Trump Is Planning To Roll Back Obama’s Cuba Policy

Ramon Espinosa / AP MEXICO CITY, Mexico — Ignoring widespread calls from members of his own party, business leaders and human rights groups, President Donald Trump will announce a rollback of some of the Cuba-friendly policies undertaken by his predecessor, White House officials said Thursday. US citizens will no longer be able to engage in individual leisure travel to Cuba, the officials said. The US government will also ensure that no profits from American businesses benefit Cuba's military. "The new policy going forward does not target the Cuban people but it does target the repressive members of the Cuban military government," a senior administration official told reporters during a briefing ahead of the announcement. Trump is scheduled to appear in Miami on Friday to officially announce the shift. The rapprochement with Cuba saw the US reestablish ties with the communist government following more than 50 years of enmity, using executive orders to reopen the US embassy in Ha..

Woman Who Said The Germanwings Pilot Crashed The Plane On Purpose Actually Made Up...

After Germanwings flight 4U9525 crashed in the French Alps on March 24, 2015, killing all 150 people on board, investigators found that co-pilot Andreas Lubitz had intentionally downed the plane. Marcel Kusch / AFP / Getty Images Days after the crash, the German newspaper BILD published an interview with a woman who claimed that she was Lubitz's lover. Her story lined up perfectly with the emerging narrative of an unstable and destructive pilot. Ina Fassbender / AFP / Getty Images "Maria W." told BILD she was a flight attendant who traveled through Europe with Lubitz. She said he had told her that one day he planned to "do something that will change the whole system, and only then will everyone know and remember my name." Sean Gallup / Getty Images But BuzzFeed News has found that Maria had fabricated her account — and she admitted as much to a TV channel when she was shopping around the story.

Trump’s Most Diehard Media Defenders Turn On Him After Strikes On Syria

youtube.com / Via youtube.com In the minutes after the Pentagon confirmed President Donald Trump ordered missile strikes on Syria, several media outlets and personalities instrumental to his rise to power announced they were turning against him. Trump campaigned against intervening in foreign conflicts, warning Hillary Clinton would drag the US into the fight in Syria. On Thursday night, some of Trump's most diehard supporters felt deeply betrayed that he ordered airstrikes less than three months into his presidency. Alt-right twitter personality Baked Alaska summed up the sentiment this way: "New Right" blogger Mike Cernovich — whose work was elevated earlier this week by Trump allies after he first reported Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice "unmasked" Trump campaign officials caught in surveillance — spent much of the day livestreaming a "filibuster" against military action in Syria before threatening a revolt after the strikes had been carried out. Cernovich launche..

Here’s What Trump And China’s President Will Be Meeting About In Florida

Fabrice Coffrini / AFP / Getty Images BEIJING — There’s a lot on the line when President Donald Trump meets his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, for the first time on Thursday. After months of the equivalent of policy whiplash from the US, China watchers and the country’s foreign policy elite are closely watching the pending summit for signals on the future of the world’s most important bilateral relationship. Trump’s nascent China policy has been marked by swings in rhetoric that have left onlookers guessing about the administration’s plans. The two leaders are set to meet on Thursday at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida for informal talks expected to set the tone for relations between the world’s two biggest economic powers. “This first meeting is a test of whether the Trump administration can send a calibrated message rather than a chaotic one on US–China relations,” said Graham Webster, a senior fellow in US-China relations at Yale Law School. “The administration still has no c..

Irish Women Are Worried Brexit Will Make It Harder To Travel To The UK...

Brian Lawless / PA Archive/PA Images A leading campaigner for abortion rights in Ireland has expressed concern that post-Brexit border controls could make it harder and more expensive for Irish women to travel to Great Britain for an abortion. Every year around 3,600 women travel from Ireland to the UK for abortions as a result of the eighth amendment of the Irish constitution, a law that prohibits the procedure in all circumstances unless the mother's life is seen to be at immediate risk. The same law applies in Northern Ireland. "We can’t just see Britain post-Brexit as an extension of a health service for people from this country. It’s not going to function like that," Ailbhe Smyth, convenor of the Coalition to Repeal the Eighth Amendment, told BuzzFeed News. "We have relied on Britain to 'solve' the reality of abortion for Irish women," she continued. "We take that for granted, and I am raising a question mark and saying, should we be taking this for granted? No, we..

This Is What The World Looks Like Without Water

Félix Sequeiros sits in his cousin's boat in the now-dry Lake Poopó in Bolivia. Misha Vallejo Misha Vallejo, a documentary photographer based in Ecuador, explored the area around Lake Poopó in Bolivia as the water started disappearing in 2016. The lake, which is the second largest in Bolivia and located in the Altiplano Mountains, had shrunk in the past but never to the same extent. The Bolivian government blamed El Niño and climate change, while others said that water mismanagement may have also played a role. As a part of our series on climate change in collaboration with PHmuseum, BuzzFeed News spoke with Vallejo about the profound changes the loss of the lake brought upon the local community, which had relied on it for generations. Clothes settled at the bottom of the lake after it dried out. Misha Vallejo Is there any hope for Lake Poopó to return or is it gone for good? Misha Vallejo: Official reports stated that the lake was recovering and by January 2017, it had 7..
