WATCH: Fox News host accuses Trump of ‘subservience’ to Russia by delaying attack on Syria

Fox News personality Leland Vittert.

President Donald Trump appears “subservient” to Russia, Fox News anchor Leland Vittert concluded during a Saturday interview of Milwaukee talk radio host Dan O’Donnell.

The scrutiny came after O’Donnell said America’s top priority in Syria was to not anger Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“We have to walk the line, we don’t want to provoke World War III with Russia and its allies and destroying a lot of Russian defense personnel or anything like that,” O’Donnell argued. “The last thing that we want is to get a system of entangling alliance like in World War I.”

“Whoa, but hold on,” Vittert interrupted.

“Is the last thing we want, to send a strong message and actually poke the bear or is the last thing we want to be seen as being subservient to whatever Russia tells us we can and can’t do?” he asked. “Which one is worse?”

“I don’t think this is seen as subservient to Russia, remember we killed how many hundred Russian forces a couple of weeks ago,” O’Donnell answered.

“Hold on, hold on, a Russian general basically said, if you endanger any Russian troops or Russian assets, then we’ll retaliate, otherwise we won’t,” he noted. “So you can read that, essentially, as go ahead and hit anything you want as long as it’s not Russian.”

“That sounds pretty subservient,” Vittert concluded. “That kind of sounds like tip-toeing around the Russians.”

Trump’s decision to block coronavirus aid to hard-hit states will cost 4 million jobs: analysis

Published

on

President Donald Trump's refusal to provide federal aid to states hit hard by the economic crisis sparked by the coronavirus pandemic would cost the country 4 million jobs, according to an analysis by Moody's Analytics.

Negotiations over the next phase of coronavirus relief have stalled as Trump attempts to circumvent Congress with unworkable and legally dubious executive orders that fall far short of the aid that would be included in any Congressional proposal. Though House Democrats already approved a $3 trillion relief bill including an extension on federal unemployment benefits and $1 trillion in aid to states and cities whose tax revenues evaporated amid coronavirus lockdowns, Trump and Senate Republicans have balked at both provisions.

Greenland’s ice sheet has melted past the point of no return

Published

Greenland's ice sheet may have shrunk past the point of return, with the ice likely to melt away no matter how quickly the world reduces climate-warming emissions, new research suggests.

Scientists studied data on 234 glaciers across the Arctic territory spanning 34 years through 2018 and found that annual snowfall was no longer enough to replenish glaciers of the snow and ice being lost to summertime melting.

That melting is already causing global seas to rise about a millimeter on average per year. If all of Greenland's ice goes, the water released would push sea levels up by an average of 6 meters -- enough to swamp many coastal cities around the world. This process, however, would take decades.

According to a report from Politico, Donald Trump will be hitting the road next week where he will visit battleground states in an effort to steal headlines while the Democrats hold their national convention to select former Vice President Joe Biden as their presidential nominee.

With the physical convention set aside due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Democrats will hold a virtual convention that will feature a host of high-profile Democrats including former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama among others, and Trump's campaign wants to get the president out front of them and grab the limelight.
