Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hits back at Trump after he misquotes her in tweet defending him against impeachment
News ImageAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez called Donald Trumps bluff after he misquoted her in a tweet defending himself against growing calls for his impeachment.The Democratic congresswoman told broadcaster ABC that the Democrats have a very real risk of losing the presidency to Donald Trump if the party does not have a candidate in 2020 who will fight for true transformational change in people's lives.In a tweet posted on Sunday, Mr Trump used an edited version of Ms Ocasio-Cortezs quote to hit back at those calling for his impeachment.'I think we have a very real risk of losing the Presidency to Donald Trump,'" tweeted Trump, citing Ms Ocasio-Cortez's quote. I agree, and that is the only reason they play the impeach card, which cannot be legally used!In response, the New York congresswoman tweeted: Mr. President, youre from Queens. You may fool the rest of the country, but I'll call your bluff any day of the week.Opening an impeachment inquiry is exactly what we must do when the President obstructs justice, advises witnesses to ignore legal subpoenas & more.She concluded her response with Bye and a waving-hand emoji.The back-and-forth between Mr Trump and Ms Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter comes as dozens of Democrats call to impeach the president, even as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has quashed the prospect of impeachment for now.In her interview with ABC's Jonathan Karl, Ms Ocasio-Cortez said Mr Trump's recent Oval Office meeting with George Stephanopoulos was the latest indication of why Mr Trump should be held accountable to the rule of law. During the meeting, the US president acknowledged he would consider accepting information on his political opponents from a foreign government.I think every day that passes, the pressure to impeach grows and I think that it's justifiable, I think the evidence continues to come in, she said.I believe that with the president now saying he is willing to break the law to win re-election, that transcends partisanship, it transcends party lines, and this is now about the rule of law in the United States of America.Her sentiment is reflective of a recent spike among Democratic voters pushing for impeachment. A poll released on Sunday from NBC News and the Wall Street Journal found that 48 per cent of Democratic voters back impeachment, up from 30 per cent last month. But the poll found that the nation remains largely divided on the issue, with Republican and independent voters opposing impeachment hearings.Mr Trump's tweet quoting the New York congresswoman came towards the end of a busy Sunday for him on Twitter. This saw him sending Father's Day wishes even to his worst and most vicious critics, of which there are fewer and fewer, sharing a video of lawmakers and pundits doubting his 2016 campaign and congratulating golfer Gary Woodland for winning the US Open.The US president also thanked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for inaugurating Trump Heights, Israel's newest town on the Golan Heights. The town is located in the same area that Trump recognised in March as being part of sovereign Israel.Ms Ocasio-Cortez also commented on the candidacy of former vice president Joe Biden on Sunday, saying that he still has some work to do to change his behaviour towards women.Asked whether she believes Mr Biden understands some of the concerns that have been raised regarding his behaviour, she said: I think that's something that he has to kind of show the electorate."You know, I think that it is an issue where there is a struggle; I'll be completely honest.When asked whether Mr Trump would be re-elected if the Democrats do not nominate someone who identifies as a true progressive, Ms Ocasio-Cortez warned against electing a president who advocated for half-measures, such as someone who would not fight for a $15 minimum wage, a tuition-free college initiative or advancing women's rights. She reiterated her concern of what that would mean for 2020.I think we have a very real risk of losing the presidency, she said.Washington Post

Buttigieg: There's Definitely Been Gay Presidents Before
News ImageReuters / John Sommers IIIf he wins in 2020, Pete Buttigieg is pretty sure he won't be the first gay president. Speaking to Axios on HBO, the South Bend mayor was asked how he's going to respond to people who attack him during the campaign for being too young, too liberal, or too gay to be the American president. We have had excellent presidents who have been young, he said. We have had excellent presidents who have been liberal. I would imagine we've probably had excellent presidents who were gaywe just didn't know which ones. He went on to say that it was statistically almost certain that there had been gay presidents, but he couldn't name names. My gaydar even doesn't work that well in the present, let alone retroactively, he lamented.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Since When Are Liberals against Investigating the CIA and FBI?
