A special relationship
Jair Bolsonaro, Brazil’s populist president, visited Donald Trump at the White House. Mr Bolsonaro has been described as the “Trump of the Tropics” for his delight in offending people.

Speaker’s truth to power
Citing a convention dating back to 1604, John Bercow, the Speaker of Britain’s House of Commons, intervened in the Brexit process, again, ruling out a third vote on the withdrawal deal unless there was a change in substance to its terms. Parliament therefore could not have another “meaningful vote” on leaving the European Union before this week’s European Council meeting, where Brexit is on the agenda. Theresa May asked the council for a three-month extension of the Brexit deadline, to June 30th.
英国下议院议长约翰·伯考(John Bercow)援引1604年的一项公约，再次介入英国退欧进程，排除了就退欧协议进行第三次投票的可能性，除非协议条款发生实质性变化 。因此，在本周的欧洲理事会会议之前，英国议会无法就退欧进行另一次“有意义的投票” 。特蕾莎·梅要求议会将英国退欧的最后期限延长三个月，至6月30日 。

He could get used to this
Donald Trump vetoed the first bill of his presidency, a resolution from Congress to overturn his declaration of a national emergency on the border with Mexico. The resolution had passed with some support from Republicans, worried about the precedent Mr Trump is setting for future presidents, who might also declare an emergency to obtain funding for a project that Congress has denied them.
