Trump goes off on Twitter rant about ‘My Stock Market’ at nearly 2 a.m. in France

Published

President Donald Trump has an early morning meeting Monday with Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi. He also has a full day of meeting with the G-7, but that wasn’t his focus in the early morning hours.

“My Stock Market gains must be judged from the day after the Election (sic), November 9, 2016, where the Market went up big after the win, and because of the win. Had my opponent won, CRASH!” Trump tweeted Sunday night in the U.S., which was nearly 2 a.m. in France where the president is staying during the G-7 summit.

Many economists are warning that the U.S. has had a recession every ten years since the 1970s and is overdue for another one since the 2007 crash. Those detailing the greatest economic problems point to the president’s trade war as a huge concern for the economy’s stability.

Many career staff saw the move as part of a wider Trump administration effort to drive federal employees out of their jobs. Acting White House chief of staff Mike Mulvaney has described that approach as a “wonderful way to streamline government.”

According to a report from Politico, attorneys for President Donald Trump are scrambling after a New York judge ruled late Friday that the president must submit to a videotaped deposition in the case dating back to 2015.

At issue is a lawsuit filed in the Bronx by protesters who claim they were assaulted by security personnel outside of Trump Tower before Trump became president.

Attorneys for the president have been trying to keep him off the stand but Bronx Supreme Court Justice Doris Gonzalez issued an order saying the time has come for the president to face questioning under oath -- something his attorneys would prefer not happen.

Youth leaders at UN demand bold climate change action

Published

on

A day after youth-led global climate strikes, several hundred young activists including Greta Thunberg gathered for a climate summit at the United Nations on Saturday, chiding older generations for doing too little to curb carbon emissions.

The UN invited 500 young activists and entrepreneurs to take part in the New York meeting, the first of its kind, though some were unable to attend after being denied US visas, a point raised by the organizers.

It comes days before a climate action summit which UN chief Antonio Guterres has called to seek greater commitments from world leaders on reducing their greenhouse gas emissions in line with the Paris accord to avert runaway global warming.
