Trump defends vulgar remarks while partly denying them

WASHINGTON --- President Donald Trump offered a partial denial in public but privately defended his extraordinary remarks disparaging Haitians and African countries. Trump said he was only expressing what many people think but won't say about immigrants from economically depressed countries, according to a person who spoke to the president as criticism of his comments ricocheted around the globe. Trump spent Thursday evening calling friends and outside advisers to judge their reaction, said the confidant, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to disclose a private conversation. Trump wasn't apologetic about the inflammatory remarks and denied he was r...Keep on reading: Trump defends vulgar remarks while partly denying them.....»»

Trump wants Jay-Z to know black jobless rate at record low

WASHINGTON --- President Donald Trump is urging his followers to inform rapper Jay-Z that "because of my policies," unemployment among black Americans is at the "LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!"   Trump's tweet on Sunday appears to be in response to a CNN interview in which the rapper said the President's vulgar comments about African countries and Haiti were "disappointing" and "hurtful."   Jay-Z said on the debut episode of "The Van Jones Show" on Saturday that lower unemployment among blacks does not make up for the President's attitude. Jay-Z said: "It's not about money at the end of the day," and it "doesn't equate to happiness."   Asked about the Preside...Keep on reading: Trump wants Jay-Z to know black jobless rate at record low.....»»

Who’d prefer their country to Trump’s US? Norwegians would

STAVANGER, Norway --- Norwegians generally live longer than Americans. There's a generous safety net of health care and pensions. And although it's pricey, the country last year was named the happiest on Earth. President Donald Trump says the United States should take in more Norwegians, but is it any wonder that more Americans are going the other way? The country of 5.2 million people that seldom makes global headlines awoke Friday to the news that Trump wanted to have more immigrants from Norway, rather than Haiti and countries in Africa that he disparaged with a vulgar term. The comments came after Trump met Wednesday with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg in Washingt...Keep on reading: Who’d prefer their country to Trump’s US? Norwegians would.....»»

Trump comments highlight racial impact of migration platform

DENVER --- For years, a movement to limit the number of migrants into the US and end a system that favors family members of legal residents has had to fend off criticism that it's as a poorly veiled attempt to produce a whiter America. Then its most prominent supporter told members of Congress in the Oval Office this week that the US needs fewer immigrants from Haiti and Africa and more from places like Norway. President Donald Trump's use of a vulgar term to describe African countries triggered widespread condemnation, and left the small cluster of immigration hard-line groups whose agenda Trump has embraced scrambling to distance themselves from the president. "They say it...Keep on reading: Trump comments highlight racial impact of migration platform.....»»

US dollar down on as Trump makes fresh threats vs China

The dollar dropped against the euro as comments by US President Donald Trump risked ratcheting up trade war tensions, while stocks diverged. Artjom Hatsaturjants, research analyst at Accendo Markets, said "market sentiment soured on President Trump criticising the Fed for hiking rates and threatening to go 'whole hog' on imposing tariffs on all $500 billion of Chinese imports to the US, further inflaming global trade tensions and putting at risk central bank independence". In an interview with CNBC television broadcast Friday, Trump threatened to slap all Chinese imported goods with tariffs, risking an escalation in global trade war tactics.

A fashion doll like Melania Trump: Is there a message?

  Considering how much flak she got after wearing sky-high Manolo Blahniks to visit hurricane victims in Texas last year, one of her first major style missteps as a first lady, it is ludicrous to imagine anything Melania Trump wore after that incident was less than studied and well thought-out. Which was why no one was having it when the US First Lady's spokesperson said there was "no hidden message" in that controversial graffiti jacket bearing the words, "I really don't care, do u?" she wore to visit immigrant children in detention centers in June. As her country's emissary for soft diplomacy, nothing a first lady wears as she steps out in the public sphere will ever ...Keep on reading: A fashion doll like Melania Trump: Is there a message?.....»»

