Donald J Trump

The mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, Carmen Yulín Cruz is tired of being polite or the political correctness as she stood with a teary eye on a podium, while addressing the media, and talks about the hardship the community had faced after Hurricane Maria, and how the Trump administration has ignored them.

                                  

The Island after the hurricane did not receive massive support as Florida and Texas got after Hurricane Irma and Harvey respectively.

                         

The Mayor made a plea to people to help them, and with emotional eyes said that the people are suffering with some drinking water from the creek. Puerto Rico are in dire need of food, water, medicine and most of the state have gone without power.

Cruz said;

I will do what I never thought I was going to do. I am begging, begging anyone who can hear us to save us from dying. If anybody out there is listening to us, we are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency.

 

The Trump administration has done a terrible job with the response to the people of Puerto Rico, and therefore have come under scrutiny from members of the public, including popular musician, Rihanna, tweeting at the president;

                        

Donald Trump though believes his team is doing a good job in the region when he told reporters;

We have done an incredible job, considering there's absolutely nothing to work with.

Donald Trump is not relaxing on his "America first" Agenda after the US president played the UK prime minister, Theresa May, after she had lobbied with Trump not to impose heavy tax on a new model of passenger jet built by one of the country's biggest employers.

The US government has imposed a 219 percent tax for the import of the jets in the United States. The Union are not happy with May's sluggishness, and have said the decision by the US Department of commerce will affect thousands of workers in Northern Ireland, the manufacturer of the Bombardier jet. The Union said Theresa May is "asleep at the wheel"

               

While it is expected that the US impose a tax on the new jet, the recent 219 tax is a huge size for Bombardier, and Theresa May had a call earlier in the month to talk about the US department of commerce decision, and had asked that Trump look into it, but in the US side, the Bombardier biggest competitor, Boeing had accused the Bombadier of having received unfair subsidies from the UK and Canada government, and this will allow for the manufacturer to be able to sell at lower cost price than Boeing in America.

Bombardier is supposed to deliver 125 new jets to Delta next year as part of a $5.6bn (£4.2bn) deal signed in 2016, and has called the imposed tax"absurd" and also vowed to fight the decision by the US commerce department.

Ross Murdoch, GMB national officer has accused May of not doing more for British workers, and Jimmy Kelly, Unite regional secretary said;

The decision taken by the US department of commerce was not unexpected - unfortunately it is unlikely to be overturned by President Trump whose protectionist tendencies are well-known. The threat of punitive tariffs on the C-Series will cast a shadow over Bombardier's future unless the company can source alternative and substantial sales outside the US market.

Donald Trump continues his campaign on total annihilation of North Korea, and he is letting the world know his stance during his speech at the UN assembly in New York. 

The US president calling the North Korea, Kim Jong-Un a "rocket man" and will have no choice but destroy North Korea if the country forces the United States" to defend itself or its allies. Trump has decided to come up with the new threats after several sanctions asking to slow down the nuclear weapon program, but the sanctions according to North Korea will only speed up its nuclear program.

                      

Watch Donald Trump speech here:

                

The speech did not end with North Korea, but the President went ahead to attack other nations, and US enemies. Other countries attacked by Donald Trump include Iran, Venezuela. The North Korea ambassador left his seat before Trump walks in, leaving a junior associates to listen to the rambling speech of the US president.

The speech against Iran, raised the eyebrows of the country's ambassador. Trump called the country's leader, "corrupt dictatorship," he said;

The Iranian government masks a corrupt dictatorship behind the false guise of a democracy,It has turned a wealthy country, with a rich history and culture, into an economically depleted rogue state whose chief exports are violent, bloodshed and chaos.

It is time for the entire world to join us in demanding that Iran's government end its pursuit of death and destruction.

    

 

Iran ambassador raised his eyebrows when the president described his country leaders as 'corrupt dictatorship' 

 

 

Trump also attacked Venezuela, and condemned the current regime for the economic collapse and violent clashes between the government forces and the government, and the overtake of its parliament so that it could gain control of the government. 

Trump said in his speech;

The socialist dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro has inflicted terrible pain and suffering on the good people of that country. 

This corrupt regime destroyed a prosperous nation -- prosperous nation, by imposing a failed ideology that has produced poverty and misery everywhere it has been tried. To make matters worse, Maduro has defied his own people, stealing power from their elected representatives, to preserve his disastrous rule. The Venezuelan people are starving and their country is collapsing.

The faces on the diplomats of the countries attacked can be seen, as they remain stone faced, and shows great anger for the attack on their countries by the US president Donald Trump.

The speech,though got a positive feedback from Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who was seen clapping and nodding is head when Trump attacked the Iran nuclear deal, calling it the worst deal made by the US, and slammed former President Barack Obama, while calling the deal  “an embarrassment.”

The Saudi diplomats can also be seen with smiles with the slamming of Iran by the US president, as both countries are currently locked in war as they battle the control of the middle east.

North Korea once again is not backing out on its development of its missile test, after the country tested its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on early Sunday. The country has also called the latest test a "perfect success" of unprecedented "strength"

The US Geological Survey recorded a 6.3 magnitude earthquake at a depth of 0.0 km, and indicator that Kim Jong Un military might have conducted a nuclear test.

