Darfur UNAfrican Union peacekeeping force extended as tensions rise

The Security Council today voted to extend by another year the mandate of the joint United Nations-African Union peacekeeping mission in Darfur, where violence once again rocked a large camp for people uprooted by the conflict in the war-ravaged Sudanese region. In its unanimously adopted resolution, the Council strongly condemned all attacks on the mission, known as UNAMID, calling any attack or threat “unacceptable.” In the past week alone, a group of blue helmets was ambushed in western Darfur, while in the region’s south, the pilot of a UNAMID helicopter was found safe yesterday after having been held for three days by local combatants. The Council today said that it “demands that there be no recurrence of such attacks,” underscoring the importance of bolstering the security of UNAMID personnel and to end impunity for those who attack peacekeepers. The 15-member body also called for all parties to the Darfur conflict to put an immediate end to violence, as well as all attacks on civilians, peacekeepers and humanitarian workers. Some 300,000 people are estimated to have been killed and another 2.7 million others displaced from their homes since fighting erupted in Darfur, an arid region on Sudan’s western flank, in 2003. Government forces, allied Janjaweed militiamen and rebel groups have all been accused of grave human rights violations. Today’s resolution stressed that “there can be no military solution to the conflict in Darfur and that an inclusive political settlement and the successful deployment of UNAMID are essential to re-establishing peace.” The mission today reported that more than 7,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) have gathered around UNAMID’s community policing centre (CPC) outside the Kalma camp in southern Darfur after deadly violence yesterday. Tensions have been rising at Kalma following the end of the latest round of peace talks in Doha, Qatar, with some groups contending they were unrepresented. Those tensions boiled over yesterday when hundreds of IDPs – some in support of the Doha process, some in opposition – took to Kalma’s streets. Many protesters were armed with sticks and machetes, and sporadic shooting was heard throughout the camp, UNAMID reported, adding that several deaths were recorded. The mission has enhanced its security measures to ensure the safety of those gathered around the CPC, and is also working with local aid groups to provide medical assistance to those in need, including several women who had given birth. Within the camp, UNAMID’s formed police units (FPUs) – comprising police officers trained in dealing with high-risk operations – are carrying out round-the-clock patrols, while the mission’s civilian staff are mediating talks among community leaders. “Violence will only add to the people’s suffering,” said Mohammed Yonis, Deputy Joint Special Representative for UNAMID. “It is only through working together and talking to each other that we will bring peace to this land.” In a statement issued by his spokesperson yesterday, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called on “all concerned to address their differences through political dialogue and to refrain from any action that could incite violence.” Later today, the Council issued a press statement in which members voiced serious concern about the casualties in Kalma camp and the recent attacks against peacekeepers, and urged all sides to resolve the conflict peacefully. 30 July 2010The Security Council today voted to extend by another year the mandate of the joint United Nations-African Union peacekeeping mission in Darfur, where violence once again rocked a large camp for people uprooted by the conflict in the war-ravaged Sudanese region. read more


