US lawmakers jolted by Syria briefing, Pentagon warns of IS resurgence

  The United States military's hands-off approach on the ground in Syria is ceding influence to Russia and Iran, a top lawmaker warned on Tuesday, as the Pentagon said it has seen the Islamic State (IS) "resurge" in parts of the country.   Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman Bob Corker said Moscow and Tehran have "significant influence" in the war-ravaged Middle Eastern nation due to their years-long commitment, while President Donald Trump signals the US could be headed for the exits there.   When asked whether he wanted a greater US troop presence to shape events in Syria, Corker was somber.   "I think the administration's plans are ...Keep on reading: US lawmakers jolted by Syria briefing, Pentagon warns of IS resurgence.....»»

Families keep trying to cross US-Mexico border, wall or no wall

MCALLEN, Texas --- Maria Orbelina Cortez says she fled El Salvador for the US after her husband attacked her and knocked a pan of scalding oil onto her youngest son's head. After quietly planning for months, she took the 3-year-old boy and his two brothers and headed north without telling her husband. As she spoke in the yard of a Catholic Charities shelter in South Texas, the boy played nearby. He had a hairless scar on top of his head in the shape of a jagged, capital "T." "I will always feel culpable," said Orbelina, 30. "Always." President Donald Trump's push for a $5.7 billion wall --- a demand that triggered the longest government shutdown in history --- is unlikely on...Keep on reading: Families keep trying to cross US-Mexico border, wall or no wall.....»»

Trump’s burger-fest brings roasting from late-night TV hosts

WASHINGTON --- Junk food for athletes? President Donald Trump's offer of greasy burgers and fries to the college football champion Clemson Tigers brought a roasting from late-night TV hosts. Trump, a fast-food lover, said he paid for the meal himself because of the partial government shutdown, which has led to furloughs among federal workers, including at the White House. Otherwise, he joked, first lady Melania Trump and Karen Pence, Vice President Mike Pence's wife, would be making salads. "I had a choice. Do we have no food for you, because we have a shutdown?" Trump told the team gathered Monday in the White House East Room. "Or do we give you some little quick salads tha...Keep on reading: Trump’s burger-fest brings roasting from late-night TV hosts.....»»

Trump congratulates Clemson for its perfect season with fast food

By Laurie Kellman, Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump paid tribute to college football champion Clemson for winning the national championship at a White House ceremony Monday evening. Trump said he even paid for their meal of "American fast food" because of the partial government shutdown. He did not disclose the tab. "We went off and we ordered American fast food, paid for by me. Lots of hamburgers, lots of pizza," Trump said after returning to the White House from a trip to New Orleans. "I think they'd like it better than anything we could give." "We have some very large people that like eating, so I think we're going to have a little fun," said the president, a fast food-lover himself. Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said much of the staff that works in the White House residence has been furloughed due to the shutdown, "so the president is personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone's favorite fast foods." An impressive — and highly unusual for the White House — smorgasbord greeted the players in the East Room. Silver trays held stacks of wrapped burgers from Wendy's and boxed burgers from McDonald's, including Big Macs. White House paper cups bearing the presidential seal held the fries. He was serious. pic.twitter.com/fD3oPmZ0kg— Taylor Mason (@taylomason) January 14, 2019 Better pics of the feast 🕯🍔 🍟 pic.twitter.com/mKiFZ7xUjz— Taylor Mason (@taylomason) January 14, 2019 Pizzas, some topped with olives and tomatoes, also were on the menu. Silver bowls held the condiments and stacks of white china plates sat nearby. The Clemson team's visit is its second since Trump took office. The Tigers last visited in June 2017 after their championship run the previous season. Clemson coach Dabo Swinney has nominated this season's undefeated Tigers as the best college team ever. Trump calls them a "great team, an unbelievable team." Trump has routinely sparred with professional athletes during his two years in office. College football has managed to avoid such political controversies, with last year's champion Alabama also visiting the White House......»»
