Trump news – LIVE: President responds to photo of drowned migrants as he plans to live tweet Democratic debate

Trump news - LIVE: President responds to photo of drowned migrants as he plans to live tweet Democratic debateDonald Trump has given a wild interview to Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business, declaring, “Almost all countries in this world take tremendous advantage of the United States, it’s unbelievable!” The president claimed Japan would watch a Third World War “at home on a Sony TV” rather than come to America’s aid (ahead of a trip there for the G20 summit), attacked Twitter, accused retired FBI special counsel Robert Mueller of deleting incriminating Justice Department text messages and said Iran “does not have smart leadership” and is “going down the tubes”. On Capitol Hill, the House of Representatives passed an emergency spending bill late last night securing $ 4.5bn (£3.6bn) to address the humanitarian crisis at the US-Mexico border, as a horrific photograph of a drowned migrant father and daughter emerged provoking new public anger. Mr Trump’s son Eric has meanwhile been spat on while out dining in public.Please allow a moment for our liveblog to load

Bollywood star Sridevi Kapoor 'accidentally drowned in hotel bath' 

Bollywood star Sridevi Kapoor 'accidentally drowned in hotel bath' Bollywood superstar Sridevi Kapoor died of accidental drowning in her hotel bathtub in Dubai on Saturday, her postmortem report said on Monday. The Dubai government's media office tweeted that the postmortem analysis of the 54-year old actress, who used only her first name, revealed that she had died due to ‘drowning in her hotel apartment's bathtub following loss of consciousness’. The case has been handed over to the Dubai Public Prosecutor for further investigation, to try and determine the exact circumstances leading to the actresses’ death.   Earlier, it was reported that Sridevi, who was known by her first name, had died of a cardiac arrest in her hotel in Dubai where she was attending her nephew's wedding.   She was found unconscious in her bathtub in her suite at Dubai’s Emirates Towers hotel and rushed to hospital where she was declared dead on arrival. The much loved actress was mourned across India  Credit: AFP Dubai’s Gulf News, however, alleged that the glamourous Bollywood star, who acted in 300 films in five different Indian languages, was under the ‘influence of alcohol’ and had fallen into the bathtub and drowned. But the Dubai authorities did not confirm this, nor did it tweet the results of a possible toxicology test they might have conducted on the actress to determine alcohol intake. According to news reports from Dubai the latest revelations in Sridevi’s postmortem report could result in a delay in repatriating her body to Mumbai for cremation according to Hindu rites. Although expected home on Monday on a specially chartered flight, her body has instead been sent for embalming.   Meanwhile, thousands of Sridevi’s fans had gathered outside her Mumbai house to pay their last respects before her funeral. Sridevi began her acting career at the age of four in southern India and spent the next five decades playing mostly lead roles in films, a large number of which became box office hits. Her last and 300th movie ‘Mom’ was released in 2017. She married Bollywood film producer Boney Kapoor in 1996 and they had two daughters.

Shivering girl, 3, found clinging to drowned mother 'who saved her' in Texas floods

Shivering girl, 3, found clinging to drowned mother 'who saved her' in Texas floodsA shivering three-year-old girl found clinging to the body of her drowned mother in a rain-swollen canal in Southeast Texas was likely saved by her mother's effort to carry her child to safety from Harvey's floods, police said on Wednesday. Beaumont police identified the mother as 41-year-old Colette Sulcer and said her daughter was being treated for hypothermia but doing well. When rescuers found the mother and daughter, the girl was on her mother's back, holding on, said Police Officer Haley Morrow. "I envision what I would do if that was me in that situation and that's what I would do: I would put my child on my back and try to swim to safety or whatever," Morrow said. Hurricane Harvey hits Texas, in pictures Sulcer's vehicle got stuck Tuesday afternoon in the flooded parking lot of an office park just off Interstate 10, said Capt. Brad Penisson of the fire-rescue department in Beaumont. Squalls from Harvey were pounding Beaumont with up to 2 inches (5 centimeters) of rain an hour with 38 mph (60 kph) gusts, according to the National Weather Service. A witness saw the woman take her daughter and try to walk to safety when the swift current of a flooded drainage canal next to the parking lot swept them both away, Penisson said. Morrow said the woman's actions probably saved her little girl's life. "When they found her she was still up out of the water," Morrow said. The US Coast Guard responds to search and rescue requests in response to Hurricane Harvey in the Beaumont, Texas Credit: EPA A police and fire-rescue team in a boat caught up to them a half-mile downstream from Sucler's vehicle, according to Penisson. Rescuers pulled them into the boat just before they would have gone under a railroad trestle where the water was so high that the boat could not have followed. First responders lifted the child from her mother's body and tried to revive the woman, but she never regained consciousness. A citizen allowed first responders to load the mother and daughter into his truck and he brought them to a waiting ambulance, Morrow said. The sacrificial love of a mother was demonstrated down in TX, RIP Colette Sulcer – You will not be forgotten #MothersLove#ForeverLove— Motivated Patriot (@aroesta) August 30, 2017 This woman is a true hero and her daughter will always know her mom saved her. #ColetteSulcer— Toby (@realBrowncoat) August 30, 2017 The child was taken to the Christus St. Elizabeth Hospital in Beaumont, and was expected to be released on Wednesday. Officer Carol Riley said the girl was doing "very well" and was chatty. "Everybody at the hospital and the officers just fell in love with her," Riley said. At least 25 people have been killed by Harvey since Friday, when it made landfall in Texas as a Category 4 hurricane. Harvey has since weakened to a tropical storm.
