2018 promises to be another year of challenges for President Donald Trump, the US and the world. DW's Carsten von Nahmen reports on what to watch out for in US politics this year.
President Donald Trump has harshly criticized Iran in a speech at the United Nations, saying Tehran must change its behavior or face further consequences. Trump administration officials have also upped their rhetoric.
Never before have the US midterm elections attracted so much interest abroad. Many in the EU hope that the vote will weaken US President Donald Trump. However, observers say, that could prove dangerous internationally.
The US president had previously voiced skepticism on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential race. His executive order comes before US congressional elections that are already tinged with fears of foreign meddling.
US President Donald Trump is applying his usual game of intimidation and concession in his dealings with Tehran. But unlike with North Korea, this approach will not bear fruit, writes Matthias von Hein.
