Former SARS employee Johan Van Loggerenberg says he is ready to take on the Hawks and NPA in court to clear his name.
The erratic behavior did not end with the campaign and soon became a problem for the new administration. White House chief of staff H. R. "Bob" Haldeman concluded that he had to design a system to protect the President from himself. As Haldeman would describe it in his memoir, "The Ends of Power," it involved a "conspiracy to keep the dark side down; the light side up. "
The tipping point for Haldeman came only six months into the administration, when Nixon ordered wiretaps on every sub-Cabinet official who was in the White House Situation Room. Nixon also dreamed up a scheme that had staffer Pat Buchanan work up a fake National Security Council document to leave in the Situation Room to see if it, too, leaked.
"I realized that many problems in our administration arose not solely from the outside, but from inside the Oval Office — and even deeper, from inside the character of Richard Nixon," Haldeman wrote years later.
It is much too early to say whether Donald Trump will challenge Richard Nixon for the distinction of being the most unstable personality to inhabit the White House in the modern era. His behavior during the campaign, however, does raise some red flags. So, as Donald Trump begins putting together his core group of about 30 advisers and top administration officials -- a chief of staff, Cabinet members -- during this transition, it is useful to see how the US government evolved 40 years ago to meet the challenge of an erratic commander in chief: where the effort succeeded and, sadly, where and why it ultimately failed. The consequences of that failure would have not only domestic but also major global consequences.
One of the persistent myths about our system of government is that the presidency is as much about the advisers around the President as the individual in the Oval Office. This is a case often made when major party candidates lack foreign policy experience. "Don't worry about X," goes the argument, he has good advisers.
But history, which can speak out of both sides of its mouth on many things, is quite clear on the limits of the significance of presidential advisers: Consensus is rare, the top advisers more often than not disagree, leaving the agony of decision to the President. Bob Gates' beautifully written memoir on his years as secretary of defense for two presidents, for example, underscored that it was President Obama who decided how to go after Osama Bin Laden, when his advisers —including Gates — could not agree.
The Constitution makes the President, or chief executive, what George W. Bush later famously called "the Decider. " The election of Nixon meant that for four years, at least, there would be a psychological instability at the center of that strong executive.
Fortunately for the nation, Nixon chose strong individuals to run the Pentagon, who were self-confident enough to try to shield the armed services from an erratic commander in chief. Melvin Laird, a former congressional colleague of Nixon's, was a grounded man with an independent power base who was prepared and clever enough to find ways to prevent bad presidential orders from taking effect.
In his authorized biography, former Secretary of Defense Laird tells the chilling story of a late-night call from Nixon in September 1970. The radical Palestinian terrorist group, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, had just hijacked four planes and flown two of them to an abandoned British airfield in Jordan. The Nixon team debated what to do. Later, in the residence, Nixon apparently lost his patience.
"[B]omb the bastards," said Nixon, slurring his words, and then ordering the use of jets from the carrier Independence. Laird thought the order nonsensical. The only likely effect would have been to ensure the deaths of the approximately 180 passengers held hostage, when at that point they were not actually in any great danger. But Nixon wanted to send a signal to the Soviets, who sponsored the Popular Front.
Fortunately for the hostages, all of whom eventually made it home alive, and for US Middle East relations, Laird prevaricated. "I told him," Laird later recalled for his biographer Dale Van Atta, "we would do the best we could. I didn't have a big argument about it; I just didn't do it. "
In the waning days of the Nixon administration in 1974, James Schlesinger ordered the Pentagon not to implement a presidential order unless it came directly from Richard Nixon. He then told Gen. George Scratchley Brown, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, "that... all the service chiefs should be aware that if there were any messages from the White House, I should be informed immediately. "
Schlesinger worried that Nixon had loyal lieutenants who might want to move troops around the Washington area as a show of force. By that stage in his career, Nixon would not issue this kind of order directly but had created a climate in which someone might order it for him.
The efforts by Haldeman, Laird and Schlesinger to contain Nixon's instability were only as good as the men around the President. Haldeman's 2-year-old containment system ultimately broke down because Haldeman was himself not a good man.
He shared Nixon's hatred of political opponents, his racism and his anti-Semitism, doing nothing to stop the creation of the Plumbers unit, the hiring of Teamster "thugs" to do physical harm to anti-war demonstrators, the politicization of the IRS and the counting of and discrimination against Jewish Americans in the part of the Labor Department that determines the unemployment rate, a so-called "sensitive area. "
A year later, in 1972, at the request of the President, Haldeman would loyally authorize a "dirty tricks campaign" and, also likely at Nixon's request, a political spying unit that repurposed the Plumbers team. Lacking anyone in the White House with the authority and moral center of Melvin Laird or James Schlesinger at the Pentagon, the Nixon administration was soon overwhelmed by the consequences of the stream of criminal orders from a President who lacked self-control.
As Hillary Clinton explained in her concession speech, we owe our new President "an open mind. " Nevertheless, the choices Donald J. Trump makes for his Cabinet and his White House team will say a lot about how he intends to govern and be governed.
Does he choose a Cabinet of equals, who might be able to stop him from making the inevitable rookie mistakes? Will his inner circle at the White House be dominated by people who magnify the darker impulses he expressed in his tweets or by those who would contain the anxieties, doubts and prejudices for the good of the man and the country he will very soon lead?

A crowd of about 200 people wound their way through Portland’s Old Port and downtown district Friday night in a protest against President-elect Donald Trump.
The protesters walked from Monument Square, where the protest began, to City Hall and then the Old Port. Police in cruisers kept pace with the protesters, who stayed largely on the sidewalks, occasionally tying up traffic briefly when they walked through intersections regardless of the traffic lights.
They carried signs saying “Dump Trump” and “Not my president,” and chanted as they walked, “Love trumps hate,” and “No justice, no peace.” Drivers in cars occasionally honked in solidarity, while other drivers leaned on their horns in protest.
One of the organizers of the march, Ellie Hoang, 18, a freshman at Maine College of Art, said she wanted the event to be a nonviolent rally to protest Trump’s election.
“We voted for Hillary,” she said. “The people voted for Hillary.”
Newly elected Portland School Board member Roberto Rodriguez spoke at the march, saying, “Today we are going to project love. We’re going to show the world this city is beautiful and we’re going to stand together and we are going to be stronger together.”

A left-wing charity organization with unknown sources of money is providing the funding for protests around the country — some of which have turned into violent riots — that have threatened a divided nation’s ability to unify after a contentious presidential election.
The Progress Unity Fund is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization — the same classification as the Red Cross. The group’s mission is to “provide a progressive alternative to mainstream charities,” according to its IRS filings.
The fund provides the financial backing for Act Now To Stop War & End Racism (ANSWER) Coalition, a left-wing activist group that began organizing “ emergency protests ” immediately after Trump’s election.
Cities where ANSWER held protests included: Chicago, New York, DC and San Francisco, among others. (RELATED: Media That Warned Of Trump Riots Now Covers Hillary ‘Protests’)
“In a shock result, Donald Trump has been elected president – but the people can rise up and defeat his bigoted, extreme right wing agenda!” ANSWER said in a post-election statement. “The ANSWER Coalition is mobilizing across the country to organize and take part in emergency actions.”
Progress Unity Fund’s website says the group “creates and funds educational and material aid programs, to challenge the barriers and find solutions to the issues creating division.”
But ANSWER describes Progress Unity Fund as its “fiscal sponsor.” And the group is asking its supporters to financially support the next round of anti-Trump protests — Trump’s January 20 inauguration — by donating to the Progress Unity Fund.
The fund’s 2015 IRS filings list just one payment to ANSWER: $9,700 for “educational programs.”
It’s unclear where Progress Unity Fund gets its money — the fund doesn’t publicly list its donors and didn’t respond to a list of questions submitted by The Daily Caller.
ANSWER will hold at least one more protest in Chicago on Saturday, according to posts on the Chicago chapter’s Facebook page. ANSWER did not respond to requests for comment. (RELATED: Leaked Emails Show Clinton Campaign Coordinating With Soros Organization)

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is laying the groundwork for a series of legal challenges to President-elect Donald Trump’s governing agenda.
The public interest law shop and advocacy group blasted a fundraising call to supporters, and emblazoned a mural of resistance across its homepage.
“We need monthly donors—Guardians of Liberty—to provide the ongoing support we’ll need in the coming months. Please stand with us and make your monthly donation now,” a fundraising plea reads.
The ACLU already has already outlined the arguments it will marshall against Trump initiatives in the federal courts. The group released a 28 page report in July, which argued that key aspects of the Manhattan mogul’s governing agenda are unconstitutional. (RELATED: ACLU Preparing For Legal Challenges If Trump Gets Elected)
Styled “ The Trump Memos ,” the analysis encompasses the New York billionaire’s proposals on immigration, torture, libel, abortion, and government surveillance. It effectively serves as a blueprint for the legal arguments the ACLU would marshal against Trump’s initiatives if elected president. The organization released a similar evaluation of former Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
ACLU executive director Anthony Romero released a statement Wed., warning Trump the organization would be “eternally vigilant every single day of your presidency.” The statement reads:
These proposals are not simply un-American and wrong-headed, they are unlawful and unconstitutional. They violate the First, Fourth, Fifth, Eighth, and 14th Amendments. If you do not reverse course and instead endeavor to make these campaign promises a reality, you will have to contend with the full firepower of the ACLU at every step. Our staff of litigators and activists in every state, thousands of volunteers and millions of card-carrying members and supporters are ready to fight against any encroachment on our cherished freedoms and rights.
For his part, Trump is still in the process of assembling the legal team which will advise and represent his administration.

After a campaign full of bombastic rhetoric over things like repealing and replacing Obamacare and sending Hillary Clinton to jail, the realities of legislating appear to be catching up to President-elect Donald Trump.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal , Trump acknowledged there are aspects of President Obama’s signature health care plan that he wants to maintain, like protecting patients with pre-existing conditions and allowing parents to keep their children on their own plans until age 26.
“I like those very much,” he said, according to the newspaper.
Most congressional Republicans would agree that in order to craft a viable alternative to the president’s law, they need to include at least those two aspects, which appear to be very popular with participants in the Affordable Care Act.
Both of the items Trump mentioned are included in House Speaker Paul Ryan ’s “Better Way” health care agenda, although he has not yet offered actionable legislation to achieve them.
Trump also appeared to back off his desire to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, which prompted chants of “Lock Her Up!” at his rallies.
“It’s not something I’ve given a lot of thought, because I want to solve health care, jobs, border control, tax reform,” he said.
The office of Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley , who has vowed to continue investigating Clinton, did not respond to a request for comment.

As fans around the world were on Friday coming to terms with the death of Leonard Cohen, Israel was treating the Canadian Jewish poet and singer as one of its own. Israel's two main radio stations dedicated hours to Cohen songs while Facebook and Twitter users posted pictures of the artist, links to his songs and quotes of his writings in English or Hebrew. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin were among leading politicians pay tribute to Cohen. "Thank you for all of what you left us," Rivlin wrote on Facebook. Cohen was "a great creator, a talented artist and warm Jew who loved the people of Israel and the state of Israel," Netanyahu said on his Facebook page. "I will not forget how he came to Israel during the Yom Kippur war to sing to IDF (army) soldiers, out of a deep feeling of partnership," he added. Cohen, who has died at age 82, was born into a prosperous Jewish family that had founded synagogues in Canada and raised by his grandfather who was a rabbi. He had never changed his unmistakedly Jewish name -- Cohen means priest in Hebrew -- and some of his lyrics draw from Jewish tradition and liturgy. His connection to Judaism manifested in his bond to the Jewish state too, most famously during the 1973 Yom Kippur war between Israel and Arab countries. "I will go and stop Egypt's bullets," he wrote in a poem. Cohen, who was living on the Greek island of Hydra at the time, left for Israel the day after the war broke out, and in Tel Aviv happened to meet Israeli musician Oshik Levi. According to Levi's account, Cohen told him he wanted to help Israel by working on a kibbutz -- a collective farming community from which much of the male work-force would have been called up to military duty. - Singing next to Sharon - Levi talked Cohen into joining the small group of musicians he had formed to tour the frontlines and entertain the Israeli troops. Cohen spent some three months doing so, including in the Sinai peninsula, where he was photographed singing next to then-general Ariel Sharon in a picture circulating on Israeli social media Friday. "I've never disguised the fact that I'm Jewish and in any crisis in Israel I would be there," Cohen said in a 1974 interview. "I am committed to the survival of the Jewish people. " While touring for the soldiers in 1973, Cohen wrote the song "Lover Lover Lover," which includes the line: "And may the spirit of this song, may it rise up pure and free. May it be a shield for you, a shield against the enemy. " Cohen dedicated the song to the Israeli as well as Egyptian soldiers who fought the war. His support of Israel emerged again in 2009, when Palestinians advocating a cultural boycott of the Jewish state tried to pressure him to cancel a show planned for Ramat Gan, near Tel Aviv. Cohen refused but said he could also perform in the West Bank city of Ramallah, an offer turned down by the Palestinians. Cohen used the proceeds from the Israeli concert to establish the Israeli-Palestinian "Fund for Reconciliation, Tolerance and Peace," a group set up by a bereaved Israeli father to change public opinion on both sides towards peace.

