French presidential hopeful Marine Le Pen will headline a European gathering of eurosceptic and far-right leaders in Germany on Saturday as they seek to put on a united front in a year of high-stakes elections. Billed as a "counter-summit", organisers said the parties would use the event in the historic Rhine river city of Koblenz to set out their joint "vision for a Europe of freedom". National Front (FN) leader Le Pen will share the stage with Frauke Petry of the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD), Geert Wilders of the Dutch anti-Islam Freedom Party and Matteo Salvini of Italy's anti-EU Northern League.

By David Brunnstrom WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The new U.S. administration of President Donald Trump said on Friday its trade strategy to protect American jobs would start with withdrawal from the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade pact. A White House statement issued soon after Trump's inauguration said the United States would also "crack down on those nations that violate trade agreements and harm American workers in the process." The statement said Trump was committed to renegotiating another trade deal, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which was signed in 1994 by the United States, Canada and Mexico.
