Trump cuts short infrastructure meeting, blasts Pelosi's 'cover-up' accusation

United States WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Wednesday abruptly cut off a meeting with U.S. congressional Democrats on infrastructure spending, then ripped into them over intensifying investigations by lawmakers and U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s accusation that he is engaged in a cover-up. “I don’t do cover-ups,” an agitated Trump told reporters at a previously unscheduled White House appearance afterward, as he unleashed a litany of gripes about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe and follow-up inquiries by congressional Democrats that the Republican...

Russia's First Seaborne Nuclear Power Plant Sets Sail Across Arctic

Russia’s first floating nuclear power plant set sail on Friday from the Arctic port of Murmansk to provide power to one of the country’s most remote regions, sparking environmental concerns.

Supreme Court sets higher bar for stripping citizenship

Supreme Court sets higher bar for stripping citizenship

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Supreme Court handed a setback to the Trump administration on Thursday by making it harder for the government to strip immigrants of U.S. citizenship in a case involving an ethnic Serb woman who lied about her husband’s military service after Yugoslavia’s collapse. The justices ruled 9-0 that a naturalized American citizen cannot be stripped of citizenship if a lie or omission on immigration forms was irrelevant to the government’s original decision to grant entry into the United States. They rejected the Trump administration’s stance that the government should be...

French nuclear plants tighten hygiene procedures over coronavirus worries

United States PARIS (Reuters) - French utility EDF is introducing stricter hygiene procedures at its nuclear plants after walk-outs by a small number of workers who feared getting infected with coronavirus during radiation screening, union and industrial sources said on Friday. Under French labor laws, staff have the right to walk off the job if they consider there is a clear and imminent threat to their health or safety. After working in the radioactive areas of nuclear plants, staff have to step through narrow shower-style portals in their underwear to be checked for possible radiation...
