The resettlement deal was struck with the administration of President Barack Obama, Turnbull said , adding that he did not tell President-elect Donald Trump that the United States had agreed to the deal.

The driver of a tram that derailed in south London , killing seven people, was released on police bail on Thursday. The most kind, giving person we'll ever have in our lives!

Netanyahu was among the first leaders Trump spoke to after his election victory, and the president-elect's message called Israel a "beacon of hope". Like right-wing Israelis, Trump himself argues that the reality in Gaza - where Israel abandoned its rule to the Palestinian Authority, enabling Hamas to turn it into a terror base - speaks for itself, said Greenblatt.
In addition, they had individual meetings with her that day and next day. The scandal has deprived South Korea of strong leadership, as economic growth slumps and some of its biggest companies suffer embarrassing setbacks.

Arizona's defense - Allowing just 17.5 points per game, Arizona has the fourth strongest defence for this statistic in the league. Johnson ran for 157 yards and two TDs in a 33-21 Arizona victory at San Francisco on October 8.
Even if the recovered emails are found to contain classified information, it's not clear what impact that would have on the investigation. This makes it unlikely there will be a resolution prior to the election.

Comey's letter was sent over the objections of Justice Department officials.

As the 1992 agreement is an global treaty, the president does not have to consult with the Senate before withdrawing. The Paris Agreement includes a section that makes it hard for countries to withdraw once the pact takes force, and that status was reached November 4 -- unusually fast by United Nations standards, in part because of fears of a Trump presidency.
The talks were revived on Nov 1, about four years after Seoul walked out of the deal in 2012 as a result of domestic opposition. The pact is expected to run into opposition in South Korea , where memories of Tokyo's colonial rule and wartime actions still rankle.

When Stahl brought up the reported cases of Trump's supporters harassing minorities across the country, he delivered a straight-foward message. And I say, 'Stop it.'
