Donald John Trump, Sr. (born June 14, 1946) is the 45th US president. Before the 2016 election, he is an American business magnate, investor, television personality and author. He is the chairman and president of The Trump Organization and the founder of Trump Entertainment Resorts. Trump's extravagant lifestyle, outspoken manner, and role on the NBC reality show The Apprentice have made him a well-known celebrity who was No. 17 on the 2011 Forbes Celebrity 100 list.

Considered one of best known real estate entrepreneurs in the United States, Trump is the son of Fred Trump, a wealthy New York City real-estate developer. He worked for his father's firm, Elizabeth Trump & Son, while attending the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and in 1968 officially joined the company. He was given control of the company in 1971 and renamed it The Trump Organization.

In 2010, Trump expressed an interest in becoming a candidate for President of the United States in the 2012 election, though in May 2011, he announced he would not be a candidate. Trump was a featured speaker at the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). In 2013, Trump spent over $1 million to research a possible run for president of the United States in 2016.

At least this is what I think. There's no reason to believe he's a white supremist. However, I really do think he made a mistake thinking the neo-nazists are his friends and hereby being reluctant to distance himself from the Ku Klux Klan nazists.

In a fractious to-and-fro with reporters at a press conference on Tuesday, Trump blamed both the white nationalists and the counter-demonstrators for the escalation in violence that preceded the fatal car-ramming.

The US President's remarks provoked an angry reaction domestically, with even prominent Republicans including Senator John McCain calling on Trump to condemn the racists behind the rally.

In failing to condemn unequivocally the white nationalist movement Trump was guilty of unacceptable relativism. Clearly, equating the two sides rather than distancing himself from the Nazi potential on display there was a huge mistake. That just goes to show how interwoven a segment of Trump’s supporters are with the radical right-wing movement in the United States. His chief ideologist (Steve) Bannon is close to them

China's President Xi Jinping has urged Donald Trump and North Korea to avoid "words and actions" that worsen tensions, state media say.

Mr Trump and North Korea have been exchanging hostile rhetoric, with the US president threatening to rain "fire and fury" on the North.

But China, North Korea's only major ally, has been urging restraint.

A White House statement said the US and China agreed North Korea must stop "provocative and escalatory behaviour".

A statement by North Korea's official KCNA news agency issued on Saturday said the Trump administration "had better talk and act properly," if it did not want "the American empire to meet its tragic doom".

Long-standing tensions over North Korea's nuclear programme worsened when it tested two intercontinental ballistic missiles in July.

The regime was also angered by last week's UN decision to increase economic sanctions against it.

According to Chinese state media, Mr Xi told Mr Trump in a phone call that "all relevant parties" should stop "words and deeds" that would exacerbate the situation.

Mr Xi also stressed China and the US shared "common interests" over denuclearisation and maintaining peace on the Korean peninsula.

A White House statement on the phone call did not mention the apparent plea to the US president.

It stressed the two men enjoyed a close relationship, which would "hopefully lead to a peaceful resolution of the North Korea problem".

President Trump has previously chided China for not reining in North Korea, saying it could do "a lot more".

President Donald Trump on Friday said he would not rule out a "military option" in Venezuela as the ruling regime there consolidates power.

"We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option, if necessary," Trump told reporters at his New Jersey golf club on Friday.

The president did not answer a question about whether American troops would lead a potential operation.

 
"We don't talk about it. But a military operation, a military option, is certainly something we could pursue," he responded.

Reuters reported later Friday that the Pentagon said the White House hadn't given it any orders on Venezuela.

In response, Venezuela's defense minister said that Trump's threat of military intervention was "a crazy act."

Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro had requested a phone call with Trump, the White House said. Trump, according to an administration statement, will gladly speak with the nation's leader when democracy has been restored in the country.

The Trump administration has issued sanctions against Maduro, whom it calls a "dictator," and more than two dozen other former and current officials. The U.S. accuses Maduro's regime of violating human rights and subverting democratic processes.

