Now, Trump returns home to deepening scandals related to his aidesties to Russia, having shown his ability to represent the U.S. on the world stage in true Trump fashion. Here are POLITICO’S five takeaways after traveling with the president through five stops: Trump prefers one-on-one meetings to big multilateral summits Trump seemed to enjoy the first leg of his trip, with visits to Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the Vatican. His time in Saudi Arabia was dominated by a celebration in a gilded palace where Trump mingled among royalty. Along with the dealmaking in Saudi, the first half of the tour was dominated by talk about security and terrorism, both favorite Trump topics. But in Brussels and Sicily, Trump found counterparts who were largely unified against him—and decided not to them what they wanted, whether it was a public commitment to NATO’s mutual defense clause or assent to staying in the Paris climate deal.

In fact, he showed up for the audience in the Focus and it was parked in the courtyard just a few metres away from The Beast, as it is called, the enormous armoured car that Trump travels in. In contrast with Trump's love of gilded luxury, could not be starker, could it? They are polar opposites in terms of personal style

come out of this is that we know, this is true with Tony Blair and probably with David Cameron, he had a very sort of gilded circle, it does seem that prime ministers of all parties are to you eager to just listen to a very few voices and they tend to govern much better when they listen to a wider Cabinet and consult.

A young and adored celebrity supermodel breaks free of her gilded cage (and wig) to unite a diverse but misfit group of creative souls whose intrinsic love for humanity is enough to transform an urban, socio-political clash into a moment of beautiful peace and understanding.

Those who expected Donald Trump to fly into Riyadh and insult his Saudi hosts with the kinds of broadsides he delivered on the campaign trail against Islam and Muslims neednt have worried. The president who once accused Saudi Arabia of complicity in the 9/11 attacks praised its “magnificent” and “sacred land.” He looked comfortable trading pleasantries and sipping coffee with King Salman, the aging scion of the country’s founding ruler, King Abdulaziz Ibn Saud. He soaked up the gaudy chandeliers, the gilded wall trimmings. Trump even bobbed up and down during the ardah , the traditional sword dance that desert tribes once performed before they went into battle. The images on TV and on Twitter looked like a Michael Moore fever dream -- and Democrats couldnt stop harping on the “curtsyTrump made as he accepted an award from the Saudi king, just as presidents Obama and Bush did before him.

Is there anything The Kush can’t do? John Iadarola, Jayar Jackson, and Jimmy Dore, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://www.tytnetwork.com/join "On the afternoon of May 1, President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, welcomed a high-level delegation of Saudis to a gilded reception room next door to the White House and delivered a brisk pep talk: “Let’s get this done today.” Mr. Kushner was referring to a $100 billion-plus arms deal that the administration hoped to seal with Saudi Arabia in time to announce it during Mr. Trump’s visit to the kingdom this weekend. The two sides discussed a shopping list that included planes, ships and precision-guided bombs. Then an American official raised the idea of the Saudisbuying a sophisticated radar system designed to shoot down ballistic missiles.

But Bush warned that Trump’s tweetstorms give ‘our enemies all sorts of nuances and insights’ into the mind of the commander in chief.” http://cnn.it/2rC4Zd6 FLOTUS WATCH -- “Melania scours media to protect Trump,” by Tara Palmeri: “Melania Trump’s spent her first few months as first lady in New York, only rarely appearing in Washington or speaking at events. Yet friends and aides say she’s keeping a close watch from her gilded apartment in Trump Tower on how her husband is portrayed in the press—and that she’s growing increasingly worried about the anonymous sniping from West Wing staff. “Like President Donald Trump, these people said, Melania Trump is an avid consumer of cable news, and often tracks the news of the day and will alert her husband to stories she thinks make him look bad. She has raised concerns that some on his communications and press team arent doing enough to defend him, according to aides and sources close to the president.

The decision to deny Maria Sharapova a wildcard is a bold statement by the new FTF president and one that has embarrassed the Russian all over again Maria Sharapova has had to fight for virtually every point in her tennis career, every break in her curiously combative life, whatever the misguided perception of the Russian as a bird in a gilded cage. Nothing changed for her on Tuesday night. With the unexpected weight of moral probity falling heavily on her neck, the former world No1 was denied a wildcard of any kind – qualifying tournament or main draw – into the French Open at the end of the month. If she is to contest the title she won in 2012 and 2014 , she will have to get there by right. It is not beyond her, although it is looking less likely by the day. Continue reading...

I Dreamed I Could Waltz Light is made of three handmade porcelain shades that hang from two brass hoops, which form an alluring composition. The shades are textured and detailed with brass gilding to match the hardware. The circular D25 Sconce is made of solid maple that's outfitted with two angled lines and a band that hides the light. All Together Now Side Table/Stool pulls double duty as either a table or stool. Its geometric top and bottom surfaces are cut so that they can be grouped together to form a larger table. And lastly, the Heron's River Mirror has a hexagonal, oil-finished walnut frame with a gilded interior rim that draws the eye in, much like looking through a window. Photos by Doug Holt.

Historical documents about the ‘gilded cityoffer a visionary merging of myths and facts By June 1853, Heinrich Barth was three years into his monumental, five-year expedition to central Africa. He had crossed the Sahara, charted Lake Chad, survived numerous bouts of malaria and lost his two travelling companions to disease, yet he still had the appetite for a major overland journey, to Timbuktu. Heading west from Sokoto in the rainy season, through land “never trodden by European foot”, he stopped to take shelter in Gando. There, he was shown a manuscript, a chronicle of the region that would revolutionise European thinking about west Africa’s history. The document is known as the Tarikh al-sudan , the “chronicle of the Sudan”, and it was written in the 17th century by the Timbuktu scholar Abd al-Rahman al-Sadi. It runs to 38 chapters, some of which are based on earlier histories, some on the author’s own observations and interviews.
