Two weeks after special counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecutors dropped new accusations of witness tampering on him, a federal judge revoked Manafort’s current bail, which had him on house arrest.
Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s order Friday marks an end to months of attempts by Manafort to lighten his house arrest restrictions after he was charged and pleaded not guilty to foreign lobbying violations.
Sen. Lindsay Graham told CNN's Kate Bolduan that President Trump could stop the Department of Homeland Security from separating young, undocumented children from their parents when families are detained for illegally crossing the southern border.
However, Graham added that the separation policy discourages illegal immigration.
"I'm sure that people are going to be less likely to bring their kids to America if they get separated than if they lived together and get released into the country. I'm real sure about that," Graham said.
"I think he'll be challenged about his conclusion," the South Carolina lawmaker said. "I think he's a good guy. And we'll see what happens. I'll tell you better after I hear him explain why he got to where he did."
President Trump wants people to know that he feels bad for his former colleagues who are facing charges in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.
"Manafort has nothing to do with our campaign," Trump said. "But I tell you, I feel a little badly about it. They went back 12 years to get things that he did 12 years ago. Paul Manafort worked for me for a very short period of time."
"I feel badly for General Flynn. He's lost his house, he's lost his life. And some people say, 'he lied' and some people say, 'he didn't lie.' Really it turned out maybe he didn't lie," he told reporters.
Trump declined to say whether he would offer up a pardon for his former colleagues.
"I do want to see people treated fairly," he said. "That's what it's all about."
President Trump told reporters that Michael Cohen is no longer his personal lawyer.
"I haven't spoken to Michael in a long time," Trump said. "But I always liked Michael. And he's a good person."
"The children, the children can be taken care of quickly, beautifully and immediately," Trump said.
Trump said the "Democrats' law" forced that action at the border.
"The Democrats can come to us as they actually are in all fairness. We are talking to them, and they can change the whole border security," the President said.
Trump said on Fox News' "Fox and Friends" that he is not planning to sign the negotiated measure.
President Donald Trump said Friday he wants "my people" to sit up at attention as North Koreans do for dictator Kim Jong Un, later adding that he was joking.
"He's the head of the country," Trump said of Kim Friday during a live interview on Fox News' "Fox and Friends."
"And I mean he's the strong head. Don't let anyone think anything different."
Later Friday, Trump told reporters at the White House his remark was a joke. "I was kidding," he said. "You don't understand sarcasm."
