After all the rumors around the phone call conversation that had president Trump and the Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto, the Washington Post obtained the records of U.S president saying to his counterpart: “stop stating that Mexico would not pay for a wall on the border”.
“You cannot say that to the press,” Trump told Nieto, urging him to refrain from the public statements because of the political damage it would impose on Trump.
“If you are going to say that Mexico is not going to pay for the wall, then I do not want to meet with you guys anymore because I cannot live with that,” Trump told Nieto, according to the transcript.
A coalition of the Democratic and Republican parties of the United States launched the Kentucky-Engage State Council of Cuba to promote policies of rapprochement between that US territory and the Caribbean island.
The group is made up of political and business leaders and headed by state agriculture commissioner Ryan Quarles and Blue Equity executive director Jonathan Blue.
According to the members of the Council the economic, commercial and financial siege affects the companies and farmers of the territory, and the Cuban people.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has resigned in protest at an organisational shake-up.
Apparently, Mr Spicer disagreed with President Donald Trump’s appointment of a new communications director.
Instead, the Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci has been the mediator in this context.
Mr Spicer’s press briefings were very brief and he withdrew from camera in recent weeks. This happens when the White House faces a difficult situation concerning the apparent Russian meddling in last year’s US presidential election and with Mr Trump’s campaign team conspiracy with Moscow.
Fernando Cutz, the director for South America of Donald Trump’s National Security Council, promised tough measures against Venezuela but didn´t give details in a White House briefing Tuesday.
Cutz told journalists that no decision has yet been taken on new sanctions against Venezuela, not specific actions nor the names of individuals or entities that might be targeted.
The briefing occurred soon after President Trump threatened to take “strong and swift economic action” if the Venezuelan government “continues with elections for a Constituent Assembly on July 30”.
Isn´t that threat similar to that Trump made to Cuban government when he appeared in Miami to promise same robust measures. And anyone can ask itself why trump administration is taking such hard decisions regarding other countries that is not U.S?
A drug and alcohol rehabilitation group has published a study which shows nearly 75 percent of Democrats want so deeply President Donald Trump’s immediate impeachment, they would give up booze forever.
Detox, the advocacy group behind the recent poll, interviewed 1,013 men and women who identify as active alcohol consumers.
The group revealed that 73.3 percent of Democrats would never drink again if Trump were impeached “tomorrow,” while perhaps a surprisingly high 17 percent of Republicans would give up the bottle.
In the past few days during G-20 Summit, media have highlighted superficial details of the meeting like President Trump’s decision to leave his daughter Ivanka representing the U.S in one of the sessions. However, Trump´s determination of not to sign a Group of 20 declaration on climate change this weekend has not appeared on news.
Trump’s action — making the U.S. the only G-20 country not to support the Paris climate agreement or its underlying goals — has nothing to do with the country´s isolation or with president Trump´s whim, it is the proof of what the White House and its commanders can do with the world.
