US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says he wants a "clean" internet.

What he means by that is he wants to remove Chinese influence, and Chinese companies, from the internet in the US.

Well, if Wotsit Hitler can't rig himself a Nobel prize...

Trump denies NYT report stating White House enquired about adding additional presidents to Mt Rushmore


Remember, groovers, we're dealing with somebody who enquired about buying Greenland.

I wonder which one(s) he had in mind...

That said, it'd be amazing if he arranged this, fudged permission to do it, and then was elected out just in time to see Biden carry the project out but with Obama being added as a genuine historical moment in US history being the first president of colour. Trump would implode.

Trump has a strong claim to the Nobel Peace Prize if you measure him on how many countries he’s bombed or invaded compared to his predecessors. That’s not how I would measure a peacemaker but an interesting one to put to Stop the War types who do.

Woah!

Steve Bannon charged with fraud over Mexico wall funds
Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon has been arrested and charged with fraud over a fundraising campaign to build a wall on the US-Mexico border.

Mr Bannon and three others defrauded hundreds of thousands of donors in connection with the "We Build the Wall" campaign, which raised $25m (£19m), the US Department of Justice (DoJ) said.

Mr Bannon received more than $1m, at least some of which he used to cover personal expenses, the DoJ said.

He is due to appear in court later.

"I've never had personal dealings with Steve Bannon. I think he had some minor role in our campaign branch office in North Dakota. I only deal with the best folk. The bestliest."
