Published

Russia’s state television network on Tuesday seemed very pleased with President Donald Trump’s joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Julia Davis, who runs the Russian Media Monitor website, reports via Twitter that Russian TV show host Olga Skabeeva told her viewers that Trump showed his support for Russia during the conference by defying his aides’ pleas to mention Russia’s annexation of Crimea during his joint appearance with his Russian counterpart.

“Trump failed to mention Russia’s aggression in Ukraine and the annexation of Crimea,” Skabeeva said, according to Davis’ translation. “He didn’t forget, but purposely didn’t mention it.”

Skabeeva went on to say that it was actually Putin who brought up the dispute over Crimea during an appearance on Russia’s state TV network after the press conference.

“Putin had to come to Trump’s rescue,” she said, as the audience applauded.

Last month, Skabeeva celebrated Trump reportedly reciting Russian talking points about Crimea during a G7 conference while proudly declaring that, “Crimea is ours, Trump is ours!”

Betsy DeVos’ DOE threatens to cut university funding for positive portrayal of Islam

Published

on

The U.S Department of Education threatened to pull federal funding from a Middle East studies course jointly run by Duke University and the University of North Carolina because it portrays Islam too positively.

The DOE ordered the universities to change their program or lose its federal grant money.

The letter also argues that the program “appears to lack balance” because its programs are not focused on the discrimination faced by “religious minorities in the Middle East," including Christians and Jews.
