Melania Trump has insisted that her husband is a "gentleman" and that the women who allege that he sexually assaulted them are lying. She also said that lewd comments Donald Trump made about women that were caught on videotape were unacceptable but did not represent the man she knows. The Republican presidential nominee was guilty of "boy talk" but was "egged on" by TV host Billy Bush, she added. The tape prompted dozens of Republicans to drop their support for him. In the video, Mr Trump tells Mr Bush, who was then host of NBC's Access Hollywood, that he can force himself on women because he's a star. More»

Largely united in their dislike of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, some ultra-wealthy U.S. investors who play in conservative politics are warily weighing their choices, torn between third-party candidates, simply focusing on down-ballot contests or even voting for Democrat Hillary Clinton. As Clinton's lead over Trump has grown in opinion polls, some hedge fund managers who have traditionally donated big money to Republican presidential candidates see the congressional elections as their best hope. Stanley Druckenmiller, one of the best-performing hedge fund managers of all time, told Reuters he had recently given to Republican candidates for Congress in the hope of creating a “firewall” against Clinton’s economic policies, including more government control of healthcare and what he described as “astronomical disincentives” to invest.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has pledged that the United States and India would be "best friends" if he is elected and that he would boost intelligence sharing with India in the battle against Islamic militants. Trump spoke at an event sponsored by the Republican Hindu Coalition to raise money for victims of terrorism. It featured Bollywood-style performers who danced in colorful, traditional costumes. "If I'm elected president, the Indian and Hindu community will have a true friend in the White House, that I can guarantee you," said Trump, who noted that as a real estate developer he has two "massive developments" in India. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has developed a friendly relationship with President Barack Obama, a Democrat who wants Trump's opponent, Hillary Clinton, to win the Nov. 8 election. "We will defeat radical Islamic terrorism when I'm president. We will stand shoulder to shoulder with India in sharing intelligence and keeping our people safe mutually," said Trump. He called India a strategic ally and that "we will be best friends" if he wins the election. More»

The British economy will start to see deeper impacts from the Brexit vote over the coming six months with rising inflation and falling business investment, the consultancy firm Ernest & Young said on Monday. So far the U.K. has managed to resist economic shocks from the decision to the leave the European Union, but expectations of falls in consumer spending, higher inflation and lower levels of business investment paint a more dramatic outlook for the upcoming months and years. "We think over the next six months or so we will start to see the after effects of that vote coming to play," Martin Beck, senior economic advisor to the EY ITEM Club, told CNBC Monday. "The falling pound is going to push import prices up, will raise inflation, that will depress consumers' purchasing power and as Brexit becomes more of a hard reality, the business investment is likely to suffer because of the uncertainty around what will be the U.K.'s trade future relationships with the EU." According to EY's latest autumn forecasts, the U.K. should grow at a pace of 1.9 percent in 2016, but its GDP (gross domestic product) should reach only 0.8 percent in 2017. It is expected that consumer spending will be significantly hit by the Brexit vote, with a forecast growth of 2.5 percent for this year to 0.5 percent in 2017. More»

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said Monday Donald Trump's lewd comments about women, caught on tape in 2005, are the "textbook definition of sexual assault." The Vice President sat down for an exclusive interview with NBC's Chuck Todd in Las Vegas on Thursday, where he harshly criticized the Republican presidential nominee. According to Biden, what makes it "believable that he engaged in that kind of activity is not just that he said it, but his…instinctive abuse of power." Trump "is not a guy that should be representing the United States in any way," Biden said. The Vice President referenced his four granddaughters when he said he was "embarrassed that this is even being discussed." Biden, who as a senator introduced the Violence Against Women Act in 1990, was asked what the lesson is for young men, in a larger conversation about sexual assault. More»

