Trump dodges blame over healthcare as he meets with Afghanistan veterans

President expresses surprise at bill’s failure but focuses attacks on ‘obstructionist’ Democrats, pledging ‘something good’ will happen eventually

Donald Trump had a lunch date with uniformed veterans of the Afghanistan war on Tuesday “to find out why we’ve been there 17 years”. On a humid summer day in Washington DC, they sat in the Roosevelt Room, each with a glass of iced tea adorned with lemon wedges, as reporters were ushered in.

Less than 24 hours earlier, the president had been in buoyant form as he toured a pop-up White House exhibition of Made in America products – trying on a cowboy hat, swinging a baseball bat and clambering into the cab of a gleaming fire truck.

Office Mobile apps receive Fluent Design treatment on Windows 10 PC

If you’re a Windows Insider running the latest Insider Preview builds, we’ve got some good news for you. Microsoft is now rolling out an update to its Office Mobile apps that add Fluent Design elements to Word, PowerPoint and Excel! The apps now feature the reveal highlight effect and Acrylic blur in some areas.

The addition of Fluent Design within the Office Mobile apps is certainly a welcome addition, as it adds a hint of polish to what are already great productivity apps for lightweight editing. You can find the reveal effect in the header area of the apps, as well as in the recent documents list, and you can find Acrylic in the same places too.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear the OneNote app has any of these new Fluent Design elements. But now that Office Mobile Word, PowerPoint and Excel have it, we imagine OneNote will quickly catch up. As of right now, the Fluent Design updates for Office Mobile are available in the Fast ring for Insiders.

Ed Sheeran Gets MASSIVE Praise From Game Of Thrones Director Amid Backlash! Quote Of The Day!

“He was lovely to work with. He was lovely on the show. I think he fit right into that world. He’s so down to Earth and really, really lovely. If you didn’t know that he makes hit records, you would have no idea from meeting him. He could not be more kind. He just wanted to do a good job. He was very cute. The only thing he asked is if he could change the key of the song he was singing, and he asked it very tentatively. (Laughs.) He wanted to do a good job and was very concerned about that. He hung out with everybody on set all day, with all of the other guys sitting around the campfire. He was a team player. I swear to god, he was really just like one of the guys. He was lovely.”
