Trump to raise support for Handel in Ga. overflow



President Trump is slated to hold a pledge drive for Georgia GOP congressional cheerful Karen Handel amid his visit to Atlanta on Friday, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution revealed Tuesday.

Tickets to the pledge drive purportedly begin at $2,700, with host sponsorship costing $25,000. As per the report, the solicitations were conveyed to the Republican givers in the state on Tuesday evening.

The White House has been effectively required in the Georgia extraordinary race to fill the seat of Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, and has openly encouraged the voters not to back Handel's Democratic rival Jon Ossoff.

Handel could constrain Ossoff into an overflow a week ago, with the Democrat neglecting to secure the greater part vote expected to win the decision inside and out.

The combine will now confront each other in late June.

Handel has respected Trump's support of her push to keep the long-lasting Republican locale red.

"It is all active deck for us," she advised CNN after Trump called to compliment her on progressing to the spillover.

"We comprehend what is in question here and I don't feel this is about any one individual. We as a whole need to transcend it, that it is about the region that has a long heritage of Republican initiative."

Trump backs Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines

US President Donald Trump has infuriated environmentalists by signing executive orders that support two controversial oil pipelines.

The new Republican president backed the Keystone XL and Dakota Access projects, provided American steel is used.

The Obama administration in late 2015 halted Keystone, which would carry crude from Canada to Texas.

Over the course of the Obama presidency, the Keystone XL Pipeline became more than just another energy industry construction project. It grew into a high-profile proxy fight between environmentalists and oil-and-gas advocates; liberals and conservatives; pro-regulation activists and small-government true believers.

On the campaign trail Donald Trump often cited the Obama administration's reluctance to green-light the project as prima facie evidence of the Democratic Party's anti-business attitudes. Now, with the swipe of a pen, he's set make it much easier for the project to be completed - assuming the involved company still wants it.

Perhaps of more immediate concern is Mr Trump's move to fast-track approval of the Dakota Access Pipeline, which was the focus of vigorous protests from Native American tribes in 2016. Unlike Keystone, that project has not been held in limbo for years.

Mr Trump's actions do not mean the end of the fight over US pipeline construction, however. Opponents will continue to argue that they jeopardise sensitive environmental areas and violate private property rights. Now, however, instead of appealing to a potentially friendly Democratic administration, they will take the battle to the courts.The Army decided last year to explore other routes for the Dakota pipeline amid huge protests by Native Americans.

Trump Is Making Journalism Great Again

Donald Trump and his forthcoming presidency may be the greatest gift to Washington journalism since the invention of the expense account. His unorthodox approach to politics and governance has vaporized the standard, useful, yet boring script for reporting on a new administration’s doings. At his news conference last week, Trump began the process of washing the press completely out of his fake hair as he castigated CNN and BuzzFeed for reporting on the oppo-research dossier compiled on him. “Fake news,” said the man who has appeared on InfoWars and commended the outlet’s efforts.

Trump’s surrogate Newt Gingrich took to Sean Hannity’s program on Fox to assist in the maiming of the media. Trump and his team “need to go out there and understand they have it in their power to set the terms of this dialogue,” Gingrich said on the Jan. 11 episode. “They can close down the elite press.” Next up came Reince Priebus’ announcement that Trump might evict the presidential press corps from the White House for lesser lodging in the adjacent Old Executive Office Building, and Sean Spicer’s admonition that reporters “adhere to a high level of decorum at press briefings and press conferences,” according to a readout of his two-hour summit with the head of the White House Correspondents’ Association. (Or else what, one wonders?)
