President Trump spent the weekend in Paris, France, where he avoided rain, where he got a lecture from French President Emmanuel Macron on the difference between Nationalism and Patriotism, where he received a thumbs-up from Russian President Vladimir Putin, and where he tweeted. 

After he Twitter ranted from Air Force One, President Trump, @ 10:52 p.m. eastern time (4:52 a.m., Paris time) and @ 11:04 eastern time (5:02 a.m. Paris Time), tweeted again that he did not know his acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker, who is filling in for the resigned/fired former Attorney General Jeff Sessions as the News Blender reported, here, here, and here, the appointment of the former AG’s chief of staff, who has faced harsh criticism. 

As the News Blender reported on Friday, President Trump told Fox & Friends that he knew Matt Whitaker in early October after a Washington Post article suggested Whitaker might replace Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. 

During an interview on Fox News Sunday with host Chris Wallace, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway explained that what President Trump meant by “not knowing Matt Whitaker,” was that he wasn’t appointing a “friend,” and that of course he knows Matt Whitaker having got to know him over the “course of the year.” 

Over the course of President Trump’s trip aboard he spent several tweets focused on the wildfires burning in several places throughout California. The first tweet regarding the terrible fires came @ 3:08 a.m. est. time, 9:08 a.m. Paris time. 

On Monday the death toll for the Camp Fire, that is burning through Northern California, is twenty-nine, according to CNN, it’s torched more than 6,400 homes. While the Camp Fire continues to burn, two fires burn through parts of Los Angeles, fueled by Santa Ana winds, according to CNN meteorologist Dave Hennen, the strongest of these winds, may come on Tuesday, “in fact, the strongest Santa Ana winds for the south may come on Tuesday, with gusts to near hurricane force.” Two people have died in Malibu as a result of the fire. 

On his trip aboard and the reason for said trip which was to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One, President Trump tweeted over the weekend and into Monday, that his trip was productive, beautiful, and thanked those that served and died during World War One. explains that World War One spanned four years, between 1914 and 1918. According to their stats, it’s estimated that 10 million military personal died while 7 million civilians perished more than 21 million wounded with about 7 million missing or imprisoned.  

For what it’s worth opinion: We do not spend money to defend other countries, we spend money on our military bases overseas in order to be ready for action, to hopefully prevent more world wars, in order to provide for our own needs and interests. 

@ 1:00 p.m. eastern President Trump tweeted a quote from Charlie Gasparino, and expressed hope that Saudi Arabia and OPEC would not cut oil production. 

President Trump also tweeted two more times about the midterm Election. Those tweets will appear in a different article.
