I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support

  of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump — I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough — until

they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad,” Trump told the conservative website.

  Trump’s incessant appeals for his base are undeniably effective.

  One Republican, Sen. Thom Tillis, of North Carolina, made an 11th

hour switch of his vote on the declaration of national emergency, falling into line behind the President.

  A top GOP official in North Carolina told CNN’s Jim Acosta that

Tillis was under fierce pressure ahead of a potential primary challenge next year.

  The official said, Tillis is “getting hit hard in the state.”

It wasn’t quite a George Clooney or Brad Pitt heist, but police say a brazen robbery attempt ended with gunfire and the suspect hospitalized in Las Vegas.

About 9:45 p.m. local time Friday, an armed man entered a packed Bell

agio Hotel and Casino and demanded money from a caged poker area, Las Vegas Met

ropolitan Police Capt. Nichole Splinter said.
He then fled and tried to steal a vehicle that ha

d just pulled into the valet lot, but he was immediately confronted by four police officers, Splinter said.

Nebraska has experienced historic flooding and extreme weat

  Nebraska rescue teams have been pulling trapped residents out of flood waters since Thursday.

  James Wilke, a Columbus farmer, got a call to assist a stranger, and never came home. Acco

rding to CNN affiliate KMTV, a close family friend posted on social media about his last moments.

  ”It is no surprise to anyone that knew James that when he got the phone call to assist eme

rgency responders … his answers would be yes,” Jodi L. Hefti wrote on Facebook.

  ”With the guidance of emergency responders, James drove his tractor over the Shell Cree

k bridge on the Monestary Road and the bridge gave out. James and the tractor went down into the flood water below.”

  CNN affiliates KOLN and KGIN reported the Nebraska Emergency Management Agenc

y confirmed a flood-related fatality in Platte County. The mayor of Columbus also told the affiliate sta

tions that person was a farmer on a tractor out to rescue someone from the flood waters.

Ahmad Khan said he watched as a man was shot dead in his

  A total of 49 people were killed in the mosque attacks on Friday. The massacre has stunned residents, not just because it happen

ed there but also because it was planned to show the world that even the most peaceful places are not immune to terror.

  Australian citizen Brenton Tarrant, 28, has been charged with one count of murder. Two other peo

ple remain in police custody. New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described it as “one of New Zealand’s darkest days.”

  Khan wasn’t the only member of his family touched by the shootings. A few blocks away

, at the Al Noor mosque, Khan’s uncle is believed to be one of 41 people gunned down there while praying.

  On Saturday, families waited patiently as officials worked to identify bodies. Yet while confirmation will bring some closure, questio

ns will linger as to how such a horrifying event can happen in a country many consider safe.

  ”We felt it was such a safe city, such a safe country,” a 30-year-

old construction project manager, who did not want to be named, told CNN. “The hatred has spread everywhere.”

Harrison’s 19-year-old son, Zin South, heard reports that a gun

  at the mosque. He remembered his mother was at their property waiting to meet a contractor. He texted her. She was safe.

  Then he saw the video broadcast live from a camera fixed to the gunman’s helmet. It

showed the gunman using the family’s driveway as a base to store his loaded weapons.

  ”I couldn’t believe it, that the guy had literally parked in our driveway and walked into the mosque, walked back to our driveway and back into the mosque,” South said.

  When police arrived they helped Harrison get out of the house and over the back fence. “She wa

sn’t allowed to leave (by the front) because there were literally bodies lying in the driveway,” her son said.

  The family says there’s no way that house can be their home now.

  Amid the flowers at the roadblock on Saturday was a homemade sign printed on a piece of A4 paper, titled “#No to hate and terror.”

  ”If New Zealand is like a vessel of milk filled to the very brim, then consider immigrants

as a pinch of sugar. We’ll not bring the vessel to overflowing but make the milk sweeter,” the sign said.

  The author, Deepak Sharma, was standing nearby holding an identical copy. He moved from India to New Zeal

and 10 years ago, and with tears in his eyes told CNN, “This is not the country we chose to immigrate to.”

minutes that explain the Trump presidency, a bad defeat

  For President Donald Trump, a bad defeat is simply a spark for a future fight.

  The President reacted with characteristic defiance to Congress’ repudiation of the national emergency declared in the cause of funding his border wall.

  ”VETO!” he tweeted, promising to crush the insubordination of lawmakers who had tri

ed, where many others had failed, to rein in his quest for power and contempt for constitutional norms.

