ADDIS ABABA — President Donald Trump's decision to pull U.S. troops out of Somalia in the waning days of his presidency triggered dismay on Saturday from some Somalis, who appealed to the incoming U.S. president to reverse the decision. The Somali government could not immediately be reached for comment early on Saturday to Friday's decision to withdraw almost all the roughly 700 U.S. troops by Jan. 15. Both U.S. and Somali forces opposed the withdrawal, he said. Ethiopia, which is a major troop contributor to the peacekeeping forces and has thousands more troops in Somalia bilaterally, is distracted by an internal conflict that broke out last month. Perhaps a withdrawal will force Somalia to confront them, said Sheikh.

The Trump administration on Friday declined to give TikTok more time to comply with an order requiring it to divest from its US assets. Last week, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States gave TikTok a one-week extension. But two sources told Reuters that talks between TikTok and the US government over the app's fate are expected to continue. Last week, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States granted ByteDance a one-week extension until Friday over the order to shed TikTok's US assets. The Justice Department and Treasury Department did not immediately respond to requests for comment, while the White House did not comment.

Saudi Arabia and Qatar are expected to reach an agreement within days that will help ease a standoff that has embroiled the Gulf region since 2017, three people briefed on the discussions told NBC News on Friday. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain cut off all diplomatic ties to Qatar three years ago and began a blockade against their former ally, accusing Doha of supporting terrorism. In exchange, the Qataris would drop pending international lawsuits against Saudi Arabia, according to one source. In August 2017, Doha restored full diplomatic relations with Tehran, deepening the feud with the other countries. Saudi Arabia did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Even if it had been missed then, the error would have been detected during the vote canvass, election officials said. A lawsuit making that claim was dismissed, and state officials said using the pens did not cause ballots to be rejected. President Trump also said thousands of uncounted ballots were discovered in three Georgia counties after the election, "and these ballots were mostly from Trump voters." In each case, state election officials said, county election workers failed to upload tallies from memory cards used to store the totals from vote counting machines. Among the strongest critics of the Trump campaign's claims were two federal judges, both appointed to the bench by President Trump.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department investigated whether a lawyer for Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of President Donald Trump, had been involved in a bribery scheme to win clemency for a man convicted of tax crimes, the New York Times said on Thursday. White House senior advisor Jared Kushner looks on at a U.S. President Donald Trump's campaign rally at Fayetteville Regional Airport in Fayetteville, North Carolina, U.S., November 2, 2020. As part of the plan, a San Francisco real estate developer, Sanford Diller, would make an unspecified political contribution, it added. U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell released an order that described what she called a “bribery-for-pardon” investigation. In October, Broidy pleaded guilty in a separate case to legally lobbying Trump to drop an investigation into a Malaysian embezzlement scandal.

The price of bItcoin has been a tear on recent weeks, setting its first record high since 2017 on Monday. The cryptocurrency has continued to trade in a volatile manner, but has seen increased adoption by major financial companies and high profile investors. Brooks said the new regulations would help accelerate adoption of crypto by major financial players.

U.S. Supreme Court takes up Trump bid to revive Medicaid work requirements

Under the Republican Trump, the department gave the go-ahead for states to carry out test projects requiring able-bodied people on Medicaid to work or do volunteer work. The approval of the waivers prompted lawsuits by residents enrolled in various states' Medicaid programs, including ones in Arkansas and New Hampshire. U.S. District Judge James Boasberg in 2019 struck down the agency's approval of the Arkansas program, called Arkansas Works. Boasberg later used the same reasoning in rejecting New Hampshire's work requirements. Circuit ruled that Medicaid has "one primary purpose, which is providing healthcare coverage without any restriction geared to healthy outcomes, financial independence or transition to commercial coverage."

Rudy Giuliani, personal lawyer of US President Donald Trump, looks on during an appearance before the Michigan House Oversight Committee in Lansing, Michigan on December 2, 2020. - The president's attorneys, led by Rudy Giuliani, have made numerous allegations of election fraud. President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani blasted Republican state lawmakers in Pennsylvania on Friday, saying they "let down America," as the Trump campaign effort to reverse Joe Biden's national presidential election win seemed headed for failure. The Democratic former vice president Biden won the Keystone State's popular vote, which entitles him to all 20 Electoral College votes from the state. And legal experts give Trump little hope of eking out an electoral victory through court action.

