Editor’s Note: Everyone’s got an opinion, but who has the facts? At LibertyNation.com, we like to say, “Truth is Making a Comeback because Facts Matter.” So, each week, our editorial staff combs through the noise to bring you the highlights of what the president did and said.
Update October 28 – In announcing the takedown of high-level terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, President Trump described the US military action in detail. Saying that it was much like watching a scene from a movie, the president went through the operation with blow-by-blow specificity. Here is the riveting story and timeline of the Delta Force operation that captured the most wanted of terrorists.
October 18 – President Trump declared in a Presidential Proclamation promoting the National Character Counts Week that, “Building strong character in our youth helps provide them with a moral compass that will help them navigate life’s many challenges and decisions, and we have an obligation to set a great example for the next generation.”
October 20 – The president declared that an emergency situation exists in the Northern Mariana Islands, and that FEMA is authorized to “coordinate all disaster relief efforts which have the purpose of alleviating the hardship and suffering caused by the emergency on the local population, and to provide appropriate assistance for required emergency measures.” FEMA will have a responsibility to safeguard lives and property and to limit hardship where possible.
October 21 – Mr. Trump held a cabinet meeting in which he discussed the economy, USMCA, and Hillary Clinton. He reacted to Clinton’s latest accusations of Tulsi Gabbard being a Russian asset by saying, “Tulsi — I don’t know Tulsi, but she’s not a Russian agent. I don’t know Jill Stein. I know she likes environment. I don’t think she likes Russians. If she does like them, I know she’s not an asset. She called her an ‘asset’ of Russia. These people are sick. There’s something wrong with them.”
October 22 – As an Executive Order, the president created The President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST). The duties of PCAST shall be to “advise the President on matters involving science, technology, education, and innovation policy.

October 23 – President Trump made remarks concerning his recent decision to place sanctions on Turkey. He said, “Early this morning, the government of Turkey informed my administration that they would be stopping combat and their offensive in Syria, and making the ceasefire permanent. And it will indeed be permanent. However you would also define the word ‘permanent’ in that part of the world as somewhat questionable, we all understand that.”
October 24 – On United Nations Day, the president laid out his opinion of the UN, and suggested that they would all do better by placing national interests first. He stated: “[T]he United States has embarked on a program of national renewal — fueling economic growth through tax cuts and deregulation, fighting unfair trade, protecting individual freedoms, and standing up for sovereign borders. We call on other countries to pursue their own programs of national revitalization. The path to prosperity for each country begins at home.”
October 25 – To celebrate Diwali, the president made a speech wishing all celebrants well on their special day.
