23. AP FACT CHECK: Trump's torrent of falsehoods, Biden missteps -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Playing defense on his handling of the coronavirus, President Donald Trump is letting the falsehoods fly.

48. What the Fed's rate cut means for you -

The Federal Reserve has cut its benchmark interest rate again, big news for the U.S. economy but something that will likely have a muted impact on Americans' personal finances, experts say.

That's because the reduction doesn't offset the increases of recent years. And as the key rate creeps closer to zero, financial institutions are less eager to pass borrowing benefits along. Lower rates could also further dampen the perks of savings.

49. Friendly fire: Trump's trade fights target US allies, too -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has risked turmoil in the financial markets and damage to the U.S. economy in waging his trade war with China, America's top strategic rival.

53. What to Watch: Cohen's testimony could deal damage to Trump -

WASHINGTON (AP) — There'll be much talk of a "rat," hush money for onetime paramours and the 2016 presidential campaign.

But did President Donald Trump break the law?

That's the key question Michael Cohen will be expected to answer with documents on Wednesday during a Capitol Hill drama that sounds more like a mobster movie every day.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The special counsel's Russia probe is "close to being completed," the acting attorney general said Monday in the first official sign that the investigation may be wrapping up.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump stalked out of his negotiating meeting with congressional leaders Wednesday — "I said bye-bye," he tweeted soon after — as efforts to end the 19-day partial government shutdown fell into deeper disarray over his demand for billions of dollars to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. Hundreds of thousands of federal workers now face lost paychecks on Friday.

58. White House, congressional Democrats see no deal on shutdown -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Chances look slim for ending the partial government shutdown any time soon.

59. Trump signals no end to shutdown: 'You have to have a wall' -

60. Washington's new power standoff: Trump, Pelosi -

WASHINGTON (AP) — They haven't spoken in days, not since President Donald Trump called to congratulate Nancy Pelosi on Democrats' election night win.

But they don't really need to.

Two big-name heirs to big-city honchos — Trump and Pelosi each had fathers who were political power players in their home towns — they've rubbed elbows on the Manhattan social scene for years.

63. Analysis: With 'America First,' where do human rights rank? -

WASHINGTON (AP) — If it's an "America First" presidency, where does that rank human rights?

President Donald Trump's refusal to put public pressure on Saudi Arabia over the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi is raising a question that has dogged his foreign policy. In dealing with Russia, across Asia and, this week, in the Mideast, Trump has often appeared comfortable downplaying concerns about rights abuses and dismissing the importance of U.S. moral leadership. The onetime real estate mogul is as likely to let U.S. financial or security interests guide his choices and his words.

64. Analysis: Trump's Saudi bet has become much riskier -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump put a big and risky bet on Saudi Arabia and its 33-year-old crown prince. It's now become much riskier.

From the early days of his presidency, Trump and his foreign policy team embraced the kingdom and Mohammed bin Salman as the anchors of their entire Middle East strategy. From Iran and Iraq to Syria, Yemen and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the administration gambled that Saudi Arabia, effectively run by the prince, could credibly lead, and willingly pay for, a "Pax Arabica" in a part of the world from which Trump is keen to disengage.

65. Trump tells AP he won't accept blame if GOP loses House -

74. US demands wholesale changes in Iran policies post-nuke deal -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration on Monday demanded that Iran make wholesale changes in its military and regional policies or face "the strongest sanctions in history," as it sought to turn up heat on Tehran after President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from a landmark nuclear deal.

75. On the brink: US and China threaten tariffs as fears rise -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The world's two biggest economies stand at the edge of the most perilous trade conflict since World War II. Yet there's still time to pull back from the brink.

76. China may hike tariffs on US pork, aluminum, other goods -

WASHINGTON (AP) — They spent their first year in Washington as an untouchable White House power couple, commanding expansive portfolios, outlasting rivals and enjoying unmatched access to the president.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Investors seem certain about this: The Federal Reserve is going to raise interest rates this week for the third time this year.

88. As interest rates rise, banks are paying more for deposits -

NEW YORK (AP) — Slowly, but surely, being a saver is paying off again.
