President Trump spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday and discussed a range of issues, including nuclear weapons, a three-party arms control agreement and the conflict in Venezuela.

Trump and Putin, who according to the White House spoke for “a little over an hour,” discussed other topics as well, including North Korea, Ukraine, trade and the special counsel’s Russia investigation.

“Had a long and very good conversation with President Putin of Russia. As I have always said, long before the Witch Hunt started, getting along with Russia, China, and everyone is a good thing, not a bad thing,” Trump tweeted Friday after the call. “We discussed Trade, Venezuela, Ukraine, North Korea, Nuclear Arms Control and even the “Russian Hoax.” Very productive talk!”

From the Oval Office on Friday, the president told reporters some of the details of his talks with Putin on a potential nuclear deal.

“We’re talking about a nuclear agreement where we make less, and they make less, and maybe even where we get rid of some of the tremendous firepower we have now,” Trump said. “We’re spending billions of dollars on nuclear weapons. We need that, but we are also … looking at a three-way deal instead of a two-way deal.”

Trump explained that the U.S. would “probably start something up shortly between Russia and ourselves,” and that “China would be added down the road.”

It is unclear which arms control agreement was discussed, but Russian state news agency Tass reported that Trump and Putin spoke about the New START treaty, the last major arms-control treaty remaining between the U.S. and Russia.

The treaty was signed in 2010 and expires in 2021; it restricts both the U.S. and Russia to 1,550 deployed strategic nuclear warheads on a maximum of 700 deployed intercontinental ballistic missiles and strategic bombers.

“There was a discussion about having — extending the current nuclear agreement — as well as discussions about potentially starting a new one that could include China as well.”

Trump said China “very much” wants to be a part of that potential nuclear deal.

In his administration, though, Trump exited the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, the decades-old nuclear arms treaty with Russia. He accused Moscow of violating the treaty by deploying missiles banned by the pact. Moscow denied violating the treaty.

CLINTON-UKRAINE COLLUSION ALLEGATIONS ‘BIG’ AND ‘INCREDIBLE,’ WILL BE REVIEWED, TRUMP SAYS

A Kremlin readout of the call said the two presidents confirmed their mutual desire “to intensify dialogue in various fields, including on issues of strategic stability,” but gave no additional details.

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the two leaders spoke extensively about North Korea’s nuclear weapons program. (North Korean leader Kim Jong Un traveled to Russia last week to meet with Putin.) She said Trump said several times that it was important for Russia to continue to help put pressure on North Korea to denuclearize.

The statement released by the Kremlin after Friday’s call said Putin stressed that “Pyongyang’s conscientious fulfillment of its obligations should be accompanied by reciprocal steps to reduce sanctions pressure on North Korea.”

The two leaders also spoke about Venezuela. Trump said Putin said he was “not looking to get involved,” but would “like to see something positive happen.” Trump said the U.S. wanted to offer “some humanitarian aid.”

“We want to help on a humanitarian basis,” Trump said.

Meanwhile, Sanders said the two spoke “very, very briefly” about the Russia investigation. But Trump told reporters from the Oval Office Friday that Putin always knew that there had been no collusion between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign.

“We discussed it and he actually sort of smiled when he said something to the effect that it started off as a mountain and it ended up as a mouse,” Trump said. “But he knew that because he knew there was no collusion.”

Trump also blasted the Russia investigation, calling it, as he frequently does, the “Russian Hoax” and a “total witch hunt.” The president also again declared that there was “no collusion” and “no obstruction.”

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Surging economy complicates Dems’ 2020 message against Trump

President Trump might as well stick his tweet Friday morning on a campaign bumper sticker: “JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!”

The social media declaration came as the Labor Department reported robust new economic numbers, saying employers added 263,000 jobs in April as the unemployment rate dropped to a 49-year low.

JOBS AND WAGES SURGE IN APRIL

The stats only bolstered the president’s economy-focused message as he gears up for what is sure to be a grueling 2020 re-election fight. As Democrats increasingly make the election about the president’s character and controversies, the string of positive jobs reports are complicating any efforts to expand that message to run on more traditional kitchen-table issues.

“I’ll be running on the economy,” Trump said flatly, speaking to reporters at the White House Friday.

Trump’s campaign was quick to tout the numbers as well, with press secretary Kayleigh McEnany declaring “the era of low expectations for American workers and their families is long over thanks to the Trump economy.”

