And he has a history of publicly attacking the media and public figures he considers disloyal. It’s not hard to see why Doug Ford, the golden-haired former football player fighting to be the next premier of Ontario, has been compared to President Trump. “You’ve seen jobs lost — 300,000 manufacturing jobs — in 15 years,” Mr. Ford said at a packed rally in a windowless hall in a Toronto suburb last week. “Oh, … [Read more...] about Will a Canadian Donald Trump Become Ontario’s Leader?

After sitting out the fourth "Bourne" franchise entry -- 2012's "The Bourne Legacy" -- Julia Stiles gets back into the international intrigue game alongside Matt Damon for "Jason Bourne." But this time around, her CIA analyst, Nicky Parsons, has gone through some profound changes, with her former bosses worried they might have another Edward Snowden on their hands. Stiles talked to CBS News about playing action that's rooted in current events, plus what current political trends -- like the rise of Donald Trump -- terrify her. How soon after you heard that Matt Damon was doing another "Bourne" film did you find out you were coming back as well? You know, there had been eight or nine years since we made "Bourne Ultimatum," and consistently people would ask me, "When are you going to make another one?" I had kind of given up trying to predict that, so when I got the call that there was a script coming my way and I had a part in the movie, I was thrilled. I was also really excited … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Julia Stiles talks “Bourne,” Brexit and “disgusting” Donald Trump
If Donald Trump becomes president and the military followed his proposed order to kill terrorists' families, it could lead to a Nuremberg-like war crimes trial, former Defense Secretary William Cohen told CNN on Thursday. "The notion that we would attack and kill the families of terrorists is something that contravenes everything the United States stands for in this world of now disorder," said Cohen, a former Republican U.S. senator from Maine who served as Defense chief under President Bill Clinton. Cohen said "there's something called Nuremberg that we have to be concerned about" and warned it could lead the U.S. down a slippery slope. If "you have an order given by the commander in chief which violates every sense of law and order, international law and order, that would make any of those who carried out that dictum as such to be a violation of the international criminal code," he added. In December, Trump told Fox News that he would take out terrorists' families in order to … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Ex-Defense chief: Donald Trump’s ideas could lead to Nuremberg-like trial

If Donald Trump becomes president of the United States, the billionaire businessman promises to levy enormous tariffs on any Chinese products entering the country. "I would do a tax. And the tax, let me tell you what the tax should be...the tax should be 45 percent," Trump said in a meeting with the New York Times' editorial board on Thursday. The GOP front-runner justified his flat tariff proposal saying that "the only power that we have with China is massive trade." "I would tax China on products coming in," he said. "I would do a tariff, yes -- and they do it to us." And though the real estate mogul would identify himself as "a free trader," Trump added that "it's got to be reasonably fair." But even if the billionaire businessman won the 2016 election, his ability to influence such tariffs would be limited: The president cannot impose taxes -- only Congress can. And Trump's proposals could fly in the face of current WTO trade agreements, which discourage raising agreed-upon … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Donald Trump wants huge tariffs on Chinese exports to the U.S.

NEW YORK -- Vladimir Putin’s spokesman said Thursday the Russian president is really hoping for improved relations with the United States when Donald Trump becomes president, describing the two men as “very much alike” in how they see the world. Russia hopes “for their good personal relationship,” Dmitry Peskov said in an interview with The Associated Press. Peskov cautioned, however, that it will take time to restore trust in relations that are at their lowest point in decades. Suspicions about Trump’s relationship with Putin’s government dogged his presidential campaign, in large part because the United States accused Russia of hacking into Democratic Party email systems in an apparent effort to influence the outcome of the election. Peskov said Russian experts were in contact with some members of Trump’s staff during the campaign, but he reiterated that the Russian government and security agencies had nothing to do with the … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Vladimir Putin aide: Donald Trump, Russia leader “very much alike” in worldview
