  • "President Donald Trump's decision to double down on his argument that 'both sides' were to blame for the violent clashes at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, was driven in part by his own anger — and his disdain for being told what to do."
  • New poll: 51 percent of Americans "disapprove of the job Donald Trump is doing as president."
  • "In an interview he said he believed was private, Stephen K. Bannon described the alt-right as a 'collection of clowns' and lashed out at rivals in the Trump administration."
  • In the past three days in the Philippines, police have killed 58 suspected drug users or dealers.