She added in a statement, “With this kind of momentum, we look forward to hearing the economic plans of the Democrats as they spin tales about Americans not feeling the results of the Trump economy, when in fact workers everywhere can feel the boom!”

The unemployment rate fell to 3.6 percent with the latest report. While part of that drop was due to an increased number of Americans who’ve stopped looking for work, the jobless rate is at its lowest level since 1969.

Also of note: the average hourly pay for workers jumped 3.2 percent from a year ago, which is considered a very healthy increase by economists.

The new numbers appear to put to rest fears earlier this year that the economy was heading toward recession. And they extend the nation’s nearly decade-long recovery from the Great Recession. That economic recovery, which started during then-President Barack Obama’s administration, is expected to become the longest in the nation’s history come July.

The president touted on Twitter that “we can all agree that AMERICA is now #1. We are the ENVY of the WORLD — and the best is yet to come!” as he re-tweeted a Drudge Report headline that read “ENVY OF THE WORD. UNEMPLOYMENT 49-YEAR LOW.”

While Trump spotlighted the new economic report, the news appears to make it a tougher sell for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination contenders on the economy, which remains a leading issue for voters.

Many of the leading Democratic presidential candidates passed on reacting to the Labor Department’s report.

But former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, taking aim at Trump, argued that “nobody should be beating their chest over that … We’ve got a long way to go.”

Hickenlooper, speaking with Fox News in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire before unveiling his own plans to boost the economy, admitted that “certainly we’re making progress and that’s great.” But he added, “is it fast enough for most Americans? I don’t think so.”

McEnany boasted that “the new jobs report is further proof that the Trump economy continues to boom and deliver benefits that all Americans are feeling.”

Her statement was an implicit shot at many of the leading Democratic contenders, who’ve continuously slammed the president as they argue the Trump tax cuts and the economic recovery have only benefited the wealthy and large corporations.

“The middle class is hurting, it’s hurting now,” former Vice President Joe Biden declared on Monday in Pittsburgh, as he delivered the first speech of his newly declared White House bid.

“The stock market is roaring. But you don’t feel it. There was a $2 trillion tax cut last year. Did you feel it? Did you get anything from it?” Biden asked, as the audience packed into a union hall chanted, “No.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, a top rival for the Democratic nomination, wrote in an opinion piece for Fox News last month that “in America today, we have more wealth and income inequality than any other major country on Earth and it is worse now than at any other time since the 1920s.”

And the independent senator from Vermont, who’s making his second straight White House run, vowed to fight for “an economy that expands the middle class and reduces poverty and not one that makes the very rich much richer.”

Another progressive contender for the nomination, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, repeatedly spotlights that the 2020 election “is our chance to dream big, to fight hard, and to make this an America that works not just for the rich and the powerful but an America that works for everyone.”

Veteran New Hampshire-based political scientist Wayne Lesperance said that “challengers to the president are working hard to craft a narrative that elevates their stature and defines the president as not deserving a second term. Part of the strategy is to reframe the president’s strengths as illegitimate.”

Lesperance, vice president of academic affairs at New England College, stressed that “the fact is economic growth and job creation are stronger than expected and impact all Americans positively.”

“Harry Truman’s famous maxim that the buck stops here is as true in good economic times as bad. President Trump is the beneficiary of a surprisingly strong and growing economy. And if the past is prologue, American voters will reward the president as they continue to vote with their pocketbooks,” he added.

The release of the report comes just two days after a new national poll by CNN indicated Trump had hit a new high on his economic approval ratings, with 56 percent of those questioned saying the president’s doing a good job on the economy. CNN’s polling, though, also showed numerous Democratic candidates including Sanders, Biden and former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke beating Trump in head-to-head matchups.

While there’s plenty for Trump to brag about and a good narrative for him to tell, there’s no guarantee he’ll stay on message. Republicans in Congress urged the president to spotlight the economy and the tax cuts during the 2018 midterm elections, but he often drifted to other issues as he stumped for GOP candidates.

Some pundits question whether the 2020 election will see an electorate focused on the economy, or on values.

White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney thinks the economy will win out over all the controversies that have consumed the Trump presidency.

Spelling out the president’s 2020 economic message, Mulvaney on Tuesday suggested voters would still be willing to support Trump at the ballot box even if they don’t like him personally.

“You hate to sound like a cliché, but are you better off than you were four years ago? It’s pretty simple, right? It’s the economy, stupid. I think that’s easy. People will vote for somebody they don’t like if they think it’s good for them,” Mulvaney said as he spoke at the Milken conference in Los Angeles.

