French charity publishes deepfake of Trump saying 'AIDS is over'

Description:

A deepfake video developed by French charity Solidarité Sida features US President Donald Trump saying ''AIDS is over''. But should fake news be used in this way?…


President Trump's acknowledgment that he would gladly accept campaign assistance from a foreign power seems like an open invitation for another attack in 2020. The news didn't seem to strike some of his Republican colleagues as alarming. In fact, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy defended the president's comments.
Rasmus Jarlov says Trump should have consulted with Denmark officials before announcing he was interested in buying Greenland.
Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, on the feud between her husband George Conway and President Trump.
Six in 10 Americans say President Donald Trump does not deserve to be reelected, according to a new CNN Poll conducted by SSRS, and more now say he's doing a poor job than a good one of keeping important campaign promises.

Overall, the poll paints a picture of a President who has done little to improve negative impressions of him or his work during his time in office. Across several questions asked early in Trump's time in office and asked again now, the poll finds little positive change and deep partisan polarization.

The 60% who say the President does not deserve to be reelected is similar to the 63% who felt that way in November 2017. That outpaces his most recent predecessors at a similar stage in their presidencies. In October 2003, a CNN/Gallup/USA Today poll found that 52% of Americans thought George W. Bush did deserve reelection, and Gallup's polling in 2011 found the share saying Barack Obama did not deserve to be reelected stood in the low 50s.
