The Day Ahead
President Donald J. Trump will visit the Morrelly Homeland Security Center in Bethpage, New York, for a roundtable on immigration and MS-13. Watch live at 2:00 p.m. ET.
Ending taxpayer support of the abortion industry
President Trump spoke at Susan B. Anthony List's 11th Annual Campaign for Life Gala last night. Susan B. Anthony List is the Nation's largest pro-life organization with more than 600,000 members. "When I ran for office, I pledged to stand for life. And as President, that's exactly what I've done," President Trump told the group last night.
The Trump Administration is preserving the sanctity of life with policies that end taxpayer support of the abortion industry. Regulations proposed this week from the Department of Health and Human Services would require clear physical and financial divisions between programs that receive Title X family planning funding and programs that perform or support abortion as family planning.
The President's defense of American values includes pro-life priorities—and much more. In defense of religious liberty, the Administration issued conscience regulations that protect healthcare providers such as the Little Sisters of the Poor from having to choose between violating their moral beliefs or shutting their doors.
President Trump's 'dramatic and positive' achievement
South Korean President Jae-in Moon visited the White House yesterday, speaking with President Trump about recent developments in North Korea. The US-South Korea bilateral comes weeks before President Trump's planned summit with Kim Jong Un in Singapore.
"President Trump has been able to achieve this dramatic and positive change that you see right now," President Moon said. "There have been many agreements between the United States and North Korea previously, but this will be the first time that there will be an agreement between the leaders."
President Trump emphasized that next month's summit is contingent on North Korea's willingness to engage on key issues, including denuclearization. "There are certain conditions that we want, and I think we'll get those conditions. And if we don't, we don't have the meeting," President Trump said. "It has a chance to be a great, great meeting for North Korea and a great meeting for the world."
