Kanye West and John Legend aren’t Friends Anymore Because of Donald Trump

The beautiful friendship between John Legend and Kanye West has come to an end.

While Legend insists it has nothing to do with the singer’s support of Trump, it is clear that this did have a huge impact on ending their close friendship.

The artists who collaborated on many hits, and used to be great friends, have drifted apart during President Trump’s time in office.
Things started going wrong when West publicized their private messages over his support of Trump.

John thinks that West ‘betrayed’ him and his own fans by endorsing Trump and ‘destroyed’ his legacy.

However, Kanye and Trump’s friendship goes back way to before he entered the White House.

Trump’s daughter Ivanka was the one who sparked this bond after she attended one of West’s concerts in 2009.

They got on well, so they kept in touch after that.

Kanye gave a shout out to Donald in his song So Appalled, with the lyrics: “Balding Donald Trump taking dollars from y’all”
Ivanka was very much pleased after that.

Trump didn’t attend Kanye’s wedding to Kim Kardashian in 2014, and nobody knows if he was invited.

“I certainly wish them the best of luck. I know them well, and they’re both very nice people,” Trump said.

Even though he did not vote, Kanye said if he had, he would have voted for the Republican candidate.

“[Voting for Trump] don’t mean that I don’t think that black lives matter; that don’t mean I don’t believe in women’s rights; that don’t mean that I don’t believe in gay marriage, that don’t mean I don’t believe in these things because that was the guy I would’ve voted for,” yelled West.

“If I would’ve voted, I would’ve voted for Trump.”

10 Reasons why Donald Trump Should Lose the Elections in November

Elections are approaching in the United States, and incumbent President Donald Trump will have to roll up his sleeves if he wants to win because his country is in chaos.

Although it seemed that his re-election was practically inevitable, the events that marked the past and the beginning of this year show that his chair in the White House shook dangerously.

What are the problems that Trump has faced?

1. Covid-19

In the first place – the coronavirus. Since the coronavirus pandemic outbreak, America has recorded a record of 1,816,897 cases of infection, 105,557 deaths, and 535,238 recovers, according to Worldofmeters.com. In all three categories, the United States is on the first place of this blacklist and makes about a fifth of the total 6,172,302 cases of infection globally, while the share of deaths is about a third.

2. WHO

He then announced on April 15 that he was suspending WHO funding. He accused the world organization of promoting “Chinese disinformation.” He assessed that this led to a greater spread of the “Chinese virus” epidemic, as Trump calls it than would otherwise have happened.

At the press conference, Trump said that the United States will sever relations with the WHO and that the funds intended for that organization will be redirected to others.

The pandemic, however, did not only affect the trade war. Unemployment has been recorded in the United States, which has not been remembered since the Great Depression. In April, more than 20 million Americans lost their jobs, and the unemployment rate was more than three times higher since the coronavirus pandemic shook the global economy.

3. CHINA

Trade and the coronavirus are not the only fields of conflict between the US and China. The second hotspot is the South China Sea. China has excellent territorial pretensions and the United States now and then lets a warship to cruise the disputed waters, invoking the principle of freedom of navigation. Such “provocations” are frequent on both sides, and it is not expected that these conflicts will subside soon.

As for Taiwan, the situation changed significantly in June last year, when the United States made it clear that Taiwan was an independent state. Then, the Chinese Minister of Defense, Wei Feng, said that the Chinese army would react if someone dared to separate Taiwan from China.

4. OPEN SKY

Trump, who considers himself a “great negotiator,” has so far withdrawn his country from so many agreements that it seems that the United States will remain an isolated island in the ocean of the international community.

He announced on May 21 that the United States would withdraw from the international Open Skies agreement in half a year, allowing unarmed, reconnaissance flights over the signatory countries. This time, Trump shifted the blame for that to Russia, stating that it is violating the agreement and that the recordings made during the flights can be obtained faster and cheaper from American or commercial satellites.

