President Trump Blasts London’s Mayor: ‘Stone Cold Loser; Very Dumb’

President Donald Trump wasted no time in responding to petulant taunts by London’s Muslim mayor, labelling him a “stone cold loser” from Air Force One minutes before landing in the UK for his three-day state visit that includes an audience with Queen Elizabeth.

The president also said Mayor Sadiq Khan is “very dumb” before touching down at Stansted Airport, just outside of London.

He wrote: “Sadiq Khan, who by all accounts has done a terrible job as Mayor of London, has been foolishly ‘nasty’ to the visiting President of the United States, by far the most important ally of the United Kingdom.”

In a tweet in which he compared Khan to New York City’s socialist mayor, Mr Trump added: “Kahn reminds me very much of our very dumb and incompetent Mayor of NYC, de Blasio, who has also done a terrible job – only half his height.”

Sky reports: The president’s comments come after Mr Khan told Sky News the UK is wrong to “roll out the red carpet” to Mr Trump.

The London mayor has said some of the president’s actions and policies since being inaugurated in 2017 have been “abhorrent and offensive”.

Mr Khan’s spokesman said in reply to Mr Trump’s tweets on Monday: “This is much more serious than childish insults which should be beneath the president of the United States.

“Sadiq is representing the progressive values of London and our country, warning that Donald Trump is the most egregious example of a growing far-right threat around the globe, which is putting at risk the basic values that have defined our liberal democracies for more than 70 years.”

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, who was seen speaking with the president on the runway of Stansted Airport, has criticised the Labour party for boycotting the state visit.

He also appeared to come out on the president’s side over his tweets about Mr Khan, saying the London mayor had previously made some “choice insults” about Mr Trump.

Mr Hunt said: “All I would say is that spat started because the Mayor of London and other people in the Labour party decided to boycott this visit and I think that is just totally inappropriate.”

Donald Trump to Mexico: ‘We Want Action, Not Talk’

President Donald Trump has ridiculed the Mexican diplomatic delegation which will arrive in Washington, DC, on Wednesday, saying, “We want action, not talk.”

“Mexico is sending a big delegation to talk about the Border,” he tweeted Sunday afternoon. “Problem is, they’ve been “talking” for 25 years. We want action, not talk. They could solve the Border Crisis in one day if they so desired. Otherwise, our companies and jobs are coming back to the USA!”

The Mexican delegation is trying to prevent Trump from imposing escalating tariffs on Mexico’s exports if the country does not stop its export of illegal migrant labor to the United States. In the 12 months up to October 2019, Mexico’s territory is expected to serve as the delivery route for roughly 800,000 Latin American migrants who will damage Americans’ blue-collar wages, neighborhoods, and schools.

On Thursday, Mexico’s government published a response to Trump’s promise, saying that migrants have a right to walk into the United States.

Business groups also oppose the Trump tariff strategy partly because it will disrupt their cheap-labor production in Mexico.

Worse, if Trump’s plan succeeds, it would also slow or block their economic stimulus delivered by the inflow of Central American workers, consumers, and renters. The inflow is an indirect subsidy for companies because it reduces pressure on the companies to raise wages for Americans and also to hire sidelined, untrained, or low-quality American workers, or to buy the labor-saving machinery which makes Americans more productive and wealthy.

Earlier on Sunday, Trump dismissed the chances that Mexico’s government might quickly agree to help block the transshipment of cheap labor from Central America into U.S. worksites:

Trump’s focus on Mexico’s government comes as the Central American migration shows that a border fence or wall cannot work unless border laws are also reformed.

So, Trump’s deputies are using the tariff threat to persuade Mexico to sign a “safe third party” agreement which would allow U.S. border officials to return Central American migrants to Mexico or their home countries if they do not apply for asylum in Mexico.

The U.S. officials also want Mexico to better guard its 700-mile southern border with Guatemala. That task is made easier by the dense jungle which blocks easy passage for more than 500 miles of the Guatemalan-Mexico border.

Trump’s chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, described the administration’s goals during an interview on NBC’s Meet the Press Sunday show:

It’s much easier to secure that border than it is our border, because it’s so much shorter. It’s about a quarter of the length. They could do that. The Mexican government can crack down on their domestic terrorist organizations, their crime organizations. Right now, in Mexico, there’s roughly 100,000 people trying to move up to the U.S. border. They don’t do that by themselves. They do that with the cooperation of these, of these crime groups. The Mexicans can do more there.

