House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday that President Trump "has no moral authority to be talking about 9/11" after he accepted a $150,000 grant from the Bush administration meant for "small businesses" harmed by the terrorist attack.

"I was instrumental in getting funding for small business grants for victims of 9/11, for people with small businesses in the area. ... Donald Trump actually took a $150,000 grant from the Bush administration. They let him take a $150,000 grant meant for small businessmen for 40 Wall Street. He stole $150,000 from some small businessperson who could have used it to help rehabilitate himself. ... He has no moral authority to be talking about 9/11 at all."

Reality check: According to Politifact, Trump's property at 40 Wall Street was one of more than 14,000 companies to receive grants totaling $530 million after 9/11. Trump himself previously said the building did not suffer physical damages during 9/11, but it was technically eligible for the grant because of economic damages and because the company employed less than 500 people.

The big picture: Nadler was responding to the controversy over a video Trump posted on Twitter, which shows footage from 9/11 spliced in between comments from Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar that many Republicans claim downplay the terrorist attacks.

  • Nadler said that while he has had problems with some of the other remarks that Omar has made, he did not take issue with these comments, arguing that she was simply pointing out how 9/11 was used for discrimination and withdrawal of civil liberties from Muslims.

Using apps to prevent deadly police encounters

Mobile phone apps are evolving in ways that can stop rather than simply document deadly police encounters with people of color — including notifying family and lawyers about potential violations in real time.

Why it matters: As states and cities face pressure to reform excessive force policies, apps that monitor police are becoming more interactive, gathering evidence against rogue officers as well as posting social media videos to shame the agencies.

TikTok gets more time (again)

The White House is again giving TikTok's Chinese parent company more to satisfy national security concerns, rather than initiating legal action, a source familiar with the situation tells Axios.

The state of play: China's ByteDance had until Friday to resolve issues raised by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. (CFIUS), which is chaired by Treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin. This was the company's third deadline, with CFIUS having provided two earlier extensions.

Federal judge orders Trump administration to restore DACA

A federal judge on Friday ordered the Trump administration to fully restore the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, giving undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children a chance to petition for protection from deportation.

Why it matters: DACA was implemented under former President Obama, but President Trump has sought to undo the program since taking office. Friday’s ruling will require Department of Homeland Security officers to begin accepting applications starting Monday and guarantee that work permits are valid for two years.
