Trump blasts media over ‘exaggerated’ border detention center reports; Dem civil war over border bill

Good morning and welcome to Fox News First. Here’s what you need to know as you start the day and the new work week …

Trump faults Democrats for crowded border detention centers, accuses media of ‘phony and exaggerated’ reports
President Trump on Sunday accused the “Fake News Media” of spreading “phony and exaggerated accounts of the Border Detention Centers” while blaming Democrats for the crowded conditions of the holding facilities. “The Fake News Media, in particular the Failing @nytimes, is writing phony and exaggerated accounts of the Border Detention Centers,” Trump tweeted. “First of all, people should not be entering our Country illegally, only for us to then have to care for them.” In his tweet, Trump also added the following: “We said there was a Crisis – the Fake News & the Dems said it was “manufactured.” Now all agree we were right, but they always knew that. They are crowded (which we brought up, not them) because the Dems won’t change the Loopholes and Asylum. Big Media Con Job!”

Ken Cuccinelli, acting Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, took aim at Congress in an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” accusing them of complaining about a crisis at the border they have done nothing to solve. Meanwhile, in an interview on ABC News’ “This Week,” Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., agreed with fellow freshman progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., about the conditions of detention centers along the U.S.-Mexico border and claimed AOC was right to compare them to Nazi concentration camps. Expect the war of words over this issue to continue to rage on this week.

‘Sorry, not sorry’: Border bill battle underscores Dem civil war
Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., on Sunday joined Democrats who took issue with a recent interview with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who criticized the influence of the four freshmen lawmakers who voted against the $4.6 billion border bill signed into law last week by President Trump. In a New York Times interview, Pelosi downplayed the influence of Omar, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass. to “their public whatever” and Twitter following. Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter to explain to Pelosi, 79, that “public ‘whatever’ is called public sentiment.” “And wielding the power to shift it is how we actually achieve meaningful change in this country,” she continued. Omar wrote in response to Ocasio-Cortez, “Patetico! You know they’re just salty about WHO is wielding the power to shift “public sentiment” these days, sis. Sorry not sorry.”

Trump: ‘Iran better be careful’
President Trump lobbed a strong warning to Iran on Sunday after the rogue nation announced it had ratcheted up its uranium enrichment beyond the limit allowed by the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers. “Iran better be careful. … Iran is doing a lot of bad things,” Trump said. “Iran will never have a nuclear weapon.” Iran has said it was inching its program closer toward weapons-grade levels, while calling for a diplomatic solution to a crisis that has raised tensions with the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted on Sunday that Iran’s actions would “lead to further isolation and sanctions.”

Biden says he waited until right ‘opportunity’ to apologize for remarks on working with segregationist senators
Former Vice President Joe Biden may have stepped all over his apology for working with segregationist senators. The current 2020 Democratic front-runner says he waited until right “opportunity” to apologize for remarks on working with segregationist senators. He said his apology Saturday, delivered to a mostly black audience of several hundred in Sumter, S.C., was “the first opportunity we had to do it in a fulsome way.” South Carolina is the first Southern state to vote in next year’s primary and a crucial proving ground for candidates seeking the support of black Democrats. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., said Sunday she was happy Biden apologized but there was “plenty of disagreement” between the two 2020 presidential hopefuls.

Biden and Harris have two more additional rivals to battle in the race to face Trump in 2020: Rep. Justin Amash is not ruling out a White House run as an independent after leaving the GOP and liberal billionaire Tom Steyer reportedly is reconsidering running for president.

Epstein due in court
Politically-connected hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein is expected to appear in court Monday following his arrest this weekend on new sex-trafficking charges involving allegations that date to the early 2000s, according to law enforcement officials. Epstein, who has been tied to former President Bill Clinton, President Trump, and Great Britain’s Prince Andrew, has been accused of paying underage girls for massages and sexually abusing them at his mansion in Palm Beach, Fla., and in New York City. His 72-acre private estate on the Virgin Islands, a home said to be nicknamed “Orgy Island,” also has been under scrutiny. Christine Pelosi, a Democratic National Committee official and daughter of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, tweeted that it is “quite likely that some of our faves are implicated” in the Epstein case.

US women’s soccer team are World Cup champs once again – but will they accept an invitation to the White House?
Now that the U.S. women’s soccer team has won its fourth the Women’s World Cup, the big question is whether the team will accept an invitation to celebrate at the White House. President Trump unequivocally congratulated the team after its repeat World Cup win on Sunday — putting aside, at least for the moment, the firestorm surrounding star forward Megan Rapinoe’s vow never to visit the White House.

Rapinoe, the pink-haired team captain who emerged with the Golden Ball as top player and the Golden Boot as top scorer, has been an outspoken opponent of what she’s described as systemic gender inequality in the United States and Trump, vowing to never visit the White House. On Saturday, Rapinoe said that she believed that “not many, if any” of her teammates would visit the White House if they won the final against the Netherlands.

