    The historic White House Rose Garden is getting an upgrade for the first time in nearly 60 years. First Lady Melania Trump faced backlash after revealing the restoration plans Monday — just months before the election, as coronavirus cases continue to surge in many states.  Mrs. Trump said she wants to return the garden to its original 1962 glory, when it was designed by Rachel Lambert Mellon, a friend of President John F. Kennedy. Mellon wrote that she was found inspiration during an October walk along Fifth Avenue in New York City, when she was awestruck by magnolia trees outside of the Frick Museum.  Plans are already underway to restore the famous garden, the first lady said during a rare...
    Amid a global pandemic that has killed 150,000 Americans and is slowing like a train that just started to choo choo over a cliff, 100 days from an election that is the fifth consecutive most important election in our lifetimes, first lady Melania Trump will begin the important work of renovating the Rose Garden to more closely resemble its original 1960s design.  Finally! This is what we elected her for.  Some will say that rose gardening to the tune of the apocalypse is yet another gesture that is at best oblivious and at worst passive-aggressively cruel. Others will say that it’s a canny move by a classy lady who embodies tenacity in her public life. They’re both wrong. Melania’s push...
    First lady Melania Trump announced Monday that the White House Rose Garden is getting a makeover, and the project is already underway thanks to funds from private donors. What are the details? The White House issued a news release from the office of the first lady, explaining that the Rose Garden would "return to its original '62 footprint" as designed by philanthropist Rachel Lambert "Bunny" Mellon during the Kennedy administration. Updates will also be added to make the outdoor space more accommodating for people with disabilities and to provide modern infrastructure for audiovisual and broadcasting needs. The memo noted that "the project is supported by the National Park Service, who has cared for the White House...
    Madison Summers July 27, 2020 0 Comments U.S. First Lady Melania Trump plans to do a “significant renewal” of the Rose Garden at the White House this summer, to improve the iconic location. “The very act of planting a garden involves hard work and hope in the possibility of a bright future,” Trump said in a statement, along with the press release. The plan is to “provide a renewal” of the original design, which is the “guiding blueprint” from 1962 established during the Kennedy administration. “The refreshment of the Rose Garden will return it to its original ‘62 footprint and help ensure it will thrive with improved infrastructure, better drainage, and a healthier environment for plantings that reduce the...
    Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti warned the city was 'on the brink' of another stay-at-home order and admitted that the economy resumed too quickly as cases continue to spike in the coronavirus hot spot. In the same interview on CNN's State of the Union, Garcetti blasted President Trump for a 'lack of national leadership' and giving 'rants in the Rose Garden' instead of enacting a feasible coronavirus response.  'I think we're on the brink of that,' Garcetti said about a potential second city lockodown.  'I think a lot of people don’t understand, mayors often have no control what opens up and doesn’t — that’s either at a state or county level. And I do agree, that those things happened too quickly.' ...
    On Tuesday at a somewhat hastily-called press conference that lasted for more than an hour President Donald Trump used the Rose Garden of the White House to slam and slander his political opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, in a speech that had ethics experts shaking. Some called for the White House officials who worked on the speech or the event to be charged with violating the Hatch Act. Many Americans watched and listened in horror as Trump desecrated the the land that President John F. Kennedy used to honor Project Mercury astronauts, and where President Barack Obama held a State Dinner to honor Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany. Never before in America’s history had a President campaigned, so blatantly,...
    White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany fired back at a reporter who questioned her about President Donald Trump’s “political speech in the Rose Garden” by asking him to read the Hatch Act. Trump’s Tuesday Rose Garden speech was criticized by CNN’s Jim Acosta and others as more of a campaign-style speech than a press conference. “I have a question that flows from two events that we saw recently that we wouldn’t have seen in previous White Houses,” the reporter said during Thursday’s White House press conference. “The first was the campaign meeting last month, and then the political speech in the Rose Garden.” “Can you talk about your understanding of what the White House policy is?” he continued. “This White...
    (CNN)President Donald Trump stood in front of the White House press corps on Tuesday afternoon and vented. What was billed as a press conference rapidly turned into a quasi-campaign event, with the President of the United States free-associating about his general election opponent, the state of the country and the media. Even by Trump standards, it was a shocking performance -- suggesting a level of volatility and unpredictability that has to terrify Republicans trying to run and win campaigns while sharing the same ballot with Trump in November.I went through the transcript of Trump's speech and pulled out the lines you need to see. They're below. 1) "So we had a big day in the stock market, things are coming...
    The View hosts went after the “ludicrous remarks” President Donald Trump made Tuesday during both his Rose Garden speech and his interview with CBS’ Catherine Herridge — Joy Behar even guessing that the president is “unraveling.” After sharing a clip of the president bashing Democratic nominee Joe Biden and another of Trump insisting that more white people than Black people die at the hands of the police, Behar claimed, “he has no idea what he’s talking about.” Whoopi Goldberg joked that even white people would be surprised by Trump’s false claim, citing a Harvard study that found Black people are three times more likely to be killed by police than white people. “He’s unraveling. He is unraveling. His incompetence and ludicrous remarks and...
    CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta claimed Tuesday that the White House staff had been reduced to “Kool-aid drinkers and next of kin.” Acosta spoke with CNN anchor Anderson Cooper following President Donald Trump’s Rose Garden speech and press conference, which they both characterized as more of a campaign-style speech.

    President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign is floundering because he is incapable of doing anything but bragging about himself, according to MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” The president delivered an overtly political speech from the White House Rose Garden as he tries to turn the focus from the coronavirus pandemic and the related economic fallout, and NBC News political reporter Carol Lee said that goes against adviser from campaign officials.

