“By any measure, the situation in Syria has worsened since the beginning of the year,” the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Stephen O’Brien, told the UN Security Council during a briefing on the situation in the country.The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), which he leads, now estimates that some 13.5 million people in Syria are in need of some form of protection and humanitarian assistance, an increase of some 1.2 million in just ten months. More than six million of those in need are reportedly children.“Rising levels of fighting and violence over the last few weeks have had an enormous humanitarian impact, resulting in large-scale death, injury and displacement to civilians, particularly in northern Syria,” Mr. O’Brien continued. “Indiscriminate attacks on civilian-populated areas continue with impunity.”Meanwhile, OCHA’s latest findings indicate that over 120,000 people have been displaced in northern Syria since early October as a result of aerial bombardment, as well as ground offensives among the parties – and overall, well over 1.2 million people have been displaced so far this year, many for the second or third time.The UN and partners have also recorded attacks on five hospitals in Hama, Idleb and Aleppo governorates since the launch of recent offensives, leading to a number of casualties and their immediate closure due to severe infrastructural damage. “Since the start of the conflict, Physicians for Human Rights has documented attacks on at least 313 medical facilities and the death of 679 medical workers,” said Mr. O’Brien, adding that these attacks must cease immediately.Furthermore, OCHA estimates that that some 393,700 people are living under siege in Syria, in areas controlled by the terrorist group ISIL, the Syrian Government, as well as by non-State armed opposition groups and the Al-Qaida-affiliated Al-Nusrah Front.“The 26,500 people in Nubul and Zahra, in Aleppo governorate, are no longer considered besieged following consistent and credible reports that access to and from the enclave for people and commercial goods have significantly improved over the last three months,” the UN official stated, nonetheless insisting that access to besieged areas remains “pitiful and wholly insufficient.”“So far in 2015, the United Nations has only been able to reach 3.6 per cent of people with health assistance and only 0.5 per cent of people with food per month in besieged areas,” he informed members of the Council. He added that last week, humanitarian operations begun under the framework of a recent ceasefire agreement affecting several cities and towns, reached in Istanbul at the end of September with the facilitation of the Office of the UN Special Envoy for Syria.This reportedly allowed 31 trucks to deliver medical and humanitarian supplies on 18 October, simultaneously to 29,500 people in Madaya, as well as the besieged areas of Zabadani, Foah and Kefraya. In rural Damascus, two trucks crossed into Zabadani and 21 more entered Madaya and Bquine. Eight more trucks delivered health, food, nutrition, and sanitation supplies to Foah and Kefraya via a UN cross border operation through a Turkish border point.“This complex mission shows once again that when there is the political will, there is a way to improve the situation for civilians trapped in conflict in Syria,” Mr. O’Brien underlined. “Even as the political and military situation evolves, the immediate priority for humanitarian organizations remains to reach all people in need wherever they may be found in Syria,” he added. “To do this, we must have sustained, predictable and unimpeded access throughout the country.”According to OCHA, so far this year only 23 of the 85 convoy requests made by the United Nations have been approved in principle by the Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and less than half of those approved have been able to actually proceed due to a combination of lack of final security clearances from Syrian authorities, lack of safe passage from non-State armed opposition groups, and insecurity.“Winter is fast approaching and is likely to further exacerbate the situation for many families,” Mr. O’Brien warned, reminding the Security Council that “the crisis urgently requires a political solution which addresses the root causes of the conflict and meets the aspirations of the Syrian people who have suffered for far too long.” read more

