first_imgNew Delhi: A Delhi court on Wednesday remanded senior Karnataka Congress leader DK Shivakumar to ED’s custody for nine days till September 13, in connection with a money-laundering case it is probing against him.Special judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar, who has been hearing remand proceedings of former Finance Minister P Chidambaram as well, ordered that family members and lawyers be allowed to meet with Shivakumar for half an hour every day during his time in ED custody. Additional Solicitor-General KM Natraj sought 14 days of custody on behalf of the Enforcement Directorate, citing Shivakumar’s non-cooperation during questioning and said that the Congress troubleshooter had been evasive in answering the agency’s questions about several transactions.

However, arguing for the Karnataka leader, Abhishek Manu Singhvi pointed out that the foundation on which the ED has built its case does not hold. Singhvi was referring to the fact that the I-T complaint based on which the ED initiated its probe had itself been challenged in a High Court, which had stayed the tax proceedings against Shivakumar. Moreover, the sections under which the Income Tax department had charged Shivakumar with had no mention in the schedule of offences under the PMLA, argued Singhvi. The ED’s case is based on a I-T chargesheet filed after tax sleuths raided his premises in 2017. The tax authority had claimed that Shivakumar had contacts who would allegedly launder his unaccounted wealth through hawala channels. Shivakumar was arrested on Tuesday night after four days of questioning.last_img read more

Rabat – Amnesty International has said the terror attacks on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, are “a devastating reminder of the consequences of letting hatred and demonization go unchecked.”The organization’s Secretary General Kumi Naidoo condemned the terrorist attack on Friday, March 15. “This is also a moment of reckoning for leaders across the world who have encouraged or turned a blind eye to the scourge of Islamophobia,” Naidoo said.He added, “The politics of demonization has today cost 49 people their lives. Reports that the attackers followed a white supremacist manifesto must galvanize world leaders to start standing against this hate-filled ideology.” He further stated, “The New Zealand we believe in is one that thrives as a multicultural society, welcomes refugees and migrants, and respects the rights of everyone to practice their religion in peace.”For Naidoo, the tragedy is only a trigger to stand against Islamophobia and create “a society built around peace, hope, and justice.” read more

22 May 2008The former staff of the United Nations can play a vital role as mentors and guides “to a whole new generation of international civil servants” at a time when the Organization is facing unprecedented demands, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today. In a message to the annual meeting of the Association of Former International Civil Servants, held in New York, Mr. Ban noted that the world body is being called on to provide solutions to the world’s most intractable problems, from climate change to food security to peacekeeping and peacebuilding.While the current UN staff are “proving worth of these tasks… there is much they can learn from all of you,” he said, in a message delivered on his behalf by Netta Avedon, the chief of staff development in the Office of Human Resources Management (OHRM).“Your accumulated wisdom and institutional memory complement their own youthful energy and dedication. That is why I welcome and encourage regular contact between us.”In his message the Secretary-General also urged the former staff members to be strong public advocates for the UN.“Many of you already defend and explain our Organization through speeches, talks, articles and other outreach efforts. I am grateful for this support and encourage every one of you to contribute to this effort.” read more

first_imgA statistician’s analysis of Ryanair seating plans has led to claims that passengers are more likely to win the lottery than be randomly allocated a middle seat as often as they are.The calculations have prompted Ryanair to admit that it tries to “keep window and aisle seats free” but that the remaining seats are still “randomly allocated”.Jennifer Rogers, the director of statistical consultancy at Oxford University, was given access to information on the number of free seats available at the time of check-in on four different flights and from this was able to calculate the probability of customers being allocated the dreaded middle seat – as each of them was, four times over. So tiny, in fact, that you are more than ten times more likely to win the UK National Lottery (a probability of 1:45,057,474), she says, than for this to happen.We put this to Ryanair.“No, this claim isn’t true,” said Kenny Jacobs, Ryanair’s chief marketing officer.  “When a customer does not purchase a seat, they are randomly allocated a seat. The algorithm changes on each flight and each route by reference to demands for reserved seats.” What is this all about @Ryanair ?? Split families up on checkin and then everyone swapping around on the plane #madness #allaboutthemoney— Nicola Hartley (@HartleyNicola) September 1, 2017 'We have to keep window and aisle seats free' says Ryanair Her sums suggest that the allocation of seating for passengers unwilling to pay to select a seat is not as random as they might think.Ryanair has angered some passengers over the summer by suggesting that must they pay an extra charge in order to sit next to each other on a flight.Whereas in the past, many swear blind that they would normally have been seated with friends and family if all were travelling on the same booking, this appeared to suddenly no longer be the case.Ryanair has denied on many occasions in recent months that it has changed its policy and said that it is not deliberately trying to split groups up with the way that seats are allocated. One of the few people able to mathematically put this to the test however is Rogers, who could calculate the likelihood of certain, real-life seating situations arising after being privy to the airline’s seating plans.She was asked by the consumer programme Watchdog to calculate the chances of four programme researchers being randomly allocated middle seats on all four flights, which is what happened.On their Manchester to Dublin flight, for example, she could see that there were 65 seats available at the time of check in, 15 of which were middle.“Therefore, we can calculate the probability of being allocated four middle seats on this flight as 1 in 500,” she said. “Carrying out similar calculations for the other flights, and then combining these probabilities together, I was able to calculate the probability of four researchers being allocated middle seats on their four flights, if the seating allocation was indeed random, as 1:543,094,880. A tiny probability.” @Ryanair @TomWitherow where is our other ‘random’ allocated seat?there are all these free rows around..row 33!!To sit together £28 joke! pic.twitter.com/fSfZWPyYs6— niki spiller (@sleepinbooti) July 3, 2017 Seat swapping could lead to flight delays Still confused? Us too.“This is entirely a matter of customer choice,” Jacobs explained. “We are very happy to facilitate any customer who wants a free of charge random seat but we are also going to do our best to facilitate customers who are willing to pay for a reserved seat (usually window or aisle) which start from £2.”In what has, in many ways, become a battle of semantics, Rogers puts it this way. “I don’t think they do allocate seats randomly,” she told Telegraph Travel. “Ryanair have said that they save the window and aisle seats. I think the rows will be randomly allocated, but you will be given a middle seat and then they fill up from there.”When contacted by the Telegraph, Ryanair also denied that it was concerned about reports that some passengers, upon boarding, then try to find people to swap seats with in order to reunite groups. ‘We have to keep window and aisle seats free’ says Ryanair Credit:Mateusz Wlodarczyk/NurPhoto/NurPhoto Seat swapping could lead to flight delays He went on say that, while the airline did withhold window and aisle seats from “random-seat” customers, they were still able to allocate the remaining seats for them at random.“Some random seat passengers are confused by the appearance of empty seats beside them when they check-in up to four days prior to departure,” he said. “The reason they can’t have these window or aisle seats is that these are more likely to be selected by reserved seat passengers many of whom only check-in 24 hours prior to departure.“Since our current load factor is 97 per cent, we have to keep these window and aisle seats free to facilitate those customers who are willing to pay (from £2) for them.” This has been experienced by members of the Telegraph Travel desk on recent flights and there are reports of it happening on social media too.“No,” replied Jacobs yesterday when asked if it was a concern, “as all customers sit in the seats they have been allocated and the issue doesn’t arise.”last_img read more

