While Trump's away, 'much-needed' White House renovations begin

It reportedly costs up to $350,000 for an initial membership. But sitting presidents must be allowed to speak freely with other leaders inside the Oval Office - without the fear of leaks.

A new edition of Dan's book "Powers and Principalities" is now available in hard copy and e-book editions. And the exact same principle applies to Trump's calls.

The resort also holds a special place for the Trumps. But, can we make both candidates for president the next time around sign some sort of pledge not to make an issue of the other one going on vacation? If these calls can be leaked, any call can be leaked-and no leader dare say anything to the president of the United States that he or she would not wish to read in the news at home. The town has just 16 members on its police force and was recently approved by the Secret Service to be eligible to be reimbursed for security costs, which are expected to run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

During the 2016 campaign, Trump repeatedly promised that he would refuse to take vacation in order to keep doing the work of the American public.

Critics have knocked Trump for his frequent visits to properties he owns. Around midday, he tweeted: "Prosperity is coming back to our shores because we are putting America WORKERS and FAMILIES first".

And an empty West Wing makes technological improvements much less disruptive - just ask David Recordon, the director of White House IT in the Obama White House. I mean, I think that you've seen leaks that are done because it's an undisciplined White House.

Marines searching for three service members after Osprey 'mishap' off Australian coast
According to MSN , the U.S Marine Corps said that the incident was under investigation but would give no further comment. Three servicemen were missing, believed dead, while 23 others have been accounted for, The Herald Sun reported.

First, you'll notice that no one criticizing these leaks seems to be arguing Trump or his counterparts said anything remotely sensitive in these calls that would constitute "damage" to national security.

But another White House official later clarified to CNN that the while the President enjoys the White House residence, he has often remarked on the poor condition the West Wing is in. That gracious feature is seen for events including arrival ceremonies for foreign leaders and fun celebrations like the Easter Egg Roll.

And apparently the White House is filled with people like this - people who pretend they're there to help President Trump govern while in fact they are looking for opportunities to undermine him. "In addition to these larger structural repairs, we will be renovating the Navy Mess kitchen, the West Wing lower lobby, and the IT system, and generic cosmetic upgrades", Walters said.

Repairmen and others are expected to work around the clock to complete all the upgrades by August 21.

The Justice Department separately held a press conference Friday morning devoted to the recent wave of unauthorized disclosures and said federal prosecutors are now conducting three times as many investigations into leaks than at the end of former President Obama's administration. "The GSA teams will be working around the clock to complete these projects; they're preparing to have people here 24/7". All staff will be relocated to the EEOB as a result of this vital work.
