Graham: Trump can’t just tweet about Iran

© Provided by The Hill Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday said President Trump needs to do more than tweet about the ongoing protests in Iran. “It’s not enough to watch. President Trump is tweeting very sympathetically to the Iranian people. But you just can’t tweet here. You have to lay out a plan,” Graham said on CBS’s “Face The Nation.” Graham’s comments come as protesters have taken to the streets for each of the last four days throughout Iran to protest economic hardships and alleged government corruption. Graham said on Sunday that he approved of Trump tweeting support for Iranian protesters. “The Iranian people are not our enemy,” Graham said. “The ayatollah is the enemy of the world.” Graham added that he h...

9:00 AM ET As the calendar flips to 2018, here are New Year’s resolutions for five NBA stars that could propel their teams to even greater heights: Could more movement off the ball unlock an even better James Harden? Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports 2018 resolution: More movement off the ball Yes, James Harden leads the league in scoring by a healthy margin.

Looking back at New Year’s Eve in Times Square

1926. (Bettmann Archive/Getty Images) 1930. (Associated Press) “Auld Lang Syne.” New calendars. Champagne. Fireworks. The ball drop. The Times Square ball drop on New Year’s Eve has become synonymous with the holiday itself. Since 1907, there have been only two Januaries — 1942 and 1943 — that did not begin with the iconic ball’s descent at One Times Square. In those years, people still gathered in Times Square, but a moment of silence for the troops fighting in World War II welcomed the new year instead of the typical cheers. The Times Square ball drop was started by Adoph Ochs, who owned the New York Times, but the tradition can be traced back to England’s “time balls,” which were installed in prominent locations to help passing ships keep their chronometers synchronized. From iron and w...
