  Jimmy Kimmel claps back at Trump for 'lowest-rated Oscars' tweet It wouldn’t truly be the Oscars if President Donald Trump didn’t have something to tweet about it, but Jimmy Kimmel was ready with a snappy comeback. “Lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY,” Trump wrote on Tuesday — which is true. This year’s Academy Awards telecast was the least-viewed in the show’s history, averaging 26.5 million viewers on ABC. “Problem is, we don’t have Stars anymore – except your President (just kidding, of course)!” Trump added. Kimmel, who hosted the ceremony and continues to denounce the president on Jimmy Kimmel Live, responded: “Thanks, lowest rated President in HISTORY.” Thanks, lowest rated President in HISTORY. https://t.co/E01UgDaZ3T— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) March 6, 2018 The Oscars telecast has continued to drop in viewers since 2014, which garnered 43.7 million viewers at the time. While the focus of this year’s show was more on the #MeToo, Time’s Up, and Never Again movements sweeping through Hollywood, Kimmel threw a few jabs towards the White House.

Following the sale, Gem Diamonds CEO Clifford Elphick said in a statement that the company was "delighted," adding that its purchase highlighted the "exceptional quality of The Lesotho Legend itself" and the high standard of the Letseng mine's diamond production.

Gem Diamonds has recovered a number of diamonds in recent months, with the company stating last week that it had unearthed six diamonds larger than 100 carats since the start of the year.
