British Prime Minister Theresa May promised Tuesday to give lawmakers a vote on whether to hold a second Brexit referendum as part of a last-gasp push to get her deal over the line. The embattled British leader dangled a series of sweeteners that she hopes can resolve the Brexit crisis three years after the country first voted to leave the European Union after 46 years. "The government will therefore include in the Withdrawal Agreement Bill at introduction a requirement to vote on whether to hold a second referendum," she said.

U.S. and European chipmakers fell sharply on Monday amid worries the Huawei Technologies suppliers may suspend shipments to the Chinese firm due to a U.S. crackdown. The selling came after Nikkei Asian Review reported that Infineon had halted shipments to Huawei after Washington added the world's No. 2 smartphone maker to a trade blacklist last week, imposing restrictions that will make it difficult to do business with U.S. companies. Reuters reported that Alphabet Inc's Google had suspended some business with Huawei and Lumentum Holdings Inc, seen as a major supplier of Apple Inc's face ID technology, said it had discontinued all shipments to Huawei.
Hundreds of millions of smartphone users will be affected by Google's decision to sever its Android operating system ties with Chinese handset maker Huawei. The decision, in the midst of a US trade war with China, means that Huawei users will start losing access to Google's proprietary services such as Gmail and Maps, and be shut out of future upgrades to Android on their phones. The move by the California internet giant on the software front was compounded by news that US chipmakers have stopped supplying Huawei, hitting the hardware of its phones.
Former Vice President Joe Biden, the current Democratic presidential front runner, has had plenty of opportunities to prepare himself for the last campaign of his political life. He has already been involved in four presidential elections. Biden ran twice for president himself, in 1988 and 2008, and twice as the vice presidential nominee alongside President Barack Obama, in 2008 and 2012. Biden had months to ready himself to respond to questions about his past, and Donald Trump's taunts sure to come his way, once he officially announced his candidacy. He had ample time to assemble a war room, recruiting the likes of David Axelrod and David Gergen to respond effectively within a news cycle...
In light of new abortion legislation, we asked 8 women to tell us if they still feel at home in their home states
The issue of abortion has been thrust into the national dialogue in recent weeks after a series of states controlled by Republicans began passing legislation to enact hard line bans. Warren has distinguished herself in the field as the candidate with the most prolific series of policy proposals on a myriad of topics. Warren said Congress should enact laws that reinforce the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion.

The United States has publicly rebuked a senior British general who challenged claims that Iranian-backed groups are preparing to mount attacks against Western assets in the Middle East. The extraordinary move came after Major General Chris Ghika, the deputy commander of Operation Inherent Resolve, the US-led coalition against Islamic State, said that there was no increased threat from pro-Iranian groups in Iraq and Syria. In recent days Donald Trump's administration has said that Iran is preparing its allied and proxy forces to mount attacks on US assets across the Middle East, and has sent an aircraft carrier strike group, a squadron of B-52 bombers, and a battery of patriot missiles...
Ever since Donald Trump came down that Trump Tower escalator to announce his candidacy for president, we've heard a great deal about the abuse of norms -- constitutional norms, democratic norms, norms of decency, all kinds of norms. For Trump supporters, the president's frequent violations of norms, while occasionally regrettable, were for the most part welcome because they proved he was willing to fight to win. This was necessary, the theory went, because the Left didn't care about norms anymore; they only cared about winning.But this view -- that the other side plays dirty so we must too -- is hardly new to American politics. The sentiment is practically baked into politics. But the...
At least four people were killed and two others are missing when the two "float planes" crashed into each other in midair. ABC News' Janai Norman reports.
Pope Francis on Thursday passed a landmark new measure to oblige those who know about sex abuse in the Catholic Church to report it to their superiors, in a move which could bring countless new cases to light. Every diocese in the world will now be obliged to have a system for the reporting of abuse, under a new law published by the Vatican following a global clerical paedophilia scandal. It is time to learn from the "bitter lessons of the past", Francis said in the text of the legal decree, which comes into effect on June 1.
The Church of England "put its own reputation above the needs of victims" of sexual abuse by clergy, a damning report found Thursday. Its response was marked by "secrecy, prevarication and avoidance of reporting alleged crimes", an inquiry into abuse in the diocese of Chichester found. The report also criticised Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, for his "misguided" support along with others of Bishop Peter Ball, a prolific sex offender.
BEIJING (AP) - A Chinese court held an appeal hearing Thursday for a Canadian who was sentenced to death for drug smuggling in a case that has deepened a diplomatic rift between the two countries.
HANOVER, N.H. (AP) - Hillary Clinton said Wednesday that the struggles between President Donald Trump's administration and the U.S. House will show "whether it's the rule of law or the rule of Trump" that the courts and Republicans obey.
If we forget about the utter disaster that was the Galaxy Fold, Samsung over the past few years has done an impressive job of churning out premium smartphones that can stand toe-to-toe with the iPhone in many ways. Sure, the face unlock and fingerprint sensor features on Samsung's S10 line is far less secure than what Apple offers with Face ID, but the reality is that it's getting harder and harder to differentiate the iPhone from premium Android models.One of the more interesting areas where handset manufacturers are attempting to differentiate themselves involves mobile photography. While Apple for a period of a few years routinely set new standards of excellence for camera quality with...
'Do you think this is impeachable?" Chuck Todd, host of Meet the Press, asked Representative Jerrold Nadler about the findings in the report by special counsel Robert Mueller.The congressman from New York took a dramatic pause before replying, "Yeah, I do. I do think this, if proven, if proven . . . some of this would be impeachable, yes. Obstruction of justice, if proven, would be impeachable."Within NBC's studio and outside it, this was greeted as news. Maybe in one sense, it was. Nadler chairs the House Judiciary Committee, where impeachment proceedings originate. Like the Democratic leadership generally, he has been very circumspect on the issue. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi remains...
