1. They got caught spying on my campaign and then called it an investigation. Bad!
The New York Times reported that based on the President’s own behavior shortly after he fired FBI Director James Comey, added with the FBI already investigating four Trump campaign members, they felt they had no other choice, but to investigation if President Trump was/is a threat to National Security.
2. Just announced that Veterans unemployment has reached an 18 year low, really good news for our Vets and their families.
The Hill reported on Tuesday morning that, “Multiple news outlets reported that veterans’ unemployment dropped to 3.5 percent overall in 2018, the lowest figure since 2000.”

3. A big win!
The Tennessean reports that Volkswagen has chosen its “Chattanooga manufacturing plant,” as the location that will build the company’s “first electric vehicle facility in North America.
The article explains this will bring 1,000 jobs to Tennessee and the company hopes to roll out the first Volkswagen Electric vehicle from the Chattanooga branch in 2022.
4. Tell Nancy and Chuck that a drone flying around will not stop them. Only a Wall will work.
As a Reminder: The last caravan that reached America, did so at a port of entry, which already has walls, fences, and border patrol agents.
5. Polls are now showing that people are beginning to understand the Humanitarian Crisis and Crime at the Border….
As the News Blender reported on Monday, based on polling the majority of those polled, view the shutdown as President Trump’s responsibility.
A CNN poll shows that for January 10-11th, 2019, 39 percent favor a wall along the entire border with Mexico, while 56 percent disapprove a wall across the entire border with Mexico. Five percent had no opinion.
6. Why is Nancy Pelosi getting paid when people who are working are not?
Opinion: All Senators and Congress members are being paid, while those responsible for our border security are not being paid, most of those people are currently working without pay.
As the Washington Post reported key Trump appointees were “poised to receive annual raises of about $10,000 a year.” This included the Vice President, Mike Pence, who is reportedly declining the pay raise.
During President Trump’s Rose Garden press conference he was asked about the raise, he told reporters that he didn’t believe his cabinet was aware of the raises.
Trump preposterously claims that he doesn't think his cabinet members are even aware they're getting a big raise tomorrow, won't commit to asking them to forego it while the government shutdown is ongoing. #DrainTheSwamp pic.twitter.com/1CzlWf10c8— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) January 4, 2019

8. Because of the Shutdown I served them massive amounts of Fast Food (I paid), over 1000 hamburgers etc.
On Monday President Trump hosted the College Football Champ’s the Clemson Tigers. He served the players fast food. Early on Tuesday the President issued the same tweet only Hamburgers was spelled “hamberders.”
It took 3 hours for the tweet to be deleted and the error corrected.
