The night before America takes to the pools Twitter hides a tweet from the President.
In the tweet the President said that the Supreme Court decision to allow more time for postal ballots to arrive in Pennsylvania as “very dangerous.”
Facebook did not hide the post, but added a warning message: “Both voting by mail and voting in person have a long history of trustworthiness in the US. Voter fraud is extremely rare across voting methods.”
The President has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize twice. Firstly for his work in fascinating a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, and also for his work between Kosovo and Serbia.
Magnus Jacobson a member of the Swedish parliament who nominated him said, “I have nominated the US Gov. and the governments of Kosovo and Serbia for the Nobel Peace Prize for their joint work for peace and economic development, through the cooperation agreement signed in the White House,” he wrote in English on Twitter. “Trade and communications are important building blocks for peace.”
“This is a hard-earned and well-deserved honor for this president,” White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said on Wednesday. “Career politicians merely talk about the kind of results that this president has achieved on the world stage.”
The President was nominated in 2018 for his work between North and South Korea.
Former National Security Advisor John Bolton has rejected claims that Trump called fallen World War 1 veterans “losers”. Bolton said in response to the story, “I was there” and “I didn’t hear that.”
The Atlantic story also claims Trump cancelled a trip, in 2018, to the site where soldiers from the battle of Belleau Wood are buried, claiming he didn’t want to ruin his hair. However, four different sources have been revealed saying the trip was cancelled due to bad weather.
The Atlantic story by Jeffery Goldberg entitled “Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’.” Was complied from sources who were all anonymous.
Bolton has been an adversary of the President since leaving the administration, but has criticized the media for their false reporting of this story.
President Trump has helped broker a deal between the United Arab Emirates and Israel. The peace deal will see relations between the countries normalized. The President urged Israel to suspend the annexing of the West Bank region, which was a pint of contention between the countries.
Trump tweeted, “HUGE breakthrough,” describing it as a “historic peace agreement between our two GREAT friends.”
The three countries issued a joint statement saying that they,”agreed to the full normalization of relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.”
“This historic diplomatic breakthrough will advance peace in the Middle East region and is a testament to the bold diplomacy and vision of the three leaders and the courage of the United Arab Emirates and Israel to chart a new path that will unlock the great potential in the region,” the statement said.
Twitter has come under fire for not taking any action over Iran’s Khamenei’s post calling for the elimination of Israel. However, Twitter has seen his Twitter account restricted over tweets about law and order in response to the violent protests sweeping America. Twitter has said Trump’s posts “incite violence”. The social media giant has been accused of double standards.
Twitter’s response has been to argue that Iran’s posts concerning the mass genocide of Israel is “foreign policy sabre-rattling”.
“We have an approach toward leaders that says that direct interactions with fellow public figures, comments on political issues of the day, or foreign policy sabre-rattling on military-economic issues are generally not in violation of our rules,” Ylwa Pettersson, Twitter’s head policy for the Nordic countries and Israel, told the Knesset’s Committee for Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs, via video-conference.
If a world leader violates our rules but there is a clear interest in keeping that up on the service we may place it behind a notice that provides some more context about the violation and allows people to click through if they wish to see that type of content,” Pettersson replied.
“That’s what happened for the Trump tweet: that tweet was violating our policies regarding the glorification of violence based on the historical context of the last line of that tweet and the risk that it could possibly inspire harm and similar actions.”
Monday saw global markets plummet and oil prices fall heavily, as fears around Coronavirus fuel the prospect of a global recession.
Analysts are now warning that if the economy is severely affected by the global outbreak of Corvid-19 it could harm Trump’s re-election bid.
“President Trump’s re-election likely hinges on the economy — a medical and/or economic shock from COVID-19 are arguably the biggest threats to his re-election,” Raymond James analysts said in a note on Sunday, referring to the virus’s official name.
“To preserve the economy and prevent a further market sell-off, it is in the best interest of President Trump to aggressively push for a large-scale fiscal response,” they wrote.
“If we go into recession, history speaks for itself. No sitting president has ever been re-elected in a recession,” said Peter Cardillo, chief market economist for Spartan Capital Securities.
Daniel Dietrich, the worship pastor at South Bend City Church, Indiana, has penned a “hymn” rebuking the 81% of white evangelical Christians who voted for Trump.
The lyrics of the song accuse the evangelicals of “putting kids in cages, ripping mothers from their babies” and “weaponiz[ing] religion.”
“There’s so much work to do to combat white supremacy, homophobia, transphobia, sexism — all the ways in which people are treated as less than the children of God that they are,” Dietrich told Religion News Service.
Despite being praised by many evangelicals from the left the hymn has not been embraced by all: “Deitrich’s words are not elevating or edifying; they are divisive,” Goins-Phillips, of Faithwire, writes. “Our worship and discipleship should be challenging, but it should be challenging in ways that call us back to Scripture, not to our anger at one another.”
Opponents of President Trump will gather next week to perform an occult ritual to bind the President and his administration. It is believed thousands will participate in the Halloween ritual.
The ritual has been regularly performed since the President’s inauguration. And those who do it believe the impeachment proceedings are evidence of their success. “I’m willing to go on record and say it’s working,” said Michael Hughes, who came up with the ritual.
Thousand of people all over the country and across the globe perform the ritual during every waning crescent moon. But with Halloween more people are expected to participate.
Karen Tibbits-Williams, a New Zealand-based witch said the purpose for the ritual was “to stop the harm” Trump’s administration is doing.
“I’ve seen for myself, many times over, the power and effectiveness of magick. My confidence in the power and efficacy of our Binding — and the effect which it is having — is absolute. I don’t ‘believe’ that it works … I know it does,” she said.
Witchcraft is on the rise in the US: from 8,000 in 1990 to around 340,000 in 2008. However a survey in 2014 suggested those practising Wicca to be 1.5 million.
Leader of the House Nancy Pelosi has been rejecting calls within her own party for months to begin impeachment proceedings against the President. However she may now find herself in a high stakes game with could cost her her job and give Trump a second term.
Now that she has began proceedings failure to deliver will be seen has unacceptable by the radicals within her party. And with the President saying he will release the transcript of his conversation with the Ukrainian President things might very soon turn uncomfortable for Pelosi.
Furthermore the first casualty of any investigation may be Biden himself. If it found that he did use his influence to help his son, it will cost him his chance in the 2020 elections. Even if he has done nothing wrong the appearance that his son has built a highly profitable career free-riding on his VP father’s back will sit very uncomfortable with progressives across the nation.
Ely Erlich in a recent online article posed the question: “Is Donald Trump a bad president or does the media exaggerate his faults?”
Erlich argues that the media is in fact pushing a false narrative. He used as his argument the coverage CNN and NYT gave to a press conference in the White House where the President hosted people from throughout the world sharing their stories about the religious persecution they had experience.
CNN-NYT pushed the narrative the President was unfeeling, and racist in his dealings with a young Yazidi Christian, who had been raped and watched members of her family massacred. The news story said the President did not know her story. However the reason for the conference was to allow the woman and the others present to tell their stories to the global media, allowing them a voice, highlighting the injustices they had suffered. Attendees to the event praised the President for his work in this area, and the opportunity to share their stories. However, CNN and NYT turned the story into an attack on the President.
