The folk behind Cards Against Humanity are so much more than a foul-mouthed, albeit hilarious, party game creators. 

Never one to shy away form its political views, the company often uses publicity stunts to highlight a range of societal issues including consumer culture and pink-tax – but this latest effort might just be our favourite yet.

According to the official website, CAH have purchased a plot of vacant land right on the US-Mexico border, in an attempt to spoil Donald Trump's party and prevent him from completing the controversial wall designed to separate the two countries.

“We’ve purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specialising in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built,” the statement reads.

For the project (which is now sold-out), customers were asked to donate $15 in return for “six America-saving surprises,” including a map of the land, a certificate of the company's promise to fight the wall and some new cards.

As expected, the anti-Trump Twitter population has thrown its full support behind the cause.

Twitter users were frenzied yesterday evening when POTUS Donald Trump's social media presence completely disappeared.

Trump's Twitter was off the grid for an entire 11 minutes, according to Twitter Government. 

While many online thought that the president had been hacked, it turns out that this social media sabbatical was down to human error.

'Earlier today @realdonaldtrump's account was inadvertently deactivated due to human error by a Twitter employee,' reads the statement from Twitter Government.

'The account was down for 11 minutes, and has since been restored.'

'We are continuing to investigate and are taking steps to prevent this from happening again.'

The employee who made the error was reportedly on his or her's last day of work at Twitter.

'Through our investigation we have learned that this was done by a Twitter customer support employee who did this on the employee's last day,' reads a statement from Twitter.

'We are conducting a full internal review.'

Yep, that was definitely human error all right…

President Donald Trump announced today that he will ask Congress to end the immigration lottery program.

The US President blamed the Green Card Lotto for allowing the radicalised Uzbekistan man into the country who orchestrated last night's vehicle attack in New York City. 

The attack killed eight people and injured many more. 

'I am today starting the process of terminating the diversity lottery programme.'

'I’m going to ask Congress to immediately initiate work to get rid of this programme.'

'We will have a merit based programme,' the POTUS said. 

'We have to get much tougher and we have to get much smarter.'

'And we have to get much less politically correct. We’re so politically correct that we’re afraid to do anything.'

The programme is a popular method for Irish workers to gain access to the country. 

According to RTE, the lottery gives around 50,000 applicants from around the world entry to the USA each year. 

Tens of millions of people apply for the scheme anually.

Barely a day goes by when we don’t cringe or shudder over the words of the President of the United States of America, and Halloween is certainly no exception.

President Trump decided to ‘treat’ children of the White House press reporters yesterday, by opening up the Oval Office for a spot of trick-or-treating.

Trump, who is a grandfather of eight, welcomed little ones dressed in an array of costumes, from Princess Leia and Darth Vader, to witches and princesses.

Cameras rolled and flashed as Trump handed out chocolate to the eager trick-or-treaters, jokingly exclaiming: 'I cannot believe the media produced such beautiful children! How the media did this, I don’t know!'

Eyes rolled, however, as he handed out candy to a little girl, saying, 'You have no weight problems. That’s the good news, right?'

Once footage and reports of the exchange rolled out across the media, people took to Twitter to express concern that the President would raise such a sensitive topic around young children.

'I shudder to think what Trump might have said if he thought the kid did have a weight problem,' one person tweeted.

Trump views Halloween as a special time when you creep-out trick-or-treaters by making weird comments about their parents, weight and looks,' another added.

'Don’t know why Trump felt it appropriate to comment on these kids’ looks and weight,' another chimed in.

The trick-or-treat party is in stark contrast to last year’s festivities at the White House, where Barack and Michelle Obama greeted children on the lawn.

Dressed in casual jeans, the former President and First Lady giggled as they met tiny trick-or-treaters decked out in amazing costumes – who could forget the little Pope?!

What a difference a year makes, eh?!

Donald Trump has threatened to 'totally destroy' North Korea if it intimidates the USA in any way. 

Speaking at a UN General Assembly, Trump said: 'We will have no choice than to totally destroy North Korea.'

The POTUS also called on member states to work together to isolate North Korea.

'We will fight together, sacrifice together and stand together for peace,' he said, according to the Telegraph.

'For justice, for humanity, and the almighty God that made us all.'

Trump calls this action after a series of recent weapon's tests from the state. 

The POTUS also spoke about Kim Jong-ul's recent actions.

He said that Kim is a 'rocket man…on a suicide mission for himself and his regime.'

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, tens of thousands have been displaced from their homes and are in need of aid.

At least 35 people have died in the floods and a number have been reported missing. 

Donald Trump, who is worth a reported 3.5 billion dollars, is set to make a personal donation to those in need. 

The White House says that the POTUS has promised to donate 1 million dollars to help those in need.

The money will go to storm relief efforts, and he has not yet decided which specific organisation to donate it to.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made the announcement yesterday. 

The storm is now moving from Texas towards the state of Louisana.

Andy Hemming, Press advisor and Director of Rapid Response for Donald Trump, has stepped down from his role.

And what was that role exactly? Well, to find positive news about the POTUS. 

Mr Hemming was tasked with searching for positive news about the President, and then distributing it out to other news sites to promote the POTUS in a good light. 

It was a 'mutual decision that he could best help promote the president’s agenda on the outside,' Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told Politico.

'Andy is smart and very talented and we wish him all the best.'

