Here's what's happening in the world of politics today:
President Donald Trump on Paris attack: "It just never ends"
-- President Donald Trump said Thursday's terror attack in Paris reminded the world that "we have to be vigilant," after a gunman shot and killed a police officer and wounded another at the Champs-Elysees.
"Our condolences from our country to the people of France," Trump said at a news conference alongside Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni. He continued, "We have to be strong and we have to be vigilant, and I've been saying it for a long time."
Friday, the president tweeted that the attack will have an effect on the country's upcoming presidential election:
Another terrorist attack in Paris. The people of France will not take much more of this. Will have a big effect on presidential election!
Thus far, President Trump has signed 28 bills into law, 24 executive orders, 22 presidential memorandums, and 20 proclamations, according to The Washington Post.
Many of the headlines surrounding the president's actions have focused on the failure to repeal and replace the Affordable Health Care Act, or "Obamacare," and his plans to construct a wall along the U.S./Mexico border.
Friday is the president's 91st day in office.
U.S. prepares charges against WikiLeaks founder Assange
-- The Justice Department is preparing charges for the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, an official close to the matter told CNN.
Prosecutors have reportedly struggled in the past with whether the First Amendment protects Assange from charges relating to leaking sensitive information dating back years.
The department now believes they have found a way to bring charges against him.
So, Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent, and Kid Rock are having dinner at the White House...
-- Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent, and Kid Rock visited President Trump at the White House Wednesday for dinner.
But it's a picture of the three together that's making waves, not so much the visit itself.
The photo in question shows Palin, Nugent, and Kid Rock posing in front of a portrait of Hillary Clinton, which is in the White House's basement along with paintings of other first ladies.
Among the topics of discussion, the two talked about their country's roles with NATO - however, they were not on the same page.
PM Gentiloni said, "We need a stable and unified Libya. A divided country would make stability worse. The U.S. role in this is very critical."
Trump responded saying, "I do not see a role in Libya. I think the United States right now has enough roles."
New York Times apologizes for tweet about Patriots at White House
-- The New York Times issued an apology for a tweet comparing the turnout of the New England Patriots at the White House when former President Barack Obama was in office to now.
The Patriots visited with President Trump Thursday to celebrate their Super Bowl LI victory. But following the Times' tweet, the team pointed out that many of those on the stage in the previous year were seated beyond where the photo was taken this year.
President Trump, who has been publicly critical of the paper, didn't shy away from offering his thoughts on the "big lie."
Failing @nytimes, which has been calling me wrong for two years, just got caught in a big lie concerning New England Patriots visit to W.H.
