    Africa’s richest man thinks Donald Trump is onto something with higher tariffs

    Aliko Dangote may not agree with president Donald Trump that higher tariffs would be good for the United States, but the Nigerian businessman thinks they could work for his own country. “If you look at what president Trump is doing right now—not that I agree with what he is doing because they are in a totally different economy to what we are—but if you look at where we are today, where there’s no protection, then you are not going to have any industries,” Dangote said to rousing applause. Dangote was on a panel with South Africa’s former finance minister Trevor Manuel and Irish tech billionaire John Collison.

It started in April, when the U.S. imposed the most onerous sanctions yet on allies of Putin.

    3 Very Popular Marijuana Stocks on My "Do Not Buy" List

    After selling medical cannabis domestically and exporting some of this product to foreign markets where medical weed is legal, Canada will open its doors to adult consumers in less than three months. With triple-digit sales growth expected from practically all cannabis stocks in the near future, it's no surprise that Wall Street and investors have pushed pot stock valuations into the stratosphere. In many instances, investors could be looking at high double-digit, or even triple-digit, forward price-to-earnings ratios as a result of legalizing adult-use cannabis.

    Trump’s interpreter could be grilled by Congress’s Gang of Eight about his chat with Putin

    Several members of the Gang of Eight, a group of US Congress members who are sworn to secrecy on intelligence matters, want to know more about what Donald Trump discussed with Vladimir Putin. Marina Gross, a veteran State Department interpreter, was the only other American in the room when Trump and Putin met for the two-hour private meeting in Helsinki on July 16. What exactly was discussed and agreed has become a critical issue, because the Russian government and the Trump administration appear to have different recollections of the meeting: Russia’s ambassador to the US said the two leaders made “important verbal agreements” on Syria and arms control, while the State Department and White House initially said no concrete deals were made.
