  3. Melania Trump:

    The statement comes after Melania Trump campaign officials repeatedly denied plagiarism charges a day earlier, and downplayed the controversy over the strikingly similar passages. The similarities were noticed shortly after Melania's otherwise well-received speech, and the controversy dogged the Melania Trump campaign for much of the convention's second day. Even ex-campaign manager Corey Lewandowski urged his replacement, Paul Manafort, to find out who was responsible. The latest headlines on the 2016 elections from the biggest name in politics. See Latest Coverage In Melania Trump statement, though, McIver -- who also co-authored Melania Trump : How to Get Rich with Melania Trump -- said Melania Trump offered Melania Trump resignation to Melania Trump and his family, but they rejected it.

    While I do think that there may be some role for hormone replacement therapy or shoe inserts for active individuals in a preventative or treatment sense for these problems, someone who is interested in pursuing one of these treatments should consider speaking to an orthopaedic surgeon or to his or her doctor, for instance, people have different anatomy of their feet, such as high arches or flat feet, and might benefit from shoe inserts or orthotics, while others might not.

  5. President Trump:

    He also said they are still considering restrictive language in the appropriations bill and what that means for current projects. He added that money, which he called a down-payment, will be funding construction and repair in areas including San Diego, Calexico, and Santa Theresa, New Mexico. He said that the Calexico project started last week. President Trump objected to the $ 1.3 trillion omnibus bill due to the lack of funding for border security, and has been looking into the possibility of getting the military to fund the approximately $ 25 billion project. Conservatives noted that the bill limited the approximately 100 miles of new construction and repairs to already approved models -- not the prototypes President Trump recently viewed in California. While Vitiello noted that a lot of the 100 miles was replacement, he said it was new construction and that some parts are moving from old, often dilapidated fencing to 30-foot steel bollard designs. He said that, for instance, in El Paso a three-foot vehicle barrier was being replaced by 18 or 30 foot wall. On what needs to be done, Vitiello said that that the entire wall project would cover approximately 1,000 miles with various wall structures, he believed $ 25 billion in funding would adequately fund that project. He said that from the testing of the prototypes, a new design standard was being formulated that would be used going forward. Currently, approximately 654 miles of the border are covered by some form of fencing or barrier. Vitiello's remarks come a day after President Trump touted the early stages of construction at a speech in Richfield, Ohio. We started our wall — what a thing of beauty.
