Donald J Trump

Rex Tillerson

Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson has been fired and immediately replaced by the CIA director, Mike Pompeo. 

Mr Tillerson was the former  chief executive of ExxonMobil,and was called to be Secretary of State by Donald Trump, just a year ago. In a decision that has shocked the Tillerson, Trump was reported to have called Tillerson to leave his job.


The president also has now nominated Gina Haspel to be the new director of the CIA, if accepted by congress, she will be the first woman to be the director of the agency.

There has been rumour back and forth that in the past about the disagreement with Rex Tillerson and Donald Trump, and Tillerson was reported to have allegedly called Donald Trump a moron, something he denied, amidst reports he was considering quitting the cabinet.

According to White House senior officials, the President has decided to fire Tillerson to hire new heads ahead talks between Trump and Kim Jong-Un of North Korea in May.

Trump tweeted about the firing here;



President Trump is looking to poke the NRA after he asked his attorney-general, Jeff Sessions to look into regulations that will ban"bump stocks". Bump stocks are the gun accessories that turn legal guns into machine guns, such guns were used in the Las Vegas shooting that saw 50 people dead, and several others injured.


The new regulation is set to be put in place after pressure from survivals and students of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School are now starting to call out the different arms of government, asking them to take action on the gun violence rocking the different parts of the U.S.

The latest mass shootings once again have now ignited the debate on gun control measures, after 17 students were killed in the school on Valentine's day.

In a meeting at the East room, Trump said;

We must do more to protect our children. I signed a memorandum directing the attorney general to propose regulation to ban all devices that turn legal weapons into machine guns. I expect that these critical regulations will be finalized very soon. We cannot merely take actions that make us feel like we are making a difference. We must actually make a difference. We must move beyond clichés and debate.

Responding to the President's comment, Sarah Isgur Flores, spokesperson for the DOJ said "The Department understands this is a priority for the President and has acted quickly to move through the rulemaking process. We look forward to the results of that process as soon as it is duly completed.



President Trump has started to feel the heat from Special counsel Robert Mueller, and at the end of of the investigation, Donald Trump attempts to screaming "fake news" or the president calling the investigation a "witch-hunt" might be finally over, and we might be looking at a resigning of Trump or impeachment.

The Russian meddling of the 2016 election has been a cloud over Trump's cabinet since his inauguration, but Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion with Russia, calling it a hoax, and a made up story by the Democrats.


During the 2016 election, Trump repeatedly calls on the Russians to find dirt on Hillary Clinton, and also the 30,000 emails that she claimed was deleted. Also, his top advisers, also met with the Russians, asking for dirt on Trump's opponent, Hillary Clinton.

Trump in the past had issues with his businesses, and U.S. banks stop loaning his businesses funds. So he had turned to Russian oligarchs close to the Kremlin to help him with bailout funds, which he was given. After the presidential race turned out to be between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, Russia then treated Trump as an asset, and later worked against Hillary Clinton to elect Trump.

None of the allegations have been connected to Russia strongman, Vladmir Putin, but U.S. Intelligence officials believed that such a massive plot cannot happen in Russia without a go ahead from Putin.

A bill of Trump's impeachment will likely include his connection with the Russian, the finances of his business and the meetings of Trump's family members with Russia oligarchs. 

On a normal day in the U.S., the president of the Republic would have ordered a full scale investigation into the Russia meddling in the election,but Trump is not like other 44 past presidents, instead he appointed a committee on election integrity headed by Vice President Mike Pence and Kris Kobach to find out why Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, based on his belief that California had used illegal immigrants to vote.

The committee collapsed before it even started.

The current level of Mueller indictment makes it too late for Trump to fire Mueller now, if he tries it, the Congress will look into obstruction of justice, and that will lead to an impeachment.



Former President Bush was at an economic summit in the Middle East and while there took aim at the President Trump, who in the past had denied that the Russians meddled in the 2016 U.S. Election. Bush also attacked Russian President Vladmir Putin, saying the Russian President is yet to forgive the West for the demise of the Soviet Union.


Bush was speaking in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, at a conference by the Milken Institute, a think tank based in Santa Monica, California.

