Trump's private notes on impeachment and Democrat 'achomlishments' caught on camera
Donald Trump's private notes on how to respond to the escalating threat of impeachment proceedings have been revealed in a photo taken moments before he addressed reporters outside the White House. The image, taken by Washington Post photographer Jabin Botsford, shows a list of talking points scrawled in felt tip pen on a sheet of A4 paper. The president apparently used the notes as an aid during a hastily arranged press conference in the Rose Garden on Wednesday afternoon in which he railed against the Mueller report and the possibility of impeachment. "They want to impeach me over acts that they did," the document reads, in reference to Democrats who Mr Trump has repeatedly and falsely claimed colluded with Russia. It continues: "Dems have no achomlishments (sic) I'm going to keep working for the American people." Elsewhere Mr Trump quotes House speaker Nancy Pelosi's claim earlier in the day during a discussion with colleagues that the president had "engaged in a cover-up". The press conference, which amounted to 10-minute diatribe by Mr Trump, came moments after the president stormed out of a bipartisan White House infrastructure meeting with Ms Pelosi and Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer.. Mr Trump said he told the Democratic leadership he would no longer work with the party until all investigations against him had been closed. Trump notes captured by @jabinbotsford: "They want to impeach me over acts that they did" "Dems have no achomlishmen

Trump administration halts Harriet Tubman $20 bill
Donald Trump's administration has delayed production on a newly-redesigned $20 bill featuring Harriet Tubman, citing counterfeit issues.The bill was scheduled to be unveiled next year during the 100-year anniversary of the 19th Amendment. Tubman, who escaped slavery and later became a prominent abolitionist who rescued other enslaved people using the Underground Railroad, was announced in 2016 as the next face of the bill. US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced the delay on Wednesday during a hearing with the House Financial Services Committee."The primary reason we have looked at redesigning the currency is for counterfeiting issues," he said in response to questioning from Democrat Ayanna Presley. "Based upon this, the $20 bill will now not come out until 2028."Mr Mnuchin noted the $10 and $50 bill would still come out with their new features as planned before the new $20 bill can go into effect. Ms Pressley shot back at Mr Mnuchin on Twitter over the delay in redesigning the bill, writing, "People other than white men built this country.""[Secretary Mnuchin] agrees, yet he refuses to update our currency," she continued.Tubman was selected as the next face of the bill after Americans across the country took part in a 10-month public input process. In announcing the decision to select her as the next face, former Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said "The decision to put Harriet Tubman on the new $20 was driven by thousands of responses we received from Americans young and old.""I have been particularly struck by the many
