The world is bracing for what another four years of Trump could look like

What’s going to look like a second presidential term for Donald Trump — if it does happen? That was the thought in the minds of many delegates, as they gathered for a security conference during the weekend in Munich’s southern German city. The conference’s official theme was “Westlessness,” a deliberate gripe over the effects of Trump’s isolationist,…

Trump says he has the right to take action on criminal matters

US President Donald Trump tweeted that he had “the legal right” to interfere in criminal cases after his attorney-general argued that tweets from the White House made his work “impossible.” Last Thursday, America’s top senator William Barr told Mr. Trump to stop his tweets, claiming he wouldn’t be insulted.  Mr. Barr spoke out after Mr. Trump revived his attack last his former adviser Roger Stone’s criminal trial. Prosecutors had recommended that Stone serve a stiff sentence but that was unfair tweeted by Mr. Trump.  Mr. Trump ignored the appeal by the attorney general to stop tweeting on Friday morning.

Previously, Mr. Trump had called for inquiries into perceived…

Brexit: Boris Johnson lays out the UK-EU trade partnership plan

Boris Johnson is to set out his dream of a trade deal with the European Union, saying that the UK has “no need” to follow the rules of Brussels.  Later in London, the prime minister will use a speech to call for a free trade agreement in the Canadian model-and threaten to walk away if one can not be reached. “A free trade agreement does not need to include following EU rules,” he would…
