Queen Elizabeth Greets President Trump at Start of State Visit

President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump “arrived at Buckingham Palace Monday just after noon, local time, to meet Queen Elizabeth,” Maria Puente reports in USA Today.

“The queen greeted President Trump after he ascended the palace stairs with Prince Charles at the West Terrace of Buckingham Palace. Melania walked behind with Duchess Camilla. The queen wore a big smile as she greeted the president with a handshake.”

President Trump’s three-day state visit to the U.K. is timed to coincide with the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

Trump and the queen offered toasts to enduring friendship and values between the two nations, followed by their respective national anthems.

The queen was her usual sincere but restrained self in her toast speech; Trump was much more effusive, especially about her: He called her “that great, great woman.”

“Mr President, as we look to the future, I am confident that our common values and shared interests will continue to unite us. Tonight we celebrate an alliance that has helped to ensure the safety and prosperity of both our peoples for decades, and which I believe will endure for many years to come,” she concluded.

“On behalf of all Americans, I offer a toast to the eternal friendship of our people, the vitality of our nations, and to the long, cherished and truly remarkable reign of Her Majesty the Queen,” Trump concluded.  

The queen’s chefs usually lay on a sumptuous meal, with many ingredients and produce sourced from the royal estates. The guests dined on lamb, halibut with watercress mousse, strawberry sable with lemon verbena cream, assorted fresh fruits, and coffee and petit fours.

The queen also presented the Trumps with gifts, according to The Associated Press: For him, a first edition of Winston Churchill’s “The Second World War,” the World War II-era prime minister’s classic literary account of the war effort that united Britain and the United States, plus a three-piece Duofold pen set using an obsidian design that was made exclusively for the queen.

For the first lady, the queen picked a specially commissioned silver box with a handcrafted enamel lid.

Earlier, the presidential couple toured historic Westminster Abbey, where British royals are crowned, wed and buried, as the first day of the Trumps’ state visit to Britain continued Monday.

The Trumps’ visit to the Abbey also included a solemn laying of a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior, first interred in 1920 in the central aisle of the Abbey.

President Donald Trump is greeted by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace on June 3, 2019 in London, England. President Trump's three-day state visit will include lunch with the Queen, and a State Banquet at Buckingham Palace, as well as business meetings with the Prime Minister and the Duke of York, before travelling to Portsmouth to mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

The presidential couple were accompanied by Prince Andrew, Duke of York, second son of Queen Elizabeth II; he will be their main escort during three days of hobnobbing with the royals during the state visit, only the third offered to an American president by the queen during her 67 years on the throne.

Next, the Trumps arrived to take tea with Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla Duchess of Cornwall, at Clarence House, the Prince of Wales’ London home.

The Trumps arrived at Buckingham Palace Monday just after noon, local time, to meet Queen Elizabeth and be treated to the kind of royal pomp-and-ceremony the president loves receiving and the British love staging.

Kicking off Monday’s visit, the Trumps arrived by helicopter, which touched down in the gardens of the palace.

For the occasion, Trump wore a navy suit with a bright periwinkle blue tie. His wife twinned with the duchess – both wore white.

Melania Trump wore a Dolce & Gabbana knee-length skirt suit with a contrasting navy collar, belt and shoes that coordinated with her wide-brimmed boater-style hat by one of her favorite designers, Herve Pierre, according to her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham.

Trump pays respect to Virginia shooting victims during church service

“President Trump was in Virginia Sunday for a special church service praying for victims of the Virginia Beach mass shooting,” Mark Moore and Lee Brown report in the New York Post. “Trump stood behind pastor David Platt as he offered a prayer for the 12 killed in Friday’s mass shooting.”

The president was there to “visit with the Pastor and pray for the victims and community of Virginia Beach,” said Judd Deere, the White House’s deputy press secretary.

Trump arrived at about 2:20 p.m. and his motorcade left a little over 15 minutes later.

DeWayne Craddock, 40, slaughtered 12 at Virginia Beach’s municipal building Friday — just hours after quitting his job as a civil engineer.

