Before his furious messages about James Comey, Donald Trump tweeted about “tremendous pressure building” for the border wall and “an end to crime cradling Sanctuary Cities.” Here’s deputy international editor Adam Withnall to explain what the president is referring to:
 
“Donald Trump has insisted there is “tremendous pressure building, like never before” in support of a ban on so-called sanctuary cities, where police are instructed to focus resources on local crime issues rather than cooperate with attempts to enforce federal immigration law.

“The president tweeted after a federal judge issued a nationwide injunction barring the U.S. Justice Department from giving priority status for multimillion-dollar community policing grants to departments that agree to cooperate with immigration officials.
 

“This is yet another dagger in the heart of the administration’s efforts to use federal funds as a weapon to make local jurisdictions complicit in its civil immigration enforcement policies,” Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer said. Los Angeles was among the sanctuary cities accusing the federal government of trying to unduly punish it.


“Tremendous pressure is building, like never before, for the Border Wall and an end to crime cradling Sanctuary Cities. Started the Wall in San Diego, where the people were pushing really hard to get it. They will soon be protected!”

“Mr Trump visited San Diego at the start of March, inspecting prototypes for his proposed border wall before attending a fundraiser in Los Angeles.”

Following his message of remembrance, the president tweeted about Mueller’s Russia investigation. Here’s international editor Chris Stevenson with the latest on this:
 
“Stories and speculation about Mr Trump looking to be rid of Special Counsel Robert Mueller have abounded in recent weeks – with Mr Trump making clear his distaste for the Russian election meddling probe. The president has repeatedly called the investigation, which involves looking into any possible collusion with the Trump presidential campaign, a “witch hunt”.

“Mr Trump has also expressed clear annoyance at the FBI raid of the office of his personal lawyer Michael Cohen, after an apparent tip handed to New York prosecutors by Mr Mueller’s investigation, with many members of Congress reminding him the wake of that, that it would be a mistake to fire Mr Mueller or his boss at the Justice Department Rod Rosenstein.

“The tweet below, mentioning White House lawyer Ty Cobb, appears to be an attempt to suggest he is not looking to fire Mr Mueller.”

Donald Trump has tweeted a message for Yom HaShoah. Holocaust Memorial Day is recognised by the international community, for example the EU and UN. on 27th January, where as Yom HaShoah is Israel’s day of commemoration. It falls on 27th Nisan, which is the first month of the Hebrew calendar. 
 
You can read the president’s full statement here:
 
“On Yom HaShoah, or Holocaust Remembrance Day, and during this week of remembrance, we reflect on one of the darkest periods in the history of the world and honor the victims of Nazi persecution.  This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, when the imprisoned Polish Jews mounted a courageous and extraordinary act of armed resistance against their Nazi guards.  
 
“The Holocaust, known in Hebrew as “Shoah,” was the culmination of the Nazi regime’s “Final Solution to the Jewish Question,” an attempt to eradicate the Jewish population in Europe.  Although spearheaded by one individual, this undertaking could not have happened without the participation of many others who recruited, persuaded, and coerced in their efforts to incite the worst of human nature and carry out the ugliest of depravity.  The abject brutality of the Nazi regime, coupled with the failure of Western leaders to confront the Nazis early on, created an environment that encouraged and enflamed anti-Semitic sentiment and drove people to engage in depraved, dehumanizing conduct.  
 
“By the end, the Nazis and their conspirators had murdered 6 million men, women, and children, simply because they were Jews.  They also persecuted and murdered millions of other Europeans, including Roma and Sinti Gypsies, persons with mental and physical disabilities, Slavs and other minorities, Christians, Jehovah’s Witnesses, gays, and political dissidents.
 
“Let us continue to come together to remember all the innocent lives lost in the Holocaust, pay tribute to those intrepid individuals who resisted the Nazis in the Warsaw Ghetto, and recall those selfless heroes who risked their lives in order to help or save those of their persecuted neighbors.  Their bravery inspires us to embrace all that is good about hope and resilience; their altruism reminds us of the importance of maintaining peace and unity, and of our civic duty never to remain silent or indifferent in the face of evil.  We have a responsibility to convey the lessons of the Holocaust to future generations, and together as Americans, we have a moral obligation to combat antisemitism, confront hate, and prevent genocide.  We must ensure that the history of the Holocaust remains forever relevant and that no people suffer these tragedies ever again.
 
“Now, therefore, I, Donald J Trump, President of the United States of America, do hereby ask the people of the United States to observe the Days of Remembrance of Victims of the Holocaust, April 12 through April 19, 2018, and the solemn anniversary of the liberation of Nazi death camps, with appropriate study, prayers and commemoration, and to honor the memory of the victims of the Holocaust and Nazi persecution by internalizing the lessons of this atrocity so that it is never repeated. 
 
“In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this eleventh day of April, in the year of our Lord two thousand eighteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-second.”

As the world understandably focuses on Donald Trump’s threatening Syria tweet, he also posted a message about California this morning.
 
He said governor Jerry Brown “is doing the right thing and sending the National Guard to the border.” Here’s international editor Chris Stevenson to explain what the president is talking about:  
 
“President Donald Trump is claiming victory in getting California Governor Jerry Brown to move National Guard members to the Mexico border in his state.
 
“Mr Trump has been pushing for border states to do this, having issued an order for Guards to be sent to the border having seen reports from a ‘migrant caravan’ coming up through Central America and into Mexico. Mr Trump has sought to paint this as a sign of all the “criminals” that are trying to make their way into America, and has tied it to his immigration crackdown. Even with the order, he needs state governors to agree.
 
“The truth as Mr Brown points out in the letter below, is a little different. Mr Brown says he will take the funds being offered and deploy an extra 400 guards to help tackle “transnational gangs, human traffickers and drug smugglers” as he did following requests from George W Bush in 2006 and Barack Obama in 2010.
 

 
“However, as a staunch opponent of Mr Trump’s push for a tougher stance on undocumented immigrants, Mr Brown says that the California National Guard will not be “enforcing federal immigration laws” and claims that immigrant apprehensions on the California border last year were “as low as they’ve been in nearly 50 years”.”
