Clinton’s Bathroom Break ‘Disgusting’: Trump

Published

on

A war of words between Republican and Democratic presidential frontrunners Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton has intensified over her charge that he has become a recruiting tool for ISIS.

Donald Trump used strong language  to describe Hillary Clinton’s bathroom break at Saturday’s Democratic presidential debate.

At a rally in Michigan Monday, the Republican presidential candidate recounted Clinton’s trip to the restroom, which caused her to be late
“I know where she went — it’s disgusting, I don’t want to talk about it,” Trump said. “No, it’s too disgusting. Don’t say it, it’s disgusting.”

Trump demanded an apology for Clinton’s claim at Saturday night’s Democratic debate that the real estate Trump’s rhetoric against Muslims is being used as propaganda by terrorist groups, though there is no evidence Islamic State has put him in videos.

“I will demand an apology from Hillary. She should apologize,” Trump said on NBC News. “She lies about emails,” he said. “She lies about Whitewater. She lies about everything. She will be a disaster as president of the United States.”

Clinton camp’s blunt response was “Hell no”-she won’t apologize. Her spokesman, Brian Fallon said Monday: “Hillary Clinton will not be apologizing to Donald Trump for correctly pointing out how his hateful rhetoric only helps ISIS recruit more terrorists.”

Clinton came under heavy criticism from fact-checkers when she said at Saturday night’s debate that ISIS is “showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists.”

White House and National Security Council officials told ABC News they are unaware of any examples of ISIS including Trump in the terrorist group’s videos.

Jennifer Palmieri, Clinton’s communications director, clarified that “She’s not referring to a specific video, but he is being used in social media by ISIS as propaganda.”

Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, said about Trump in a conference call Monday: “He’s a bully, and bullies need to be stood up to, and that’s why we made the decision to go hard at his rhetoric.”

“Clinton and her Democratic challengers mentioned Trump nine times in their Saturday debate-a sign of how he has come to dominate the political conversation on both sides of the aisle,” the Wall Street Journal pointed out.

The Journal cited experts who study terrorism as saying the evidence is thin that Trump, who urged a ban on Muslims entering the US and mosque surveillance after the Paris and California attacks, has been a specific focus in terrorism recruitment and propaganda to date.

Meanwhile, President Barack Obama too jumped into the debate saying Trump was exploiting the resentment and anxieties of working-class men to boost his campaign.

Demographic changes and economic stresses, including “flat-lining” wages and incomes, have meant that “particularly blue-collar men have had a lot of trouble in this new economy,” he said in the interview with National Public Radio.

“You combine those things, and it means that there is going to be potential anger, frustration, fear – some of it justified, but just misdirected,” the president added.

“I think somebody like Mr. Trump is taking advantage of that. That’s what he’s exploiting during the course of his campaign.”

Obama also argued that some of the scorn directed at him personally stemmed from the fact that he is the first African-American to hold the White House.

London, May 26 : UK Prime Minister Boris Johnsons approval rating has dropped 20 points to -1 per cent after he refused to sack his chief aide, Dominic Cummings for allegedly breaking coronavirus lockdown rules, it was reported on Tuesday.

According to Savanta, a coronavirus data tracker which looks at how the UK population is responding to the pandemic, the Prime Minister’s rating was previously +19 per cent just four days ago, the Metro newspaper reported.

It stated that the overall government approval rate is now at -2 per cent, having dropped 16 points in a day.

Johnson’s approval rating is now also the lowest of all the individuals examined, with Health Secretary Matt Hancock’s the second lowest at 4 per cent.

Cummings’ rating has not been tracked.

Labour leader Keir Starmer’s approval rating also lifted to 12 per cent on Monday, while Chancellor Rishi Sunak dropped from 35 per cent four days ago to 20 per cent.

Cummings has been accused of breaking lockdown rules he helped make after it emerged he travelled from London to his parents home in Durham when his wife fell ill with suspected coronavirus in March, reports the Metro newspaper.

The Prime Minister’s chief adviser has refused to step down over the allegations, admitting he never considered resigning and he doesn’t regret his actions.

At a press conference on Monday, Johnson admitted he regrets the “confusion and pain” the scandal has caused the British public.

But he said that he believed Cummings acted “legally” and “with integrity”.

Canberra, May 26 : Smoke from Australia’s devastating 2019-20 bushfires killed at least 445 people, health experts revealed on Tuesday.

Fay Johnston, a public health expert from the Menzies Institute for Medical Research at the University of Tasmania, told the bushfire royal commission on Tuesday that her team estimated that 445 people died as a result of the smoke that blanketed much of the nation’s east coast, reports Xinhua news agency.

It takes the total death toll from the 2019-2020 bushfire season, which has been dubbed the “Black Summer”, to nearly 480 after 34 people lost their lives directly.

According to modelling produced by Johnston and her colleagues, 80 per cent of Australians were affected by the smoke at some point, including 3,340 people who were hospitalized with heart and lung problems.

“We were able to work out a yearly cost of bushfire smoke for each summer season and… our estimates for the last season were A$2 billion in health costs,” Johnston said.

“There’s fluctuation year to year, of course, but that was a major departure from anything we had seen in the previous 20 years.”

Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra all had periods where they had the worst air quality in the world as a result of the smoke.

Commissioners also heard on Tuesday that the increasing frequency of significant bushfire events in Australia meant that survivors no longer feel safe during the recovery phase.

“Disasters are no longer perceived as rare events, they are often seen as climate change, and they’re part of our new reality,” Lisa Gibbs, a child welfare expert from the University of Melbourne, said.

“We don’t know how that is going to affect recovery because the seeds of hope are a really important part of people’s ability to deal with what has happened and to get back on track.”
