“When you hear the president out there on Fox, he is fudging the intelligence,” When you hear the [defense] secretary say, ‘Well, that wasn’t what the intelligence said, but that’s my personal belief,’ he is fudging. When Secretary Pompeo was on your show last week and made the claim that the intelligence analysis was that taking Soleimani out would improve our security and leaving him in would make us less safe, that is also fudging. That is not an intelligence conclusion, that’s Pompeo’s personal opinion.”
CBS News senior national security contributor, and former acting and deputy CIA director Michael Morell says, “Qassem Soleimani was an evil genius. He had a lot of American blood on his hands.

President Trump tweeted, “California leads the nation, by far, in both the number of homeless people, and the percentage increase in the homeless population – two terrible stats.

“This president has gotten the border down 65 percent… on his own, and at the same time, you’ve got the Democratic Party throwing out more enticements,” he continued. “Do they think that’s gonna help the border?” he added. “When you say, ‘I want to abolish ICE, we want to end immigration detention, we want to give you free health care…’ when you throw these enticements out, more people are going to come to this country illegally,” Homan reiterated.