Trump administration gives final approval for year-round E15 use

“The Trump administration Friday announced approval of year-round access to gasoline with higher blends of ethanol, a move that could boost corn prices for farmers and lower costs for drivers,” Donnelle Eller writes in the Des Moines Register. “The decision is welcome news for farm groups that have pushed for expanded consumer access to gasoline with 15% ethanol.”— called E15 — saying it’s needed to drive demand for the renewable fuel and corn, typically used to make ethanol.

The administration had until June 1 to approve the rule to open the door for E15 use this summer.“This is positive news for rural Iowa at a time when we can really use it,” said Monte Shaw, executive director of the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association.”E15 will provide an immediate boost for ethanol demand, and the long-term potential is quite significant,” he said.

The higher ethanol blend had been banned in the summer, a rule that the ethanol industry said was outdated. Gasoline with 10% ethanol is now blended in almost every U.S. gallon of gas.Year-round access to E15 could add demand for 100 to 200 million bushels of corn in the short-run, and up to 2 billion bushels over time, experts say.

Poet, a South Dakota company with seven Iowa plants, said E15 adoption could drive the production of 7 billion gallons of biofuels.”It will be a boon to the rural economy in Iowa, especially considering continued trade uncertainty,” said U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican. “Banning this higher blend of ethanol for part of the year never made any sense.”

The Trump administration’s ongoing trade wars with China, Mexico, Canada and other countries have disrupted important markets for Iowa and U.S. corn, soybeans, pork and dairy, among other farm goods.

The president said last week the federal government will spend $16 billion in a second round of trade aid to help offset loses farmers experienced from trade disputes. It comes on top of $12 billion in trade aid provided last year.

Why Jerry Nadler insists on wasting everyone’s time

“Mueller and his predecessors spent two years investigating, with full cooperation from the White House. Nadler knows perfectly well that his ‘investigations’ won’t find anything new,” the New York Post editorial board writes. “It’s nothing but an elaborate stall, and Mueller is entirely right to not waste his time in a pointless, political dog-and-pony show.”

“We will have Mr. Mueller’s testimony,” Nadler told WNYC, and on TV, too. The problem, he claims, is that most people haven’t read the report, and Team Trump is “lying” about what it says.

Funny: Nadler specifically cites Attorney General William Barr as a liar, yet Mueller on Wednesday went out of his way to call Barr honorable. A day later, Mueller and Barr issued a joint statement insisting they have no conflicts about the report.

Anyway, what’s Nadler going to do if he does manage to force Mueller into testifying? Make him do a live reading of the report? Even MSNBC viewers will doze off.

The New York Democrat is stuck because, as he also told WNYC, “The American people right now do not support” impeachment. But his party’s left wing is howling for it, as are many of its presidential candidates.

To appease the left, he’s pretending that he’s going to educate the public about Trump’s evil: “We have to get the facts out. We have to hold a series of hearings, we have to hold the investigations.”

Mueller and his predecessors spent two years investigating, with full cooperation from the White House. Nadler knows perfectly well that his “investigations” won’t find anything new. Nor will the public pay much attention to an endless, selective reading of Mueller’s report — no matter how much the Trump-hating media plays it as news.

All Nadler’s going to do is make a lot of noise to appease the left and avoid admitting the truth. It’s nothing but an elaborate stall, and Mueller is entirely right to not waste his time in a pointless, political dog-and-pony show.

Sheriffs on the front lines of the surging illegal immigration crisis are pushing back against pro-sanctuary advocates who claim helping Immigration and Customs Enforcement detain criminals is a budget-buster that also hurts community relations with legal immigrants.

Instead, law enforcement officials urging expansion of the ICE cooperation program dubbed “287(g)” for its section in the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act said the agency pays for most of the costs, and legal immigrants are happy to see undocumented immigrants removed from their communities.

Frederick County, Md., Sheriff Chuck Jenkins, whose department is in the controversial program, said it has become a “dirty phrase” but is one that is needed because the crisis is pushing undocumented immigrants deeper into the nation.
