Trump's presidency is at its absolute lowest today

Trump’s truly deaf response to George Floyd’s death while in police custody in Minneapolis – especially the photo-op Trump holding a Bible outside the church of St. John in Washington – has been widely criticized, including by many former high-ranking White House officials. “Donald Trump is the first president of my life who has not tried to unite the American people – not even pretending to try,” said former Defense Secretary James Mattis earlier this month. “Instead he tried to divide us.”
Another former Trump administration official, national security adviser John Bolton, came out with his time memoir at the White House suggesting, among other things, that Trump sought help from the Chinese president in the 2020 re-election and appeared to be approved of the use of concentration camps by China. Bolton, in an interview with ABC News, said that Trump was not “suitable for the position” and did not have “competence to carry out the work.”
This series of body blows has ruined Trump’s chances of winning his second term. His the approval rating collapses over the past month in the Gallup poll. CNN’s latest national poll shows Trump trailing former Vice-President Joe Biden with 14 points. The state-swing poll shows the same gap widening between Biden and Trump.

Add it all and you get this: In the roller-coaster presidency, this is the lowest Trump ever.

And that even takes into account the impeachment! Why? Unlike his impeachment by the House of Representatives earlier this year, Trump’s actions over the past month (or more) have caused depreciation in his support rather than the effect of a rally between his headquarters.

It is too soon to declare Trump’s presidency over – there are still 138 days before the November election – but there is no question that he now faces a longer chance than before in his bid to win a second term.

As he often did when dealing with facts he didn’t like, Trump turned to lucrative outlets – and to Twitter – to try to create his own reality.

“If you look at the poll, we are far ahead of Joe who is sleepy in terms of enthusiasm,” Trump told Fox News Sean Hannity in a telephone interview Wednesday night. “Actually, we have enthusiasm that they have never seen before. And Joe has the lowest enthusiasm, I heard, recorded.” (Um, no.)
Regarding coronavirus, Trump said: “I don’t even like to talk about it, because it fades. It will fade.” (This week 10 countries reported the most number of corona virus cases since the pandemic began.)
After the Supreme Court’s DACA ruling on Thursday, Trump tweeted this:

“This terrible & politically charged decision issued by the Supreme Court is a firearm in the face of people who are proud to call themselves Republicans or Conservatives. We need more Judges or we will lose our 2nd. Amendments & others. Vote Trump 2020!”

He then added it in Next tweet: “Do you have the impression that the Supreme Court does not like me?” (Trump has appointed two Judges – Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Chief Justice John Roberts and Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito were also appointed by the Republican president.)

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal released Thursday afternoon, Trump seemed to take credit for drawing attention to Juneteenth, a memorial day to commemorate the official end of slavery in the United States.

“I did something good: I made Juneteenth very famous,” Trump said. “Actually this is an important event, an important time. But no one has ever heard of it.” (Forty-seven states and the District of Columbia celebrate Juneteenth as a holiday.)

However, Trump’s retreat to alternative realities will not change the actual reality. No matter how many tweets he sent or how many adored fans he brought to the indoor arena in Tulsa on Saturday, the fact is this: Trump is not only confronted with the worst political views of his presidency but also faces signs of rebellion from within his own party and even among those he had relied on as trusted advisers.

Trump likes to insist that he does his best when all the turmoil around him and when people count them. Now is his chance to prove it – because digging a hole he made for himself will be a big task.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