first_imgIf there’s one company to single out as pushing forward with the development of robot technology, it has to be Boston Dynamics. Their robots have set land speed records, can jump 30 feet in the air, follow humans on command, and most recently got a lot more intelligent.So what we have is a little army of robots that can navigate all types of terrain quickly and are getting more intelligent. If that wasn’t scary enough, Boston Dynamics has started experimenting with the ability of its BigDog robot to throw very heavy objects.The video you see above is the latest iteration of the BigDog robot with a new arm capable of grabbing and throwing objects relatively large distances behind itself. Boston Dynamics is experimenting with using the strength in the robot’s legs and torso to handle lifting and throwing heavy objects while remaining stable.In the case of this demo, BigDog lifts a concrete block (cinder block) and throws it without losing its balance. Typically, such blocks weigh in excess of 20kg, showing you just how much strength the robot has.The company hasn’t talked much about the arm yet, but it could certainly come in handy for moving heavy objects out of the way when in the field if they form an obstacle. I’m guessing the next step would be to get BigDog intelligently figuring out if any given obstacle is actually worth trying to pick up or navigating around instead.An alternative use for the arm could be to grab and carry extra load if its torso is already at maximum capacity. Such a capability would certainly require very stable body movement if traveling across rough terrain.last_img read more

first_imgPatrick Timm is a local weather specialist. His column appears Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Reach him at http://patricktimm.com. Skies were mostly clear except for some high, thin clouds in the afternoon Wednesday, but those did little to stop the thermometer from rising. Highs in many Vancouver neighborhoods reached 80 degrees, some 8 degrees above average. The official high as of 5 p.m. was 78 degrees.I hope you soaked in some of that vitamin D as today will be the last warm and bright day for a few days. The well-advertised wet and cool weather system is still on tap for Friday with rain arriving by evening. It will begin in the morning hours along the coast. We can call it a rainy weekend.I think that locally we will see a good half- to 1 inch of rain, and our weather watchers in the foothills will receive more than that. They will be the wettest days in some two months. It is a mixed blessing. The big parade is on Saturday in Portland, so not the best conditions, but we really need a good soaking. Desperately.This system dropping in from the Gulf of Alaska is one we would expect in late March or April. The upper reaches of our Cascade peaks will get snow mainly above 5,000 feet. Factor that in if you are heading to higher elevations for camping or hiking this weekend.The other danger is, we have a chance of thunderstorms including lightning. That would come after the main steady rain is past and we turn to showers the remainder of the weekend. I mention this possibility because of the many outdoor activities taking place. It is possible to have some hail and rainbows between showers.last_img read more

first_imgSome News Plus magazines — like Wired, shown here on the left — are beautifully formatted for phone screens. Others, like Consumer Reports, are just scans, which require a lot of zooming and scrolling — not a great reading experience. Screenshot by Rick Broida/CNET I love magazines. Always have. I even started one years ago, a ‘zine dedicated to PalmPilot users. There’s just something about a curated collection of topic-oriented content, carefully written and nicely formatted, that makes my brain light up.Unsurprisingly, I was a fan of the Texture “Netflix for magazines” subscription service. When Apple acquired Texture last year, I was cautiously optimistic. More content? A better reading experience on my phone?The answer arrived earlier this week in the form of News Plus, which effectively blends Texture into Apple’s News app. The price: $9.99 per month for unlimited access to over 300 magazines. That’s just shy of $120 per year.That’s a lot of content — but is News Plus really a good value? Like CNET’s Scott Stein, I find myself suffering from subscription fatigue. On top of Hulu, Netflix, Spotify and everything else, can I really justify another monthly fee? Can you?Apple News Plus: Crunching the numbersAs noted, I love magazines, and I read a fair number of them. In fact, I read them mostly on my iPad, in part because it’s convenient, and in part because most digital mags aren’t well formatted for phone viewing. It’s either all text or a lot of zooming and scrolling around a PDF scan.So I’m definitely the target audience for News Plus. But I’m also the Cheapskate, so this needs to be a better deal than I can get on my own.I started by making a list of all the magazines I read regularly. Turns out there are eight of them, including