Speaker Paul Ryan met with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump at the RNC headquarters in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, signifying what many believe is an attempt to unify the party behind the polarizing presidential candidate.
According to Ryan, the meeting was a “positive step,” but there is still a wide gap between the two on issues ranging from immigration to Medicare and taxes.
The two men issued a joint statement about their meeting:
“While we were honest about our few differences, we recognize that there are also many important areas of common ground. We will be having additional discussions, but remain confident there’s a great opportunity to unify our party and win this fall, and we are totally committed to working together to achieve that goal.”
They also agree about uniting the Republican Party and defeating Hillary Clinton in November if she is selected as the Democratic presidential nominee.
During Friday’s edition of NewsOne Now, Armstrong Williams, business manager to Ben Carson, spoke with Roland Martin about the meeting between Trump and Ryan, and discussed the role Carson is now playing in Trump’s campaign to become the nation’s next president.
Delaware Cops Won’t Face Charges For Shooting Death Of Jeremy McDole
The four Wilmington, Delaware officers connected to the deadly shooting of Jeremy McDole will not face any charges.
Last September, four officers responded to a 911 call about a man with a gun. Cell phone video showed officers telling McDole, who was paralyzed and in a wheelchair, to drop his weapon and raise his hands.
When McDole reached into his pants, officers shot him.
The results of Baltimore, Maryland’s primary election could be turned upside down because of several voting irregularities.
Election officials have ordered election results to be decertified after the state administrator found 80 provisional ballots had never been analyzed.
What makes the election results even more peculiar is the number of ballots cast was higher than the number of people who checked in at polling places.
The discrepancy is especially troubling since there were several close primary elections, which were decided by a small number of votes. State Senator Catherine Pugh defeated former mayor Sheila Dixon by 2,400 votes to become Baltimore’s new mayor, and three city council races were decided by a slim margin of a few hundred votes.
A.R. Bernard, CEO of the Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn, New York, has counseled countless couples and identified the patterns of relationship destruction and success.
According to Bernard, the key to any healthy relationship is knowing exactly what you really want from a partner.
In his new book, Four Things Women Want From A Man, Pastor Bernard addresses women’s wants, but speaks directly to men about what women expect from them as well.
From Amazon.com about Four Things Women Want From A Man:
As men and women have come to Bernard for spiritual counseling and advice, he’s learned patterns of behavior that are repeated time and again. After almost four decades of preaching, teaching, and counseling, he’s seen that while every situation is unique, people’s behaviors and consequences are amazingly consistent. With this in mind, Bernard has developed a simple system for understanding how couples relate to each other.
Bernard joined Roland Martin on NewsOne Now to discuss his highly anticipated book and give a brief overview of the four things he believes women are looking for from their men.
