Donald Trump’s America First policy is “the height of American way of thinking that it is best if the U.S. is well-off at the expense of the whole world.” US allies and partners are “devoid of principle, narrow-minded and selfish.” The Trump administration is “trying to drive the world into a horrible nuclear disaster.” These are the claims of North Korean diplomats in an open letter to various parliaments of the world. The letter, first published Oct. 20 by the Sydney Morning Herald, was called “unprecedented” by Australia’s top diplomat, Julie Bishop.

More than 66 million Americans will see a 2% increase in their monthly Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits in 2018. But many will see their take-home pay stay about the same as it was in 2017. In dollars and cents, the average retired worker's monthly benefit will rise $27 to $1,404 in 2018 from $1,377 in 2017. But depending on what happens with Medicare premiums, many people could see little or nothing of that 2% COLA, said Elaine Floyd, director of retirement and life planning at Horsesmouth.