News ImageWas there ever a time when Americans had unquestioning faith in federal law-enforcement agencies? Maybe in the days before Vietnam and Watergate, most citizens did believe that those in charge of the nations fate could be trusted. Before World War II, the FBIs formidable public-relations machine actually produced a popular radio and television program lauding its efforts in peace and war. After the war, when the CIA became the countrys first full-time foreign-intelligence agency, few Americans understood much about what it was doing, and what little they did know was colored by the governments propaganda efforts.But ever since the upheaval of the late 1960s and early 1970s seemed to make cynicism about government our new national pastime, the notion that the intelligence community is above politics has been as outdated as the adulation once accorded to J. Edgar Hoover. Its in that context that we should understand the recent debate about whether its appropriate to scrutinize the CIA and FBIs role in the origins of the Russia probe. Though Democrats are now treating criticism of federal law enforcement as beyond the pale, their newfound faith is every bit as partisan as Republicans newfound skepticism. A sober look at the history of the past few decades reveals that, to paraphrase Clausewitz, in Washington, intelligence has always been a matter of politics by other means.Attorney General William Barrs decision to launch an investigation into the origins of the Russia investigation has caused some predicable anger among Democrats and other Trump-administration critics. This discomfort stems from what they regard as an attempt to flip the narrative from Trumps alleged collusion with Russia to a dubious decision by the FBI to begin spying on the political opponents of Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration.Given the failure of the investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller to prove the collusion allegations, Barrs attempt to determine whether the unprecedented probe of a presidential campaign was an abuse of power seems reasonable. But Barrs decision is a huge problem for Democrats who are hoping to pursue the impeachment of Trump by picking up the case that Mueller failed to make after two years of effort.So we saw CNN crime-and-justice reporter Shimon Prokupecz this week telling host Don Lemon that it is troubling that the Department of Justice is questioning the work of CIA agents. You don't do this, Prokupecz said. The CIA kind of operates in their own world. Indeed the CIA does, but that never stopped Democrats or the press from going all out to probe its activities as long as said activities were perceived to further their opponents political agenda.Prokupecz and the House Democrats who are rushing to the barricades to defend the actions of former CIA director John Brennan at the beginning of the Mueller probe are acting as if the agencys reputation has never before been called into question. Some of them may be too young to have experienced the political ferment of the 1970s and80s, in which congressional committees led by Democrats such as Frank Church and Otis Pike conducted far-reaching investigations that embarrassed the intelligence establishment. But surely they have some memory of the debates about intelligence after the 9/11 attacks and the heated run-up to George W. Bushs Iraq War. The only difference between those episodes and this one is that the political parties have switched sides.In the past, it was Republicans defending the FBI and the CIA against Democrats charges that these agencies were out of control. But since the summer of 2016, when the intelligence establishment seemed to join forces to raise alarms about Russian meddling in the presidential election and, more important, to raise concerns about untrue allegations of Trump-campaign collusion in that meddling, Democrats have acted as if Langley and Quantico are beyond reproach.Once Trump started criticizing the intelligence agencies consensus about Russians election interference, and then after it became known that the FBI and CIA had begun probing his campaign in the summer of 2016, Democrats became unstinting in their defense of the agencies. By contrast, Republicans who had been stalwart CIA and FBI defenders suddenly became bitter critics, demanding transparency and sometimes floating the same sort of conspiracy theories about the intelligence communitys activities that used to be the province of the Left.Sensible people of either party will always seek to mix deference to the intelligence communitys mission, which often requires a fair degree of secrecy, with an understanding that all government officials and agencies must be kept on a tight leash lest they abuse the awesome power vested in them.To those who have followed past controversies involving the FBI and CIA, it should seem entirely plausible that some federal law-enforcement agents could let their distaste for Trump get the better of them. That Democrats no longer care and Republicans suddenly do testifies to the fact that in Washington, most things always boil down to politics.

