Trump administration tightens citizenship rules for children of U.S. military abroad

These a-holes are just hateful. Under such rules, Sen. McCain would not have been considered a US citizen. He hates our military too! Children born to U.S. citizens stationed abroad as government employees or members of the U.S. military will no longer qualify for automatic American citizenship under a policy change unveiled on Wednesday by the Trump administration.

Trump is once again complaining about coverage on his preferred cable network, Fox News.

….are all in for the Open Border Socialists (or beyond). Fox hires “give Hillary the questions” @donnabrazile, Juan Williams and low ratings Shep Smith. HOPELESS & CLUELESS! They should go all the way LEFT and I will still find a way to Win – That’s what I do, Win. Too Bad!….

….I don’t want to Win for myself, I only want to Win for the people. The New @FoxNews is letting millions of GREAT people down! We have to start looking for a new News Outlet. Fox isn’t working for us anymore!

Jim Mattis, Trump’s former defense secretary, has a new memoir coming out next week in which he details some of his foreign policy differences with the president – most notably on Nato and torture.

Our colleague David Smith reports:

The book, Call Sign Chaos, will be published next week. The Guardian obtained a copy. In it, Mattis avoids direct criticism of his former boss but offers some pointed comments that will probably be seized on by opponents of the president.

The retired US marine corps general recalls being surprised in November 2016 when he was called by the then vice-president-elect, Mike Pence, and asked to meet Trump to discuss the job of defense secretary.

Government to ask Queen to suspend parliament from mid-September – Politics live

Boris is just for Boris – let’s see if British are actually for British democracy…


Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happen

10.22am BST

Scotland’s first minister has tweeted, saying that unless MPs work together to stop Johnson, today could go down as “a dark one indeed for UK democracy”.

So it seems that Boris Johnson may actually be about to shut down Parliament to force through a no deal Brexit. Unless MPs come together to stop him next week, today will go down in history as a dark one indeed for UK democracy.

Spare a thought for SNP planners – the party’s annual conference is traditionally a few weeks later than the UK ones and falls right across October 14th…

Craig Oliver, who was director of communications at No 10 under David Cameron, has tweeted:

I suspect Number 10 believes it has created a win win scenario with this explosive announcement. Yes – and they get Brexit by October 31st; No – and they get to fight a ‘people versus parliament’ general election.
