Democrats on Monday will launch an "abuse of power" investigation that could be easily transformed into an even more serious process, with an expansive demand for documents from Trump's government, his family and even his real estate empire.

Trump also touched on various other topics, from Robert Mueller's investigation to America's recent economic successes, the border wall situation, and trade negotiations with China.

President Donald Trump speaks at the CPAC convention in Oxon Hill, Md., on March 2, 2019.

The president later discussed his national emergency declaration and how some Republicans have said they're anxious about the precedent it sends to future Democratic presidents, but Trump said what's he's anxious about is murderers, cartels, drugs, and human traffickers coming into the U.S.

He also took a lengthy detour back to the inauguration, claiming that an enormous if not unprecedented crowd showed up, contrary to the thorough video and photo coverage that showed otherwise.

The second meeting between Trump and the DPRK leader Kim Jong Un, in Vietnam, was cut short after they failed to reach a deal on the extent of sanctions relief the DPRK would get in exchange for steps to give up its nuclear program.

US closes Jerusalem consulate, demoting Palestinian mission
Embassy to Israel on Monday, the State Department said, a planned merger that has angered Palestinian leadership. The U.S. consulate in Jerusalem, which serves Palestinians, will be absorbed into the new U.S.

The remarks were met with backlash from both Republican and Democrat lawmakers, with Warmbier's parents releasing a statement saying they held Kim and his regime responsible. And I'm pleased to see that Mr. Nunez who and I- he and I have profound disagreements about many things are in agreement on one thing the report and the evidence needs to be provided to Congress. "Please!'" Trump said in a mocking tone. "There's no collusion, so now they morph into, "Let's inspect every deal he has done. We're going to go into his finances, we're going to check his deals, we're going to check" - These people are sick". We're going to check his deals. "We're going to check...' - these people are sick".

"Ladies and gentlemen, he took a hard punch in the face for all of us", Trump said.

Cohen continues his closed-door testimony before the House Intelligence Committee this week. The special counsel team has been looking into possible crimes committed by the president or his associates, with a particular focus on whether or not they colluded with Russian interests during the presidential election of 2016.

Mueller is reportedly due to deliver his final report on the investigation into possible collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign to the attorney general soon.

Michael Cohen looks on as his lawyer Lanny Davis walks behind him as he testifies before the House Oversight and Reform Committee in the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC on February 27, 2019.
