Donald Trump being sworn in as 45th US President

ABC News Australia and Fairfax Media’s Sydney Morning Herald and The Age Melbourne are simply Left-wing Donald Trump attack dogs, not to be taken seriously.

The article below in ABC Australia is a good example of fake news.

The only trouble “at home” for Donald Trump are the dogs of Left-wing media baying like hyenas for Donald Trump’s blood.

Donald Trump’s demise is not going to happen, so they’d better get used to things.

ABC News Australia, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age Melbourne are running the risk of becoming so distorted they’re irrelevant, and people will continue to go on-line for the truth.

Try Fox News for accurate coverage of Donald Trump and US politics.

CNN, CBSN, New York Times and the Washington Post have all lost the plot over Donald Trump, and anything they say or write about Donald Trump is fake news, biased and gutter journalism.

The article below was written by a US journalist and sold to Reuters, then ABC Australia picked it up and ran it as accurate- in fact, it’s rubbish and not worth reading- not one line.

I go to Fox News, The White House press conference and direct to videos of the main players and have done since mid last year when I started following the US election because I could see something good happening with the emergence of the current Republican leadership and the demise of the left-wing crowd- Hillary Clinton, Barrack Obama and co.

Donald Trump touches down in Saudi Arabia as trouble swirls at home

20 May 2017

“Dogged by controversy at home, US President Donald Trump has opened a nine-day foreign trip in Saudi Arabia, looking to shift attention from a spiralling political firestorm over his firing of former FBI director James Comey last week.

Key points:

  • US President Donald Trump has arrived in Saudi Arabia — it is his first foreign trip since taking office
  • The trip has been overshadowed by a week of controversies
  • Mr Trump and the Saudi King are expected to sign a $US100b deal for Saudi Arabia to buy American arms

With delicate diplomatic meetings facing him, including three summits, Mr Trump faces a challenge of advancing his “America First” agenda without alienating key allies during his first trip abroad.

Stepping off Air Force One in 38 degrees Celsius heat with his wife Melania, Mr Trump and his entourage received a red-carpet welcome from Saudi King Salman.

The trip has been billed by the White House as a chance to visit places sacred to three of the world’s major religions while giving Mr Trump time to meet with Arab, Israeli and European leaders.

But uproar in Washington threatened to cast a long shadow over the trip. His firing of Mr Comey and the appointment of a special counsel to investigate his campaign’s ties to Russia last year has triggered a stream of bad headlines.

The New York Times reported Mr Trump had called Mr Comey a “nut job” in a private meeting last week in the Oval Office with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US ambassador to the United States Sergei Kislyak.

Former national security advisor Michael Mr Flynn’s contacts with Mr Kislyak last year were a factor in triggering a federal investigation and he was fired in February.

The White House did not deny the report, but said the “the real story is that our national security has been undermined by the leaking of private and highly classified conversations.”

Billions in US-Saudi deals to be signed

After a royal banquet, Mr Trump and the King were to have private talks and participate in a signing ceremony for a number of US-Saudi agreements, including a $US100-billion deal for Saudi Arabia to buy American arms.

National oil giant Saudi Aramco expected to sign $US50 billion of deals with US companies, part of a drive to diversify the kingdom’s economy beyond oil exports, Aramco’s chief executive Amin Nasser said.

Mr Trump is to deliver a speech on Sunday aimed at rallying Muslims in the fight against Islamic militants in Riyadh on Sunday.

He will also attend a summit with Gulf leaders as part of the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council.

Shortly after taking office, Mr Trump had sought to block people from several Muslim-majority nations from entering the United States, but the travel ban has been blocked by federal courts.

The 70-year-old President’s travel to Saudi Arabia, Israel, Italy and Belgium will be Mr Trump’s longest time away from the White House since he took office four months ago.

Even his hand gestures were likely to draw scrutiny in the Middle East, where the thumbs-up sign — a signature move of Mr Trump’s — is considered taboo.

Travel a welcome distraction from Comey controversy

The uproar over Mr Comey’s firing was unlikely to go away.

“It’s almost always true that when a president goes on a big foreign trip, especially one that has some important summits … that that dominates the news and knocks most other stuff out,” Republican strategist Charlie Black said.

Mr Trump, who has expressed a desire for friendlier relations with Moscow, drew a storm of criticism this week when it emerged that he had shared sensitive national security information with Russia’s Mr Lavrov during a meeting last week in the White House.

The President was already under attack for firing Mr Comey in the midst of an FBI probe into Russia’s role in the 2016 election and possible collusion with Trump campaign members.

Moscow has denied any such interference. Mr Trump has denied collusion and denounced the appointment of a special counsel as a witch hunt.

His fellow Republicans in Congress have expressed frustration that Mr Trump’s pro-business economic agenda, highlighted by a plan to cut corporate and individual taxes, have been pushed to the backburner by the turmoil.

“He clearly did have a bad two weeks. And clearly it’s my hope that he does … right the ship, that he improves so that we can just get going,” Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan said on the Hugh Hewitt radio show on Friday.”
