Trump rebukes Marjorie Taylor Greene’s failed attempt to oust Speaker Johnson

Former President Donald Trump called on House Republicans to not vote in favor of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., saying “this is not the time” to oust House Speaker Mike Johnson.

The House of Representatives on Wednesday killed an effort by Greene and Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., to vote on vacating the chair.

Green appeared to catch most Congressional watchers by surprise when she moved to force a vote on her motion to vacate the chair, which should have allowed for the vote.

Though she has been seen in the past touting a MAGA hat in favor of Trump, the former president called on Republicans to table her motion.

“I absolutely love Marjorie Taylor Greene. She’s got Spirit, she’s got Fight, and I believe she’ll be around, and on our side, for a long time to come,” Trump posted on Truth Social. “However, right now, Republicans have to be fighting the Radical Left Democrats, and all the Damage they have done to our Country. With a Majority of One, shortly growing to three or four, we’re not in a position of voting on a Motion to Vacate. At some point, we may very well be, but this is not the time.”

HOUSE SQUASHES MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE’S MOTION TO OUST SPEAKER JOHNSON

He continued to say he is leading in the presidential polls, both nationally and in swing states.

Trump said Republicans are doing well in the Senate, and he believed the party would do well in the House.

He then warned about giving off the message that Republicans were not unified.

“But if we show DISUNITY, which will be portrayed as CHAOS, it will negatively affect everything,” he wrote. “Mike Johnson is a good man who is trying very hard. I also wish certain things were done over the last period of two months, but we will get them done, together.

“It is my request that Republicans vote for “THE MOTION TO TABLE,” Trump added. “We WILL WIN BIG – AND IT WILL BE SOON!”

Johnson got overwhelming Democratic and Republican support for the table vote, which passed 359 to 43, averting a vote on her motion. Just 11 Republicans voted against tabling the measure, along with 32 Democrats.

HOUSE DEMS SAY THEY’LL BLOCK MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE FROM OUSTING SPEAKER JOHNSON

On the Republican side, Johnson won the support of 196 members, while 163 Democrats also voted to shield him.

The House GOP side of the chamber erupted in cheers when her move was squashed.

Greene has been threatening to force a vote on taking Johnson’s gavel since late March in protest of his handling of government funding and foreign aid.

Her resolution, known as a motion to vacate the chair, will now have to be voted on or tabled after Greene noticed it as “privileged” on Wednesday night — meaning House leaders have two legislative days to take it up.

Illegal migrants won’t leave tent city, send list of 13 demands to Dem mayor

A group of illegal immigrants in Denver is refusing to leave encampments until the city meets its demands.

The migrants published a document with 13 specific demands before they acquiesce to Denver Human Services’ request to leave the encampments and move to more permanent shelters funded by the city. 

“At the end of the day, what we do not want is families on the streets of Denver,” Jon Ewing, a spokesman for Denver Human Services, told Fox 31.

The list sent to Mayor Mike Johnston included requests for provisions of “fresh, culturally appropriate” food, no time limits on showers and free immigration lawyers, the outlet reported.

DENVER CITY OFFICIAL CAUGHT ON CAMERA BEGGING MIGRANTS TO LEAVE, HEAD TO CHICAGO, NYC 

The migrants insisted that if these are not met, they will not leave their tent community.

The current encampment is situated “near train tracks and under a bridge,” Fox 31 noted, adding that it has been there for the last couple of weeks. 

Further details of the demands read, “Migrants will cook their own food with fresh, culturally appropriate ingredients provided by the City instead of premade meals – rice, chicken, flour, oil, butter, tomatoes, onions, etc… Shower access will be available without time limits & can be accessed whenever… Medical professional visits will happen regularly & referrals/connections for specialty care will be made as needed.”

The migrants also insisted they get “connection to employment support, including work permit applications for those who qualify,” as well as “Consultations for each person/family with a free immigration lawyer.

Additionally, the migrants demanded privacy within the shelter once moved there and, “No more verbal or physical or mental abuse will be permitted from the staff, including no sheriff sleeping inside & monitoring 24/7 – we are not criminals & won’t be treated as such.”

