    Riots Sweep US After Black Man Dies During Police Arrest (129)

    US President Donald Trump has long promised to build a barrier wall along the border between the United States and Mexico. Amid the mass nationwide protests following the killing of George Floyd, Americans are getting yet another wall - one surrounding “The People's House."

    Fence Fixation

    They say when all you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail...

    Trump has long promised that Mexico would pay for his border wall, and with fencing now having gone up around the White House, there is yet another wall being built by the POTUS which is not being paid for by Mexico, but by American taxpayers.

    Tall, metal fencing, along with concrete barriers, appeared along 17th Street in the US capital, extending around the White House and the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on Thursday as protests against police violence following Floyd’s death continued for the second week. 
    It seems the fencing has gone up because the White House has been such a major attraction for protest activity. Aw, suddenly The Donald is camera-shy?

      Hints of the Past

      The last time that former US President Donald Trump uttered the words “stand down” to supporters, he ended up giving an endorsement of sorts to the Proud Boys, a violent far-right group that was in support of his 2020 reelection campaign. The remark saw Trump widely criticized for failing to explicitly condemn the group.

      Reality Confirmed

      In the wake of the deadly Capitol riot, it was no secret that supporters of former US President Donald Trump stormed the federal building in an effort to halt the certification of the US election results. However, despite that knowledge, conspiracy theories emerged detailing that “fake” Trump supporters took part in the siege.

      The Taxman Cometh

      The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office initially began its criminal investigation into former US President Donald Trump in August 2019, when the office issued a subpoena to Trump’s accounting firm, Mazars USA, that sought eight years’ worth of tax returns and related documents. Since then, a nearly two-year court battle ensued.