Former Trump 2016 campaign officials Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie are among the 11 new members. WASHINGTON — Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller dismissed nine Defense Business Board members and replaced them with 11 new appointments on Friday, the latest shakeup in the Pentagon aimed at installing Trump loyalists. "However, board members receive reimbursement of travel and per diem during dates of travel for board business," the official added. Last month, the Pentagon elevated three Trump loyalists to powerful positions a day after the sudden termination of Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. Replacing Jen Stewart, the chief of staff to the Defense secretary, is Kash Patel, a member of the National Security Council.

Trump orders most American troops to leave Somalia

The Pentagon said Friday it is pulling most U.S. troops out of Somalia on President Donald Trump's orders, continuing a post-election push by Trump to shrink U.S. involvement in counterterrorism missions abroad. Without providing details, the Pentagon said in a short statement that "a majority" of U.S. troops and assets in Somalia will be withdrawn in early 2021. Trump recently ordered troop drawdowns in Afghanistan and Iraq, and he was expected to withdraw some or all troops from Somalia. The Pentagon said the drawdown in Somalia does not mark the end of U.S. counterterrorism efforts there. "However, the remaining forces will be repositioned from Somalia into neighbouring countries in order to allow cross-border operations by both U.S. and partner forces to maintain pressure against violent extremist organizations operating in Somalia."

A Senate committee advanced legislation on Thursday that would jumpstart the establishment of the long-awaited National Museum of the American Latino. The last of its museums to open was The National Museum of African American History and Culture, established by Congress in 2003 and open to the public in 2016. Longoria noted she is a ninth generation Texan, and stressed the importance of having a record of Latinos' contributions throughout the nation's history. Muñoz helped spearhead the initial effort to create the institution as chairman of the Commission to study the Creation of the National Museum of the American Latino.

The document notes that Ivanka Trump, the president's oldest daughter and a senior White House adviser, was interviewed Tuesday by attorneys from the Washington, D.C., attorney general’s office.

As part of the suit, they have subpoenaed records from Ivanka Trump, first lady Melania Trump, Thomas Barrack Jr., a close friend of the president who chaired the inaugural committee, and others.

President Donald Trump's anger toward Attorney General William Barr has reached a boiling point in recent days, and multiple advisors are trying to convince the president not to fire Barr, The Washington Post reported late Wednesday. Trump's fury stems mainly from Barr's failure to deliver on a politically charged investigation into the origins of the FBI's Russia probe. ABC News reported that Trump and Barr had an "intense" meeting at the White House after the AP interview was published. But Trump has continued complaining about Barr in the day since the interview dropped, The Post reported. Barr's potential termination would add to a growing list of revenge firings Trump has carried out since losing the election.

"Let me ask you something: Do you think the news division of Fox News isn't interested in every one of these [voter fraud allegations]?" Instances of voter fraud with mail-in ballots are quite rare, with individual errors presenting a much bigger problem for local elections officials.

Hong Kong (CNN Business) The US government is just one step away from enacting a law that could kick several Chinese firms off Wall Street, further escalating tensions between Washington and Beijing. The legislation won unanimous backing in the Senate earlier this year, meaning it only needs President Donald Trump's signature to become law. It requires companies that are traded overseas to hold their audit papers in mainland China, where they cannot be examined by foreign agencies. The bipartisan cosponsors of the legislation said earlier this year that their goal was to " kick deceitful Chinese companies off US exchanges ." US scrutiny intensified following a scandal involving Luckin Coffee, the Chinese coffee firm that disclosed massive accounting irregularities this spring.

Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have given up on a secret COVID-19 stimulus proposal they sent directly to Mitch McConnell. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer abandoned a secretive COVID-19 stimulus proposal when they publicly backed a $908 billion bipartisan bill. The pair had quietly taken a proposal directly to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Monday night, The Washington Post reported. The bipartisan bill is far short of the $2.2 trillion package approved by the Democratic Party, but preserves help for small business, unemployment support, and coronavirus vaccine distribution costs. As well as thrashing out a stimulus bill, lawmakers also have to deal with a looming government shutdown, which will kick in on December 11 unless they act to avert it.
