Just signed one of the most important, and largest, Trade Deals in U.S. and World History. The United States, Mexico and Canada worked so well together in crafting this great document. The terrible NAFTA will soon be gone. The USMCA will be fantastic for all!

….Lightly looked at doing a building somewhere in Russia. Put up zero money, zero guarantees and didn’t do the project. Witch Hunt!

Oh, I get it! I am a very good developer, happily living my life, when I see our Country going in the wrong direction (to put it mildly). Against all odds, I decide to run for President & continue to run my business-very legal & very cool, talked about it on the campaign trail…




2…………> Mayhem In EU: Brussels


The “Yellow vest” movement, the ultra-left crowd protesting the rise in fuel prices has spread to the front yards of EU offices in the Belgian capital Brussels as police arrested 60 “yellow vest” people for rioting and endangering public order. The protesters set two vehicles, including a police car on fire in the downtown, launched stun grenades and damaged some road signs with Brussels Mayor Philippe Close warned of more arrests if the protest continues and Belgian Interior Minister Jan Jambon condemned the “incomprehensible” violence by the protesters.



3…………> Like Father & Son: Investment Fraud


Donald V. Watkins Sr., 70, of Atlanta, Georgia, and Donald V. Watkins Jr., 46, of Birmingham, Alabama, were charged in a 10-count indictment filed in the Northern District of Alabama with seven counts of wire fraud, two counts of bank fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud.

The defendants told the investors that their money would be used for specific purposes related to the international growth of the two companies associated with the defendants. Instead of using the money for those purposes, the defendants redirected the funds for other uses, including the payment of personal tax obligations, personal loan payments, alimony, and clothing, the indictment alleges. For example, the indictment alleged one solicitation in which Donald Watkins Sr. represented that he needed an investor’s funds to pay for investment bankers and lawyers ahead of an anticipated business transaction, when, instead, the funds allegedly went toward the payment of unrelated expenses.

The indictment also alleges that, up until 2016, the defendants sent the investors stakeholder reports and other updates that purported to keep the investors apprised of developments related to the companies involved, but were instead intended to conceal what had happened to the investors’ money. The defendants are also charged with conspiring to obtain loans from Alamerica Bank through an allegedly fraudulent scheme involving the use of a third party to take out the loans on their behalf. The indictment alleges that the defendants reportedly convinced one of their investor victims to apply for over $900,000 in loans under his name, when—as they had planned—the defendants ultimately took and used those funds for their purposes.



4…………> A Deal Or A Rout: G20


“Most observers believe China to be in a slump, whereas the United States is in a powerful, solid position going into this summit,” the President Trump economic adviser Larry Kudlow telling reporters about the chances of making a deal with China on G20 meeting in Buenos Aires, but not every one was so positive on the happy end encounters, with Sen. Graham saying:

“I’m pissed,” — American for angry the way the [Trump] administration has handled the Saudi Arabia event is not acceptable.”

At the G20 in Buenos Aires, the President made it clear he prefers to meet alone with his counterparts, eschewing the idea of the multilateral organization by holding “one-on-ones” with just China, Russia, Japan and the Islamic Merkeldom of Germany as well as host Argentina. But they then added Turkey, South Korea, and India to their list.

The first meeting to be canceled was with Russian President Vladimir Putin, because of the Kerch incident.

A powerful 7.0 magnitude earthquake shook Alaska, forcing people to run from buildings and prompting a tsunami alert for coastal areas of the state. The quake was centered about 7 miles (11km) north of Anchorage, the largest city in the state, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS). A series of aftershocks were recorded following the initial shock, which had a depth of 40.9km, the USGS said. Around 300,000 people live in Anchorage with 100,000 in the surrounding area.