Trump calls Statue of Liberty climber a clown

  NEW YORK -- President Donald Trump has called the woman who climbed the base of the Statue of Liberty on the Fourth of July to protest his immigration policy a "clown."   Therese Okoumou said she climbed the landmark as a spur-of-the-moment demonstration against policies that resulted in the separation of immigrant children from parents accused of crossing the US-Mexico border illegally. The naturalized US citizen from Congo was escorted off the landmark by police on Wednesday, and pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor trespassing and disorderly conduct on Thursday.   But Trump said during a Montana campaign rally she should have been left alone until she ...Keep on reading: Trump calls Statue of Liberty climber a clown.....»»

Trump: Gas prices are up and OPEC ‘doing little to help’

  WASHINGTON --- President Donald Trump said the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) is "doing little to help" rising gas prices and claims "if anything, they are driving prices higher."   Trump tweeted Wednesday: "The OPEC Monopoly must remember that gas prices are up & they are doing little to help. If anything, they are driving prices higher as the United States defends many of their members for very little $'s. This must be a two way street. REDUCE PRICING NOW!"   Last month, members of the OPEC cartel agreed to pump 1 million barrels more crude oil daily, a move that should help contain the recent rise in global energy price...Keep on reading: Trump: Gas prices are up and OPEC ‘doing little to help’.....»»

Immigrant toddlers ordered to appear in court alone

As the White House faces court orders to reunite families separated at the border, immigrant children as young as 3 are being ordered into court for their own deportation proceedings, according to attorneys in Texas, California and Washington, D.C. Requiring unaccompanied minors to go through deportation alone is not a new practice. But in the wake of the Trump administration's controversial family separation policy, more young children --- including toddlers --- are being affected than in the past. The 2,000-plus children will likely need to deal with court proceedings even as they grapple with the ongoing trauma of being taken from their parents. "We were representing a 3-...Keep on reading: Immigrant toddlers ordered to appear in court alone.....»»

200 kids separated from parents moved to NY facility; Trump still under fire

NEW YORK---As more than 200 immigrant children separated from their parents were moved to a foster care facility in New York City, President Donald Trump continued to draw condemnation from Democratic and GOP officials alike for what has been described as his "cruel, inhumane and very un-American" zero tolerance policy.   Despite its suspension since June 20, critics say Trump's executive order "does nothing to fix the chaos or the humanitarian crisis at the border that Trump created."   On Friday, June 22, following confirmed reports that immigrant children separated from their families have been relocated to New York City, Rep. Adriano Espaillat (NY-13) led a ...Keep on reading: 200 kids separated from parents moved to NY facility; Trump still under fire.....»»

Confusion swirls on border after Trump reversal on families

McALLEN, Texas --- Immigration enforcement on the US-Mexico border was plunged deeper into chaos over President Donald Trump's reversal of a policy separating immigrant children from parents, causing uncertainty for both migrant families and the federal agencies in charge of prosecuting and detaining them. A senior Trump administration official said that about 500 of the more than 2,300 children separated from their families at the border have been reunited since May. It was unclear how many of the children were still being detained with their families. Federal agencies were working to set up a centralized reunification process for the remaining separated children and their fam...Keep on reading: Confusion swirls on border after Trump reversal on families.....»»

US First Lady Melania Trump criticized for wearing ‘I don’t care’ jacket in border visit

The name "Trump" has been the object of ire of many these past few days, whether it's US President Donald Trump, presidential daughter Ivanka Trump and, now, First Lady Melania Trump. More and more people have been speaking out against President Trump for his "zero tolerance" immigration policies that saw thousands of young immigrant children and babies torn away from their parents at the US-Mexico border. The parents and children have been detained inside cage-like shelters in Texas. Daughter Ivanka was slammed by writers and personalities just yesterday for a tweet she made that had people calling her out for her "complicity" and fecklessness in the immigration crisis. Today, wife...Keep on reading: US First Lady Melania Trump criticized for wearing ‘I don’t care’ jacket in border visit.....»»
