After noticing the children were missing, Randolph told officers she found them unresponsive in a locked car and broke a window to rescue them.


U.S. lawmakers urge Trump to press India's Modi on trade, investment

U.S. lawmakers urge Trump to press India's Modi on trade, investmentBy David Brunnstrom WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Leading U.S. congressmen have called on President Donald Trump to press Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to remove barriers to U.S. trade and investment when they meet for the first time on Monday. The lawmakers, from the Republican and Democratic parties, said in a letter to Trump that high-level engagement with India had failed to eliminate major trade and investment barriers and had not deterred India from imposing new ones. “Many sectors of the Indian economy remain highly and unjustifiably protected, and India continues to be a difficult place for American companies to do business,” they wrote, noting that a 2017 World Bank report ranked India 130th out of 190 countries for ease of doing business.

Donald Trump launches fresh attack on Barack Obama as he asks 'why no action' on Russian election meddlingDonald Trump has launched a fresh attack on former President Barack Obama accusing the former president of failing to act on Russian “meddling” during the election last year. Lashing out at Mr Obama on Twitter, the President wrote: “Since the Obama Administration was told way before the 2016 Election that the Russians were meddling, why no action? The tweet came a day after the Washington Post detailed the Obama administration’s cautious approach to punishing the Russian government for its hacking campaign – apparently signed off by Russian President Vladimir Putin – intended to politically damage Hillary Clinton and swing the election in Mr Trump’s favour.
