New Hampshire GOP lawmaker: Owning slaves doesn’t make you a racist
A New Hampshire state lawmaker came under fire this week after he argued that owning black people as slaves does not make someone racist.
USA Today reports that Republican state Rep. Werner Horn recently responded to a Facebook post from a former state House member named Dan Hynes, who argued that President Donald Trump couldn't possibly be the most racist president ever because he never owned slaves.
Iran calls Trump ‘delusional’ and denies the US Navy destroyed its drone
Tehran on Friday denied the United States had downed one of its drones, saying all Iranian aircraft were accounted for and jesting Washington may have accidentally hit their own machine.
The latest incident in the strategic Strait of Hormuz comes amid soaring tensions between the two foes, with Washington already reeling from Iran shooting down one of its drones last month.
US President Donald Trump said an American naval vessel downed an Iranian drone on Thursday that threatened the ship as it was entering the Strait -- a claim vehemently denied by Tehran.
Iran's armed forces dismissed Trump's assertion as "baseless and delusional" while admitting one of their drones was flying near the US ship.

He is convinced that his instincts are infallible and that he speaks for the American electorate when he engages in his patented demagogic bigotry. He believes this is what brought him to the White House and is what will win him a second term.
