    Here's a quick summary of the main points in last night's letter:

    1- The president is running a reelection campaign openly based on racism. This morning, he tweeted “I am happy to inform all the people living their Suburban Lifestyle Dream that you will no longer be bothered or financially hurt by having low income housing built in your neighborhood

    2- But for all that Trump seems eager to win reelection, he appears to have little interest in governing

    3- Apparently frustrated that even Republicans did not want to put $1.75 billion into the package to fund the construction of a new FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C., which would keep the site from becoming a hotel that could rival his own, Trump appears to have abandoned the whole process of negotiating a new bill.

    4 - Instead of focusing on the looming economic crisis, Trump upset members of both parties today when he announced that he would be withdrawing 12,000 troops from Germany. Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT), a former Republican presidential nominee agreed: “The plan outlined by the Administration today to remove thousands of U.S. troops from Germany is a grave error. It is a slap in the face at a friend and ally… and it is a gift to Russia coming at a time when we just have learned of its support for the Taliban and reports of bounties on killing American troops.” Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ), the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said "champagne must be flowing freely this evening at the Kremlin."

    5 - And there is now news of another Russian attack on the U.S.: yesterday U.S. officials said that two people from Russia’s military intelligence service, the GRU, are behind an effort to spread disinformation about the coronavirus pandemic.

    Last night's letter contained an interesting tidbit:

    This afternoon, we learned that in December 2019, Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, received a package of “information” about Joe Biden from Andrii Derkach, a Ukrainian lawmaker linked to Putin. Derkach claims to have sent packages to Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC), as well as former White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, but it appears there is actually a shipping receipt for the package to Nunes.

    And people here say that this is an normal country? No of course there is no Russian meddling in our ElectionAstonished. We are the laughing stock of the world right now and no one on this "island" cares. Nunes is just the "water" boy for the Trump "gang".

    I just wonder when everything here "collapses" under its own incompetent weight.

    The GOP is now attacking "reporters" who don't sing their tune or have "info" which the Trumpers don't like. The Trump clonies want to stop such; it is just like Hitler did; "journalists" should only sing Trump's tune, which is exactly as in any country which are run by "dictators". Sorry people, indeed as I've said many times, that is Trump's objective to be an dictator without any rules or laws. All the news about him has to be "charming" and "lovely" otherwise "jail"
