Trump Assails Left’s Court-Packing Scheme, Social Media Bias

President Donald Trump on Tuesday criticized calls by some Democrats and liberals for packing the Supreme Court with more justices and endorsed changes to make social media “fair” to  conservative voices.

Trump hosted a visit by Brazil’s new president, Jair Bolsonaro, to the White House, where they held a joint press conference in the Rose Garden.
