‘Everyone wants Ivanka’: Trump insists his daughter ‘would be incredible’ as new UN ambassador

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Friday said that he would love to appoint his daughter, Ivanka Trump, to be his new ambassador to the United Nations even as he lashed out at critics who say such a move would reek of nepotism.

“So nice, everyone wants Ivanka Trump to be the new United Nations Ambassador,” the president wrote on Twitter. “She would be incredible, but I can already hear the chants of Nepotism! We have great people that want the job.”

Ivanka has been floated as a potential UN ambassador ever since current UN ambassador Nikki Haley abruptly resigned earlier this week.

Trump has also said that he would be wary of appointing her to the position because he’d be “accused” of nepotism — even though appointing your daughter to an important position that she is otherwise unqualified to hold is a text-book definition of nepotism.

Trump tweets deranged rant about Mueller and the FBI as hearing draws nearer

Published

on

On Monday, President Donald Trump tweeted an angry invective against former special counsel Robert Mueller, who is slated to testify before the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees on Wednesday, proclaiming once again — falsely — that the report showed "NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION!"

He followed up this outburst with complaints about a litany of villains frequently promoted by Fox News, including the Hillary Clinton campaign and two former FBI agents who were fired after having a affair and who supposedly were biased against him in text messages (though no evidence has ever shown they improperly influenced Mueller's investigation):
