In the days after Christmas, there are a few news stories catching headlines. The main one is the budget cut from the United States to the United Nations (UN). $285 million has been cut from the 2018-2019 spending budget, sending a signal that the United States will not be subject to the wishes of the UN that are against the needs of our country, while at the same time being the primary financial contributor. $600 million of the 8 billion dollar peacekeeping budget was also cut earlier in the year due to pressure from Donald Trump and his current administration.
Singer and Trump supporter Joy Villa has filed a sexual assault charge against President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, the Associated Press reported. Villa said she filed the complaint against Lewandowski for hitting her twice on the buttocks at a gathering at Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. the day after Thanksgiving. She is meeting with detectives next week about the complaint.
Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee said she was an “easy target” and alleged racism may be behind accusations she received preferential treatment on a United Airlines flight last week. The Texas congresswoman sent a series of Tweets on Tuesday reposting her statement about the Dec. 18 incident, in which she said she and and a flight attendant, both African Americans, were “seemingly an easy target.” She originally released the statement Friday on Facebook.
