Trump attacks conservative lawmakers over health bill

President Donald Trump is attacking conservative lawmakers after the failure of the Republican bill to replace Obamacare.

On Twitter Sunday, Trump says: “Democrats are smiling in D.C. that the Freedom Caucus, with the help of Club For Growth and Heritage, have saved Planned Parenthood & Ocare!”

The Freedom Caucus is a hard-right group of House members who were largely responsible for blocking the bill to undo President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act. The bill was pulled from the House floor Friday in a humiliating political defeat for the president.

Trump initially focused his blame on Democrats for the failure and predicted a dire future for the current law.

Before the bill was pulled, Trump tweeted at the Freedom Caucus, saying Planned Parenthood funding would continue if they blocked the legislation.

Biden says if he'd run for president he could have won

Former Vice President Joe Biden says that if he had run for president in 2016 he could have won.

Biden told students at Colgate University in central New York on Friday that he could have won the election but the Democratic primary would have been “very difficult.”

Biden said his son Beau’s battle with brain cancer kept him out of the race.

The Observer-Dispatch of Utica reports ( http://bit.ly/2nS1bWc ) that Biden said anyone who runs for president should be able to “look the public in the eye and promise you they can give you 100 percent.”

Biden says he doesn’t regret not running but added, “Do I regret not being president? Yes.”

Biden says he hopes President Donald Trump, a Republican, “grows into the job a little bit.”

Iran imposes sanctions on 15 US companies

Iran said Sunday it has imposed sanctions on 15 American companies over their alleged support for Israel, terrorism and repression in the region.

A Foreign Ministry statement carried by the state-run IRNA news agency said the companies are barred from any agreements with Iranian firms and that former and current directors will not be eligible for visas.

The move is seen as a response to U.S. sanctions placed on dozens of Iranian entities in February following an Iranian missile test. Iran’s sanctions are unlikely to have much impact as none of the targeted U.S. companies are known to do business in Iran.

The companies include Bent Tal, United Technologies Products. ITT Corporation, Raytheon, Re/Max Real Estate, Magnum Research Inc., Oshkosh Corporation, Kahr Arms and Elbit Systems.

A senior Iranian lawmaker meanwhile said Iran would consider a bill branding the U.S. military and the CIA as terrorist groups if the U.S. Congress passes a bill designating Iran’s Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization.

Such moves could heighten tensions in Iraq and Syria, where Iranian-backed forces and a U.S.-led coalition are battling the Islamic State group.

Allaeddin Boroujerdi, the head of parliament’s national security and foreign policy committee, was quoted by state TV as saying the move to further sanction the Revolutionary Guard goes against the 2015 nuclear deal Iran reached with the United States and other world powers.

Tehran and Washington have had no diplomatic relations since 1979, when militant students stormed the U.S. Embassy and took 52 Americans hostages for 444 days.

Syrian opposition calls on US to spare civilians in Raqqa

A leading Syrian opposition group is calling on the U.S.-led coalition to stop targeting residential areas in and around Raqqa, the Islamic State group’s de facto capital.

The Syrian National Coalition says it is “increasingly concerned” about civilian casualties in the campaign against the extremist group. The exiled opposition coalition is taking part in U.N.-mediated talks in Geneva.

The SNC says it believes coalition forces were behind an airstrike that killed at least 30 civilians sheltering in a school in the countryside outside Raqqa on March 21. The coalition has said it is investigating.

The U.S. has provided substantial air and ground support to the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, who are closing in on Raqqa.

New anxieties as Trump says Obamacare will 'explode'

Americans who benefited from President Barack Obama’s health care law and were relieved when a Republican push to repeal it failed are facing a new set of anxieties as President Donald Trump says the law will “explode.”

Premiums have risen and major insurers have backed out of the online state markets where people can buy insurance under Obama’s 2010 law, the Affordable Care Act. But people who say it saved their lives or helped them start a business want lawmakers to fix the law’s problems, not wait to see it fail.

Trump Tweeted on Saturday that “ObamaCare” will explode.

“It’s a large and complicated homicide scene,” Cincinnati Police Department Sgt. Eric Franz told ABC News of the scene at Cameo Nightclub.

“There was a shooting here this morning around one o’clock in the morning,” he said. “We have 14 people that have been injured from gunfire, one of which is deceased.”

Sgt. Franz added, “At this point we have multiple witnesses we’re interviewing and we have nobody in custody.”

“We’ve got a really large scene at multiple hospitals,” he said of the victims.

