Before Trump got out of his vehicle the crowd greeted him with boos and shouting “vote to get him out”, in reference to the next elections on November 3, and “honor his wish”, alluding to the last will of Ginsburg, who asked that the government resulting from the elections be the one to appoint his replacement.

Trump arrived at court around 10:00 am (local time) accompanied by First Lady Melania, both wearing black masks. There he kept a minute of silence and left quickly; a few minutes later she was back at the White House.

This displacement It is unusual for the president, who never participates in the tributes of personalities who are not from his political field. The president announced that he will appoint Ginsburg’s replacement to the high court before the tight November elections, sparking outrage from the Democratic opposition.

I think everything will go very well, that it will go very fast

“I think everything is going to go very well, that it is going to go very fast,” Trump told Fox Radio on Thursday. “We have five women on the list and I like them all”added the president, who already announced that among the finalists is the conservative magistrate Bárbara Lagoa, a Miami judge of Cuban origin.

Until Ginsburg’s death, Conservatives had a majority of five to four in court that decides on issues in the life of Americans, such as the right to bear arms, the right to abortion, but also deals with immigration issues and issues such as access to health.

Amaranth’s pleasant headache

He is not tormented by the decision to come. It is a ‘problem’ that gives him peace of mind, it is a ‘mess’ that all the coaches want to have. After Carmelo Valencia’s scoring exhibition against Independiente del Valle, Luis Amaranto Perea, Junior’s helmsman, will face, with a view to the duel against Envigado (Saturday 6:05 pm, at Parque Estadio Sur), a pleasant dilemma: return the starter to Miguel Ángel Borja, the stellar hiring and top scorer of the team this year with seven annotations (five in the League, one in the Super League and one in the Copa Libertadores) or keep ‘Tutunendo’, the man who conquered a triplet (the first by a footballer in red-and-white history) and made Independiente del Valle a former undefeated.

“There is no one like ‘Tutu'”, sing and publish many excited fans with the three goals of the Chocoano in the 4-1 victory against Independiente del Valle, but Borja has also made merits on the court to return to the eleventh starting player. It is not easy to tell the team’s gunner to stay on the bench without being suspended or injured.. Nor is it easy to do the same with the one who has just inflated the network three times in the Libertadores. And when will Teófilo Gutiérrez return? … Uffff … That is the question.

“They are difficult problems, but good ones. You always want the players to have the highest level, that your decisions basically go through minimal issues of the rival. Luckily Carmelo has done well and in some way helps so that internal competition is generated. In general terms, we have a very good team, very good players. There are a lot of games. It seems to me that in the end everyone is going to play ”, replied Luis Amaranto Perea, in the virtual press conference after the game between Junior and Independiente del Valle, when THE HERALD posed the dilemma.

The Solomonic decision you have at hand is to accommodate both of them, with which he must sacrifice Sherman Cárdenas (with what clarity and creation would be lost) or to one of its extremes. This last option seems unlikely, at the moment, for the style of play that Junior has assumed with periods of high blood pressure and fast transitions from defense to attack by exploiting the speed and skill of the men from the sides like Freddy Hinestroza, Luis ‘Cariaco’ González and Edwuin Cetré.

Unprecedented rift between the United States and Europe after the announcement of sanctions on Iran – Europe – International


The intention of the United States to ending the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal marks an unprecedented rift between Washington and its main European allies, which will last if Donald Trump is re-elected.

(You may be interested in: The power that Europe must assume in the geopolitical game)

What are the causes of the breakup?

The announcement of the United States to reinstate the UN sanctions against Iran he was judged without legal value by European countries, with the support of Beijing, Moscow and Tehran.

Although this is of great depth, already other transatlantic divergences occurred previously, for example during the invasion of Iraq (2003). But in that case, the United States was mainly against France, not the United Kingdom.

It is the first time that the British have opposed the United States so frontally

“It is the first time that the British have opposed the United States so frontally on an issue considered essential to American diplomacy,” says Pascal Boniface, director of the Institute for International and Strategic Relations (IRIS).

(Read here: France opposes the agreement between the European Union and Mercosur)

The United Kingdom remains on its principles “despite increasingly insistent requests from the United States”, and taking into account the increasingly important distance with Europe due to Brexit, he adds.

The position of the United States plunges the UN into an unprecedented legal vacuum, just when Its annual General Assembly begins this Tuesday, which wants to emphasize multilateralism.

How does it affect other countries?

