President Trump says the media is to blame for the fallout after his controversial summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. In a tweet today, Trump insisted that the summit was a great success. He again accused the mainstream media of being fake and of being the "enemy of the people." Trump said he looks forward to a second meeting with Putin to continue serious discussions on terrorism, cyber attacks, Middle East peace and North Korea.       The President will host a "Pledge to the American Worker" event at the White House today. At a Cabinet meeting yesterday, President Trump said he will be making a "big announcement" on a workforce training initiative. He added that he wants Americans to have choices about jobs. Trump said he wants people to find jobs that they really love.        A North Texas neighborhood is being evacuated as police hunt for two suspects in a bank shooting and robbery. Fort Worth police are focusing on a house which they believe is potentially connected with what happened this morning at Veritex Bank. The house is a couple miles away from the bank where three women were shot. They're expected to survive. No word on any arrests.       Harvey Weinstein's legal counsel is claiming the disgraced movie mogul and Ashley Judd had an agreement to let him touch her. The Los Angeles Times is reporting Weinstein had a bargain that would allow him to touch Judd if she won an Academy Award in one of his films. The information was revealed as Weinstein's attorneys are looking to get a federal judge to drop Judd's defamation lawsuit against him. Judd called the incident a "mock bargain" and a way to exit the situation.        The founder of Papa John's is calling for his company to conduct an investigation into the meeting where he admits to have used the N-word. In a letter to the company's board of directors, John Schnatter said stepping down from his position in the company was a mistake. Schnatter also said during the phone call with a marketing agency, he used the N-word as a way to emphasize how much he hates racism after the agency wanted to hire rapper Kanye West to represent Papa John's.        BMW is launching a new ride-sharing service in Seattle to compete with Uber and Lyft. The program is called Reach Now. Customers can hail a car immediately or schedule a ride up to a week in advance. Trips cost two-dollars-40-cents per mile.