Criticising the “toxic” gambling advertising industry that “preys on the young”, the Rt Rev Alan Smith tabled a motion calling on the Government to reduce the quantity of gambling adverts that are reaching British children.“The times have changed since when you would simply enjoy sport by supporting a team or a particular player. Now younger generations are conditioned to enjoy sport only by betting on who is going to score the next goal or which team is going to win,” he said. Describing Brexit as “a historic moment”, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, concluded the Synod with his annual State of the Nation speech.It is understood that the Church are planning a “season of prayer” for five days at the end of March when Britain is due to depart the EU. A senior Church of England source said the event would be to help people reconnect after the divisive 2016 referendum. Speaking at the Synod, the Most Reverend Justin Welby said: “Brexit has revealed how our politics and society have, for many decades, not paid attention to the common good. “One way or another, for better or worse, life will go on.“We remain a nation of great stability compared to many. A nation of world influence, generosity in overseas aid, skilled in the exercise of soft power, with a robust and effective democracy, judiciary and many other aspects which are envied around the world.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Thirty six per cent of Anglican congregations have no parishioners under 16-years-old, the Church of England has revealed. Describing the situation as “shocking” Canon Mark Russell, chief executive of the Church Army, told the Church’s General Synod that only six per cent of Anglican churches have more than 25 under 16-year-olds. The new figures came during the Synod debate on the future of youth evangelism in England, in which the Church agreed to prioritise recruiting more youth workers and being inclusive of LGBT teenagers.Lucy Gorman, a parishioner from the Diocese of York, said diversity and inclusion is an issue within the Church’s recruitment problem, adding: “When one in 25 young people identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual we need to speak into the silence and connect with them to include them in the life of the Church.”The debate followed a motion on tackling gambling adverts in which the Bishop of St Albans, Dr Alan Smith, said children have become “conditioned” to enjoy sport by betting on who will win.  read more

first_img We’ve all got an older computer or laptop laying around the house that we just can’t be bothered to fix. Maybe it’s riddled with malware because Aunt Clara couldn’t figure out how to stop clicking on those pesky pop-up ads. Or maybe you just didn’t feel like reformatting it after installing and reinstalling things over and over again as the years went by. Whatever the case may be, you’ve probably got one or have one somewhere, and you don’t have much you can or want to do with it.Until now, that is. The creators of the Raspberry Pi have created an experimental operating system known as Pixel that’s meant to revitalize computers just like the ones I described above. It was originally made for the Raspberry Pi itself, which runs about $35, but the company is deciding to offer more than that. Pixel is actually a modified version of Debian, a version of Linux, and it’s got bits of software already installed on it. It’s meant to act as lighter, an airier operating system that doesn’t rely on a whole heaping helping of resources. But it still offers valuable software most users typically run in a normal day of computer usage.Of course, there are a few catches, though none of them are major. Pixel itself can only run when booted from a USB drive, so if you do install it for one of your laptops, you’ll have to leave your USB drive on the computer even when the novelty of running the OS has run all the way out. It also won’t work on all Macs, and you don’t get a copy of Minecraft, though if you’re a Minecraft fan you probably already own a version on most platforms anyway.But if you’re interested in bringing otherwise perfectly functional computers back to life, you can try Pixel from the official blog post here, and make sure you report back on your results. I’m sure we’ve all got some sort of tech graveyard floating around in our lives.

