U.S. This weekend marked the three year anniversary of Donald Trump’s announcement of his presidential bid. “We need somebody that literally will take this country and make it great again,” Trump told a crowd of supporters at Trump Tower. “We can do that.” “So ladies and gentlemen, I am officially running for president of the United States,” he said. Trump followed his presidential campaign announcement with one of the most unprecedented and unique bids for office in U.S. political history, and his presidency since has been similarly distinct. Many of his statements have violated political norms and drawn ire for targeting minority groups. Here is a look at 34 notable moments since Trump entered the political world.

President Donald Trump's White House continued Monday to falsely blame Democrats for its own hardline policy of separating families and children at the border. Meanwhile, bipartisan anger at the policy continued to build on Capitol Hill. Amidst all that, here's what most members of Pennsylvania's U.S. House delegation, and its two U.S. Senators, have to say about the debate. A quick inspection will reveal a pattern.

WASHINGTON — Facing a rising tide of outrage from Democrats and some Republicans over the forced separation of migrant children and parents at the U.S.-Mexico border, President Donald Trump dug in Monday, again falsely blaming Democrats in the escalating political crisis. Democrats have turned up the pressure over the policy, and some Republicans have joined the chorus of criticism. Former first lady Laura Bush has called the policy "cruel" and "immoral" while GOP Sen. Susan Collins expressed concern about it and a former adviser to Trump questioned using the policy to pressure Democrats on immigration legislation. Trump continued to cast blame on Democrats Monday, tweeting: "Why don't the Democrats give us the votes to fix the world's worst immigration laws? Where is the outcry for the killings and crime being caused by gangs and thugs, including MS-13, coming into our country illegally?"

The 73-year-old gave his first interview since the royal wedding to ITV's "Good Morning Britain" program Monday, telling hosts Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan that he "absolutely wanted to walk my daughter down the aisle," though he was proud that Prince Charles took his place.
