President Donald Trump premiered his new fleet of Cadillac presidential limousines for his appearance at the UN General Assembly in New York City.
It is only fitting that the stylish New Yorker president — whose tie-below-the-belt fashion has been adopted by his Secret Service agents — would roll into town in a Cadillac.
The new cars in his entourage added to the flair of President Trump’s speech, in which he smacked down the false song of globalism and stressed America’s commitment to patriotism at home.
Here is Trump rolling in style:
One of the biggest visual changes on the new limo is that the windshield is now almost flush with the roof; previous-gen presidential limousines had a very pronounced metal top that rose above the edges of the glass surfaces, buying the interior a little more headroom. The shortened rear overhang and the lifted rear bumper on the new limo were likely developed to ease reverse egress out of cargo planes since the trunk itself is not really used to carry luggage and doesn’t play a functional role in the everyday use of the limousine. In fact, both overhangs have been shortened a bit, while the limo wears a grille texture that we saw debut on the 2016 Cadillac Escala concept car…
The two limousines (there will be around a dozen built altogether) make their debut during UN week in New York City, still Cadillac’s hometown, at least for the time being. A number of other modified Cadillac vehicles are in use by the Secret Service, and it is expected that the outgoing fleet of presidential limousines, built over the last 10 years, will be in service for some time as backup vehicles.

Appeals Court Refuses to Expunge Joe Arpaio’s Contempt Conviction After Presidential Pardon
A judge isn’t happy about the pardon.
A federal appeals court is refusing to expunge former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpario’s contempt of court conviction, after the sheriff was granted a presidential pardon by President Trump.
Such a legal move is rare if not unprecedented for the recipient of a presidential pardon. Usually federal and state court systems dismiss the convictions of people granted presidential pardon.
Arpaio was convicted of contempt of court in 2017 for refusing to change the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department’s practices after a judge mandated that the agency cease immigration raids.
Three judges of the liberal San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court upheld a ruling from a lower circuit court refusing to expunge the legal record of Arpaio’s conviction. The move sets new legal precedent for a recipient of a presidential pardon.
Arpaio was a frequent target of Eric Holder and the Obama administration, often coming under intense DOJ scrutiny for the practices of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department.
Arpaio ran for the United States Senate in 2018, coming in third in the Republican Primart behind Martha McSally and Kelli Ward. He’s now running for his old position as Maricopa County Sheriff once more at the ripe age of 87.
In any case, presidential pardons have traditionally resulted in dismissal of criminal convictions in federal and state courts. It’s hard to think of the 9th Circuit’s decision to maintain the conviction as anything more than a political slight to President Trump.
