Biden: Trump has 'no conception' of national security In an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, the former vice president said Trump's comments to Woodward -- made in a series of 18 interviews for the journalist's upcoming book "Rage" -- were "not a surprise." "You wonder why people in the intelligence community wondered from the very beginning whether you could share data with him, 'cause they don't trust him. They don't trust what he'll say or do," Biden said. "He seems to have no conception of what constitutes national security, no conception of anything other than, what can he do to promote himself?" Biden cited an Axios report that Trump asked whether nuclear bombs could be dropped in the middle of hurricanes to dissipate them before landfall, which Trump has denied. He also pointed to Trump's comment last year that the Continental Army "took over the airports" from the British in the Revolutionary War, more than a century before airplanes existed.

AT&T confirmed those comments to CNN Business. (The phone carrier owns CNN's parent company, WarnerMedia.) The new plan could come as early as "in a year or two," he told Reuters. While advertising-supported phones haven't taken off in the past, despite efforts from Virgin Mobile and Sprint, AT&T(T) said it has the advantage of better ad targeting. Ads will be tailored to customers identified across multiple devices, a strategy that could also help the company sell ads for more money, Stankey said.

We will fulfill our obligation to them. As Leader McConnell has said, President Trump's Supreme Court nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the U.S. Senate."

Mayor Brown told WKBW there was a concern over police officers' personally identifying information being published online in a malicious manner, known as "doxing."

One flyer instructed people to "wear black, cover up" and said photography, videotaping and streamers were not allowed. At a press conference Monday, Mayor Ted Wheeler labeled the behavior of the group of about 300 people "obscene" and "anarchist," and said he would not condone or tolerate criminally destructive acts.

Many in the group were dressed entirely in black, with masks, body armor, and helmets, and were carrying shields, Lovell said.
