Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, R-Miss., and Mike Espy, a former congressman and former U.S. agriculture secretary. Mississippi Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith apologized Tuesday evening for a recent remark that evoked the South’s ugly past of racial terror against African-Americans and has turned what should be an easy win for the GOP in a runoff election for the U.S. Senate into an unexpectedly competitive race. There was no ill will, no intent whatsoever in my statement,” Hyde-Smith said in a debate with Democrat Mike Espy.

Save the Children based its figures on mortality rates for untreated cases of severe acute malnutrition, or SAM, in young children. The United Nations says more than 1.3 million children have suffered from SAM since a Saudi-led coalition went to war with Yemen's Houthi rebels in March 2015.

Trump cited an overwhelmed immigration system for his recent proclamation that officials will only process asylum claims for migrants who present themselves at an official entry point along the U.S.-Mexico frontier. The Justice Department on Tuesday said it was "absurd" that Tigar allowed civil rights groups to have the ability "to stop the entire federal government from acting so that illegal aliens can receive a government benefit to which they are not entitled." The asylum ruling came as thousands of Central Americans, including a large number of children, are traveling in caravans toward the U.S. border to escape violence and poverty at home. "We look forward to continuing to defend the Executive Branch's legitimate and well-reasoned exercise of its authority to address the crisis at our southern border," the Justice Department said.

Georgia’s hotly contested election for governor was neither fair nor free, former Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams said in a Monday night interview.

US authorities have installed a new barrier at one of the busiest crossing points along the US-Mexico border following protests sparked by the contentious migrant caravan. The fence, which closed down the entry point for a moment, was installed just a day after around 400 Tijuana residents waived flags and chanted “Out! Out!” to protest the refugees and migrants who arrived in the border town last week, according to local media. The US authorities shut down one of two pedestrian bridges on the San Ysidro crossing, with the apparent hope that the barrier would slow any rush from those in the migrant caravan hoping to make their way north.
The presidential pardon of the Thanksgiving turkey has become an annual event, but the peace pact between the fowl and the White House is a relatively new thing. The first president to unofficially pardon a turkey was Abraham Lincoln, who instructed the White House to save a bird given to the president. Lincoln’s son had grown fond of the bird (and the president was a big animal lover).
Aerial view of devastation left by wildfires in Northern California.
Given the size and scope of the devastation after a deadly wildfire swept Northern California, experts say the search to find the missing and identify victims could take months. Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea has released a daily list of names of people who are unaccounted for, saying he doesn't expect it to be an accurate tally of the missing. There are at least a dozen names marked as "unknown," including a "cousin" and several with no last names.

Carlos Ghosn's status as an outsider in Japan brought him huge success, as his maverick style blew a gale through a musty corporate world, but his disregard of business norms may ultimately prove his undoing. The companies he rescued -- Nissan and Mitsubishi -- looked set to dump him as chairman and his legacy as a boardroom saviour lay in tatters. "Ghosn is likely the most successful foreign chairman in Japan," said Kosuke Sato, a senior economist at the Japan Research Institute.

President Donald Trump wanted to order the Department of Justice to prosecute Hillary Clinton, his Democratic challenger in the 2016 election, and former FBI Director James Comey and had to be talked down from the decision by the White House counsel, according to a report Tuesday in The New York Times. Trump, who has attacked the pair ceaselessly in campaign rallies and interviews, told now-former White House counsel Don McGahn that he wanted the nation’s top law enforcement agency to investigate several unfounded accusations, including claims that Comey shared classified information with the Times and that Clinton played a role in the approval of a uranium mining company sale to Russia.

Intense fighting broke out in Yemen's port city of Hodeidah late on Monday, shattering a lull in violence that had raised hopes for a ceasefire between a Saudi-led coalition and Houthi insurgents as the United Nations tried to resume peace talks. One resident said a medium-range missile had been fired from the city centre towards the district in the suburbs. The coalition led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates had last week ordered a halt in its offensive against the Houthi-held Red Sea port city, now a focus of the war, amid pressure from the West to end a conflict that has pushed Yemen to the brink of famine.
George T. Conway III, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, has emerged as one of President Trump’s most persistent, biting critics, describing the administration his wife works in as a “s***house in a dumpster fire” in an interview with the Yahoo News Skullduggery podcast. Conway is a prominent Republican lawyer who supported Trump during the campaign. In the same podcast interview, Conway spoke for the first time about his own role in helping to drive the events that led to Clinton’s impeachment — a cause he took up, he said, over his outrage about the president’s efforts to avoid accountability for allegations of sexual harassment dating back to when he was governor of Arkansas.