GENEVA — Islamic State militants have summarily killed scores of civilians in the Iraqi city of Mosul in recent days, sometimes using children as executioners, and have used chemical agents against Iraqi and Kurdish troops, United Nations officials said on Friday.
Video posted by the militants on Wednesday showed four children, who appear to be 10 to 14 years old, shooting four civilians accused of disloyalty at a location near the Tigris River, said Ravina Shamdasani, a spokeswoman for the United Nations human rights office in Geneva. The video release identified one of the children as Russian, another as coming from Uzbekistan and two as Iraqis.
United Nations investigators had not identified the time of the killings but believed they were recent, citing the surge in executions by Islamic State courts and fighters in and around Mosul in recent weeks and the brutal training the militants have forced on children in the parts of Iraq and Syria they control.
“They are showing they are still in business,” Ms. Shamdasani said of the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, ISIL and Daesh.
In one massacre, militants were said to have summarily shot 40 civilians in Mosul, dressing them in orange clothes adorned with words, marked in red, labeling them “traitors and agents of the I. S. F.,” Ms. Shamdasani said, using the abbreviation for Iraqi Security Forces. Afterward, the militants strung up the bodies of their victims from electricity poles around the city — a practice the Islamic State long used to strike fear into those who live in the group’s strongholds.
The next day, Islamic State fighters shot 20 civilians at a military base in the north of the city and also strung up their bodies with signs carrying statements like “used cellphones to leak information to the I. S. F.,” she said.
The battle for Mosul, with tens of thousands of security forces bearing down on Iraq’s second-largest city, is now almost a month old. At the beginning, the fighting moved relatively quickly because the first objective was to clear dozens of outlying villages that, while they were defended by Islamic State militants, were largely uninhabited by civilians, allowing government forces a freer hand to act without regard for killing civilians.
But in the 10 days since Iraqi counterterrorism forces punched into the city itself from the east, the fighting has slowed, as soldiers go house to house in brutal urban fighting in areas where there are still large numbers of civilians.
Over the past week, the largest numbers of civilians so far have fled the fighting, with close to 48,000 people displaced as of Friday, according to the World Health Organization and United Nations.
But that is nowhere near the total that officials worry could be in danger once the fighting moves to the most populated areas across the Tigris on the west side of Mosul, which is still believed to be home to at least one million people. Reports from inside the city indicate that the Islamic State has set up elaborate defenses on the banks of the Tigris, including artillery pieces.
The United Nations said that militants were reported to have shot six civilians on Oct. 20 for keeping hidden SIM cards in defiance of an order to surrender them. A week later, a 27-year-old man was killed for keeping a cellphone, she added.
Among the witnesses to the recent killings was the sole survivor from a group of 50 former members of Iraq’s security forces who was abducted by militants, taken to the Mosul airport and shot. Although wounded, “he pretended to be dead, escaped, and we spoke to him,” she said.
Meanwhile, a mass grave discovered on Monday by Iraqi troops near an agricultural college in the town of Hamam al-Alil was only one among numerous sites of large-scale killings, Ms. Shamdasani said. The grave contained at least 100 corpses, but Islamic State fighters were also reported to have dumped bodies down a well and at a cement factory yard in the same town, and at several other locations including the Mosul airport and in the Tigris.
On a lengthening list of atrocities reported from Mosul, militants had deployed “sons of the Caliphate,” believed to be teenagers or younger, around the old town armed with explosive belts. They had also brought abducted women, some of them members of Iraq’s Yazidi minority, into the city to distribute them as slaves for their fighters.
Interviews with residents inside Mosul in recent days indicate a pattern of brutality by the Islamic State much like what the United Nations has been reporting, including an increase in the number of boys on the streets carrying rifles and swords. One resident told The New York Times that the Islamic State in recent days had executed 18 former security force members and driven their bodies in the back of a pickup truck to a freshly dug mass grave.
In addition to the Islamic State’s forcibly moving civilians into Mosul for use as human shields to deter attack, the United Nations said it had credible reports of the group’s fighters’ using chemical weapons and chemical agents like chlorine gas against advancing Iraqi and Kurdish forces. Ms. Shamdasani said that Iraqi troops entering the city had found large quantities of sulfur and ammonia stockpiled in civilian areas of the city.
The discovery raised fears that the chemicals could be used as a weapon to slow advancing government forces or punish civilians left behind after militants set on fire and shelled a sulfur gas factory in a subdistrict of Mosul. Their action resulted in the death of four civilians who inhaled fumes from burning sulfur, she added. Militants had also reportedly dumped sulfur in trenches and pits in Mosul and were holding civilians nearby.
Human rights officials are also receiving accounts of revenge killings by pro-government forces, targeting local Sunni civilians they accused of aiding or supporting the Islamic State, deepening fears that sectarian strife will continue after the battle for Mosul has ended.
Voicing outrage at the “numbing and intolerable” suffering inflicted on civilians by the unfolding conflict, the United Nations human rights chief, Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, in a statement on Friday demanded immediate action by the Iraqi government to protect fleeing or freed residents of areas held by the Islamic State and to bring the attackers to justice.
Quick action could save lives by discouraging people from taking the law into their own hands, Ms. Shamdasani said.

ATLANTA - At least 20 wildfires in North Carolina are being investigated as suspected arson, officials said, as firefighters from across the country focused a pocket of fires in the bone-dry southern Appalachian mountains.
A division of the U. S. Forest Service said fires have been burning on more than 25 square miles in the Nantahala National Forest in the western part of North Carolina. Across the South, relentless drought has turned pine trees into matchsticks and forced people from their homes in dozens of communities.
More than 5,000 firefighters and support staff from around the nation are trying to suppress these fires, said Shardul Raval, director of fire and aviation management for the southern region of the U. S. Forest Service.
The effort includes about 40 aircraft, including three large air tankers flying out of Chattanooga, Tennessee. Tens of thousands of acres of forest have burned and about a dozen of the largest fires were uncontained, the forest service said.
High winds and temperatures and weeks without rain have combined to spark blaze after blaze in the unusually dry landscape. Numerous teams reported wind-driven fires racing up slopes and down ravines as they struggled to protect hundreds of threatened structures.
"It just smells like a campfire" along the Appalachian Trail in north Georgia, said Carlie Gentry, who works at the Mountain Crossings store at Walasi-yi, a popular stop for hikers.
"For weeks up here we've been having smoke, but it is getting more intense for sure," Gentry said. Typically, the view stretches for miles, she said. Now, "you can hardly see to the next ridge. "
The national drought report shows 41.6 million people in parts of 15 Southern states living in drought conditions. The worst is in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee, but extreme drought also is spreading into the western Carolinas. Kentucky, Tennessee and North Carolina all have fierce fires.
"Right now we're kind of holding our own," said Jennifer Turner, a spokeswoman for the Kentucky's state Division of Forestry. "We've been able to get control over some of the smaller fires. "
But with humidity so low in the normally lush Appalachians and Great Smoky Mountains, authorities are bracing for more. North Carolina's Gov. Pat McCrory declared a state of emergency for a fourth of his state's 100 counties, to help with evacuations and provide more firefighting assets.
More than 560 firefighters and staff from at least 40 states were battling 18 blazes in the Nantahala National Forest in western North Carolina, and state climatologist Rebecca Ward said some counties are having one of their driest years in 105 years of record-keeping.
"Additional crews, engines, helicopters and air tankers continue to arrive from all across the country to help with the firefighting effort," fire managers told residents Thursday.
Kentucky authorities made two arson arrests and cited another man for causing a brush fire by defying a burn ban. Tennessee authorities also reported arrests for arson and burning violations.
Smoke blowing southward has blanketed Atlanta and other cities in haze.
Alabama extended its ban throughout the state, where drought is choking 80 percent of the land, drying up streams and lakes and turning plants to tinder. Firefighters in Alabama have battled more than 1,100 fires that have charred nearly 12,000 acres in the last month.
One of the largest blazes was spreading rapidly in the Cohutta Wilderness area just south of the Georgia-Tennessee line. Nearly 300 people are battling that fire, which already consumed about 15 square miles, the Forest Service said.
In the hills outside Chattanooga, firefighters were trying to save homes on both Signal Mountain and Mowbray Mountain. They may get reinforcements: The Federal Emergency Management Agency said it would reimburse most of one fire's costs after a request from Tennessee.
Dai Harris, 29, was staying in a local firehouse after being evacuated from his home near Mowbray Mountain. "There's a lot of smoke, and it's covering a broad area, so I assume there's still quite a bit of flames out there," he said.
"I'm getting very concerned, mainly for my neighbors," Harris said. "I'm concerned about their houses now. I'm afraid they're not going to come home to one. "

When would-be immigrants Bernardino and Samuel got word in Mexico of the election of Donald Trump, they immediately gave up their plans to cross illegally into the United States. The rhetoric that originally fueled the billionaire populist's rise to power was built around his ambitious promises to deport the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the US and to build a 'big, beautiful, powerful wall' along the border with Mexico. Now, with the New York Republican's stunning victory Tuesday, fear and uncertainty are surging among undocumented immigrants. Will their workplaces be raided? Will there be mass expulsions? Greater obstacles to gaining legal status? What will happen? No one knows. Samantha Yanez had not caught a wink of sleep. She arrived in the US at the age of six and now, at 21, she knows no other reality. But she has no papers. Because she arrived as a child, she was granted temporary legal status by executive order of President Barack Obama. But Trump has sharply criticized that program and could end it when he takes office in January. 'It's as if I didn't have a country; I'm a foreigner in the only country I know,' Samantha said, her voice quaking. 'I'm insecure. I feel anger, sadness -- betrayed by the American dream,' she added. Bernardino, a 34-year-old Honduran who declined to give his last name, was looking for a 'coyote' to help him slip into the United States near the border city of Tijuana when he abandoned his plan. So did 18-year-old Samuel, a Salvadoran. Both men said they feared that if they are caught, their family members living north of the border might suffer. 'Imagine if they stop me, after a while my family living over there would have problems. 'The truth I never imagined is that the blond man might win,' Samuel said at Padre Chava's breakfast hall, a soup kitchen in downtown Tijuana that provides food and clothing for more than 1,000 immigrants every day. Some 65 percent of Hispanic voters supported Democrat Hillary Clinton, but that was not enough to defeat her Republican rival. The election result left many Hispanics - the largest minority in the country, at 55 million strong - with long, tearful, worried faces. 'We are living in uncertainty, very worried, because we don't know what is going to happen,' said Libertad Sanchez, a 50-year-old Ecuadoran hairdresser who lives in New York and, even after 17 years in the country, still has no papers. Jose Alejo, however, insists he is not worried. Undocumented in the United States for 22 years, he has never had problems. Having absorbed a bitter defeat -- 'I had hoped to have a female president' -- he says he will go on working. Every day at sunrise he arrives at a community center in Pasadena (15 miles, or 25 kilometers, from Los Angeles), where painting, construction, moving, gardening and cleaning jobs are passed out, paying 'enough to get by.' There was talk at the center on Wednesday of the 'Trump tragedy.' But Jose is among those who think that much of the anti-immigrant rhetoric during the fierce election campaign was simply that - talk - and that in the end, things will be 'just like with the other presidents: lots of promises, not much action.' 'Who harvests the crops in the field? Who washes the dishes in the restaurants? Have you seen any American - some blond American - doing it? What would this place be without us?' asks a beefy 47-year-old man. 'And Trump promises to improve the economy, and they need us for that.' Experts predict the white working-class voters who helped propel Trump to the White House will insist he keep at least some of his promises to curb immigration, which included a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States and 'extreme vetting' of immigrants from countries deemed at high risk for terrorism. Hillary Clinton promised during her campaign to carry out far-reaching immigration reform. But Obama had promised the same in 2012 before being blocked by Republicans in Congress. Many Hispanics reproach Obama for having deported some 2.5 million people between 2009 and 2015, more than any other US president, albeit while sparing certain categories such as childhood arrivals and parents of legal residents. The record earned him the moniker of 'Deporter in Chief' from some rights organizations. The question today among worried Hispanics is whether Trump will deport even more. The president-elect has reportedly added anti-immigration Kansas secretary of state Kris Kobach to his transition team -- news that will not allay their fears.

