SAN FRANCISCO, (Diya TV) — Democratic Presidential Candidate Senator Kamala Harris apologized for laughing and saying ‘well said’ at a campaign event where a South Asian audience member called President Trump “mentally retarded.” Harris says she did not hear or process the man’s comment and would’ve stopped and corrected him.
National Security Advisor John Bolton has resigned, becoming the third person in that role to leave during President Trump’s first term. Reports indicate Bolton and Trump have clashed on many issues in recent months, including Trump’s proposed meeting with the Taliban at Camp David just days before the 18th anniversary of 9/11. That meeting did not take place.
Indian Ambassador to the United States Harsh Shringla met with former Trump White House advisor Steve Bannon, who is now co-chair of the Republican Hindu Coalition founded by Shalli Kumar. Shringla tweeted about the meeting, but later deleted it after receiving criticism. In response to the backlash, Shringla said “don’t look into it as a conspiracy. We meet everyone from Bernie Sanders to Steve Bannon.”
