That Trump wants to pull the US out of yet another long-standing international agreement is hardly news anymore. What makes this item Wow-I Can't-Believe-It worthy is that on the face of it Trump has a justified grievance about China's status as a developing nation:

Wisconsin girl missing 4 days: What we know about Jayme Closs' disappearance and her parents' death

There are probably leads that they're not releasing to the public as it's an open case, but my money is on Jayme Teardrop tbh.

China is planning to launch its own “artificial moon” by the year 2020, it has been reported.

The city of Chengdu has unveiled plans to replace the city’s streetlights with a satellite that will boost the glow of the real moon.

The artificial moon will be able to light an area with a diameter of 10 to 80 kilometres.

Wu Chunfeng, chairman of Chengdu aerospace science and technology microelectronics system research institute, announced the news and said that the artificial moon would be eight times brighter than the real moon, according to the People’s Daily.

He added that the testing of the illumination started years ago and is now ready.

The manmade moon will have a coating that can reflect light from the sun with solar panel-like wings.

The angles of these wings can then be adjusted to allow the light to focus on a precise location, Asia Times reported.

The exact details of the spacecraft, the launch date and how the artificial moon would be maintained were not revealed.

Officials from the city of Chengdu said they were hoping to save money on street lighting and also increase tourism.

If this was to get to the Supreme Court, want to guess which side Cavanaugh would vote on?

It's hard to sound more Irish than a name like "Robert Francis O'Rourke" LOL. So he changes it to "Beto" to pander to the Mexicans. Trying to make a guy with the last name "Cruz" look like a house negro.

Bruh he ain't a house negro. He killed all his fellow slaves and built his own plantation with their bones.