After 12 seasons, the beloved CBS sitcom “The Big Bang Theory” is coming to an end. But Kaley Cuoco, who has long played Penny on the show, is happy with the ending the series’ writers gave her character.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight at the cast’s handprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood this week, the actress said Penny has a “beautiful” send-off in the final season.

“I’m thrilled with [Penny’] ending, yet beginning,” she said. “There’s not anything catastrophic, it’s just beautiful. And the characters are gonna live on in your minds and in your hearts, and I think that’s what is so special about it. It’s really touching.”

The 33-year-old also revealed it was difficult for her to hold back tears during the show’s final days of production, per ET.

“I might be cried out if that’s possible. It’s been an unbelievable couple days,” she said.

“There [have been] a lot of tissues,” Cuoco continued. “It started with reading that initial script, and then last night shooting it in front of the audience, and this morning with the hands at Mann’s Chinese [Theatre]. It’s just been a beautiful tribute to our show. I don’t know, I just feel so grateful. It’s been a gift, a gift of 12 years.”

The actress also revealed there has been “stress” for both the show’s actors and writers regarding the series’ ending.

“How’s this gonna end? This is my legacy of this character, on and on,” she added.

And as for the show’s two-part finale, Cuoco called it “beautiful” and “amazing.”

“It is the most beautiful finale I have ever seen, and I love finales. It is so touching. You’re gonna cry, but in the sweetest way,” she said. “I don’t know how to describe it, other than it’s absolutely the sweetest thing in the world.”

The 2019 Tony Award nominations are out, and there are some familiar faces alongside some new arrivals.

Newcomer “Hadestown” opened just two weeks before nominations were announced, but clearly made a big impression – garnering 14 nominations. The show is a modern retelling of the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. “It’s like nothing I’ve heard on Broadway,” says Patrick Page, who plays Hades in the show. “It’s like you’re in a New Orleans jazz club and yet there are rock influences and blues influences, jazz, folk – it’s just a hybrid”

The Jukebox musical “Ain’t Too Proud – The Life And Times Of The Temptations” was close behind with 12 nominations. And stage adaptations of movies are also raking in the noms – “Tootsie” took 11, and “Beetlejuice” has eight.

Rounding out the list is “The Prom,” with seven nominations. The show follows what happens when a high school controversy gets thrown into the national spotlight. “I think people can connect with its humor and its vulnerability,” says Caitlin Kinnunen, who’s nominated for Lead Actress in a Musical. “They can see themselves in any of these characters and they leave laughing and crying happy tears.”

A group of Hollywood A-listers are also up for Broadway’s top honor – including Bryan Cranston, Jeff Daniels, Adam Driver, Annette Bening and Laurie Metcalf.

Also in the mix – revivals of beloved classics. “Kiss Me Kate” has four nominations, and a non-traditional production of “Oklahoma!” has eight.

The nominees have to wait until June – when James Corden takes the stage to host the 73rd Tony awards.

Microsoft teams up with the VA to help wounded warriors

Microsoft is teaming up with the Veteran’s Administration to help our wounded warriors – using video games.

As part of a new pilot program, 22 VA facilities around the country will be receiving a gift from Microsoft: X-Box Adaptive Controllers, which are specially designed for gamers with mental or physical disabilities. “We owe so much to the service and sacrifice of our Veterans, and as a company, we are committed to supporting them,” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said in a press statement. “Our X-Box Adaptive Controller was designed to make gaming more accessible to millions of people worldwide, and we’re partnering with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to bring the device to Veterans with limited mobility.”

The military hospitals will be using them to help rehabilitate wounded warriors, and X-Box chief Phil Spencer says if it’s successful – the program could expand. The collaboration aims to improve rehabilitation and recreation for veterans by challenging muscle activation and hand-eye coordination, and encouraging greater participation in social and recreational activities. That will include participation in e-sports as well as traditional solo gaming.

X-Box and the VA are ultimately hoping this new form of therapy will eventually help rebuild skills for veterans with both physical and psychological injuries, putting an emphasis on making a full and complete recovery, not just getting soldiers ‘back on their feet.’ One of those veterans, Mike Monthervil, sustained a spinal injury during a training exercise in Afghanistan. He says “I think gaming is helping soldiers like myself getting back into playing and doing what they love and bringing joy back to their life.”