5. CLIMATE AGREEMENT

In June 2017, Trump announced that his country was withdrawing from the Paris Agreement on reducing greenhouse gases, shifting the blame to Russia again. He said that Russia did not respect the agreement and that the United States would withdraw from it immediately.

The United States thus began the process of withdrawing from the climate agreement in November last year, of which it formally informed the UN – the withdrawal will take effect in a year.

6. AGREEMENT WITH IRAN

In early May 2018, Trump announced that the United States would withdraw from Iran’s nuclear agreement, signed during the time of his predecessor, Barack Obama. He also announced that he would impose economic sanctions on Iran, which were lifted in 2015 after the signing of the “rotten” agreement, as he called it. A year later, Iran also announced a “partial withdrawal.”

7. AGREEMENT INF

The United States announced the decision to withdraw from the Agreement on Medium-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) on February 1 last year, leaving Russia a deadline to correct the violation of the agreement or the withdrawal will be permanent, as Trump stated.

This agreement is especially important because it represents the cornerstone of international security since the United States and the Soviet Union signed it in 1987. It bans the development and use of ground-based nuclear weapons with a range of between 500 and 5,000 kilometers.

8. NATO

Trump also has a problem with the military alliance. His administration decided in November last year to reduce the financing of the NATO budget from 22 to 16 percent of the total amount. The losses will have to be compensated by Europe and Canada.

Trump has repeatedly insisted and criticized individual members – like Germany – to increase their contributions to two percent of GDP. Germany has agreed to increase its spending, but in 2031, and currently, only six countries in the NATO coffers allocate two percent of GDP – Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Greece, Poland, and the United Kingdom.

9. G7

Today, the American president postponed the G7 summit, which was supposed to be held in June, at least until September. He said that he wanted to invite Russia, Australia, India, and South Korea to that gathering. He believed that the group of the most industrially developed countries no longer represented what was happening in the world.

10. PROTESTS IN THE USA

A new problem faced by the Trump administration on the eve of the election is fierce, violent protests across the United States over the death of African-American George Floyd during a police arrest. Protests spread to several cities, from New York to Los Angeles, and curfews were introduced in 25 places in 16 states.

Trump and his Democratic rival in the presidential election, Joseph Biden, also spoke with Floyd’s family. Although Trump did not reveal details, the brother of the deceased Philonis Floyd said that their conversation was “speedy”.

– He didn’t even give me a chance to speak. It was difficult, “said Philonis, adding that he then turned to Biden, asking him to bring justice in the event of his brother’s death.

Trump Kids Net Worth 2020

Nobody expected Donald Trump to beat Hillary Clinton in the election race three years ago. And despite the two of them had debates, which were honestly, quite ridiculous, they didn’t have much love for each other. However, Hillary did have something nice to say about his opponent – that he had wonderful children.

And while Donald Trump is being criticized on an everyday basis for being a toxic political figure, his kids managed to avoid the scorn of the masses. Nobody is talking poorly of Trump’s children, which is a good thing. But you must be wondering about their net worth and how much it belongs to them out of the massive Trump empire.

The Trump Kids

Considering that Donald Trump is a father figure, these kids are quite rich. But they do not have an equal amount of money. Between them, they are worth almost $1 billion. We will discuss each child individually but you should know there are five of them – Ivanka (married to Jared Kushner), Donald Jr,Eric, Barron and Tiffany.

One thing is for sure – these kids will not miss anything during their lifetime. Read on to learn about each one of Trump’s children, their net worth and what they do for a living.

Ivanka Trump – $740 million

Ivanka works as an entrepreneur as well as White House special helper. She and her husband Jared Kushner have lived a fantastic life so far and between them, the net worth is incredible $740 million. The two of them have a bunch of privately-owned businesses together and they are both working in the White House.

Some Americans are bothered with the fact that Ivanka didn’t step aside from her private doings for the time she is spending in the White House. But truth be told, she is not the president.

