trump monday news headlines

Good morning. Here are your Monday news headlines for this week.

President Trump Refuses to Listen to Khashoggi Tape

US President Donald Trump said he does not want to hear a recording that captured the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

He also called it a “suffering tape” and described it as “terrible.”

Khashoggi was slain at the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, in early October.

“We have the tape, I don’t want to hear the tape, no reason for me to hear the tape,” Trump told Fox News anchor Chris Wallace.

CIA revealed on Friday that based on their assessment, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman personally ordered the killing of Khashoggi.

The prince has since denied the CIA’s claim.

Angry Protesters Flock to Mexican Border City Tijuana

Residents have taken to the streets of Tijuana to protest the arrival of migrants trying to get to the US.

Hundreds of people came out to urge the migrants to leave the Mexican border town.

The Central American migrants have been traveling through Mexico to the US.

Both the US and Mexico have since installed heavier security at the border in response to the migrants’ arrival.

According to Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum, approximately 10,000 migrants are expected to arrive in the city in the coming weeks.

He also warned that the city was not prepared to deal with the “avalanche” of migrants.

Fatal Bronx Highway Crash Leaves Teenage Girl in Coma

A deadly car crash in the Bronx has left one 14-year-old girl in a comatose state.

The incident also killed her grandmother and her stepmom, who was five months pregnant.

The teen victim, Sky Mendoza, has already undergone surgery for a broken spine and bleeding in the brain.

On Saturday morning, the Major Deegan Expressway wreck also left Mendoza’s 12-year-old brother Orlando Mendoza and 28-year-old uncle Michael injured.

Mendoza’s family told reporters that she may never walk again after the accident.

J Crew CEO Resigns from Retail Company

The CEO of J Crew is stepping down just less than two years into the job.

In a statement on Saturday, the company confirmed that Jim Brett was leaving his post.

The move was reportedly caused by Brett’s disagreement with the board of directors over the direction J Crew should take to “evolve.”

Four senior executives are slated to share the CEO responsibilities.

Brett assumed his CEO post last July from chief executive Mickey Drexler, who has been in the company for 14 years after leaving Gap.

“The departure of Jim Brett is worrying for J Crew,” Neil Saunders, GlobalData Retail managing director said.

He added, “It leaves the brand leaderless at a time when it needs to focus its efforts on rebuilding sales and reconnecting with customers.”

Teen Racing Driver Survives Shocking Airborne Crash at Macau Grand Prix

The German driver, who is now conscious, updated her fans on Twitter and said she is set to undergo surgery today.

According to a medical report, Floersch is “not fit to race” after sustaining serious injuries.