Mulvaney also spotlighted the need for a “safe third country” deal with Mexico:

And lastly, they can make Mexico a safe third country. Keep in mind, if you — if you leave a country, say you leave El Salvador, and you say, “I’m seeking asylum,” the law says you’re supposed to seek asylum in the first safe country in which you arrive. Mexico is safe. The Mexican government can address this

Few establishment media outlets have described the administration’s goals or plans – or even ask Democrats if they would support a “safe third country” deal with Mexico. Instead, most prefer to spotlight business’ concerns and to argue that Trump’s strategy will hurt American consumers.

Mulvaney also argued that Mexico has not cooperated in securing the border:

Yeah, well, you assume, in that question, that we haven’t been having those conversations with the Mexicans, that of a sudden, this sort of came out of the blue, out of left field. And that’s not the case. You know we’ve been in contact with the Mexicans. One of the reasons that you have seen them slightly increase the number of people they’re taking back into Mexico is because we have been working with them for over, I think, almost two years now. So this –

…

What I told you before, about that group of 1,000 people crossing the border, was sort of the, the touchstone for this. But this is something the administration has taken up. I’ve been acting chief of staff now for about six months. I think we’ve probably discussed it two or three different times. So this is not a new idea. It was not out of left field.

Trump also used his Sunday tweets to slam Democrats for holding open the catch-and-release loopholes in the border fences:”

Many Democrats say the United States is a “nation of immigrants” — not of Americans. Democrats also prefer to portray the job-seeking economic migrants as needy refugees fleeing crime and fame, even though many of the migrants clearly state they are migrating to get U.S. jobs and to get their kids into U.S. classrooms.

Immigration Numbers

Each year, roughly four million young Americans join the workforce after graduating from high school or university.

But the federal government then imports about 1.1 million legal immigrants and refreshes a resident population of roughly 1.5 million white-collar visa workers — including approximately one million H-1B workers — and approximately 500,000 blue-collar visa workers.

The government also prints out more than one million work permits for foreigners, tolerates about eight million illegal workers, and does not punish companies for employing the hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants who sneak across the border or overstay their legal visas each year.

This policy of inflating the labor supply boosts economic growth for investors because it ensures that employers do not have to compete for American workers by offering higher wages and better working conditions.

This policy of flooding the market with cheap, foreign, white-collar graduates and blue-collar labor also shifts enormous wealth from young employees towards older investors, even as it also widens wealth gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, and hurts children’s schools and college educations. It also pushes Americans away from high-tech careers and sidelines millions of marginalized Americans, including many who are now struggling with fentanyl addictions. The labor policy also moves business investment and wealth from the heartland to the coastal cities, explodes rents and housing costs, shrivels real estate values in the Midwest, and rewards investors for creating low-tech, labor-intensive workplaces.

Video: BREAKING: JULIAN ASSANGE FOUND UNRESPONSIVE IN BELMARSH PRISON – EMERGENCY BROADCAST

Stranger Than Fiction News goes over the latest news on Julian Assange. He was found unresponsive! They’re killing him in prison most likely by poison! No other reason he would be unresponsive unless they’re poisoning his food or water.

And Trump who said over and over again, “I Love Wikileaks” is a No Show in supporting him when he needs it most! I’m very disappointed in Trump over Wikileaks and abandoning Julian Assange.

This is another reason why Americans are going to have to hit the streets before we ever get our freedom again. We’re going to need our own yellow vest movement and unite against the Federal Reserve slavery system, endless wars and all the other NWO evil it seems.

I support President Trump and would never vote against him but I am not happy about how he’s treated Assange! Without Wikileaks Trump would most likely not have won since we got the truth about Hillary, Podesta and the other satanic democrats.

I won’t cheer on Trump when I see him do dumb things like going after Assange, banning bump stocks, try to start a war with Iran. Tell Trump every time he does something dumb or foolish. Patriots must make our voices heard when our leaders do dumb things! Nobody gets a free ride! Open the Video

Trump Slams ‘Sleepy Joe’ at Rally: ‘He Wants to Save Every Country But Ours’

President Donald Trump voiced confidence Monday in his ability to win Pennsylvania in 2020 and took a new swipe at one of his leading Democratic rivals, telling rallygoers in the state that native son Joe Biden had abandoned them by representing Delaware in the Senate.

