*"Trump Talks Tax Cuts and Budget on Golf Course with Graham. President 

Donald Trump sought Sunday to gloss over the difficult work ahead for 

lawmakers laboring to finalize tax cut legislation he can sign by his self-imposed 

Christmas deadline.

Trump tweeted about the pending bill before he went to his golf club in West 

Palm Beach for a round with Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.

*"Apple, India wrangle over import tax on mobile parts: sources.

*"Haley: WASHINGTON — 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,

*"Blood Red Skies Over China Explained 300 Years Later. 

On Sept. 10, 1770, the skies above China, Korea and Japan turned an eerie red,

from East Asia have rediscovered the bizarre phenomenon, and have proposed a

record, the so-called Carrington Event of 1859. (Geomagnetic storms occur when 

solar eruptions hit Earth's magnetosphere, the shell of electrically charged 

particles trapped by Earth's magnetic field.)

Democrats say the time has come. The case for impeaching President Donald 

Trump is growing stronger. “It's time for the American public to ponder the 

gravity and consequences of the scandal engulfing the White House,” writes CNN 

commentator Errol Louis. “We know Trump has been trying in every way possible 

to deny, delay or discredit efforts by the Justice Department to ferret out the 

connections between the administration and a hostile foreign power."*""
