Trump says Venezuela's military will 'lose everything they have' if they continue to support Maduro

Trump says Venezuela's military will 'lose everything they have' if they continue to support MaduroDonald Trump has issued his most blunt threat yet to Venezuela’s military – stop supporting President Nicolas Maduro or risk “losing everything”. In a speech in which he claimed “the evils” of socialism were also being turned back in Cuba and Nicaragua and that the US would never be a socialist country – comments that were almost certainly made with the 2020 presidential election in mind – the president spoke directly to military officials who have so far overwhelmingly supported Mr Maduro. Venezuela is leaving socialism, the dictatorship, and there is no turning back,” he told a crowd of Venezuelan-Americans and immigrants in Florida.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s wipes away tears at protest to defund US border agency: ‘They don't deserve a dime’

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s wipes away tears at protest to defund US border agency: ‘They don't deserve a dime’Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was seen wiping tears from her face after using the death of a seven-year-old migrant child to demand an end to funding for the nation’s border agency. At the event on Capitol Hill in Washington DC, the New York congresswoman said US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) did “not deserve a dime”, until it showed it cared about human rights. “Not only will we not agree to fund [ICE], but we are here to say that an agency like ICE, which repeatedly and systematically violates human rights, does not deserve a dime,” she said.

Don't tell cancer patients they are 'brave', says Macmillan following poll

Don't tell cancer patients they are 'brave', says Macmillan following pollLoved-ones should not tell cancer sufferers they are brave because this risks putting them under pressure to appear positive, Macmillan Cancer Support has said. Six out of 10 people with cancer do not want to be described as a fighter, while many object to the suggestion they are battling the disease, a survey suggests, a new survey by the charity has found. The poll found many felt that battling or fighting words were inappropriate to describe them – but equally they do not want to be called a hero. Many prefer factual language to be used to describe themselves and the disease, rather than being considered cancer stricken or a cancer victim, the results suggest. The survey of more than 2,000 people who have or have had cancer found that words such as hero, cancer victim and cancer stricken were inappropriate as they were disempowering (42 per cent), isolating (24 per cent) and put people under pressure to be positive (30 per cent). People with cancer most hated being described as cancer stricken, followed by being a hero and then a cancer victim. When it comes to death, 64 per cent said people should be described as having died from cancer, with others preferring passed away. Meanwhile more than four in ten thought it was inappropriate to say someone had lost their battle while 37 per cent objected to the idea they had lost their fight. Most said this was because it implied somebody was defeated by cancer while many thought it undermined a person's strength and courage. Karen Roberts, chief nursing officer at Macmillan, said: "We know that there is no such thing as a 'typical' person with cancer, so it follows that people will prefer different ways of talking about it. "We hear from people every day who face this problem, that at its worst could even stop people getting the support they need. "By drawing attention to this we want to encourage more people to talk about the words they prefer to hear, and stop the damage that can be caused to people's wellbeing and relationships."
