This morning, the President Donald Trump held a listening session with the Attorney General and the Fraternal Order of Police with Vice President Mike Pence to discuss law enforcement issues related to terrorism and inner-city violence.

The latest Trump proposal, disclosed Tuesday, would eliminate $1.2 billion in National Institutes of Health research grants, a favorite of both parties.

Trump was seated next to FOP president Chuck Canterbury.

The president pointed to the example of Chicago, where almost 700 people have been shot so far this year.

Dr John D. Gartner said Mr Trumps showed signs of "malignant narcissism", which impairs his ability to see reality. "Almost 700 more have already been shot since January of this year alone", Trump said.

Angelo said he wants to ensure that any federal resources offered get to where they are supposed to go.

Mathews' late 3 lifts Gonzaga over West Virginia
Carter and Miles led the way with 24 and 18 points respectively while senior Tarik Phillip came off of the bench to pump in 12. With just under two minutes to go, the officials decided against West Virginia and Carter getting too comfortable.

In addition to gun violence, union leaders talked with Trump about the opioid crisis and sanctuary cities, according to the Chicago Tribune. "Some of our members are anxious about losing their job for doing their job".

In a contrast with the past eight years, the nation's biggest police unions say they now have the ear of the White House.

"It's always live for me, you know unfortunately other guys make a speech and nobody cares, but for me everything's live".

Leaders of the largest police union in the United States have warned President Donald Trump that he could endanger public safety if he follows through with cuts in federal grants to immigrant "sanctuary cities", the union's director told Reuters after a White House meeting.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who was also in Tuesday's meeting, has publicly vowed to "pull back" on such federal civil rights probes of local police agencies. The Chicago Police Department was recently the focus of an investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice, which exposed a "pattern and practice of excessive force" within CPD and institutional racism.
