    Donald Tusk wants to bury the European Dream

    Europe is coming around to Donald Tusk’s way of thinking. The European Council president has been spreading a message that until recently would have sounded surprisingly Euroskeptic coming from the head of an EU institution: We need to let go of the “European” dream — at least as it has usually been defined since the founding of the Union....

    Unbearable angst of Czech being

    PRAGUE — Today’s Czechs are healthier, wealthier and safer than they have ever been. The economy grew at a robust 4.2 percent last year and the country boasted the lowest unemployment rate in the European Union. The EU’s problems, from a possible British exit to the eurozone and migration crises, have almost no tangible impact on the...

    Why this Russian wants to give Donald Trump 100,000 rubles

    NIZHNY TAGIL — Felix Nikolaevich Kolsky knows war. His grandfather had five sons, and only one came back from World War II. Kolsky’s father was one of the ones who didn’t make it home, and Felix was born in his absence, shortly after he went off to the front in 1941. “My generation never recovered,” he says of the 27 million people...

    Paul Manafort’s wild and lucrative Philippine adventure

    When Paul Manafort met Ferdinand Marcos in the 1980s, each had something the other wanted. Marcos, then in his third decade as leader of the Philippines, had developed a reputation in Washington as a stalwart ally in the fight against communism. But he was facing rising concerns about rampant corruption, plundering of public resources and human...

    What exactly would it mean to have Trump’s finger on the nuclear button?

    Donald Trump, December 15, 2015: “The biggest problem we have is nuclear—nuclear proliferation and having some maniac, having some madman go out and get a nuclear weapon. That’s in my opinion that is the single biggest problem that our country faces right now.” Hillary Clinton, June 2, 2016: “This is not someone who should ever have the...

    Romney: Trump will cause ‘trickle-down racism’

    Mitt Romney argued on Friday that Donald Trump’s rhetoric could make racist and misogynistic sentiments more permissible in America. The 2012 Republican nominee hammered the presumptive Republican nominee’s past comments on race, saying on CNN’s “The Situation Room” that if Trump were to become president, his words would pose an...

    Why Obama waited

    Democrats are finally getting their dream ticket, Clinton-Obama, eight years after many expected — and months later than some on Clinton’s campaign would have hoped. From the start of the 2016 cycle, two things were clear: First, Barack Obama was fully behind Hillary Clinton and more than happy to raise her spirits with cheerful...

    Plan for life after Vladimir Putin

    Europe faces important milestones in the next few weeks. Will the European Union continue sanctions against Russia? Will Britain withdraw from the union? Both decisions have the potential to weaken the European project, and could alter, whether directly or indirectly, the Continent’s relations with Russia. At this crucial juncture, Europe...

    Inside the bitter last days of Bernie’s revolution

    There’s no strategist pulling the strings, and no collection of burn-it-all-down aides egging him on. At the heart of the rage against Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party, the campaign aides closest to him say, is Bernie Sanders. It was the Vermont senator who personally rewrote his campaign manager’s shorter statement after the...

    Trump and the world: What could actually go wrong

    To hear Hillary Clinton tell it, letting Donald J. Trump anywhere near the Oval Office would be tantamount to inviting a nuclear apocalypse. The address she delivered from San Diego Thursday opened up a new front in the 2016 campaign: whether Trump can be trusted as leader of the free world.
