Musicians and Donald Trump have a fraught relationship. From ordering him to stop playing their music to calling out his politics, some of the highest-profile artists in the world have aligned themselves with, but mostly against, the US president. While several prominent singers have been calling out Trump since as far back as 1989, when he was a promoter for the Rolling Stones (Keith Richards was not a fan), his time as president has prompted many more to criticise him at shows, write protest songs about him, or mock him from their social media accounts. From the end of his campaign to Kanye West meeting Trump in the Oval Office this month, here’s an extensive timeline of some of the most notable moments involving Trump and the music industry. 2016 October After months of statements expressing the Rolling Stone’s distaste at Trump using their music at his rallies, frontman Mick Jagger explains why they are unable to stop him from doing it. “When you … [Read more...] about A timeline of Donald Trump’s relationship with the music industry
opinion Jordan Harris Opinion contributor Published 12:07 p.m. UTC Aug 2, 2018 There is a certain level of respectable brilliance to the president’s self-inflicted heroism. Whether by design or ignorance, which is always impossible to tell with him, President Donald Trump does an excellent job of creating a gigantic mess, sloppily cleaning it up and then taking a self-congratulatory victory lap, proclaiming that he was the only hero capable of staving off such a disaster. Enter the trade war, which hopefully crested last week just as it was beginning. Alongside European Union leader Jean-Claude Juncker, the president announced that after months of needless flexing the two parties would return to a trade condition that we once just called "normal." Only Trump could pull this one off Naturally, many right-leaning news media outlets picked up the story and promoted the heroism of the president. This wasn’t surprising. What remains surprising is how much … [Read more...] about The ‘Summer of Economic Illiteracy,’ featuring Donald Trump and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez
THE President of the United States is the world's most colourful 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, the 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. Now 71, he boasts that he made money "the good old-fashioned way" but he first got into real estate with a "small" $1million loan from his father and helped manage the family's housing portfolio in the New York area. He took control of the company in 1971 and renamed it the Trump Organisation - shifting from residential sales in Brooklyn and Queens to swanky projects in Manhattan. The company transformed the rundown Commodore Hotel into the Grand Hyatt before developing the most famous Trump landmark, the 68-storey Trump … [Read more...] about How old is Donald Trump, how much is the US President’s net worth, when did he and Melania get married and how many children does he have?
Christopher Buckley 30 June 2018 9:00 AM 30 June 2018 9:00 AM Share Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Email Whatsapp Americans traumatised by their current president could be forgiven for thinking that his demand for a ‘space force’ was about protecting the country from aliens. Aliens, that is, of extraterrestrial persuasion, not the ones currently hurling themselves against the southern border. What, really, is implausible these days? As baseball savant Yogi Berra said when told that a Jewish woman had been elected mayor of Dublin: ‘Only in America.’ But as it turned out, Donald Trump’s demand to have a new sixth branch of the US armed services is about protecting America’s satellites and cyber capabilities. A worthy goal. Per the President’s custom, he didn’t inform the White House that he was going to issue his decree. The citizenry may be traumatised, but what must life be like for his poor chief of staff, General … [Read more...] about Donald Trump’s Space Force isn’t so stupid