On the Iranian issue, Washington has been facing for more than two years a united front formed by London, Paris and Berlin, who fear for their safety with nuclear proliferation.

This disagreement over Iran, initiated by Trump, is the critical point of a long decline in relations. between the United States and its older European allies. For three years, differences have arisen over other important issues, such as the climate issue, Jerusalem as the capital of Israel or NATO.

And also in negotiations at the UN on less prominent issues. In some cases, Washington even threatened his right to veto or with proposing counter-bills to impose their vision, a practice that until now only the adversaries of the United States used.

For example, in December 2018, Washington was outraged against the United Kingdom because it presented a text on Yemen without focusing on Iran and criticizing Saudi Arabia. In April 2019, the United States modified a German document on sexual violence that alluded too much to international justice.

But, in this context, “the absence of strategic unity among Westerners in the Security Council opens a diplomatic path to Russia and China to advance their interests in New York“said expert Richard Gowan of the Crisis Group last year.

Can elections change course?

For Bertrand Badie, professor at the Institute of Political Studies in Paris, European countries mainly maintain a “front” position on the Iranian issue.

“The priority of all Europeans is, fundamentally, keep the alliance with the United States because they need it, since they are incapable of guaranteeing a European or foreign defense policy “, he estimates.

(You may be interested in: The restrictions imposed in Europe by the second wave of covid-19)

“Everyone says ‘we still have 43 days to endure'”, until the presidential elections in the United States on November 3, he adds. Many hope that a victory by Democrat Joe Biden will bring the United States back into the multinational arena and help regain alliances with Western countries.

If Biden is elected, one of his priorities will be to repair the distance ties

“If Biden is elected, one of his priorities will be to repair the distanced, or damaged, ties between the countries of the European Union and the United States,” predicts Pascal Boniface.

On both sides of the Atlantic, they will try to “stick the pieces together” by reintegrating the United States in certain international agreements, reiterates François Heisbourg, director of the Foundation for Strategic Research (FRS).

But if Donald Trump is re-elected, there is a danger that he will use it to break the Atlantic Alliance. The Iranian case is one of the pretexts that could be used to question the role of the United States in NATO, “he warns.

In statements to ‘The nation’ the soccer player’s lawyer, Mariano Aguilar, explained that the player performed “two real estate investments in Uruguay”: bought a field in José Ignacio together with partners and finished paying for the construction of “a building that the Chilean Embassy has rented today” in Montevideo.

According to data from the Uruguayan Real Property Registry, the building located at 455 Guipúzcoa street is in the name of Tolicon SA. That is, it does not appear now in the name of the footballer. His lawyer said that was the society that “He sold to Javier (Mascherano)” the property.

Fear of family separation returns due to ruling against TPS in the US

TEGUCIGALPA, HONDURAS.- The fear that entire families will be separated by the deportations that the ruling against the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) returned this week to the daily life of Hondurans and Central Americans residing in the United States.

The government of Donald Trump, As of January 4, 2021, he has a free hand to decide on the future of the Tepesians and deportation seems to be his first option.

The measure directly harms thousands of children who were born in that country and who have Honduran, Salvadoran or Haitian parents and who are beneficiaries of TPS. According to data from the Center For American Progress, in North Carolina alone there are about 11,600 minors in this situation. In that state live 6,200 compatriots attached to the TPS.

LEA: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will seek individual options for each Honduran covered by TPS

With the decision of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, Trump can terminate the TPS that protects nearly 400,000 immigrants from El Salvador, Nicaragua, Sudan and Haiti from deportation.

Tepesians will continue fighting

The Tepesian Committee of the Triángulo area, chaired by the Honduran Gregorio Cruz, a Tepesian since 1998, revealed to the site Link Latino NC that “we did not take this decision as a verdict. We will continue fighting in the judicial system, in the streets and in Congress.

“We are hopeful that a change in administration will help make another decision on this situation,” Cruz told Enlace Latino NC.

“We already know the rhetoric of President Trump. So there is faith and hope for change. We call on all Latinos to register, cast their vote and make a difference. ”

The Honduran announced that the “TPS Bus for Freedom and Justice” will begin next week on the west coast, which will travel through several states and cities in the country.

The ruling against TPS comes in the midst of the political campaign leading up to the elections in the United States, and that uncertainty around Hispanics confuses many Democrats in light of Trump’s repeated comments against immigration, among other issues.

The biggest affront to Hispanics, critics say, was his decision to adopt a zero tolerance policy and to separate families on the Mexican border.
