Trump’s ‘shi**hole’ insult demands censure

  Martin Luther King Jr. Day in America is supposed to be a celebration of the civil rights giant. But as we approach the holiday, there is an undeniable truth. The American president is a racist, having branded himself a potty-mouth pol by use of the term "shithole" to describe people from poor countries, specifically immigrants from Africa, Haiti and El Salvador.

But if Trump's pussy grabbing rhetoric wasn't enough to sink his candidacy in 2016, why do you think Trump's latest racist insult will faze him? Still, the president has gone too far.

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.

North Korea tells US that Kim Jong Un is ready to discuss nukes

WASHINGTON --- North Korea's government has communicated with the United States to say that leader Kim Jong Un is ready to discuss his nuclear weapons program with President Donald Trump, officials said on Sunday, increasing the likelihood that the unprecedented summit will actually occur.   The confirmation from Pyongyang directly, rather than from third countries like South Korea, has created more confidence within Trump's administration about the wisdom of holding such a meeting, as US officials make secretive preparations. The Trump administration has long said that if the North Koreans were not ready to discuss giving up their nuclear program, there was no reason for the ...Keep on reading: North Korea tells US that Kim Jong Un is ready to discuss nukes.....»»
