It’s Monday.

President Trump has finished his state visit to Japan where he met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

President and First Lady Melania Trump were the first state guests of the new Reiwa Era, the Japan Times reported on Monday, that the Japanese government chose the Trumps to become the first state guests of Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako.

Emperor Naruhtio ascended the throne on May 1st, after the abdication of Emperor Akihito, the first Japanese monarch to step down in 202 years.

During his trip abroad President Trump has tweeted 22 times, and re-tweeted 15 times.

CNN live updates reported that President Trump landed on Saturday, at 5 p.m., local time, after a roughly 14 hours flight from Washington, D.C..

The Washington Post reported Friday, that U.S. District Judge Haywood Gilliam Jr., from California blocked part of “President Trump’s plan to build a wall along the southern border with money Congress never appropriated for that purpose.”

The 56 page ruling explains that the governments position, “that when Congress declines the Executive’s request to appropriate funds, the Executive nonetheless may simply find a way to spend those funds “without Congress” does not square with fundamental separation of powers principles dating back to the earliest days of our Republic.”

Gilliam concludes that “all persons acting under their direction, are enjoined from taking any action to construct a border barrier in the areas Defendants have identified as Yuma Sector Project 1 and El Paso Sector Project 1 using funds reprogrammed by DoD under Section 8005 of the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2019.”

Another hearing is scheduled for June 5th.

Judge Gilliam was nominated by former President Obama, in September of 2014, and confirmed by the Republican held majority in December of 2014.

The President deleted and replaced the tweet after he misspelled former Vice President Joe Biden’s name.

CNN reported that according to North Korean state media North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, called Biden a “fool of low IQ.”

According to the article, “North Korea’s criticism of Biden comes in response to comments made by the former vice president in which he referred to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a “dictator” and a “tyrant” during a campaign rally in Philadelphia on Saturday.”

The comments CNN quotes as stating, “What he uttered is just sophism of an imbecile bereft of elementary quality as a human being, let alone a politician.”

As the News Blender reported on Friday, President Trump has granted Attorney General William Barr, the ability to declassify material related to the origins of the Russian investigation.

NBC News reported on Monday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu faces the “possibility of having to fight a second election this year, as he struggles to form a coalition government. With a looming deadline, Israel’s newly elected parliament began drafting a bill on Monday to dissolve itself.”

The article goes on to explain that Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, has “insisted on passing a new law mandating that young ultra-Orthodox men be drafted into the military, like most other Jewish males,” they add, “Netanyahu’s ultra-Orthodox allies demand that the exemptions remain in place.”

If Netanyahu loses the five seats of Lieberman’s Yisrael Beiteinu party, he will be unable to muster a majority.
