Yet another Impeachment for Trump

Trump problems never end …
Is he against everyone or are they all against him?
Maybe both …

After the Russiagate investigation that put the president at risk for impeachment, there is the case of pressure on Ukrainian politicians that would have favored Trump in the elections. The president denied that he had only spoken to Zelens’kyj of Joe Biden.

Although Nancy PelosiΒ (Democratic Party) is beating for her to have an impeachment, it is unlikely that this will happen because the mid-term elections have only guaranteedΒ victory to the parliament and not to the Senate, where an impeachment presentation would be rejected.

Trump is unpleasant to many. His economic power is very large, but other politicians (democrats) would have done some trick to get more votes.

Trump’s consent is falling … but where are all those voters who voted for him in 2016? Trump is one of the few presidents to have lowered unemployment to 4%: a historical record.

Men of the right are always acted on of their power…

INSTAGRAM: from today it is possible to report fake news (even if only in the USA, for now)

instagram

The problem of disinformation through social media is enormous but little is done to combat it, also because it is a headache of extreme complexity. Managing billions of contents and distinguishing the true from the false is something that goes beyond any automatism, which is why the giants of the web have been working for years to understand how to deal with the issue.

Small steps are always better than nothing: in these days Instagram (source Engadget) puts a new functionality for US users, with which it is possible to reporter false news. In the settings, those that are accessed by touching the three vertical dots, you can now report a content as “inappropriate” and then specified “false information”. What happens then? The source isn’t clear: we know that if the report proves to be founded, the post will not be removed but will lose a lot of visibility. The creator of the offending post will not be notified.

The Trump administration postpones duties on Chinese products in mid-December

The application of commercial duties for products imported from China to the USA postponed for three months: the 10% tax is therefore postponed, and even removed entirely for certain types of products.

Originally the new import taxes had to become operational starting from next September 1st. The new decision seems to be designed not to affect North American consumers, and the retailer industry in general, at a time like the one before Christmas, which historically sees a large number of electronic products invade the market.

The list of products with duties moved in mid-December includes mobile phones, laptops, consoles, screens, some types of games as well as products related to clothing and footwear. For some other products the tariffs have been completely canceled, but at the moment it has not been given a detailed list of what these products are.
