Number two former vice president Joseph Biden has changed his mind reversing his long held position on a controversial abortion issue to go democratic donors last night that he can no longer support a measure that banned federal funding for most abortions but intends. He's changing his position on the so called the Hyde amendment because it makes access to abortions. More difficult for women who can afford them. For many years of US senator. I have I've supported the Hyde amendment like many many others have. Because there was sufficient. Monies and circumstances. Where women were able to exercise that right it was not under attack as it was. As it is now I've been working through the final details of my health care plan like others in this race. And I've been struggling with the problems that hide now presents. Biden's reversal follows two days of intense criticism from his democratic primary rivals last night. He said he makes no apologies for his last position or his new one. On to number three investigators at West Point are trying to determine the cause of a deadly training accident one cadet was killed when a truck like this one flipped over rough terrain.

That would require asylum seekers seek refuge in the first country they and her. President from diet Fox News overnight. They shouldn't be able to walk through Mexico if you look at that's actually an invasion without the but many Republican lawmakers disagree with the terror threats. Because of how would hit American consumers and businesses. Combined with the new Chinese tariffs economists estimate it could mean 190 billion dollars a year in new taxes. Passed on to consumers they should be saying we're with the president and Mexico would fold like an umbrella. The fight comes as new reports from the agency's top watch dot finds.
