In Mexico, Trump's child separations trigger wrenching decisions

Thursday 05:16 GMT

Epigmenio Centeno had hoped to cross the Mexican border into the United States in the coming months, but he and his wife have shelved their plans for fear of being separated from their two sons under U.S. President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy.

“The indirect effect of this Trump policy, which I’m sure they were aware of, and don’t even care, is handing the problem to Mexico,” said Gustavo Mohar, a former Mexican immigration official.

Anti-Trump Lester Holt's embattled 'NBC Nightly News' fails to mention inspector general hearing

Thursday 02:28 GMT

The House Judiciary and Oversight committees questioned Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz over his bombshell report into FBI and DOJ misconduct during the Hillary Clinton email probe this week – but viewers who rely on NBC’s embattled “Nightly News” would have no idea.

During the debate, Holt questioned Trump aggressively about the racially charged issue of police “stop and frisk” policies while, critics say, he lobbed softballs at Clinton.

Could the 16:8 diet help you lose weight without the hunger?

Thursday 02:28 GMT

When obese people structured their schedule so that they fasted for 16 hours a day, but were free to eat whatever they wanted in the other eight hours — known as the 16:8 diet, or time-restricted feeding — they modestly lost weight and lowered their blood pressure after 12 weeks on the regimen, a new study published in the journal Nutrition and Healthy Aging found.

There’s promising new research about a weight-loss plan that doesn’t involve calorie counting, constant hunger or extreme effort.

'Trump is 100% right': David Horowitz, the thinker who sponsored Stephen Miller

Thursday 08:11 GMT

David Horowitz, a 79-year-old former Black Panther party activist turned conservative firebrand, was feeling defensive on behalf of his friend and protege Stephen Miller, the 32-year-old architect of Donald Trump’s immigration policy.

Sessions and Miller share more than policy views: they share a mutual friend in Horowitz, who first met Miller when the younger man was still in high school, spoke at Duke University at Miller’s invitation in 2006, and who ultimately put Miller forward for a job in Sessions’s office when Sessions was a senator from Alabama.

Exclusive: James Comey talks Trump, Russia probe and FBI legacy

Thursday 08:12 GMT

In an exclusive interview, former FBI director James Comey told DW's Conflict Zone that despite his career in law enforcement, he doesn't draw "the darkest inference" about US President Donald Trump's vehement denials of collusion with Moscow. "The fact that someone acts this way doesn't necessarily mean that they're guilty of something," Comey told DW. "It could just be this president's lifelong habit of attacking, attacking, attacking when he feels threatened.

It is time for Neymar to start playing for the team, not himself

Thursday 13:39 GMT

I know it was only Panama but I was impressed by the Belgians and you sense they are capable of going a long way if they stick together.

Because he knows he has the talent to change games, you get the impression Neymar wants to be the one to do that something special. Whenever the ball came to him he slowed the game down, irrespective of whether it was the right thing to do or not.

Russia on brink of knockout stage after win over Egypt

Wednesday 19:07 GMT

World Cup hosts Russia virtually booked their place in the second round with a 3-1 win over Egypt on Tuesday that moved them to top of Group A with six points from two games.

Egypt, whose final group game is against the Saudis, have only the slimmest of chances of staying in the tournament although they will at least be hopeful of picking up a first win in what is their third World Cup. Hector Cuper’s side looked confident given the return of their talisman Salah, but the forward was short of full sharpness and made little impact in what was a tight first half.

President Trump seems to be saying more and more things that aren’t true

Wednesday 21:51 GMT

Within the past week, Trump seems to have ramped up both the volume and the intensity of his false statements on two of the most prominent topics currently facing his administration: the hard-line immigration policy that has led to the separation of thousands of children from their parents — which Trump erroneously blames on others — and the 500-page inspector general report that he claims, incorrectly, exonerates him in special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

World Cup 2018: Uruguay beat Saudi Arabia to send themselves & Russia into last 16

Thursday 05:17 GMT

Uruguay's slender victory over Saudi Arabia ensured that they and host nation Russia reached the last 16 of the World Cup.

Russia's 3-1 win over Egypt on Tuesday means both they and Uruguay have collected maximum points from their two Group A games. Yet with Portugal and Spain as prospective last-16 opponents, it remains to be seen what advantage either could grasp from winning the group when they meet in Samara on 25 June (15.00

Michael Bloomberg Will Spend $80 Million on the Midterms. His Goal: Flip the House.

Thursday 05:17 GMT

Michael R. Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York City, has decided to throw his political clout and personal fortune behind the Democratic campaign to take control of the House of Representatives this year, directing aides to spend tens of millions of dollars in an effort to expel Republicans from power.

Walmart "disturbed" its former store is holding immigrant children

Thursday 08:12 GMT

Walmart says it was "surprised and deeply disturbed" to learn that one of its former stores is now being used to house immigrant children separated from their parents.

The world's largest retailer is speaking out amid growing outrage over the former Walmart location in Brownsville, Texas, which the federal government is using to house roughly 1,500 immigrant boys between the ages of 10 to 17. Walmart has no role in the facility, and the company said it didn't know it would be used for this purpose when it sold the building in 2016.

Thursday 08:12 GMT

The immobile, soft-bodied creature was between 0.5 and 2 centimeters across and embedded to a mosslike carpet on the seabed.

Recent actions by the Trump administration — a wave of unprecedentedly large family separations at the border, aggressive trade-war-fueling tariffs and rebukes of allies — have made some feel as though the Barack Obama presidency was an unrecognizable era shrouded in an ancient past.

For months, Steve Schmidt, a longtime Republican strategist, has warned about the degradation of his party, saying the Trump administration is responsible for a “coarsening of this country” and calling the president a “useful idiot” for Russia.
