Melania Trump: How First Lady shared insight into Barron’s relationship with Donald

The 2015 interview with People magazine was Melania’s first interview since her husband announced he was running to be US President. The Trumps have managed to keep their son mostly out of the limelight, but the future First Lady let slip that Barron likes golf, much like his father. Reflecting on her only child’s numerous interests, she said: “He wants to be a golfer, a businessman, a pilot.”

Melania added: “It’s that age when you introduce him to stuff.”

Meanwhile, the President owns numerous golf courses including one in Scotland he regularly visits.

He has even been criticised for reportedly playing golf a lot during his Presidency – according to CNN, he golfed 92 times in his first year.

As well as this revelation, Melania claimed to be hands-on mother, who helps her son with his homework and takes him to after school activities.

FLOTUS, who was born and grew up in Slovenia, said she is raising Barron to be bilingual and that he regularly talks to his grandmother over the phone in Slovenian.

Melania’s mother Amalija Knauss was a fashion designer and her father Viktor a car dealer.

However, she emphasised that she supports the now-President’s view on foreign languages.

She said: “My opinion is that the more languages you speak the better, but when you come to America, you speak English.”

The successful model first came to the US in 1996 and met the real estate mogul two years later.

The pair married in 2005 and Barron was born the year after.

When it comes to Melania’s relationship with her husband’s four children from previous marriages, she claimed she is their “friend” rather than a maternal figure of any sort.

She told People: “I’m their friend. I’m not their mum. I met them when they were teenagers.

“I went to their high school graduations and college graduations, so we know each other for a long time.”

The  future First Lady insisted she is “not a yes person”, a trait that her husband reportedly likes about her.

She said: “I’m my own person. I’m not a yes person. So I tell it as it is.”

She added: “I tell my opinions and I was always like that. So I think he likes that.”

Mr Trump chimed in to say that he thinks Melania would be “an amazing representative for our country”.

He added that he could see Melania getting involved with issues around women’s health.

The future President added: “She’s an elegant person with a very big heart.

“She’s very calm and confident, very warm and beautiful.”

Melania has remained loyal to her husband’s rhetoric over the past few years and even in 2015 said she agreed with his hardline stance on immigration.

She said: “I went through a whole long process [to become a citizen].

“It didn’t even cross my mind to just stay here. I think people should follow the law.”

When asked about her personal interests, Melania said she enjoys fashion, magazines, tennis and pilates.

She explained: “My mother was a fashion designer, so it was always in my blood.”

Village pub owners in manure row see the funny side by offering it out

‘Free manure!’ Village pub owners who had huge pile of manure dumped outside premises with signs claiming ‘the landlord is f***ing my wife’ see the funny side by offering it out to punters for their roses

  • Dirty protest alleged landlord had been cheating on spouse with another woman
  • Five signs from dung-heap each bore the phrase ‘the landlord is f***ing my wife’
  • Pub responded with sign saying: ‘Free manure donated by generous supplier!’
  • Landlord denies allegations, saying they are a smear campaign and ‘unfounded’ 

A pub has jokingly hit back after having a massive pile of manure covered in foul-mouthed signs dumped outside it as a jilted lover accused its landlord of infidelity.

The dirty protest alleged the Hampshire pub’s landlord and chef, Simon Emberley, had been cheating on his spouse, Joanna, with the wife of the anonymous sender.

Five signs protruding from the dung-heap, which was left outside the award-winning Hawkley Inn, near Liss, each bore the phrase ‘the landlord is f***ing my wife’.

But the pub responded with a chalkboard sign outside which said: ‘Limited offer! Free local horse manure donated by generous supplier! Jo and Simon xx.’ 

The Hawkley Inn near Liss, Hampshire, has responded with a chalkboard sign outside which said: ‘Limited offer! Free local horse manure donated by generous supplier! Jo and Simon xx’

Staff posted a picture of the sign on Facebook, with the caption: ‘Simon and I are happy to share the love bestowed upon us this morning by a kind but sadly anonymous benefactor. 

‘Such a shame we can’t contact you directly to thank you in person! Anyone with roses that need a boost, you know where we are!’

The dirty protest alleged the pub’s landlord and chef, Simon Emberley, had been cheating on his spouse, Joanna (pictured together)

The two-metre wide pile was so large that it caused delays for drivers trying to pass through the centre of the picturesque village, before being hosed away by workmen.

It was discovered early yesterday morning by a baffled Mr Emberley, who said he had no idea who has left it there.