DENVER MAYOR PLEADS FOR NATIONALLY COORDINATED EFFORT ON MIGRANT CRISIS AS CITY NEARS ‘BREAKING POINT’

The demands were sent following the Denver government obtaining a petition to have the migrants moved, according to the outlet.

Ewing told Fox 31 the city just wants “to get families to leave that camp and come inside,” noting its offer will give migrants “three square meals a day” and the freedom to cook.

He also said the government is willing to work with people to compromise and help them figure out what kind of assistance they qualify for. 

Ultimately, Ewing said, the city wants to work with migrants to determine, “What might be something that is a feasible path for you to success that is not staying on the streets of Denver?” 

The Denver mayor has been under pressure from the city’s ongoing migrant crisis, making headlines and receiving stiff backlash earlier this year for proposing budget cuts to the city’s government, including cuts to the city’s police force, to fund more money for dealing with the city’s migrant crisis.

The city of Denver did not immediately reply to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.

Travis Kelce shocked by country singer’s claims he’s ‘always drunk’

Travis Kelce was reportedly confused as to why “One Tree Hill” actress Jana Kramer expressed her concerns about the Kansas City Chiefs star allegedly drinking too much.

“To me, he’s always drunk,” Kramer said on her “Whine Down” podcast. “Every time I’ve ever seen a video he’s just always drunk.”

Kramer was worried that it led to Taylor Swift “drinking more now” and added that she had a problem with Kelce’s outburst toward Chiefs head coach Andy Reid during the Super Bowl.

But sources told Page Six on Wednesday that Kelce doesn’t have a drinking issue.

“The guy is under a microscope, basically being watched everywhere he goes,” the source told the outlet. “Of course you’re going to see him drinking. He’s being watched everywhere he goes.”

GIANTS LEGEND PHIL SIMMS SAYS DEPARTURE FROM CBS ‘WASN’T A GREAT SURPRISE’ AMID RADIO SILENCE FROM NETWORK

The source added that if Kelce was “passed out somewhere,” then it would raise bigger alarms. But he’s just a “normal human being” doing what everyone else does — except he’s in the public eye.

Another source told TMZ that Kelce has never even met Kramer and “she only invoked his name to clout-chase — and on its face, you could argue it worked.”

For what it’s worth, Kelce has been almost everywhere since the Chiefs won the Super Bowl for the second straight year, becoming only the second team since the New England Patriots in 2003 and 2004 to accomplish the feat.

Kelce is also dating the most popular musical artist in the world, and partying with A-list celebrities comes with the territory.

Mom and child on cruise airlifted by Air Force in hair-raising rescue

A mother and her child in crisis were airlifted by helicopter from a Carnival Cruise Line ship on Saturday in a hair-raising Air Force rescue. 

Two HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopters, two HC-130J Combat King 11 aircraft and two teams of combat rescue officers and pararescuemen based at Patrick Space Force Base in Brevard County, Florida, flew 350 nautical miles off the U.S. eastern coast to reach the Carnival Venezia, the 920th Rescue Wing said Tuesday. 

The ship had set sail on April 26 from Port Canaveral, Florida, for a 10-day cruise to the Bahamas and Caribbean. To reach the Venezia’s location, rescuers needed three air-to-air refuelings, the Air Force said.

Dramatic photos show the unnamed woman and her son being hoisted up into the helicopter from the ship’s deck.

“The patient was successfully transferred to a hospital in the United States,” a U.S. Air Force spokesperson said. “After 8 hours, and more than 1,200 miles flown, the mission was complete when all of the aircraft returned to Patrick SFB.”

The nature of the medical emergency was not immediately clear. Fox News Digital has reached out to Carnival Cruise Line for comment.

“These real-world missions are what our countless hours of training have prepared us for. Rescue was able to plan and execute this mission without hesitation,” Lt. Col. John Lowe said. “This combined arms team is highly trained in their field while understanding what role they play in the bigger picture and led to the successful completion of the mission.”

House passes bill to stop census from counting noncitizens

The House of Representatives passed a bill Wednesday evening to add a citizenship question to the next U.S. census, with zero Democrats voting in favor.

“If you are an illegal immigrant, you should not be represented in the U.S. Congress,” House Majority Whip Tom Emmer, R-Minn., told Fox News Digital after the vote. “It’s a shame that House Democrats are allowing their open-borders agenda to get in the way of common sense.”