Biden Leads Pack of Democratic Hopefuls on Beat-Trump Factor
News Image(Bloomberg) -- Joe Biden leads in the early Democratic nomination race for 2020, helped by a sense that the former vice president is best placed to beat President Donald Trump, a new CBS Battleground Tracker poll shows.Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, and Pete Buttigieg are among the candidates that likely Democratic voters are at least considering in 18 states that will shape the initial 2020 fight, the poll shows.The CBS News/YouGov poll shows Biden had support of 31% of Democratic primary voters with three U.S. senators next: Warren of Massachusetts at 17%, Sanders of Vermont at 16%, and Harris of California at 10%. It was one of a number of recent national or state polls that showed Warren, a former Harvard law professor, in second place.Bidens top-preference numbers would translate today into an estimated delegate standing of 731 delegates to Warrens 355 and Sanders 317, CBS said.Democrats were split on whether the partys message should emphasize returning the country to how it was before Trump, or pursue a more progressive agenda than they had under President Barack Obama. Among voters who want a more progressive direction, Biden is in much tighter competition with Warren and Sanders.Looking ahead to the general election, Democrats think swing voters -- in the abstract -- might be more favorable toward a white, male, moderate candidate, the poll showed.The survey of 16,624 registered voters in 18 states was conducted May 31 through June 12. The margin of error was plus or minus 1.5%.To contact the reporter on this story: Ros Krasny in Washington at rkrasny1@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Craig Gordon at cgordon39@bloomberg.net, Mark NiquetteFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Gun Fact: The Glock 18 Fires 1,200 Bullets Per Minute
News ImageThe Glock 18 accepts typical Glock magazines, from ten to seventeen rounds, but a handgun with a rate of fire of 1,200 rounds a minute can empty a standard pistol magazine in a blink of an eye. In order to help feed the Glock 18s voracious appetite the company released thirty-three round magazines. These longer magazines extend far past the magazine well, making the gun difficult to conceal but double available firepower.In December 2003, soldiers of the U.S. Special Operations Command captured the Ace of Spades himself, Saddam Hussein. The former Iraqi president, on the run since the capture of Baghdad, had appeared in a deck of playing cards with the profiles of other fugitive war criminals and naturally was the top card. Hussein, bedraggled and bereft, was armed with one of the rarest of handguns: the Glock 18, the full auto Glock.(This first appeared several months ago.)In February 1980 the Austrian Army issued a requirement for a new handgun. Gaston Glock, a knifemaker who made knives and bayonets for the army, decided to try his hand at the gun manufacturing business. After buying and trying many types of existing handguns, consulting with firearm specialists to see what they would like in a handgun, and a presumably a great deal of trial and error, Glocks first pistol, the Glock 17, won the army contract for twenty thousand pistols.

Ms Ocasio-Cortez's staff has been made aware of the incident, according to Mr Ryan.Ms Ocasio-Cortez has become one of the most prominent politicians in Washington since her surprise primary victory last year during the 2018 midterm elections, and represents a surging progressive arm of the Democratic Party.In the process, the 29-year-old has been on the receiving end of death threats since taking office, leading Capitol Police, for instance, to provide threat assessment training for her staff.

AOC: Hyde Amendment Is about Income Inequality Not Abortion
News ImageRepresentative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) on Sunday praised former vice president Joe Biden for his recently announced opposition to the Hyde amendment and said that her own opposition to the prohibition on the direct federal funding of abortion is rooted in her concern about income inequality.Im encourage by the fact that he is now against the Hyde Amendment, Ocasio-Cortez told ABCs Jonathan Karl when asked about Bidensrecent reversalon the issue.Ocasio-Cortez, who launched a petition over the weekend to build public support for the amendment's repeal, went on to explain that the direct federal funding of abortion is necessary to protect the abortion rights of incarcerated pregnant women.Reproductive health care for incarcerated women should be guaranteed as it is with all women in the United States, so I think it really depends, said the freshman New York lawmaker. More from her remarks:&> And thats really what the Hyde amendment is really about. The Hyde amendment isnt about abortion per se. The Hyde amendment is truly about equality of healthcare and healthcare access for low income women and women of color and women that get caught in our mass incarceration system. And so the Hyde amendment is about income inequality and its about womens healthcare in a system of income inequality. So I think that we need to repeal it.After maintaining support for the Hyde amendment throughout his decades-long career in politics, Biden reversed himself last month in response to pressure from abortion-advocacy groups.If I believe health care is a right, as I do, I can no longer support an amendment that makes that right dependent on someone's ZIP code, Biden said at a Democratic National Committee gala in Atlanta, citing the restrictive abortion bills recently passed in a number of southern states as the impetus for his reversal.Biden's high-profile reversal on the Hyde amendment prompted an outpouring of public statements from his 2020 Democratic primary opponents about the need to repeal the amendment, which has been added as a rider to federal spending bills in the decades since the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision.

