebrate the launch of President Trump’s re-election campaign, voters will celebrate the remarkable results he has delivered for our communities – and they will remember Democrats’ refusal to work with the administration on the issues that matter.
In 2020, we will make our voices heard and re-elect the leader who will fulfill his promise to Keep America Great: President Donald Trump.

Some asylum-seekers should be halted at border, new USCIS acting director says in memo to staff: report
By Dom Calicchio | Fox News
President Trump’s recent appointee to head U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is apparently wasting little time in making changes at the agency.
According to a report, USCIS Acting Director Ken Cuccinelli sent an email to staffers Tuesday, instructing asylum officers to halt some asylum efforts during initial screenings at U.S. border entry points.
"Asylum officers, you took an oath to support and defend the constitution of the United States,” Cuccinelli wrote, according to BuzzFeed News. “As a public servant your role as an asylum officer requires faithful application of the law.
IMMIGRANTS' SPONSORS TO BE ON HOOK FOR 'EVERY DOLLAR' IF NEW ARRIVALS END UP ON DOLE, NEW TRUMP APPOINTEE WARNS
Ken Cuccinelli speaks at a news conference during his time as Virginia attorney general, in Richmond, May 10, 2011. (Associated Press)
“Therefore,” the email continued, “USCIS must, in full compliance with the law, make sure we are properly screening individuals who claim fear but nevertheless do not have a significant possibility of receiving a grant of asylum or another form of protection available under our nation’s laws.”
Cuccinelli reminded the officers that they are empowered to combat “frivolous claims” of asylum and should “ensure that [they] are upholding our nation’s laws by only making positive credible fear determinations in cases that have a significant possibility of success,” the report said.
Last week, Cuccinelli’s office issued a news release announcing that those who sponsor legal immigrants to the United States will be on the hook “for every dollar” if those immigrants end up receiving welfare funds or other public support instead of earning a living and paying taxes.
According to Cuccinelli, 50, a New Jersey native and a former state attorney general in Virginia, all federal agencies dealing with immigration issues will be working to update or initiate procedures and regulations to make sure that immigrants who are ineligible for public benefits do not receive them, in accordance with a May 23 directive from the president.
“The President has made it a priority to ensure that every individual who seeks to come to the United States is self-sufficient, temporarily or permanently,” Cuccinelli wrote. “The principle of self-sufficiency has been enshrined in our immigration laws since the 1800s, and we as an agency must ensure that immigrants who become part of this great country abide by this principle.”
Cuccinelli took over at USCIS on June 10, coming to the job with a reputation as a hardliner on immigration issues. For example, he has been an advocate for denying citizenship to American-born children of parents living in the U.S. illegally and for limiting in-state tuition at public universities to citizens or legal residents.
He replaced Lee Francis Cissna, who reportedly had lost President Trump’s confidence.
I keep seeing replies that I'm going to assume support the view that Trump will get two terms. I'm going to agree that Trump will get two life terms for treason.
Infrastructure, the Wall, the halt to aggression from North Korea, the repeal of Obama Care, the halt to Iran's development of an atomic bomb, the return of all undocumented Latinos and Latinas to their countries of origin, the approval rating above 50%, more legislation than any other President in our country's history, staying in the White House because he'll be too busy working and won't want to play any golf, returning lots of jobs to the U.S. while not allowing jobs to go overseas, the return of coal mining jobs . Promises made, promises kept.
Separate names with a comma.
