US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson ‘refuses to hold Ramadan event’ in break with tradition

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson ‘refuses to hold Ramadan event’ in break with traditionDonald Trump’s Secretary of State has refused to host an event to mark Islam’s holy month of Ramadan, seemingly breaking with a long bipartisan tradition. Since 1999, Republican and Democratic secretaries of state have nearly always hosted either the reception or an iftar dinner to break the day’s fast during Ramadan. Mr Tillerson turned down a request from the State Department’s Office of Religion and Global Affairs to host the Eid reception, two unnamed US officials said.

Donald Trump's boorishness on the world stage has a lot to do with his failing agenda at home

Donald Trump's boorishness on the world stage has a lot to do with his failing agenda at homeThe more things go kaflooey for Donald Trump at home, the trickier and less malleable he becomes for the rest of the world. This equation was surely apparent to anyone in his path in Brussels and Taormina last week – including the Prime Minister of Montenegro, who was physically repositioned by Trump at his most oafish as he barged to the front for a “family photo” at Nato. Had anyone been hoping for a less testy Trump they were surely disappointed.

Portland attack: Man slits throats of would-be heroes who stepped in to stop Islamophobic abuse on MAX train

Portland attack: Man slits throats of would-be heroes who stepped in to stop Islamophobic abuse on MAX trainWitnesses who saw a triple stabbing on a train in Oregon say it may have been racially motivated, after a man who launched into a racist rant against two Muslim women then attacked passengers when they tried to intervene. The attacker slashed the throats of three people as the Metro Area Express (MAX) train was pulling into a station in the north east corner of Portland – leaving two dead and one injured. Before the stabbing, the assailant on the train was ranting on many topics, using “hate speech or biased language,” and then turned his focus on the women, Police Sergeant Pete Simpson said.
