Trump cries fake news amid Kushner reports

On this, the day before Memorial Day, our President Donald Trump has returned to America from a long trip overseas, and he's also returned to Twitter, where he is busy memorializing the men and women who have died to protect this country, and championing the veterans home and overseas who still protect it.

President Trump then piled on the media bias in the coverage of this week's Montana congressional race, saying it was treated as "a big deal" by Democrats and "fake news" media "until the Republican won".

Trump also sounded off on the election of Republican Greg Gianforte into Congress. Gianforte made worldwide headlines last week because of a misdemeanor assault charge he received the day before the special election after witnesses said he slammed a reporter for the Guardian newspaper to the ground.

The latest furor was stirred up after The Washington Post reported late Friday that Kushner - arguably Trump's closest White House aide, and husband of the president's eldest daughter Ivanka - made a pre-inauguration proposal to the Russian ambassador to set up a secret, bug-proof link with the Kremlin. National security adviser H.R. McMaster told reporters on Saturday that so-called back-channeling was not unusual. "#FakeNews is the enemy!"

Strong storms, tornadoes possible in parts of Deep South
The possible tornado may have touched down in the area, which is at the coast, before moving over the water, Shashy said. The band of thunderstorms over north Florida prompted several severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings Wednesday morning.

Mr Kelly, the homeland security secretary, carried the same message on Sunday.

"Any way that you can communicate with people, particularly organisations that are maybe not particularly friendly to us, is a good thing".

Republican US Senator Lindsey Graham told CNN he doubted the Kushner reports were accurate.

Though he had not seen evidence of collusion when he stepped down on 20 January, Clapper said all the signs made an FBI investigation not only appropriate but necessary.
