WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday he would impose an additional 10% tariff on $300 billion worth of Chinese imports starting Sept. 1, as talks aimed at easting tensions between the world’s two largest economies continue. “Trade talks are continuing, and during the talks the U.S. will start, on September 1st, putting a small additional Tariff of 10% on the remaining 300 Billion Dollars of goods and products coming from China into our Country.

I felt compelled to contribute my own Pride tweet though, so I dug back in the archives of my camera roll for an almost year-old photo and wrote up an alliterative expression of some of the aspects of my identity of which I am proud. I didn’t think much of it – after all, this wasn’t the first time I’d shared this exact photo on social media. For whatever reason, however, this tweet launched me into 15 minutes of...

Say what you will about out presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg (and everyone has!), but one Twitter user has boiled down one major inconsistency between Mayor Pete’s gay supporters and the straight ones. While Buttigieg may have come out relatively late, some of us have been around a wee bit longer and know how youth-obsessed we can be. And how frequently younger guys have a thing for older men – “daddies.” (Older being relative sometimes, since actual age is frequently unimportant.) Compared...

A’keria C. Davenport has been channelling the essence of Buffy the Vampire Slayer since her stint on the 11th season of RuPaul’s Drag Race earlier this year because honey, she’s been slaying the industry left right and mothertucking centre. The Dallas-born performer – who placed 3rd/4th on the series – has starred in music videos for Lizzo’s funk-pop anthem Juice and You Need to Calm Down by Taylor Swift, the latter of which just received seven nominations at the 2019...

Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren on Wednesday called desperate migrants who travel 2,000 miles with their children to seek asylum in the United States, “shi-ty” parents. “If you traipse your kid 2,000 miles in dangerous conditions you’re not only a criminal, you’re a sh–ty parent,” Lahren, who is also a Fox News contributor, tweeted on Tuesday evening. Lahren shared the remark half-an-hour into the first night of the second round of the 2020 presidential debates in Detroit. The remark was immediately denounced...

A ruling by Switzerland’s highest court means Caster Semenya of South Africa is barred from competing in her signature event, the 800m, later this summer at the 2019 World Championships. The Swiss Supreme Court reversed its temporary suspension of a new policy by the International Association of Athletics Federations that required Semenya to undergo hormone treatment for six months prior to any event, to lower her natural level of testosterone. The South African world champion sprinter has dominated in...

Chase Strangio, a lawyer with the American Civil Liberties Union, tweeted an urgent message to the LGBT community over the weekend. “If you don’t know what is happening on October 8th I urge you to find out,” Strangio posted on Sunday. “It will be one of the biggest days in LGBTQ legal history and we have a lot to do to prepare. Our fight is at SCOTUS. Our lives on the line. Don’t look away,” he added. The tweet is referring to...

BALTIMORE/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump, again stoking racial divisions, on Monday renewed his attacks on a black U.S. congressman from Baltimore and slammed black civil rights activist Reverend Al Sharpton, drawing a rebuke from Maryland’s Republican governor and the black former Republican Party national chairman. The Republican president, in a series of Twitter posts, directly tied his criticism of Representative Elijah Cummings and Sharpton as well as his ongoing attacks on four racial and ethnic minority Democratic congresswomen...

Paras Griffin / Getty Images “There’s been plenty of speculation about this hot young r&b star’s sexuality, but most of it has been drowned out by the adoration by fans and famous alike,” wrote the gossip site Bossip in 2012. “After keeping folks guessing in 2011, this soul singer will answer any questions about which team he’s swinging for with his upcoming musical release.”This was a...

The actor’s Twitter account shared a string of vile homophobic, racist, anti-Semitic and ableist messages shortly after midnight on Sunday 28 July, including one that asked followers to “kill a handicap f****t” for money. “Rumour has it that handicap f****ts are behind 9/11. Bush didn’t do 9/11, it was all planned by a handicap f****t that’s using text to speech,” read one of the now-deleted tweets. Another read: “Nazi Germany did nothing wrong and that’s on god n***a.” Fortunately, the tweets were...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Monday renewed his attacks on a prominent black U.S. lawmaker from Baltimore and slammed black civil rights activist Reverend Al Sharpton, further fueling racial tensions as he linked his attacks to his 2020 re-election bid. Trump’s weekend remarks disparaging U.S. Representative Elijah Cummings, a House of Representatives Democrat and a longtime civil rights champion, drew charges of racism from Democrats, an accusation Trump denied. The Republican president earlier in July attacked four...

South Florida Sun-Sentinel readers got quite an eyeful early Sunday morning when the paper tweeted out an article about a 100-year-old house that included a photo of a speedo-clad hunk. The photo of the shirtless model was mistakenly included in a tweet promoting an article, titled: “How a nearly 100-year-old house will be saved by moving it across town,” which also included a link to the wrong article. In response to the mistake, the Sun-Sentinel tweeted: “Well, clearly this wasn’t how...
