"At present, the public who use the online system to renew their licence and road tax can get the documents for the transaction at a special counter at any RTD branch," he said. At the event today, 150 RTD staff of various ranks and from different divisions representing the total of 565 RTD staff in Kedah took and signed the pledge as a sign of their commitment to abstain from corruption. "After this, I will encourage all branch heads to hold this pledge-taking event at their own premises to convince the public that the RTD is fully committed to fighting corruption as this department is one of the most at risk. "I want to stress that with the no-gift policy, all officers under me must declare the gifts they received. We do not want anyone to give gifts to individuals which would give a negative perception of the department," he said. — Bernama

Encounter considered more successful than their first but was noteworthy for its sombre tone Pope Francis once said that Christians must have “cheerful faces and eyes full of joy”. But there was little evidence of those emotions as Donald Trump descended on the Vatican on Wednesday for his first face-to-face meeting with the Argentinian pontiff. The encounter was ultimately considered a success following a rocky start to the pair’s relationship last year, when Francis questioned Trump’s Christian credentials. But despite a warm trading of gifts and humorous exchange between Pope Francis and the first lady, Melania Trump – in which the pope asked if she fed him a popular kind of Slovenian cake – the meeting was noteworthy for its sombre tone at the start.

Trump was given some literature about peace which he lied about planning to read. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://www.tytnetwork.com/join "President Donald Trump met with Pope Francis for the first time on Wednesday, and, as customary for visits between dignitaries, the two men exchanged gifts. In a not-so-subtle nod to Trump’s shaky track record on environmental issues, Francis gave the U.S. president a copy of his 2015 encyclical on the environment, “Laudato Si.” As his offering, Trump saw fit to present the pontiff with a first-edition set of writings by Martin Luther King Jr. In some ways, the gesture was fitting. Francis spoke about King’s civil rights legacy during his address to Congress in 2015, and he frequently preaches on topics like nonviolence and the perils of capitalism, which were also close to King’s heart.

The article went on to give praise to Melissa McCarthys Sean Spicer impression (focusing on her physical comedy gifts), but then argued, The rest of last nights mostly political episode was a series of riffs on the easiest possible joke you could make about anything Trump does: hes stupid and hes sad and he doesnt know what hes doing. A review on The Ringer of McCarthys turn at hosting the show in May pointed out that as this season went on, the writers seemed to struggle to cover Trump in a meaningful way. SNL is at its best when it uses current events as a segue into comedy, rather than comedy as a means of commenting on current events, wrote Alison Herman. That speaks to a larger truth about Saturday Night Live: Often, the show appears to do political sketches more out of obligation than passion.

’” “Complying with the United States Constitution is not an optional exercise, but a requirement for serving as our nation’s President,” Cummings added. “If President Trump believes that identifying all of the prohibited foreign emoluments he is currently receiving would be too challenging or would harm his business ventures, his options are to divest his ownership or submit a proposal to Congress to ask for our consent.” Chaffetz and Cummings had also asked the Trump Organization for a more complete account of how it would track and publicly report the donations to the Treasury, as well as whether donations would be claimed by the company as tax deduction gifts. And they asked for documents showing which Trump properties would be donating profits from foreign government sources. But in his May 11 reply to the lawmakers, Sorial explained that those details arent ready for release yet.

President Donald Trump visited Wednesday with Pope Francis, one of his highest profile feuding partners from last year’s campaign, exchanging gifts in a meeting that the president labeledfantastic.” Trump’s stop at the Vatican comes amid an eight-day, multi-nation trip, his first as president. Trump also met Wednesday with Italian political leaders, but the visit with Pope Francis was widely considered one of the trip’s crucial moments, given the rhetoric the two men had hurled at one another from across the Atlantic during the presidential election. The president was effusively gracious to the pope throughout the meeting, according to the traveling pool of reporters who were allowed to observe some of Trump’s time with him, thanking him repeatedly as they exchanged gifts. Trump again told the pope, Thank you. Thank you. I won't forget what you said,” as their meeting came to a close.
