STERLING, VA - FEBRUARY 2: (AFP OUT)U.S. President Donald Trump listens while participating in a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) roundtable discussion after touring the CBP National Targeting Center February 2, 2018 in Sterling, Virginia. Trump is looking to ratchet up pressure on lawmakers to consider the immigration proposal he unveiled in Tuesday's State of the Union using the visit as an opportunity to again argue his proposal would bolster the country's borders.

The President on Saturday let flow his impression of the so-called Nunes memo, which he declassified the previous day and which has been used by Republicans to claim anti-Trump bias at the FBI and Department of Justice.

In reality, the memo does not support those claims.

Trump also bragged about his rising approval rating in one poll, from Rasmussen, which has consistently scored Americans’ attitudes of him higher than other polls.

It wasn’t immediately clear who the President meant to refer to as “sacred cows.” On Friday night, Fox News host Laura Ingraham used the term to refer to the intelligence community, or “the deep state,” as she said.
