Senator John McCain said on Friday that he could not “in good conscience” vote for the latest Republican proposal to replace Obamacare, dealing a potentially fatal blow to its path forward.

Scaramucci said the leaking has declined and he credits Communications Director Hope Hicks and Chief of Staff John Kelly for that — to a point.
The men got along when Scaramucci was a donor to the Republican National Committee, Scaramucci said, but once he was designated for a White House job "then the food fight started. On Priebus: Aside being labled by Scaramucci as one of the most "unlikable" staffers in the White House, it was clear their relationship was a complicated one.
President Trump escalated a war of words with North Korea on Friday, calling Kim Jong Un a “madman” who would be “tested like never before,” the latest in a potentially dangerous exchange of threats that included the North Korean leader calling Trump “deranged.”

White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly has a new evening routine: He periodically strolls the perimeter of the White House grounds late at night, inspecting the compound and chatting with Secret Service agents to see if they have what they need.
During one meeting on the plane, he wordlessly delivered an extra order of fries from the galley for an aide who had been hungrily eyeing a co-worker’s order.
Steph Curry, the two-time NBA MVP, says the Golden State Warriors can “inspire some change” and “send a statement” by snubbing a visit to Donald Trump’s White House.

The summit week of the UN general assembly was always bound to be fraught with risk for US prestige: it would involve Donald Trump interacting in a multilateral arena – and Trump famously does not play nicely with other leaders.
