When CNN host Jake Tapper asked Love if she’d seen the Tweets that the president-elect has sent out over the last week. Love looked like a deer in headlights.

So, if you’re going to make America great again, you have to make it great again for everyone. I think that he — he reacts quite a bit. When someone pushes him, he pushes back. That can also be a downside. I think that’s one of the things we have to keep in check.

Published

on

Switzerland was among the first countries to begin deploying 5G, but health fears over radiation from the antennas that carry the next-generation mobile technology have sparked a nationwide revolt.

Demonstrators against the technology are due to fill the streets of Bern later this month, but already a number of cantons have been pressured to put planned constructions of 5G-compatible antennae on ice.
