Jimmy Carter and Donald Trump make an unlikely pair. For Trump and his conservative base, Carter's presidency was defined by American decline. During the 2016 election, Carter said that Trump's campaign had "tapped a waiting reservoir... of racism."
We spent this week debating whether or not past presidents of the United States reached out to the families of the men and women who bravely lost their lives serving our country. That is how low our politics have sunk.

Speaking to Fox News on Sunday, H.R. McMaster -- President Donald Trump's national security adviser, and a thinking warrior with a firm grasp of history and reality -- made a stunning claim: Trump has "helped us restore our strategic competence."
LUXEMBOURG (Reuters) - European Union ministers told Britain it must offer more concessions on leaving the bloc before the other 27 states will begin trade talks, signaling that Prime Minister Theresa May's trip to Brussels had failed to bring a breakthrough.
NAIROBI (Reuters) - Somalia is in desperate need for donated blood to treat survivors of a truck bombing in the capital Mogadishu on Saturday that killed more than 300 people and injured at least 400 others, a minister said.
Aaron Rodgers is one of the National Football League's best players, and with his potentially season-ending injury, the NFL will be put to the test. Does the league treasure its fervent black supporters as much as it does fans of President Donald Trump and a number of other white Americans, who seem to believe they alone should define patriotism? Aaron Rodgers' broken collarbone puts one of league's signature franchises, the Green Bay Packers, a team that was expected to contend for the Super Bowl this season, on the spot. Will they pass on a free agent, Colin Kaepernick, that took the San Francisco 49ers to within one play of winning a title a few years ago?
Anyone who doesn't understand why so many people have been aroused and inspired by Steve Bannon's culture "war talk" should listen to the Paul Ryan interview on "Face the Nation" a few weeks back. It offered a perfect example of what frustrates them about the Republican leadership. Prompted by host John Dickerson on the issue of race relations, the House speaker advised President Donald Trump and other leaders to change their adversarial ways.
SANTA ROSA, Calif. (Reuters) - Firefighters began gaining ground on wildfires that killed at least 41 people in the past week, the deadliest blazes in California's history, as winds eased and searchers combed charred ruins for more victims with hundreds still missing.
Add Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance to the long list of people harmed by the exploding Harvey Weinstein scandal. Critics are faulting Vance for failing to prosecute Weinstein in 2015, when an Italian model told cops she'd been sexually abused by the movie mogul and worked with police to record Weinstein admitting to grabbing her.
"Saturday Night Live" typically satirizes the political events of the previous week. But this weekend, "SNL" took a shot at forecasting what Trump's next culture war will be: Demanding every store employee say "Merry Christmas" this holiday season.
MADRID (Reuters) - Luis Suarez struck late to snatch a 1-1 draw for Barcelona at Atletico Madrid on Saturday but their lead over Real Madrid at the top of La Liga was cut to five points after Cristiano Ronaldo inspired the champions to a 2-1 win at Getafe.
I spent 10 years playing in the NFL, won a Super Bowl and have been blessed beyond imagination -- in no small part because of the best fans in professional sports -- fans of multiple races, genders, religions and political persuasions.
(Reuters Health) - When medical errors lead to serious injuries, patients and families may feel better when doctors take the time to listen to their feelings about the mistake and explain what can be done to prevent it from happening again, a small study suggests.
The waves from the Caribbean Sea crash on the shore right beneath the back window of Irma Torres' concrete-walled home in southeast Puerto Rico. Hurricane Maria ripped part of the roof away when it slammed into Yabucoa, Puerto Rico last month.

On the Monday afternoon in the immediate aftermath of the worst mass shooting in modern US history, I looked out of my plane window and stared at the two broken hotel windows on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. My flight was landing at Las Vegas's McCarran International Airport, adjacent to the "killing field," where the night before a lone gunman inexplicably gunned down 58 innocent lives and injured some 500 more.
SONOMA, Calif. (Reuters) - Firefighters began to gain ground on Thursday against wildfires that have killed at least 26 people in Northern California and left hundreds missing in the pandemonium of mass evacuations in the heart of the state's wine country.

