Speaking in the Russian city of St Petersburg at an economic forum, Xi said there were strong trade and investment connections between China and the United States. “It’s hard to imagine a complete break of the United States from China or of China from the United States. We are not interested in this, and our American partners are not interested in this. President Trump is my friend and I am convinced he is also not interested in this,” Xi said in Chinese, interpreted into Russian and then translated into English by Reuters.
“The next thing I remember was Chris in the middle of them and they were beating her,” Melania said. “I didn’t think about it and went in.

The U.S. embassies in Israel, Germany, Brazil and Latvia are among those that have requested permission from Trump's State Department to fly the pride flag on their flagpoles and have been denied, diplomats said... During the Obama administration, the government granted blanket permission to embassies overseas to fly the pride flag during June.

NASA said it would open the International Space Station for "private astronaut missions of up to 30 days," with the first mission as early as 2020. As Boeing and SpaceX are developing capsules to carry humans to the ISS, the agency said the two companies will handle these private tourists and any services related to them. NASA will start with two private astronaut flights a year, with each trip lasting 30 days maximum each. Each trip will likely cost over $50 million, with NASA getting $35,000 for each night a private astronaut spends on the International Space Station.
...Trump managed 8% black support in 2016. And despite the GOP’s unpromising history, his campaign manager thinks the president can more than quadruple that number next year... This time around the Trump wager has more weight behind it, as his camp is hyping criminal justice reform as its hallmark achievement.
“At the end of the day, Democrats know this is the one voter base they cannot afford to have fractionalized,” Blackwell told RCP... Reviewing the last general election, it is clear that Trump didn’t win the black vote so much as Hillary Clinton failed to win enough of it...
Vice President Joe Biden enjoys solid support in the black community. A national Quinnipiac University poll in May found that 46% of black voters backed the front-runner in the crowded field... But if Trump thinks that talking about the 1994 crime bill will scare voters away from Democrats -- well, good luck with that, said Democratic Rep. Karen Bass. And good luck, she added, with taking credit for historically low unemployment and the new criminal justice reform law.
“I have never met an African American who feels that the reason they have a job is because of President Trump,” the chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus told RCP... And besides, she asked, how could anyone ever vote for a candidate who has made so many racist statements?... Perhaps a second term for Trump hinges on this silent black majority, assuming it exists...

...scientists now say new simulation models are suggesting that a rotating black hole, which contains a unique “mass inflation singularity,” may actually offer safe passage to another part of the galaxy - or a different galaxy altogether.
That’s according to lawyers who filed the class-action lawsuit on behalf of poor and often homeless boys who attended the Project Pierre Toussaint School over a period of more than a decade beginning in the late 1990s. A founder of the school, Fairfield University graduate Douglas Perlitz, is serving a nearly 20-year prison sentence for sexual abuse. The defendants included the university and religious organizations which financially supported the Haiti school. The lawsuit alleged they were negligent in supervising Perlitz and failed to prevent the abuse.

The U.S. economy added 75,000 new jobs in May, while the unemployment rate held steady at 3.6%, the Labor Department said Friday, far below the 185,000 estimated by economists, per a MarketWatch poll...
Police concerned that a possible serial killer is on the loose in Detroit began inspecting hundreds of vacant homes Friday for more victims, two days after the decomposed body of a third woman was discovered.
Mayor Mike Duggan predicted it would take two weeks to check 1,000 properties on Detroit's east side. Other crews then will board up the houses, a job that could last through July, before they're eventually demolished.
Hugh F. Culverhouse Jr. said the school was punishing him for urging students to consider other educational options in the state. He pledged last year to donate $26.5 million in all over four years -- in what would have been the largest donation in the school's 187-year history.
"I expected this response from UA," Culverhouse said of Friday's vote, according to NPR. "I will not allow my family's name to be associated with an educational system that advocates a state law which discriminates against women, disregards established federal law and violates our Constitution."
"We're excited... because podcasts offer an extraordinary opportunity to foster productive dialogue, make people smile and make people think, and, hopefully, bring us all a little closer together," the former US president said in a statement released by Spotify and Higher Ground.
The former first lady also said she was "thrilled to have the opportunity to amplify voices that are too often ignored or silenced altogether." ...
One of the Left’s most recent efforts to circumvent your right to keep and bear arms, as guaranteed by the Second Amendment, is to have your personal physician inquire about guns in the home, which he/she will then document on medical records that are increasingly becoming computerized, and, thus, available to government snoops via database sharing.
But according to Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership, a pro-firearms medical organization that “values the foundational tradition of firearm ownership in the lives of Americans,” you are under no obligation to tell your doctor anything about guns in your home — what kind, how they are kept, where they are kept, whether they are locked, etc...
