It’s not just the presidency: Trump is changing the Congress

Inquirer Breaking News - 4 hours 7 min ago
WASHINGTON --- Donald Trump isn't just changing the presidency during his first term in office. He's also changing Congress. More than perhaps any president in modern history, Trump has been willing to ignore, defy and toy with the legislative branch, asserting power and breaking norms in ways his predecessors would hardly dare. Republicans shrug it off as Trump being Trump, leaving Democrats almost alone to object. While the Democratic-run House took the extraordinary step of impeaching the president, the GOP-controlled Senate acquitted. Over time, there's been a noticeable imbalance of power, a president with few restraints drifting toward what the founders warned against. ...

Inquirer Breaking News - 4 hours 39 min ago
OAKLAND, California --- Friday's widespread crashes of popular apps running on the iPhone's iOS operating system --- including Tinder, Spotify and Pinterest --- serve as a reminder that Facebook is still tracking you through your phone using sophisticated software, even if you're not browsing the social network. Early Friday, users of the apps reported crashes when they tried to open them up. Facebook attributed the problem, which was quickly fixed, to a bug in its software development kit, or SDK, a tool developers use to integrate their apps with Facebook.

Inquirer Breaking News - 6 hours 35 min ago
HAVANA --- The COVID-19 pandemic is sweeping through the leadership of Latin America, with two more presidents and powerful officials testing positive this week for the new coronavirus, adding a destabilizing new element to the region's public health and economic crises.