                       

The bomb that was tested by the North is more powerful than the bombs the US drops on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, and the impact of the test was felt both in the North and South Korea. The Hydrogen bombs tested are more powerful than atomic bombs, and even though analysts have been sceptical of the claims by North Korea of having a hydrogen bomb, the blast that was heard today was more powerful than anything the North had previously detonated.

Speaking after the missile test, Donald Trump took to his Twitter account to respond, writing;

          

South Korea President Moon Jae-in during the campaign has said he is looking to talk North Korea instead of going to war with its neighbours as much of the South Korea population is within the range of North Korea artillery.

And also responding to Trump's comment on "appeasement," President Moon Jae-In office said that it is working with Washington to exert “maximum sanctions and pressure.” And also make its stance known that the reason for the sanctions is only to bring North Korea to the negotiating table again.

The tremor received in South Korea resulted in the South’s National Fire Agency, which operates an emergency hotline, that it received around 31 phone calls from people that reported about ground and building shakings.

World leaders have condemned the latest missile test by North Korea. The Russian Foreign Ministry in Europe said that the rogue state "deserves absolute condemnation." The office of the German chancellor, Angela Merkel and President Emmanuel Macron of France both released a statement that said "the most recent provocation from Pyongyang reaches a new dimension."

The US President Donald Trump is donating $1million from his own fortune to the Hurricane Harvey relief fund. The president is yet to determine the group to give the money to, but he is soliciting from the media worthy groups to give the money.

                     

According to press secretary Sarah Sanders;

He would like to join in the efforts that a lot of people we have seen across the country do. "He'll pledge, proudly, $1 million of his own personal money to help the people of Texas and Louisiana."

He would like to join in the efforts that a lot of people we have seen across the country do.He'll pledge, proudly, $1 million of his own personal money to help the people of Texas and Louisiana. He actually asked that I check with the folks in this room since you are very good at research and have been doing a lot of reporting into the groups and organizations that are best and most effective in helping and providing aid, and he'd like some suggestions from the folks here and I'd be happy to take those

The president has also asked that his supporters donate to the effort in the Harvey disaster. He asked that they donates to the groups involved in the Texas recovery effort. There are some trustworthy groups currently helping with the relief of the Hurricane Harvey, as we listed here.

When asked about whether the money will come directly from President Trump own bank account or Trump's organization, Sanders said she is not sure from where the money will be coming from, but she knows it's the president own's money.

Trump in the past had come under scrutiny from reporters after promising to donate but not following true on his words. One of those was a promise he made to veterans during his presidential campaign, but nothing happened until he was called into question by reporters.

In March, President Trump announced to reporters that he will be donating his Presidential salary to an organization, and also his former press secretary, Sean Spicer asked reporters for suggestions to where to make good on the donations. Since then, Donald Trump has donated his salary to the National Park Service and the Department of Education.

Here are list of celebrities that pledged and donated to the Harvey relief fund;

Sandra Bullock: $1 million to the American Red Cross  

Leonardo DiCaprio: $1 million to the new United Way Harvey Recovery Fund

James Fields, 20 years old man from Ohio is currently charged with murder and in police custody after he rammed a car into counter-protesters peacefully protesting at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, killing one person and injuring another 19.

              

The police have confirmed that James ramming the vehicle into the crowds has killed a 32 year old woman, but the police are trying to get more details before talking to her family.

Col Martin Kumer, the superintendent of the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail while speaking about the incident said;

He has been charged with second degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding and failing to stop at an accident that resulted in a death.

The FBI has also got involved in the accident in Charlottesville and have opened a civil rights investigation along with the Justice Department’s civil rights division and the district attorney’s office.

The mother of the alleged murderer while speaking to Associated Press on Saturday night said she knew her child was attending a rally that has to do with the US president, Donald Trump, and she never thought he was attending a white supremacist rally. She said;

I thought it had something to do with Trump. Trump’s not a white supremacist.

The attack happened after the police had cleared the Emancipation Park where there is the statue Robert E Lee, the statue that the city decided to be removed, and have since drawn attention from the alt-right groups and the Ku Klux Klan..

After a good fight between the far-right and counter protesters, there was a stalemate, and the far-right groups, then moved to another park 2 miles away from the park of the riot to attend the “Unite the Right” event that they had scheduled before the counter protest.

The speaker was the Far-right and White Nationalist leader, Richard Spencer, who said that the group will not back down on protesting against the statue removal by the city.

Robert E Lee Statue Controversy

The city of Charlottesville in February voted to remove the Robert E Lee statue from the park, and also rename the park to Emancipation Park, this was after a campaign by local high school student, Zyahna Bryant. 

This also started after a White supremacist, Dylann Roof murdered nine African Americans in a church in Charleston, South Carolina.

 It was said that confederate flags and monuments across the South be removed after the massacre by Dylan Roof,and after the city voted for the Robert Lee status be removed, White Nationalist leader, Richard Spencer led a torchlight parade around the park, and on 8 of July, around 50 members of the Ku Klux Klan held another rally at the park.

The KKK during their rally at the park were met with resistance from protesters, and police intervened, arresting 23 people.

President Donald Trump Stance

The president has come under attack after his speech, where he said that the country must stay united, as there has been "display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides.”. 

             

The president use of the "many sides" have caused an uproar both from Republicans and Democrats at the congress that believes the president should have called out the word "White supremacist" and condemn the group, instead of trying to cast a wide net on the protest.

                   

One Republican going against Trump is Marco Rubio, tweeting that the president should describe the events as a “terror attack by white supremacists”.
