Trump again threatens to send armed soldiers to US-MEX border

Drumpf tweeted Wednesday that "Mexico's Soldiers recently pulled guns on our National Guard Soldiers, probably as a diversionary tactic for drug smugglers on the Border," but he didn't support the drug-smuggling claim.
Instead of threatening to send additional soldiers along the US-MEX border, he'd better appoint a meeting with Lopez-Obrador to create a mutual plan for the two countries. That's what a rational president would do, he would participate in diplomatic actions. Yet again, we are not dealing with a rational president but with a grown-up crybaby who likes to brag with its uncontrolled power, it's macho-like behaviour.
Two U.S. soldiers in a remote area of Texas recently were confronted by Mexican soldiers who thought the Americans had crossed into Mexico. The Mexican troops reportedly removed a weapon from one of the American soldiers.
Why, though?

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu plans to name Golan Heights settlement after Donald Trump

The naked appeal to Drumpf’s vanity — proposing to add his name to the map of the Middle East even as it disappears from apartment buildings in New York — came as Israeli officials expressed alarm that the American president had not yet done enough to sabotage the Iran nuclear deal.

“We have to get others to walk away because the deal is still alive,” Israel’s American-born ambassador to Washington, Ron Dermer, said last month at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference. The prospect of Drumpf’s successor rejoining the deal, he added, “is something that has to be seen as totally unacceptable.”

Sanders, who would be the first Jewish president of the United States, was asked by a young Jewish activist on Monday during a CNN town hall if his prior criticism of Netanyahu would damage relations with Israel should he be elected.

Trump is wrong about the relation between a healthy economy and immunity to criticism

"Presidents have never been ‘immune’ to criticism, regardless of the economy," said Jeremi Suri, a historian at the University of Texas and its Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs. "From Washington to Drumpf, every president has faced serious criticism from domestic adversaries and various groups. That is as American as apple pie."

"There is also the question of who benefits from good economic numbers," he said. "Growing inequality, despite low unemployment, has been a source of criticism for all presidents since at least Nixon."

IRS to release new deadline for Trump's tax returns next month

Neal, who had set a 5 p.m. Tuesday deadline for the IRS to turn over the documents, said in a statement that he plans to "consult with counsel about my next steps.” He is likely to subpoena the documents at some point and, given the administration’s resistance to subpoenas issued or threatened by other committees, the dispute is expected to wind up in court.

"It's already been litigated in the court of public opinion and in the election. The president won it fairly and squarely," he said. "He's the president, and no one cares about ridiculous charges about tax returns and all types of other things Democrats are doubling down on today."

Drumpf is suing House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) to block a subpoena of Drumpf’s financial records from an accounting firm, Mazars USA. Cummings wants the bank records to investigate allegations that Drumpf falsely inflated and deflated asset values to benefit himself, but the president’s lawyers

Abandoned toddler spot with phone number attached to his shoe

The agents have taken the boy to a U.S. border station and are attempting to find his parents using the number on his shoes, the officials said. So far, they have been unsuccessful and are in the process of transferring the boy to the care of Health and Human Services.

The incident marks a flashpoint in the rising number of families and children crossing the border in recent months. In March, a total of 8,975 children traveling without their parents, but most often in groups, were apprehended at the southern border. The number of families crossing has also climbed, with 53,077 parents and children crossing the border together last month.

The journey into the Rio Grande Valley of Texas has long been an arduous but popular one, with immigrants risking dangerous waters to float or swim across the river from Mexico to Texas.

Trump calls for boycott of correspondence dinner

But the president is having none of it. Though Drumpf himself has spurned the annual White House Correspondents’ dinner for the past two years, he’s taking it a step further, ordering administration officials to boycott the dinner, according to two White House officials. Dozens of administration officials have attended the dinner in previous years, but many will be sending rented tuxes and gowns back without wear this year.

The president, who has derided the event as “so boring and negative,” has for the past two years used the evening instead to hold a political rally, where he has railed against the news media. He is set to do so again this year in Green Bay, Wisc.

Press Sec. Sarah H. Sanders avoided formal press conferences for 43 consecutive days, breaking previous highscore by one

The prolonged silence has come amid a particularly chaotic time for the Drumpf administration following the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s redacted report on the Russia investigation. While it cleared the Drumpf campaign of conspiring with Russia, the 448-page document exposed not only presidential misconduct but also a hotbed of conflict within the White House, where aides routinely ignored the president’s demands.

