Trump Drops 12 percentage Points in One Poll

Trump 43% on November 22nd
Trump 31% five days later on November 27th


U.S. presidential hopeful Donald Trump's support among Republicans has dropped 12 points in less than a week, marking the real estate mogul's biggest decline since he vaulted to the top of the field in July, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.

Trump was the favorite of 31 percent of Republicans in a rolling poll in the five days ended on Nov. 27. That was down from a peak of 43 percent registered on Nov. 22.

The dip follows criticism of Trump for comments he made in the aftermath of the Nov. 13 Paris attacks that killed 130 people and wounded hundreds more.

Following the attacks, Trump told an NBC News reporter that he would support requiring all Muslims within the United States to be registered to a special database, which his critics have likened to the mandatory registration of Jews in Nazi Germany.

Trump has also been criticized for flailing his arms and distorting his speech as he mocked a New York Times reporter, Serge Kovaleski, who is disabled.


Turkish President Erdogan Warns Russia Not to ‘Play with Fire’


Erodogan blasts Russia for their mistreatment of Turkish citizens inside Russia following the downing of the plane over their airspace.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan warned Moscow not to "play with fire" on Friday, citing reports Turkish businessmen had been detained in Russia, while Moscow responded with tighter visa regulations.

Turkey, which has long sought Assad's ouster, has extensive trade ties with Moscow, which could come under strain. Erdogan condemned reports that some Turkish businessmen had been detained for visa irregularities while attending a trade fair in Russia.

"It is playing with fire to go as far as mistreating our citizens who have gone to Russia," Erdogan told supporters during a speech in Bayburt, in northeast Turkey. "We really attach a lot of importance to our relations with Russia... We don't want these relations to suffer harm in any way."

He said he may speak with Russian President Vladimir Putin at a climate summit in Paris next week. Putin has so far refused to contact Erdogan because Ankara does not want to apologize for the downing of the jet, a Putin aide said.


Ben Carson Making Surprise Trip to Jordan to Tour Refugee Camp

ABC News reported
Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson was making a surprise trip to Jordan to visit a camp with Syrian and Iraqi refugees, a campaign official said.

The visit, which was announced on Thanksgiving, marks the first time one of the 2016 candidates has visited such a camp since the refugee crisis began this year.

Carson, who left last night for the trip and will stay until Sunday, posted a Thanksgiving message on his official Twitter account Thursday and made no mention of his trip to Jordan.

The trip comes after a recent spate of criticisms for Carson's alleged lack of foreign policy experience.

He also came under fire after comparing the need for screenings of refugees to protecting a child from a rabid dog.
