Sen. Bernie Sanders, a candidate in the Democratic primary in 2016, has returned to attack the President Trump, this time did it during the TV show “OutFront”. During the interview Sanders accused Trump of being a hypocrite because it wants out of the country 3 million of illegal immigrants, more or less the same as according to Sanders voted for Trump in November. Finally Sanders says that Trump want to exercise presidential powers with an authoritarian logic because, according to Sanders, the President totally ignore the Constitution.
President Trump, from his residence in Florida, has admitted that the calculations, made earlier by his staff during the election campaign and then his by Cabinet, about the costs of the border wall that he would like to build with Mexico have been wrong, the work should costing $ 21.6 billion against $ 12 billion, which is the amount that Trump had declared during the election campaign. The President did not give up and announces that it will treat the price, infact, seems quite sure to get a discount,lke he had do for the 90 F-35 jets fighter, Lockheed Martin in that case would make to the administration a discount of $ 600 million, which according to defense analysts is similar to that done to other countries.
The Trump administration in Washington has objected to the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres’ choice of former Palestinian prime minister Salam Fayyed as the new UN special envoy to Libya on grounds that he is Palestinian. “For too long the UN has been unfairly biased in favour of the Palestinian Authority to the detriment of our allies in Israel,” complained Nikki Haley, the new US ambassador to the UN appointed by President Donald Trump. It is not clear if the objection will scupper Fayyad’s appointment. Fayyad would be Guterres’ personal representative but his appointment as Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) requires Security Council approval. The US could veto it. A spokesman for Guterres said today that choosing Fayyad was “solely based on Mr Fayyad’s recognised personal qualities and his competence for that position”.
