Trump is hiding something here. Naresh —

Trump is hiding something here.
Naresh —
Every presidential candidate since 1980 has released their history of tax returns.
This kind of disclosure is an opportunity for voters to do their research on whether candidates are paying their fair share (and get a little preview of how a candidate deals with economic management). Among other things, tax returns show us how someone spends their money, whether they’re charitable, and who they choose to associate with in business deals.
Donald Trump has refused over and over again to release his returns. (Never mind that he called for Mitt Romney to do so in 2012!)
He’s hiding something. It’s time to find out what. Join Hillary in calling on Donald Trump to release his tax returns right now:

President Elect Tsai to be sworn on Friday

Democratic Progressive Party Chairwoman Tsai Ing-wen declared victor in the 2016 ROC presidential election, making her the first woman to hold the nation’s highest office in its 104-year history. Kuomintang candidate Eric Chu defeat,  of 3.8 million votes, or around thirty percent of the total vote. It was a significant decrease compared to President Ma Ying-jeou’s re-election campaign in 2012 where he received around 6.89 million votes to beat Tsai.
Tsai to be sworn in as the 14th president of the ROC during a ceremony May 20 in Taipei.
Garnering 6.89 million votes, or 56.12 percent, Tsai defeated Eric Chu of the ruling Kuomintang by 3.08 million votes. James Soong, representing the People First Party, collected 1.58 million votes.
Central Election Commission, the turnout rate was 66.27 percent, the lowest since the commencement of direct ROC presidential elections in 1996.
During a post-election international news conference, the 59-year-old Tsai vowed to strengthen the unity of the country and build a consistent, predictable and sustainable cross-strait relationship.“We will work toward maintaining the status quo for peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait in order to bring the greatest benefits and well-being to the Taiwanese people,” she said.

China and Taiwan military drills

China’s Defense Ministry said recent military drills on its southeastern coast were annual exercises, after Chinese media had suggested they could have been timed ahead of Taiwan’s inauguration of a new president from a pro-independence party, according to media.China and  Taiwan underwent a rapprochement under the outgoing government which was run by China-friendly Nationalists. Two nation ties  not a policy but dynamically change  have strained with the independence-leaning Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and Tsai Ing-wen, who is set to be sworn in as president on Friday.
Chinese state media reports that the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has carried out at least three landing exercises on the country’s southeast coast since the beginning of May.The largest drill was conducted in recent days by a regiment under the PLA’s 31st Group Army, which is based in coastal Fujian province, across the strait from Taiwan.
China’s Defense Ministry said the drills were intended to increase responsiveness to “security threats.”
“These drills are routine arrangements conducted according to annual training plans,” the ministry said in a short statement on its website. “They do not target any specific objective. Relevant individuals should not over-interpret [them].”
The ministry made a similar statement after state-media broadcast footage of live-fire military and landing drills just days after the landslide Taiwan election win in January by Tsai and the DPP.
Taiwan’s defense ministry said the recent footage in Chinese-state media of the drills involved annual PLA exercises and that it had “a grasp” of the situation, but declined to further comment.

Time To Change Focus And Approach

Time To Change Focus And Approach
By Rajiv Kumar on 16 May 2016
It is neither fair nor perhaps useful to evaluate a government at the end of two years of a five-year term. The ruling leadership could well have consciously initiated a spate of schemes and programs for two reasons. First, to galvanize a somnolent administration and shake it out of its lethargy and inertia. Second, the plethora of schemes started in the first two years, would be expected to start yielding positive outcomes in the third and fourth years. Mr Modi, with his indefatigable energy and punishing 20×7 work schedule, has probably set his sights on the economy entering a period of robust recovery by 2018, thereby setting the stage for winning a second term at the hustings in 2019.
Consequently, these have been two very busy years for the Modi government. Some may even say ‘too busy.’ Even if 50% of all schemes achieve 50% of their stated targets, it would, I dare say, represent unprecedented progress over a five year term. For example, if all subsidies could be transferred through the JAM trinity, as alreadydone for kerosene and LPG, it would represent an enormous achievement both in fiscal savings and eliminating leakages. Therefore, there could be a method in this perceived madness of announcing a new scheme virtually each month in the first 18 months of Modi’s prime ministership.
However, the biggest surprise of these last two years has been the inability of the government in adequately communicating its purpose and progress of work to the public. To argue that this is a result of a media conspiracy is of course to loose the plot all together.
But now a mid-term correctionis needed in three critical respects. First, it is time to consolidate and focus on ensuring that all these schemes start yielding results sooner rather than later. NamamiGangewill become a source of derision for the government if the tanneries in Kanpur continue to pour their muck in to the Ganges and right next to Delhi the Sambhawali sugar factory’s molasses continue to pollute the river. Rhetoric needs replacing with results.
Second, the incremental approach adopted by Modi, is admittedly designed to improve governance and extract maximal benefits from existing schemes in a non-intrusive manner.However, incremental changes have not sufficed to excite the investors or create a buzz in the country about a likely economic take-off. The widespread perception is that of business as usual with uncertain outcomes. This needs to be urgently changed. The incremental approach has to be supplemented with bold structural reforms in some critical sectors like agriculture, exports, education, health and transport because here business as usual will simply be thoroughly inadequate. In its second phase, Modi government needs to change its image from one driven by a status quo loving bureaucracy to one that is driven be a bold vision articulated by Modi, supported by bold structural reforms. This alone will make sustained double digit growth a reality.
Third and perhaps most importantly, the Prime Minister must adoptemployment maximization employment as his predominant if not exclusive policy focus. Economic growth with scant additions in jobs will pose the danger of our demographic dividend getting converted to demographic nightmare. India needs to generate one million new jobs every month to simply absorb the entrants to the job market. This is an awesome task.The going so far has not been good and time is not on our side. Prime Minister Modi must set this objective of generating additional jobsas the litmus test of performance of his ministers and senior bureaucracy. The sooner every minister and secretary is asked to present his plans and achievements in terms of creating additional employment the better.
