Conte, Italy's novice PM, completes G-7 baptism by fire

  Conte, Italy's novice PM, completes G-7 baptism by fire A month ago, he was a little-known law professor. On Saturday, Giuseppe Conte was heading home to Italy as a fully-fledged member of the most exclusive club of world leaders. And he may just have found a new ally in Donald Trump.After the political novice took over as premier on June 1, commentators were swift to question his ability to stand shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Trump and Germany's Angela Merkel at this weekend's G7 summit in Canada.

Trump saying he expects other EU members to follow Brexit was the first nonsense. Juncker ’ s reaction was nonsense as well. To announce your retirement, there is a danger that you ’ re a lame duck.

Jean-Claude Juncker has been called many things during his premiership of Luxembourg and presidency of the European Commission, but probably never what he says U.S. President Donald Trump called him at the weekend: "a brutal killer."

Juncker, who attended a meeting of leaders of the Group of Seven major powers in Canada last week, spoke about his encounter with Trump in a speech to Bavaria's regional assembly in Munich on Thursday.

"Trump told me last week: 'Jean-Claude — you are a brutal killer'," Juncker said. "It is the first time Luxembourg has become such a danger to the United States. I think he meant it as a compliment, but I am not sure."

DNA clears Golden State Killer suspect in 1978 Simi Valley slayings that put innocent man in prison

  DNA clears Golden State Killer suspect in 1978 Simi Valley slayings that put innocent man in prison When DNA offered a break in the four-decade manhunt for the notorious Golden State Killer, cold-case investigators across California wondered if the man who was arrested was behind their own unsolved crimes. One of the most high-profile cases involved a brutal double slaying in Simi Valley in 1978, which had been reopened recently when detectives discovered that the man who was convicted and sent to prison in the slayings was innocent.

Jean-Claude Juncker says he' s 'surprised' to see Farage in Brussels. EU Commission chief clashes with Farage, asking: 'Why are you here?' The Ukip leader told fellow MEPs ' you ' re not laughing now' and accused the EU of being 'a political project in denial'.

The G7 summit failed to heal a growing rift between the United States and the other powers, many of which Trump accuses of trade policies that unfairly disadvantage the United States.

European Union countries on Thursday unanimously backed a plan to impose import duties on 2.8 billion euros' ($3.3 billion) worth of U.S. products in response to U.S. tariffs on EU steel and aluminum, EU sources said.

"We cannot leave the tariffs unanswered. I'm not in a mood for war at all but I do not accept that we are dictated from elsewhere what we have to do in Europe," Juncker said. "This is an independent continent. Many have fought for this."
