President Trump says that Jewish people who vote Democrat are either have "a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty." The President made the remark Tuesday as he criticized Democrats for supporting Congresswomen Ilhan [[ ILL-han ]] Omar and Rashida Tlaib [[ rah-SHEE-duh tah-LEEB ]] after Israel blocked them from traveling to the country last week. He said Michigan's Tlaib has badmouthed Israel, adding that Minnesota's Omar is "a disaster for Jewish people."        President Trump says the U.S. economy isn't close to recession. Speaking at the White House Tuesday, Trump says he thinks the word recession is "inappropriate." Trump continued his attacks on the Federal Reserve Board and said if it would do its job, the economy would see "growth like never before."        The U.S. troops deployed to the U.S.-Mexico border will be given the Armed Forces Service Medal. That honor is awarded to service members who take part in a military operation with significant activity, but in which they encounter no foreign armed threats. Soldiers were first deployed to the border in April 2018 to assist border agents.       A federal judge in Chicago is delaying a decision on the city's lawsuit against former "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett until October. The City of Chicago is suing Smollett for 130-thousand-dollars in police overtime and other expenses after state prosecutors made the decision to drop charges against Smollett for filing a false police report. The actor was initially charged with staging a racist and homophobic attack against himself earlier this year.       At least three people are injured after a shooting yesterday near Clark Atlanta University in Georgia. Police say two people were shot and another has a graze wound. All were taken to the hospital alert and breathing.        Charges are being dismissed against the man who allegedly tried stealing an Oscar. Terry Bryant was caught on camera stealing Frances McDormand's Oscar for Best Actress after the 2017 Academy Awards ceremony wrapped up. TMZ is reporting that McDormand didn't want to cooperate with investigators, so a judge dismissed the case.
