Sex assault claims rock Ardern's New Zealand government

Sex assault claims rock Ardern's New Zealand governmentNew Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern apologised Wednesday for her party’s handling of an alleged sexual assault, as a top ally was forced to resign. In the most serious scandal Ardern has faced since she took office in late 2017, the centre-left leader admitted “mistakes were made” after a Labour Party volunteer accused a senior party staffer of assault last year. “Raising an allegation of sexual assault is an incredibly difficult thing to do — for additional distress to be caused through the way these allegations are handled is incredibly distressing,” Ardern said in a statement.

Trump news: President says Bahamas full of 'bad gang members', as official threatens to fire NOAA employees over Hurricane Dorian claimsDonald Trump is campaigning in North Carolina on Monday in support of Republican Mark Harris, who faces a strong challenge in a special election in a district that the president carried overwhelmingly in 2016.During an impromptu press conference before boarding his plane to that state, Mr Trump shocked reports by telling them that he is hesitant to allow Bahamians to enter the US after Hurricane Dorian because the island is full of "bad gang members". Also during that press conference, the president repeatedly said that Barack Obama had given him a present by leaving judicial vacancies, and repeatedly insisted that pundits had misanalysed the 2018 election results — in which Republicans lost control of the House — because his party had retained control of the Senate in an election year that favoured the GOP.
