Jeb Bush says President Trump’s evidence-free claims are kneecapping his first 100 days in the White House. “He should stop saying things that aren’t true, that are distractions from the task at hand,” Bush said in an interview that aired Sunday on Miami’s WFOR-TV.

Ivanka Trump and her family appeared to have settled into their new home in the nation's capital, but their presence in the Kalorama neighborhood of northwest Washington might taking some adjustment for nearby residents. Complaints from the elite D.C. neighborhood surfaced recently, and locals have complained that Trump and her family have taken up too much space on the small street — from street parking to sidewalk space overtaken by full trash bags, the Associated Press reported Saturday.

China Southern Airlines said Tuesday it would sell almost a one-tenth stake to American Airlines in a $200 million tie-up that could see two of the world's biggest carriers cooperate in a range of areas. American Airlines is the world's largest carrier by scheduled passengers carried, while China Southern is fourth globally and the biggest in Asia, according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA). The deal could give American a foot in the door of China's rapidly expanding air transport market, while China Southern said the move would support its own ambitions of expanding its global presence.

Many congressional Democrats are now questioning whether chairman Devin Nunes (R.-Calif.) is capable of leading a credible investigation, amid questions about whether the California Republican may be running political interference on behalf of the White House. Nunes acknowledged Monday that he met with a “source” on the White House grounds just before announcing that associates of President Donald Trump had been caught up in U.S. surveillance.
