Tlaib Says She Will Not Visit Grandmother in Israel After Being Treated ‘Like a Criminal’

Fri, 08/16/2019 - 09:36

Tlaib Says She Will Not Visit Grandmother in Israel After Being Treated ‘Like a Criminal’Representative Rashida Tlaib said she will not visit Israel to visit her grandmother and other Palestinian relatives on the West Bank after being treated "like a criminal" by Israel, which announced Thursday that Tlaib and Representative Ilhan Omar would not be allowed into the country on a planned political visit."Silencing me & treating me like a criminal is not what she wants for me," the Michigan Democrat said of her grandmother. "It would kill a piece of me. I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in-fighting against racism, oppression & injustice."Israel's interior minister Aryeh Deri announced Friday that the country would sanction Tlaib's humanitarian request for a visit to her grandmother, who is 90, as long as the congresswoman pledges not to promote boycotts against Israel during such a visit.“This could be my last opportunity to see her. I will respect any restrictions and will not promote boycotts against Israel during my visit,” Tlaib said previously of a potential family visit.Israel on Thursday said the Tlaib and Omar would be barred from entering the country. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended the decision at length, citing the lawmakers' support of the BDS movement as well as their decision not to request meetings with any Israeli officials and the fact that they listed their destination as "Palestine" rather than Israel.A few hours earlier, President Trump had warned the Jewish state against admitting Omar and Tlaib into the country.“It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep. Tlaib to visit,” Trump wrote in a tweet, calling the congresswomen a "disgrace" and stating that, “They hate Israel & all Jewish people.""The decision by Israel to bar her granddaughter, a U.S. Congresswoman, is a sign of weakness b/c the truth of what is happening to Palestinians is frightening," Tlaib wrote Thursday on Twitter along with a photo of her grandmother.


Fearful Argentines Pull Dollars From Banks After Election Shock

Fearful Argentines Pull Dollars From Banks After Election Shock(Bloomberg) -- Terms of Trade is a daily newsletter that untangles a world embroiled in trade wars. Sign up here. Argentines have been withdrawing dollars from banks and keeping them at home since President Mauricio Macri’s defeat in a key primary election sent the peso tumbling.Savers pulled more than $700 million from their dollar-denominated accounts on Monday and Tuesday alone, according to the most recent official data. That’s equivalent to 2.3% of total dollar deposits in the financial system. It was also the largest two-day withdrawal in percentage terms in more than five years.Long used to currency crises, many Argentines are still traumatized by the so-called corralito -- economic measures to stop a 2001 bank run that effectively froze bank accounts and halted dollar withdrawals.Those dollars are considered part of the central bank’s gross foreign reserves, and the withdrawals help explain why reserves dropped by $2.6 billion this week, to $63.7 billion.Argentine Central Bank Revamps Strategy to Defend PesoForeign reserves are also falling because policy makers are selling dollars to shore up the peso -- so far this week, $503 million were used in currency market interventions. Argentina on Friday is expected to use an additional $500 million from its reserves to pay maturing Treasury bills known as Letes.To contact the reporter on this story: Ignacio Olivera Doll in Buenos Aires at ioliveradoll@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Andrea Jaramillo at ajaramillo1@bloomberg.net, ;Daniel Cancel at dcancel@bloomberg.net, Walter BrandimarteFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.


Supporter Who Trump Mocked as Fat Says ‘Everything’s Good’: ‘I Love the Guy!’

Fri, 08/16/2019 - 09:31

 ‘I Love the Guy!’A Trump supporter who President Donald Trump initially believed was a protester disrupting Thursday’s campaign rally in New Hampshire has absolutely no ill will to the president for mocking his physical appearance and saying he has seriously overweight.Midway through Thursday’s rally, the president reacted to protesters interrupting his speech by pointing to one and shouting: “That guy has got a serious weight problem. Go home, get some exercise!”As it turns out, the man he mocked is actually a rabid supporter of his. Speaking to Fox News’ Griff Jenkins after the rally, Frank Dawson explained that the president was definitely speaking about him during that moment.“He was because he didn’t see me rip the signs away from those three people sitting near us,” Dawson told Jenkins. “They were trying to cause a ruckus and they jumped up and started yelling I don’t care what they were yelling.”Dawson added: “It wasn’t going to happen besides me I’m trying to listen to my president. I think he thought I was part of it, but I wasn’t, I was the good part of it.”After Jenkins brought up that the president ridiculed his weight, the Trump fan brushed it off while heaping praise on Trump.“Everything is good,” Dawson exclaimed. “I love the guy. He is the best thing that ever happened to this country.”The protest at the rally, meanwhile, was by a group of young American Jews from the organization IfThisNow, who held up signs that read “Trump Is BadForTheJews,” ''Jews Against White Nationalism,” “Jews Against Occupation” and “Your Hate Is Killing Us” while chanting “Jews will not be used.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?