first_imgThe development of two self-contained gaming hubs set to house the operations of Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators (POGO) is aimed at limiting interactions between Chinese workers and local Filipinos, according to a PAGCOR official.In an interview aired on Philippines television, PAGCOR’s Vice President of Offshore Gaming, Jose Tria, said the hubs are a response to complaints from Filipinos over alleged “unruly behavior” from POGO workers. “That is the reason why we came up with these POGO hubs. These will be self-contained communities (so we can limit the) interaction between Filipinos and foreign workers,” PhilStar reported Tria as staying.“As soon as … the private participation is able to set up these hubs, we will be canceling all their authority to operate outside these hubs. We will put them there so it is easier to monitor.”The hubs, to be established by online gaming giant Oriental Game, were first announced in July. Initial plans are for two of these self-contained communities to be developed – one in Clark and the other in Cavite – with PAGCOR chair Andrea Domingo stating at the time that they would make regulation of POGOs easier. POGO operators who relocate to the hubs will be offered five year licenses rather than the current three. 181 Chinese nationals arrested in dispute over POGO accreditation status China gives Philippines iGaming reprieve but POGOs not safe yet Strong VIP growth sees Okada Manila GGR climb 72% in August Load More RelatedPostslast_img read more

The Lieutenant Governor will designate five Senators who will serve on the conference committee.Speaker Joe Straus, with whom the Mayor is also in contact, will do the same in the House of Representatives.The members of the conference committee are important because they will decide which amendments remain and which are removed.So, Turner is letting Patrick and Straus know which amendments he doesn’t want to survive.Al OrtizHouston Mayor Sylvester Turner is communicating with Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick and House Speaker Joe Straus to let them know which amendments he doesn’t want in the final version of the pension reform bill because he doesn’t think they will benefit the City’s finances.The amendment the Mayor sees as the main problem is authored by Representative Dwayne Bohac (Republican-Houston) and would exempt more than 3,000 retired firefighters from benefit cuts.“It’s the one that has the highest cost. It’s twenty 27 dollars annually and it adds 400 million dollars to the unfunded liability,” noted Turner.The legislative session ends on May 29th and the Mayor is confident there is enough time for the bill to pass.EDITOR’S NOTE: This story has been corrected from an earlier version.

first_imgAs students stage a national walkout Wednesday morning over gun violence, senior federal officials will be sitting down for an expected grilling from Congress over law enforcement’s failure to act on tips about the gunman behind last month’s school shooting in Parkland, Fla.The massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School touched off yet another round of soul-searching and national debate over guns in the U.S. that has drawn in activists, lawmakers and the White House. One major change this time, however, is that Florida teenagers who survived the violence are spearheading the conversation.The Senate Judiciary Committee officially joins the discussion Wednesday with a three-panel hearing that will likely focus, at least in part, on missteps by both local and federal law enforcement ahead of the shooting. In addition to federal officials, Florida Sens. Republican Marco Rubio and Democrat Bill Nelson will take questions. Ryan Petty, whose daughter Alaina died in the shooting, and a teacher at the high school, Katherine Posada, will also participate.“The great tragedy of the Parkland shooting is that it was preventable,” Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said. “The FBI and local law enforcement failed to act on credible tips that should have neutralized the killer and gotten him help.”The FBI has acknowledged that it received a tip in January at its West Virginia Call Center about the alleged Parkland shooter, Nikolas Cruz. The bureau said the caller provided information about Cruz’s “gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting.”Questions over the bureau’s actions will fall to acting FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich, who will be testifying alongside the acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Thomas Brandon, and the head of the National Threat Assessment Center, Lina Alathari.In February, Bowdich told reporters that protocols were not followed in the Cruz case. The tip was not forwarded to the Miami Field Office for follow-up as it should have been.“Let me be clear: There was a mistake made,” Bowdich said. “We know that. But it is our job to make sure that we do everything in our power to ensure that does not happen again.”Bowdich said the FBI is conducting a full-scale review of the tip-line, which he said received some 765,000 calls last year. He estimated that 1 in 10 of those calls turns into a lead.Local law enforcement also reportedly missed red flags. The Broward Sheriff’s Office also received a tip about Cruz potentially being a “school shooter in the making,” according to the Miami Herald. The newspaper says deputies didn’t report the warning.

Moreover, there will be a separate arena for players and sportsmen,” he said, adding that with development of the infrastructure, people from outside will also start flowing in.

We must allow the same as there is only one cricket stadium in the state,” said the Chief Minister.It may be mentioned that the Mamata Banerjee government had given a 15 acre land at New Town to All India Football Federation (AIFF), to set up the National Centre for Excellence in Football. This came after the FIFA Under-17 Football World Cup.Hakim said that he will be holding discussion with Sourav Ganguly, to chalk out a plan to develop the cricket stadium.last_img read more

He was 3-2 in Week 16, and finishes the year at a more than respectable 44-33-3. The saying in Vegas is that you can make a living if you hit 56% of the time. Colin is at 57% for the year.

Ryan hasn’t had any playoff success, and in the last three years he had 75 touchdowns against 50 interceptions.Ryan has popped in his second year with Kyle Shanahan. This season he’s thrown for almost 5,000 yards, 38 touchdowns, only 7 interceptions, and a quarterback rating of 117. He threw for another 4 touchdowns yesterday. The Falcons look like a dangerous playoff team and Ryan deserves credit.

The NFL is a quarterback league, and Rex is bad with quarterbacks. He’s also unwilling to change his style to make it a better fit in today’s game. Ryan was canned after Week 16 and he won’t be a head coach in the NFL again. He should be an excellent analyst, if he chooses that route.

