It’s Monday.

It’s Day 69 of the Impeachment Inquiry.

The President has departed the U.S. to travel to London in order to meet with NATO leaders.

Ahead of his departure the President has tweeted 14 times and retweeted 2 times.

This tweet was originally sent on Sunday, but was deleted and reissued at 2:21 a.m. eastern time.

Wead’s book can be found at Amazon.com. According to the blurb, the book is “a history of the Trump White House with the President and his staff talking openly, on the record.”

From Amazon:

In Inside Trump’s White House, Doug Wead offers a sweeping, eloquent history of President Donald J. Trump’s first years in office, covering everything from election night to the news of today. The book will include never-before-reported stories and scoops, including how President Trump turned around the American economy, *how he “never complains and never explains,” and how his actions sometimes lead to misunderstandings with the media and the public. It also includes exclusive interviews with the Trump family about the Mueller report, and narrates their reactions when the report was finally released. *Contains Interviews with the President in the Oval Office, chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, Jared and Ivanka Kushner, Donald Trump, Jr., Eric and Lara Trump, and White House insiders.

*never complains, LOL, LOL, LOL….*

Wead appeared on C-SPAN on November 29th to talk about the book.

He deleted his original tweet because he failed to @ Fox News.

From the tweeted Axios article:

Data from Adobe Analytics shows Black Friday spending increased by nearly 20% over last year, rising to $7.4 billion, even as fewer retailers offered big in-store discounts. Brick-and-mortar stores saw an overall 6% decline in sales, according to preliminary data from ShopperTrak.

According to Newsweek the quote from Wallace happened during his interview with Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY).

They quote Wallace as explaining to Jeffries:

But congressman, Democrats have been making that case—you’ve been making your best case to the public for two months now,” Wallace responded. “You just finished 30 hours of televised hearings, 12 witnesses, and the public apparently isn’t buying it at this point.”
“It’s clear that there is none of the bipartisan support that Speaker Pelosi said for months was essential to impeachment,” Wallace said.

Newsweek.

The interview is 10 minutes and 37 seconds long.

The Washington Post reported that this announcement seems to be a surprise announcement at a time when it appeared that the White House was “preparing to dial back its adversarial trade approach in the lead up to next year’s election. The administration appeared close to a deal with House Democrats to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement, and tensions with China had eased in recent weeks.”

According to the article exports to the U.S. last year accounted for “roughly $2.6 billion last year — making the United States one of Brazil’s biggest markets for steel — and analysts expected the tariffs to be painful.”

CNBC News explains that Fed policymakers have been reluctant to take President Trump’s advice and lower the interest to below zero. The Fed’s next committee meeting is on Dec. 10th, and Dec. 11th.

For What It’s Worth.

As the News Blender reported in July of 2019 the leader of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro floated the idea of his son Eduardo of becoming a Brazilian ambassador while President Trump’s son, Eric would become the U.S. ambassador to Brazil. This was explained as an effort to strength U.S./Brazil ties.

CNBC News is reporting that the DOW fell 251 points as “investors digested disappointing economic data along with the latest trade news after capping a month that featured blistering gains.”

On Sunday White House Counsel Pat Cipollone issued a 5 page letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and Ranking member Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) informing the Committee that the President would not be apart of the upcoming December 4th Judiciary Committee hearing.

As a reminder:

Before departing the White House the President spoke with reporters.

During an interview with TIME the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky did once again deny that President Trump and he engaged in a quid pro quo involving political favors, however he added, “If you’re our strategic partner, then you can’t go blocking anything for us. I think that’s just about fairness. It’s not about a quid pro quo.”

Reminder as noted above the President has been invited to attend the hearing on December 4th, the White House has declined.

As if 14 tweets wasn’t enough the President from Air Force One has tweeted 4 more times and retweeted 1 time.


But remember according to Wead’s new book, the President never complains.

This post will be updated within reason.
