Extra protection sought for certain lawmakers after Trump’s comments about ‘squad’

EXCLUSIVE – House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie G. Thompson, D-Miss., was seeking extra protection for members of Congress on Monday after President Trump’s tweets and remarks about the progressive “squad.”

Trump’s remarks apparently were directed at four congresswomen: Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan. All are American citizens and three of the four were born in the U.S.

Far from backing down, Trump on Monday dug in on comments he had initially made a day earlier on Twitter that if lawmakers “hate our country,” they can go back to their “broken and crime-infested” countries.

“If you’re not happy in the U.S., if you’re complaining all the time, you can leave, you can leave right now,” he said.

In the letter for House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving and Senate Sergeant at Arms Michael Stenger, Thompson argued that the Capitol Police Board should meet to “analyze the current threat environment and set thresholds for enhanced safety of Members.”

Thompson asked for a meeting within 48 hours and a classified readout of the meeting.

The letter was addressed to Stenger because he has headed the Capitol Police Board this year.

Thompson said security officials should set “thresholds for enhanced security for certain targeted Members, and evaluate threat streams with law enforcement partners in Member districts. Being proactive in this instance is vital to the safety of not only these targeted Members, but all Members of Congress.”

Fox News has been told that despite Thompson’s pleas, other lawmakers have faced more serious threats than members of the squad ahead of Trump’s tweets.

Karl Rove: Beto O’Rourke’s reparations push could exacerbate ‘racial divide’

Republican strategist Karl Rove ripped Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke‘s for his position on reparations and his revelation that he and his wife are descended from slave owners.

“I think it trivializes the issue. I mean … you feel only urgent about this because in the 1850s, 160 years ago, his forbears had two slaves. You know, you either feel that we ought to make reparations … for slavery because … you feel it’s necessary and a moral obligation, or not,” Rove said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum” on Monday.

AS DEMOCRATS DEBATE REPARATIONS FOR SLAVERY, POLLS SUGGEST AMERICANS ARE NOT CONVINCED

O’Rourke revealed on Twitter on Sunday that he and his wife, Amy, are both descended from slave owners.

The Democratic presidential hopeful also posted an article on Medium where he promised to continue to support reparations, “beginning with an important national conversation on slavery and racial injustice.”

Rove said: “There are just so many ways that this issue will simply cause greater racial division in this country and divide us more deeply. And I don’t think … Robert Francis O’Rourke’s approach to this helps at all.”

Peter Thiel tells Tucker Carlson which 2020 Dem has him ‘most scared’

Westlake Legal Group Carlson-Thiel_FOX Peter Thiel tells Tucker Carlson which 2020 Dem has him ‘most scared' fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/us/economy fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/tech fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 6b9df05f-b846-57f4-97e6-e404f2615947

Billionaire Silicon Valley investor Peter Thiel says there is one Democratic presidential candidate who makes him most concerned ahead of the 2020 elections.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is the only Democratic candidate campaigning on the economy, while others are mired in discussions about identity politics, Thiel said Monday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“I’m most scared by Elizabeth Warren,” he said.

“I think she’s the one who’s actually talking about the economy, which is the only thing that I think matters by far the most.”

Thiel, who addressed the 2016 Republican National Convention as its first openly gay speaker, also said he found the other nearly two dozen Democratic primary contenders uninspiring.

PETER THIEL SAYS FBI, CIA SHOULD INVESTIGATE IF CHINESE INTELLIGENCE INFILTRATED GOOGLE: REPORT

“I think almost all the others are equally unimpressive in the sense that it’s all identity politics of one flavor or another,” he said.

“I wouldn’t want to rank how unimpressive they are, since that would be forcing me to rank the different identities and which one’s more privileged and more special, and that would be a dangerous thing to get into.”

Earlier in the interview, Thiel discussed how he called Sunday for the FBI and CIA to investigate whether Chinese intelligence had infiltrated Google.

Thiel made the comments during a speech at the National Conservatism Conference in Washington. He said the FBI and CIA needed to ask Google three questions to determine if the tech giant had been compromised by Chinese intelligence.

Speaking to Carlson, Thiel said artificial intelligence is something, “people talk about nonstop in Silicon Valley.”

