President Donald Trump selected Alexander Acosta as his choice for labor secretary during a press conference on Thursday afternoon before turning his attention to the media. Fake news. It's all fake news.
He pointed to Trump's restarting of the construction of oil pipelines, removal of business regulations, moves to end Obamacare and the ending of Washington's involvement in a free trade pact with Pacific countries.
"The failing New York Times wrote a big, long front-page story yesterday and it was very much discredited, as you know", Trump said.
Movie about Malcolm Butler's life story is in the works
Butler played 1,008 defensive snaps, intercepted four passes, broke up 16 more and made 63 tackles during the 2016 season. Two New England Patriots players are having their heroics immortalized on the big screen.
Trump was repeatedly pressed on whether his campaign staff had been in contact with Russian Federation, as a widening drama over his alleged connections with Moscow dominates news coverage.
The president said many people, including in the media, are unhappy because he's implementing his agenda and following through on the promises he made to the American people. We got 306 because people came out and voted like they've never seen before so that's the way it goes. "But in the middle of that, I think you have found a growing sense of optimism ... that there are levers of power that we can deploy".
"Muslim- Americans should take comfort in know that the effort to protect their religious liberties has been ongoing since 9/11, has transcended the partisan divide, and I hope continues to transcend the partisan divide", Acosta said then. "I see tone. and the tone is such hatred".

Pres. Trump: "This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine, despite the fact that I can't get my cabinet approved". "President Trump also suggested that the U.S. and SA do more to collaborate on shared security interests‚ including the fight against terrorism". He also lamented that "drugs are becoming cheaper than candy bars"; spouted a deeply misleading statistic about the federal court that blocked his immigration ban; maintained that the ban had a "very smooth rollout;" and falsely claimed that he had won the electoral college by a larger margin than any president since Reagan. Instead, officials have said Trump would introduce a new executive order next week. "So, I don't want classified information getting out to the public and in a way that was nearly a test". "I'd be a pretty good reporter", he blithely announced.
He also stressed that he had no loans or business deals in Russian Federation from his previous career as a real estate mogul. "I don't mind bad stories, I can handle bad stories better than anybody", he boasted. "Are they friends of yours?"
Trump also said that he did not order Flynn to discuss sanctions during his telephone conversations, but that he would find nothing wrong with Flynn doing so.