The president’s visit to Pennsylvania, intended to boost Republican congressional candidate Fred Keller’s prospects over Democrat Marc Friedenberg in a Tuesday special election for an open seat, had as much to do with helping his own chance for reelection as it did with pushing Keller over the finish line.

“We’ve got to win tomorrow, Fred,” Trump told a cheering rally crowd at a private hangar at Williamsport Regional Airport.

Trump’s visit to the key battleground state also came two days after Biden held a campaign rally in Philadelphia, and the former vice president wasn’t far from Trump’s mind.

The president accused Biden, who was born in Pennsylvania and has long ties there, of deserting his state by representing Delaware in the Senate. Biden moved to neighboring Delaware with his family as a boy.

“He left you for another state, and he didn’t take care of you,” Trump said.

He also referred to the former vice president by the nickname he had coined for him: “Sleepy Joe.”

“Sleepy Joe said that he’s running to, quote, ‘save the world,'” Trump said. “Well, he was. He was going to save every country but ours.”

Biden said Monday in Nashville, Tennessee, that he was running on a pledge to restore the soul of the country. He has frequently talked on the campaign trail about the president’s divisive rhetoric and said another four years of Trump would “fundamentally change the character of this nation.”

Trump, who spoke in the open air with Air Force One behind him, highlighted the economy’s performance under his leadership and suggested those numbers would make him virtually unbeatable.

“Politics is a crazy world, but when you have the best employment numbers in history, when you have the best unemployment numbers in history … I don’t know, how the hell do you lose this election, right?” Trump said. The current unemployment rate of 3.6% is actually the lowest since 1969, when it stood at 3.5%. Unemployment was even lower than that in the early 1950s, and much lower, under 2%, during three years of World War II.

Keller himself offered a rousing endorsement of Trump, saying he wants to go to Congress to be a vote for Trump. Keller told Trump the people of this region of Pennsylvania “have been behind you since Day One, and, Mr. President, our support for you is as strong today as it ever was.”

“In 2016, Pennsylvania put Donald Trump over the top. And in 2020, we’re going to do it again,” Keller said.

Trump uses his campaign rallies to disparage various Democratic candidates for president, but he has been heavily focused on Biden, suggesting he may be worried about the possibility of facing off next year against the longtime politician.

‘100 Percent’: Trump Calls for Biden-China Ties Exposed by Peter Schweizer to Be Investigated

Appearing recently on the Fox News Channel’s The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton, President Donald Trump called for the Biden family to be investigated over their business links to the Chinese government revealed in Secret Empires, the New York Times bestselling book by Government Accountability Institute president and Breitbart News senior editor-at-large Peter Schweizer. Open the Video

A partial transcript is as follows:

STEVE HILTON: On the swamp, there was one example of it that I just got so angry about and we talked about it on the show, and you saw it too. Obama’s head of cybersecurity then becomes a lobbyist on cybersecurity for Huawei and that’s all perfectly above board. He declared it. There’s nothing you can do about it. Don’t you think that should just not be allowed, that you shouldn’t be allowed to lobby for a foreign government?

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: I would be all for that. I think it should be a lifetime ban. Some people say five years. We’re putting in for five years. It’s very hard because the same people that are working in government, they work in government and then they take these unbelievable jobs. That happens with me too. They’re part of your campaign and all of a sudden they’re working with these– and it’s a very tough thing. There’s a very fine line. But I would love to see a five-year ban. I’d actually like to see a lifetime ban. Look at Joe Biden.

HILTON: But it’s the lobbying for foreign governments, the foreign governments, they have Ambassadors and Embassies. Why do they need these lobbyists?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I think it’s a disgrace. Look at Joe Biden. He calls [Ukraine] and says “Don’t you dare prosecute. If you don’t fire this prosecutor.” The prosecutor was after his son. He said if you fire the prosecutor, you’ll be okay, and if you don’t fire the prosecutor we’re not giving you two-billion dollars in loan guarantees or whatever he was supposed to give. Can you imagine if I did that?

HILTON: Well, nevermind that. Look at the relationship with China. I call him “Joe China.” Don’t you think that should be investigated, that financial connection? The Chinese government put in billions of dollars into Biden family businesses.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: 100 percent. It’s a disgrace And then he says China is not a competitor of ours. China is a massive competitor of ours. They want to take over the world.

