The town of Dinant in Belgium woke up to a big cleanup job after its heaviest floods in decades turned streets into torrential streams that washed away cars and pavement
Cars, pavements washed away as Belgian town hit by worst floods in decades
The fear is that once the athletes and officials leave town, the nation that unwillingly sacrificed much for the cause of global sporting unity might be left the poorer for it, and not just in the tens of billions of dollars it has spent on the Games.
“We were called the king of the championships," said a veteran player on a soccer team that was a tiny West Bank village's pride. "We would celebrate them in the center of town like we do during weddings." Now he said, "the feeling of despair is palpable.”
Very good reviews on last night’s @NBCNews Town Hall in Miami. Thank you!!!
Let me get this straight. A Black man is shot in the back 7 times, while getting in car with his kids. A White youth carrying an AR-15 walks away, after killing people. Same police force, same town, same week. And what is Trump’s response? Send in troops to crush the protesters.
Real change requires protest to highlight a problem, and politics to implement practical solutions and laws. As I mentioned yesterday in our @MBK_Alliance town hall, there are several steps our mayors and elected officials can take right now:
Republicans had a deal until Nancy Pelosi rode into town from her extended vacation. The Democrats want the Virus to win? They are asking for things that have nothing to do with our great workers or companies. They want Open Borders & Green New Deal. Republicans shouldn’t agree!
