Warning: John Dybvig does try to contain himself, but there are a few swear-words used in his piece, so listen to this week's Letter from America at your own risk.

Ivanka Trump, daughter of US President Donald Trump, this week spoke out about her mother’s immigrant status.

It gone John Dybvig thinking – does Ms Trump know anything about her mother?

She discussed how she is the child of an immigrant, but her mother was a legal immigrant.

However, in Ivanka Trump’s new book she discusses how she made it into the country through a sham wedding, thus making her an illegal immigrant.

“She obviously hasn’t read the book,” Mr Dybvig says.

Mr Dybvig and Graeme also look at a shooting that occurred in the United States this week.

An unarmed man was shot for parking in a disabled parking spot and not being disabled.

Following the shooting it was revealed that the man was in possession of a disability pass.

This week every important agency, including the CIA, gathered for a press conference at the White House.

They said that Russia is meddling with US politics.

Mr Trump came back later that day and disregarded the conference entirely, telling media that it was a hoax.
