UK economy slowed since Brexit referendum in 2016 - Diplomatic spat threatens business ties with Russia
Chief Brexit negotiator David Davis wrote in a letter to Prime Minister Theresa May that he no longer wanted to be her "conscript." His move comes days after May announced she'd united her Cabinet behind an EU exit plan.
The US president listed the EU, China and Russia as economic "foes" in an interview. He also said he has a "big problem" with Germany over its contributions to NATO as well as its pipeline deal with Russia.
Germany's foreign minister, Heiko Maas, has said that Europe can no longer rely on the United States. His comments reflected the unease of Washington's traditional allies surrounding the Trump administration.
The US said it would impose "unprecedented financial pressure on Iran." The refusal to grant EU businesses an exemption for Iran sanctions pushes Europe and the US further down a collision course over ties to Tehran.
