US mass shootings, Democratic debates, America vs China

Mass shootings in the US

Three mass shootings took place in the US in three different states – Texas, Ohio and Illinois. 29 people were killed in the attacks, while almost 50 were injured.

On Saturday afternoon in El Paso, Texas, 21-year-old Patrick Crusius opened fire at a supermarket.

In the wake of the tragedies, representatives of the Democratic Party called on US authorities to introduce control over the circulation of weapons in the country.

Democratic Debates

Democratic candidates hoping to be nominated to run against Trump in 2020 participated in the latest round of debates. While no clear leader emerged from the events, a deep internal party split became apparent.

Among the main topics discussed were healthcare, migration policy, the economy and attacks against Donald Trump.

The party’s presidential and vice-presidential candidates will be determined in July next year at the party congress. The Presidential elections will be held in November 2020.

America VS China

This week, a new wave hit in the trade war between China and the United States. On August 1, Trump announced his intention to introduce 10% duties on the remaining Chinese imports, which are estimated at $300 billion.

In response, the Chinese authorities suspended the import of American agricultural products.
