Recep Tayyip Erdogan was re-inaugurated as Turkey’s president. He appointed his son-in-law as finance minister, leading to a sharp fall in the value of the lira, and also dropped from his cabinet the minister considered the most market-friendly. The government fired another 9,000 police officers, 6,000 military personnel and hundreds of teachers for alleged links to terror groups.
雷杰普·塔伊普·埃尔多安（Recep Tayyip Erdogan）重新就任土耳其总统 。他任命女婿为财政部长，导致里拉急剧贬值，同时其无缘新内阁也被认为是最有利于市场的举动 。政府还开除了9000名警察、6000名军事人员和数百名教师，原因是他们涉嫌与恐怖组织有联系 。
Italy’s Europe minister, Paolo Savona, also rattled the markets, by declaring that Italy needed to be prepared for “all eventualities” concerning its membership of the euro.
意大利的欧洲事务部长保罗·萨沃纳(Paolo Savona)也引起了市场的恐慌，他宣称意大利需要为其加入欧元区的“一切可能”做好准备 。
At a NATO summit in Brussels, Donald Trump scolded European countries for failing to spend enough on defence. European NATO countries collectively contribute just 1.5% of their GDP to defence, well below NATO’s 2% guideline; only four European members meet that mark. America is by far the biggest spender, but since 2011 its spending has fallen in real terms by 15%, whereas NATO Europe’s has increased by nearly 10%. After battling with NATO, Mr Trump visits Britain, to be greeted by mass protests, and Helsinki, where he should get a warmer welcome when he meets Vladimir Putin.
在布鲁塞尔举行的北约(NATO)峰会上，唐纳德·特朗普(Donald Trump)指责欧洲国家没有在国防方面投入足够的资金 。欧洲北约国家的国防支出仅占其GDP的1.5%，远低于北约2%的标准;只有4个欧洲成员国达到了这一标准 。截至目前，美国是最大的防务开支国，但自2011年之后，美国的实际支出下降了15%，而欧洲的北约成员国的支出增长了约10% 。在与北约(NATO)一番博弈后，特朗普访问了英国，迎接他的是大规模的抗议活动；当他抵达赫尔辛基与弗拉基米尔·普京(Vladimir Putin)会面时，应该会受到更加热烈的欢迎 。