In a statement on Friday, Reid called Trump “a sexual predator who lost the popular vote and fueled his campaign with bigotry and hate,” and argued that the president-elect “must begin immediately” to “roll back the tide of hate he unleashed.”
“The election of Donald Trump has emboldened the forces of hate and bigotry in America,” Reid said in a statement . “White nationalists, Vladimir Putin and ISIS are celebrating Donald Trump’s victory, while innocent, law-abiding Americans are wracked with fear – especially African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Muslim Americans, LGBT Americans and Asian Americans. Watching white nationalists celebrate while innocent Americans cry tears of fear does not feel like America.”
Mother Jones magazine cheered Reed’s comments on, as did many Hillary Clinton supporters still angry over her electoral defeat on Tuesday.
Reid’s bluntness might be explained by the fact that the longtime Nevada senator is retiring from politics. His seat will be filled by Catherine Cortez Masto, former state attorney general and the first Latina to be elected to the Senate.
Trump supporters and Republicans in general, however, accused Reid of hypocrisy and inciting riots.
The president-elect himself condemned “professional protesters” in a tweet on Thursday, after visiting Washington to meet with Obama and the Republican leaders in Congress.
While Obama has made several appeals for an orderly transition of power, several prominent progressives – including Senators Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) – said they would work with Trump on economic issues but resist him on “bigotry” in every way.
Democrats’ discontent is fueled in part by reports coming in from all over the US of Trump supporters insulting and harassing minorities, which Reid’s statement referred to.
One of the most prominent such attacks, however, turned out to be a hoax. On Wednesday morning, a Muslim student at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette reported she had been attacked by two Trump supporters, who knocked her to the ground and stole her wallet and hijab. The woman later “acknowledged she fabricated the report,” AP reported, citing local police.

The shock and anger over Donald Trump’s ascension to the White House has triggered a flood of calls on Twitter and other social media outlets for the president-elect to be assassinated — and authorities will investigate all threats deemed to be credible, The Post has learned.
Trump met Thursday with President Obama in the Oval Office, with the Republican businessman calling the hour-plus session a “great honor.” Obama said they had an “excellent” and “wide-ranging” conversation, while urging all people to “now come together.”
But that message of inclusion was apparently lost in social media circles, particularly Twitter, where a simple search can reveal dozens and dozens of calls to gun down the next leader of the free world. Some posts called for both Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence to be assassinated, and there’s even an #AssassinateTrump hashtag.
“Trump chose the literal worst case scenario as VP so nobody would try to impeach or assassinate him,” one user posted on Twitter.

A suicide car bomber rammed the gate of the German consulate in the northern Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif late Thursday, killing four people and injuring over 100, officials said.
“The blast was too loud and powerful, which shattered windows, and many civilians were wounded inside their homes,” Dr. Noor Mohammad Faiz said, according to the Associated Press (AP). Of the four dead, two were civilians and two bodies are yet to be identified. Faiz said the bodies have been brought to the Balkh hospital. He put the number of people wounded at 115.
According to Abdul Raziq Qaderi, head of security for Balkh province, the explosive-laden vehicle destroyed the gate and the adjoining wall in the attack that occurred around 11.10 p.m. local time (1:40 p.m. EST). “Police have surrounded the area and our forces are inside the compound,” he added.
The German Foreign Office said the fighting occurred both “outside and on the premises of the German Consulate General,” Deutsche Welle reported. Afghan and NATO troops were at the scene. According to a NATO spokesman, the consulate incurred “massive damage” and the troops were evacuating its premises. The German Foreign office has said all German consulate workers were “safe and unharmed.”

The US Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, already in legal limbo after an October court decision, could find its powers scaled back by President-elect Donald Trump and a Republican-led Congress, according to members of both political parties, lobbyists and lawyers.
That may mean the end of many of the agency’s rule-making actions that have enraged critics, including a proposal to stop companies from blocking customers from class-action lawsuits and another one to limit payday lending.
Creation of the CFPB was authorized in the 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law enacted in the aftermath of the 2007-09 financial crisis. The agency began operations in 2011.
An agency to protect consumers’ finances was the idea of liberal Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. Its creation is considered one of Democratic President Barack Obama’s top domestic policy achievements.
A Trump administration is expected to be hostile to the agency as it is currently formulated.
“The election spells very bad news for the CFPB,” said Alan Kaplinsky, head of the Consumer Financial Services Group at law firm Ballard Spahr.
Many Republicans opposed the agency’s creation. They now say they dislike its structure and believe it oversteps its authority in enforcement.
“It’s a very fragile thing. It was birthed in controversy and is under constant attack,” said consumer attorney Deepak Gupta, who worked at the CFPB in its early days. “It may not survive the way we know it through this administration.”
A single director leads both rule-making and enforcement, and can be dismissed only for cause. Furthermore, the agency is funded by the Federal Reserve system, which means it is not dependent on the typical congressional appropriations process.
The Republican-led House of Representatives Financial Services Committee in September passed legislation without any Democratic votes that would change the name and structure of the agency and would create a five-member commission to govern it.
Republicans also have pushed for the agency to receive funds from Congress to make it accountable to elected leaders.
Both of those proposals would greatly weaken the power of Richard Cordray, the agency’s original and current director.
Obama has blocked these Republican efforts with veto threats.
Trump, though he has not directly addressed the CFPB, has said he wants to roll back parts of Dodd-Frank. Trump could, if he wanted to, fire Cordray on the first day of his presidency, especially following an October ruling by a three-judge federal appeals court panel that found the agency’s structure unconstitutional and that the president should be able to dismiss the director at will.
That ruling was put on hold while the CFPB decides whether to petition the entire US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit for a review or appeal the ruling to the US Supreme Court. The agency has until Nov. 25 to decide. Trump’s administration could withdraw any appeal, letting the decision stand.
Cordray, appointed in 2013, is halfway through his five-year term.

Blac Chyna just won the Mannequin Challenge from the delivery room.
The Kardashians are never ones to shy away from a viral trend, and that includes 2016's most popular social media craze.
Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian are the proud parents of a beautiful little girl named Dream. In true Kardashian style, Rob shared several photos of the little girl on his social media account, including a very sweet one with his father.
While Rob's sisters shared deliveries on their family's show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, this one is special, because no one is talking, just posing.
Blac Chyna does look to actually be in labor while the Grandma's cheer her on, but Rob catching the baby is a little far fetched. Mainly because Blac Chyna had a C-section.
The mother-of-two and the new daddy both shared the hilarious video with the perfect caption: "Dream Team #mannequinchallenge. "
Can't help but wonder if this was Dream's Grandmomager's idea.

Alibaba's Singles' Day sales surged past last year's 91.2 billion yuan ($13.36 billion) total with nearly nine hours left on the clock, but growth was markedly slower than in 2015 as shoppers sought even bigger price cuts.
A billion dollars in sales in under five minutes, five billion in the first hour and more than 7 billion by 2AM.
Mega-bucks flooded in for Alibaba's Singles Day.
The biggest event on the global e-commerce calendar kicked off in China at the strike of midnight November 11th with massive sales that blew Black Friday and Cyber Monday out of the water. See what goes into the creation of the global shopping festival:

Boris Johnson has called on European leaders to end the “doom and gloom” about Donald Trump’s election victory and see the US president-elect as someone with whom they can build closer ties.
Speaking after a phone conversation with the vice-president-elect, Mike Pence, the British foreign secretary described Trump as “a deal maker” and called for an end to the “collective whinge-o-rama” which followed Hillary Clinton’s defeat.
The British government is hurriedly seeking ways to engage with Trump, a man several ministers had condemned during his election campaign, including Johnson, who had said he was “genuinely worried” at the idea of a Trump presidency.
One report on Friday claimed that the international trade secretary, Liam Fox, wanted to turn to Nigel Farage to liaise with Trump because the government had no links with his camp.
The story in the Telegraph was, however, immediately dismissed by Downing Street, with a spokesman saying: “ Dr Fox has no plans to talk to Mr Farage .” A Ukip source said there was no truth to the report.
Theresa May talked to Trump on Thursday afternoon, with the president-elect making reference to the close relationship between Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher, a Downing Street source said.
Trump “alluded to their relationship as a way to underline that he was keen to have a good personal working relationship too”, the source said.
Johnson said of his conversation with Pence: “We agreed on the importance of the special relationship and the need to tackle global challenges together.”
Speaking in Belgrade, where he had met the Serbian prime minister, Aleksandar Vučić, Johnson called for a sense of proportion in reaction to Trump’s success.
“I would respectfully say to my beloved European friends and colleagues that it’s time that we snapped out of the general doom and gloom about the result of this election and collective whinge-o-rama that seems to be going on in some places,” he said.
“He is, after all, a deal maker. He wants to do a free trade deal with the UK,” Johnson told reporters. “I believe that this is a great opportunity for us in the UK to build on that relationship with America that is of fundamental economic importance for us, but also of great importance for stability and prosperity in the world.”
Jonathan Marland, David Cameron’s former trade envoy, said Trump’s victory was a “great opportunity to rebuild alliances”.
Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, the peer said: “Our relationship with America has been rocky in terms of trade recently because of the onslaught they had against our banks and against BP and I think business needs certainty. If Mr Trump can show there is a greater certainty and that he is open for business then I think it is very good for British business.”
He added: “Post-Brexit and post-Trump, both countries are going to be looking for allies with which to increase their trade. Both countries will be looking for quick-fix partners post these events and I have no doubt that Trump, whose mother was born in Scotland … will be looking very favourably on economic relationships with the UK.”
Farage has spoken jokingly about the idea of being Trump’s liaison with the EU in Brussels, but his allies say that while he would happily consider being an intermediary for the UK government, there is no realistic chance he would be asked.
The Ukip interim leader is currently in Florida for a private event. In an interview with TalkRadio recorded before he was due to fly to the US, Farage joked about the idea of Trump sexually assaulting May. Imagining the two leaders meeting, he said: “Don’t touch her, for goodness sake,” before laughing. Asked about the likely behaviour of Trump, who has been accused of a series of sexual assaults, which he denies, Farage added: “If it comes to it, I could be there as the responsible adult role, to make sure everything’s OK.”

A man accused of killing a police officer and holing up in an Arizona cabin with a teenage girl believed to have been a hostage was shot dead Wednesday by officers after the gunman opened fire, authorities said.
The shooting of Daniel Erickson, 36, came after he pulled a gun Tuesday and shot Officer Darrin Reed of the Show Low Police Department when Reed was responding to a disturbance at a restaurant, the department said in a statement.
It was unclear whether Reed was shot inside or outside the restaurant in the town of about 10,000 people in Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest.
Erickson fled following the shooting and was found at the rental cabin in the nearby community of Pinetop-Lakeside, where he barricaded himself inside with the girl, said Chief Deputy James Molesa of the Navajo County Sheriff’s Office.
“We assume that she was a hostage throughout the whole thing,” he said.
The girl, who Molesa said was 14, was treated for minor injuries from glass shards. The Show Low department said she was 15. No other details about her were released.
Erickson’s death came after he fired at officers who had surrounded the cabin and they returned fire, Molesa said.
Reed, 50, was married and had a son and a daughter. The former sheriff’s deputy had been with Show Low police since 2006 and was scheduled to retire in February.
“He was known and liked by everybody,” Molesa said. “This will be really tough for this area.”
Several hundred people attended a candlelight vigil for Reed on Wednesday night at a downtown marketplace in Show Low.
No details were immediately disclosed about the restaurant disturbance and Molesa said investigators were conducting interviews to determine a possible motive for the shooting of the officer.
He said Erickson had no outstanding arrest warrants, but an Arizona Department of Corrections online profile for Erickson said he had served prison time over the past decade after being convicted of endangerment and a crime involving marijuana.
Authorities were also investigating whether the girl was at the restaurant with Erickson when the disturbance occurred, Molesa said.
“We were under the impression it was an older woman but it might have been her,” he said.
The cabin was surrounded by a regional SWAT team after investigators determined Erickson was inside, Molesa said.
The standoff went on for hours, and a state police SWAT team took over later because Molesa said the regional team needed to rest.

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons on Friday condemned the use of the banned weapons in Syria and called on the government to allow inspections of sites of concern.
In a statement, the OPCW's Executive Council called on all parties identified in a joint investigation with the United Nations to immediately stop using chemical weapons.
A joint investigation by the U. N. and OPCW found that the Syrian government and the Islamic State group have both used chemical weapons and toxic chemicals as weapons in violation of international law.
The OPCW expressed its sympathy for the victims of the attacks and stressed that "every actor involved in these chemical weapons attacks should be held responsible. "
The Syrian government has denied using chemical weapons. Syria's close ally Russia, which holds a veto on the U. N. Security Council , has said they were not convinced by the evidence turned up by the joint investigation and will not allow for the Mideast nation to be sanctioned.
The joint investigation between the OPCW and the U. N. was developed to determine who exactly has been responsible for the use of chemical weapons in Syria's five-year-long civil war.
The investigation's mandate is set to expire next week and diplomats say Russia will likely block an extension.
Samantha Powers, the U. S. ambassador to the U. N., tweeted that the OPCW's statement condemning the Syrian government for the first time proves that the weapons were used.

