Elite: Trump spurns Taiwan president's proposal of another telephone call

U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday spurned the Taiwanese president's recommendation that the two pioneers hold another telephone call, saying he would not like to make issues for Chinese President Xi Jinping when Beijing has all the earmarks of being helping endeavors to get control over North Korea.

"See, my issue is I have built up a decent individual association with President Xi. I truly feel that he is doing his best to help us with a major circumstance," Trump told Reuters, alluding to signs that China might work to take off any new rocket or atomic test by Pyongyang, Beijing's neighbor and partner.

"So I wouldn't have any desire to bring about trouble at this moment for him," Trump included. "I believe he's making an astounding showing with regards to as a pioneer and I wouldn't have any desire to do anything that comes in the method for that. So I would unquestionably need to address him first."

As president-elect toward the beginning of December, Trump took a complimentary telephone call from Tsai. It was the primary contact between a pioneer of Taiwan and an officeholder or approaching U.S. president in about four decades, and Trump provide reason to feel ambiguous about Washington's longstanding approach of recognizing Beijing's "one China" arrangement, which attests that Taiwan is a piece of China.

US starts moving rocket protection framework to arrangement site in South Korea: report

The United States military is moving parts of its THAAD rocket protection framework into an arrangement site in South Korea, the Yonhap News Agency announced Tuesday.

The choice to move the hardware touched off a question between law implementation authorities and nearby inhabitants, Yonhap revealed.

The move comes in the midst of expanded strains between the U.S. also, North Korea. Concerns have developed as of late that the north could get ready to dispatch its 6th atomic test.

In the mean time, the U.S. has expanded its military nearness in the area, saying prior this month that it would send a Navy strike bunch nearer to the Korean Peninsula. Best Trump organization authorities have over and over said that they are keeping military choices on the table.

The north organized a substantial scale big guns penetrate on Tuesday to check the 85th commemoration of the establishing of its armed force.

China has cautioned against moving the rocket resistance framework into place, contending that it is not prone to help prevent North Korea and could be viewed as an incitement by the U.S.

Trump tells lawmakers 3-5M illegal ballots cost him popular vote, reports say

During a White House meeting with congressional leaders from both parties Monday, President Trump reportedly told lawmakers he would have won the popular vote against Hillary Clinton if it weren't for voter fraud, reviving his unsubstantiated claim about illegal voting.

The Washington Post, who first reported the conversation, claims Trump spent 10 minutes of the meeting "rehashing the campaign," claiming that 3 to 5 million illegal votes on election night cost him the popular vote. The New York businessman won the Electoral College, but his Democratic rival won the popular vote in November by nearly 2.9 million votes.

Trump, who has made the unverified claims about voter fraud before the election, incorrectly commented about his win back in a series of tweets in the weeks following the election. "In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally," Trump said on Twitter.

A century of women marching on the Mall

The Women’s March on Washington drew an estimated crowd of 500,000 to the Mall. The event is the latest in a tradition of civil dissent on the Mall, where women have organized rallies and demonstrations on a wide range of issues for over a century.

Crowd size is one way to measure event impact, but crowd estimates are difficult to pin down and can vary widely. Usually, organizer estimates will be larger, while National Park Service and police estimates are smaller. (The National Park Service stopped issuing event estimates in 1995 after controversy surrounding its numbers.) Here we compare ten notable women’s marches since 1913 using the best estimates available.

A fierce will to win pushed Donald Trump to the top

The two-story, 23-room house sits grandly on Midland Parkway in the Jamaica Estates neighborhood in Queens, its portico upheld by six white columns, as if a plantation manse from the South had been transplanted to suburbia. It was here, in a mansion built by his father, with a chauffeur-driven limousine in the driveway, that Donald Trump spent most of his childhood. And it was here, in this house that symbolized how the Trumps were bigger and brasher than all around them, that Donald first revealed his rebellious nature.

He punched his music teacher, disobeyed his parents by sneaking into Manhattan and, according to his close friend at the time, bought a switchblade knife. Eventually, his parents sent him away, enrolling him for five teenage years in New York Military Academy, which tried, and often failed, to calm the most hyperkinetic of all the Trumps. Donald, the family learned, could not be easily contained.

