via Poll: Most Americans don’t trust Trump with nuclear authority – AOL News

With North Korea and the U.S. trading threats of war, a new poll reveals the majority of Americans distrust President Trump with his nuclear authority.

As many as 6 in 10 Americans surveyed feel this way, according to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll.

Just 38 percent trust Trump will act responsibly in handling his nuclear authority, which coincidentally is similar to his job approval rating of 36 percent.

via Chuck Schumer yanked his offer to Trump to partially fund the border wall in exchange for DACA – AOL News

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is playing hardball on President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall after making an offer to Trump during failed negotiations on government funding.

During a Friday meeting at the White House, just hours before the government shut down, Schumer offered Trump partial funding for his long-promised wall along the Mexican border in exchange for concessions on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration program.

Trump initially agreed to the deal, Schumer said, before reversing course and rejecting the parameters a few hours later.

via ‘I’m leaving the Democratic Party today’: Democrats are infuriated by their own party’s deal with the GOP to reopen the government – AOL News

Many Democrats are incensed about the deal Senate Democrats reached with Republicans on Monday to reopen the government on the third day of the federal shutdown.

On Monday, a bipartisan group of senators, including 33 Democrats, led by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, reached an agreement to fund the government until February 8 in exchange for a promise from the GOP to hold a vote on legislation to replace the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which protects about 700,000 undocumented immigrants from deportation.

via The untold truth of Prince Harry

Prince Henry of Wales, commonly referred to as Prince Harry, remains a huge source of gossip and outright scandal throughout much of the world. For some, Harry’s an eyesore, a living relic of a bygone era of elitist privilege that has no place in a modern, mostly monarchy-free world.

via Report: Jeff Sessions questioned in Mueller’s Russia probe – AOL News

WASHINGTON, Jan 23 (Reuters) – U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions was questioned last week by the special counsel’s office investigating potential collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, a U.S. Justice Department spokesman said Tuesday.

The interview marked the first time that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office is known to have interviewed a member of Trump’s Cabinet.

Sessions recused himself from overseeing the Russia probe last March after media outlets reported he had failed to disclose several 2016 meetings with Russia’s ambassador. His recusal paved the way for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint Mueller as special counsel in May 2017.