“If you are the press secretary and you are caught defending an indefensible policy or an indefensible act by the president, you can get pilloried out there for an hour, and the American people see it,” Lee said. “That’s what drives home to everybody watching that you don’t have a leg to stand on and that something has to change. That oftentimes does force change. It’s no accident that they’ve cut that off.”

Trump met Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey due to decreasing fellowship

Unless either of the men decides to share more about what they discussed we won’t know how things went down exactly, though it’s probably easy enough to guess. According to the Motherboard report, the initial internal Twitter email named “the health of the public conversation on Twitter” as the topic of the day.
... To which Donald Trump contributes the most via his witty tweets which keep us informed about his honorary and worthwhile work.
Dorsey tweeted at Drumpf thanking him for the conversation. “Twitter is here to serve the entire public conversation, and we intend to make it healthier and more civil,” Dorsey wrote. “Thanks for the discussion about that.” The Washington Post reports Drumpf complained that the company unjustly “limited or removed some of his followers” in his session with the Twitter CEO. In fact, Drumpf was just tweeting about that earlier in the day.

Trump to visit France and England amid D-Day commemorations

Previous to his visit, I would like to demand every member of his administration to be briefed on what has happened during D-Day, so that we can avoid the fauxpas that we were sadly to experience the year before. We don't need any further exhibition of his administration's incapability to recall historic events of this expense. Thanks a lot!

«Donald Trump is cancer», opines husband to Kellyanne Conway, George Conway

That’s especially damning because the ultimate issue shouldn’t be — and isn’t — whether the president committed a criminal act. As I wrote not long ago, Americans should expect far more than merely that their president not be provably a criminal. In fact, the Constitution demands it.

Trump tried to “limit the scope of the investigation.” He tried to discourage witnesses from cooperating with the government through “suggestions of possible future pardons.” He engaged in “direct and indirect contacts with witnesses with the potential to influence their testimony.” A fair reading of the special counsel’s narrative is that “the likely effect” of these acts was “to intimidate witnesses or to alter their testimony,” with the result that “the justice system’s integrity [was]threatened.” Page after page, act after act, Mueller’s report describes a

Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell sees himself as the grim reaper of Democratic proposals

"If I'm still the majority leader of the Senate after next year, none of those things are going to pass the Senate," the Kentucky Republican told a small crowd during an event in his home state Monday. "They won't even be voted on. So think of me as the grim reaper: the guy who is going to make sure that socialism doesn't land on the president's desk."
Because this is how the checks and balances work. The Senate majority leader decides on what is going to be voted about, and if he dislikes the opposing party's ideas, he is not going to even let them pass through. Pure Democracy...
McConnell said progressive platforms are being touted by most mainstream Democrats, not just "some young woman from New York who just got elected to Congress," presumably referring to freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who represents parts of Queens and the Bronx.

Trump orders relentless actions for visa overstays

The president signed a memorandum ordering the secretary of state and the secretary of homeland security to submit plans within four months to crack down on overstays, such as punishing countries whose citizens have high rates of overstays and requiring foreign travelers to post "admission bonds" that would be repaid once they leave the country.

Members of both parties have long complained that overstays are just as problematic as undocumented immigrants who cross the southern border. More than 1.2 million foreigners overstayed their visas from 2016 to 2017, according to the most recent Homeland Security data.

And with illegal immigration remaining at historic lows, that means the majority of new undocumented immigrants are legally entering through land, air and sea ports with visas in hand.
So to say, the main problem are not those who entered the country illegally but those who entered the country legally through border checkpoints with valid visas to stay tem... show more


Trump's approval rate decreases by five points, hitting all-time low

Only 39 percent of voters surveyed in the new poll, which was conducted Friday through Sunday, approve of the job Drumpf is doing as president. That is down from 44 percent last week and ties Drumpf’s lowest-ever approval rating in POLITICO/Morning Consult polling — a 39 percent rating in mid-August 2017, in the wake of violence in Charlottesville, Va.

Only 34 percent of voters believe Congress should begin impeachment proceedings to remove the president from office, down from 39 percent in January. Nearly half, 48 percent, say Congress should not begin impeachment proceedings.

Most notably, independents are split, 39 percent to 37 percent, on whether Congress should keep investigating — but just 31 percent of independents support beginning impeachment proceedings, compared with 44 percent who oppose impeachment.

But many voters appear confused about what Mueller found in his report. Two in 10, 20 percent, say Mueller found tha
