“I’m the governor of New Jersey, Matt. I’ve made it really clear to the president that it’s my desire to finish my time as governor of New Jersey,” Christie told “Today” anchor Matt Lauer, who inquired if Christie might be interested in a job like White House chief of staff, a position currently occupied by former Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus. “Any speculations about that kind of stuff is just not something that I’m going to address because I’ve got a job, and I enjoy doing it and I want to keep it.” Amid the constant swirl of controversy that has surrounded the Trump administration from almost the moment it began, much of the criticism, including some from unnamed White House officials speaking to reporters, has been directed at Priebus. Appearing last weekend on “Fox News Sunday,” Priebus contended that “I’m not in any trouble” and chalked up reports of infighting among White House staffers as “gossip.

‘Right now there’s not much to talk about, OK?’ Schumer told POLITICO in an interview last week.” HEALTH CARE AGAIN: From POLITICO’s Rachael Bade, Kyle Cheney and John Bresnahan: “House Republicans were out in force Tuesday insisting they’re not giving up their push to repeal and replace Obamacare. Privately, though, they’re nowhere near a consensus on how to move forward. After Friday’s fiasco — when Speaker Paul Ryan pulled the House GOP health care plan because it didnt have the votes to passRepublicans on Tuesday vowed to come up with a Plan B. Ryan told reporters some lawmakers who opposed the bill wanted to continue talks to get to ‘yes.’”

KUALA LUMPUR: There are DAP members that are "restless" with how the party is being led, but have no courage to voice it out, Barisan Nasional Strategic Communications Director Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan (pix) claimed. He said many grassroot members were not satisfied with the dictatorial role played by DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang, who is also the father of DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng. He added that it did not take a genius to learn that Lim was actually in charge of the party. "We know grassroots DAP is jittery and restless about the strong arm tactics in the party (but) they don't dare (to talk). No one dares. "For those who dare they just quit the party like what happened recently. They quit because they could not stand this trauma, the dictatorial leadership of Lim," he told reporters when contacted. Abdul Rahman also said that he did not need a free tuition course on "strategic" as offered by Lim earlier.

BUTTERWORTH: Residents of Taman Cantik and Taman Bagan here are crying foul after suffering from three flash floods since last Monday. The latest to affect them was on Tuesday evening when heavy rain fell in various locations around Penang. A spokesman for Taman Cantik, Lim Chiew Lai, 53, said he and his wife have been cleaning his home non-stop since March 20. He said he had commissioned two walls, about 30cm tall, at the front and back of his house but to no avail as the water still continued to pour in. "My house becomes a swimming pool when it rains heavily," he said when met by reporters today in the area where there are 250 houses while Taman Bagan has 100 houses. Lim said the problem has been getting worse since he moved in 20 years ago as his house would only be flooded after two hours of rain then. "Now the water comes in after just 15 minutes of rain," he said and called upon the state government to address the issue.

May's notice of the UK's intention to leave the bloc under Article 50 of the EU's Lisbon Treaty is due to be hand-delivered to Tusk in Brussels by Tim Barrow, Britain's permanent representative to the EU, at around 1130 GMT. May, who on Tuesday signed the Brexit letter and spoke to German Chancellor Angela Merkel about the future talks, will update the British parliament on Wednesday while Tusk is due to give a briefing to reporters. 'See EU Later' The Sun, Britain's most popular newspaper, projected giant messages to Europe including "Dover and Out", "Goodbye" and "See EU Later" onto England's iconic white cliffs of Dover that face the continent. In the French media, the response was less celebratory. The Libération newspaper led with the headline: "We miss you already! Or do we..." over a picture of a guard wearing a bearskin hat, a traditional symbol of Britain.

"We can appoint a body free from government influence to monitor, such as the Selangor Select Committee on Competency, Accountability and Transparency (Selcat) or the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC)," he said. The call for asset declaration in Selangor was first mooted by state assembly speaker Hannah Yeoh in March last year. At present, only Penang and Selangor have implemented this policy for elected representatives, but only on a voluntary basis. Later when met by reporters, Datuk Sulaiman Abdul Razak (BN-Permatang) said he supported the suggestion but questioned if it would ever be brought up as a bill in the assembly. He noted how the state government had proposed for the bill to be tabled previously, but nothing came of it. "We (Barisan Nasional) have no problem. I believe, if it is debated, it will be approved. But I am disappointed that the bill was apparently withdrawn in the last seating.

KUALA LUMPUR: Trading momentum has been good so far this year, with about RM4.7 billion worth of foreign inflow, said Bursa Malaysia Bhd CEO Datuk Tajuddin Atan. "A lot of trading happened in the first quarter. March 13 to 17 saw fantastic inflow of foreign funds of around RM1.7 billion that week alone. Up to date, around RM4.7 billion foreign flow is coming in," he told reporters at its AGM today. While these are not completely fresh funds, Tajuddin said momentum can be seen from both foreign and retail investors and is hopeful that the trend will continue. "The dividend yield play within our Bursa market place is quite strong, I think the stabilisation of the ringgit was the key and with that, the view, on conversion basis, a fairly good discounted price to enter the stock market. That being the case, there are also other factors that we monitor," he added.

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia is open to the possibility of establishing more trade ties with the UK post-brexit, said International Trade and Industry Minister II Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan. "We hope we can work with the UK to achieve some trade integration, whether Malaysia-UK direct or through the Commonwealth platform," he told reporters at the memorandum of understanding(MOU) signing ceremony between SME Corp and its strategic partners. However, he said it is too early to say whether this will be in the free-trade direction, adding that dynamics will be different with the UK now being on its own, as it was previously subjected to the approval of the European Union(EU). On Tuesday, UK Prime Minister Theresa May triggered Article 50 and signed the letter which will be delivered by an envoy to the president of the EU, marking the start of the two-year process of the country's formal exit from the EU.

Nature has flung her worst at the people of north Queensland, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull told reporters. It is now our job to make sure that every agency pulls together ... to provide support to the people of north Queensland who have had a very tough day and night. There were no reports of deaths from the storm. One man was injured after a wall collapsed in the town of Proserpine, Stewart said. He was in stable condition. Proserpine was one of the worst-hit areas, along with the resort town of Airlie Beach and the town of Bowen. There was also serious damage to resorts on the idyllic Whitsunday Islands, a popular tourist destination, Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said. Around 200 people vacationing on Daydream Island were awaiting evacuation, and water supplies were running low. There would be nothing more tragic than waking up and seeing walls that have come in from your houses, roofs that have gone off, and debris that is lying across your roads, Palaszczuk told reporters.

Adam Schiff to call for Nunes to step away from the Russia investigation. “Why would I do that?” Nunes asked a small group of reporters at the Capitol on Tuesday. “Everything is moving as is,” he added, saying scheduling an open hearing would be “a logical first step” after a meeting with Comey. But Democrats said the committee's work has stalled. “To suggest that we need to hear from Comey and Rogers is to suggest that there's only two hours in the day and we have to make a decision,” said Rep. Eric Swalwell, a Democratic committee member. “We could have done both.” Swalwell said he asked Nunes to meet with all committee members to diffuse the situation. “Just to sit in the same room and talk about what he saw, who he received it from and how it's relevant for what we're trying to do with the Russia investigation. I think that would take a lot of tension out of this process,” he said.
