Democrats give Trump 10 days to hand over tax returns

Democratic lawmakers on Saturday gave tax authorities a final deadline of April 23 to hand over President Donald Trump's tax returns, which Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the administration was considering.

Democrats have seized on the issue of Trump's undisclosed taxes since taking control of the House of Representatives - citing a little-known law that allows Congress to review anyone's returns to conduct an investigation.

On Wednesday, Mnuchin said the Treasury was handling the request and that a deadline set for that date would be missed, citing possible constitutional issues. But on Saturday, he said the administration would respond by the revised deadline.

Football: Two Pogba penalties earn sluggish Man United a win over West Ham

Two Paul Pogba penalties earned lethargic Manchester United a 2-1 victory over West Ham United in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Having lost five of their previous six matches in all competitions, United looked short on confidence early on against West Ham, who had a goal ruled out in the 10th minute when Felipe Anderson was adjudged to be offside when finding the net.

That tight call went United's way, and soon after they were in front when Pogba hammered home a 19th minute penalty, much to the relief of home crowd.
