Argentine President Macri: Ivanka Trump sat in on my call with her father

Published

on

Argentine President Macri revealed on Monday that Ivanka Trump sat in on a call between him and President-Elect Donald Trump, according to the Hill.

In an interview with the Asahi Shimbun, Macri spoke of his relationship with Trump over the years, noting that he “is a bold and aggressive person who pushes his pet theories and pushes through them.”

“Trump won the election while making many people his enemy,” Macri said, adding, “That shows his capabilities and insights are excellent.”

However, while the two leaders held a call to discuss working together in the future and “establish the best bilateral relations ever,” Macri also noted that Trump’s daughter Ivanka sat in on the call.

Ivanka also sat in on a meeting between the President-Elect and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, which prompted some to question her role in her father’s political affairs while also serving as vice president for development and acquisitions for the Trump Organization.

Even though Ivanka sat in on the call between Trump and Macri, the Argentine leader said, “I have known her since her infant days.”

A spokesperson clarified, “He spoke with Ivanka only briefly to say hello because he met her when she was just a kid.”

However, many have called Ivanka’s involvement in the Trump Organization while sitting in on meetings with foreign leaders a “conflict of interest.”

Trump said while on the campaign trail, “If I become president, I couldn’t care less about my company. It’s peanuts. I have Ivanka, and Eric, and Don sitting there. Run the company kids, have a good time.”

However, an arrangement of the sort only works if business and politics remain completely separate, which is not the case as long as Trump’s children continue sitting in on his political meetings.

Specifically, a recent Washington Post report revealed that given Trump’s status as the next president, some foreign leaders felt pressured to stay at his hotels when in the U.S.

Pentagon gives senators classified briefing on UFOs reported by the Navy

Published

on

While it might sound like something out of "The X-Files," Navy pilots have been seeing UFOs, and U.S. Senators now want to know what's happening.

According to Politico, three more senators met with Pentagon officials for a classified briefing Wednesday about encounters pilots are having with unidentified aircraft. It seems the Pentagon is getting more and more requests by officials with high clearances to figure out what's happening.

The crafts are, at their most basic, nothing more than "unidentified aircraft," and while it isn't likely they're little green men, there are some senators who might have concerns about whether these UFOs are actually a foreign adversary.

Wall Street Journal issues blistering editorial asking Trump what the point is of a second term

Published

on

In a blistering editorial, the Wall Street Journal is asking President Donald Trump what the point of a second term is since he hasn't done anything in his first term.

During his rally in Orlando Tuesday, Trump repeated the same tired lines and same tired policies from 2016. The "Promises Made, Promises Kept" slogan shown over the crowd, yet the supporters didn't understand the irony.

"The most striking fact of his speech was how backward looking it was," the editorial board said. "Every incumbent needs to remind voters of his record, Mr. Trump more than most because the media are so hostile."

‘Crosses a line’: New York Times publisher unleashes on Trump for accusing paper of ‘treason’

Published

on

On Wednesday, New York Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger wrote a blistering editorial in the Wall Street Journal, saying that President Donald Trump's latest attack on his paper "crosses a line."

First it was the "the failing New York Times." Then "fake news." Then "enemy of the people," wrote Sulzberger. "President Trump's escalating attacks on The New York Times have paralleled his broader barrage on American media. He's gone from misrepresenting our business, to assaulting our integrity, to demonizing our journalists with a phrase that’s been used by generations of demagogues. Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death.
