Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters trashes Trump: ‘I don’t believe anything Donald Trump says’

Published

on

California Rep. Maxine Waters (D) told MSNBC on Thursday that she doesn’t believe a word that comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth because he has made so many inflammatory and contradictory statements on the campaign trail.

In an interview with anchor Thomas Roberts, Waters said, “Well, the election has taken place and we have to wait and see who this man is and what he’s going to do. I don’t believe anything that Donald Trump says.”

“He has lied and distorted information throughout this campaign. I want to know when he’s going to show us his taxes,” Waters went on. “I want to know when is he going to reimburse all of those students who got ripped off up at the Donald Trump University. I want to know when he’s going to apologize to the disabled journalist about mocking him in front of the children of America. I’ve never seen anything like this.”

“So, are we going to work with him?” she asked. “Which Donald Trump are we working with? If it’s the same Donald Trump that has shown himself throughout the campaign, then I don’t want any part of it.”

Inching across a field littered with Vietnam war-era bombs, Ngoc leads an all-women demining team clearing unexploded ordnance that has killed tens of thousands of people -- including her uncle.

"He died in an explosion. I was haunted by memories of him," Le Thi Bich Ngoc tells AFP as she oversees the controlled detonation of a cluster bomb found in a sealed-off site in central Quang Tri province.

More than 6.1 million hectares of land in Vietnam remain blanketed by unexploded munitions -- mainly dropped by US bombers -- decades after the war ended in 1975.

At least 40,000 Vietnamese have since died in related accidents. Victims are often farmers who accidentally trigger explosions, people salvaging scrap metal, or children who mistake bomblets for toys.

Published

In a progressive welcoming move, Chief Justice John Roberts issued his New Year's Eve annual report urging his fellow federal judges to stand up for democracy.

"In our age, when social media can instantly spread rumor and false information on a grand scale, the public's need to understand our government, and the protections it provides, is ever more vital," he wrote. "We should celebrate our strong and independent judiciary, a key source of national unity and stability."

Trump’s next 100 days will dictate whether he can be re-elected or not — here’s why

Published

on

According to CNN pollster-in-residence Harry Enten, Donald Trump's next 100 days -- which could include an impeachment trial in the Senate -- will hold the key to whether he will remain president in 2020.

As Eten explains in a column for CNN, "His [Trump's] approval rating has been consistently low during his first term. Yet his supporters could always point out that approval ratings before an election year have not historically been correlated with reelection success. But by mid-March of an election year, approval ratings, though, become more predictive. Presidents with low approval ratings in mid-March of an election year tend to lose, while those with strong approval ratings tend to win in blowouts and those with middling approval ratings usually win by small margins."
