    So why hasn't Mexico pad for the wall like your orange god promised? BTW I know that trumpanzees do not handle facts well but there is no rampant illegal immigration in fact it has been in steady decline since 2008. It is a false flag situation that is designed to rile up his moronic base you know people like yourself.

    I think the point is not so much about who is paying for it, which to be honest was just a campaign rallying buzz but no Trump supporters were decently expecting Mexico to pay for it

    the point is to build the wall, period. That's what the Trumpettes want. No matter the costs. And why not? the US is spending billions on pointless cyberwarfare with ghost ennemies, and invisible "Russians" conspiracies with the Pentagon oversized budget.

    Bullshit. He got elected on that promise. Now he is planning on cutting Social Security and Medicare to pay for it. He certainly wouldn't have been elected if he would have told the truth about where the money was coming from.

    Ignoramus. This is a ridiculous lie propagated by the right. Democrats have always been for strong immigration laws but they do not support a ridiculous wall from sea to sea which will be a colossal waste of taxpayer money. Put barriers in urban areas but putting them in unpopulated wastelands is beyond idiotic.

    you are over interpreting that promise. Nobody believed he could have Mexico paid for it. It did sound nice though.

    You are so desperate to see all his lies, than you are missing the big picture of why he won. And guess what, he will win again in 2020. You will have 4 more years to cry over, but this time no Hillary excuse for your loss

    now you are sounding upset

    FFS, he is only acting like a dictator, not being one. Whats so hard to understand he is harmless. People didn't vote for him because of the wall, that's being plain naive if you believe that shit.

    Spend 10 min talking to a real Trumptard without being upset like a little queen, and you will understand why he got elected and why he deserved to be elected. His voters are not as stupid as you make them to be, even though the visible ones you see on the News and CNN are quite phenomenal in terms of stupidity.

    You need to wake the fuck up and stop being a precious little princess

    A church service on a Sunday interrupts Trump’s weekend of presidential pique

    On a sparkling, crisp spring Sunday morning, daffodils and crocuses in bloom, President Trump attended a Lenten service at historic St. John’s Episcopal Church, whose handsome yellow stucco walls have welcomed every president since James Madison.

    Perhaps the president had the 50 victims of an apparently racist massacre in New Zealand on his mind. Perhaps he was drawn to the St. Patrick’s Day-themed elements of Sunday’s service, which included Irish hymns.

    Or perhaps Sunday’s dip into presidential custom and ritual served more to point up the ways Trump’s presidency defies custom.

    Other U.S. presidents have decried horror abroad as an affront to values shared among liberal democratic allies, but Trump has made no major address to mourn those gunned down last week as they worshiped at mosques in New Zealand. He has not condemned the professed white-supremacist motives of the accused killer.

    Instead, Trump has spent the past few days, including the hours before and after the church service, rallying his most loyal supporters around his nationalist agenda against illegal immigration, attacking a familiar list of perceived enemies and adding new ones, all while casting himself as a victim of unfair attacks.

    It was a weekend of nonstop grievances from the leader of the free world.

    “It’s truly incredible that shows like Saturday Night Live, not funny/no talent, can spend all of their time knocking the same person (me), over & over, without so much of a mention of ‘the other side,’ ” Trump tweeted just before 8 a.m. Sunday. “Like an advertisement without consequences. Same with Late Night Shows.”

    SNL had rerun an episode Saturday that opened with a sketch lampooning Trump as a bitter and bewildered George Bailey from the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

    The president suggested the federal government should target the show. “Should Federal Election Commission and/or FCC look into this? There must be Collusion with the Democrats and, of course, Russia! Such one sided media coverage, most of it Fake News. Hard to believe I won and am winning. Approval Rating 52 percent, 93% with Republicans. Sorry! #MAGA.”

    The weekend barrage of presidential pique came after a difficult week and ahead of what may be another for Trump. He suffered an unusual congressional defeat last week when some Republicans joined Democrats in rejecting his declaration of an emergency to get funding for his promised wall along the southern U.S.-Mexico border. That forced Trump to issue the first veto of his presidency to negate the congressional rebuke. The New Zealand shooter invoked Trump as “a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose.” Trump described the massacre as horrible on Friday but said he does not consider white nationalism to be on the rise, despite the findings of experts, including within his own government.

    “I don’t, really,” he said Friday when asked whether white nationalism is a growing threat. “I think it’s a small group of people that have very, very serious problems.”

    Trump did not speak to reporters as he and first lady Melania Trump came or went from the White House on Sunday, so the only clues to his mood came in splenetic tweets that began three hours before the service and resumed shortly afterward.

    Trump rarely attends church, instead frequently playing golf on Sundays at one of his eponymous private clubs. His outings have outpaced those of President Barack Obama, whose frequent trips to the golf course Trump long criticized.