How would the last week of American news be covered if Trump were not the President of the United States but instead the leader of "Nambia," the fictional African country that he accidentally invented during a recent press conference?
It's still unclear whether Donald Trump's expected decision to decertify the Iran nuclear deal will lead to the total collapse of the agreement. But the truth is that decertification is only half the story. The bigger threat to the deal is Trump's apparent intention to ratchet up pressure in the region on Tehran. Doing so risks not only scuppering the agreement, but putting the United States and Iran on a collision course that could result in outright conflict.
In the world of sex abuse litigation, some things change and some things never do. Bill Cosby allegedly used Quaaludes and a famous television show to lure young women to his "casting couch." Harvey Weinstein allegedly used his shower and his aphrodisiac and drug of choice: the promise of Hollywood movie fame. Both men, however, were united in their choice of protective legal shields: the court-sanctioned use of secret nondisclosure settlement agreements (NDAs), which prevented future victims from learning about previous accusations made against the media moguls.
CNN asked a group of women and men -- actors, writers and other thinkers -- to explore questions raised not just by the harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein, but by a series of recent challenges to women that have reopened discussion about sexual harassment, gender and power: What is the biggest impediment to equality for women and girls today? And what made you realize anew that it was there?
Oct 10 (Reuters) - JPMorgan Chase & Co Chief Executive Jamie Dimon is among a roster of high-profile names who will contribute to the online opinion section that NBC News launched on Tuesday, the network said.
Every day we learn more about the scale and effectiveness of Russian influence operations during the 2016 US election. The implications for our political process are ominous, but the problem runs much deeper. For years hostile foreign governments, terrorist groups, and armies of internet trolls have manipulated public discussion, both in the United States and around the world.
As Americans watched the devastation unfolding in Puerto Rico last week I read, listened, tweeted and posted information on my social media timelines. Then came the text bubbles on my cell phone screen:
On Saturday morning, Donald Trump took to Twitter to whine that comedians are being unfair to him...again. This time Trump tweeted: "Late Night host are dealing with the Democrats for their very "unfunny" & repetitive material, always anti-Trump! Should we get Equal Time?"
BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Argentine President Mauricio Macri's business-friendly coalition is poised to win an important Senate seat in two weeks, opinion polls showed on Sunday, potentially damaging former populist President Cristina Fernandez's attempted comeback.

