Over the course of the last month, President Donald Trump told four American congresswomen of color to "go back" to their countries, called a black congressman who fought in the civil rights movement a "racist," and most recently, claimed that black CNN anchor Don Lemon was "too dumb (stupid) to understand" the concept of neutrality.

Yet he continues to claim that he's the least racist person in the world. He said it to reporters outside the White House earlier this week and tweeted it this morning while on his tirade against Don Lemon.

After House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sent a letter to President Donald Trump suggesting he postpone his January 29 State of the Union until after the government reopened, few expected the President not to retaliate with his trademark vindictiveness.

President Donald Trump on Thursday doubled-down on his threat to declare a national emergency at the southern border as he desperately tried to keep his campaign promise to build a border wall with Mexico.

"If this doesn't work out, probably I will do it, I would almost say definitely," Trump said. "This is a national emergency."

White House advisor Kellyanne Conway delivered a furious diatribe to CNN White House Correspondent Jim Acosta after he questioned if President Donald Trump would tell the truth in his first Oval Office address tonight.

The exchange got particularly heated when Acosta reminded Conway of her use of the term "alternative facts"—a gaffe that went viral in the days following Trump's inauguration and grew to characterize the administration's tactics throughout the ensuing term.

The White House on Monday wrote to CNN's Jim Acosta to inform him that they would be reinstating his "hard pass" to grant him access to the White House press events, and also indicated that it would impose four new rules on all White House correspondents.

"Having received a formal reply from your counsel to our letter of November 16, we have made a final determination in this process: your hard pass is restored," the White House wrote to Acosta. "Should you refuse to follow these rules in the future, we will take action in accordance with the rules set forth above. The President is aware of this decision and concurs."
