Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) will announce his expected bid for the White House on June 1, he told “CBS This Morning.” Graham will make the announcement from central South Carolina, which hosts a key early primary. The hawkish senator will be seen as a long-shot for the White House, but could have a big influence in the GOP’s discussion on foreign policy and national security. “I’m running because of what you see on television, I’m running because I think the world is falling apart,” Graham said. “I’ve been more right than wrong on foreign policy.” The hawkish lawmaker has for months signaled that…

Agence France-Presse BRUXELLES La Belgique a décidé de suspendre son soutien au processus électoral au Burundi, où la contestation contre un troisième mandat du président Pierre Nkurunziza a entraîné des violences meurtrières depuis fin avril et se poursuivait lundi. La Belgique, premier partenaire bilatéral du processus électoral et ex-puissance colonisatrice du Burundi, a aussi interrompu sa coopération policière avec Bujumbura, a indiqué le vice-premier ministre et ministre de la Coopération au développement, Alexander De Croo, dans un communiqué. «La coopération belge au développement avait prévu un budget de 4 millions d’euros (environ 5,4 millions de dollars) pour soutenir les élections…

Pope Francis inspires Cuba’s Raul Castro towards Church

Cuban President Raul Castro has said he was so impressed by a Vatican audience with Pope Francis that he might return to the faith he was born into. Mr Castro praised the pontiff’s wisdom, adding: “I will resume praying and turn to the Church again if the Pope continues in this vein.” He thanked the Pope for brokering a rapprochement between Cuba and the US. The communist leader had stopped at the Vatican after attending Russia’s World War Two Victory Day in Moscow. The Catholic Church has maintained ties with Havana since the 1959 revolution. The Pope will visit Cuba on his…

Graham: GOP ‘getting creamed with non-white voters’

Getty Images

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) predicted Thursday Republicans will lose the 2016 presidential election without major immigration reform, saying the party is struggling to win minority voters. “The only way we lose this election is if we beat ourselves and that is very possible, but we are getting creamed with non-white voters,” Graham, a likely 2016 presidential contender, told host Susan Page on USA Today’s “Capital Download.” “We’ll lose,” he said, if the party doesn’t improve its prospects with minorities. “I mean, we’ve got a big hole we’ve dug with Hispanics,” he added. “We’ve gone from 44 percent of the Hispanic vote [in…

Pentagon raises threat level at US military bases

The Pentagon on Friday raised protection levels for military bases around the country, officials announced Friday. The decision was taken in response to an overall “heightened threat environment,” which included a recent shooting in Texas thought by some to have been connected to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) — which claimed responsibility for the attack — at an event where contestants drew the Islamic Prophet Muhammad, Pentagon spokesman Army Col. Steve Warren said. Warren said the move was not taken in response to any specific threat, but the “decision to do this now is informed by a…

Jobless rate falls to 7-year low

Getty Images

The U.S. economy added 223,000 jobs in April, bringing the jobless rate to a seven-year low after slow growth in the first three months of 2015. The strong figures bolster hopes that the economic recovery is not ending, and come as the White House is pushing Democrats to support President Obama’s trade agenda. The unemployment rate fell one-tenth of a point to 5.4 percent last month, the lowest since May 2008, even as March’s already dismal numbers were revised down by 41,000 jobs, a sign that the economy might have contracted in the first quarter after an anemic 0.2 percent…

U.S. Secretary of State Kerry and Iran's Foreign Minister Zarif pose for a photograph before resuming talks over Iran's nuclear programme in Lausanne

(Reuters) – Washington wants to be certain that any nuclear deal between Iran and major powers includes the possibility of restoring U.N. sanctions if Tehran breaks the agreement without risking Russian and Chinese vetoes, a senior U.S. official said on Tuesday. United Nations sanctions and a future mechanism for Iran to buy atomic technology are two core sticking points in talks on a possible nuclear deal on which Tehran and world powers have been struggling to overcome deep divisions in recent days, diplomats said on condition of anonymity. Negotiators were wrapping up nearly a week of talks in New York on Tuesday, the latest round…

Hillary makes early, aggressive play for blacks and Hispanics

TheHill

By Mike Lillis Hillary Clinton is taking early and aggressive steps to assemble the coalition of voters that propelled President Obama to victory in 2008 and 2012. The former secretary of State is reaching out to blacks, Hispanics, women, gays and millennials in an effort to build the support that proved critical for Obama. It’s a prescription that, if successful, would make it exceedingly difficult for a Republican opponent to defeat her, according to political experts. Last week, Clinton highlighted the nation’s entrenched racial disparities and called for an end to mass incarcerations — a message that resonates with black voters,…
