Corbyn sorry over anti-Semitism

    Jeremy Corbyn has said sorry for the hurt caused by anti-Semitism in the Labour Party , in a video message.

Trump: I destroy careers of Republicans who say bad things about me

    President Trump bragged about his prowess in defeating the Republicans who oppose him, saying at an Ohio rally that he destroys the careers of GOP politicians who dare defy him. How do you get 100 percent of anything? We always have somebody who says I don't like Trump, I don't like our president, he destroyed my career, Trump said. I only destroy their career because they said bad things about me and you fight back and they go down the tubes and that's OK, he added. Trump didn't name names, but he's on a winning streak in GOP primaries, as candidates he's backed have repeatedly defeated those he sided against. The most notable example was Rep. Mark Sanford, the former South Carolina governor who lost a GOP primary for reelection to his House seat earlier this sum...
