Former House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has been watching the controversy over health care play out from the sidelines, and he understands better than most how hard it is to forge a compromise within his party, even under the best of circumstances. Boehner is no fan of President Donald Trump, and declared last December that the election campaign had been “the most bizarre political year that we've seen in 100 years.” In the new Trumpian political era, Boehner is persona non grata among many Republicans he once led. While the former speaker’s comments will be taken with a grain of salt by diehards determined to repeal and replace the Obamacare later this year, Boehner on Thursday predicted that Trump and the Republicans would fall far short of their goal.

Norwegian is expanding its network of flights to the United States starting in mid-June after receiving long-awaited U.S. approval in December for its Irish subsidiary Norwegian Air International to operate routes across the Atlantic. Established U.S. carriers have been forced to consider restricted cheaper fares and redesigned cabins with more seats to win budget-conscious travelers to compete with Norwegian and rival Icelandic carrier Wow Air. Norwegian's $65 fares will be for a one-way ticket to UK and Irish destinations from smaller airports in New York state, Providence, Rhode Island, and Hartford, Connecticut.

At a time when President Donald Trump is signaling an American withdrawal from a leadership role in global affairs, Chinese President XI Jinping is increasingly willing to pick up the slack. The Chinese state media, in recent days, has been stressing what it characterizes as a major shift in Beijing’s posture toward the rest of the world. Last month, speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Xi mounted a strong defense of global trade at the same time that the Trump administration was promising to withdraw from a major trade deal among Pacific nations that notably excluded China.