The legislation is called the Equal Representation Act, led by Rep. Chuck Edwards, R-N.C. In addition to including a question on citizenship status on the census, the bill would also exclude non-citizens from the population count when factoring how many lawmakers in the House of Representatives each state gets, as well as the number of electors for all 50 states.

It passed along party lines with 206 Republicans in favor and 202 Democrats against.

SANCTUARY CITY POLICY ARREST OVER 1K MIGRANTS FROM THIS COUNTRY AS RESIDENTS RAGE AGAINST DEM LEADERS

“Though commonsense dictates that only citizens should be counted for apportionment purposes, illegal aliens have nonetheless recently been counted toward the final tallies that determine how many House seats each state is allocated and the number of electoral votes it will wield in presidential elections,” Edwards said during debate on the bill. “And since the illegal alien population is not evenly distributed throughout the nation, American citizens in some states are losing representation in Congress to illegal aliens in other states.”

There was some uncertainty over whether the bill would pass given near-uniform opposition from Democrats as well as some Republicans.

Two House GOP aides told Fox News Digital earlier Wednesday that Republican lawmakers in New York and California, as well as several other establishment GOP members had reservations about the bill.

And Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., can afford precious little dissent, overseeing just a one-seat majority in the House. 

A majority of House Republicans support the bill, however, citing the record levels of illegal immigrants who have come to the U.S. under President Biden’s tenure.

Including a citizenship question on the U.S. census is not a new idea, however – former President Trump tried to have it added before the 2020 census, but it was blocked by the Supreme Court.

One of the Democrats speaking out against the bill ahead of the Wednesday vote was Rep. Nanette Barragan, D-Calif., chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.

OUTRAGED RESIDENT WARNS WHAT $70M MIGRANT FUNDING WILL DO TO SANCTUARY CITY

“This requirement would deprive tens of millions of immigrants their right to representation,” Barragan said, adding it would have a “chilling effect on participation in the census.”

“Its accuracy would be destroyed,” she said.

Rep. Clay Higgins, R-La., a supporter of the bill, argued it would not negate the census’ intended purpose of counting everyone in the U.S.

“While this bill will continue to count every person in the United States, it adds a simple question – are you a United States citizen?” Higgins posed. “The problem is the level of illegal persons who now live in our country because of President Biden’s failure at the southern border.”

A New York Republican in favor of the bill, Rep. Nick Langworthy, R-N.Y., said on the House floor, “We’re talking millions of people who are not American citizens having a major say in American elections.”

Another lawmaker supporting the bill, Rep. Tim Burchett, R-Tenn., accused Democrats of opposing the bill because it would negatively impact their power in Congress.

CHICAGO CITY COUNCIL APPROVES $70M FOR MIGRANT CARE DESPITE VOTER BACKLASH 

“You could see why my Democratic colleagues would have a problem with this bill. Factoring illegal aliens into the process skews things in their favor,” Burchett said. “If the census does not include the citizenship question, states with more illegal aliens will get more congressional districts and more electoral college votes.”

Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, argued against the bill, “I’m for a whole lot more lawful immigration to America, less unlawful immigration to America…and a lot less demagoguery about who we are as a country.”

He later added, “One should be clear that under this legislation, they’re roping out of reapportionment not just undocumented people, they’re roping out permanent residents…they’re talking about disenfranchising from the reapportionment process, millions of people who are lawfully [in the U.S.].”

Former White House economist issues dire market warning over potential Trump conviction

As America’s macroeconomic story has slowed quite considerably over the past year, one former White House adviser warned about “the big risk” to financial stability.

“I really think if you look at the case in New York, that the judge is being so undemocratic, unconstitutional in his rulings against President Trump, it really looks like there’s a conspiracy to put him in jail, to put him behind bars,” former White House Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Kevin Hassett said Tuesday on “Mornings with Maria.

“And if President Trump is in chains, going to Rikers Island, then would you want to buy a U.S. Treasury the next day?” he posited.

U.S. gross domestic product (GDP), the broadest measure of goods and services produced across the economy, grew by 1.6% on an annualized basis in the three-month period from January through March, the Commerce Department reported in its first reading of the data this year.

