Latin American Nations Rally Around U.S. in Break From Past

Latin American Nations Rally Around U.S. in Break From PastIn a quick succession of statements, eleven Latin countries followed Trump’s lead to recognize Juan Guaido, the leader of Venezuela’s national assembly, as the country’s interim president. The shift stems in part from the receding “pink tide” of left-leaning governments which has given way to administrations eager for closer ties with the U.S., and also from the sheer scale of the tragedy in Venezuela, said Benjamin Gedan, a former South America director at the White House’s National Security Council during the Obama administration.

UK foreign minister Hunt: Syria's Assad will be around for a while

UK foreign minister Hunt: Syria's Assad will be around for a whileBritish foreign minister Jeremy Hunt said on Thursday that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad will remain in place for “a while” thanks to support from Russia, even though Britain’s position was still that he remains a block to lasting peace. “The British long-standing position is that we won’t have lasting peace in Syria with that (Assad-led) regime, but regretfully, we do think he’s going to be around for a while,” Hunt told Sky News. Nearly eight years into a war that has displaced millions of Syrians, Assad has recovered control of most of the country with support from Russia, Iran, and Iranian-backed Shi’ite Muslim groups such as Lebanon’s Hezbollah.

Mitt Romney says Donald Trump has caused dismay around the world

Mitt Romney says Donald Trump has caused dismay around the worldMitt Romney, the former Republican presidential candidate and incoming US senator from Utah, sharply criticised President Donald Trump and suggested the US leader had caused dismay around the world. In a Washington Post essay published on Tuesday evening, Romney criticised a number of Trump's actions in December. "The appointment of senior persons of lesser experience, the abandonment of allies who fight beside us, and the president’s thoughtless claim that America has long been a 'sucker' in world affairs all defined his presidency down," he wrote. He added that "Trump’s words and actions have caused dismay around the world." The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Romney suggested that "on balance, (Trump's) conduct over the past two years … is evidence that the president has not risen to the mantle of the office." Romney is staking out an independent position two days before he takes office on Thursday. It is unclear whether Trump will face a serious challenge in 2020 to securing the Republican Party's presidential nomination. Trump last February endorsed Romney’s run for a Senate seat in Utah. Mitt Romney and Donald Trump, February 2, 2012 Credit:  Julie Jacobson/AP During the 2016 presidential campaign, Romney excoriated Trump as a "fraud" who was “playing the American public for suckers." Trump responded that Romney had “choked like a dog” in his unsuccessful 2012 campaign against Democratic President Barack Obama. Despite Romney’s prior criticism, after Trump won the presidency in November 2016, he briefly considered tapping Romney as secretary of state. In his essay on Tuesday, Romney said he "will speak out against significant statements or actions that are divisive, racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, dishonest or destructive to democratic institutions." Romney has strongly defended press freedom and challenged Trump's repeated attacks on some news outlets as an "enemy of the people." "The media is essential to our Republic, to our freedom, to the cause of freedom abroad, and to our national security. It is very much our friend," Romney wrote in an essay in November.
