He and the First Lady will spend two nights at his five-star golf resort in Doonbeg. Earlier today, the Queen led world leaders, including Donald Trump, in paying tribute to the D-Day heroes who stormed the beaches of Normandy 75 years ago. The 93-year-old monarch said: “In a broadcast to the nation at that time, my Father, King George VI, said: ‘...what is demanded from us all is something more than courage and endurance; we need a revival of spirit, a new unconquerable resolve...’ “That is exactly what those brave men brought to the battle, as the fate of the world depended on their success."

LONDON- Reuters U.S. President Donald Trump said Britain's Prince Harry was a terrific guy and denied casting his American-born wife, Meghan, as a nasty person, claiming media had distorted his words as he actually felt she was very nice. He also said he had a long discussion about climate change with heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles, although Trump suggested he did not believe the Earth is getting hotter, but that "it changes both ways.” Trump is on a pomp-laden state visit to Britain and has been feted by the royal family and Britain's political elite. Trump met Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles on June 3 and was treated to a banquet at Buckingham Palace. Hollywood actress Meghan Markle, now the Duchess of Sussex, married Charles's younger son Harry last year and gave birth to their first child, Archie, last month. She criticized Trump during his 2016 election campaign as misogynistic and divisive. Before arriving in Britain, Trump, on being told of Meghan's criticism of him … [Read more...] about Trump says Prince Harry is a terrific guy
President Donald Trump said on Thursday the United States was doing well in trade talks with China and that Beijing wanted to make a deal with Washington, reports Trend citing to Reuters “China would love to make a deal with us. We had a deal and they broke the deal. I think if they had it to do again they wouldn’t have done what they did,” Trump told reporters as he left the White House to deliver a commencement speech at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado. Trump said U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods were prompting manufacturers in China to leave the country and locate in other nations. “China is subsidizing products, so the United States taxpayers are paying for very little of it,” Trump said, noting the tariffs had little impact on inflation. “I think we’re doing very well with China.” Trade tensions between Washington and Beijing escalated sharply earlier this month after the Trump administration accused China of having … [Read more...] about Trump says U.S. doing well in trade talks with China
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump said Thursday he was “very surprised” to learn his eldest son had been subpoenaed by the Senate Intelligence Committee to testify as part of the congressional investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. The president expressed frustration a day after Donald Trump Jr. received a subpoena from the Republican-led panel demanding a follow-up to his testimony before the committee. It’s the first known congressional subpoena to a member of the president’s family, a move supported by Democrats, who have long said Trump Jr. lied to Congress about his actions and statements during the 2016 presidential campaign. The decision to issue the subpoena, however, was ultimately made by Republican senators, a fact that irked Trump associates, who have concentrated most of their anger on the committee’s chairman, Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.). “I was very surprised,” Trump said when asked … [Read more...] about Trump says he’s ‘very surprised’ by Don Jr. subpoena
