Donald Trump Taunts Emmanuel Macron: ‘No Country More Nationalist than France’

President Donald Trump finally reacted on Tuesday to French President Emmanuel Macron’s speech condemning nationalism, noting his low approval ratings. “The problem is that Emmanuel suffers from a very low Approval Rating in France, 26 percent, and an unemployment rate of almost 10 percent,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Trump suggested that…

On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” Representative John Garamendi (D-CA) stated that the fires in California are an issue of climate change, not forest management, and President Trump lacks empathy and humanity.

It is gone. The homes are gone. Cars lined up across the roads. He doesn’t understand. He has no empathy. He doesn’t have any humanity. People have died,…

Monday on ABC’s “The View,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said since President Donald Trump has brought “hatred” to the forefront she believes she has “been called” to run for president in 2020 and restore “moral decency.” Gillibrand said, “We certainly need oversight and accountability. The Republican Congress refused to hold President Trump accountable on any of the issues that you mentioned, whether it’s Russia’s involvement in the election, whether it’s self-dealing or lining the pockets of the cabinet members and of Trump and his family.

Delingpole: Liberal California Blames Wildfires on Trump

President Trump was partly responsible for the California fires because he ‘denies’ climate change. At least that’s what liberal California would have us believe. The latest alarmist to make political capital out of the fires is California Governor Jerry Brown, who on Sunday – in the wake of celebrities including rocker Neil Young and talk show host Jimmy Kimmel – sought to pin them on climate change. According to Politico: Brown called California’s recent battles with massive wildfires “the new abnormal.” He added: “Scientists and the engineers and the firefighters…
