    EU leaders consider new sanctions against Russia

    Hillary Clinton plots mop-up of Trump’s global mess

    Hillary Clinton’s campaign is already looking past Nov. 8 and is plotting out what she will do on the international front to reassure allies, deter enemies and otherwise repair the damage to America’s reputation caused by Donald Trump.

    Mark Rutte tries to keep a lid on ‘Nexit’

    AMSTERDAM — As Brexit negotiations approach there’s a distinct chill in the air between Britain and the Netherlands, and it’s not just because Theresa May can’t hope to replicate the bromance between her predecessor David Cameron and Dutch leader Mark Rutte.
