Twitter suspended several accounts for promoting statements from former U.S. President Donald Trump's blog this week, and helping to evade the ban on his account.Before the ban, Trump had more than 88 million followers.Twitter booted him from the platform after the deadly siege on the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters in January. On Tuesday a page was added to Trump's website dubbed "From the Desk of Donald J. Trump". There he posts messages that can be shared by his audience to both Twitter and Facebook. A Twitter spokesman said in a statement, "As stated in our ban evasion policy, we'll take enforcement action on accounts whose apparent intent is to replace or promote content affiliated with a suspended account."A Trump representative said they had nothing to do with the suspended accounts. Twitter said Trump's ban is permanent even if he runs for office again. While on Wednesday, Facebook's oversight board upheld Trump's suspension from their platform, but said the company should not have made it indefinite.

China’s exports surged 32.3% over a year ago in April as global consumer demand strengthened, while imports rose 43.1%. Exports to the United States rose 30.8% over a year ago to $42 billion despite a lingering tariff war with Washington, the General Administration of Customs of China reported. China’s global trade surplus narrowed by 5% to $42.8 billion, an indication demand is recovering faster in China than in the rest of the world.
U.S. employers likely hired nearly a million workers in April as they rushed to meet a surge in demand, unleashed by the reopening of the economy amid rapidly improving public health and massive financial help from the government. The Labor Department's closely watched employment report on Friday will be the first to show the impact of the White House's $1.9 trillion COVID-19 pandemic rescue package, which was approved in March. It is likely to show the economy entered the second quarter with even greater momentum, firmly putting it on track this year for its best performance in almost four decades.

Kimmel pokes fun at Jenner’s interview with Sean Hannity During his monologue Thursday, Jimmy Kimmel took a moment to talk about Caitlyn Jenner’s interview the night before with Sean Hannity — and his takeaway is that the California candidate for governor is an “Ignorant a-hole.” Before he got there, Kimmel talked about the interview, “what they called a town hall with Sean Hannity. There was no town, and no hall, but there was Sean Hannity pretending to be interested in Caitlyn’s take on a variety of subjects including her inexplicable affection for Donald Trump.” Then Kimmel rolled a clip in which Jenner talked about how Trump “did some things that I agreed with, some things I didn’t agree with,” and then said she liked that Trump was a “disruptor” who “came in and shook the system up.” Sidebar: One way Trump “shook the system up” was by dramatically escalating bigoted policies aimed at taking away the rights of transgender people. Anyway, back to Kimmel, who said about that “shook the system up” comment, “he shook the system so hard he lost custody of it. He’s… child protective services had to come in and stop him from shaking the system.” Then Kimmel talked about one of the weirder moments during the interview, when Jenner tried to tell a relatable, everyperson story about how bad California is — but ended up just sounding like an out of touch, entitled rich person. She was in her private airplane hanger for the interview with Hannity, and she told Hannity that someone else who also has a private hanger in the same location claims he’s leaving California because he just can’t tolerate seeing homeless people anymore. So to restate: A very, very wealthy person tried to connect with voters by telling the story of another very, very wealthy person who would rather move out of state than do anything to help the homelessness problem. “Ah, homeless people, can’t walk around ‘em, can’t fly over ‘em,” Kimmel joked. “Is it transphobic to call a trans person an ignorant a-hole? Or does calling that trans person an ignorant a-hole even though she happens to be a trans person show that we don’t discriminate against ignorant a-holes… it’s a tough one, I don’t know, I guess we’ll let the internet decide tomorrow.” Watch the whole monologue above. Kimmel’s remarks on Caitlyn Jenner happen around 4 minutes in. Read original story Jimmy Kimmel Calls Out ‘Ignorant A-hole’ Caitlyn Jenner’s Homelessness Comment (Video) At TheWrap
A Hong Kong court on Friday granted emergency bail to former Democratic Party leader Wu Chi-Wai, detained on charges of breaking the city's national security law, so he can attend his father's funeral, the South China Morning Post reported. Authorities said the vote was a "vicious plot" to "overthrow the government", which falls under a national security law that Beijing imposed on the former British colony in July 2020. Most of the 47 have been denied bail.

Well, “good-ish” Elon Musk will make his SNL debut this Saturday, which comes out the day before Mother’s Day, and in a promo clip for the episode he promised to bring his best in honor of his mom. In the promo for the upcoming May 8 episode, Musk and musical guest Miley Cyrus were joined by cast member Cecily Strong. Musk told viewers from behind a bank robber-esque black bandana, “I am a wild card, so there’s no telling what I might do.” Cyrus agreed, and added, “same here. Rules, no thanks.” Then Strong reminded them both that it’s the show’s 2021 Mother’s Day episode and both their moms were going to be in the audience. After that, both Musk and Cyrus quickly changed their tune and Cyrus joked, “forget what I said.” “I will be good-ish,” Musk said before the clip ended. Both Miley and Elon are tight with their moms — Cyrus matriarch Tish Cyrus has managed Miley for 16 years and recently designed Miley’s new 6,800 square-foot home in Southern California. Elon’s mom, Maye Musk, is a fierce supporter of her son’s seemingly never-ending tech ventures and told People Magazine that she knew Elon was a “genius” by the time he’d turned three. While some “SNL” cast members, like Bowen Yang, Aidy Bryant and Chris Redd don’t seem too thrilled about the billionaire hosting this upcoming episode, some fans — and fellow cast member Pete Davidson — are pretty amped to see Musk step into, well, whatever characters he and the “SNL” cast figure out for him. Check out the teaser for Musk’s upcoming “SNL” episode below. ELON MUSK.