Top UN economic social body convenes Berlin symposium on development cooperation

The United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) has gathered high-level development experts in Berlin, Germany, to weigh measures that could make international development cooperation more effective in improving people’s lives worldwide. “We meet at a time of fundamental re-orientation of global development efforts,” said Wu Hongbo, Under-Secretary-General for UN Economic and Social Affairs, opening the two-day Development Cooperation Forum (DCF) High-Level Symposium, on the topic “Accountable and effective development cooperation in a post-2015 era.” “The intrinsic linkage between poverty reduction and sustainable development must guide the design of a post-2015 development agenda that is both unified and universal,” he stressed, adding that putting such a transformative agenda into place requires “robust monitoring and accountability.”The United Nations at all levels is engaged in establishing a global agenda that will transition from the landmark Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), agreed by world leaders at a UN summit in 2000, aiming to slash extreme hunger and poverty, cut maternal and infant mortality, combat disease and provide access to universal education and health care, all by the end of 2015.Despite significant progress in some areas, these targets will not be reached in many countries, and this “unfinished business” will be incorporated in an even more ambitious post-2015 agenda.Building on the key findings from the first two high-level events in Ethiopia and Switzerland, and a policy dialogue in Vienna, ECOSOSC’s 2014 expert Symposium – along with UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs and the Government of Germany – has invited more than 170 experts from Governments, civil society, the private sector and other stakeholders to discuss in Berlin accountability, best practices, and major obstacles to global sustainable development partnerships beyond 2015.“The aim is not a one-size-fits all architecture for development cooperation and its monitoring. It is to allow the diverse group of actors and approaches to flourish side by side and to lead to partnerships in line with agreed global commitments,” explained Mr. Wu. In his opening address, Mr. Wu highlighted four key conditions that would help achieve accountability in the global architecture of development cooperation: knowledge and progress sharing among all actors, integration in the broader post-2015 development agenda to ensure policy coherence, incentives for Member States to report on the progress made, and implementation of systems and technology so as not to overburden already stretched development cooperation teams on the ground.For his part, ECOSOC President Martin Sajdik “>focused his remarks on expectations for the 2014 Forum and beyond. The 2014 DCF, he noted, would tackle how to ensure development cooperation is fit for purpose in the post-2015 era.“The DCF can help ensure that all views are being heard”, he said, and the Symposium would demonstrate how the DCF serves as a vibrant forum for exchange among all development partners on an equal footing.”The conclusions drawn from the deliberations of the Symposium will also inform the discussions at the first ministerial meeting of the Busan Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation, which is to take place in Mexico in April this year. The DCF Germany Symposium will serve as the third and last key preparatory event for the 2014 Development Cooperation Forum of ECOSOC held at UN Headquarters this coming July. read more


At UN South Sudan reaffirms resolve to uphold historic peace accord

“The people of South Sudan were yearning for peace and our President took the courageous step with the help of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), and others…to sign on 26 August 2015 a Peace Agreement with the rebel leadership to silence the guns and end the war, he said.That signature was immediately followed by the President’s declaration of Permanent Ceasefire in the following day, he announced during the 70th annual General Debate.Yet, he said that the ceasefire is currently only holding in some parts of the country. This is mainly due to the absence of a Joint Monitoring and Verification Mechanism being installed on the ground.Mr. Igga also said that peace and security is the “paramount responsibility” of the Government. He also added that there are ongoing investigations on reports of human rights abuses by elements associated with our security institutions. “Committing crimes against the people we govern, or violation of human rights, has never and shall never be condoned by our Government. Promoting and protecting the safety of persons, family and community and their physical and social wellbeing is a duty that we take more seriously. We will not allow impunity to reign,” he stated.He further asked for sanctions and travel restrictions on South Sudanese officials to be lifted and urged the international community to extend their support in order to cement its peace and stability. “More than any other time in our conflict riddled history, the upcoming post-conflict imperatives of resettlement, rehabilitation, and disarmament require concerted financial and technical intervention from our many good friends around the world,” he said. “South Sudan is very resilient and its future is certainly full of hope particularly with all your assistance and cooperation, but it should not be subjected to undeserved isolation and sanctions, given its level of fragility as a new country,” he added. read more


Braxton Miller will play limited role against Florida AM

Junior quarterback Braxton Miller (5) sits on the bench during a game against San Diego State Sept. 7 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 42-7.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorAfter defeating Pac-12 foe California 52-34 in its last game, the Ohio State football team returns home this weekend to face the Florida A&M Rattlers of the Football Championship Subdivision.OSU junior quarterback Braxton Miller is expected to play a limited role in the Buckeyes final tune-up before Big Ten play begins, according to coach Urban Meyer.With Miller expected to play in limited fashion, redshirt-senior Kenny Guiton will likely receive the nod as starter for a second straight week. Against California, Guiton led the offense to more than 600 total yards of offense.Redshirt-senior offensive lineman Marcus Hall said his unit is well-prepared regardless who is under center.“Both quarterbacks suit the offensive system, so it’s actually convenient,” Hall said. “We don’t have to switch up the way we play.”Even though the offense is averaging nearly 45 points a game, there are still some concerns over the squad’s defensive prowess after allowing the Golden Bears to score 34 points.Meyer said after practice Wednesday, the unit’s biggest issue is at the linebacker position.“There were some misses in recruiting a linebacker … our linebackers should have more depth and more experience than what we have,” Meyer said. “For whatever reason, injuries and things happen, I understand that, but we should be better at linebacker. That’s the one concerning position right now.”Drawing more attention to the Buckeye backfield this weekend will be the return of senior running back Carlos Hyde, finally back after serving a three-game suspension for an offseason incident at a Columbus bar.Redshirt-senior running back Jordan Hall said Hyde’s return is a plus for the team that will put a strain on opponents’ game plans.“We’re two different types of backs, it’ll be hard to prepare for us, especially with running quarterbacks,” said Jordan Hall.Meyer also said sophomore defensive lineman Adolphus Washington will not play Saturday with a groin injury, but is probable to return for OSU’s showdown against Wisconsin Sept. 28.The Buckeyes and Rattlers (1-2) are set for a noon kickoff this Saturday at Ohio Stadium. read more