Anti-Trump protesters march from the Washington Monument to Inner Harbor Thursday, Nov. 10, 2016, in Baltimore. Scattered protests around the country continue to follow the unexpected election of Donald Trump as president, with hundreds marching in Philadelphia, Baltimore and Grand Rapids, Mich.
By Terrrence Petty and Robert Jablon, Associated Press
Friday, Nov. 11, 2016 | 8:39 a.m.
PORTLAND, Ore. — From New York to Illinois to California, in red states and blue, protesters decrying Donald Trump's election spent another night overtaking highways, smashing store windows, igniting fires and in at least one city, facing pepper spray and rubber projectiles from police trying to clear the streets.
The demonstrations stretched into a third straight night Thursday and came to a head in Portland, Oregon, where thousands of marchers chanted, "We reject the president-elect! " while some lit firecrackers, sparked small blazes and used rocks and baseball bats to break the glass of businesses and vehicles parked at dealerships.
Officers began pushing back against the crowd that threw glass bottles and a trash can, making 26 arrests and using flash-bang devices and pepper spray to force people to disperse.
In Los Angeles, protests were mostly peaceful, but 185 people were arrested, mostly for blocking streets, Officer Norma Eisenman said. An officer was injured near police headquarters, leading to one arrest, but Eisenman had no details about the circumstances or the injury. The officer was released after treatment.
The persisting protests led Trump himself to fire back, tweeting: "Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair! "
His supporters also took to social media to accuse protesters of sour grapes and refusing to respect the democratic process, though there were no significant counterprotests.
In Portland, police termed the protest a riot after some 4,000 people surged into the downtown area. After giving several orders to leave, officers fired rubber baton rounds. It was not clear if anyone was hurt.
In Denver, protesters made their way onto Interstate 25, stopping traffic for about a half-hour. They also briefly shut down highways in Minneapolis and Los Angeles.
In downtown San Francisco, high school students called out "not my president" as they marched, holding signs urging a Trump eviction. They waved rainbow banners and Mexican flags, as bystanders in the heavily Democratic city gave them high-fives.
"As a white, queer person, we need unity with people of color, we need to stand up," said Claire Bye, a 15-year-old sophomore at Academy High School. "I'm fighting for my rights as an LGBTQ person. I'm fighting for the rights of brown people, black people, Muslim people. "
Nearby in Oakland, a group got into some shoving matches with police and 11 people were arrested. Protesters lit street fires, smashed windows and sprayed graffiti on at least seven businesses.
In New York City and Chicago, large groups gathered outside Trump Tower. In New York, they chanted angry slogans and waved banners bearing anti-Trump messages. Police still stood guard Friday on Fifth Avenue.
"You got everything straight up and down the line," demonstrator David Thomas said. "You got climate change, you got the Iran deal. You got gay rights, you got mass deportations. Just everything, straight up and down the line, the guy is wrong on every issue. "
In Philadelphia, protesters near City Hall held signs saying, "Not Our President," ''Trans Against Trump" and "Make America Safe For All. " Officers on bikes blocked traffic for a march that spanned four street lanes and drew parents with children in strollers.
Jeanine Feito, 23, held a sign reading, "Not 1 more deportation. " The Temple University student said she acknowledges Trump as president-elect but does not accept it.
"I'm Cuban-American. My parents are immigrants, and I'm also a woman. These are things Trump doesn't stand for," Feito said. "He's bullied us, discriminated against us, is racist and encourages violence. I think it's important we stand together and fight against this. "
About 500 people turned out at a protest in Louisville, Kentucky, while hundreds in Baltimore marched to the stadium where the Ravens were playing a football game.

As a Donald Trump presidency becomes a reality, the country is confused whether he will implement the ban on Muslims entering the country as he stated he would do last year.
A press release stating the ban was published on his website in early December, following the attacks in San Bernardino, but was later removed from the site. The press release is now back up live on his website since Thursday, just two days after his election win.
The press release states, "Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on. "
Trump's campaign explained the disappearance of the press release to the Washington Post saying, "the website was temporarily redirecting all specific press release pages to the homepage. It is currently being addressed and will be fixed shortly. "
We're going to have to wait to see what happens when Trump s in office as he says his three top priorities are immigration, jobs and healthcare.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump isn’t going to rip up the Iran nuclear deal on day one as president, but his vows to renegotiate the terms and increase enforcement could imperil an agreement that has put off the threat of Tehran developing atomic weapons. Emboldened Republican lawmakers are already considering ways to test Iran’s resolve to live up to the deal.
As a candidate, Trump issued a variety of statements about last year’s pact. He called it “stupid,” a “lopsided disgrace” and the “worst deal ever negotiated,” railing against its time-limited restrictions on Iran’s enrichment of uranium and other nuclear activity, and exaggerating the scale of U. S. concessions.
Trump said that he doesn’t want to simply tear up the agreement. Instead, he spoke of reopening the diplomacy and declared that unlike President Barack Obama’s diplomats, he would have been prepared to walk away from talks.
Trump’s exact plans are vague, however, and a renegotiation would be difficult. Iran has little incentive to open talks over a deal it is satisfied with. And none of the other countries in the seven-nation accord has expressed interest in picking apart an understanding that took more than a decade of stop-and-go diplomacy and almost two full years of negotiation to complete.
As Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has said: If the U. S. tears up the agreement, “we will light it on fire.” President Hassan Rouhani said this week no country could simply change what was agreed, pointing to a U. N. Security Council resolution that endorsed the package.
The deal, which went into effect in January, forced Iran to pull back from the brink of nuclear weapons capacity in exchange for an end to many of the U. S. and European sanctions that devastated Iran’s economy. It has been largely respected despite undiminished U. S.-Iranian tensions throughout the Middle East, including their support for rival sides in Syria and Yemen’s civil wars.
Each side has leverage: Iran doesn’t want a new onslaught of U. S.-led economic pressure and America would be alarmed by any Iranian escalation of its nuclear program. But the accord rests on fragile ground, with powerful contingencies in Washington and Tehran vehemently opposed and looking for any excuse to break it apart. In such a climate, it’s unclear what Trump’s demands for a renegotiation might mean.
“The agreement is valid only as long as all parties uphold it,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner acknowledged Wednesday in the agency’s first briefing since Trump’s stunning election victory over Hillary Clinton to become the 45th president.
Last summer, Walid Phares, a Trump adviser on the Middle East, said Trump wouldn’t pull out of an agreement with America’s “institutional signature,” but rather revise elements through one-on-one negotiations with Iran or with a larger grouping of allies.
Daryl Kimball, executive director of the pro-deal Arms Control Association, said that re-litigating the deal would unsettle American allies, with no clear picture of what Trump would be trying to accomplish.
Trump could also send the deal to Congress, whose Republican majority has opposed it.
GOP lawmakers are examining a slew of possible actions. Among the likeliest pieces of legislation is one targeting sectors of Iran’s economy supporting ballistic missile work, including those specifically exempted from sanctions under the nuclear deal. Another goes after Iran’s Revolutionary Guard for its military activity in Syria and support of terrorism.
Iran could use either as an excuse to push past the limits of the nuclear deal, which may partly explain Republican motivations.
Trump has largely avoided talk of killing the agreement, but has said he would police the deal “so tough they don’t have a chance.”
The U. N. nuclear agency has confirmed minor Iranian violations, specifically on its stockpiling of heavy water that can be used in plutonium production. It has faced no punishment. Iran also has repeatedly breached a ballistic missile ban that was extended for eight years under the nuclear deal, prompting some limited sanctions from Washington.
The Obama administration has been hamstrung. Determined to protect the president’s foreign policy legacy, it has gone above and beyond the agreement’s stipulation that no new nuclear-related sanctions be introduced.
When Yemen’s Iran-backed Shiite rebels fired missiles at U. S. Navy vessels, the retaliatory action didn’t extend to Tehran. Nor has Iran faced repercussions for joining Syria and Russia’s offensive in Aleppo, which has drawn U. S. charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity.
And whenever top Iranian officials have complained about the speed and scope of their post-deal economic recovery, top Obama officials like Secretary of State John Kerry have served as pitchmen to international banks and companies hesitant about investing in Iran.
“It is a whole new reality,” said Mark Dubowitz, an Iran sanctions proponent at the hawkish Foundation for Defense of Democracies. What does he expect from Trump? “No more free lunches for the Iranians, no more unilateral concessions, no more excuses.”

Islamic State fighters have killed some 70 civilians in Mosul this week over accusations of collaboration with Iraqi forces pushing into the city to drive them out, the United Nations has said.
It said in a report that IS reportedly shot and killed 40 people on Tuesday after accusing them of "treason and collaboration", dressing them in orange jumpsuits and hanging their bodies from electrical poles.
The report said that in another incident, the extremists reportedly shot to death 20 civilians in the Ghabat Military Base on charges of leaking information.
Those bodies were hung at various traffic lights in Mosul, with notes stating that they had used mobile phones to leak information.
The reports were the latest evidence of IS exactions on civilians as it retreats into dense urban quarters of Iraqi's second largest city.
Iraqi troops are inching ahead in their battle to retake Mosul
The UN also revealed fresh evidence the extremists have used chemical weapons.
Exchanging small arms and mortar fire with IS positions, the special forces have entered the Qadisiya neighbourhood, advancing slowly to avoid killing civilians and trying to avoid being surprised by suicide car bombers, said Brigadier General Haider Fadhil.
Regular army troops control 90% of the Intisar neighbourhood, said one officer, but progress had slowed because "the streets are too narrow for our tanks".
Iraqi troops are converging from several fronts on Mosul, the second-largest city and the last major IS holdout in Iraq. Kurdish peshmerga forces are holding a line north of the city, while Iraqi army and militarised police units approach from the south, and government-sanctioned Shiite militias guard western approaches.
The offensive has slowed recently as the special forces - the troops that have advanced the farthest - push into more densely populated areas of eastern Mosul, where they cannot rely as much on air strikes and shelling because of the risk to civilians who have been told to stay in their homes.
Meanwhile, the UN human rights office has cited new details as proof that IS is using chemical weapons, which many fear the extremist group has and is saving for if they are cornered or about to lose the city, still home to more than a million people.
Amid concerns about IS' use of human shields in the city, rights office spokeswoman Ravina Shamdasani said four people died from inhaling fumes after IS shelled and set fires to the al-Mishrag Sulfur Gas Factory in Mosul on October 23.
Speaking to reporters in Geneva, Ms Shamdasani said reports indicated IS has stockpiled "large quantities" of ammonia and sulphur that have been placed in the same areas as civilians.
"We can only speculate how they intend to use this," she said. "We are simply raising the alarm that this is happening, that this is being stockpiled. "
She added that international law requires protection of civilians near such chemicals.
"There does not have to be an intention to target civilians with the use of these chemical weapons, but particular care must be taken to avoid this affecting civilians," Ms Shamdasani said.
"If that particular care is not taken, or if action is taken instead through negligence or through active action, to cause damage to civilians, then this is clearly prohibited - this is a war crime. "
UN officials say about 48,000 people have now fled Mosul since the government campaign began on October 17.

(CNN)Thousands protesting Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election took to the streets for a third night of demonstrations and vigils in several US cities.
An anti-Trump rally in Portland, Oregon, revved up as protesters confronted police Thursday night. What started out as a peaceful march, with more than 4,000 people, quickly turned violent.
Over the course of the evening, “anarchists” in the crowd threw objects at officers, vandalized local businesses and damaged cars, Portland Police Sgt. Pete Simpson said.

