President Donald Trump caused confusion during a Saturday rally in Florida when he said: “You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this?” Trump then mentioned the French cities of Nice and Paris and the Belgian capital, Brussels. The three European cities were all attacked by terrorists over the past two years. Although Trump did not explicitly say it, his remarks were widely perceived in the United States and abroad as suggesting that an attack had occurred Friday night in Sweden. Trump himself attempted toRead More

Mumbai attack mastermind and JuD chief Hafiz Saeed has been listed under Pakistan’s anti-terrorism act by the provincial Punjab government, a tacit acknowledgement of his links to militancy.

Three other men were also added to the list, Abdullah Obaid from Faisalabad, and Zafar Iqbal and Abdur Rehman Abid from the Markaz-i-Taiba, Muridke.

PALM BEACH: President Donald Trump drew fire from Republicans and Democrats alike on Sunday, after he defended a softer stance on Russia, playing down political assassinations and Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine. Trump — now two weeks into his four-year term — showed no signs of yielding to demands from within his own Republican Party to distance himself from President Vladimir Putin, plunging himself into a fresh political firestorm. “I do respect him. Well, I respect a lot of people, but that doesn’t mean I’ll get along with them,” Trump saidRead More
WASHINGTON: The Department of Homeland Security complied with a judge’s orders Saturday and stopped enforcing President Donald Trump’s controversial entry ban, and the fast-moving legal dispute over the president’s powers could land at the nation’s highest court. On Saturday evening, Trump administration lawyers filed a notice to appeal the Seattle federal judge’s decision from Friday night that imposed a temporary, nationwide halt to Trump’s order barring refugees and those from seven majority-Muslim nations from entering the country. While his administration followed the orders of U.S. District Judge James Robart, theRead More
WASHINGTON: Asserting that artificial trade barriers between India and the US would “evaporate” quickly, an Indian-American donor and supporter of US President Donald Trump has said fears about the H-1B overhauling is “overblown” and the issue is unlikely to cause trouble in bilateral ties. “President Trump first and foremost is a businessman. He knows how to grow US as a business. He is pretty clear on the position of US Chambers of Commerce that in order to grow the American economy, you need a lot of IT experts and professionals,”Read More
Judge Ann Donnelly of the U.S. District Court in Brooklyn granted a request from the ACLU to stay deportations of those detained on entry to the United States following President Donald Trump’s executive order. After a brief hearing in front of a small audience that filtered in from a crowd of hundreds outside, Donnelly determined that the risk of injury to those detained by being returned to their home countries necessitated the decision. She seemed to have little patience for the arguments presented by the government, which focused heavily onRead More
US President Donald Trump boasted Saturday that his “very strict” crackdown on Muslim immigration was working “very nicely,” amid mounting resistance to the order which has been branded by many as blatantly discriminatory. In an executive order signed Friday, Trump halted the arrival of refugees for at least 120 days and imposed tough new controls on travelers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen for the next three months. “It’s working out very nicely. You see it at the airports, you see it all over,” Trump told reporters, afterRead More
RIYADH: Saudi Arabia unveiled its next-generation fighter-bomber on Wednesday, nearly two years after beginning a controversial air war in Yemen. At a ceremony and air show in the Saudi capital, a hangar opened to reveal one of the F-15SA Eagle aircraft made by US manufacturer Boeing. A missile was attached to the belly of the plane displayed against the backdrop of a giant Saudi flag. Watched by King Salman and his son, Defence Minister and Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the unveiling at the King Faisal Air Academy wasRead More
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. As the prince began to speak after Prime Minister Narendra Modi had made his address, politicians and journalists present began to look around bewildered. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley was seen pressing keys on the small remote control in the hope of landing on a channel where the Prince’s speech in Arabic wasRead More
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. The move was largely symbolic — the deal was unlikely to make it through Congress — but served to signal that Trump’s tough talk on tradeRead More
