Democrats Abroad organize primary in Athens

As the race to determine the Democratic Party's presidential candidate narrows, the voice of overseas Americans could well be decisive. Those Americans who have not already voted in their state's Democratic primary, are urged to visit the King George Hotel in Syntagma Square, Athens, on Sunday, March 8, 12-5 p.m., to vote in the Global Presidential Primary.

Irrelevant truth

US President Donald Trump has no doubts about his irresistible charm. In early 2016 he famously declared that he could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot someone and still not lose any voters. Later that year, just before the presidential election, he was heard on tape declaring that "when you are a star" you can do anything, adding a demeaning act against women as proof.
