Trump tells an absurdly brazen lie while he rants about tariffs at White House event


President Donald Trump repeatedly claimed the federal government is taking in “tens of billions of dollars” in tariffs leveled on foreign goods, suggesting those taxes are being paid by foreign nations, when in reality they are being paid for by U.S. consumers.

The President also claimed that no president before him has ever leveled tariffs on foreign goods, which is tremendously false. “We’ve never taken in ten cents [in tariffs] until I got elected,” Trump told reporters Monday from the Oval Office. That’s a lie.

“I love the position we’re in,” Trump added, as the markets tumbled on news China may retaliate in Trump’s tariff war. The DOW has been down about 600 points much of the day, following rough days for markets Thursday and Friday last week.

CNN’s Brooke Baldwin immediately fact-checks Trump’s ‘continuously wrong’ claim that tariffs helped economic growth


On Monday, CNN host Brooke Baldwin fact checked President Donald Trump’s claim that the strong GDP growth in the United States was the result of tariffs on China.

“The president is continuously wrong on the point that he keeps making that the strong GDP is a direct result of the tariffs on China,” she said.

“Let me cite a chief economist Mark Zandi in his own words. ‘No, the tariffs had nothing to do with Q 1 GDP. It was largely an impact in the surge of inventory as businesses stockpiled for fear of a trade war,” she said. “Looking at the markets, really down still today as a result of China’s retaliation.”

The Dow dropped by nearly 700 points after China said it will raise tariffs.

“This is a clear escalation of trade tensions in our view, and against our baseline that cool heads would prevail and the worst would be avoided,” Bank of America strategist Athanasios Vamvakidis said, according to CNN.

Robert Reich: Congress has a duty to impeach Trump for ‘usurping the powers of the Congress’


In the past, economist Robert Reich has expressed deep skepticism when it comes to impeaching President Donald Trump. Reich, in an August 2018 article, asserted that Democrats should “annul” his presidency rather than pursuing impeachment — stressing that Republicans would probably continue to control the Senate after the midterms and that not one president in U.S. history has actually been removed from office via the impeachment process or convicted in a Senate trial. But Reich, in a May 13 op-ed for Newsweek, argues that Trump has crossed the line so badly in recent weeks that pursuing impeachment is now “the right thing to do.”

The deepest submarine dive in human history made a depressing discovery


four new species of crustaceans. Samples of rock from the seafloor. Plastic pollution.

That’s what American explorer Victor Vescovo found when he descended seven miles underwater to the Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean—the deepest dive in human history. The plastic Vescovo found at the bottom of the trench is a grim reminder that human refuse is everywhere on the planet.

Horrifying. I’m not saying Trump is becoming Hitler, so don’t bother tweeting the distinctions. But the physical and behavioral resemblances aren’t altogether irrelevant. No prior president even suggests the comparison.

Adam Schiff @RepAdamSchiff 8h

Read this article about Hungary under Viktor Orban, and then ask why the leader of the free world would fête this aspiring dictator at the White House.

Rather than reward Orban for crushing Hungary's democracy, we should be pressing him to reject the path to autocracy


The Atlantic @TheAtlantic

TThe Hungarian autocrat Viktor Orbán has systematically undermined the institutions that might challenge his authority. One, however, has stood defiant: a university founded by George Soros.

https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/13/politics/farmers-china-tariffs-trump/index.html

American farmers are running out of patience with President Donald Trump's trade war with China.

Farmers have long stood behind Trump's mission to get a better trade deal with Beijing that addresses long-standing issues with what they say are unfair trading practices.

But after weeks of optimistic statements by Trump and members of his administration about how trade talks were progressing, Trump abruptly escalated tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods last week and opened the door to even more -- prompting Beijing to hit back Monday by raising the tariff rate on $60 billion of US items.

The escalated tariffs don't hit agricultural products directly, since most were already facing a 25% tariff imposed by China last year. But the news still sent commodity prices plummeting.

"The President of the United States owes farmers like myself some type of plan of action," John Wesley Boyd Jr., a soybean farmer in Baskerville, Virginia, told CNN's Brianna Keilar on Monday.

"Farmers were his base. They helped elect this president ... and now he's turning his back on America's farmers when we need him the most," he added.

This is Trump’s ‘go to phrase’ and how he uses it to avoid answering questions: CNN political editor


On Monday, CNN political editor Chris Cillizza detailed President Donald Trump’s go-to phrase that he uses to avoid answering questions directly.

Most recently Trump used the phrase in the oval office while answering questions about the United States relationship with Iran, and if the country was on the brink of war or not.

“I’m hearing little stories about Iran,” he responded. “If they do anything, they will suffer greatly. We’ll see what happens with Iran,” Trump said.

Cillizza explained that Trump is known for saying “we’ll see what happens.”

“Trump’s go-to phrase for saying absolutely nothing while simultaneously ruling absolutely nothing out,” Cillizza said.

He then listed examples of the times Trump said “we’ll see what happens” during interviews.

On North Korean missile launch: “We’ll see what happens” (May 9, 2019)

On sitting down for an interview with Mueller: “We’ll see what happens” (January 10, 2018)

On the possibility of firing Jeff Sessions as attorney general: “We’ll see what happens” (July 25, 2017)

On firing Robert Mueller: “We’ll see what happens” (April 9, 2018)

Trump has been using the phrase “we’ll see what happens” long before he became president. Cillizza went on to explain that it’s a part of Trump’s philosophy to leave situations open to multiple outcomes.

“This is who Trump has always been. And, as he’s shown many times over the past two-plus years, nothing will change him — not even being elected to the highest office in the country,” he said.

Not a single person close to Trump doesn't know he has early signs of dementia, said the former Republican congressman.

MSNBC news host Joe Scarborough said during the Thursday edition of his Morning Joe show that sources close to Trump told him the president is experiencing early signs of dementia, according to Newsweek.

Scarborough said the president's dementia is “getting worse" and not a single person who works for him doesn’t know he has early signs of the disease.

The host, who is also a former Republican congressman,

Please explain to me why we had to pay farmers who voted for trump 12 billion dollars to subsidize them for the soybeans they couldn't sell because of trump's tariffs. Elections have consequences. trump paid them to secure their votes in 2020.