It is not hugely surprising, due to the intense level of mistrust Mr Trump has voiced against the free press during his presidency and campaign trail. 

Regularly referring to journalists as 'bad people' and the press in general as fake news, Mr Trump has encouraged his supporters not to believe the news as is reported from mainstream media outlets.

The writer who shadowed Donald Trump in the 1980s, and claims to have ghostwritten the President's memoir, The Art of the Deal, has expressed his thoughts on Trump's time in office.

Tony Schwartz, who spent 18 months interviewing the business tycoon in the 1980s, has said, in no uncertain terms, that he doesn't see Trump lasting until the end of this year.

With political and racial tensions growing steadily in the United States over the course of this year, Schwartz spoke out on social media, writing: "The circle is closing at blinding speed."

"Trump is going to resign and declare victory before Mueller and Congress leave him no choice," he stated.

Following Trump's feeble response to the violence exhibited by white supremacists in Virginia in recent days, the press and public wasted no time condemning the leader's wholly inadequate reaction.

Considering the turning tides, Schwartz feels that it won't be long until Trump leaves the Oval Office – a move he feels will be due to internal pressure.

"Trump's presidency is effectively over," Schwartz declared. "Would be amazed if he survives till the end of the year. More likely resigns by fall, if not sooner."

Urging the public to stand united against Trump's worrying narrative, Schwartz continued: "The end game is on: Trump goes down or we do. He will blow up the world to prove he matters. We must stand up in opposition every day."

Schwartz has been inundated with support and comments from members of the public, keen to hear more of his assessment.

"Bring on the fallout. The sooner, the better," wrote one while another added: "I don't believe the end of his presidency is near. It felt like it too many times before only to see it's survival. Too many enablers."

Donald Trump has said that Ireland is one country he would like to see jobs moving from and back to the USA.

'We want products made in the country,' he said, at a press conference regarding the Manufacturing Council.  

'Now I have to tell you that some of the folks will leave, they're leaving out of embarrassment because they make their products outside.'

When asked specifically about companies Merck and Intel who have operations in Ireland, Trump responded:

'I've been lecturing them, including the gentlemen you're referring to, about you have to bring it back to this country.'

'You can't do it necessarily in Ireland and all of these other places, you have to bring this work back to this country, that's what I want,' he said.

'I want manufacturing to be back into the United States so that American workers can benefit.'

It may have taken him 48 hours, but Donald Trump has finally commented on the white nationalist rally which took place in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend. 

One protestor, Heather Heyer, lost her life in the violence after a car sped into the crowd. Up to 19 others were injured. 

The POTUS defended the white supremacists who rallied in protest of the removal of a statue of Robert E Lee, a confederate general. 

'Not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me, not all of those people were white supremacists,' he said in a press conference this morning. 

'You also had people that were very fine people on both sides' he said, when asked about the violence. 

He also criticised the 'alt-left' for participating in the rally, saying that they 'came violently attacking the other group.'

'What about the alt-left, that came charging at the, as you say, the alt-right? Do they have any semblance of guilt? What about the fact that they came charging with clubs in their hands, do they have any problem? I think they do.'

He also supported the cause of the protest of the white nationalists, saying: 'This week, it is Robert E. Lee and this week, Stonewall Jackson.'

'Is it George Washington next week and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You have to ask yourself, where does it stop?'

He referred to the journalists at the press conference as 'fake news' rather than addressing them individually.

North Korea's official news agency has said the country is considering a missile strike on the US Pacific territory of Guam.

The news comes just hours after President Donald Trump threatened the communist state with “fire and fury like the world has never seen,” following suggestions that they had overcome one of the last obstacles to being a fully nuclear armed state.

The state-run news agency, KCNA, said North Korea's military is "examining the operational plan" to strike areas around the US territory of Guam, specifically Andersen Air Force Base – a move designed "to send a serious warning signal to the US."

Guam's governor, Eddie Baza Calvo, released a video address on Wednesday, reassuring citizens that there was no reason to be alarmed.

"I want to reassure the people of Guam that currently there is no threat to our island or the Marianas," he said.

"I also want to remind national media that Guam is American soil and we have 200,000 Americans in Guam and the Marianas. We are not just a military installation."

This message was reiterated by The US Departemnt of Defense who said they have the capabilities to counter any threat.

Speaking to CNN, spokesman, Johnny Michael said: "We always maintain a high state of readiness and have the capabilities to counter any threat, to include those from North Korea."

Sir Paul McCartney has reportedly written a song about Donald Trump, just one month after slating the US President for showing the “ugly side of America.”

According to The Liverpool Echo, the 75-year-old former Beatle was making his annual appearance at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, when he confirmed the new track.

Reports suggest that the song, yet to be named, will feature on Paul's upcoming album, due for release later this year.

"Sometimes the situation in the world is so crazy that you’ve got to address it," the music icon told students who gathered to hear him speak.

Earlier this month, the musician vocalised his criticism of Trump during an interview with The Daily Telegraph:

"He’s unleashed the ugly side of America. People feel like they have got a free pass to be, if not violent, at least antagonistic towards people of a different colour or a different race.”

"I think we all thought we’d got past that a long time ago."

Details regarding Paul McCartney's upcoming album remain unclear, however it is known that the rock n' roll icon has been working with producer, Greg Kurstin, who in the past has worked with the likes of Adele, Lily Allen and Sia.
