All great super-villains do their best work at night, and Donald Trump is no exception.

The US President is at least five hours behind us in Britain, so most of his key decisions and vigorous tweets are happening while we are asleep in the UK.

Last night was no exception, with the President's new travel ban creating predictable headlines around the world.

Yet there was another, rather more positive news development courtesy of oil and gas giant Exxon Mobil, which has pledged to spend a whopping $20billion on oil projects along the Gulf Coast. 

Of course, because of the jobs this will create in the states of Texas and Louisiana, amongst other states bordering the Gulf of Mexico, the White House was thrilled. 

The move shouldn't come as that much of a surprise given Mr Trump's new Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, used to be the company's CEO. 

And true to style, the President took to Twitter to make his thoughts on the matter clear and drive home some of his personal ideology about how America needs to work.
