USA — Nagbabala si US President Barack Obama sa Wall Street na dapat maalarma ito sa kinakaharap na political crisis na nararanasan ngayon ng bansa.

Ito’y matapos hindi muling nakabuo ng compromise ang Pangulo sa pakikipag-usap nito sa Congressional leaders kagabi na naglalayong wakasan na ang government shutdown.

Naturuan pa rin ang Democrats at Republicans sa may sala kung bakit nararanasan ngayon ng Amerika ang shut down

Sa October 17 ay posibleng maubusan na ng pondo pambayad ng mga bills ang US Government maliban na lang kung muling umutang ang bansa na lalo pang nagpapataas ng debt ceiling ng Amerika. (UNTV News)

Democrats say summary of Trump’s call with Zelenskiy raises more questions than answers

Robie de Guzman   •   September 26, 2019

Democratic members of the U.S. Congress were not satisfied by the White House summary of a phone call between U.S. President Donald Trump and Ukranian President Volodmyr Zelenskiy, suggesting the document raises more questions than answers about Trump’s efforts to exert pressure of Zelenskiy to open an investigation on Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

“The release of the transcript of one of President Trump’s calls with President Zelenskiy, which just came out, will not assuage our concerns or the public’s concerns. Based on early reports, it may heighten them,” Senator Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leader, said.

Hakeem Jeffries, the Democratic leader in the House of Representatives, said the role of Trump’s attorney, Rudolf Giuliani, as a back-channel interlocutor to the Ukrainian government is particularly disturbing to Democrats.

“That is lawless. That undermines our national security. That is an abuse of power. That is unpatriotic. That undermines the electoral process and our democracy and the American people will not stand for it,” Jeffries said. (Reuters)

Hong Kong leader formally withdraws controversial extradition bill

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam on Wednesday (September 4) announced the formal withdrawal of a controversial extradition bill that has plunged the Chinese-ruled city into its worst political crisis in decades.

The bill, which would have allowed extraditions to mainland China where courts are controlled by the Communist Party, triggered months of unrest and posed the gravest challenge to Chinese leader Xi Jinping since he came to power in 2012.

The protests against the bill in the former British colony began in March but snowballed in June and have since evolved into a push for greater democracy. (REUTERS)

Hundreds of car drivers joined an anti-government protest on Wednesday evening in the Armenian capital Yerevan.

Some cars were driving along central city streets with protest banners, others stopped and blocked roads.

Armenia’s political party said later on Wednesday it was formally leaving the governing coalition amid a political crisis and favored early elections.

It announced its decision after police took up positions in the center of the Armenian capital as tens of thousands of people protested against the ruling elite and the acting prime minister suggested new parliamentary elections to defuse the political crisis. — Reuters
