Last Updated Nov 9, 2016 3:41 PM EST As Donald Trump pulled off a stunning upset to win the U.S. presidential election early Wednesday, much of the world reacted with shock, but official messages of congratulations quickly started pouring in from foreign governments. CBS News’ Pamela Falk says Trump’s stated positions promise a new international mode of repeal and replace, including reforming U.S. relations with China and designating the communist nation a currency manipulator, reversing the international climate agreement, unwinding Obama administration immigration policies and increasing pressure on NATO allies.“We will get along with all nations willing to get along with us,” Trump said in the early hours of Wednesday morning. “I promise you, I will not let you down.” But Falk notes the 45th U.S. president faces a host of intractable problems, from violent extremism and nuclear threats to cybersecurity and foreign entanglements in Syria and … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo World reaction to Donald Trump’s election win
VIENNA -- In the wake of the Brexit vote in the United Kingdom and Donald Trump’s victory in the United States, far-right parties across Europe are eyeing other countries on the map where their newly energized movement could win at the ballot box. Austria, which holds its presidential election Sunday, is among the first to test the staying power of right-wing populism in Europe: if polls here are right, the country is poised to elect Europe’s first far-right head of state since World War II. The results could have far-reaching implications for politics beyond Austria’s borders – and signal further far-right victories in a half-dozen countries with elections slated for 2017. Norbert Hofer, the 45-year-old candidate for the far-right Austrian Freedom Party, holds a narrow but consistent lead in the polls over Green Party candidate Alexander Van der Bellen heading into the final stretch. Hofer has much in common with other far-right leaders across … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Energized by Donald Trump’s election, Austria’s far-right party hopes for win
If this week was a canary in the coal mine for Wisconsin Republicans, they better learn bird CPR pretty quick.Before Tuesday night, the state's 10th Senate District had been represented by Republican Sheila Harsdorf for 17 years, with Harsdorf winning it over her Democratic challenger by 26 percentage points in 2016. (Full disclosure: I was a legislative aide for Harsdorf between 2001 and 2007.)Thus, when Harsdorf left her seat, it seemed as if Republicans had little to worry about; even though the incumbent was popular and outperformed the western Wisconsin district's GOP baseline, the district still enjoyed about an eight-point Republican advantage. In 2016, Donald Trump won the district by double-digits.But when the results came in, Democrat Patty Schachtner had won the district by 10 percentage points over Republican Adam Jarchow, a state representative from Balsam Lake. It was a result that had to shock even the most pro-Democratic observers.More important than the single seat … [Read more...] about Donald Trump’s toxic impact on Wisconsin Republicans has the GOP asking: Donald Who?
Examining the White House physician’s briefing on President Trump’s physical, I was alarmed – not about the president’s health, but the doctor’s.Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson was so effusive in extolling the totally amazing, surpassingly marvelous, superbly stupendous and extremely awesome health of the president that the doctor sounded almost Trumpian. “The president’s overall health is excellent,” he said, repeating “excellent” eight times: “Hands down, there’s no question that he is in the excellent range. … I put out in the statement that the president’s health is excellent, because his overall health is excellent. … Overall, he has very, very good health. Excellent health.”And just how excellent is His Excellency’s excellent health, doctor? “Incredible cardiac fitness,” was Dr. Jackson’s professional opinion. “He has incredible genes. … He has incredibly … [Read more...] about Opinion: Is Donald Trump’s doctor OK?
My daily travels brought me by my proud alma mater last week. As I crept along the narrow college streets lulled into complacency by a boring history podcast, a tiny car swerved in front of me, barely missing my left fender.Usually, when a driver pulls this type of move, I call him a wide variety of colorful terms.This time, however, I immediately knew he was a thoughtful, upstanding activist. He showcased his profound civic engagement in the form of a bumper sticker: HE’S NOT MY PRESIDENT. More: Don't diagnose our president. Diagnose our enemies instead. More: Stop trying to diagnose our 'very stable genius' president. He might be right. Thank you, citizen. Swerve on.Say it with me: Trump is presidentWe’ve all seen similar messages over the past year, plastered on cars, T-shirts and social media bios. #RESIST. FAKE PRESIDENT. STILL WITH HER. Through these slogans, Trump’s detractors denounce Black November and attempt to convince … [Read more...] about Donald Trump is your president, whether you like it or not

President Trump should lose some weight, exercise more and scale back on his beloved Big Macs, but his perfect score on a cognitive test suggests there’s “no reason whatsoever” to doubt his mental fitness, his doctor said. “All clinical data indicates that the President is currently very healthy and that he will remain so for the duration of his Presidency,” Navy Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson, the physician to the president, wrote in a memo. Trump achieved 30 out of 30 on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, a 10-minute test ranging from identifying illustrations of animals to naming in one minute as many words as possible that begin with the letter F. Though his doctor said there was no need for such an exam, Trump requested one in hopes of putting to rest questions about his mental fitness to be in office, Jackson said. He added Trump performed “exceedingly well” and that the president is “very sharp” and “very articulate when … [Read more...] about Donald Trump given high marks on exam

President Donald Trump’s doctor has recommend that he lose some weight, but said that the president is in excellent physical and mental health otherwise. Speaking in the White House briefing room Tuesday afternoon, White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson described the results of four hours of physical and mental health testing on Friday. “The president’s overall health is excellent,” he said, adding “there’s no indication whatsoever that he has any cognitive issue.” Jackson, who served presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama as well, said he recommended that Trump lose 10 to 15 pounds over the next year through alterations in diet and exercise. Trump currently weighs 239 pounds, which at 6-foot-3 puts him just under the technical definition of obese under the body mass index, or BMI. “He would benefit from a diet that is lower in fat and carbohydrates and a routine exercise regimen,” Jackson said, but acknowledged that Trump is … [Read more...] about Donald Trump Is in Good Physical and Mental Health, White House Doctor Says
