“Oh, my God. Oh, my God Jesus,” Desulme said. “I don’t know how much worse it can get.”King had made the plight of the nation’s oppressed black citizens too plain to ignore, and it was a sharp blow to the “Christian conscience” of the white South. “They’ve become tortured souls,” Baptist minister William Finlator of Raleigh, N.C., told TIME then of his colleagues. “King has been working on the guilt conscience of the South. If he can bring us to contrition, that is our hope.”
On both fronts, current and former officials say, the Trump administration is being forced to rethink strategies that had been driven largely by military considerations. Many say the White House is ill equipped to deal with the prospect of a South Korean détente with the North’s Kim Jong-un or the recent eruption of political unrest in Iran.

But the talks between the Koreas have undermined Mr. Trump’s strategy, which is to impose maximum pressure on Pyongyang — including the threat of a military strike — to pressure Mr. Kim into giving up his nuclear arsenal.

3:55 p.m.: This article was updated to include the account of Peerawat Sutthithepa.The British foreign minister, Boris Johnson, said that so far no-one has come up with a better alternative. “We greatly value the JCPOA, the nuclear deal with Iran, we think it is a considerable diplomatic accomplishment,” Johnson said, stressing that “Iran is in compliance with this agreement according to the International Atomic Energy Agency.” German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said Europe wanted to protect the deal “against every possible undermining decision”. Iran and P5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France, and Germany), also known as E3+3, concluded the historic accord in July 2015 and implemented it in January 2016. Under the agreement, certain limits have been put on Iran’s nuclear activities in exchange for, among other things, the removal of all nuclear-related bans against Tehran. In all of its reports since coming into force of the JCPOA, the IAEA has verified the non-diversion of declared nuclear material in Iran as well as the Islamic Republic’s commitment to the nuclear deal. Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump was to decide on Friday whether to waive nuclear sanctions on Iran or effectively end the US participation in the nuclear agreement. Western media reported early on Friday that Trump had decided to extend Iran’s sanctions relief. In October, Trump said he would not certify Iran’s compliance with the nuclear agreement that was negotiated under the previous administration because Tehran was “in violation of the spirit” of the accord. The Trump administration asked the US Congress to come up with a solution to address “many flaws” in the deal, such as existing sunset provisions and exclusion of Iran’s ballistic missile program. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said last week that Trump would be inclined to authorize another sanctions waiver if he felt that real progress was being made toward the changes he demanded in October.
The family’s house was destroyed by mud, boulders, debris and rushing water, said Mike Caldwell, general manager of Toyota of Santa Barbara, where Sutthithepa was an employee, in a GoFundMe page to raise funds for the family. “Literally nothing is left.”
In October, Mr Tillerson refused to deny he had referred to Mr Trump as a "——- moron".

On Jan. 10, 1957, weeks after black residents returned to unsegregated buses in the Alabama capital, King convened a gathering at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, the church where his father preached and that he would later lead. He invited influential civil rights activists, like strategist Bayard Rustin and organizer Ella Baker, and prominent black ministers from across the South to discuss how to expand the nonviolent resistance movement. After weeks of discussions, they formed the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), a confederation of civil rights groups across the South, with King at the helm, that would go on to spread his philosophy.

The top diplomat reiterated that any move that undermines the accord is unacceptable and that the “E3 and EU [are] fully aware that Iran’s continued compliance [is] conditioned on full compliance by the US.” The European officials who attended the meeting also underlined support for preserving the Iran nuclear deal.
