The New York Times dropped a report today indicating that President-elect Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, was “nearing agreement on a joint venture” with a huge Chinese financial company, Anbang Insurance Group, for the redevelopment of a piece of Manhattan real estate Kushner’s company owns. At the same time Kushner is negotiating this major project with a company that has expressed hope that Trump’s election would be good for their global business, Kushner is being leaned on as an adviser for the incoming POTUS and he has hired a law firm to see how he can comply with ethics laws regarding his holding an official White House staff role. The Times noted that the deal Kushner is working on has been in the works for a few months and had not been reported on before.
One thing that has been frustrating those in the media now that Donald Trump is about to be President of the United States has been his reluctance to hold conventional press conferences. Trump has not held a full news conferences since late July and canceled a proposed one in mid-December where he said he would use to address his business interests. He has since announced that he will hold a presser next week. In the absence of regular press conferences and interaction with the media, Trump has taken to Twitter as his main mode of public communication, generally taking to the social media platform daily to send out a few missives that are then widely reported by the press.

This isn’t the first time Vicente Fox has gone after Trump over the issue of Trump’s proposed border wall along the Mexican border. It also isn’t the first time he’s used an f-bomb in refuting Trump. Last February, he told Fusion’s Jorge Ramos that “I’m not going to pay for that f*cking wall!” Fox followed that tweet up by trolling Trump on the intelligence report that was released today that showed Russia meddled in the election to help Trump. He also Continue reading "Ex-Mexican President to Trump: ‘I am Not Paying For That F*cken Wall’"
TRUMP, when will you understand that I am not paying for that fucken wall. Be clear with US tax payers. They will pay for it.— Vicente Fox Quesada (@VicenteFoxQue) January 6, 2017
an intelligence report detailing how Russia interfered in the election, President Barack Obama spoke to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos for an exclusive interview. He explained how the Russian government “intended to meddle and they meddled” in the election. He then took aim at Republicans, specifically in the media, who appear to be siding with Russia. “One of the things I am concerned about is the degree to which we’ve seen a lot of commentary lately where there are Republicans or pundits or cable commentators who seem to have more confidence in Vladimir Putin than fellow Americans because those fellow Americans are Democrats,” he told the ABC host. After adding “that cannot be,” Obama wouldn’t directly answer if he was talking about President-elect Donald Trump.
