Trump news – live: President launches series of wild attacks on ‘enemy of the people’ US media as impeachment threat grows

By Joe Sommerlad, Clark Mindock (The Independent)

Donald Trump has lashed out at The New York Times, Morning Joe, CNN, Democrats, and the EU on Twitter — as well as the social media platform itself — during a busy morning in which a new state visit to Britain was also confirmed.

As the president continues to gloat over the outcome of the Mueller report, Democrats are busy formulating their response. Mr Trump has claimed the report exonerates him, but Democrats see grounds for potential impeachment, with 2020 hopeful Elizabeth Warren the most vocal among a growing choir calling for that measure: “If any other human being in this country had done what’s documented in the Mueller report, they would be arrested and put in jail.”

President Trump yesterday took part in the traditional White House Easter Egg Roll in characteristic style, bragging to an audience of children about his rebuilding of the US military and stressing the need for his forthcoming border wall.

While Tuesday proved to be a relatively quite day in Washington compared to the events of te week prior, the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case that could have a dramatic impact on American politics in the years to come.

The court heard arguments related to a challenge to the Trump administration’s push to include a question about citizenship on the 2020 census, which could lead around 6.5 million people to avoid the national head count.

The court appeared divided along party lines on Tuesday, which could lead to a 5-4 split decision in favour of the Trump administration on the issue.
