Our President had a jammed packed day today. He first started by hosting PM Netanyahu of Israel.
Included with this visit was an executive proclamation supporting Israel’s right to stable government over the Golan Heights.
Following the bilateral meeting, the two leaders held a short press availability in the Oval Office.

Oval Office- 12:23 P.M. EDT – PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, thank you very much. It’s an honor to have Prime Minister Netanyahu in the Oval Office. We’ve had numerous great meetings, and we talk usually about trade and military and lots of things.
But today, I think we’re talking about — more than anything else, we’re celebrating the Golan Heights. It’s something that I’ve been hearing about for many years, from many people. I’ve been studying for years.
And this should have been done, I would say, numerous Presidents ago. But for some reason, they didn’t do it, and I’m very honored to have done it.
So I just want to say, Bibi, it’s an honor to have you at the Oval Office. Thank you.
PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU: Thank you. May I say that I’ve been here many, many, many times. I’ve been around.
PRESIDENT TRUMP: You have.
PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU: And I’ve met many friends of Israel in this office. But as I said in the other room, just now, in a day of history, we have never had a greater friend than President Trump.
And I think there is a unique bond between our countries, between our administrations, between the two of us. There has been no greater bond than that. It serves the interests of Israel in ways that I cannot begin to describe because not everything that the President and I talk about can be shared with the public.
And I think that, in many ways, the President knows and the United States knows that America has no better friend than Israel. We are willing to fight for our common values. We’re willing to fight. You have an ally that is willing to take up arms in defense of liberty, in defense of our land, our people, and our common values.
We admire America, and we’re grateful to you. Thank you, Mr. President.
PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you very much.
Q Mr. President, so did this turn out to not be a witch hunt after all? Do you think Robert Mueller did a fair investigation?
PRESIDENT TRUMP: It’s lasted a long time. We’re glad it’s over. It’s 100 percent the way it should have been. I wish it could have gone a lot sooner, a lot quicker. There are a lot of people out there that have done some very, very evil things, very bad things. I would say treasonous things against our country.
And hopefully people that have done such harm to our country — we’ve gone through a period of really bad things happening — those people will certainly be looked at. I have been looking at them for a long time. And I’m saying, “Why haven’t they been looked at?” They lied to Congress. Many of them — you know who they are — they’ve done so many evil things.
I will tell you, I love this country. I love this country as much as I can love anything: my family, my country, my God. But what they did, it was a false narrative. It was — it was a terrible thing.
We can never let this happen to another President again. I can tell you that. I say it very strongly. Very few people I know could have handled it. We can never, ever let this happen to another President again.
Thank you all very much. I appreciate it. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Thank you very much.
Q Do you want the report to be completely released?
PRESIDENT TRUMP: Up the Attorney General, but it wouldn’t bother me at all. Up to the Attorney General. Wouldn’t bother me at all.
Q Any news on pardons? Are you thinking about pardoning anyone, sir?
PRESIDENT TRUMP: No, I haven’t. I haven’t thought about it.
He also hosted the Stanley Cup Champions, Washington Capitals.
In other news, the Southern District of New York (SDNY) announced criminal charges against the Creepy Porn Lawyer and CNN favorite, Michael Avenatti for attempting to extract more than $20 million in payments from Nike Corp, by threatening to use his ability to garner publicity to inflict substantial financial and reputational harm on the company if his demands were not met.
The SDNY counts against Avenatti include conspiracy to transmit interstate communications with intent to extort, conspiracy to commit extortion and more.
Shortly afterwards U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles alleged in a separate criminal complaint that Michael Avenatti embezzled a client’s money to pay his own expenses and cover debts—including for his law firm and coffee business—and defrauded a bank using phony tax returns.
He faces up to 50 years in prison if convicted in New York and Los Angeles.
Don Jr. had a blast destroying Avenatti on Twitter today. He tweeted and retweeted the following:
Tomorrow another nominee will be confirmed onto the 9th Circuit!
Two additional 9th Circuit nominees as well as a three Texas District Court nominees and two US Marshal nominees will be moving out of the Judiciary Committee next week and onto the Senate floor the week after for confirmation.
Democrats, RINOs, MSM, CoC etc. are in serious trouble based on the results of a poll (Hill-HarrisX) put out before the Mueller report was shared with the general public.
What an absolutely incredible day! Winning, Winning and some more Winning.
