In a significant departure from his campaign rhetoric, US President Donald Trump delivered a key speech delinking Islam from terrorism and urged leaders of more than 50 Muslim-majority countries gathered in the Saudi capital of Riyadh to drive out extremism from their lands.

 

 

The US announced a huge arms deal with Saudi Arabia on Saturday as President Donald Trump visited Riyadh on his maiden foreign tour.

 

Donald Trump is a man known for his love of big boy weapons. Yet the unquiet American showed over the weekend that he is, in fact, the caring and sharing kind. Though this comes at a price.

 

According to American media, President Trump reportedly leaked the identity of an intelligence source to those whom the NATO war machine — under the unofficial stewardship of that most hawkish of doves, Barrack Obama — has long been trying to recast as enemies of the state. Oh, those Russians.

 

Nowhere is the gap between the worldviews of Donald Trump and the United States establishment wider than in their respective attitudes towards Russia.

 

In a book stall near the centre of New York’s Times Square, that neon-drenched temple of commerce, there is a box full of puffy, rubber hands, each no larger than a matchbox. “Trump’s hand, full size,” says a sign on the box, a mocking reference to a national joke about small hands and — you get the drift.

 

President Donald Trump’s decision to fire James Comey as the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation at a time when the agency is expanding a probe into the possible collusion between Mr. Trump’s campaign team and Moscow could well be a turning point in a scandal that is engulfing his administration.

 

On May 7, France came through, saying a decisive “no” to racism, xenophobia and fascism, when it elected Emmanuel Macron as president with around 66 per cent of the vote.

 

The so-called de-escalation agreement reached among Russia, Turkey and Iran last week in Astana is the latest in a series of attempts to bring the six-year-old Syrian civil war to an end.

 

This could be the era not just of business startups but also of political startups. Emmanuel Macron has come seemingly out of nowhere – his party En Marche! was formed just a year back – to decimate candidates from established political parties and win France’s presidency.