Now, as Trump prepares to move into a far grander, many-columned home, he is once again unlikely to be contained. That, it seems, is what the voters wanted. Trump’s arrival in Washington has excited a cross-section of the country who see in him not an elitist, but a populist who can explode the way business is done in the nation’s capital. The fact that Trump comes from such a privileged background, and that he became fabulously wealthy by catering to some of the world’s richest people, did not put off the millions of working-class people who supported him. To the contrary, they see him as their champion, even as he stacks his Cabinet with fellow billionaires.

Donald Trump the `presumptive` White House nominee as Cruz crashes out

Donald Trump looked all-but-certain of carrying the Republican Party colors in the 2016 presidential election after the billionaire political novice sent his only serious challenger Ted Cruz crashing out of the race.

Addressing jubilant supporters at Trump Tower in New York after romping to his seventh straight state-wide victory in the Indiana primary, the real estate mogul promised them: "We`re going to win in November, and we`re going to win big, and it`s going to be America first."

Tuesday`s contest in the midwestern state was seen as a final firewall by the "stop Trump" movement seeking to prevent him from locking in the party nomination.

But as the race was called overwhelmingly in Trump`s favor, Cruz conceded to supporters in Indianapolis that he no longer had a viable path forwards.

"We left it all on the field in Indiana," Cruz said. "We gave it everything we`ve got, but the voters chose another path."

"And so with a heavy heart, but with boundless optimism for the long-term future of our nation, we are suspending our campaign."

It was a stunning denouement for the arch-conservative Texas senator who had insisted he would press on to the final day of the Republican race.

His departure leaves the low-polling Ohio Governor John Kasich as Trump`s only challenger for the nomination -- making it a virtual certainty that he will go head to head in a general election matchup with the likely Democratic flagbearer Hillary Clinton.

The top echelon of the Republican establishment said as much minutes after Cruz capitulated, with Republican Party chief Reince Priebus declaring Trump the "presumptive" nominee.

"Donald Trump will be presumptive @GOP nominee, we all need to unite and focus on defeating @HillaryClinton," Priebus said, in an extraordinary move to embrace a candidate the party establishment fought tooth and nail to stop.

Clinton meanwhile suffered an upset in Indiana as her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders mounted a come-from-behind victory, denying the former secretary of state a feather in her cap as she seeks their party`s presidential nomination.

Sanders, a self-declared democratic socialist, beat Clinton by 53.2 percent to 46.8 percent with about three quarters of precincts reporting -- although Clinton remained well ahead in the overall delegate battle for the nomination.Cruz had been hoping to use the midwestern state to block Trump from receiving the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the nomination ahead of the Republican convention in Cleveland in July.

But the bombastic real estate mogul -- who has thus far defied all political logic to lead the Republican race -- swept the arch-conservative senator aside.

Trump was leading Cruz by about 53 percent to 37 percent, with Kasich languished at less than eight percent.

"Lyin` Ted Cruz consistently said that he will, and must, win Indiana. If he doesn`t he should drop out of the race-stop wasting time & money," Trump taunted in a tweet.

With 1,002 delegates to his name, Trump was already in favorable position to reach the magic number needed to avoid a contested party convention. With Cruz out of the race, crossing the threshold is a foregone conclusion for Trump.

Even before the Indiana results, Trump and Clinton had pivoted toward one another.

"I`m really focused on moving into the general election," Clinton said confidently Tuesday in West Virginia.

"That`s where we have to be because we are going to have a tough campaign against a candidate who`ll literally say or do anything," she said of Trump. "We`re going to take him on at every turn."

Cruz`s exit comes after the primary battle took a nasty turn Tuesday when Trump cited a tabloid report linking Cruz`s father Rafael to John F. Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald.

Trump raised the recent National Enquirer story in his interview with Fox News.

"This is just kooky," an irate Cruz shot back while stumping in Evansville, Indiana, branding Trump a "pathological liar."

"The man is utterly amoral," said Cruz, adding that "we are staring at the abyss" if Trump wins the White House. Source:
