Hillary Clinton calls for US to bomb Syrian air fields

Hillary Clinton is back from hiking in the woods, and she's speaking out on the current Trump Administration, which completed missile strike in Syria on Thursday evening-the same night she spoke at the Women in the World New York Summit. "I am looking at doing interesting things", she said.

She called for an independent, bipartisan investigation into the Kremlin's involvement and said the probe should examine whether there was collusion with the Trump campaign.

During her time onstage, Clinton also talked about the role misogyny played in her loss and career, encouraging young women to seek political office, but advised, "Toughen your skin".

Asked if she would ever run for office again, Clinton said a few times that she is set on finding "interesting things" to do with her life - without outright rejecting the suggestion of another political campaign.

The Russian hackings, she said, appeared to be a "more effective theft than even Watergate (the major USA political scandal that occurred in the 1970s)". "As an American, I'm pretty anxious", the former First Lady added.

Jesse Lingard commits to Manchester United until at least June 2021
He always looked likely to sign an extension at United and manager Jose Mourinho was delighted to see him put pen to paper. But the Manchester United manager has admitted the team is "not strong or good enough to score the goals we should".

"Part of the personal attacks, part of the bullying, part of the name-calling is to crush your spirit, to make you feel inadequate, to make you doubt yourself", she said.

After months sticking close to her house in Chappaqua, N.Y., Clinton has been emerging more in recent weeks to speak in public, but Thursday's appearance was the first interview. "I really believe we should have and still should take out his airfields and prevent him from using to bomb innocent people", she added, referring to Syrian President Assad. "Right?" Clinton said in a jab at Trump.

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton reacted Friday to the United States strike on Syria, saying the United States needs a long-term plan to stop future attacks on civilians by the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

She said the Russian leader is "not very fond" of strong women but was reluctant to personally attack her former opponent, Donald Trump.

Federal budget pledges improvements to trade and transportation
The ratio - a measure of the public debt burden - is now projected to only drop below 2016-17 levels in 2020-21. Morneau ducked and weaved when asked Wednesday about the lack of a road map to return to a balanced budget.

"This aggression has increased Syria's resolve to hit those terrorist agents, to continue to crush them, and to raise the pace of action to that end wherever they are", Assad's office said in a statement.

Clinton believes that "some people, women included, had real problems" with the idea of a woman running the country, and because of that, it desperately harmed her.

Clinton reiterated how she had favored a tougher approach against Assad when she was Secretary of State.

"Will you run for office again?", Kristof probed.
