Bill Clinton Defends Response to Monica Lewinsky Scandal

In this Monday, May 21, 2018 photo, former President Bill Clinton speaks during an interview about a novel he wrote with James Patterson, "The President is Missing", in NY.

Time has not made Bill Clinton feel worse about that Monica Lewinsky sex scandal!

"I dealt with it 20 years ago, plus", Mr Clinton said. "I'd always wanted to do it", he said.

Clinton said that he doesn't owe Monica Lewinsky a personal apology, explaining that he apologized publicly. "But I did say, publicly, on more than one occasion, that I was sorry", he said. "That's very different. The apology was public". I have gotten to know the great people of our country, and I've been humbled by the faith they've placed in me.

Trump and China: When More is Less
French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire even referred to the bloc as G6+1 as an indication of the deepening rift. Mr Trump has threatened to raise tariffs on a total of up to $US150 billion ($198 billion) of Chinese goods.

Clinton's spot as TV critic comes ahead of this week's release of The President Is Missing, an unlikely fictional collaboration with the bestselling Patterson.

"I felt awful then and I came to grips with it", responded Clinton when asked whether his views of the controversy had changed in the wake of #MeToo's social upheavals.

New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who holds Hillary Clinton's former Senate seat, said in November that President Clinton should have resigned in light of the Lewinsky affair. "Somebody should ask you these questions because of the way you formulate the questions", Clinton told Melvin.

"Clinton added that those in the "#MeToo" movement are partly "frustrated" by allegations against President Donald Trump not being acted upon or taken seriously.

"This was litigated 20 years ago", he continued.

Trump says he 'wouldn't mind' scrapping NAFTA
On Friday, Trump appeared to double down, saying Canada had treated US farmers "very poorly for a very long period of time". However, on Tuesday, Vice President Mike Pence called Canada and informed them of a sunset clause.

He griped that he'd left the White House $16 million in debt and that the media always omitted "gaping" facts to make the story work against him.

"You are giving one side, and omitting facts", he said.

Clinton's comments come amid a national reckoning with sexual harassment and assault in the workplace. He was the most powerful man on the planet.

"Do you think President Kennedy should have resigned?"

"Well, I knew it wouldn't succeed", he admitted.

United States tariffs make China trade issues more hard to resolve, European Union says
The US President has threatened to respond to any new EU trade barriers with a tax on cars produced by European automakers. Trade war fears between the United States and its trading partners have been rife since March.

"Well, I just disagree with her", Clinton told CBS on Sunday.