Mr Emberley denied the expletive-riddled allegations, claiming the manure and messages were a smear campaign against him and were ‘unfounded and untrue’.

Speaking from his pub yesterday, he said: ‘All I know is I turned up for work at 7.30 this morning, and there was a big pile of s*** in the road.

‘I don’t know where it’s come from or who has done it, but something like this can turn somebody’s life upside down.

‘It is unfounded and untrue – whoever has done it is trying to ruin our business.’

The huge pile of dung was piled up outside the picturesque pub in the village of Hawkley

The poo is now the talk of the town, with locals speculating over who could have put it there. Mrs Emberley said the dung was ‘in the hands of the police now’.

She added: ‘We have done nothing wrong, it is very unfortunate – a group of bullies who have targeted us for no reason.

‘We’re over it – there are much more important things going on in the world. It’s time to move on and talk about something else.’

The pub responded to the manure by putting up a sign offering it to for other people’s gardens

One resident, Philip Chippindale, said he saw it on his road after a friend called him in ‘fits of laughter’.

Mr Chippindale, 70, said: ‘When I saw it, I thought ‘my God, what’s that doing there?’ It was a trailer load – people had to drive around it.

‘Somebody had already told me about it on the phone – he was in fits of laughter about it. It’s a mystery how it got there.’

Another resident on the quiet country road said his brother heard a vehicle pull up outside the pub at around midnight last night.

The pub is described as a ‘jewel’ online, located in an area of outstanding natural beauty 

Police have now launched an investigation into the ‘malicious communications’ written onto the five signs stuck into the heap.

The Hawkley Inn has previously been recognised by travel sites such as Tripadvisor and Trivago for its excellent standards of food and service.

The pub is described as a ‘jewel’ on its website, located in an area of outstanding natural beauty that attracts visitors to the ‘beautiful views’ of the South Downs National Park.

Boxing legend Anthony Joshua watches tourist pop out his glass eye

EXCLUSIVE: It’s a knockout! Boxing legend Anthony Joshua breaks into hysterics as he watches tourist pop out his glass eye

  •  Tourist Daniel Regan, 45, bumped into the heavyweight boxer on the beach 
  • Mr Regan used to want to be a boxer but was unable to due to his glass eye
  • After the two men spoke, Mr Regan removed his false eye as a party trick
  • The former champion boxer was astounded and burst out laughing 

Ring king Anthony Joshua burst out laughing after a British holidaymaker showed him his party trick on the beach, which involved removing his false eyeball.

Tourist Daniel Regan, 45, bumped into the heavyweight boxer on the beach while he was with his family in Marbella, Spain, on Thursday.

The pair got chatting and Mr Regan told the heavyweight that he loved boxing but he had never fought because he lost his eye.

He then offered to show him how he could pop his glass eyeball out.

In a video of the encounter, former champ Joshua, who lost his belts in a shock defeat to Andy Ruiz Jnr in June, can be seen wincing and smiling as he looks on.

The boxer, wearing black swimming shorts, then bursts into hysterics as prankster Mr Regan holds up his false right eye at El Alcha beach club in San Pedro.

Married father-of-four Mr Regan said: ‘We saw Anthony and his cousin arrive at the club late on in the afternoon.

‘He walked through the pool area and was saying hi to a few folks and staff.

‘He was very friendly and he proceeded to the beach where he enjoyed some jet-skiiing with his cousin.

‘A few of the kids from the group watched, including my niece and friends. My young daughter was also with them.

‘I walked down to check everything was OK, and Anthony had just allowed them to have some pictures.

‘I walked over with my daughter and niece and thanked him for the pictures and had a general conversation about his holiday and briefly spoke to his cousin.

‘They were very friendly and we got chatting about boxing and how I love boxing but could never fight due to losing my eye.

‘I said to my daughter and niece “Shall we show him my eye trick”?

‘My 12-year old-niece filmed it. My daughter in my arms has seen me do this from birth, so she is very used to seeing me in the bathroom cleaning it, so I must stress she’s OK with it.’

Business consultant Mr Regan, of Buckhurst Hill, Essex was born blind in one eye and had surgery as a tot.

However, it had to be removed when 15 years ago after he got attacked by three men who mistook him for his twin brother when he was 19.

Daniel suffered a detached retina and was taken to the Moorfields Eye Hospital in East London but his eye had to be removed.

‘Anthony asked me what happened to my eye,’ he added. ‘He was shocked but interested in the story. I just did it to show that eyes are precious and to be careful.

