WASHINGTON (Miami Herald) — “President Donald Trump fulfilled a major campaign promise Tuesday, proposing a $4.1 trillion budget plan that would upend Washington in a big way. … The proposal reflects a conservative vision of smaller government, a drastic rollback of programs for the poor and disabled to prod them into the workforce and a robust hike for the military and border security. It foresees scuttling Barack Obama’s health care law and an overhaul of the tax code, a boon to the wealthiest Americans. … The plan is laced with $3.6 trillion in cuts to domestic agencies, food stamps, Medicaid, highway funding, crop insurance and medical research, among others. Many of the voters who propelled Trump into the presidency last November would see significantly less from the federal government.”
MANCHESTER, England, May 23 (Reuters) – At least 19 people were killed and more than 50 injured in an explosion at the end of a concert by U.S. singer Ariana Grande in the English city of Manchester on Monday and two U.S. officials said a suicide bomber was suspected.
JERUSALEM (AP) — “President Donald Trump has cast the elusive pursuit of peace between Israelis and Palestinians as the “ultimate deal.” But he will step foot in Israel [today] having offered few indications of how he plans to achieve what so many of his predecessors could not. … Israeli officials say they are largely in the dark about what ideas Trump might present for peace or what concessions he may demand. … David Friedman, the new U.S. ambassador to Israel, told the newspaper Israel Hayom that Trump’s goal at the start is simply ‘to begin a discussion that would hopefully lead to peace.'”

What happens when your leader is run out of a foreign country by people with torches and pitchforks?
If you are from the United States you are thinking “at least he was not around here”.
There is nothing a guy who has a frame of reference the width of his outstretched arms can do to understand what is going on in a world that is outside his fingertips.
He is a man-child (sorry children) who has a problem with understanding anything in any language. He has a short temper and is always looking forward to being slighted. His need to “pay back” is so strong he will take out his closest relatives.
What we are dealing with is a man who might have an issue with dementia, and is 70 years old, but that is an excuse and the guy does not allow excuses in his “I always win” world. Now that he is loose, allowed to roam the world and demonstrate he has all the brain cells, firing just as they did when he was a baby, we can expect lots of good stuff.
We do not expect him to do good. Many of us are waiting, wearing out our popcorn machines as we cannot leave to go to the kitchen, for him to deliver his Love Muslims speech, which is written by his friend, the Hate Muslims leader.
Oh, the world stage awaits a loser who only wants to stay in his hotels. He will be staying in all sorts of hotels. And, eat all sorts of meals, which are not American junk food. And, go places he – oh no he won’t land there. It has to be a be hit to his ego to be told “NO” and there is nothing he can do about it. He refuses to take the tram to the top like all humans do.
Try to figure out the odds. Air Force One can probably send out his tweets, but what if the flight crew forgets to tell the guy? Maybe someone tells him he cannot tweet from anywhere other than the U.S.? Considering he is low on the uptake, he might believe them.
