Inside Trump (Jun 28th, 2019)

1. President Trump jokingly told Russia president Vladimir Putin not to interfere in the 2020 presidential elections. “Don’t meddle in the election, president,” Trump told Putin, wagging his finger at him while at the G-20 summit in Japan. The exchange came after a reporter asked if Trump would warn Russia against interfering in 2020. It was the first meeting between the two leaders since the release of the Mueller report. Trump arrived in Japan on June 27 for the annual summit where, in addition to meeting with Putin, he met with Germany’s Angela Merkel. While there, the president will also discuss a trade deal with Chinese President Xi Jinping, meet with Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. - ABC NEWS

2. Democratic leaders in the House of Representatives yielded to President Trump to pass a bipartisan, Senate-drafted $4.6 billion humanitarian relief package for migrants. The bill excludes extra protections for migrant children, which liberal leaders had demanded. “In order to get resources to the children fastest, we will reluctantly pass the Senate bill," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi explained. Trump has shown support for the bill and it is believed he will sign it. “A great job done by all!" he tweeted, after learning the bill had passed. - THE NEW YORK TIMES

3. The Supreme Court blocked the Trump administration's attempt to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census. Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court's liberals in rejecting the proposal. In response, Trump tweeted he has asked lawyers if it's possible to delay the census so the administration can try to add the question again. In a separate decision, the Supreme Court also ruled that the Constitution does not forbid partisan gerrymandering. - BBC

4. The president criticized Democratic presidential candidates debating each other on June 27 after all pledged to champion health care plans covering undocumented immigrants. "How about taking care of American Citizens first!?" Trump tweeted from the G-20 summit in Japan. "That’s the end of that race!" Later, Trump also mocked former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders, claiming he heard the debates did not go well for "Sleepy Joe" and "Crazy Bernie." - BUSINESS INSIDER

5. The Supreme Court has agreed to decide whether or not Trump can end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals [DACA] program implemented during the Obama-era. The court will determine whether Trump administration acted lawfully and followed the Administrative Procedure Act in his bid to end DACA in the next term. Also known as the "Dreamers" program, DACA protects mostly young adult immigrants brought to the US as children from deportation and gives them work permits. - REUTERS

6. Two friends of magazine columnist E. Jean Carroll have come forward on-the-record to confirm her rape accusations against President Trump. Carol Martin and Lisa Birnbach told the New York Times what Carroll was like in the days after the alleged assault 20 years ago. “It was horrible,” Birnbach said. “We fought, and I said, ‘Let’s go to the police.’  ‘No.’ ‘Come to my house.’ ‘No.’” Trump has previously denied the accusations. - ELLE
