Trump’s new meat rule may send unsafe pork to American families – WATCH

The new system will speed up the processing lines and reduce the number of inspectors.

ALBERT LEA, Minnesota — America’s food inspectors are warning that “unsafe” pork is likely making it to consumers under a change in rules for meat inspection.

That change is now set to roll out nationwide to plants that process more than 90 percent of the pork Americans eat.

“The consumer’s being duped,” Food Safety and Inspection Service inspector Jill Mauer told NBC News. “They believe that it actually is getting federally inspected when there’s no one there to even watch or do anything about anything.”

BREAKING: Robert C. O’Brien becomes new National Security Adviser, Trump Announces

BREAKING: President Trump to Make State Sec. Mike Pompeo Also Replace John Bolton as National Security Adviser

Washington (CNN)Just one day after President Donald Trump dismissed national security adviser John Bolton, administration officials are discussing the possibility of replacing Bolton with his chief rival, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Under this scenario, the country’s top diplomat would absorb the national security adviser role and do both jobs, according to a senior administration official and a source familiar with the possibilities.

That would make Pompeo the second person in history to have both jobs at the same time. The first, Henry Kissinger, was already President Richard Nixon’s national security adviser when he was appointed secretary of state in 1973, and filled both roles for two years.
