  • On February 6th, 2017, NBC news revealed that the al Qaeda operative targeted by the disastrous Navy SEAL raid that left one SEAL and an 8-year-old American girl dead is still alive and taunting DT in an audio message. This was the first military operation led by the DT administration and the White House has drawn serious criticism for not collecting enough intel before executing the raid. 
  • On February 6th, 2017, the UK lawmakers stated that DT was not welcome to address the UK Parliament on his upcoming state visit. House of Commons Speaker John Bercow said, “I would not wish to issue an invitation to President Trump to speak. I feel very strongly that our opposition to racism and to sexism and our support for equality before the law and an independent judiciary are hugely important considerations in the House of Commons.” Prime Minister Theresa May extended the invitation to DT after her visit to the US, sparking massive protests across the UK and a petition signed by 1.8 million Brits to keep DT out of their country.
  • On February 6th, 2017, the price of gold shot up in response to DT's extreme proposed financial plans, making currency seem like an unsafe option for investment. 
  • On February 6th, 2017, DT went on a Twitter tantrum (again), this time stating that "Any negative polls are fake new," apparently in response to his disastrous approval rating (he has the highest disapproval rating in the shortest amount of time in the history of polling), and calling out individual news sources CNN, ABC, and NBC, as well as reserving a separate tweet for disparaging his most hated outlet, the New York Times. He also plugged, twice, an extended replay of his heavily criticized interview on Fox News. This pattern of self-aggrandizement and victimization was heavily analyzed by German magazine Der Spiegel yesterday, who compared DT to Roman emperor Nero.
