High-powered aides to Donald Trump pressed for funding of a Mexico border wall Sunday as a looming spending showdown in Congress threatens to shut down the US government on the president's 100th day in office. Building the wall was Trump's signature campaign promise, and the White House appeared determined to get Congress to approve a down payment as part of a bigger bill to keep the US government funded. White House budget chief Mick Mulvaney said the administration is prepared to make concessions to Democrats on health care reform in order to get the wall money. But if the wall isn't funded, will the president veto the larger spending bill, risking a government shutdown on Saturday -- coincidentally Trump's 100th day in office? "Don't know yet," Mulvaney said on Fox News Sunday. "We are asking for our priorities and importantly we are offering to give Democrats some of their priorities as well.

Nick Raynsford , former local government minister, and Mike Geddes respond to comments by and about the city’s former chief executive Sir Howard Bernstein Sir Howard Bernstein has achieved a great deal in his time as chief executive of Manchester, so it is sad to see him demeaning his standing by factually incorrect and politically tendentious comments on funding and devolution for his city during the lifetime of the last Labour government ( Living for the city , G2, 19 April). Contrary to his claim that “Labour ministers didnt want to give us much money”, Manchester benefited from substantial and sustained increases in local government funding during the period of Labour government, a pattern that came to an abrupt end when Sir Howard’s “top guyGeorge Osborne became chancellor in 2010. Sir Howard claims that “when we had a Labour government, Manchester never had devolution”.

During the 2008 campaign, then-Sen. Barack Obama, whom Netanyahu viewed with suspicion, traveled to Israel to demonstrate sympathy for Israelis within rocket-range of Gaza while steering clear of showing much empathy for the Palestinians. In 2012, Republican nominee Mitt Romney tried to exploit the tense Obama-Netanyahu relationship by stopping in Israel to win a tacit endorsement from Netanyahu. The 2016 campaign was no exception with both Clinton and Trump stressing their love of Israel in their appearances before AIPAC. Money, of course, has become the lifeblood of American politics – and American supporters of Israel have been particularly strategic in how they have exploited that reality. One of Israel’s most devoted advocates, casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, has poured millions of dollars in “dark money” into political candidates and groups that support Israel’s interests.

To believe our lives are inextricably linked with others is lovely. To live out that belief can be hard. It becomes difficult to set priorities when so much is under attack. People make decisions about this all the time. With money: pay rent or buy food? With energy: fight for clean water or fight for racial equality? And in spite of knowing that these things overlap that environmental racism means one cannot fight for clean water without also fighting for racial equality, or that poverty means facing both food precarity and housing insecurity simultaneously we find ourselves making these choices nonetheless. There is simply not enough of ourselves to go around, and under inundation, even less. This may be why my poor white friends turned to Trump (“it’s about time we were seen”), why my white liberal friends turned to something else (“the world is ending”), my black friends of all socio-economic statuses turned to protest (“we have been here before”), and my undocumented students turned to sleeping in my office while ICE raided the Beach Flats.

U.S. President Donald Trump made a new push Sunday for construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border to thwart illegal immigration, with funding for the controversial barrier at the forefront of White House discussions with lawmakers to avert a partial government shutdown at the end of the week. Trump wants initial funding for the wall, a key campaign promise in his run to the White House, included in the budget to finance government spending to the end of September, but opposition Democrats remain adamantly against its construction. The U.S. government runs out of operating funds at midnight Friday, giving the Republican-controlled Congress and minority Democrats just days to reach a compromise with the White House. "The Democrats don't want money from budget going to border wall despite the fact that it will stop drugs and very bad MS 13 gang members," Trump said in a Twitter comment.

Among the ways his campaign lured young voters was through the release of a video game in which a player pretending to be Melenchon walks the streets and takes money from men in suits. The player is shown in a battle against the rich and powerful. Anger at the establishment is the sentiment driving voters in an election in which security, France’s lagging economy, its 10-percent unemployment rate, and Islamist extremism are issues on the minds of those on the left and on the right. That, analysts say, is what is driving large numbers of people, including some of the middle and upper class residents of Paris, to vote for candidates of the extreme, like Le Pen and Melenchon. “Some of them for the thrill of it. It’s the principle, you know. Like playing Russian roulette, but politically.Some others it would be because they despise the elite of this country,” said Thomas Guénolé, a political analyst in Paris, told VOA.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and White House budget director Mick Mulvaney differed on Sunday in what what they thought President Trump would do regarding a potential government spending bill that didn't include funding for a southern border wall. Kelly said on CNN's State of the Union that he believed President Trump would be "insistent" that any spending bill included such a provision, while Mulvaney said on Fox News Sunday that he didn't know if Trump would sign a bill without wall funds. "If Congress doesn't send President Trump a government funding bill by midnight on Friday, the government will run out of money and a shutdown would begin," CNN host Dana Bash said to Kelly. "So, will the president go to the mat and insist on funding his border wall as part of the stop-gap government funding measure?" "Well, Dana, I think it goes without saying that the president has been pretty straightforward about his desire and the need for a border wall, so I would suspect he'll do the right thing for sure, but I will suspect he'll be insistent on the funding," Kelly said.
