Britain's economy minister Greg Clark said Thursday he was "reassured" by General Motors' plans for its European interests, including Britain's Vauxhall, amid talk of a takeover by France's PSA Group.

President Trump sparred with members of the press at the White House on Thursday, complaining about what he described as the media’s negative tone in its coverage of his administration — and, in particular, coverage of the recent leaks about the Trump campaign’s alleged contacts with Russia. “The leaks are absolutely real,” Trump said. Trump was asked by CNN’s Jim Acosta about the “disconnect” the president sees between the leaks and the news that comes out of them.