But, the Tigers’ young defensive front turned it on against Ohio State, and DeShaun Watson looks like the best player in the nation heading into the championship game. Colin was wrong.Oh boy.

We guarantee you that whatever antics you’ve done in the past, you’ll still be out-crazed by one misguided bloke in Hong Kong.According to the South China Morning Post, a 41-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly calling in bomb scares at Hong Kong International Airport in an attempt to stop his girlfriend’ flight from departing. It’s been reported that the man made three calls to police; the fist bogus bomb claim was made at 4pm on Saturday, the second one followed 40 minutes later, and the third just 10 minutes after that.Police searches failed to turn up any suspicious objects. Airport operations were not interrupted.The calls were made from a mobile phone, a phone in an airport shop and a public phone at the airport. The suspect was finally apprehended at a restaurant at Terminal One.The man told police he had been trying to stop his 27-year-old girlfriend, who he had an argument with, from departing on a flight.

first_imgElection authorities in El Salvador decided to skip the customary preliminary vote count and proceed straight to the final count after a series of technical mishaps.Meanwhile, candidates from both the ruling Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front (FMLN) and the main opposition party, the Nationalist Republican Alliance (ARENA), have declared victories in key mayoral and legislative races.The delays are fueling suspicions and stoking harsh criticism toward the country’s voting authority, the Supreme Electoral Tribune (TSE).This year’s election is a tight contest between the ex-guerrilla FMLN and the conservative ARENA party for control of the Legislative Assembly.El Mundo, one of the country’s morning newspapers, wrote Tuesday in an editorial that the TSE had failed all tests regarding the vote count.“Chaos…has reached such a level that not even when votes were counted by hand was there as much delay as there is now,” the paper wrote.The editorial also criticized the electoral authorities for what it said was a lack of communication with the public regarding problems with the vote count.David Morales, El Salvador’s Human Rights Ombudsman, told the daily La Prensa Gráfica that the situation was “serious” and “regrettable” but discarded the possibility of fraud.He said the TSE and the company hired to tabulate the votes were jointly responsible for the problems.La Prensa Gráfica noted that the TSE carried out two test tallies prior to the election, and that both were failures.This year for the first time Salvadorans had the option of voting for a party list of candidates for legislative office, or for individual candidates from any party. This also contributed to delays in the vote count at many polling centers.Nearly 5 million Salvadorans were registered to vote on March 1 to elect 84 members of congress, 262 mayors and some 3,000 municipal council members. Voters also cast ballots for the country’s 20 representatives to the Guatemala-based Central American Parliament.

first_imgMaintaining   the military status quo and the safety of civilians in the buffer zone continues to be Unficyp’s most important priority, a spokesperson of the peacekeeping force said, following complaints by farmers tending their fields in the Nicosia buffer zone on Saturday that they were asked by the UN to leave after the interference of Turkish soldiers.Unficyp’s spokesperson, Aleem Siddique, told the Cyprus News Agency that the incident concerned an individual who “was refused entry into the buffer zone as he did not have UN permission to farm a number of plots.”“Any activities that undermine the military status quo within the buffer zone cannot be permitted,” he said, adding that maintaining the military status quo and the safety of civilians in the buffer zone remains the peacekeeping force’s “most important priority.”Four farmers told the media on Saturday that they were asked by the UN to leave while working their land in the Nicosia buffer zone after Turkish soldiers complained they were getting too close to their outposts.One of the farmers said that they were tending their fields when, around 10 armed Turkish soldiers appeared on the embankment, and that soon after, they were asked by the UN to leave the area, as if they chose to remain there, they would do so at their own risk.The incident reportedly took place in the buffer zone in the Sopaz area.This was not the first time Turkish soldiers had interrupted their work, the farmer said, adding that they would contact the foreign ministry on Monday to resolve the matter.He said that they are allowed to cultivate their land within the buffer zone, but that the UN maintain that they ought to stay 200 metres from the Turkish military outposts.   You May LikeUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoAngels And EntrepreneursRobert Herjavec Announce Venture Could Make You RichAngels And EntrepreneursUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