Massachusetts man accidentally sold wife’s bike – given to her by Holocaust-surviving father – during yard sale: reports

Westlake Legal Group Lindamood Massachusetts man accidentally sold wife’s bike – given to her by Holocaust-surviving father – during yard sale: reports fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/massachusetts fox news fnc/us fnc Bradford Betz article 824a6838-cd09-5b4e-bbf6-46a5d2e8ce60

A Massachusetts man mistakenly sold a vintage bike that was gifted to his wife by her Holocaust-surviving father more than 45 years ago and is now desperate to get it back, according to reports.

Newtown resident Allan Steinmetz sold his wife’s 1970s yellow Motobecane French Touring bike during neighborhood yard sale last month.

The bike, which sat unused in the couple’s garage for more than 40 years, was given to Steinmetz’s by her father when she was 16, Boston’s WFXT reported.

“The bike is absolutely priceless to not only my wife but to her family, my children, and she wanted to give this bike to out granddaughter one day, which I didn’t know,” Steinmetz said.

Steinmetz said he put the bike up for sale on a whim, having been distracted by counting money and managing transactions during the yard sale.

“It was important to my wife, I didn’t realize how…and that was the biggest mistake I’ve this year so far,” Steinmetz told “Bicycling.”

His wife’s father, a Holocaust survivor, had customized the bike – which was then considered the top of the line – because “he wanted my wife to feel as special as she was,” Steinmetz said.

Steinmetz has been pulling all the stops since accidentally selling the bike on June 27, having scoured bike shops and posting online. His efforts even got the attention of former Massachusetts Senator John Kerry.

“Massachusetts: Hope we can help this nice man from Newton!” Kerry tweeted. “As a husband, and as a son who never forgot those sentimental objects from my pa, this strikes a chord – and knowing her father was a Holocaust survivor makes it all the more poignant.”

But despite Steinmetz’ efforts, the bike remains missing.

“I was reckless and inconsiderate, and I took for granted how important the bike was to her,” Steinmetz said. He says he’ll do whatever it takes to get it back.

Second son dies a week after mom’s drowning attempt: report

A 7-year-old boy was taken off life support Sunday at California’s Valley Children’s Hospital while surrounded by family a week after authorities believe his mother took him and his 12-year-old brother to a rural irrigation ditch and tried to drown them.

Deputies found Jackson Telnas, 12, and his 7-year-old brother, Jacob Ray Telnas, unresponsive in an irrigation ditch full of water last Saturday in Porterville, Calif., according to the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office and local media. Jackson had suffered a traumatic brain injury, likely the result of drowning, the Visalia Times Delta reported.  

“They had an hour with Jacob Ray to love up on him, Jacob got a chance to spend time with him and tell him how much he loves him,” Diana Keeland, their grandmother told ABC 7.

Sherri Telnas, 45, who was arraigned last week, had already faced one count of murder with the special circumstance of lying in wait, the report said. She could be eligible for the death penalty.

She allegedly told deputies that she drowned the kids because they were possessed.

Jackson was 10 months old when Telnas tried to drown him in the Clark Fork River in Montana in 2008, the Mineral Independent reported at the time. During questioning, Telnas said “bad thoughts or voices” had told her to drown the baby, according to the paper.

In 2009 she pleaded guilty to lesser counts of criminal endangerment and was placed on probation for 20 years, according to the Independent.

18-year-old pageant queen and pilot dies in fiery plane crash

An 18-year-old pilot, who was set to compete in a Mississippi pageant later this month, died when she crashed on a golf course, officials said Sunday.

Lake Little, the daughter of Starkville, Miss., Alderman David Little and his wife Pattie, succumbed late Saturday to her injuries from the 3:15 p.m. crash on the Ole Miss Golf Course, University of Mississippi spokesman Rod Guajardo said Sunday.

The teenager, who dreamed of becoming a professional pilot, was practicing takeoffs and landings in a single-engine plane at the nearby University-Oxford Airport when she crashed near the course’s 17th tee box, The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reported.

“Such sad news about Lake Little. A beautiful light has passed from this world far too soon,” tweeted Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant.

Little was set to compete this month in Mississippi’s Miss Hospitality pageant. The winner of the competitions spends a year promoting tourism to the state.

“Lake had a vibrant personality. She was full of life and lived it to the fullest,” Starkville Miss Hospitality director Angella Baker told the paper. “She was very passionate about flying and had just recently received her private pilots license.”

According to her Miss Hospitality profile, Little aspired to eventually fly for FedEx.

A star student, she graduated in May from Starkville Academy, where she received numerous academic honors and was inducted into the school’s Hall of Fame.

She planned to study speech pathology and audiology at the University of Southern Mississippi and wanted to open her own clinic to help children and the elderly while maintaining an aviation career.

