  1. Trump Kicks Off 2020 Campaign, SpaceX Launches From Historic NASA Site and Kelly’s Immigration Preview

    Know This: Donald Trump began his 2020 re-election campaign yesterday in Florida. Elon Musk’s SpaceX launched the first private rocket — ferrying supplies to the International Space Station — from Kennedy Space Center’s historic NASA launch pad, then landed the vehicle’s first stage nearby. And Iraqi forces have begun an effort to re-take western Mosul from ISIS.

    Extremely Vetted: “This again is just a pause, until we look at a number of countries, seven in particular, and look at their vetting processes …. I can tell you right now they’re not very reliable — and find ways to vet in a more reliable way.” — U.S. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, explaining a “more streamlined” upcoming immigration executive order to replace the one stymied by federal courts.
