Trump and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto have confirmed their first meeting today in Mexico. With Trump previously referring to Mexicans as "rapists" and Nieto subsequently comparing Trump to Hitler it seems like the two are in for a very "cordial" meeting.
Yesterday, the White House announced that the US had met President Obama’s goal of admitting 10,000 Syrian refugees into the country; it did so ahead of schedule. So where are they going: the top state destination for refugee influx are the states of Michigan and California.
Trump commended Huma Abedin on her choice to separate from her husband, former Rep. Anthony Weiner. “Huma is making a very wise decision," Trump said in a statement. "I know Anthony Weiner well, and she will be far better off without him."
"After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband," Abedin said in a statement. "Anthony and I remain devoted to doing what is best for our son, who is the light of our life. During this difficult time, I ask for respect for our privacy."
While Hillary Clinton continued her press conference radio silence, having avoided media Q&A for over 260 days, last night the Democratic candidate did appear on ACB's Jimmy Kimmel live show where she responded to recent reports that her health is deteriorating, saying she feels like she is in an “alternative universe” and laughed off any questions about her health and stamina, arguing that the current speculation "makes no sense."
As of last Friday, taxi drivers in New York City no longer have to pass an English proficiency exam to get behind the wheel... Which makes perfect sense, because communicating with passengers is not really a big part of the job.
Having previously warned that Hillary "is often confused," Clinton's top aide, Huma Abedin - previously best known for standing by her husband Anthony Weiner after his sexting scandal - is now at the center of the Clinton Foundation - State Department debacle. As Bloomberg reports, for the final eight months of Clinton's reign as Secretary of State, Abedin worked for both The Clinton Foundation and as a "special government employee" at The State Department.
...The CIA agents running the Deraa operation from their office in Jordan had already provided the weapons and cash needed to fuel the flames of revolution in Syria. With enough money and weapons, you can start a revolution anywhere in the world. In reality, the uprising in Deraa in March 2011 was not fueled by graffiti written by teenagers, and there were no disgruntled parents demanding their children to be freed. This was part of the Hollywood style script written by skilled CIA agents, who had been given a mission: to destroy Syria for the purpose of regime change. Deraa was only Act 1: Scene 1.
The murder of a New York City imam and his assistant has added further fuel to the islamaphobic America meme but the arrest of a hispanic individual last night somewhat breaks the narrative that this is Trump's fault, proclaimed by many local muslims in the immediate aftermath. An NYPD spokesman also said they didn’t believe the victims had been targeted for being Muslim, but, as one worshipper exclaimed,"this was a hate crime. One hundred percent, there's no doubt about it."