A 13-year-old boy from Tennessee stabbed his 15-year-old brother in Florida, telling deputies he would rather go to jail than spend eight hours in the car with his sibling, investigators said.

Lt. Todd Watkins with the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office told Fox News on Sunday that he responded to the scene the day before and said deputies arrested the 13-year-old after he said he stabbed his brother in the arm three times with a “multi-tool.”

Watkins said the teen told deputies he did it because he was “tired of his brother picking on him.”

The incident happened inside a car parked in a driveway in Crestview, which is about a 45-minute drive from Pensacola, Watkins said.

The stabbed brother then walked to the door of the home and called 911, he added.

Watkins said as his brother was being questioned about the incident, he said he understood his rights and that he did not regret stabbing his sibling who was teasing him.

“I stabbed him and I don’t care about going back to jail. I’d rather be in jail than eight hours in the car with him,” according to the arrest report.

The 13-year-old was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and was brought to juvenile detention.

“We’ve had incidents with siblings but not this young,” Watkins told Fox News. “I have never dealt with them this young with this violent of a crime.”

Watkins said the older brother did not say much to deputies at the time he was stabbed. Watkins said the 15-year-old was heard calling some of his friends to retaliate against his brother while he was in the back of the ambulance, apparently to no avail.

Doctors treated t​​​​​he 15-year-old for three “deep puncture wounds” before releasing him from the hospital, Watkins said, adding that his treatment did not include surgery.

A man in Florida is facing several charges including child cruelty after he allegedly threw lit firecrackers under a sleeping girl’s bed on Saturday, telling deputies it was a “prank gone wrong.”

Matthew Morrison, 44, of Crestview, which is about a 45-minute drive from Pensacola, lived in a tent outside the home he entered without permission, Lt. Todd Watkins with the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office told Fox News. He said the homeowner let him sleep outside on the property as a favor to an “acquaintance” he was trying to help.

Watkins said after Morrison threw the lit firecrackers under the 9-year-old girl’s bed, the homeowner chased him out of the house with a stick.

The child and Morrison were not hurt, deputies said, but the incident left the girl “terrified.” She told deputies she was crying and shaking after the prank, Watkins said.

Watkins, who responded to the scene, described the incident as “a strange deal.”

Billionaire financier and registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein is due in court Monday following an arrest on new charges that he trafficked young girls across state lines including New York, the Virgin Islands, Florida and a ranch in New Mexico, according to a lawyer for the accusers.

Attorney David Boies told Fox News on Sunday that Epstein, a wealthy hedge fund manager, will be charged with sex trafficking and conspiracy to commit sex trafficking, and he expected that more superseding indictments would be added.

Boies said both the public corruption unit and the sex trafficking unit in New York worked the investigation.

He said Epstein was picked up at a New York airport and taken into federal custody Saturday after his flight landed from Paris.

Epstein was being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons website. He’s expected to appear Monday in Manhattan federal court.

“This is an important first step. Hopefully prosecutors will focus on some of his [Epstein’s] co-conspirators going forward,” Boies told Fox News.

Epstein once counted as friends former President Bill Clinton, Britain’s Prince Andrew and President Trump.

Court documents obtained by Fox News in 2016 showed that Clinton took at least 26 trips flying aboard Epstein’s private jet, known as the “Lolita Express,” and apparently ditched his Secret Service detail on some of the excursions. Records showed that Trump apparently flew on the jet at least once.

Trump biographer Tim O’Brien this weekend reposted an excerpt from a 2002 profile of Epstein in New York Magazine, in which Trump told a reporter, “I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”

However, Trump’s legal team more recently has denied the two were friends.

Trump banned Epstein from his Mar-a-Lago estate “because Epstein sexually assaulted an underage girl at the club,” according to court documents filed by Bradley Edwards, the lawyer who has represented several Epstein accusers. That claim has not been confirmed by Trump or Mar-a-Lago.

Epstein’s arrest came amid renewed scrutiny of a once-secret plea deal that ended a federal investigation against him.

That deal, which has been challenged in Florida federal court, allowed Epstein, 66, to plead guilty to lesser state charges of soliciting and procuring a person under age 18 for prostitution.

Averting a possible life sentence, Epstein instead was sentenced to 13 months in jail. The deal also required he reach financial settlements with dozens of his once-teenage victims and register as a sex offender.

Epstein’s deal was overseen by former Miami U.S. Attorney Alexander Acosta, who is now Trump’s labor secretary. Acosta has defended the plea deal as appropriate under the circumstances, though the White House said in February that it was “looking into” his handling of the deal.

U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra of Florida ruled earlier this year that Epstein’s victims should have been consulted under federal law about the deal, and since then he’s been weighing whether to invalidate the non-prosecution agreement, or NPA, that protected Epstein from federal charges.
