Appearing to take a shot at President Donald Trump and make light of the various Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) checkpoints in Los Angeles, Heard took to Twitter on Tuesday, saying, “Just heard there’s an ICE checkpoint in hollywood, a few blocks from where I live. Everyone better give their housekeepers, nannies and landscapers a ride home tonight…”Facing fierce backlash, heard deleted a tweet many social media users called racist. Heard followed up that tweet with another, saying, “Checkpoints on your home streets…. Is this the “great” America we’re aiming for?

World China trade war As President Donald Trump’s trade war with China escalates, Hollywood industry experts are predicting potential financial losses and job cuts. Under a five-year agreement, which is currently under renegotiation, Beijing allowed 34 Hollywood films into China per year. While this may be a small number compared to the American movie industry’s overall output, the Chinese movie ticket sales grew by 22.3 percent last year totaling $8.6 billion. In the first quarter of 2018, China's box office also passed North America's to become the world's biggest.

Are there even more Washington-filmed box office hits on the horizon? Well, better to aim low and tackle the smaller issues first, like actually getting the CIA on board.
