Fox News accused of running 'misleading' graphic on Donald Trump's unemployment record Fox News has attracted controversy after it posted a graphic on Twitter about unemployment rates which users have pointed out is "misleading".

The graphic appears to present the Republicans - Mr Trump and Mr Bush - favourably, showing the jobless rate after the first three months of their presidencies stood at 4.5 per cent and 4.4 per cent respectively.

A rise in critical skills for sharing news online

A rise in critical skills for sharing news online A new survey by Harvard University finds more than two-thirds of young Americans disapprove of President Trump’s use of Twitter. The implication is that Millennials prefer news from the White House to be filtered through other sources, not a president’s social media platform. Most Americans rely on social media to check daily headlines.

US foreign aid cuts: what could impact be? When President Donald Trump’s budget director, Mick Mulvaney, presented the outlines of the new US administration’s first budget last month, he made no bones about its purpose. “This is a hard power budget.

John Kasich raises 'taking out' top North Korean leaders

John Kasich raises 'taking out' top North Korean leaders With that bold assertion, Gov. John Kasich (R) of Ohio raised a controversial argument for American action aimed at neutralizing the North Korean nuclear threat. “An ability to remove a number of the top people, and have a more benign leadership there that understands what’s at risk, I think is perhaps doable,” Governor Kasich told reporters Friday at a breakfast hosted by The Christian Science Monitor. Kasich – the final competitor against Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 – has not fully closed the door to running again in 2020, one more reason that his views on policy command an audience.

Trump says China could have hacked Democratic emails

Trump says China could have hacked Democratic emails President Donald Trump said China may have hacked the emails of Democratic officials to meddle with the 2016 presidential election, countering the view of U.S. intelligence officials who have said Moscow orchestrated the hacks. In an interview transcript published on Sunday, Trump gave no evidence backing his allegation, first made on the eve of the Nov. 8 presidential election, that China could have hacked the emails of his rivals. "If you don't catch a hacker, okay, in the act, it's very hard to say who did the hacking," the president said in an interview with CBS "Face the Nation." "(It) could have been China, could have been a lot of different groups." The hackers roiled the presidential campaign by making public embarrassing emails sent by Democratic operatives and aides to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

May expects tough talks; EU alarmed at Brexit 'illusions'

May expects tough talks; EU alarmed at Brexit 'illusions' By William James and Alastair Macdonald LONDON/BRUSSELS (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May expects divorce talks with the European Union to be tough, she said on Sunday after EU leaders agreed stiff terms and voiced alarm at "illusions" in London that may wreck a deal. "What this shows, and what some of the other comments we've seen coming from European leaders shows, is that there are going to be times when these negotiations are going to be tough," May told the BBC a day after her EU peers agreed on demands they want met to avoid chaos when Britain leaves the bloc in 2019. At Saturday's Brussels summit of the 27 other EU states, EU chief executive Jean-Claude Juncker accused unnamed pro-Brexit figures of underestimating the complexity of the task and German Chancellor Angela Merkel repeated her concern that London still harbored "illusions" about negotiating a quick free-trade pact.
