NEW DELHI: For the little over three minutes that Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan spoke on Wednesday, headsets at the stately Hyderabad House that provide translation of speeches in foreign languages, were silent.

WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump began recasting America’s role in the global economy Monday, canceling an agreement for a sweeping trade deal with Asia as one of his first official White House actions. After meeting with business executives to discuss the U.S. manufacturing industry, Trump headed to the Oval Office to sign an executive order formally ending the United States’ participation in the TransPacific Partnership.

Railways suspects sabotage

Kuneru (Vizianagaram): A small 15-inch gap in the rail line proved to be a death trap for 42 passengers on board the Jagadalpur-Bhuvaneswar Hirakhund Express which met with an accident near Kuneru railway station under Komarada mandal of Vizianagaram district, about 160km from Visakhapatnam, in the zero hours of Saturday/Sunday.

WASHINGTON: The White House vowed on Sunday to fight the news media “tooth and nail” over what officials see as unfair attacks on President Donald Trump, setting a tone that could ratchet up a traditionally adversarial relationship to a new level of rancor.

President Donald Trump used his first full day in office to wage war on the media, accusing news organizations of lying about the size of his inauguration crowd as Saturday’s huge protests served notice that a vocal and resolute opposition would be a hallmark of his presidency. With Americans taking to the streets in red and blue states alike to emphatically decry a president they consider reprehensible and, even, illegitimate, Trump visited the Central Intelligence Agency for a stream-of-consciousness airing of grievances – including against journalists, whom he called “theRead More