Trump's comment about possible military action comes after a week of the president escalating rhetoric against the isolated regime in North Korea, which is pushing forward with nuclear and missile programs in the face of international opposition. On Friday morning, Trump said "military solutions are now in place" should "North Korea act unwisely."

The international community has recently condemned Maduro's moves to consolidate power. He has been accused of setting up a powerful constitutional assembly to push aside opposition.

In an address to that assembly, Maduro expressed a desire to have a dialogue with Trump.

"Mr. Donald Trump, here is my hand," he said.

Venezuela's political turmoil comes as its economy has been battered by both low oil prices and policy.

The decision to ban transgender from serving in the military was ultimately a right, albeit painful, decision. Not everyone is fit to serve. This is the military. They are supposed to fight. No distraction or political correctnesss should be allowed.

Dude doesn't know a thing about PR. He sucks at managing his image. But I feel like he doesn't kiss the up to the bankers and the establishment of the new world order, which is a huge plus.

I agree with the decision to end the covert CIA program. I didn't like it when this program was first reported back in 2013 under Obama.

If we're going to insert ourselves into a civil war, we should just do it. Send the military, not civilians with zero accountability. The CIA has an awful track record when it comes to meddling in foreign wars. This action in Syria, where Obama explicitly didn't want in, is no better.

The larger problem for us in Syria is that it's basically been ground zero for a proxy war with Russia. I don't have to like the Russian government to realize that having two major nuclear powers engaging in a proxy war is dangerous.

Arming rebels through the CIA was a really bad way of participating in that civil war.

President Trump has decided to end the CIA’s covert program to arm and train moderate Syrian rebels battling the government of Bashar al-Assad, a move long sought by Russia, according to U.S. officials.

The program was a central plank of a policy begun by the Obama administration in 2013 to put pressure on Assad to step aside, but even its backers have questioned its efficacy since Russia deployed forces in Syria two years later.

Officials said the phasing out of the secret program reflects Trump’s interest in finding ways to work with Russia, which saw the anti-Assad program as an assault on its interests. The shuttering of the program is also an acknowledgment of Washington’s limited leverage and desire to remove Assad from power.

Just three months ago, after the United States accused Assad of using chemical weapons, Trump launched retaliatory airstrikes against a Syrian air base. At the time, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, said that “in no way do we see peace in that area with Assad at the head of the Syrian government.”

Officials said Trump made the decision to scrap the CIA program nearly a month ago, after an Oval Office meeting with CIA Director Mike Pompeo and national security adviser H.R. McMaster ahead of a July 7 meeting in Germany with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Spokesmen for the National Security Council and the CIA declined to comment.

After the Trump-Putin meeting, the United States and Russia announced an agreement to back a new cease-fire in southwest Syria, along the Jordanian border, where many of the CIA-backed rebels have long operated. Trump described the limited cease-fire deal as one of the benefits of a constructive working relationship with Moscow.

The move to end the secret program to arm the anti-Assad rebels was not a condition of the cease-fire negotiations, which were already well underway, said U.S. officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the secret program.

Trump’s dealings with Russia have been under heavy scrutiny because of the investigations into the Kremlin’s interference in the 2016 election. The decision on the CIA-backed rebels will be welcomed by Moscow, which focused its firepower on those fighters after it intervened in Syria in 2015.

Some current and former officials who support the program cast the move as a major concession.

“This is a momentous decision,” said a current official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a covert program. “Putin won in Syria.”

The decision will not affect a separate Pentagon-led effort to work with U.S.-backed Syrian rebels fighting the Islamic State. And the CIA-backed rebels were part of the larger moderate opposition.

Some analysts said the decision was likely to empower more radical groups inside Syria and damage the credibility of the United States.

“We are falling into a Russian trap,” said Charles Lister, a senior fellow at the Middle East Institute, who focuses on the Syrian resistance. “We are making the moderate resistance more and more vulnerable. . . . We are really cutting them off at the neck.”