    In addition to “Saturday Night Live,” Trump attacked the late senator John McCain (R-Ariz.), Democrats, the so-called “Steele dossier” linking Trump to Russian interests, the “Fake News,” and even Trump-friendly Fox News, whose weekend coverage displeased him. He likened it to CNN, which he meant as an insult, and told Fox to “bring back” host Jeanine Pirro. The Trump ally’s show was bumped Saturday night after Fox denounced her on-air suggestion last week that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) did not support the Constitution because she is Muslim and wears a hijab.

    Trump’s tweet defending Pirro was roundly criticized by his critics as being discordant in the wake of the massacre of Muslims in New Zealand by an assailant espousing white nationalism.

    “Stop working soooo hard on being politically correct, which will only bring you down, and continue to fight for our Country. The losers all want what you have, don’t give it to them,” Trump urged Fox via Twitter.

    His advice to the television network to “stay strong” is extraordinary for its marching-orders tone, particularly since Fox employs several hosts who are unapologetic Trump boosters. Other presidents have criticized news coverage they consider unfair but have generally refrained from appearing to dictate to a free press.

    “Be strong & prosper, be weak & die!” Trump wrote.

    In between references to the “Witch Hunt” and Trump nemesis McCain, Trump’s focus Saturday and Sunday on automaker General Motors and its decision to close an Ohio assembly plant suggest unease over his economic argument for reelection.

    “Democrat UAW Local 1112 President David Green ought to get his act together and produce,” Trump wrote Sunday, going deep in the weeds to criticize a union leader by name. “G.M. let our Country down, but other much better car companies are coming into the U.S. in droves. I want action on Lordstown fast. Stop complaining and get the job done! 3.8% Unemployment!”

    Trump campaigned on bringing back U.S. manufacturing jobs, and he uses cars as a main example.

    On Saturday, Trump tweeted that GM “must” reopen the plant, “maybe in a different form or with a new owner, FAST!”

    Mick Mulvaney, the acting White House chief of staff, said Sunday it was “absurd” to draw a connection between Trump’s many statements about immigration and the New Zealand shooting suspect’s reference to immigrants as “invaders within our lands.”

    “The president is not a white supremacist,” Mulvaney said on “Fox News Sunday.”

    Trump said during the 2016 campaign that he thinks “Islam hates us.”

    The possibility that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III could on any day wrap up his investigation into the possibility of improper links between Trump and Russia hung over the White House last week, and the coming week looks no different.

    Trump will host new Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, a populist dubbed the “Trump of the Tropics,” at the White House on Tuesday. The visit affords Trump a chance to celebrate what he considers the beneficial global influence of his “America First” agenda, and the Brazilian’s far-right views on immigration hold a mirror to Trump’s own.

    Trump’s tweets about McCain ahead of the church service continued his longtime attacks on a critic who died in August from cancer but whom the president can’t seem to forgive or forget.

    Trump incorrectly claimed that McCain leaked the dossier about Trump’s ties to the Russian government to try to harm Trump’s chances ahead of the 2016 election. McCain said he passed the document along to the FBI after the election.

    Trump also incorrectly claimed that the former Arizona Republican was “last in his class” at the U.S. Naval Academy — although the son and grandson of admirals was a famously poor student. McCain graduated fifth from the bottom of his class at Annapolis before a Navy career in which he was shot down, captured and imprisoned during the Vietnam War.

    “He & the Dems, working together, failed (as usual). Even the Fake News refused this garbage!” Trump said in his third tweet in two days about McCain.

    Meghan McCain, the late senator’s daughter, tweeted in response: “No one will ever love you the way they loved my father.... I wish I had been given more Saturday’s with him. Maybe spend yours with your family instead of on twitter obsessing over mine?”

    John McCain had called Trump unqualified, then angered the president by siding against him in an early test of presidential will over health care.

    Meghan McCain appeared to focus on the personal nature of Trump’s grievance Sunday, suggesting that the president is obsessed with her father because he resents comparison to the respected war hero.

    “My father lives rent free in your head,” she said in a tweet that later appeared to have been deleted.

    Lawyer George T. Conway, a rapier-tweeting Trump critic and husband of top White House counselor Kellyane Conway, surveyed the scene while Trump attended the service.

    “His condition is getting worse,” he wrote.

    That's because it doesn't fit his narrative or fire up his base.

    He's always reticent or absent a comment when it's the growing issue of white nationalism but compare that to the shit he just makes up about Muslims.

    So while he's blowing dog whistles and talking about useless walls he's actually singularly unprepared to protect his own countrymen from a rising threat because Trump does nothing unless it benefits Trump and his supporters are still too dumb and / or deluded to see that.

