money, the wealthy when they get tax cut and they grow the business they will hire more people they purchase plants and equipment i know president trump is getting beat up on with canada but he is trying to keep business growing in the united states, apparently it looks bad for the small gain the beginning but the small guy will benefit as time goes on. >> thank you so much for your time today. president trump lashing out on twitter about the injunction issued yesterday on his century city order the president wrote first the ninth circuit rules against the ban now it hits again ridiculous rulings see you in the supreme court. it was a federal judge from a lower court that put the executive order on hold, us district judge from california rules the president has no authority to put conditions of his own on spending approved by

people would apply for law enforcement jobs if day care wasn't an issue, those who spoke today agreed. >> many local companies provide or subsidized childcare to attract top-tier employees, we want to uphold the standard as well. >> in this case a sheriff would hire a nonprofit to run the day care like these department headquarters. the budget proposal calls for $200,000 to prepare the site and $500,000 annually to run the program. >> i am so excited about it i think it will be a huge benefit , we can do it at a reduced cost. >> if successful, the program could expand to other county employees like nurses, the deputy would love to see that happen. >> if you have that day care provider that would enable you to take a little stressed off your job and a little stress
