Maple Match

Maple Match is a dating website and iOS app started by Joe Goldman in Austin, Texas.[1] The site first launched in May 2016 after Donald Trump became the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party. The stated goal of the site is to match Americans with Canadian citizens to help the former avoid a Trump presidency.[2] Within a week of the site's launch, about 13,000 people had signed up, a quarter of whom were Canadian, even though the app was unreleased.[2] The company reported that its user base "almost doubled" on the night of November 8 when Trump's victory was announced.[3] Goldman responded to claims that the site was satirical by maintaining that it is completely serious.[4] References Marsh, Calum (10 May 2016).

Obama-Trump voters

Donald Trump and Barack Obama in January 2017 In the United States, Obama-Trump voters (also known as Trump Democrats or Obama Republicans) voted for Democratic Party nominee Barack Obama in the 2008 or 2012 presidential elections (or both), but later voted for Republican Party nominee Donald Trump in 2016. These voters comprise perhaps 9% of Obama voters and 13% of Trump voters. While some analysts consider them to have been decisive in Trump's victory, others have disputed this conclusion. Compared to other voters, Obama-Trump voters tend to have liberal economic views and conservative social views. They expressed skepticism of congressional Republicans and a desire to change the status quo. Approximately 9.4% of Obama voters voted for Trump in 2016. Studies A study by the Democracy Fund Voter Study Group found that 9.2% of Obama voters voted for Trump in 2016.[1] According to the American National Election Study, 13% of Trump voters had voted for Obama in 2012.[2] Some analysts have argued that these vo

Rebuilding America Now

Rebuilding America Now is a political action committee (PAC) created to support Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign. A so-called Super PAC, Rebuilding America Now is permitted to raise and spend unlimited amounts of corporate, union, and individual campaign contributions under the terms of the Citizens United Supreme Court decision. Rebuilding America Now was founded in June 2016 by Paul John Manafort, Jr. and Tom Barrack, a real-estate investor and long-time friend of Trump. Manafort tapped Laurance "Laury" Gay, godfather to one of Manafort's daughters, and Ken McKay for senior roles with the Super PAC upon its founding.[1][2][3] Though Rebuilding America Now is one of several Super PACs founded to support Trump's bid for the presidency,[3] it has been described as the "primary" Super PAC supporting Trump by the New York Times.[4] Vice presidential nominee Mike Pence and Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort have both endorsed the Super PAC.[5] Trump himself had previously denigrated the use of Super P

The Internet Research Agency, based in Saint Petersburg and described as a troll farm, created thousands of social media accounts that purported to be Americans supporting radical political groups, and planned or promoted events in support of Trump and against Clinton; they reached millions of social media users between 2013 and 2017. Fabricated articles and disinformation were spread from Russian government-controlled media, and promoted on social media. Additionally, computer hackers affiliated with the Russian military intelligence service (GRU) infiltrated information systems of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), and C

At the time, President of Mexico Enrique Peña Nieto said that his country would not pay for the wall.[2][3][4] In January 2017, Trump signed Executive Order 13767, which formally directed the U.S. government to begin attempting wall construction along the Mexican border using existing federal funding;[5] actual construction did not begin at this time due to the significant expense and lack of clarity on how it would be funded.

Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference in Helsinki, Finland, July 2018. This article describes the foreign policy positions taken by Donald Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign (announced June 16, 2015). Overview In a New York Times interview in July 2016, Presidential Nominee Trump "repeatedly defined American global interests almost purely in economic terms," with the nation's "roles as a peacekeeper, as a provider of a nuclear deterrent against adversaries like North Korea, as an advocate of human rights and as a guarantor of allies' borders" being "quickly reduced to questions of economic benefit to the United States."[1] A 68-page document likely written by and under the direction of the Trump administration's national security adviser, Lt. Gen. H.R.

The Russia investigation origins counter-narrative or Russia counter-narrative[1] is a right-wing alternative narrative,[2][3] sometimes identified as a conspiracy theory,[4][5][6][7][8] concerning the origins of the FBI investigation and subsequent Special Counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections. Both of those investigations concluded that the Russian government interfered in the election for the purpose of benefiting Donald Trump. [9][10] Trump frequently expressed the concern that those findings called into question the legitimacy of his presidency. He attacked the Russia investigation over 1,100 times by February 2019, claiming that it was fabricated as an excuse for Hillary Clinton losing the Electoral College in 2016, that it was an "illegal hoax", and that the FBI had refused to investigate the "real collusion" between the Democrats and Russia.[11] From the outset, conservatives tried to delegitimize the Mueller investigation.
