Trump signs temporary spending bill, punting government shutdown risks to just before Christmas
Evan Vucci/AP President Donald Trump on Thursday approved a measure that would temporarily stave off the threat of a government shutdown.

Scooter Braun finally spoke out about his feud with Taylor Swift, and urged her to talk with him: 'People need to communicate'
Terry Wyatt/Todd Williamson/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images Scooter Braun finally broke his silence on his feud with Taylor Swift during a Q&A on Thursday.  When asked how he deals with the numerous Swift supporters blaming him for the singer's legal problems, Braun blamed social media for fueling the fire.
