And we will also report this to the regulator saying that these banks have not complied.“ Between November and December last year, SWIFT India started engaging banks to generate awareness about the new framework. This framework will be released to member banks by the first quarter of the next financial year. While SWIFT will start collecting details on these mandatory controls from Q2 2017, the enforcement of mandatory requirements will start from January 2018. SWIFT will then conduct inspections from internal and external auditors to ensure compli ance of these controls. Applying these standards will help raise the security bar for customers on the SWIFT network and support to prevent and detect fraudulent use of their infrastructure. Implementation of these standards will also increase security awareness and education in the on-going fight against cyber-related wire fraud.

“This moment is your moment, it belongs to you,” Trump said. “The people become the rulers of this nation again.” A light rain fell as the 70-year-old Trump, the oldest-ever elected U.S. chief executive, finished his speech, waving to the crowd. In echoes from his long campaign for the White House, the Republican Trump painted a bleak picture in his inaugural address of workers who have been left behind in the world’s largest economy, buffeted by global economic changes they have been powerless to overcome. These were voters who gave him the edge in key states, U.S. political analysts say, and handed him an unexpected win in the November election over Democrat Hillary Clinton, who watched from a nearby seat at the U.S. Capitol as he became the American leader.

You know why, the show of strength. It's the head of state's show of military strength, MSNBC's Chris Matthews replied. Maddow called Trump's military request embarrassing, saying the only president without public service or military experience wants to show off the military the most. Is this a small hands thing you think? Is this a small hands phenomenon? Matthews asked. You got multiple deferments from the war that happened when you were in your prime and then you want to show off the military once you're in office? Maddow asked. Maddow's Red Square comparison was a reference to the city square in Moscow, where the Soviet Union held many military style parades in the 20th century. Since Trump won the election last November, Democrats have accused Russia's President Vladimir Putin of interfering in the U.

Trump's personal Twitter feed immediately filled up with highlights from the speech (“BUY AMERICAN HIRE AMERICAN) while his new, government @POTUS account remained silent and bare—an early sign that Trump plans to keep being himself even as he occupies the role of commander-in-chief. His son Donald Trump Jr. promised that Trump is taking in all the gravity of the day, and the duty he now carries. “He’s been humbled by the whole process,” his son told MSNBC. “And you know, whether he shows that outwardly or not is, you know, is one thing. Here are five takeaways from Trump’s sui generis Inauguration Day. There is no pivot. He didnt become “more presidential” when he clinched the Republican nomination. And he didnt discover an off-ramp to the high road after he won the election last November in the upset of a lifetime. If you punched him during the transition, the president-elect still punched back.

It was these voters who gave him the edge in key states, U.S. political analysts say, to hand him an unexpected win in the November election over Democrat Hillary Clinton, a former U.S. secretary of state who watched from a nearby seat at the U.S. Capitol as he became the American leader. WATCH: Trump takes the oath of office "Washington flourished but the people did not share in its wealth," Trump said. "Politicians prospered but the jobs left and the factories closed." "This American carnage stops right here and right now," he declared. Trump vowed to restore jobs lost to overseas ventures, while boosting U.S. employment with reconstruction of the country's deteriorating roads, bridges and other infrastructure. "So to all Americans, hear these words," he said. "You will never be ignored again." Trump touched only briefly on U.S. foreign policies, saying that America would seek friendship with the world while recognizing that countries abroad had a right to govern themselves as they see fit.

He delivered the speech slowly and with deliberate hand gestures. Trump spoke of “mothers and children trapped in poverty,” “rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones,” “the crime and the gangs and the drugs” and a state of infrastructure in “disrepair and decay.” “The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed all across the world,” he said. The ominous descriptions of the state of the union dont line up with the reality lived by many Americans after years of steady, if slow, economic growth and a low unemployment rate that has dipped below 5 percent. But those same words helped Trump tap into the unease and anxiety of working-class voters that propelled him to a surprise victory in November. With Trump’s swearing-in, Republicans now control both the legislative and executive branches of government.

Snyder describes Hitler’s ideology as a myth of racialist struggle in which “there are really no values in the world except for the stark reality that we are born in order to take things from other people.” Or as we often hear these days, that acting in accordance with this principle is the “smart” thing to do. Like many far right figures before and after, Hitler aimed to restore a state of nature that for him was a perpetual state of race war for imperial dominance. After the November election, Snyder wrote a profile of Hitler , a short piece that made no direct comparisons to any contemporary figure. But reading the facts of the historical case alarmed most readers. A few days later, the historian appeared on a Slate podcast to discuss the article, saying that after he submitted it, “I realized there was more…. there are an awful lot of echoes.

The new president was to deliver an inaugural address lasting about 20 minutes centered on the campaign themes that he used in his improbable November election victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton. Clinton attended the ceremony with her husband, former President Bill Clinton. It will be optimistic. It will be visionary, but it's going to be philosophical, his spokesman, Sean Spicer, said of the speech, speaking to NBC on Friday morning. Trump, 70, takes over a country divided after a bitter election campaign. A wealthy New York businessman and former reality TV star, he will set the country on a new, uncertain path at home and abroad. It all begins today! he wrote in a note on Twitter at about 7:30 a.m. on Friday I will see you at 11:00 A.M. for the swearing-in. THE MOVEMENT CONTINUES THE WORK BEGINS! Away from the Capitol, masked activists ran through the streets smashing windows with hammers at a McDonald’s restaurant, a Starbucks coffee shop and Bobby Van’s Grill steakhouse several blocks from the White House.
