trump says in his labor day statement fix 2020 first in response to accusations that joe biden stole his election victory

Image
Despite being banned from most social media platforms, former President Donald Trump was still able to get a short and simple Labor Day message across to his supporters, in his latest claim that Joe Biden stole his election victory. Trump transmitted the three-word, all-caps statement on Saturday morning through the mailing list for his 'Save America' Political Action Committee, as first reported by Mediaite. 'September 4, 2021 – Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America,' the message's introduction began. 'FIX 2020 FIRST!' Trump wrote. While the statement didn't clarify what exactly needs to be fixed, the rhetoric seems to fall in line with Trump's accusations that current-President Joe Biden stole the 2020 presidential election from him during his bid for re-election. Saturday's message was captured in a screenshot and tweeted by Right Side Broadcasting Network, a verified account with nearly 600,000 followers

Cops who returned fire after gunshots erupted outside of a high school football game in the suburban Philadelphia area last week likely killed an eight-year-old girl and wounded three others.   Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer released the preliminary findings of the investigation into Fanta Bility's death on Thursday.  Bility's sister, who was cheerleading during the game, was also shot.

britain is facing a chronic shortage of vets as the meat trade expects hundreds of workers to sign off on eu red tape

Britain faces a chronic shortage of vets as experts warn that hundreds more will be needed to sign off meat and fish exports across the Irish Sea. Strict European Union border controls mean supermarkets, food producers and Government agencies will need to find qualified vets to complete pages of documents for goods shipped between Britain, Northern Ireland and the EU. There are growing concerns that gaps, already evident on shelves in Northern Irish branches of Marks & Spencer and Sainsbury’s, will become worse when new rules come into force in less than a month. Most vets allocate less than a day a week from their normal duties to satisfy the new administrative burden The deadline is the latest in a wave of painful border controls to rock the food industry this year Around 75 per cent of all groceries bought in the province are sold by British chains Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s, Co-op, Iceland and Marks & Spencer, which ship the vast majority from distribution centres on the Brit

more than 600000 louisiana residents remain without electricity a week after hurricane ida hit

Entergy President and CEO Phillip May Full restoration of electricity to some of the hardest-hit areas of Louisiana battered to an unprecedented degree by Hurricane Ida could take until the end of the month, the head of Entergy Louisiana warned Saturday. As of Saturday, 97% of damage assessment was complete and power was restored to about only 282,000 customers from the peak of 902,000 who lost power after Ida.  The storm damaged or destroyed more than 22,000 power poles, more than hurricanes Katrina, Zeta and Delta combined, an impact Entergy President and CEO Phillip May called 'staggering.'  More than 5,200 transformers failed and nearly 26,000 spans of wire - the stretch of transmission wires between poles - were down. 'The level of devastation makes it quite difficult or near impossible to get in and fully assess some places,' said May of five southeastern Louisiana parishes facing the longest delays. The company is estimating full power restoration by September 29

Richard E Grant today thanked well-wishers for their support after the death of his wife Joan at the age of 71 after 35 years of marriage - as he said grief had hit him 'like a tsunami'.  The actor, 64, shared a montage of family photos on Twitter with the message: 'Overwhelmed by the messages of love, condolence & support we have received from loved ones & strangers from all over the world & the appreciation from actors Joan taught over the years.  'Grief hits us like tsunamis as we try and put one foot in front of the other without her.'  Joan, a voice coach from Aberdeen, met Grant at the start of his career in 1986 and the pair have been together ever since.

Sonia Appleby  has won £20,000 damages after being shunned when she raised concerns about puberty blockers A whistleblower at England's only NHS gender clinic for children has won £20,000 damages after being shunned when she raised concerns about puberty blockers. Social worker Sonia Appleby's professional reputation was 'damaged' by treatment she received from bosses at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust's Gender Identity Development Service , an employment tribunal found. Employment judge Sarah Goodman said Ms Appleby had been labelled 'hostile' by bosses after warning that staff had serious concerns about the prescription of puberty blockers. Dr Polly Carmichael, director of GIDS, was said to have told her team that Ms Appleby had 'an agenda', and discouraged staff from telling her about any safeguarding concerns. Judge Goodman said such comments made it 'difficult' for Ms Appleby to carry out her duties as the trust's child safeguard

Somewhere within the rambling confines of Barrow Green Court in Surrey, an era is drawing to a close. Mohamed Al Fayed, the 92-year-old owner of the Ritz Hotel in Paris, former owner of Harrods department store and Fulham Football Club, and one of the most colourful figures in modern business history, is near the end of his life. Despite a poverty-stricken childhood in the backstreets of Egyptian city Alexandria, Fayed has amassed a fortune of some £1.3 billion. His children will inherit properties including the 17th Century Barrow Green Court, swanky apartment buildings that overlook Hyde Park, a Scottish castle and apartments in New York. But the days when the ebullient Egyptian whooped it up on yachts and red carpets are long gone. These days, Fayed spends more time in the shadows of the private mausoleum he commissioned at Barrow Green Court.  There he can mourn his late son Dodi, former boyfriend of the late Princess Diana, who died alongside her in a car crash in Paris in 1997.
