My older son knows who Iron Man is. He’s aware that, when Spider-Man removes his mask, he becomes Peter Parker. And, thanks to my husband’s tireless efforts, he can recite all the lyrics to Blitzkrieg Bop by The Ramones. But he doesn’t yet know who Donald Trump is. This is fair. I mean, the boy is only four. I grew up in the 1980s, but I didn’t know who Ronald Reagan was until I was at least nine, and even then I confused him with Val Doonican. However, given all the coverage this week’s presidential state visit will attract, my son might at least know the name Donald Trump by the end of this week – and I’m wondering how to tackle the topic.

THE White House has slammed female staffer Alva Johnson’s claim Donald Trump kissed her without consent, calling it "absurd". Press secretary Sarah Sanders immediately dismissed the kiss allegations as “absurd on its face”, and added: “This never happened and is directly contradicted by multiple highly credible eye witness accounts.” Johnson however told friends and family about the incident at the time, all of whom corroborate her story. A lawsuit lodged in Florida, which seeks unspecified damages for emotional pain and suffering, also alleges Johnson was paid less than her white male counterparts. A campaign spokesman rejected that claim as “off-base and unfounded”. Johnson, 43, said the incident happened at a rally in August 2016, when the then-presidential candidate grabbed her hand and leaned in for a kiss on the lips as he exited from a car. She says she turned her head and the unwanted smacker landed on the side of her mouth – … [Read more...] about White House slams female staffer Alva Johnson’s claim Donald Trump ‘kissed her without consent’ as ‘absurd’
Kim Jong-un has arrived in Hanoi, after transferring from train to car for the final leg of his overland trip to Vietnam where the North Korean leader is scheduled to have a private dinner and meeting with Donald Trump on Wednesday. Kim will meet the US president for a brief one-on-one conversation, followed by a social dinner, at which they will each be accompanied by two guests and interpreters, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said. Their meeting comes eight months after the historic summit in Singapore, the first between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader, which failed to produce concrete results on a path to denuclearisation. Kim arrived on Tuesday at the station in the Vietnamese town of Dong Dang after crossing into China on Saturday thousands of kilometres further north at the city of Dandong. Vietnamese officials were on hand to receive him at the station with a red carpet and guard of honour, with North Korean and Vietnamese flags flying. Kim was seen … [Read more...] about Kim Jong-un arrives in Hanoi for Vietnam summit with Donald Trump
DESPOT Kim Jong-un has arrived in Vietnam for his second summit showdown with Donald Trump as the US President vowed to get tough on North Korean nukes. Grinning broadly, the dictator stepped off an armoured train before being driven to the capital, Hanoi, in a bulletproof Mercedes limo for crunch talks with Trump. Meanwhile Trump jetted off on Air Force One for what he predicted will be a “very productive summit” which will kick off with a private dinner on Wednesday. “Heading over to Vietnam for my meeting with Kim Jong Un. Looking forward to a very productive Summit”, Trump tweeted. Following a historic first meeting in Singapore in June, the world will be looking for concrete progress in stopping North Korea’s nuclear programme. Trump reasserted his hopes for complete denuclearization ahead of the summit. “I think we’ll have a very tremendous summit,” he told the nation's governors during their meeting at the White House on Monday … [Read more...] about Kim Jong-un arrives on armoured train for second summit with Donald Trump as US President calls for end to North Korea nukes
A FEMALE staffer on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign claimed yesterday that he had kissed her without her consent. Alva Johnson, 43, said the then presidential candidate grabbed her hand and leaned in for a kiss on the lips as he exited from a car outside a rally in August 2016. She says she turned her head and the unwanted smacker landed on the side of her mouth – branding it “super-creepy and inappropriate”. Johnson, now launching a lawsuit against Trump, said: “I immediately felt violated because I wasn’t expecting it or wanting it. I can still see his lips coming straight for my face. “I’ve tried to let it go. You want to move on with your life. I don’t sleep. I wake up at 4 in the morning looking at the news. I feel guilty. The only thing I did was show up for work one day.” 'BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL, FANTASTIC' The former Trump campaign worker broke her silence, two-and-a-half-years after the alleged kiss, during an … [Read more...] about Donald Trump campaign worker claims damages after alleging he ‘kissed her without consent’ at campaign rally