The former president did not mention President Trump by name, but said;  "Whether (Russia) affected the outcome is another question. It’s problematic that a foreign nation is involved in our election system. Our democracy is only as good as people trust the results"

On Putin

Bush described his Putin as a "zero-sum", Bush said; "He can’t think, ‘How can we both win?’ He only thinks, ‘How do I win, you lose? He’s got a chip on his shoulder. The reason he does is because of the demise of the Soviet Union troubles him. Therefore, much of his moves (are) to regain Soviet hegemony ... That’s why NATO is very important."

While former President Obama has said Russians meddled in the 2016 elections, and Bush also had in different times talks about the meddling of the U.S.. election, President Trump did not believe that the Russians meddled in the election, and has called the investigation on this team campaign team as only a witch hunt and called the news fake news.


Former White House political aide, Omarosa Manigault cries through a short interview she did with E! correspondent Ross Mathews on the latest edition of CBS’ Celebrity Big Brother. Omarosa described the White House similar to the way it was described by the author of Fire and Fury, Michael Wolffe.


When Matthew asked her while she had worked in the White house despite the chaos that happens everyday in the White house, Omarosa said; "I felt like it was a call to duty, felt like I was serving my country, not serving him."


And while commenting on the U.S. President everyday's tweet, she said it was “Like, I was haunted by tweets every single day. Like, what is going to tweet next?"She talks about trying to be a decent person among the members of staff by stopping the President from tweeting, but complains that she was getting attacked by people around the President.

When Matthew asked Omarosa “Should we be worried? and asked that she tells him that it will be ok, the former WH aide responded,  “No, it’s going to not be OK. It’s not.” She looks down as she adds, “It’s so bad.”

According to a new Republican memo, the Justice Department has reason to suspect that former Trump campaign associate Carter Page was a Russian spy. The memo, which recently trended on Twitter by some Russian bots, and some Republicans asking for the memo to be released was another way to discredit the Russian investigation headed by the Mueller investigators.

According to the memo, the FBI and Justice Department failed to adequately present to the judge that they were relying on the information of a dossier from a British intelligence officer, Christopher Steele. The dossier from Steele was the document the FBI relied on to renew a warrant for surveillance of Page from the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Court (FISA).


The memo is reported to be put together by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. This will be used to attack Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for approving the application of a warrant spy on page without properly vetting the application.

The memo also claims that the FBI and Justice Department abuse of FISA by using the dossier for its application to renew the warrant. The White House is currently asking for the memo to be made public, while Democrats are asking that the Justice Department be consulted on the memo before it is declassified.

The House Intelligence Committee is looking to vote on whether the memo should be released to the public.

Trump is reportedly not happy with Rosenstein after he approved and hire Mueller to investigate the Trump's team connection to the 2016 U.S. election, and Trump is looking to firing Rosenstein.

Carter Page is  an oil industry consultant and former investment banker who worked on the 2016 Trump campaign, and also had a long relationship with Russia. He also visited Russia during the campaign period, but claims he did so on personal capacity only.




Former first lady and 2016 presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton made a surprise appearance at the 2018 Grammys, amidst cheers from the audience, and decided to poke fun at the U.S President Donald Trump with the Michael Wolffe book, Fire and Fury.


During a pre-taped bit about spoken word albums, the host of the Grammys, James Corden asked the audience if somebody will win awards if they do a spoken word but about the Trump's presidency. He then used some celebrities for samples, asking that they read from the recent book release of author Michael Wolffe, Fire and Fury.

DJ Khaled was next in line, then he suddenly went out of line, that was when Hillary Clinton shows up, and received a loud cheer from the audience.

Melania Trump is reported to have left the White House after news of her husband, US President fling with a pornstar, Stormy Daniels. The porn star alleges that Donald Trump had paid her $130,000 (£95,000) not to talk about their time together. 


According to, the first lady had decided to stay in a Washington D.C hotel, and not with her husband at the White House. 

White house responded to the claims that Daniels got some "hush money" and said that the news was old, and had been denied prior to the election.

Trump's attorney Michael Cohen had help brokered the deal to make her stay silent.


Robert Mueller, special counsel investigating Trump-Russia scandal was about to be last June, after Donald Trump told White House counsel to fire the investigator so as to stop the investigation, but White House counsel threatened to resign rather than fire Mueller.

When Don McGahn received the order to fire Mueller, he refused to ask Justice Department to fire Mueller, as this will have a very adverse effect on Trump presidency. Mueller gets to know of the Presidential order after investigators interviewed Senior White House officials.