Peter Thiel, known as the most contrarian soul in Silicon Valley, is doubling down on Donald J. Trump. The only prominent supporter of the Republican candidate in the high-tech community, Mr. Thiel is making his first donation in support of Mr. Trump's election. He will give $1.25 million through a combination of super PAC donations and funds given directly to the campaign, a person close to the investor said on Saturday. The donation puts the billionaire investor high on a very short list of big Trump contributors. One of the biggest donors is Robert Mercer of the hedge fund Renaissance Technologies. He and his daughter Rebekah Mercer have given $15.5 million in support of the Republican candidate's election, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Geoffrey Palmer, a Los Angeles developer, has donated $2 million. Mr. Thiel, who spoke at the Republican National Convention, apparently is unfazed by the storm around the candidate in the last week following the broadcasting of lewd conversations recorded by the syndicated program "Access Hollywood." The source, who requested anonymity, said the investor feels the country needs fixing, and Mr. Trump can do it. A spokesman for Mr. Thiel declined to comment. A spokesman for Mr. Trump did not immediately respond to a message for comment. The technology world has kept its wallet shut regarding Mr. Trump. By one accounting, the Trump campaign has raised $300,000 from tech companies; by another, only $19,000. The candidate and Silicon Valley began on a bad note, with Mr. Trump lashing out at Amazon, Apple and other large companies. His position on immigration is the opposite of the tech industry's, and he has shown little interest in other issues important to entrepreneurs. A meeting this month between tech industry advisers and Trump advisers was largely considered a bust. Silicon Valley has been forced to confront its lack of diversity in recent years, which would make support of Mr. Trump especially problematic. Brian Krzanich, the chief executive of Intel, had planned to hold a fund-raiser for Mr. Trump in June, but hours after the event became public, it was abruptly canceled. In a Twitter message, Mr. Krzanich said he did not intend to endorse either presidential candidate. Mr. Thiel, 49, emigrated from Germany as a child. He co-founded PayPal and Palantir, which focuses on pattern-finding software. His net worth is estimated at about $2.7 billion. Ever since Mr. Thiel was reported to be a California delegate for Mr. Trump, questions have swirled about why he had not given any of his wealth to help his candidate. More»

Britain and France are seeking to persuade the European Union on Monday to condemn Russia's devastating air campaign in Syria and pave the way for imposing more sanctions on President Bashar al-Assad's government. After a weekend of U.S.-led diplomacy that failed to find a breakthrough, EU foreign ministers met in Luxembourg to call for an end to the bombing of rebel-held east Aleppo, where 275,000 people are trapped, and to rush humanitarian aid into the city. "The pressure (on Russia) must be strong," France's Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said. "The more the European Union shows unity and determination, the more we can move forward in what is a moral obligation: to stop the massacre of the population of Aleppo," he told reporters. But the bloc is split over strategy towards Russia, its biggest energy supplier, with divisions about how harsh any criticism of Moscow should be and whether there was ground for also putting Russians under sanctions. Britain and France want to put another 20 Syrians under travel bans and asset freezes, suspecting them of directing attacks on civilians in Aleppo, in addition to the EU's existing sanctions list and its oil and arms embargo. Paris and London have also raised the prospect of sanctions on 12 Russians involved in the Syrian conflict, adding them to the EU's list of some 200 people that also includes three Iranians, diplomats told Reuters. British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who held talks with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday in London, said Russia's Aleppo bombing "shames humanity" and called Russia the Syrian government's "puppeteers." On Sunday in London, Britain and the United States said they were considering imposing additional sanctions on Assad and his supporters, without naming Russia. Chairing the Luxembourg meeting, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said there was a chance that ministers would agree to put more Syrians on the EU's list of people blocked from traveling to Europe or accessing money there. European Union leaders are expected to discuss Russia and possible new sanctions at a summit in Brussels on Thursday but Russia's closest EU allies such as Greece, Cyprus and Hungary are against. Austria also voiced its opposition on Monday. "The idea to have additional sanctions against Russia would be wrong," Austria's Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz told reporters. "We do not need a further escalation," he said. Germany also appeared cautious, with Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier rejecting adding punitive measures against Russia, although a German newspaper has cited sources saying that Chancellor Angela Merkel was in favor. The West imposed broad economic sanctions on Moscow over its 2014 annexation of Crimea and its support for rebels in Ukraine.  More»

Boris Johnson, who campaigned prominently for Britain to leave the European Union ahead of a June referendum, argued in favor of remaining in the bloc in an unpublished newspaper column two days before supporting Brexit, according to a newspaper report. Former London mayor Johnson, who became foreign affairs minister in the new government that took office after the referendum, wrote columns both for and against Brexit to clarify his thoughts on the issue, the Sunday Times reported. The report said his "remain" column argued that Britain should be intimately engaged with the EU, warned of an economic shock if it left, and suggested British financial contributions to the EU were a small price to pay for single market access. These points all contradict arguments that Johnson made on the campaign trail, and has continued to make. Johnson said he wrote the "semi-parodic" article backing Britain's continued membership of the EU to help confirm his belief that the country was better off leaving. "It is perfectly true that back in February I was wrestling with (the question) like I think a lot of people in this country," Johnson told Sky News, adding that he penned the pro-EU article after writing "a long piece which came down overwhelmingly in favor of leaving".

U.S. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has accused rival Hillary Clinton of being "pumped up" during their last debate, saying they should both be tested for drugs ahead of the next one. He also suggested the presidential race was looking like a "rigged election". The comments came in the wake of the publication of a recording in which he made obscene remarks, which sparked a string of sexual assault claims. Polls suggest Mr Trump is losing ground in some of the key battleground states. Speaking at a rally in New Hampshire, Mr Trump said Mrs Clinton had been "all pumped up" at the beginning of the last debate but could "barely reach her car" at the end. More»
