Trump says will make America safe; Links Immigrants to Crime

Donald Trump pledged to cheering Republicans that as president he will bring back safe America, strictly curb immigration and
save the nation from Hillary Clinton’s record of “death, destruction, terrorism and weakness.”

Trump on Thursday formally accepted his party’s nomination, the same way he launched his campaign by slamming immigrants and linking them to crime.

Trump did not budge from his combative stance on immigration as he wrapped up the week’s Republican National Convention held in Cleveland, Ohio, NBC News reported.

He officially accepted the Republican Party’s nomination for president by telling a pumped-up crowd that the nation’s security is under threat from immigrants and illegal immigration.

“Nearly 180,000 people with criminal records ordered deported from our country are tonight roaming free to threaten peaceful citizens,” NBC News quoted the Manhattan real estate mogul as saying.

Trump’s remarks were met with chants of “Build a Wall”, which has become one of the slogans of his campaign.

Trump reminded the crowd that on Monday night they heard from three people whose loved ones were victims murdered by immigrants not legally in the country.

“We heard from three parents whose children were killed by illegal immigrants Â… They are just three brave representatives of many thousands,” Trump said.

The billionaire businessman said nothing has affected him more than the time he spent with mothers and fathers “who have lost their children to violence spilling over the border,” NBC News said.

Trump also pointed to immigration as the ill that has perpetuated economic malaise in this country.

“Decades of record immigration have produced lower wages and higher unemployment for our citizens, especially for African Americans and Latino workers,” Trump said.

He also sold himself as the champion of a downtrodden working class, promising to restore “law and order” and casting himself as a change agent against presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

“I am your voice…Hillary Clinton’s message is that things will never change. Never ever.” Politico quoted Trump as saying.

“My message is that things have to change and they have to change right now,” he added.

He also spoke of spiking crime, “third-world” airports, growing trade deficits, “chaos in our communities,” and terrorism on the home front. Abroad, he said the situation was “worse than it has ever been before,” Politico reported citing the business magnate.

“This is the legacy of Hillary Clinton: death, destruction, terrorism and weakness…My plan is the exact opposite of the radical and dangerous immigration policy of Hillary Clinton,” he said.

“Lock her up!” the crowd burst out repeatedly during Trump’s speech and throughout the week.

His speech lasted for 75 minutes, beating out former President Bill Clinton’s acceptance speech at his party’s convention in 1996.

At the end, Trump and his Vice President nominee Mike Pence were joined by their families on state.

US unemployment rate falls to 50-year low

Published

on

The U.S. unemployment rate fell in September to a new five-decade low of 3.5%, while employers added a modest 136,000 jobs.

The Labor Department says that despite the ultra-low unemployment rate, which was down from 3.7% in August, average hourly wages slipped by a penny. Hourly pay rose just 2.9% from a year earlier, lower than 3.4% at the beginning of the year.

Hiring has slowed this year as the U.S.-China trade war has intensified, global growth has slowed, and businesses have cut back on their investment spending. Still, hiring has averaged 157,000 in the past three months, enough to lower the unemployment rate over time.

The unemployment rate for Latinos fell to 3.9%, the lowest on records dating from 1973.

New York, Sep 26 : US President Donald Trump was subjected to an embarrassment when the MSNBC news channel cut away from his press conference while he was speaking on the controversy surrounding him over the Ukrainian probe against former Vice President Joe Biden.

Trump on Wednesday was addressing the press conference against the backdrop of impeachment proceedings announced against him by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi following allegations that he put pressure on the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to order a probe against Biden whose family has business interests there.

The allegation against Trump came to light because of a whistleblower and a transcript of the conversation between him and Zelensky in July, which has become public.

As Trump was speaking to the media after meeting Zelensky to clarify his position, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace cut into it, saying: “We hate to do this but the President isn’t telling the truth.”

She added that Trump was trying to do it to deflect the attention from his impeachment.

According to the transcript of the telephonic conversation that has gone public, Trump is heard asking Zelensky to “do us a favour”, after the latter expresses gratitude for the military aid the US provided to his country.

Trump’s words of “do us a favour” is seen as a quid pro quo for the American military aid, because of which the impeachment proceedings have been announced.

After Wallace cut the press conference, her guest on the programme, justice and security analyst Matthew Miller, rebuked Trump for saying that Biden and his son had done wrong.

“This story has been looked at and thoroughly debunked by everyone involved,” Miller said, adding the real issue was whether Trump’s conduct is “impeachable”.

Trump is facing problem at a time when he is in New York to attend the UN General Assembly.

Kim Jong-un receives ‘excellent’ letter from Trump

Kim , Trump

Pyongyang, June 23 North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has received a personal letter with “excellent” and “interesting” content from US President Donald Trump, Pyongyang’s state media said on Sunday.

“After reading the letter, the Supreme Leader of the Party, the state and the armed forces said with satisfaction that the letter is of excellent content,” the Korean Central News Agency said, referring to its leader.

“Appreciating the political judging faculty and extraordinary courage of President Trump, Kim Jong-un said that he would seriously contemplate the interesting content,” it added.

The KCNA did not disclose when and how the letter was delivered to Kim, reports Yonhap News Agency.

The letter appears to be in response to the one Kim sent to Trump recently in time for the anniversary of their first-ever summit in Singapore last June.

Trump had described Kim’s letter as “beautiful” and “very warm”. He also emphasized that the relationship between them remains strong and that “something will happen that’s going to be very positive”.

The exchange of correspondence between the leaders renewed hopes for a resumption of denuclearization talks which have stalled since the breakdown of their second summit in February.

The summit collapsed as Pyongyang wanted sanctions relief as a corresponding measure in exchange for dismantling its Yongbyon nuclear complex, while Washington insisted that sanctions should remain in place until the North completely gives up its nuclear weapons programme.
