Three Things You Need to Know on October 3rd

October 3, 2018

A new report from the New York times alleges that as a businessman, well before he became president,  Donald Trump raked in millions from his father's real estate empire through suspect tax schemes.  The Times says Trump and his siblings worked his father's fortune to earn more than 400 million dollars in the 1990s. The report says they established a sham company to disguise millions of dollars in gifts from their parents. 

Just after the White House addresses this report, President Trump spoke at a rally in Mississippi. During his speech, Trump mocked Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and her allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Ford's lawyer Michael Bromwich tweeted that Trump's words were "a vicious, vile and soulless attack." 

You may be getting a message from the president today. Law enforcement agencies are reminding people in the Denver metro area about today's nationwide test of the Wireless Emergency Alert System.  People can expect their mobile phones to go off with a loud tone and vibration.  The test is happening around 12:18 p.m. Mountain Time.  The system is being set up to send out Presidential Alerts in case of national emergencies.
