Peace and Freedom

.

The text of President Donald Trump’s speech to Congress, as released by the White House.

———

Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, Members of Congress, the First Lady of the United States, and Citizens of America:

Tonight, as we mark the conclusion of our celebration of Black History Month, we are reminded of our Nation’s path toward civil rights and the work that still remains. Recent threats targeting Jewish Community Centers and vandalism of Jewish cemeteries, as well as last week’s shooting in Kansas City, remind us that while we may be a Nation divided on policies, we are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all its forms.

Each American generation passes the torch of truth, liberty and justice – in an unbroken chain all the way down to the present.

That torch is now in our hands…

Key US inflation measure hits fastest pace since 2012

Peace and Freedom

AFP


© AFP/File | The PCE price index, which tracks the value of goods and services purchased by the public, jumped 0.4 percent in January 2017
WASHINGTON (AFP) – A closely watched measure of US inflation in January hit its fastest monthly pace in nearly four years, the Commerce Department reported Wednesday.

The data also showed that the Personal Consumption Expenditures price index, the US Federal Reserve’s preferred measure of inflation, grew at an annual rate of 1.9 percent, a hair’s breadth below the Fed’s two percent target.

That increase likely will boost expectations the Fed could raise interest rates this month rather than waiting until later in the year.

The central bank held its fire for most of 2016 but Fed Chair Janet Yellen testified last month that rate hikes were coming and possibly soon.

The Commerce Department data showed that while personal income grew 0.4 percent in the month…

South Africa has deported 97 Nigerians for various offences following a series of raids, Nigerian officials said on Wednesday, amid heightened bilateral tensions over anti-immigrant violence in South Africa.

Abike Dabiri-Erewa, senior special assistant to Nigeria’s president on diaspora matters, said the deported Nigerians had arrived home on Monday.

“Some of them claimed they were returned for irregular migration offences when the South Africa authority withdrew their voluntary work permits that it had hitherto given to African migrants, and made … work permits more difficult to get,” she said.
