The Trump administration has said all options, including a military strike, are on the table. White House officials said Trump was briefed as Air Force One returned to Maryland from Atlanta, where the President earlier addressed a meeting of the National Rifle Association.
IGNACIO PINA: There's so much union busting and scapegoating going on right now that we are marching here for, again, the support of the workers and the support of the immigrants who make up a lot of that workforce. "The more Trump attacks immigrants and dehumanizes them, the more the American people see the humanity of our immigrant brothers, their vulnerability and their contributions", Gutierrez said.
He recently called to congratulate President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey on his victory in a much-disputed referendum expanding his powers, which some critics painted as a death knell for Turkish democracy. John Sifton of Human Rights Watch criticized Trump's invitation as an endorsement of Duterte's policies. USA and Philippine officials said Trump's calls and invitations to several Asian allies including Duterte were aimed at discussing the crisis over North Korea's nuclear threats.
BFM TV showed images of what looked like a burning shopping trolley rolled into a line of riot police and one officer set alight by a petrol bomb before his colleagues put the fire out. Mr Philippot told Radio Classique that Ms Le Pen's speech was a "nod-and-a-wink" to Mr Fillon's earlier discourse in order to "launch a real debate" concerning French identity.
The labour federation Cosatu abruptly cancelled Zuma's speech and other addresses at the rally it had organised, as TV footage showed scuffles breaking out in the crowd, apparently between supporters who voiced their backing of Zuma and opponents of the president.
The first question came from an IN student. "I didn't want my kids to be there and have anything to do with it to be honest", he said . I'm glad that members of the FFA are learning about all the career opportunities. "That shouldn't be happening". Over the past few years, the senator has toured schools in Kansas to sample meals and talk to students and administrators.
In Istanbul, Erdogan insisted that USA support for Kurdish groups "must come to an end", and he said he would bring up the matter at a meeting with President Donald Trump this month. "But we will make those places their grave, there is no stopping", Erdogan said ahead of a trip to India. The Turkish air force also bombed a radio station and media centre of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) - which Turkey and its Nato allies have designated a terrorist organisation - in Sinjar, across the ...
As tensions rise on the Korean peninsula in the wake of North Korea's failed missile test early Saturday, Russia is placing equal blame on Pyongyang and Washington for provocations. The North has conducted such tests or missile launches to mark significant events in the past. North Korea disrespected the wishes of China & its highly respected President when it launched, though unsuccessfully, a missile today.
France will elect its next president in six days, and the latest polls indicate the victor could very well be upstart En Marche candidate Emmanuel Macron over National Front leader Marine Le Pen. It all started when dozens of people - either covering their faces or wearing helmets - threw Molotov cocktails and stones at the riot police, who then responded with tear gas grenades.
Macron once served as Hollande's economy minister. Vignaud admitted that Macron had "messed up" the start of his second-round campaign, appearing "quite arrogant at a time when, given he is facing Le Pen, he needs to show gravitas". "I am European, but I do not want this political structure called the European Union, which is completely off course, [to remain in place]. Le Pen may not do everything she says but on immigration maybe she will change things".
In a failed test, a missile was launched from Pukchang Airfield north of the capital Pyongyang at about 9.30pm GMT on Saturday.

He wore a military grade helmet with a "Make America Great Again" sticker across the back, goggles, gas mask and knee pads. Dozens of police in riot gear stand ready to crack down on violence if it erupts.

North Korea's Rodong Sinmun - the official mouthpiece of the ruling Workers' Party of Korea - warned yesterday of dire consequences in the event of a US-led pre-emptive strike. President Donald Trump aims to pressure North Korea into dismantling its nuclear, ballistic missile and proliferation programs, and is engaging the global community to achieve that and persuade Kim Jong Un's government "to de-escalate and return to the path of dialogue".
The decision came as the World Bank warned that constant fuel shortages and insufficient infrastructure have brought about a "humanitarian crisis" for Palestinians in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip. Trump has said he intends to pursue efforts to achieve Israeli-Palestinian peace. The Israeli prison authorities employ mass incarceration, solitary confinement, administrative detentions, torture, and even the incarceration of minors as a matter of state policy.
A report from the Associated Press states that Williams experienced heavy breathing and "lurched forward 15 times in quick succession, then another five times at a slower rate".

On Wednesday, another embarrassing moment saw Macron being insulted by workers from Whirpool, a domestic appliance factory in Amiens, northwest of Paris, right after Marine Le Pen enjoyed a much warmer welcome on the industrial site. Wanted or not, Ms Le Pen was praised by her 88-year-old father, Jean-Marie, who she expelled from the Front National in 2015 after he reiterated anti-Semitic comments.
In a press conference, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on the USA to partner with Turkey in fighting ISIS and abandon their Kurdish allies.

The sub has since departed but neither the U.S. nor the South Korean military would confirm its movements. Moon Seong Mook, a South Korean analyst and former military official, says that the North would gain valuable knowledge even from failed launches as it continues to improve its technologies for missiles.
Le Pen called Macron the candidate of "the caviar left" and "moralizing snobbery" and warned that his pro-business policies wouldn't create jobs but send them overseas and leave French workers hungry. Le Pen's latest comments appear to have strengthened the determination of the Macron campaign. One of Macron's toughest tasks is to persuade those who backed the far-left candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon, to transfer their support to him.
The case was filed in the 9th Circuit because the plaintiffs are the City of San Francisco, and Santa Clara County.

"Once the Korean People's Army starts or stumbles into a decisive conventional war, they will run out of something critical like fuel or bullets or parts in 30 days tops", a USA military ...
Berkeley's reputation as one of the country's most liberal universities, in one of America's most liberal cities, has made it a flashpoint for the nation's political divisions in the era of Donald Trump. Students should not and can not be allowed to take over a campus and hijack the robust exchange of ideas-even if they think they have the best intentions and are promoting a virtuous, progressive agenda.
At the beginning of the meeting, Abe emphatically said: "Unlike the former administration of U.S. President Barack Obama, which pursued a policy of 'strategic patience, ' the administration of Donald Trump is trying to deal with the problem by thinking that all options are on the table".

With Sebastian Vettel on pole and his teammate, Kimi Räikkönen, starting next to him, many predicted a Ferrari win. "We are talking about this year", he said.

When policies rolled out starting in 2012 that tightened the hold on what could be served at public school cafeterias (lean proteins, whole grains , fruits and vegetables) and required some unhealthy foods to be reduced (salty and fatty foods like pizza and French fries), critics felt that the "policing" of school food made lunch inedible to children.
The spending agreement was the first major piece of bipartisan legislation to emerge since Trump was sworn in as President, and leaders on both sides pointed to the deal not only as a political victory, but also as a successful exercise in bipartisanship.
