Will the U.S. resume negotiations with the Taliban?

Peace talks with the Taliban are dead. Where does that leave Afghanistan?

As like, the most violent, lacking infrastructure and governance and horrible treatment of women, place in the world…except, President Trump really wants to end an 18-year long war. And John Bolton is no longer national security advisor so it's gonna be easier for Trump pull off. I suspect there'll be more negotiations.

Brexit update: Is the U.K. still on track to exit the EU by October 31st?

Well, not really. I mean, parliament actually, through legislation said that Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister, has to ask for extension.

Trump gets his deal – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced yesterday that Democrats will back the USMCA, the US-Mexico-Canada trade agreement that will replace the North American Free Trade Agreement. Crucially, the bill will also have support from the nation's largest labor union. This is a major political victory for President Trump, who promised he would close this deal, but it's also good for Pelosi: it shows that the Democrats' House majority can still accomplish big things even as it impeaches the president.
