The annual gathering of government and industry elites will include a ‘progress report’ on the Trump administration. Will it get a passing grade?

The storm around Donald Trump is about to shift a few miles west of the White House, to a conference centre in Chantilly, Virginia, where the embattled president will be getting his end-of-term grades from the people whose opinion really matters: Bilderberg.

Justin Trudeau and Emmanuel Macron Make Bromantic Dreams Come True in Sicily

The annual Group of 7 summit meeting begins today in Taormina, a small town on the Sicilian coast, which is known to many as a hub for gay men in the 19th and 20th centuries. Many iconic gay writers – Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote, Oscar Wilde – have basked in the Mediterranean sun there over the decades.

Even the decidedly heterosexual Ernest Hemingway once described the town as being so pretty “it hurts to look” at. Now, Taormina will also will be known as the setting where two young, progressive and handsome politicians met and sparked an Internet frenzy.

JFK at 100: Trump comparisons fuel nostalgia for ‘Camelot’

The 35th US president’s legacy remains questionable, but his latest successor’s travails makes many yearn for a more eloquent leader

On 14 June 1956, then-senator John Fitzgerald Kennedy delivered the commencement speech at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. “Our nation’s first great politicians were also among the nation’s first great writers and scholars,” he said. “Books were their tools, not their enemies.”

More than 200 miles away in New York, a boy was celebrating his 10th birthday. His name was Donald John Trump.

Here are the hilariously awkward photos from Trump’s visit with Pope Francis at the Vatican

Pope Francis did not smile during President Donald Trump’s first minutes in the Vatican.

On Wednesday, Trump stopped by the seat of the Catholic Church as part of his first foreign trip, which also included visits to Saudi Arabia, Belgium, and Israel.

Throughout most of the meeting, Pope Francis maintained a serious face — and thus provoked a barrage of Twitter jokes about Trump’s first encounter with a Pope who has frequently criticized some of his policies .

The mood eventually lightened after the two exchanged gifts.

President Donald Trump may have disclosed highly sensitive information on the most secretive part of the US’s nuclear arsenal to the president of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte, in a phone call last month.

“We have a lot of firepower over there,” Trump said of the Korean Peninsula, according to a transcript of the call obtained by the New York Times and verified by White House officials.