White House initiative to hold social media to account for censorship and bias

In the last few years, president Trump has been the primary target of social media and search engine manipulation of the algorithms used for the social engineering of entire populations, as the DailyMail quantified a few days ago. The bias is between 2:1 and 3:1 to the advantage of leftist media, but unfortunately this is not being addressed.

What is, is equally important, is the silencing of individual voices and deplatforming, Facebook’s locking out Robert Spencer and shadow banning this site, as well as many others.

It’s the using of broken shields on websites such as ours, implying that in some way the site is unsafe, maybe malicious and not to be trusted.

I see it daily in the comments on this site, “I lost my Twitter account for saying…”. The right to free speech is being eroded rapidly. I don’t bother with social media accounts anymore, as they get mass reported because of my connection here. That’s just not right. Facebook, Twitter and Google are now monopolies and they have a duty to act fairly and without bias.

We have hundreds of articles on this site referencing free speech.

Amy Mek, is constantly and aggressively attacked online, and Twitter allows this.

It’s now fairly common for defenders of human rights and dignity to be threatened following complaints about the breaking of sharia law. I have seen dozens affected by Twitter enforcing sharia law at Pakistans request such as here at michellemalkin.com.

Being unable to raise funds to generate content by Patreon or even have a credit card account is another attack on defenders of democratic values.

But back to President Trump (sadly not mine, I suffer under the government leadership of a little potato), the White House has launched a campaign to collect evidence from those affected:

You can fill out the details of how you have been affected HERE. We can only hope that they will use this evidence to hold these tech giants to account, and break the lie that they are unbiased. This defines behavior fascism. Fox news ran a great video piece on the recent mass banning by Facebook. Open the Video

Pentagon awards $646 million contract for border wall in Arizona

The U.S. Defense Department said on Wednesday it had awarded a $646 million contract to a construction company to design and build a replacement for the border wall in Arizona.

In a statement, the Pentagon said the work by Albuquerque, New Mexico-based Southwest Valley Constructors was expected to be completed by Jan. 31, 2020. The work will be performed in the Tucson sector, which includes most of the Arizona border with Mexico. The Pentagon did not indicate the length of the wall to be built.

President Donald Trump has ordered the Pentagon to transfer funds to help build a border wall after he failed to secure funding from Congress.

Last week, the Pentagon said acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan had approved the transfer of $1.5 billion from the department to build more than 80 miles (130 km) of barriers on the border.

Immigration is a signature issue of Trump’s presidency and re-election campaign. He declared a national emergency in order to redirect funding to build a wall without the approval of Congress.

Trump immigration plan revamps asylum, requires work skills and learning English


President Trump unveiled his immigration plan at the White House on May 16. His plan includes creating a merit based selection process. By The White House
WASHINGTON

President Donald Trump’s new plan to overhaul the immigration system would require immigrants to learn English, create a new visa for highly skilled workers and revamp asylum laws in a push for more merit-based decisions on who is allowed to stay in the country.

Trump declared that the number of immigrants would neither increase nor decrease. He announced that his proposal would create a new “Build America Visa” for “extraordinarily talented individuals,” high-skilled professionals and top graduate students from American universities. Democrats immediately denounced the proposal.

“Our proposal is pro-American, pro-immigrant and pro-worker,” Trump said on Thursday in the White House Rose Garden. “It’s just common sense. It will help all of our people including millions of devoted immigrants to achieve the American dream.”

The Trump immigration proposal touts the “gold standard of border security” and represents an effort to rally Republicans, who are divided on key aspects of this issue. But despite stiff enforcement measures one crucial faction, the immigration hardliners who helped Trump get elected, is already wary about whether they want to remain in the inner circle if this is the starting point.

The plan led by Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and senior advisor, is facing push back from immigration hardliners who are concerned that it does not actually cut immigration levels as had past proposals from the Trump administration.

The plan also authorizes Customs and Border Protection to raise customs fees and fines, which will be directed to a fund to support border security and trade. A new biometric entry/exit system would also be implemented and agencies will be directed to stop issuing visas to citizens of recalcitrant countries that will not accept back deported nationals, according to a written summary obtained by McClatchy.

“It seems to me that they are trying to pack in as much stuff that hawks will like, because they know that hawks are not happy that the numbers are slated to stay the same,” said Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies, who is in regular discussions with the administration.

