Trump renewing his complaint about kneeling NFL players

  Trump renewing his complaint about kneeling NFL players WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump is renewing his complaints about NFL players who kneel during the national anthem. Players have been kneeling to protest racism and police brutality, particularly toward people of colour. Trump says the act is disrespectful and is hurting the game. Trump tweeted Tuesday that at least 24 players kneeled during weekend play at stadiums that he says are having a hard time filling with fans. The president says: "The Players have been kneeling to protest racism and police brutality, particularly toward people of colour. Trump says the act is disrespectful and is hurting the game.

Despite urgent appeals from Arab and European leaders and the risk of anti-American protests and violence, Trump declared that he was ending an approach that for decades has failed to advance the prospects for peace. He also for the first time personally endorsed the concept of a "two-state solution" for Israel and the Palestinians, provided both sides agree to it.

"I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel," he said in a White House address, calling it "overdue" and in the best interests of the United States. He said recognition acknowledged the "obvious" that Jerusalem is the seat of Israel's government despite the disputed status that is one of the key elements in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

  The tweet that could signal the end of President Donald Trump. You’ve probably heard the words “Trump” and “impeachment” getting tossed around over the last couple of days. And something to do with a tweet and man named Flynn? That’s because the White House is currently fighting off what is arguably the biggest threat to an administration since the Watergate scandal of the 1970s, after Donald Trump posted a tweet that some claim could lead to criminal charges and the downfall of his presidency.

"This is nothing more or less than the recognition of reality," he said.

Trump also directed that the State Department begin the process of moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem as required by U.S. law. Officials said, however, that the move will take years to complete.

Is Taylor Swift a “Silence Breaker”? The case for and against her place on Time’s cover.

  Is Taylor Swift a “Silence Breaker”? The case for and against her place on Time’s cover. Is Taylor Swift a “Silence Breaker”? The case for and against her place on Time’s cover.On Wednesday morning, Time magazine unveiled its annual Person of the Year issue, inspiring much acclaim and one nagging question: Why is Taylor Swift on the cover?

WASHINGTON (AP) — Defying dire, worldwide warnings , President Donald Trump on Wednesday broke with decades of U.S. and international policy by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel ' s capital .

WASHINGTON (AP) — Defying dire, worldwide warnings , President Donald Trump has recognized Jerusalem as Israel ' s capital , a move upending decades of U.S. policy and carrying unclear consequences for Mideast peace efforts.

Trump maintained that his decision would not compromise the city's geographic and political borders, which will still be determined by Israel and the Palestinians.

Ahead of Trump's speech, Arab and Muslim leaders spoke about the potential for violence. In Gaza, hundreds of Palestinian protesters burned American and Israeli flags. They also waved Palestinian flags and banners proclaiming Jerusalem as their "eternal capital," language that Israelis similarly use for their nation.

Even America's closest allies in Europe questioned the wisdom of Trump's radical departure from the past U.S. position, which was studiously neutral over the sovereignty of the city.

Jerusalem includes the holiest ground in Judaism. It's also home to Islam's third-holiest shrine and major Christian sites, and any perceived harm to Muslim claims to the city has triggered protests in the past, in the Holy Land and beyond.

America's consulate in Jerusalem has ordered U.S. personnel and their families to avoid visiting Jerusalem's Old City or the West Bank, and urged American citizens in general to avoid places with increased police or military presence.

Secret 1979 documents shed new light on why Joe Clark broke Jerusalem embassy promise

  Secret 1979 documents shed new light on why Joe Clark broke Jerusalem embassy promise Prime Minister Joe Clark’s government backed down on its controversial 1979 promise to move Canada’s Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem in part over fears of possible economic fallout, according to secret cabinet documents obtained by CBC News. Behind closed doors, cabinet ministers like Finance Minister John Crosbie and Industry Minister Robert de Cotret were particularly concerned, warning that ministers should carefully consider the possible economic effects and how to mitigate them. Communications Minister David MacDonald advised his colleagues that a company was "very concerned about its contract in Saudi Arabia.

Trump’s Jerusalem decision and the implications for NAFTA .
Donald Trump has thrown the Middle East into a tizzy. The U. S. president’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital has been denounced by some of America’s closest allies.Chances for a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians, always slim at best, now seem even more remote.But for Canadians, Trump’s Jerusalem decision signals something else as well. It shows that he is willing to deliver on his election promises, no matter how unwise the experts think they are.Those who fear that he might keep his pledge to abrogate the North American Free Trade Agreement should be worried.Most experts like NAFTA, which links the economies of Canada, the U.S. and Mexico.
