Wider Tariffs Threaten to Take a Big Economic Toll

The Trump administration’s imposition of tariffs on neighbors and allies presents a growing risk for the broader U.S. economy, as the prospect of a tit-for-tat trade war mounts. The U.S. has imposed steel and aluminum tariffs on the European Union, Canada and Mexico, and they have pledged to return fire on a range of U.S. goods from motorcycles and bourbon to berries, grapes and blue jeans. The Trump administration has also taken steps toward imposing tariffs on industrial supplies and other goods imported from China and is considering an additional wave of tariffs on auto imports. The U.S. imports $2.36 trillion worth of goods a year. It imports about $29… Read More

French Authorities Open Antiterror Probe Into Paris Knife Attack

PARIS—A man stabbed a person to death in the streets of central Paris on Saturday evening and wounded four others, in an assault that French investigators were treating as a terrorist attack. Police shot and killed the man shortly after the attack began, French authorities said. Paris prosecutor François Molins said the man yelled “Allahu Akhbar!”—“God is great” in Arabic—during the stabbing, indicating the attack was the latest in a string of assaults committed by Islamist extremists in France.

T-Mobile US Inc. TMUS -1.78% added customers across its business in the latest quarter and raised its subscriber growth target for the year, showing how the company continues to boost revenue in a mature U.S. wireless market.

Putin’s Election Victory Magnifies Deep Divide in Russia’s Political Landscape

MOSCOW—Russian President Vladimir Putin’s victory in Sunday’s presidential election has left deep divisions in an opposition movement that had been buoyed in recent months by countrywide protests but failed to translate its momentum into a broad political movement. Anticorruption activist Alexei Navalny had brought tens of thousands of protesters onto the streets across Russia ahead of Sunday’s election—a vote that he was barred from participating in. But his call for a boycott of the election appears to have had little effect, as Sunday’s turnout surpassed that of the last election in 2012. At the same time, friction emerged Monday among opposition figures—some of whom accused the Kremlin of improprieties during… Read More