It also includes a mandatory federal employment verification program, such as E-Verify.

“The President’s proposal will ensure that all employees are legally authorized to work,” according to the summary.

The plan has little to no chance of going anywhere with Democrats who are already describing it as “inhumane.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham , R-South Carolina, one of Trump’s closest allies in Congress, said any potential legislation has no chance of becoming law without Democratic support. And Trump’s plan, he said, doesn’t address the 11 million people here illegally, which is a priority for Democrats.

Asked if Trump is willing to work with Democrats, Graham said: “I talked to him this morning. I hope so. It might be so poisoned around here they don’t want to give him a win on anything. If they do want to work with him then he’s gotta show a willingness to work with them. He has in the past but we fell short.”

But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, said the administration has yet to brief them on the plan and questioned the use of the word “merit” in the immigration plan.

“It is really a condescending word,” Pelosi said. “Are they saying families are without merit? Are they saying most of the people who come to the United States in the history of our country are without merit?”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York took to the Senate floor to criticize Trump for presenting a “political document” and not a serious plan, that he said fails to address those here illegally and the so-called Dreamers who were brought to the country illegally as children. He accused the White House of pressing “partisan, radical, anti-immigrant policies” that the administration has pushed since the beginning.

“That goes to the root of what is wrong with this administration’s approach to immigration,” Schumer said. “And if they think they can repeat what they failed to do in the past — if they try to repeat it saying ‘okay we’ll let Dreamers in, but you accept a whole lot of bad things,’ which is why immigration failed last time, last year. It ain’t happening. It ain’t happening.”

One of the most influential business groups, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, has been careful in its response. Executive Vice President and Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley said Thursday that the Chamber appreciated the administration’s efforts, and looked forward to working with the White House, but emphasized that more issues needed to addressed, “including the creation of market-based temporary worker programs and responsibly addressing the unauthorized alien population in the U.S.”

The plan is open to modification, those familiar with the discussions say, as officials in the White House keep trying to gain more Republican support. The details shared with McClatchy show the administration is making an effort to get hardliners on board by including stronger enforcement measures such as “expediting barrier construction,” tightening asylum rules, tracking down those who overstay their visas, and revisions to legal agreements that prevent children from being detained for more than 20 days.

“My plan expedites relief for legitimate asylum seekers by screening out the merit-less claims,” Trump said. “If you have a proper claim, you will quickly be admitted. If you don’t you will be promptly returned home.”

The White House estimates that now only about 12 percent of people obtaining green cards and citizenship do so based on “employment and skill,” with the majority entering through family connections, humanitarian reasons and the diversity lottery. Under Trump’s proposal, the White House says nearly 60 percent would enter due to employment and skill.

Green card applicants would also, under the proposal, need to be financially self-sufficient, have knowledge about the U.S. government — and speak English.

“The President’s plan is designed to attract immigrants who love America, share our values and want to contribute to society,” the written summary states. “This is achieved by requiring green card applicants to pass a U.S. civics exam and demonstrate English proficiency.”

Immigration hardliners have long been wary of Kushner’s plans, fearing that his corporate ties would lead him to pursue a plan that runs counter to Trump’s “Hire American” priorities.

Late last year, Kushner helped kick off a fresh discussion on immigration that reflected a new paradigm in the White House. It appeared to be a shift away from the priorities of 2017, Trump’s first year in office, that sought to prevent the influx of foreign workers who could displace American workers in favor of a new approach preferred by more traditional Republicans, particularly those close to the corporate sector who are desperate to attract more foreign workers to fill U.S. factories and tech hubs.

Trump won the Republican nomination and the presidency in 2016 by campaigning on a promise to crack down on immigration, build a border wall and end an Obama-era program that offered the so-called Dreamers temporary, renewable work permits.

Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, which supports reduction in immigration numbers, said the immigration system is in crisis and this could be the best plan offered for the next several decades – especially if Democrats later take control of the White House and Congress.

While the numbers need to be reduced, Stein said the proposal’s limits to asylum, cuts to extended family migration, and movement toward a merit system would reduce pressure to increase immigration numbers. He said it would also increase the income earning ability of the immigrants who are admitted.

“It needs a top to bottom, root and branch reform. It needs to be simplified and just like anything else, you have to turn the water off before you can fix the plumbing,” Stein said.
