Donald Trump announces executive order to protect free speech at colleges

ASSOCIATED PRESS

President Donald Trump on Saturday attacked U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller ahead of his report on alleged Russian Federation collusion by the Trump campaign in 2016 and said his political opponents were "trying to take me out with bullshit".

In a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday, President Trump announced he would sign an executive order pressuring schools to support free speech in order to receive federal research dollars.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Saturday he would soon sign an executive order requiring American universities and colleges to maintain "free speech" on campuses and threatened that schools not complying could lose federal research funds. The president reiterated his previous criticism of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whom he fired a day after the November midterm elections, calling him "weak" for recusing himself from Mueller's investigation.

Their efforts increased in the past week after Trump's former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, appeared before two House committees and a Senate committee. "He's going to be a very wealthy young man".

The word "socialism" has been in heavy rotation since some Democratic candidates began openly embracing liberal platforms including the Green New Deal and a Medicare for All.

The White House has rejected Cohen's allegations and on Saturday, Trump said his talks with Kim were productive and could lead to an agreement in which other, unspecified nations provide aid to Pyongyang.

"America will never be a socialist country", he added.

Trump invited Hayden Williams to join him while he addressed CPAC.

At the end of the marathon speech, Trump touched on his summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in Vietnam, which ended this week with the USA president walking away without a denuclearization deal.

"I think it's really something that they should promote, that they should work hard on".

"When the wind stops blowing, that's the end of your electric", the president joked. "I say, no, no, I think the New Green Deal, or whatever the hell they call it ..." Let's hurry up, darling, is the wind blowing today? "I'd like to watch television, darling". "I'm in love, you're in love and we're all in love together", the president said. Can you imagine if we left interest rates where they were?

It was his first public appearance since coming home empty-handed, and to brickbats from all sides, from a nuclear-disarmament summit with North Korea's reclusive leader Kim Jong Un.
