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.

Even in the newspapers who go out of their way to not report everything, one can not read Swedish news without falling over all the evidence one needs to see Trump is correct. The immorality of American news trying to pretend as if there is not a tinderbox situation brewing throughout Europe is nauseating.

This is why these people aren't journalists. If they didn't have data on it, a journalist would a) get data(there's enough to choke an elephant which means they're ignoring it or not looking) or b) Go on-site to gather data for themselves(clearly not doing). They are propagandist courtiers who've lost their unbridled access to their drug, power; and they clearly don't know what to do. So like any drug addict, they lash out at the person who is taking away their high even though it could set the world on fire. There is not enough disdain to be had for these people.

Let's see how well he's able to erode America if at all. I think all America needs is a shake up of the elite classes. For too long have we been dominated by what we're told by the corrupt media, the big oils, and capitalists and their lobbyists.

Although Trump is himself a billionaire, at least he's not in the pocket of the said elites. I'd rather to have Putin, who despite what the media tells you has limited influence on Trump and his policymaking, rather than the establishment acting as the puppetmasters who aren't afraid to wage war, to use media as a tool to discredit their political enemies and to pool the general public.

A senior administration official said the order, which Trump revised after federal courts held up his original immigration and refugee ban, will target only those same seven Muslim-majority countries — Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan and Libya.

The official said that green-card holders and dual citizens of the U.S. and any of those countries are exempt. The new draft also no longer directs authorities to single out — and reject — Syrian refugees when processing new visa applications.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the order before it's made public. The official noted that the draft is subject to change ahead of its signing, which Trump said could come sometime this week.

Asked about the revised order, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the document circulating was a draft and that a final version should be released soon. The Department of Homeland Security did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Wall Street Journal also reported that the current draft of the revised order focused on the seven countries but excluded those with green cards.

Trump's original executive order triggered chaos at airports around the world, as travelers were detained when the order rapidly went into effect, and U.S. permanent residents known as green-card holders were among them. Attorneys provided legal assistance to those held and protesters descended on the airports as news of the order's implementation spread. In its original form, the order temporarily suspended all travel to the U.S. for citizens of those seven Muslim-majority countries for 90 days.

The original order also called for Homeland Security and State department officials, along with the director of national intelligence, to review what information the government needs to fully vet would-be visitors and come up with a list of countries that can't or won't make the information available. It said the government will give countries 60 days to start providing the information or citizens from those countries will be barred from traveling to the United States.

Even if Syrian refugees are no longer automatically rejected under the new order, the pace of refugees entering the U.S. from all countries is likely to slow significantly. That's because even when the courts put Trump's original ban on hold, they left untouched Trump's 50,000-per-year refugee cap, a cut of more than half from the cap under the Obama administration.

The U.S. has already taken in more than 35,000 refugees this year, leaving less than 15,000 spots before hitting Trump's cap, according to a U.S. official. That means that for the rest of this fiscal year, the number of refugees being let in per week will likely fall to a fraction of what it had been under the Obama administration's cap of 110,000.

Earlier this month, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco refused to reinstate Trump's ban, unanimously rejecting the administration's claim of presidential authority, questioning its motives and concluding that the order was unlikely to survive legal challenges. The pushback prompted Trump to tweet "SEE YOU IN COURT!" and he has since lashed out at the judicial branch, accusing it of issuing a politically motivated decision.

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said Saturday that Trump is working on a "streamlined" version of his executive order banning travel from the seven nations to iron out the difficulties that landed his first order in the courts.

Speaking at the Munich Security Conference about combating terrorism, Kelly said Trump's original order was designed as a "temporary pause" to allow him to "see where our immigration and vetting system has gaps — and gaps it has — that could be exploited."

He said the Trump administration was surprised when U.S. courts blocked the executive order and now "the president is contemplating releasing a tighter, more streamlined version" of the travel ban.

Kelly said this next time he will be able to "make sure that there's no one caught in the system of moving from overseas to our airports."

Kelly mentioned "seven nations" again on Saturday, leading to speculation they will all be included in Trump's next executive order.

Trump's order sparked an immediate backlash and sowed chaos and outrage, with travelers detained at airports, panicked families searching for relatives and protesters marching against the sweeping measure — parts of which were blocked by several federal courts.

