Donald Trump’s debt $650m

    Trump also reportedly relies on a stream of lenders and credit to prop up his opaque and complex network of partnerships and limited liability companies. I’m very rich, Donald Trump has often said to woo the crowds, talking about the fine marble in his hotels and the millions of dollars he has both given to the veterans and to funding his campaign. A New York Times investigation has revealed, however, that his companies are carrying debt of at least $650m (£497m) – more than double the amount that he disclosed in public records. While Allen Weisselberg, chief financial officer of the Trump Organisation, insisted to the newspaper that Mr Trump’s company was a tightly-run family business, his critics have argued that the Republican owns minority stakes in an opaque network o...

Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London has support Owen Smith to win as labour leader and accused to Jeremy Corbyn for uncomplete his role

    The Labour mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has issued a dramatic call to his party’s members to dump Jeremy Corbyn, saying he has been a disastrous leader who must share a large part of the blame for Britain’s forthcoming exit from the EU. Khan, who secured the biggest win by any Labour politician against the Conservative party in more than a decade when he beat Zac Goldsmith to the mayoralty in May, throws his support behind the challenger Owen Smith, arguing that Labour faces all-but-certain defeat at the next general election without a change at the top. The brutal intervention by Khan in an article for the Observer will give a huge boost to Smith’s camp, and comes as the party prepares to send out ballot papers this week to more than half a million members who are eligibl...

Team Britain last great Olympics after Brexit in Rio 2016

    According to Labour’s former Olympics Minister Dame Tessa Jowell: “If, in 2020, we’re looking back at a team GB that has not performed at the level that it did Rio or in London then it will be fair to say that Brexit was one of the reasons. Rio 2016 could be Team GB’s last truly great Olympic Games, as concerns mount that forthcoming political and economic upheaval as a consequence of the UK’s decision to leave the European Union will make it difficult to sustain the investment in sport necessary for British athletes to deliver the dominant performances the country has come to expect from them at Tokyo 2020 and beyond. The former Chancellor George Osborne pledged a 29 per cent increase in exchequer funding for elite sport in what turned out to be his final Autumn Statement...

Bomb Blast at Wedding party In Turkey: Killed At Least 50 people

    At least 50 people have been killed in a "barbaric" suicide bomb blast at a wedding in the Turkish city of Gaziantep, authorities say. Another 94 people were injured in the explosion, which a regional official in southern Turkey has described as a terror attack. Photos from the scene in the Sahinbey district of Gaziantep show a packed street with several bodies covered in white sheets. Veli Can, 25, said: "The celebrations were coming to an end and there was a big explosion among people dancing. "There was blood and body parts everywhere." At least 12 victims have already been buried but other funerals have been delayed because identification is difficult, as many of the bodies were blown apart. Deputy Prime Minister Mehmet Simsek visited the site of the attack, which he d...
