Trump tells FBI: ‘I have your back 100%’

Trump

US President Donald Trump supports the FBI “100%”, he told law enforcement leaders during a graduation ceremony at the agency’s Virginia headquarters. His visit comes only days after he referred to the agency as “in tatters” and “the worst in history”. During his remarks, Mr Trump heaped praise on the FBI, which critics say has grown more politicised since the 2016 election. Earlier he vowed to “rebuild the FBI… bigger and better than ever”. “The president of the United States has your back 100 percent,” he said on Friday at the FBI’s National Academy in Quantico, Virginia. “By the way,…

GOP changes child tax credit in bid to win Rubio’s vote

Greg Nash

The final Republican tax bill will increase the amount of the refundable child tax credit to $1,400, Rep. Kristi Noem (R-S.D.) told reporters Friday, as leaders seek to win the vote of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). The refundable amount was $1,100 in the Senate-passed tax bill, but Rubio on Thursday said that wasn’t good enough. He has threatened to vote against the bill unless the refundable amount of the credit is increased. It’s unclear whether the change will be enough to satisfy him. A spokeswoman for Rubio said they had not yet seen the text of the bill, but warned that unless the percentage of the refundable credit is significantly…

Donald Trump Jr. leaves the Senate Intelligence Committee on Dec. 13, 2017 in Washington, D.C. (Photo: Tasos Katopodis, Getty Images) Twitter users pounced on Donald Trump Jr. Thursday for a tweet about the debate over net neutrality that featured a prominent typo and an apparent misconception about which president appointed the current chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. “I would pay good money to see all those people complaining about Obama’s FCC chairman voting to repeal #NetNeutality (sic) actually explain it in detail,” the president’s eldest son tweeted. “I’d bet most hadn’t heard of it before this week.” Donald Trump Jr. ✔@DonaldJTrumpJr…

Roy Moore says Alabama election ‘tainted’ by outside groups

BBC

Roy Moore says he will not accept defeat in Alabama’s election, arguing the vote was “tainted” by outside groups trying to stay in power. In a four-minute video on YouTube, the hardline Republican lashed out after Democrat Doug Jones claimed victory in Tuesday’s election. Mr Moore railed against gay rights, abortion, and “the right of a man to claim to be a woman and vice versa”. Democrats will hold the Alabama senate seat for the first time in 25 years. “We are indeed in a struggle to preserve our republic, our civilisation and our religion,” Mr Moore said in fire-and-brimstone…

Russian Foreign Ministry: Donald Trump has very hard time

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova commented on the US cruise missile strike on the Syrian airbase in Homs. According to her, these actions have an absolutely obvious political background. “We have repeatedly stated and emphasised at all levels that, unfortunately, the US domestic political situation and internal political layouts in Washington show increasing influence on the state of affairs in the world,” Zakharova said. Donald Trump is having hard times indeed during his first months as president, because “various political institutions in the US show as much opposition as possible to the work of the new US administration,” Zakharova…

REUTERS/KACPER PEMPEL NATO leaders meet in Warsaw on Friday to cement a new deterrent against what they see as an emboldened Russia, returning to Cold War-style defense with Washington again taking the part of Europe’s protector.
