President Donald Trump surprised members of Congress earlier this week when he abruptly canceled the annual Congressional Picnic.
Basically, the president felt like they didn’t deserve it.
“We are going to cancel and postpone tomorrow’s congressional picnic,” Trump said. “It doesn’t feel right to have a picnic for Congress when we are doing something very important.”
He added, “It didn’t feel exactly right to me.”
However, the preparation of the food had already begun when Trump made the announcement.
The menu included "ribeye steaks, spinach, coleslaw, quinoa, black beans and pies."
Rather than let Congress throw a fancy picnic, President Trump's administration decided to feed all of the food to "Walter Reed hospital patients, caregivers and employees at the Warrior and Family Center in Bethesda," Bloomberg's Jennifer Jacobs reported.
That means America's military heroes are going to be eating very good.
President Trump has called on Democrats to stop "obstructing" and work with Republicans to pass comprehensive immigration reform. Earlier this week, the president signed an executive order to keep immigrant families together. Now it's lawmakers' turn to do their job.
"We must maintain a Strong Southern Border. We cannot allow our Country to be overrun by illegal immigrants as the Democrats tell their phony stories of sadness and grief, hoping it will help them in the elections," Trump tweeted on Friday. "Obama and others had the same pictures, and did nothing about it!"
