JERUSALEM — President Trump laid a wreath Tuesday at Israel's Holocaust memorial, calling the Nazi extermination of 6 million Jews “history’s darkest hour.” Trump's half-hour visit at Yad Vashem was far shorter than usual for world leaders who come to the sacred site, but the president expressed sympathy for Holocaust victims and strong support for Israel.

Melania Trump eschews headscarf in Saudi Arabia — and it's not an insult Melania Trump eschews headscarf in Saudi Arabia — and it's not an insult

WASHINGTON – Despite President Trump's repeated assertions that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's scathing memo provided the foundation for last week's abrupt dismissal of FBI Director James Comey, the deputy attorney general told Congress Friday that the document was not actually offered to justify the firing – nor was it meant to be made public.

Voting advocates call Supreme Court's decision not to hear North Carolina case a win Voting advocates call Supreme Court's decision not to hear North Carolina case a win
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court sidestepped the politically divisive issue of voting rights Monday, refusing to reconsider a lower court's ruling that a North Carolina photo-ID law discriminated against black voters "with almost surgical precision."

White House spokesman Sean Spicer repeatedly refused to confirm or deny whether President Trump tapes his phone calls or conversations with others – including inside the Oval Office.