TRUMP CAMPAIGN BLASTS BIDEN FOR ‘LARGEST TAX HIKE EVER’ AS AMERICANS FACE ‘RECORD-HIGH INFLATION’

It marked the slowest pace of growth in two years, and significantly missed the 2.4% increase forecast by LSEG economists and signaled a sharp slowdown from the 3.4% pace seen during the fourth quarter.

After posting the subpar growth momentum, stock investors went into selling mode as markets reacted with the Dow Jones Industrial Average falling over 375 points and the S&P 500 and tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite closing lower by 0.5% and 0.6%, respectively.

“The thing that I’m really worried about, about short-term risk for the economy, is that the Democrats are serious in this lawfare,” Hassett said, “and if they actually succeed, then imagine, it’s like we become a banana republic the moment they take him to Rikers. And I just can’t imagine what happens to Treasury markets that day.”

As stocks tumbled two weeks ago, bonds rose with the yield on the 10-year Treasury touching 4.076%, the highest since November.

“Markets will take note,” Hassett argued of potential jail time for Trump, “and it’ll be one of the bigger market effects that we’ve ever seen.”

“Yields go way, way up and equities go way, way down,” he added. “If you’re a Swiss investor and you’re thinking, ‘should I buy a U.S. bond?’ And you see Trump going to Rikers on ridiculous charges, right? Then you’re not going to want to buy the bonds.”

NBA star’s surprising reaction to ex-wife saying she wasn’t in love with him

NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal appeared to address comments made by his ex-wife, who said he kept “going missing” while they were still together. 

O’Neal has been open about his flaws in his past marriage with Shaunie Henderson, whom he was with for almost nine years before they got a divorce in 2011. 

After Henderson made the comments in her new book, ‘Undefeated: Changing the Rules and Winning on My Own Terms,’ O’Neal posted on social media seemingly admitting his faults yet again.

“I understand…I wouldn’t have been in love with me either,” he said. “Wishing you all the best…All love, Shaq.” 

O’Neal and Henderson had four children together: sons Shareef and Shaquir and daughters Amirah and Me’arah. 

Shareef O’Neal commented under his post saying, “Love you man! You saved my life.” 

Shareef had to undergo heart surgery after being diagnosed with an anomalous coronary artery, a congenital heart defect that caused an artery to grow in the wrong place when he was 18 years old. 

SHAQUILLE O’NEAL SAYS HE’S ONLY WATCHING WOMEN’S COLLEGE BASKETBALL THIS YEAR: ‘THE BOYS SUCK’

There was a possibility Shareef would never play basketball again, but he played for the G League Ignite this past season, averaging 5.6 points over 15.5 minutes per game.  

Henderson broke down her marriage with O’Neal within the binds of her book, beginning with how everything seemed great at first. However, looking back, she said she was blind to things early on that were starting to make the marriage “crumble.”

“I enjoyed those sweet early years being a mother and raising my children; my days were always busy with kids and family, and every now and then I got to travel or enjoy a little of the NBA high life. But invisibly, my marriage was beginning to crumble,” Henderson wrote, per the New York Post. 

“As I’ve written, it wasn’t obvious early on. You know how when you first get sick, and the symptoms are so mild that you’re not even sure you are sick? That’s how things were in the early years. I was busy and happy and didn’t notice what was going on. But as the disease progressed, the symptoms became harder and harder to ignore.”

Henderson said she couldn’t ignore O’Neal not being around when his daily responsibilities were handled by others. 

“Take Shaquille’s habit of ‘going missing,’” Henderson wrote. “Our chef did all the grocery shopping. His managers paid all the bills. I took care of the kids. So where was he going in the morning, during the day, and at night? No one works out that often.”

Henderson added that she heard the rumor that O’Neal had a condo in Miami Beach after he was traded from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Miami Heat

“I started to get suspicious, but he always had an answer, and I could never prove anything. Eventually, I was forced to admit that my family life wasn’t as blissful or perfect as I wanted to believe.”

Since their divorce, O’Neal has said on numerous occasions that he was a problem during their marriage. In April 2023, he went on “The Pivot Podcast,” where he said, “I was bad. It was all me.”

