Trump is speaking in West Virginia where he is campaigning for Republican candidates ahead of Tuesday's midterm elections. Trump says his administration has "over-performed" on his campaign promises to the American people.
Trump says this year's races will decide whether Republicans will "keep making America great again," or "or whether we let the radical democrats take control of congress and take a giant wrecking ball to our economy and our future."
Trump is trying to help Republicans overcome strong Democratic enthusiasm by highlighting what he claims are the consequences of the GOP losing control of Congress.
The president said if the Democratic leaders, including the Senate Minority Leader who he called "Crying Chuck Schumer" take power, they will erase all the gains his administration has made.
Tree of Life Rabbi: Trump is Always Welcome Maggie.ren 2018-10-292K views "Three people from Dor Hadash, one of the synagogues in our building, ran down the stairs. As they ran down the stairs, I could see them from the rear of my sanctuary. Another round of what I now knew was gunfire came out. I can't tell you how I knew it was gunfire because I have never heard gunfire before, but just something told me that this was some sort of semi-automatic weapon. At that time I instructed my congregants to drop to the floor, do not utter a sound, and don't move. Our pews are thick hulled oak, and I thought perhaps there's some protection there. The people that were in the front of my sanctuary, I quickly tried to usher them up to the front out some doors in the front towards exits or towards a closet, some place that they could hide, some place safe. I turned back to see if I could help the remaining eight people in the back of my congregation. At that time I could hear the gunfire getting louder. It was no longer safe for me to be there, and I had to leave them. One of the eight was shot and she's survived her wounds. The other seven of my congregants were gunned down in my sanctuary. There was nothing I could do."
Immigrant Caravan Reaches Arriaga, Mexico Maggie.ren 2018-10-27142 views Members of the migrant caravan have begun arriving in Arriaga, Mexico. This is just the latest stop on their exhausting trek towards the United States. It's actually one of the longest journeys today, about 16 miles and people we encounter on the road were absolutely spent. Those who could not find a car to ride on top of, or a bus to jump on, had to walk. And in the heat of the day they left very early. But as soon as the sun came up they became incredibly hot. Their shoes were falling apart and people said they were just exhausted. It's unclear how many will be able to complete this journey but there are still thousands of people here. And even though they have heard about the threats from Donald Trump that he is sending the military to theU.S. border with Mexico, that he will not let anybody in this caravan cross into the United States, they say they'll continue to persist... that the conditions back in their home countries, particularly in Honduras where so many of the people from this migrant caravan hail from or do not allow them to return. It's simply too dangerous, too corrupt and there is no future there. So they continue to head forward not knowing exactly what awaits them in the United States.
Trump responds to Cesar Sayoc's Arrest Maggie.ren 2018-10-2650 views Trump:”I would like to begin today’s remarks by providing an update on the packages and devices that have been mailed to high-profile figures throughout our Country, and a media org. I am pleased to inform you that law enforcement has apprehended the suspect and taken him into custody.”
Man arrested in connection with suspicious packages Maggie.ren 2018-10-26141 views Late thursday and early friday two more suspicious packages were found -- bringing the total of mailed explosives discovered this week to 12. Friday morning-- authorities found a suspicious package at a midtown manhattan postal facility in new york city. It was addressed to former national intel chief james clapper in care of cnn. According to a law enforcement official... The suspicious package is similar to the other packages. Also... A package addressed to democratic senator cory booker was intercepted in florida thursday night. The fbi says it is "Similar in appearance to the others." The packages are the latest to be sent to prominent democrats and critics of president trump. Authorities are treating the bombs as a domestic terrorism matter.
Thousands of men, women and children, mostly from Honduras, spent another rough night in the town of Mapastepec in Chiapas state, still more than 1,100 miles (1,770 km) from the U.S. border.
Migrants began departing Mapastepec in the wee hours of the morning, fanning out for 30 kilometres (18 miles) along a road towards Pijijiaan.
During the afternoon, the caravan will rest in Pijijiapan for the day, before setting out to Tonala or Arriaga, where they will catch a freight train to Oaxaca and Veracruz.
Their trek has drawn the ire of U.S. President Donald Trump, who has used the migrant caravan to fire up support for his Republican party in Nov. 6 congressional elections.
It has also prompted Washington to put pressure on the Mexican government to halt the migrants' progress.
The caravan, which began as a march of a few hundred people from the crime-wracked Honduran city of San Pedro Sula on Oct. 13, swelled into the thousands as it was joined by migrants from El Salvador, Nicaragua and Guatemala.
Mexican immigration authorities have told the migrants they will not be able to cross illegally into the United States.
Panda painting pictures in Austria Maggie.ren 2018-10-230 views Yang Yang, a female panda in Vienna's Tiergarten Schonbrunn zoo who took up her bamboo paintbrush earlier this year, has begun to paint images that her keepers say resemble other zoo animals.
Zoologist Eveline Dungl shows off paintings by Yang Yang in which she says she can recognise a drinking giraffe and a chicken. Other paintings resemble an elephant and a swan, keepers say.
Dungl says Yang Yang has a lot of fun making the paintings, and her technique depends on how she feels during the day - sometimes she makes big sweeping movements, while at other times she only moves the brush very gradually.
Yang Yang's paintings are sold to raise money to finance a book in English and German about the zoo's pandas.
Global interest in her paintings and the book grew to such an extent that the zoo has started a crowd-funding campaign where funders can bid for rewards to get their copy 'signed' by Yang Yang among other prizes.
The book will feature photographs by Daniel Zupanc, who has been photographing the zoo's pandas for a decade.
Yang Yang and her mate Long Hui arrived in 2003 and had five offspring together. Their cub Fu Long, born in 2007, was the first panda to be born without human intervention in Europe.
For the moment, their twin cubs Fu Feng and Fu Ban still live with their mother in Vienna, but will move back to China like the rest of their siblings under an agreement with Chinese authorities. Long Hui died in 2016.