Omarosa Manigault , the former “Apprentice” contestant who was the Trump campaign’s director of African-American outreach, said she caught “a lot of flak” and received death threats for supporting the president-elect.
“I was called every single racial slur in the book that you could direct towards an African-American by African-Americans,” she said through tears.
The campaign aide told ABC News' “20/20” that her support for Trump led to her being frozen out by some of her friends and family members, including one who was supposed to be a bridesmaid in her wedding this spring.
“I will never forget the people who turned their backs on me when all I was trying to do was help the black community,” Manigault said. “It's been so incredibly hard.”
Tune in to ABC News "20/20's" "The Making of a President," TONIGHT at 10 p.m. ET
Manigault was an active presence on the campaign trail, stumping for Trump at events across the country, and was criticized at times for making controversial remarks. At the Trump victory party on election night, the conservative online news outlet Independent Journal Review quoted Manigault as saying the Trump campaign had kept “a list” of people who didn't support his run for the White House.
"Let me just tell you, Mr. Trump has a long memory, and we're keeping a list," Manigault told the news outlet, while also suggesting that South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham was an enemy.
But Manigault told “20/20” she made those comments “in jest.” The Trump campaign hasn’t commented on whether such a list exists.
“Everything that we say has consequences. I mean, words matter,” she told “20/20.” “And so something I say in jest will be a headline, and it happened to me at our victory party that I said something in response to Lindsey Graham not honoring his pledge to support the nominee, and then it became a headline.”
Manigault also appeared in an interview for a PBS special in September and said, "Every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down to President Trump. It's everyone who's ever doubted Donald, who's ever disagreed, whoever challenged him. It is the ultimate revenge to become the most powerful man in the universe. "
In her interview with “20/20,” Manigault clarified her statement, saying she was speaking her opinion at the time and not speaking on behalf of the campaign.
“That wasn't an official statement from the Trump campaign,” she said. “That was just all me.”
Manigault said she met Trump for the first time while taping season one of his reality TV series, “ The Apprentice .” It was during that time Trump was recorded having an off-camera conversation with Billy Bush in which the president-elect made extremely lewd comments about women. The tapes of that conversation were leaked this October, 11 years later, and became known as the infamous “Access Hollywood” tapes.
“I think everybody was a bit offended, and it’s inexcusable, and I won’t excuse it in any way,” Manigault said of the taped conversation. “He’s apologized … I don’t want to see what happens in men’s locker room, of what men say amongst themselves. I don’t want any part of that, and that’s exactly what I feel like I was listening in on, a conversation that I shouldn’t have been privy to.”
“I have never seen him act inappropriately in the 14 years that I’ve known him,” she added.
Manigault said she has stuck by Trump because he has never stopped supporting her career. After her time on “The Apprentice,” she eventually partnered with Trump to create a reality dating television series.
“He found a way to incorporate me into every single thing that he did because he believed in me,” she said.
It doesn’t matter if the cameras are on or off, she said, Trump is the same person.
“Donald Trump doesn’t turn it on or off. He is who he is,” she said. “Everyone tried to define him and put him in boxes, and that’s why they get him wrong, and that’s why they underestimated him in this race.”

CHICAGO -- Police are investigating the beating of a man in a Chicago neighborhood by a group who yelled that the victim voted for Donald Trump , CBS Chicago reports .
Police said it was unclear what motivated the attack the day after Trump won the presidential election, saying it started after a traffic altercation.
Video of the attack was posted Wednesday on YouTube. It shows a man being beaten by a group of people while his car sits in the middle of an intersection. A person recording the video can be heard saying, “You voted Trump. You voted Trump.”
The Chicago Tribune reports that the man, David Wilcox, said he voted for Trump but no one in the crowd would have known.
Police said a 50-year-old man was attacked and beaten by three males and two females at the intersection in the North Lawndale neighborhood. One of the attackers stole his car and fled the scene, according to police.
In the video, the victim appeared to try to get back into his car as he was being attacked and tried to pull one of the assailants out of his car. Other attackers continued to the beat him and appeared to steal some belongings that fell out of his hands and pockets.
A longer version of the video was posted on Twitter with profanity-laden music laid over the audio. In that longer version, the victim is seen being dragged off while hanging on to the driver’s side of the car.
“This is unacceptable and must be condemned by everybody,” said the Rev. Michael Pfleger in response to the video. “Violence is never an acceptable response. Emotions are raw coming out of this election, but frustration, anger and despair do not give permission to be violent.”
Chicago police said the victim was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition.
No one was in custody Thursday morning. Detectives were investigating.

An unusual bug on Facebook briefly labelled many people as dead.
The error on Friday caused the social network to show a memorial banner on user profiles for people who were still alive.
Users posted status updates to reassure friends and family they were not dead, despite Facebook's message.
"This was a terrible error that we have now fixed," a Facebook spokesperson said. "We are very sorry that this happened. "
The message, intended for "memorialised profiles", erroneously appeared on the profile pages of a large number of users - including Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
"We hope people who love Mark will find comfort in the things other share to remember and celebrate his life," the banner on his page read.
Both technology reporters and Facebook users, however, saw a humorous side to the story.
"Why Is Facebook Saying I'm Dead? " asked the New York Times' Katie Rogers. "At first, I was indignant. I was definitely not dead. (Was I? It had been a long week.)"
"Facebook is capping one of the longest weeks in American history by telling everyone that they are dead," quipped The Verge , a technology website, in reference to the presidential election.
The memorial feature was introduced by Facebook in 2015 after a number of high-profile cases where family wanted to access the social accounts of deceased loved ones.
User can opt to have their account turn into a memorial page upon their death, where Facebook contacts can leave message and share memories.
An alternative option is to have your account deleted after your death.

Former Democratic National Committee chair Howard Dean told MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle Friday morning that the allegations the party rigged the primary for Hillary Clinton are 100 percent false.
“Did the DNC fail Democrats by nature of — I mean, they cleared the field for Hillary,” Ruhle first posed to Dean. “They served her up on a silver platter and gave Democrats very little other choice. I mean, Bernie Sanders came out of nowhere.”
“That is not true,” the failed presidential candidate responded. “They did not clear the field. The DNC doesn’t have the power to clear the field.”
“It was a great race,” he continued, apparently oblivious to the mountain of evidence making the exact opposite argument. “Hillary Clinton won it for a variety of reasons. Bernie, I think, contributed an enormous amount to the party and I’m very glad he ran.”
“To say the DNC may have tried to clear the field — They don’t have that much clout in the presidential race.”
On Thursday, Dean argued that following Hillary Clinton’s stunning loss to Donald Trump, the DNC needs a new strategy and new leader.
Further, he added that while he might not be the hero the DNC deserves, he’s certainly the the hero they need right now.
The dems need organization and focus on the young. Need a fifty State strategy and tech rehab. I am in for chairman again.

“We believe that we lost this election in the last week,” Navin Nayak, the head of the campaign’s opinion research division, wrote in an email late Thursday to the campaign’s senior staff. The email was obtained by Politico.
“Comey’s letter in the last 11 days of the election both helped depress our turnout and also drove away some of our critical support among college-educated white voters — particularly in the suburbs,” Nayak added.
On Oct. 28, Comey sent a letter to Congress in which he said that new evidence had been found that may relate to the FBI’s closed investigation of Clinton’s emails. He suggested that the investigation was being reopened. The Clinton campaign blasted Comey for issuing a vague letter that provided few details about what the new evidence might be.
Comey attempted to redress those grievances on Sunday, when he sent out another letter stating that the new evidence did not change the FBI’s decision in July to not charge Clinton with mishandling classified information.

“We also think Comey’s 2nd letter, which was intended to absolve Sec. Clinton, actually helped to bolster Trump’s turnout,” he wrote.
Clinton’s loss was a surprise to most. Polls had her leading Trump by three or four points nationally. She also had healthy leads, according to the polls, in states like Michigan and Wisconsin which Democrats had dubbed the blue state firewall. But Trump carried those states along with Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida.
Other post-mortems have blamed the Clinton campaign for ignoring white working class voters. Bill Clinton reportedly pressed campaign organizers to reach out to those groups. But the data-driven campaign team opted instead to focus on turning out Latino and African-American voters.
Nayak wrote that early vote turnout was “dramatically up” in battleground states like Florida and Colorado. Internal data showed that Clinton had strong support in the early vote and that “a winning coalition” of women, African-American, Latino and college-educated white voters would carry her to victory.
“But then everything changed in the last week,” wrote Nayak.
“Voters who decided in the last week broke for Trump by a larger margin (42-47). These numbers were even more exaggerated in the key battleground states.”
Nayak cited two major events that occurred in the last week.
“Director Comey released his first letter 11 days out from the election, which likely helped to depress turnout among Hillary’s supporters,” he wrote, adding that “two days before Election Day, Director Comey released a 2nd letter, which energized Trump supporters.”
Nayak also suggested that strong early vote numbers may have led to “a significant drop in Election Day turnout, particularly among Hillary supporters.”
“This was noticeable in both larger cities such as Philadelphia, Raleigh-Durham, Milwaukee, and Detroit and the suburbs surrounding these and other cities,” he asserted.
“There is no question that a week from Election Day, Sec. Clinton was poised for a historic win,” but “in the end, late breaking developments in the race proved one hurdle too many for us to overcome,” Nayak continued.
He did acknowledge that macro forces may have generated headwinds for Clinton.
“Global forces that we’re driving deep-seated anger at institutions the world over, and an angry and alienated electorate at home that was frustrated with our political economic system,” he wrote.
He also cited “the inherent desire for change after one party occupies the White House for two-terms” and “the unprecedented task of electing the first woman to the highest office in the land” as roadblocks to Clinton’s path to the White House.

BISMARCK, N. D. (AP) — The Texas company developing the Dakota Access pipeline says it’s offered to help pay law enforcement costs related to protests.
Energy Transfer Partners says in a statement Friday that it’s made the offer to the state “but it has not moved beyond that at this time.”
A spokesman for Gov. Jack Dalrymple said the governor’s office hadn’t seen the offer yet and wouldn’t speculate on whether the state would accept.
North Dakota’s shouldered most law enforcement expenses to date, even paying for officers from elsewhere. North Dakota already has approved a $10 million line of credit with its state-owned bank to cover the costs.
The pipeline’s designed to carry oil from North Dakota to a shipping point in Illinois. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and its supporters argue that it threatens drinking water and cultural sites. The company insists it’s safe.

SAN DIEGO -- Donald Trump’s attorneys on Thursday agreed to enter settlement talks in a class-action fraud lawsuit involving the president-elect and his now-defunct Trump University , raising the possibility of a quick end to the 6 ½-year-old case just before it goes to trial. Daniel Petrocelli, Trump’s lead attorney on the case, also asked to delay the trial to early next year, saying Trump needed time to work on the transition to the presidency. “The good news is that he was elected president. The bad news is that he has even more work to do now,” Petrocelli told U. S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel.
President-elect Donald Trump is due in court at the end of the month for the Trump University lawsuit's trial. CBS News justice reporter Paula Re...
The lawsuit alleging Trump University failed on its promise to teach success in real estate begins in San Diego on Nov. 28 before Curiel, an Indiana-born jurist who Trump accused of bias during the presidential campaign for his Mexican heritage. Both sides accepted Curiel’s offer to work with U. S. District Judge Jeffrey Miller, who is based in San Diego, on a possible settlement. “I can tell you right now I’m all ears,” Petrocelli told Curiel. Patrick Coughlin, an attorney for the former students who sued, told reporters that previous attempts failed. “We’ve been miles apart,” he said outside the courthouse. Curiel didn’t signal how he would rule on the request for a trial delay, but he encouraged efforts to settle. He has been reluctant to postpone it any longer. The judge said more than 100 potential jurors would be in court Nov. 28, and nine would be picked to begin hearing arguments no more than two days later. He expects both sides to finish presenting their cases around Dec. 14. Petrocelli said it was unlikely that Trump would attend the trial, and Curiel said he didn’t expect he would. The attorneys argued for nearly three hours over tentative rulings that Curiel issued earlier in the day on what evidence to allow jurors to hear.
Curiel said he was prepared to deny a request by Trump’s attorneys to prohibit statements made by and about their client during his campaign. The highly unusual petition would apply to Trump’s tweets, a video of Trump making sexually predatory comments about women, his tax history, revelations about his private charitable foundation and public criticism of the judge. Curiel noted Trump’s attorneys didn’t specify what campaign-related evidence they wanted to exclude and that he would consider specific objections at trial. Trump’s attorneys didn’t challenge the judge further on that point, but they objected to many other decisions, including his refusal to allow many customer surveys and Trump’s claims of a 98 percent customer approval rating. The lawsuit filed in 2010 on behalf of former customers says Trump University gave seminars and classes across the country under the guise of being an accredited school, which it wasn’t, and pressured people to spend up to $35,000 on mentorships from Trump’s “hand-picked” instructors. The claims largely mirror another class-action complaint in San Diego and a lawsuit in New York. Petrocelli told reporters in May that Trump planned to attend most, if not all, of the trial and would testify. At the May hearing, Petrocelli asked for a trial after Inauguration Day on Jan. 20, but the judge raised concerns about distractions if Trump won the election. The attorney said then that the period between the election and swearing-in is extremely hectic for a president-elect but that it was preferable to holding a trial during the campaign.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus Friday advised people protesting Donald Trump's election to "take a deep breath" and use the weekend to work toward recovery, while insisting Trump is now showing his true personality through his calls for unity.
"It's the other side now that doesn't want to accept the fact that they lost the election," Priebus told ABC "Good Morning America" anchor George Stephanopoulos. "I think everyone needs to just take a deep breath, take the weekend — today's Veterans Day — count our blessings and let's come back on Monday. "
Trump enjoyed his meeting with President Barack Obama on Thursday, said Priebus, and came away "very impressed" with his first face-to-face meeting with the nation's outgoing leader.
"You had a 10-minute meeting that went 90 minutes because both of these guys probably had a great time together," Priebus said. "I can tell you, personally, President-elect Trump in private is the kind of guy that most people would want to have a beer with, although he doesn't drink. And I'm sure President Obama's the same way. That was not show. "
Priebus, also appearing on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" on Friday, commented that moving forward, Trump's 100-day plan for working on national security, immigration, the economy and more are important.
"We have a mandate, and the American people decided to put the Republicans in control of the House, the Senate, and the White House, and that means that we now need to execute the will of the American people," said Priebus.
"The will of the American people is to execute a plan to get this country moving forward again and President-elect Trump that is, is going to make that happen. "
Trump's mandate, Priebus continued, is one "that our country hasn't seen since Ronald Reagan across the entire Midwest, so the plan is going to get executed, and I think the American people should be encouraged by what President-elect Trump has said both on Wednesday morning and what he's done yesterday. "
Priebus has been mentioned as a potential chief of staff for Trump, but on Friday said that is "not something I'm talking about right now. "
"I'm sitting here at the RNC and it's a great job, and that's the one I'm doing," said Priebus.