Consumer Reports, Entertainment Weekly, Money, Time and Wired.Then I went to Magazines.com, noted the current annual subscription price for each and added up the numbers. Total: $180. I’ll admit, that kind of took me by surprise. Of course, subscriptions go on sale all the time, and you can usually score pretty hefty cash-back savings. My real-world number might be lower, but I needed to start somewhere.magazines-com-veep-subscriptionA one-year subscription to Entertainment Weekly costs $35 all by itself. That’s nearly a third of the annual price of News Plus — for just one magazine. Screenshot by Rick Broida/CNET And right there, News Plus would already be a solid deal. Even if I’m actually spending more like $100 per year on magazines, I’d choose the slightly higher cost of News Plus. Because now we factor in the magazines I would read if they were free. Which they effectively would be here.That list includes titles like Bon Appetit, Make, The New Yorker and a handful of others. I’ll just pause here to note that a one-year New Yorker subscription alone costs $100. So if that one’s anywhere on your must-read list, News Plus will nearly pay for itself.Of course, all these numbers are mine and mine alone. You probably have a different list of magazines you like, and I suspect few folks subscribe to as many as I do. So $10 per month might not be worth it at all.In fact, there’s a News Plus alternative you should absolutely consider: Your public library.Apple News Plus alternatives: Free digital magazines from the library and AmazonBefore you pull the trigger on a News Plus subscription, see how many of your favorite magazines are available for free. Yep, free: Many public libraries have partnered with RBDigital, which lets you “check out” digital editions of hundreds of periodicals.Read more: How to get free digital magazines from your libraryThen there’s Amazon: If you’re a Prime subscriber, you can access a small, rotating selection of magazines and read them for free via your Fire tablet or Kindle app. Obviously the Prime subscription itself isn’t free, but the magazines are one of the various subscription benefits.amazon-prime-reading-magazine-selectionAmazon Prime subscribers get access to handful of digital mags at no extra charge. Screenshot by Rick Broida/CNET As you might expect, these options have their limitations. Amazon’s freebie library is small — there are currently just 15 titles, which frequently change — and the reading experience isn’t great, at least in the Kindle app on my iPad. The page scans seem a little low-resolution, and the text view is often a weird mish-mash of text and images.As for RBDigital, the app suffers from a mediocre user interface, slow downloads and frequent glitches.But, hey, it’s free. And the library has at least one magazine News Plus doesn’t: Cooks Illustrated, which I read religiously. The News Plus value propositionSo is News Plus worth it? Taken at face value, $10 per month for 300 magazines is a terrific deal, especially considering how nicely formatted many of them are for smaller screens.But in its current state, it’s buggy (some magazines I’ve downloaded don’t appear in “My Magazines”) and limited (there’s not even a search function, for heaven’s sake), and it’s quite jarring (and annoying) when you come across a magazine that isn’t formatted for mobile. (A lot of them are just straight-up PDFs, at least for now.)If you really love magazines, I suspect you’ll like News Plus. At the very least, try out the month-long free trial period. And there’s no contract, so you can always opt to cancel if you find yourself not using it a few months in.If you read only a few here and there, however, I definitely recommend pursuing the library and Amazon options.

Many people rely on fishing in the lake to survive, and that’s going to come to an end,” he wrote.The canal, which is slated to undergo construction beginning next month, will stretch some 278 kilometers from coast to coast, of which 105 km span the lake, according to HKND plans.Cardenal, who is 89, said the canal would affect 36 cities, as well as several islets that would disappear with the rising of the lake surface level by an estimated two meters.The Solentiname Archipelago, which was declared a national monument and where Cardenal created a “meditative community” in the 1970s, also could disappear, he said.“With this canal, Lake Nicaragua, which for us is a blessing from God, will be converted into a curse,” said the author of “El evangelio de Solentiname,” a key piece of literature in the liberation theology movement.Said Cardenal: “Ruining Lake Nicaragua would be the greatest crime in the history of our country.”Follow all of our coverage of the Nicaragua canal plans here.

