Theresa May how to do it, but she didn’t listen to me,” Trump told the tabloid. “The deal she is striking is a much different deal than the one people voted on.”
Trump apologized in private to May, one of the rare times he‘s admitted wrong. And tho
ugh he’s expressed a desire to remain diplomatically impartial — “I think we will stay right in our lane,” he sa
id last week when questioned about Brexit — he has nevertheless bemoaned May’s handling of the issue over and over.
”I’m surprised at how badly it’s all gone from the standpoint of a negotiation,” he said in the Oval Office last week, mome
nts after suggesting he wouldn’t offer an opinion on the issue. “I gave the prime minister my ideas on how to n
egotiate it. And I think you would’ve been successful. She didn’t listen to that, and that’s fine.”
A few weeks before, Trump spoke briefly with one of the UK’s most visible pro-Brexit campaig
ners, Nigel Farage, on the sidelines of a conservative conference outside Washington. And he’s ma
intained close ties to the hardline conservatives who have bemoaned May’s handling of the matter.
Trump wasn’t alone in his criticism. Two of his top confidants — son Donald Trump Jr. and national security adviser John
Bolton — both offered critical views this week of May and her plan to try and delay Britain’s exit from Europe.
Former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic’s sentence for genocide has been increas
ed by appeal judges at a UN court in the Hague, Netherlands, from 40 years to life imprisonment.
In 2016 the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia sentenced Kar
adzic to 40 years in prison for genocide over the 1995 Srebrenica massacre — in which more than 7,000 Bos
nian Muslim men and boys were executed by Bosnian Serb forces under his command — as well as other crimes such as persecu
tion, extermination, murder, deportation, inhumane acts, terror, unlawful attacks on civilians, and hostage-taking.
On Wednesday Judge Vagn Joensen said the original 40-year sentence did not reflect the “gravity” of Kar
adzic’s crimes, and “his responsibility for the largest and gravest set of crimes ever attributed to a single person at the ICTY.”
wake of the Christchurch tragedy, laying flowers and messages of support on the side of Hagley Park, close to the Al Noor mosque.
A makeshift memorial grew in the center of the main street, below traffic lights that flashed orange to indicate roads leading to the mosque were closed.
No one was allowed to approach the building, not even local home owner Sue Harrison, whose c
ar was still parked in the driveway of her property behind the Deans Avenue mosque.
Christchurch resident Sue Harrison heard the gunshots from her house, near to the Al
Noor mosque, and called the police. Her son Zin (right) called her to check she was alright.
She remembers listening to the soothing chant of afternoo
n prayers when it was broken by gunshots. Harrison called the police and hid inside her
house as the gunman worked his way through the mosque, shooting as many people as he could.
”The time the shots were happening, it was terrifying, absolutely terrifying,” Har
rison said. “There was almost an immediate feeling that they’re being targeted.”
Williams using satire, caricature, exaggeration and humor, and the
cartoon intended to depict her behavior as childish by showing her spitting a
pacifier out while she jumps up and down.”
The cartoon showed Williams with large, exaggerated lips and nose reminiscent of racist depictions of black people in the US during the Jim Crow era.
Williams’ opponent, Japan’s Naomi Osaka, is depicted as a skinny blonde woman, to whom the umpire is saying: “Can’t you just let her win?”
The Japanese-American Osaka is of mixed heritage, and has Japanese and Haitian roots.
”Specifically, concern was expressed that the cartoon depicted Ms Willia
ms with large lips, a broad flat nose, a wild afro-styled ponytail hairstyle different to th
at worn by Ms. Williams during the match, and positioned in an ape-like pose,” said a statement from the press council.
”It was also noted that the cartoon should be considered in the context of the histo
ry of caricatures based on race and historical racist depictions of African-Americans.”
’Repugnant’When it was first published, the US-based National Association of Black Journalists said the cartoon was “repugnant on many levels.”
