For good or for bad, Donald Trump is one public figure who needs no introduction. With only 2 months left for the Presidential elections to happen, what is Donald Trump up to?
Well, for starters, both Trump and his wife are planning to sue two major newspapers.
Trump tweeted saying “My lawyers want to sue the failing @nytimes so badly for irresponsible intent. I said no (for now), but they are watching. Really disgusting.”
Earlier on the same day, he made a snarky remark about one of New York Times columnists, Maureen Dowd saying that she was a “neurotic dope.” “Wacky @NYTimesDowd, who hardly knows me, makes up things that I never said for her boring interviews and column. A neurotic dope!”
Melania Trump on the other side has some beef of her own with another famous newspaper The Daily Mail that she wants to settle. According to Mrs. Trump, The Daily Mail and some US Blogger have been stating false information about her past. She has filed a lawsuit of $150 million against them.
That will show them not to mess with the Trumps!
When they are not filing lawsuits and calling out people on Twitter, the Trumps can also be spotted starting controversies about other politicians. The Birther Conspiracy that Trump had been going on and on about since the beginning of time where he claimed President Barrack Obama was not born in the US finally ended last Friday
Since 2011, on various occasions, Trump raised questions about Obama’s birthplace… but somehow still managed to make it look as if his now rival, Hilary Clinton had been the one who started the conspiracy in the first place. According to him, Clinton’s 2008 campaign was where the whole issue started from. And while there may be some grain of truth in this statement (as they actually were some of Hilary’s supporters who did raise an issue on Obama’s birthplace in the presidential campaign of that year), there is no solid proof that they were the ones who started it in the first place.
Trump however, on several, several occasions has been seen being very vocal about Obama’s birthplace interfering with his eligibility criteria of being the President of United States to begin with. On April 27, President Obama ended up presenting his birth certificate to finally put an end to the entire issue.
What do you know, he was born in Honolulu, Hawaii which very much is a part of United States. And even after showing his birth certificate, Trump only recently (last Friday!) agreed that Obama is a US born.
And while he agrees to that, he still thinks that Hilary was the one who started the birthing conspiracy all along – he just finished it. Hopefully now that he has got this sorted and with such little time left, maybe he can pay attention to things that really matter.
