Donald Trump says tax plan is worth $4,000 to typical household, but doesn't mention it could take eight years

President Donald Trump said his overhaul of the US tax code would bring back offshore profits providing pay rises worth $4000 to the typical American household, as he made his case to an audience of truckers in Pennsylvania on Wednesday night. Mr Trump's tax overhaul has taken on huge importance as other elements of his legislative agenda, such as repealing Obamacare, have become bogged down in Congress. His tax plans have been criticised for offering tax breaks to the super-rich but Mr Trump insists his proposals would stimulate the economy, creating jobs and driving wages higher.

NATO launches Black Sea force as latest counter to Russia

By Robin Emmott CRAIOVA, Romania (Reuters) - NATO launched a new multinational force in Romania on Monday to counter Russia along its eastern flank and to check a growing Russian presence in the Black Sea following the Kremlin's 2014 seizure of Crimea.

NRA backs down over possible ban on 'bump stocks' 

The National Rifle Association, America's biggest gun lobby group appeared to backtrack on Sunday on calls for regulation of deadly "bump stocks", as the country's gun control debate returned to familiar impasse.

"We don't believe bans ever worked on anything," said Chris Cox, the NRA's executive director, when asked whether the organisation would consider a ban on bump stocks following the Las Vegas massacre which left people 58 dead. The row-back came as police in...
