Trump had no plans to attend France’s ‘Bastille Day’ — until he learned there was a military parade

Published

Apparently, all it takes is a military parade to get President Donald Trump to attend your country’s celebration.

According to the Washington Post, the French had no expectation of Trump coming to their Bastille Day celebrations during his visit — until French President Emmanuel Macron told him on a late June phone call that there would be a spectacular military showcase commemorating the day.

Trump reportedly told Macron he would be there, according to a White House official who spoke with the Post on condition of anonymity.

The parade will also commemorate the 100th anniversary of entering World War I, and will feature both French and American troops marching through the streets near the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

The meeting between the French and American heads of state comes just months after the now-infamous handshake at the end of May, shortly after Macron won France’s presidential election.

The former federal prosecutor says Trump committed a blunder by denying a call with a Gordon Sondland staffer.

Republicans want Americans to believe Trump cared deeply — about something he never mentioned

One of the main points made by Republicans during the House hearings on the impeachment claimed that President Donald Trump cared so deeply about corruption in Ukraine that he was holding back the funding. It wasn't bribery because it was all about legitimate foreign policy, according to Trump and the Republicans in Congress.

Their greatest problem is that Trump has never held back speaking out about something he cared for. As the Washington Post noted, the argument doesn't stand up.

‘He can’t understand why what he did is wrong’: George Conway says Trump is incapable of being president

Published

on

Prominent Republican attorney George Conway ripped President Donald Trump on MSNBC on Wednesday.

Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, spent his day with MSNBC to provide live analysis on the first day of televised impeachment hearings.

"It’s also striking, George, that every defense falls apart almost before the end of a single news cycle," anchor Nicolle Wallace reported. "Everything that people have said in an effort to defend him has collapsed under the weight of the president’s conduct."

"What we just heard the president say is delusional," Conway replied. "And it’s debilitating."