Donald Trump Jr. – $200 million

Ever since his father assumed office, Donald Trump Jr. has been in the most trouble. However, that is not quite important here as we are discussing his net worth. As a Vice President at the Trump Organization, Donald Jr. has an estimated net worth of $200 million.

He is currently in charge of the family business, together with his brother Eric and e oversees the company’s properties. That earns him a fat paycheck each month.

Eric Trump – $150 million to $300 million

Donald Jr. Is not the only Vice President at the Trump Organization – Eric is the one too! As we have already mentioned, the brothers are in charge now and just like Donald Jr. Erik himself is quite rich. His estimated net worth goes all the way up to $300 million.

Barron – N/A

Barron is Trump’s youngest child and he is currently 11. His personal net worth is impossible to calculate since he doesn’t have any role in business yet. Currently, Barron is in school, but he will start walking the paved road to follow his brothers and sisters.

Tiffany Trump – $600,000

Tiffany is older than Barron as she is currently a student. Out of all Trump kids, she is perhaps the one whose exposure in the media is quite small. She graduated from college and continued her studies at law school. Even though she is still working her way to the real world, already her net worth can be estimated at approximately $600,000.

As you can see all of the Trump kids are quite successful at what they do. They earn a lot, which is not surprising considering that they are running a family business which Donald Trump took to a whole new level before he became President.

Trump: Obama was grossly incompetent

Trump later thanked Obama and Biden on Twitter, where he wrote that their actions just helped his campaign.

 

Donald Trump, the President of the United States of America, stated that his predecessor Barack Obama was very incompetent. He said that as a response to Obama’s indirect criticism, that he does not know how to manage the country during a crisis.

On Saturday, Obama said that this pandemic, more than anything else, showed how many in public office don’t know what they are doing. And he added that some of them even don’t pretend to know.

 

After Obama’s speech, which Trump didn’t see, he only said that Obama was an incompetent president.

 

But Obama never directly mentioned Trump in his speech, but the current president is still trying to prove himself better than the previous president Obama.

Source:bostonglobe.com

 

Trump attacks Obama a lot, just like he attacked him and Joe Biden last week.

 

President Trump claimed that Obama and Biden knew that the FBI was investigating Michael Flynn, a former National Security Advisor. The latter later admitted in 2017 that he lied to the FBI about talks with the Russian ambassador to the United States.

 

Recently, the state’s attorney, William Barr, dismissed the case against Flynn, but the federal judge to whom the case was assigned could pronounce a verdict.

 

Trump accuses the previous administration of spying on Flynn, a member of his election committee, of compromising his campaign, which Trump called “Obamagate,” alluding to the Watergate affair, when the seat of the Democratic Party was eavesdropped on during the term of Republican President Richard Nixon.

 

He called the investigation against Flynn “the biggest political deception in history”, in an interview with Fox News.

 

“It’s all Obama to you. It’s all Biden. These people are corrupt. The whole thing is corrupt, and we caught them,” Trump said.

Trump later thanked Obama and Biden on Twitter and wrote that their actions were helping his campaign. He also said that they are the reason why he is in the White House.

 

Trump has also repeatedly pointed out that Obama is partly responsible for the crisis caused by the coronavirus, due to the inadequate response to the swine flu epidemic.

Beauty More Important Than Health to Trump

President Trump is worried that wearing a mask in public could jeopardize his chances of reelection.

He was never seen with one. On Tuesday, he visited the Honeywell factory in Arizona, which manufactures N95 masks, but didn’t wear one, despite the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations. According to some sources, he repeatedly “suggested they were impractical, pointless and beneath the dignity of the leader of the free world.” He is worried that a picture of himself wearing a mask could be used in attack ads against him.

This behavior drew a lot of criticism. “At the very least, it confuses people,” said Dr. K. “Vish” Viswanath, a professor of health communication at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. “At the very worst, it might even cause them to question if these rules apply to them or if the message is really that critical.”

