'Tacky' painting of Trump drinking with other presidents hangs in White House

President Donald Trump says he won't accept the blame if Republicans lose the House in November.

He dismissed suggestions that he might take responsibility, as his predecessor Barack Obama did, for mid-term losses, or view the outcome as a referendum on his presidency.

The White House counsel's office, which typically consists of a 50 attorneys, now has around 25, according to a Washington Post report published Saturday.

Trump also touted the successful confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as helping to motivate GOP voters.

"We are kind of just in awe of all the media attention".

Mr Trump has been campaigning aggressively in rallies aimed at invigorating his support base.

US Calls for "Transparent" Saudi Probe into Journalist’s Disappearance
Bob Corker, the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, said in a tweet Monday that he had spoken with the Saudi ambassador. In his last interview three days before his disappearance, Khashoggi said that he did not think he would return to Saudi Arabia.

He added: "Well, I do like congress". If Democrats take the House and pursue impeachment or investigations - including seeking his long-hidden tax returns- Trump said he will "handle it very well". The other, known as The Democratic Club, features eight Democratic presidents gathered around a table. He accused Cohen of lying when testifying under oath that the president coordinated on a hush-money scheme to buy Daniels' silence. All of the presidents who can be seen at the table, served for two terms, except Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was elected once but served two full terms after William McKinley's assassination, reported CNN.As it is claimed by Trump that he doesn't drink and never has, a Coke can be seen in front of him in the portrait while others were spotted having wine, iced tea or scotch. But in entering the deal with Cohen, prosecutors signaled that they accepted his recitation of facts and account of what occurred.

President Donald Trump has hung a painting depicting a fantasy scene of him hanging out with former Republican presidents in the White House. Trump is believed to have blamed McGahn, in addition to attorney general Jeff Sessions, for the ongoing investigation into the possible collusion between his 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation.

Trump had told reporters on Saturday that he wasn't ready to publicly name his next White House counsel, but said, "Pat's a great guy, I don't want to say, but he's a great guy".

Trump again cast doubt on climate change, suggesting, incorrectly, that the scientific community was evenly split on the existence of climate change and its causes.

He also said that he found it hard to give Trump a "genuine smile", and had to redo the painting after his first take seemed off. There are "scientists on both sides of the issue", Trump said.

"The new motto is Keep America Great", the United States president said. "So no, I'm definitely running".
