In a terse statement issued Thursday evening, Trump's personal lawyer, Jay Sekulow, said, "The President's
legal counsel was not involved in acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney's press briefing."
After hours of backlash, Mulvaney attempted to clarify his comments in a statement the White House released shortly afterward.
“Once again, the media has decided to misconstrue my comments to advance a biased and political witch hunt
gainst President Trump. Let me be clear, there was absolutely no quid pro quo between Ukrainian military aid
and any investigation into the 2016 election," Mulvaney noted. "The president never told me to withhold any

money until the Ukrainians did anything related to the server. The only reasons we were holding the money was

because of concern about lack of support from other nations and concerns over corruption."

"I believe that we should be more kind to other folks. I also believe that we should hold people to
account for what they've done, especially public servants who have a record of having done something or not done something."
"We're all God's children. So I've developed friendships that some people may be surprised about
within the Washington circles, especially with Republicans like Trey Gowdy, for example. He and I disagree a lot, and very strongly,
on a lot of political issues. We've developed a friendship that's based on respect, and he's been there for me during some personally challenging times."
"For me, it's John McCain, and I miss him every day...There is nothing more liberating in life than
fighting for a cause larger than yourself. That's what we're doing right now." Steyer: "So I'm friends with a
woman from Denmark, South Carolina, named Deanna Barry, who is fighting for clean water and environmental
justice in her community. She's a different gender. She's a different race. She's from a different part of
the country, but she reminds me of my parents in terms of her courage and her optimism and her honor."

"Despite the opposition and repeated warnings from the United States and the international community,
Turkish President (Recep Tayyip) Erdogan ordered a unilateral invasion of northern Syria that has resulted
in widespread casualties, refugees, destruction, insecurity, and a growing threat to U.S. military forces,"
Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said in a statement. "This unacceptable incursion has also undermined the
successful multinational "Defeat ISIS" mission in Syria, and resulted in the release of many dangerous ISIS
detainees. Due to Turkey's irresponsible actions, the risk to U.S. forces in northeast Syria has reached an
unacceptable level. We are also at risk of being engulfed in a broader conflict. Therefore, at the President's
direction, the Department of Defense is executing a deliberate withdrawal of U.S. military personnel from northeast Syria."

Trump never officially nominated McAleenan, keeping him in an "acting" role, which is now commonplace for
a president who said he prefers the "flexibility."
A person familiar with his thinking said McAleenan had considered returning to the private sector
some two years ago and never expected last April to be tapped by Trump to take over the Homeland Security
 Department, a sprawling agency created in the wake of 9/11 tasked with preventing future terror attacks, enforcing the nation's immigration laws and securing elections.
The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity in order to discuss sensitive personnel issues, said the
acting secretary felt he had accomplished two of his top priorities -- reducing the number of
undocumented border crossings and identifying "violent white supremacy" as a threat to the nation in a key U.S. strategy document.
After a decade-long sprint in government service, the person said, McAleenan wanted to spend more time with family, including his two young children.

McAleenan's resignation comes amid reports that he also felt undermined by immigration hardliners in
the administration who frequently appeared on conservative news outlets calling for tougher policies.

Republicans in the US House of Representatives have announced plans to introduce a sanctions bill against Turkey for its offensive in Syria.
Congresswoman Liz Cheney said Turkey must face "serious consequences for mercilessly attacking our Kurdish allies" in the region.
It comes as President Donald Trump said he hoped to mediate the conflict.
Turkey moved into northern Syria on Wednesday after the president pulled US troops out of the area.

Tens of thousands of civilians fled their homes on the second day of the offensive.

Critics say the US withdrawal effectively gave Turkey the green light to begin its cross-border assault,
which President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says is to create a "safe zone" running for 480km along the Syrian side of the border.

Kurdish militias of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) control the cross-border areas - groups Turkey calls "terrorists" who support an anti-Turkish insurgency.

The SDF have been key allies of the United States in the battle against the Islamic State (IS) group, and say they have been "stabbed in the back" by the US.

There are fears the operation could lead to an ethnic cleansing of Kurds and revive IS.

A gunman has killed two people in eastern Germany after attempting to enter a synagogue where dozens were observing a Jewish holiday.
The suspect live-streamed the attack on an online video-game platform before being arrested.
The video, which has now been removed, showed him making anti-Semitic comments to camera before driving to a synagogue in Halle and shooting into its door.
After failing to get in, the gunman shot dead two people nearby.

The suspect is a 27-year-old German who acted alone, according to local media.

"According to the federal prosecutor there are sufficient indications for a possible right-wing extremist motive," German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said.

Videos from the scene appear to show the suspect wearing military-type clothing and using several weapons in the attack.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel attended a memorial vigil for the victims at Berlin's main synagogue.

Just over two years ago, China announced an audacious plan to overtake the US and lead the "world in AI [artificial intelligence] technology and applications by 2030".
It is already widely regarded to have overtaken the EU in many aspects.
But now its plans may be knocked off course by the US restricting certain Chinese companies from buying technologies developed or manufactured in the States.
Washington's justification is that the organisations involved have made products used to commit human rights abuses against China's Muslim ethnic minorities.

But it is notable that those on its blacklist include many of China's official "national AI champions"

Like the telecoms firm Huawei before them, they now face major disruption as a consequence of the Trump administration's intervention.

That is, in part, because they are reliant on US-based know-how.

