Donald Trump Tells Americans to go back to work, people also die in car accidents.

Trump said that sending people back to work during the coronavirus epidemic is no big deal because people also die from the flu and car accidents.

Trump said during a Fox News virtual town hall, “Look, we lose thousands, I brought some numbers here. We lose thousands and thousands of people a year to the flu. We don’t turn the country off. I mean every year, now when I heard the number, 37,000 people a year, can you believe that? This year we’re having a bad flu season, but we lose thousands of people a year to the flu. We never turned the country off. We lose much more than that to automobile accidents. We didn’t call up the automobile companies and say stop making cars. We don’t want any cars anymore. We have to get back to work.”

The coronavirus is exponentially more deadly than the flu, but there is no vaccine or cure. The coronavirus also spreads more easily than the flu. The country responded to the rise in auto accident fatalities with seat belt laws and other safety measures.

Trump is suggesting that the coronavirus is no big deal, some people are going to die, so that shouldn’t stop the country from getting back to work.

The big thing to remember is that Donald Trump doesn’t have the power to lift the state restrictions. He can talk about reopening the economy, but there is nothing that he can do to force the states to lift the public health restrictions.

Trump is jeopardizing American lives because he is worried about his reelection campaign. The recession is coming no matter what Trump says, but the rhetoric that the president is spreading is dangerous and will get people killed.

Agency Report

News of the impeachment of US President, Donald Trump has elicited reactions worldwide.

Indeed, micro-blogging site Twitter, has seen a deluge of comments since Wednesday when the news broke.

The United States President, Donald Trump was impeached on Wednesday by the House of Representatives.

He was impeached for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

The result was widely expected. However, Donald Trump still remains President. The battle now shifts to the US Senate where the case will now advance to a trial to determine his removal from office.

Donald Trump, the 45th US President, becomes the third occupant of the White House in American history to be impeached.

He is also accused of a White House visit to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy; to investigate his political rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter for his own political gain. Further, he is accused of obstructing Congress by refusing to cooperate with the impeachment investigation.

In a 10-hour debate leading up to the vote; lawmakers argued for and against two articles of impeachment alleging abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Specifically, this was related to the president’s dealings in Ukraine.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP have Threatened the whole country of Sweden over ‘Asap Rocky’

The POTUS says the United States’ economic relationship with Sweden is at risk over the rap star’s detention.

(AllHipHop News) U.S. President Donald Trump has called for A$AP Rocky’s immediate release from a Swedish prison after the rapper was charged with assault on Thursday.

Trump previously assured Kim Kardashian and Kanye West he would investigate Rocky’s arrest and his three-week incarceration after he was involved in a street fight with two men he assured police officials were high on drugs, and now the American leader has tweeted his support for the rap star while dissing Sweden’s Prime Minister.

“Very disappointed in Prime Minister Stefan Lofven for being unable to act,” he wrote. “Sweden has let our African American Community down in the United States. I watched the tapes of A$AP Rocky, and he was being followed and harassed by troublemakers. Treat Americans fairly! #FreeRocky

“Give A$AP Rocky his FREEDOM. We do so much for Sweden but it doesn’t seem to work the other way around. Sweden should focus on its real crime problem!”

Hours earlier Rocky was charged with assault by prosecutor Daniel Suneson, who said in a statement he had filed the counts against the artist and two others after concluding that “the events in question constitute a crime, despite claims of self-defense and provocation.”

Trump clampdown on US visa to Nigerian Citizens is a fake News-Donald Trump-see interesting details and photos

“I’ve got my eyes on you.”

Few things unite Nigeria’s middle classes like anxiety over international visa application processes—and none more so than for the United States.

Depending on social class and income, the visa can mean anything from facilitating a business trip or a summer holiday to being a chance to chase the American dream. But, as hundreds of thousands of Nigerians apply annually, rejection rates and a lack of clarity over what consular officers base their rejection on has resulted in a reality where the process has been mystified as a high-stakes game of chance.

The Trump administration’s policies clamping down on visa applications from Nigeria is stoking even more fear and triggering waves of apprehension-fueled rumors. Or as Trump himself would call it: fake news.

Just last month, the United States embassy in Nigeria was forced to deny a widespread rumor that it had placed a ban on issuing student visas to Nigerians. The rumor took off and seemed believable for many Nigerians especially given recent policies by the Trump administration.

After reportedly considering visa clampdown measures including issuing visas for shorter validity periods for countries whose nationals have high rates of overstaying visas (Nigerians were the highest ranked African country for US visa overstays in 2018), the US indefinitely suspended its interview waiver process for visa renewals for Nigerian applicants. The waiver process previously allowed holders of two-year visas, usually frequent travelers, to renew them by submitting their passports and supporting documents for review rather than going through in-person interviews for every application.

The rumors have seeped through since Trump got into office: in the wake of the controversial Muslim ban, tales of Nigerian travelers being questioned at American points of entry also made the rounds. While some were genuine, like in the case of one of Nigeria’s most prominent software engineers, many others were likely oversold with Nigerians deliberately avoiding flights with stopovers in countries believed to be cross-hairs of Trump.

Regardless, the fear-fueled rumors and the administration’s policies are having an effect on potential travelers, says Ola Oni, an Abuja-based travel and visa consultant who’s worked in space for almost a decade. As the process becomes more stringent, Oni says anecdotal evidence from applicants who have been through the visa process recently suggests there are already higher levels of application denials. The net result is that more people, including some who have successfully obtained visas in the past, have become “jittery” about the prospect of interviews and, in some cases, prefer to change travel plans rather than risk a rejection. “The situation can be conceived as a reflection of the Trump administration’s policies,” he says. By itself, stopping the interview waiver process already “sends a message,” he adds.

But the allure of an American visa means that the embassies in Nigeria will still receive thousands of applicants. For his part, after being rejected last year while applying for a short-term visa to allow his young family go on holiday together for the first time, Ebenezer, a Lagos-based sports presenter, says he will apply again this year albeit halfheartedly.

“Trump’s policies have had an impact on me and will be at the back of my mind during the interview,” he says. “If we get rejected, I most probably won’t apply anymore until Trump leaves office.”
