The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.

Updated: Sep 10, 2019

1. I will fight for you with every breath in my body – and I will never, ever let you down.

2. We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action – constantly complaining but never doing anything about it.

3. Do not let anyone tell you it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America.

4. You will never be ignored again.

5. The time for empty talk is over.

6. Now arrives the hour of action.

7. We must speak our minds openly.

Or was this entire FAKE NEWS Mr President!

So where do we go from here! The USA Embassy in Panamá now does not reply to E-mails & notifies people to stay away from me. Prime Minister Teresa May or David Cameron do not to respond, The USA Ambassador in London does not want to know?

Dear Prime Minister

I will keep this letter short, brief and to the point.

I have two pressing issues which there is no answer to without your intervention, I have exhausted every possible avenue, including requesting the assistance from MP Mrs Helen Whately.

Issue 1:

My wife and two Children were refused entry at Heathrow in November 2014 and in November 2015, the issue was she had inadvertently overstayed, unknowingly for 7 days on her previous visit back in 2013. The law back in 2013 was if you had overstayed for a period of no more than 21 days, it was the general rule of thumb to waiver this oversight. If however you had overstayed beyond the 21 day limit you had to leave the UK for a period of one year before returning.

To date my wife and two UK children have been separated since 2014, despite applying for a visa that was also refused. My wife and children have no criminal record, and can find no valid plausible reason for the refusal; this mind-set is also confirmed by my immigration attorney who lobbied Helen Whately about this case.

One immigration officer did give a lame excuse, which I am sure they use in there arsenal of tools to keep the migration numbers down, the officer said (We do not believe she will return back). Under immigration rules I have meet all the criteria’s required as a husband, for my wife and children to visit, but still I am told to reapply again for my wife’s Visa, with no guarantee that it would be granted.

From my experience I feel that immigration has no compassion or understanding to human life especially when it comes to the rights of a child. My first daughter is now coming up to 5 and has only seen her dad for 6 months of her life, my second daughter is coming up to 3 and has never been held, or seen her dad, despite them being British.

I have never been charged or convicted of any crime, but have been expelled from Panamá until 2024. Besides my two daughters, I have a British son from my first marriage who was abducted to Panamá in 2009 that I have not seen, or heard from since, despite filing a Hague case in Panamá City.

I request your assistance in helping on the following matters please:

1) Instigate and investigation regarding my wife’s refusal by Immigration Border Force.

2) Arrange for the British Embassy in Panamá City to carry out a welfare and whereabouts visit to check the well-being of my son, who is now 12.

Yours Sincerely

Nicholas Tuffney

Johnson-founder ancestors is named Trump's ambassador to Britain

Billionaire New York Jets owner who owes his fortune to Johnson & Johnson-founder ancestors is named Trump's ambassador to Britain Donald Trump has announced he will nominate tycoon Woody Johnson, owner of the New York Jets American football team, as the US ambassador to Britain.

The president had tipped close friend and fellow billionaire Mr Johnson for the job when he said the businessman was 'going to St James's' during a lunch in January.

At the time the appointment was welcomed as a 'stylish' choice as the US's top diplomat in London, also known as ambassador to the Court of St James's.

Mr Johnson, 70, helped raise money for Mr Trump's presidential campaign and donated funds to help pay for his inauguration.

The billionaire businessman and philanthropist from the Johnson & Johnson family is chairman and chief executive of the Jets.

He will hand over control of the Jets to his brother, Christopher, should the nomination be approved.

The appointment was welcomed by Prime Minister Theresa May, who said it showed Mr Trump's close ties to Britain.

'We are looking forward to working with the new U.S. ambassador once that is confirmed,' the spokesman said.

Looking at their beaming camera-ready smiles, you would think Donald Trump and Woody Johnson had always been great friends - but this hides a rocky history.

In the Republican primaries, Mr Johnson served as campaign treasurer to Mr Trump's bitter rival Jeb Bush, and only switched allegiance when the campaign ran aground last May.

The two men clashed after the president-elect mocked the performance of Mr Johnson’s New York Jets on Twitter and cited him as an example of how Mr Bush was a puppet of big money interests.

Wealthy Mr Johnson certainly is - he is heir to an estimated inherited family fortune of $6.3($5.95).

The mogul paid $635million (£515million) for the Jets in 2000 and despite a difficult first few years, he stuck with the team and they are now valued at three times that sum.

The Jets caused a stir when they came to play a game at Wembley Stadium in 2015 and it emerged they had brought their own toilet paper to avoid the ‘thinner version used in England’.

Mr Johnson's personal life has been regularly documented in the New York tabloid press.

After divorcing, he married an actress two decades his junior, Suzanne Ircha, in 2009. He was struck by family tragedy a year later, when his daughter died.

Mr Johnson is likely to become a key figure in any joint initiative by Downing Street and Trump’s White House to strengthen post-Brexit ties and possibly agree a new US-UK trade deal.

The nomination has to be approved by the US Senate, which will also decide on Mr Trump's choice of ambassador to Belgium, Jamie McCourt.

Ms McCourt was co-owner and chief executive of the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team until 2009.

President of the Jets, Neil Glat, said: 'On behalf of the entire organisation, we would be extremely proud to see Woody nominated and confirmed as US ambassador.We could not be more excited for him and his family.'

Christopher Johnson added: 'If Woody is nominated and confirmed, I would be honored to oversee the organization.'

Johnson comes from American enterprise royalty, being the heir to a vast Johnson & Johnson fortune.

His great-grandfather founded the company in 1887, and it became a health care behemoth.

Incoming presidents often reward major supporters, donors or fundraisers with plum ambassador posts. But the Trump administration is behind on filling key jobs.

Only nine of the US State Department's 121 political appointee positions have been taken by confirmed nominees.

Out of the 70 vacant ambassadorial roles, only a handful has been filled. Johnson acquired the Jets in 2000. The team has had a winning season just once in the past six years, and their 2016 record ended with five wins and 11 losses.
