President Trump says he's taking a meeting with Denmark's prime minister off his calendar. Trump made the announcement on Twitter Tuesday, citing the Danish leader's unwillingness to discuss a potential deal for Greenland as the reason for canceling. The president was grateful for the prime minister being direct, which he says saved both countries a "great deal of expense and effort."        President Trump says some American troops will be leaving Afghanistan, but the U.S. has to maintain a presence there. Trump made those comments at the White House Tuesday. Trump says America has been more like a police force in Afghanistan but added that's not what the U.S. is supposed to be.        U.S. troops who spent time at the border between the U.S. and Mexico will be given medals for their service. Those troops will be awarded the Armed Forces Service Medal, which is given to service members who take part in a significant military operation but face no foreign armed threats. Soldiers were first assigned to the border in April of last year.       A college football quarterback is facing charges, accused of engaging in unlawful sexual conduct without consent. Demry Croft has been indicted on six counts of rape and two counts of sexual battery, all counts involving one woman. Croft played at the University of Minnesota in 2017 before transferring to Tennessee State.       Federal officials are sending millions of dollars to more than two dozen states in connection with lead-based paint hazards. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development says the grants total nearly 28-million dollars, and will be distributed to 38 different Public Housing Agencies. The money is targeted at public housing units that young children call home.