Details of Sanders’ Soviet ‘honeymoon’ exposed, as entourage member recalls shock at Bernie’s America-bashing

Westlake Legal Group AP19105826362887 Details of Sanders’ Soviet ‘honeymoon’ exposed, as entourage member recalls shock at Bernie’s America-bashing Sam Dorman fox-news/politics/socialism fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox news fnc/politics fnc article 2b8686c7-4292-5379-8321-8549890c065a

New details emerged Friday about Sen. Bernie Sanders‘ infamous honeymoon in the Soviet Union back in the 1980s — including an anecdote about how his America-bashing abroad prompted one of his traveling companions to walk out of the room.

“I got really upset and walked out,” David F. Kelley, a Republican who helped arrange the trip and was part of the entourage, recalled in an extensive piece in The Washington Post. Kelley said that during Sanders’ 1988 trip, the now-2020 presidential hopeful acted inappropriately by criticizing his own country amid the Cold War.

“When you are a critic of your country, you can say anything you want on home soil,” he said. “At that point, the Cold War wasn’t over, the arms race wasn’t over, and I just wasn’t comfortable with it.”

Sanders’ criticism reportedly included knocking the cost of housing and health care in the U.S. while, at a banquet, blasting the U.S. for interventions in other countries.

During an hour-long news conference upon his return to the U.S., Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, seemed unrepentant.

SANDERS ACCUSES TRUMP, GOP OF ‘SUPPRESSING VOTE’ AS HE DOUBLES DOWN ON FELON VOTING PLAN

“The fact that we were willing to be critical of the United States . . . I think that made them maybe more appreciative of our criticisms we made of their own society,” he said, according to the Post.

“We were saying, ‘Yeah, in our country, we also have a housing crisis. Our housing in general is better than yours, but people are paying 40 percent of their income for housing. The quality of your housing is not good, but we appreciate the fact that people are paying 5 percent. The quality of your health care is not good, but in the United States, believe me, we have enormous problems in terms of our health-care system.’”

The details are the latest to emerge from Sanders’ past, as the Vermont senator establishes himself as perhaps the premier progressive among a vibrant insurgency within the Democratic Party. Sanders, along with others, have pushed big government policies like “Medicare-for-all” and free college tuition, which conservatives have derided as unrealistic and too expensive.

“I did not see a hungry child. I did not see any homeless people,” Sanders said after his visit to the Soviet Union. He’s also praised the Soviet Union’s transportation system and defended Cuban dictator Fidel Castro for his efforts at improving education and health care.

“The revolution there is far deeper and more profound than I understood it to be. It really is a revolution in terms of values,” he said of the Cuban revolution.

In 1985, Sanders visited Nicaragua and said he was “impressed” by socialist leader Daniel Ortega. Other videos have shown Sanders defending bread lines and recalling the excitement he felt about Castro’s revolution.

“I was a kid … and it just seemed right and appropriate that poor people were rising up against rather ugly rich people,” he said of the revolution.

Sanders faces a tough challenge from former Vice President Joe Biden, perceived as more of a moderate, for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination — part of a field of over 20 candidates.

While he has garnered significant support in the polls, he’s also lagged behind Biden and faced criticism over some of his more unorthodox positions.

Dr. Marc Siegel advises passengers aboard quarantined cruise ship not to panic: ‘Look out on the ocean’

cruise ship has been quarantined on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia due to a confirmed case of the measles, but NYU medical professor Dr. Marc Siegel said the best thing the passengers can do is keep their cool.

The quarantine of nearly 300 passengers aboard the ship has taken place among a nationwide outbreak of measles, as nearly 700 cases have been reported across the United States.

There has only been one case confirmed on the ship, named “Freewinds,” but the disease is highly contagious and can spread quickly among those unvaccinated. The infected person aboard is reportedly in stable condition.

During an appearance on “America’s Newsroom” on Friday, Dr. Siegel said that it’s not uncommon for infections to break out on cruise ships, because they hold a large number of people in close quarters and are often not adequately disinfected.

DR. MARC SIEGEL: MEASLES QUARANTINE ON A CRUISE SHIP – WHAT ARE CHALLENGES FOR PASSENGERS?

Although the measles outbreak and quarantine in St. Lucia is cause for alarm, Dr. Siegel, who authored the book “False Alarm,” said that most people diagnosed with the virus end up being fine.

“This isn’t the time I’m going to go on TV and warn about those rare complications of the measles or warn about hospitalization,” he told host Bill Hemmer.

In this case, he says, those on the ship would do well to have some “diversionary activity” to take their minds off of the stress, such as exercising in an area that is measles-free.

