Ivanka Trump, daughter of the US president and wife of the Middle East “expert” Jared Kushner – he who has supposedly produced a Middle East “peace plan” to be revealed after Benjamin Netanyahu wins the Israeli elections – has just given her support to a regime which has locked up women political prisoners, "disappeared" others, and whose army forcibly carried out virginity tests on female protestors during the Tahrir Square revolution. Well, what more do you expect from the Trump menagerie? Her tweeted praise, encouragement and support went to Egypt – and especially to its president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, who gained a presidential victory last year with the support of 97.08 per cent of the Egyptian electorate. Ivanka obviously drew the necessary conclusions: that this was a free and fair election and showed only how much President Sisi’s people loved him after his military coup against Egypt’s first … [Read more...] about Opinion: Ivanka told us everything we need to know about Donald Trump’s meeting with el-Sisi

Maureen Groppe and Ledyard King and Eliza Collins and Michael Collins USA TODAY Published 8:15 PM EDT Mar 25, 2019 WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump scored a huge political victory after special counsel Robert Mueller absolved him of conspiring with Russia to swing the 2016 election. The big question is whether the president can use the special counsel's finding to boost his re-election prospects. Trump is already harvesting early fruits of his victory. The outcome of the nearly two-year investigation removes a cloud hanging over his 2020 race and frees up time for him to focus on his policy agenda. Congressional Republicans may be less likely to distance themselves from him. Congressional Democrats have to rethink how hard to go after Trump in their own investigations. “My advice to the president for whatever it’s worth is you’re probably stronger today than you’ve been anytime in your presidency," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., … [Read more...] about Mueller report: Does Donald Trump’s victory give him a boost for 2020?
WASHINGTON – In a damning depiction of Donald Trump, the president’s former lawyer on Wednesday cast him as a racist and a con man who used his inner circle to cover up politically damaging allegations about sex, and who lied throughout the 2016 election campaign about his business interests in Russia. Michael Cohen, who previously pleaded guilty to lying to Congress, told lawmakers that Trump had advance knowledge and embraced the news that emails damaging to Hillary Clinton would be released during the campaign. But he also said he had no “direct evidence” that Trump or his aides colluded with Russia to get him elected, the primary question of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Cohen, shaking off incessant criticism from Republicans eager to paint him as a felon and liar, became the first Trump insider to pull back the curtain on a version of the inner workings of Trump’s political and business operations. He likened the president to a … [Read more...] about Michael Cohen assails Preisdent Donald Trump before Congress
ANDREW McCabe has made explosive claims about Donald Trump, saying that the president trusted Putin over his own US intelligence over North Korea. But what else has he said and how did Donald Trump react? Here's what we know. What did Andrew McCabe say about Donald Trump? FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe claimed that Trump said he trusted Vladimir Putin over his own US intelligence regarding North Korean ballistic missiles. McCabe said an FBI official informed him that Trump was told by Putin that Kim Jong-un’s long-range nukes could not yet reach the US. And despite being told by American spy agencies that their intelligence suggested North Korea could hit the US, Trump reportedly sided with the Russian President. “I don't care. I believe Putin,” Trump said, according to McCabe. McCabe, who was speaking on 60 Minutes, confirmed that he was not present at the meeting, but was told about the exchange by an FBI colleague. Speaking about the security briefing, … [Read more...] about What did Andrew McCabe say about Donald Trump and how did the US President react?
Siri doesn't appear to think highly of Donald Trump. At least the virtual assistant didn't on Thanksgiving, when asking about the president showed an image of a penis instead. The error seems to be the result of someone editing Mr Trump's Wikipedia page and inserting the image. That meant it pulled through when Siri accessed the article to show more information – showing the explicit picture to the vast number of people who use the voice assistant on their iPhones. Apple uses Wikipedia to answer a vast range of questions when they are put to Siri. That allows it to know about public figures and other notable bits of knowledge, and allows people to ask how old or tall someone is, for instance. But anyone who wanted to ask how old Donald Trump is over the Thanksgiving holiday was given something they were not expecting at all, when the image appeared. Donald Trump's Wikipedia page – like those of other controversial public figures – is protected, meaning that it cannot … [Read more...] about Don’t ask Siri about Donald Trump
