Arab lawmakers in Israel endorse Gantz for prime minister

Arab lawmakers in Israel endorse Gantz for prime ministerThe Arab bloc in Israel’s parliament abandoned its usual hands-off stance Sunday and endorsed former military chief Benny Gantz for prime minister, potentially giving him the edge over hard-line incumbent Benjamin Netanyahu. The historic move marked the first time in nearly three decades that the Arab parties backed a candidate for prime minster, reflecting their contempt for Netanyahu, who was accused of fomenting hatred of the Arabs during his re-election campaign. “Benny Gantz is not our cup of tea,” said Arab lawmaker Ahmad Tibi.

Anderson Cooper: ‘If You Can’t Be Tough With the NRA, Go After the Danish Prime Minister’

Anderson Cooper: ‘If You Can’t Be Tough With the NRA, Go After the Danish Prime Minister’Following President Trump’s sudden Tuesday night announcement that he was canceling his Denmark trip because the Danish won’t entertain the idea of selling Greenland to him, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper observed that the president couldn’t seem to muster the same tough talk in his dealings with the National Rifle Association. After it was reported earlier this week that Trump had repeatedly asked his advisers about the idea of purchasing Greenland from Denmark, Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen called the notion “absurd,” leading to Trump’s Twitter blow-off of his upcoming visit.Asking CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta about the latest developments on Trump’s canceled trip, Cooper pointed out that this all came across as a comedy bit on late-night TV.“You would think it’s made up?” Cooper wondered aloud. “You would think this whole thing — this is something on [Stephen] Colbert, but it’s real.”Acosta, meanwhile, said that one of his sources suggested that Greenland was “one of the president’s bright shiny objects” that he threw out on Twitter Tuesday night to distract from a tough news day for the White House.“You know what, if you can’t be tough with the NRA, go after the Danish prime minister,” Cooper snarked.Cooper was referencing reports that Trump had spoken with NRA chief executive Wayne LaPierre on Tuesday and assured him that universal background checks were off the table when it came to any potential legislation following the El Paso and Dayton mass shootings.“Greenland was never on the table, anyway,” the CNN anchor concluded, getting one last dig in at the president.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Swedish prime minister warns Donald Trump he cannot influence ASAP Rocky judicial process

Swedish prime minister warns Donald Trump he cannot influence ASAP Rocky judicial processThe Swedish prime minister has disputed Donald Trump’s claim over the treatment of a detained American rapper following a phone call between the two leaders.  Platinum-selling artist A$ AP Rocky was arrested in Sweden in early July on suspicion of assault following a street brawl. Mr Trump tweeted on Saturday that he had spoken to Prime Minister Stefan Lofven offering to personally vouch for his bail. Mr Trump said the Swedish PM assured him that the rapper would be treated fairly. “Just had a very good call with @SwedishPM Stefan Löfven who assured me that American citizen A$ AP Rocky will be treated fairly," Mr Trump said in a post on Twitter. "Likewise, I assured him that A$ AP was not a flight risk and offered to personally vouch for his bail, or an alternative… Our teams will be talking further, and we agreed to speak again in the next 48 hours!" Just had a very good call with @SwedishPM Stefan Löfven who assured me that American citizen A$ AP Rocky will be treated fairly. Likewise, I assured him that A$ AP was not a flight risk and offered to personally vouch for his bail, or an alternative….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 20, 2019 But a spokesperson for the Swedish leader has maintained Mr Lofven told Mr Trump the government cannot influence the judicial process. The spokesperson said: “It was a friendly and respectful phone call which lasted about 20 minutes. The Prime Minister made sure to point out that the Swedish judicial system, prosecutors and courts, are completely independent. "He also pointed out that everyone is equal before the law and that the government neither can nor will try to influence the judicial process." Mr Trump said he and Mr Lofven had agreed to speak again over the next two days, another claim disputed by Sweden. “It is possible that there will be follow up calls but right now there is not one scheduled or planned,” a spokesperson said. A$ AP Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, was detained following a fight in Stockholm, where he had been performing. The district court decided on Friday that Rocky would remain in custody for one more week to allow police to complete their investigation. They have until 25 July. Mayer has claimed he was acting in self defense after two young men harassed and followed him and his entourage. Fans, fellow artists and US Congress members have called for the 30-year-old artist to be freed following his arrest on 3 July. The US president intervened after an appeal from rapper Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian.
