These efforts are largely familiar by now: He counts job gains from the Obama era as his own, rebrands his predecessor's veterans health care initiative as a Trump achievement, attributes auto factory expansion long in the making to his leadership, and hails a Republican rescue of health care that has not materialized. But there was a new one on Thursday night. "We have some breaking news!" he said. "Can you handle it? I don't think you can handle it." He then declared that after decades of failure by lawmakers to get money to clean up the Great Lakes, he was coming ahead with $300 million for that effort. The crowd roared.

A look at his recent rhetoric: MIGRANT CHILDREN TRUMP, on the care of migrant children … [Read more...] about AP FACT CHECK: Trump’s relentless drive to be given credit
Maybe you’ve heard the warning: The country is beset by a menace. A fringe conservative minority is holding Congress hostage, extracting radical policy concessions over the will of the majority. And it’s leading the nation to fiscal, environmental and moral ruin.

The private-jet start-up was offering Galvez its top-of-the-line "sophisticated membership," which included unlimited, free private-jet flights and the chance to bring a guest. The membership usually cost $50,000 a year, but JetSmarter told Galvez that if he acted now, he could get three years for $97,500, which he accepted.
