RE: President Trump
The climate pact is an important part of global value. Go against it, does not seem a good idea, especially due to $, and withdrawal from a commitment. A sad outcome indeed.

World leaders vow to defend climate pact after Trump pullout
[PARIS] World leaders reacted with anger and defiance after President Donald Trump on Thursday announced the United States, the world's second biggest carbon emitter, was quitting the 2015 Paris climate agreement.With France's Emmanuel Macron taking the lead, they lashed Mr Trump's decision as misguided and vowed to defend an accord they portrayed as crucial for the planet's future.In an exceptional step, continental Europe's three biggest economies - Germany, France and Italy - issued a joint statement to criticise Trump's move and slap away his offer of renegotiating the deal."We note the United States' decision with regret," they said, describing the carbon-curbing accord as "a vital tool for our planet, our societies and our economies." "We are firmly convinced that the agreement cannot be renegotiated," they added, referring to Mr Trump's announcement that Washington was open to negotiating a new agreement.

Paris withdrawal sets business world at odds with Trump
02 Jun 2017 07:21
[WASHINGTON] Captains of industry, corporations and business groups distanced themselves from the White House on Thursday, as many expressed frustration with President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord.

The reactions from across the business world - including oil producers, the tech sector and finance - stood apart from Trump's portrayal of the decision as a needed corrective to rules that could stymie commerce.

RE: President Trump
I cannot think of a western leader as bad as he. Closes to mind is Hitler but I think he is worse. For Hitler at least his damage is limited to Europe whereas for this idiot he wants to screw up the whole world. If the climate is screwed how he can protect America?? Does climate recognise boundaries?

It is ignoring the rest, while pursuing his own interest.

As a world citizen, we need to give Britain a hand now to calm down, rather to "leverage" on the attacks, IMHO.

Outrage as Trump targets London mayor over attacks
05 Jun 2017 06:36
[WASHINGTON] Donald Trump lashed out Sunday at London's mayor Sadiq Khan, accusing him of downplaying the threat of terrorism a day after knife-wielding men mowed down and stabbed revelers in the British capital.

London's mayor swiftly shot down the US president's remarks, made in a series of overnight tweets, as critics accused Mr Trump of exploiting a terror attack for political gain - and not for the first time.

A spokesman said Mr Khan "has more important things to do than respond to Donald Trump's ill-informed tweet."

Mr Trump poured scorn on Mr Khan's attempt to reassure the public after three assailants smashed a van into pedestrians on London Bridge then attacked revelers with knives.

"At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is 'no reason to be alarmed!'" the US president said in one tweet.

Not very good when you don't have great relationships with the media. It is ironic that Trump first came into celebrity status from leveraging on the media.

He has opened out the Pandora box of "hate". The "hate" has reached a critical mass to explode. Anyway, violence should be condemned.

Trump makes call for unity after lawmaker shot
15 Jun 2017 06:43
[Washington] A grave Donald Trump called on Americans to unify after the shooting of a Republican lawmaker and three other people Wednesday at a baseball field, striking a notably less partisan tone in response to his first major domestic crisis.

From the Diplomatic Room of the White House, the US president turned statesman as he praised first responders and led prayers for wounded Congressman Steve Scalise.

Ditching derogatory rhetoric about the Washington "swamp", Mr Trump rallied in support of his fellow politicians and called on the country to pull together.

Trump Threatens Government Shutdown Over Border Wall Funding

President Donald Trump threatened Tuesday to bring the U.S. government to the brink of a shutdown if needed to pressure Congress into funding the border wall that was a centerpiece of his 2016 campaign.

Delivering a warning to Democratic lawmakers who have objected to his plans to construct a wall along the U.S.-Mexico frontier, Trump called them “obstructionists” and said that it was time for the U.S. to crack down on illegal immigration.

"If we have to close down our government, we’re building that wall,” Trump told thousands of supporters gathered in Phoenix for a campaign-style rally. “One way or the other, we’re going to get that wall.”

U.S. President Donald Trump offered cryptic remarks Thursday night while posing for photos with military leaders, saying the gathering might represent “the calm before the storm.”

He made the comments among senior military leaders and their spouses in the White House State Dining Room ahead of a dinner expected to include the discussion of a range of national security issues.

“You guys know what this represents?” Trump asked assembled members of the media. “Maybe it’s the calm before the storm.”
