The reports come in – people n the USA are afraid to breathe because of raids by ICE – his beefed up Immigration and Customs Enforcement goons (ICE). On the other hand Global Warming may result from the potential Trade Wars he may throw on the US.

To make things worse reports tell us that CNN and other news organizations were blocked today, Friday, from an off-camera White House press briefing. The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times and Politico were also excluded from the meeting, which is known as a gaggle and is less formal than the televised Q-and-A session in the White House briefing room.

Conservative media organizations Breitbart News, The Washington Times and One America News Network were allowed in. These are the Bannon shepherded media friendly to Trump.

These are unacceptable conditions for a democracy – they are rather the kind of moves that an Erdogan or a Putin are trained to do. Now this US White House after one month of Trump is
tracking at high speed. WORLD BEWARE.

And from Huffington Post: A set of memos released by the Department of Homeland Security Tuesday revealed the Trump administration has broadened the categories of undocumented immigrants considered priorities for deportation. “The Department will no longer exempt classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement,” one document says. DHS also directed ICE to hire 10,000 additional people to get the job done.

Customs and Border Protection officers requested identification documents from passengers disembarking a domestic flight at New York City’s JFK Airport Wednesday. In a statement that a New York Times reporter posted on Twitter, CBP said it was assisting ICE officials in locating a person they believed may have been on the flight.

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said at a press conference in Mexico City Thursday there would be no “use of military forces in immigration operations,” and “no – repeat, no – mass deportations.” His address came hours after President Donald Trump said that recent immigration enforcement efforts were a “military operation.”

The British Conservative Extremist Nigel Farage is swimming these days with the US Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) at AC Hotel National Harbor, Washington DC area – in Maryland.

Many States in Europe have as well groupings that honor Trump. Trump’s people – quite a few of them – have had questionable contacts with Putin’s people. European governments are worried that a Yalta kind of construct that splits Europe may be what Trump smokes in his dreams.
How will China and North Korea react react to this newly dreamt up World order?

The result – an America made unsafe rather then great.
