U.S. President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un held the historic meeting between leaders of both countries on Tuesday morning in Singapore, carrying hopes to end decades of hostility and the threat of North Korea's nuclear programme.

"We will stand shoulder to shoulder with the prime minister and the people of Canada", said Doug Ford, the newly-elected anti-tax premier of Ontario and brother to the late crack-smoking mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford.
Economists generally view tariffs as inflationary, forcing consumer prices higher and eventually hurting the economy of the country that impose the tariffs.
"First of all, we'll try and see if we can prevent this". Trump's assertion that "Russia should be in this (G-7) meeting" became another distracting headline from the summit.
