President Donald Trump’s recent forays to Mar-a-Lago, his private Florida club, have already stirred up controversy due to the president bragging about playing favorites with his guests or discussing sensitive foreign policy subjects in public. Now a new series of controversies have emerged about the president ducking his press pool and severely inconveniencing the local community.

The president has reportedly participated in a number of activities that weren’t on his public schedule during his stay at Mar-a-Lago this weekend. These included a visit to a Dana-Farber Cancer Institute gala on Saturday, a golf outing with professional golfer Rory McIlroy on Sunday, a visit to a Palm Beach Habilitation Center lunch on Monday, and a meeting with Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw to discuss among other things the cost of local law enforcement in the community on Monday.

That last meeting was particularly noteworthy, considering that Trump has been causing his neighbors a fair amount of headaches since his presidency started. These include, as The New York Times reported, “$200,000 in lost fuel sales at a large local airport in a single four-day visit this month, 75 no-shows at a new restaurant in just one night, $60,000 a day to pay overtime to sheriff’s deputies who guard the many closed roads, a tab that is about $1.5 million over all since the election, 250 private flights grounded every day.”

The attempt to get inside the U.S. president’s mind is aimed at helping Vladimir Putin plan for their first meeting. Among the dossier’s preliminary conclusions is that Trump is a risk-taker who can be naïve, a senior Kremlin adviser told NBC News.

Speaking to reporters at Mar-a-lago in Florida on Monday afternoon, President Donald Trump said he’ll name Lt. Gen. H.R McMaster as national security adviser.

Acting national security adviser Keith Kellogg will be chief of staff for the National Security Council, according to the White House pool report.

Trump called McMaster “a man of tremendous talent and tremendous experience.”

Former national security adviser Michael Flynn resigned last week amid revelations that he discussed U.S. sanctions with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the month before Trump took office. The former national security adviser admitted that he briefed Vice President Mike Pence and other White House officials with “incomplete information,” which they then shared in cable news interviews.

Saudi Arabia some many human rights abuses and ruled by Saudi Royal family under extreme Sharia law and some terrorists have been from Saudi, but Saudi was not part of Donald Trump’s executive order. Does this mean President Donald Trump agrees with the rulings of law in Saudi , for such an outspoken person he appears to be quiet about this.

Or is he indicating it is Fake News or is it Alternative facts.

Josep Goded

For years, Saudi Arabia has had the honour to be one of the principal violators of human rights in the world. Regardless of its efforts to hide it from the international community, numerous local human rights organisations have regularly exposed the abuses perpetrated by the regime. In response, the Saudi government has banned all international human rights organisations from entering Saudi Arabia. As numerous organisations have suggested, the primary problem remains in the system and the interpretation of the Sharia (Islamic law).

Saudi Arabia uses Sharia (Islamic law) as its domestic legislation. There is no a formal penal code; the criminal justice court derives its interpretation from an extreme version of Sharia. In most of cases, detainees do not have a fair trial and are not allowed to meet with a lawyer during their interrogations. Further, the authorities do not usually inform them about their charges until…

Age UK report calls for urgent action, including cash injection in spring budget and development of long-term plan Social care in England is at risk of imminent collapse in the worst affected areas unless urgent steps are taken to address the crisis engulfing the sector, Age UK has warned. The charity’s latest report on the healthcare of older people calls for a cash injection into the adult social care system in the spring budget and the development of a long-term solution to a problem that will otherwise become more acute. Analysis previously published by Age UK suggests almost 1.2 million people aged 65 and over do not receive the care and support they need with essential daily activities such as eating, dressing and bathing. That figure has shot up by 17.9% in just a year and almost by 50% since 2010, with nearly one in eight now living with some level of unmet need, it says. Age UK’s charity director, Caroline Abrahams, said the report makes for “frightening reading”, adding:
