Rudy Giuliani says Trump won’t issue pardons now, but might when Russia probe is over

President Trump isn’t giving out any pardons during the Russia investigation, but might when the probe concludes, his lawyer Rudy Giuliani said Sunday.

The former New York mayor was asked on CNN’s “State of the Union” if Trump would pardon Paul Manafort, his former campaign manager who has been indicted as part of the Russia probe.

First lady Melania Trump “hates” to see families separated at the border and hopes “both sides of the aisle” can reform the nation’s immigration laws, according to a statement Sunday about the controversy over separation of immigrant parents and children at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Mrs. Trump was making an unusual entry into a fierce political debate. She didn’t refer specifically to the Trump administration’s “no tolerance” policy, which was leading to a spike in children being separated from their families. Government statistics indicate that nearly 2,000 children were separated from their families over a six-week period in April and May.

DAVID Cameron has made a return to the public stage, sharing his wisdom on how to stop the rise of populism.
The former Prime Minister, who quit after losing the Brexit referendum, appeared to have accepted the failures in his remain campaign, urging his audience against burying their heads in the sand.

During the launch of the new Coalition For Global Prosperity campaign – a group of military, political, business and faith leaders fighting to maintain Britain’s spending commitments on foreign aid – he said a “positive approach” is needed to engage with the surge of global populism.

A newly paved road links the Turkish town of Elbeyli to the Syrian town of al-Bab, across the border. In al-Bab, Turkish and Syrian flags line the streets, and signs on government buildings are in Arabic and Turkish. One of the first billboards honors Turkish soldiers killed in the battle to liberate this town from Islamic State militants.

Al-Bab, still scarred by war, is busy with construction. A large Turkish-funded hospital is nearly complete. A huge tree-encircled plot on the main highway will be the town’s first industrial zone. A census and registration of land deeds are underway.

A DEAL to rename Macedonia to end a diplomatic row with neighbouring Greece is under threat after Austria revealed plans for a move which could effectively torpedo the hard-won agreement as it bids to prevent Turkey joining the EU.
Greece and Macedonia, a Balkan nation which was born after the break-up of the former Yugoslavia, looked to have resolved a dispute which has dragged on for almost 30 years.

The practice of separating children from their parents, a result of the Trump administration’s new hard-line immigration enforcement policy, has unfolded largely in the dark, separated from the public and restricted to the media.

But on Monday, the nonprofit journalism organization ProPublica published what it said was a recording taken inside one of the facilities run by U.S. Customs and Border Protection where children taken from their parents are housed. The audio includes the sounds of a chorus of children sobbing and asking for their parents, some in what sounds like significant levels of distress. They call out “daddy!” and “mommy!” – in Spanish – repeatedly. Others sob so hard it seems they are gasping for air.
