POLITICS 06/05/2018 01:07 pm ET Updated 40 minutes ago The jurors wrote a note to the judge saying it's unlikely anyone's positions will change. By Ryan J. Reilly WASHINGTON ― A D.C. jury deciding the fate of three people facing felony charges in connection with destruction during protests against President Donald Trump’s inauguration appears to be deadlocked. The jury foreman wrote a note to the judge on Tuesday, saying jurors couldn’t reach a verdict on any count and that their views seemed unlikely to change. The government originally charged more than 200 people with felonies, but has yet to convict any defendant at trial. Forty-seven individuals are still facing felonies, including the three defendants currently on trial. After closing arguments last week, a juror passed a note to the judge saying she had seen graffiti in a bathroom stall reading “Google jury nullification,” referring to the concept of jurors voting … [Read more...] about Jury Likely Deadlocked On Felony Charges Against Trump Inauguration Protesters

Perhaps the pressure of trying to keep his lumbering campaign going is getting to François Fillon, or perhaps he has purposefully decided to take a leaf out of Donald Trump's book - he did become president against all the odds remember. Fillon was heralded as the "anti-Trump" after winning November's primary because the life-long politician was considered anything but populist, but the former PM is now developing some uncanny similarities with the ever-controversial and plain-spoken US president. Just as Fillon (now always described as "scandal-hit or "crisis-hit") launched a last-ditch bid to save his flagging campaign by holding a rally in Paris and appearing on prime time French television on Sunday night, he was “hit” by yet more controversy. During his interview on the France 2 TV channel Fillon angrily blasted French TV channels for falsely announcing the suicide of his wife Penelope last Wednesday morning.

What happens next? With Donald Trump inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States of America, The Local looks ahead at what impact his administration could have on Spain. Trade Spain is in a particularly vulnerable situation if Donald Trump makes good on his promises as a champion of protectionism. During his campaign he has voiced criticism of the Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership - or TTIP – a complicated trade deal between the US and the European Union on which talks started in 2013. Trump’s election will likely see it indefinitely stalled if not actually scrapped, which is bad news for Spain as one of the key beneficiaries of the deal. The US is Spain’s largest trading partner outside of the EU with exports from Spain representing €6.7 billion from January to June, according to data published in El Pais, with the balance of trade in the first half of this year in Spain’s favour. Spanish companies with large … [Read more...] about What the Donald Trump presidency could mean for Spain
Here's what happens when the internet gets its hands on a picture of a Paris poubelle that looks like Donald Trump. Almost three years ago to the day, Tweeter Thomas Regembal (@stom01) shared a picture of a street bin in Belleville, Paris, that he thought looked amusing, presumably because the cardbox looked like a face. The tweet, embedded below, amassed a mere 19 retweets over the past three years. But when the internet realized the bin bore an unmistakeable resemblance to US President Donald Trump, the same photo has been plastered across websites the world over. Photoshop users have since had their fun with the image, spurred on by the likes of social news aggregation site Reddit and The Poke. Here are some of the best images of the Donald Trump Paris poubelle, that we couldn't resist sharing. Mount Trumpmore.