“But they almost never talk about its dual use,” he said.

“If it’s real, if this is a real thing, it obviously can also be used by the military, it’ll be weaponized in all sorts of ways, and it’s an important national security question as to who has it.

“There’s this very peculiar background where Google is working with the Chinese on Communist government and not with the U.S. military; so the Project Maven decision was a decision not to work with A.I., with the U.S. military — but they’re working with the Communist Chinese.”

‘Rehab Addict’ star Nicole Curtis goes Instagram official with new boyfriend: ‘My man with the beard’

Nicole Curtis has a new love in her life.

On Sunday, the “Rehab Addict” star took to Instagram to share a photo of herself sitting on her new man’s lap while the pair shared a sweet kiss.

“New Jersey and my man with the beard …” the home renovation and design expert captioned the picture along with a heart emoji.

NICOLE CURTIS GETS CANDID ABOUT RETURNING TO HER HOOTERS ROOTS AND HER NEW HGTV SHOW 

Curtis, 42, also reportedly shared several photos on her Instagram Story of the pair getting ready for a night out, according to People magazine.

The DIY and HGTV star’s new romance comes after a years-long custody battle with her ex-boyfriend, Shane Maguire over the former couple’s 3-year-old son, Harper.

In October, Curtis — who is also mom to son Ethan from a previous relationship — and Maguire reached a settlement, agreeing they will share joint physical and legal custody.

“The only thing Nicole has prayed for is peace for her family,” a rep for Curtis told Fox News in a statement at the time. “Her children have always been her priority.”

Last month, Curtis revealed that after parting ways with DIY at the beginning of 2018, she will be returning to HGTV in the near future.

“So we’re coming back, which is really cool,” Curtis gushed to Fox News. “We’re ready, but it’s always at our pace and that’s the cool thing. Again, I’m very lucky to be able to do that. We’re excited. My fans have been asking every single day: ‘When are you coming back? When are you coming back?’ And now we finally have an answer: soon,'” Curtis shared, before clarifying it won’t be “too soon though.”

“It’s summer and we like to be home with our kids,” the mom of two explained.

Police suspect man killed New York girl he met on Instagram and shared photos of her body online

A man, 21, found seriously injured near the body of a 17-year-old girl is suspected of killing the teen and posting photos of her body on Instagram, where they’d first met digitally, police said Monday.

Investigators found the girl’s body Sunday outside a vehicle in Utica, along with the man; he was hospitalized but is expected to survive, police said.

The teen was identified as Bianca Devins, Utica Police Sgt. Michael Curley said. He identified Brandon Clark, 21, as the injured man and suspect in the slaying.

Clark was not immediately charged, and could not speak with officers while he was sedated in the hospital, reports said.

The girl’s family said in a statement to Fox News: “Bianca, age 17, was a talented artist, a loving sister, daughter, and cousin, and a wonderful young girl, taken from us all too soon. She is now looking down on us, as she joins her cat, Belle, in heaven.”

Police are investigating the case as a murder and attempted suicide, Lt. Bryan Coromato said, according to WNBC.

Utica Police said in a statement to Fox News: “With respect to their relationship, it was learned that the two had met on the social media platform Instagram approximately two months ago. They utilized this as a means of communication primarily, and their relationship progressed into a personally intimate one. They had spent time together, and were acquainted with each other’s families.”

Investigators believe the man posted pictures of the girl’s corpse on Instagram, where at least one was widely circulated, Coromato said.

Devins’ death sparked a wave of attention and disgust online over the pictures. Some Internet users urged others to stop circulating the images.

“Our thoughts go out to those affected by this tragic event. We are taking every measure to remove this content from our platforms,” Instagram spokeswoman Stephanie Otway told Fox News via email.

Instagram blocked the hashtag #yesjuliet for attempting to spread the image of the girl’s corpse.

Clark’s accounts on Facebook and Instagram were removed Monday, and Otway told Fox News that Instagram was in contact with law enforcement.

Lara Trump: ‘Frustrating’ to watch progressive Democrats ‘dump on our country’

Democrats‘ so-called progressive “squad” continues to critique America, which has rightfully led to friction with President Trump, according to 2020 campaign senior adviser Lara Trump.

