A group of House conservatives is launching an 11th-hour bid to tank a sweeping budget deal, pressing President Donald Trump to reject it unless he gets new concessions. Fiscal conservatives, furious that the agreement provides over $300 billion in new federal spending without being fully paid for, are urging Trump to oppose the deal unless he secures additional funding for Immigration Customs and Enforcement, a top priority on the right.The agreement — which Trump announced in a tweet on Monday evening — would also raise the debt ceiling for two years, another difficult pill for conservatives to swallow.“You should veto this bill

The Arctic could be a key avenue for Russian cruise missiles, and the military must engage in the region to protect against it, according to a top U.S. general. Most of the discussion on missile defense is centered on traditional ballistic missiles or the advanced hypersonic missiles currently being developed by major powers, according to Air Force Gen. Terrence O'Shaughnessy, commander of U.S. Northern Command."But surprisingly there's not that much conversation about cruise missiles. And when I look at the cruise missile threat, I see that as one of the biggest threats that we face," O'Shaughnessy said during a Monday talk at the Center for Security and International Studies

NEW YORK—He won’t watch. Well, maybe just a little bit. President Donald Trump on Monday feigned indifference to Robert Mueller’s upcoming congressional testimony, an eyebrow-raising claim for a media-obsessed president who has been concerned for months about the potential impact of the former special counsel’s appearance. Much of Washington will stop in its tracks Wednesday as Mueller testifies on Capitol Hill for at least five hours, a nationally televised event that for many Americans will be their first detailed exposure to the former special counsel’s findings on Russia’s 2016 election interference. “No, I’m not going to be watching — probably — maybe I’ll see a little bit of it,”

Some commentators, including comedian Ricky Gervais, have suggested that there is something untoward about Yaniv’s behaviour.

London - The CEO of German industrial giant Siemens says that President Donald Trump is becoming a symbol of intolerance following his attacks on four female members of Congress.

Kaeser's remarks are the most prominent criticism from the business world in reaction to Trump's rally last week in North Carolina. The US president attacked Somali-born Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar and the crowd chanted "Send her back! Send her back!"

Tobias Ellwood told The Times: “The threats we’re facing are changing in front of us, the world is getting more complex. If we are wanting to continue to play this influential role on the international stage it will require further funding for our armed forces, not least the Royal Navy. Our Royal Navy is too small to manage our interests across the globe.” The news comes after it emerged that Tehran had ignored warnings from a British warship against seizing a UK-flagged tanker in the Gulf.
