The president has unexpectedly turned on Fox, his favorite broadcaster, for the decision to remove Mrs. Piro after she suggested that Congressman Ilhan Omar wears a hijab implying her faith above her country, pushing the Mr. Trump to say to the network "stay strong and forcefully reject" against "the radical left-wing Democrats" and the "Means of false news".
In addition to cheering for St. Patrick's Day and emphasizing the need for his US-Mexican border wall to curb illegal immigration, Mr. Trump approved a view of the Steele Dossier, compiled by a British secret service agent, intended to push the America to take a hard line. Russia attacked Senator McCain, who died on August 25, 2018, to have him delivered to the FBI.

Fallout continues after Donald Trump's longtime advisor, Kellyanne Conway, urges the public on Fox News to read the entire manifesto spread by the suspected terrorist behind the attacks on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.
Susan Hennessey, executive director of Lawfare, said on Twitter: "While the rest of the national safety and security community is working to limit the distribution of this manifesto, the White House is not concerned about the risks of spreading an & # 39; virulent ideology, because all that really matters is whether Trump is blamed ".

The president is now attacking the inquiry of Special Adviser Robert Mueller into the interference of the Russian elections, openly reflecting if "we will soon find out" if the probe is really a "witch hunt" as he has repeatedly stated.
Donald Trump responded to a new survey on the Special Advisers Survey, writing, "Wow! A Suffolk / USA Today survey, just released, states that" 50% of Americans ACCEPT that Robert's survey Mueller is a witch hunt ".
The erosion of trust for the special consultant comes as the president has spent the last two years attacking the probe on Twitter and numerous media appearances.

The White House's chief adviser, Kellyanne Conway, asked Fox News to urge the public to "read the entire manifesto" an apparent white supremacist released before presumably killing at least 50 people during a terrorist attack on two mosques in Christchurch , New Zeland.
The request for viewers to see the complete manifesto is already receiving criticism online.

Here is a quick check of the facts from AP on the claims of Donald Trump that white nationalism is not a growing threat in the United States:
According to data released this month by the Anti-Defamation League of New York, for example, the propaganda efforts of white supremacy have almost tripled since 2017. Propaganda reports – which may include flyers, stickers, banners and posters that promote the hateful ideology – has risen 182 percent to 1,187 cases. This is good compared to the 421 reported in 2017.
The number of racial demonstrations and demonstrations also increased last year, according to the group. At least 91 gatherings of white supremacists or other public events assisted by white supremacists were held in 2018, compared with 76 in the previous year.
The anti-defamation League in January stated that domestic extremists killed at least 50 people in the United States in 2018, against 37 in 2017, and noted that "white supremacists were responsible for the vast majority of murders, as in general" .

Donald Trump angrily complained that he was accused of the extreme right-wing terrorist attack in Christchurch, which killed 50 people.
"The Fake News Media is working overtime to blame me for the horrible attack in New Zealand. They will have to work very hard to prove it. So ridiculous!" He tweeted Mr. Trump.
The American president was criticized following the shooting at two mosques in New Zealand last week, after initially tweeting a link to Breitbart, an extreme-right site with a history of anti-Muslim rhetoric, to direct followers to his accident coverage.

It was a banner weekend for the president's Twitter account.
Donald Trump has retweeted an account with a QAnon profile picture in recent days, alluding to the right-wing online conspiracy theoretical group, as well as other right-wing influencers who spit out false news and misleading reports.
Reportedly, the president's retweets are rejoicing online for members of those communities.

While Donald Trump launches a tug on Twitter against Joe Biden and others, one of his new 2020 opponents has broken massive fundraising records.
Beto O & # 39; Rourke set a new fundraising record for the Democrats hoping to challenge Donald Trump in the 2020 elections, raising $ 6.1 million (£ 4.6 million) in just 24 hours.
The Texas Democrat beat Bernie Sanders, the Vermont senator also vying for the White House, who had previously set the record with his loot of 5.9 million pounds (4.5 million pounds) after he launched his campaign in February.

Donald Trump attacked Joe Biden on Twitter, claiming he "tied up over the weekend" after the vice president teased a presidential race during an important speech.
"He was unable to properly deliver a very simple line on his decision to run for president," he said. "You get used to it, another low IQ. Individual!"

Donald Trump is now calling the press after an apparent white nationalist from Australia targeted two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand in a terrorist attack last week that killed at least 50 people and quoted the president as "a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose “.
The president wrote on Twitter, "The Fake News Media is working overtime to blame me for the horrible attack in New Zealand."
"They will have to work very hard to prove it," he added. "So ridiculous!"

Damn. George Conway, husband of Kellyanne, a White House adviser, continues to become a thief and risks provoking his wife's fury by attacking his boss and questioning his sanity.
This thread, which chirps the definitions of the narcissistic personality disorder, can only be addressed to a man.
The manual describes the condition as a cause of "a pervasive model of grandeur (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration and lack of empathy".

But the muddy goes in both directions.
Since announcing his candidacy for 2020, the opponents of Beto O & # 39; Rourke have been working overtime to clean up the new golden boy of the Democrats.
The Republicans used St. Patrick's Day to mock his arrest for driving under the influence more than 20 years ago – an incredibly callous tweet from the official account of the party.
Many also jumped on a Reuters report over the weekend saying that the former punk rocker, 46, wrote quite wild poems in his youth and was part of the first Cult of the Dead Cow hacktivist group under the pseudonym "Psychedelic Warlord ".
Whatever you do with it, it has clearly captured the imagination of the voters:

The Democrats are currently lining up in disagreement with former Vice President Joe Biden that his successor, Mike Pence, is "a good boy".
Pete Buttigieg's candidate, Indo-Indian candidate and President Pence's presidential candidate as "the porn star presidency cheerleader" has yet to be improved despite the best efforts of Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris et al.
His answer toadying to the president beyond the veto – "I don't know if I've ever been more proud to be standing next to your desk than it is today" – certainly deserves to be mocked.
