Arti Bali,

National security subject –Terrorism and foreign policy were the focus of the fifth debate of Republican presidential candidates in Las Vegas and frontrunner Donald Trump has won with the support of 35% of the registered Republican voters while Texas Senator Ted Cruz was the runner up with 25%.

Donald Says”I am not against Muslims, I am not against religion , We are talking about security ,tens of thousands of People are pouring in our country  with cell phones having ISIS flags .”
The poll conducted by One American News Network  announced 69-year-old Trump, the New York-based real estate tycoon as the winner of the  fifth presidential debate.

As Cruz and Donald debate on Muslims ,Cruz blamed some Republicans in Congress as well as President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for supporting toppling dictators like Muammar Gaddafi in Libya and Hosni Mubarak in Egypt,said “I am in favour of destroying ISIS and radical Islamic terrorism by targeting the bad guys and one of the problems with Marco’s foreign policy is that he’s all too often supported Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama undermining dictators in the Middle East that have aided radical Islamic terrorism.”If I am elected president, we will hunt down and kill the terrorists.”

 

Jeb Bush says”  We have to destroy ISIS  and we need to re engage with the Arab world  for eliminating ISIS threat ,Donald is a good one liner and Donald is a chaos  candidate  and he will be chaotic president .”

Donald Trump , who became famous after his controversial comments on Muslims while Texas Senator Ted Cruz invoked India to contest the maverick billionaire’s demonisation of all Muslims, saying the focus on fighting extremism should not be based on faith, but on the “political and theological ideology that seeks to murder us”.

“I’m reminded of what FDR’s grandfather said, all horse thieves are democrats but not all democrats are horse thieves,” Cruz joked while taking a  swipe at Democrats  that not all Muslims are terrorists or extremists. “In this instance there are millions of peaceful Muslims across the world, like in India, where there is not the problems we are seeing in nations that are controlled by al-Qaida or IS.”

Donald Trump proposed last week that the U.S. should ban all Muslims from entering the country “until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.” Republican Party officials, including Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and House Speaker Paul Ryan, condemned the proposal. But on Tuesday, Trump defended it, saying such a measure would protect the U.S. against terrorist attacks.

“We are not talking about isolation. We’re talking about security. We’re not talking about religion. We’re talking about security,” Trump said when asked if his policies of “isolation” were really the best way for America to deal with threats.

Boris Johnson

London, May 26 : All non-essential retailers across the UK will be able to reopen from June 15, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced, as part of plans to further ease the COVID-19 lockdown in the country.

Adressing the daily Downing Street coronavirus briefing on Monday, Johnson said that the move was “contingent on progress in the fight against coronavirus”, and retailers will have to adhere to new guidelines to protect shoppers and workers, the BBC reported.

Outdoor markets and car showrooms will be able to reopen from June 1.

Johnson said new guidance had been published for the retail sector “detailing the measures they should take to meet the necessary social distancing and hygiene standards”.

“Shops now have the time to implement this guidance before they reopen,” he said.

“This will ensure there can be no doubt about what steps they should take.”

Commenting on the development, Business Secretary Alok Sharma said: “Enabling these businesses to open will be a critical step on the road to rebuilding our economy, and will support millions of jobs across the UK.”

The British Retail Consortium said it welcomed the announcement, adding it provided “much-needed clarity on the route ahead”.

A spokesman for the Confederation of British Industry added that the new guidance would help retailers to open “safely and securely”.

However, not all businesses are pleased with the announcement, said the BBC report.

The British Association of Independent Retailers said many small shops had been preparing to open from next week, adding: “It is therefore a little disappointing for the smaller retailers not to be able to open until June 15, especially as they can make it safe to do so.”

Vice President Joe Biden

Washington, May 26 : Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden has made his first public appearance at a Memorial Day event after more than two months in quarantine amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the media reported on Tuesday.

Wearing a black face mask, the former Vice President accompanied by his wife Jill, on Monday presented a wreath of white roses at Delaware’s War Memorial Plaza, before observing a moment of silence to commemorate the military personnel who fought in World War Two and the Korean War, reports the BBC.

“It feels good to be out of my house,” Biden told reporters, adding: “Never forget the sacrifices that these men and women made. Never, ever, forget.”

Biden last made a public appearance about 10 weeks ago.

Shortly before defeating his Democratic rival Bernie Sanders in primary elections in Florida, Illinois and Arizona, the presidential nominee was forced to self-isolate because of the spread of coronavirus.

Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump and his wife Melania also took part in a wreath-laying ceremony as part of Memorial Day commemorations on Monday.

The President visited Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia and then the historic Fort McHenry in Baltimore.

Trump, who has been reluctant to wear a face mask but said recently he would do so “where it’s appropriate”, appeared without any face coverings at both events on Monday.

Netanyahu Israel

Jerusalem, May 26 : Officials were considering moving the corruption trial of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from the Jerusalem District Court to a different location due to the turmoil caused by having to secure the site for the premier, it was reported.

Netanyahu was required to attend the opening hearing of his trial on Sunday, which involved a major security operation and the closure of roads in the area around the courthouse.

The court was not able hear any other cases at the time, The Times of Israel reported on Monday citing the Hebrew language Channel 12 as saying.

In a meeting on Monday, the court officials reviewed the events of the previous day and in the coming weeks the administration, together with Jerusalem District Court President Aharon Farkash and the three judges presiding over the trial, will decided whether to relocate for the rest of the proceedings, the Channel 12 report said.

Netanyahu on Sunday became the first serving Israeli premier to stand trial.

The Prime Minister, who was sworn back into office as head of a rare national unity government last week, will be allowed to skip the next hearing, which will take place on July 19, with the judges saying he would not have to return to court until the evidence stage, said The Times of Israel.

Netanyahu, who denies wrongdoing, faces charges of fraud and breach of trust in all the cases, as well as bribery in one of them.

Before entering the courtroom on Sunday, he told the media that the cases against him were fabricated and part of an attempted “political coup” to oust him from power.

According to Israeli law, a Prime Minister charged with a crime is not required to resign.

Even if he is convicted, Netanyahu will not be required to resign unless and until any appeals are exhausted, reports the BBC.

Under the unity government deal with former political rival Benny Gantz, a new role of “alternate prime minister” was created, which means when the two men switch positions in 18 months’ time.

Netanyahu will still occupy a prime ministerial office and stay on as Gantz’s deputy.
