      Community members held a meeting Monday night to discuss ways to preserve East Austin's art history.

    • Trump calls Ariana Grande attack perpetrators 'evil losers'
      President Donald Trump on Tuesday slammed those behind the Manchester attack as "evil losers" and reiterated his call to drive out terrorists.

      "I extend my deepest condolences to those so terribly injured in this terrorist attack and to the many killed and the families, so many families, of the victims. We stand in absolute solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom," Trump said, in his first comment on the Monday night attack at a concert Manchester, England.

      Monday's attack outside an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena killed at least 22 people, including children, and was carried out by a lone suspect carrying a bomb, Manchester Police said.
