The Trump administration has already imposed sanctions on Maduro and members of his government and Washington has indicated that it is prepared to go further.
The Australian government on Wednesday confirmed a group of Cuban refugees entered the country, under the immigration agreement signed with the United States during the Obama administration, but which was later criticized as stupid by Donald Trump.
In keeping with the recent meme of recognizing bad behavior “on many sides,” there was something that was painfully obvious during last week’s improv news-conference-like-no-other in the lobby of Trump Tower: President Trump and the media deserve each other. Both are driven by ego and take criticism personally. Both will twist the facts to defend themselves and push their agenda. And both love to wrestle in the mud.

House Republicans, who are now deliberating the government’s 2018 budget, pledge to eliminate deficits within a decade. Well, good luck with that. It must be obvious that chronic deficits reflect a basic political impasse that can be broken only if majorities in Congress do things they’ve refused to do: trim Social Security benefits; raise taxes significantly; control health spending. There is a giant mismatch between what Americans want from government and what they’ll pay for with taxes.

Drawing upon two years’ worth of impertinent comments, offensive tweets and harmful policy positions, Donald Trump can aptly be described with a number of words that end in “-ist.”
Protectionist. Nativist. Misogynist. Racist.
I usually don’t get this upset over someone being underpaid, unless I’m the someone. But when one of my favorite TV shows appears to have been hurt -- perhaps gravely -- by one of my least favorite things, it bothers me.
US President Donald Trump spoke over the weekend with the leaders of China, Japan and several Persian Gulf countries, and plans to do the same Monday with the heads of the French and German governments, the White House announced.
Conservatives insist that CNN is DOA.
That’s nonsense. Ratings are high and profits are up. All this since the man who made a fortune by building up Donald Trump as a television star -- Jeff Zucker, the head of CNN who used to run NBC -- seems to have decided that there is more money to be made from tearing down Trump now that he is president.
In his latest messages through his Twitter account, the President has reissued misogynist comments, this time detonated by the reporter's debate on MSNBC's morning program "Morning Joe."
My brother-in-law, a volunteer constable in a small Arkansas town, once said that the answer to the tensions and violence between motorists of color and the police was for law enforcement to treat those they are sworn to protect with respect and politeness.
Inconcebible hasta hace pocos años, hoy miles de ciudadanos estadounidenses, así como residentes permanentes nacidos en Cuba, están recuperando su ciudadanía de nacimiento y, literalmente, volviendo a casa.

It was unthinkable a few years ago, but thousands of Cuban-born U.S. citizens and permanent residents are reclaiming the citizenship of their birth and, literally, going back home again.
In their first official meeting, the President of the United States and the Indian Prime Minister talked about trade and defense cooperation, terrorism, but avoided immigration and climate change, issues in which both leaders differ. India is the country most affected by Trump's decision to tighten controls on granting the H-1B visa, which benefits foreign workers.
Do we have a worker shortage? Maybe.
Americans sense that Big Media is a big mess, but they can’t put their finger on why that is.
Memory takes me back to August 1997, when I arrived in Phoenix to start my first full-time newspaper job as a general assignment reporter. I was greeted by the managing editor, an old-school journalist who spelled out the rules of the profession and made clear what he expected from me.
According to statements in private sessions, two top national intelligence officials assured the Senate Intelligence Committee that the President would have asked them to deny any collusion with Russia.
