Trump flails in wake of Mueller announcement — attacking everyone he can name

After it was released that former special counsel Robert Mueller would testify in an open hearing, President Donald Trump appears to be flailing and swinging in every direction.

A Washington Post report detailed the strange attacks and complaints that began Wednesday morning. In a call-in interview with Fox Business, Trump seemed confused, saying that Mueller “terminated emails” and “terminated text messages,” that were all published publicly. He repeated the claim in a Twitter attack as he was taking off for the G-20 summit in Japan.

It then devolved into a rant about a possible attack on Japan, a concern that hasn’t been part of the news cycle.

“If Japan is attacked, we will fight World War III,” Trump rambled. “We will go in, and we will protect them, and we will fight with our lives and with our treasure. We will fight at all costs. But if we’re attacked, Japan doesn’t have to help us at all. They should watch it on a Sony television, the attack.”

He then attacked China for his trade war before falsely saying that they are bearing the brunt of the impact of the tariffs.

“Don’t play. Don’t let anyone tell you that China’s not paying for it. China’s paying for it,” Trump said. “We’re not paying for any of it.”

He then went off on possible tariffs against Europe, then threatened the Federal Reserve Chairman, before then saying Vietnam is “almost the single worst abuser of everybody,” with no real specifics.

“Almost all countries in this world take tremendous advantage of the United States,” he said. “It’s unbelievable.”

Things got worse when Trump went after the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) again, appearing to suggest that he’s burning in hell.

The Post noted that the president has a tendency to criticize or mischaracterize his international counterparts before global summits. It then leads to Trump officials scrambling to clean up once they arrive.

It got even more bizarre when Trump took to Twitter as he began his journey to Japan.

In a rambling tweet, he demanded investigations into a slew of people he deems his adversaries. He repeated the Russian-bot talking point that have been working to divide Black America away from the Democratic Party.

He then devolved into a pitch to listen to his advisors on the Democratic debate instead of Democrats and promoted an Australian campaign against immigrants.

Trump blasted as ‘pathological liar’ for claiming stock market is ‘starting to look very good’ after 1,000 point crash

Published

The COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic spreading across the world has present challenges for President Donald Trump.

In addition to the public health challenge facing the administration, Trump's 2020 reelection campaign is also faced with an economic crisis as the virus disrupts global supply chains.

"Investors around the world retreated from stocks and piled into haven assets including government bonds and gold, reflecting escalating worries that the coronavirus will disrupt the global economy," The Wall Street Journal reported Monday. "The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped more than 1,000 points—its biggest point decline in more than two years; the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note approached a record low; and gold prices climbed for the eighth straight session to a seven-year high."

Here are 11 of the most popular progressive policies for candidates to run on — and 5 of the least popular

New polling from the progressive pollster Data for Progress, described in a new piece Monday at Vox, points the way forward for Democrats looking to oust President Donald Trump from the White House and enact a liberal policy agenda.

Progressives often argue that their plans are broadly popular with Americans, and that these ideas are only prevented from becoming reality because of an obstinate Republican Party weaponizing racism and misinformation, archaic political institutions that stymie significant efforts at reform, and corruption across the two parties that allows special and corporate interests to undermine the popular will. And there is a fair amount of truth in this idea — some progressive idea are remarkably popular, and there's no good reason they haven't been implemented yet.

US economy faces long-lasting damage from Trump’s trade war: fed official

Published

on

The trade conflict of the past two years likely left a mark on the US economy, even with the recent agreement to defuse the situation, a Federal Reserve official said Monday.

The outbreak of the new coronavirus in China adds another risk factor to the outlook, which otherwise seemed poised to provide steady growth, said Loretta Mester, president of the Federal Reserve's regional bank in Cleveland.

"At this point, it is difficult to assess the magnitude of the economic effects, but this new source of uncertainty is something I will be carefully monitoring," she said of the epidemic.