This is not the first time Trump failed to adhere to CDC’s guidance on coronavirus prevention. He also refuses to stop shaking hands, as he believes that a politician has to shake hands with people.

Is Trump Trying to Sell the Moon?

The US executive order to mine the Moon proves that the collective good seems to be less important than neoliberal ideas of “value”.

According to David Bollier “the real estate developer who improbably became US President legally declared that he sees the Moon in far less elevated terms”, reports Al Jazeera.

President Trump signed the executive order which makes the private commercial uses of the Moon, Mars and meteors authorized. This means that Off-Earth bodies are now starting to be observed as a means to gain profit.

The so-called space business was the topic of the US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross’ request to the US government.  He called the government to support this kind of business, and to reduce regulations and coordinating government aid, especially due to the competitive threats by China and Russia. He also emphasized the idea of the space tourism and using ice on the Moon’s dark side for the creation of hydrogen and oxygen. The latter two could be then used for rockets for Mars, according to Ross. On the top of that, he has the idea of “turning the Moon into a kind of gas station for outer space.”

Property rights’ for Americans on the Moon, by 2020 as well as the large-scale economic development of space are being further explored by Trump’s administration.

Ross is enlightened by the whole idea, so he compared it to A Space Odyssey, a film from 2001. Further, he has no doubt that it will happen. “IT is coming closer to reality sooner than you may have ever thought possible”, stated Ross.

The question which arises is: Who really owns the Moon?

Things like the space, oceans, and atmosphere are usually referred to as global commons by politicians and economists. It implies that these notions in fact belong to everybody and that they should be used for the collective good. The fact many nations have signed series of treaties in order to keep the space in the zone of the collective and global, proves that it does belong to all of us.

In 1959, seven states agreed that Antarctica should be non-militarized by signing a treaty in order to establish a scientific research commons there.

In 1967, USA together with more than 100 states, signed the Outer Space Treaty, which guarantees that the research done in space will be for the benefit of the humankind.

A Moon Agreement from 1979 is considered to be the international law. The US did not sign it, but it is still considered to be valuable. According to this agreement the Moon is not a private property, which means that it cannot be colonized, owned or militarized.

It seems that it is hard to get rid of the imperialism, though. Trump’s executive order proves that the states do not observe things as the collective good, but rather as the free resources in order to gain profit.

Donald Trump Wishes His Wife Melania a Happy Birthday

The President of the United States, Donald Trump, on his Twitter account, posted a happy birthday wish to his wife, and the First Lady, Melania. Since the US is in lockdown, the celebration is going to celebrate quietly. This was an official statement of Stephanie Grisham. At the same time, best wishes to the first lady were sent by her daughter-in-law and the President’s daughter, Ivanka. On her post, we could see an image of Melania and her husband, Donald Trump.

Another cousin, Lara Trump, who is a wife on Trump’s son Eric, gave her best wishes to the birthday girl. Moreover, a lot of fans of the first lady were ecstatic. One of the most prominent ones was the post of Ronna McDaniel, who is a GOP Chairwoman. She thanked Melania for serving her country as its first lady. A similar tweet was posted by an ambassador of the UK, who, together with his wife congratulated his birthday on the first day.

Since the coronavirus pandemic started, Melania Trump wasn’t in the focus of the public. Pretty much, for a month or month on a half, she remained under the radar. In the last week, she appeared when she and the president appeared on the celebration of the Earth’s day. Since she is located at home during the lockdown, she was active on social media, where she posted retweeted all tips on the prevention of coronavirus.

It looks like she is on some kind of a break during the week of her birthday since she posted only a handful of posts. According to Stephanie Grisham, the celebration will occur on Sunday and it will have a few guests because of the current lockdown. For her previous birthday, the first lady hosted a dinner with the prime minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe, and his wife.

Two years ago, on her birthday she put her duties ahead of her private life when she appeared on political events that day. Before she became the first lady, her birthdays were glitzier let’s say. For example, back in 2016, she appeared at the Time 100 Gala.
