Trump caught blatantly lying about Ukrainian president ‘exonerating’ him in new interview

Published

President Donald Trump has been caught in a blatant lie after he claimed that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky had exonerated him of any wrongdoing.

In a Monday morning tweet, the president claimed that Zelensky had absolved him of trying to extort his country by withholding foreign aid unless he agreed to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.

“Breaking News: The President of Ukraine has just again announced that President Trump has done nothing wrong with respect to Ukraine and our interactions or calls,” the president wrote. “If the Radical Left Democrats were sane, which they are not, it would be case over!”

However, Politico’s Kyle Cheney writes that Zelensky didn’t “say anything like this” in his interview with Time that published this week.

In fact, during the interview, Zelensky took a shot at Trump for his decision to place a hold on aid to his country, as it came during a time when Ukraine badly needed military assistance against Russian-backed forces.

“We’re at war,” Zelensky said. “If you’re our strategic partner, then you can’t go blocking anything for us. I think that’s just about fairness. It’s not about a quid pro quo.”

Zelensky also said that Trump was damaging his country’s war effort when he kept calling his government “corrupt,” as he was making it harder to secure military aid from other countries.

President Donald Trump was warned COVID-19 could be catastrophic, according to a bombshell new report published online by The New York Times on Monday evening.

"A top White House adviser starkly warned Trump administration officials in late January that the coronavirus crisis could cost the United States trillions of dollars and put millions of Americans at risk of illness or death," the newspaper reported.

"The warning, written in a memo by Peter Navarro, President Trump’s trade adviser, is the highest-level alert known to have circulated inside the West Wing as the administration was taking its first substantive steps to confront a crisis that had already consumed China’s leaders and would go on to upend life in Europe and the United States," The Times continued.

Oil prices jump on hopes for output cut deal

Published

on

Oil prices rebounded Tuesday on fresh hopes an OPEC-led meeting this week will reach an agreement to reduce oversupply and shore up the market.

Prices have fallen sharply since expectations for a quick deal to cut output levels were dashed, but the rescheduling to Thursday of a meeting of major crude producers boosted sentiment.

US benchmark West Texas Intermediate was up 3.83 percent to $27.08 a barrel in Asian morning trade.

A barrel of Brent crude, the international benchmark, was trading 2.81 percent higher at $33.98.

Prices fell to 18-year lows last week as the market wallowed in oversupply arising from a price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia, which have ramped up production.

Trump and his allies have financial ties to companies that manufacture untested drug he’s touting for COVID-19: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump's fixation with hydroxychloroquine, a drug used to treat malaria and lupus, as a potential treatment for the novel coronavirus has left many medical experts, including members of his own administration, frustrated. The drug comes with severe side effects ranging from nausea and hair loss to blindness and cardiac arrest; the hoarding of the drug to test it in COVID-19 patients has resulted in autoimmune patients being denied it, and the evidence that it even helps COVID-19 patients in the first place is anecdotal at best.
