In the early morning on Friday, North Korea failed to try to launch a ballistic missile Musudan or BM-25, according to reports. An anonymous defense official placed the attempt at 5:03 local time (2033 on Thursday UTC).

According to South Korean news agency Yonhap, the missile’s range is 3,000 to 4,000 kilometers (about 1850 to 2500 miles), enough to reach the US base on the island of Guam.

A statement from the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said “North Korea appears to have tried to shoot, this morning, a missile from the area of the East Sea, but it is presumed that the launch failed.” According to Yonhap, North Korea did not notify the International Maritime Organization of the launch.

Friday was the 104th birthday of the founder of North Korea and grandfather of present leader Kim Jong-un, Kim Il-sung, which is celebrated with military parades and events.

Donald Trump speaking at a rally in Arizona in 2016.

Donald Trump appears on track to win the Pennsylvania presidential preference primary in the race for the Republican Party nomination for U.S. president, according to a new poll out today from Monmouth University. The telephone survey of 303 Pennsylvania voters likely to vote Republican found 44-percent backing Trump, with challengers Ted Cruz and John Kasich earning just 28-percent and 23-percent support, respectively, reported the Monmouth University Polling Institute.

“It looks like Trump should be able to bank the 17 statewide delegates in Pennsylvania,” said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, in a written statement. “The real question is how the directly elected district delegates will vote at the convention in July.”

Pennsylvania awards 17 of its 71 GOP delegates to the top overall vote-getter in the state. The remaining 54 delegates are apportioned by congressional district and are unbound to any candidate.

Voters go to the polls in Pennsylvania on Tuesday, April 26. According to Monmouth its survey, conducted from April 10 to 12, 2016, has a margin of error of 5.6-percent.

The 2016 New York presidential preference primary may deliver decisive victories for Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, however, it’s unclear if either would stand a chance against Franklin Roosevelt … were the 32nd U.S. president still alive.

A new poll from Public Policy Polling found 33-percent of respondents in New York identified Roosevelt when asked whom their favorite former president was from the Empire State. The late president’s fifth cousin, Theodore Roosevelt, was the second choice of New Yorkers, earning 31-percent support. Other presidents originally from New York did not fare as well. Martin Van Buren, Millard Fillmore, Grover Cleveland, and Chester Arthur all polled in the single digits.

The survey also asked New Yorkers about their favorite American founding father, with Benjamin Franklin taking top honors at 30-percent support. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were in second and third place, polling 23-percent and 17-percent, respectively.

New Yorkers vote to select that state’s delegates to the Republican and Democratic party conventions on April 19.

According to Public Policy Polling, the poll of 1,403 New York voters was conducted by both phone and internet survey from April 7 to April 10, 2016 and has an overall margin of error of 2.6-percent.

Six former contestants on Donald Trump’s television program “The Apprentice” have announced their opposition to the candidacy of the frontrunner for the U.S. Republican Party presidential nomination. In a press release, Randal Pinkett, Kevin Allen, Marshawn Evans Daniels, Tara Dowdell, Kwame Jackson and James Sun said they would “use their collective voice to make a difference and fire The Apprentice politician.”

“We acknowledge Donald’s success as a businessman, and genuinely appreciate the opportunity The Apprentice afforded all of us,” says Pinkett, winner of Season 4 of the show, in a written statement. “We, however, strongly condemn Donald’s campaign of sexism, xenophobia, racism, violence and hate.”

Pinkett’s statement puts he and his colleagues at odds with others who have previously appeared as contestants on Trump’s television shows. Aaron Carter, Gary Busey, and Stephen Baldwin – all former cast members of “Celebrity Apprentice”, a spin-off of “The Apprentice” – have gone on-record making statements in support of Trump’s candidacy.

The announcement, which was timed for the eve of the New York Republican primary on April 19, may not be enough to derail Trump’s momentum in the Empire State. A Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday found that 55 percent of New York Republican primary voters are backing Trump for the GOP nomination, with challengers John Kasich and Ted Cruz trailing at 20-percent and 19-percent, respectively.