The past week saw two remarkable developments at the United Nations, and the world took notice of both. One was the passage of a resolution condemning the use of the death penalty as punishment for consensual gay relations. LGBT groups viewed the moment as a major milestone, what the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association called a "historic first." Celebrations, however, were muted. That's because of the other occurrence: The United States, until recently a leader in the global effort to advance human rights, voted against the resolution.
The violence we witnessed following Catalonia's referendum vote this weekend was terrifying, but it can and should be a lesson for the world about the importance of upholding the spirit of democracy and the protection of human rights.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson made a remarkable statement on Wednesday, rejecting reports he had considered resigning and reaffirming his commitment to the President's domestic and foreign policies. This was both stunning and unprecedented. It was not quite a hostage video, but it seemed awkward that a secretary of state felt compelled to defend himself in response to a press report.
At least 58 people were killed and over 500 injured when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire on a country music festival in Las Vegas. The crime instantly entered the record books as the worst mass shooting in modern American history.
All children have incredible potential, most with parents, teachers and other adults in their lives who want the best for them. Unfortunately, many schools, particularly those that serve children with the greatest need, face obstacles that limit children's educational success -- rote curriculums, insufficient support for teachers and scant extracurricular options, to name a few.
Finally lumbering into a devastated Puerto Rico aboard Air Force One, almost two weeks after Hurricane Maria made landfall, President Trump came face-to-face with the kind of reality he can't deflect with anger and derision. A world waited to see if in a crisis, an unscripted Trump would rise to the occasion. He did not.
On Monday, Hayley Geftman-Gold, a top CBS executive, posted on Facebook that she didn't have sympathy for the victims gunned down at the country music festival in Las Vegas because "country music fans are often Republican gun toters."
Semiautomatic weapons are not protected by the Second Amendment. The federal government and the states can outlaw them, a point underscored by none other than the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who emphasized that the Second Amendment protects gun ownership of the types of arms that were "in common use" in 1791, when the Second Amendment was adopted.
(Reuters Health) - Some plastic surgeons have gained large social media followings by sharing theatrical videos of surgery with entertainment, rather than education, in mind. Now experts are proposing ethics guidelines to ensure that the content of plastic surgery videos on social media isnâ€™t harmful to patients.
(Reuters Health) - Meditation may help reduce the risk of heart disease when itâ€™s added to proven approaches like lifestyle changes or drugs to lower blood pressure and cholesterol, U.S. doctors say.
The best lines of the "Saturday Night Live" season premiere came in the cold open when Alec Baldwin, reprising his role as President Donald Trump, said: "Trust me, it may seem that what's coming out of my mouth is B-A-N-A-N-A-N-A-S, but it's all part of the plan." Baldwin then gleefully added, "The more chaos I cause, the less people can focus. They're all getting so tired, so tired."
It is a difficult task to turn the memory of Hurricane Katrina into a quaint story of well-meaning government actors unable to save a city from destruction. President Donald Trump managed to do that on Saturday morning when he essentially blamed Puerto Rico and its mayor, in a series of tweets, for the devastation they are facing. From his own golf club, Trump attacked rather than reflected and helped.
CARACAS (Reuters) - Around 1 million unvaccinated Venezuelan children are susceptible to measles, a highly contagious disease that has re-emerged in the crisis-stricken South American nation, a group of doctors estimated on Friday.
In remembering Hugh Hefner, who has died at 91, many are talking about his contributions to American culture. It must be added that -- while those contributions loom large -- they also cast a considerable shadow.
Fresh from yet another failure to repeal-and-not-quite-replace Obamacare, President Trump and fellow Republicans are attempting to pull another trick out of their traditional playbook: "massive" tax cuts, mainly helping the rich.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is maybe the worst person in the country to scold others about the need to cherish constitutional rights, as he did this week at Georgetown University. Or maybe only the second worst, because it's hard to top the hypocrisy of his boss.
When educational institutions start narrowing their interpretation of the First Amendment, which empowers citizens to share their thoughts and opinions in public places (especially those funded by tax dollars), we should all be worried. Look no further than the Georgetown University Law Center on Tuesday afternoon.
After spending the weekend feuding with football players and trashing Sen. John McCain, on Monday night President Donald Trump turned his attention to the devastation still faced by several regions in the wake of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
As the latest Republican replacement for the Affordable Care Act begins its death rattle, a growing number of physicians worry that any solution Washington proposes will not fix the nation's ailing health care system.

The Nixon tattoo on his back looks more expensive than the transplanted hair on his head. His fashion sense, about which he is outspoken and fastidious, seems ripped from Gilded Age cartoons about predatory industrial fat cats.
It was supposed to look effortless, German Chancellor Angela Merkel gliding to victory in this year's federal election. But the roughly 33.5% of seats that she won -- according to exit polls -- was less than anticipated, even though she secured her conservative party, the Christian Democrats (CDU), a fourth term in office.
President Donald Trump is going to war with some high-profile African-American athletes who have political thoughts on their minds.

As yet another hurricane descends into the Caribbean, vulnerable and often tourism-dependent nations are again being badly battered. Wednesday morning, Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico with 155-mph winds after devastating Dominica and other islands. After the physical impact, it will take years to rebuild; the long-term economic consequences will be even more devastating, if less obvious to the casual observer. As the destruction unfolds, the United States has a responsibility to help.
From Stephen Colbert's monologue to the diverse winners and onstage banter, TV's big night proved fertile ground for satirizing the President
In terms of politics the Emmys join the award-show party late, after the Golden Globes, Grammys, Oscars and Tonys have all taken whacks at the Trump presidency. Yet the president's preferred medium provided fertile terrain for satirizing and commenting upon the political moment, a mood that permeated everything from host Stephen Colbert's monologue to the diverse winners and onstage banter.
His retweet of a GIF, edited to appear that he knocked over Hillary Clinton with a golf shot, made it seem like the President condones violence against women, but it also dredged up two subjects that do him damage, writes Kara Alaimo.
No intelligent person can take issue with ESPN sports journalist Jemele Hill expressing her personal opinion, on her own time, via Twitter. We live in America, where freedom of speech is a constitutional right. So, let's stipulate that in a free society a grown woman can and should be afforded the opportunity to speak her mind no matter how offensive or inflammatory her take may be perceived by some. Let's also acknowledge that good and decent folks can come down on opposing sides of a debate about our current President.
Mother Nature has had a hectic past couple of weeks of hurricanes, an earthquake, wildfires and flooding. But while our attention has been turned to these humanitarian crises, Earth ducked a cosmic bullet the likes of which could have crippled human technological civilization.

