Fox News host Jesse Watters made the false claim that when President Donald Trump officially took office his children stopped doing international business out of caution. Donald Trump Jr. even retweeted the video of the claim.

Less than 24 hours after the tweet, Eric Trump destroyed the claim with an announcement of new development for Trump’s Scotland golf course. Scotland is not in the United States and thus considered “international.”

“Congratulations to our extraordinary @TrumpScotland team! Minutes ago, we received full and total approval for a new phase of development to include 500 homes, 50 cottages, sports center, retail and more,” Eric Trump bragged.

Since taking office, Trump’s children have secured trademark approval from China, forced leaders to pay to have dinner with Don Jr. while promoting Trump real estate in India, touted “dream projects” at Trump resorts in Indonesia, allegedly forced the U.S. military to stop to refuel at his resort in Ireland and then there’s Scotland.

Published

on

Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who was nominated Saturday to the US Supreme Court, is a darling of conservatives for her religious views but detractors warn her confirmation would shift the nation's top court firmly to the right.

A practising Catholic and the mother of seven children, including two adopted from Haiti and a young son with Down's Syndrome, Barrett is personally opposed to abortion, one of the key issues dominating the cultural divide in the United States.

As a federal appeals court judge since 2017, she has taken positions backing gun rights and against migrants, women seeking abortions and former president Barack Obama's signature healthcare reform that Republicans have been trying to dismantle for years.

The campaign arm for Senate Republicans is raising money by attempting to brand conservative judge Amy Coney Barrett as the "Notorious A.C.B."

The scheme is an attempt appropriate Ruth Bader Ginsburg's famous nickname -- The Notorious R.B.G. -- for a jurist nothing like the late Supreme Court justice.

The website where the T-shirts are sold says the money will go to the "Supreme Court Defense Fund."

"Democrats will do ANYTHING to stop President Trump and Senate Republicans from filling the Supreme Court vacancy," the website argues. "Protecting our Majority has never been more important. HELP!"

"Election Day is just weeks away, and millions of Americans are already voting because the stakes in this election could not be higher. They feel the urgency of this choice – an urgency made all the more acute by what’s at stake at the U.S. Supreme Court," Biden wrote.

"They are voting because their health care hangs in the balance. They are voting because they worry about losing their right to vote or being expelled from the only country they have ever known. They are voting right now because they fear losing their collective bargaining rights. They are voting to demand that equal justice be guaranteed for all. They are voting because they don’t want Roe v. Wade, which has been the law of the land for nearly half a century, to be overturned," he explained.
