Americans can travel to North Korea, if they wish -- but it may just be a death wish, the U.S. State Department cautioned. The State Department last week issued a stark warning to people setting out for the Hermit Kingdom, cautioning that anyone heading to the dangerous dictatorship should prepare for the possibility of not returning. “The U.S. government is unable to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in North Korea as it does not have diplomatic or consular relations with North Korea,” the State Department published Wednesday on its website. Those who wish to travel to North Korea must be approved for a special validation, which are handed out on “very limited circumstances.” U.S. travelers given the approval to experience Kim Jong Un’s regime should then prepare
The nuclear attack false alarm in Hawaii this weekend should be a wake-up call—not just to the need to prevent mistakes like this again, but also for the need to get serious about ballistic missile defense. What if the launch had been real? What if it really had been headed for Hawaii—or a city on our West Coast? What options do we have for stopping a catastrophic missile attack by North Korea? The FCC is launching a full-scale investigation into what went wrong in Hawaii, to make sure nothing like it happens anywhere again. Now, the Pentagon and its Missile Defense Agency need to launch a full-press investigation into making sure we have all the tools they need to prevent a missile attack. We already have ground-based ballistic missile defenses like THAAD and Aegis, and the Trump

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney took to Twitter on Monday morning to attack President Donald Trump, using the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday to suggest that Trump is a racist. Romney wrote: “The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race. The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/ America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.'” https://twitter.com/MittRomney/status/952915061697384449 The former Massachusetts governor was referring to allegations that President Trump had referred to “shithole countries” in a negotiation over immigration policy in the Oval Office last Thursday with a small group of Senators that inclu
The political news cycle reached a fever pitch in 2017, largely due to the roller coaster ride that was the first year of the Trump administration. After being sworn in on Jan. 20, 2017, President Donald Trump and his team never strayed far from the headlines. Countless storylines unfolded--but here are 12 of the biggest: 1. Jan. 27: First iteration of travel ban proposed The proposal to ban people from certain countries from entering the United States has gone through a number of legal hurdles and multiple versions, but it was originally put in place via executive order Jan. 27.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie Bezos, have donated $33 million to a scholarship fund for undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children — the biggest grant in the organization’s history. TheDream.US is the largest scholarship program in the country for participants in the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival program (DACA), who are often called Dreamers. The scholarship helps Dreamers who might otherwise be unable to afford college. Undocumented immigrants are not eligible for federal grants or loans, and they are precluded from state aid and in-state tuition rates in many states. Bezos — whose net worth is $108 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index— is now the world’s richest person. His donation will fund college scholars

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said President Donald Trump’s attacks on the press were like former Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin’s rhetoric. Flake said, “When you reflexively refer to the press as the enemy of the people or fake news, that has real damage.It has real damage to our standing in the world.” He added, “And I noted how bad it is for a president to take what was popularized by Joseph Stalin, the enemy of the people, to refer to the press.” Read more trump news in our President Trump category on following link .
Tweet it out, put on “tapes,” or just let the cameras roll. There will be a clear historical dividing line that separates what the American presidency and American politics were on either side of the current occupant of the Oval Office. That’s the unmistakable conclusion one year into the entirely unconventional and enormously consequential presidency of Donald J. Trump. Trump has fundamentally remade the office and how it functions, often on the fly, and generally in ways that he alone could have envisioned or executed. His instincts – to fight, to divide, to disrupt, to insult – have redefined what it means to be presidential. There will surely never be another Donald Trump. But neither can there be a wholesale reversion to what the office he holds was like before he assumed it.
President Trump on Sunday argued again that Democrats and their demands -- not him or fellow Republicans in Congress -- have throttled negotiations to provide permanent legal protection for young illegal immigrants and made clear that any such deal also must end the United States’ lottery-immigration program. “DACA is probably dead because the Democrats don’t really want it, they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our Military,” said Trump, in one of several tweets on the issue of immigration reform and on the related Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program. The president and Congress are attempting to reach a deal on comprehensive immigration reform as part of a federal spending bill that Congress must pass by Friday to avoid a government sh