maybe four 2300 sophisticated vehicles they ran and the enemy took them Last quarter it was just announced our gross domestic product a sign of strength right But not for us It was below zero Whoever heard of this It’s never below zero Our labor participation rate was the worst since 1978 But think of it GDP below zero horrible labor participation rate And our real unemployment is anywhere from 18 to 20 percent Don’t believe the 56 Don’t believe it That’s right A lot of people up there can’t get jobs They can’t get jobs because there are no jobs because China has our jobs and Mexico has our jobs They all have jobs But the real number the real number is anywhere from 18 to 19 and maybe even 21 percent and nobody talks about it because it’s a statistic that’s full of nonsense Our enemies are getting stronger and stronger by the way and we as a country are getting weaker Even our nuclear arsenal doesn’t work It came out recently they have equipment that is 30 years old They don’t know if it worked And I thought it was horrible when it was broadcast on television because boy does that send signals to Putin and all of the other people that look at us and they say “That is a group of people and that is a nation that truly has no clue They don’t know what they’re doing They don’t know what they’re doing” We have a disaster called the big lie: Obamacare Obamacare Yesterday it came out that costs are going for people up 29 39 49 and even 55 percent and deductibles are through the roof You have to be hit by a tractor literally a tractor to use it because the deductibles are so high it’s virtually useless It’s virtually useless It is a disaster And remember the $5 billion website $5 billion we spent on a website and to this day it doesn’t work A $5 billion website I have so many websites I have them all over the place I hire people they do a website It costs me $3 $5 billion website Well you need somebody because politicians are all talk no action Nothing’s gonna get done They will not bring us believe me to the promised land They will not As an example I’ve been on the circuit making speeches and I hear my fellow Republicans And they’re wonderful people I like them They all want me to support them They don’t know how to bring it about They come up to my office I’m meeting with three of them in the next week And they don’t know “Are you running Are you not running Could we have your support What do we do How do we do it” I like them And I hear their speeches And they don’t talk jobs and they don’t talk China When was the last time you heard China is killing us They’re devaluing their currency to a level that you wouldn’t believe It makes it impossible for our companies to compete impossible They’re killing us But you don’t hear that from anybody else You don’t hear it from anybody else And I watch the speeches I watch the speeches of these people and they say the sun will rise the moon will set all sorts of wonderful things will happen And people are saying “What’s going on I just want a job Just get me a job I don’t need the rhetoric I want a job” And that’s what’s happening And it’s going to get worse because remember Obamacare really kicks in in ’16 2016 Obama is going to be out playing golf He might be on one of my courses I would invite him I actually would say I have the best courses in the world so I’d say you what if he wants to I have one right next to the White House right on the Potomac If he’d like to play that’s fine In fact I’d love him to leave early and play that would be a very good thing But Obamacare kicks in in 2016 Really big league It is going to be amazingly destructive Doctors are quitting I have a friend who’s a doctor and he said to me the other day “Donald I never saw anything like it I have more accountants than I have nurses It’s a disaster My patients are beside themselves They had a plan that was good They have no plan now” We have to repeal Obamacare and it can be and and it can be replaced with something much better for everybody Let it be for everybody But much better and much less expensive for people and for the government And we can do it So I’ve watched the politicians I’ve dealt with them all my life If you can’t make a good deal with a politician then there’s something wrong with you You’re certainly not very good And that’s what we have representing us They will never make America great again They don’t even have a chance They’re controlled fully they’re controlled fully by the lobbyists by the donors and by the special interests fully Yes they control them Hey I have lobbyists I have to tell you I have lobbyists that can produce anything for me They’re great But you know what it won’t happen It won’t happen Because we have to stop doing things for some people but for this country it’s destroying our country We have to stop and it has to stop now Now our country needs our country needs a truly great leader and we need a truly great leader now We need a leader that wrote “The Art of the Deal” We need a leader that can bring back our jobs can bring back our manufacturing can bring back our military can take care of our vets Our vets have been abandoned And we also need a cheerleader You know when President Obama was elected I said “Well the one thing I think he’ll do well I think he’ll be a great cheerleader for the country I think he’d be a great spirit” He was vibrant He was young I really thought that he would be a great cheerleader He’s not a leader That’s true You’re right about that But he wasn’t a cheerleader He’s actually a negative force He’s been a negative force He wasn’t a cheerleader; he was the opposite We need somebody that can take the brand of the United States and make it great again It’s not great again We need we need somebody we need somebody that literally will take this country and make it great again We can do that And I will tell you I love my life I have a wonderful family They’re saying “Dad you’re going to do something that’s going to be so tough” You know all of my life I’ve heard that a truly successful person a really really successful person and even modestly successful cannot run for public office Just can’t happen And yet that’s the kind of mindset that you need to make this country great again So ladies and gentlemen…I am officially running… for president of the United States and we are going to make our country great again It can happen Our country has tremendous potential We have tremendous people We have people that aren’t working We have people that have no incentive to work But they’re going to have incentive to work because the greatest social program is a job And they’ll be proud and they’ll love it and they’ll make much more than they would’ve ever made and they’ll be they’ll be doing so well and we’re going to be thriving as a country thriving It can happen I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created I tell you that I’ll bring back our jobs from China from Mexico from Japan from so many places I’ll bring back our jobs and I’ll bring back our money Right now think of this: We owe China $13 trillion We owe Japan more than that So they come in they take our jobs they take our money and then they loan us back the money and we pay them in interest and then the dollar goes up so their deal’s even better How stupid are our leaders How stupid are these politicians to allow this to happen How stupid are they I’m going to tell you thank you I’m going to tell you a couple of stories about trade because I’m totally against the trade bill for a number of reasons Number one the people negotiating don’t have a clue Our