Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders speaks to a crowd at the Old National Events Plaza during a rally in Evansville, Ind., Monday, May 2, 2016. Indiana holds its primary Tuesday. (Jason Clark/Evansville Courier & Press via AP) MANDATORY CREDITWASHINGTON (AP) — Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders are all-in for Indiana as they try to stave off the growing aura of inevitability surrounding their opponents. But Donald Trump says his general election race against Hillary Clinton has "sort of already started." Clinton may not say as much, but she largely agrees.

"In view of the United States' state of mind today, that seems to be the most likely option," minister of state for trade Matthias Fekl told French radio when asked if the talks on a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, which began in 2013, could stop. Fekl's comments reflect deep suspicion in Europe that the deal will erode ecological and health regulations to the advantage of big business.
