President Donald Trump

 

President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address didn’t come without some dramatic moments on Tuesday night.

For starters, Trump snubbed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi when she tried to shake his hand after introducing him. Then there was the eruption of Republicans chanting “four more years” during the speech. Meanwhile, dozens of Democrats wore white to protest the president and as a means to honor the 100th anniversary of the women’s suffrage movement.

Trump spoke about the “blue-collar boom” and a “great American comeback” throughout his 78-minute speech while also outlining his plans for national security, the economy, health care and the overall future of the country. Many of his remarks garnered a wave of applause from Republicans. Pelosi, meanwhile, appeared unmoved by the president’s words.

Wuhan Hospital Announces Death Of Whistleblower Doctor After Confusion In State Media

 

Beijing (CNN)Li Wenliang, the Chinese whistleblower doctor who warned the public of a potential “SARS-like” disease in December 2019, has died, according to Wuhan Central Hospital. The confirmation follows a series of conflicting statements about his condition from the hospital and Chinese state media outlets.

Li died of the novel coronavirus in Wuhan in the early hours of Friday morning (local time).
“Our hospital’s ophthalmologist Li Wenliang was unfortunately infected with coronavirus during his work in the fight against the coronavirus epidemic,” the latest hospital statement read.
“He died at 2:58 am on Feb 7 after attempts to resuscitate were unsuccessful.”
Earlier on Thursday night, several state media outlets had reported Li’s death, following which Chinese social media erupted in profound grief and anger.
Hours of confusion followed, with Wuhan Central Hospital releasing a statement saying Li was still alive and in critical condition, adding that they were “making attempts to resuscitate him.”

Utah Republicans Say Backlash Against Romney Won’t Last

 

House Republicans from Utah today downplayed the impact that GOP Sen. Mitt Romney’s vote in the impeachment trial would have on his standing within the state.

“We shouldn’t kick someone out who disagrees with us — even as important as this,” said Rep. Chris Stewart, a Utah Republican. “We want to embrace people.”

Asked about the impact Romney’s vote could have on his reelection hopes in Utah, Stewart said “that’s four years from now.”

“It’s an important vote, it’s a vote i think people will remember,” Stewart said. “But I don’t think people are going to be talking about his vote for impeachment four years from now. … I don’t think it’s the only thing they’re going to be considering at that point. I don’t think it’s going to be the first thing they’ll consider.”

Stewart added: “There’s a lot of anger there but I think this too shall pass.”

Rep. John Curtis of Utah concurred with that assessment.