Dell savait quil vendait des produits défectueux

first_imgDell savait qu’il vendait des produits défectueuxÉtats-Unis – Dell nage dans les eaux troubles du scandale. L’entreprise texane savait que ses ordinateurs OptiPlex étaient défectueux, mais a continué à les vendre. Le fabricant va aujourd’hui devoir réparer son erreur.Plusieurs documents accablent Dell. Près de 12 millions de PC portables de la gamme OptiPlex ont en effet été vendus, pour la plupart à des PME et autres professionnels entre 2003 et 2005 : le problème, c’est que ces appareils étaient équipés de condensateurs défectueux générant une panne dans 97% des cas. Un risque de panne dont Dell avait conscience, mais qui ne l’a pas empêché de vendre ses machines. L’entreprise texane aurait même été jusqu’à briefer ses vendeurs afin d’éviter les retours, selon une note rendue publique. Après une période difficile commercialement, ce scandale nuit à l’image de Dell, qui devra travailler dur pour regagner la confiance de ses clients.Le 1 juillet 2010 à 11:23 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more


Le satellite de la Nasa pourrait retomber sur lItalie

first_imgLe satellite de la Nasa pourrait retomber sur l’ItalieLa chute des morceaux du satellite à la dérive de la NASA, prévue pour le 23 septembre pourrait retomber sur l’Italie, selon des simulations informatiques réalisées par différentes agences spatiales mondiales. S’il est pour le moment trop tôt pour prévoir l’heure et l’endroit précis ou retomberont les morceaux de l’Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS), un satellite de la NASA à la dérive, des simulations informatiques réalisées par différentes agences spatiales mondiales placent l’Italie en principale ligne de mire. Le satellite devait entrer dans l’atmosphère le vendredi 23 septembre. “Si une grande partie du satellite va se briser en de nombreux morceaux en entrant dans l’atmosphère, tous les débris ne vont pas brûler”, a souligné la NASA dans un communiqué. Un audit effectué en 2002 sur les risques induits par la retombée du satellite indique que sur les 5.668 kilogrammes de l’engin, 532 kilos seulement pourraient survivre à l’entrée dans l’atmosphère. Aussi, 26 composants de l’UARS devraient atteindre le sol dans un rayon de 800 kilomètres. Parmi les régions situées sur la trajectoire habituelle du satellite se trouvent l’Émilie-Romagne, la Toscane et la Ligurie.L’agence de presse italienne (ANSA) indique que ce scénario n’est pour le moment qu’une hypothèse et devra être confirmée par l’analyse de données qui arriveront ces prochaines heures. Dans le doute, la Protection civile italienne dirigée par Franco Gabrielli, s’est réunie ce matin avec l’Agence spatiale européenne italienne pour élaborer de possibles interventions. La NASA a par ailleurs demandé aux gens qui se retrouverait en contact avec les débris de l’engin de ne pas les toucher. En effet, ceux-ci peuvent s’avérer extrêmement coupants et “formellement, ils appartiennent au gouvernement américain”.À lire aussiInternet : l’ISS double sa connexionL’UARS est un satellite d’environ dix mètres et pesant près de six tonnes. Mis en orbite en 1991 par la navette Discovery pour étudier la haute atmosphère, il a fini sa mission en 2005 et ne peut plus se maintenir en orbite faute de carburant.