‘He appreciated the story and openness. We continued to chat for a bit and went our separate ways. Everything about him was pleasant, his cousin too.’

Travellers invade stockbroker belt

Travellers invade stockbroker belt and dump nine caravans on village green near £50million home of billionaire property tycoon Christian Candy

  • Travellers have pitched up on the village green in Englefield Green, Surrey 
  • Englefield Green common is yards away from Billionaire Christian Candy’s home
  • Residents in the well-heeled enclave also include Elton John and Prince Andrew 

Travellers set up camp just yards away from property tycoon Christian Candy’s £50million home. 

The group pitched up with nine caravans, a brand new Range Rover and a Volkswagen Touareg – worth around £49,000 – less than one mile from the billionaire’s home in Surrey. 

Other residents in the well-heeled enclave situated near Windsor Great Park include Elton John and David Furnish. 

Owned by the Queen, the green is close to superstar John’s 37-acre estate, and Prince Andrew’s country home, the Royal Lodge. 

Travellers appeared on the village green in Englefield Green, Surrey next to the children’s playing area

The group pitched up with nine caravans, a brand new Range Rover and a Volkswagen Touareg

The travellers parked up just a stone’s throw from Christian Candy’s sprawling estate in Surrey

The area, near the upmarket village of Runnymede, is popular with families who take their children to the park in the summer holidays 

The area, near the upmarket village of Runnymede, is popular with families who take their children to the park in the summer holidays.

The group of travellers first made their way to Chertsey Recreation Ground, Guildford Road on August 12 and breached a Criminal Justice and Public Order 1994 served by the council.

They were served with a court summons and left on August 16 but moved to the green.  

The travellers appeared on the village green in Englefield Green beside a children’s playing area on Saturday, before being swiftly moved on by the council the following day. 

Mr Candy and his wife – former It Girl Emily Crompton – live with their four children in the nearby Surrey manor house. 

They bought it for £30million in 2015 and over the past four years, they have spent a further £20 million buying up four neighbouring properties.

Runnymede Council served a notice to leave on Sunday and the travellers moved on 

Christian and Emily haven’t quite managed to buy up the entire neighbourhood, with their estate surrounding a waterworks site and a £2 million cottage owned by a couple who are staying put amid the huge expansion

The Candy brothers, from a middle-class family in Epsom, Surrey, launched their business in 1995 with the renovation of a one-bedroom flat in Earl’s Court, London, which they bought with the help of a loan from their grandmother. They are pictured together in 2011

THE HISTORY OF PARKWOOD ESTATE

Parkwood Estate first came into prominence at the height of the Victorian era when a late 19th Century mansion was built on the land.

For most of its life, the estate was owned by Australian entrepreneur Clive Baillieu, also known as the First Baron Ballieu of Sefton.

Baillieu, who worked for Dunlop Tyres, would host grand parties for famous British car firms such as Rolls Royce, Bentley and Jaguar. The cars would be raced at high speed along the drives of the estate.

The estate then became the Rank Hovis Conference and Training Centre.

After Rank Hovis left, the building became derelict and over the course of many years fell into a state of complete disrepair, resulting in Runnymede Council providing planning permission for it to be demolished.

In February, Mr Candy, 45, paid £9 million for the mansion next door – only to flatten it and turn the land into a sweeping, tree-lined driveway, which is being built.

Planning documents reveal he also demolished two mock-Tudor mansions and replaced them with palatial red-brick super-homes – complete with swimming pool, underground gym and car park – that a source said serve as guest houses for visiting friends and family.

Then there is a swanky £1 million pad for servants and staff, a flood-lit tennis court, a two-storey treehouse for the children to play in, and artwork dotted about the sprawling grounds.

A group of travellers appeared on the same site last year and were evicted from near Elton John’s home, only to relocate a mile away on the historic site where Magna Carta was signed in 1215.  

Runnymede Council served a notice to leave on Sunday. 

The council said: ‘The traveller group left Englefield Green on Sunday afternoon, and the Council has not received reports of it relocating elsewhere in the borough. Our staff will be cleaning and securing the area.’

Greece says has had no request from Iranian oil tanker to dock

ATHENS (Reuters) – Greece said on Tuesday it had not had a request for an oil tanker at the center of a row between Iran and the U.S. to dock at one of its ports, as Washington warned Greece against helping the vessel.

The Adrian Darya 1 — formerly the Grace 1 — left Gibraltar on Aug 18. Ship-tracking data on Tuesday showed the vessel was heading towards the Greek port of Kalamata on the southern coast of the Peloponnese and was scheduled to arrive on Aug. 26.

