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.

The U.S. will  “squeeze” Iran “until the pips squeak” through the tough new round of trade sanctions now in force, National Security Advisor John Bolton promised Tuesday.

Democrats Aim for Surprise Upset in Special Mississippi Senate Runoff Election

Democrats in Mississippi are hoping to pull off an upset in the November 27 Senate runoff election between GOP nominee Sen. Cyndy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) and Democrat nominee former Rep. Mike Espy (D-MS). This is precisely what they did in the Alabama special Senate election in December of last year when Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) narrowly defeated embattled GOP nominee Roy Moore. At first glance, the odds in favor of a Democrat victory would appear improbable. President Trump easily defeated Hillary Clinton in Mississippi in 2016 by 18 points, 58 percent…

The pro-mass immigration GOP megadonor billionaire Koch brothers will “work aggressively” before the year’s end to obtain amnesty for the 3.5 million illegal aliens who are enrolled and eligible for President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The Koch brothers’ network of organizations — which campaigned for Democrats’ open borders policies in the midterm elections — are seeking to ram through their agenda of amnesty, prison release, and more free trade during the lame duck session of Congress before House Democrats are handed the majority in the new year.
