President Trump spent Tuesday defending ✋ his criticism of the California fires 🔥, cancelling out on an appearance 👀 in France due to rain and his knowledge about 16 hidden ballistic missile 🚀 bases in North Korea, which appeared an in article in the NYT.
🐦 I just approved an expedited request for a Major Disaster Declaration for the State of California. Wanted to respond quickly in order to alleviate some of the incredible suffering going on. I am with you all the way. God Bless all of the victims and families affected.
Trump declared that a major disaster exists in the State of California and ordered Federal aid to supplement State, tribal, and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by wildfires beginning on November 8, 2018, and continuing.
🐦 Emmanuel Macron suggests building its own army to protect Europe against the U.S., China and Russia. But it was Germany in World Wars One & Two - How did that work out for France? They were starting to learn German in Paris before the U.S. came along. Pay for NATO or not!
Minutes after Trump's online outburst, German Chancellor Angela Merkel backed Mr Macron, saying she too wanted a "real, true European army", which would complement, but not rival, the Northern Atlantic Alliance, Nato.
🐦 On Trade, France makes excellent wine, but so does the U.S. The problem is that France makes it very hard for the U.S. to sell its wines into France, and charges big Tariffs, whereas the U.S. makes it easy for French wines, and charges very small Tariffs. Not fair, must change!
he European Union's import tariff on U.S. wine ranges from $0.11 to $0.29 per 750mL bottle, according to the California-based Wine Institute. The U.S., meanwhile, charges, between $0.05 and $0.14. Trump has long been critical of the EU's trade policies, and views potential auto tariffs as his best leverage in getting a fair trade deal.
🐦 The problem is that Emmanuel suffers from a very low Approval Rating in France, 26%, and an unemployment rate of almost 10%. He was just trying to get onto another subject. By the way, there is no country more Nationalist than France, very proud people-and rightfully so!.........MAKE FRANCE GREAT AGAIN!
🐦 By the way, when the helicopter couldn’t fly to the first cemetery in France because of almost zero visibility, I suggested driving. Secret Service said NO, too far from airport & big Paris shutdown. Speech next day at American Cemetery in pouring rain! Little reported-Fake News!
The statement said nothing about a possible motorcade. Trump, who traveled to Paris for a series of events commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, spent Saturday afternoon out of the public eye. Tommy Vietor, a spokesman for the National Security Council for President Barack Obama, called Trump's second-guessing of the Secret Service "a lie." The Secret Service "advises on security but the President makes the final call," Vietor said on Twitter. "He chose to skip the memorial."
🐦 When will Bill Nelson concede in Florida? The characters running Broward and Palm Beach voting will not be able to “find” enough votes, too much spotlight on them now!
The president, without evidence, has repeatedly accused Democrats of "election theft" in that Senate race and has said that the election should be called in Republican Gov. Rick Scott's favor.
🐦 The story in the New York Times concerning North Korea developing missile bases is inaccurate. We fully know about the sites being discussed, nothing new - and nothing happening out of the normal. Just more Fake News. I will be the first to let you know if things go bad!
The New York Times reported Monday on satellite images revealing 16 hidden ballistic missile bases in North Korea that the newspaper wrote were "long known to American intelligence agencies but left undiscussed as President Trump claims to have neutralized the North's nuclear threat." The Times reported that Pyongyang has continued to make improvements at the 16 hidden sites even as it has offered to dismantle a ballistic missile launch site amid ongoing denuclearization talks with the U.S.
