Donald Trump this week: U.S. president threatens to destroy a country of 25-million people

Today 09:00 GMT

In a nearly 40 minute speech to the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday, Trump made misleading claims about the U.S. economy before launching into a tirade against North Korea, threatening to destroy the country of more than 25-million people.

Cobb reportedly brought up the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting — between Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort who met Russian operatives.

China slashes trade ties with North Korea

Today 09:02 GMT

China has moved to limit North Korea's oil supply and will stop buying textiles from the politically isolated nation, it said on Saturday.

North Korea produces coal, some $1.2bn of which was exported to China in 2016, but China had already strictly limited its imports of North Korean coal earlier this year.

Aides warned Trump not to attack North Korea's leader personally before his fiery U.N. address

Today 09:02 GMT

Senior aides to President Trump repeatedly warned him not to deliver a personal attack on North Korea’s leader at the United Nations this week, saying insulting the young despot in such a prominent venue could irreparably escalate tensions and shut off any chance for negotiations to defuse the nuclear crisis.

Trump’s derisive description of Kim Jong Un as “Rocket Man on a suicide mission” and his threat to “totally destroy” North Korea were not in a speech draft that several senior officials reviewed and vetted Monday, the day before Trump gave his first address to the U.N. General Assembly, two U.S. officials said.

Sen. John McCain declared his opposition Friday to the GOP’s last-ditch effort to repeal and replace “Obamacare,” dealing a likely death blow to the legislation and, perhaps, to the Republican Party’s years of vows to kill the program. “I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal,” McCain said in a statement, referring to the bill by Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana.

FDA approves medical scope with disposable cap to fight superbug infections

Today 09:00 GMT

Seeking to prevent superbug outbreaks, federal health officials said they have approved the first gastrointestinal medical scope with a disposable cap for use in the U.S.. The Food and Drug Administration said that the design of the new duodenoscope by Japanese device maker Pentax should make it easier to remove dangerous bacteria that can become trapped inside these reusable instruments.

“We believe the new disposable distal cap represents a major step toward lowering the risk of future infections associated with these devices,” Dr. William Maisel, the acting director of the FDA’s Office of Device Evaluation, said in a statement Wednesday. “We encourage companies to continue to pursue innovations that will help reduce the risk to patients.”

Credit agency Experian says it can protect you from the 'dark Web' — sort of

Today 09:00 GMT

The recent ad from rival Experian highlights a more troublesome aspect of credit agencies — their use of questionable methods to spook people into buying services they may not need and, in so doing, giving the companies permission to share data with marketers and business partners.

“One of the biggest problems with credit reporting agencies is that their real customers are the banks and landlords who pay for credit reports,” said Peter Swire, a professor of law and ethics at Georgia Tech. “Ordinary consumers are not their main market, except when the company can talk us into paying for something about our own credit history,” he said.

Angela Merkel: The eternal chancellor

Today 09:02 GMT

Anyone who wants to know why Angela Merkel has remained Germany's undisputed leader for so long need only listen to what those outside her own party say about her.

As federal chancellor she has considerable political scope, even though the chancellor technically ranks number three among the leaders of the state, after the president of the Bundestag and the head of state, the German president. The New York Times elected her the "last powerful defender of Europe" – an obligation.

'Russia hoax continues': Trump attacks investigation into Facebook ads

Today 09:00 GMT

Donald Trump has attacked the escalating investigations into some 3,000 adverts purchased on Facebook by Russians in the 2016 US presidential, using Twitter early Friday to say the “Russia hoax continues, now it’s ads on Facebook”. He repeated his attacks on the “biased and dishonest” media coverage that he said favored his rival Hillary Clinton.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg broke his silence on the issue in a Facebook live video on Thursday, saying that the company would provide the controversial ads to government officials to support ongoing investigations in the US and as part of its renewed efforts to protect the “integrity” of elections around the world.

The Health 202: Cassidy-Graham's abortion ban workaround

Today 09:00 GMT

Abortion opponents believe they’ve built an impenetrable firewall between taxpayer dollars and abortion coverage in the latest Obamacare overhaul plan known as Cassidy-Graham.

Of course, if the Hyde language somehow stays in Cassidy-Graham and the whole bill becomes law, insurers would face an immediate, pressing question: What to do about dozens of health plans that cover abortions? The prohibition would go into effect immediately, applying to 2018 plans that are up for sale starting in just a few weeks, on Nov. 1.
