In Africa today, President Obama said that he think he's a "pretty good president." So good, indeed, that if he ran for a third term, he "could win." But he cannot, he acknowledged, because it's against the law.
The undercover investigation into Planned Parenthood's involvement in the trafficking of aborted baby organs has gained so much attention in the press that Planned Parenthood's president, Cecile Richards, felt compelled to appear on ABC's This Week on Sunday to address the scandal.
Carly Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard and a Republican candidate for president, will address the Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California, on Monday evening on her foreign policy outlook. In her speech, Fiorina will discuss how as president she would broker a "new deal" with Iran, call for expanding defense spending, and address China, whom she calls "our rising adversary."
You can watch her speech live at 9 pm ET here. Fiorina's remarks as prepared for delivery are below:
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat from New York, sent out a fundraising email on Monday condemning congressional efforts to investigate Planned Parenthood's practice of harvesting and selling aborted baby organs to biotech companies.
Gillibrand writes that the congressional investigation of Planned Parenthood "makes my head explode."
Defenders of the nuclear deal with Iran are right to ask what the alternatives are to the offer that’s now on the table. What’s excessive is their confidence that the only alternative to this deal is war. In fact, the alternative is not hard to describe and is not terribly dramatic.
Asked directly by CNN's Wolf Blitzer whether she would vote to support President Obama's Iran deal, Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz demurred, saying:
"I am in the middle of really reviewing it and looking at all of the moving parts to the Iran deal. I've had many administration briefings, I've talked to experts on both sides of the deal, and I'm gonna go home and speak to my constituents who have been weighing in, and I'll reach a conclusion on what I'm gonna do with my vote once I really feel like I've been able to thoroughly review the whole deal."
Hillary Clinton was asked about new poll numbers that show the American people don't trust her. "Well, I don't like to read that, it won't surprise you to hear me say it," Clinton said with a big grin on her face.
Clinton suggested that people will see that she's a fighter as she continues to campaign. And that Americans will vote her for that reason. Clinton did not say that she thinks people might change their minds on whether they can trust her.