TMC helped BJP to gain ground in Bengal not CPIM Yechury

first_imgKolkata: CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury has refuted claims that it was helping the BJP get a foothold in Bengal, and asserted the Left will come out with “surprising results” in the Lok Sabha polls. He said it was the Trinamool Congress which had facilitated the BJP-RSS to gain ground in the state. “It is a blatant lie that CPI(M) workers are helping the BJP. It is a canard spread by the saffron party and the TMC. They are trying to create a narrative that in Bengal, the fight is between the BJP and the Trinamool. This is completely wrong. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: Mamata “I can assure you that the Left will come out with surprising results.

The senior CPI(M) leader’s comments come in the backdrop of allegations by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee that the Left was working towards transfer of its vote share to the BJP in the fight against the TMC. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in state The Left Front would get the support of the young generation in the polls, he said. “The TMC had forged an alliance with the BJP in 1998. In Bengal, after coming to power, the TMC ensured that secular forces are cornered in order to make space for the BJP,” Yechury said. He also said that if the people are allowed to vote freely and fairly, they would cast their ballots in favour of the Left.last_img read more


If you only go to 2 continents in your life go to

first_img Posted by Share Wednesday, September 19, 2018 Travelweek Group “If you only go to 2 continents in your life, go to Africa twice”: Goway makes the casecenter_img TORONTO — Goway’s growth over the past several years has been fuelled by mainstays Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific, newcomer Europe and, increasingly, Africa where Goway offers more than 250 independent and escorted travel options.Agents from Toronto and the GTA were out in full force to hear all about Goway’s Africa product, which includes the Middle East, at last night’s ‘G’day to Goway’s Africa – Toronto 2018’ seminar at the Toronto Marriott Bloor Yorkville Hotel.Goway BDM Sam Cottar; David Timmins, Passenger Sales Manager, Ethiopian Airlines; Birhan Abate Mulate, Area Manager, Canada, Ethiopian Airlines; Kirsty Perring, Goway’s Product Manager, Africa & Middle East; Moira Smith, General Manager – Africa, Middle East and Europe; and Goway BDM Aubrey SchmidtEverything is selling well, with double-digit growth over the past three to four years, says Moira Smith, General Manager – Africa, Middle East and Europe. “Egypt, Morocco, Dubai … they’re all doing great,” said Smith.The Middle East especially is coming back. “Last year our southern Africa product represented 61% of our sales, East Africa was 25% and the Middle East was 12%. This year southern Africa is at 47%, East Africa 29% and the Middle East, 22%.”More news:  Onex paying big to get WestJet and that will send airfares soaring, says CWTShe added to an appreciative laugh from the audience: “If you only go to two continents in your life, go to Africa twice.”Goway’s Africa product extends from South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and more in the south, to Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and beyond in the east, to Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco in the north. Middle Eastern destinations includes Israel, Jordan, Oman and UAE.In places like Kenya and Tanzania, Smith advises agents to help clients make the most of their vacation with a hot air balloon ride over the Maasai Mara or Serengeti. “It’s the experience they’ll remember. The cost will fade, the memory never will.”Gorilla tracking in Uganda, ‘the Pearl of Africa’, is another must-do. “Gorilla tracking is incredible. It can be strenuous – warn your clients – but it’s absolutely the most rewarding thing,” says Smith.In Egypt clients will want at least a nine-day trip, focusing on Cairo with a Nile cruise. At the much-anticipated Grand Egyptian Museum, opening later this year or early next year, Goway clients can get a two-hour private guided tour. “It’s wonderful to see how popular Egypt is and how it’s coming back,” says Smith.More news:  Save the dates! Goway’s Africa Roadshow is backGoway’s Africa and Middle East product runs the gamut, she adds. “We’ve got incredible value-for-money products and we can also do wonderfully high end stuff.”More than two dozen of Goway’s Africa and Middle East partners were on hand last night for round robin sessions with the trade.Jacques Smit, Marketing Director for Sabi Sabi, says the Canadian market is continuously growing for the luxury lodge operator. “Both Canada and the U.S. started to grow rapidly for us about six years ago,” says Smit, adding that the company is working closely with Goway. The preference from the Canadian market is for FIT, with stays of three to four nights, he adds. Sabi Sabi’s portfolio includes four upscale lodges – Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge, Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge, Sabi Sabi Selati Camp and Sabi Sabi Little Bush Camp – all part of National Geographic’s Unique Lodges of the World collection.Another of Goway’s partners, Tsogo Sun, has one of its properties, 54 on Bath, featured in one of Goway’s Stays of Distinction in South Africa. Goway “is one of our biggest partners,” says Tsogo Sun Sales Representative Lorenzo Giani.Other Tsogo Sun properties especially popular with Canadian travellers include the Southern Sun Waterfront Cape Town, and Southern Sun The Cullinan. Both are four-star-plus hotels offering good value for money – music to the ears of most Canadians. << Previous PostNext Post >> Tags: Africa, Goway, Goway Travel, Statisticslast_img read more

