Trump bizarrely attempts to question Nancy Pelosi’s morality because she is not asking to tear down existing border barriers

Published

on

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called President Donald Trump’s wall that he campaigned on “immoral.” This wall, Trump said, would stretch from sea to shining sea and be concrete. Trump has now changed his tune since it became obvious there is no possible way anyone will ever let him build such a wall.

Now the president is conflating a fence with that once-concrete wall in his attacks on Pelosi.

“If Nancy Pelosi thinks that Walls are ‘immoral,’ why isn’t she requesting that we take down all of the existing Walls between the U.S. and Mexico, even the new ones just built in San Diego at their very strong urging. Let millions of unchecked ‘strangers’ just flow into the U.S.,” Trump tweeted.

Again, there are no massive, concrete walls on the border, only fences or metal slats. It’s unclear if Trump’s new campaign is pretending the two are the same.

The settlement, which is subject to court approval, will contribute Purdue's entire value to a body established for the benefit of the claimants and the American people.

Purdue Chairman Steve Miller said the proposals will "provide billions of dollars and critical resources to communities across the country trying to cope with the opioid crisis."

US hints at military response to Saudi attacks as oil prices surge

Published

on

Oil prices made their biggest jump since the Gulf War on Monday after President Donald Trump warned that the US was "locked and loaded" to respond to attacks on Saudi oil infrastructure that Washington blamed on Iran.

It is the first time the president has hinted at a potential American military response to the drone attacks, which slashed Saudi oil production by half and led both the kingdom and the United States to announce they may tap their strategic reserves.

"Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!" Trump tweeted.