    Our interest in revisiting the compilation that has come to be called the “Steele Dossier” concerns neither of those topics, at least not directly. Rather, we returned to the document because we wondered whether information made public as a result of the Mueller investigation—and the passage of two years—has tended to buttress or diminish the crux of Steele’s original reporting.

    N.Y. Attorney General Calls For $5.6 Million Fine Against Trump's 'Self-Dealing' Foundation

    New York State Attorney General Letitia James has called for a $5.6 million fine against the Trump Foundation for allegedly spending tax-free charity money on Donald Trump’s personal, business and campaign costs.


    The penalty would be in addition to $2.8 million in restitution for misuse of charity funds, said James.


    Trump, daughter Ivanka and sons Eric and Donald Jr. agreed to dissolve the controversial foundation late last year after the attorney general’s office filed suit against the charity. The Trumps also granted the AG’s office oversight of disbursement of the remaining $1.7 million in charity funds.

    Shit he makes up about Muslims? Like this list of attacks on innocent people https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...rorist_attacks

    People have been driven out of areas in the UK where Sharia law has taken over. The USA would have to be nuts not to do everything they can to keep people out that have been taught since primary school "Americans are Infidels" and that come from a muslim friend's mouth brought up in Pakistan.

    Those Useless walls have already save many lives and they are the same walls the dems wanted until Trump got in the walls they never had the balls to build.

    Now because of politics and nothing else they would rather drugs kept pouring in, killing thousands than do something about it.

    Trump can be an a-hole but his heart is in the right place and all this crap about him being a racist is total nonsense.

    He has an election coming up and he would have to be mad to go looney in public about White Supremacist, Black Lives Matter on any other piece of sh!t who votes.........common sense which seems to be lacking should tell you that

    President Donald Trump-trumps-usa-png


    These are the four different types of investigations looking at Donald Trump


    President Donald Trump-10910962-3x2-700x467-jpg

    US President Donald Trump is facing so many investigations it can be hard to keep track.


    Federal, state and congressional forces are looking into every corner of his personal, political and business life, generating so much news that one probe can blur into the next.



    The special counsel investigation

    President Donald Trump-9101378-3x2-700x467-jpg

    If you follow US politics, or even if you don't, you've probably heard about Robert Mueller's investigation (AKA the Russia Probe.)

    The former FBI director was tasked with investigating "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump."


    Mr Mueller, who has broad powers to interview witnesses, issue subpoenas and work with the FBI, has been running his investigation for more than two years.

    So far, he's snared three companies and 34 people including Mr Trump's former national security advisor Michael Flynn, his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his former confidant Roger Stone.

    Despite plenty of whispers, it's unknown how much longer the probe will continue.

    Others below ...

    House Judiciary Committee


    President Donald Trump-10912968-3x2-700x467-jpg

    This committee from the lower, democratically-controlled chamber of congress will explore whether Mr Trump:

    • Obstructed justice in a "number of criminal investigations"
    • Violated the emoluments clause of the constitution, which says lawmakers can't accept gifts
    • Breached campaign and financial laws
    • Abused power in various ways, encompassing "attacks on the press", "misuse of the pardon power" and "attempts to misuse the power of the Office of the Presidency"


    If you think that sounds very broad, you'd be right.

    As his opening salvo, Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler requested documents from 81 people and organisations connected to Mr Trump, including his two sons and son-in-law.

    The Southern District Court of New York

    President Donald Trump-10912878-3x2-700x467-jpg

    Robert Mueller's investigation might get all the headlines.

    But plenty have said the investigations being run out of the US Attorney's office in the Southern District of New York (SDNY) are where the real danger for Mr Trump lies.

    The SDNY is not limited by a specific mandate like Mr Mueller's team is. Its investigators are allowed to dig into any areas where they suspect a crime may have been committed in their jurisdiction. (The Trump campaign and Trump organisation were both run out of Trump Tower in Manhattan.)

    Nick Ackerman, a former SDNY prosecutor, explained that the court has such a reputation for taking on cases the Justice Department misses, it's sometimes referred to as the 'Sovereign District of New York.'

    "They view the Department of Justice more as an impediment than a real partner sometimes," Mr Ackerman said. "The Southern District of New York has a reputation for being independent. It's always been independent."

    House Intelligence Committee and House Oversight Committee


    They're digging into similar territory as the Special Counsel investigation.
    Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff opened an investigation into "efforts by Russia and other foreign entities to influence the US political process" in February.

    The Committee also plans to investigate whether any foreign actors have financial leverage over Mr Trump, his family, his businesses or associates.

    Mr Trump has called the efforts "presidential harassment."

    They include
    • the security clearances given to Mr Trump's family,
    • issues related to the Emoluments Clause of the US constitution,
    • the handling of the travel ban and
    • the President's refusal to release his tax returns.
