The Palestinian prime minister has said it will be disastrous for his people and the world at large if President Donald Trump wins re-election next month. Speaking remotely to European lawmakers, Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh said the last four years of the Trump administration have greatly harmed the Palestinians.

“If we are going to live another four years with President Trump,” he said, God help us and the whole world, Shtayyeh said on Monday. The comments were posted on his Facebook page. The Palestinians have traditionally refrained from taking an explicit public position in American presidential elections.

Shtayyeh’s comments reflected the sense of desperation on the Palestinian side after a series of US moves that have left them weakened and isolated. The Palestinians severed ties with Trump after he recognised contested Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in late 2017 and subsequently moved the American Embassy to the holy city.

Buoyed by massive fundraising success, Democratic Senate candidates are mounting a push in Republican states that few would have thought possible just a few months ago, placing continued GOP control of the chamber at risk. In South Carolina, Sen. Lindsey Graham’s challenger, Democrat Jaime Harrison, shattered fundraising records when he announced on Sunday a USD 57 million haul for the quarter that ended in September.

MJ Hegar in Texas reported raising over USD 13 million during the same period for her race against Republican Sen. John Cornyn. In deep-red Kentucky, Amy McGrath has posted strong fundraising numbers against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. In Mississippi, Mike Espy reported raising USD 4 million in his rematch against Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith.

The windfall speaks to the energy coursing through a restive Democratic base that hopes not only to oust President Donald Trump, but also to flip control of the Senate, where Republicans have a 53-47 majority. That will be key for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to enact his agenda, if he wins. But the flood of money flowing to high-profile Senate candidates is so large, it’s not at all clear the recipients will have time to spend it.

Popular Republican politician Nikki Haley has hit out at Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for being a “status quo” on China and wanting to revive the Iran nuclear deal while accusing his running mate and Senator Kamala Harris for advancing the leftist agenda. Indian-American Haley, 48, had so far refrained from publicly criticising 55-year old Harris, has now come out in open against the California Senator’s policies, which the former US Ambassador to the UN said was reflective of Harris’ leftist agenda.

“Harris pledged to repeal the 2017 tax cut and invest in the American people, revealing the left’s fundamental philosophy that government is better equipped to spend people’s money than the people themselves,” she said in a tweet.

Haley is one of the most popular Republican politicians in the US after Trump and is seen as party’s potential presidential candidate in 2024. The two-term Governor of South Carolina, Haley was the first Cabinet-ranking Indian-American in any presidential administration. Supporting Trump in his re-election, Haley also slammed Biden and Harris for their foreign policy views on issues like Iran and climate change issues.

“While Biden and Harris want to revive the Iran nuclear deal, pouring billions of dollars into a terrorist regime, the Trump administration withdrew from the disastrous Iran nuclear deal & eliminated one of the world’s most dangerous terrorist masterminds ‘a move that Biden opposed’ she said.

President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden are both looking to harness the credibility of America’s best-known infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, as they make their case to American voters.

Trump is quoting him out of context, the doctor says.

Biden, for his part, is eagerly promising to seek Fauci’s advice if elected. (Read more here)

 US President Donald Trump is no longer considered a coronavirus transmission risk to others as he has been fever-free for over 24 hours, his White House physician informed Saturday night.  “The assortment of advanced diagnostic tests obtained reveal there is no longer evidence of actively replicating virus,” Conley wrote. “In addition, sequential testing throughout his illness has demonstrated decreasing viral loads.”
