U.S. President Donald Trump said on Sunday a U.S. team had arrived in North Korea to prepare for a proposed summit between him and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, which Trump pulled out of last week before reconsidering. Earlier, the U.S. State Department said U.S. and North Korean officials had met at Panmunjom, a village in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) that runs along the heavily armed border between North and South Korea. “Our United States team has arrived in North Korea to make arrangements for the Summit between Kim Jong Un and myself,” Trump wrote on Twitter, in Washington’s first confirmation that U.S. officials had entered North Korea for the talks. “I truly believe North Korea has brilliant potential and will be a great economic and financial Nation one day. Kim Jong Un agrees with me on this. It will happen!” Trump added. In addition to those talks, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said a “pre-advance team” left for Singapore - … [Read more...] about US team in North Korea for talks on summit, Trump says

WASHINGTON, Dec 7 - Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Monday called for a ban on Muslims entering the United States in the most dramatic response by a candidate yet to last week's shooting spree by two Muslims who the FBI said were radicalized. Trump's "statement on preventing Muslim immigration" drew fierce criticism from some of his rivals for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, all of whom have been searching for ways to knock him out of the lead. Withering reaction flowed in from former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Ohio Governor John Kasich, Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

Editor's note: Dr. Terry F. Buss is a fellow of the U.S. National Academy of Public Administration. He wrote this article exclusively for Tuoi Tre News to discuss how mass media in the U.S. have exploded with biased coverage of the violence. In the past couple of weeks, two black men, one in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and another in Minnesota, were “executed” on video by local police. The videos were, by any estimation, quite horrific. In retaliation, five police officers in Dallas, Texas, and three officers in Baton Rouge were assassinated by two lone black gunmen. Coincidentally, a protest group, Black Lives Matter (BLM), has been protesting against racially-motivated police violence in major cities and at presidential campaign events. These protests, often seen by critics as provocative, are serving as a possible inspiration or catalyst for violence against police. BLM formed in protest over the shooting death … [Read more...] about Discussing U.S. media bias in reporting on police, violence