Qantas to fly non stop Perth to London

first_imgQantas to fly non stop Perth to LondonQantas to fly non stop Perth to LondonQantas is set to add to its list of aviation firsts, with the national carrier confirming it will operate non-stop flights from Perth to London using the 787-9 Dreamliner.The 14,498 kilometre service will be the first regular passenger service to directly link Australia with Europe when it begins in March 2018.Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce said the history-making route would be a watershed for travel, tourism and trade.“When Qantas created the Kangaroo Route to London in 1947, it took four days and nine stops. Now it will take just 17 hours from Perth non-stop.“This is a game-changing route flown by a game-changing aircraft. Australians have never had a direct link to Europe before, so the opportunities this opens up are huge.“It’s great news for travellers because it will make it easier to get to London. It’s great news for Western Australia because it will bring jobs and tourism. And it’s great news for the nation, because it will bring us closer to one of our biggest trade partners and sources of visitors.”Mr Joyce said passenger comfort on the long flight was a key consideration.“When we designed the interior of our 787s, we wanted to make sure passengers would be comfortable on the extended missions the aircraft was capable of.“That’s why we have features in our Economy seats that other airlines reserve for Premium Economy. Our Business Suite has been nicknamed ‘mini First class’ by many of our frequent flyers. And we’re redesigning our on-board service to help reduce jetlag,” he added.The enhanced Qantas cabin design is in addition to the comfort factors that Boeing built in to the Dreamliner – improved air quality, lower cabin noise and technology to reduce turbulence.Mr Joyce said the direct route is expected to appeal to travellers on the East Coast as well as West Australians, helping to deliver a tourism boost.“A direct flight makes travelling to Australia a much more attractive proposition to millions of people. We expect many travellers from Europe will start their time in Australia with a visit to Perth before going on to see other parts of the country.Qantas Airways Limited ABN 16 009 661 901 Further information and media releases can be found at the Qantas website: qantasnewsroom.com.au“Our modelling shows that people from the East Coast as well as South Australia would fly domestically to Perth to connect to our non-stop London service. Some will take the opportunity to break their journey, whether it’s for business meetings in Perth, to holiday or to visit family.”The new flight will operate through Qantas’ existing domestic terminals (T3/4), which will be upgraded to accommodate international flights. The airline’s current international services from Perth (to Singapore and to Auckland) will also move to this terminal, helping to simplify the journey for thousands of people every year. Qantas will move its operations to an expanded Terminal 1 at Perth Airport by 2025, pending a commercial agreement.“We’ll be looking at the timing of our domestic flights through Perth to offer the best connections we can to our international flights, particularly given they will all be under the one roof,” added Mr Joyce.“I’d like to acknowledge the support of the West Australian Government and Perth Airport in helping make this service a reality.”Seats on the Perth-London flights will go on sale in April 2017 for the first services in March 2018. The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners used on the route will carry 236 passengers across Business, Premium Economy and Economy cabins.Fast Facts Perth to LondonThe 14,498km flight will take approximately 17 hours (slightly more or less depending on winds)When it launches, is expected to be the third-longest passenger flight in the worldLongest flight on the Qantas network, followed by our non-stop A380 Sydney-Dallas service (13,730km)Will be the longest Boeing Dreamliner flight in the worldThe first regular passenger service from Australia to Europe adds to Qantas’ list of flying firsts, including: o First passenger jet services across the Pacific in 1959 with a B707. o First (and only) non-stop passenger flight from London to Sydney in 1989 with a B747-400. o First to operate the world’s largest passenger aircraft (A380) on the world’s longest route (Sydney-Dallas) in 2014Perth was also used as a stopover on flights to London between the 1940s and 1960sIn 2015, Qantas operated a one-off B747-400 charter flight from Perth to Istanbul to take Australians to the Centenary of Anzac at Gallipoli – the last time the national carrier flew from Australia to Europe non-stop.

