It's hard to imagine Soren Skou and President Donald Trump getting along terribly well. The softly-spoken boss of AP Moller-Maersk A/S is an eloquent champion of free trade and globalization.He would be. The world's biggest container-shipping line has done more than most to ease the flow of cheap goods from Asia to consumers in Europe and North America. That has lifted countless millions out of poverty and improved western lifestyles, but it's also held back industrial employment and wages in developed countries.Like it or not, Skou now finds his company's fortunes beholden to the instinctive protectionist living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. And it could hardly come at a more difficult moment for the Danish group.Maersk is in the midst of a massive structural overhaul that will focus the once unwieldy conglomerate on shipping and logistics. Its energy-related activities, which accounted for about one-quarter of sales, are being sold.It hasn't been plain-sailing. In 2017, … [Read more...] about Donald Trump Sinks a Shipping Giant

A week and a half before the 2016 election, Donald Trump's personal attorney paid a porn star named Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about her alleged relationship with the Republican candidate for president. Today, that arrangement is well on its way to becoming the most talked-about "hush agreement" in history, with potential legal and political implications for the president. Through his spokesman, Mr. Trump has denied having an affair with Stormy Daniels, and his lawyers are now threatening her with financial ruin, saying she has to pay $1 million dollars every time she violates her agreement to stay silent. But that didn't stop her from coming on 60 Minutes. Full Stormy Daniels interview transcript below: Anderson Cooper: For sitting here talking to me today you could be fined a million dollars. I mean, aren't you taking a big risk? Stormy Daniels: I am. Anderson Cooper: I guess I'm not 100% sure on why you're doing this. Stormy Daniels: Because it was very important to me to be … [Read more...] about Stormy Daniels describes her alleged affair with Donald Trump
Fancy a flutter and want odds on Donald Trump to be assassinated? Well, you won't get them.Around the time of Trump's inauguration as US president, there was a spike in searches for odds on his assassination. Some punters were even asking bookmakers on Twitter for odds on Trump to be killed before the end of his term.But they didn't get any odds. Most were ignored, some got replies say they do not offer odds on things like that. The Betfair account flat out told one guy "no" when he asked for odds on Trump to be assassinated at his inauguration. So why can't you get them?It's obvious, really: would you want to be the bookmaker known for offering odds on someone being murdered? It doesn't matter who it is, or how unpopular they are, it's pretty appalling taste.And it would be terrible marketing. Even for a bookie that courts controversy like Paddy Power, known for its close-to-the-bone adverts, creating a betting market on someone's death would be way too far."Even bookmakers have … [Read more...] about People are asking for odds on Donald Trump being assassinated
Adult movie actress Stormy Daniels last week purportedly denied having an extramarital affair with Donald Trump back in 2006, but she told a different story in 2011, according to a recently rediscovered magazine interview published Wednesday. InTouch magazine has just made public a 7-year-old interview with Daniels in which she claims that a sexual relationship with Trump began after she met the future president at a celebrity golf tournament in July 2006 in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. "I actually don't even remember why I did it but I do remember while we were having sex, I was like, 'Please don't try to pay me,'" Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, said in the 2011 interview. "And then I remember thinking, 'But I bet if he did, it would be a lot.'" In an article headlined "Donald Trump Cheated on Melania With Me," InTouch asserts that Daniels told the magazine that she and Trump — then the host of NBC's "The Apprentice" — had several more encounters over the next few … [Read more...] about Stormy Daniels described affair with Donald Trump in 2011 interview
