Alyssa Milano: We can't let Trump and Kavanaugh be America's face

If any number of women are to be believed, and I believe they are, Donald Trump is a sexual predator.

Both Kavanaugh and Trump have denied allegations against them. I wish so deeply that the alleged sexual violence -- and overall cruelty toward those who are vulnerable -- committed by those who wear the mantle of our nation's government began and ended with these two men. It does not. It exists at every level of our national institutions, and even at agencies working on behalf of our government who are tasked with the sacred duty of caring for children.

Trump and Kim Jong-un to meet 'as soon as possible'

The shock announcement was made by senior South Korean officials in Washington, who passed on a letter from the North Korean leader.

Donald Trump signs directive to send astronauts back to Moon

It will focus on long-term explorations and use of the Moon's surface, in partnership with the private sector.

Mr Trump also said the program would lay the foundation for an eventual mission to Mars, although he did not give a date for this.

There is bipartisan support for further space exploration but parties disagree over the timeline and budget.

Trump accused of 'slut shaming' Senator Kirsten Gillibrand

The Republican president has branded the accusations "fabricated" and "FAKE NEWS!"

Trump's travel ban to go fully into effect

Trump trades 'short and fat' barb with N Korea's Kim

China, Vietnam, the Philippines, Taiwan, Malaysia and Brunei all have competing claims to territory in the South China Sea.

Trump in China for talks with Xi amid N Korea tensions

Chinese President Xi Jinping gave a lavish welcome to Mr Trump in what has been called a "state visit-plus".

Before his visit, Mr Trump piled praise on Mr Xi, saying he was looking forward to meeting the Chinese president after "his great political victory".