Some of the policies advocated by the group — including calls to change border policies and abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) — are counterintuitive to what a representative of the American people should support, Trump claimed Monday on “The Story.”

“It’s very frustrating to see people who are supposed to represent our country, these congresswomen, dump on our country every single day — call for the abolishment of ice, call for open borders, go against everything that he’s doing,” she said.

“At a certain point, we’re all frustrated as Americans.

“We need to step back for a second and remember Donald Trump is a man who gave up his entire life because he loves this country so much and he wanted to fix it.”

Lara Trump also questioned the intentions of Reps. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

“Why are you representing people of this country if you dislike it so much?” she asked.

“His frustration is clear here,” she added of her father-in-law, the president.

STIREWALT: TRUMP’S OMAR, AOC COMMENTS LEADING PELOSI TO TRY TO ‘TRAP REPUBLICANS’

Members of the “squad” have feuded bitterly with top House Democrats in recent days, leading some observers to allege that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s attacks on the freshmen progressives have emboldened Trump.

But, leading up to Monday evening’s news conference, the weight of the party establishment was firmly behind the four members of Congress — united, with all hands on deck, in attacking Trump’s comments. Pelosi announced Monday the House would take up a resolution to condemn the president’s “xenophobic tweets.”

Just minutes before the representatives were set to take the stage, Trump invoked Omar’s infamous casual reference to the 9/11 terrorist attacks as an instance in which “some people did something” — and renewed his calls for anti-American individuals to leave the country.

“We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country,” Trump wrote. “If you are NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE!”

Trump added that some people “HATE our Country,” and are “anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, ‘some people did something.'”

Geraldo Rivera on Trump’s tweets: ‘I just hope it isn’t a glimpse at his soul’

Fox News correspondent-at-large Geraldo Rivera criticized President Trump Monday for his controversial tweets this Sunday saying he was “saddened” by the remarks and wished he would apologize.

“I was really saddened by what he said invoking the language of racism and xenophobia in describing these four women I thought it was very unnecessary,” Rivera said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

“The Democrats were doing a great job in destroying themselves and being divided and he united them gratuitously, I don’t know why he did it. I don’t know what he was thinking, it is unfortunate.”

Monday, Trump doubled down on his explosive tweets this weekend for progressive congresswomen to “go back” to where they came from and “come back and show us how it’s done,” rather than criticize the Trump administration. He also demanded they “apologize” for what he called their anti-American “hate.”

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., held a press conference Monday blasting the president for his comments and calling for his impeachment.

Rivera lamented how the president’s comments can justify criticism levied against him.

“You know when I defend him I do so against all these gratuitous attacks in the media. He has the worst press of any president in modern history and yet he does things like this that leaves himself open to the criticism that he is exactly what the people who hate him say he is and I feel it’s very unfortunate,” Rivera said.

Rivera, who appeared emotional and said he considered the president a friend, said he hopes the president actually doesn’t believe his own comments.

“I just hope it isn’t a glimpse at his soul. I just hope that he doesn’t really believe that every person of color comes from someplace else,” Rivera said.

As for the congresswomen, Trump directed his comments toward, and whether or not their past controversial comments justify the president’s criticism, Rivera argued they had a different standard than the president.

“They are radicals. They have a different role than the president of the United States. The leader of the free world…. he’s the person that activates the slogan of the United States of America. He’s the glue. He can’t be the divider,” Geraldo said.

Sean “Diddy” Combs is officially bringing the hit series, “Making the Band,” back to TV.

The 49-year-old music mogul took to social media on Monday to announce that the show — where he discovered groups including platinum-sellers Danity Kane — would return to MTV in 2020.

“Making the Band” made its debut on ABC in 2000 when Lou Pearlman, who managed the Backstreet Boys and ‘N Sync, launched the show and formed the boy band O-Town.

Diddy went on to revamp the show for MTV in 2002 and discovered the rap group Da Band. He also launched the careers of Day 26, Donnie Klang and Danity Kane — who released two No.1 albums under his Bad Boy Records — on the show.