    Tuesday on CNN’s “Situation Room,” network White House correspondent Jim Acosta declared President Donald Trump gave giving a “rabbling, unhinged,” campaign rally-like speech in the Rose Garden today. Acosta said, “I’ve never seen a president turn the Rose Garden into a campaign rally the way President Trump did in the last — more than an hour. This is obviously the campaign rally he wanted to have in New Hampshire that his campaign wasn’t able to have last weekend. He instead decided to have it here in the rose garden. You can just go through line by line, section by section of what the president had to say here in almost the same fashion we do with the campaign rallies to...
    CNN's chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta accused President Trump of giving a campaign speech from the Rose Garden. "Trump soiled the WH Rose Garden with that performance. Presidents do not use the Rose Garden in that kind of naked political fashion. That was not a press conference, as the WH described it. It was a campaign rally disguised as a press conference. It was a bait and switch," he tweeted on Tuesday. Trump soiled the WH Rose Garden with that performance. Presidents do not use the Rose Garden in that kind of naked political fashion.

    CNN’s Anderson Cooper opened his show Tuesday night tearing into President Donald Trump’s “meandering screed” in the Rose Garden. Cooper said it was full of applause lines but that “this wasn’t some stadium packed full after supporters that come to cheer and bask in the glow of this artificially tan man.” “His meandering screed was not closed to anything one would normally expect or accept of a president, but that shouldn’t surprise us. That he chose to do it in the Rose Garden steps from the Oval Office… that’s how numb we are.” The fact that “none of it surprises us,” Cooper said, shows “how far we have fallen.” He went on to bring up how the U.S. coronavirus...
    CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta called out President Donald Trump for executing a presidential bait-and-switch, promising the press corps a “news conference” on China, but then taking only a few questions after giving a nearly hour-long, campaign rally-like attack on Joe Biden, protestors, and China. Speaking on The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer,Acosta told the eponymous host that, in his eight years covering the White House: “I’ve never seen a president turn the Rose Garden into a campaign rally the way President Trump did in the last — more than an hour.” “This is obviously the campaign rally he wanted to have in New Hampshire that his campaign wasn’t able to have last weekend,” Acosta said of the low-energy, rambling speech that...
    Fox News covered the entirety of President Donald Trump’s lengthy Rose Garden press conference Monday, and once it wrapped Bret Baier remarked upon how notable it was that most of the White House event was campaign rhetoric. The president briefly announced U.S. action against China in response to the national security law on Hong Kong before going on a rather long campaign-event-style speech attacking Joe Biden and various other political foes. Baier reviewed the speech for viewers and said, “The president wrapping up what turned out to be a long list of differences with Biden. What the president called a list of Democrat agenda items. He spoke for 52 mites before taking a question.” “Presidents in the past by...
    President Donald Trump is holding a press conference in the White House Rose Garden on Tuesday afternoon. According to multiple reports, the press conference will focus largely on China. But if he takes questions, Trump will undoubtedly be confronted about a number of remarks he made in a CBS interview – of which excerpts have just been released. Notably, the president scolded CBS’ Catherine Herridge for asking what he deemed to be a “terrible question” when she quizzed Trump as to why “African-Americans still dying at the hands of law enforcement in this country?” “So are white people,” Trump replied. “So are white people. What a terrible question to ask. So are white people. More white people, by the...
    OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- An aggressive turkey with a bad habit of attacking people has forced the closure of Morcom Rose Garden in Oakland's Grand Lake neighborhood.The turkey, nicknamed Gerald, isn't exactly new to town. Mike Taylor, who lives nearby, says Gerald used to line up like clockwork alongside casual carpool riders, before COVID-19 put an end to that sort of socializing. Gerald the turkey waits for casual carpool near Oakland's Morcom Rose Garden in January 2020. The turkey started displaying aggression toward people in May 2020. Mike Taylor However, Gerald's aggression is a newer phenomenon. Perhaps feeling the stress of a global pandemic or America's long legacy of racism, Gerald has taken to viciously attacking visitors to the rose...
    Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., told "The Story" Monday that he opposed Black Entertainment Television founder Robert Johnson's call for paying $14 trillion in slavery reparations to African-Americans, saying such payments would likely lead to "more eruptions." "I don't think reparations help level the playing field, it might help more eruptions on the playing field," Scott said. Johnson had told "Special Report"earlier Monday evening that taxpayer-funded reparations would help end the riots and looting that have overtaken cities across America following the death of George Floyd. JOHNSON CALLS FOR SLAVERY REPARATIONS TO STOP RIOTS "I don't think reparations is the right approach to it," Scott responded. Video"Perhaps one of the most important, I guess paths forward is looking back," he added. "Looking, understanding, and appreciating the drastic occurrence, the challenges that have been faced by so many African-Americans...
    (CNN)Read President Donald Trump's speech delivered Monday evening at the White House:Thank you very much. My fellow Americans, my first and highest duty as President is to defend the great country and the American people. I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our nation, and that is exactly what I will do. All Americans are rightly sickened and revolted by the brutal death of George Floyd. My administration is fully committed that for George and his family, justice will be served. He will not have died in vain. But we cannot allow the righteous prize and peaceful protesters to be drowned out by an angry mob. The biggest victims of the rioting are peace loving citizens in our...
    WASHINGTON -- U.S. officials vowed to "maximize federal law enforcement presence" in the nation's capital on Monday night after days of violent demonstrations led to fires across Washington and left scores of businesses with broken windows and dozens of police officers injured.In a call with governors, President Donald Trump and Attorney General William Barr also encouraged more aggressive action against those who cause violence during protests across the country following the killing of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man who died after a white Minneapolis policeman pressed his knee into his neck for several minutes even after Floyd stopped moving and pleading for air. The demonstrations have turned violent in several cities, with fires ignited in Lafayette Park across from...
