Trump hires Kansas native Ty Cobb as special counsel

Donald Trump Jr. gives a thumbs up beside his father Donald Trump after presidential debate in Hempstead New York

Trump, who blasted the polls as "just about the most inaccurate poll around election time!", now boasts the lowest approval ratings of any American president during the first half year in the past 70 years.

Nearly half of the USA population, 48 percent, thinks the country's standing in the world has deteriorated with the Trump presidency, while 27 percent say the country's standing is stronger.

Ty Cobb, a veteran Washington lawyer, is joining President Donald Trump's legal team to coordinate the response to the expanding investigation into possible Trump campaign collusion with Russia's election interference, reflecting a growing sense among West Wing officials that the president's private lawyer, Marc E. Kasowitz, can not handle the job alone.

The U.S. Secret Service on Sunday denied a suggestion from President Donald Trump's personal lawyer that it had vetted a meeting between the president's son and Russian nationals during the 2016 campaign.

U.S. President Donald Trump has named attorney Ty Cobb as an in-house "special counsel" for the White House, a statement said Saturday.

Ferré said this week would start with a showcase of USA products from all 50 states on Monday, a proclamation from President Trump on Wednesday about the importance of making products in America and his participation Saturday in the commissioning of the USS Gerald R. Ford in Newport News, Virginia, an aircraft carrier President Trump visited in March. Kasowitz apologised after emails of the conversation were made public.

Fans are celebrating the news as Turner opened up about how she deals with having a relationship in the eyes of the media. And the reality of this impending war that's coming is very, very real for her for many reasons.

Products made in America and produced by companies from all 50 states will be exhibited today on the South Lawn.

But the main issue, a person close to Trump said, was proximity. Great to see you, David.

"With Mr. Kushner, we have not one, not two, but three examples where he forgot meetings with Russians and has had to go back and amend his disclosure forms".

Some Trump allies are concerned that the president's biggest legal liability isn't the suspicion about his campaign's possible collusion with the Russian government but rather obstruction of justice charges related to his response to the investigation, including his tweets and his decision to fire FBI director James Comey.

The White House will continue with its theme weeks into August.
