Donald Trump Met Russian Ambassador During The Campaign, Despite Repeated Denials

Russian Ambassador KislyakPresident Donald Trump and his advisers have, on dozens of occasions, denied Trump’s campaign aides and other associates had any contact with Russian officials.

Those denials were not true. At least five members of his team met with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak before Trump officially took office.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders tried to mitigate the spiraling situation last week, telling reporters the main issue was that Trump himself had never met with any Russian government officials during the campaign.


Trump hits Obama again, this time with false claims about Gitmo detainees

FOX and Friends lies about GitmoPresident Trump used Twitter on Tuesday to again bash predecessor Barack Obama — this time in a false claim about Guantanamo Bay prisoner releases — and to promote the release of the new House health care bill.

Trump said that "122 vicious prisoners, released by the Obama Administration from Gitmo, have returned to the battlefield. Just another terrible decision!" However, more more than 90% of those detainees were released during the George W. Bush administration, not that of Obama.


UN says Trump's revised travel ban will worsen plight of refugees

Trump revised plan will worsen ploght of refugeesDonald Trump’s revised travel ban will increase the woes of the world’s refugees, the United Nations has said, as some of the Muslim-majority countries affected by the ban expressed their disappointment, insisting they had fully cooperated with US anti-terrorist efforts.

The executive order blocks entry to the US for citizens from six of the seven countries named in Trump’s original order – Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, Syria and Libya – for a period of 90 days and suspends the US refugee programme for 120 days.


Park service inauguration photos show Obama's was bigger

Obama inauguration crowd larger than TrumpThe National Park Service released dozens of photos Monday from President Trump's inauguration that appear to refute the president's claim that the "dishonest media" downplayed the inaugural crowd size, which he estimated at 1.5 million people.

The photos were released in response to a Freedom of Information Act request from various news media organizations. The park service also released photos from former president Barack Obama's two inaugurations.


Donald Trump’s Worst Deal

Baku Tower - Ivanka

The President helped build a hotel in Azerbaijan that appears to be a corrupt operation engineered by oligarchs tied to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.

Heydar Aliyev Prospekti, a broad avenue in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, connects the airport to the city. The road is meant to highlight Baku’s recent modernization, and it is lined with sleek new buildings. The Heydar Aliyev Center, an undulating wave of concrete and glass, was designed by Zaha Hadid.

The state oil company is housed in a twisting glass tower, and the headquarters of the state water company looks like a giant water droplet. “It’s like Potemkin,” my translator told me. “It’s only the buildings right next to the road.” Behind the gleaming structures stand decaying Soviet-era apartment blocks, with clothes hanging out of windows and wallboards exposed by fallen brickwork.


Ben Carson: ‘Slave Ships’ Held ‘Immigrants’

Ben CarsonWhile speaking with his employees on Monday, Ben Carson made a baffling claim that seemingly likened slaves to immigrants.

Calling the United States a “land of dreams and opportunity,” the newly confirmed housing and urban development secretary said, “There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less.”

TVNL Comment:  This moron does not know the difference between those who 'came here' and those who were chained and dragged here against there will and sold at slave markets.  There was no United States when slavery began, but slavery was legal here until the end of the Civil War. No one in the hold of a slave ship ever dreamed of the glorious life his or her children would have in the hands of their new masters.


White House does not know if alleged surveillance of Trump was by wiretap

Maybe not via wiretap....geezThe White House has admitted that Donald Trump does not know what type of surveillance he is alleging he was put under by Barack Obama, despite a tweet on Saturday explicitly saying his phone was tapped.

Sean Spicer, the president’s press secretary, argued that there is “substantial reporting” to show the issue merits congressional investigation, but did not identify Trump’s sources.