Americans kitchen table conversations after the release of a recording of Donald Trump bragging about groping women one voice was noticeably silent: Hillary Clinton In the hours after the video broke pundits yelled the word "p-ssy" on television A rock-ribbed Republican governor and GOP members of Congress from Utah West Virginia and Alabama called on Trump to step down as the nominee along with some 30 other stalwart party lawmakers who said voters should not support the nominee Melania Trump was remorseful: her husband’s words she said in a statement “are unacceptable and offensive to me” Trumps own running mate threw his hands up "I do not condone his remarks and cannot defend them" said Republican Gov Mike Pence "We pray for his family" But Clinton who has for months lambasted Trump for his comments about women did not attack him this time The Democratic nominee is waiting until Sundays debate high-profile before she responds to Trumps video according to a Clinton campaign official where a dramatic exchange between Clinton and Trump could be the pivotal moment of the election Aides believe that Clinton will be able to use the force of a public condemnation to better effect in front of an audience of millions Her campaign meanwhile with its legions of staff and allies mostly observed the fray from the sidelines At the campaign’s Brooklyn headquarters staffers sat glued to their computer and television screens watching Republicans trip over themselves to defend Trump Some aides took to Twitter as the Republican defections came in but at first there was little internal guidance as Trump’s slim chances to win the White House seemed to dissolve in slow motion Clinton’s allies were told on Saturday about the campaigns plans to wait until the debate to raise the issue according to the Clinton official They were given a green light to react but they were told there was no need to press the issue on network television while Republicans are still chaotically coming to grips with their nominees latest lewd comments Campaign aides tweeted scattered remarks From the candidate’s official Twitter account staff tweeted the original Washington Post story on the video with words of outrage: "This is horrific We cannot allow this man to become president" In another tweet from the campaign Clinton called on women to “stop Trump” Others tweeted out links asking people to volunteer But the campaign which often to reacts to events on a hair trigger sent out no message on the debacle which seemed it could deliver a death knell to Trump’s campaign Few Clinton surrogates were on television networks to attack Trump Instead Clinton’s campaign left it to Republicans to hang themselves on Trumps words while they watched it all burn from afar Aides said they saw no need to interfere as Republicans like Sen John McCain retracted their endorsements of Trump How exactly Clinton herself would address Trump’s incendiary remarks on Sunday night’s debate remained unclear But more than 24 hours after the election-shaking video broke the candidate herself had said nothing Priorities USA Action the primary super PAC supporting Clinton began working on ad content behind the scenes but did not immediately jump into the fray The spokesman for the group Justin Barasky said the group did not plan to significantly change its message after the release of the video In the 2005 video first released by the Washington Post Trump is heard bragging about making sexual attempts on married women The Republican nominee who had already been married to his current wife Melania for less than a year spoke lewdly of a woman he sought to sleep with “I did try to f-ck her” he said Trump also said in the video that “when you’re a star” “you can do anything” to women “Grab ’em by the p-ssy You can do anything” he said It was the kind of video that brings presidential campaigns crashing to the ground and Trump for all his previous vulgar and mean-spirited comments targeting Mexicans Muslims and women finally seemed to cross a bridge too far Republican rapidly defected and Clinton aides gingerly stepped back Throughout the presidential campaign Democrats have been divided over whether to paint Trump as an anomaly or to strap the Republican Party to his outbursts The Democratic National Committee has been more insistent on blaming the GOP for Trump’s rise tying Republicans to Trump’s candidacy The Clinton campaign meanwhile has aggressively sought endorsements from Republicans and tended to denounce Trump without so clearly connecting his failures to the party On Friday night shortly after the video was published the DNC released a statement aimed at bringing Republicans down with Trump “Donald Trump’s offensive degrading and disgusting comments about women revealed today are beyond the pale and don’t bear repeating” said interim DNC chair Donna Brazile “The only remaining question is whether Republicans will continue to stand by him and call him a role model for our children” There was no doubt among Democrats that Trump would be on the ballot in November On Saturday Marc Elias the general counsel for the Clinton campaign assured Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook on Saturday that there was no way for Trump to be removed the official said despite grumblings from Republicans that he should step down Speaker Paul Ryan was scheduled to
