Danish media crushes ‘questionable real estate agent’ Trump for his ‘absurd’ snub of their country

Published

President Donald Trump has found himself getting skewered by the Danish media after he abruptly canceled a planned meeting with the Danish prime minister after she refused to sell Greenland to the United States.

Copenhagen-based newspaper Berlingske on Wednesday published several articles and editorials that took Trump to task for snubbing an important European ally because it would not entertain selling him Greenland.

The paper’s lead editorial, for example, declared Trump’s cancellation “absurd” and said that he was deeply harming his country’s relationship with Denmark.

“Trump’s postponement of the official state visit indefinitely is in itself a completely unheard of step, a diplomatic insult and deeply ominous to the state throughout transatlantic cooperation,” the editors write.

Columnist Jarl Cordua, meanwhile, describes Trump as a “questionable real estate agent with frayed morals” and said that Denmark must not allowed itself to be bullied by him.

“The US president apparently feels called to take Denmark’s hospitality and respect for granted,” he writes. “It is simply disrespectful to the extent that it must have consequences.”

And a top news story in the paper quotes former Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen, who says that it is probably good that Trump is cancelling his meeting because it in all likelihood would have wasted the country’s time.

“The security and climate challenges around the Arctic are too important to be discussed at the same time as hopeless discussions such as the sale of Greenland,” the former prime minister explains.

Published

President Donald Trump reacted to Roger Stone's guilty verdict by threatening to jail at least 12 of his political opponents.

His longtime associate was convicted on seven counts, including lying to Congress, on charges brought by special counsel Robert Mueller as part of the investigation of Russian election interference.

"So they now convict Roger Stone of lying and want to jail him for many years to come," Trump tweeted. "Well, what about Crooked Hillary, Comey, Strzok, Page, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, Shifty Schiff, Ohr & Nellie, Steele & all of the others, including even Mueller himself? Didn’t they lie?"

Roger Stone convicted on all seven counts on charges filed in Mueller probe

Published

on

Roger Stone was convicted Friday on multiple counts on charges brought by special counsel Robert Mueller.

The longtime associate of President Donald Trump was convicted on all seven counts.

He was charged with lying to Congress, obstruction of Congress, witness tampering and other crimes.

Stone was the nexus between the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks coordinating the release of emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman by Russian hackers, according to investigators.

He potentially faces up to 50 years in prison under the statutes, but most likely will be sentenced to far less.
