  • Republican Senator Mitt Romney, a sometime critic of Trump, said there was a growing likelihood that at least four Republican senators would vote to call for Bolton to testify in the trial, which would give Democrats the votes necessary to summon the former national security adviser.

    Trump's team has previously said he was well within his constitutional authority to press Zelenskiy to investigate the Bidens as part of what he says was an anti-corruption drive. The Bidens deny wrongdoing.

    Citing Bolton's unpublished manuscript, The Times wrote that Trump told Bolton he wanted to keep frozen $391 million in aid to Ukraine until Kiev officials helped with a probe into his Democratic rival Joe Biden. Trump was impeached last month for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

    The meetings come just a month before Netanyahu and Gantz are set to face off in national elections for the third time in less than a year and amid much speculation over whether the plan has any chance for success since the Palestinians haven't been consulted and have preemptively rejected any proposal from a White House it considers biased toward Israel.

    Soros has used his annual Davos speech as a platform to criticise the social media giant in the past. In 2018, he compared Facebook to a gambling company that fosters addiction among users, and last year reiterated the need to regulate technology firms. "Facebook basically has only one guiding principle: maximise your profits irrespective of what harm it may do to the world," Soros said on Thursday.

    House impeachment managers launched their case for removing Donald Trump from office by depicting him as a president who is vindictive, untruthful, unbound by the law and above all, willing to abuse his power at the expense of US national security.

    In a statement released here during the WEF 2020 week, he also questioned success of China's ambitious Belt and Road Initiative, saying it has required giving large loans, some of which will never be repaid.

    India's reiteration on the Kashmir issue came after Trump while addressing the media with Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan in Davos on Tuesday said that the US was watching the developments relating to Kashmir "very closely" and repeated his offer to "help" resolve the dispute. It was Trump's fourth offer to help in resolving the Kashmir issue since withdrawal of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir.

    Asked whether Trump agreed with him, Khan said the US President did not say anything but he probably understood what he meant. "Afghanistan is yet to be resolved and Iran would be much bigger (if war starts)," Khan said. Khan met Trump on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum (WEF) summit.

    President Donald Trump has also called for negative interest rates, and said the US is missing an opportunity.

    "This is one of the great companies of the world, let's say as of a year ago, and then all of a sudden things happen," Trump said in an interview on CNBC from the Davos economic forum in Switzerland.