The White House has declined to comment on the news of the President obstruction in trying to fire Robert Mueller, White House lawyer, Ty Cobb and John Dowd, Trump lead private attorney have also declined to comment on the recent development.

In August, when the special counsellor to the President, Kellyanne Conway was asked on ABC if the President is considering firing Mueller, she said "The president has not even discussed that, I can tell you as his counselor, he is not discussing that."

Ty Cobb on Dec 16 also reported that the President was not considering firing Mueller on CNN, he said "There is no consideration of firing the special counsel." and after his interview with CNN, four days later, he sang the same song to Washington Post saying; "For five months or more the White House has persistently and emphatically stated there is no consideration of firing the Special Counsel and the White house willingly affirms, yet again, as it has every day this week, there is no consideration being given to the termination of the Special Counsel"

Trump argued that Mueller is not fit to investigate the case for three reasons;

-A previous dispute over membership fees at the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia.

-Working at a law firm that had previously represented Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner.

-Mueller previously interviewing with the FBI to potentially return to lead the agency after the firing of James Comey.

Both Democrats and Republicans have said that firing Mueller will be a major red line for the President Trump presidency. Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee in a statement said that;

I’ve said it before, and I am saying it again: firing the Special Counsel is a red line that the president cannot cross.Any attempt to remove the special counsel, pardon key witnesses, or otherwise interfere in the investigation, would be a gross abuse of power, and all members of Congress, from both parties, have a responsibility to our Constitution and to our country to make that clear immediately.

Sen. James Lankford, a Republican who also sits on the Intelligence committee said;

The White House and the president have said repeatedly, most recently yesterday, that they will comply with the special counsel and investigating Committees. So, I think we should take the White House at their word.

Mueller was not the one Trump was considering to fire, Trump was also looking to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein,the man who appointed Mueller after the attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation.

The Mueller investigation is still going on, and four people who had been filed charges includes Paul Manafort, former Trump campaign manager and his associates, Rick Gates; former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn; and former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos.

Trump while on his way to World Economic Forum in Davos told reporters he was looking forward to speak with special counsel Mueller in two or three weeks time.



The Chinese government is not going on twitter before it can let out its own threat to the Trump administration if it intends to provoke China at the South China Sea. The warning was given by a top official of the Communist government in Russia after a USS Hooper warship was spotted within 12 nautical miles of the  disputed Huangyan  island.


While the US has called the sailing on the island as a routine part of its operation the international waters, the party official responded,

China has exercised restraint against U.S. provocations in the South China Sea, but there are limits. If the U.S. doesn't stop its provocations, China will militarize the islands sooner or later. Washington will be left with no countermeasure options and suffer complete humiliation.

The Chinese are angry with the U.S. for sailing near the disputed Huangyan without permission from the Chinese government.

Another communist official newspaper is criticizing the activities of the US in the disputed island,and warn the US that the area it is sailing belongs to the Chinese, and therefore its the Chinese territory. The paper then warns that if the US continue to use the water, it will only allow China militarize the region. The paper wrote;

Some US officials had pointed an accusing finger at China for the “militarization” of the South China Sea.

China’s sovereignty over Huangyan Island and its adjacent waters is indisputable. Aggressive acts by U.S. warships in the South China Sea undermine China’s sovereignty and security interests, and threaten the safety of Chinese vessels and personnel engaged in normal activities, violating the basic norms of international relations and harming relations between the two countries and their militaries.

Shows of strength in the name of “freedom of navigation” operations go against the common interests of all parties in the South China Sea to enhance peaceful cooperation. In fact, the situation in the South China Sea is not as bad as some make it out to be. For example, China and ASEAN have adopted the framework of the “Code of Conduct for the South China Sea,” and China is working with ASEAN to make the South China Sea a sea of peace, friendship, and cooperation for the benefit of all.

The U.S. decision to stir up trouble reveals who is behind the “militarization” of the South China Sea. For its part, China has established a consultation mechanism with the Philippines, and the two countries are discussing ways to foster maritime cooperation. In addition, China and ASEAN are expected to further expand maritime cooperation, and the two have already agreed to conduct a joint maritime exercise in 2018. It is against this backdrop of peace and cooperation that a U.S. warship ran rampant through Chinese waters.

Such reckless behavior will only hit a brick wall.

The U.S. is known to carry out freedom of navigation operation patrols (FONOP) in areas that is called international waters, and the Trump administration has increased the FONOP since the initial patrol in May 2017.