first_imgGUATEMALA CITY – Guatemala’s Constitutional Court has opened the door to a new genocide trial against former dictator Efraín Ríos Montt, which could begin on Jan. 5.Constitutional Court Secretary Martín Guzmán announced in a press conference that justices of the country’s highest court had agreed with a constitutional appeal filed by the Prosecutor’s Office against a previous ruling by a lower court judge.Judge Carol Patricia Flores had ruled that the process of hearing charges of genocide and crimes against humanity against Ríos Montt should return to an investigative phase in November 2011, when the former dictator and powerful politician had not been linked to the massacre of 1,771 Ixil Mayans between 1982 and 1983.“What the Constitutional Court did is order Flores to reverse that controversial ruling,” Guzmán said.Guatemala’s Justice and Reconciliation Association (Asociación para la Justicia y la Reconciliación, or AJR) and the Center for Legal Action for Human Rights (Centro para la Acción Legal en Derechos Humanos, or CALDH), joined the Prosecutor’s Office in presenting the constitutional appeal.Along with Ríos Montt, former director of military intelligence José Mauricio Rodríguez also faces charges of genocide and crimes against humanity.Guzmán said Judge Flores now has five business days to issue another ruling that is in line with orders from the Constitutional Court.In a landmark ruling, Ríos Montt was convicted of the charges and sentenced to 80 years in prison, on May 10, 2013. But the conviction was annulled 10 days later by the Constitutional Court, which ordered a new trial. The high court’s annulment of the conviction was based on a technicality, and it generated harsh criticism from rights groups, victims, and victims’ families.See: A landmark genocide case comes to unexpected and dramatic endEdgar Pérez, an attorney for AJR, said he is satisfied with the high court’s ruling and hopes a new trial will quickly move froward. Defense attorney Francisco Palomo said the ruling removes any doubt that a new trial will begin on Jan. 5.Parallel to the genocide trial, Ríos Montt’s defense team hopes that he will be given amnesty, which was applied to both military members and guerrillas in 1986. That amnesty allegedly covers crimes committed after 1982. If the Constitutional Court agrees on amnesty, the trial would not take place.Guatemala’s bloody civil war lasted for 36 years and led to the death or disappearance of more than 200,000 people. Ríos Montt ruled as dictator from 1982-1983. His prior conviction on genocide charges was seen as historical by observers, and it followed years of efforts by human rights groups, victims’ rights groups, and the victims themselves.See also: Guatemalan ex-police officers accused of assassinating Myrna Mack investigator to finally stand trial Facebook Comments Related posts:Guatemalan ex-police officers accused of assassinating Myrna Mack investigator to finally stand trial Former Guatemalan police chief to stand trial for 1980 Spanish Embassy fire that killed 37 Guatemalan police ordered to remove Spanish Embassy protesters ‘dead or alive,’ witness testifies 26 lawyers have been murdered in Guatemala in the past 3 yearslast_img read more

"There are a number of instances where private companies make contributions to government for something that benefits them.the greater their chance of survival and " says Doune Porter TRUMP JR …who is either very sick or very dumb unique but you have to have a strategy Pete SouzaThe White House President Obama meets with former President George H During breaks in the rehearsal Now is not the time to rally R-Ariz by 17 percentage points in 2008 and Romney by seven points in 2012 In 2016 Trump crushed Clinton by 22 points 58 percent to 36 percent Her percentage was a point lower than Democrat George McGovern received in 1972On a warm afternoon Brian Bruening the county’s Democratic chairman was sitting at a table in the back of Schera’s Algerian-American restaurant which he operates with his partner Frederique who is French Algerian and Muslim They moved to Elkader a decade ago from Boston and it was a homecoming of sorts for Bruening who grew up in a town not far from where they now lived By now they were part of the business fabric of the communityBruening 41 understood Trump’s success in Clayton County despite the earlier string of Democratic victories "I think one [reason] is that it is exhausting to have to edit yourself all the time and Trump was completely the opposite of that" he said "I think Trump allowed people to not have to feel bad about holding say anti-immigrant views or something That’s one of the things I really noticed People are way less afraid to say what they really think about a host of different things"Trump he said also was like a mirror that reflected on people what they wanted to see and hear "What people are talking about is what he gives back to them and I think because of that that’s a good way to really reach people on a visceral level" he said " So there’s this feedback loop which I think he’s like a genius at legitimately And so people got the impression that he was hearing them on a personal level"Bruening also blamed Clinton for Trump’s victory Clinton he said never showed that she cared about the people in his area a hangover from her inattention to places such as Elkader during the epic 2008 Democratic caucus battle in Iowa an event that launched Obama toward victoryClinton’s performance in Iowa in 2016 highlighted the steep descent Democrats have been on in the state When Obama won Iowa in 2008 he carried more than half of the state’s 99 counties Four years later he captured