Protests were held across the country, including in sight of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island in New York City, and at international airports where travelers were temporarily detained.

President Trump caused confusion during a Saturday rally in Florida when he said: “You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this?” Trump then mentioned the French cities of Nice and Paris and the Belgian capital, Brussels. The three European cities were attacked by terrorists over the past two years.

Although Trump did not explicitly say it, his remarks were widely perceived in the United States and abroad as suggesting that an attack had occurred Friday night in Sweden.

President Trump will likely sign a revised travel ban this week, according to a senior White House official. It will target the same seven countries listed in his original executive order, but exempts travelers who already have a U.S. visa and green-card holders. As before, dual citizens of the U.S. are also exempt. The new draft also no longer directs authorities to reject Syrian refugees when processing new visa applications.

The purpose of the order is to buy U.S. officials the time it needs to find better information to fully vet would-be visitors from those countries whose governments currently can't or won't make sufficient information available.

President Trump announced that H.R. McMaster, one of the most celebrated soldiers of both the Gulf War and Iraq War, will replace Michael Flynn as National Security Advisor. The position does not require Senate confirmation.

A 1984 graduate of West Point, he was a captain during the Gulf War in 1991 commanding Eagle Troop of the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment at the Battle of 73 Easting. During that battle, McMaster's tank was leading 8 other tanks when he crested a dip in the terrain and suddenly came upon 100 enemy tanks and fighting vehicles. Despite this, the nine tanks of Eagle Troop destroyed over eighty Iraqi Republican Guard tanks and other vehicles without loss. McMaster was awarded the Silver Star. (See attached video of then-Captain McMaster discussing the battle)

In 2004, he was assigned to command the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment in its second tour in Iraq and was assigned the mission of securing the city of Tal Afar. That mission culminated with the defeat of the city's insurgent strongholds. The tactics he pioneered led to the first success in overcoming the Iraqi insurgency and eventual blueprint for turning the war around.

Since that time, he has risen through the ranks, eventually all the way to Lieutenant General. In 2014, McMaster made Time's list of the 100 most influential people and was hailed as "the architect of the future U.S. Army" and "the 21st century Army's pre-eminent warrior-thinker... who has repeatedly bucked the system and survived to join its senior ranks."

McMaster believes that clear and concise goals are necessary before any military action takes place, a view he laid out in his 1997 book Dereliction of Duty: Lyndon Johnson, Robert McNamara, The Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Lies that Led to rVietnam, which examines the failure of American leadership to provide a successful plan of action to win the Vietnam War. In it, McMaster argues that military actions will ultimately fail when military objectives are sparsely detailed, confusing, and conflicting.

He is currently Director of the Army Capabilities Integration Center and Deputy Commanding General, Futures, U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command.

President Trump’s personal lawyer and a former business associate met privately in New York City last month with a member of the Ukrainian parliament to discuss a peace plan for that country that could give Russia long-term control over territory it seized in 2014 and lead to the lifting of sanctions against Moscow.

The meeting with Andrii V. Artemenko, the Ukrainian politician, involved Michael Cohen, a Trump Organisation lawyer since 2007, and Felix Sater, a former business partner who worked on real estate projects with Trump’s company.

The occurrence of the meeting, first reported Sunday by the New York Times, suggests that some in the region aligned with Russia have been seeking to use Trump business associates as an informal conduit to a new president who has signaled a desire to forge warmer relations with Russia. The discussion took place amid increasingly intense scrutiny of the ties between Trump’s team and Russia, as well as escalating investigations on Capitol Hill of the determination by U.S. intelligence agencies that the Kremlin intervened in last year’s election to help Trump.

The Times reported that Cohen said he left the proposal in a sealed envelope in the office of then-national security adviser Michael T. Flynn while visiting Trump in the White House. The meeting took place days before Flynn’s resignation last week following a report in The Washington Post that he had misled Vice President Pence about his discussions in December of election-related sanctions with the Russian ambassador to the United States.

Cohen, speaking with The Post on Sunday, acknowledged that the meeting took place and that he had left with the peace proposal in hand.

But Cohen said he did not take the envelope to the White House and did not discuss it with anyone. He called suggestions to the contrary “fake news.”