president doesn’t have a clue He’s a bad negotiator He’s the one that did Bergdahl We get Bergdahl they get five killer terrorists that everybody wanted over there We get Bergdahl We get a traitor We get a no-good traitor and they get the five people that they wanted for years and those people are now back on the battlefield trying to kill us That’s the negotiator we have Take a look at the deal he’s making with Iran He makes that deal Israel maybe won’t exist very long It’s a disaster and we have to protect Israel But… So we need people I’m a free trader But the problem with free trade is you need really talented people to negotiate for you If you don’t have talented people if you don’t have great leadership if you don’t have people that know business not just a political hack that got the job because he made a contribution to a campaign which is the way all jobs just about are gotten free trade terrible Free trade can be wonderful if you have smart people but we have people that are stupid We have people that aren’t smart And we have people that are controlled by special interests And it’s just not going to work So here’s a couple of stories happened recently A friend of mine is a great manufacturer And you know China comes over and they dump all their stuff and I buy it I buy it because frankly I have an obligation to buy it because they devalue their currency so brilliantly they just did it recently and nobody thought they could do it again But with all our problems with Russia with all our problems with everything everything they got away with it again And it’s impossible for our people here to compete So I want to tell you this story A friend of mine who’s a great manufacturer calls me up a few weeks ago He’s very upset I said “What’s your problem” He said “You know I make great product” And I said “I know I know that because I buy the product” He said “I can’t get it into China They won’t accept it I sent a boat over and they actually sent it back They talked about environmental they talked about all sorts of crap that had nothing to do with it” I said “Oh wait a minute that’s terrible Does anyone know this” He said “Yeah they do it all the time with other people” I said “They send it back” “Yeah So I finally got it over there and they charged me a big tariff They’re not supposed to be doing that I told them” Now they do charge you tariff on trucks when we send trucks and other things over there Ask Boeing They wanted Boeing’s secrets They wanted their patents and all their secrets before they agreed to buy planes from Boeing Hey I’m not saying they’re stupid I like China I sell apartments for I just sold an apartment for $15 million to somebody from China Am I supposed to dislike them I own a big chunk of the Bank of America Building at 1290 Avenue of the Americas that I got from China in a war Very valuable I love China The biggest bank in the world is from China You know where their United States headquarters is located In this building in Trump Tower I love China People say “Oh you don’t like China” No I love them But their leaders are much smarter than our leaders and we can’t sustain ourself with that There’s too much it’s like it’s like take the New England Patriots and Tom Brady and have them play your high school football team That’s the difference between China’s leaders and our leaders They are ripping us We are rebuilding China We’re rebuilding many countries China you go there now roads bridges schools you never saw anything like it They have bridges that make the George Washington Bridge look like small potatoes And they’re all over the place We have all the cards but we don’t know how to use them We don’t even know that we have the cards because our leaders don’t understand the game We could turn off that spigot by charging them tax until they behave properly Now they’re going militarily They’re building a military island in the middle of the South China sea A military island Now our country could never do that because we’d have to get environmental clearance and the environmentalist wouldn’t let our country we would never build in an ocean They built it in about one year this massive military port They’re building up their military to a point that is very scary You have a problem with ISIS You have a bigger problem with China And in my opinion the new China believe it or not in terms of trade is Mexico So this man tells me about the manufacturing I say “That’s a terrible story I hate to hear it” But I have another one Ford So Mexico takes a company a car company that was going to build in Tennessee rips it out Everybody thought the deal was dead Reported it in the Wall Street Journal recently Everybody thought it was a done deal It’s going in and that’s going to be it going into Tennessee Great state great people All of a sudden at the last moment this big car manufacturer foreign announces they’re not going to Tennessee They’re gonna spend their $1 billion in Mexico instead Not good Now Ford announces a few weeks ago that Ford is going to build a $25 billion car and truck and parts manufacturing plant in Mexico $25 billion it’s going to be one of the largest in the world Ford Good company So I announced that I’m running for president I would… … one of the early things I would do probably before I even got in and I wouldn’t even use you know I have I know the smartest negotiators in the world I know the good ones I know the bad ones I know the overrated ones You get a lot of them that are overrated They’re not good They think they are They get good stories because the newspapers get buffaloed But they’re not good But I know the negotiators in the world and I put them one for each country Believe me folks We will do very very well very very well But I wouldn’t even waste my time with this one I would call up the head of Ford who I know If I was president I’d say “Congratulations I understand that you’re building a nice $25 billion car factory in Mexico and that you’re going to take your cars and sell them to the United States zero tax just flow them across the border” And you say to yourself “How does that help us” right “How does that help us Where is that good” It’s not So I would say “Congratulations That’s the good news Let me give you the bad news Every car and every truck and every part manufactured in this plant that comes across the border we’re going to charge you a 35-percent tax and that tax is going to be paid simultaneously with the transaction and that’s it Now here’s what is going to happen If it’s not me in the position it’s one of these politicians that we’re running against you know the 400 people that we’re (inaudible) And here’s what’s going to happen They’re not so stupid They know it’s not a good thing and they may even be upset by it But then they’re going to get a call from the donors or probably from the lobbyist for Ford and say “You can’t do that to Ford because Ford takes care of me and I take care of you and you can’t do that to Ford” And guess what No problem They’re going to build in Mexico They’re going to take away thousands of jobs It’s very bad for us So under President Trump here’s what would happen: The head of Ford will call me back I would say within an hour after I told them the bad news But it could be he’d want to be cool and he’ll wait until the next day You know they want to be a little cool And he’ll say “Please please please” He’ll beg for a little while and I’ll say “No interest” Then he’ll call all sorts of political people and I’ll say “Sorry fellas No interest” because I don’t need anybody’s money It’s nice I don’t need anybody’s