Donald Trump has visited Pittsburgh, the city where 11 Jews were murdered this week. However, far from comforting a community in pain, Donald Trump was met with protest and vitriol as his anti-Semitic and violent rhetoric is blamed by many for the recent attacks in America.

Denmark have accused Iran of a plot to assassinate three Iranian exiles currently living on Danish soil.

Donald Trump has threatened to end birthright citizenship after his hateful rhetoric towards what he calls anchor-babies continues. Trump has suggested he would do this through an executive order, however, as it is guaranteed in the constitution, Trump does not have the power.

This comes after Trump promised a middle-income tax cut before the mid-terms, something that cannot be done as Congress is not in session.
