The golf-loving president may be at his most natural and carefree on the links, with an array of politicians, celebrities and family members. In June 2017, Bob Corker extended a golf-club shaped olive branch to an angry U.S. President Donald Trump. Corker, then a Tennessee Republican senator, had recently enraged Trump by saying his administration was in a “downward spiral.” Hoping to de-escalate, his aides asked the White House to broker a peacemaking meeting between the men in one of Trump’s most natural habitats: the golf course. An outing was soon arranged at Trump’s Northern Virginia course, where the pair were joined on a warm Sunday by the former star NFL quarterback Peyton Manning and Andrew Giuliani, a public liaison assistant at the White House and the son of Trump personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani. Over an 18-hole, 4½-hour round that featured a clubhouse lunch, Corker and Trump, who sported a red "Make America Great Again" hat, chatted amiably … [Read more...] about Inside Donald Trump’s hidden life on the golf course

THE FIRST time Lexington thought of Donald Trump at WrestleMania this week was when, to the fading strains of “America the Beautiful”, a helicopter flyover churned the night sky over the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. Was the president about to make a surprise reappearance at the annual WWE sports-entertainment extravaganza to which he owes so much of his political method? The second time, well into the seven-hour grapplefest, was as the veteran star-wrestler “Triple H” was ripping out his grudge-rival’s nose-rings with a pair of pliers. That was not only a reflection on how Mr Trump treats his cabinet. Paul Levesque, as Triple H was originally known, these days spends most of his time as a senior executive in the billion-dollar WWE business, having married into the McMahon clan that owns it. In reality-bending WWE style, he first married and divorced Stephanie McMahon, daughter of WWE founder Vince, fictitiously. This was part of a story-line in which she … [Read more...] about Donald Trump is a pro wrestler masquerading as commander-in-chief
THE President of the United States is the world's most flamboyant and publicised billionaire. Here's the lowdown on all things Donald Trump. Where did Donald Trump grow up and was his family wealthy? Donald Trump was born on June 14, 1946, and was fourth child of real estate tycoon Fred Trump. The Trump family was wealthy and lived in a mansion in the Queens area of New York. As a 13-year-old, Donald was sent to a military academy after he started misbehaving at school.

0 Have your say Many Americans think that the only national emergency is Trump himself, writes former Scottish First Minister Henry McLeish. There is never a dull day in Trump’s America. The president’s decision to declare a national emergency to bypass Congress and build his wall had all his signature themes of delusion and confusion but also on display were the much deeper issues of authoritarianism, racism and nativism.The wall will never be built. Trump knows that. Instead the wall will become a metaphor, a symbol, a unifying theme for his base. The idea, not the reality; the struggle, not the outcome, bears all the hallmarks of the Trump 2020 strategy. This gets to the heart of understanding Trump. He campaigns but doesn’t govern.At a rally in El Paso, Texas, on the southern border, Trump talked about finishing the wall, not building the wall. All lies. Not an inch of the wall has been built. His supporters … [Read more...] about Donald Trump plays the victim as knows his wall won’t be built
0 Have your say Despite the separation of church and state in the US Constitution, Donald Trump – wanted as president by God, according to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders – is making religion ever more important in American politics, writes Henry McLeish. The role of religion in American politics continues to belie the ideal of the separation of church and state contained in the First Amendment of the US Constitution: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”Adopted in December 1791, as one of the signature themes of the founding fathers and the result of mass immigration, including the influx of both Puritans and Presbyterians from Britain, the United States today boasts a population where a remarkable 65 per cent say religion plays an important part of their daily lives. The figures range from more than 80 per … [Read more...] about Unchristian Donald Trump cuts deal for power with evangelicals – Henry McLeish
