Trump’s nationalists triumphant after Europe trip

Steve BannonPresident Donald Trump’s trip to Europe was a victory for his nationalist advisers over their so-called globalist rivals as the two camps gird for more showdowns this summer.

In Warsaw, Trump delivered a starkly nationalist speech lauding the right-wing Polish government’s defense of “civilization” from foes like refugees and European Union bureaucrats. At the G-20 summit in Germany, Trump stuck to his dissent from a global climate change consensus, befriended Russian President Vladimir Putin and weighed potential new steel tariffs that a top European Union official angrily branded “protectionist.”


A White House transcript misidentified the Chinese president as the leader of Taiwan

White House press release shows idiocyA White House transcript is mistakenly linking Chinese President Xi Jinping to the Republic of China, which is Taiwan's formal name.

The White House released the transcript of President Donald Trump's public remarks with Xi at the start of a bilateral meeting at an international summit in Germany on Saturday.

Xi is leader of the People's Republic of China and Trump has been seeking his help in addressing North Korea's nuclear ambitions.


Trump administration officials do not dispute Russia’s claim that Trump accepted Putin’s word on election meddling

Putin's version of election meddling accepted by TrumpAfter President Trump and President Putin ended their marathon discussion on Friday, it was Russia — not the United States — that provided the press an account of the meeting.

Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov told reporters Friday that Trump accepted Putin’s denial of meddling in the U.S. election.

This revelation was not exactly surprising. For months, Trump has tried to distance Russia from the election hacking, telling the American people that anyone could have been behind the theft of Democratic Party emails.


Trump Handed Putin a Stunning Victory

Trump Handed Pution a Stunning VictoryPresident Donald Trump needed to accomplish two things this week during his visits to Poland and the G-20 Summit in Hamburg. First, he needed to reassure America’s allies that he was committed to collective defense and the core set of values and principles that bind us together. Second, he needed to demonstrate that he understands that the greatest threat to that alliance, those values, and our security is the Kremlin.

Trump delivered neither of these. In very concrete terms, through speech and action, the president signaled a willingness to align the United States with Vladimir Putin’s worldview, and took steps to advance this realignment. He endorsed, nearly in its totality, the narrative the Russian leader has worked so meticulously to construct.


Ivanka Trump Sat In for Her Father at the G-20 Leaders' Table

Ivanka sits in for Donald at G-20 meetingDonald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, took his seat at a Group of 20 meeting table in Hamburg, sitting in for the president when he stepped away for one-on-one meetings with world leaders.

A photo on Twitter shows Ivanka Trump sitting at her father’s place, between Chinese President Xi Jinping and British Prime Minister Theresa May. One official who was watching the session said she has taken her father’s place at the table on at least two occasions today and did not speak.


Maybe Trump and Pence should steer clear of astronomy altogether

Pence touches "DO NOT TOUCH' hardware at NASAA week ago, in a strange White House ceremony, Donald Trump signed an executive order to bring back the National Space Council. The event was odd for a variety of reasons, including the remarks the president made to wrap up the official gathering.

“This is infinity here,” Trump said. “It could be infinity. We don’t really don’t know. But it could be. It has to be something – but it could be infinity, right?”

I honestly have no idea what the president was even trying to say.


In Front Of Peña Nieto, Trump Says He ‘Absolutely’ Wants Mexico To Fund Border Wall

Pena NietoSitting directly beside Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto ahead of their bilateral meeting at the G-20 summit on Friday, U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters he still “absolutely” wants Mexico to pay for a multi-billion dollar border wall along the countries’ shared border.

The leaders addressed a group of journalists together in Hamburg, Germany, during a press conference that morning. Trump reportedly referred to Nieto as his “friend” and said the pair was making “very good progress” on discussions of transnational issues like the NAFTA negotiations.