In historic shift, Vatican to consider married priests for Amazon region
News ImageA Vatican document on Monday said the Church should consider ordaining older married men as priests in remote areas of the Amazon, a historic shift which some say could pave the way for their use in other areas where clergy are scarce. The recommendation, contained in a working document prepared by the Vatican for a synod of bishops from the Amazon scheduled for October, also called for some kind of "official ministry" for women in the area, although it did not elaborate. It was the most direct mention ever in a Vatican document of the possibility of a married priesthood, albeit limited, and a greater ministerial role for women in one area of the world.

Father's Day 2019: Paganism, roses and how the campaign to celebrate dads was won
News ImageFather's Day, the official calendar date to honour our wonderful dads and celebrate fatherhood, is here. Recognised eachJune, the daysees children around the world present their dads with cards and gifts as a thank you for all they do. But when did the first observance ofFather's Day take placeand who helped establish the annual celebration of paternal figures? From the history behind the celebration, to the more recent commercialisation, here is everything you need to know about Father's Day. When is Father's Day 2019? Fathers Day is held every year on the third Sunday of June; this yearFathers Day fallson Sunday, June 16in the UK. Typically, fathers are showered with cards and presents on Fathers Day, with some families celebratingtogether by going on days out. Younger children also tend to make handmade gifts for their fathers at school and extracurricular clubs, includingdrawings, paintings or cards. As society and family structures have changed, some people now celebrate their stepfathers on Fathers Day. In recent yearsthere have been calls for a Stepfather's Day, however no such day has been officially discussed or introduced. Father's Day falls on June 16 this year Credit: E+ The history of Father's Day The first events in recognition of fatherhoodtook place in the US and followed Anna Jarvis' first celebration ofMother's Day in 1908, as well as theearlier observations of Mothering Sunday in the UK. Grace Golden Clayton, from Fairmont, West Virginia, was the woman behind the first event to celebrate fathers in 1908. Just over a year prior to this event, the Monongah Mining Disaster took place in December 1907, with the explosion killing 361 men. Of these fatalities, 250 were fathers. In honour of the one thousand children who lost their fathers, Clayton encouraged her pastor, Rev. Robert Thomas Webb, to hold a service at the Williams Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church South. Clayton missed her own father terribly, after he passed away in 1896, so she chose to honour the lives loston July 5, 1908, the closest date to his birthday. While Clayton was responsible for the first recognition of fatherhood and the paternal bond, her work didn't directly encourage the creation of Father's Day. The memorial service was never promoted outside the town of Fairmont and the service was overshadowed by the significant Independence Day celebrations held a day beforehand. Yet the idea was also picked up on in the following year, whenSonora Smart Dodd started her quest to honour fathers in the same way as mothers. Dodd, born in Arkansas in 1882, was one of six children and at the age of seven, she moved toWashington with her family. When she was 16 years old, her mother, Ellen Victoria Cheek Smart, died after givingbirth to her sixth child, leaving her father, William Jackson Smart, a farmer and Civil War veteran, as a single parent. After listening to a Mother's Day sermon at theCentral Methodist Episcopal Church in 1909, Dodd felt thatfathers deserved equal recognition.With the local YMCA and the Ministerial Association of Spokane,Dodd began a campaign to have the day officially recognised. The first such 'Fathers Day'was held at the YMCA in Spokane on June 19, 1910, with a number of towns and cities across America later following suit. Support for Fathers Day quickly increased throughout the US and in1924President Calvin Coolidge pressured state governments to mark the celebration. President Lyndon Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honouring fathers in 1966, making the third Sunday in June Fathers Day. Six years laterPresident Richard Nixon signed it into law, establishing the day as a national holiday though in the UK it does not enjoy this status. The move came after a campaign by a number of public figures, includingSenator Margaret Chase Smith, who in 1957 wrote to Congress: Either we honour both our parents, mother and father, or let us desist from honouring either one. But to single out just one of our two parents and omit the other is the most grievous insult imaginable. Dodd's message later spread to other countries across the globe and it is thought that Britain began celebrating Father's Day after World War II. Today, the celebration of fathers has become an