Trump triumphs in speech in Warsaw, Poland President Trump has arrived in Germany and a likely mixed reception from other leaders at the G-20 summit. But in Poland he was wildly cheered by a crowd — much of which was bused into Warsaw by the country's conservative government. The president's first meeting with Vladimir Putin is scheduled for tomorrow. In today's speech , he took a swipe at Putin's international actions. Gulliver Cragg, Warsaw correspondent for France 24 , says Trump is glad to be in a country where his reception is all but guaranteed.
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
