Donald Trump bans even right-wing Daily Mail

Anti-Trump demonstrations held in cities around the globe

21 January 2017

Protesters in the tens of thousands snaked through the streets of London in solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington. From Paris to Prague, Rome to Berlin, even as far away as Japan and Australia, they are vastly different worlds united under one message. Jonathan Vigliotti reports.

BBC, Guardian And Daily Mail Among Those Banned From White House Press Briefing

Just after Trump described them as the ‘enemy of the people’.

Donald Trump’s press secretary caused outrage after banning a number of news organisations, including the BBC, from a White House press briefing on Friday.

The Guardian and The Daily Mail were also blocked from the meeting in a move that has angered supporters of a free press’s role in a democracy.

That even the British Daily Mail, with its history of vile attacks on immigrants and other far-right policies, looks like being not far-right enough for the Trump administration is remarkable.

Maybe the Daily Mail angered the Trump administration with a few less far-right reports on police racism in Ferguson, Missouri?

President Donald Trump delivered a violent, ultra-right speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Friday, attacking the media and reprising many of the “America First” themes outlined in his inauguration address one month ago: here.

    THE US Congress should beware a new outbreak of McCarthyism, a Republican probing Russian links to President Donald Trump’s election campaign says.

    California representative Devin Nunes, who chairs the committee investigating the allegations made in the Washington Post, said on Monday that he hadn’t seen any evidence so far to back the allegations.

    “We can’t have McCarthyism back in this place,” he said.

    We can’t have the government… chasing down American citizens, hauling them before the Congress as if they’re some secret Russian agent.”

    But the senior Democrat on the committee Adam Schiff, also of California, said: “The committee has reached no conclusion on whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia” as it had so far called no witnesses or obtained documentary evidence.

    The committee is looking into claims by anonymous spooks that Mr Trump’s campaign advisers were in touch with Russian intelligence during last year’s elections.

    It followed accusations by Barack Obama’s outgoing government in January that Kremlin-paid hackers leaked embarrassing emails from Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

    Mr Nunes, a member of Mr Trump’s transition team, admitted that the White House had asked him to talk to a reporter about the probe, but hadn’t told him what to say.

    Former Republican president George W Bush — who publicly refused to vote for Mr Trump in November — has now criticised the president in an interview with Today magazine.

    The author of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq attacked Mr Trump over Russia, his travel ban on seven majority-Muslim nations and his description of the corporate media as the “enemy of the American people.”

    “I think we all need answers,” Mr Bush said of the Russia allegations. “I’m not sure the right avenue to take. I am sure, though, that that question needs to be answered.”

    “We need an independent media to hold people like me to account,” he added. “Power can be very addictive, and it can be corrosive.”

    The man who founded the Guantanamo Bay prison camp and oversaw the building of a border fence with Mexico said: “I am for an immigration policy that is welcoming and upholds the law.”