important commercial event for high street shops and online retailers, with promotions for the best gifts and cards appearing in the build up to the day each year. Fathers Day around the world While in the UK fathers can expect, at best,breakfast in bed andhandmade card and, at worst, the day to be completely ignored, elsewhere the festival is done a little differently. In Germany, Fathers Day is called Vatertag with it also being referred to as Mnnertag, which means mens day. The celebration falls on the Thursday 40 days after Easter. In certain regions it is traditional for groups of men to go into the woods with a wagon of beer, wines and meats. Heavy drinking is common and, according to official statistics, traffic-related accidents spike on this day. In Australia, Fathers Day falls on the first Sunday of September, which is their first Sunday of Spring, while in Croatia, they observe Roman Catholic tradition and celebrate fathers on March 19, Saint Josephs Day. In China, Fathers Day used to be celebrated onAugust 8 as the Chinese for eight is ba, while a colloquial word for father is ba-ba so the eighth day of the eighth month sounds similar to daddy. The day has since been moved to the third Sunday of June, in line with the UK and US. In France, the day was introduced in 1949 for commercial reasonsby lighter manufacturerFlaminaire. Inspired by the US' day of celebration,they created a new advert with the slogan 'Nos papas nous l'ont dit, pour la fte des pres, ils dsirent tous un Flaminaire'('Our fathers told us, for father's day, they all want a Flaminaire').Three years later an official decree was made to recognise the day. Most countries celebrate Fathers Day on the third Sunday in June including the UK, USA, Mexico, Ireland, France, Greece, China and Japan. Howevernot all countries celebrate it then. In Brazil, Fathers Day falls on the second Sunday of August and this day was chosen in honour of Saint Joachim, the patron saint of fathers.According to Catholic, Anglican and Orthodox traditions, Joachim was the father of Mary, the mother of Jesus. The ultimate films on fatherhood Father's Day tales and traditions Some paganssuggest that Father's Day is closely linked to the Pagan Sun worship, because the sun is thought to be the father of the universe and the celebration of dads falls closely to the summer solstice. Roses are the official flower of Father's Day, with people previously wearing themto church on this date. While this tradition is rarely seen today, sons and daughters used to wear either a red rosein admiration ofa living fatheror a white rosein memory of a deceased father. Sonora Smart Dodd, the founder of Father's Day, selected this flower and it is said that during the early celebrations, shehanded out roses to home-bound fathers, whileon a horse-drawn carriage ride around the city. Father's Day gifts and presents From cutesy cards, socks andtiesto luxurious watches andfantasticcar experiences, Britons present their paternal figures with an array of unique gifts on Father's Day. But,demand for the perfect Father's Day present has led to the increasing commercialisation of the day, withretailers competingto offer the best gifts andconsumers heading to their high street shops and online retailers. According to MuchNeeded, Father's Day is a popular shopping day in both the UK and US, with 75 per cent of men expected to celebrate the occasion this year. While Britons and Americans spend a significant amount on Father's Day each year, on average it only accounts forhalf the spending around Mother's Day. Is it Father's Day, Fathers' Day or Fathers Day? Ah, the age old question. The answer? Many say Father's Day is the correct version. Mother's Day (which has the apostrophe before the 's') set the precedent while Father's Day was still gaining popularity.Anna Jarvis trademarked the term 'Mother's Day' with the apostrophe before the 's' in 1912, saying the word should 'be a singular possessive, for each family to honour its own mother, not a plural possessive commemorating all mothers in the world'. President Woodrow Wilson used this spelling when he formalised Mother'sDay in 1914; this means the correct version of the word is spelled with the apostrophe before the 's'. Father's Day has followed suit, with cards on both sides of the pond including the apostrophe in the same place.

Boeing apologises for 737 MAX crashes as Paris Air Show opens
News ImageA top Boeing executive apologised Monday for two crashes of 737 MAX jets that together killed 346 people, disasters which have pushed safety to the top of the agenda as aerospace firms gathered for the opening of the Paris Air Show. The US aerospace giant is battling to regain the trust of passengers, pilots and regulators after a 737 operated by Indonesia's Lion Air flight crashed last October, followed by an Ethiopian Airlines jet in March. "We are very sorry for the loss of lives as a result of the tragic accidents... our thoughts and our prayers are with their families," Boeing's head of commercial aircraft Kevin McAllister told journalists at the air show.