Others said it was recognition of Assad’s entrenched position in Syria.

“It’s probably a nod to reality,” said Ilan Goldenberg, a former Obama administration official and director of the Middle East Security Program at the Center for a New American Security.

U.S. intelligence officials say battlefield gains by rebels in 2015 prompted Russia’s direct military intervention on the side of the Assad regime. Some U.S. officials and their allies in the region urged President Barack Obama to respond by providing the rebels with advanced anti­aircraft weapons so they could better defend themselves. But Obama balked, citing concerns about the United States getting pulled into a conflict with Russia.

Senior U.S. officials said that the covert program would be phased out over a period of months. It is also possible that some of the support could be redirected to other missions, such as fighting the Islamic State or making sure that the rebels can still defend themselves from attacks.

“This is a force that we can’t afford to completely abandon,” Goldenberg said. “If they are ending the aid to the rebels altogether, then that is a huge strategic mistake.”

U.S. officials said the decision had the backing of Jordan, where some of the rebels were trained, and appeared to be part of a larger Trump administration strategy to focus on negotiating limited cease-fire deals with the Russians.

Earlier this month, five days into the first cease-fire in southwest Syria, Trump indicated that another agreement was under discussion with Moscow. “We are working on the second cease-fire in a very rough part of Syria,” Trump said. “If we get that and a few more, all of a sudden we are going to have no bullets being fired in Syria.”

One big potential risk of shutting down the CIA program is that the United States may lose its ability to block other countries, such as Turkey and Persian Gulf allies, from funneling more sophisticated weapons — including man-portable air-defense systems, or MANPADS — to anti-Assad rebels, including more radical groups.

Toward the end of the Obama administration, some officials advocated ending the CIA program, arguing that the rebels would be ineffective without a major escalation in U.S. support. But the program still had the support of a majority of top Obama advisers, who argued that the United States couldn’t abandon its allies on the ground and give up on the moderate opposition because of the damage that it would do to U.S. standing in the region.

Even those who were skeptical about the program’s long-term value, viewed it as a key bargaining chip that could be used to wring concessions from Moscow in negotiations over Syria’s future.

“People began thinking about ending the program, but it was not something you’d do for free,” said a former White House official. “To give [the program] away without getting anything in return would be foolish.”

Donald Trump reportedly told Theresa May he will not make a state visit to the UK until he is guaranteed a "better reception". The US President asked the Prime Minister to prepare a "warm welcome" before he agrees to set a date, it has been claimed. 

The pair spoke on the phone to discuss the planned state visit, which has now been postponed until next year. 

"I haven’t had great coverage out there lately, Theresa," Mr Trump told Ms May, according to a transcript of the conversation seen by The Sun. 

Ms May replied: "Well, you know what the British press are like."

But Mr Trump added: "I still want to come, but I’m in no rush.

"So, if you can fix it for me, it would make things a lot easier.

"When I know I’m going to get a better reception, I’ll come and not before."

Over 1.8 million people signed a petition to prevent Mr Trump from being honoured with a formal state visit. 

The petition reads: “Donald Trump should be allowed to enter the UK in his capacity as head of the US Government, but he should not be invited to make an official State Visit because it would cause embarrassment to Her Majesty the Queen.”

It comes just days after French President Emmanuel Macron wooed his American counterpart during an official state visit to France. 

The pair took a tour of the Les Invalides war memorial and Elysee Palace before a bilateral meeting, followed by a luxurious dinner in the Eiffel Tower.

Mr Trump was also the guest of honour at Friday's military parade on the Champs-Elysees - the first time a US President had attended since George Bush in 1989

I am by no means a trump supporter (I would punch that fucker if I ever met him), but news agencies are capitalizing on the Russia thing (whether there is actual evidence or just speculation). At any rate, I doubt they will be able to prove anything and even if they do, I doubt Trump would be impeached.
