WASHINGTON - Continuing to draw on his clemency powers, President Donald Trump said Friday that he may soon pardon Muhammad Ali - a sentiment that a lawyer for the late boxer quickly said was appreciated but unnecessary. Ali was convicted in 1967 for refusing to report for induction into the United States military during the Vietnam War. His local draft board rejected his application for conscientious objector classification.
WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump on Friday shared new details about his wife's health, telling reporters that her medical procedure last month lasted nearly four hours and that she is under doctors' orders not to fly. As he prepared to leave the White House, Trump said that first lady Melania Trump wanted to accompany him on his travels to Canada and Singapore but that she was unable to go. "Can't fly for one month, the doctors say," the president said. "She had a big operation. That was close to a four-hour operation."
Flu killed 172 children between October and May, making this season one of the deadliest since federal health authorities began tracking pediatric deaths 14 years ago, according to a new government report. The figure reported Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention exceeds the 171 child deaths reported for 2012-2013, the previous record for a regular season. Only the 2009 swine flu pandemic, which killed 358 children, was worse; that flu was a new strain of the respiratory virus for which people had no previous exposure.

The loaded handgun was within the reach of the toddler, who shot himself, said West Valley Police Department spokeswoman Roxeanne Vainuku.
LAS VEGAS - Four minutes to 2 a.m., down a few buttons on his pink button-down and high on a cocktail of athletic glory, Stella Artois, life itself and God-knows-what-other-liquids, Alex Ovechkin danced on the Hakkasan stage as confetti rained and lasers flashed, a few feet away from both his friend Tiesto and the Stanley Cup, singing along to a pulsing, EDM version of The Outfield's "Your Love." Well, what would you do in his shoes?

On that tragic April afternoon when the Humboldt Broncos's team bus collided with a tractor-trailer, everyone said Xavier LaBelle was among the 16 people killed. The coroner said so. Newspaper articles paying tribute the hockey team said so. And, at an emotional memorial vigil in the small Saskatchewan town of Humboldt soon after the crash, LaBelle was listed among the dead.
If Singapore's reputation for tight security was one reason the real Kim Jong Un agreed to hold his summit with Donald Trump in the city-state, the fake Kim Jong Un now knows why. A Hong Kong-based entertainer who impersonates the North Korean leader said he was detained at Changi Airport after returning to Singapore ahead of the historic summit planned for Tuesday, June 12. The impersonator, who would give only his stage name Howard X, said he was held by immigration authorities for two hours before being released and told to steer clear of summit venues.
