Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told voters just outside Miami, "I have nothing to do with Russia"Donald Trump on Wednesday challenged Russian intelligence to hack into Hillary Clinton's emails, albeit insisting he had no relations with Russia as he tossed aside suggestions that Moscow was conniving to get him elected. The New York billionaire and Republican nominee for president used a sweeping news conference to undermine his Democratic rival, astonishingly imply that Vladimir Putin used a racial slur against President Barack Obama and to promise a heyday of US-Russian relations under a Trump presidency. "I have nothing to do with Russia," said the political neophyte, who frequently insists he will get Putin's respect and who has alarmed NATO allies by refusing to promise them unconditional support in the event of a hostile attack.

British Foreign Secretary Johnson gives his remarks during a stake-out at United Nations headquarters in New York U.S.British foreign minister Boris Johnson will meet his French counterpart in Paris on Thursday two weeks after Jean-Marc Ayrault called him a liar over his role in Britain's vote last month to leave the European Union. "This first trip to France by the British foreign secretary will offer an opportunity to discuss the most important international issues of the day on which we work closely with the United Kingdom, as well as our bilateral relationship, particularly in the areas of defence, counter-terrorism and border control," a French foreign ministry statement said. Johnson's portfolio does not include Britain's future negotiations on terms for leaving the EU, a task for which Prime Minister Theresa May has appointed a special minister, David Davis.
