President Trump slammed Democrats on Wednesday for criticism of his remarks.

President Trump on Wednesday again referred to the MS-13 gang members as "animals."
"I called them 'animals' the other day, and I was met with rebuke. They said, 'They are people.' They're not people. These are animals, and we have to be very, very tough," Trump said during a roundtable discussion on immigration held in Bethpage, New York.
Trump first made the comment last week during a meeting with California officials who oppose the state's sanctuary laws. 
 It came after a sheriff's general description of the frustrations caused by the thresholds state and federal laws say must be passed before ICE can get involved.  She finished with, "There could be an MS-13 member I know about — if they don't reach a certain threshold, I cannot tell ICE about it."  Trump replied, "We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in — and we're stopping a lot of them — but we're taking people out of the country."
"You wouldn't believe how bad these people are. These aren't people. These are animals," the president further noted. "And we're taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that's never happened before. And because of the weak laws, they come in fast, we get them, we release them, we get them again, we bring them out." 
Fox News was quick to assert, "anti-Trump media organizations conveniently took his comments out of context to make it appear that he was talking about illegal immigrants."  However, a number of the outlets did qualify the president's remarks by mentioning he was referring to "some" immigrants.

An African-American congressman has reportedly been on the receiving end of death threats and slurs after calling for President Trump’s impeachment.

An African-American lawmaker has reportedly been on the receiving end of racist death threats and slurs after calling for President Trump’s impeachment. 
According to the Houston Chronicle, Representative Al Green, a Democrat from Houston, played some of the disturbing voice messages he had received at a recent town hall meeting. 
In one recording, a person said, “You ain't going to impeach nobody. Try it and we will lynch all of you.”
And in another, a caller warned him, “You'll be hanging from a tree," reports the Washington Post.
Some are also said to have called him the n-word. 
In response, Green, a seven-term Congressman, told his constituents, “When a person talks about lynching you, we think that's a pretty serious threat.”
He also said, “We are not going to be intimidated.  We are not going to allow this to cause us to deviate from what we believe to be the right thing to do and that is to proceed with the impeachment of President Trump.” 
During an interview with ABC News’ Ben Siegel Tuesday, Green explained his position towards Trump, saying, “I don’t think the president of the United States of America is above the law.” 
When Siegel asked about the impeachable act he thinks Trump committed, Green said, “The president fired the FBI director who was investigating the president’s campaign ties to Russian involvement in the president’s election.”  
And, after the Congressman made references to Trump’s explanation that he fired Comey over Russia and Trump’s Twitter warning to Comey about their conversations, Green said, “I think that when you take all of these things under consideration, then you conclude that the president’s behavior has constituted an impeachable offense.”

President Trump on Sunday again went after the media.

President Trump took to Twitter Sunday morning and launched a scathing attack on the media.
"The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it's TRUE," Trump wrote. "I am providing a great service by explaining this to the American People. They purposely cause great division & distrust. They can also cause War! They are very dangerous & sick!"
His tweet came days after CNN's Jim Acosta pressed White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Trump's use of the phrase, "the enemy of the people."
"For the sake of this room, the people who are in this room, this democracy, this country, all the people around the world are watching what you're saying, Sarah," Acosta said at a press briefing on Thursday. "And the White House, for the United States of America, the President of the United States should not refer to us as the enemy of the people."
"All I'm asking you to do, Sarah, is to acknowledge that right now and right here," Acosta continued. 
However, Sanders refused to say that the media isn't "the enemy of the people."
"I appreciate your passion; I share it," Sanders replied. "I've addressed this question. I've addressed my personal feelings. I'm here to speak on behalf of the president, and he's made his comments clear."

President Trump on Friday again slammed the "fake news" media.


President Trump took to Twitter Friday night and brought up the media's coverage of a gaffe by former President Barack Obama 10 years ago.
Trump tagged Fox News' Laura Ingraham in his tweet and wrote: "When President Obama said that he has been to '57 States,' very little mention in Fake News Media. Can you imagine if I said that...story of the year!"
A Washington Post piece from 2011 says about Obama's remark: "During a 2008 stop in Oregon, then-Sen. Barack Obama noted that he had visited '57 states' during his presidential campaign. Despite the efforts of some GOP partisans, the mainstream media quickly moved on; most journalists assumed Obama knew the right number and had simply misspoken."
During his presidency, Trump has posted numerous tweets asserting that the media is biased against him.
"I just cannot state strongly enough how totally dishonest much of the Media is. Truth doesn't matter to them, they only have their hatred & agenda. This includes fake books, which come out about me all the time, always anonymous sources, and are pure fiction. Enemy of the People!" he tweeted on August 30. 
And in early August, he wrote: "The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it's TRUE. I am providing a great service by explaining this to the American People. They purposely cause great division & distrust. They can also cause War! They are very dangerous & sick!"

President Trump on Saturday again attacked Democrats on Twitter.

