Trump TURNS ON Jared Kushner?…


Date: June 10, 2020

01) Trump TURNS ON Jared Kushner?


“Trump may be getting close to parting ways with Jared Kushner.

In Donald Trump’s West Wing, being a member of the Trump family has historically been the ultimate job security. But that truism is being stress-tested after a run of polls consistently show Trump losing to Joe Biden at this stage of the race—a CNN poll this morning has him down 14 points. According to a source close to the White House, Trump has mulled taking oversight of the campaign away from his son-in-law Jared Kushner. “Trump is malignantly crazy about the bad poll numbers,” a former West Wing official said. “He’s going to broom Kushner and [Brad] Parscale—the numbers are not getting better,” a Republican close to the campaign said.

Trump Builds The Wall…Around The White House…


Date: June 10, 2020

01) Trump Builds The Wall…Around The White House


“Trump finally got the wall he’s been talking about for years.

President Donald Trump is trapped inside the White House, as a tall and imposing wall is erected around him, and prison guards stand watch.

The fencing is intended to keep other people out, of course, and to provide security for the White House. But walls don’t just keep people out—they keep people in too, a reality dramatized by the fact that some of those standing watch are officers of the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Unlike a true prisoner, Trump can get out, but on Monday, a simple walk down the block from his house required a massive deployment of riot police and pepper balls.
