Angry over US healthcare fail, Trump voters spare him blame

NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. - The day after the flaming out of US President Donald Trump's first major legislative initiative, his supporters across America were lashing out - at conservatives, at Democrats, at leaders of his Republican Party in Congress.

Only Trump himself was spared their wrath.

Many voters who elected him appeared largely willing to give him a pass on the collapse of his campaign promise to overhaul the US healthcare system, stressing his short time in office.

"Being a businessman, he'll not take 'no' for an answer," said Tony Nappi, a 71-year-old from Trinity, Florida, one of the many disappointed Republicans on his weekend softball team.

"He'll get the job done."

Support for Trump appeared unflagging, from the playing fields of a Republican stronghold in central Florida to the small town diners of North Carolina, the suburbs of Arkansas and the streets of working-class Staten Island in New York City.

Rebellion among members of his own party sealed the failure of Trump's effort to repeal and replace the 2010 Affordable Care Act - known as Obamacare - the signature domestic policy achievement of Democratic former President Barack Obama.

Despite casting himself on the campaign trail as "the best dealmaker there is", Trump could not save the healthcare bill yanked by Republican leaders in the House of Representatives on Friday in an embarrassing turn of events for them and Trump. Objections among Republican moderates and the party's most conservative lawmakers left leaders short of the votes needed for passage, with Democrats unified in opposition.

"He can't wave a magic wand," said Ramona Bourdo, 70, a retired nurse, eating breakfast at a McDonald's in suburban Little Rock, Arkansas. "I've not lost confidence in him."

Still, the barista at the Grind Cafe in Morganton, North Carolina, who cannot afford his own insurance and remains on his parents' plan, felt Trump shared responsibility in the debacle.

"I think it's partially his fault," said Joel Martin, a 21-year-old Republican and Trump supporter. "I don't think he has enough personal knowledge to do what he needs to do to get a healthcare bill through Congress."

His hometown, population 17,000, sits within the heavily rural congressional district of Representative Mark Meadows, a North Carolina Republican whose opposition as the head of the conservative House Freedom Caucus helped sink the bill.

Sharing in the frustration of loyal Republicans was 82-year-old Jeanette Madison, a registered independent in the New York City borough of Staten Island, who voted for Trump.

"I blame the Democrats and Republicans in Congress. They area bunch of bastards. I'm just fed up," she said, apologizing for colorful language as she walked her dog down a city street.

LESSONS TO LEARN

In Florida's Pasco County, where Trump's stronger-than-expected showing helped to seal his victory in the largest US battleground state, some fans seized on the silver lining.

Neighbors Patti Niehaus, a Democrat, and Margie Hahne, a Republican, agreed that Trump may have needed last week's crashcourse in governing, having never before held elected office.

"You can't just go and tell people what to do like he's used to doing," said Hahne, 74. "Trump's got to learn a lot."

Bridging Tampa's booming suburbs and still rural parts of central Florida, Pasco County lies in a politically decisive swing region of the state along the Interstate 4 highway corridor linking Tampa and Orlando.

Trump won 58.4 percent of the vote in the mostly white, working- and middle-class county, surpassing the past two Republican presidential candidates by tens of thousands of votes.

His pledge to end Obamacare helped to sway Kelle DeGroat, a 37-year-old nurse, a Republican who is open to other parties.

"I thought there was a good plan the way he talked," said DeGroat, still confident in Trump's ability to make reform happen. "I was shocked that it didn't pass."

Other Republicans applauded their leaders for returning to the drawing board, with polls showing the derailed healthcare plan to be unpopular following predictions that it would jeopardize or increase the cost of insurance for millions.

Lisa Collins, a 53-year-old teacher with two adult children benefiting from Obamacare, for the first time started calling the region's elected representatives to voice her opposition.

"This is a success that the party listened," said Collins, a Republican who did not support Trump. "To me, that's amazing.

They represented the average normal guy, the small guy."

US strike kills an al Qaida 'leader' in Afghanistan -Pentagon

WASHINGTON - The Pentagon said on Saturday a US strike in Afghanistan this week killed an al Qaida militant who was responsible for the death of two American service members and accused of involvement in a deadly attack on a bus carrying Sri Lanka's cricket team in 2009.

The Pentagon said in a statement the strike took place on March 19 in Paktika province and killed Qari Yasin, "a well-known al (Qaida) terrorist leader."

"The death of Qari Yasin is evidence that terrorists who defame Islam and deliberately target innocent people will not escape justice," US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said in the statement.

China-New Zealand partnership growing stronger: Chinese ambassador

WELLINGTON - Chinese Premier Li Keqiang's upcoming visit to New Zealand is of great significance to the promotion of the comprehensive strategic partnership between the two countries in a new era, Chinese Ambassador to New Zealand Wang Lutong has said in published article.

At the invitation of New Zealand's Prime Minister Bill English, Li kicks off a four-day official visit to the Oceanian country on Sunday, marking the first visit by a Chinese premier in 11 years.

The visit also comes at the 45th anniversary of the establishment of bilateral relations.

Practical cooperation in various fields between China and New Zealand has made remarkable progress, with bilateral trade exceeding 20 billion New Zealand dollars (14.08 billion U.S. dollars) last year, up nearly 5 percent year on year, Wang wrote, adding that the two sides are working to bring the volume up to 30 billion New Zealand dollars (21.12 billion U.S. dollars) by 2020.

Noting that China is the world's largest developing country and New Zealand is a small- to medium-sized developed economy, they are highly complementary in trade, Wang said, adding that bilateral trade in goods is booming and trade in services, especially tourism, is rising rapidly.

