International News: World News... The Happenings All Over The World!




1. Donald Trump's political career was birthed of a conspiracy theory: The much-debunked idea that Barack Obama was not born in the United States. Trump, beginning around 2011, seized on the issue -- which had been percolating in the fever swamps on the far right since Obama won -- and used it to cast himself as the lone voice among conservatives willing to stand up to Obama (and political correctness).

A short time later, the official @POTUS account retweeted Trump's tweet to its 19 million followers, making it one of the President's most-shared and most-retweeted posts ever.
Only 6% of Americans believe the overall tone has improved in Washington since Trump was elected, according to the poll, which was conducted before Trump's WWE tweet. Twenty percent of those polled said civility is the same as it was prior to Trump's election.
