President Trump is reportedly "furious" with White House chief of staff John Kelly after Kelly told a group of Democratic lawmakers that some of Trump's campaign promises on immigration were "uninformed." The president thought Kelly's comments made him look like he was giving in to the demands of Democrats, The Washington Post reported Thursday. He also believed the comments made him appear as though he was a child, sources told the Post.
One year into Donald Trump's presidency, the image of U.S. leadership is weaker worldwide than it was under his two predecessors. Median approval of U.S. leadership across 134 countries and areas stands at a new low of 30%, according to a new Gallup report. The most recent approval rating, based on Gallup World Poll surveys conducted between March and November last year, is down 18 percentage points from the 48% approval rating in the last year of President Barack Obama's administration, and is four points lower than the previous low of 34% in the last year of President George W. Bush's administration.
Following the release of Donald Trump's first physical exam, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has offered to donate $100,000 to a charity of the president's choice if he weighs himself on an "accurate scale." Last night, Gunn tweeted a side-by-side photo of Trump and Albert Pujols, a Major League Basketball player, and said the medical exam results claim they are around the same height and weight. In the comparison shots, the two greatly differed in body size which suggests Gunn was casting doubt on the validity of Trump's physical report. "Trump's medical exam says he's 6'3" and 239 pounds. Albert Pujols is 6'3" and 240 pounds. If the dementia tests are equally accurate, we are doomed," he wrote. In another tweet 10 minutes later, Gunn added: "I will give 100 thousand dollars to Trump's favorite charity if he will step on an accurate scale with an impartial medical professional, okayed by both of us. For real." read more
In addition to claiming that sex with President Donald Trump was "textbook generic," porn star Stormy Daniels is also claiming that the president once compared her favorably with his own daughter, Ivanka Trump. The Daily Beast has seen a preview of a massive 5,000-word interview that Daniels conducted with InTouch Magazine in which Daniels reveals details of the affair she had with Trump back in 2006, just months after wife Melania Trump had given birth to the couple's son, Barron. "We had really good banter," Daniels says at one point in the interview. "He told me once that I was someone to be reckoned with, beautiful, smart, just like his daughter." Upon reading this, many Twitter users recoiled at Trump allegedly comparing his own daughter to a porn star with whom he was cheating on his wife.
Let's go to the tape. Again and again. President Donald Trump on Sunday misquoted himself in a tweet complaining about how he had supposedly been misquoted in a scrutinized Wall Street Journal interview. The Journal soon released audio of the interview to prove the president said what it reported, and the White House followed up minutes later with a seemingly identical recording trying to prove the Journal wrong. "The Wall Street Journal stated falsely that I said to them 'I have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un' (of N. Korea). Obviously I didn't say that. I said 'I'd have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un,' a big difference. Fortunately we now record conversations with reporters ... ... and they knew exactly what I said and meant. They just wanted a story. FAKE NEWS!" he wrote over two tweets. Within minutes, the Journal released audio from the interview that seemed to clearly show Trump's comment had been reported right the first time.