Grieving mom’s heartwarming discovery reminds her of God’s loving presence

Just ahead of Mother’s Day this year, the husband-and-wife team of SQuire Rushnell and Louise DuArt, co-founders of the Godwinks brands and based in Massachusetts, shared an endearing personal story of family and faith with Fox News Digital.

It’s among the stories they’re writing for a forthcoming book. 

“We all need more light. We need more positivity. We need family and faith, hope and strength — that’s what these stories are all about,” the couple told Fox News Digital by phone. 

‘DOGWINKS’ ARE MAN’S BEST FRIEND BRINGING THE DIVINE INTO OUR LIVES WITH ‘GODWINKS’ 

SQuire Rushnell is the New York Times-bestselling author of 12 Godwinks books, six of them co-authored by the pair. 

The couple are executive producers of the popular Hallmark “Godwink” movie series, and their first film for Netflix, “Rescued for Ruby,” premiered as the network’s No. 1 family movie worldwide — grabbing over 100 million viewers in its first 365 days. (It recently ranked as the top “dog movie” of all time on Netflix.) 

Enjoy this piece from SQuire Rushnell and Louise DuArt published here by special arrangement — and in celebration of Mother’s Day this weekend for mothers and families everywhere. 

Mom of lost son cries, ‘No card for Mother’s Day!’ — but she’s mistaken 

Mary Alexander of Virginia sat cross-legged on the floor of the closet, lost in sadness.

When she’d gotten up that morning, she had the mistaken notion that diving into the drudgery of cleaning out a closet would be a fitting distraction from the sorrow that had again crept over her.

Yet another Mother’s Day was approaching since she lost her youngest son, Jason.

GRIEVING DURING MOTHER’S DAY: 5 TIPS FOR NAVIGATING THE FIRST HOLIDAY AFTER LOSING A MOM 

She felt the twinge of disappointment.

Once again, she wouldn’t be receiving Mother’s Day cards from both her boys this year, a special experience she’d enjoyed for so long.

Her other son Brian, who had lived in Norway for several years, never forgot — and his sweet card had already arrived. She was so appreciative of that.

It was the missing card from the missing son that broke her heart.

As far back as she could remember, Jason had always made a fuss over Mother’s Day.

His cards as a child were always carefully handcrafted. Then, as a young man, he’d endlessly search the shop racks for a card expressing just the right sentiments to touch his mother’s heart.

MOTHERS SHARE STORIES OF THEIR LIVES, PLUS TIPS AND INSPIRATION, IN ‘LOVE, MOM’ BY DR. NICOLE SAPHIER

The thought of it filled her eyes with tears. 

She forced herself to pivot back to the task at hand.

“How could the same mother who nursed that child never know that he had an oversized heart?”

“How can you lose a son who’s only 39 years old?” she asked herself rhetorically while pulling old papers and magazines from a large cardboard box that had occupied too much space for too long.

“And how could the same mother who nursed that child never know that he had an oversized heart?”

Again she searched her conscience. Was there something she could have done to prevent her son’s death?

Her urge to lose herself in tears was momentarily crowded out by a happy thought. She pictured Jason that final time he came over for Wednesday dinner, which he did every week almost without fail.

Remembering his boyish blush when she teased him — calling him “her bachelor son,” “my 6-foot-6’ gentle giant” or “her baby” — made her smile.

She also loved his sensitivity. Since his older brother could only get back to the U.S. at Christmas, Jason seemed to expand his attentiveness to his mother, as if to help compensate.

Mary Alexander remembered her youngest son’s sweet countenance that last evening.

That night, she had the urge to hug him extra tight, a little bit longer.

As he was about to leave her that night, she had the urge to hug him extra tight, a little bit longer.

Then, inexplicably, she burst into tears. 

She quickly chastised herself. After all, she would see him again … next Wednesday. Right? That’s what she told herself. 

GRATITUDE OVERSHADOWS GREAT LOSS, SAYS AUTHOR OF BOOK ABOUT LOSING WIFE TO CANCER

But her mother’s intuition became a tragic reality when she heard the knock on the door at 4 a.m.

She peeked out and saw four police officers standing there. Knowing it couldn’t be good news, she screamed for her husband, Neil.  

An officer explained that Jason had been to a concert with friends. He told the others he was tired and wasn’t feeling well, so someone escorted him to the car to lie down. That’s where he was found. A massive heart attack had taken his life.

