Since last summer, Trump's staff have changed their philosophy on his vacation. When Trump unwound last year at his Bedminster golf club or at his Mar-a-Lago estate, his senior staff often scrambled to fill his time — planning events and scheduling golf games with people who might engage him in productive conversation. They feared he would live-tweet his favorite TV shows, setting off national and geopolitical firestorms (remember the Obama wiretap classic?).
At Scripps Pier in San Diego, the surface water reached the highest temperature in 102 years of records, 78.8 degrees.
Palm Springs had its warmest July on record, with an average of 97.4 degrees. Death Valley experienced its hottest month on record, with the average temperature hitting 108.1. Park rangers said the heat was too much for some typically hardy birds that died in the broiling conditions.
Wells Fargo apologized for the error and said in a statement that it is "providing remediation" to customers whose mortgages were affected, according to CNN.
In the high-school parking lot, Colston L. of Columbus was one of a number of vendors hawking Trump merchandise. Colston, who only gave his last initial, said since arriving at 9 a.m. Saturday, he sold about 300 "Make America Great Again" hats at $10 each in about 9 hours. Colston said this was his first time selling Trump merchandise -- he answered a Craigslist ad earlier in the week and agreed to sell the hats, earning 20 percent of whatever he makes.
