It’s Monday.

The President has arrived in U.K. for a three-day U.S. State visit.

Prior to his arrival he tweeted 2 times.

After his arrival he has tweeted 4 times.

1. @SadiqKhan, 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…

2. Landing now!

Sadiq Khan, the first Muslim Mayor of London, on Saturday had an op-ed published on The Guardian‘s website, in it, the Mayor explained that it was, “un-British to be rolling out the red carpet this week for a formal state visit for a president whose divisive behaviour flies in the face of the ideals America was founded upon – equality, liberty and religious freedom.”

Khan goes on to say, “Rather than bestowing Trump with a grand platform of acceptability to the world, we should be speaking out and saying that this behaviour is unacceptable – and that it poses a grave threat to the values and principles we have fought hard to defend – often together – for decades.”

Politico reports that as the President arrived in the U.K., he made mention of the feud between he and the London Mayor to Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, who was there to greet the President on the tarmac.

Hunt told channel 4 news when asked if the President insulting Khan via tweet, by calling the London Mayor a “stone cold loser, and nasty,” was acceptable, Hunt said, “Jon, it’s not my job to approve the tweets put out by the President of the United States.”

Mayor and Democrat Presidential hopeful Bill de Blasio weighed in on the feud and the comparison between he and Khan via Twitter.

3. Thank You.

The video clip shows from a far away angle the President’s arrival to the U.K. and his departure from the airport. There is no voice over or music.

4. but U.S. is taking Billions!


Tariffs are a tax on the U.S. consumer, that billion the U.S. is taking in are in fact American tax dollars.

As to the “China is subsidizing” the U.S. has been subsidizing products for decades, that includes farmers who the U.S. has bailed out at the cost of $12 billion, with another $16 billion planned since the President has increased the Chinese tariffs last month.

As a reminder.

5. The only problem is that @CNN is the primary source of news available from the U.S. After watching it for a short while, I turned it off.

6. I believe that if people stoped using or subscribing to @ATT, they would be forced to make big changes at @CNN


“Fake News?”

Some current headlines at CNN…

President Trump’s UK state visit, this is their live updates of the President’s trip abroad, such as his visit with Queen Elizabeth.

In Politics CNN is covering Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) who was confronted by an animal rights protester on Sunday. According to CNN, the man rushed the stage grabbed her mic, one of the people who rushed the stage was her husband Doug Emhoff. Harris had left the stage while the animal rights protester had started to address the crowd.

What is CNN International covering this Monday?

For What It’s Worth.

Here are screen grabs of the President’s tweets, in which he spelled Stopped wrong and also misspelled Khan’s last name. They might eventually be replaced, maybe…

Authors note: Because the President issued the tweets in a thread, if he deletes one, both will be replaced.

This post will be updated within reason.

This is an Open Thread.