Meanwhile, New Zealand has seen more investment from Chinese enterprises in such areas as new agriculture, animal husbandry, food processing, finance and aviation.

Bilateral economic and trade cooperation has great potential, said Wang, adding that the two countries could further strengthen collaboration in food processing, emerging industries, sci-tech innovation, environmental cooperation, large mechanical and electrical products, and telecommunication.

He said Chinese enterprises are still at an early stage of investing in New Zealand and have bright prospects, especially as the country's demand for infrastructure upgrading is urgent and has a huge market.

Wang said China hopes New Zealand's government will provide a more open, fairer and more transparent investment and operation environment for Chinese enterprises investing in New Zealand, so as to lay a more solid foundation for the two nations to further expand their practical cooperation.

In addition, Wang wrote, New Zealand is a "natural extension" of the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, so China welcomes New Zealand to participate in building the Belt and Road.

The Belt and Road Initiative, which comprises the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road and was put forward by Chinese President Xi Jinping in 2013, aims to build a trade and infrastructure network connecting Asia with Europe and Africa along and beyond the ancient Silk Road trade routes.

China will invite New Zealand to attend a high-level meeting within the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative in May to deepen dialogues and exchanges, expand consensus and jointly engage in win-win cooperation, he said.

New Zealand is the first Western developed country to launch negotiations to upgrade the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with China, with the first round of talks scheduled for this year, he said.

Wang said the two sides aim to comprehensively upgrade the FTA through negotiations, rather than just discussing a specific sector.

Negotiations will touch on investment, service trade, quarantine of animals and plants, the Principle of Original Production Place, economy and technology, e-commerce, and competition policies, in order to promote the FTA to a higher level.

Moreover, China has been New Zealand's largest source of foreign students for more than a decade, with 31,000 Chinese students studying in various educational institutions last year.

The two countries have cooperated in building three Confucius Institutes and 30 Confucius Classrooms in New Zealand, and more than 300 primary and middle schools here have Mandarin courses, with more than 40,000 primary and middle school students learning Mandarin Chinese.

On cultural exchanges, both governments and the public have been quite active, with various cultural forms and schools being introduced to each other, such as Lantern Festival activities, Chinese Week programs and Chinese cultural centers.

According to statistics from the New Zealand government, the number of Chinese citizens arriving in the country exceeded 400,000 in 2016.

China and New Zealand have in recent years cooperated actively in facilitating personnel exchanges. Since 2015, Immigration New Zealand has established cooperation with many Chinese enterprises, institutions and aviation companies in signing facilitation memorandums and other documents.

Meanwhile, New Zealand also issues one-stop Pathway Student Visas to Chinese students, with periods of validity up to five years. In 2017, New Zealand will launch facilitation procedures for Chinese citizens' customs clearance in New Zealand airports and offer multi-entry visas valid for up to five years.

Wang said these measures are of great significance to boosting personnel exchanges and deepening practical cooperation.

The development of China-New Zealand relations over the past 45 years shows that the two sides respect each other and treat each other as equals with sincerity and mutual trust, said the ambassador.

The two countries should seize the opportunities of Li's visit and the 45th anniversary to expand cooperation and implement the consensus on building their comprehensive strategic partnership, Wang said.

Given the current international circumstances, he said, China and New Zealand should also take concrete actions to jointly safeguard global free trade, oppose trade protectionism and direct globalization towards a more inclusive and beneficial direction.

By doing so, they will contribute to building an open world economy and give full play to the exemplary role of the China-New Zealand comprehensive strategic partnership, according to Wang's article.

香港投票选举前民主派游行抗议小圈子选举特首

香港特首选举投票日前夕,大约1千名民主派活动人士走上街头,抗议北京干预选举以及抗议小圈子选举。

星期天,香港近1200名主要为亲北京人士组成的选举委员会将投票选举未来五年的特首。本次选举被广泛认为主要是林郑月娥与曾俊华两位候选人之争。虽然曾俊华更受民意支持,但是由于北京的干预,人们普遍认为北京认可的林郑月娥势必胜出。

香港人权阵线等民间组织星期六发起游行,反对小圈子选举特首,估计有1千人参与。参加者手持“自己政府自己拣”、“不要林郑”等横幅。

民阵召集人区诺轩表示:“不管这次选出的是谁,都不是民主选举的结果,而是‘小圈子’选举。”

青年刺死辱母者被判无期 中国又一桩司法判案恐将引发民愤

山东去年发生一桩涉黑暴力催债事件,导致欠债人的儿子愤而杀死对母亲施暴及侮辱者,并且刺伤三人。法院近日宣判杀人者无期徒刑,引发网络热议,舆论指责警方不作为导致血案发生,也为被判刑者鸣不平。

据南方周末报星期五报道,山东女企业家苏银霞因公司面临资金困难曾借债135万元人民币,虽然其后已支付184万元并抵押一套价值70万元的房产,但10%的月息仍令她还不清欠债。2016年,她遭到讨债集团的暴力讨债,甚至被人脱裤凌辱。民警接报后到达现场,但仅轻描淡写说一句“要账可以,但不能动手打人”,随即离开,未对苏银霞及其在场的儿子提供任何保护。目睹母亲受辱,苏银霞的儿子于欢忍气不下,持刀把侮辱母亲的脱裤男子刺死,又刺伤另外3人。今年2月17日,山东聊城市中级法院审理认为,于欢面对众多讨债人长时间纠缠,不能正确处理冲突,持尖刀捅刺多人,构成故意伤害罪,对其判处无期徒刑。这一宣判近日在中国网络上引发舆论哗然和指责。
