President Donald J. Trump will speak in Orlando this Monday

With the deputy attorney general in tow, President Donald Trump is set to talk about policing and border security to police chiefs from around the world gathered in Florida.

"The crime spree is a awful blight on that city, and we'll do everything possible to get it done", Trump said. The same day, Trump and Rosenstein spoke by phone while the president was at an United Nations conference in NY.

As the plan was taking shape, Rosenstein went to the White House expecting he would be fired but wound up staying in his job.

The deputy attorney general oversees special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian election interference and links between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

"Rudy Giuliani when he was mayor of New York City had a very strong program of stop and frisk, and it went from an unacceptably risky city in one of the safest cities in the country, and I think the safest big city in the country". Their meeting two weeks ago was postponed amid the Supreme Court nomination hearings. Rosenstein said he never pursued recording the President and denied any suggestion he advocated for Trump's removal. The official who described Rosenstein's plans was not authorized to speak publicly about the trip and requested anonymity. He survived again on Monday.


Trump was also asked about musician Taylor Swift, who expressed her desire over the weekend to vote for Democrat Phil Bredesen over Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., in Tennessee's Senate race. "She's leading now substantially, which she should", Trump said.

And House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., told reporters late last month that he hoped the deputy AG "stays in place".

Critics predicted disaster, but Gotham's murder rate continued to fall even as cops cut back on stops - a point Hizzoner hammered home in a tweet after Trump spoke. The documents reportedly chronicle conversations in which Rosenstein discussed the idea of secretly recording Trump for the objective of invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.

Last month, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., subpoenaed the memos and materials belonging to McCabe as part of their ongoing joint investigation into decisions "made and not made" by the Justice Department and the FBI during the 2016 election.

The president mentioned Rosenstein during his speech, thanking him for traveling with him. Don't hit their head, I said, 'You can take the hand away, OK?' " he added.
