Trump humiliated by tax return revelations and panicked they will cripple him in the 2020 election: report

Published

on

According to CNN, President Donald Trump feels humiliated by the bombshell New York Times story revealing that he lost over a billion dollars in bad business deals between 1985 and 1994 and used the losses to avoid paying income tax for eight years.

Aides say that in private, he is expressing his determination to prove to his supporters that he is, in fact, a very good negotiator — and in particular, that if he does not, it would leave him vulnerable to former Vice President Joe Biden if he becomes the Democratic nominee for president.

Making matters worse for Trump, many of his foreign policy ambitions are stalled. China is refusing to budge on trade negotiations, North Korea is launching missiles in defiance of the administration’s pursuit of de-escalation, Venezuela’s embattled autocrat Nicolas Maduro is no closer to being toppled by the opposition, and Iran is defying their prior nuclear commitments after Trump moved to reimpose sanctions.

According to CNN, Trump is so desperate to prove himself that he even gave the Swiss government a phone number for them to pass along to Iran, and said “I’d like to see them call me.” And he is increasingly growing frustrated with the more hawkish members of his administration, like Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton, as he fears they may take his government to war and wreck any pretense that he has diplomatic skill.

Failing both at home and abroad, Trump evidently feels as though the image he has built for himself has come crashing down, and he is desperate to save his personal brand.

Pentagon gives senators classified briefing on UFOs reported by the Navy

Published

While it might sound like something out of "The X-Files," Navy pilots have been seeing UFOs, and U.S. Senators now want to know what's happening.

According to Politico, three more senators met with Pentagon officials for a classified briefing Wednesday about encounters pilots are having with unidentified aircraft. It seems the Pentagon is getting more and more requests by officials with high clearances to figure out what's happening.

The crafts are, at their most basic, nothing more than "unidentified aircraft," and while it isn't likely they're little green men, there are some senators who might have concerns about whether these UFOs are actually a foreign adversary.

Wall Street Journal issues blistering editorial asking Trump what the point is of a second term

Published

on

In a blistering editorial, the Wall Street Journal is asking President Donald Trump what the point of a second term is since he hasn't done anything in his first term.

During his rally in Orlando Tuesday, Trump repeated the same tired lines and same tired policies from 2016. The "Promises Made, Promises Kept" slogan shown over the crowd, yet the supporters didn't understand the irony.

"The most striking fact of his speech was how backward looking it was," the editorial board said. "Every incumbent needs to remind voters of his record, Mr. Trump more than most because the media are so hostile."

‘Crosses a line’: New York Times publisher unleashes on Trump for accusing paper of ‘treason’

Published

on

On Wednesday, New York Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger wrote a blistering editorial in the Wall Street Journal, saying that President Donald Trump's latest attack on his paper "crosses a line."

First it was the "the failing New York Times." Then "fake news." Then "enemy of the people," wrote Sulzberger. "President Trump's escalating attacks on The New York Times have paralleled his broader barrage on American media. He's gone from misrepresenting our business, to assaulting our integrity, to demonizing our journalists with a phrase that’s been used by generations of demagogues. Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death.