A small fire erupted Friday inside Brooklyn’s Trump Village, a cooperative apartment building created by the President-elect’s father, officials said.
Firefighters raced to the 23-story W. 5th St. building near Neptune Ave. in Brighton Beach about 10:30 a.m. after a blaze broke out in a fifth-floor apartment.
Smokeaters put out the fire within 10 minutes, an FDNY source said. Paramedics treated one person with smoke inhalation at the scene, officials said.

In 2003, David Bacon was firing mortars in Baghdad as part of the first wave of infantry in the firefights that took place. But that was nothing compared to the battle he would eventually face back home in West Michigan, which he fought and won with the help of veterans treatment court.
Ten years later, the former U. S. Marine had totaled his car after driving drunk — not his first DUI — and was classified as “super drunk” (blood alcohol level of 0.17 or higher). Shortly after that, Bacon entered the newly established West Michigan Regional Veterans Treatment Court in Allegan where he underwent a rigorous program to address the underlying addiction that threatened his life and landed him in court.
Unfortunately for too many military veterans returning home from active duty, Bacon’s story is not unusual.
With approximately 3 million veterans serving in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts alone, many have returned home with life-altering physical and psychological scars that affect family, friends, and even their communities.
Although our courts serve populations on opposite sides of the state, our collective mission is the same: offering veterans dealing with these scars the structure, support, and assistance they need to turn their lives around and stay out of the criminal justice system, thereby reducing the re-offense rate. Michigan vet courts have also been successful in slashing unemployment among graduates by more than half.
We are very proud that our state is a national leader with 25 veterans treatment courts that solve problems and save lives. Three short years ago, we had just eight. This is evidence of the growing demand for programs like these around the state. And thanks to funding from the governor, the state legislature, and the Supreme Court’s State Court Administrative Office, these courts can continue to make a difference.
Veterans treatment courts promote sobriety, recovery, and stability through a coordinated response that involves collaboration with a variety of traditional partners found in drug courts and mental health courts, as well as the Department of Veterans Affairs, volunteer veteran mentors, and organizations that support veterans and veterans’ families.
The connection between the courts and the VA helps provide veterans in the program with enhanced access to benefits they are entitled to as a result of their service to our country. In most of these courts, veteran mentors are also assigned to the participants to give them an opportunity to connect to someone else who can serve as a friend or buddy.
“It builds you back up—not exactly like the military, but it gives you steps to take along the way,” Bacon explained. “There is also a certain type of camaraderie in the program, and that is something you miss the most when you leave the military. In vet court, everyone’s still looking out for each other.”
Bacon has been sober for more than two years, is gainfully employed, and continues to volunteer his time in the court that saved his life.
Simply put: these courts work.
Hon. William Baillargeon is presiding judge, West Michigan Regional Veterans Treatment Court. Hon. Karen Khalil is presiding judge, Redford Veterans Court.

While most MLB clubs will focus on SIERA, WHIP and FIP with their starting pitcher acquisitions this offseason, the Atlanta Braves are taking a hard tilt toward AARP.
Barely a week into the hot-stove season, the Braves have made two pre-emptive strikes to fortify their rotation: On Thursday, they signed 42-year-old R. A. Dickey to a one-year, guaranteed $8 million deal with a club option for 2018. And they'll add a fellow cardigan-sweater-wearing, "Antiques Road Show"-watching devotee to the mix when 43-year-old Bartolo Colon completes his physical exam and agrees to a guaranteed $12.5 million deal.
As teams forage for opportunities amid a woeful free-agent market, the Braves' early flurry makes two things abundantly clear: 1) They were intent on finding protective cover for a young, developing pitching staff; and 2) they think they're closer to fielding a winning team in 2017 than others do.
The Braves finished last in the National League East at 68-93, but they won 12 of their last 14 games, 20 of their last 30 and 24 of their last 38 after bottoming out at 45-79 on Aug. 21. The performance was encouraging enough for president of baseball operations John Hart and general manager John Coppolella to resist the temptation to acquire a big-name manager, instead opting to bring back Brian Snitker on a one-year deal with a club option for 2018.
First baseman Freddie Freeman established career highs with 34 homers and a .968 OPS and will probably finish just outside the top five in National League MVP voting. Ender Inciarte won a Gold Glove and logged 3.6 Wins Above Replacement in center field. Shortstop Dansby Swanson looks like a player the Braves can build around, and Matt Kemp slugged.567 after the All-Star break. If Kemp can ramp up his conditioning this offseason and be less of a defensive liability in 2017, so much the better.
Best of all, Atlanta's farm system is deep and on the rise. But the waves of young pitchers need time to develop, and the acquisitions of Dickey and Colon give the Braves latitude to exercise patience from the big-league roster down the line.
Colon always looks as if he's one pulled muscle away from retirement, but the man known as "Big Sexy" went 15-8 with a 3.43 ERA for the New York Mets last season and is working on a streak of four straight seasons with at least 190 innings. According to FanGraphs, he threw his 87.9 mph fastball 89.5 percent of the time in 2016. If all he does is teach Julio Teheran , Mike Foltynewicz , Matt Wisler and Atlanta's young pitchers the value of a well-placed heater, he'll earn a substantial chunk of his money.
It's worth noting that Hart was general manager in Cleveland when the Indians signed Colon as a 20-year-old amateur free agent out of the Dominican Republic in 1993. Hart was gone by the time the Cleveland Indians traded Colon to Montreal for a package that included Cliff Lee, Grazy Sizemore and Brandon Phillips in 2002, but now the two are reunited as the Braves prepare to make the move from Turner Field to SunTrust Park.
Dickey's 2016 season ended in disappointment when he was left off the Toronto Blue Jays ' postseason rotation, but he handled the situation with class and never caused a ripple of discord in the clubhouse. Dickey ranked fourth in the majors behind James Shields , Clayton Kershaw and Felix Hernandez with 1,097 innings pitched from 2011-15, and he should benefit from a return to the National League, where he won 2012 Cy Young honors with the Mets.
If the Braves can pick up where they left off in September, opportunity awaits in the NL East. The Washington Nationals are a formidable team. But the Philadelphia Phillies are rebuilding, the Miami Marlins are reeling from the loss of Jose Fernandez, and Noah Syndergaard is the only member of the Mets' young rotation who'll show up at spring training without some sort of medical issue.
While other teams with starting pitching issues debate whether to pursue Chris Sale or Sonny Gray in trades or invest in multi-year deals for Rich Hill and Ivan Nova , the Braves settled on a strategy and pounced. They're committed to $20.5 million guaranteed for Colon and Dickey next season, and nothing more.
Maybe the plan works out, maybe it doesn't. But it's certainly defensible. And if you have a soft spot for aging guys who practice their craft with imagination and flair, it should be a heck of a lot of fun to watch.

Johannesburg – The Democratic Alliance (DA) will lay charges against Eskom CEO Brian Molefe following his resignation, the party said on Friday.
Molefe resigned following former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's report, in which he was mentioned numerous times.
"The DA welcomes today's decision by [Molefe] to resign in the face of most serious revelations against him by the Public Protector," DA MP and spokesperson for public enterprises Natasha Mazzone said in a statement.
Mazzone said the party would lay charges against Molefe in terms of the Public Finance Management Act and Prevention and Combating of Corruption Act.
She said the party had requested Parliament's portfolio committee on public enterprises to summon Molefe as a matter of urgency about his relationship with the Gupta family.
"It is suspicious that he has resigned after we began the process of getting him to come clean under oath in Parliament. "
She said Molefe's resignation could be seen as an admission of guilt.
Molefe featured extensively in the State of Capture report, which was released following a court order.
The report included damning details on the relationship between Molefe and the controversial Gupta family.
Molefe and Ajay Gupta, the eldest of three Gupta brothers, made 58 telephone calls to one another between August 2015 and March 2016, according to the report.

When the Associated Industries of Massachusetts held its global trade symposium last month, the panel of businesspeople were supposed to speak on the subject “tough times for trade.” Instead, they were remarkably upbeat.
China? “It provides us tremendous opportunity,” said one attendee.
Brexit? The British market has growth potential, another said.
Mexican border wall? “We develop relationships that go through the years, not just the ebbs and tides of what global trade may do,” added a third in a followup interview.
Whatever the shock of a Donald Trump presidency, international sales are going forward, container ships are sailing, and foreign trade will continue. But Tuesday’s election has injected huge uncertainty into its future direction.
Mr. Trump's bigger problem is that even if he succeeds in getting the better trade deals he seeks, they won’t deliver the jobs he wants, economists say. Economists have detected sweeping employment losses and lower wages because of trade with China have also found that automation is a much bigger driver of job loss. Economists have also shown that the losses from trade have been aggravated because the United States economy is not as resilient as it once was and is far slower to bounce back.
Fixing these twin problems – the challenge of automation and a less resilient economy – won’t come from any trade deal. It would seem to require labor-adjustment policies that the GOP has traditionally opposed, calling them big government giveaways. Hardly the conventional Republican, Trump would appear to have a freer hand to address these problems. But it’s anybody’s guess whether he will.
“The effect of a Trump election is going to be a huge uncertainty,” says Robert Lawrence, a professor of international trade and investment at Harvard’s Kennedy School in Cambridge, Mass.
"It's a wait-and-see," says a senior officer of one large New England exporter, who asked not to be named.
The reason: Trump's campaign has been light on specifics.
Even on a signature issue like trade, Trump has been hazy about details. The closest he came to specifics was in a speech on trade in June in Monessen, Pa.
He laid out seven steps he would take. Four of them involve taking a much tougher stance with trade partners, especially China, when they violate trade laws that hurt American workers. The US trade representative could bring trade cases against China, for example. And Trump could have China labeled a currency manipulator.
The focus on China is needed, many trade critics say, because it has in the past manipulated its currency and its accession to the World Trade Organization greatly accelerated imports into the US. According to a 2013 study , Chinese imports caused 25 percent of the manufacturing employment losses between 2000 and 2007, nearly 1 million workers, and depressed wages even in non-manufacturing sectors of the economy. Many US companies have filed charges and complaints about Chinese theft of trade secrets.
Another Trump step is to appoint “the toughest and smartest trade negotiators to fight on behalf of American workers.”
The last two steps involve scrapping two trade deals.
One of them, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, negotiated between the United States and 11 nations around the Pacific Rim, faced an uphill battle in Congress, no matter who won the presidency. Trump has promised to kill it.
That’s a blow to increased world trade but hardly the end of the world.
“Trade is slowing and trade deals are becoming less popular, but the driving forces of investment are going to continue,” says Ted Moran, nonresident senior fellow with the Peterson Institute for International Economics, a Washington think tank. “If Europe, Canada, Japan, and Korean firms continue to invest … American firms are going to have to match their moves.”
The other trade deal in Trump’s sights is more concerning. He wants to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which has regulated trade among the US, Canada, and Mexico for 22 years. If he can’t renegotiate a much better deal for American workers, he says he intends to withdraw from it.
Trump, the author of “The Art of the Deal,” knows you can’t reopen a deal without some kind of leverage: either a carrot or a stick.
For Trump, it seems to be a stick.
One possibility, of course, is that Trump ditches his campaign rhetoric and follows far more traditional Republican policies once he reaches the White House. Many corporations are hoping he'll follow that course. But if Trump's campaign rhetoric is to believed, then he appears to be pointing to a new approach to US trade, one based on the principle that creating and preserving US jobs would be paramount.
Since the end of World War II, both Republicans and Democrats have promoted globalist trade policies that lower tariffs and set fair and transparent rules for how the world exchanges goods – a regime that has increased Americans’ incomes by an estimated $1 trillion a year.
But starting with NAFTA, US negotiators also increasingly pushed for labor, environmental, and social standards in trade deals. That's in line with Democrats' desire for standards that discourage foreign sweatshops, make foreign governments act more transparently, and level the playing field for US workers who already have those protections. TPP was the poster child for this new kind of deal.
Conservatives have balked at these measures, especially when they take away power from legislatures to determine their own rules and standards.
Now, such goals would take a back seat.
For some critics of trade policy, Trump should be even more assertive. “It behooves the US to move toward a more unilateralist trade policy stance,” says Alan Tonelson, an economic policy analyst who blogs at RealityChek. “Access to the US market is not a right that any country deserves a priori. It is a privilege granted by Washington.”
For those who see trade through a global lens, the Trump rhetoric is retrograde.
“For people who believe in economic internationalism, this is terrifying,” says Susan Aaronson, research professor of international affairs at George Washington University in Washington.
The obvious danger is that threatening the use of tariffs could easily prompt other nations to issue countertariffs in a replay of the disastrous trade wars sparked by America’s Smoot-Hawley tariffs in 1930.
The more subtle challenge is if better terms of trade don’t deliver the job growth that Trump expects. If it doesn’t, he may have to expand America’s paltry programs for assisting and retraining workers hurt by trade.
"The United States should be known not just as a country of labor flexibility where it's easy to hire and fire, but a country of genuine labor mobility, so that workers can acquire new skills, enter new fields and tap on economic opportunity that comes with geographical mobility," said Mireya Solís, a senior fellow of foreign policy at the Brookings Institution, at a trade debate in held in Washington last month. "And this calls for a host of social and labor market policies, wage insurance, retraining, expanded tax benefits for the working poor. "
Conventional Republicans reject such big government solutions. Unconventional Trump has yet to weigh in.

