Earlier this afternoon our President participated in the posthumous Medal of Honor ceremony for Staff Sergeant Travis W. Atkins, United States Army. His son, Trevor, and parents represented him at the White House ceremony.
Staff Sergeant Travis W. Atkins will receive the Medal of Honor for his heroic actions of June 1, 2007, in support of IRAQI FREEDOM. While serving in Iraq with Company D, 2d Battalion, 14th Infantry Regiment, 2d Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division, Staff Sergeant Atkins engaged in hand-to hand combat with a suspected insurgent.
As he attempted to subdue the man, Staff Sergeant Atkins realized the insurgent was attempting to detonate a bomb strapped to his body. When he noticed the insurgent was about to trigger the suicide vest, Staff Sergeant Atkins tackled him, selflessly using his own body to shield his fellow soldiers from the imminent explosion. Staff Sergeant Atkins’ heroic actions, at the cost of his life, saved the lives of three of his teammates.
If you don’t have time for the entire ceremony, watch the clip below with the son, Michael, accepting the Medal of Honor on behalf of his father.

Commerce Secretary, Wilbur Ross, tweeted the following good news.
From the article linked above:
The U.S. trade deficit narrowed far more than expected in January, closing $8.8 billion to $51.1 billion and beating the consensus forecast.
The consensus forecast for the report released by U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) was $-57.3 billion, ranging from $59.0 billion to $55.0 billion.
In January, exports came in at $207.3 billion, $1.9 billion more than in December. Imports were $258.5 billion, $6.8 billion less than December.
The overall narrowing in the trade deficit for goods and services was fueled by a $8.2 billion decline in the goods deficit to $73.3 billion and an increase in the services surplus of $0.5 billion to $22.1 billion.
The deficit with China decreased $5.5 billion to $33.2 billion in January. Exports decreased $0.2 billion to $7.5 billion and imports decreased $5.7 billion to $40.8 billion.
This had a positive effect on the Atlanta Federal Reserve GDP NOW forecast released earlier today.

If these percentages amongst Blacks hold or go higher, you are talking about total annihilation in 2020!
From the article linked above:
Republicans are confident that President Trump in 2020 can pick up support among black voters and that this overwhelmingly Democratic bloc could even provide Trump the winning edge in key swing states.
“I can give an unqualified ‘yes’ on the idea that the president will be more popular on Election Day with blacks in 2020 than he was in 2016,” said Horace Cooper of Project 21 Black Leadership Network, a conservative public policy group. He pointed to the African-American unemployment rate, which reached a record low in 2018 of 5.9 percent, and the large number of African-Americans who no longer need food stamps under Trump.
And according to Cooper, a two or three percent shift in the black vote in certain states, such as Wisconsin, Florida and Texas, could make a big difference in the election — though Cooper predicted an increase of four to five percent of the black vote for Trump, which “would put between four and six more states in play that Trump didn’t carry last time.”