Diddy went viral last week when he asked his social media followers if he should bring back the series.

President Trump emerged the victor after four freshmen Democratic lawmakers held a press conference responding to his criticisms of them, according to Jesse Watters.

The members of the so-called progressive “squad” continue to make extreme assertions about the president, which isn’t a good look for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Watters claimed Monday on “The Five.”

“Donald Trump won that press conference,” he said, moments after Reps. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. spoke on Capitol Hill.

“Nancy and ‘the squad’ lost — that was a terrible look. It seems like they want to victimize themselves even further. I don’t think that’s the way to go against President Trump.

“They’re saying he’s a white nationalist and he’s committing human rights violations… Obama actually deported more and also put people in cages.”

Watters also dismissed calls from Omar and Tlaib to remove Trump from office.

“They’re continuing to play the victim and continue to pout — and now they want to impeach him for tweeting,” he said.

Responding earlier, host Greg Gutfeld also said he believed Trump could claim victory after the lawmakers’ remarks.

“I think President Trump got exactly what he wanted,” he said, going on to list several disputed claims made by the congresswomen.

“I wrote down: ‘drinking out of toilets’ — that didn’t happen,” he said.

STIREWALT: TRUMP’S OMAR, AOC COMMENTS LEADING PELOSI TO TRY TO ‘TRAP REPUBLICANS’

“Colluding with Russians — I think we found out the answer to that. The most corrupt presidency in history — ‘eh’.”

During the press conference, Pressley repeated referred to Trump as “the occupant of the White House.”

She claimed he is seeking to “marginalize and silence” the women, but quickly turned her focus to various issues, from gun violence to immigration.

Omar, however, curtly dismissed Trump’s rhetoric as “the bile of garbage that comes out of his mouth.”

Tlaib, speaking separately, backed Omar’s call for impeachment, saying Trump’s language was “disgusting and bigoted” and that his administration was “lawless.”

Asked by Fox News’ Chad Pergram about Trump’s criticisms of Omar’s remarks as anti-American, Omar slammed the president’s, “complete hypocrisy,” and said his presidential campaign was founded on all the things “wrong” with the United States.

Omar has previously been criticized by prominent members of both parties for making anti-Semitic remarks. In March, the Democrat-led House overwhelmingly passed a bipartisan resolution that indirectly condemned Omar’s repeated ‘anti-Semitic’ and ‘pernicious’ comments.

Brit Hume: Trump’s attacks on ‘the squad’ run risk uniting a fractured Democratic Party

President Trump risks uniting a Democratic Party otherwise enmeshed in a battle between moderate and progressive factions by attacking the latter group, according to Brit Hume.

Democrats were internally warring on an ideological level ahead of the 2020 elections, and Trump’s pointed critiques put their differences on pause, Hume claimed Monday on “Special Report.”

“It’s striking that these Democrats were at war with this group of four and the president decided it was a good idea to get in the middle of it,” he said, referring to Reps. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.

“If you’re looking for one thing that would tend to unite Democrats, it’s their loathing of Donald Trump.

“If you want them to continue to stumble along — the Democrats — the way they seem to be fighting amongst themselves, it not at all clear to me that his getting in the middle of that is going to help that cause at all.”

In response, host Bret Baier asked Hume about how conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh appeared to take the opposite tack on that subject.

Limbaugh recently claimed Trump wants to see the Democrats united so he can pin ‘the squad’s’ political platform on all of them.

“I don’t think Trump likes the rift,” he said.

“I think Trump wants the Democratic Party to become known as the ‘Alexandria-Ocasio-Cortez-Green New Deal-Socialism Party’ —  I think he wants to hang that label around all of them, and for that to happen they have to be unified.”

Responding to Limbaugh, Hume said the radio host’s theory is plausible, but reiterated Trump should not be making such pointed comments as he had about lawmakers like Omar going “back” where they came from.

“Trump’s remarks were so blunt, so crude, so xenophobic, so nativist, that it opens up the charge he is a racist,” Hume said, adding however did not make specifically racist remarks.

He said the term “racist” is tossed around public discourse at inappropriate times.

Hume said it is however acceptable to consider the president’s statements “intolerant.”
