Jeremy Corbyn Slams Trump


Courtesy of The Guardian:

  • Corbyn criticised President Trump for his comments about the London Bridge attack. (See 12.35pm.)

At this time it is more important than ever that we stay united in our communities it is the strength of our communities that gets us through these awful times as London Mayor Sadiq Khan recognised but which the current occupant in the White House has neither the grace nor the sense to grasp.

Whether we are Muslim or Christian, black or white, male or female, gay or straight, we are united by our values, by our determination for a better world, and that we can build a better society.

Boom. No love lost there.

    Good for Jeremy Corbyn to not only call out nmp, but to not even refer to him by name, or by his title.

    And there is this tweet from the former UK ambassador to the US.

    The US Embassy In London Just Publicly Defied Trump In Response To His London Mayor Attack

    Instead of offering condolences and promises of support, Trump accused Mayor Sadiq Khan of not taking the attacks seriously – and by implication, that Khan was attempting to enable the terrorists because he himself is a Muslim.

    Such a deplorable response to the mayor of the capital city of our closest ally who is merely trying to keep the public calm in a time of crisis prompted the United States’ chargé d’affaires ad interim at the Embassy in London, Lewis Lukens, to override the President’s insultingly inflammatory remarks with a message that makes it clear who the real leader in this situation is.

    Of course, the chargé d’affaires had to make the statement, because 135 days into his administration, our lazy and incompetent President has not formally nominated nor had confirmed an ambassador to our nation’s closest foreign partner.

    The Russia problem in a big nutshell: In
    case you haven’t connected the news dots… Putin controls the largest
    oil company in Russia. He made a 500 Billion dollar deal with the CEO of
    Exxon Mobil. Obama put sanctions in place which stopped that deal.
    Russia then hacked into the emails and
    gave them to wikileaks in order to get Trump elected. When the CIA told
    Congress this in September (James Comey was also in that meeting), Mitch
    McConnell refused to tell the American people, blackmailing Obama
    saying he would frame it as playing partisan politics during the
    election. Comey released the infamous no-information letter. Mitch
    McConnell’s wife was picked for Trump’s cabinet. The CEO of Exxon is now
    the Secretary of State. Wonder why our President has been so quick to
    dismiss the CIA’s findings?….it gets better..2/…Here are some facts :
    Decide for yourselves 1) Trump owes Blackstone/ Bayrock group $560
    million dollars (one of his largest debtors and the primary reason he
    won’t reveal his tax returns)
    2) Blackstone is owned
    wholly by Russian billionaires, who owe their position to Putin and have
    made billions from their work with the Russian government.
    Other companies that have borrowed from Blackstone have claimed that
    owing money to them is like owing to the Russian mob and while you owe
    them, they own you for many favors.
    4) The Russian
    economy is badly faltering under the weight of its over-dependence on
    raw materials which as you know have plummeted in the last 2 years
    leaving the Russian economy scrambling to pay its debts.
    Russia has an impetus to influence our election to ensure the per
    barrel oil prices are above $65 ( they are currently hovering around
    6) Russia can’t affordably get at 80% of its oil
    reserves and reduce its per barrel cost to compete with America at $45
    or Saudi Arabia at $39. With Iranian sanctions being lifted Russia will
    find another inexpensive competitor increasing production and pushing
    Russia further down the list of suppliers.
    As for
    Iranian sanctions, the 6 countries lifting them allowing Iran to collect
    on the billions it is owed for pumping oil but not being paid for it.
    These billions Iran can only get if the Iranian nuclear deal is signed.
    Trump spoke of ending the deals which would cause oil sales sanctions to
    be reimposed, which would make Russian oil more competitive.
    Rex Tillerson (Trump’s pick for Secretary of State) is the head of
    ExxonMobil, which is in possession of patented technology that could
    help Putin extract 45% more oil at a significant cost savings to Russia,
    helping Putin put money in the Russian coffers to help reconstitute its
    military and finally afford to mass produce the new and improved
    systems that it had invented before the Russian economy had slowed so
    8) Putin cannot get access to these new cost
    saving technologies OR outside oil field development money, due to US
    sanctions on Russia, because of its involvement in Ukrainian civil war.
    Look for Trump to end sanctions on Russia and to back out of the
    Iranian nuclear deal, to help Russia rebuild its economy, strengthen
    Putin and make Tillerson and Trump even richer, thus allowing Trump to
    satisfy his creditors at Blackstone.
    10) With Trump’s
    fabricated hatred of NATO and the U.N., the Russian military
    reconstituted, the threat to the Baltic states is real. Russia retaking
    their access to the Baltic Sea from Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia and
    threatening the shipping of millions of cubic feet of natural gas to
    lower Europe from Scandinavia, allowing Russia to make a good case for
    its oil and gas being piped into eastern Europe.

      Hello Irish! Oh, what a tangled web they weave, when first, they practice to deceive… It’s just a matter of connecting the dots. The commenter nailed this one on the head!!! This is what happens when wealthy benefactors and enablers buy their way into the corridors of power; lie, cheat, steal, deceive… utterly treasonous behaviour!

      Sane, educated people can see through this haze of corruption; the exception being The Donald’s rabid “base”. He loves tossing scraps of red meat to the “guns and bibulls” crowd, since he knows they will eat it up with zeal! Hell, his own smarmy, little weasel son-in-law admitted that trump likes “stupid voters” – enough said!

      That whole cabal of criminals are drunk on power, they will be the masters of their own downfall. As history shows, just follow the money…
