North Korea To Get Time Table On Agreement Benchmarks From The U.S. -
The U.S. is indeed going to hold North Korea to its promises.
The Trump administration is planning to give North Korea a timeline to enact agreements made during the summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un. A White House official says the timeline will help the administration gauge how committed the North Korean are.
An official, speaking ahead of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis’ trip to Asia said “We’ll know pretty soon if they’re going to operate in good faith or not,” adding
During the summit in Singapore earlier this month, President Trump and Kim agreed to work toward getting rid of nuclear weapons from North Korea. The meeting was the first between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo expects to head back to North Korea soon to flesh out all the details that were discussed during the summit.
Jared Kushner: Middle East Peace Plan Is Coming Soon -

Kushner told a Palestinian newspaper in an interview published yesterday that he's ready to work with the Palestinian President on trying to reach a peace deal with Israel.

Donald Trump ratcheted up the rhetoric in the immigration debate on Sunday morning by tweeting that the U.S. "Cannot accept all of these people trying to break into our Country." He also called for migrants to be deported "immediately" without a trail.
Trump's tweet also said, "When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came. Trump failed to mention that some migrants come to America to legally seek asylum."
In another tweet, Trump said, "Our system is a mockery to good immigration policy and Law and Order," and proposed in yet another tweet that legal immigration into the U.S. should be "merit" based.
Trump's comments prompted push back from immigration advocates, including Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project. He said, "What President Trump has suggested here is both illegal and unconstitutional. Any official who has sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution and laws should disavow it unequivocally."

Former NASA astronaut Buzz Aldrin is suing his children and family foundation, claiming they are taking advantage of his trust and finances.
His children have fired back saying that Aldrin is being used by outside parties who are the real ones trying to manipulate him.

The foundation released a statement over the weekend saying that the children love and respect their father, are deeply saddened by the lawsuit but will not be commenting further.
