President Trump has pledged his support to the people of France after the iconic Notre Dame cathedral suffered a devastating fire last night. On Twitter, the president noted it was “horrible” to watch the scenes from Paris, and suggested “flying water tankers could be used to put it out.” It was confirmed this morning that the fire had been entirely extinguished.
Closer to home, Trump is also facing his first Republican challenger for the 2020 presidential election in the form of Massachusetts governor Bill Weld, although is it deemed unlikely that anyone will seize the party’s nomination from the incumbent.
It was also announced late yesterday that the Mueller report into Russian interference in the 2020 presidential election, and any links to the Trump campaign, would be released in a redacted form to the public this Thursday.
“We come from a broken family, we are a little unsettled,” Ms Obama said. “Sometimes you spend the weekend with divorced dad. That feels like fun but then you get sick. That is what America is going through. We are living with divorced dad.”
The president seemed puzzled with Bernie Sanders appearance in a Fox News townhall, and refers to himself and the network as “we.”
“So weird to watch Crazy Bernie on [Fox News],” Mr Trump tweeted on Tuesday. “Not surprisingly, [Bret Baier] and the ‘audience’ was so smile and nice. Very strange, and now we have [Donna Brazile]?”
Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, who announced his candidacy as a Republican challenger to the president, said he could not — in good conscience — support Mr Trump.
“I could not support Donald Trump for president,” Mr Weld said. “I’m not saying I would ever endorse a Democrat in this race, but I could not support the president.”