President Trump on Saturday accused Democrats of "protecting MS-13 thugs."
"Put pressure on the Democrats to end the horrible law that separates children from there parents once they cross the Border into the U.S. Catch and Release, Lottery and Chain must also go with it and we MUST continue building the WALL! DEMOCRATS ARE PROTECTING MS-13 THUGS," Trump wrote on Twitter.
Trump's tweet follows his remark on Wednesday in which he pushed back against the criticism by some Democrats for referring to MS-13 gang members as "animals."
"I called them 'animals' the other day, and I was met with rebuke. They said, 'They are people.' They're not people. These are animals, and we have to be very, very tough," Trump said during a roundtable discussion on immigration held in Bethpage, New York.

Donald Trump visibly floundered in an interview when pressed on a range of issues, including the number of coronavirus cases and deaths in the US, his claims that mail-in voting is fraudulent, and his inaction over the “Russian bounty” scandal. The US president also repeatedly cast doubt on the cause of death of Jeffrey Epstein, and said of Ghislaine Maxwell, the British socialite who has pleaded not guilty to allegedly participating in the sex-trafficking of girls by Epstein, that he wished her well. In the interview, broadcast on HBO on Monday and conducted by Axios’s national political correspondent, Jonathan Swan, Trump again asserted that his administration is doing an “incredible job” responding to the coronavirus. Claiming that the pandemic was unique, Trump said: “This has never happened before. 1917, but it was totally different, it was a flu in that case. If you watch the fake news on television, they don’t even talk about it, but there are 188 other countries right now that are suffering. Some, proportionately, far greater than we are.”Swan pressed the president on which countries were doing worse. Trump brandished several pieces of paper with graphs and charts on them that he referred to as he attempted to suggest the US figures compared well internationally.“Right here, United States is lowest in numerous categories. We’re lower than the world. Lower than Europe.”“In what?” asks Swan. As it becomes apparent that Trump is talking about the number of deaths as a proportion of cases, Swan says said: “Oh, you’re doing death as a proportion of cases. I’m talking about death as a proportion of population. That’s where the US is really bad. Much worse than Germany, South Korea.

For Britain’s Labour Party, a Mild Defeat May Be Worst of All
He is emphasizing local issues on the doorstep, he said, and "the importance of having a strong local voice to speak for the area, whoever is in Downing Street." He added
that "people are understanding that Theresa May is not so strong and stable, and her policies on education and social care have caused outrage among some traditional Tory voters, and people are hearing what Jeremy Corbyn is saying, not just what people say about him." Please verify you’re not a robot by clicking the box.
Brexit voted that But it’s shifting to the Tories.
" Dipak Desai, a teacher, said, echoing the sentiments of many others.
that I’ve always been Labour, but people have lost trust in the current leader, Jeremy Corbyn, and I don’t know if he’s got the personality and strength to be a leader,
Tony Travers said that You would normally think that Labour, like the Tories, would want to win the next election,
Rather, it is to keep the machine in the hands of Jeremy Corbyn or someone like him." Labour is suffering from a deep division between well-educated, globalized urbanites like Mr. Corbyn
and its traditional white working-class constituents.
In this election, UKIP is not running a candidate, Mrs. May is promising Brexit
and most UKIP voters do not identify politically or culturally with Mr. Corbyn.

"There are great legal minds; there are those who can also communicate well on television; then there is Dershowitz. The professor is uniquely capable of arguing a position, while putting a premium on legal and ethical legitimacy, not its popularity. Bravo, Dershowitz!" ? Chris Cuomo, anchor and reporter, CNN"This collection shows Alan Dershowitz at his best?passionate, fearless, and occasionally very wrong." ? Jeffrey Toobin, bestselling author of The Nine, Too Close to Call, A Vast Conspiracy, and The Run of His Life. "Alan Dershowitz doesn?t twist the constitution to fit an agenda. He tells you what it REALLY means. That?s why he has always been my go-to guy on the law and the Constitution." ? Greta Van Susteren, former anchor at CNN, Fox News Channel, and MSNBC"This book will reinforce Alan Dershowitz?s well-earned reputation as a brilliant legal analyst who, although often swimming against the established current, is usually right. Dershowitz substitutes his trenchant legal analysis for the wishful thinking and self-aggrandizing moral superiority that is presented by many in the academy and media, as well as Trump?s political opponents. Dershowitz?s arguments should cause all rational citizens to take a deep breath and recognize, as Dershowitz demonstrates, that Trump may be many things, but, under current law and the known evidence, the President is not a criminal. His analysis seems flawless to me." ? Harvey A. Silverglate, Criminal and civil liberties lawyer, author of Three Felonies a Day: How the Feds Target the InnocentIn our current age of hyper-partisan politics, nearly everyone takes sides. This is especially true with regard to the Trump presidency. It has become difficult to have a reasonable discussion about the most controversial president in our recent history. For Trump zealots, their president has not only committed no crimes, he has done nothing wrong. For anti-Trump zealots, nothing Trump has done?even in foreign policy?is good. Everything he has done is wrong, and since it is wrong, it must necessarily be criminal. This deeply undemocratic fallacy?that political sins must be investigated and prosecuted as criminal?is an exceedingly dangerous trend.Hardening positions on both sides has been manifested by increasing demands to criminalize political differences. Both sides scream ?lock ?em up?? instead of making substantive criticisms of opposing views.The real fear, as Alan Dershowitz argues, in this compelling collection, is that we have weakened our national commitment to civil liberties as the Left becomes ever more intolerant and the Right slips into authoritarian rhetoric. The vibrant center is weakening, with traditional liberalism and conservatism becoming further apart, not just in approach, but in their respect for Constitutional norms that have served us well for more than two centuries.While Donald Trump is not the only cause of this profound division, his election drew it to the surface and made it the dominant paradigm of political debate. Unless we as a nation begin to focus again on what unites us rather than on what divides us, America might not survive the next decade.

