Welcome to the first ever edition of The Weekly Update from Friends News. We will be bringing you weekly updates on what is happening in the country every Sunday at 5:00 am Friendly Time.
As The Amalgamated Territories of Friends independence on June First is coming rapidly it looks like the Micro-Nation is really coming together. There have been 20 people who have signed up just in the past week since the website was launched. We are expecting many more to join us in the coming days. There have been almost 500 total page views and nearly 75 unique viewers. As the word about our small new country is starting to spread we see large spikes in viewers every day.
Yesterday His Majesty King Avery Hotchkiss said "In order to protect our citizens and the common good of this government I am banning the fascist, sexist, and raciest american presidential candidate Donald Trump from entering our country. If he is elected president of the United States we the people may need to discuss war with the U.S.. The idea of war with the U.S is very scary but sometimes... very rarely, war is needed." As he states to protect us he is banning Donald Trump from our great nation because of some of the comments he has made about immigrants and women. He has in the past expressed that we may need war if Donald Trump is elected because he could be a security threat to our citizens living in the United States. We requested a video interview with His Majesty King Avery Hotchkiss but we have yet to get a response.
Wednesday His Majesty King Avery Hotchkiss released that The Amalgamated Territories of Friends will be using the -6 GMT time zone but will not observe day light savings because in this day and age it is extremely impractical. This is very important because it sets us apart from The United States of America even more.
Many have been upset that His Majesty King Avery Hotchkiss made this time done change and state about Trump because according to the constitution he does not have the power to do so. People think that if he is already taking control he will go power hungry when independence is officially declared. We must remember that he wrote the constitution and very much wants the power it be in the hands of the people. The country is not yet independent and we do not yet have a congress nor a supreme court. His Majesty King Avery Hotchkiss cares about democracy greatly so it is not to worry.