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Latest on deliberations in the murder trial of a white officer in the shooting of an unarmed black man (all times local):
The judge overseeing the murder trial of a white police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black man near the University of Cincinnati has deflected a jury question about the definition of arrest.
Hamilton County Judge Megan Shanahan convened jurors weighing a decision in the case against Ray Tensing after they asked for the definition late Friday afternoon.
Shanahan told jurors they had all the information they needed to reach a verdict and ordered them to resume deliberations.
The question related to conditions under which victim Sam DuBose could have been considered to be evading arrest.
It’s the second time Shanahan told the jury to keep working.
Earlier Friday jurors told the judge they couldn’t reach a decision on murder or voluntary manslaughter charges against Tensing, who was fired from his job after the shooting.
Jurors have told a judge they can’t reach a decision in the murder trial of a white former police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black man near the University of Cincinnati. The judge told them to keep deliberating.
The jury told Hamilton County Judge Megan Shanahan on Friday they couldn’t reach a decision on murder or voluntary manslaughter charges against Ray Tensing, who killed 43-year-old motorist Sam DuBose during a traffic stop in July 2015.
Shanahan told jurors they have enough evidence for a decision and to keep working.
Jurors got the case at noontime Wednesday.
The 26-year-old Tensing has said he feared for his life when DuBose tried to drive away.
Jury deliberations have stretched into a third day in the murder trial of a white former police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black man during a traffic stop near the University of Cincinnati.
Hamilton County Judge Megan Shanahan sequestered the jury of 10 whites and two blacks for a second night Thursday. They arrived Friday to resume deliberations.
The judge says jurors requested to review testimony by experts on police use of deadly force. Twenty-six-year-old Ray Tensing has said he feared for his life when 43-year-old Sam DuBose tried to drive away in July 2015.
Authorities, downtown businesses and schools have been monitoring developments closely. Some businesses released employees early Thursday, and at least two schools closed in anticipation of a verdict that could bring strong reactions.

GHAZIABAD, India, Nov. 11 (UPI) -- At least 13 people died in India on Friday after a fire broke out in a clothing factory in the city of Ghaziabad's Sahibabad industrial district, near New Delhi, in the Uttar Pradesh state, local officials said.
Ten people died of suffocation and three from burns. At least nine people were injured by the fire, including four who were seriously burned, a local government official told The Indian Express. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
Some of the survivors were asleep when the fire began at about 4 a.m. local time. Police said the factory is an illegal establishment.
"They said they didn't know when the fire broke out. They were sleeping in small rooms and 10 died of suffocation," Ghaziabad district magistrate Nidhi Kesarwani told the Hindustan Times.
The fire was reported to officials at about 5:20 a.m. Chief fire officer Akshay Ranjan Sharma said firefighters struggled to reach the building.
"The road is barely 9-10 meters [29-32 feet] wide and is crowded with material and parked vehicles. Still, we put up a ladder and rescued the trapped workers," the fire officer said.

WASHINGTON -- A Donald Trump administration could radically reshape the Justice Department, particularly civil rights efforts that became one of its most pressing and high-profile priorities over the past eight years.
Now that Donald Trump is the president-elect, he's going to do one big interview. Where? Where else but 60 Minutes. Tune in this Sunday, Nov. 13 ...
The department, under the Obama administration and the country’s first two black attorneys general, has investigated about two dozen police agencies for civil rights violations and reached court-enforceable consent decrees with many of them. It refused to defend a federal law that banned the recognition of same-sex marriage. It sued North Carolina over a bathroom bill that it said discriminated against transgender people. And it implemented new racial profiling limits on federal law-enforcement agencies.
But Trump’s election has stirred concern from civil rights advocates that some of that work could be undone, set aside or at least minimized under a Trump administration.
“The Civil Rights Division was just building a head of steam over the last two, three years, and it raises really serious concerns about whether we now lose traction on these issues,” Anthony Romero, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union, said of a section that former Attorney General Eric Holder called the “crown jewel” of the department.
Donald Trump is back in New York after his first day in Washington as president-elect. He spoke with President Obama, where they buried the campa...
One overt change could come in the department’s approach toward policing and relationships between law enforcement and the communities they serve, an issue that’s moved to the public forefront in the last two years.
Trump’s talk of a “law and order” approach to crime fighting and his praise for stop-and-frisk police tactics are out of step with a Justice Department that has advocated community policing and decried strategies it considers unconstitutional or discriminatory.
“He talked about things like the war on police, that we need more stop and frisk, that the Black Lives Matter movement has placed police officers at risk in ways that are really concerning,” said Jonathan Smith, a former Justice Department civil rights official who oversaw the investigation into discriminatory practices by the Ferguson, Missouri, police force.
Protests against Donald Trump's election victory surged and grew violent overnight. Police in Portland, Oregon, described the protests as a "riot...
“The last law-and-order president was Richard Nixon,” Smith said.
The rhetoric resembles that of Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor who’s expected to be considered for the position of attorney general.
Under the Obama administration the Justice Department has opened wide-ranging investigations of 23 police departments, including those in Baltimore, Chicago and Ferguson. It’s enforcing 19 agreements, including 14 court-enforceable consent decrees.
Donald Trump will be working with a Republican-led Congress. On Thursday the president-elect met with the GOP Senate and House leaders to discuss...
While those agreements are unlikely to be reversed, new attorneys could be lax in enforcing them or in requiring meaningful change when additional police departments come under scrutiny, Smith said. And different leadership may see less value in some of the community meetings and round-table discussions promoted by Justice Department officials as a way to seek reconciliation between police and minorities.
Also subject to change is the department’s overall approach to the thousands of drug prosecutions it brings each year, embodied in a 2013 policy initiative known that discouraged prosecutors from seeking harsh prison sentences for nonviolent offenders.
A new administration might also seek changes on the national security front, including how terrorism cases are prosecuted and broader surveillance powers - particularly of Muslims.
Political strategist Dan Senor, former senior adviser to the Romney-Ryan presidential campaign in 2012, joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss the i...
Attorney General Loretta Lynch acknowledged the prospect for change Thursday, saying in a speech that while “some policies and priorities may shift over the span of time or the turn of the electoral wheel.”
Career attorneys throughout the Justice Department, including at the Civil Rights Division, are intended as a stabilizing and apolitical force across different administrations, but there hasn’t always been a clear line. A 2008 inspector general report identified instances in the Bush administration when the Civil Rights Division considered political and ideological affiliations in hiring career attorneys or assigning cases.
But it’s the department’s political appointees, who routinely change with presidential administrations, that “set the tone and the direction and determine the vigor of civil rights enforcement,” Romero said.
Lawyers from the US Justice Department will head to Ferguson next week to start implementing reforms after a report found widespread racial bias ...
At the Civil Rights Division, that includes its leader, Vanita Gupta, a former ACLU attorney who earlier in her career led an effort to overturn wrongful convictions of drug defendants in Texas.
Under her watch, the federal government has routinely become involved in state and local matters that officials believe brush up against constitutional protections.
That includes a directive to schools that they permit students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity, and a policy document discouraging municipal courts from jailing citizens for nonpayment of fines and fees. In an Idaho case, the department also argued that local police can’t arrest the homeless for sleeping in public, and worked in Tennessee to get juvenile suspects access to attorneys.
New department leadership could well take different stances on issues like those, or steer clear of federal intervention altogether. And while federal civil rights statutes will surely remain on the books for enforcement, advocates are concerned that their causes won’t have the same commitment they’ve had under President Obama.
“We intend to fight, we intend to ensure that we do not go backwards,” Sherrilyn Ifill, president of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, told reporters Thursday. “We believe that we have the Constitution and the laws of our nation on our side.”

The case of Kala Brown, the kidnapped woman in South Carolina found chained inside a storage container , has revealed the twisted tale of a potential serial killer.
Investigators are looking for more bodies on the property of an alleged serial killer in South Carolina. Todd Kohlhepp is charged with killing fo...
Brown lived to tell her story. Investigators say Brown’s alleged captor, Todd Kohlhepp , has admitted to seven killings, reports CBS News correspondent David Begnaud.
“Todd was not a monster,” Regina Tague, mother of self-confessed killer Kohlhepp, told Begnaud.
“He’s not even close to it… He wasn’t doing it for enjoyment. He was doing it because he was mad and he was hurt,” she added.
“Given what your son has admitted, your son is the definition of what’s known as a serial killer,” Begnaud pointed out.
“I hate that,” Tague said, choking up. “I know that’s what they say… he was a very misunderstood.”
But Sheriff’s deputies say there’s no misunderstanding. Kohlhepp is responsible for at least seven murders. His dark past came to light when 30-year-old Brown was found on Kohlhepp’s property. She and her boyfriend Charlie Carver were missing for two months.
“She was banging very hard on the container,” Spartanburg Sheriff Chuck Wright said. “She was bound. There was a chain from the top of the cage to something else that went around her neck. She was distraught, panicked.”
Her boyfriend Charlie Carver was not as fortunate.
“She said she witnessed him being shot,” Wright said.
After being taken into custody, Kohlhepp asked to speak to his mother. She said he told her everything and said, “I’m sorry, mom.”
“Did he cry?” Begnaud said.
“Mmmhmm,” Tague said. “His eyes looked horrible. They were red.”
“Why did he kill her boyfriend?” Begnaud asked.
“Because he got nasty and got smart-mouthed,” Tague said.
“Why did he chain that girl up?” Begnaud asked.
“Because he didn’t know what to do at that point,” Tague said.
“She saw, evidently, him kill her boyfriend, and he didn’t know what to do with her, he couldn’t turn her loose. She’d go get the police,” Tague said.
Last Saturday Kohlepp took Sheriff Wright to his property. He showed him where he had buried Carver and two drifters he murdered after allegedly hiring them to work on his property.
“He was very polite and remorseful, actually. I said a prayer with him,” Wright said.
What would take everyone by surprise was when Kohlepp also admitted to gunning down four people in a notorious cold case that became known as the Superbike Murders. Kohlhepp had wanted to return a motorcycle.
“They laughed at him, made jokes at him,” Tague said.
“Everybody’s hurt. He hurt everybody,” Tague said of her son.

SANFORD, Fla. – George Zimmerman was removed from a Florida bar Wednesday night after berating a waitress, using racial slurs and accusing another patron of assaulting him, according to WKMG .
The incident happened at the Corona Cigar Company after a 911 report of an incident of battery involving a woman there with Zimmerman and his friends.
A deputy from the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office responded, and while he was reviewing surveillance footage in the back of the business, Zimmerman allegedly got into a shouting match with a waitress by the bar.
The woman told the deputy that Zimmerman snatched a credit card from her while she tried to settle the bill and began yelling at her. The manager said others in Zimmerman’s group were using racial slurs toward other people in the bar.
He also said Zimmerman has a history of disturbances at the Corona Cigar Company.
Zimmerman told the deputy a black customer hit him twice and said he wanted to press charges. However, surveillance video shows the man, 38-year-old Floyd L. Narcisse, holding out his hand as if asking for a handshake, then patting Zimmerman twice on the shoulder when Zimmerman refuses, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
“It appeared as if he was attempting to engage in a friendly gesture with Zimmerman as a reasonable person would do,” the incident report reads.
Narcisse told the paper, “I was like, ‘Hey, George. How are you?’ … I tapped him on the shoulder.”
The deputy asked Zimmerman if he wanted to make an official statement, but Zimmerman refused and “became belligerent,” according to the incident report. A friend calmed him down and he eventually filled out the form.
Zimmerman allegedly threatened to sue the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, writing:
“I want to press charges. The narrative on the front is true and correct. Officer Nickell is an incompetent officer under qualified to flip burgers.”
As he left the bar, Zimmerman called the manager a racial expletive, the deputy wrote.
No arrests were made during the incident.
Zimmerman was acquitted in the fatal 2012 shooting of an unarmed black teen named Trayvon Martin.