One outcome of President Trump's surprise budget deal with Democrats is a potential December showdown over the fate of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and its hundreds of thousands of young beneficiaries. All eyes will turn to Congress -- where, admittedly, a major immigration deal has eluded DC lawmakers for decades now.
The international community is in an understandable frenzy over the growing Rohingya refugee crisis, which is driving the Muslim minority out of Myanmar in droves. Much of their anger is directed at Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi, who they accuse of passivity at a time of heightened violence.
WELLINGTON (Reuters) - New Zealand's Labour Party on Thursday retained its position as frontrunner in an election set for Sept. 23, with a poll showing its support edged up, threatening the center-right National Party's ten-year hold on power.
Over the past several months, Western defense ministries and militaries have expressed anxiety over the large-scale Russian military exercise known as "Zapad," or "West," slated to begin in mid-September and to engage virtually every element of Russian forces. In late July, Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges, commander of US Army Europe, warned that NATO allies fear "Zapad 17" could be a Russian "Trojan horse."
Something very strange is going on in post-mortems about the 2016 election. On the one hand, the hard evidence is piling up that a combination of factors largely outside of Hillary Clinton's control were responsible for her loss to Donald Trump. On the other hand, many apparently don't want Hillary Clinton to talk about any of that.
At a time when polarization is at its peak and truth is a four-letter word, the question on everyone's minds is: Why does evidence seem to have little influence on people's beliefs, and what can be done?
BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Argentine President Mauricio Macri's favored candidate is gaining ground against former populist leader Cristina Fernandez in a closely watched Senate race in the country's largest province of Buenos Aires, sources from both parties and two analysts said.

During their initial screening process, Navy SEALs recruits are traditionally tossed into a swimming pool with hands and feet securely tied. They are expected to deal with the stress and stay alive without panicking. If they can't, they are dismissed; it is assumed they will be unable to cope with the even more difficult challenges in the weeks of training ahead.
When CBS producers scored Steve Bannon, President Trump's ex-chief strategist, for his first interview with what Bannon terms with some disdain as the mainstream media, they may have relished the chance to expose him as the sinister tactician they believed him to be.
French President Emmanuel Macron has troubles at home this week. France's second biggest union, the CGT, is leading public sector, rail and energy workers in local strikes in protest at Macron's proposed deregulation of the labor market.

DHAKA (Reuters) - Bangladesh has proposed creating "safe zones" run by aid groups for Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar's Rakhine state to stop hundreds of thousands of refugees crossing into its territory following a military crackdown.
The thought of President Donald Trump hand-in-hand with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, smiling over how great the debt deal is going to be, shocks establishment Republicans and people inside the Beltway who've lived with the ideal of party loyalty all their lives. The big news for them isn't the deal itself, but Trump's break with his own allies on the Hill. Does he still not know how things are done?
(Reuters) - Chris Froome rebounded superbly to increase his overall lead in the Vuelta a Espana to one minute 37 seconds with a lightning late attack which left nearest challenger Vincenzo Nibali in his wake on Thursday's 18th stage.

In a war of words, like the one in which the USA is currently engaged with North Korea, it is essential to use those words effectively. But President Donald Trump is mangling the US's ability to do so.
There are few things more unpleasant than relitigating the 2016 Democratic primary. But more than a year later, it hasn't stopped, partly because the race touched on so many hot spots that continue to animate our politics: the way gender shapes how we perceive power, how class struggle collides with racial entitlement, what it even means to be "progressive" or to work outside the system.
To understand how President Donald Trump could rescind a program protecting nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants, it helps to recognize two of his strongest traits. The first is his conviction, as he explained it to me in 2014, that "most people aren't worthy of respect." The second is his profound fear of his fellow human being -- at least ones who don't resemble him.
The Utah nurse arrested when she refused to let police officers draw blood from an unconscious crash victim is considering legal action after the frightening encounter that lit up social media and provoked widespread outrage.
Forty years ago this week, NASA launched Voyager 2, the second of two spacecraft, on a grand tour of the solar system and into the mysteries of interstellar space.
