    President Trump on Monday called Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum (D) a "thief" as he trumpeted support for Republican Ron DeSantis (R).

    SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. - Cows helped Sanford officers corral a suspect who was on the 'moove' after crashing a stolen car, officials said. The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office’s helicopter captured the incident on video Sunday night as police were following the vehicle. And that’s when the cows came home. The video then shows one of the suspects running through a cow pasture as the animals chased and surrounded one of the suspects, who was eventually captured by police.

Carla Campos, manager of the cafe, said Thursday that Maldonado had been a regular customer and then all of sudden stopped coming into the store on Riverside Station Boulevard. After watching the surveillance video from that day, Campos knows why, she said. While the theft occurred...

    Now, let me say a few things about the current hysteria in the MSM surrounding the Trump-Putin summit. The question that was asked to the POTUS was inappropriate. He is standing there, with Putin, the leader of the world’s second military super-power, and the media is playing games constantly, to put him on the spot. Did Russia interfere with the election? Do you believe our intel-agencies or do you believe Putin? Now, we’ve been told day in and day out that our intelligence agencies cannot be trusted; that they lied to get us into the war with Iraq. Right? Goes...

    Since last fall, police in several states have been looking for a man they believe is using a laminated $20 bill attached to some fishing line to steal thousands of dollars from self-serve car washes. There’s very little information about what exactly happened in this dashcam video, but it appears… The latest on the multi-state car wash bandit came Monday from the Indianapolis Star, which said the man was caught on surveillance cameras at car washes in the city of Moorseville on Aug. 4 and Jan. 26. “We’ve only really had two dealings with him, but he’s a large pain,”...

    Chinese authorities are livid over the theft of a thumb from a 2,000-year-old terracotta warrior on loan to a US museum, calling for the perpetrator to be "severely" punished. The ancient statue is valued at $4.5 million and considered a "priceless part of China's cultural heritage." It was on display at Philadelphia's Franklin Institute when the vandalism took place. "We call on the United States to severely punish those who have done [this]," Shaanxi Provincial Cultural Relic Exchange Center's director told the Beijing Youth Daily, a state-run Chinese newspaper. The warrior statues date back to 209 B.C., when the...

    President Trump complained Sunday that the father of one of the three UCLA basketball players who were arrested in China for shoplifting had played down his role in winning their release, and that he therefore should not have interceded with China’s president. “I should have left them in jail!” the president tweeted. Trump’s tweet drew a quick backlash on social media. Many expressed incredulity that a sitting U.S. president would publicly regret having come to the aid of American citizens being held by an authoritarian government. Among Trump’s sharper critics was Rep. Adam Schiff, (D-Burbank) who tweeted back, “How can...