Google AppointsNew Chief to Oversee Tumultuous China Region
News Image(Bloomberg) -- Alphabet Inc.s Google has appointed a new Greater China head, as the company tries to reset a checkered relationship with Beijing while tensions with Washington flare.Stanley Chen will become managing director of Greater China sales, the company said Monday, taking up a post Scott Beaumont vacated after he was appointed Googles Asia-Pacific president in March. The incoming executive, who will be based in Shanghai, had been general manager of its Taiwan business for eight years.Google takes in about 15% of its annual revenue from the Asia Pacific even though it pulled its search engine from the worlds No. 2 economy around 2010, citing censorship. Advertising from Chinese companies however remains an important business for the internet giant.The company came under fire last year for an unsuccessful attempt to bring a censored version of its search engine back to China. Google has also figured prominently in the trade war as it contends with a ban on Huawei, one of its biggest advertisers and Android customers, and comes under scrutiny for its work on artificial intelligence in the country. Google is also said to be reordering its supply chain to move some hardware production out of China as tariffs on these goods increase.The company declined to make Chen available for comment.To contact the reporter on this story: Shelly Banjo in Hong Kong at sbanjo@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Peter Elstrom at pelstrom@bloomberg.net, Edwin Chan, Colum MurphyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Trump news: President 'fires pollsters' over results as Fox News survey has him trailing every single major Democratic candidate
News ImageDonald Trump's re-election team have cut ties with several pollsters after survey results were leaked to the press indicating the president would lose to his Democratic rivals in four key battleground states in 2020.Those leaks have been accompanied by some more worrisome news for the incumbent: a new poll from Fox News finds him 10-points behind Joe Biden, nine behind Bernie Sanders and also forecast to lose in hypothetical match ups with Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigieg.Mr Trump spent his weekend attacking the Corrupt News Media on Twitter, and accusing The New York Times of a virtual act of treason. Meanwhile, he was honoured by Israel, which renamed a settlement in the Golan Heights in his honour.As those troubling 2020 stats have trained eyes in Washington, the US State Department announced that it would no longer provide aid to Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatamala until those countries take "concrete actions" to deter migrants from making their way north to the US.And, comedian Jon Stewart has continued his fight to get funding for 9/11 victims to pass Congress, with his most recent spat coming with Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell.Please allow a moment for our liveblog to load

Justice Thomas urges U.S. Supreme Court to feel free to reverse precedents
News ImageWriting in a gun possession case over whether the federal government and states can prosecute someone separately for the same crime, Thomas said the court should reconsider its standard for reviewing precedents. Thomas said the nine justices should not uphold precedents that are "demonstrably erroneous," regardless of whether other factors supported letting them stand. "When faced with a demonstrably erroneous precedent, my rule is simple: We should not follow it," wrote Thomas, who has long expressed a greater willingness than his colleagues to overrule precedents.

Insider claims Apple will launch 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch 5G iPhone models next year
News ImageLeaks concerning this fall's upcoming iPhone models continue to trickle out at a steady pace, but some analysts are already looking ahead to 2020. In a research note shared with AnTuTu (via MacRumors), TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo revealed new details about the prospective 2020 smartphone lineup from Apple.According to Kuo, Apple will once again release three iPhone models in 2020, but will make significant changes to the designs of the high-end models. The successors to the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max will supposedly feature 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch displays, respectively, and will both support 5G. The iPhone 11R follow-up will retain a 6.1-inch display, but Kuo believes that all three models will have OLED screens in 2020.Furthermore, Kuo says that every iPhone model will support 5G by 2021, and that Qualcomm will be Apple's primary supplier of 5G modems initially. By 2022 or 2023, though, Apple should have its own 5G modem ready, which would reduce its reliance on Qualcomm (with which Apple recently reached a major settlement agreement).A vast majority of the credible leaks concerning this year's iPhone models suggest that Apple will stick to the familiar notch design for at least one more year. It's hard to see Apple opting for any of the current design alternatives, such as the pop-up camera of the OnePlus 7 Pro or the hole-punch camera of the Galaxy S10. But by 2020, perhaps the prospect of embedding a camera and the necessary sensors beneath the display will be less daunting.Regardless, if Kuo's report is on point, the design of the 2020 iPhone models will be the most significant departure for the smartphone line since the iPhone X was introduced in 2017. The addition of a 5.4-inch model will undoubtedly be a welcome change for those who find the standard iPhone X and XS to be too large as well.

