President Donald Trump has requested to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in late June on the sidelines of the G20 meeting in Japan, according to media reports from Russia. Russian media reported that multiple Russian Foreign Ministry sources claimed Washington had reached out to Moscow to set up a meeting at the summit, which will be held on June 28 and 29 in Osaka. "We have always said that the presence of leaders at an event of the appropriate level would open such an opportunity," Sergei Ryabkov, Russia's deputy foreign minister, was quoted as saying in numerous reports. The reports were released one day before Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's visit on Tuesday to Sochi, Russia, to speak with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov about a variety of issues. Some reports claimed Pompeo would push the issue of a potential Trump-Putin meeting at this time. The White House did not respond to requests for comment from Newsweek in time for publication.

WASHINGTON — As the U.S. House pursues impeachment charges against President Donald Trump in the coming months, Louisiana is positioned to play a potentially dynamic role, with members of Congress on influential committees or taking on key surrogate roles.The reaction to news that House Democrats are launching an impeachment inquiry of Trump has largely split along party lines. Democrats heralded it as the breakthrough; Republicans have waved it off as another partisan-driven allegation.Likewise, Louisiana Republicans have called efforts to impeach Trump a “witch hunt,” argued that it’s driven by “hatred of the president,” and generally toed the White House line.The lone Democrat in Louisiana’s congressional delegation, who has been pushing impeachment for months, describes it as the inevitable outcome of a slow march since Democrats took control of the House in January.“The biggest thing to take out of that is the incredibly polarized … [Read more...] about Here’s how Louisiana could impact the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump

Donald Trump’s bellicose policies, including new tariffs on steel and aluminium, have raised fears of a worldwide slide into protectionism and trade conflict. The US president’s unilateral and xenophobic approach to trade policy is reprehensible and dangerous from any perspective. But many progressives feel conflicted about Trump’s actions. After all, he is challenging business-friendly trade deals (including the TPP and Nafta) which labour, social and environmental advocates have opposed for years. And while his policies will clearly make life worse for working and poor people in the US, he is nevertheless speaking to their actual experience: unlike free trade defenders, who continue to pretend that the tide of globalisation has lifted all boats. Given Trump’s domination of the debate, progressives need to work quickly to distinguish our critique of globalisation from his. In particular, we must flesh out a vision of trade policy reforms that would genuinely … [Read more...] about Is Trump right about free trade or is there a fair alternative?
Donald Trump has weakened the country's relationship with its allies and wrecked U.S. credibility abroad, Sen. Elizabeth Warren has said. She vowed to repair the damage if she is elected president. In an op-ed for The Guardian under the headline "Donald Trump has destroyed American leadership – I'll restore it," Warren claimed three years of the Trump presidency has put the country's alliances under "enormous strain." "For seven decades, America's strength, security and prosperity have been underpinned by our unmatched network of treaty alliances, cemented in shared democratic values and a recognition of our common security," she wrote. "But after three years of Donald Trump's insults and antics, our alliances are under enormous strain." The Democratic presidential candidate highlighted the president's recent visit to London for the NATO summit as an example of the damage done by Trump's "hostility" to America's "closest partners." A tape that captured several NATO leaders … [Read more...] about Donald Trump Has Weakened Allies and ‘Wrecked U.S. Credibility’ Says Elizabeth Warren, Vowing to Repair Damage If Elected
