WASHINGTON (AP) — It was a week of caustic rhetoric by President Donald Trump over Syria and the impeachment inquiry, and truth often took a beating.

21. Stocks drop again to worst loss in weeks on economy worries -

NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks tumbled again on Wednesday as worries about a weakening global economy boomeranged around the world.

For a second straight day, the S&P 500 dropped to its worst loss in five weeks. The latest wave of selling came after a report showed hiring by U.S. companies slowed more than economists expected last month, with mining and manufacturing particularly weak. It added to worries that shook markets a day earlier, when a reading on U.S. manufacturing showed the sharpest contraction in a decade.

22. Stocks sink as US manufacturing shrinks again amid trade war -

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks sank to their worst loss in five weeks on Tuesday after a surprisingly limp report on the nation's manufacturing stirred worries about the economy's strength.

The report showed that manufacturing weakened in September for the second straight month as President Donald Trump's trade war with China dragged on confidence and factory activity. It dashed economists' expectations that August's contraction had been an aberration, and stocks and bond yields immediately reversed course to drop sharply lower following the report.

23. AP FACT CHECK: Trump wrongly blames Fed for factory woes -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is wrongly blaming the Federal Reserve for a slump in U.S. manufacturing.

In a tweet Tuesday, he essentially argues that the Fed's rate hikes last year pushed up the value of the dollar, which makes U.S. goods more expensive overseas. His argument is a distortion that attempts to downplay the negative consequences from escalating a trade war with China.

24. US manufacturing sinks to decade-low, stoking economic fear -

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. factory activity hit a decade low last month in the face of President Donald Trump's trade conflicts, adding to a weakening picture of the global economy.

The Institute for Supply Management, an association of purchasing managers, said Tuesday that its manufacturing index shrank for a second straight month to 47.8% in September, down from 49.1% in August. Any reading below 50 signals that the sector is contracting.

25. Stocks climb as markets cap turbulent quarter with calm end -

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks climbed on Monday and gave one last nudge to ensure the S&P 500 emerged from yet another tumultuous quarter with a modest gain.

As has been the case throughout the quarter, movements in President Donald Trump's trade war with China helped drive the market on Monday. Investors found encouragement after China said that its top trade negotiator will lead talks with the United States that are expected to take place next week. The Trump administration also calmed some worries that it may limit U.S. investment in Chinese companies.

26. AP FACT CHECK: Trump untruths on Ukraine, impeachment fight -

WASHINGTON (AP) — A whistle blew, an impeachment inquiry swung into motion and the president at the center of it all rose defiantly to his own defense, not always in command of the facts.

A CIA officer, in a complaint filed under federal whistleblower protections that preserve anonymity, alleged President Donald Trump abused his office in pressing for a Ukrainian investigation of a Democratic rival, Joe Biden. That revelation persuaded Democrats to move ahead with an inquiry that could produce articles of impeachment. Trump has reacted with anger, with weekend tweets that made the groundless accusation that Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, the Intelligence Committee chairman taking the lead in the impeachment review , criticized him "illegally."

27. Iranian president: US should end 'maximum pressure' policy -

NEW YORK (AP) — Iranian President Hassan Rouhani urged the United States on Thursday to "cease this policy of maximum pressure" on his nation, saying it was driving the possibility of negotiations even further away.

28. US stocks fall, bond prices rise as investors turn cautious -

Stocks ended modestly lower and bond prices rose on Wall Street Thursday as investors turned cautious, shifting money into lower-risk holdings.

29. Japan welcomes US trade pact, but automakers appeal for help -

TOKYO (AP) — Japanese automakers on Thursday urged the government to do more to support the industry after their government signed a trade deal with the U.S. that kept auto tariffs unchanged.

31. Trump: US, Japan agree on 1st stage of new trade agreement -

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.S. and Japan on Wednesday signed a limited trade deal that will eliminate tariffs and expand market access on farm, industrial and digital products.

32. Is premium economy airfare worth the money? -

As coach travel gets more cramped, airlines have added “premium economy” sections that promise more space and comfort – often at a substantially higher price.

Air carriers have discovered many travelers are willing to pay two or even three times the prevailing economy fare to escape the crowded confines of coach. The extra money is mostly profit for the airlines, which is why so many now offer this class of service.

33. Nissan paying $15M, Ghosn $1M to settle SEC fraud charges -

34. AP FACT CHECK: Trump's twisted reality on guns, environment -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is twisting reality on gun control and the environment.

Pressed over the weekend for his position on gun legislation, the president declined to answer whether he would support expanded background checks in the wake of deadly mass shootings and blamed Democrats in Congress for "doing nothing" on the issue. That's not true. The Democratic-controlled House in February approved legislation, which has since stalled because the Senate hasn't acted. Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he won't move on it or any gun legislation until Trump says what he wants.

35. Japan central bank stands pat after Fed rate cut -

TOKYO (AP) — Japan's central bank opted Thursday to keep its monetary policy unchanged despite the growing signs of trouble that prompted the Federal Reserve to cut its benchmark rate.

37. US stock indexes edge up as oil gives up half of its spurt -

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stock indexes ticked closer to record heights on Tuesday, but the modest moves belied plenty of churning underneath.

Oil prices and energy stocks slumped to give back nearly half of their huge gains from a day earlier. Rising prices for technology stocks and companies that sell to consumers, though, more than made up for those losses. Treasury yields fell a second straight day as the Federal Reserve opened a two-day meeting on interest rates, where investors expect it to announce a cut for the second time in as many months.

38. Researchers: AI surveillance is expanding worldwide -

42. Oil prices jump as attack on Saudi plant jolts supply -

Global energy prices spiked Monday by 15% after a weekend attack on key oil facilities in Saudi Arabia caused the worst disruption to world supplies on record.

U.S. manufacturers also cut jobs, the survey found. The data has fueled concerns that the broader U.S. economy is weakening.

52. AP FACT CHECK: Trump's illusory claims of gains from tariffs -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is painting a false picture of a U.S. economy unaffected by his trade war with China and other countries.

53. Ex-Gov. Haslam won't rule out future public sector position -

NASHVILLE (AP) — Ex-Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam isn't ruling out a future run for office, though he says he isn't currently planning on it.
