Trump Blames Obama Again on Russian Mix Problem

US President Donald Trump once again blames his predecessor for errors in handling Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

"Obama is President before and after the 2016 presidential election. So why does not he do something about Russian interference?" Trump said on Twitter, Monday (19/2). This attack on Obama is the latest in a series of presidential cries.

This is a frequent complaint by Trump, who has alternately underestimated Russian interference and blamed Obama for failing to stop him.

Earlier on Monday, the Kremlin denied involvement in the presidential election AS 2016. Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters that the allegations were unfounded.

The comments came days after US Special Rapporteur Robert Mueller charged 13 Russian citizens and three Russian entities conducting an illegal "information war" campaign to disrupt the electoral process so it is advantageous to Trump.

Trump will Speak at the Annual Anti-Abortion Problem

American President Donald Trump will address the 45th annual March for Life, an anti-abortion event in Washington.

He will speak Friday via satellite from the White House, and will become president the three who spoke at the annual event.

Ronald Reagan spoke in 1987 and George W Bush in 2003 and 2004.

Anti-abortion activists hope the Trump Administration will support their efforts to ban the procedure of abortion.

Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee, said, "We seek to protect babies in any way we are capable through current legislation."

Friday also marks the 45th anniversary of the Supreme Court in the case of Roe versus Wade who legalized abortion in the United States.

Eleanor Smeal, president of the Feminist Majority Foundation, endorsed the ruling. "If we force people to do it artificial out of the will to reproduce at times that are very difficult for them, we really have a negative impact on their health, well-being and family, "he said.

Trump once supported the women's right to have an abortion. But during his campaign, he said there must be a form of punishment for people who have an abortion.

Tobias and Smeal agree that it is a bad idea. [uh]

North Korea Ejects Trump Problem on 'Nuclear Button'

North Korea has issued yet another "shot" in a war of words with the American President, calling Trump's recent remarks on the size of his "nuclear button" compared to Kim Jong-un's "nuclear button" as a "crazy attack" .

The last round of the war of words began with Kim's reminder in a New Year's Day speech that North Korea's nuclear weapon is a "reality" and that he can wage a war by pressing a button on his desk.

Trump responded with a statement mocked via Twitter, saying that he also has a nuclear button, but which is "bigger and stronger" than Kim's, and "my buttons work!"

An editorial published Tuesday by Rodong Sinmun , the official North Korean newspaper, said that Trump's cursing only "reflects the mental state of a desperate loser."

Kim and Trump are involved in a war of words last year following Pyongyang's nuclear and ballistic missile tests, including a sixth nuclear test and a new intercontinental ballistic missile that could potentially reach the American mainland. [lt]

Trump Recognition Problem Jerusalem The Capital of Israel Tuai Negative Reactions

US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel draws criticism in the Arab world, in Europe and other parts of the world.

In his speech on Wednesday (7/12), Trump described his decision as a long-standing move delayed after previous presidents failed to fulfill the US pledge against Israel for 22 years. But the status of Jerusalem is a fierce issue that many countries should negotiate between Israel and the Palestinians.

As expected, Palestine and its supporters across the world are angry at the US president's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

"Trump encourages extremism religious beliefs here and abroad and he blows hard on the prospects for peace in the region, "said Nihad Awad of the Council on American-Islamic Relations or CAIR.

There is concern that this Trump move undermines the chances of a two-state solution in the Middle East UN Secretary General Antonio Gutteres said the status of Jerusalem should be resolved through direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, reiterating that unilateral steps could undermine peace efforts.

"I will do everything within my authority to bring Israeli and Palestinian leaders back to the negotiations which means, "he explained.

Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat said Trump's move disqualified America as one of the players in the Middle East peace process. "It violates international law, human rights, and converts the conflict between Palestine and Israel from political issues into religious issues," he explained.A number of analysts agreed, Trump's decision hinted at the end of the US-led peace process.

"The Palestinian people will not allow this . I think, whoever the Palestinian leader who seeks to agree on it will completely fall in the eyes of his people. I think this is the end of the American-led peace process, "explains Khaled Elgindy of the Brookings Institution.

Nathan Diament, chair of the Orthodox Jewish advocacy group in Washington told VOA, recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel will help revive the peace process.

The announcement from President Trump today and the beginning of the process of moving the embassy sends a very important message to Palestine and others: if you keep going, things will not stay the same, you just lose ground. So, for your sake, first of all, find ways to stop things that are destroying the peace process. "

A US law of 1995 planned to move the United States Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, but so far all presidents before Trump took steps to postpone the plan for security reasons [ab/uh]