The makers of US TV comedy South Park have issued a mock apology to China after the show was made largely unavailable in the country.
In a recent episode, the character Randy is subjected to forced labour and Communist Party re-education after being jailed during a visit to China.
Most South Park episodes and reviews are now unavailable online in China.
"We welcome the Chinese censors into our homes and hearts," the apology said. "Long live the Communist Party!"

What happens in the episode?
In "Band in China", Randy Marsh travels to China to try to expand his marijuana business.

He is arrested, sent to prison, and subjected to forced labour and re-education.

In one scene, Randy is seen standing in the rain while a guard gives him an electric shock.

"I am a proud member of the Communist Party," Randy then reads from a card. "The party is more important than the individual."

The United Nations has called for an end to the "senseless loss of life" in Iraq as the death toll from anti-government protests nears 100.
Demonstrators say they are taking a stand against unemployment, poor public services and corruption in the country.
Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert, head of the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq said: "Five days of deaths and injuries: this must stop."
She said those responsible for the loss of life should be brought to justice.
On Saturday, security forces broke up a mass rally in the east of Baghdad.
Five people are said to have died in the latest clashes in the capital. Security forces are again reported to have used live rounds and tear gas.

The Iraqi parliament's human rights commission said at least 99 people had died and nearly 4,000 had been wounded since protests began in the capital on Tuesday before spreading to the south of Iraq.

It is the deadliest unrest since so-called Islamic State was declared defeated in Iraq in 2017.

It is seen as the first major challenge to Prime Minister Adel Abdel Mahdi's fragile government, nearly a year since he came to power.

German Research Vessel Polarstern has found a location to begin its year-long drift in Arctic sea-ice.
The ship, which will head the North Pole's biggest scientific expedition, will settle next to a thick ice floe on the Siberian side of the ocean basin.
The precise location is 85 degrees north and 137 degrees east.
Hundreds of investigators will use it as a base from which to probe the impacts of climate change at the top of the world.
"After a brief but intensive search, we've found our home for the months to come," said expedition leader Prof Markus Rex, from the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI).
"It may not be the perfect floe but it's the best one in this part of the Arctic and offers better working conditions than we could have expected after a warm Arctic summer."

Wealthy Hong Kong citizens are increasingly on the hunt for new passports as protests drag on and cast a cloud over the territory's future.
Many countries run "golden visa" schemes that offer resident or citizenship rights in exchange for sizeable investments.
Several migration firms have reported a spike in interest from Hong Kong for these visas since the unrest began.
They say with no resolution in sight, residents are seeking "insurance".
Protests in the territory began in June, sparked by a proposed law that would have allowed extradition from Hong Kong to the Chinese mainland.
Despite the bill being withdrawn, demonstrations have continue to rock the city for months and show no immediate sign of abating.

Against that backdrop, various immigration agencies told the BBC they have seen a sharp rise in interest from Hong Kong residents in investor visa schemes.

A US former police officer who shot dead her neighbour inside his own apartment in Dallas has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for murder.
Amber Guyger, 31, argued she killed Botham Jean, 26, after mistakenly thinking she was in her own flat and that he was an intruder.
In an emotional testimony, Jean's brother Brandt said he "loved [Guyger] as a person" before giving her a hug.
The jury's sentence was less than the 28 years prosecutors had sought.
A four-year police veteran, Guyger did not testify in the sentencing hearing, which included emotional testimony from Jean's relatives and friends. His father, Bertrum, cried as he described the pain following the murder.
"How could we lose Botham - such a sweet boy? He tried his best to live a good honest life. He loved God. He loved everyone," he told the jury.

Following the announcement of the sentence, Brandt said he wanted to speak directly to Guyger, and told her: "If you truly are sorry, I know I can speak for myself, I forgive you."

He added: "I don't even want you to go to jail... I love you as a person. I don't wish anything bad on you" After being allowed to hug her, they held each other in a long embrace.

The missile is thought to have been launched near the port of Wonsan and flown about 450km (280 miles) before landing in the Sea of Japan.
The South Korean military said it reached an altitude of 910km.
The launch comes hours after Pyongyang said denuclearisation talks with the US would finally resume on Friday.
The National Security Council told South Korea's Yonhap news agency that it is placing "weight on the possibility" that it was a submarine launched ballistic missile.
The first reports came in the early hours of the morning when authorities reported that two missiles were launched, with at least one landing in Japanese waters

On the evening of 30 January 1948, Mahatma Gandhi stepped outside the house of an Indian business tycoon in Delhi where he was staying and walked to a prayer meeting in the garden.
Accompanying Gandhi, as usual, were his grand-nieces, Manu and Abha.
As the 78-year-old leader climbed the steps of the prayer platform, a man in khaki emerged from the crowd, pushed aside Manu, pulled out a pistol and pumped three bullets into the frail leader's chest and abdomen.
Gandhi fell, invoked the name of a revered Hindu deity, and died in the arms of the woman who had become his confidante, caregiver and chronicler in his troubled and turbulent final years.
Less than a year earlier - in May 1947 - Gandhi had told Manu with chilling prescience that he wanted her to be a "witness" when his end came.
At just 14, Manu had become one of the youngest prisoners of India's struggle for independence. She joined Gandhi, who had been jailed after his demand to end British rule, and ended up spending nearly a year - between 1943 and 1944 - in prison.
