Jan 16, 2019 — Fox News

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took the extraordinary step Wednesday of urging President Trump to delay his State of the Union address until the partial government shutdown ends, or submit the address in writing.

Minister Theresa May suffers devastating defeat on key Brexit vote

Jan 15, 2019 — Fox News

British Prime Minister Theresa May suffered a crushing defeat Tuesday as Parliament overwhelmingly rejected her Brexit deal with the European Union—a defeat that places the future of Brexit in doubt and is likely to spark increased calls for May’s ouster via a general election.

May’s withdrawal agreement was voted down 432-202, the largest for a prime minister in the history of the House of Commons.
