At the Western wall in Jerusalem, known for thousands of years as a holy place of pilgrimage and tears, Trump writes “it’s a great honor to be here with all my friends – so amazing”
For the second time in two days, the internet goes viral with Melania swatting Trump’s hand away when he tries to grab hers as they disembark Air Force One
A federal appeals court in Virginia refuses to reinstate Trump’s Muslim ban, saying it “drips with religious intolerance, animus and discrimination”
At NATO conference, Trump shoves Prime Minister of Montenegro aside for a photo-op and then refuses to affirm NATO mutual-aid clause, instead lecturing NATO countries on underpaying their dues
At G-7 Summit, Trump says Germans “are bad, very bad”, for selling cars in the U.S.
After a bomb at an Ariana Grande concert in England kills dozens of young people, Trump calls the murderers “losers”
In the most aggressive violation yet of the constitution’s emoluments clause, Trump aides assert that he will not identify or return payments or profits from foreign governments
After it is revealed that Trump son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner is now a person of interest in RussiaGate investigation, The Washington Post reports that Kushner and the Russian Ambassador discussed having a secret communication channel that could not be monitored by U.S. intelligence agencies
Internet explodes again, this time with video of French President Emmanuel Macron and Trump in handshake war, with each president’s knuckles turning white, their respective faces tightened, and their jaws clenched