Kelly Martin, a spokeswoman for University of Cincinnati Medical Center, told ABC News that it admitted 8 people early this morning, but she did not specify if those individuals were connected to the shooting.

A spokesman for Bethesda North told ABC News it admitted two patients related to the shooting.

London attacker was in Saudi Arabia 3 times, says embassy

London terror attack suspect Khalid Masood visited Saudi Arabia three times — including two stints teaching English — but he was not on any security watchlist, the kingdom’s London embassy said late Friday.

“The Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia wishes to clarify that Khalid Masood was in Saudi Arabia from November 2005 to November 2006 and April 2008 to April 2009, when he worked as an English teacher having first obtained a work visa,” the embassy said in a statement. “In 2015, he obtained an Umra visa through an approved travel agent and was in the Kingdom from the 3rd-8th March.”

Masood was also not on the radar of security officials.

“During his time in Saudi Arabia, Khalid Masood did not appear on the security services’ radar and does not have a criminal record in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” the statement read.

The embassy expressed its condolences to Britain, writing, “Saudi Arabia continues to stand with the United Kingdom during this difficult time and reaffirms its commitment to continue its work with the United Kingdom in any way to assist in the ongoing investigation.”

The embassy also took the opportunity to stress its commitment to defeating terrorism.

“The attack in London this week has again demonstrated the importance of international efforts to confront and eradicate terrorism,” the embassy said. “At such a time, our ongoing security cooperation is most crucial to the defeat of terrorism and the saving of innocent lives.”

Masood’s reign of terror began Wednesday after a car he was driving struck pedestrians and three police officers on Westminster Bridge.

The car then crashed into the fence around the Houses of Parliament, and armed with a knife, he attacked an officer who was standing guard.

Masood was shot and killed by police.

Four people — including police officer Keith Palmer — were killed, and at least 28 were injured.

On Saturday, Palmer’s family released a statement thanking the public and the London Metropolitan Police for the support and well wishes.

“We want to thank everyone who has reached out to us over the past few days for their kindness and generosity,” the statement read. “The police have been a constant, unwavering support at this very difficult time. It has made us realize what a caring, strong and supportive family Keith was part of during his career with the police. We can’t thank them enough.”

The statement added, “We would also like to express our gratitude to the people who were with Keith in his last moments and who were working that day. There was nothing more you could have done.”

WH official: Trump aide in charge of surrogate operations leaving post

Boris Epshteyn, the special assistant to the president in charge of surrogate operations is leaving his post, a senior Trump administration official told ABC News Saturday.

He may assume a different role in the White House, though. “We are exploring opportunities within the administration,” the official said.

Epshteyn has served various roles, including senior adviser on the Trump-Pence transition team and director of communications for the Presidential Inaugural Committee.

A lawyer who received his J.D. from Georgetown University, the Russian-born Epshteyn frequently appeared on TV: first as a surrogate during the campaign, then as a paid staffer.

Epshteyn has yet to publicly comment about departing his post.

Emails between teen allegedly kidnapped by former teacher reveal 'romantic interest in each other'

As law enforcement officers across the country continue to hunt for Tennessee teen Elizabeth Thomas and her former teacher Tad Cummins — who allegedly kidnapped the 15-year-old — investigators have shed light on their relationship, revealing that emails between the pair have uncovered a “romantic interest in each other.”

Thomas and Cummins wrote emails to each other but did not send them — instead they would save the email in the drafts folder of 40-year-old Cummins’ school email account, the Maury County District Attorney and the Sheriff’s Office revealed Friday.

“They would write the message and let it save as a draft,” Maury County District Attorney Brent Cooper explained to ABC affiliate WAAY in Huntsville, Alabama. “The other person would log in, read the message and then delete it and then write another message that was saved as a draft.”

Investigators said the pair wrote inappropriate messages to each other, but Cooper declined to elaborate.

“If you read them you would immediately recognize you are reading messages between two people who have a romantic interest in each other,” Cooper said.

The lead investigator on the case shared one of the emails with WAAY.

“‘I saw you standing next to you backpack this morning’ and [Cummins] makes a reference to a body part of hers and how nice that looked,” said Marcus Alright with the Maury County Sheriff’s Department.

Meanwhile, a former coworker of Cummins is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.

Chandler Anderson, a nurse practitioner in Columbia, Tennessee, first met Cummins in 1998. Prior to being a teacher he was a respiratory therapist.

Anderson says he’s worried about Thomas.

“You’ve got to do something to motivate people to be more vigilant about trying to find this young girl, because this is not going to end well if we don’t get her home, and get her home soon,” he said.