money I’m using my own money I’m not using the lobbyists I’m not using donors I don’t care I’m really rich I (inaudible) And by the way I’m not even saying that’s the kind of mindset that’s the kind of thinking you need for this country So because we got to make the country rich It sounds crass Somebody said “Oh that’s crass” It’s not crass We got $18 trillion in debt We got nothing but problems We got a military that needs equipment all over the place We got nuclear weapons that are obsolete We’ve got nothing We’ve got Social Security that’s going to be destroyed if somebody like me doesn’t bring money into the country All these other people want to cut the hell out of it I’m not going to cut it at all; I’m going to bring money in and we’re going to save it But here’s what’s going to happen: After I’m called by 30 friends of mine who contributed to different campaigns after I’m called by all of the special interests and by the the donors and by the lobbyists and they have zero chance at convincing me zero I’ll get a call the next day from the head of Ford He’ll say “Please reconsider” I’ll say no He’ll say “Mr President we’ve decided to move the plant back to the United States and we’re not going to build it in Mexico” That’s it They have no choice They have no choice There are hundreds of things like that I’ll give you another example Saudi Arabia they make $1 billion a day $1 billion a day I love the Saudis Many are in this building They make a billion dollars a day Whenever they have problems we send over the ships We say “we’re gonna protect” What are we doing They’ve got nothing but money If the right person asked them they’d pay a fortune They wouldn’t be there except for us And believe me you look at the border with Yemen You remember Obama a year ago Yemen was a great victory Two weeks later the place was blown up Everybody got out and they kept our equipment They always keep our equipment We ought to send used equipment right They always keep our equipment We ought to send some real junk because frankly it would be we ought to send our surplus We’re always losing this gorgeous brand-new stuff But look at that border with Saudi Arabia Do you really think that these people are interested in Yemen Saudi Arabia without us is gone They’re gone And I’m the one that made all of the right predictions about Iraq You know all of these politicians that I’m running against now it’s so nice to say I’m running as opposed to if I run if I run I’m running But all of these politicians that I’m running against now they’re trying to disassociate I mean you looked at Bush it took him five days to answer the question on Iraq He couldn’t answer the question He didn’t know I said “Is he intelligent” Then I looked at Rubio He was unable to answer the question is Iraq a good thing or bad thing He didn’t know He couldn’t answer the question How are these people gonna lead us How are we gonna how are we gonna go back and make it great again We can’t They don’t have a clue They can’t lead us They can’t They can’t even answer simple questions It was terrible But Saudi Arabia is in big big trouble Now thanks to fracking and other things the oil is all over the place And I used to say it there are ships at sea and this was during the worst crisis that were loaded up with oil and the cartel kept the price up because again they were smarter than our leaders They were smarter than our leaders There is so much wealth out there that can make our country so rich again and therefore make it great again Because we need money We’re dying We’re dying We need money We have to do it And we need the right people So Ford will come back They’ll all come back And I will say this this is going to be an election in my opinion that’s based on competence Somebody said — thank you darlin’ Somebody said to me the other day a reporter a very nice reporter “But Mr Trump you’re not a nice person” That’s true But actually I am I think I am a nice person People that know me like me Does my family like me I think so right Look at my family I’m proud of my family By the way speaking of my family Melania Barron Kai Donnie Don Vanessa Tiffany Evanka did a great job Did she do a great job Great Jared Laura and Eric I’m very proud of my family They’re a great family So the reporter said to me the other day “But Mr Trump you’re not a nice person How can you get people to vote for you” I said “I don’t know” I said “I think that number one I am a nice person I give a lot of money away to charities and other things I think I’m actually a very nice person” But I said “This is going to be an election that’s based on competence because people are tired of these nice people And they’re tired of being ripped off by everybody in the world And they’re tired of spending more money on education than any nation in the world per capita than any nation in the world and we are 26th in the world 25 countries are better than us in education And some of them are like third world countries But we’re becoming a third word country because of our infrastructure our airports our roads everything So one of the things I did and I said you know what I’ll do I’ll do it Because a lot of people said “He’ll never run Number one he won’t want to give up his lifestyle” They’re right about that but I’m doing it Number two I’m a private company so nobody knows what I’m worth And the one thing is that when you run you have to announce and certify to all sorts of governmental authorities your net worth So I said “That’s OK” I’m proud of my net worth I’ve done an amazing job I started off thank you I started off in a small office with my father in Brooklyn and Queens and my father said — and I love my father I learned so much He was a great negotiator I learned so much just sitting at his feet playing with blocks listening to him negotiate with subcontractors But I learned a lot But he used to say “Donald don’t go into Manhattan That’s the big leagues We don’t know anything about that Don’t do it” I said “I gotta go into Manhattan I gotta build those big buildings I gotta do it Dad I’ve gotta do it” And after four or five years in Brooklyn I ventured into Manhattan and did a lot of great deals the Grand Hyatt Hotel I was responsible for the convention center on the west side I did a lot of great deals and I did them early and young And now I’m building all over the world and I love what I’m doing But they all said a lot of the pundits on television “Well Donald will never run and one of the main reasons is he’s private and he’s probably not as successful as everybody thinks” So I said to myself you know nobody’s ever going to know unless I run because I’m really proud of my success I really am I’ve employed I’ve employed tens of thousands of people over my lifetime That means medical That means education That means everything So a large accounting firm and my accountants have been working for months because it’s big and complex and they’ve put together a statement a financial statement just a summary But everything will be filed eventually with the government and we don’t [use] extensions or anything We’ll be filing it right on time We don’t need anything And it was even reported incorrectly yesterday because they said “He had assets of $9 billion” So I said “No that’s the wrong number That’s the wrong number Not assets” So they put together this And before I say it I have to say this I made it the old-fashioned way It’s real estate You know it’s real estate It’s labor and it’s unions good and some bad and lots of people that aren’t in unions and it’s all over the place and building all over