Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani: 'I never said there was no collusion' with Russia during 2016 election campaign

Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani: 'I never said there was no collusion' with Russia during 2016 election campaignDonald Trump’s personal lawyer has insisted he “never said there was no collusion” between the president’s campaign team and Russia. Rudy Giuliani said he had “no idea” if campaign staffers had been working with the Kremlin ahead of the 2016 election, and only knew that Mr Trump had not. The remarkable claim came during a CNN interview on Wednesday in which the former New York mayor complained about “false reporting” of the Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

GoFundMe refunds more than $20 million of donations after campaign to pay for border wall fails

GoFundMe refunds more than $  20 million of donations after campaign to pay for border wall failsThe crowdfunding platform GoFundMe said more than $ 20 million (£15.5 million) in donations were slated to be refunded after a campaign to raise $ 1 billion for the Trump administration to build a wall on the border with Mexico fell well short of its goal. The fundraising campaign, which began last month, had gone viral as President Donald Trump’s attempt to get Congress to pay for the wall fuelled a heated political dispute and resulted in a partial shutdown of the federal government. More than 325,000 donors had pledged in the GoFundMe campaign that the organiser, a veteran from Florida named Brian Kolfage, said would have been used for Mr Trump’s border wall.

U.S. air campaign against Islamic State in Syria likely to end

U.S. air campaign against Islamic State in Syria likely to endNATO allies France and Germany said Washington’s change of course on Syria risks damaging the fight against Islamic State, the militant group that had seized swathes of Iraq and Syria but has now been squeezed to a sliver of Syrian territory. Several of Trump’s fellow Republicans in Congress, joined by opposition Democrats, urged the president to reverse course, saying the withdrawal would strengthen the hand of Russia and Iran in Syria and enable a resurgence of Islamic State. Trump, however, gave no sign of changing his mind and lashed out at Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican who is sometimes an ally of the president but who has said a withdrawal would have “devastating consequences” for the United States.