Only later did an autopsy discover that Jason had an enlarged heart.

‘Stopped her in her tracks’

Sitting on the floor of the closet, replaying the memory of the police officers speaking in guarded voices and recalling her sudden sense of collapsing, she again felt tears straining to rise from the back of her throat. 

It was an unstamped envelope, addressed in a child’s handwriting. 

She forced her lips tightly together, trying to hold them at bay.

Frustrated, she roughly shoved the box, but it was too heavy. It didn’t budge. She yanked out handfuls of old magazines, slamming them onto the floor.

FOR PATRIOTIC AMERICAN MOMS ON MOTHER’S DAY, HERE ARE 6 GREAT GIFT IDEAS 

Again reaching into the box, she felt something. She lifted it up — and it stopped her in her tracks.

It was an unstamped envelope, addressed in a child’s handwriting, to the local newspaper.

Thirty years had passed since either of her boys had written in that childlike manner.

She wondered: So whose handwriting is it? 

She opened the envelope. It was a newspaper contest asking for an essay that would complete this statement: “My mother is the best mom because …”

Dumbfounded, Mary slowly read the child’s words before her.

“She’s always there when I need her the most. Even though I can make her real angry sometimes, she always understands because she’s so caring and understanding … That’s why she’ll always be No. 1 to me, and her family.”

And then she saw the name of the signer. 

It was from her son, Jason. 

He was 12 years old when he wrote that message.

‘By the hand of God’

In a mixture of melancholy and joy, Mary’s tears dripped down her cheeks. She realized she was holding a treasured gift that had arrived via special delivery, by the hand of God.

While sitting on the floor of her closet, Mary’s unspoken prayer was answered. She would get Mother’s Day cards this year from both her sons, from Jason as well as from Brian.

She began contemplating the wink from God — what we call the “Godwink.” 

Jason had never mailed his entry to the newspaper, probably due to lacking a stamp. 

MOTHER’S DAY: THE BEST ONE-LINERS AND LIFE ADVICE I’VE EVER GOTTEN FROM MOM

But if he had, that little envelope never would have been sitting at the bottom of the box, waiting for his mom to find it, at just the right moment on Mother’s Day weekend, 30 years later.

She giggled at the idea that Jason, at that moment, was undoubtedly at God’s side … and both were looking down, giggling right along with her.

44-foot endangered sea creature ends up stuck to ship’s bow

Travelers on a cruise ship bound for New England and Canadian ports had to stop at a port in New York City after a 44-foot endangered whale was discovered lying dead across its bow.

A spokesperson for MSC Cruises said the whale was on the MSC Meraviglia, which docked at the Port of Brooklyn before sailing to its next destination. 

“We can confirm with deep regret that on Saturday a whale was discovered on the bow of our ship as the vessel approached the port of New York, Sidney Sterling, director of media relations for MSC Cruises told Fox News Digital. “We immediately notified the relevant authorities, who are now conducting an examination of the whale.”

The whale, identified as an endangered sei whale, was caught on the ship’s bow when it arrived in Brooklyn on Saturday, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration fisheries spokesperson Andrea Gomez said.

CARNIVAL CRUISE PASSENGERS AIRLIFTED BY AIR FORCE IN DRAMATIC RESCUE

“Sei whales are endangered, and are typically observed in deeper waters far from the coastline. NOAA’s Office of Law Enforcement is investigating this incident,” Gomez said.

Gomez continued, saying that the whale was relocated and towed to shore at Sandy Hook, New Jersey, to allow for better access to heavy equipment and resources to conduct a necropsy examination, which is an autopsy for animals.

“The right flipper had broken bones, and there was evidence of tissue trauma along the right shoulder blade region,” Gomez said.

Gomez said the tissue and bone samples collected during the examination will help biologists determine if the cruise ship hit the whale when it was still alive or if it was already dead.

“We are deeply saddened by the loss of any marine life. We have comprehensive measures in place to help avoid collisions, such as training all our deck officers with the Ocean Research & Conservation Association (ORCA) and we follow regulations designed to protect whales and other marine life,” Sterling said. “This includes altering itineraries in certain regions to avoid whales and we will continue to evaluate and update our procedures with our partners and the authorities.”
