Jack Daniel's Braces for Mexico Levies on Tennessee Whiskey

  Jack Daniel's Braces for Mexico Levies on Tennessee Whiskey Mexico’s tariffs of 25 percent on Tennessee whiskey, in retaliation for President Donald Trump’s levies on its steel and aluminum, could spell bad news for the distiller of Jack Daniel’s in one of its biggest growth markets. Brown-Forman Corp. said it’s hard to accurately forecast future sales growth with so much uncertainty surrounding the proposed tariffs. Canada and the European Union have also threatened to add duties to U.S. whiskey.The Louisville, Kentucky-based company referred to “concerns over potential retaliatory tariffs on American spirits" in its earnings report released Wednesday.

Trump saying he expects other EU members to follow Brexit was the first nonsense. Juncker ’ s reaction was nonsense as well. To announce your retirement, there is a danger that you ’ re a lame duck.

Jean-Claude Juncker has been called many things during his premiership of Luxembourg and presidency of the European Commission, but probably never what he says U.S. President Donald Trump called him at the weekend: "a brutal killer."

Juncker, who attended a meeting of leaders of the Group of Seven major powers in Canada last week, spoke about his encounter with Trump in a speech to Bavaria's regional assembly in Munich on Thursday.

"Trump told me last week: 'Jean-Claude — you are a brutal killer'," Juncker said. "It is the first time Luxembourg has become such a danger to the United States. I think he meant it as a compliment, but I am not sure."

Conte, Italy's novice PM, completes G-7 baptism by fire

  Conte, Italy's novice PM, completes G-7 baptism by fire A month ago, he was a little-known law professor. On Saturday, Giuseppe Conte was heading home to Italy as a fully-fledged member of the most exclusive club of world leaders. And he may just have found a new ally in Donald Trump.After the political novice took over as premier on June 1, commentators were swift to question his ability to stand shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Trump and Germany's Angela Merkel at this weekend's G7 summit in Canada.

Jean-Claude Juncker says he' s 'surprised' to see Farage in Brussels. EU Commission chief clashes with Farage, asking: 'Why are you here?' The Ukip leader told fellow MEPs ' you ' re not laughing now' and accused the EU of being 'a political project in denial'.

The G7 summit failed to heal a growing rift between the United States and the other powers, many of which Trump accuses of trade policies that unfairly disadvantage the United States.

European Union countries on Thursday unanimously backed a plan to impose import duties on 2.8 billion euros' ($3.3 billion) worth of U.S. products in response to U.S. tariffs on EU steel and aluminum, EU sources said.

"We cannot leave the tariffs unanswered. I'm not in a mood for war at all but I do not accept that we are dictated from elsewhere what we have to do in Europe," Juncker said. "This is an independent continent. Many have fought for this."