the world And I have assets big accounting firm one of the most highly respected 9 billion 240 million dollars And I have liabilities of about $500 million That’s long-term debt very low interest rates In fact one of the big banks came to me and said “Donald you don’t have enough borrowings Could we loan you $4 billion” I said “I don’t need it I don’t want it And I’ve been there I don’t want it” But in two seconds they give me whatever I wanted So I have a total net worth and now with the increase it’ll be well-over $10 billion But here a total net worth ofnet worth not assets not a net worth after all debt after all expenses the greatest assets Trump Tower 1290 Avenue of the Americas Bank of America building in San Francisco 40 Wall Street sometimes referred to as the Trump building right opposite the New York many other places all over the world So the total is $873754000 Now I’m not doing that… I’m not doing that to brag because you know what I don’t have to brag I don’t have to believe it or not I’m doing that to say that that’s the kind of thinking our country needs We need that thinking We have the opposite thinking We have losers We have losers We have people that don’t have it We have people that are morally corrupt We have people that are selling this country down the drain So I put together this statement and the only reason I’m telling you about it today is because we really do have to get going because if we have another three or four years you know we’re at $8 trillion now We’re soon going to be at $20 trillion According to the economists who I’m not big believers in but nevertheless this is what they’re saying that $24 trillion we’re very close that’s the point of no return $24 trillion We will be there soon That’s when we become Greece That’s when we become a country that’s unsalvageable And we’re gonna be there very soon We’re gonna be there very soon So just to sum up I would do various things very quickly I would repeal and replace the big lie Obamacare I would build a great wall and nobody builds walls better than me believe me and I’ll build them very inexpensively I will build a great great wall on our southern border And I will have Mexico pay for that wall Mark my words Nobody would be tougher on ISIS than Donald Trump Nobody I will find — within our military I will find the General Patton or I will find General MacArthur I will find the right guy I will find the guy that’s going to take that military and make it really work Nobody nobody will be pushing us around I will stop Iran from getting nuclear weapons And we won’t be using a man like Secretary Kerry that has absolutely no concept of negotiation who’s making a horrible and laughable deal who’s just being tapped along as they make weapons right now and then goes into a bicycle race at 72 years old and falls and breaks his leg I won’t be doing that And I promise I will never be in a bicycle race That I can tell you I will immediately terminate President Obama’s illegal executive order on immigration immediately Fully support and back up the Second Amendment Now it’s very interesting Today I heard it Through stupidity in a very very hard core prison interestingly named Clinton two vicious murderers two vicious people escaped and nobody knows where they are And a woman was on television this morning and she said “You know Mr Trump” and she was telling other people and I actually called her and she said “You know Mr Trump I always was against guns I didn’t want guns And now since this happened” it’s up in the prison area “my husband and I are finally in agreement because he wanted the guns We now have a gun on every table We’re ready to start shooting” I said “Very interesting” So protect the Second Amendment End end Common Core Common Core should it is a disaster Bush is totally in favor of Common Core I don’t see how he can possibly get the nomination He’s weak on immigration He’s in favor of Common Core How the hell can you vote for this guy You just can’t do it We have to end education has to be local Rebuild the country’s infrastructure Nobody can do that like me Believe me It will be done on time on budget way below cost way below what anyone ever thought I look at the roads being built all over the country and I say I can build those things for one-third What they do is unbelievable how bad You know we’re building on Pennsylvania Avenue the Old Post Office we’re converting it into one of the world’s great hotels It’s gonna be the best hotel in Washington DC We got it from the General Services Administration in Washington The Obama administration We got it It was the most highly sought after or one of them but I think the most highly sought after project in the history of General Services We got it People were shocked Trump got it Well I got it for two reasons Number one we’re really good Number two we had a really good plan And I’ll add in the third we had a great financial statement Because the General Services who are terrific people by the way and talented people they wanted to do a great job And they wanted to make sure it got built So we have to rebuild our infrastructure our bridges our roadways our airports You come into La Guardia Airport it’s like we’re in a third world country You look at the patches and the 40-year-old floor They throw down asphalt and they throw You look at these airports we are like a third world country And I come in from China and I come in from Qatar and I come in from different places and they have the most incredible airports in the world You come to back to this country and you have LAX disaster You have all of these disastrous airports We have to rebuild our infrastructure Save Medicare Medicaid and Social Security without cuts Have to do it Get rid of the fraud Get rid of the waste and abuse but save it People have been paying it for years And now many of these candidates want to cut it You save it by making the United States by making us rich again by taking back all of the money that’s being lost Renegotiate our foreign trade deals Reduce our $18 trillion in debt because believe me we’re in a bubble We have artificially low interest rates We have a stock market that frankly has been good to me but I still hate to see what’s happening We have a stock market that is so bloated Be careful of a bubble because what you’ve seen in the past might be small potatoes compared to what happens So be very very careful And strengthen our military and take care of our vets So so important Sadly the American dream is dead But if I get elected president I will bring it back bigger and better and stronger than ever before and we will make America great again Thank you Thank you very much Read next: How Donald Trump Stole Jeb Bushs Moment Listen to the most important stories of the day Contact us at

“competitor” Trump who was in Belgium for a North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) summit cast his much-discussed relationship with Putin in a competitive light after a reporter asked Trump why he thinks the two leaders will get along ahead of their meeting in Finland next week “He’s a competitor He’s been very nice to me the times I’ve met him; I’ve been nice to him” Trump said echoing comments he made earlier in the week “Somebody was saying ‘Is he an enemy’ He’s not my enemy Is he a friend No I don’t know him well enough But the couple of times that I’ve gotten to meet him we got along very well … but ultimately he’s a competitor He’s representing Russia I’m representing the United States It’s not a question of friend or enemy” "He’s a competitor Somebody said is he an enemy