  Trump’s crisis management reveals defining attributes of this most unique of political care

ers: The irrepressible energy of a force of nature personality, a refusal to accept a loss and an instinctive reflex to seek a new opening.

  But it also showcases less positive traits, including his willingne

ss to trample the truth for his own benefit, a selfish streak for which friendly foreign lead

ers sometimes pay the price and even a shockingly casual way of talking about political violence.

Showing off sometimes diabolical but compelling politic

  skills, Trump was audacious, provocative and spiteful. He made outrageous boasts about his own success and hin

ted at his acute sense of human nature and feral appreciation of weakness and discomfort in a political opponent.

  Trump also showed his indifference, or rude disregard for the political plights of allied le

aders, indulged his willingness to trade in falsehoods, and betrayed his obsessions with his predecessor President Barack Obama.

  At Thursday’s White House meeting, Trump was also asked by a reporter about the fre

shest entrant in the Democratic White House race — former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke. He was ready.

  ”Well, I think he’s got a lot of hand movement. I’ve never seen so much hand movement. I said is he crazy or is that just the way he acts.”

  ”Study it, I’m sure you’ll agree,” Trump told reporters.

  The jab at O’Rourke was not just a throwaway. It was a return to the forensic

targeting of political opponents that helped Trump dismantle the Republican primary field in 2016.

Trump also, as he often does, used his position to slyly sh

  out out one of his businesses, in this case, a golf course in Ireland.

  ”I have a very warm spot for Doonbeg, I will tell you that and it just a great place really.”

  While praising Ireland, Trump promptly switched to a characteristic boast about his own

success, his management of the economy and how he held “all of the records … every single record for the stock market.”

  Trump’s obsession with Obama — a defining characteristic — appeared like a nerv

ous tick twice in his photo-op, twinned with a willingness to spout untruths.

  First, he claimed that the former President had predicted in 2016 that British vote

rs would reject leaving the European Union in a referendum while he had predicted they would vote to exit the bloc.

  Obama did not bet on the outcome. But he did however warn Britons they would go “to the back of the queue” for a trade deal with the US if they left the EU.

Hu said the two new models are likely to conduct their

first mission in about five years if all goes well. Like other Kuaizhou types, they will be mainly tas

ked with meeting demands in commercial launch service from the burgeoning satellite industry in China.

Meanwhile, designers also hope the Kuaizhou 21 will have the opportu

nity to serve government space programs such as the space station program, he added.

Zhang Di, a vice-president at the academy, previously told China Daily that the Kuaizhou 21 will b

e powerful enough to transport supplies to the country’s future space station or to ferry robotic probes to planets far from Earth.

CASIC began to develop the Kuaizhou series in 2009 as a low-cost, quick-response

product for the commercial space market. The company has launched four: two Kuaizhou 1s and two Kuaizhou 1As.

young man in Central China designed, constructed and

decorated a unique cement pipe room in 45 days, and made short videos to record the whole process and put them online, attracting many followers.

The man surnamed Long, 28, used to serve in the army and now runs a home “agritainmen

t” inn in Shaoshan, Central China’s Hunan province, the Xiaoxiang Morning Herald reported Wednesday.

Long said he has been a fan of Japanese animation and manga since childhood — especially

Doraemon, in which a pile of cement pipes is a place for Nobita Nobi to play with his friends and a shelter from bullies.

Inspired by the scene, Long has always dreamed of actually living in a concrete tube.

In January, Long started his ambitious construction plan. He used planks to form the tube frame fast

ened by steel bars, and filled it with cement. After the tube was done, he set out on interior design and decoration.

There were 215 million single people in China at the

end of 2017, accounting for about 16 percent of the population, ac

cording to the National Bureau of Statistics. Marriage registrations have fallen every year

since 2014, while the divorce rate has risen for 16 consecutive years, according to the Ministry of Civil Affairs.

Dining, traveling and pursuing activities individually have also become increasingly popular with singles in China.

Tang Chuan, a researcher with Sinolink Securities, said that without family burdens, singles

seem to be less inclined to save money, and their willingness to spend offers great potential for boosting the economy.

Sinolink Securities conducted research on singles born from 1985 to 1995 and found that about 40 percent of those in first- an

d second-tier cities live from paycheck to paycheck, while in lower-tier cities, the proportion is as high as 76 percent.
