Trump says thinks Republicans have the votes to pass tax reform: Fox Business interview

Trump says thinks Republicans have the votes to pass tax reform: Fox Business interviewWASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he thinks Republicans have the votes needed to pass a big tax cut package. In an interview with Fox Business Network set to air on Sunday, Trump said he had been thinking about tying tax legislation to an infrastructure spending bill but that it was not clear a combined package would gain more votes. "I don’t want to take any chances cause I feel we have the votes right now the way it is," he said, according to a transcript provided by the cable news outlet.

Plague outbreak in Madagascar leaves 94 dead

Plague outbreak in Madagascar leaves 94 deadAn unusually large plague outbreak in Madagascar has taken 94 lives, the World Health Organisation said on Friday. The number of suspected cases has reached 1,153, Dr. Ibrahima Soce Fall, Africa emergencies chief for the U.N. health agency, told reporters in Geneva. More cases are expected, "but we think we can affect the curve very quickly thanks to the deployment of human resources and all types of intervention," he said. International agencies have sent more than one million doses of antibiotics and deployed medical teams. Plague is endemic in Madagascar, but this year’s outbreak is unusual because for the first time the disease has affected the Indian Ocean island’s two biggest cities, Antananarivo and Toamasina. More than 70 percent of the cases are pneumonic plague, a more virulent form that spreads through coughing, sneezing or spitting and is almost always fatal if untreated. Red Cross volunteers talk to villagers about the plague outbreak, 30 miles west of Antananarivo, Madagascar, Monday, Oct. 16, 2017 Credit: AP In some cases, it can kill within 24 hours. Like the bubonic form that often is found in Madagascar’s remote highlands, it can be treated with common antibiotics if caught in time. WHO has said the risk of global spread of the outbreak is low and it advises against travel or trade restrictions. It seeks $5.5 million to support the plague response. The Red Cross is sending its first-ever plague treatment center.
