    'Fox News Sunday' host Chris Wallace told network anchor Shep Smith on Friday that it looks to him like Donald Trump is effectively the president already. Wallace said that Trump has done so much more than president-elects generally do before their term begins that he is giving off the impression that Barack Obama has retired early. "He’s almost more the president than the president is," Wallace said. "He’s not waiting until he actually takes the oath of office on January 20th," he concluded. "He’s kind of the Commander-in-Chief already." Trump visited victims of last week's terrorist attack at Ohio State...

    FRANCE has demanded an explanation from Washington of a report that the US swept up 70 million French telephone records and text messages in its global surveillance net, even recording certain private conversations. The fallout prompted a phone call yesterday from US President Barack Obama to French President Francois Hollande, and, the White House said, an acknowledgement by the US leader that the episode raised "legitimate questions for our friends and allies" about how surveillance capabilities are employed. Mr Hollande's office issued a strongly worded statement afterward expressing "profound reprobation" over US actions it said intruded on the private lives...

    LONDON (AFP) - Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, has complained that his future subjects have "tortured" him over his relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles, a newspaper reported.

While at first refusing to discuss his relationship with Parker Bowles, Charles is pressed further and then snaps: "I thought the British people were supposed to be compassionate. I don't see much of it,"...
