Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., took issue with President Trump’s loquaciousness and encouraged him to think about his choice of words more carefully before speaking.

Former Director Comey is in no way a nut job.

Iran accused the United States on Monday of selling arms to "dangerous terrorists" in the Middle East and of spreading "Iranophobia" aimed at encouraging Arab states to purchase arms, state television reported. "Once again, by his repetitive and baseless claims about Iran, the American president ... tried to encourage the countries of the region to purchase more arms by spreading Iranophobia," Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said, a day after U.S. President Donald Trump ended a visit to Tehran's arch-foe Saudi Arabia where arms deals worth almost $110 billion were signed. Sending a tough message to Tehran shortly after pragmatist Hassan Rouhani was re-elected president, Trump had urged Arab and Islamic leaders to unite to defeat Islamist militants, and said Iran had for decades "fueled the fires of sectarian conflict and terrors".

Legislation headed for passage in the Texas Legislature this month could forbid him from using the boys' bathroom and effectively divulge his transgender identity to classmates. "He would be very embarrassed and ashamed to be outed," said Smith, who plans to pull her child out of school if the measure is adopted.

By David Shepardson and Joseph White WASHINGTON/DEARBORN, Mich.

Hackett, 62, a turnaround expert who for the past year has led the Ford unit developing self-driving cars and related projects, replaces Mark Fields, 56, who spent less than three years as CEO. Ford Chairman Bill Ford Jr. said he wanted Hackett to speed up decision-making and cut costs, but did not offer specifics on how the new CEO should change operations at the U.S. No. 2 automaker.

On a sliding scale, collecting a new minivan is probably towards the lower end of excitement levels, while something like a new luxury SUV is probably a lot higher up the scale. The customer with the honor of picking up the first of these incredible cars to be delivered to an American buyer was in Newport Beach in California. The manufacturer has promised all the Centenario's other US buyers will get their cars before the end of this year.
Outgoing boss John Burton, described by the Los Angeles Times as “a fixture in state Democratic politics for half a century”, grinned as supporters on stage at the party's convention joined him in the gesture. The party's leaders blasted alleged ties to Russia among Mr Trump's associates and presented California as the epicentre of liberal resistance to the President. “The world, literally the world, is counting on all of you, counting on California to reject Trump's deception and destructiveness,” said Lt Gov Gavin Newsom, who is among a crowded field of Democrats running for governor next year.

The EU on Monday kept France and Spain on notice for excessive public spending, but absolved bailed-out Portugal after it stayed within the bloc's deficit limit for the first time since 2007. The European Commission, giving its opinions as part of its annual assessment of EU national budgets, also singled out Italy for running a worryingly high public debt. It said Portugal had left the commission's so-called excessive deficit procedure, becoming the first bailed-out nation from the eurozone debt crisis to fall back into the bloc's economic good graces.

Two photographers have crisscrossed North America to escape the light pollution of occupied areas and capture the original beauty of the night sky. Gavin Heffernan and Harun Mehmedinović traveled more than 150,000 miles to a staggering 500 locations across North America in order to capture these images, which feature millions of stars, far-off galaxies and areas of extreme darkness that offer an almost primeval contrast to glowing cities. Heffernan, 37, said the aim of the series, called Skyglow, was to show off the incredible vastness of the night sky, in the hope of inspiring people to care about dark skies.
