Trump tweets about Democrats, Georgia election

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is attacking Democrats and promoting the Republican running in this week's House runoff election in Georgia.

In a tweet Monday, Trump said that Democrats "want to stop tax cuts, good healthcare and Border Security." He also said "their ObamaCare is dead."

Trump concluded: "Vote now for Karen H," an apparent reference to Karen Handel, the Republican running in a special congressional election in Georgia. The election in the state's 6th Congressional District is set for Tuesday.

Handel faces Democrat Jon Ossoff in a nationally watched matchup that Democrats want to turn into a referendum on Trump.

Trump also tweeted Monday about a member of his outside legal team appearing on "Fox and Friends." But that message was later taken down.

    UK plan to register EU citizens would be illegal, say MEPs

    Demonstrators hold banners during a protest to Lobby MPs to guarantee the rights of EU citizens living in the UK. The home secretary, Amber Rudd, has been warned by a cross-party group of MEPs that her plans to force EU nationals to add their names to a register in the transition period immediately after Brexit would be illegal and unacceptable to the European parliament. The MEPs from across Europe have written to Rudd following her suggestions to the home affairs committee that she would expect EU nationals to have to register with the authorities in the period immediately after Britain left the EU.

    EU calls report on May-Juncker talks a smear

    The European Commission said a newspaper report that Jean-Claude Juncker had disparaged Theresa May's "despondent" demeanour after a dinner last week was a deliberate smear intended to disrupt Brexit negotiations. It was the second time in six months that a correspondent for Germany's Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung who is respected for his access to Juncker's team has published an account of the EU chief executive's reactions after a dinner meeting with the British prime minister on Britain's EU withdrawal. "Nothing is true in all of this," President Juncker told the BBC, adding that May had been "in good shape" and "not tired".

    Britain backs GSK's gene therapy for 'bubble boy' syndrome

    Gene therapy is designed to deliver a one-off cure for the patient and drugmakers are typically asking a hefty price that is comparable to the combined costs of alternative life-long treatment. Britain's National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) said in draft guidance published on Friday that Strimvelis gene therapy used against adenosine deaminase deficiency, or ADA-SCID, improves overall survival compared with standard stem cell transplant therapy.

    UK households' morale and rate hike expectations rise - IHS Markit

    British households' financial worries have eased to their lowest since June, despite the prospect of higher Bank of England interest rates and a reliance on borrowing to make up for falling employment income, a survey showed on Monday. The IHS Markit Household Finance Index rose to 43.8 in October from 42.8 in September, its highest since June, and marking a recovery from a third quarter which was the weakest since 2014. Markit said the survey's improvement this month reflected households' increased optimism about the economic outlook for the next year, as well as an increased willingness to spend on cars, holidays and household large goods.

    Direct Catalonia crisis key risk to Spain rating - S&P

    S&P Global said on Wednesday it had no specific view on whether or not Spain reinstates direct rule over Catalonia, but is instead waiting to see whether the crisis does any sustained damage to a robust economic recovery. S&P has a "positive outlook" on its BBB+ Spanish sovereign rating, but the strains over Catalonia's bid for independence have cast doubt over the near-term upgrade prospects. Catalonia's regional leaders face a deadline on Thursday on whether or not to stick to, or abandon, an independence declaration made last week which Madrid has rejected as illegal.
