Los líderes expresaron más interés en temas como la erradicación del problema de la cocaína, la lucha contra el tráfico de drogas y la crisis en Venezuela, que en el proceso de Paz en Colombia.

The abrupt dismissal of James Comey as director of the FBI followed by a report from The Washington Post regarding the President secretly disclosing highly classified information to Russian officials, is the latest chapter of a troubled - and still very short - story of Donald Trump in The White House.

[OP-ED]: The Comey firing reminds us of a bigger danger

English

I have tried to evaluate Donald Trump’s presidency fairly. I’ve praised him when he has appointed competent people to high office and expressed support for his policies when they seemed serious and sensible (even though this has drawn criticism from some quarters). But there has always been another aspect to this presidency lurking beneath the surface, sometimes erupting into full view as it did this week. Donald Trump, in much of his rhetoric and many of his actions, poses a danger to American democracy.
