The latest example came when Trump defiantly tweeted on Monday night that he wants to call his plan to stop travel from six Muslim-majority countries a "travel ban" and "not some politically correct term". A key issue before the justices in whether Trump's comments during the 2016 president campaign, including calling for "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States", can be used as evidence that his order was meant to discriminate against Muslims.
The DUP was founded in the 1970s by the late firebrand preacher Ian Paisley, and in the 1980s was a key player in the "Save Ulster from Sodomy" campaign, which unsuccessfully fought against the legalization of gay sex.

The Lebanese militant group Hezbollah has condemned the twin extremist attacks in Tehran , describing them as part of an "international, destructive plan" backed by various regional governments.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson also backed the Saudi-led moves against Qatar in general, but insisted that they ought to ease the blockade against the nation, for the sake of the U.S. Donald Trump's anti-Iran stance, which was on display at last month's Riyadh summit, appears to have emboldened Saudi Arabia to take action against its smaller neighbour in a bid to bring it into line with the GCC's staunchly anti-Iran policy ( Oman is an exception ).
Record-low turnout, however, took some shine off the achievement. Otherwise, all contenders who get at least 12.5 percent of the votes of registered voters advance to the second round. Le Pen complained that the legislative voting system didn't fully represent voters' wishes - because her party got around 14 percent of votes but wasn't able to greatly improve on the two legislators it had in the last legislature.
A stream of senior lawmakers entered her office at 10 Downing St. on Sunday afternoon, to learn what roles they had been given in government.

Just before New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito started walking up Fifth Avenue on Sunday, she announced she was there "to celebrate".

The aircraft flew above rocket-firing Philippine helicopters that struck militant positions, causing plumes of smoke to billow skyward. The Philippines military said on Saturday U.S. Fighting erupted when the military and police monitored Abu Sayyaf leader Isnilon Hapilon, the acknowledged IS leader here, in Marawi. Military officials say, however, that the raid pre-empted a plot by hundreds of militants waving Islamic State group-style black flags to capture Marawi and kill Christians.
As May struggled to contain the fallout, her two closest aides resigned. That calculation backfired spectacularly on Thursday as voters stripped the Conservatives of their parliamentary majority. May confirmed Friday that senior ministers would remain in their posts , despite rumours that she had been ready to sack finance minister Philip Hammond following a clash over her Brexit strategy.
Conservative Julian Brazier lost the seat he had held for three decades to Labour's Rosie Duffield - by 187 votes.

That means the DUP will back the government on key votes, but it's not a coalition government or a broader pact. "Discussions will continue next week to work on the details and to reach agreement on arrangements for the new parliament". The resignations of Timothy and Hill, on whom May had been heavily reliant since her previous job at the interior ministry, will be a personal blow.
Police Commander Dean Haydon said the attackers may have worn the belts because they planned to take hostages, "or it might be that they saw it as protection from being shot themselves".

Trump teased reporters Friday that they would be " very disappointed " when it is finally confirmed , " in a very short period of time ", whether or not there are actual recordings of Trump and Comey's intimate conversations.

The party said Saturday that Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill have quit. Apart from being strongly opposed to same sex marriage, Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party is also against women's reproductive rights, and believes creationism should be taught in schools.
It now holds 318 seats. What this country needs more than ever is certainty. Now, what happens as Theresa May loses her majority in the UK Parliament. "May's alliance is a dishonorable coalition of chaos", tweeted the British environmental and political activist George Monbiot. Among the UK's smaller parties, the DUP gained two seats to reach a total of 10, the Liberal Democrats gained three seats to reach 12 and the Scottish National Party lost 19 seats to total 35.

US President Donald Trump had on Friday denied he tried to interfere with an FBI investigation, effectively accusing James Comey , the FBI's former director, of lying under oath to Congress. Can you tell us about those? "I hope you can let this go". White House advisers have expressed little optimism that Trump priorities on taxes and public works projects will win over Democrats.
Labour remains in the opposition. The DUP support for the Tories looks set to have implications for the Brexit negotiations. In March, Scottish lawmakers voted 69-59 in favor of an independence referendum, giving Sturgeon the green light to ask the UK Parliament for a referendum.

So I'm now the nominee of the Democratic Party. "It was bankrupt, it was on the verge of insolvency, its data was mediocre to poor, non-existent, wrong". Well, because the liberal media are permanently afflicted with Trump derangement syndrome and won't quit feeding Clinton's narcissistic obsession with her defeat.
Mrs May failed to win a majority in the British parliament in an election on Thursday. Mrs May's party is deeply divided over what it wants from Brexit, and the election result means British businesses still have no idea what trading rules they can expect in the coming years.

Palestinians dispute Israel's presence in the Golan Heights region, which is home to 50,000, more than half of which are Israelis.