Thursday's ruling is a victory for plaintiffs who wanted government to do more than make bottled water and tap-water filters available at distribution points.
District Court Judge David Lawson ruled that unless government can certify that a Flint home has a well-installed and maintained water filter, or unless a household declines service, officials must deliver at least 96 half-liter bottles of water per resident to each household every week, until the court says otherwise.
Lawson ordered government to show him how it is complying with his order by December 16.
"Judge Lawson's wise ruling ensures that all Flint residents finally will have access to a reliable supply of safe drinking water until the lead pipes are replaced," said Michael J. Steinberg, legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan.
The city "will do everything we can to abide by the order, including reaching out to leaders at the state level for help," Flint Mayor Karen Weaver said.
"We appreciate the judge's order and agree that clean water should be easily accessible to everyone in the city of Flint and more needs to be done to make that happen," she said in a news release.
Some filters installed incorrectly
Exactly how many of the city's roughly 34,000 households would receive water-delivery service isn't clear.
The state already hands out free water filters and bottled water at distribution points across the city. A leader of the state's handout effort testified that at least 90% of the households on the city's water system have the filters, which the city recommends residents use before drinking or cooking with Flint tap water.
But a filter's presence in a home doesn't necessarily mean it's working. The leader of a nonprofit group that helps residents install them testified that the process is difficult, and that as many as 52% of the more than 400 homes that the group visited has some type of problem with the filters, court documents read.
One of the plaintiffs, Flint resident Melissa Mays , said Friday that government currently does not check the filters' installation.
"One of the things we discovered is some people don't have cartridges in the filter," rendering them ineffective, Mays said. "And some of the models don't show when the filter is (expired). "
Mays' family is not using a filter, in part because of guidance that she's received that the filters aren't sufficient for people with certain health challenges. At least one of her sons is immunocompromised, and she has an autoimmune disorder, she said.
So her family relies on bottled water, and Lawson's order will be a relief, she said.
She and her husband have had trouble picking up the water before the distribution points close; he has had to use his lunch break, she said.
Still others in the city don't have reliable transportation, she said. She said she recently saw a man discard a couple of cases of water because he was too frail to carry them onto a bus.
"Now the state and city can hire local people ... to go and take care of their neighbors. That's exciting," she said.
The Flint government argued that door-to-door water delivery and filter service would be cost prohibitive and force it to "reallocate other personnel and money away from" restoring its water system, court documents say.
But "Flint's monetary concerns, although valid, are not enough to tip the scale in their favor in light of the physical harm that flint residents have been exposed to," Lawson wrote in his ruling.
"And even if it did delay the process, it is in the public interest to address the immediate health and safety needs of residents before addressing the long-term needs," Lawson wrote.
What is the crisis?
Two years ago, in a move to save money, the state switched Flint's water supply from Lake Huron to the Flint River, a tributary notorious for its filth. The Department of Environmental Quality failed to treat the corrosive water, which ate into the city's iron and lead pipes, causing lead to leach into the drinking water.
Last year, researchers and medical personnel discovered high levels of lead in Flint residents, especially children. Lead has been tied to a host of medical problems, especially in the nervous system.
People experienced rashes and hair loss last year when high levels of lead were found in the local water supply.
The city switched back to the Lake Huron water supply in October 2015. In January, the governor declared a state of emergency, one month after the city's mayor did.
Lead-tainted pipes at 295 homes have been replaced so far, and the mayor hopes to have new lines installed at 700 more homes by year's end, the city's website says.
"While the level of lead in Flint's water supply has been substantially reduced since the city switched back a year ago to water delivered from Lake Huron by the Great Lakes Water Authority, residents are still being urged to drink only filtered water, and to replace their filters when needed," the website says.
Charity organizations also have helped , establishing additional distribution points where people can drive through and pick up bottled water, and by handing out water door to door.
Nine current and former state and local officials face counts ranging from willful neglect of duty to conspiracy over allegations they withheld information from the public about lead contamination in the city's drinking water.

The man attacked by a group of black people spoke out on his assault, describing it as a traffic accident that quickly escalated in a brutal attack.
A viral video circulating the internet shows a group of black people punching and kicking 49-year-old David Wilcox. Bystanders watched Wilcox’s attack, cheering as two black men kicked Wilcox in the stomach and punched him in the face. (RELATED: Black Hillary Supporters Assault White Trump Supporter)
Wilcox explained that the attack started after another car pulled up next to him and sideswiped him, according to an interview with The Chicago Tribune.
When he stepped out of the car to exchange insurance information, a black man at the bus stop said, “Yeah that’s one of those white boy Trump supporters,” according to Wilcox.
The black people from the car started to attack him, Wilcox maintained.
“The next thing I know, the guy said, ‘Don’t worry about it, we’re going to beat his ass.’ And then punches were thrown and the next thing I know, I have five people on me and I fell to the ground. I was kicked in the head. They were in my car, stealing all my stuff, ” Wilcox said. “I tried to go the car, I got hit some more. I tried to get into a defensive stance to try and ward them off a little bit.”
Wilcox said that while he voted for Trump, no one who attacked him would have known that. He believed that the people who assaulted him were motivated by the onlooker’s taunts.
Wilcox said it seemed like the anti-Trump rhetoric came from the bystanders watching his attack. He filed a police report, but police have not been able to locate any suspects.
“Regardless of who said those statements, the department is taking this very seriously, and that type of divisive rhetoric is not acceptable,” Anthony Guglielmi, chief police spokesman, told The Chicago Tribune.

nypost.comMayors of NY, LA speak out on immigration after Trump's win
In the wake of Trump’s victory on Tuesday, anti-Semitic vandalism, hate speech and violence have been reported across the country.
The news isn’t unlike the aftermath of June’s Brexit vote , when immigrants suffered a 57 percent increase in xenophobic harassment and abuse. At the time, Brits started wearing safety pins to show solidarity and support for anyone who felt scared or in danger. Now Americans have adopted the same gesture.
#SafetyPin and #SafetyPinUSA began trending on Twitter Thursday night. Users posted pictures wearing a pin attached to their coat, or sweater, declaring themselves an ally in the fight against intolerance.
The trend originated when an American living in Britain during Brexit posted the suggestion on Twitter , writing “that anyone against the sort of nationalistic, racist violence we’ve been seeing could identify themselves as a ‘safe ally.’”
The user, who only ever identified herself as Allison, tweeted that she was inspired by the #illridewithyou movement in Australia. The hashtag began trending after the 17-hour hostage situation inside a Sydney cafe that left three, including radical Islamist gunman, dead. People offered to sit or walk with Muslims who felt threatened, or nervous of a backlash, on their commutes.
“If you put the pin on, to me you are pledging to stand up,” she told the Guardian in June. “You are pledging to make a difference.”

A Zimbabwean court has dropped charges against a professional hunter accused of allowing an American dentist to kill Cecil, a lion whose death in 2015 prompted an international outcry.
Theo Bronkhorst was charged with failing to prevent an illegal hunt after leading dentist Walter Palmer to Cecil, a lion that was popular with tourists and was wearing a GPS collar as part of a research project.
Mr Bronkhorst subsequently applied to a court, arguing that the charge was vague and that the circumstances did not constitute a chargeable offence.
His lawyer, Perpetua Dube, said the court upheld the application. Prosecutors can still pursue the case.
Zimbabwe initially said it would charge Mr Palmer but later dropped that plan.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - The president-elect of the Village of Caledonia has vowed to fight for his post while serving 60 days in jail for third-offense drunken driving.
MLive (http://bit.ly/2eoUS8H ) reports that 53-year-old Todd Grinage was sentenced Nov. 3, five days before the general election. He won the race with 371 votes, compared to candidate Danise Regan’s 260 votes.
Grinage stood in the lobby of the Kent County Jail on Thursday and apologized for his mistakes. He says his convictions for DUI don’t have anything to do with his ability to lead the village.
Grinage’s attorney, Andrew Rodenhouse says the drunken-driving offense only alleges Grinage had a blood-alcohol level over 0.08 percent, which isn’t enough to satisfy requirements to remove an elected official from office.

For Donald Trump, the presidency offers no escape from tax audits — raising the chance that the public might never see his returns.
As a candidate, Trump cited more than a decade's worth of audits by the Internal Revenue Service as he refused to release any of his personal tax information. As president, he'll be subject to IRS administrative procedures that call for mandatory examinations of the chief executive's tax returns.
That continued scrutiny raises questions about whether Trump will ever make his tax returns public. By tradition, sitting presidents release their returns annually, but there's no law requiring the president to do so. And there's no indication that Trump — fresh from an unorthodox campaign — plans to embrace that tradition.
"What Trump showed was that nobody really cared about his returns," said Stephen Moore, an economist who advised the billionaire businessman on tax and economic policy. "At this point, I don't think it matters in his mind. " Spokeswomen for Trump didn't respond to e-mailed requests for comment.
Federal ethics rules require the president to file annual financial disclosures detailing assets, liabilities and income within ranges, along with a list of entities in which he holds an interest. But that form doesn't detail the taxes an individual has paid.
Trump's taxes dogged him during the campaign, as Democrat Hillary Clinton cited media reports to allege that he hadn't paid federal income taxes for years. "That makes me smart," Trump responded.
Now, though, a lack of transparency on the new president's taxes might damage the public's regard for the IRS, which is already one of the federal government's most lambasted agencies, tax specialists say. Trump will have the authority to appoint the agency's head and recommend its annual budget for approval by Congress.
"Trump would be the boss over the agency reviewing him, so isn't that a lot of pressure for them to do the audit in a certain way? " asked Richard Schickel, who spent more than three decades as a senior IRS revenue officer handling high-priority, delinquent accounts before retiring in 2013.
Schickel, who now runs RMS Consulting LLC, a tax-consulting firm in Tucson, Arizona, also said that "whatever the White House wants from the IRS they get, because that's where the funding comes from. "
The agency's own rules, designed to protect taxpayers, will leave it up to Trump to permit any public scrutiny. Federal law prohibits IRS officials from discussing specific taxpayers, but in an e-mailed statement, the agency stressed that its audits are "handled by career, non-partisan civil servants, and the IRS has processes in place to safeguard the exam process. "
"The IRS has procedures in place that adhere to internal control standards, which help ensure fairness and integrity in the return selection process," according to the statement.
After Trump cited audits in declining to release his tax returns, various commentators said there's no rule or law preventing people from releasing their returns, even if they're under audit. Nonetheless, tax advisers have said that a release might have enabled members of the public to find deficiencies auditors missed — adding to any potential tax liability.
Since the 1970s, when then-President Richard Nixon ran into personal tax trouble, the IRS has had a formal administrative procedure that says in part: "The individual income tax returns for the president and vice president are subject to mandatory examinations. "
Trump said in February that he had been under continuous audit for the past 12 years; his lawyers released an unusual letter in March that said the years 2009 forward remained under review.
Trump filed the annual financial disclosures that are required of candidates; his most recent one, in May, listed ownership interests in more than 500 entities, such as limited liabilities and partnerships.
His campaign said at the time that the form reflected $557 million in income, mainly from real estate, licensing golf resorts, casinos, hotels and rentals since January 2015. But the form appears to have conflated net income and gross revenue for some of his largest properties.
While federal law prohibits any executive-branch officer from requesting that the IRS begin or end any investigations of a particular taxpayer, the president has the right to seek the resignation of the agency's head. IRS commissioner John Koskinen, whose term expires in November 2017, has said he'd resign immediately if the next president asks him to.
Some House Republicans have called for Koskinen's impeachment over his handling of the agency's response to revelations that it targeted conservative groups for additional scrutiny over their applications for non-profit status before he took office.
Regardless of who's in charge, the tax agency can't escape showing a certain amount deference to the White House, said David Herzig, a tax law professor at Valparaiso University.
"The IRS is supposed to be neutral, but clearly as an executive agency, they have to take a cue from the chief executive," Herzig said.
Joseph Thorndike, a tax historian who writes about presidents' taxes for the trade publication Tax Analysts, said a lack of disclosure would mean the public will simply have to have faith in its tax agency.
"We will have to trust the IRS to do its job," he said, "and most people don't trust the IRS. "