Charlie Gard, a British boy at the centre of a legal battle for treatment, has died according to a family spokesperson.

The 11-month-old baby suffered from an extremely rare genetic condition causing progressive brain damage and muscle weakness and his parents’ long struggle to try to save him by travelling to the US drew an international outpouring of sympathy.

“Our beautiful little boy has gone, we are so proud of you Charlie,” Connie Yates, the baby’s mother, was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

Yates and the baby’s father Chris Gard had wanted Charlie to undergo treatment that has never been tried on anyone with his condition before, against the advice of doctors at his London hospital who said it would not benefit him and would prolong his suffering.

The case ended up in court.

Charlie required a ventilator to breathe and was unable to see, hear or swallow.

The case drew comment from US President Donald Trump, who tweeted on July 3 that “we would be delighted” to help Charlie, and from Pope Francis, who called for the parents to be allowed to do everything possible to treat their child.

British baby Charlie Gard has died. What a giant blessing Charlie’s life brought to our world for such a tiny, precious baby.— Liz Wheeler (@Liz_Wheeler) July 28, 2017

The Rust Belt was promised a lot this election – will those promises, which are now transitioning into policies, be made good? Economist and UN advisor Jeffrey Sachs is a Rust Belt native himself, and believes it’s in the hands of people in that area to take an informed look at the economic proposals of the Trump administration – will these proposals benefit the average person, or is there misdirection and populist scapegoating at play that will only serve to make the rich richer? Sachs provides some red markers to watch for when listening to policy proposals, and offers a question to keep in mind: “Who is going to pay for that tax break?” It may not be the answer the people of the Rust Belt signed up for. Jeffrey Sachs's most recent book is Building the New American Economy: Smart, Fair, and Sustainable (goo.gl/NPbq87).

If you’re from the rust belt the first thing I would say is so am I. I’m a Detroiter. And so I understand the situation in the rust belt and it’s a bad situation. Now Donald Trump won votes there by saying I’m going to fix your situation and he said how he proposes to do it. He said you’re suffering because China has taken advantage of us, bad trade deals because of migrants in our country, because of Mexico and NAFTA and our jobs going overseas and so forth.

I’d give that a rounded D, you know. Probably passing for effort but obviously didn’t do much reading and doesn’t really understand economics very much. The first thing I would say is, “Donald, you’re my student. Didn’t you read about the widening income inequality in the country – that as those voters in the rust belt are suffering your buddies, the billionaires that you put in the cabinet they’re having the time of their lives. How about remembering that in your essay?"

The point I would say to the rust belt is you have now heard the words of a typical populist. A populist looks at a real problem and says it’s the foreigners that caused it. It’s the other people that caused it. A populist always is looking for misdirection for the enemy. It’s kind of like a magic act where the magician tries to make you look over here while they’re stealing out of your pocket on the other side. That’s what’s going on in America right now.

The problem with populism is it doesn’t work. So he may try to beat up on China, good luck to us. We could end up with a real global crisis if they try that. He could try to beat up on Mexico. Probably a little bit more success in the sense of doing harm to others but we’d have a pretty bad backlash as well. But what he can’t do is solve your rust belt problems that way. That he can’t do

So I would say, you know, now it’s your turn to grade the paper because you’re going to be watching Donald turn in weekly exam papers and so you’re going to have to be grading him. Who are the beneficiaries of his actions? Are the rich going to get richer? How many jobs do you really think are coming home? If Ford says, “Okay, we won’t invest in Mexico, we’ll invest in the U.S.” and that creates 700 jobs for a $700 million investment, one job per million dollars. How far are we going to get that way?

You’re going to be the graders now and I would say think hard and seriously. Are you watching gimmicks? Are tweets going to solve your problem or are you hearing solutions that are not solutions for a few rich people but are solutions for you? And one more thing I would recommend to Americans. He’s going to come across and say, “I’m going to cut your taxes and I’m going to cut the rich people’s taxes. I’m going to cut everybody’s taxes.” And Americans will say, “Whoa, that’s wonderful. That’s great.” But then they should think for a moment. “Okay, well isn’t that going to raise the deficit? Okay, isn’t that going to be a lot of more public debt? Yeah. Who’s going to pay for that? My kids?” Or if you’re a young millennial; “I’m going to pay for that! What the heck is that – giving tax breaks to 70-year-old friends of our 70-year-old president and leaving me with the debt?”

So that I think is how we’re going to have to grade this government. And so far they don’t do their homework. They don’t do their reading. They haven’t really studied very hard and so far if they’re passing it’s close to failing.
