For generations, the United States and Canada have enjoyed one of the world’s most fruitful symbiotic relationships. The two nations share a border that stretches over 5,500 miles across the continent. Canada is America’s second most significant trading partner, after China, and no country imports more goods from the United States than its neighbor to the north. The two nations even share three of the four major professional sports leagues. As Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said regarding the United States when he first visited President Trump’s White House in February 2017, “No other neighbors in the entire world are a fundamentally linked as we are.” … [Read more...] about How Trump Is Torching America’s Relationship With Canada

Simmons claimed to have spent 27 years with the CIA, but Paul Nathanson, the assistant U.S. attorney prosecuting the case, said in a court filing that Simmons “never had any association whatsoever with the CIA.” (The CIA declined to comment – as a rule, it never confirms or denies agents – but said it is “working closely with the Justice Department on this matter.”) Instead, prosecutors say Simmons spent those 27 years doing just about everything else: He ran a limousine service, a gambling operation and an AIDS-testing clinic; worked for a hot-tub business, a carpeting company and a nightclub; and briefly played defensive back for the New Orleans Saints.

The timing of the summit, which will come directly after Trump attends a NATO meeting in Belgium, could also be problematic. The president has repeatedly attacked against the longstanding alliance, bemoaning how much the U.S. contributes financially relative to other nations. On Monday morning, he resumed his criticism, tweeting that the current arrangement is not “acceptable.” It’s hard to imagine the upcoming summit won’t be contentious, and that Trump won’t leave feeling even more embittered toward America’s allies. Putin will almost certainly attempt to seize on this vulnerability. On Friday, the Washington Post reported as much, quoting White House officials who are worried about how Putin is able to curry favor with Trump by complaining about “fake news” and the “deep state.” … [Read more...] about What’s Really at Stake When Trump Sits Down With Putin
