Nikki Haley Says Trump's Sexual Misconduct Accusers Should Be Heard

The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations said Sunday that women who accuse someone of sexual misconduct deserve to be heard, even if it involves President Donald Trump.

"I know that he was elected, but women should always feel comfortable coming forward. And we should all be willing to listen to them," Nikki Haley said on CBS' Face the Nation.

Trump, a Republican, won the White House last year despite the election season release of a 2005 Access Hollywood tape on which he described grabbing women's private parts, followed by accusations by several women of aggressive sexual misconduct. Press secretary...

NBC, CBS, ABC Rework Sunday Schedules as Hurricane Irma Swirls

NBC, CBS, ABC Rework Sunday Schedules as Hurricane Irma Swirls
On this Sunday, at least, it’s not “Meet the Press.”

NBC News said it would make the rare move of preempting its long-running Sunday public-affairs program to accommodate “wall to wall’ coverage of Hurricane Irma’s path through Florida and the impact of its onslaught on the continental United States. CBS News said it would cut “Face the Nation” in half, while ABC News announced that it would weave its “This Week” into its overall coverage during the day and would air a special edition of “20/20” in the early evening.

The storm, bringing with it winds of 120 miles per hour or more, had begun to reach the Florida Keys Saturday night, and was expected to force one of the biggest mass evacuations in recent history. Like Hurricane Harvey, which lashed Houston and parts of Texas just days ago, its effects are predicted to be massive and far-reaching, and its impact on the region’s economy could

TV News Piles on Irma as Hurricane Approaches Continental U.S.

The nation’s TV-news outlets plan to ramp up their coverage of the arrival of Hurricane Irma in the southeastern United States, a signal of the storm’s growing intensity and its ability to wreak havoc on millions as the nation is in the midst of recovering from the effects of Hurricane Harvey in Texas.

The Category 5 hurricane has been steadily swirling over islands in the Caribbean and moving toward Puerto Rico and Florida. President Trump has already declared a state of emergency in Florida, Puerto Rico and the United States Virgin Islands. At present, Irma is expected to reach Florida on Sunday, with severe flooding anticipated.

NBC News said it planned to air a special edition of its “Today” morning program on Sunday, assigning weekday hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie to anchor the proceedings. Both NBC News and MSNBC plan to air rolling coverage of the storm. NBC News expects to air special reports throughout

Trump Is Finally Meeting with Potential ‘New Best Friend’ Vladimir Putin: Their Relationship History in 10 Quotes

Trump Is Finally Meeting with Potential ‘New Best Friend’ Vladimir Putin: Their Relationship History in 10 Quotes
President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin will have their first official meeting on Friday afternoon at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.

It’s unclear if the two have ever met in person, mainly due to Trump’s contradictory statements over the years about the nature of his relationship with Putin.

The White House said that the leaders’ face-to-face on Friday “will be a normal bilateral meeting,” as opposed to a “pull-aside” like the one former President Obama had with Putin at last year’s conference.

Tensions between the two countries are high as the U.S. maintains

Sekulow made the Sunday morning Beltway show rounds today to explain the president’s revelatory – or maybe not – June…
