The US is expected to formally withdraw from a nuclear missile treaty with Russia on Friday, sparking fears of a new arms race. Moscow and Washington signed the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty in 1987 but have in recent years increasingly accused each other of violating its terms — the agreement prohibits both countries from owning missiles with ranges between 500 and 5,500 kms. US President Donald Trump warned in February that the country would pull out on August 2 unless...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate on Thursday passed and sent to President Donald Trump a two-year budget deal that would increase federal spending on defense and an array of other domestic programs, significantly adding to rapidly escalating government debt. By a vote of 67-28, the Senate ignored late-hour appeals from some conservative Republicans who support bigger military expenditures and tax cuts that constrain revenues but were angered over more spending for non-defense domestic programs. Last week the Democratic-controlled...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Detroit-based General Motors Co emerged from two days of Democratic debates in its hometown largely unscathed as 2020 White House hopefuls largely passed up an opportunity to criticize it for significant job cuts in recent months. The largest U.S. automaker has come under fierce criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike for months after its November announcement that it would end production at five North American assembly plants and eliminate about 14,700 jobs. It had been bracing...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A group of U.S. senators on Wednesday questioned the Federal Aviation Administration oversight of Boeing Co’s 737 MAX as the agency defended the longstanding practice of deferring much of the process of certifying new aircraft to manufacturers. At a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing, the panel’s chair, Republican Susan Collins, and numerous Democrats criticized the FAA’s interaction with Boeing, saying the agency faced pressure from the company to get its new plane approved on schedule. Boeing’s...

President Vladimir Putin has ordered the Russian army to take part in fire-fighting efforts in Siberia as environmentalists describe the blazes raging across the region as an ecological catastrophe. The government claims the fires pose no danger to communities, but people are starting to suffer from the effects of smoke. A series of enormous wildfires have spread across Russia's eastern region of Siberia, prompting states of emergency to be declared and sparking outrage from locals who say authorities aren't responding...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s congressional testimony will feature in a television ad advocating for impeaching President Donald Trump, set to run before and after the Democratic presidential debates this week. Backed by the Need to Impeach group founded by billionaire Democratic candidate Tom Steyer, the “What Mueller Said” ad will run on CNN and MSNBC, days after Mueller told two congressional panels about his investigation of Trump and Russia. Excerpts from the testimony will...

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson pushed Britain closer to a no-deal exit from the European Union on Monday, insisting he will not hold Brexit talks with EU leaders unless the bloc lifts its refusal to reopen the existing divorce deal - notably backstop. "My assumption is that we can get a new deal, we are aiming for a new deal," he said during a visit to the Faslane naval base in Scotland. Johnson said the EU must drop a "backstop" intended...

Don’t expect to see Chris Colfer return for a Glee reboot any time soon. The American actor, who earned a Golden Globe nomination for his role at Kurt Hummel on the musical comedy series, spoke with USA Today about a potential revival of the Ryan Murphy series, saying “that’s not for me”. “Glee was an incredible, life-changing experience,” said Colfer, before adding that it’s an experience he would not want to live through again. The show hasn’t been confirmed for a...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department will not pursue criminal charges against Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, after Democrats in the House of Representatives voted to hold them in contempt in a dispute over documents concerning whether to include a citizenship question on the 2020 Census. In a letter on Wednesday to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen said that responses Barr and Ross made in response to congressional subpoenas over...

On Friday 19 July, 20-year-old Kathy Zhu shared a screenshot of an email she received from the Miss World America organisation, informing her that she would be stripped of her Miss Michigan title, which she had recently won. “It has been brought to the attention of Miss World America that your social media accounts contain offensive, insensitive and inappropriate content,” the letter said, adding that she no longer met the requirement of “being in good character”. Kathy claimed that the social...

Earlier this month, the anonymous footballer opened a Twitter account under the name ‘The Gay Footballer’, claiming he was a Championship player under the age of 23 and would be “revealing identity soon”. But the night before before he was expected to hold a press conference to announce his identity on Wednesday (24 July), he informed his more than 50,000 followers that the plan had changed, and that he would no longer be coming out. “I thought I was stronger....

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller emphasized on Wednesday he had not exonerated Donald Trump of obstruction of justice, as the president has claimed, but his long-awaited congressional testimony did little to add momentum to any Democratic impeachment ambitions and Trump heartily declared victory. In seven hours of congressional testimony, Mueller accused Trump of not always being truthful, called his support for the 2016 release of stolen Democratic emails “problematic” and said Russia would again try to...