“If you are on the boat the best thing you can do is realize that the vast majority of the time if you’ve got measles, you would recover uneventfully. And also go out on the balcony, look out on the ocean,” he added.

Steve Scalise: Jobs numbers will be good for Trump’s message in 2020

The unemployment rate has dropped to its lowest level since 1969, and Rep. Steve Scalise said it’s proof President Trump has fulfilled his promises to American workers.

During an appearance on “America’s Newsroom” on Friday, Scalise highlighted the recently revealed job numbers, which showed that 268,000 jobs were added to the American workforce last month, and that unemployment is now at 3.4 percent, both exceeding expectations from experts.

“This is great news for American workers,” Scalise said. “Wages are up for hard-working families. That’s really for those people that are trying to get into the middle class, and become part of the American dream. Clearly, the work that we did with President Trump to lower taxes and get regulations under control is paying huge dividends for American workers today,” he continued.

As President Trump readies his reelection campaign for the 2020 presidential race, Scalise said he believes the economic gains and improved job numbers under Trump’s White House will be a key selling point for voters.

“President Trump made it clear when he ran for president that he wanted to get the economy going again,” Scalise said.

“He wanted to stand up and fight for American workers, the men and women who had been left behind for the last 10 years. It is working and delivering for those very people. This is great for the president’s message going into 2020,” he continued.

Aside from the recent jobs numbers, it was reported last month that the GDP grew by 3.2 percent in the first quarter of 2019, prompting many to forecast an economic boom in the remainder of the year. This isn’t just a positive for President Trump, Scalise added, but for all Americans.

“Great news for President Trump and greater news for American men and women hard-working families across America who have been looking for relief for years and years and they finally got it,” Scalise said.

Otto Warmbier’s mother says North Korea ‘a cancer on earth’, calls diplomacy a ‘charade’

Cindy Warmbier, the mother of student Otto Warmbier, who died in the U.S. in 2017 after being detained and held in North Korea for 17 months, called the hermit kingdom “a cancer on the earth.”

Warmbier appeared at the Hudson Institute in Washington, D.C., Friday which hosted the “Seminar on the North Korean Abductions Issue.” She hosted the seminar with other families of those who have been abducted.

“He was a great student, fabulous son, great brother, lots of friends,” she said of her late son, who was in his third year at the University of Virginia.

“Unfortunately, I had no idea when he took the tour to North Korea what he was walking into,” she continued.

NORTH KOREA GAVE US $2M HOSPITAL BILL OVER CARE OF AMERICAN OTTO WARMBIER, SOURCES SAY

“North Korea to me is a cancer on the earth and if we ignore this cancer it’s not going to go away it’s going to kill all of us,” she said. “We don’t even know we have this cancer that’s why I talk there is a cancer I tell you.”

Warmbier said she was sure her son was sorry for “going into that God forsaken place.”

REP. ADAM KINZINGER: U.S. DIDN’T PAY NORTH KOREA FOR OTTO WARMBIER

“Had I known North Korea wanted money for Otto I would have gladly given them money from day one,” she said. “That is not what they wanted from Otto in the beginning. They want everything they can get from them. They have no respect for human beings.”

Warmbier was appearing to reference that the U.S. received a $2 million hospital bill from the North Korean government for the care of Otto, who fell into a coma for unknown reasons while he was imprisoned in the country. North Korean officials did not tell American officials until June 2017 that he had been unconscious the entire time. He died less than a week after he returned to the U.S. the same month.

The mother said her “gorgeous boy” looked like “a monster” when he returned to the U.S.

“I swear the look in his eyes, which I didn’t know he was blind at the time, was absolute horror like he had seen the devil and he had, he was with the devil,” she said.

Warmbier spoke of diplomatic relations with North Korea, saying she remained skeptical.

“There is a charade going on right now. It’s called diplomacy. How can you have diplomacy with someone who doesn’t tell the truth? I’m all for it but I’m very skeptical,” she continued.

The mother said North Korean leader Kim Jong Un “lies all for himself.”

“The only difference between [Adolf] Hitler and him [Kim Jong Un] is that he’s doing it to all of his people and other people too,” she concluded.

The mother said she will remain strong “because Otto was always proud of me for being strong.”

North Korea repeatedly has denied accusations Warmbier was tortured and officials told their U.S. counterparts at the time that he had suffered from botulism and then slipped into a coma after taking a sleeping pill.

Fox News’ Lucia Suarez Sang, Ben Evansky and the Associated Press contributed to this report.