“The vessel is cruising at low speed and there is still no formal announcement that it will arrive at Kalamata. The Merchant Marine Ministry is monitoring the matter along with Greece’s Foreign Ministry,” a shipping ministry spokesman said.

The ship was released from detention off Gibraltar after a five-week standoff over whether it was carrying Iranian oil to Syria in violation of European Union sanctions.

Soon after the detention order was lifted, a U.S. federal court ordered the seizure of the vessel on different grounds, but that petition was rejected by Gibraltar.

Tehran said any U.S. move to seize the vessel again would have “heavy consequences”.

Earlier, the United States said it had conveyed its “strong position” to the Greek government over the tanker, which is carrying about 2 million barrels of oil.

The issue will be a major foreign policy test for Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, a pro-western conservative elected in July.

Any efforts to assist the tanker could be construed as providing material support to a U.S.-designated foreign terrorist organization, which has immigration and potential criminal consequences, a U.S. State Department official said.

A Greek diplomatic source cited by the state Athens News Agency said the country was in communication with the United States on the matter, but did not say what Greece would do.

“(The U.S.) position on the specific issue is known and has been communicated not only to Greece but other states and ports in the Mediterranean.”

It is standard practice for a vessel to give notice 48 hours before docking at a port, Greek officials said.

It was unclear where the ship might head if Greece refused it permission to dock. Cyprus, further east, has bitter experience from seizing Iranian products destined for Syria; munitions it confiscated exploded in 2011, causing the island’s worst peace-time disaster.

Washington wants the tanker detained on the grounds that it had links to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, which it has designated a terrorist organization.

European Union nations ban oil sales to Syria and the United States has sanctions on Iranian oil sales.

X-ray of a zombie knife deliberately stabbed into a victim’s BUTTOCKS

Shocking X-ray of a zombie knife deliberately stabbed into a victim’s BUTTOCKS by a jealous love rival’s friend in vicious ‘bagging’ attack reveals depths of Wild West Britain’s blade epidemic

  • Aaron Toward-Parker, 18,  plunged the zombie knife into the victim’s buttocks
  • The menacing serrated blade lodged so deeply it had to be surgically removed
  • Wiltshire Police released the image to warn about knife crimes in the area 

This shocking x-ray shows a zombie knife embedded into a victim’s buttocks, in another chilling example of Wild West Britain’s knife epidemic. 

The menacing serrated blade was lodged so deeply it had to be surgically removed, after the attack by Aaron Toward-Parker in Covingham, Wiltshire, in January.

Jack Parfitt and accomplice Toward-Parker took part in the vicious assault, against a  supposed love rival of Parfitt’s.

Parfitt was believed to be upset a colleague of his pregnant girlfriend was flirting with her, so arranged to meet up with him at a local park.

After seeing his target Parfitt shot at him with a BB gun, then asked Toward-Parker to pull out his knife as reported by The Swindon Advertiser.

A zombie knife deeply embedded within the victim’s back in a process known as ‘bagging’, where gang members can target the lower body so the victim has to wear a colostomy bag

Parfitt is thought to have told Toward-Parker to ‘back out the shank.’

Toward-Parker told his victim – who cannot be named because he is under 18 – ‘Don’t think I won’t bore you out with the knife’, before plunging it into his buttocks. 

The lower body can be target in knife attacks in a process that is known as ‘bagging.’ 

The injured person will often have to wear a colostomy bag for the rest of their life, thought to be the ultimate humiliation.

The image was released by Wiltshire Police amid a warning from police chiefs, after a series of violent cases involving knives in the area.

A judge has put Parfitt – 17 at the time of the attack – on a youth rehabilitation order as he has served eight months inside on remand.

Toward-Parker, had denied wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, saying the blade went in by accident. A jury last week took an hour to find him guilty.

He has been remanded in custody for reports to be prepared and will be sentenced in October.

Sonja Leith, head of crime prevention at Wiltshire Police, said: ‘We are carrying out a wide range of proactive work and activities aimed at highlighting the impact that knife crime has on our communities’

‘Although these types of incidents are rare, it is still incredibly concerning when we have cases where young people are carrying weapons and then using them to assault others.

‘However, it is important to stress that the vast majority of young people do not carry knives and those who do have a much higher likelihood of becoming a victim of knife crime themselves.

‘We would hate to think that young people were arming themselves with the misguided view that this makes them safer, when in fact the very opposite is true.’

