James Comey hints at 2020 presidential run in arguably the worst political April Fool’s prank yet

James Comey hints at 2020 presidential run in arguably the worst political April Fool’s prank yetApril Fool's Day is possibly the worst time to believe anything you read on the Internet. Take, for example, former FBI Director James Comey a message he sent to his more than one million followers on Twitter. The former FBI director posted a photo to his account showing him standing with his back towards the camera on an open road, looking into the distance with his hands in his pockets and his feet planted over a yellow lane separating each side of the street. “I’m in,” he wrote. “We need someone in the middle.”The former official — who Donald Trump forced out of the FBI in a controversial move that sparked public outcry — then added the hashtag 2020, leading some to believe he was set to make a bold announcement about a political bid for the White House. Mr Comey has no reported intention of actually campaigning to become the next president of the United States, however. And by the sound of his tweet’s response, sitting out of the race is likely a smart decision on his part. Hours after the original picture was posted to his account, Mr Comey tweeted, “But could you imagine a president who used this website to make dad jokes rather than to hurl insults?”> I’m in. We need someone in the middle. 2020 pic.twitter.com/IGt69bEQz1> > — James Comey (@Comey) > > April 1, 2019“Happy AprilFools,” he continued, adding the hashtag VoteDem2020. “April Fools jokes are supposed to be funny, Mr Comey,” one user wrote. Another added: “Without a doubt, this is the worst thing that Comey has ever done.” Twitter users continued railing against Mr Comey throughout the day, pointing to a 2016 press conference in which he divulged details about the FBI’s findings into Hillary Clinton’s emails as alleged evidence of his political bias. Mr Comey, who detailed his career in the FBI and what it was like being removed by Mr Trump in the recent book A High Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership, has been criticised for his handling of the probe by lawmakers and Americans on both sides of the aisle.

US Navy chief hints aircraft carrier could be sent through Taiwan Strait, despite threat of new Chinese missiles

US Navy chief hints aircraft carrier could be sent through Taiwan Strait, despite threat of new Chinese missilesThe US Navy could still send an aircraft carrier through the Taiwan Strait in spite of Chinese military technology advances which pose a greater threat to American warships than ever before, the US chief of naval operations has said. Such an operation would inevitably increase the risk of military conflict between the world’s largest superpowers, which are currently locked in an escalating trade war and ongoing disputes over territorial claims in the South China Sea. Washington sent ships through the strategic waterway, which separates Taiwan from the Chinese mainland, three times last year, but has not dispatched a carrier in more than 10 years.
