Trump raised objections to 52 provisions of the law #NDAA – including four of the eight provisions dealing specifically with #Russia. The signing statement suggests he may not enforce provisions that he said raise constitutional concerns.

As passed by Congress, the defense bill attempts to tie the president's hands on Russia in a number of ways. It forbids him from using federal funds to recognize Russian control over #Crimea and bans military cooperation with Russia until Russia pulls out of Ukraine.

“Trish, you’re wrong.”

“Everyone in Denmark is working for the government, and no one wants to work," Fox anchor Trish Regan announced. “Denmark — like Venezuela — has stripped people of their opportunities."

Regan’s characterization of Denmark as a bleak nation that robs its citizens doesn’t really add up. Employment rates in Denmark are higher than in the United States. Curiously, the “no one wants to work” Danish employees are also more productive than their U.S. counterparts.