Evelyn Hernandez: Woman who gave birth to baby in toilet cleared of murder in El Salvador

A 21-year-old woman in El Salvador who says she was raped and unwittingly gave birth to a stillborn son in a toilet has been cleared of murder during a retrial.

Evelyn Hernandez had always maintained she was innocent and did not know she was pregnant.

She was a teenager when she went to an outhouse in April 2016 to use the toilet after having stomach pains and her mother found her passed out.

A 32-week fetus was later found in the septic tank and Ms Hernandez was arrested – but both women said they did not know she had given birth.

Forensic experts were unable to determine whether the child died during birth or in the septic tank.

Ms Hernandez was previously convicted of intentionally inducing an abortion – which is illegal in the Central American country.

She had already served three years of a 30-year prison sentence which was overturned by the supreme court in February and a new trial was ordered.

Prosecutors argued during the retrial in Ciudad Delgado that Ms Hernandez had failed to protect her fetus and asked for a 40-year sentence.

But she was acquitted by a judge on Monday, with her lawyer Bertha Maria Deleon saying: “He has said that there was no way to prove a crime and for that reason he absolved her.”

“We believe the judge has been very fair in his ruling,” she added.

“Thank God, justice was done,” Ms Hernandez said afterwards. “There are many women who are still locked up and I call for them to be freed soon too.”

El Salvador, which has a population of just over six million, is a deeply religious country with 80% of the population identifying as Catholic or evangelical Christian.

Each year an estimated 25,000 women fall pregnant after being raped.

Those convicted of having abortions face prison sentences of between two to eight years.

Women who turn up at public hospitals following a miscarriage are sometimes accused of having killed the fetus and charged with aggravated homicide, which carries a sentence of 30 to 40 years.

Recent polls have shown support for more lenient abortion laws, though many in the country believe rape victims should be made to carry pregnancies to term.

President Nayib Bukele, who took office earlier this year, has pledged a softer approach to abortion and has said he favours legal terminations in cases where the life of the mother is at risk.

Erika Guevara-Rosas, Americas director at Amnesty International, said it was time El Salvador stopped “criminalising women once and for all by immediately revoking the nation’s draconian anti-abortion laws”.

“This is a resounding victory for the rights of women in El Salvador. It reaffirms that no woman should be wrongly accused of homicide for the simple fact of suffering an obstetric emergency,” she added.

Lightning strike caused power cuts in Britain: grid operator

LONDON (Reuters) – A blackout in Britain which left one million homes without power on Aug. 9 was the result of a lightning strike, the grid operator said in a preliminary report on Tuesday.

Regulator Ofgem commissioned the report into the causes of the outages from National Grid and said it would open its own investigation to establish whether any of the grid and network operators or generators breached their licence conditions.

“Having now received National Grid’s interim report, we believe there are still areas where we need to use our statutory powers to investigate these outages,” said Jonathan Brearley, Ofgem’s executive director of systems and networks.

“This will ensure the industry learns the relevant lessons and to clearly establish whether any firm breached their obligations to deliver secure power supplies to consumers,” he added.

Ofgem’s powers under the Electricity Act, which it will use to conduct the investigation, allow it to impose penalties up to a maximum of 10% of the regulated companies UK turnover.

An hour-long outage on the evening of Aug. 9 left one million homes without power while two of London’s busiest train stations closed at rush-hour because of overcrowding as services were canceled or delayed.

National Grid said the power cuts were the result of a rare and unusual issue that led to the almost simultaneous loss of output from two generators – Orsted’s Hornsea off-shore windfarm and RWE’s Little Barford gas-fired power plant.

In its preliminary report, National Grid said there was a lightning strike on a transmission line at 1652 local time, which returned to normal operation after around 20 seconds.

Around 500 megawatts of generation capacity was also disconnected – all of which is normal for such events.

However, immediately after the lightning strike and within seconds of each other, Hornsea and Little Barford reduced supply to the grid, disconnecting 1,378 MW of generation.

“As generation would not be expected to trip off or de-load in response to a lightning strike, this appears to represent an extremely rare and unexpected event,” National Grid said.

“This unexpected loss of generation meant that the frequency fell very quickly and went outside the normal range of 50.5Hz – 49.5Hz,” it added.

Back-up power and other tools were used but the size of the generation loss meant the frequency fell to 48.8Hz which is a level at which secondary backup systems were required to disconnect some demand to ensure the safety of the network.

A final report is due to Ofgem by Sept. 6. Separately, an emergency committee will also investigate the incident, the government said last week.
