Trump escalates wall row in speech

COURTESY MIRROR JAN 10Trump escalates wall row in speech
He has invited congressional leadership to discuss building of $5.7 bn structure

President Donald Trump used a primetime address to the nation Tuesday to insist on $5.7 billion for a steel wall along the Mexican border that he said would stop the shedding of “American blood” by illegal immigrants.

The nine-minute speech from the Oval Office in the White House contained no concessions to Democrats refusing to fund construction of the wall — a project Trump has made his signature domestic policy idea.

Trump spoke in an unusually measured voice, apparently hoping to claim the moral high ground, and said he wanted to bridge the political divide in what could be the defining power struggle of his turbulent presidency. “I have invited congressional leadership to the White House on Thursday to get this done. Hopefully, we can rise above partisan politics in order to support national security,” he said.

Despite that softer tone, Trump also spent much of the speech doubling down on his controversial message — popular among his right-wing base — that illegal immigration at the USMexican border is above all a threat to the lives of Americans.

Stormy Daniel’s quip

Porn star Stormy Daniels is planning to put on a show of her own for people who want something else to watch. “If you’re looking for anything even remotely worth watching tonight at 9pm EST, I will be folding laundry in my underwear for eight minutes on Instagram live,” Daniels tweeted. She claims to have had a sexual liaison with the thenmarried Trump in 2006.

The election data matter

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort shared polling data during the 2016 presidential campaign with a business associate accused of having ties to Russian intelligence, and prosecutors say he lied to them about it, according to a court filing . The allegation marks the first time prosecutors with special counsel Robert Mueller’s office have accused Trump’s chief campaign aide of sharing election-related information with his Russian contacts. Although the filing does not say whether the polling information was public or what was done with it, it raises the possibility that Russia might have used inside information.