“I acknowledge that the brief meeting took place, but emphatically deny discussing this topic or delivering any documents to the White House and/or General Flynn,” Cohen said. He said he told the Ukrainian official that he could send the proposal to Flynn by writing him at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

The Times stood by its story Sunday.

“Mr. Cohen told the Times in no uncertain terms that he delivered the Ukraine proposal to Michael Flynn’s office at the White House. Mr. Sater told the Times that Mr. Cohen had told him the same thing,” Matt Purdy, a deputy managing editor, said in a statement to the Post.

The Times reported that the proposal discussed at last month’s meeting included a plan to require the withdrawal of Russian forces from Eastern Ukraine. Then Ukrainian voters would decide in a referendum whether Crimea, the territory Russia seized in 2014, would be leased to Russia for a 50-year or a 100-year term. Artemenko said Russian leaders supported his proposal, the Times reported.

In Ukraine, Artemenko belongs to a bloc that opposes the nation’s current president, Petro O. Poroshenko. It is a group whose efforts were previously aided by Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign manager, who had advised Ukraine’s previous pro-Vladimir Putin president until his ouster amid public protests in 2014 — a development that sparked the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Manafort told the Post that he had “no role” in Artemenko’s initiative.

In his remarks at the Munich Security Conference, Vice President Mike Pence said that Russia must be held “accountable” regarding Ukraine and “demand they honour” the Minsk ceasefire agreement. 

The back-channel discussions could disrupt delicate diplomacy between the new Trump administration and Poroshenko. Artemenko told the Times he hopes evidence of corruption by Poroshenko could be used to effect his ouster, a necessary first step to pushing his peace proposal.

Cohen said the meeting between the Ukrainian politician, Cohen and Sater lasted less than 15 minutes and took place at a New York hotel.

He said he received the proposal and took it with him from the hotel meeting out of politeness but never relayed its contents to anyone in the administration. He said he attended the meeting as a courtesy to Sater, a former business colleague.

Cohen has been in the public spotlight since his name was mentioned in a dossier prepared by a former British spy hired by Trump’s political opponents suggesting he had once served as a liaison between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign, an allegation he has emphatically denied.

Cohen said no federal investigators have contacted him about the dossier, which was widely distributed to Washington journalists and published by BuzzFeed, and he called the ongoing suggestion of federal interest in the case infuriating. “It has to stop,” he said.

Cohen had worked for a decade for the Trump Organisation, where he earned a reputation as a trusted and aggressive defender of the celebrity mogul. He left the company in January to assume a more amorphous role as Trump’s personal counsel. The role holds no public policy portfolio.

Sater pleaded guilty in 1998 to participating in a Mafia-related stock fraud. His sentencing was delayed while he secretly cooperated with the government on criminal and national security investigations. Law enforcement officials have praised him for his participation.

Working out of an office just below Trump’s in Trump Tower with a development company called Bayrock Group, Sater had worked on several licensed Trump projects, including the Trump SoHo in New York. He also worked on proposals to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, a decade ago and again in 2015. He has said he met with Trump’s children Ivanka and Donald Jr. in the foreign capital in 2006 at Trump’s request.

In 2010, Trump allowed Sater to use a business card identifying himself as a senior adviser to the Trump Organisation while he prospected deals. Still, when Sater’s criminal past, which had long been sealed because of his government cooperation, emerged, Trump claimed to barely know the Russian immigrant. In sworn testimony in 2013 in litigation related to a failed project with which Sater had been involved, Trump said he would not recognise Sater if they were in the same room.

Sater confirmed that the meeting at the New York hotel took place at his request after he heard about the peace plan from Artemenko.

“I got excited about trying to stop a war,” he said. “I thought if this could improve conditions in three countries, good, so be it.”

Sater said he held the recent meeting out of honorable intent only. He said he had no business deals in Ukraine and without thought of any business deal or inappropriate relationship with a foreign power.

“I was not practicing diplomacy and I was not having clandestine meetings,” Sater said. He said he called Cohen because his Ukrainian lawmaker acquaintance “was emphatic that he wants the war to end.” He said the conversations with Cohen and Artemenko were not “a back channel to the Kremlin or anything like that.”

Sater said he thought Cohen intended to give the document to Flynn but was unable to do so because Flynn was embroiled in a crisis over his own job and resigned days later.

“He had other things on his mind,” Sater said.
