WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Friday dropped his choice of John Ratcliffe to be U.S. spy chief after questions arose about the congressman’s lack of experience and possible exaggerations in his resume in the latest upheaval over a top national security post.

Britain's new Prime-Minister Boris Johnson suffered the first serious blow to his leadership on Thursday when his ruling Conservative Party lost a seat in Wales, cutting its working majority in parliament to just one. The seat in Brecon and Radnorshire was won by Jane Dodds, the candidate for the Liberal Democrats, who overturned a majority of more than 8,000 votes to beat Conservative Chris Davies.

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Minutes after Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden bungled his closing statement in Wednesday’s debate by telling voters to go to a campaign website that did not exist, a college student was using the URL for a spoof election bid. Biden misspoke by directing viewers to “go to Joe30330” rather than “text JOE to 30330,” setting off a flurry of jokes on Twitter about the 76-year-old’s ineptitude with technology and a digital race to buy...

MOUNT PLEASANT, Wis. (Reuters) - Kim Mahoney listened from her reclining living room couch as Democratic presidential candidates debated economic, trade and environmental policies this week, needing only to look to her backyard to see how lofty political pledges can really play out.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump’s longtime political adviser Roger Stone on Thursday lost a long-shot bid to overturn a seven-count indictment against him stemming from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

The indictment against Stone...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Some of U.S. President Donald Trump’s allies worry his racially charged fights with opponents are hurting his re-election chances even as Democratic rivals make things easier for him by bickering over their own key policies. Trump faces no serious challenge from within his Republican Party, the economy is growing, and two televised debates this week highlighted the divisions within the Democratic Party over healthcare, immigration and criminal justice reform. That combination of factors could allow...

DETROIT (Reuters) - Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden survived another debate night of sustained criticism, while many of his rivals for the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination leave Detroit hoping they did enough to keep their bids alive.

U.S....