UPDATE 6-New blow to Boeing from engine delay, Airbus long-range rival takes off
News ImageBoeing suffered a fresh setback at the opening of the Paris Airshow on Monday as the U.S. planemaker's engine supplier revealed a delay affecting its all-new 777X jet, while Airbus targeted the middle of the market with a rival plane. GE Aviation said it had found unexpected wear in a component for the GE9X engine it is making for Boeing's 777X, the world's largest twin-engined jet, forcing a delay of several months while it redesigns and tests the part. The aerospace industry's biggest annual event, which alternates with Britain's Farnborough Airshow, is traditionally a slugging match between Airbus and Boeing in the $150 billion a year commercial aircraft market.

As Battle for Tripoli Rages, Libyan Premier Demands New Dialogue
News Image(Bloomberg) -- Libyas internationally recognized premier called for a national conference to end a war that threatens to rip apart the North African oil producer, but stressed he wouldnt back down in the face of an offensive by eastern-based strongman Khalifa Haftar.Fayez Al-Sarraj, in a press briefing Sunday in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, proposed the conference be held with the help of the United Nations and that it decide on a road map for elections to take place in 2019.Sarrajs overture came after the UNs Libya envoy, Ghassan Salame, said Security Council members that include the U.S., Russia and France now agree that the violence thats killed more than 600 people and displaced tens of thousands since April must stop.But the prime ministers suggestion fell short of outlining cease-fire lines or a way to include Haftar in negotiations -- something the strongmans backers say is necessary.Sarraj proposed that the meeting include all Libyan parties and members from every area who call for a peaceful solution, as Haftars forces struggle to advance beyond Tripolis outskirts.The effort marks the latest bid by the embattled premier, whose government is backed by the international community, to end the ongoing crisis in the OPEC member country. Haftars Libyan National Army launched its offensive after securing the countrys east and south.Proxy WarHaftar, who heads the countrys most organized militia and describes his fight against armed groups in western Libya as a battle against terrorism, has received backing from Egypt and United Arab Emirates. Sarraj is getting support from Turkey and Qatar, creating a form of proxy war between Middle Eastern rivals. President Donald Trump had also signaled support for the strongman in a phone call, U.S. officials said.Sarraj stressed anew that there was no military solution to the current crisis and that only a political road map would bring stability. But he pledged to continue fighting against Haftars forces and demanded a probe into what he said could be war crimes committed by them.The Tripoli government has insisted that Haftar withdraw before a cease-fire, something that hes unlikely to accept. Abdullah Thinni, the prime minister of a Haftar-aligned government in the east, told Sky News the proposal was a failed attempt in light of the LNAs advances towards Tripoli.Haftars backers in the U.A.E and Egypt have continued to support him, although they dont believe he can take Tripoli, an official with knowledge of their stance told Bloomberg.On Sunday, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi met the U.A.Es foreign minister, Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan. They repeated their support for the LNAs self-proclaimed fight against terrorism, but also urged a return to stability so Libya can hold elections, according to a statement from the Egyptian presidency.To contact the reporter on this story: Samer Khalil Al-Atrush in Cairo at skhalilalatr@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Tarek El-Tablawy at teltablawy@bloomberg.net, Michael Gunn, Paul AbelskyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Saudi crown prince accuses rival Iran of tanker attacks
News ImageSaudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said in remarks published Sunday that the kingdom will not hesitate to confront Iranian threats to its security. Tensions in the Persian Gulf have escalated since the U.S. sent an aircraft carrier strike group and other military assets to the region in what it says is defensive posturing against alleged Iranian threats. The crisis takes root in the Trump Administration's decision to re-impose punishing economic sanctions on Tehran and its oil exports, after unilaterally withdrawing the U.S. from the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.
