Trump assures ‘Good progress’ being made on deal between Armenia & Azerbaijan

US President Donald Trump has better plans to reduce the ongoing tensions between Armenia and Azerbaijan in the Nagorno-Karabakh region.

Washington –

“We are talking about it, we are working with Armenia,” Donald Trump said. “We have a very good relationship with Armenia. They are very good people, they are so dedicated. They are incredible people and we’ll see what happens… I think really good progress is being made with respect to that.”

Donald Trump pointed out that many Armenians live in the United States, whom he characterized as “great people,” and said Washington will help them.

Earlier on Friday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held separate talks with the foreign ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan in Washington to discuss ways to stop the hostilities in the Nagorno-Karabakh region. Neither minister has confirmed the possibility of a face-to-face meeting during their visits to Washington.

Pompeo said earlier this week that he was anxious to hear from the two diplomats how they might get closer to resolving the conflict. Armed hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh have been ongoing since September 27. The parties have since agreed to two humanitarian ceasefires, however, both were broken mere hours after entering into force.

The warring sides have continued to accuse each other of provocations and attacks on civilian settlements. The tensions originally began when the region broke off from the Azerbaijani Soviet Socialist Republic in 1988.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that the death toll after more than three weeks of violence has reached nearly 5,000.

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Dec 4, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Dec 4, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...

Stocks rise on Wall Street as rally stretches to fourth day

Dec 4, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S. stocks rallied Monday, rising with European and several Asian markets following surprisingly strong reports on China's economy. Growth in factory activity and retail sales in the world's second-largest economy both beat analysts’ expectations for last month. That layered on top of optimism from last week’s long-awaited “Phase 1” trade deal between China and the United States, which removed some of the uncertainty that’s hung over businesses and investors. The interim trade deal is one of a “trifecta of positive catalysts” that swept through the market last week and could help support it through the end of...

Wisconsin Senate to vote on firing agriculture secretary

Dec 4, 2020

MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin's Republican-controlled Senate prepared Tuesday to fire the state agriculture secretary appointed by Democratic Gov. Tony Evers, the latest in a series of skirmishes between the governor and the GOP that comes as Wisconsin is losing dairy farmers at a record pace. Republicans and Evers have been fighting since before Evers even took office. Republicans convened a lame-duck session to pass laws weakening Evers' power in December. This summer, Evers used his expansive veto to reshape the GOP-passed state budget, resulting in attempts in court and through a constitutional amendment to weaken his veto authority. And on...
