Australia’s Brutal Treatment of Migrants

nytimes.com — Some European officials may be tempted to adopt the hard-line approach Australia has used to stem a similar tide of migrants. That would be unconscionable.

EXCLUSIVE: Trump will sign GOP loyalty pledge

politico.com — A close associate tells POLITICO that Donald Trump plans to sign a loyalty pledge Thursday that would bind him to endorse the Republican nominee, and would preclude a third-party run. Trump made the stunning decision, which he has long resisted, to avoid complications in getting listed on primary ballots, and to take away an attack line in the next debate, the associate said.

Does Donald Trump cheat at golf? A Washington Post investigation.

washingtonpost.com — One morning in the mid-1990s, Mark Mulvoy was on the sixth hole of Long Island's Garden City Golf Club with Donald Trump when the skies opened, and they ducked for cover under a nearby awning.