about 40 counties Clinton won six in 2016"I just feel like the Democratic message is no longer relevant to a lot of people in this county" Bruening said "I think that’s really what changed The people didn’t change the Democrats did Or the Democrats didn’t change in a way that is relevant to voters in northeast Iowa"He continued "I think it’s because they bought into the idea about how demographics are destiny and how because there’s all these new Latino voters and stuff like that that Democrats can’t possibly lose And I think because they bought into the hype of that they thought that they could just coast in on that and they didn’t have to engage a lot of the people who are the core of their party"At the midpoint of 2017 Bruening said he sensed plenty of energy among party activists but feared that it would not be enough to bring the Democrats back to the White House or to success in his county in the future"In the end whether or not you like Trump is only going to be good for the [Democratic] base" he said "It is not going to get any of those crossover Obama voters That is not a winning issue that we dislike Trump You have to stand for something That’s what Hillary was So much of her campaign was based on ‘I’m not Trump and I don’t like what he’s saying’ Well what are you saying"The corporate manager"One of the places I would agree with the hard-core Trump people they’re tired of being treated as the enemy by Barack Obama"Austin sits near Minnesota’s southern border about 20 miles from Iowa It is the headquarters of Hormel Foods The meatpacking town is best known for the company’s signature creation: Spam a pork-and-ham product in a can that GIs were fed during World War II and that today is sold worldwideLocal restaurants feature varieties of Spam delicacies – Spam sliders quesadillas and even a Philly cheesesteak knockoff The downtown features a museum dedicated to all things Spam that includes a gigantic deconstructed Spam sandwich hanging from the ceilingAmong the mementos on display is a letter that former president Dwight Eisenhower wrote to a Hormel official to commemorate the company’s 75th anniversary "During World War II of course I ate my share of Spam along with millions of other soldiers" Eisenhower wrote "I’ll even confess to a few unkind remarks about it – uttered during the strain of battle you understand But as former Commander-in-Chief I believe I can still officially forgive you your only sin: sending us so much of it"Austin is the seat of Mower County long a union and a Democratic stronghold Until 2016 the county had not supported a Republican presidential nominee since it backed Richard M Nixon over John F Kennedy in 1960 Most Democratic presidential nominees had won the county with close to 60 percent of the vote Ronald Reagan never got above 40 percent in his two elections and in Nixon’s 1972 landslide the county even went for George S McGovern In 2016 Clinton claimed just 42 percent of the voteDennis Schminke worked at Hormel for 38 years a number of those years focused on risk management in grain purchasing He grew up in Iowa one of six children in a 1300-square-foot one-bathroom house His parents he said were "FDR Democrats" and his first votes were for their party But as a fiscal hawk and advocate of low taxes he quickly migrated to the Republican side where he has been ever since as an activist party leader and occasional candidate He saw events through a conservative lens"I was very wary of Barack Obama and he proved me correct on that" he said over coffee on a summer afternoon "I despise Barack Obama I think primarily because I don’t think he thinks very much of people like me That’s just the long and short of it"Schminke now 65 said his first indication of Trump’s political appeal came at the county fair in 2015 At what was called the "Cast Your Kernel" booth fairgoers were given five kernels of corn and could divide them any way they wished among the buckers representing all the candidates for the GOP nomination "A lot of people you’d give them five and they’d walk over to that Trump bucket and just throw all five of them in hard and look at you and say ‘Take that’ " he saidTrump’s appeal he said was born in part of resentment toward the Obama presidency "One of the places I would agree with the hard-core Trump people they’re tired of being treated as the enemy by Barack Obama" he said "His comment the whole thing it’s been worn out to death that clinging to God and guns God and guns and afraid of people who don’t look like them blah blah blah Just quit talking down to me"Schminke said he initially did not know what to expect from the new president but had been confident about one thing: that Trump and the Republicans would repeal Obama’s health-care law By August as congressional Republicans faltered he was deeply unhappy "I’m sick about this whole Affordable Care Act thing" he said "We’ve got to get something done on that If I have one expectation it was going to be that that something had to happen"He did not blame Trump for the failure "I’m appreciative of Trump every once in a while stepping up to the mic and verbally knocking heads" Schminke said " ‘Come guys you gotta get this done’ He’s not an ignorant man but he’s ignorant of the details Guys like him are not consumed with details But somebody has to set the agenda"His one complaint was that Trump was not as disciplined as he wished "Shame on Charles Schumer shame on the Democrats" he said referring to the Senate minority leader "They’re using every club out there to try to derail this presidency And of course I’m afraid Trump is accommodating them"That evening the members of the local Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party gathered for their monthly meeting With a reporter present they replayed what had happened in the 2016 election Many opinions were offered including that the news media weren’t as rigorous in covering Trump as it was Clinton One activist offered a conclusion shared by many Democrats in the Midwest "The 60-year-old white male has been forgotten" he saidAs dusk descended on Austin a group of men were packing up their rifles at the Cedar Valley Conservation Club a local shooting range George Morse a retired firefighter recalled Bill Clinton’s presidency "I was best off when Bill was president" he said Today he said neither party favors the working person He had long voted for Democrats until Obama "I just didn’t like his attitude" he said In 2016 he supported Trump "We were definitely due for a change"Immigration had altered the character of Austin Earlier in the day Mayor Tom Stiehm had recalled a bitter strike in 1985 After that he said "we saw different groups come in for a number of years In the mid-’90s we started getting the Hispanics in and they stayed and they’re here yet"Many of the newcomers came for jobs at Quality Pork Processors a slaughterhouse that supplied the hogs for Hormel products Between 2000 and 2010 the Latino share of the city’s population more than doubled Longtime residents expressed mixed views about the changes "Put her in the gutter" Morse saidAsked whether immigration had affected the vote in the county Stiehm said "I wouldn’t say it was a determining factor but I’d say it was a factor"The fish store owner"We needed change but I don’t think it’s a change that I expected Not even close"Mike Valley is a fourth-generation commercial fisherman His retail store Valley Fish & Cheese sits a few blocks from the Mississippi River in Prairie du Chien Wisconsin He said his family is among the oldest in the city His father ran a market half a century

he was "sick and tired of the same old same old s—" The more he had seen the more he had soured on the president "I voted for him" he said "We needed change but I don’t think it’s a change that I expected Not even close" Why "The fighting the bickering not getting along with one another" he repliedEarlier in the week Trump had held a rally in Phoenix where he delivered a rambling 90-minute speech that had roused the audience while putting fact-checkers into overdrive Valley found the president’s behavior "a little off the rails" and said "You gotta start getting along with people"Asked whether he would vote for Trump again he replied "No absolutely not As of right today no"The county fair"He should just stop talking for a while and be a president"It was opening day at the Crawford County Fair At the fairgrounds just south of Gays Mills Wisconsin Bob Welsh was handling the local Democratic Party’s table inside one of the exhibition sheds Like many Democrats who never saw Trump coming Welsh was still in shock over the results of the election "Still scratching our heads" he saidTrump had carried the southwestern Wisconsin county by almost six percentage points the first time a Republican had won it since Reagan in 1984 Obama had captured 63 percent and 59 percent of the vote in his two elections Clinton got just 44 percent against Trump"He conned his way in and now he’s going to con his way into everything he does" Welsh said of the president "He lied about everything What were people thinking"Shaynan Holen who lives in nearby Vernon County where a similar pattern had occurred blamed Clinton’s defeat on an intraparty split among Democrats caused by the bitter primary contest with Sen Bernie Sanders of Vermont "Once Bernie was eliminated they abandoned Hillary" she said referring to Sanders’s supporters She added: "They came right out and said ‘I’m voting Republican’ "In another exhibition shed early arrivals to the fair were eating lunch "I’m appalled" said one woman who declined to give her name "I’m at a loss for words for the person who was elected president of the United States"Warren Knudtson was at the American Legion table He said Trump was dividing the country and unfairly attacking the media "If he doesn’t start changing pretty soon it’s going to be chaos" he saidChris Underwood a retired police officer stopped to talk as he was walking near the rides "I like a forceful hand" he said "I like when somebody says they’re going to do something and they do it" But he had one bit of advice for Trump "You can’t accomplish anything if you’re making everybody mad as a president" he said adding: "He should just stop talking for a while and be a president"The state worker"I hoped for more of the making America great again making America strong again rebuilding our economy in our country"By midsummer of Trump’s first year in office Kurt Glazier had concerns about the president The White House was undergoing turmoil and staff upheaval events that were unsettling to the Whiteside County GOP leader"Every night when I watch the national news I wonder what circus is going to be on the news what they’re going to talk about" he said "And virtually every night the first headline is something that President Trump has done or said I hoped for more of the making America great again making America strong again rebuilding our economy in our country It’s almost like it’s ‘The Apprentice’ on a daily basis"Glazier didn’t like the disorder of the White House "It’s just like the president is never happy unless he can control everybody and he gets them to do what he wants and says" he said "And I think people are beginning to be disappointed by those actions"He expressed misgivings about why Donald Trump Jr tweet Deep
