Today Donald Trump did something that no president has done before. (No surprise there.) He was presented with two deals. One Democrat, one Republican, and he chose Democrat.

Today Irish budget airline Ryanair has announced that it will be cutting the amount and size of carry-on luggage on their flights.

In the United States there is the liar in chief. Donald Trump. A man who spins such a terrible web of lies that they can be disproved the second he has finished speaking.
